62-year-old James Ledbetter was arrested Friday night and charged with Solicitation of Aggravated Statutory Rape.

    I feel the parents of these underage social networking teens should be held accountable for the safety of their childred. Parents feel as soon as a child learns to dial a number they should get a cellphone. There is a problem with teens and social network. Someone should take a close look at this growing problem.
