Man is accused of crossing state line for sex with teen:
Man accused of taking Hammond girl to Illinois for sex:
Carey Ray, aka Carey West, aka Carey Tyrone-West, (age unknown, but we’ll get to that) has been arrested for allegedly taking a 14-year-old special education girl to Illinois for ‘sex’. (We’ll get to that too.)
Ray allegedly met the girl on MeetMe and the pair exchanged hundreds of texts. The girl’s mom finally discovered one of the texts and forbade her from meeting Ray. The girl sent a text back to Ray saying she couldn’t see him because “You know everything. I am 14.”
Apparently, that wasn’t enough to stop Ray because 3 days later he picked the girl up and took her to a motel in Illinois. Here’s what happened according to one of the articles…
Ray then gave her marijuana and alcohol. After about an hour, he started to undress her. When she objected, he told her he had paid for the room and wanted to use it. He then held her down and had sex with her without a condom, despite the girl trying to fight him off, the affidavit claims.
Held her down and ‘had sex’ huh? After she said no? Last time I checked that meets the definition of rape not ‘had sex’. Neither article mentions the word rape. When as a society we keep referring to rape, or in this case child rape, as having sex it makes the act of rape seem more acceptable by our culture. Words matter.
Also, it doesn’t matter what his age is. From 18 to 80 it’s illegal to have sex with a 14-year-old girl. If he’s 16 or 17 he raped a girl, allegedly, which is still against the law. And for those people who say “Well she went with the guy to a motel what did she think would happen?”, first you’re an idiot, secondly the girl is mentally challenged by all accounts, third the girl supposedly said no, if it doesn’t end there it’s rape, lastly you’re an idiot.
