Woman poses as teenager to rape boy

Or as The Huffington Post put it: Naomi Dixon, 31, Posed As Teen To Have Sex With 14-Year-Old, Kept Victim Locked In House.

Locking the victim in a house does not describe “having sex.” It describes rape. Let us look at the source article’s account of what happened:

A 14-year-old boy told authorities the Deltona woman he was having sex with once choked him and locked the door to keep him from leaving her home, officials say.

The woman, 31-year-old Naomi Dixon, was arrested Thursday and is charged with two counts of lewd/lascivious battery involving a sex act on a person between 12 and 16 years of age, records show.

The boy told investigators earlier this month that he met Dixon at the beginning of September at a party and stayed with her that night, according to a Volusia County sheriff’s report. He said Dixon told him she was 17 years old, and he told her he was 14.

The boy said he and Dixon had sex about eight times, and he had mostly stayed at her home since meeting her, according to the report. He told investigators he tried to leave Dixon’s home several times, but she would get upset, and one time she even choked him.

The 14-year-old said Dixon once took out a pocket knife and made cuts on her arms, including his first initial, according to the report. The boy told his parents about the relationship Sept. 25 because he was tired of Dixon trying to keep him at her home.

Yes, that is definitely rape. Yet the prosecutor chose to charge Dixon with lewd and lascivious battery, a second-degree felony. Why was she not charged with sexual battery, assault, attempted murder, and kidnapping? Why the light charges?

Perhaps that is because this happened in Florida, and the state has a horrible track record when it comes to charging women with crimes, especially sex crimes against minors.

Of course, Dixon claims that the boy lied about his age. She claims he said he was 18-years-old. That would at least get Dixon out of the lewd and lascivious charges, but it would not explain away her choking the boy or refusing to let him leave.

Dixon is currently held on a $50,000 bond, so it would appear the authorities are not taking the case seriously at all. Nicely done, Florida.

    I think everyone here knows why, Soldier. How much do you want to bet that some members of both the defense and prosecution are thinking this boy was “lucky” to be used like this? Yet if it was a 30+ year old man and a 14 year old girl, people would be up in arms…Double standards are alive and well in Florida it would seem.

  2. I don’t usually comment on articles like this, but just an observation: unless the Florida legal system is completely messed up and utterly gender biased, Dixon’s claims that the boy lied about his age shouldn’t have any bearing on the crime at all. As I recall, 15-year-old Charrida Smalley acquired two pieces of legal identification starting that she was 18 in order to start a pornographic career as Bieyanka Moore a few years back in Florida, and some of the people who made the film still went to jail for producing child pornography in spite of the fact that they did everything they were required to by law to verify her age. If their genuine claims of ignorance were ignored, Dixon’s false one should be as well.

  3. Indeed. In Minnesota, sexual misconduct laws for CSA state clearly “Neither mistake as to the complainant’s age nor consent to the act by the complainant is a defense;”

  4. I personally think that that law is messed up, to be honest. If you go so far as to card someone before you have sex with them and you get confirmation when checking up on the validity of their ID, the agency which issued the invalid ID should be punished rather than you.

    Not that this really has anything to do with Dixon’s case, of course…

    Actually I bet it was more along the lines of, “The defendant is a woman, we can’t treat the same way we’d treat an alleged male sex offender. I bet she was abused or something like that. Hell I wouldn’t be surprised if he raped her.”

    i say this because while what you say about it if it were a man/girl situation is true I also think that if this were a man/boy situation they would come down on the man.

    Yeah some of it is the “luck” you speak of but I think a big part of this is wanting to show a level of sympathy and compassion for this female offender that would simply not be shown for a male offender.

    TL;DR: “But….but….but….she’s a woman!!!! Women don’t do stuff like that!”

    You bring up a valid point. In most of Western society, women are continuously treated with “kid gloves” and given lighter sentences than comparable male criminals. This creates not only a dissonance in a woman’s grasp of responsible adulthood, but basically insults the victims of female perpetrated crimes.

    If a man is accused of rape, he is obviously guilty automatically…no evidence required before printing his name in the paper.

    If a woman is accused of rape, she may be guilty, but hey…it’s probably because she was sexually abused as a child, or was also raped, or had a psychotic episode, or…

    Give me a break. Once you’re over the age of 18, you are legally an adult and *should* be held to the more exacting standards that all “grown ups” are. Penis, vagina, whatever…doesn’t matter.

  7. Rape is rape.

    God, when is society going get through its thick-headed skull that women are capable of harm and boys can be victims?

  8. Don’t let Feminists redefine out language. Orwell’s 1984 was a warning not a manual.
