The victim faced over an hour of questions and was constantly in tears throughout. She did describe Sprowson as being jealous at times although she made it clear that she believes he is "not a bad person." Through the questioning, she made it clear she was convinced Sprowsen knew her real age, and would permit her only to leave the home at night wearing baggy clothes, hats, and sunglasses. According to jail records he faces charges related to 1st degree kidnapping, child abuse / neglect, and permitting a minor to produce pornography.
It is this author's firm belief that the "age of consent law" in Nevada is horrific. I haven't the slightest clue as to why 16 years old is a sufficient age to "consent" to have sexual relations with an adult. It is ridiculous that this man is not facing rape charges. This law was ridiculous to me as a teenager, and now as a father of a two, it turns my stomach. If you have a chance to speak to a public official, legislator, or power player in this state, please voice your concern! I understand there must be due process, and this man is innocent until proven guilty, but it really does enrage me that he is not facing additional charges.
