NC man gets 50 years for MySpace rape

Statutory rape conviction gets man 50 years in prison:

Steven Lee Odom

Steven Lee Odom

Don’t worry folks. The crime took place in 2009. No one uses MySpace anymore.

Anyway, 26-year-old Steven Lee Odom was sentenced in a Rowan County, North Carolina, court recently to a minimum of 50 years for the statutory rape of a 13-year-old girl when Odom was 21. Creepily, Odom lived across the street from the girl and would watch her get off the school bus. He then began messaging the girl through MySpace and Facebook. That led to Odom having sex (child rape) with the girl.

So why such a long sentence? At the time of the crime Odom was already a registered sex offender. Odom had pleaded guilty to two counts of indecent liberties with a child in neighboring Stanly County. He only received probation for those charges.

A re-offending sex offender? I’m shocked and amazed since they usually tend to be such trustworthy people said no one ever.

Oh well, see you in 2064 if you’re lucky.

    You have to suspect criminal activity on the part of the the judges, who don’t hand out stiff prison sentences to sex offenders. They must empathize with the sex offenders they are judging.
