Frank Ricardo Piras, of 400 Lynchester Court, faces two counts of indecent liberties with a child and one count of first-degree degree sexual offenses.

The warrants state that the alleged abuse occurred in April and August.

Piras was placed in the Wake County jail under a $1 million bond.

    First, He was ACCUSED...how would any of you feel if you were accused of something you never did?! I know someone who knows him and he is a really nice and cool person. This has to be from pure jealousy and hatred. Whoever lied and ruined his life must not believe in Karma! Put yourself in his shoes, this could happen to any of you.

    I know how 14 year old girls where 30 years ago. I couldn't imagine how they are now. I have an 8 year old. God(if there is one), help me.

    I recently heard of a situation of a 21+ male and 14 female. Mom is ok with it. Dad isn't. Nothing is being done.

    This male is just as guilty as any other child molester.

    @bryanpam - "oftentimes, it's the little girl who made the offer he couldn't refuse."

    The boy STILL deserves to be charged for the simple fact that young girls are still just that...young girls! If it is a young girl making that offer, he should be smart enough and mentally coherent enough to realize that if he takes her up on that offer he is first of all, sick, and second of all, a rapist. Most young girls that make "offers" as you are implying, have been abused or hurt in some other way and do not truly understand what they are doing. I know this from experience and tons of research. Really, if it was your daughter that he was molesting, would you honestly be saying that? I think not.
