According to the criminal complaint, Workman had sex with a 13-year-old girl he met on Facebook. Troopers say he confessed to knowing the girl was 13.

"They started chatting through Facebook and decided at one point to meet in person, and a sexual relationship started," West Virginia State Trooper Blankenship told WSAZ.com.

He needs to “have a seat right over there”.

Being that he is in West Virginia, seems that he could have held out until the family reunion.

He needs to have his manhood removed, and spend the rest of his worthless life in prison serving the needs of Buba and his friends.

2 of my ex-wives were 8 years younger than me.

One of my ex's grandmothers was married when she was 13.

I'm not willing to damn a 19 year old forever for dating a 13 year old.

If it wasn't consentual, I do have knives.

And someone should have a shotgun available in case a wedding is needed.

I can't support that.

No, I just think that his punishment should meet the crime. He wants sex, give it to him.

Sex with a 13 year old is ok with you (teens being teens), obviously you don’t have a 13 year old daughter.

I had only daughters. And knives. And a shotgun. And of course, a growl.

My girls grew up good and had their babies over a year after they were married.

Depends on how you raise 'em. But they do need a daddy there.

I feel bad the guy’s live will be ruined. He should be punished but I have a feeling he will be punished with lifetime offender status..

There is a gray area
Lets say he was 18 and she was 14. He was HS Senior, she was Freshman.. Is it ok? (Still a crime)

Now he’s 22 and she’s 17, College Senior and College Freshman, is it ok.. (It’s legal)

Now he’s 13 and she’s 15.. is it ok? (It’s actually still a crime)

I did have. And they grow up to be good girls. Served their time in their service of choice, and then got married and had kids.

But yes, you did advocate castration and forced man-on-man sex. And I don't see that as right.

And if my ex's grandmother didn't get married and start making babies at age 14, I wouldn't have those kids to brag about.

It's only historically recently that the ages have gone up.

So, you think a 13 year old is mature enough to subject herself to sex with a person many years her senior? Obviously another person that doesn’t have a 13 year old daughter,

You have issues. If you need to worry that much about your kid, you need to practice more at the range, and take her male friends with you.

And sit on a rocking chair, stropping a knife, or cleaning your shotgun.

For thousands of years, 13 was old enough for a young woman to be a wife.

Right up until the early 1900s, here in Texas.

Jesus and me are ok. We've spoken recently.

And I didn't have to repent for encouraging mutilation and forced man-on-man sex.

Pretty high-handed to assume I'm not Christian because I disagree with you.

For extra credit, find a quote from the Bible that says when it's ok for a young woman to marry.

The boy is in the hands of the law now, he will be labeled a sex offender and his life will be a shadow of what it might of been. The girl will have some issues also, nobody wins, somebody should of explained this all to them and why you don't do things like this before it happened. It sounds like a failure on the part of two families. I would of been much more judgmental if the man had been even older.

As someone who has spent many hours counseling young girls that have been fooled into sex by older men, I have seen what it costs the girls. And I find it down right idiotic to find anyone that encourages such behavior.

A thirteen year old, in today’s society, is not mature enough to have sex. Mayhap it was ok back in the day of the six-gun, and the wild west when the need for propagating was foremost, but not today.

I totally agree with you.

But if there was a worldwide calamity and most of the population was knocked off I would bet most of those left would say a different story.

when the times demand action then men must move.

You changed the subject again. And threw in some lines about wild west and six guns.

My neighbor across the street married when she was 14. In 1967.

When does God approve of marriage for a young lady?

Nope. But it does happen.

As my girls did. After their education, time in service, and my blessing.

You think that it's appropriate to advocate for castration of 19 year old boys and advocate for male-on-male forced sex, enforced by the state (in prison).

I happen to think my God wouldn't approve of advocating that. This conservative certainly doesn't.

Especially about a subject as open to debate as a 13 year old having sex with a 19 year old (Yes, it would be better if they were married).

But who am I to throw the first stone? I don't spend hours counselling young teenage girls. I just raised two good ones that have provided me with 5 grandchildren (no bastards).

Now he’s 13 and she’s 15.. is it ok? (It’s actually still a crime)”

I believe that West Virginia has a “Romeo & Juliet” law of four years. So neither of these cases would be illegal there.

I went to college in Western Pennsylvania in the late 1970’s and had a job working in the school cafeteria. The women in there were mostly farmer’s wives and it was not uncommon for their daughters to be married at 13 and having babies at 14, all with the joyous consent of the families. I don’t know what the state’s age of consent was at the time but it must not have been an issue.

Use the “half your age + 7” rule. Works every time.

You are 18? 9 + 7= 16. (senior and sophomore)

22 gives you an 18 year old.

It isn’t the law, but definitely helps figure out the skeeviness factor.

You ought to go see this losers FB page before they haul it down...looks like he had a raft of teeny boppers in his list. Seems to have a preference for young, long-faced girls with long, dark hair. This incident doesn’t look like an accident. Yeah, if he knew she was 13...give him the chair. The law is the law—don’t break it. Don’t like the law...vote in reps that will change it. This guy needs to move to Greece—at least he’ll get a disability check!

Bottom line: We all know the law. We all know things change when you turn 18 and your friends don’t. Use the limited blood supply God gave us to let the correct portion of the body make decisions like this and DON’T MESS WITH LITTLE GIRLS!
