(Memphis) A 34-year-old Memphis man is behind bars accused of raping three runaway teens who moved into his apartment.

Police say they got a tip the 15-year-old runaway was at Mario Hampton’s Whitehaven apartment.

Officers say when they got there they found the 15-year-old as well as two sisters ages 16 and 17.

They say Hampton admitted to having sex with the girls for money and said one of the girls may have recorded it on her cell phone.

Hampton’s family members, though, say he may be the one who was taken advantage of.

They say Hampton only has the mental capacity of a teenager himself and thought the girls were much older.

“One girl presented herself as 18 and another presented her age as 19,”  Said Elbert Warren, Hampton’s brother.

Hampton’s brother says if his brother knew the girls were all underage he wouldn’t have allowed them into his home.

Hampton is facing three counts of aggravated statutory rape and being held on $50,000 bond.

    This only occurs in cities where blacks are the majority, and the city leaders are black.

      Are you really this dumb? @Misson1 you bring the suspects ethnicity into this and claim only blacks do such things? How about rhe Caucasian guy who was sentenced to 25yrs here in Shelby Co for bonking his sister since she was 7yrs old and making his 17yr bro particpate? Or the optometrist. Sharing kiddie porn? You are THE true danger to the community

        How about the 11,000 blacks killed by other blacks in the year during the Trayvon trial? Won’t address that will you, and neither will the naptastic duo of Sharpton and Jackson.

      Black men are really good at doing the most disgusting crimes imaginable. They love to dig into the sewer and make people puke with what they do. They love filth.
