20-year-old Hulices Hernandez-Ruiz of Kent City, Michigan is accused of raping a 12-year-old girl that he met through Snapchat. Local police state that Hernandez -Ruiz “engaged in at least one sexual penetration act” with the victim in his car. Hernandez-Ruiz has been charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct which could put him in prison for life. He was busted after the girl’s mother checked the girl’s phone.
Once again I feel the need to remind parents that 12-year-olds have no business being on Snapchat. Even though Snapchat’s terms of service say that a user can be 13-years-old, I personally wouldn’t allow a child to be on Snapchat until they were 18. You may trust your child but you can’t trust all the creepers out there looking to prey on your kids through social media.
