    "Multi-culturalists would maintain that it is ok for Mexicans to bring their "culture" here. There the age of conset is 12. "

    When in Rome... Regardless of what is acceptable in Mexico, the fact is he is in the United States and must be held accountable to our laws. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

    How exactly does someone "sound Mexican"?

    A creep is a creep no matter what nationality.

    It doesn't matter what his country of origin he is. He is and was an adult at the time and therefore is responsible for his actions regardless if it was consensual or not. I was dating a young lady and when I turned 18 I put the extra curricular activities on hold for that very purpose. The adult has to take the proper steps and obey the Laws of the United States.

    I would argue, however, if you want to have sex with 12 year olds, stay in Mexico. That is not acceptable here.

    I know of a local man that has been charged with 6 counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor over a 3 year period of time. He was sentenced to 6 months of EHA and given 3 years of probation. NC needs to stiffen the penalties for these creeps. No wonder the recidivism rate is so high.

    then who cares - Thanks for correcting my misunderstanding. You are correct, I did not read that accurately.

    That being said, I still very strongly that ADULTS (anyone 18 or over) have a responsibility toward CHILDREN (under 18) to NOT have sex with them. Even in "consensual" circumstances. No matter how mature a child of 15 tries to act, or even may look, they still are children! They should be treated, respected and protected as such!

    This idiot should be put away for life.

    Was this guy an illegal alien? If so, why wasn't it reported? If he is then he should be locked up for 100 years, and then his bones returned to the country of origin after the fact.

    If I read this story correctly in 2004 he would have been 22, she would have been 15. So I assume that makes her 18 now. Wonder if this is another consensual sex, get even with a boyfriend deal? Although by law 22 doesn't divide into 15 anyway!
