    I'm very surprised they named the other two underage girls. Especially that they also report the faculty is associated with sexual abuse.

    I don't believe that AY or KE have admitted to a relationship of that nature.

    I'm not sure what you mean? Regardless if they admitted anything or not, I am saying the media named the two other underage girls that she was with. And naming underage children should be a no no.

    They were named because they were originally missing. It's common to report minors names when they are missing. Also reporting minors names is allowed under the First Amendment.

    Here in TX, you have 24 hours to turn a runaway over to LE. I am pretty sure that there is something similar in PA.

    Kevin Esterly and Allentown teen he fled to Mexico with told police their relationship was innocent

    "The 16-year-old told investigators she bought her own ticket to Cancun because she was running away from home. When she revealed her plans to Esterly, who had already been warned by Allentown police to stay away from the teen, he bought his own plane ticket and they flew off together March 5, Chief Deputy District Attorney Matthew Falk said.

    The 46-year-old Esterly told authorities he went with Yu to protect her, while Yu told investigators he was like a father to her, Falk said.

    “She emphatically denied any sexual relationship with him,” he said. “And she said she was planning on going there anyway.”


    yeah right.... But she stuck to her story and the plead deal was reached.


    "Dantos, who will sentence Esterly on Dec. 10, did not find Esterly’s explanations believable.

    “If it is as innocent as you want us to believe, why didn’t you clear that with her mother?” Dantos asked about going to Mexico with Yu. “Why did you not stay away from her when police told you?

    “When you say Amy is like one of your children, that’s not true, is it?” Dantos continued. “You didn’t take them out of the country. You didn’t take them out of school secretly. I’m fairly certain you know where I’m going with this.”

    Esterly told the judge that he wished he could fix everything.

    Dantos said she wants Esterly to think about his responses the next time they see each other for sentencing."

    So he will not have to register as a sex offender and a risk to children I'm assuming?

    Ugh ugh ugh. What a horrible outcome from every aspect. No justice, and little hope that A.Y. will get real help. So sad.

    You would think the TC case would have educated judges and juries on how serious this kind of crime is, but apparantly they didn't pay attention. For shame.

    That would seem to be correct. The lack of remorse is what gets me.

    I do not believe so (shaking my head).

    Here is the charge Esterly has pleaded guilty to:

    “Sec. 6301. Corruption of minors.
    (a) Offense defined.--
    (1) (i) Except as provided in subparagraph (ii), whoever, being of the age of 18 years and upwards, by any act corrupts or tends to corrupt the morals of any minor less than 18 years of age, or who aids, abets, entices or encourages any such minor in the commission of any crime, or who knowingly assists or encourages such minor in violating his or her parole or any order of court, commits a misdemeanor of the first degree.”
    Title 18

    And it isn’t included in the list of the offenses that currently require registration as a sex offender under PA law:

    And lack of admitting wrong doing.

    I wonder if it's not too late for the judge to throw out the plea deal.

    Esterly admitted Thursday to a charge of corruption of minors, a first-degree misdemeanor that can land him behind bars for up to five years. As part of the guilty plea, two felony charges against him were withdrawn, including one that would have required him to register as a sex offender for 15 years.

    Kevin Esterly and Allentown teen he fled to Mexico with told police their relationship was innocent

    So you take someone else's child across the border to another country, and only face 5 years?!?! This is awful. Maybe prosecution should wait for the victim to receive counseling, and come to terms with what happened to her so she can then testify against him. I don't think it's been long enough time for her to realize she was taken advantage of. IMO, she's young, feels like she's in love, but we as adults know he is in the wrong. With time, and growth, I think she'll eventually see how wrong this was as well.

    So sad. If only given 5 yrs, and if he gets time off for time already served or good behavior, he could be out very soon.
