    "Triplett was being held Monday evening at the Wake County Jail on a $10,000 bond."

    There should be NO bond or bail on crimes against children. PERIOD!!!

    God bless.

    Unfortunately, society once again has painted men as the people who are the reason for everything bad. But you never see women in the news who kill their significant other - and if they do - they brush it off.

    Political Correctness - only men can commit the crime, and if a woman does it - the man made her do it. Welcome to the age of societal moral hemmorage.

    You simply can not be PC and be of high moral character. They mix like water and gas.

    DeathRow-IFeelYourPain-NOT, it may not be just a gender thing. It seems that someone is holding not only gender, but race, to a different standard.

    Take, for instance, the Michael Vick story. He has a Commonwealth Attorney in Virginia almost apologizing for Vick being charged. And Vick gets a suspended sentence. And jail is described as hell. Wonder how those dogs felt?

    twc: "And if it was a woman holding a knife to a man's throat while he was robbed and sexually assaulted the sentence would be probation. As in the case of the UNC football players that wral is conveniently keeping hidden."

    Completely agree. That was totally wrong. This lady is probably related to the women in Chapel Hill. Why is it not possible to prosecute a woman for rape? In the Chapel Hill probation case, she should have at least been charged with sexual assault. She should have been in prison for at least 15 years. That's just wrong!

    10,000 bond. She'll do this again. Infact I've known a few men who've been taken advantage by older women. A crime that isn't always taken seriously because they victims are young boys and the perpertrators women.

    diver, you're exactly right. If it was a 43-year-old man molesting a 14-year-old girl (or boy) the bond would have been 10 times that probably.

    And if it was a woman holding a knife to a man's throat while he was robbed and sexually assaulted the sentence would be probation. As in the case of the UNC football players that wral is conveniently keeping hidden.
