    What a pig.. you’re 35 years old! Leave children alone, ugh.. these are the kid of stories that boil my blood.

    • The way this story reads it doesn’t sound as if he raped her. It makes it sound more consensual than anything else. With that said a 35 year old man should know better than to sleep with a 14 year old girl in the year 2012 as it is against the law.

      Edit: I cannot reply directly to Betty as her comment is waiting approval so I will do it here. I am not blaming the 14 year old girl, at all but a 14 year old can consent to a sexual act. It doesn’t make it legal but they can consent. No where in the article does it state he raped her. If the article changes I will gladly edit my post.

        The article doesn’t mention it, but Sexual Abuse of a Minor is typically a Class D misdemeanor in the State of Maine. However, because he’s so much older (more than 10 years), it becomes a Class C felony:

        It is true that under Maine law, a 14-year-old can legally consent to having sex with someone as long as the older person isn’t more than 5 years older. So at the most extreme, a 14yo could legally have sex with a 19yo and a 15yo could have sex with a 20yo. 16 is the absolute age of consent – a 16yo can have sex with anyone of any age under Maine law.

    Guess this is a reason to ban heterosexual marriage, right? Isn’t that what those opposing gay marriage tried to argue?

      I’m pretty sure theres a difference between gay marriage and molesting young kids. Gay marriage shouldn’t be the focus of this.

    I looked up this guy on Facebook and on August 19th he posted a picture of the back window of a pickup truck with a decal on it that says “Save a deer, hunt a pedophile.” SO bummed that I cant leave a comment, I’d have a select few words for him.
