    hmmmmmm......contributing to a minor.....did he get her drunk or high first too?
    Poor child, and that's all she is, has just been made to grow up within a couple of minutes. Sad :(

    Glad they got his butt of the streets. I do not know who got a hold of him, but they did a good job of getting to that face that he can not hide. Hope justice is served soon!!

    To look of this you would think that he has been punished enough already. The childs father must have been the arresting officer..

    I wonder if it was the girl, her family, or the cops that roughed that dude up?

    There's 3000 Hernandez's listed by the NC correctional system. You try to find him.

    Wonder why Hispanic isn't a choice like White/black/asian/indian/other is ?

    Don't say "hispanic" or WRAL will censor your comments. We don't have any problems from hispanics, they're all fine & upstanding citizens. They're all here legally & are contributing to the economy & tax base. To say anything otherwise will get you censored by WRAL. I'm still curious though about those guys who work in the WRAL gardens. Legal? Hmmm.
