>18yo Austrian arrested after traveling to Florida to have sex with 15-year-old he met online

>Criminal Investigations Sergeant Gerardo Carrillo said 18-year-old Leo Simetzberger booked a flight and rented an Airbnb in Venice for some real face time.

>"They had been talking since September. They finally decided it was time for them to meet," said Sgt. Carrillo.

>On Monday morning, the 15-year-old's mother called Sarasota County deputies to report her daughter was missing. Investigators issued an alert and the teen was quickly located.

>She told detectives that Simetzberger came to the U.S. to be with her. While they were at the rented property, there was sexual activity between the two, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office.

that first pic was misleading. he's clearly fugly. checks out.

No. 275582

Obviously the girl tried to sneak around her parents, and the 18 year old tried to sneak around the law.
Even if she were Australian she isn't legal.

There's nothing hard about not touching other people's minors, especially if there's thousands of miles of ocean between their targets. I really don't get people like this.

No. 275585

Good. Glad she’s safe and this piece of shit got caught. Fucking a minor is bad enough, but she could’ve been beaten, kidnapped, or even killed.

No. 275587

Age of consent is 14 in Austria though?
Am I the only one who doesn't find it that horrifying?
I had schoolmates who dated freshmen as seniors and people thought it was fine.
There's also this couple I know who started dating when she was 15 and he was 22 and I'm the only one who was disgusted by it as far as I know.

No. 275591

I'm probably going to get slack for this here but am I the only one that thinks that as soon she's older than 14, she kind of knew what she was doing?

It wasn't too long ago that I was a teen and despite being one, you know very well that leaving your country without your parents knowing to have sex with a stranger you met online is a very bad idea.

I don't find it that horrifying either. I do think they deserve each other.

I find it disgusting too when the guy is 8+ older than the girl and that happens more often than it should, but there's not a big age gap between the two and honestly, the girl may have lacked life experience but she was and should have been aware of the consequences. If the guy is going to get punished so should she.

As far as I can tell from the article, she wasn't lured or coerced into leaving the states, so…

No. 275593

I googled their age of consent and it says 16.

No. 275595

I think you are mistaking Austria for Australia kek

as far as the age gap goes, florida has romeo and juliet laws. i don't approve of them in older male/young female relationships, and i certainly don't approve of this, but i was in a relationship at 16 with a 19 yo and that was completely legal in fl, and afaik, as long as it was within the 4 year thing, it wouldn't be illegal for something like 15 and 18, so i don't understand what the deal is with this? he did have the intent to 'kidnap' the child by definition though, and i don't approve of him deliberately going out of his way to be with a younger girl. imo, no young males older than like, 2 years should be allowed to be with younger girls, and it should be illegal for adult older male/younger female 6+ year gaps. older male/younger female shit, even at like, 37, is always poison.

Lol you're right. I'm at work that's what I get, thought OP said Ausstralian.

>florida has romeo and juliet laws

That would only apply if he was younger than 18. He turned 18 in June. He is charged with lewd or lascivious battery.

No. 275612

>if he was younger than 18
i don't think that's it, bc i just found out that it wouldn't include a 15 yo in fl (tho other states allow for 15 and 18 w romeo and juliet laws). 16 it would though. 15 yos can't consent to sex in fl even with other 15 yos. i read a few sites saying 15 is fine, but come to find out, it's apparently not. if she was 16 and he 19, it wouldve been fine.

No. 275613


>It is also possible for an individual who was 18 years old or younger when he or she engaged in a consensual sexual relationship with another individual aged 14 to 18 to petition for removal from the state’s sex offender registry under Florida’s “Romeo and Juliet” law.


No. 275616

but that's just avoiding registration. it'd still be illegal, i think, he just wouldn't have to register as a sex offender? i don't know.

No. 275668

I mean, in Sweden as example it’s legal to have sex at 15, and teens under that at 13-14 are mostly sexually active. I’m not saying it’s always right but as long as these teens stay within a 1-3 year gap it’s not that bad. That 18yo is a fucking idiot tho.

No. 275947

I'm also from Sweden which might be why I'm not freaking out about this as some other anons. I mean at 15 you know what you're getting into and you're most likely sexually active. I remember literally all of my friends fucking 2-3 year older guys when we were all 15. (Traveling across the ocean to fuck is kinda dumb though).

No. 276371

why are so many anons having reading comprehension issues? he's AUSTRIAN, and the girl didn't leave the states, HE came to the US and rented an AirBnb in Venice, Florida.

No. 276375

Well good thing you're here to set the record straight days after that was posted…!

No. 276402

why didn't you just post this in the man hating thread, tbh I don't think this is bad. It would be a different story if he were 25. He's a teenager

No. 276449

why does this have it's own thread?

No. 277489

In Austria they report that he asked for confirmation about her being of legal age (i.e. 16 yrs) and that she sent a fake birth certificate. I.e. he was led to believe that it was okay. (His parents would not have supported him meeting her otherwise.)

No. 277514

lol no judge is going to fall for that lol. at least his parents will support him while he's behind bars

No. 277606

I don't think the age gap is bad at all, what i find weird is how a 18 year old decided to travel across the globe just to get his dick wet.
