I am sorry, maybe it is my

I am sorry, maybe it is my age and poor eyesight, but nowhere in the ariticle did it mention the victim's age. Did I miss something???? With all the willing available women why does he need to rape anyone? Well it all boils down to power and control. Once he steps into prison he will become very acquainted with power and control. If he is cute enough he will become someone's wife. He will enjoy wedded bliss with his new found partner, until he tires of him, then he will be passed around like the piece of trash he really is.
