Mother Detains Teen Daughter's Perv Lover With Unloaded BB Gun ... A Fort Mill, South Carolina mother held a gun on 23 year-old Addison Pittman after he snuck into her 15 year-old daughter's room and had relations with her. The mother tells the Herald Online he pleaded: “Please ... please do not send me to jail.'' ''I said, ‘You should’ve thought about that before you entered my home, into my 15-year-old’s bedroom. Whatever happens now, you deserve.’ I think I would’ve beaten him to a pulp. ...I wanted to. I wanted five minutes with him. I asked the officer to please give me five minutes, that’s all I wanted. And, I would’ve put him in the hospital. These are kids with no real idea of how grown-ups think and they still make bad decisions ... they don’t realize how many perverts and sick people there are. That’s why we’re here as parents ... to protect you.” The daughter and Pittman met on Kik and had been in contact for five months. The mother has confiscated her girl's phone and computer and grounded her for two months.
