ROYAL CENTER, Ind -- A teenager has found himself in a whole lot of trouble after having a sex with a 12-year-old girl in the school bathroom. 18-year-old Tony Baxter is facing child molestation charges after police say he had sex with a 12-year-old girl in a bathroom at Pioneer High School. Aside from the child molestation charge, he and another unnamed 17-year-old, also faces attempted child molestation and conspiracy to commit child molestation for planning to see the girl again. Because he is guilty of letting the wrong head do the thinking, Baxter is facing 6 to 20 years in jail and having to register as a sex offender. Look, I’m not condoning what he did, but even when I was growing up there were sexually active 12 and 13-year-old girls around who were not only willing, but in a lot of cases they were the aggressor. I’m not saying that Baxter shouldn’t be punished for his stupidity, but the fact that he may spend a time in jail and have to register as an RSO, while the girl gets off unscathed, just seems a bit unfair. If the girl was a willing participant, even if she is not legally able to give consent, I don’t think the teens possible punishment fits the crime…at least not under these particular circumstances. I dunno. Anyone agree? Disagree?

    Yeah, I get what you’re saying Morbid, I know there are some 12 and 13 year old girls who are willing. I think the issue here is he is 18.. a legal adult. He can buy cigarettes, go vote even. He’s bound to know the laws regarding age of consent, we all grow up hearing them. He should be picking up willing college women, not 12 year old children. Didn’t these young men also have some willing you know.. 16 year old and up girls in their school?

    I’m not saying he shouldn’t be punished. I just think the punishment for his offense is too harsh. There probably isn’t a way out for him though, as in order to change the law you would either have to lower the age of consent to a level that does not constitute the norm, or open a can of worms involving 30-year-old men banging 12-year-olds. Which in the eyes of the law, is pretty much how this scenario is seen. In the end the best thing you can hope for is that teenage boys can control their hormones when placed in this kind of predicament. I just wish a life didn’t have to be practically ruined when a teen cannot.

    I agree that this guy might be getting the short end of the stick here. Children seem to be more sexually active younger and younger these days. But the law is the law. At 18, he should known that he was going to get into trouble for this. This is going to be one hell of a lesson learned! Wait a minute, I just noticed that junior high is mixed with highschoolers. Really?! There is something terribly wrong with that.

    I believe as parents we have the responsibility to actually educate our children about sex including things such as age of consent and appropriate behavior. I know it’s not a comfortable topic but rather have a little discomfort and know my son isn’t out banging “little girls” even if they ARE sexually active (also gonna teach my daughter the same sort of things and try to PREVENT her from becoming sexually active WAY to young). That being said, I have been the younger girl (16 not 12) in this sort of situation and it is absolutely humiliating to sit in a police office having to be interrogated about things you would rather not tell strangers, much less with you parent right there and KNOWING the guy is gonna bear most of the blame (even tho I did not offer up any info except that I was a willing participant in all activities) which helped a little but still this girl is probably too young to even realize what the consequences of her actions should they “get caught”.

    It is an interesting and hotly debated case you put forth, Morbid. But I agree with you.

    The age of consent is wholly arbitrary all across the globe. When it sure looks like teens/young teens are beginning to evolve towards developing early and becoming more active early, the prudish societal laws seem to be tightening; Canada, for instance, UPPED their AOC in 2008 from 14 to 16. In many areas of Mexico though, AOC is 12. So this “kid” would’ve likely have had no problems had this happened in Mexico. Who’s going to say who is ready for what kind of activity? I don’t know, can’t tell you…but I can say that the randomness of the AOC in each state and each country is pretty ridic.

    Morbid, I see exactly what you’re talking about here. It will ruin his life a lot further than just being labeled a sex offender. We had a young guy at our prison system who was doing time for statutory rape. He didn’t have much time left and his victim was 17yrs old and the perp was 22 or 23. Anywho he didn’t have, but a little under 2wks left to do before his time was up. 4 guys heard he was getting out soon and raped him. He didn’t want to fess up to it happening and refused medical treatment. The problem is I knew that at least one of the guys that raped him had AIDS.

    At the same time, him being a legal man at 18 now, and having sex with 12 year old girls rather than finding girls his age or at least who are also legal.. how do we know that him liking little girls won’t be a life long trend? We read all the time how pedophiles often start at young ages. Most 12 year old girls aren’t even erm, developed, not just mentally for sex, but physically. Sure, some are going through puberty, but the majority, still have the bodies of “young boys”. That could be why they are cracking down now on him, perhaps catching a pedo at his start. I don’t know. I just know he’s old enough to know the laws regarding consent and chose to break those laws. Right or wrong, the laws are there to protect kids in the long run of things.

    I agree with you Morbid… haven’t commented in a few weeks b/c been super busy but this story really does bother me… IF THE GIRL WAS A WILLING PARTICIPANT I DO NOT BELIEVE THAT PRISON TIME IS THE ANSWER… there should be some sort of punishment but prison time… girls that hit puberity have crushes all the time on 18/19 year olds… and the fact that one of them got their wish does not make me want to send the guy to prison… now when you reach 21 and are still trolling the middle school for dates, i got a much bigger problem with that even if the girl is willing.

    That is rough to be labeled a RSO for life at the age of 18 – I suppose his defense could be, “But your honor, she had the body of a 16 year old!” Was the girl a willing participant? How old did she say she was? The article does not say but these are important questions. Several states have implemented a ‘Romeo and Juliet’ law, providing exceptions to teen consensual sex and widening the age gap for consensual teens.

    I don’t think anyone would knowingly suggest that a teenager having sex with a younger teenager is a child predator – here consensual sex laws read like this: Anyone under the age of 13-years-old and having sex is breaking the law, even if both parties are the same age and give consent. If the person over the age of 18-years-old has consensual sex with his 15-year-old girlfriend or younger that too is breaking the law and could lead to a lifetime label as a sex offender.

    Sadly this guy will be stigmatized for life because of a youthful transgression with a slutty 12 year old. He is 18 and considered an adult and therefor he should have known better. Bad stupid luck on his part he should not be branded a child molester for having sex with an underage girl who may or may not have told him she was older than 12. Trust me, we have a lot of slutty 12 and 13 year old girls in my neighborhood – I let my boys know (ages 18 & 13) that they have to realize and understand that what they do for 30 minutes in the back seat/bathroom/wherever could label them a sex offender for the rest of their lives and could affect their ability to vote, get a job, go to college etc.,

    Sadly this guy will be stigmatized for life because of a youthful transgression with a slutty 12 year old. He is 18 and considered an adult and therefor he should have known better. Bad stupid luck on his part he should not be branded a child molester for having sex with an underage girl who may or may not have told him she was older than 12. Trust me, we have a lot of slutty 12 and 13 year old girls in my neighborhood – I let my boys know (ages 18 & 13) that they have to realize and understand that what they do for 30 minutes in the back seat/bathroom/wherever could label them a sex offender for the rest of their lives and could affect their ability to vote, get a job, go to college etc.,

    Sometimes I check for sex offenders living on my block. If the offender was maybe around 30 yrs old at the time of the offense and the victim was under 16, I’m thinking, pedophile and should be on the registry. However when the offender was 18 and the victim was under 16, I start wondering if it was a teenage girlfriend/boyfriend relationship and if that’s the case, I’m apt to think the charge and having to register as a sex offender forever is perhaps unjust. I’m not telling how old I was when I lost my virginity or how old the guy was but had he been arrested and charged, it wouldn’t have been fair. For the reasons that 12 is pretty young, it’s a fairly big gap between 12 and 18, it happened in a school bathroom and the that there is another boy charged makes me want more info on the case but initially I’m thinking this is (2) high school kids dating, having sex and one just happened to turn 18 recently.

    I agree with Morbid. Also she was in there haveing sex too, she gets off completely free? As far as age of concent goes I think its kinda of different depending on the person, I know people in their 20s and 30s who shouldnt concent because of their mentalitly. I dont think it should be a rape charge if she concented… I know she is young but still, I would imagine she says its rape so she can keep out of trouble…

    I hear what you are saying. The sentence, if the girl was a willing participant, sounds excessive. No doubt this guy should have thought is out before engaging in sex with a girl (or a boy) that age given the well reported laws regarding sex with minors.

    Two things, I believe, need to be considered: 1. Wash the girl mature enough to know the consequences of being casually sexually active (pregnancy, disease, potentially no love or bond)? and 2. An 18 year old male (or female) is immature and most likely still emotionally separates, mentally, himself still from adulthood… I would be so bold as to say even approaching 25 years old it is the rare person who feels completely equal with all adults.

    A short sentence and no registry on the first offense especially if the girl was willing and the act was not violent. This is just another fucked up issue in our legal system.

    Just like in some countries grown men, 30s and up are MARRYING young girls by the dozen who are no older than 12-15 and having children. It’s such a social standard. However, by our standards, he was in the wrong.

  • Gee

    I have the tenancy to go with I think it is excessive if the kid has to register as a RSO the rest of his life. He deserves the jail time, He broke the law. I say this but it depends on his intentions, her willingness. The problem I see that the school has these kids mixed in 7-12 and I think it may have helped blur the lines for this kid.

    I’m not sure about this particular school but many Indiana schools have a jr./sr. high that starts in 7th grade. It’s a cheaper option than a seperate (yet more appropriate!) middle school. I think it’s asking for trouble. I know I was able to meet up with my 17yr old boyfriend (I was 13), right in school. My parents freaked out!

    12 year olds can’t consent. That’s the point of the law. So whether she said yes, stripped off her clothes and begged for it or ran screaming and hid in the bathroom to save herself, doesn’t matter. Society has chosen to protect children that age. Lots of girls think this is a way to be popular and are too young to understand what really going on. If he was 14, I’d agree with you, but at 18 you know better, unless he was developmentally delayed. Just because a young girl wants it, doesn’t mean you have to give it to her. The brain development and emotional maturity of a 12-year-old is far behind that of an 18-year-old. And what 18-year-old is hanging around with 7th graders anyway? I’ll tell you who…the ones looking for some young stuff.

    Children might be more promiscuous in this society, but they’ve been having sex at that age since the beginning of time and could be married in some parts of the world even today. Isn’t all of Christianity based on the story of a pregnant 14-year-old?

    18 is arbitrary, but some number needs to be chosen. Personally, I think it should be the distance between the ages like it is in some areas. Say, 2 or 3 years. 18 and 12 is way too big a gap.

    And what about children who go home to step-brothers and mamma’s boyfriends and momma’s boyfriend’s sons who are that age? Do we let them off when they coerce the child into sex?

    when i was growing up the rual school i attended started highschool at 7th grade, it wasn’t until i moved into the city that i saw they had 6th-8th before you hit highschool. it’s pretty common.

    the girl needs to get into trouble by mom and dad, i would be livid if i found out my kids were doing that.

    The thing is when you’re 18 & you’re trolling for girls that no matter how sexually active they are, they still like Hello Kitty or Justin Bieber there’s something wrong with you. Maybe you lack the self confidence needed to try & chat up a girl your age. Even if you are considered a god by those tweenies, it’s not right to try & actually “get” one of these girls to even go out with you unless it’s out the door of a building.

    On that subject, I was in the 7th grade & I was developed already. I had a classmate that was less developed than I was & she was not only sexually active but got pregnant too. She LOVED Hello Kitty & occasionally wore pigtails still…

    The reason kids are developing earlier is because of the hormones in the food we eat.

    Little girls, like 12 year olds, who look for attention with men, have usually been molested or introduced to sex somewhere. The reason they do this, is because they feel like they are trash. They become sexually promiscuous, because they want the attention, and feel if they get it, maybe they really are pretty/smart/desired/popular. Girls in any society are looked down upon. But a man of 18 who uses that willingness to ‘belong’ to score from a child, should be locked up. That’s why the laws are so harsh. You cannot become that age without knowing the law about this. If you continue with the contact, you are a pedophile. Period. A child cannot give consent.

    Parents, if you have boys, educate them about the law and sex. If you have girls, educate them about what happens to guys even if they’re willing and underage. They have to take responsibility for some of this, too. They have to know what can happen. It’s sad that we have to do this earlier and earlier, but it’s a fact of life now. We can’t get around it. Sometimes the little girl’s life is ruined too, when she gets pregnant. She’s having a baby while she’s still a child. A boy can’t provide child support. That’s how babies end up abused.
    If they have no idea about the consequences of adult sexual activity, they certainly don’t know how to be parents. *Hops down off soapbox*

    She’s twelve! He’s a perv! I do think it’s a bit extreme, but there has to be a line. I would want to kick his ass beyond belief if that was my daughter, and anyone who wouldn’t should not be a parent.

    What I don’t get is why he’s getting it so hard when there are 30-40 year old men out there doing the same sick shit and getting a slap on the wrist. At least he was closer to her age but it still doesn’t make it right in my opinion.

  • captaingrumpy

    I believe there has to be a certain age difference between the offender and the victim for it to be a sex offenders charge. Stat rape would be good enough.

    I’ve seen some questionable things passing through DD but you’re really saying that an 18 year old fucking a 6th grader is normal? Because when I was 18 I never wanted to fuck a 6th grader.

    And so what if some 12-year-old is damaged – probably due to getting molested- that means it’s OK for a 18 year old to fuck her in a bathroom, then pimp her out to a friend? And that doesn’t stink of predation to you?

    We’re not talking about a freshman and a senior, SHE”S TWELVE. And this adult was fucking her in a bathroom and arraigning for others to do the same. He belongs on a registry. And you feel sorry for him because … you think there’s such a thing as a 12-year-old whore? This girl needs a friend not some dude setting up gang bangs and he knew that, he preyed on a 6th grader and it’s disgusting to see sympathy for someone like that.

    When I was 18 we made fun of the 20 year olds who came back to pick up their senior girlfriends. Now people have to argue that a 18 year old banging a SIXTH GRADER in a bathroom and then setting her up with another dude is some sort of pervert? Really?

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    Rob, re-read what I wrote. Not once did I say it was ok or that it was normal. I also never said the teen shouldn’t be punished. I’m surprised you implied I said otherwise.

    My point is that I know from experience that there were sexually active 12-year-olds in my day, and there is now. They weren’t whores or mentally damaged…they were just unsupervised and well, sexually active. They also happen to be fine, upstanding, married mothers with kids today — just like the guys who fucked them.Hormones are a powerful thing, and I just hate to see an 18-year-old’s entire life ruined because he succumbed to them and will now be punished under the laws were set up for a different type of criminal..

    Daily leching after meh local TV news milfs is lame enough, but calling a 12-year-old an “aggressor” is pretty low.

    It’s also sometimes true. Just because you never experienced in your lifetime doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. I knew of a couple, one of them later murdered and featured on this site. I’m sure some other members here can back me up as well with their own experiences. Hell, I even have a famous case that partially demonstrates what I am talking about:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Richardson_family_murders

  • Siobhan

    From the article that DSC2 linked:

    [...]“…During questioning, the 17-year-old reportedly told police that he was not aware of the girl’s age, but investigators said Baxter confessed to knowing her age and that he also acknowledged having sex with her in a restroom at the school about six weeks earlier.
    “…[...]

    He knew she was only 12 years old, yet he had sex with her despite knowing her age.
    This is exactly why there are age of consent laws, and he knowingly violated the law, and should be punished according to the guidelines established under said laws.
    Under the law, whether anyone agrees with it or not, he is the type of criminal these laws were created to prosecute.
    The reason the girl will “get off unscathed” with regards to criminal prosecution, is because she did not break any laws, nor could she be held liable as a participant due to the fact that she is legally unable to consent to sex at age 12, regardless of any promiscuity on her part that may or may not exist.

    The fact that he knew she was under the AOC, and had sex with her regardless of the fact, shows a blatant disregard of both the law and any concern for her welfare, in exchange for a few moments of his own personal pleasure.
    He was the adult, and as such, it is his responsibility to draw the line where the law limits his actions and interactions with children, and 12 years old is still legally considered a child, everywhere in the US.

    Many states make provisions under AOC laws which allow adults under a certain age to legally have sex with minors, providing the minor is at or above the age of consent.
    Had the girl been of consenting age, we would not be having this discussion.

    I also suspect that had the 12 year old been male, the perception of moral outrage would be higher, and many would demand that he be placed on RSO status upon being paroled.

    I don’t know why anyone feels the need to point out the law and how it works. I am fully aware of why the boy is being charged. My comments were to open discussions on teenagers being labeled sex offenders for life as if they were child predators, especially if the sex act was with a willing participant. Not everything is black and white and this is one of those situations I feel falls into a grey area when concerning punishments as defined by the law. I didn’t think my comments would be for others to explain what he did was illegal or accuse me of condoning it. I thought I posted this on D’D, not on nancy Grace’s or Levi Page’s Facebook Page. :P

    As for the suspect being make, you are probably correct. i also suspect that had the roles been reversed, no one would have given a shit.

    my guess is their highschool starts at 7th grade (a lot of schools lump 7-12 all together) – i was 12 in the 7th grade.

  • Siobhan

    For the circumstances surrounding this case, the legalities and their definitions dictate towards established societal ethics, and it’s difficult to contemplate one without regarding the other.
    No offense towards you or your knowledge/understanding of the laws was intended, and I apologize if it seemed that way. :-*

    Laws aside, I disagree with your opinion that this case falls into a grey area, due to the fact that he admitted knowing the girl was 12, and he continued to engage in sexual intercourse, despite this knowledge. Had he stopped there, it would be easier to think of the penalties being overly harsh, but he arranged for a future meeting for the purposes of sex, and brought another male teen along to participate.
    When it comes to sex, willing or unwilling, children are off limits, and she is not only legally, but also morally and ethically still a child at age 12.
    Had she been a few years older, but still under AOC, and he was alone in the involvement, then I would certainly agree with you, but in this instance, IMO, the laws are in place to prevent people like him from child predation.

    Had the roles been reversed, most may not have cared, but I am one of the few that still thinks Debra Lafave should have done some time in prison, no matter how pretty her attorney thought she looked.

    I disagree with you in the little girls introduced to sex early or being molested. I know for a fact that most girls that got pregnant in Jr. year in my grade (private school too, where they actually pay attention to you) (oh & we got 1 pregnant girl since the 7th to 12th grade) were never molested. They were just precocious & had older siblings that they hung out with which usually made them smart mouthed & precocious because of what they heard. This was in 1994, when little girls played with barbies & dolls that didn’t look like hookers (Bratz Dolls) or cellphones…

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    Siobhan, the grey area I am talking about is the punishment, not the fact that he got charged. You truly feel that in this particular case, sending this teen to prison and making him register as a sex offender for the rest of his life is for the best for all involved? And I’m not looking for a “well, that’s the law” answer…I mean personally, do you feel that’s adequate?

  • Anonymous

    Kids do what kids have been doing since the beginning of time. 1/3 of all registered sex offenders are just that. Romeo and Juliet cases. But the registry won’t tell you that. It will list the child’s age at the time of the event and the RSO’s age as the present age.

    There is a war against sex in this country. Private prisons for profit and tracking systems in every county. BIG money is to be made with the scarlet letter of Sex Offender.

  • Siobhan

    Yes, in this case, even from what little we know of it, I do feel that the potential punishment is adequate, and I would have no problem as a juror sentencing Tony Baxter to RSO status in the penalty phase.
    Not simply because that is the law, or that I would be instructed as a juror to deliberate the penalty based upon the law, but because I personally feel in this particular case that Tony Baxter knowingly preyed upon a person he knew was a child for sexual gratification, and he then conspired with another person for both of them to meet with the girl for a future sexual rendezvous.
    Due to these circumstances, I believe that he would have continued this behavior with not only this girl, but also with any other young girl that would willingly put out for him and possibly for his friends, regardless of her age, had he not been caught on this occasion.

    As I said before, had the girl been just a few years older, say even 14, then I would not feel comfortable with him receiving RSO status, and possibly not even prison time.

  • Anonymous

    I don’t believe there is any confirmation that he was pimping her out and/or setting up a gang bang. At this point, I think (and I may be wrong) is that the ‘other boy’ was arrested because of his association with both the 12 and 18 yr old. That he knew about, was perhaps present when the sexual encounter happened and there were plans to see the girl again.

    I also don’t think anyone here is suggesting that 18 yr olds having sex w/ 12 yr old is normal. It is not. My take on the question presented was whether the punishment he’s facing fits the crime. Should this situation (an eightteen yr old high school student) carry the same consequences as say, a 30 yr. old man having sex with a (hypothetically sexual active) 12 yr old.?

    As with any story posted here, we don’t have all the facts and can only share our individual perspective of what may have happened.

  • TARHEELS BABY!

    In the BBC a couple days ago was a story about a 10-year-old Romanian girl who had given birth to the child of her 13-year-old husband. The story said that it is culturally normal for children to be married at that age, though. And in more technologically primitive cultures, psychological adulthood comes sooner. I think sociologists are saying now that in modern America, adolescence is continuing (in young men) until they are almost 30 these days… where an African Tribesman might become an adult in his early teens.

    Good link. Fits right into this discussion.

    Assuming that all involved were presently attending this school, I think that it being a junior -senior high school housing 7th thru 12th graders together does play a role.

    While attending a particular catholic grammar school (4th and 5th grade maybe), that housed both a grammar and high school. The school went out of their way to keep the two separate. In fact, I’m not even sure I ever caught even a glimpse of a h.s.’er the 2 -3 years I attended. There’s a reason they did this.

    A registry does include a category. Whether it was a simple, aggravated, predatory, 1st degree, 2nd degree etc. offense but most people won’t make that distinction when finding out a person is on there. Unless you know the difference, a sex offender is a sex offender.

  • Siobhan

    The source linked by the FP article states the 17 year old will be facing charges of attempted child molestation, and conspiracy to commit child molestation.
    I doubt that an attempted child molestation charge would be warranted if the 17 year old was merely associated with the two and only had knowledge of their relationship.
    The 17 year has stated to LE that he was unaware of the girl’s age, if true, then even a conspiracy charge would be doubtful.
    Of course, I could be wrong, and LE is just throwing out every charge they can to see what sticks to either defendant…

  • Anonymous

    The entire sentence reads:

    Aside from the child molestation charge, he and another unnamed 17-year-old, also faces attempted child molestation and conspiracy to commit child molestation for planning to see the girl again.

    Nothing matters about this girl other than her age. I don’t care what she did. The guy was 18. You think he didn’t know what he was doing was real, real wrong? And, an 18 year old who wants a 12 year old, and then enlists his friend for a gang rape, needs to be taken out of circulation NOW. Otherwise, you can report on him here later for sex crimes you DO think “count.” I’d better never see you say, about some f’d-up rapist/pedo that there were “early signs” and “no one did anything about it.”

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    I’m not being given valuable feedback. I am getting hand-wringing, knee-jerking responses from some paranoid, scared, clueless individuals who are basing their decisions on their particular life experiences while sharpening their pitchforks. Which is normal, as that’s how most people do things around here and on other crime sites. I just happen to know that in certain situations like this one, you are not dealing with a pedophile or a child predator, and I do not feel as if someone should be punished as one. I really do not know how much clearer I can make it, and I guess I am done trying. You guys carry on.as usual. But do know this,

    I know from personal first-hand knowledge as well as the responses I have been getting from messages to me on FB and emails, that there are women out there who were sexually active at 12 and knew what they were doing — whether they were telling the boy how old they really were or not (a the law really wouldn’t care). This was happening when I was a kid and it is happening now. Some of the older boys who are taking part of this are making stupid decisions, yes, but they are not pedophiles or preying on young children. They are just horny and dumb. And for the last time, I do not feel the same sentence handed to a child predator, active pedophile should also apply to them. Punish them, sure, but not for life.

    With that, I’m done with this conversation as it seems I am responding to walls who keep replying back with definitions of the law (which I am full aware of) and telling my what he did was illegal (no shit) while attempting to remind people I never condoned what he did. I just do no like the punishment he may be getting.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    I shudder to think of how scared you must be living in society today with all of this bad news being broadcast 24 hours a day. You are seriously assume that this kid is a sexual predator because he got caught doing what a lot of teens are doing (he was one of two charged, remember) and that he is just as apt to fuck a 12-year-old as a 30-year-old because of this? There is no pattern of this teen doing this repeatedly with ther 12-year-olds. Just one who happened to be sexually active.

    What if the parents approved of this particular relationship? Not that they did in this case, but just a hypothetical. But if they did, should the boy still be charged along with the parents?

    It seems you think we should also sentence teens caught with weed as if they were trafficking drugs because hey, who knows they may in the future. Or teens drinking alcohol underage as if they had been drunk driving because well, obviously, look at the evidence, they probably will one day. I mean, since some of you take these giant leaps based on a story you know little about regarding individuals you do not know, I’m curious as to what scenarios you don’t jump to the worst case scenario.

  • http://www.dreamindemon.com Morbid

    Exactly. This girl was sexually active and I am guessing, according to some, this girl’s school got unlucky and enrolled two teenage pedophiles who both found her…not two horny teens making a dumb decision and hooking up, illegally, with a sexually active 12-year-old. Oh no, these are two active pedophiles who will be doing this well into their 50s. Get their asses in prison pronto. Think of the children! (*wrings hands so hard they start bleeding*)

    Girls today all wanna be Paris Hilton, rich and slutty! The failure today is with parents and the accepting of everything as normal! The last taboos are falling. Sex with children will be ok one day :(

    Also! If this had been a 12 year old boy with an 18 year old girl, they’d be praising the boy!!

  • tapu

    Actually, what frightens me are attitudes like yours toward children. A 12yo is a child to me; a 12yo can be held to the same level of sexual responsibility as a consenting adult to you. To assuage my fears, if indeed you’re so worried about them, tell me you have no responsibilities for any child’s safety or well-being out there in the real world. You wouldn’t have the first idea about how to care for and protect them.

  • tapu

    First paragraph, yes. Many parents need to be reminded about why children HAVE parents.

    Second paragraph, no, I don’t think so. Adult women who molest young boys also risk prosecution. It doesn’t usually go in that direction; but when it does, we sure hear about it. (See Mary Beth Letourneau.) The 18yo woman you’re hypothesizing would be an adult. Sure, a few warped men will think that boy is “lucky, yuk, yuk, yuk.” Many–included among them some in the justice system–have moved beyond that.

  • Anonymous

    I’m a little shocked that so many of you are justifying he should get a slap on the wrist! It’s like you are saying rape is ok if the female was wearing a short skirt. I don’t care if the 12 yo ripped off her clothes and shook her privates in his face, it was still not acceptable. Snap out of this complacency. There is a huge difference between an 18 yo and a 12 yo in both maturity and emotional responses. To those who have 18 yo kids–would they look forward to hanging out with their 12 yo (sister, next door neighbor, cousin, etc)? I know I didn’t. Furthermore, there is a difference between a boyfriend-girlfriend having sex that are 18 and 16 and a male having easy sex with a 12 yo.

    I am from Royal Center. My Children go to Pioneer Jr. Sr. High School. I know the girl involved personally, Here are some things to ponder that are not mentioned in the article. About a month before this incident happened. Another senior boy who by the way is quite popular and on the football team was expelled from school for having “raped, coerced” 5 different girls into having sex in the bathroom at school. This bathroom is outside and used for sports events, just to let you know it is not a place normally used during school. This boy was never charged with any crimes. A month later this incident happens. Now, to further complicate things, let me also state the older sister of this girl also was involved in a statutory rape case 2 years prior. The girl does look older than 12. The consensus of the community is that most think it is the girls fault, or at least are blaming the parents. Tony, and the other boy are also on the football team and are quite popular. The football team was having a great season and the boys were thinking they were pretty invincible. Whether or not any of this plays into the events is speculation. But it just seems odd to me that this all happened with the football players. I also think there is blame for the parents for not teaching their daughter to respect herself. However, I also feel that these boys were old enough to know better and I have a hard time having the sympathy for them that most of the community seems to have for them. The moot point is she was 12, the law says that she is not able to make that decision. Tony on the other hand is considered an adult and had the obligation to control himself. And for those who gave him the benefit of the doubt…well Pioneer is an extremely small school, and everyone knows who everyone else is. There is no way he did not know how old she was. He purposely picked her up to have sex with her at 3 am in the morning. Yes, I believe she went with him willingly. I am sure she must have felt pretty special to be having the attention of a popular senior. She did not know the other boy was in the car until he came out from hiding in the back. The point though isn’t whether she was willing anyway, since the law says she is not capable of making that choice for herself. Luckily, there are laws to protect young girls since the community is vilifying her. I Personally think the blame needs to be put on the adults. Tony should have known better, and has no one to blame but himself. Her parents unfortunately won’t be charged with anything. Although they are also a big part of this problem.

    The kid, yeah, an 18 year old helmet head is a kid, needs a good scare and an ass beating. Really. This is not a pedo case. It is a case of a kid whose ego is way too big. He found what I am willing to bet is a hot little thing, never before (or rarely) touched who was all star struck and he took advantage. He took advantage, he did not molest.
    Kind of like the rock stars (garage bands) of the 80′s – 90′s that had 20-ish yr olds (sometimes even 30′s and beyond *shivers) guys hooking up with 16 – 18 year old fans. I know a lot of girls that had a morning walk of shame from some loser’s parent’s garage or basement.
    She is 12 and I wish that I could say that 12 year olds still play with Barbie dolls but unfortunately more are playing with their I-Phones and downloading Lady Gaga.
    This guy, no, these guys are skeez balls, douche bags and a bit pervy, but not life long child molesters.
    Granted, if never caught and never having to meet the girl’s older brother / uncle / dad they might (a little chance based on the elitist attitude) date rape as college football stars but a good ass whooping would probably cure that as well.
    Punish the hell out of them, scare the shit out of them, hell, I’d even back a caning followed by a year long series of forced community service in various victim’s meetings groups (let them serve coffee to rape victims groups, assault victim groups, molestation victim groups, show them the results of not having empathy and respect for others, but do not label them as predators for life. Stupid, yes, but predator, no.
    I do realize that NOTHING I have said has any basis in legal term, but I think (hope) that there is some common sense in there.

    How in the hell do you know if your peers were molested or not. Do you think molested kids just advertise what happens too them. That is the dumbest thing I ever heard. Plus your talking about your Jr. year I think that is a bit different from 12 years old. Also what the hell does private school have too do with it? You think only poor kids who go to public school get abused? You are an idiot.

    In Ontario, Canada, it is quite common to skip the junior high schooling. For me, elementary was K-8 then high school was 9-12. I don’t think it’s that weird or wrong at all. In fact, I think junior high is strange and unnecessary.

    Maybe the question should be at what point does a person become a molester? What is the difference between a child molester and a horny high school kid? I believe that an 18 yo that will engage in sex with a 12 yo is just as likely at 20, 30, or 40 years of age to do so also. If he’s immature or mentally deficient at 18, he probably will be throughout the rest of his adult life. I believe it will be good for society to have his ass tagged for life. I think his actions make him a predator. She was an easy target. Also, the fact that he brought along a friend without her knowing shows he wasn’t interested in forming an actual relationship with her. He was out to do one thing and one thing only. If she had of objected, I wouldn’t doubt for one moment that both would have held her and raped her.

    In my opinion, lack of common sense or thinking with the wrong head, would lead to having sex with your 16 yo gf when you are 18, but 12 is unconscionable. I am interested in hearing from other males if at that age they would have had sex with a 12 yo if the opportunity had presented itself and not gotten into trouble. Maybe I’m off base in my reaction. I know I was not interested in hanging around children at 18.

    I knew of a woman who had a relationship from 12-14 with a 40ish man. Is he a child molester? Or do we look at it differently because she was in “love” with him and thought of it as a “relationship?” They didn’t date. He would just sneak into her room at night via the window and she thought this was a relationship. She had multiple abortions and it stopped when her father finally caught him, but no charges were filed. Do you think he learned his lesson and met a woman his own age? I’m guessing, no.

    You say “they might date rape…” as if that is a rite of passage. I say put a big red X on his forehead as a warning to all. Maybe you have convinced me that he should not be labeled as a child molester, but should be charged as a serial rapist instead.

    I think the boys’ parents are at fault as well for not teaching them to respect human beings. There are plenty of young men who get through high school without banging every female that walks through the hallways.

    Personally, I’m quite upset that there are schools that have such a large range of age groups. This could have been avoided by simply not having young girls so accessible to older guys.

    That is just awful.

    Were there ever any consequences for any of the males involved? The first one you mention seems particularly desperate.

    I hear what you are saying. I was jumping ahead of the cart looking at the
    worse case scenario.

    Actually I watched number 3 beat the crap out of number 1′s sister. Anywho, no there were no consequences besides babies. I think number 1 lost custody of the kids she had a couple of years ago. Number 2 had 4 kids with the same guy, but they married. Then she divorced him a remarried and had more kids. Number 3 married her baby daddy and had lots of kids. As far as I know they are still together. I will say this about number 3, she was hot for 12. I know everyone is going be like “OMG”, but we were friends and so I can call that. If I looked at her pic today from sixth grade, I’d still say that…lol. She looked like a guns and roses groupie. She had cold black hair that was teased so damn high and holes all in her jeans. She really looked 18ish-no joke. Her dad wore black leather pants and sold skeleton rings at our local flea market. When I met him, I was so creeped out because she hung all over him. She looked like a video vixen at 12.

    Makes me wonder what kind of twelve year old girl we’re dealing with- sex in a bathroom at school?

    I knew a 12 year old that was actually a little slut that would sleep with anyone and everyone for any reason whats so ever so do I think this boy needs to be punished yeah but only because he should of knew better for one being in school and doing it then second for him being 18. I don’t think he should have to register as a sexual offender, that is a little harsh for a screw up cause god knows she was willing. So instead of throwing the freaking book at him punish him a little, but also punish her slutty little ass to.

    So if a 9 yo with a cell phone and a bratz doll asks for sex from a 20 yo it is ok because she was asking for it? Is that your logic?

    I can’t believe the attitudes i’m hearing. She’s TWELVE. It doesn’t matter what she looks or acts like. IF THEY WERE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF HER!? Of coarse he was because she’s a child and her mind isn’t developed enough to decide to do anything like that. I don’t care if she does this all the time, any person that does anything to her should pay. That being said six years is way excessive. I also think he should get another chance before they label him a sex offender.

    I just want to say (brag) that as a 12 year old, I date raped a big 10 football player who was 22 by telling him that if he didn’t have sex with me, I would tell the lie to the cops and say he molested me, regardless.   I think when the age ranges are this close we need to have some sort of mechanism in the courts to analyze the manipulative behavior of the alleged victims.  Because, in my case :D  I was the perp, and I didn’t give a fuck if he got in trouble, he was hot, and I wanted a piece.
