The Trench Reynolds Report

All Crime Is Personal

Santa Cruz man lied about age to seduce underage girl on Myspace, detective says:

29-year-old Edgar Atilano Silva of Santa Cruz, California was arrested last week for allegedly forcing a teen girl that he met over MySpace to have sex with him. Silva allegedly lied about his age to gain the girl’s trust before forcing himself upon her. He then allegedly revealed his true age to the girl.

The victim took over a year to come forward and it’s unknown why she took so long. I’m sure Mr. Silva’s defenders will try to use that to make it look like the victim is lying even though sexually abused victims may not come forward right away for a multitude of reasons.

Police think that Silva may have had more victims.

    I think the title of this article is borderline slander. Allegedly should be added. He has not yet been convicted, therefore he is not yet guilty. Media reports that presume to judge without all the facts hinder the right to a fair trial.
