23-years old? That would make him first year out of college. Somewhat relieved his anti-social tendencies surfaced so young. Give him his day in court, sack and punish him if found guilty. Not the first, won't be the last.

Glad that they caught him, but now one has to wonder what he has been doing to the others i.e. the kids. or single mom's during parent teacher meetings in the home but they didn't report anything for shame and embarrassment. Despite the woman's age, it just shouldn't have happened to her.
