    She said the suspect took her to the Sleep Inn - WAS SHE SO NIEVE THAT SHE DID NOT KNOW WHAT HE WAS UP TO WHEN HE HEADED TO THE SLEEP IN. Parents teach your children to be smarter than this if you don't want them to be taken advantage of by an older person that has no good intentions with them

    A grown man took advantage of this young 14 year old. I pray that he gets some good prison time of 40 years or more. Meanwhile, why was this child in the presence of this man? Did her parents know her whereabouts and around this man? Parents set rules and regulations for your child and know where they are at all times. School is out, where are they staying while you are working. Make it safe for your OWN CHILD.
