    Remember when you were 13 & your first love. Well the problem with this story is that her parents allowed a 13 to date a 17. I guess they must of decided that they could not live without each other & ran away. So he his now a sexual offender for life. By the looks of it he has been in jail since 17 and not too long release and now going back. How is he to grow up if all he knows if jail. His problem 1st started with parents that did not put their foot down and not allow a relationship. Statuitory rape servers longer than a bank robber, manslaughter & some murders. This is so stupid. There was nothing wrong with him on facebook.

    There's no doubt we have lawmakers with brains; but do we have any with the courage to know when laws aren't fair? twc

    ONLY when it gets in the way of putting more $ in their pockets, then they will howl and scream that the law is totally unfair and MUST be changed.

    There is something wrong with a law that says once you commit a crime you will commit another one! There should be no such thing as a crime that will live in perpetuity!

    There's no doubt we have lawmakers with brains; but do we have any with the courage to know when laws aren't fair?

    If all of those who were perfect when they were 17 started casting your stones none of us would be safe; especially if they cast them the rest of their lives!

    Why should we care? Because we finance the eternal persecution!

    People change! People change absolutely after their teen years!

    The actual question should be "what was the threat" by his being on the internet?

    "And for the 100 trillion'th time....5 year age difference required for sex offense in NC, and age of consent is 16 so at the very least you have some 20 year old with a 15 year old which is pretty gross..."

    Actually the statute reads, "more than four years...." which could be four years and one day. So anything more than a four year difference when the victim is 13, 14 or 15.

    like father like son....daddy messed with his step-daughter and son messed with his step-sister. Nice way of keeping it in the family. Geesh.

    daddyman: You report it to the internet police. Duh. Joke, you report it to the sheriff's office in the county the person lives in.

    Again, I think some of the "rules" they come up with aid in perpetuating criminal activity so that the state/county can reap the monetary benefits.
