This kid is a striaght up sexual predator. I know Tom and even since I've know him he has always had a passion for hanging out with little kids. No one who knows him is at all surprised by the charges that he has come across in his life. Lock up this sexual predator, and throw away the key!

Wrong is wrong. Know the law before you mess with an underage person, male or female. Even my 16 year old daughter knows if she fell "in love" with an 18 year old he could be the one in trouble if things went too far, same as if she was 18 and something happened with her and a 16 year old boy. The law is the law whether you agree with it or not and crossing the line can lead to a lifetime of consequences.

ummm....I care. Someone who did not learn from very serious consequences and does not follow through with the conditions of their freedom may well be a predator who is trying to hide their whereabouts. He is 23 now and not a kid by any means. He would not be in the news and not be in trouble now if he'd followed the conditions to which he AGREED.
