A Willard man was arrested without incident at his home Sunday on two sex-related charges.

Marcus Hampton, 26, of 115 Crestwood Drive, is charged with sexual battery and contributing to the unruliness or delinquency of a minor. The Willard Police Department started its investigation between late Saturday and early Sunday.

Chief Mark Holden said suspected victim is a 17-year-old, but he declined to disclose the person's gender.

"It's not a local resident," Holden said. "The victim's father is upset about it. We are trying to protect the identity of the victim at this point."

Hampton has no previous criminal record.

"I don't think we have anything on him," Holden said.

So was this a rape or consensual sex that daddy didn't approve of? The article leaves me a bit confused.

Oh, so she is a victim? So if her 18th birthday is in two weeks & it happened then, it would be ok? Still have to obey the law I guess.

Moderators have removed this comment because it contained Remarks that discriminate based on age, race, religion, disability, etc..

I actually agree with you on this one. That is exactly the thought that ran through my mind. I didn't say it because then every do gooder would have told me how insensitive I was being. I think this is exactly the situation, daddy's little "princess" sleeps with a black man and is pissed, so now he pushes for sexual assault charges against the man. Daddy should be the one thrown in jail if this is the case. Face it dad, your daughter is only a princess in your eyes.

there had to be alcohol or some other factor involved because in the state of ohio it is not a sex offense to have consensual sex with a person 16 years of age or older. yes 16 is the age of consent in ohio.. the 4 years or older law only applies if the other person is under 16. look it up in the ohio revised code.

It's the "dad" factor. Plain and simple!

I agree with you man

here's a novel idea why don't the black guys go after the black girls for a change?

believe it

Where does it say the girl is white? Everyone is just assuming that on here. Wow.

that's how it works..

If the girl were black this would not be a story!

Why don't the white girls go after the white guys for a change?

starryeyes83

good point- only the opposite

Reading all the comments above just lowered my IQ....thanks.

deertracker

Wow, that would make you about -50. Sounds about right for you!

This is bull i no marcus and he would never do anything like this its all race crimes

Mr. Touchdown

Although I'd hate to have a daughter getting nailed by a black dude...This is a good kid! Not anything like the pieces of trash in here daily for drugs & stealing.Good luck Marcus!

deertracker

Unfortunately, kids do what they want to do and most parents have no say!

Sitting In The ...

Did anyone else read the part where it stated the victim's sex wasn't disclosed?

Willard 3

shut the hell up man he aint like that

kURTje

Small town small minds. Wait & see.

Sitting In The....Yes I read that too!!! What the heck??

Yall Make Me Sick

It sounds like its not even a girl! Age is more than a number & it could depend on how many years in prison you could get!

I have to agree, it "sounds" like race is the issues here more than age. I also have to agree I read the part about the gender not being disclosed. That could mean anything though. We all know how this "journalist" will just write things to sell a story. I don't think he even knows what a police report is, or how to obtain one. I could see if it was a male victim the father being just as upset. Race and maybe gender is the factor here, not age. Just goes to show where the mentally if the WPD is. If we can all see thru the b%llsh!t, then why can't they?

deertracker

Race is the only issue. She's 17.

believe it

The charges have been dropped.

If I were Marcus I would sue for defamation.

Hereswhatithink

I would hope if charges were dropped, they would go after the "mad dad". He was still put in the media, his name smeared, jail time etc.

HBK

Yes, this kid needs to get something out of this. Not only from the WPD, but this joke of a paper too. This young man will be shadowed by the biased reporting of Cary Ashby. If he trying to get a job, or get into school all his would-be employer has to do is type his name into Google and this story is going to popup and red flag him, prob for life. Even if he would get a chance to explain himself, who is going to believe him? I would love to see a slander lawsuit filed against this paper, it might open up peoples eyes for once. You can't always believe what you read, especially in this paper. Shame on you Ashby for ruining this kids life!!!!!
