— A 20-year-old Cumberland County man will make a first court appearance Wednesday on charges that he sexually assaulted a 14-year-old girl. 

Shawn Rosario, of 4517 Black Stallion Court in Parkton, is charged with three counts of statutory rape of a minor, three counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor and second-degree kidnapping. 

According to investigators, Rosario had sexual relations with the girl in August. The victim told detectives the assaults happened in Rosario's car when it was parked between two vacant homes in her neighborhood. 

Rosario was released from the Cumberland County jail on a $60,000 bond. He was scheduled to appear in court Wednesday afternoon.

    Sorry but if one of my sons had been dating an under age child and having sex with her I sure would not be posting his bond. I told them all you do not have sex with any woman unless you want your child caller her mama.

    My point is that these young "ladies" and "gentlemen" are only doing what teenagers have been doing forever. Is it wrong, YES! Is it something that they should be carrying around for the rest of their lives for while the girls get off scott free, NO! The victims are both kids, not just the girl.

    Not according to the law - only the girl is underage. Just goes to show it would be a REALLY good idea to learn a whole lot more about a person before choosing to have sex with them. Plenty of women available past the age of consent . . .there's just no excuse.

    It is my opinion that people have the responsibility to be honest about their age AND to know the age of any sex partner(s). They also need to know what the laws are about age differences between sex partners.

    Girlwonders, unless they were shown fake ID that identifies young women as being above the age of consent, these young men are not the victims here.

    I fail to understand why these young men who are having sex with teenage girls aren't understanding that the girl can at any time afterwards use it to ruin their lives. The girls might be only 13 or 14, but they are not being forced and they go on with their lives, these boys do not.
