— Cumberland County sheriff’s detectives arrested a 39-year-old Fayetteville man accused of having an inappropriate relationship with an 11-year-old girl.

Dale Allen Winter Jr., of 5101 Surf Scooter Drive, was being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center Wednesday under a $96,000 bond.

The girl told authorities that Winter had sexual relations with her in her home from Oct. 31 through Dec. 1, according to the sheriff's department.

Winter faces three counts of taking indecent liberties with a child, two counts of first-degree statutory sex offense and two counts of disseminating obscene material to a minor.

His first court appearance was scheduled for 2:30 p.m. Thursday in the detention center courtroom. No other information was released.

    "This girl is 11 years old and knew right from wrong"-wildcat

    "the very "first" time he approached her, she should have told her parents or call the police. There is no excuse for for not telling"-wildcat

    "I can just bet you that she was not that afraid. Look how long it took her just to tell. She was not afraid then. I guess she was afraid of the consequences her parents would lay on her."- wildcat

    "Stop making excuse for this young lady of 11 years old. She knew better and knew right from wrong."- wildcat

    Sure looks like blame being put on this child to me???

    wildcat your commments could never be better than mine. You don't even know proper grammar. But you have blamed this child over and over again. Re-read your own comments. It's all there.

    After seeing so many stories like this, are YOU going to talk with your own children tonight and make it safer for them? Will you just let it go because it was someone else's child and nothing for you to be really concerned about. Better wake up and start being more alert. This kind of crime continues to happen all the time...right in your own home. Talk to your children and make sure they will tell even the police to put a stop to whatever. Be the parents for once and not their friend. THEY NEED YOU FOR THEIR PROTECTION? WILL YOU BE THERE AT ALL TIMES?

    AMBY AMBY....I AM CERTAINLY AND ABSOLUTELY NOT BLAIMING THIS YOUNG GIRL OF 11 YEAR FOR ANYTHING THING. IT HURTS YOU WHEN MAYBE MY COMMENTS WAS MUCH BETTER THAN YOUR. THE GIRL SHOULD GET SOME SERIOUS COUNSELING TO HELP HER HEAL. "BUT SHE IS NOT TO BE BLAIMED IN THIS CRIME." I STILL MAINTAIN THAT SHE SHOULD HAVE TOLD THE MOMENT SHE WAS AWAY FROM THIS GUY. GET IT NOW?

  • wildcat Jan 26, 2012

    I ALSO SAID THIS MAN SHOULD GET 60 YEARS IN PRISON FOR HIS CRIME. I DO HOPE THE COURTS WILL DO JUST THAT.

    "The girl told authorities that Winter had sexual relations with her in her home from Oct. 31 through Dec. 1, according to the sheriff's department."

    According to this article, this happened over a 30 day period of time. So it's not such a LONG time and she finally got the courage to let an adult know what was going on.

    "Stop making excuse for this young lady of 11 years old." wildcat

    No excuses here! What's yours?? How about you stop with your sick comments about an 11 year old child that was raped, blaming her instead of this 39 year old man.

    I kinda think you just play devils advocate sometimes just to see what people will reply. Surely you are not that ignorant.

    When you throw the bait out, why do the certain people take a bite. Not ignorant at all not unless you are speaking of yourself. Then I do understand.
