Blankenship told WSAZ.com the case involved search warrants and consent forms to read private Facebook messages between Workman and the 13-year old. She says the two had been chatting online for four months.

It’s so hard for some guys to find girls who are their intellectual equals.
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)
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.
Sounds like a couple of healthy horney kids having a good “go at it” to me. Sounds like they both enjoyed it. I’m not sure a shotgun would be needed!
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,
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.
How sad. May Jesus someday be your friend.
Is this a test? I don’t want to get my brain reved up for nothing.
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.
Would this even be a news item 150 years ago?
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.
My neighbor across the street married when she was 14. In 1967.
When does God approve of marriage for a young lady?
As for your association with Jesus, you seem to think it is all right for two people to have sex without being married ... am I missing something?
Sure it would, in the gossip column. Something like "Sigh of relief that Miss Whoever finally gets her man".
That's the point of the shotgun and knives. I'm big on the MARRIED thing.
As my girls did. After their education, time in service, and my blessing.
Then what the heck are we arguing about?
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).
“Lets say he was 18 and she was 14. He was HS Senior, she was Freshman.. Is it ok? (Still a crime)
Now hes 13 and shes 15.. is it ok? (Its 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.
