Nebraska Man Claims 13-Year-Old Girl He Allegedly Raped "Made A Move On Him"

There is more than a kernel of truth to the old saying “there are two sides to every story”. That said, the law is the law and an adult male must be considered as the responsible party in any kind of sexual encounter between him and a minor.

No excuses about who made the first move or relating to prior incidents are acceptable. The adult is responsible for making sure no sexual conduct of any kind occurs.

If a man feels he is being taken advantage of by a sexually aggressive minor, he should leave after documenting the situation as much as possible. It might be worth hiring an attorney to see if you should report the incident to law enforcement yourself to avoid serious problems down the road.

If you don't, you'll have nothing to support your claims of innocence. That's the situation one man finds himself in now; however, any proof he might have wouldn't matter, and he's been accused of some absolutely abhorrent behavior.

In a recent case in point, a Nebraska man who is facing charges of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old said that the female minor had "made a move" on him during an interview with law enforcement regarding the case.

Local jail records indicate that 33-year-old Tyron S. Stapleton has been charged with first-degree sexual assault of a child aged between 12 and 15.

A Douglas County court database shows that Stapleton's bond had been set at $27,000, while local Nebraska media sources had reported the bond amount as $24,000. Stapleton will need to pay 10% of the total amount to be released from jail.

Based on court documents referenced by local media sources, it seems that the victim reported to a Nebraska-based child abuse outreach project that Stapleton had forced her into sexual intercourse while living with the family some while ago. The girl is now 15 years old

According to the testimony described in the documents, the female minor victim alleges that she told Stapleton to stop several times during the encounter in North Omaha several years ago, but even when she told him it was hurting, he just replied "it's OK" and covered her mouth and continued to sexually assault her.

It should be noted that the court documents also state that Stapleton told police there was "more to the story" and said he remembers that he lived as a boarder at the house where the girl lived for around two months.

"If I was to come tell you that somebody made a move on me, who's going to believe me?" Stapleton allegedly told police, "The girl would follow me and follow me and follow me around."

Keep in mind that according to Nebraska law, Stapleton could be looking at a 20-year prison sentence if convicted of first-degree sexual assault of a child.
