    Well, if it does turn out that she told someone at her school and they did not report it, then they are in some serious legal trouble.
    As far as the charges go, if the Assistant US Attorney is planning on charging BR with taking a minor across state lines for sexual purposes, then I imagine she has good reason to think he is guilty. Imo

    Datchery, I also think BDR's actions are not of a misguided good Samaritan.
    Why keep SLP for weeks, without reporting her case, and the video to authorities?
    Surely he didn't think, keeping SLP locked up, was to her benefit.
    When we learn, if we ever will, of SLP's version, we may have a clearer picture.

    The fact SLP, and her siblings are safe, and receiving counseling is most promising.
    Hope Justice comes down hard, on those that harmed SLP.
    Things will only improve for SLP and her siblings.
    MOO.

    On Nancy Grace's show about SP, it was said that SP was in school in Georgia up until the time of her family's move. SP and her family moved to Madisonville, Tennessee in late December 2018.

    SP was enrolled to go to school in Madisonville, TN. Schools there were back in session on January 8th, but SP had not been in attendance and her family claimed she was being homeschooled. Her parents didn't give any explanation for why she was being homeschooled instead of going to the Tennessee school in which she was enrolled. She disappeared from her home on Jan. 13, so she had missed the first week back to school in the new year.

    Imo as a adopted child. RP is her dad my dad is not a peeve but if he were even just called constantly “adoptive dad” it would be a slap in the face. He’s my dad. The other guy who’s genes i share is bio dad. If there was a adoption this peeve sadly is her dad. I can’t call him step dad he’s dad he raised he’s scum yes but still dad. Bio dad is just that bio dad. Imo

    One of the original questions, however, was whether this would count as incest since he is not the biological father.

    Right. It's weird that he reached out to a 14-year-old girl and encouraged her to record a video of her getting raped. Him playing games on Roblox is the least of his problems. There are quite a few games on there that adults find enjoyable.

    In almost every disappearance case, human trafficking comes up.The majority of those cases don't fit within the parameters of trafficking. THIS one, however, does. It is rare, almost unheard of, for traffickers to kidnap women in the US who are walking to their car, shopping in a store, etc. Most of the children and young women who are trafficked are done so by their own family members. The kids who are preyed on by others are low-risk kids: runaways, homeless, abused, foster care, someone falling through the cracks, etc. Traffickers look for those girls and young women who are vulnerable and easier to manipulate. They don't have to kidnap young women off the street. Unfortunately, there are already a lot of low-risk (for the traffickers) girls out there to choose from. Someone like SLP who was desperate for an adult to step in and help her and willing to run away from home with a strange man to get that help. It's good that she was found. Many aren't.

    But he is her step-dad, adoptive dad, (and personally I hate typing the word “dad” for this ***. He’s no dad. I prefer the distinction, and I appreciate knowing that information. I think it’s important.

    I am glad your dad was a good dad :)

    People keep wondering if she told a teacher, but I believe that is unlikely because they are mandatory reporters. What I do think is that it’s possible SLP began to confide in a friend and before word reached an adult, the parents found out.

    I once reported child neglect on a neighbor. Within a few months they moved. I prayed that new neighbors would be observant. But the reality is that they likely just kept moving if anyone noticed anything off.

    And the lack of communications between counties where social services are concerned is bad enough. Moving to another state was basically like resetting for the family. There are electronic files and databases that CPS can look into, but with poor budgets and overworked staff, the reports don't always get picked up in the new place until something happens there.

    But do they start talking to UNDER-AGE GIRLS when they're playing these games then?

    It's like anything else-there are those who play the games and aren't creepy pedophiles and there are those who are. These predators are not just limited to Roblox.

    I've just been reading this thread for updates and not really posting much lately but I wanted to weigh in on mandated reporters. I was a young teacher just starting out about the time the Lisa Steinberg case was making news and changing policies. I left teaching fairly early to raise my own family and never went back, so I'm not up on any changes to the laws over the years. The state I was in at that time only required that I, as a mandated reporter, make a report to my immediate superior. Where it went after that was up to him. I actually had a situation that he was uninterested in so I filed my report with his superior instead. (There was a past history of abuse in that family.) I share this to say that I was in no way required (back then...has it changed?) to report it to authorities. In fact, my superior was adamant that I let my situation go. It still riles me up all these years later.

    Question: has this changed and does it vary much state to state?

    Dear Quill,

    Thank you so much for your post.

    Your great compassion for children certainly motivated you to use your courage and integrity to follow through on this. You are a remarkable person for doing that.

    Oh how I wish everyone responded to a child's safety and welfare as you did.

    I'm so glad you are on this thread, sharing your insight and compassion. Greatly appreciated!

    The fact that he watched and kept the tape tells me he had no interest in helping her. And why hide her from the police? I’m sure he manipulated her into being afraid to trust anyone but him - which probably wasn’t too difficult since she’d already been failed by so many.

    And just a general thought: when a parent refuses to believe a child who tells them they’re being abused, wouldn’t that “lie” in itself be of concern?? IF a child did make up something so terrible, there would have to be some kind of reason. And with a very young child, how would they even have the knowledge to make it up?

    I can’t speak for TN and GA, but here in NC we are ALL mandated reporters and are supposed to call the appropriate authorities if we see or suspect abuse.

    I realize I am stepping into this lively back and forth, but how would BDR know whether he was talking to a middle aged man, child (boy or girl) or an undercover policeman for that matter in the anonymity of this internet game of Roblox? Certainly, at least at first he would have no idea who he was playing against, would he? How can we assume he was using this game exclusively for the means of speaking to young girls?

    You don't know that. SP could have been the only one. Wait for the outcome.
