  1. Ok so it was also her fault if u think about it of course it wasn't her fault she got raped but she shouldn't have been talking to a 27 year old or go with him of course I feel bad but still

  2. 9 Years??? He is already out, and this teenager took her own life 100% because of him.
    Some dude will get 15-20 for carrying cocaine or marijuana and this guy gets 9 years. WOW

  3. Some true facts but clinical depression can be managed. Very sad story and very sorry for the loss of your beautiful daughter. I totally get it
    .She was so traumatized and did not see a happy ending or future without pain. I hope anyone reading that has done something terrible or is thinking about it will stop and think about this beautiful soul.

  4. Amazing that he even got charged and found guilty because normally when you no longer have a victim, the case can't go forward and it gets drop.
