I met Kyle when he was very

I met Kyle when he was very young, I am a few years older. In the last 10 years we have drifted apart, but we were like brothers for quite a few years. We would fish, play Legos together, and his parents would take us to town. Orb, Diane, and Kyle were all very good to me. Yes his father has a bit of money, but that doesn't make him a bad guy. I only found out recently that Kyle was in a terrible car accident. I wish I could have been there to support him. I find it hard to believe that the funny, creative, and sweet little boy I knew could have done these things. I hope sincerely this is not true, or at least that there are circumstance revealing why, if this is true. As I said before, there was a time when we were like brothers, so I could never see Kyle as a "monster". Best wishes to the Hatton family, and please don't throw stones until all EVIDENCE is presented. Forever your friend Kyle, Jacob Prater

He might have been a good guy

He might have been a good guy or whatever in his PAST. But obviously he has changed, who in their right mind could ever do this? He deserves to be in jail.

innocent until proven gulity?

innocent until proven gulity? or were you there?

Gee, Seems like we all heard

Gee, Seems like we all heard that when his older brother was arrested the first time. 1 million dollars bail pretty much says it all. A very sick family.

What ever happened to

What ever happened to "innocent until proven guilty"? Are people really so ignorant these days that they follow the pack like a herd of sheep and believe what they read? Do you not have the courage to be an individual and stay off the bandwagon? If anyone knows Kyle, they know he's an upright, respectful man. Just because its posted online and in the news papers does not mean he is guilty. To everyone who respected and loved him before, what kind of person does it make you to automatically go against him when there's absolutely no proof of anything yet.

Really? Law enforcement in

Really? Law enforcement in Mariposa is so deperate that they will just arrest anyone for sexual assault? Wow. I believe his brother was "innocent" too yet did time for it and is now marked as a sex offender. Makes one think. You are innocent until proven guilty but, if it looks like a duck....

Dear Anonymous People, If

Dear Anonymous People, If you have the audacity to make such strong statements, you should at least have the courage to own them. Put you name on it or stay off of here. CT

Believe! There are those who

Believe! There are those who comfort and condone child molesters for whatever sick reasons they have. The sheriff's Dept is on this and would not do what they did for no reason. If you're a supporter of child molesters, you really need to take a long look in the mirror.

DON'T BELIEVE ANYTHING FROM

DON'T BELIEVE ANYTHING FROM MARIPOSA COUNTY UNTIL THEY PROVE IT. THEY PUT PEOPLE IN JAIL BASED ONLY ON HEARSAY,RUIN PEOPLE'S LIFE ONLY TO LATER DROP CHARGES BECAUSE OF LACK OF EVIDENCE. I AM A CONCERNED TAX PAYING CITIZEN. I HAVE NEVER BEEN IN ANY TROUBLE WITH THE LAW, BUT I HAVE SEEN THIS HAPPEN TO PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTY SO ALL I'M ASKING IS DON'T BE SO FAST TO JUDGE. IT COULD BE YOU NEXT!

i agree mariposas court

i agree mariposas court system is full of idiots. they dont care about peoples lives just as long as they get paid. i wish the government would step in a see what they have been doing, mariposa is full of money hungry idiots. they will charge anyone with anything.

Disgusting

Disgusting

To the person who commented

To the person who commented at 18:14.... Wow, really! Obviously something happened for Kyle to get arrested & bail set at one million. I know his parents have money, he could have been let out by now. But, he's still in there where he should be. Yes, I think a judge should decide! His brother is already a registered sex offender. There is obviously something wrong with these boys. I pray for the children he allegedly abused. This is disgusting. It is really sad to look back at when he was younger. & when we were all in school together, and this is where he ended up! If this is indeed true, & he is charged with these crimes, I hope the inmates in that prison do the same to him 10x worse than he did to these children.

Wow. I cannot believe the

Wow. I cannot believe the ignorance of the people who respond to these articles. First of all, the Sheriff's Office is still investigating the severity of the crime so to put the parents and the business they run on the front page is uncalled for. Second, why do you assume a father, cop, or inmate beat the suspect up. It is clear by the picture that these injuries are very old and have been healing for several months if not years. Third, do you really think the Sheriff's Office would really arrest such an "upstanding person" and the judicial system see it fit to set bail at one million dollars if the evidence did not support such actions. Lastly, bagging on the Sheriff about not labeling these two suspects "monsters" is just plain unintelligent. Everyone knows if you use the same term over and over it degrades the term when it should really be used.

i think before you all start

i think before you all start making comments on a web page wait till the judge decides what really happened from the evidence submitted. i smell money hungry parents. Kyle Hatton is one of the most stand up persons i have had the privilege to have know.

What? Not going to call them

What? Not going to call them "Monsters" Sheriff?

Doesn't the family own a

Doesn't the family own a boutique and real estate office in the Don Pedro area and isn't their a school bus stop by their home?

The pic shows a guy who looks

The pic shows a guy who looks like he was beat up. Did someone's dad, a cop or an inmate do this? My heart goes out to the parents of the victim, the victim and the parents of the perps. No need for a witch hunt. The parents are dealing with enough.

He got in a car accident a

He got in a car accident a few years ago and had a lot of surgeries. He almost didnt make it.
