    Keep him in jail. I know who he is and he plays every girl in and around hays. He’s trash, and deserves every bit of it.

    • Ridiculous

      lol says the one hiding behind a computer screen. you’re a worthless piece. I also know the girls and they have done this plenty of times before.

  • Hays Resident

    “To Catch a Predator” much? I am sure there are more of these guys in the area…. they just haven’t been caught yet!

  • Hays

    This guy has been hitting on multiple girls in this area for several years who were not even in high school. When he was a senior he was trying to get 8th grade girls to “go out” with him. He was warned this could happen and he continued to do what he was doing.

  • Hays

    He had a baby with someone in high school and now is going after 8th grade girls… Even though he is a dad. Gross.

  • Joe

    From what I have heard these girls are not the most respectable people either.

  • averagejoe

    before we start going to catch a predator over here maybe you should know that hes never had any physical contact with the 13 year old, or ever seen her in person for that matter, it was through online conversations, and maybe we should be suspicious about the girls? the girl goes around school bragging about how many guys she gets in trouble for this, and has already had several sex partners. so maybe we should start putting a lil more blame on promiscuous girls then a good guy. free gus.

    • hays local

      good statement bro, i these girls are equally at fault. he should not be getting on the blame for this stuff

      • FYI

        The little icon in the corner shows that these two statements were made from the same computer….just thought you kids might want to know that so next time you can use 2 different computers.

        • Uncle Thomas

          thank you for the insight FYI.

        • tatslady

          Does that mean that yours and “Hays” was made from the same computer as well?

          • http://hayspost Arthur Doyle

            Yes. That is exactly what it means.

          • inkslinger

            maybe they only have one computer that these people share

      • TD

        What…the…&*%$?! I never thought I’d see the day someone would defend someone like this. I understand he may be your friend, but now if I were to meet you in person I would be cautious of you as well. If you ask me I wouldn’t be surprised if you were present during this luring. If you are currently seeking employment please refrain from entering the day care field.

    • wow

      Put the blame on the girls? The 13 and 14 year old girls? You are an idiot. He knew he was breaking the law. Keep that scumbag in jail.

  • groggyship

    my thoughts are first of all he needs to wipe that smug smile off his face.secondly maybe hes a player,and maybe these girls are a lil bit questionable,but…he was the adult hell even a father.theres plenty of beautiful girls of legal age out there and he could of showed more self restraint.personally I hope the ca gets a better sentence then he did for the creep who raped my daughter and 4 others the youngest being 10.but he only got 14 years.the system is a joke

  • wow

    this young man does not deserve this one bit. The girl who sent him a picture “gets around” she is only 13 and i can assure you that she most likely lied about her age and the 15 year old girl obviously wanted him also. Don’t go putting all the blame on him. Yes he messed up but the girls have a huge roll in this also. free gus

  • recovering addict

    The parent of the 14 year old shud of been knowing what her kid was doing, less partyin for the adults and more supervision..maybe. These situations wudnt happen.

    • averagejoe

      iv also heard that this girls parents are on the party seen, and have been known to try to have sex with young teenagers. of course this is the role model this girl has

  • Hays

    Girls lie about their ages all the time. I don’t think he should be getting all the blame for this. If he was really a bad person and the girls didn’t want something to do with him they would of stopped talking to him right away. Not send pictures back to him? I find it ridiculous that the girls can go along with it but when they’re done, they make him look bad. It’s not all his fault. I can garantee the girls lied about they’re age. How can they be the ones sending pictures but him get in trouble. Don’t tell me he “pressured” them into it. The girls need to take accountability for their actions. I think Reyes is a very good person and doesn’t deserve this.

  • Reaper

    Are most of you that have replied to this story in High School? Who gives a rats *ss if it was her or him. He is an adult and should have known better. Wipe that smile off of your face you little sh*thead! I hope you get what you deserve. There are plenty of promiscuous girls above legal age that he could pursue but must elect to do it to minors.

    • dan

      Plenty of sex awaits him at the state pen!

  • Your mother

    Free Gus!!!!

  • Sooooo

    Let me get this straight…A guy who was warned, multiple times, to stop trying to have sex with girls 4-5 years younger than himself because this result was a possibility, who blew off that warning and actually scoffed at it, gets caught having what is most likely “consentual sex” with the underage kids, smirks at his picture liket his isn’t a big deal…..but lets call the girls names. Wow! No one was saying he wasn’t having consentual sex and the questionability of these girls reputations is irrelevant. However, these girls legally are not old enough to give consent, which leads to legal charges. Should we bring his sex life into play…no! Right versus wrong…law says these girls were off limits and he didn’t care and continued to do it. Had a child with a girl who was under 18…was accused of having a child with another girl under 18. Has had sex with multiple girls under 18…well under 18..not just a couple of years. This is on him and he needs to be accountable for it. And if we want to start talking crap on parents…where the heck were his parents when he was making these unwise decisions. Come on people…think a little bit. Stop trash talking the children…because under 18…still classifed as a child and OFF limits to those over 18. He knew their ages…and these were not the only incidents. If people would educate their kids about the dangers of having sex with minors once they become adults…this stuff wouldn’t happen. Maybe some people will learn from this…we can only hope. It’s unfortunate and I hope the youth in this town start taking advice when given so they don’t end up ruining their lives too.

  • Hamburgler

    MAYBE THEY WERE IN LOVE, LIKE ROMEO AND JULIET!!!!

  • GARY

    hamburgler you don’t know what your talking about this 19 year old is an adult and he got caught and he has to pay for what he did

  • Uncle Thomas

    Didnt take the time to read all responses…with that said, the youg man is of legal age and they are not. Yes parents should be aware of what their children are doing on computers. Men should be aware girls can lie! Wake the heck up, be responsible…!

  • hmmmm

    I find it funny that people are focusing on these girls lying about their age. You guys keep saying the girl was 13 but said she was 15, C’MON 15 is still not of age, so he is still in the wrong. QUIT trying to stand up for an adult that should know better. There is not a grey line when the legal age is so he needs to spend some time wtih bubba in the state pen.

    JMO

  • Seriously

    These girls get around. They should of quite talking to him from the beginning. If he is such a gross person then why would the girls continue to talk to him, not only that but also send pictures. I’m sure if they wouldn’t of lied about their age he would of stopped talking to them. I put some blame of the parents also for not watching who their kids are talking to. I would be ashamed if I knew my daughter was sending naked pictures to a male. It’s not his fault that girls lie about their age.

  • spelling?

    This doesn’t pertain to this story specifically, but what has happened to the population’s ability to spell and use grammar? Shud, ther, wudnt, partyn are not words. You should use good grammar if you ever want to be taken seriously.

    • Agree

      And its not “should of” or “would of.” Correct is, should have, would have.

      • inkslinger

        technology has made humans stupid

  • Hays res

    If this guy was say 40 there would not be any discussion of wether the girls were promiscuious. Everyone would think he was a creeper. So it doesn’t matter if ur 19, 25, or 40 This is wrong.

  • By-Stander

    This guy started hitting on me when I was just 11 and he was 16. I told him it was creepy and illegal and he told me I was too young to understand that it was ok, and not creepy. Well I did understand and then two years later he came by with the same motives. I pushed him away again.
    I was terrified of him.

    Now as a 14 year old, this is extremely satisfying to see. He deserves every bit of it. He is sick and needs a wake up call.

    Paul Harvey once said “Gonads are a poor substitute for brains”. I have no sympathy for the young man.
