He's cute, but don't get your hopes up -- he likes 'em young.
The Livingston County Daily Press & Argus reports:
A Jackson County man pleaded guilty to felony charges resulting from having sexual contact with a Livingston County teenager he met on an app for men.One of the other men charged, Cody Hunter Swatling, is only 18 and is awfully HANDSOME, too.
John Joseph Gasiorek III, 20, of Brooklyn pleaded guilty as charged to third-degree and fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct as well as accosting a child for immoral purposes and using a computer to commit the crime, according to 44th Circuit Court records.
Gasiorek is seeking sentencing under the state’s Holmes Youthful Trainee Act, which means he would have no public criminal record if he successfully completes probation. Sentencing is Nov. 19.
Police said Gasiorek met a then-15-year-old Brighton boy on Grindr, which describes itself as a “gay iPhone app.”
The encounters occurred in January and were reported by a family member of the now-16-year-old complainant, who resides in the Brighton area. How the relative learned what happened was not disclosed.
Police said Gasiorek picked up the complainant and went to undisclosed locations to have sex.
Three other men are also charged with meeting and having sexual contact with the same complainant in unrelated incidents.
A three- or five-year age difference isn't much, though, especially if the kid lied on Grindr. My guess is the boy's parents are freaked out and are making this into more of an issue than it needs to be, whereas 15-year-old girls date 18-year-olds all the time.
