I am so glad that this sting operation in Florida caught this couple. I feel so SORRY for their fourteen-year-old son. I hope he has decent family to live with.

People like this are the lowest form of life...a quarter-step below animal abusers! Good riddance tgo bad rubbish and if they are eligible for parole I hope it is denied every single time. I worry ahout their child - have they abused him??? I HOPE NOT!

Please, please, let's institute a procedure that will tatoo every abuser/predator's forehead and let's also have them microchipped so that we all know WHO they are and WHERE they are!

What scum!! I hope all predators like these get what they deserve. No matter what they said, the fact that he emphasized leaving without a trace, leads me to believe she would have ended up dead at one point or another, just my opinion.
I am so glad for these sting operations. They have arrested so many predators because of them. WTG Florida!!!
Noted, thanks Cate

Wooohooo Wooohooo.doin' the happy dance anytime scumbags like this go to prison! Hey Blue, I suggested the same thing on a story about those microchips. Why not use them as a condition of parole. The police and the parole dept can't seem to keep track of these bastards. That's why they KILL our children, because we let them out of prison and then allow them to slip away.
If they aren't gonna bag 'em, TAG 'EM! They have no civil rights as far as I am concerned. They gave up that right when they made the choice to abuse a child.

Cate, I don't think the ACLU would do that; parolees have to wear ankle bracelets; those under house arrest have to wear ankle bracelets; that's not "everyone or no one" ... a GPS microchip would tell us all WHERE the abusers/predators are and they could easily bee "tracked"!
 

Blue Bunting (855)
Thursday September 6, 2007, 11:04 am
Bravo, Lauren ... "like minds ..." and all that ... why should people like Martha Stewart have to wear an ankle bracelet so that police can keep track of her, when these abusers/predators are allowed to move in to our communities and many of them don't notify the local police either ... it's time they're tatooed and microchipped so that they're easily identified and tracked.

Noted! I hope there is someone in the family with some sense that can give their son the love and help he needs to overcome the parents he had. There are so many people out there that are childless and they ache for a child to call their own. These people were given a gift from God and they were too damn stupid to know that. I hope they get locked up forever.

I can't even tell you how many times children in this country are MURDERED by REPEAT sex offenders. It makes me want to vomit every time it happens AGAIN. Our judiciary refuses to pass tough laws that would keep these predators in prison. They go in, they come out, they re-offend, they go in, they come out , they kill. It happens over and OVER but the law makers will not set mandatory life for these sub human pieces of fecal matter.
We all need to push for 'Jordan's Law'. One strike. That's it. Damage a child, you get to spend the rest of your days with a BIG hairy room mate called Bubba!
So at the very least, they could keep track of them and possibly prevent further offenses or deaths.

YE HAA,WOO HOO, and I agree with Lauren any and all parolees should get "chipped" ,,only problem they would probably just cut them out, unless they were inserted where nobody could get them, like inside the skull !!!
 

Blue Bunting (855)
Thursday September 6, 2007, 11:15 am
Amen, Lauren ... I agree, totally! No second chances for abusers/predators!

And they must be tatooed and icrochipped!
 

Lauren Stone (586)
Thursday September 6, 2007, 11:17 am
Well, I don't think ALL parolees should be 'tagged', but certainly DANGEROUS people, sex offenders, child/spouce abusers, etc...they almost always re-offend and the authorities need to know where they are.

This is so sick; it's the ultimate of wrong; I hope that this couple go away for a very long time, yet time doesn't seem to be enough for them. Hopefully their son isn't bent so out of shape that he doesn't trust the system enough to go to counselling which he will be needing for many years if not his entire life.

Hey, I have3 nothing against GPS-ing scum who hurt animals OR people if the government doesn't extend that chipping to everyone. Not even every convicted felon needs to be chipped - just the violent ones and those who abuse children and animals. As far as one strike you're out, I can tell you that mny states won't adopt it because the prosecutors think it will be too difficult to obtain convictions. They figure 15 years is better than an acquittal because of the statute. I SUPPORT THE ONE STRIKE YOU"RE OUT PENALTY FOR ALL: CHILD ABUSERS - but again..where do you draw the line? An 18 year-old kid havbing sex with his 15 1/2 year-old girlfirend? I can't go for that...

PPL like these( or so called PPL ) should be locked away where they never get at a child again. If you have ever been abused NO not 1 strike because it affects you for the rest of your life. God forgive me but PPL like that are low life.

Well, he was very oversexed so I will make sure to let Big Bubba know that he has an insatiable sex drive, and it will surely take more than one partner to satisfy him. As for the wife, I'm sure she will get her share from admirers, maybe Bubba's sister Bubbella will take a liking to her.......geezzzzz, I hate predators. As quick as I would act to save a child or an animal, I would act just as quick to remove a predator from planet Earth if possible!!!

Blue and I shared this email...

Well, the disease part would upset me too, but I am sure you would have taught her about safe sex...I do NOT want to see young men branded as sex offenders for consensual teenage romances.

Original Message:

-----------------

Cate,

I have a problem with your analogy: an 18 yr old kid having sex with his 15.5 y/o girlfriend who is my daughter an dshe contracts an HPV infection from him ... I have a REAL PROBLEM WITH THAT and I'd want him punished for demoralizing a minor!

Now, we could always go back to THIS brouhaha:

Please Think About This When You Press for Harsher Sex Offender Laws
 

RC deWinter (418)
Thursday September 6, 2007, 12:17 pm
By the way, Blue's message ends with the word "minor!"
 

Blue Bunting (855)
Thursday September 6, 2007, 12:19 pm
Cate, there's a reason that a "minor" canNOT consent to sex with an adult ... so your contention that sex between a 15.5 y/o (who is not qualified to consent) and an 18 y/o flies out the window.

The law protects minors. 18 y/o cannot "charm" them into "consensual" sex ... it's still rape!
 

RC deWinter (418)
Thursday September 6, 2007, 12:28 pm
Blue, if the situation involved your SON, would you feel the same? This issue is another reason that both our state prosecutors and public defenders have a hard time with rigidly defining sex offenders too harshly, and I have no doubt that in other states this is an issue too.
 

Blue Bunting (855)
Thursday September 6, 2007, 12:36 pm
Yes, Cate, I would. My father and mother brought up two daughters and one son. My brother was warned about sex with minors just as we were taught to protect ourselves against unwanted advances and coersion by predatory adults or "group pressure" from our peers.
 

Charles C. (160)
Thursday September 6, 2007, 12:36 pm
Cate, I sure see your point, although I must admit that I would have not been a happy camper about a 18-19 year old guy having sex with my 15-16 year old daughter, even if they both agreed. Having said that, I surely would not classify the boy as a pedophile and sentence to life in jail!! I would just have a fist to face talk with him and explain the facts of life, that if he comes near my daughter again, his manhood would be hanging on my wall!!!
Do I sound over protective? Must be an Italian Dad thing.....I am thankful to have a smart daughter that knew better.....
 

Blue Bunting (855)
Thursday September 6, 2007, 12:42 pm
Charles, that's almost precisely what my dad did; when meeting each of our "dates" my father would explain what the consequences would be if any of us were "hurt" in any way; he made it profoundly clear that he wouldn't need to seek police intervention and that hospital bills would not be covered for those incurring his wrath.

We knew enough to heed my father's "gentle" warning/reminder!
 

Charles C. (160)
Thursday September 6, 2007, 12:58 pm

Who would want this idiot? Yuck! Are women desperate? She is sick, sick, sick-the 33 year old needs help-talk about co-dependency-well, it's not an "in" term anymore, however, it certainly describes this relationship-at least on HER part. He's just a scumbag. I love it when these buzzards get caught! Another down.....noted.

The wife could be an abused, browbeaten, intimidated, isolated woman herself. It's just a possibility I'm raising. The husband could've not told her the truth about the girl's age. If the wife has to work 70 hours at Walmart to support the lazy creep, maybe she is a basket case and too exhausted to think straight.
These are the sorts of things I would consider if I were a judge or on a jury.

Of course none of it may be true. But, often the wife in such cases IS co-erced to some degree.
She doesn't sound like some sort of sex fiend, if what she says about her working has any truth in it.......
Her body language in the photo suggests she is much less sure of herself than her husband is.........

Yes, Jennie, co-dependency. People often don't understand why abused women stay with the abuser. They are so ISOLATED they FEEL there aren't any choices.
This creep put his WIFE AND CHILD at risk, and didn't care. {I have heard, that the "risk of getting caught" can be part of the sexual thrill.}

There is nothing wrong with a wife consenting to a husband having a mistress -- happens all the time.
There is no evidence that this woman had her husband's fixation on underage girls. Or that she DIRECTLY wanted to abuse and have sex with the girl. At least not in THIS news account. No evidence that she wanted to watch, photograph, etc., or got off on it.
It sounds to me like a possibility that this woman was being a "Stepford wife" and just giving in to everything her husband said. Using NO MORAL JUDGEMENT OF HER OWN. Because she felt HELPLESS.

In speaking up for the underdog, let's not forget about abused wives and girlfriends. As I said, it is impossible for many of us to imagine the amount of coercion that takes place -- we say WE would never stand for it!
Reading some of the STORIES of abused women, might give a different perspective.

I am not saying that is the case here -- I wouldn't know.
If I were a judge or on a jury, I would weigh the FACTS -- whether there are in fact, different degrees of guilt. Moral guilt, too. Having said that, yes, she WAS guilty, definitely, of a conspiracy to commit a heinous crime, "aiding and abetting".
But before turning a lynch mob loose on HER, or "branding her for life", etc................ MORE FACTS in the case are needed.

The thing to be CELEBRATED HERE AND NOW IS THAT THE PREDATORS IN THIS CASE WERE APPREHENDED AND WILL SERVE JAIL TIME. No desperate young girl was exploited and murdered. The teenaged son will get counseling and a placement where, we hope, he can see modeled for him what oure, unperverted love is--I pray this experience will resolve his own oain and confusiion.'

Rape and abuse of a child is never okay.. NEVER... but as some pointed out, this "child" was 15, a runaway, and... well, not a "child". Please know that I would never condone or pardon anyone who abuses anyone
under the age of ......21!!...... , but we all know that teens have a mind of their own, and will make mistakes.
I truly believe that communcation, understanding, and a true interchange of "morals" is necessary between
caregivers and teens. By the way.. my youngest daughter is 13, and I will do EVERYTHING within my power to protect her in every sense of the word.

I watched all of the videos they made to "welcome" the girl... and I have to say, the woman seems to be really unhinged... she mentioned several times that wes "found" her when she was only 16 - so he basically had the opportunity to brainwash her from an early age. I wonder if they are making any effort to de-program her while she is in custody. I wonder what her home life was like, that she was vulnerable to a predator like this man...

Duly noted. A Judge will hear the facts of the case and render the sentence under judicial guidelines. His wife is just as guilty as her husband, and probably is a bit Bi-sexual.

As far as branding, micro-chips etc, thats a very foolish idea I feel. Micro-chips, like all other tactics the neo-cons have planned for everyone, just gets another hand up to the Police State we now have to live with..

A little tidbit for you , the porn industry is run by woman who make millions a year. They no longer need pimps they handle everything themselves. Men make from 30 to $60,000 a year as pornstars, 95%of the business is woman controled and they are well educated to boot. Again the playground of the rich. And in those states where prostitution is legal. The streetwalker is a man woman or child who is in the most danger of being killed, nothing happens, their the unwanted amonst us.

If as a parent you have not addressed their sexuality issues before 12 years of age You have lost. Your sold every article of clothing, food, etc. on TV because sex sells. We have 8000 kids homeless here in Florida alone, no jobs for kids they go to the low paid adults first. Breeding grounds for boys and girls to sell ther bodies to anyone who has a few bucks. 13-15 year olds are what we were like at 17-20.
 

Martin K. (80)
Thursday September 6, 2007, 5:28 pm
There are 8000 homeless kids in Florida alone. 3 million homeless in the USA and a quarter of them come from abusive homes,40% families who work and can not find a reasonable affordable shelter, the rest our Vietnam veterans. If you were raised in a home where that abuse went on you would as a child see that as normal. Like perhaps his wife. Many of the male kids I worked with were not abused by their fathers as much as their mothers and grandmothers. I had many young woman abused by uncles , grandfathers etc. as well.
I am happy those disturbed people were caught, but if their incarceration does not have a psych. TX plan, they will come out the same. As far as branding and microchips, bull, you have a computer, a cell phone your already chiped my friends, we live in a fast growing police state.

Tatoo's and/or microchipping might seem like a good idea at first, but please remember the following: The criminal charge with the highest conviction rate is sexual abuse against children. The charge which has the highest rate of false accusations is sexual abuse against children. What are you going to do with that tatoo if it's proven that you are innocent?

First off let me say that is great that they catch people like this. I have lived in St. Lucie County for 35 yrs. I just think this should also be known. I lived on the streets of Ft. Pierce for over five yrs.. All my fault & addicted to both drugs & alcohol.. I will stop here, I would be getting off the subject. Let me just say that the Ft. Pierce Cops are one of the worst cops there ever could be. From using street walkers for there sexual pleasures & it goes on & on.
Let me say again, I am glad these people got caught, don`t get me wrong. So if you would like to hear about some real crooks that are called Ft. Pierce Cops, let me know. I could talk for 2 days & not tell the same story twice. So if there are any Ft. Pierce Cops reading ths, which most can`t, they will probably be knocking my door down in about an hour. Sorry folks, but I have to call them as I see them. I do apolgize to everyone. But if you have seen what I have seen, you would want to shout it from the rooftops what goes on here!!!

Hey you can't believe every thing first of all Wal-mart will not pay any one that much overtime they pay NO overtime. Maybe she is a manager but I doubt it. The husband did she support him? Was this some sick thing
they did regularity to earn money or just for kicks. Either way they needed a longer sentence. then they got.
If it would have been tried in Florida They would have gotten many more years and the prisons are not air
conditioned so they could have really have enjoyed the heat. What they did is worse than being a mass murderer in prison and any where else no matter what the degree.Even having an photo of an under age child in an unclothed state will put you behind bars.
I pity the son he probably knows way to much to early and now will need a lot of counseling for a long time
lets hope he has some caring family to help.

This is a time where we started to doubt about our justice and how is administrated.
I am sorry that their son would suffer for his parents mistakes, but this couple never thought about this child when they become involved in such offensive crime.
Jail sometimes could be a deadly punishment for child predators, since prisoners follow their own rules, and child offenders are one of their targets, they were considered less than trash.
I have to agree that our law is not working in the way they used to be or perhaps in the way all of us would like to see, since laws todays are manipulated by corruption in many cases or by people without remorse.
I am please that in this case they were captured, however the punishment looks extremely light compared with the offense, and in top of that the possibility of parole could represent an insult to our society who still believe in our institutions.
Good job and thank you Cate !

Pahrump, really has a Wal Mart?
According to a couple of posts here.
It would seem to me that if one is accused of child molestation, they are automatically guilty and should be disposed of. Should they also be tattooed and chipped or do we save that for the real pedophiles?
I agree, true pedophiles need to be dealt with, but let's make sure they're guilty first.
1 strike and then one spends the rest of their lives behind bars wouldn't be bad if it pertained to everyone for everything. DUI, lose your license for life, works for me. Assault someone, spend the rest of your life locked up.
1 strike would be rediculous for any crime.
Seems they have plenty of time to think about it, I'm sure they didn't get what they deserve, but they deserve what they got.
Just my opinion. Thanks Cate. Noted

There are a lot of sick people out there and the more we can catch and put away, the better it is for all of us. Personally I am a survivor of sexual molestation and abuse from the time I was a very small child (started around the age of 2 and continued into my early adulthood), so my thoughts on this subject hit real close to home. If I had my way, sexual predators would be castrated and then put away forever. There wouldnt be any need for them to be monitored because they would never be out in society again ever. The idea of a microchip for tracking reasons is a good one though, its so true that once these bastards are let out of prison, no one can seem to keep track of them, so something with a GPS system I think is warranted. At least with a program like that, the authorities couldnt come back and say "gee, we just are so understaffed and dont have enough time to keep traack of everyone with the caseloads we have".

We have to get more serious about the safety of our children. WE can tell them as much as possible that there are bad people out in the world who want to hurt them, but there will always be that one person who will be able to get over on our children, either because they seem so nice, or they will temp the child with presents that parents wont provide. There are all kinds of ways that these people know how to entrap our children, so it is up to us to change the laws, make them the strictest they can be and be more vigilent and catch these creeps and make sure they are put away for good.

Thanks Cate for passing this imprtatn news around. And btw, Ilive in south Florida ad we do have very good laws against child abusers and molesters. Now all we need is for the rest of the country to do the same.

This is such a sad story on so many levels. I don't recall seeing castration mentioned as an option for sick-minded individuals like this guy. Maybe if he had a JOB, he wouldn't have enough time or energy to think about or fullfil his twisted fantasies! The fact that his wife worked 2 FT jobs (70 hours) and "wanted to keep him satisfied so she wouldn't lose him"? ! This is extremely sad. She is obviously a victim of poor parenting and abuse herself. Their kid is going to need all the help he can get in order to break the cycle. We feel sorry for him now, but if he doesn't get help, he may very well turn into his "father". I doubt he's going to get much sympathy if that happens. Thanks Cate, noted!

Why chip them? Why should they ever be allowed out into society again? Think of the damage that is forever done to the children they rape and sodomize. Those scars NEVER heal, why should they ever see the light of day again? Either lock them up for life, neuter them if they have to be let out into society, or put them to death.

OMG, they are lower than the level of a brute. People like that should be locked up and never allowed to have a chance at parole! Dangerous type of people - SICK.

2 parasites down, and many more to go ! These two pieces of trash should be getting the same sentencing. The wife is just as guilty. I cannot see how these 2 perverts could not have corrupted their son as well. They are too warped. And, how do we really know that the boy is really their son? For all anyone knows, he might be another "runaway" or "lure" they had. Who knows? Thanks Cate! Noted.

Shame they didn't go for someone a little older who would have been legal, as I can see why they wanted someone, just should have been someone of legal consenting age.
Of course that makes me a bit of a hypocrite as I was 14 when I first consented to sex, but I have no regrets over that.
As a parent I think they should have gone for someone of legal age.

To be honest I think the police should be dealing with the more dangerous paedophiles, and child kidnappers, this couple didn't have any malicious intentions apart from the obvious sexual acts.

15 years ago, I caught a young man (age 18 yrs) with my daughter (age 14 yrs) and I am not sorry to say that I went after him with a baseball bat landing a good few shots on him. In today age, there is a hell of a lot of abuse done by children and adults to other children and adults. Some say "lets be lenient" to teenagers and punish the Adults, but where does one draw the line?
