    @darrelanderson if this is your futile attempt of bring sarcasm, humour or any of the latter to the offence of rape you fail miserably. This is a serious offence and when the case starts probably three years later she will be forced to relive every episode, every carnal detail and cross examined by lawyers seeking to find a clause in her behaviour to institute blame. You are an idiot….if you have nothing nice to say you read and smh or something. Should be your daughter, your niece or somebody that is in your bloodline at 14. It bears little relevance if she is short or 6 feet tall she is 14 and this alleged offence is a very serious ones committed on a princess of the soil

    You seem annoyed by what was said but over look a lot that some of these young girls present themselves as big grown woman looking for man and its only when you dig dip that you truly find out how young them is. She never said that she was rape but that what it comes down to because of her age young ladies need to act there age and not want to be woman when there are still children.

    What can you believe ,when you realize how many parents of these kids know they behaviour , because its in they favour not to be concern , when a 15 year old is paying her mother light and water bills what would you expect, but still most men have no character they are how they are, never thinking that they themselves have female families…wait and see ,the mother of this child should be brought to justice…

    well the accuse might still be found to be guilty ,but some teenage has outgrown their years that it is not always easy to tell ages in this day and age. You see fast foods like Cheffette , Colonel Sanders, and all the grease and spoon places springing up all over Barbados ,with pig tail, fried chicken, and Macaroni pie that not only the children ,but adults as well use as daily staples result in the early development of many young people. Sometimes one might be mistaken for being much,much older than they really are,and this often along with behavior traits lead some men into assuming that a natural teenager might be older than she presents herself.
    It is imperative that men especially should always find out the age of any women or girl before diving too deep in a relationship whether sexual or not. Sometimes women,girls, men lie about their ages only to find that it comes back to haunt them . I don’t know if this young lady did that ,but even if, and later came to her senses this “rider” should have been much more selective and careful in choosing his “mount”.

    He took a risky ride and got caught, he is 75% and she $25% to blame for breaking the law but stop wasting court time with this and find a suitable court for these things. All I can see happening now is this guy sponsors the mother of said child some thousands to drop the case and everyone walk away ok,,this aint the first time she or he broke the law.
