And if this was two years ago and she was 15 then, she's 17 now, so still underage. If she's continuing in that behavior as you said, she needs help, not victim blaming. For all we know she is psychologically scarred and acting that way due to trauma.

But this comment is conjecture, sorry.

@2girlsmom: I agree this should have been reported far earlier than it was. Sadly most cases of rape never get reported. I want to remind you though that she is not "as guilty as they are." She obviously made some very stupid choices that resulted in some lifelong consequences. However, she was under 18. They weren't. It's as simple as that. She was a child and no child can consent, no matter what situation she has put herself into. These men chose to ignore that and now they are facing their lifelong consequences, and thank God. Not enough rapists get caught and punished.

Gunsrock....I do not disagree with you at all and every word you said is true. These parties evidently were more adults than kiddies and they should have been turned away. This should have been brought to the attention of authorities right then and not 2 years later. Its just a sad shame that so many lives are ruined by alcohol and drugs!

2girlsmom, we don't have to judge the court will do that. But it doesn't take a genius to know that if you are over 18 and she or he is under 18 you will be considered a pedofile and have to register as a sex offender probably for the rest of your life. Everyone knows there are girls out there that do this, intentionally to get the attention of people. It ***** but that is why the adult has to say no. Besides that, these guys should have known better to be at a party with under age kids. That is just asking for what they are getting now. You may disagree but that is how it is.

Nope Matt4685 I am not a family member but a member of a community. I know one of the boys and he is not a pedophile to say the least. You are just reading what is in the paper and have no clue. I do not condone partying but this girl is as guilty as they are and she continues to do the same things as she has done over these two years, so you can lay all the blame on these boys. Sorry, doesn't get it for me. Don't judge before you know the truth!!

It is up to the adults to say NO. Even if a little girl with no upbringing throws herself at them - it is up to the ADULT to say go away little girl.

just makes me sick to hear about people doing this kind of crap. I agree that the genitals should be cut off of these two men and anyone else who commits these type of acts

Can't these freaks find any girls there own age, they have to go after children? They are certainly old enough to know better. Guy might have a point. Right after the dads get to visit them, with their ball bats.

If the 2 "Men???" are found guilty of sex crimes,the only viable solution and further prevention of this act is merely to whack off the genitals. Then,case will be closed111
