Truth-or-Dare Game Leads to Sex Charges

Posted January 12, 2007

— A Fayetteville man was arrested Friday and charged with sex crimes against children involving a game of truth or dare, authorities said.

Barry Wayne Blevins, 40, of 4117 Fulton St., is charged with four felony counts of taking indecent liberties with a child, six felony counts of first-degree sexual exploitation of a minor, two felony counts of aiding and abetting crimes against nature, six felony counts of disseminating obscene materials to a minor and six felony counts of using a minor to assist in obscenity.

Authorities said a man engaged in a game of truth or dare with a group of children, encouraging them to participate in sexual acts with one another. The man drove the children, who range in age from 11 to 15, around their neighborhood and coerced them to play the game, authorities said.

Blevins is being held in the Cumberland County Detention Center on a $150,000 secured bond. His first court appearance is scheduled for Tuesday.

    The death penalty may not deter others from committing the same crimes, but it sure does stop that person from doing it again!

    Lets just kill everyone who commits a crime. Should take care of most issues. Why were these kids in the company of this guy in the first place? Hmm? Maybe the parents should be investigated for negligence.

    look at that pretty boy mouth.. he should do well in prison.

    I agree with we need stiffer penalties. However, drunk drivers do just as much destruction (or more) than sex offenders. I say execute all convicted drunk drivers as well. If you think this guy should be executed but don't feel the same way about drunk drivers - then you have my permission to call yourself a hypocrite.

    They are already selling him in central prison. I hear that the bidding is up to 2 packs of Marlboros already. They think it might go as high as 3 and a half pack. Leroy is bidding 3 blunts
