Billy Bob's Son Alleged Sex Crime Victim

4/30/2008 12:59 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Willie ThortonLaw enforcement sources tell TMZ Billy Bob Thornton's son is at the center of a criminal investigation -- the alleged victim of "unlawful sex."

Here's what we know. Willie Thornton, age 14, was dating a 22-year-old woman. Her ex-boyfriend apparently became jealous. Sources say the ex called the LAPD, informing them his former GF was having sex with a minor.

Law enforcement sources tell us there is an "active investigation" into the crime of "unlawful sex" -- translated, an adult having sex with someone under 18. We're told Willie is cooperating with the sex crimes unit. And, we're told, cops have also interviewed Billy Bob.

BTW, the picture was taken four years ago.

What's with all of the women pedifiles latley? Why would you want a little boy, men are immature enough at 30! Hey, maybe it isn't much different than a grown man? They play video games, eat Cap'N Crunch for dinner, leave crap all over the house, expect that their laundry will be done, whine and cry until they get the newest "toy", and even need the food wiped off of their faces once in a while. Hmmmmmmm..........

TMZ wow a new low for you givng the name and image of a sexal assault victim you get bonus points for the fact that the victim is a CHILD. Seriously Havey Levin what is wrong with you? Perhaps you could use the piles of cash you are making from this website to hire someone to be your conscience since it is clear you do not have one of your own. I would say I can't imagine you stooping any lower but I am sure you will find a way.

TMZ, it's bad practice to publicize the name, photo and family information about a minor who's alleged to have been sexually exploited. The child deserves to have his privacy respected. Don't do this. You're violating an established code.

"To Tammy: First of all, It's TMZ not TMS. Second of all, if you read closely TMZ received the information from "law enforcement sources" meaning someone within the department is leaking the information. To those of you questioning TMZ's integrity for posting this story: I laugh at all of you because I highly doubt that a 14 year old is willingly having sex with his girlfriend is a "victim". Yeah, it's disgusting that a 22 year old is dating a 14 year old but it doesn't necessarily mean she's forcing him to do anything he doesn't want to do. Do you remember what your hormones were like at 14? This girl can't be the brightest considering she's dating a 14 year old. She was probably hoping to get close to his dad! "

Okay Anne maybe you just are not the sharpest pencil in the box or something, but when someone is under 18 they are considered a MINOR and thus having sex with that MINOR as an ADULT would in fact be against the law!! Therefore, the CHILD is the victim of statutory rape! That is not to say, however, that he was forced into having sex, but as he is a CHILD he lacks the proper judgement and foresigtht that is needed in making decisions of this nature. Decisions such as having sex with an adult.

If some adult slept with your 14-year-old daughter I highly doubt that you would be denying that she is a victim. Just because he has a penis does not mean that it is okay regardless of what he thinks. Adults are supposed to know better. What she is did was not only dumb, but also gross, demented, and illegal. Don't minimize!

I have actually met this kid in Disneyland for his sister's 4th birthday party at Club 33... my personal assessment is that he could totally rock a 22 year old and so what if he does?! He's not 7, he is a teenager and she is in her early 20's. This is not a case of pedophilia! Yes, they were careless and used poor judgement and this is never something I would engage in, but let them have fun while they are young (she might be able to teach him something).

Ooooo Noooo!    

It's all about control. An adult woman calls all the shots when "doing" a young boy, almost like playing with a doll, something real men would never put up with. It sure is not about the sex. Think about it. How long does a 14 year old last-- 1 minute? -- if that long.

#16 Annie it is more than disgusting for a 22 year old to have sex wih a 14 year old CHILD it is criminal. A CHILD can not give cosent to have sex. What she did was illegal and as a child and alleged victim of a sexual crime he deserves to be protected the fact that he is a boy(rather than a girl) and his father is an academy award winner should not allow him to be exposed to what s sure to be a humilating and painful process.

You guys are getting worse! You should never publish the name and picture of a minor who may be the victim of sexual abuse. I don't care who his father is. Shame on you!
