On Saturday, January 20th, a 20-year-old North Platte man was arrested under suspicion of being in an intimate relationship with a 15-year-old girl.

Authorities responded to the report of a 15-year-old girl who ran away from her home shortly before midnight and that she was possibly with suspect, Cole Picotte, near the 1900 block of W.4th Street.

According to the North Platte Police Department, the two individuals weren’t located immediately but officers made contact with the two later that evening.

An investigation determined that there was probable cause to arrest Picotte for being in an intimate relationship with the female juvenile. Officers arrested Picotte and charged him with 1st Degree Sexual Assault and Contributing to the Delinquency of a Minor.

Picotte was booked into the Lincoln County Detention Center.

      Nope. IF he is found guilty.. around here it seems more guilty till.. well, you’re on here so your name is tainted till you leave the area.

      But if found guilty which with our dirty as hell NP police helping out, he’ll get maybe 2-3 years. Serve maybe 1+. The NP police will convince the 15 yo that she had sex with him that time they walked down that street.. after some word twisting. Yes, I know how the police in this town work, and its sloppy at best… just like the news outlets writers. The typos on these pages make the sites mostly comical.

      Only in a podunk area such as this, is this news.. poorly written news to boot.

        Thank you captain judgey. NPPD works hard and I’m certain yes they make some mistakes but to call them sloppy or imply corruption is ignorant at best. Glass houses friend.

    I think they need to start charging the girls with something too.. why just the guys? Too much of this goes on in NP & nothing ever happens to the females (or their parents].. Just sending the guys to prison doesn’t teach the lil’ ho’s anything, they just move on to the next dumb a**!!!

      I agree that the females should have to bear some of the responsibility. I know of a case a couple of years ago where a girl lied about her age and when the guy found out he stopped the relationship. That didn’t matter. The female even testified that she lied and he still got sent away for 3 years. With that said, Cole knows what will happen when he is caught.

      Laws need to be changed there needs to be consequences on both sides!.obviously from the looks of his neck she knew wat she was doing nd im sure it wasnt her 1st time!.girls these days think they can sleep around n the dark but when their secret comes to lite its all the guys fault they get charged nd their lives ruined but the girl goes on sleeping around to the next guy!.just like those boys who spent 6 months n jail for some girls lieing they got raped…charges were dropped nd they lost out of 6 months of their lives nd their kids lives. Parents be more observant of ur kids!

        The laws are strict liability; your gender does not matter. If a 20 year old woman has sex with a 15 year old male, then she will be found guilty of the same offense…it has nothing to do with them both being “at fault,” but rather the law affords protection to those it sees as “incompetent” to make informed decisions; hence the “age of majority.” There must be a bright line — you can’t allow lawyers to argue “she knew better;” “no she didn’t;” each and every case.

    well from the the size of the hickey on his neck looks like it was consentual to me…. these dumb kids dont think about it and then get busted… at the age of 20 a young boys brain doesnt think about the consequenses and im sorry most of these 15 yo girls dont look or act like 15 yo girls…. i just dont think this kid should have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life becuase he made a mistake and dated a younger girl… and yes i have girls and boy they were all informed of all the whats and whys of dating and i also told my kids that when they chose to date older guy it could cause some serious issues later in life .. and my son knows better than to date a younger girl…. but that doesnt mean they always listen ….. biggest thing is … talk to your kids … make sure your girls have positive male role models becuase this is what happens when they dont

    Really makesmoresense? If you don’t know what your talking about- DON’T TALK! She has a positive male role model- her father! But since you know so much about the situation why don’t you just tell us all about it? Judgmental ass! Since they don’t make perfect children, lets just blame the parents right? Grow up!

    Being the adult in the situation it is his responsibility to make adult decisions. I don’t think that a 15 year old girl can make adult decisions. He has obviously been around the block- and made very poor choices. Which carry adult consequences. My heart goes out for his parents, as well as hers.
