40 Year Old Marries 16 Year Old!

Sat Jun 23, 2007 12:48 am

Basically a 40 year old high school coach married one of his students....I know murder is illegal, but it would almost be worth a life sentence if that were my daughter.

That would have been the first thing authorities would have went after instead of looking for a reason to fire him from his job. Sounds like there is a loophole in Delaware law to allow this.

Not sure about the age of consent for the minor, but I saw on the news that her parents gave their consent in writing for the marrige.

Edit: The parents consent is also mentioned in the link posted by the thread starter.

It happened in Wilmington, NC, not Wilmington, DE. Anyways:

A note on defenses to statutory rape and related sex crimes: Consent is no defense, nor is mistake of age a
defense to the following statutory sex crimes in NC. However, marriage is generally a defense. The “age
of consent” to have sexual intercourse in North Carolina is 16. The age of marriage in North Carolina is
18, although parental or judicial consent may be given for minors aged 14-17 to marry.


However, if something happened prior to the marriage:

Indecent Liberties with a Student [GS 14-202.4, Class I felony or A1 misdemeanor]
Indecent and lewd acts by a teacher, administrator, coach, school safety officer or other school
personnel with a student at the same school, when the perpetrator is 4 or more years older than the victim
(Class I felony) or less than 4 years older (Class A1 misdemeanor).

The real thing to hit on here is the crappy parenting skills shown by her family. Why did they sign the consent form? Why didn't they shut off her cellphone when they found the text messages? Why didn't they retrict her Internet access when thy read the IMs and emails? Oh that's right....parents today want to be friends with their kids instead of giving them a proverbial swift kick in the ass when it is needed.

As peverted as the track coach is (and the girl isn't even hot) the real idiots here are the parents.

The age of consent is 16 in North Carolina so I would think she is no longer a minor in the eyes of the state thus the ability to put her name into print because there is no privacy issue. I'm not saying it is right or wrong but it is what it is and now it's out there for all to read or dismiss.

"Hi! We're your new neighbors!"



Look, all you need to know is what's written in the ABC.com story below (fair use excerpt):

Meanwhile, the Hagers say Windy withdrew, refusing to speak to them until she asked them to sign a consent form so that she and her coach — a man more than twice her age — could get married.

Although anguished, her weary parents gave in.

"Signing those consent forms was the hardest thing I did in my whole life, but we had to move on, it was going to kill us all," Dennis said.




I'm sorry - WHAT? YOU GAVE YOUR CONSENT BECAUSE YOU WERE WEARY AND HAD TO MOVE ON?

What kind of people are these parents?!? If my 14 year old developed a 2 year relationship with her coach, she'd be:

- off the track team
- out of that school

Or our family would move.

Or if I didn't want to do any of the above, I'd have a man-to-man meeting with him where I told him exactly how I planned to make his life a living, breathing hell of an existence if he didn't leave my underage daughter alone - with emphasis on the 'underage' part to remind him that it wouldn't take much for me to plant her panties in his desk at school and have him set up for statutory rape.

And I've already got the phone/text message documentation to show something odd is a-goin' on. Slam dunk.

But no, this father just gave in to his daughter because she threw a teenage fit and pouted. Well done, dad.

Of course there's a privacy issue. She's still a child in that she's under 18 - the age of consent for sex doesn't automatically become an age where privacy is abolished.

And anyway, this is a marriage. A newspaper has no right to publish details of a private marriage, let alone pictures and where the people work or go to school. To do so with a 16 year old child is disgraceful. There's potential for her to be bullied mercilessly at school, in which case I hope the news broadcasters foot the bill for relocation, earnings lost through lack of education and therapy.

I'm sure the folks at ABC, FoxNews, and whomever else has reported on the story have done their homework to make sure there is no privacy of juveniles law being violated. Of course you seem to think you are an expert on everything so I suppose we should all just make it easy on ourselves and just take every word you say as the be-all, end-all truth.  sarcastic

To play the devil's advocate:

How many of us would have actually LISTENED to our parents when we were 16, especially about matters of the heart? Not that long ago I even heard my neighbor's daughter scream about how her parents did not understand how much she 'loved' a guy!

At one point, her parents had to make the decision, and if they had NOT allowed the marriage, their daughter could have easily become estranged, God knows for how long.

And no, I would not like to have this happen to my two daughters, but the older our kids become, the less control we have over their life decisions.

Sometimes the way we believe we will react is completely opposite to the way we actually react.

After she has a couple of kids and is in a dead end job, she will then go crying home to mommy and daddy. Personally if I were her father, I would have been out for blood against the coach. If the school did not fire him, I would move her to a different school and sue the district.

IMHO I think the parents are more to blame than the girl. The coach should be on Chris Hansons "To catch a predator" Dateline.

I'm not supporting Fox News by any means here (and I agree they put some crappy headlines on their main webpage in spite of real news being out there) but your claim that you just knew it had to be them by the headline is wrong given that it was originally reported by ABC News and received dcent airtime on their morning news show. Granted, I have no idea if it was covered on Fox's morning program but I don't remember seeing it on the Today Show yesterday or today on NBC.

Another great example of shitty ineffective parenting. I mean, what parent in their right mind would consent to this? The school board should team up with the local police to start an investigation on that guy. Chances are, he's been in a few relationships with minors before this current one.
No matter how random things may appear, there's always a plan.

They are the real ones to blame here. What a bunch of spineless dorks these two were. Signing the consent because they were tired of fighting it. What a bunch of tools.

Replace "special liking" with "slap and tickle game" and I think we will have the real story. At the end of the day she's ugly as sin, he's no Don Juan, and she comes from suspect stock in her pussy parents.

The real losers are going to my parents as NC taxpayers when it comes time to support these yahoos and their brood of stupid children with Kool-Aid mustaches while mommy works a dead-end job and daddy drinks because he can't teach anymore on the welfare system.

I'm not aware of any legal prohibition on the publication of news stories that involve private marriages. Are you?

In B777236ER's British interpretation of American law through his smudged glasses I'm sure there is such a law. But in the real world there is no such thing. Don't tell him though as it will make him cry again.

Both B777236ER and Superfly, but when it comes to hating Fox News, you are allowed to disregard the fact that it is legal.  Yeah sure

My point is that Fox News targets stories like these to boost up the hits on their site.

But ABC and NBC are on the clear, right?

In other words, the traits of modern journalism. All news outlets, broadcast and print, do it.

Anyway, I just can't bring my self to understand what goes through these people's minds. Maybe the problem is that nothing is going through their minds.

I took a group of Cadets up to Santa Fe today for our Wing's Summer Encampment. They are just about the same age as the girl in question. Even though I'm closer to their age than that track coach was to his (now former) student, I can't even begin to imagine such a relationship with a girl that young.  no  To me, it crosses far too many ethical boundaries.

Can't this guy find a woman his own age? Perhaps he wanted someone he could mold according to his ideas? If that's the case, then I'm really, really sickened  vomit  (instead of just "sickened"  ill  ) by this story.
I lift things up and put them down.

Quoting 777236ER (Reply 20):
Ah ok, so in your mind a 16 year old can have her picture, name and school published in the national press for doing nothing more than legally marrying someone?

Once she marries she becomes an adult with the rights and obligations that occurs with being an adult, therefore publishing the information is not only fair game, but also a manner of public record, i.e. marriage license.

I don't understand why he can't wait 2 more years to marry her. By the time she reaches college, they'll be divorced.

This guy is a borderline pedophile, and/or completely irresponsible. End of the story.

Quoting 777236ER (Reply 17):
And anyway, this is a marriage. A newspaper has no right to publish details of a private marriage, let alone pictures and where the people work or go to school. To do so with a 16 year old child is disgraceful. There's potential for her to be bullied mercilessly at school, in which case I hope the news broadcasters foot the bill for relocation, earnings lost through lack of education and therapy.

If it doesn't violate a privacy law then yes I'm fine with it.

Even though you're publishing the name, school and photo of a sixteen year old for no other reason than she did something the law allows?

I'm aware that it's highly morally questionable to publish such intimate personal details of a sixteen year old girl. It's inappropriate to publish an adult's photo, place of work and name in trivial but potentially embarassing and personal circumstances, let alone those of a child.

You'd allow (inter)national media to publish such intimate personal details of your daughter? I hope you wouldn't.
