I had my first girl friend at the age of 4, so my parents say. It's in my Mexican nature right ? It was a blonde haired, blue eyed anglo girl.. Even then I knew how to pick em'.

I never said all 14 year olds, did I? I know that it's hard for you to imagine how things is not always like it seams. If a 18 year old boy have sex with a 15 year old girl her parents can charge him with statutory rape and his life as registered sex offender starts. I know that in this case he is 22 and yes he should have known better but I don't believe he is an pedophile. Pedophiles get turned on by children. A 14 year old girl does not always mean a small innocent child. Many 14 year olds can easily pass as 17 - 18 year olds in both behavior and looks.
Besides, I don't think you can teach you child not to have sex or even date before the age of 18. The reason why some girls date at 14 is because they attract boys, plain and simple. I didn't have anything to show off at 14 so I was single until I was 16 but I had classmates that were very aware and knew exactly what they were doing, boys and girls.
Again, before somebody think I defend pedophiles, I don't think a 22 year old should date a 14 year old but it doesn't have to mean he is a pedophile, just stupid.

I agree...I wasn't allowed to date till I was 16, even then the rules and my curfew were really strict. Boys couldn't even call the house till I was 16. I plan on being just as strict with my daughter, who will be 14 next week.

But this man was not a boy. He was an adult. A little girl cannot do great damage to an adult pedophile's life.

We also have no need in bringing in stupid immigrants. There are far better people who would like to come to this country, they haven't raped children, they aren't stupid either.

With the huge number of people who would like to come to this country, we aren't needing to scrape the bottom of the barrel.

Oh for goodness sake! A 22 year old having sex with a 14 year old is a flaming pedophile. What would a 22 year old talk to a 14 about? What could they have in common besides the 14 year olds naivete and body?
Deport his sleazy azz. End of story.

Not many normal men the age of a college senior want to "date" 8th or 9th graders, that's for sure. Except this guy didn't merely "date" the young girl, he was raping her. Talking with a 14 year old was likely the very last thing he really cared about.
