Great job Det.Sanchez.What a vulgar man.I meen moron not a man.I'm sure he will be someone's girl friend in jail. I'm so against under age dating, sometimes these vaulnerable 13-18 yr. old girls get involved with an older man & they take advantage of these young girls. They may get gifts,jewlery,clothes,high end bags,then the are fooled by this "buying your love" relationship.The level of maturiety in these men are higher than a 14 yr.old girl.Mabey not. IT'S STILL THE LAW! I know I taught values & respect to my boy& it all begins in the home. Too much of this issue is going in our town.I'm so sickened by the whole issue.
