    William Atwood Sr., 45, was charged Wednesday with multiple felonies in connection with the case.

    Authorities say Atwood lured Justin Moore to his home, ordered him to strip down to his boxer shorts, and tied him up and tased him with a stun gun before turning him over to a sheriff's deputy.


    You wouldn't want me on that jury if you are the prosecution. I'd let him go free and clear. (the father)

    Sick bastard. And what is a 23 year old doing with an underage 17 year old?

    Are we as a society going to crack down on "sexting" with our children or not?

    My favorite part:

    Atwood told Moore he had connections with the Pechanga tribe and was going to have him buried on the reservation, court records say.


    Prosecutors declined to charge Moore in connection with the photo for lack of evidence, said district attorney's spokesman John Hall.

    What kind of crap is that? The phone company will have the evidence even if the phones are wiped.

    It sounds like the Dad got a tad overzealous and may be unstable himself. The age of consent in CA is still 18, so the Dad can make a complaint if the daughter was having sex with the man.

    And if there is no evidence of the original crime -- then maybe there was no crime. The phone company might archive pix messages, but for how long?

    As a father of two daughters, I understand where the Dad was coming from, but it seems like overkill.

    Unstable sounds like an understatement; frankly the whole incident makes me a tad suspicious about the dad's motivations.
    Were it up to me, the family would be investigated.

    Oh, there are obviously limits. And technically what this guy did would be against Cali law because she was under 18. But six years with the younger person being 17 hardly qualifies as "sick" to me. Again, were she 13 or 14 I'd be a lot more furious. Or if he were 18 or 19, I'd be a lot less bothered.

    Age of consent laws are tough - because technically any 17 year old boy sleeping with a 16 year old girl is committing a crime in California. But I don't think they deserve to be on the registry for life as a sex offender.

    What would YOUR reaction have been had this been YOUR daughter?

    In asking this question of you or indeed any father who loves his children, i am hopeful that an honest reply will be given.

    Presumably because 17 is below the legal age of consent.
    In certain countries this can be as low as 9 years of age. Not saying it is right, just pointing out a fact.

    I know I wouldn't have tazed the guy.

    I also would have hoped that I would have had a good enough relationship with my daughter that she wouldn't be dating someone without my knowledge or giving her number out to 23-year-olds.

    Technically, both are guilty.

    I can understand the father's anger, but he shouldn't have acted upon it. He didn't have the right to taser the 23 year old. He should have just told the police and filed any charges that he could. Vigilante justice is disgusting. The father deserves jail time. Who knows? Maybe the father and the 23 year old could be cell mates.

    The police are not filing charges against the 23-year-old, due to lack of physical evidence (despite the fact that he's confessed).
    Apparently, they feel he's been through enough.

    if I were him I'd move away and change my name before that psychopath gets out of the pokey.
