I am pretty sure based on the tattoo on her chest of "Only God Can Judge Me", that he is not judging her but shaking his head in shame.

Very sad, especially knowing it's a neighborhood kid. I am sorry Tatyana exercised such poor judgement and for the pain her actions have invariably inflicted on her family. This is a parent's worst nightmare and they have my empathy and compassion.

I agree with Beth - Tatyana was a sweet child growing up and I know that this terrible error in judgement has broken her parents' hearts.
