Convicted Child Rapist Tells Court That Boy Wasn't A Victim Because He Wanted It

Kelsey McCarter is serving a three-year prison sentence for repeatedly sexually assaulting a teen boy.

Knoxville, TN – A woman convicted of repeatedly raping a 14-year-old boy has asked the court to toss out a $2 million lawsuit the victim has filed against her, claiming he was a “willing participant” during their sexual encounters, according to her attorney.

Kelsey McCarter, 29, was convicted of six counts of statutory rape by an authority figure and one count of exploitation of a minor by electronic means in 2017, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported.

She is currently serving a three-year prison sentence.

According to court records, McCarter met the victim while her husband, Justin McCarter, was working as the assistant football coach at South-Doyle High School.

The victim and his older brother, both of whom played football for the school, moved in with the McCarters in July of 2014.

According to the teens’ single mother, she agreed to allow her sons to live with the coach and his wife after they began skipping school and sneaking out of her house.

The first sexual assault occurred in July of 2015, just before the victim turned 15 years old, according to the lawsuit.

While her husband was outside washing the car, McCarter, who was then 25 years old, performed oral sex on the victim.

She later engaged in sexual activities with the teen behind a Taco Bell, in a Dollar Tree parking lot, in her vehicle, and in the couple’s home, according to court records.

In August of 2015, Justin told the teen he and his wife were having marital troubles, and that both boys needed to move out.

According to the lawsuit, McCarter also had sex with the victim that day.

The couple denied that Justin had any knowledge of the sexual encounters between McCarter and the boy, but the victim’s lawsuit alleged that he either knew about what was occurring or that he suspected it.

McCarter allegedly sexually abused the teen on five additional occasions after he moved out.

In October of 2015, McCarter convinced her husband to allow the teen to move back into their home, but he soon moved out again after being kicked off of the school’s football team.

Although he moved back in with his mother and changed schools, McCarter continued to pursue him, and sexually abused him several more times between October of 2015 and January of 2016, when the teen posted a nude photo of her onto social media.

The photo was passed on to school officials, who contacted the police, the New York Post reported.

McCarter was subsequently indicted, and her husband resigned from his position.

Her attorney, Doug Trant, argued that because the teen allegedly wanted to have a sexual relationship with McCarter, he was not the victim of sexual abuse and is not entitled to damages, the Knoxville News Sentinel reported.

“It was reasonable for Ms. McCarter to believe that [the boy] desired to be involved sexually with her and that he willingly participated in their sexual relationship,” Trant’s motion read.

“By [the boy's] own admission in the complaint, he continued to ‘submit’ to the sexual contacts with Ms. McCarter because he wanted to return to live with the McCarters,” the motion continued. “[He] desired and maintained the sexual relationship with Ms. McCarter in order to derive a personal benefit — initially to extend his stay at the McCarters’ residence and then to ensure his return therein.”

Justin’s attorney, Julia Trant, still maintains her client had no idea his wife was raping the boy.

“Plaintiff’s complaint represents a profound example of the well-known proverb ‘no good deed goes unpunished,’” the attorney’s motion read.

A hearing regarding the motion to dismiss the teen’s $2 million lawsuit is scheduled for Dec. 20, the New York Post reported.

So having sex at 15, one is considered a minor and parents scream and yell, but if a 15 year old were to go on a shooting spree, he'd be tried as an adult, and it happens ALL the time. And you women are the biggest hippocrates. You've all dated older men when you were younger and have had sex with older men when you were a teen. But if it were your kid, all of a sudden its throw the book at her. Typical!!!

Here is the deal with this. Police and teachers compete for tax money. This causes some police officers to dislike teachers and dislike the very idea of public education. The theory is that if we abolished public education then there would be more money for police and prisons, and police officer salaries and police officer opportunities for overtime would go up. That is why these stories get so much play here. It is not so much the fact that there was statutory rape (there is a lot of statutory rape and most of it does not have a high degree of police involvement attached the way a murder or kidnapping would), but, rather, this site seems to want to cast aspersions on the teaching profession by hyping up these stories when they do occur. Yes, this is bad, but I don't get the feeling that there is much genuine sympathy for the victim here -- he is being used as a pawn in what amounts to an economic and political game that competes for tax money at a high level.

The ONLY people who think it's OK to have sex with underage minors are pedophiles. PERIOD.

To young to consent. If it had been a male teacher having sex with a female student it would be a completely different story.

So he didn't want to live at home (who really knows why) & "submitted" to her sexual advances in order "to extend his stay at the McCarters’ residence and then to ensure his return therein.” He may have wanted it, who really knows, we can't assume because he's male that he did, but I digress, if we don't allow 14-15 year olds to work, drive, smoke, drink, vote, enter into contracts or check themselves out of school then we can't have them consent. Whether I agree or not it doesn't matter IT'S THE LAW

I’d like to know the physical discription of the alleged victim, I’ve seen some 15 and 16 yo football players who were as big as or bigger than grown men. Just sayin

The majority of 14-15 yr old boys think with their head and it is not the one on their shoulders. Be it illegal or not, if they are offered sex by a woman w/o argument, you think they are going to tur it down. Fat chance.
