    GA - Six charged with raping 12-year-old

    Six men were arrested over the past 10 days and charged with raping a 12-year-old girl after answering Internet advertisements offering her for sex...

    The alleged rapes occurred last summer in the basement of William McLeece Caldwell's home on a quiet Duluth cul-del-sac. The girl often referred to Caldwell as "Uncle Mac"...

    Per the attorney of one of those arrested he "is an outstanding businessman with an impeccable career and character...." as well as a pervert. I graciously completed the sentence for the attorney.

    Someone was selling this young girl on the internet? I wonder if that was the guy she called "Uncle Mac?" I wonder how long the person had been advertising her on the internet before someone caught on? How horrible. Did this girl have parents and what are they like? How did she know this "Uncle Mac?" I wonder if her parents know him...I'll bet they do but might not have known what was going on. Wonder if he has a record as a pervert....probably.
    Can't wait to hear the rest of this story. This is such a young girl...I wonder if she was forced or went along with it? Either way it is a crime but I'm just wondering how this all came down. Wonder if this was MySpace again.

    In the link, Caldwells wife says her husband does belong in prison and she is going to divorce him. She also says that if this happened in her country of Iran the penalty would be death. I like that law in Iran!

    OB
    this is just my opinion, it may be wrong, user beware!

    Lost trust at heart of porn case
    Families celebrated holidays together

    By JEFFRY SCOTT
    The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
    Published on: 08/07/06
    The mother stayed on the verge of tears, her voice trembling, as she tried to speak Sunday afternoon about how her 12-year-old daughter became the victim of a Duluth man's Internet child porn scheme.

    "We trusted him," said the woman, whose name is being withheld by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution to protect the identity of her daughter because of the nature of the charges. "She has known him all her life. There was no reason not to trust him."

    What an absolutely horrible mess!

    For 2 years (I guess that started when the girl was 11, since she's 13 now) the mother of the 12-year-old would let her daughter go stay Fri-Sunday with Caldwell and his 17-year-old son. The daughter, she says, was friends (but "just friends") with the 17-year-old. Caldwell didn't pick up her daughter after she was dropped off at the mall, as mother says has been rumored--they picked her every Friday from her house. Mother says she trusted Caldwell, and apparently his friendly-to-11-year-olds son. WHAT was she thinking??!!!

    The 12-year-old was having sex in the basement of Caldwell's house with her 14-year-old boyfriend, and being videotaped. From there, it advanced, or rather, degraded, to pretending to be 18 and having sex with men Caldwell found by advertising on the internet.

    I repeat, what an absolutely horrible mess!

    I have said this before and I'll say it again. If a grown man wants to spend large amounts of time alone with your child, it should be a huge red flag.

    The mother just made this all too easy for this man.

    I couldn't find a booking photo of Wilbur McLeece Caldwell, and I think his photo should be more prominent in the news articles than these other 6. There may be victims who would recognize Caldwell and come forward, if they saw his picture.

    I think there is probably a lot more family dysfunction going on than has been discovered or exposed by the news articles.

    It would be a good thing if they would show his picture. I'll bet there are more victims.

    You're exactly right!!!!!!! The way I look at it is EVERYONE is a potential preditor. If there's no legitimate reason for an adult to be alone with one of my children, they aren't.
