A man has been sentenced to more than 10 years in jail for having sex with a 14-year-old he met on Xbox Live; after traveling 30 hours to get to her.
That's downright wrong.
Guys like this make me sick. Online gaming should just be used for team work in video games, not to have cyber sex with an underage girl, it's just sick practice.
Man, that's disgusting. This guy should never be let out again.
Sadly instead of life, he is just going in for a decade, which most likely if he does a great job in jail will have parole and in no time he'll be out. Does anyone think that this could have also been legitimate love?
for the same game maybe haha but on a more serious note..i dont think he should be locked up..save prisons for the real criminals...this guy should have been locked up for a weekend and maybe lose both thumbs..have fun going through life with no thumbs
It is possible. We don't know the details though. But at the end of the day, 27-year-old...14-year-old...I mean, come on. Considering he was on her myspace page, I'm sure he would have known she was 14. Big problem with kids on Xbox Live is what they are exposed towards. For example, language. Some kids can take and accept the language at a young age and use it in a way which is not harmful or ultimately rude, but many will copycat. Isn't the service officially 18+? I seem to remember that.
The sicko should b shot dead
It's called parental control settings, learn to use them. And I hope this guy gets sodomized like hell in jail so he learns his effing lesson when he gets out.
NAMBLA episode of Southpark but in this case it's a female.
No really, he travelled 30 hours "non-stop" just to fXXk her so she had to be hot right? And if she was a hot 14 year old girl, what the hell was she doing on xbox live in the first place. A hot, 14 year old gamer girl? Maybe he thought she was worth it and WAS in "love".
I like how people are going around the forum disagreeing with those that said this is very wrong and perverted. Whoever thinks this story isn't evil and gross can go to hell. Good thing prison will be absolute torture for this guy. Good riddance.
Everyone who said this was wrong has at least 5 disagrees! WTF?! Maybe the N4G community is even worse than I thought...
wants to bang people she meets on XBL----you've failed as a parent. And if you are a 30 yr old man, who wants to bang 14 yr old girls(not just on XBL, but PERIOD)----you've failed at life.
I don't know why so many disagrees, but this "guy" deserve this
It's disgusting to me that parents would not be informed enough with their kids to know that this stuff happens. I am a parent of two and keep tabs on what they do in my house. Call it an invasion of privacy or call it a parent being in control of what their kids do while under my roof, it matters not to me. I plan to make sure my kids do not wind up in this position... I don't feel like feeling the need to put a shot gun in some 30 year olds face for screwing my kid.
Using these mediums to interact with others will naturally involve having relationships. Remember when people reach that age they are more aware of their sexuality and things like this are bound to happen. In any case the law restricts relationships by enforcing age limits. So even if it was a consensual relationship America deems the law as superior and so this guy has to suffer years in jail. Lets all not forget, the girl wasn't exactly playing as the hopeless naive victim, she was sending her picture to him!!! I think that's the reason why people are disagreeing with comments who are condemning this act. In so many countries around the world a girl aged 14-15 can have sexual relationships and its NOT against the law. So reactions to such events will vary depending on where you live and what your attitudes are towards love and maturity. However this Guy clearly understood the risks he was taking (since he lives in America) and for him to travel all that far shows he was either desperate and needed soma or was truly in love. Also the Parents obviously failed to protect their child from making detrimental decisions without their knowledge. Its actually very appalling that the girl her self didn't bother informing her parents if she knew what was going to happen!!
It's called practicing adequate parental supervision! It's not a setting that you can just turn on!!!
No i was talking about the parental control settings on the actual console. I know what I was talking about. And I know the damn system has one, cause I own one. But thanks for trying.
no worries, he's gonna get it in jail
..if it were a 14 year old male and 27 year old female, no one would think it was a bad thing (there is also a south park episode for this as well). I live in Nevada and good thing it did not happen here. If you are caught having sex with a 14 year old it is a mandantory life sentence, no parole, no last second deals, its a go to ail for life card. Funny thing though is at 16, you are legal age of consent even if one party is 16 and the other like 40. Great state I tell ya.
You are right on one aspect of it, but adequate supervision also includes continuous supervision. Not just turning on a setting and turning your back.
Kinda non-gaming in a way, but at the same time - reminds you that Xbox Live isn't all just gaming and socialising. =S
Yea, sadly a few people that decide to use it for other purposes than gaming, ruin it for the rest of the Xbox Live community.
correction - reminds you that "online services" arent all just for gaming and socializing
Anyone can use it for whatever they wish really, people do pay $50 online. The thing is, it's hard for MS to monitor something like this if people are not reporting these types of people, but than again, it seems that this girl was enjoying this, for all we know she might have been a little slut.
He didn't get 10 years specifically for using XBOX live to commit pedophilia. He got 10 years for pretty much JUST committing pedophilia. These titles offer little to do with games. Still, 10 years is the least he deserves. He'll be feeling it in jail tho.
Well, it does say "lure" but I get your point.
This has everything to do with gaming. The 360 is a social tool and parents need too monitor what their children do on it. If gaming is another gateway for pedos to prey, then let it be addressed. Also shows the dangers kids face on LIVE. It's a community flooded with young gamers and moms and dads are resposible for keeping an eye out.
This isn't just an issue with live. it's an issue with all socail Networking services these days. There was A story like this about wow last year. This is A Problem With anyone that can access the internet. unfortunately it's so hard for authorities to regulate.
I take it you've never been on PS Home its a pedophiles dream come true.
XBOX Live JUMP IN...... my car little kids... On a serious note, This guy should be water boarded and then raped in jail then given the chair. What is wrong with people these days?
wen you can't find someone there own age jump in more like jump on i kidd i kidd lol
Live Jump in I got candy in the van
HAHA, have a bubble that was good. @the disagrees- What a tool, you are either a hardcore xbox guy or a pedo or probably both. To all the disagrees please tell us what kinda van you have so the normal people on here can avoid/report you.
nah, I've never been to PSHome so I can't compare these two services. All I know is that whenever I play Gears2 or Halo3, I always hear a lot of screaming/swearing kids (I can't even understand what are they saying most of the time) and retards who claim to have sexual relations with various members of my family.
why are these stupid articles always getting approved? This is true life people and it happens all the time, it's nothing new. I'll rather hear something else than this c#@p. We all have to move along with our lives and worry more about the games.
Games are not more important if the gamers re being raped
I'm sure 90% of the time it goes unreported
This is a proof that the X-Box community on live allot of kids are playing vey sad to read this. But this is really disgusting.
30 hrs? that's some psycho sh*t
"Virtually non stop". The look that must have been on that guys face during that entire ride makes me laugh. Seriously though I'm glad they convicted this scumbag, hopefully he'll like the games he'll be playing in jail.
Xbox Live it only does pedophiles
MariusElijah he only does bad jokes
oh that wasnt a joke
Thats the main reason that a ps3 fangirl doesnt do the change from PSN to Xbox Live because they might get sexually abused which is going to lead them to get mentally traumatized which might prevent them from playing chicken lil, oh i mean lil big planet for life!!! suck on that ps3 fangirls! "Marius/Saaking" hahahah! just dont get to traumatized about it!!!
Well a 14 year old Girl isn't prepubescent so this is not a case of paedophilia.
Really isn't joking, there are ALOT of Xbox fanboys on 4chan's /v/ board like 10 to every 1 ps3 fan or anybody who isn't a d!ckbag there, and 4chan is a site that mostly supports pedophilia and jailbait and such things... Hmmmmmmm maybe being an Xbot doesn't seem like such a noble thing anymore, heh.
He's going to be anally raped, possibly killed in prison. Inmates, even murderers, absolutely HATE pedos.
They hate them because they have families and feel like they cannot do anything to help their families while they are in prison. So they feel the best thing to do is to get rid of pedos when they are in prison.
I don't know if either of you two have ever been locked up but that is exactly how it is. you could have robbed you grandma, killed a mother to steal her car so you could get across town faster to pick up a crack rock and be fine, but if you messed with a kid, your in for a bad time. Trust me I've see first hand want they do to people like that, and he WILL get what's coming to him. Convicts have kids too.
im glad that im PS3 owner. :)
XBOX Live JUMP IN....... to my car little kids
Only ten years, for a case like this it should be life.
Only in america can you get the same jail time for murder and possession of weed, makes perfect sense.
@LIL T I agree the system is ass backwards. @Scar 360WA - Really? Now if he stormed into a house and raped an 8 year old girl, then by all means Execute him. But this guy met a girl online, talked to her, she let him in, decided they should meet and they did it. No rape, no murder. Just love? When two people love eachother there really no stopping it. She wasnt a baby. She was 4 years shy of 18, 4 years is nothing. And Don't give me that "Shes not mentally stable bullsh*t" I was horny as hell at 13. Its like some of you where NEVER teenagers I swear.
Soon all the worlds pedophilers will be too busy trying to get to Milo to hurt any real ppl.
So what happens to the girl? no house arrest? She just gets off so she can get another 18+ yr old in trouble again. shes the slut. she could have told him to get lost but she didnt.
i guess its the minors fault an adult didn't know right from wrong. keep the pedophile in you in check buddy because if you think like that you'll end up with this other dude in prison.
she obviously had plans to have sex. some girls wait till highschool others dont whats the difference her hvavin sex with a seventeen year old or her havin sex with a 27 year old. either way shes a slut only reason guys her own age would say its wrong cuz that one girl they cant potentionally bang. teenagers are horny as f*ck. parents cannot control it...and if they try there just gunna make matters worst all you can do is hope they have sex with someone there with and not one knight stands at partys or have threesomes unless its ur son then you give him a pat on the back. cuz that scenerio doesnt happen easy for a guy atleast.... like i understand both sides......personally when u say he should be killed amd what not like ten years is a long time...personally i thing the whole underage sex law is very flawed. so many cases where a girl that looks older lies about her age then the guy gets 10 years. then she just goes and does it again. girls have way to much fin power. step into this guys shoes before you get all republican on his a$$...personally i agree it is wrong to have sex with a 14 year old and im only 20. 14 year olds are so immature and stupid. for a guy over 14 would even want to be with a immature 14 year old beats me. sometimes i wanna date an older girl cuz damn young girls have no fin clue what they want...its just a bs gong show.......so basically im split i think they should make there decision on punishment by looking at the circumstance. its someones life at stake. i dont know the story maybe she was vulnerble and he manipulated her but really a girl like that can be manipulated by anyone even a guy her age. her rents should be responsible for getting her help. cuz in reality u cant expect guys to deny sex.......so basically what im saying is as the system says its okay for a guy under 18 to manipulate a girl to have mutual sex but then a 27 year old gets 10 years in the same situation. please tell me the difference between having sex with a 27 year old and a 18 year old. oh yeah there is none except by a law. shes a slut aka vulnerable, has issues. and his a horny guy that likes sex.....age really issnt a factor. everyone knows 14 year olds are horny. but there is an age limit where its by no means a possibility of being mutual its rape. and they should factor that into these cases. oh yeah and u guys are getting disagreed cuz ur being close minded about this and being unrealistic and un logical. your comments are clouded by your own ethics not on the case. personally i avoid 14, 15, 17 sometimes 18 year olds they are anoying and theyll do anything to fit in these days....hang out with way older guys, date alot, drink alot smoke, do drus...its sad really shame gunna have to raise my kids in this....when im a parent i can tell you im more worried about my kid doing drugs and smoking. id rather walk in on my daughter having sex then walk in on her doing coke with some guy or smoking....cuz i know from expierenced that sexual feelings are natural and if i try to force her to hide them she'll hate me and have sex to spite me. people that get other people hooked on hard drugs should be punished . drugs> sex. imo sorry bout the legth alot to say about this topic.....i have one bubble so im sure writing this was pointless lol but whatever......
Your views are enlightening and are actually are very pertinent. Yes I agree, this girl certainly should have been punished just like how the guy was punished, at the end of the say it was mutual and not forced.
This is what happens when you have party chat and cross game chat. Its so easy to corner a little kid. Im glad alll the pervs and sickos are on the x360.
yah keep thinking that. The internet is littered with them. Home has it's fair share of pedos. and So does live. the issue isn't which service has more. But what can we do to stop this kinda thing from happening
How was she cornered? Read the article, they communicated on cell phone, facebook ect. She totally let it happen. Im sick of all the close mindedness on the subject. BOTH the guy and the girl should be punished. But your all going to just go, poor girl, was "raped" and abused, when she was acually a slut. Some of you seem to forget the alarming amount of Sexually active 13+ year olds. They arent being raped either. None of you went to city Highschool huh?
if he liked her he should of proposed to her and sorted her out later when she was of age. but no , so he gets punishment from his countrys law
Now we know why Zhuk hasn't replied to Darksniper's blog.
It's a 15 year old not 14 year old. This site just changed the age to make it seem more shocking. Look at the original article.
That's so much betta?
Not true. She's 15 now, 14 at the time. Consult the second link in the article.
Hes sick in the head and shes 14 old enough to tell her parents and not get friendly with a grown man. We will have have sick old men/women but some teens should know better. Some of these little boys/girls(ages 13 to 17) think their grown.
