    Now I am going to say this man should not be charged, At all. was the girl under age, yes. But did the man actually know she was 12, or like so many young ladies did she lie about her age. She wasn't stalked, she wasn't forced into sex. It was a agreed get together online, And clearly this wasn't her first rodeo. Next she reported it the following day. I hope folks are actually thinking in this. If you wanna blame some one. i suggest, the girl for being a tramp, the girls parents for raising her to be a hotel hooker, And well, lets be honest, take a long look at todays society. Nope. No one is actually guilty here.

      You're so stupid. He's guilty of statutory rape. Doesn't matter if she told him how old she was. Did he ask? At 12, you have no idea what a tramp is, but way to go for the slut shaming right away, even though she's the victim. How old does she look? My guess is no over 18…so what's a 38 year old man doing with her in the first place!?

      Let's just hope nothing like this ever happens to YOUR daughter. Then I'd really like to see your reaction to parents raising their kids to be a "hotel hooker."

      Wow, you are a real piece of shit. Only another pedo POS like you would defend this scum. People like you should be put away with this scumbag. Who knows how many kids you've lured into a similar situation. I'm guessing more then a few.

      She's 12. Kids don't always make the wisest decisions. Any adult that would blame this girl must be a pedo. Don't like how they caught one of your kind huh?
