    CUT IT OFF!!! I bet he won't do it again then! If he's already raping people at age 18, he's got a great life of crime to look forward to. Maybe we should do the world a favor and lock him up until he's too old to get out of the house anymore without a walker, then let him out.

    I think it is a shame when a 15 or 16 year old girl is all over a boy 18 or 19 and they have sex. Then she cries rape.The age is irrelevant when it involves a 15 or older girl. She knows better.In my opinion when it is consentual it is not rape.If it is a case of willing to do it, it is stat-rape. There is a difference.I also said in my comment if you would re-read it...If it was rape prosecute his (edited) to the fullest. I think some people on here just like to argue.

    EVERYONE THAT HAS COMMENTED HAS SAID THAT THE VICTIM WAS A "GIRL". IT COULD HAVE BEEN A "BOY" VICTIM. BEING THE PERPETRATOR IS 18 AND THE VICTIM IS 15. NOW HE WOULD BE CONSIDERED AS A CHILD RAPIST. DONT WORRY ABOUT HIM " BUBBA " WILL TAKE GOOD CARE OF HIM.

    "Richard Noggin"...ah yes, Soccer Mom, that is really appropriate for comment on a case like this. I assume you are a woman.

    Soccer Mom, You are misunderstanding the intent of my message. If you read a lot of comments posted there is a trend to give these perpetrators another chance..because they are deprived or just don't understand wright and wrong. The Mackey case in Scott county is another case where the perpetrators is being cast as a "victim" of society as well.

    If the victim was 15, it doesn't matter if it was consensual or not, she is a MINOR! HELLO??

    Zatoichi, there's some more of that backwoods narrow-minded thinking again. This is not the place to bring up politics, there's another board for those comments. Stop presenting yourself as a "Richard Noggin" (Think about that name) This boy needs to pay for what he did to this girl, I'm assuming it's a girl. He needs to be punished. My prayers are with the victim and her family. Things like this can ruin a girls life, there should be no room for forgivness!!!
