    Finally after 100’s of years someone took an interest in our runaway problem. Yeah fear of pedophelia. It finally accomplished something.

    This is predatory criminal sexual conduct and Interstate Sexual Trafficking. Pedophiles are attracted to children under the age of 10. A teenager is between the ages of 13-17. In order to take this girl out of state there would need to be elements of coercion: physical and, substance induced. Note the person was also arrested with another adult female.
