The story was troubling when Harlan was just accused of having sex with a 12 year old girl.
It is even more disturbing now to know that someone (Harlan is innocent until proven guilty) was having unprotected sex with a 12 year old and got her pregnant.
The pregnancy is how the parents found out the 12 year old was having sex. The pregnancy was terminated back in July.
As you can imagine family and friends are just in shocked about the situation.
Holder, who knows Harlan and the family of the 12-year-old, added: ‘It’s traumatic for what’s happened for her. For both parties involved it’s pretty hard.’
Another local, Wayne McWright, called the news ‘alarming’. ‘It’s a tragedy more so for the young girl,’ he said. ‘Then also my heart goes out to the young fellow, too, because somehow he got off track. Young people sometimes do foolish things.’
Foolish is probably an understatement.
The 12 year old girl was having sexual relationships with several older boys who have also been arrested, no one can be certain who was the father.
Please watch your children this is sad and disturbing on all levels.
