Sleepover Dad Gets 11-Year-Old Pregnant

461

Michael LacyThe creep accused of getting an 11-year-old pregnant wants a court to believe he thought it was his wife the whole time.

And if you don't think this story could get worse -- or more bizarre -- just wait.

The girl was a friend of Michael Lacy's daughter. She was in the house for a sleepover.

West Virginia TV station WSAZ says 36-year-old Lacy -- whose dental hygiene leaves something to be desired by the looks of him -- told police he'd taken Lortab and Xanax the night of the sleepover.

Then he tells the cops he woke up to someone kissing his neck, and figuring it was his wife, he kissed back. Of course he doesn't remember anything else here -- he took all those painkillers.

The girl -- who was a virgin at the time -- is now nine weeks pregnant, and Lacy is facing sexual assault charges.

The horror of the story leads to a host of questions, from where was the mother at this time? Who takes serious narcotics when they're supposed to be in charge of a group of pre-teens? And how did an 11-year-old become pregnant?

Four years ago Britain announced its first official "youngest mother" was a girl who was the same age -- 11.

The world's youngest ever seems to be a 5-year-old Peruvian girl.

Now with puberty striking kids as young as 4 -- and more and more of them -- these sad stories are becoming more common according to researchers.

Girls are being compelled to act the age they look rather than the age they are, and they're often coerced into sexually mature relationships that don't meet their emotional age. Whether it's by a boy their own age closer to their age or an adult, they're being victimized.

Add to it the fact that the presence of a menstrual cycle enables the body to become pregnant, and it's compounding the tragedy of sexual assault with the stigma of being pregnant at such a young age.

I feel so sorry for the girl because she is so young to have a baby and that man well is jsut sick. Him saying he thought it was his wife is bs.

I'm all for pro life and everything but this is a difficult situation... such a young child to go through a pregnancy. She's far too young to make this decision for herself.  Adoption is a good choice also. Such a sad thing to happen to a child. I feel so sorry for her..

I actually just said that! My daughter is only 2 and I'm so scared for her to go to one now. (when she's older of course)..

I support the right to choose and having said that I do not believe abortion should be used as a method of birth control and I absolutely support adoption over abortion but for the body of an 11 year old to go through pregnancy and then birth, I just dont think its the best choice.  My youngest daughter is 12 and although she is the size of small adult I couldnt even begin to imagine her body physically and mentally supporting a pregnancy and delivery.  I hope whatever choice is made for and by this child having a child is what is best for her and I pray that before that dirtbag gets sent to prison that someone tattoos all over his body "I got an 11 year old pregnant" so that his cellmates can truly show him some love!!!

Being from that general region I have to say that I've heard stories of this nature going back several decades at least. Am I horrified...yes. I only wish I were more surprised.

Whether it's by a --->boy their own age<--- or an adult, they're being victimized.



What the crap is this. No, if it is a boy their own age the responsibility lies with both of them, the boy is not victimizing the girl; unless somehow you are suggesting that a girl at the same age as a male is somehow less able to think for herself. Seriously, while this guy is sick, don't editorialize story with unrelated and degrading girls with stuff like this. Girls at equal age with a male are not any less cognoscente than that male.

'Whether it's by a boy their own age or an adult, they're being victimized.'



So regardless of the situation, it will always be the guys fault? I can understand if there is a significant age difference, but if there is NONE, you automatically blame the guy?



I thought perhaps a site like this would not embrace something as low as sexism... but I was wrong.



The guy was a creep, sure... but that's no reason to say all girls are always innocent, even if they have sexual encounters with people of the same age. What if it was 2 girls of the same age... is there no fault?
