    This happens a lot. An underage teen consents to sex and then screams he forced me when her parents find out.

    "Estelle was in the Wake County jail Wednesday under a $1 million bond."

    A bond that makes sense.

    Praying for his victim.

    God bless.

    How do you guys know the girl was 15?

    The ages have nothing to do with this incident. It says by force and against their will. There has to be more than 2 years between the ages for indecent liberties with a child and it does not say Stautory sex offense.

    He isn't in trouble for hooking up with a 15 year old, he is in trouble for forcing the 15 year old.

    OK so he's 17 and he hooked up with a 15 year old.... Now he is charged. But if he was 18 and she was 16 it's not a problem.
