Toby Studabaker, did he do anything wrong?Watch
HE DID DO SOMETHING WRONG! He knew shev was 12, i knew it. I used to talk to him, he used to tell me about shevaun. He even asked to meet me once knowing how old i was! (btw im 13). He is a jerk and derserves to die.
He isn't charged with having sex ith her or anything, just abducting her.
this story has just died - whatever happened to Toby Studabaker? Is he being held in the UK?
She then lied to her parents and jetted off across the world with him, where he then most likely discovered the truth and panicked. He got her to write some sort of affidavit to ensure people knew he didn't have sex with her or touch her up, or whatever, and sent her home before turning himself in at the embassy (what anybody with half a brain would do in that situation - who would go to the local police when you can get help from your own country especially when you are sh***ing yourself).
The internet can be a dangerous thing in the wrong hands, in that children like this girl with immature little fantasies can, as we see here, get other people in a lot of trouble.
At the end of the day, she has been granted anonymity by the courts, and can go on with her life. He is in jail in the UK, has now probably lost his job, his home, and any chance of a future in Christian Ministry, which is I believe was his vocation, and will most likely end up with some kind of punishment. That is, unless she stands up and tells the truth, which she probably won't because it will make everyone concerned (police, parents, etc) look like fools.
Toby Studabaker will be a scapegoat for the moronic parenting skills of the girl's parents who knew nothing of their 12 yr old daughter's life, including the fact she led a double life as a 19 year old who told at least this man she would marry him and have his babies, and the crappy corrupt police who do whatever to make sure he gets what they have coming for him.
NO her parents did not supervise her time online well. The school did not supervise her well either. ( many e-mails came from her school) And I admit I did not watch my own pewter very well.
Yes this young kid bought her own plane tickets ( how as she was a kid? ) Yes Toby did go into other countries with her. I know that when Toby gets upset he does not think clearly. Am I excusing what he did? NO. What he did was wrong. He was still a Marine when he met her in England ( he was never in the Army)
As of today, Toby pled guilty in a court of law. I am glad he finaly stepped up to the plate and took responsibality for his actions. I hold Toby, Shev and her parents and school responsible for all of this. IF people ( me included ) would of watched their computers better this could of been caught early and stopped. I am glad Shev is safe at home with her family.
She isn't to blame - she's just an inexperienced child. He was the adult predator.
No I do not condone what THEY did. Wrong is wrong no matter what your age is.
and before who ever blamed te parents its' not their fault im pretty sure they didnt instill those types of morals and ideas in her head.
personally i think it's pretty sick considering their ages. In their own minds they probabaly didn't think there was anything wrong (morally) and didn't care. Does anyone know these people personally?
