There are conflicting stories, but what we do know is that not only was Cody involved with a 16 year old girl, the girl has a 12 year old cousin that somehow also caught Cody’s eye.
Cody’s version of events is that the three were playing “truth or dare” when the girlfriend dared him to have sex with her barely teenaged cousin. The 16 year old claims she didn’t dare or ask Cody to do anything. The parents of girl claim to have found condoms in the room she was sharing with the 12 year old girl, and that she admitted to having sex with Cody on three different occasions. They claim there are “stains on the mattress” and Blankenship denies ever being with the younger girl, police believe they were together twice.
Mark Gowers, Cody’s father, is defending his son, “I know my son wouldn’t do anything. I mean, I wouldn’t be sitting on camera saying if I had a doubt, but I have no doubt whatsoever. My son would never do nothing like that.”
There is no mention of Cody’s relationship with the 16 year old which in the state of Ohio is legal, but he has been charged with two counts of child molestation.
