i know everyone is going nuts about all of the other huge news stories going on right now but
A 15-year-old boy who was raped by a 34-year-old woman now faces child support in Nebraska.
This is the case for now 19-year-old Jeremy Steen, of Lincoln, Nebraska. In 2008, Steen was seduced and raped repeatedly by his 34-year-old baby sitter Linda Kazinsky. Sources testified that the sexual abuse took place weekly for nearly 3 years. After police were alerted, Ms. Kazinsky was arrested and charged with statutory rape and false imprisonment.
Kazinsky was employed as a babysitter for the Steens for nearly 3 years.
After Kazinsky’s release from Nebraska’s state prison system in 2012 she was able to regain custody of her child. The child had been a ward of the state for the first 13 months until Debra Kazinsky, Linda’s sister, was able to gain custody. After being reunited with her child, Kazinsky promptly filed for Aid and Government assistance which in turn landed Jeremy with a subpena for child support.
Jeremy had his day in court and was ordered to pay $475 a month in child support to Linda Kazinsky as well as a whopping $23,000 in back Child Support payments.

Alright, did some research on this. I’d like to preface that I am completely aware that these things do happen, but this case does not appear to have occurred.
livewirereview.com is not a viable source. It has provided no sources of its own, but I’d be happy to alter my post if such sources appear. The earliest I’ve been able to locate this story is on livewirereview.com on May 29th, 2013.
A search for “Lincoln, Nebraska” AND “Kazinsky” in Google provides nothing. Linda Kazinsky and Jeremy Steen do not appear to have a presence on the internet other than some people who appear to share Steen’s name.
I did, however, find something else of interest in the Chicago Tribune from December 22nd, 1996 that is very similar. From what I’ve seen, this is livewirereview.com taking a legitimate article from years ago and changing it up to bring in more views.

Again, if anyone can provide a source to prove otherwise, I’d be happy to look at it and alter my opinion on this article should I deem it necessary.
This one wasn’t that hard, please please PLEASE do a quick google search before reblogging things like this, spreading false information like this can be very hurtful and have serious consequences.
