This state is absolutely disgusting on how they hand out sentences to criminals. I'm not saying everyone needs to go to jail, but this guy is a piece of cr*p. Anyone who would do something like this, regardless of how high or drunk they were should be punished. The poor victim and the family gets no closure because the victim has to deal with this for the rest of her life and he only has to deal with it for 5 months? How is this at all fair. Judge Howard, shame on you! I bet that if this were your relative you would be jumping up and down demanding the book be thrown at him. No but instead you continue to hand out ridiculous sentences that welcome pedophiles, rapists and drug dealers into VT.

Maybe if this state took bad criminals seriously, then we wouldn't have the same idiots re offending over and over and over and over. How many victims must suffer at the hands of lazy, stupid and even immoral judges who refuse to do there jobs. It is just unbelievable to me that out of a 20 year sentence someone is given 5 months. Totally unreal. If you go over the boarder to NY and get caught driving under suspension you get arrested, car impounded, tons of fines and jail time. In VT you get a ticket and a pat on the back. They need to revamp the whole damn system in VT. Liberals have made this state into a safe haven for themselves, and all the scum of the earth who now skate by on the liberal laws they passed to protect themselves and their family. Thank you for that! You get off easy, but let everyone scum of the earth in to rob, steal, rape and murder the rest of the public. Job well done!

The real crime here is the suspended sentence for "time served". Very little consequence for horrific actions.

Briere had testified that she feels Blair is immature and self-focused, and working with disadvantaged people might benefit him"

I don't thing it is a good idea to have a sex offender working with disadvantaged people.

People who prey on kids-should be locked up and the key thrown away. Study after study after study and report after report indicate that this type of behavior never goes away. Oh, it may be hidden for a while-but it eventually pops to the surface and some times with deadly results.

The judge in this case shoud be "disrobed" period!!!!

Facebook terms and conditions say that you may not use the service if you are a convicted sex offender.

He is darn lucky he is not being charged with theft of services.

I guess a Blair can molest a CHILD. That is sick. I remember when a young girl got 2 to twenty years for a car accident, with no deaths. It was a Blair that was hit. I just think the justice system should be looked into. The girl was sentenced because of publicity and probably not enough money to get a good lawyer. How sad. From what I understand that accident was not even close to as bad as the one three people got KILLED. Only 6 months there. Please explain how there can be such a difference in what kind of sentence people get. Does running for public office make a difference. Maybe the 300,000 the people loved from insurance. WHATEVER THE CASE IT IS SAD AND WRONG.

Seeing he is in Vermont he will probably get more time for violating his probation that the original charge which Vermont happily suspended. Why did the court even waste the time to prosecute him and put the victim through it?

This is another case of slapping a repeat offender on the hand- this man keeps reoffending, again this man keeps reoffending- addiction will not be handled by an ankle monitor- make this person go to recovery meeting- they are everywhere- 1 or 2 a day- the only way to any chance of helping him (anyone).
"Oh now I am ready to change" defense has been worn out by this man- time to give him a dose of reality!!

Concerned you just don't get what they were saying do you? A Blair of any color is a Blair. Thats a fact. Why is it so hard for you to understand? Now on your rebuttal which makes no sense, ALL men are pigs or ALL women are B**ches or ALL teens are delinquents, where is the comparison? I do know that ALL female dogs are B**ches and ALL teens are juveniles. Those are facts.
