Carlton Carvel Bates

Carlton Carvel Bates

First I want to give props to AL.com for using the word rape in their headline regarding the following incident. Underage children can not legally consent to sex so it is a form of rape.

Anyway, 35-year-old Carlton Carvel Bates or Birmingham, Alabama, is accused of allegedly ‘having sex (i.e. child rape) with a 14-year-old girl that he met, where else, on the mobile messaging app Kik. Prior to his arrest Bates had already ‘had sex’ with the Blount County girl on at least one occasion. On this trip however Bates went to the girl’s high school in an attempt to check her put of class. Luckily the school staff didn’t fall for it.

Think about that for just a moment. This man allegedly went to the girl’s school an hour away from his home, walked into the school and spoke with school staff possibly posing as a relative in an attempt to check her out of class for the sole purpose of ‘having sex’ with a 14-year-old girl. That’s a new parents’ nightmare for you.

Luckily it was his hubris that caused his downfall. The school contacted police who posed as the girl on Kik and maybe no so ironically arrested him outside of an establishment called Mugshots.

Not to belabor the point but if you’re not keeping an eye on your kids’ online activities the many sex offenders and pedophiles using the Kik app will.
