What makes you sick is calling this girl a whore and attacking her on things you can clearly tell from the article she is innocent of.
This was not consensual sex. the girl has suffered emotional trauma and is afraid of him. 4 counts does not mean they had sex for times or that he raped her 4 times. The girl went to the police with her mother, it doesn't say her mother went to the police by herself.
Why are you so quick to attack this girl, first by calling her greedy when she was not the one to request child support, and doesn't even want it, and then to call her a whore an blame her?
I find it extremely disturbing,

So the man was charged with statutory rape, maybe the girls parents were the ones to press charges. Maybe the girl loved this man and is the reason she didn't abort. If the girl gives it the thumbs up then by all means should the father be able to see his kid. Why do we rely on others so heavily to live our own life? It boggles my mind peoples rationality.
Sexual intercourse by an adult with a person below a statutorily designated age.
The criminal offense of statutory rape is committed when an adult sexually penetrates a person who, under the law, is incapable of consenting to sex. Minors and physically and mentally incapacitated persons are deemed incapable of consenting to sex under rape statutes in all states. These persons are considered deserving of special protection because they are especially vulnerable due to their youth or condition.
Most legislatures include statutory rape provisions in statutes that punish a number of different types of sexual assault. Statutory rape is different from other types of rape in that force and lack of consent are not necessary for conviction. A defendant may be convicted of statutory rape even if the complainant explicitly consented to the sexual contact and no force was used by the actor. By contrast, other rape generally occurs when a person overcomes another person by force and without the person's consent.
The man, who the victim knew from church and who was the boyfriend of her friend’s older sister, pleaded guilty to statutory rape in Norfolk Superior Court last year.

If the child was raped (4 times in the same 24 hours isn't impossible for a 19yr old) then she has enough emotional scarring. Handing her baby to the felon once a month, every other holiday, and expect timely child support for 18 years seems improbable.
If his conviction is as stands, he's not man enough to follow thru. This is his way of maintaining control of the situation. Her lawyer will file again.
He's affecting two lives. He didn't even give them the opportunity to just make choices. Now they have to heal.
"She got raped at 14. She decided to keep her baby. And now she has to hand her baby over for a visit with her rapist?" the victim's mother said.
The teen mother, who still suffers from severe anxiety and depression, says she's terrified at the thought of having to face the man who raped and impregnated her to arrange for visitation rights.
"He threatened me. He told me that he could make my life upside down, and I wouldn't have anybody and he would pin it all on me. So I was scared," she told FOX Undercover reporter Mike Beaudet.
It happened when she was in eighth grade, just 14-years-old. He was a 20-year-old man she knew from her church, the boyfriend of her friend's older sister.
