    Disgusting indeed! I pray the courts gives this man 60 years in prison. I do hope the young girl with good counseling will be alright in time. Pray for her.

    CG - "statutory" means it was rape because of her age. You're thinking of forcible rape. Agree with you about girls today. And here's a newsflash: girls like sex too. As long as they're not squirting out babies, I don't care what they do.

    A City Girl - SURPRISE!! It doesn't matter one iota what YOU think the law ought to be. It matters only what the law IS. And current NC law says that a girl of 15 is UNABLE TO GIVE CONSENT. Therefore, ANY sexual intercourse with her is, by statutory definition, rape. That is why the crime is called 'STATUTORY' rape. Because it is a definitional crime that does not involve intent on the part of the perpetrator. If you don't like the law as it is, work to get it changed, cut in the meantime, don't criticize the press for reporting it accurately.

    Was this consensual with the girl and called rape because of her age or was it an actual rape where he forced himself on her? We are so quick to cry rape and throw a guy under the jail but so many teenage girls these days look grown and lie about their age and slept with more guys than you can count on both hands and feet way before they are 18. I wouldn't call that rape anymore. I am not defending him, I am just asking the question. If a news story is going to be reported all of it should be reported. What was the circumstances around this incident and who reported it? I honestly don't care when a girl is sleeping around with every tom dick and harry and gets caught doing it with someone older. I do care when an old dude forces himself on a girl...whole different story.

    Yet another victim...When are we in North Carolina going to make the penalty so severe that it is deemed not worth it to take advantage of other people?
