    its wierd that you go to school with him …… then figure out hes a dang pedifile!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! god dang dude…. you got what you deserved.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • Takes one to know one

      This is the pot calling the kettle black, like you have room to talk Dean with all the bull$hit you do you should be sitting right there with him. So stop trying to look cool with you comment, when you don’t know anything.

      • i agree with "Takes one to know one"

        agreed ^^^

  • Katherine Wilcox

    I saw him almost every day. It’s intense and disturbing that someone you know personally would do this to someone. It makes you take a step back and take a look at things.

  • me

    This man worked at Walgreens on Belleview and Federal. He was always so pleasant and nice. Like the other comment that says you really take a step back. It is very sad about our society.

  • Carissa

    i dont belive this, not at all, he was such a nice guy i just dont understand.

    • Travis John

      Everyone says that… Ted Bundy was a “nice guy” too. Anyone can put on that act. You should really work on your people judging skills for your own safety.

  • denvervet

    I thought this GUY was a GIRL, he looks very feminine to me. Book ’em Dano! Ted Bundy was a really nice, handsome, intelligent man……

    • vet this moron

      You are pathetic with your girl comment get a life dude!

  • Tyler LaForett

    I knew Anthony personaly he WOULD NOT do something like this. all the comments saying its shocking obviously didnt know him.

    • Travis John

      I get so sick of hearing that… every time something like this happens there is shock and indignation…

      • Ben

        Then don’t read the comments.

  • Evan Gilmore

    This is sad, I knew him from school and I even worked with him, he was a really friendly and nice guy we would always joke and mess around at work, I didn’t think he would be this kinda person? I know what he did was wrong, but I think there making him out to sound worse than he really is.

  • Sad story

    If you have ever met Anthony he is a polite and respectful young man and to judge with out knowing all the facts or the details is not right. We only get what the news wants us to hear. Shame on the little girls out there acting older and talking to older men,hey are just as bad and should also be punished!

  • sd

    I am a regular customer at the Walgreens where he worked. I was so shocked to see him on the news. It always struck me how polite and friendly he was with each and every customer. In a world of rude and detached people, he always took the time to ask how my day was and wish me well on my way out. Assuming all the charges are true, I hope he can accept the consequences of his actions and do the time, learning a harsh lesson along the way. But really hope the best for him in the long run… also hope he receives a competent defense and a fair trial… seems to be a bit of a witch hunt underway.

  • everyone think about this

    this doesnt say her age was set 9 years older than she was, if her parents were so concerned they would have noticed that… im sure he didnt try to lure a 13 year old girl… he would always make my day, always had a smile on his face, and always made everyone else smile. and why are we comparing him to a psychotic murderer? thats a bit extreme… anthony is a very good person. he did not intentionally try to “sexually assault” this girl. for all we know, she initiated… everyone knows the way media and the system works.. we only get one side; the side that makes everyone look bad, and dean i totally agree you should be the one sitting there, not anthony…

  • Nunya

    he didnt know she was 13. thats all. end of story. he doesnt deserve to be sittin ina cell when that hoe was tellin him a different story. society is so messed up. he would never do something like this.. we should know, we are the friends sittin around with broken hearts becuase our homike is locked up for something he is better than.

  • Trigga
