    This is ridiculous and I know he should be locked up asap! A five year old?! How could anyone in their right mind want to do such a thing. People out here must protect the kids and TAKE A STAND FOR WHAT'S RIGHT. People like this are walking the street, our neighbors and associates. STAY ATTENTIVE AND PROTECT OUR KIDS!!

  • cocker_mom Jan 25, 2:52 p.m.

    If he's soliciting a mother to do this - I would be willing to bet he's already done something like it for REAL.

    He needs to be locked up forever, and she needs to be the same.

    I know that won't happen - but he should be on sec offender list for even asking about this and she should be not allowed to have children. Period. I am not a big fan of government doing things like this to people (think WWII Germany) - but - forced sterilization of women like this is ensuring no child will be born into such danger.

    Oh and she should be on sex offender list too - just to make sure she's never allowed to work in a field with access to kids.

    It boggles my mind after reading the 5-year-old girl’s mom received text message from this “man” (35-year-old Brett Howard Hilton) who asked to have sex with her child – instead of she contacted the LEA and reported this “man’s criminal intention”, she dodged her most important responsibility as a mom which is to protect her own child at any cost from the pedophile, she let “Wake County Human Services” do the right deed which is to file a complaint to the LEA. And on top of that, if “A search warrant in the case also suggests that the child's mother entertained Hilton's requests” turns out to be true, then she needs to be locked up behind bars as he!

  • PracticalMagick Jan 25, 2:23 p.m.

    Seriously? Ok. The dumbed down version of what I REALLY want to say about this is as follows. A grown man wanting to have sex with a 5 year old is sick. A mother that would even ENTERTAIN such a thing is more sick, although not by much. How does a mom NOT cause bodily injury to someone that would suggest such chit?

  • Momma2three Jan 25, 12:42 p.m.

    WHAT?!?! Evidence suggests that the mother entertain's his requests!!! What in the world is going on here? She should defenitely be arrested under suspicion of solicitaion!!! SMH!

  • dwr1964 Jan 25, 11:18 a.m.

    Please tell me what it is about this comment that violates your GOLO policy. Please refer to the story about the rape of a woman in Delhi. We have no need for prisons in this country. Why can't we do things the old fashioned way. It will only result in less crime.

  • 68_dodge_polara Jan 25, 10:59 a.m.

    I'm going to just stop reading the news.

  • sunshineonmyshoulder Jan 25, 10:55 a.m.

    Agree that the mother should be locked up in a cell right next to him if she "entertained" the idea of allowing it. And whoever came forward with this information deserves a big "thank you" from all of us. I for one am glad to be reading about it now and not after the fact.

  • jetset Jan 25, 10:44 a.m.

    In my opinion, the mother is just as guilty, if not more so. Sick and evil to even have that run through someone's head. She should never be able to get that child back. If she entertained the idea now, she would probably put the child in harms way again. No parenting classes or probation will ever correct this sick mindset.

  • sssh.. whisper Jan 25, 10:28 a.m.

    This is beyond sick.... What is wrong with people?? I def agree, arrest the mother too.. I mean if she really thought about it...

  • tracie21142 Jan 25, 10:27 a.m.

    They both need to spend life in jail!! I agree.. WHAT IN THE WORLD????

  • Sweet summertime Jan 25, 10:20 a.m.

    WOW....put him away forever so he can learn his lesson in prison.

  • kimisufu Jan 25, 10:19 a.m.

    Buford thought the guy asked the WOMAN to have sex with the girl, not for the guy to do it. (if I'm understanding correctly)

  • Twittyfan Jan 25, 10:18 a.m.

    sick sick sick..Lock him up because he is a sick man...

  • connieleigh4 Jan 25, 10:18 a.m.

    They both need to be in jail!!! There are some sick individuals in this world!!!

  • buford Jan 25, 10:18 a.m.

    no..I get it...but what I was saying, it sounded like he wanted the mother to have sex with the five year old...he asked the mother "to" have sex with the five year old...should have said he asked the mother if "he" could have sex with the five year old...it's just worded wrong.

  • djofraleigh Jan 25, 10:07 a.m.

    Thanks to whomever brought this to the law's attention. 1. What possesses a man to want sex with a 5 year old? 2. What would make a mother consider allowing it? 3. How much of this behavior out there considering the case now being tried where the little girl was killed after such an arrangement? Can we stop such evil?

  • kermit60 Jan 25, 10:05 a.m.

    If the mother entertained the idea, why is she not in jail also?

  • carolinarox Jan 25, 9:56 a.m.

    Actually sportslover 75, the headline does not make it clear if he wanted to have sex with the child, or if he wanted the mother to have sex with the child.

  • carolinarox Jan 25, 9:55 a.m.

    I'm with you Buford, I couldn't figure out if he asked the mother if he could have sex with the child or if he asked the mother to have sex with the child. Very poorly written.

  • Scubagirl Jan 25, 9:54 a.m.

    THEY ARE BOTH BEYOND SICK!! Hoping they find a safe, loving home for the child. I just don't understand folks these days. What are they missing in their brains and hearts to do sick stuff like this?

    I thought the same thing buford. SportsLover75 he did NOT ask the mother to have sex, he asked it HE could have sex with her child. Agree-both are beyond disgusting.

  • Gunny the Racist Jan 25, 9:45 a.m.

    This is a WHAT IN THE WORLD story!!!

  • Bec0522 Jan 25, 9:43 a.m.

    GROSS

  • Fireflies Rock Jan 25, 9:40 a.m.

    Reminiscent of poor Shaniya Davis....thank heavens someone stepped up and reported this. If it's true and the mother "entertained" the thought, she should be tossed in jail along with this other poor excuse for a human being. I agree, the title is confusing; it sounded like this guy was offering a child for the woman to have sex with.

  • dmj Jan 25, 9:38 a.m.

    He needs to be put in jail forever.

  • Canes Girl Forever Jan 25, 9:34 a.m.

    @buford....that is what he did.

  • savannahn8v Jan 25, 9:20 a.m.

    Pathetic!

  • SportsLover75 Jan 25, 9:19 a.m.

    buford-- that is what happened. He text the mother asking if he could have sex with her 5 year old!

  • lisa4 Jan 25, 9:13 a.m.

    Agree....arrest the mother too and keep that precious child away from her!!!!!!!!!

  • bubbba Jan 25, 9:00 a.m.

    Whats going on in this world. Is it me or do things seem to be getting worse?

  • buford Jan 25, 8:50 a.m.

    Confusing headline...when I first read it I thought he asked the woman to have sex with a five year old...either way disgusting and sick...

  • lwe1967 Jan 25, 8:49 a.m.

    He is sick, sick, sick! He needs to be locked up and kept there! The mother is no better, if she was entertaining his suggestions!

  • tcndc2 Jan 25, 8:47 a.m.

    saddest part is what his sentence will be- continue to watch this guy!!!!!mark this name down! he probably won't even have to register as a sex offender.

  • SportsLover75 Jan 25, 8:45 a.m.

    I am with you guys... why has the mother not been arrested? I wouldn't have even responded to him. I would have drove straight to the police station and showed them the text! Sad world we are living in. They BOTH need to be locked up!

  • whatsupwiththat Jan 25, 8:42 a.m.

    RIP Shaniya Davis - that case still hurts me so deeply. These men are beyond SICK. Thank goodness action was taken before this child was hurt.

  • jlh4jdj Jan 25, 8:38 a.m.

    I think what's more distrubing is that the Mother was entertaining the idea, so sick.

    Could not agree more. The headline should be that instead.

  • Rebelyell55 Jan 25, 8:12 a.m.

    I think what's more distrubing is that the Mother was entertaining the idea, so sick.

  • chmcphee71 Jan 25, 8:11 a.m.

    If the mother "entertained" the idea then why has she not been arrested?? It sounds as though she did not even turn him in and she does not have custody of her own daughter currently.

  • smithslva Jan 24, 8:12 p.m.

    Thank goodness this was stopped before it became another Shaniya Davis story.

  • carrboroyouth Jan 24, 8:05 p.m.

    I am so glad that someone found out about this before harm came to the child. Kudos to the police and whomever tipped them off about this.

  • EnoughWhiningAlready Jan 24, 7:54 p.m.

    That is the most disgusting thing ever. I hope he rots in jail.

  • anews77 Jan 24, 7:47 p.m.

    he should be shot...and if the mother agreed to it, she should be also.........sick sick sick....
