— A 59-year-old Raleigh man was charged Wednesday with sexual offenses involving two children.

Peter Lewis McGettigan, of 8005 Knebworth Court., is charged with one count of taking indecent liberties with a child and one count of statutory sex offense with a child under 15 years of age.

Authorities said the alleged offenses occurred between January 2015 and December 2015 and involved a 10-year-old girl and 7-year-old girl that McGettigan knew.

McGettigan was being held in the Wake County jail Thursday under a $900,000 secured bond.

    I totally agree with Candace's comment. You don't know me, nor my stance on God, nor my stance on anything else. To assume so many things based on one's political stance is downright ignorant.

    I'm glad you think you know my stance on God. I'm a liberal, I'm also a Christian. I don't support militant Islam but understand that not all Muslims militant, as do most other sane human beings. To assume that you know someone's heart based solely on their political leanings is ignorant.

    Are you for real? The reply was in reference to a flippant comment about HB2, which is all about militant Trans advocates. Liberals hate God by the transitive property, which is why they support militant Islam. At least own up to your own ignorance.

    Militant Trans advocates? Are you for real?? I am a huge supporter of Transgender people, and I certainly believe in rape. However, this article has nothing to do with Transgender people, and your comment only shows your complete and utter ignorance.

    Rape happens all the time -- but militant Trans advocates will tell you rape is made up. Being a man you won't understand.

    Nah, this didn't actually happen.

    HB2 stopped all of this!
