    While I fully understand the principle of publishing this article listing detailed info on local sex offenders, I can not help but feel that once again, due to the lack of knowledge, hasty assumption, and pure ignorance, my son will continue to be stereotyped into a category for which he does not belong.

    Yes his girlfriend was 16, a few months from 17 I might add, and Brice a recent 21 year old Iraqi War Vet in denial of his PTSD. They met through mutual friends and enjoyed each others company which evolved into a serious & monogamous relationship.

    Was it ever mentioned SHE pursued him? And that more often than not, provided or paid for the “party favors” for their consumption? Of course not!

    They dated exclusively & her parents were aware all along….. so Aggravated Sexual Assualt with a Sex Offender Label is justified? Not hardly!!

    After all he was the adult & should have known better, right? I disagree, as he was lost & confused mentally & emotionally, and let me add severely depressed from a year long combat tour that unfortunately gives ALL of you the the right to stare down your nose at him! I’m sure he appreciates your respect for his honorable & awarded service for your Freedom!

    I pray that people will have the respect & decency to gather the facts prior to jumping to conclusions about a young man that would NEVER harm a child in any way what so ever. I pray for this every day!!
