Man, 20, accused of sex with 13-year-old

Posted August 7, 2010

— A 20-year-old Raleigh man faces charges in connection with accusations that he had a sexual relationship with a 13-year-old girl.

Lionel Quinto, of 4469 Cardinal Grove Blvd., has been charged with second-degree kidnapping and taking indecent liberties with a minor.

Raleigh police said that Quinto and the victim were in a relationship and that the allegations were reported by the girl's mother.

Quinto was placed in the Wake County jail under a $100,000 secured bond and scheduled to appear in court Monday. He was also ordered to have no contact with the victim.

In May, Quinto was convicted of assault on a female and sentenced to probation, according to state Department of Correction records.

    I will be watching this one extra close. My nephew was 18 and dating a girl who was 13. I do not think that a 12 year old should be dating and I beleive that the girls mother didn't realize they were as close as they were. End results she being in law inforcement reported this when she found out and my nephew in the end was sent to prison for 1 year. He met this girl while teaching her music lessons. Take a look at the young girls today and see that they look and act older than they are. I am by no means making excuses for my nephew and it was wrong of him to be with this girl but if he a US Citizen had to pay the piper this guy had BETTER!
