This one isn't crazy for what police allege Laieski did, but rather the circumstances surrounding the case.

Laieski, 18, has been nationally recognized for his advocacy, after overcoming anti-gay bullying that led him to drop out of high school. He was prominently featured in an anti-bullying documentary, earned a gig acting as a youth and diversity advocate for Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton's office, and even met with President Obama and Vice President Biden to talk about LGBT youth issues.

Recently, however, Laieski was indicted by a grand jury on the sex-crime charges, in a case in which Laieski's alleged to also be a victim.

Your website is a real pain to navigate. Having to hit next page and wait for all the ads to load isn't worth reading the articles. Although most of them peak my interest, I never get through them because the page is just annoying.
