It's Florida. He might as well just voluntarily go to jail for 25 years.
What is it with weathermen? A married one copped a male friend of mine when we were in college. Totally freaked out my friend.
Shit. I know this guy.
I was about to say the same thing, R2. There appear to be a large contingent of gay weathermen out there. And weatherwomen who can't keep their tits in their blouses on air.
Another weather fairy caught diddling teens. He can share the cell with another Florida weather fairy, Bill "one ball" Kamal. He may be out of jail now., though.
Should he not, R1?
The victims were male, and as we know, Americans don't recognize male victims of sexual assault. He'll likely get off with community service while DL and all of the American media chuckles with jokes over the teenage boys... because, ya know, males can just shrug it off.
I had sex with older men (20s) when I was 17. Probably some the same age as this guy. Do I wish any of them had been prosecuted.
OF COURSE THE FUCK NOT.
I'm with r7 on this one. I'm not sure of the situation here, but... I was a wild kid, sure. But the 20-40 year old I was having sex with at 17 were in no way predators or abusing me.
Sez you R8. Your Ma would see things differently.
[quote] Former Florida TV Weatherman
On trial for sex with teenage guys.
This would explain his obsession with El Niños.
Jesus, you managed a tilde with an American keyboard, but couldn't use the plural article?
"The charges stem from separate and multiple encounters Lopicola is accused of having with two teenagers between August 2010 and April 2011"
I don't understand this concept of having underage consensual sex, then a few years later going after the older partner. Has it plagued their little brains night + day ever since? If it's not just for money, what's the point?
He's not bad looking, so he's innocent.
Okay, having sex with a minor is wrong wrong wrong. We all know that. However, he met these guys on Craigs List. That means either they put up ads on their own or they answered an ad he put up. Either way, its not like he was abducting kids off the street and raping them.
Did he do wrong? Yes. Should he be punished? Yes. Should the punishment be as harsh as what we would give someone who violently rapes a child? No.
Kind of hot. But his ass will get a lot of action in prison!
From the link at R15:
[quote]Lopicola took the stand, telling the panel that a series of graphic text messages and a few phone sex sessions between he and the 15-year-old
mothers need to stay out of their teenage sons' sex lives, this is ridiculous. If a 16 year old boy wants to go balls deep into his school teacher, female or male, he should be allowed to, even encouraged to. And nobody should going to jail for this CONSENSUAL act!
20 years in jail? this is outrageous
Kids are growing up a lot faster these days, and they know exactly what they're doing. The age of consent needs to reflect that. A boy at 17 is quite aware of what he wants.
R21, But the adults also KNOW exactly what they're doing and it's consequences. With all the easy sex out here, it shouldn't prove to be all that difficult to stay away from underage poon and/or peen.
Big EYE-talian cawk!
How is it illegal to have sexual contact with a 17 year old? I thought 16 was the age of consent in most of the country.
Regardless of what anyone's opinion is of the maturity level of anyone under the age of consent and what THEY want, there are laws. Good or bad, whether you agree with them or not. And all one has to do is troll for people OVER the age of consent. Easy peasy. Most people stay out of prison by, you know, doing that.
It might be more forgivable if there were a situation ONE time with a guy who had a fake I.D. and who lied to the perp. That would be one thing. More than once? Guilty. That is just reckless behavior.
[quote]It's Florida. He might as well just voluntarily go to jail for 25 years.
...and he's white!
If he liked twinks and younger guys, he should have followed the law and went with guys 18 and older.
I would go one step further. If he meets a guy, and unsure about age. Only meet them at the baths. You have to show ID and be 18 and older to get in.
seriously?? he is a gay teen's wet dream. I know when I was 16 I was cruising guys in the locker room at my gym. I would have fucked the shit out of him..
[quote]he should have followed the law and went
I wish I had a stud like that around when I was 15.
If they had been girls, all he would have gotten was a slap on the wrist.
Not that I condone pedophilia, but what makes 18 such a great choice for the age of consent? Why does one suddenly become sexually mature upon his or her 18th birthday?
16 is too damn young for "age of consent"..it should be 18 in all states
The idea that a 50yo can fuck somebody just barely through puberty is just unreal and unreasonable to me.
I know it's the law, I get that, but when I was 17 I knew what I wanted and I would have been GAGGING for his cock. I didn't all of a sudden become "mature" when I hit 18.
Fifteen is too young though. It's not like maturing from 25-27 or 37-38...your body and mind and maturity level change a LOT between 15 and 17.
What about a 17 year-old and an 18 year-old, R47. Should they also be looked upon with disdain?
If you want to look at just sexual maturity..hell,even some 12 and 13yos are sexually matuere.
18 is the appropriate age because it is usually concurrent with high school graduation,voting rights,military service eligibility and the commencement of a college career.
The 16yo age of consent laws must be a dream for pederasts and pervs.
No R49...and that's why the Romeo & Juliet laws exist...they just need to be applied to gay teens as well.
16 is still preferable to what TLPG wants, R50. They think the age of consent should be eight.
R52. Can't you read asshole?
What part of "18 is the appropriate age because it is usually concurrent with high school graduation,voting rights,military service eligibility and the commencement of a college career." don't you understand?
Lots of bullshit on this thread. Some 15 year-olds are much more mature than 18. Some 20 y/o are less mature than some 16. It all depends.
Personally, I had sex with a grown man at the age of 14 and never regretted.
[quote] When the mother of the 17-year-old caught Lopicola hiding in her son’s shower.
This being Florida, he should thank his stars he wasn't shot.
The teens mom found him hiding in the shower behind the shower curtain!
I don't know how a buff weatherman got in my shower, mom honest! Maybe he saw a hurricane forming there!
Here's video of the stud getting arrested, Too much fake tan and a 40 something guy in ripped jeans is a crime of itself.
About R57's clip,
How can someone not qualify for a public defender? Isn't every accused guaranteed representation?
That just means he has enough money to pay for his own lawyer, so the state doesn't have to provide him one.
The manner in which it was stated--as if he were being deprived--puzzled me.
Was he naked?
Cowardice is never a good look.
If this guy had shown me any desire, affection, or kindness when I was 16, my life would be far better than it was.
I would have a hard time counting up all of the gay weathermen and news anchors I've fucked in my life. I have no idea why they are attracted to those positions because the pay is total shit unless you are in NYC or a major market like that.
Mother, may I sleep with the weather man?
Justice is always served in Florida
People here don't even know the definition of pedophilia.
[quote]16 is too damn young for "age of consent"..it should be 18 in all states
WON'T SOMEBODY PLEASE THINK OF THE CHILDREN????!!!!!!!!!
How fucking stupid is it to go to the kids house? Jesus you are 43 ..you should have your own place.....
When I was 16-17 hell my folks were lucky to see me at all during the daytime. They both worked..
they should test this fuck for hiv though since he was all about barebacking young kids.
He has not aged well. I lived in the Palm Beach area from 2000-2005 and thought Rob Lopicola was kind of hot.
