@Sandwulf, Statutory sexual seduction aka statutory rape is a person 18 years of age or older committing sexual acts with a person under the age of 16. Even though it is consensual, the minor is considered too young to consent to any sexual act therefor making it a crime.

Sorry to sound a little dumb here. What do they mean by sexual seduction? Did he drug them or something? Then attempt to get them to do in appropriate acts or something? Is this action illegal against grown women too? Just had to ask. Thanks.

I was commenting on a mug shot, not being a vigilante or condoning inmate violence. Seems we be in the good ol' boy daze again- it is the Dept. of Corrections, not Violations

@Kramer LOL I have to agree scum that look like this would do what he is accused of to a 16 year old child. As they scare away any sane person----- He should use the new alias "Michael Arthur Up The Parrish" in jail. His kind get what they deserve if found guilty when in jail.
