Man Charged With Getting 12-Year-Old Pregnant

Posted March 3, 2008

— A Harnett County man was charged Monday with impregnating a 12-year old girl, authorities said.

Jonathan Alexander Wiley, 26, of 2882 River Wind Drive, was charged with three counts of first-degree statutory rape and one count of raping a person under the age of 13 years old. He was being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center under a $100,000 bond.

Investigators said Wiley began a relationship with the alleged victim at her home about a year ago.

    Agreed! Not only should he be sent to jail and be tagged as a predator but the parents/parent/guardian should be charged at a minimum with neglect! As parents we should know where our children are, what they are doing and who they are with!

    Another pervert. I am glad he is going to get what he deserves. Question, how does one carry on a "relationship" with a 12 year old girl and her parent(s) knew nothing about it. Her parents should be question as to how that happened and appropriate charges should be filed against them also if they neglected this child. How sickening.

    Why was this child hanging with a grown man?? How awful...I just cant believe someone would be SO SICK as to have a sexual relationship with a child. He needs to be locked up for the rest of his life.

    Good thing I'm not the judge - I'd say death, and I'd even flip the switch.

    Parents should have picked up on this and noticed that something was wrong here.

    As has been asked earlier, "Where is the girl's mother?" I am guessing the girl's father is a no-show. In this case, rape should be a capital offense.

    What a pig. What scum. Pathetic. Sick. Throw away the key.

    Memonster, yes, I agree that evil, stupidity, abuse, and poor judgment are not gender specific, but I agree with Justjean, that there are more men participating in this particular variety of behavior. But I don't think _all_ men need to be taken to task for it, any more than _all_ women need to be fussed out because of the existence of women who get involved with men solely for their money.

    We need to change our culture's ideas about masculinity and sexuality. When manhood is no longer measured by the appearance, number, or age of a man's partners or by the car he drives, his money or the power he wields over others, then there will be less that the men who are insecure will need to prove. When male sexuality is no longer so frequently defined as predatory in nature, when men and women can comfortably view sex as something other than one person somehow conquering someone else, maybe we can help to put an end to many kinds of abuse.

    justjean, I think 99% is closer, go read some victim and offender data at fbi.gov, that should give you a better understanding of the underlying problem.
