Sex with teen begets a year in prison for Gloria Glens Park man, 19

A 19-year-old Gloria Glens Park man was sentenced Thursday to a year in prison for having sex with a teenage girl and having a nude photo on his phone of another girl.

Trebor Simon, of the first block of Lakefield Lane, pleaded guilty to unlawful sexual conduct with a minor and illegal use of a minor in nudity-oriented material. The charges are fourth- and fifth-degree felonies, punishable by up to 2½ years in prison.

Simon also was labeled a Tier II sex offender, meaning he must register with his local sheriff’s office every six months for 25 years after his release from prison.

Medina County Prosecutor Matt Razavi said Simon had sex with a 14-year-old girl in December. When police arrested him, they found the photo of another girl on his phone.

Razavi asked county Common Pleas Judge James L. Kimbler to sentence Simon to 17 months in prison and had a victim advocate read a statement from the girl’s mother.

“I know my daughter isn’t innocent in this, but Trebor is an adult and should have known better,” the mother wrote. “I pray you put him in jail so this doesn’t happen again.”

The mother said Simon took the girl’s virginity and tried to seduce a friend of the girl on Facebook.

Simon’s attorney, Sean Buchanan, said the teenager went to his client’s residence after running away from home. He said Simon at first didn’t want the girl at his house, but eventually let her inside.

Buchanan said his client admits to the having sex with the girl but said Simon has developmental disabilities that make him mentally “more like a young teenager than an adult.”

Simon, who was given a chance to address the judge, said he didn’t know how old the girl was.

“She said she was 19 and her Facebook page said she was 19,” Simon said. “All of my friends said she was older.”

He admitted what he did was wrong.

“It doesn’t make it right,” he said, “but I didn’t know her age.”

    My question is what is being done about these so called innocent young girls who are seeking out older boys lying about their age and sending nude picture of themselves? So the girl in question continues on with path of being on adult dateing sites posing as a 20 year woman and the man in question goes to prision and for the next 25 years is a registered sex offender? This is not a one sided case, there is no innocent victim here. There is a man who is losing his right to have a productive life and girl who has no consequences and who was anything but innocent.

    There are 2 sides to every story. Unfortunately only one side was heard

    So a teen goes to jail for having sex with a teen and having a photo of a nude female…I suspect if that is a crime there should be many other teens going to jail soon.

    Law is law ; it isn’t shades of gra,y it is black and white. Your son should have checked her I.d. and took a picture of it for evidence. That is what I recommend all my students to do.

    Well I’m sorry, but none of my friends or anyone I know asks for an ID before talking to someone. I’m Trebor’s age & know how people our age actually act. I doubt she brought her “ID” the day she ran away from home & walked in the freezing cold to his residence. Smh.

    She walked in the freezing cold 5 min away from her dad’s house, trebor thought she was 15 he told the detective that, why do you think they tried to use “he has the mentality of a young teenager” in court.let me guess he didn’t know what he was doing when he begged that girl to get pregnant meanwhile had another girl pregnant, or how about when he stalked her brother and sister because according to him “he loved her so he should know everyone in her family”…no this “girl” isn’t innocent but she’s a child, him he’s an adult.

    Photo was of yet another young girl

    Interesting you say he ‘begged’ to get her pregnant? Wonder where you got your info from.. hmm. Also, SHE did walk in the ‘freezing cold’ & claimed her father was abusing her, SHE ran away from home. The only way the police saw Trebor’s phone to begin with, is because he was showing them where he told her NOT to come over. As far as stalking her family goes… lololol. You must be from her side with all of this interesting info your putting out there. Two sides to every story. End of story. Also, if “she” puts herself out to look much older than she is, she will be caught up in adult situations. My daughter won’t be looking 19 when she’s 14. Or having a social network profile claiming she is an age, of which she is not. A lot of this could have been prevented if she didn’t put herself out to be much older. Lets post a picture of her from her profile & ask random people how old they think she is… bet you none will say 14. Easy to point fingers, but this ‘child’ shouldn’t act like an adult, if she doesn’t want to be treated like one.

  • SpeakingTruth

    Who willingly took pictures of herself, & sent them. I bet Trebor held a gun to her head & made her. Lol, oh people.

  • seriously annoyed

    I believe you need to get your facts straight on this matter because you have no idea about what your talking about. 2 question for you..one why wasn’t Trebor charged with the nude pictures the so called victim sent him? Question 2 why wasn’t it brought up that the so called victim is on several dating sites claiming to be 19 & her Facebook said she’s 19? I have an answer for you..it’s because she no longer looks like a victim. There was no rape involved, she was not forced in any way and was not harmed. Bottom line is there needs to be consequences on both sides of the fence here. No Trebor is not innocent, but the so called victim here is far from a victim. While Trebor is behind bars for a year this girl is still lying about her age and sending nude pictures. Sad but true.

  • annoyed

    It was a 16 year old. One has to wonder why he wasn’t charged with all the naked pictures the so called victim sent him….hmmm
