Snapchat sleaze accused of luring 11-year-old into gym bathroom

Evan Anderson Berkland

19-year-old Evan Anderson Berkland, of Ankeny, Iowa, is accused of using Snapchat to lure an 11-year-old girl into sex. Berkland allegedly used the photo sharing app to lure the girl to a local gym where they ‘had sex’ in the gym’s bathroom. Again, if you’re new here, I call that child rape. No 11-year-old, no matter how mature they may seem, has any concept of the ramifications that an actual sexual relationship entails. Berkland is also accused of sending the girl an explicit image of himself and requested the girl reciprocate.

How many times do I have to say it? No one under 13 needs to be on Snapchat, and even if they’re 13 or over parents still need to check to see who their children are talking with through these apps. For all we know this miscreant could have abducted her since he was reportedly able to get her into a gym’s bathroom. Again, you may trust your child, but do you trust every stranger on the internet they’re talking to?
