    They should just sentence him to life. I'm sure the other inmates will take care of him.

    I think the victims family should have a huge impact in the sentence of people like this. I think prison should be for the people that are a danger to society. Not people like martha Stewart, of Jack Kevorkian.

    If this was my daughter and I got to decide his punishment I would have him tied to a fire ant hill until he died. This is even way to good for him in my opinion.


    JBL, I think you need to go to the police with this. While there is not much that they can do because it will turn out to be his word against hers case, but with his prior history, it will establish a pattern with him. So that when this guy finally closes the line there will be more evidence that he has done this before and will do it again. If there is no established pattern then he'll probably serve less than a year when he is caught for something.

    There's not much you can do to protect his next victim, but if you establish a pattern he can get a stiffer penalty and it can protect the first victim after he is released from jail.


    It's really sad that we can't do something before these people strike. Just like with JBL's daughter, if somebody had made a big deal about this before his daughter stayed the night , I'm sure he wouldn't have let her go. It's so easy to see that this person is going to be just like the guy in fl. We should be able to at least force these guys into therapy.

    I dunno, Ozzy, this kid is what...16 years old? Not exactly an established master sexual predator. By all means notify the parents and scare the kid, get the word out, but he hasn't broken any laws here. There's a pretty long shot between saying or thinking these things and doing them. At least with things as serious as this.

    if anything, depending on which state you guys live in, the kid could be put in a counseling program + community service - thats if this was addressed to the cops and his family.

    Jeztor, I know what you're saying about not breaking the law, and that's why I have not called the police, but Ozzy raises a good point. People tend to ignore these things for too long and slaps on the wrist tend to give confidence to molestors to do more. As an FYI, at age 16 one has had plenty of time to become quite predatory. These things often begin with the predator being molested in their youth, becoming violent as this kid did before puberty, and sexually violent later. The victim becomes the victimizer. No excuse but it is not at all a long shot between thinking and saying these things and actually doing them. People like this will often test the waters with a new victim by saying provocative things to see how they will react. If they are quiet as my daughter was, they often become victims.

    Just to clarify things, my girl did not spend the night. This happened during the day in just four hours. I dread to think what might have happened to her if she slept over and he had access to her. In talking about this with other parents, we have heard more than one story of girls refusing to go back but not talking to their parents about what happened. I'm glad that my daughter had the guts to tell me about this and I will be far more careful about where I let her go.

    I'm sorry if I misinformed everyone about Couey, I THOUGHT he definetly got the death penalty, sorry bout that. Mark Lunsford (Jessica's dad) wants him to get the death penalty, maybe he will. I agree with JLAP though, kids are NOT attractive!

    JBL, I'm sorry, I was under the impression that she stayed over, I should have read your post more carefully. Even though this creep did not break any laws (YET!) I still think action should be taken, even if it's just to talk to his parents. I'm very glad that your daughter told you about it, you guys must have a great relationship
    Great Googly Moogly!

    I agree that the issue should be addressed, and I agree that now is an important time to bring this up, and I think that bringing this all to light is the best way to get the truth.

    Two years ago a young girl accused a neighborhood boy here of doing this same thing. The following weeks 4 more girls came forth claiming past incidents. Turns out it was all a lie and nothing ever happened. The little girls realized how much trouble the boy was going to get into and all decided to play along since they "didn't like him".

    Now, before you feel offended I'm not suggesting that your daughter is lying, but think of how many parents wrongfully went on crusades against the neighborhood boy because they were "absolutely sure" their child would never lie to them about such a thing.

    I think it's important to remember that these are proactive interventions. I just hate to see some 16 year old boy being labeled a potential child molester before the ball is even rolling here.

    Well so far Nikki and I agree that children are not sexy. And the rest of you... you have some explaining to do.....

    Lol, Sorry I should NOT joke about these things. If he has a record I think that's definately something. I can imagine that he may have just said that to scare her but wasn't serious (BUT! he has a record so that's out).

    Bottom line is who cares if he was serious or not? Doesn't matter, you do not joke around like that with little chulluns. Report him, if he's innocent then no problem and he's still 16 so his juvenile records are sealed and this should not affect him at all negatively when he goes out into the world once he's 18 and looking for a job or school. If he did do it then he'll do it again and one day he'll hurt someone.
