Before we get to the heart of the matter it’s time for me to clear things up with the media again about their choice of words. When a 41-year-old guy ‘has sex’ with an underage girl he’s not ‘having a relationship’ with her, he’s not ‘having sex’ with her and he’s not ‘having sexual contact’ with her. He’s raping her. It’s called statutory rape for a reason. So how about calling a spade a spade and not worrying about hurting the feelings of sex offenders by calling these scumbags what they are, rapists.
Anyway, 41-year-old Randall Roberts of Columbus, Ohio was arrested by federal investigators for allegedly raping a 15-year-old girl that he met through the goth themed social site VampireFreaks. The girl’s father eventually found text messages from Roberts to his daughter. Eventually investigators were able to use the text messages to lure Roberts into a sting.
Before we get to the bonus parts of the story let me just say this. If you’re male and over 24 and still hanging out on VampireFreaks you are giving off a creeper vibe.
When police searched Roberts’ home they found a grow operation that consisted of 120 full-grown pot plants. But wait there’s more.
Roberts has another pending case involving the alleged rape of another 15-year-old girl.
For the most recent rape Roberts is looking at 10 years behind bars. While I am in no way a fan of weed the sad part is he’ll probably get more time for the drugs than he will for the rapes of two girls.
