It was wrong for a man that age to sleep with a 15 year old but more then likely it was consensual between the both of them. Now a day girls are in a rush to grow up and will to anything to seek attention or be accepted. You can't just blame one person when it took two, she probably knew what she was doing and that it was wrong on both of their parts.

Reject Redwillowtree 8:39 pm on Friday, August 10, 2012 15 year old girls don't have the mental capacity to make that decision on their own. Being that age at one point I know how easy it is to be persuaded by an older man, a girl that age wants to feel in with the crowd, they want to show they can hang and keep up with girls older than them. An older guy knows that and knows they can use it to get what they want if they put the pressure on that girl Yes girls now a day are more mature in the way they dress and act but their minds are still that of a young person.

@Redwillowtree - AMEN! This has happened to me before at the age of 15, amongst many other girls I went to middle school with. No matter how "developed" or maturely dressed a young girl is, they still have the mentally of a child!! Such a shame. He is disgusting!

It's nonsense he is being charged. Absolutely absurd. He did not 'rape' anyone against their will. When I was 15 I dated a 22 year old. I didn't file charges on anything because it was my actions, my decisions and like they said, it takes two. They should have a law against minors for touching adults or luring adults. Fair game then.
