    This will be with this young man for the rest of his life. He knew right from wrong but did it any way. Glad he was caught. Parents do you allow your underage teenagers to have company over when you are not there? Do you even care? They are not adults and do not think like adults. Resort to babysitters for your young underage teenager to go to their home instead of their own. This child did not realize the danger she was putting herself in. Parents please talk to your children about these child predators. Its your job to do so.
