Jailed for having sex with teen, man faces new abuse charge

September 24, 2013

A Marietta man who was sentenced in August for having sex with a 15-year-old girl has now been charged with the rape of an 11-year-old girl that occurred while he was out on bond on the first sexual......

Just to clarify my previous statement. I said consensual sex. Now there is no reason for any man to have consensual sex with a minor. The only problem is that the girl in that case lied about her age and admitted to lying about her age. Again, you don't have all the facts!!!

I am ashamed at how small some of our minds can be! I know this family and the man who did this Many of them are like my own family and there is NOTHING that this young girl or her family did to deserve what this man did to her. None of them are to blame! People are so quick to judge what they do not know. Surely you know that the news does not relate all the facts for various reasons. You don't have all the facts and you don't need all the facts! The first case involved consensual sex with a minor, oh, but you wouldn't have known that because you don't have all the facts! The second case involves the repeated rape of a child which the newspaper reported as having gone on for around a year. There is nothing this family did to deserve the small minded comments of small minded people. Use your minds and think before you post something for the world to see. Thankfully the girl involved will unlikely see any of these hateful comments from uninformed people.

Rape is about power exerted over a person and the weapon is sexual in nature.

Sexual orientation is about the type of person one finds sexually attractive. This man finds pubescent girls attractive, child molesters find younger children attractive. Adults find adults attractive. Morals and values are cultural, so in our society, exploiting children is wrong. Hence this man's actions are illegal. Statutory rape yes, and that's because of age not violence on the part of the perpetrator. I'm not defending him, just trying to explain that attraction is ingrained in each of us, whether it's legal or not. Girls this age aren't mature enough to make good decisions so parents need to protect them. It's their job. It's parents responsibility to buy clothing appropriate for children. Dressing like a hooker cheapens a girl, sends the wrong message. Plenty of appropriate, stylish clothing is available.

chasing, you have a point. But have you bought clothes for a young teen lately? That's all they sell. Unless you sew, and what teen wants homemade clothes, that's all that's out there on the market to buy. They want to look good too. It's NOT what they're wearing anyway. Men should learn to get some control and just WALK AWAY!

newworld, kids might be having sex everywhere as you say, but what girl would WANT to have sex with a man twice her age? Willingly at that? Again, this man is LUCKY it wasn't my daughter or granddaughters! There would be NO trial for HIM!

What a girl is wearing does not cause rape. Rapists cause rape. I dont care if a CHILD walks out buck nekkid and says here I am, a MAN says go put your clothes on and walks away. How young does a girl have to be before some of you stop blaming the child. Are 4 year olds in ruffly panties too sexy as well? I agree that girls today look like hoochies, but this is not the cause of rape. Rape is a crime of POWER.

Chasing, the style of teen clothes may not be up to your standard of what you think is tasteful,and you might not approve, but it does not give anyone a right to rape.

newworld) I am sorry you people keep blaming the guy's. I no one is older than the other. But just look how these kid's are dressing for school & walking down the street's. AWFUL but who buy's these CLOTHES for these GIRLS ?MOM & DAD does. These kid's are earning this sex stuff from WHO? I really feel for these babies.It all start's at HOME & SCHOOL. We were never aoud to dres like this for school & they should NOT be aloud today. Shame on the school system,board members. Put a dress CODE on for these KIDS. My Husband & I went to a FOOTBALL game one night & the (GIRLS) were all most NAKED.Bodies were PAINTED where their should of been CLOTHES.Short's upto their cheaks,TOP'S were like a BRA. We just shook our head's I could not believe what I was seeing. About the Children Services well that's a (JOKE) they may take the kid's out of the home for alittle while but they get RETURNED soon after. A (LEVY) or NOT would not make a difference. S O R R Y but that's LI

New world ( old world more your style) your solution is to keep all daughters off the street as if they cause this criminal to assault them? As if its their fault and not his? Maybe you would feel better if they wore burkas also? You claim little kids playing grown up games ? Caused this slime to rape? Your comments are vile. Ask not is right, and the school, were you there? Are you sking this stuff up as you go in order to defend your strange viewpoint? Are you related to this crud . You seem to want blame society as you see it, for his actions. You say he was wrong but.... Like your position can be defended,

Don’t care if you liked my comment or not. The truth is kids are having sex everywhere with anyone. They have sex at school, at the mall, at sporting events and anywhere else they can find. They have sex as a game, as a dare, as a challenge or just to have it. I know of one school that banned turning the lights out because 8 and 9 year old kids was having sex in the classroom at movie time. It is a sick world and what the guy did was wrong, but these little kids are playing grown up games.

I posted and don't have a clue where it went!

This man told the girls mother he had had sex with the 11 yr. old and he's still living? He's one lucky man. Had this been my daughter/granddaughter HE WOULD NOT BE! Nuff said!

Rankin..although not easily done,go back thru previous Times articles and you will see that the "funding problem" was NOT reelected last election cycle.She was dead set on getting CS moved to another location and merging with other county duties/offices/services and unloading so to speak the cost of running this state mandated office off on property owners..and noone else.Soley the property owner thru a levy.We have seen those results when the library issue came up for a vote.Next step was to SHUT THE GEANEOLOGY DOWN FOR A DAY AT PROPERTY OWNERS EXPENSE to give free services to the production company handling Kelly Washed UP Clarkson to produce a tv show for profit..subsidized by MY property tax bill.BS.If CS cant do the job with budget provided by the county..they need to go to the county and ask for the $$ ALREADY being paid into the general fund.

slogoin - of course nobody would be 'posted' in the house. You stated: " Sounds like this childs parents have mental issues as well.CS should definately be involved in this issue", and I agree, but with cut resources, so goes services, such as getting involved too little, too late. And IF the parents have issues, and IF CS had already been there instead of only able to do the bare minimum, this MAY have ben prevented. A lot of IFs, but unfortunately for a 15 and 11 year old, some of those ifs happened. It always the way - people don't want a service, then moan when it's not there.

AGREED slog, but remember, "we" don't think CS is important enough to even pass a levy, so surprise....less services

Very strange, but not unexpected as every week there there is a similar case. It is just disgusting , an 11 year old/ I would think he knew that was wrong , but did not care . Time for a long sentence , please judge.
