Keith Adger Smyth – The Face of Teen Sex Offenders

Charged as an adult

Because of my very pubic online support for tough sex offender registry laws perverts and their groupies spend their time claiming that I’m some unholy combination of the Taliban and the Inquisition. Often their arguments revolve around the mythical star crossed teen lovers who run afoul of the “draconian” sex offender laws during some sort of Romeo and Juliet style romance. There is no evidence that this has ever happened and most teen sex offenders are more like Keith Adger Smyth.

The 16-year-old Smyth is accused of molesting and raping four boys from ages 7-14. It is reported that he performed oral sex on them, raped them anally and used force to receive oral sex from them. By any account this is rape and molestation, not youthful indescretion. Adger is a violent sex offender by any standard, and was found to be threatening the victims to attempt to get them not to testify.

From WSPA:

Investigators with the Spartanburg County Sheriff’s Office arrested 16-year-old Keith Adger Smyth and charged him with one count of Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor — victim 11 to 14 yrs of age inclusive and three counts of Criminal Sexual Conduct with a Minor –- victim under 11 yrs of age.

According to officials Smyth will be charged as an adult and has been transported to the Department of Juvenile Justice facility in Columbia, SC.

Investigators believe there may be more victims that have not been indentified or have not come forward. If anyone has been a victim of Mr. Smyth or if you have any information about this case or other victims you are asked to call Investigator Nicki Cantrell of the Special Victims Unit at (864) 503-4604.

I guarantee you that within a few years you will see people arguing that Smyth shouldn’t be on a registry, but is that true? Smyth violated, raped and threatened several boys, some as young as 7-years-old. That he’s clearly been damaged in some way is obvious, but so should be the danger this teen poses to society.

The next time some tool tells you it’s not fair that teens can get put on registries remember Keith Adger Smyth. More importantly remember Keith Adger Smyth’s terrified and brutalized victims. Remember that they are the only victims in this who deserve our sympathy.

    He’s been accused and charged, not yet convicted. There’s something in this country called a Constitution that says people are innocent until they’re proven guilty. You’re the law and order type, so I bet you are a Federalist type as well. The Constitution of the United States of America applies to all of us, whether they meet your personal approval or not.

    That said, once the little spawn of Satan has been convicted, all that goes out the window. Upon his release from prison, he SHOULD be on the sex offender registry. I’ve read that the recidivism rate for sexual predators is high. Can one ever be rehabilitated? I personally highly doubt it, so no matter how stigmatizing it may be, sex offenders should be on registries. This is a circumstance where the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.

    Whoops, I meant Constitutionalist, not Federalist.

    The Constitution says that crime blogs need to have trials for criminals? Do tell. The Constitution says that the average citizen can’t form opinions and express them in public about crimes?

    Or does it say that the criminal justice system presumes innocence?

    Somebody needs to look at this kid’s life… parents, step-parents, grand parents and in-laws. Somebody broke this kid and should also be taken to jail. Not defending…. just saying the police work shouldn’t end with this kid alone. Glad he got nabbed now and before the list of victims got any longer. I’ll bet anyone five bucks that this kid has killed small animals as a hobby.

    Loup Garous you’re right. After his trial we should charge someone else with something. Even if they didn’t molest him where the hell was his family when he was raping four different children?

    I have no idea what you’re talking about but I do know this.

    I became a Wiccan at 13 and am still a Pagan. I practice Witchcraft, as well as ceremonial magic (but I don’t spell it with a K like a hack) quite often. I don’t know who “certifies” Witches in these parts (nor do I k now many Witches who take “God” as their witness) but I do know that threatening to curse me because you helped raise a pervert will end very badly for you.

    I myself am bi-racial – so unlike many of the White people you’re used to screaming at I don’t sweat Black folk.

    I don’t know why you’re sending threats to me – but I will pass them on to the police.
