Georgia man sentenced to prison for relationship with Maryland teen

A 67-year-old Georgia man was sentenced to about 10 years in prison in connection with a sexual relationship he had with a Maryland teenager, federal authorities said.

Mack Gordon Harris, of Social Circle, Ga., was convicted in federal court in Richmond of transporting a minor for illegal sexual activity, officials said.

According to court papers, in summer 2005 Harris began using a Christian online chat room to communicate with a 15-year-old Maryland girl. Harris exposed himself to the girl using a webcam, authorities said.


Harris visited the girl around the time she turned 16, the age of sexual consent in Maryland, and they had sex, according to court documents. In December 2005, he picked up the girl in Maryland to take her to his home in Georgia, telling her not to speak with anyone on the way and, if she did, to say she was 25.

On the way they stayed in a hotel in Virginia, where the age of consent is 18, and had sex, authorities said.

U.S. District Court Judge James R. Spencer sentenced Harris to 121 months in prison. He also ordered Harris to serve10 years of supervised release following his prison term, and to register as a sex offender

First, let's give credit to any 67-year-old man who's capable of sex -- with anyone!

Next, it's almost obvious that the "victim" was at least a partially-willing rapee. She must have seen something she liked on that Webcam.

Wow, kinkysr, you are an idiot and probably need a little schooling in grooming and manipulative behaviors of sexual predators..
