‘I Was Accused Of A Victimless Crime, And I Should Never Have Been Charged As A Felon,’ Says Young Man
Jace says three years ago, he went online to find a woman to “hook up” with. He claims the website made you confirm that you were 18 years old, and he says he found a gamer girl that he wanted to play games with.
“They said that they were 13. I didn’t believe it,” Jace says. “The picture that I was sent was that of a 24-year-old woman, and in my head, it clicked that I was dealing with an adult that just enjoyed role playing as a younger person.”
