He is still here because the DA didn't prove that he had prior strike convictions for molesting kids back in 2006. If they had, we wouldn't be having to go through this now.

"According to Deputy District Attorney Arnold Klein, who is prosecuting Nothnagel at trial, on at least one occasion, Nothnagel tied up the child, and on another occasion, threatened to kill him if he told anyone. The 11-year-old later told authorities Nothnagel told him,“You better not tell or I'll kill you. I'll hunt you down,” Updegrove read from a police report. Nothnagel was committed to prison to serve a 16-year sentence. He was released from prison after 8 years.

He should have gone away forever in 2006. Why did the DA allow this plea bargain in 2006 when this guy tied up a child molested him and threatened to kill him. This is just sickening.

Add the count of "kid napping" or "making a terrorest threat" or is there a limitation statute on these crimes?...

What happened in 2006? Was his conviction a trial outcome, or was the case pled? How many times has the DA's office taken him to trial for a new crime, as opposed to having a trial on the issue of being a sexually violent predator?
How many times has he been given deals which included dropping strikes?
If such deals happened, wny? Who?

The theory on a slow painful death contradicts your bullet.

If he is incapable of not re-offending, then he needs to stay locked up. Always.
If he likes boys so much, he can have a ton of them in prison. Or vice versa.

Ah so, another wonderful job by the wonderful legal system.
he would be very unfortunate if he had ever messed with my kids.
I do not talk the talk, I walk the walk.
He would have been gone a long time ago.
I find it hard to believe some family member at some time hasn't
at least made an attempt to get rid of him.
Oh well, you go legal beagles, you do such a good job.

I heard that other inmates hate child molesters...Maybe the prison guards should turn a blind eye and let the inmates "tie him up'' and tell him that they'll kill him if he tells anyone...an eye for an eye in this case!

Let me pass on one thing to you self styled protectors of children. Do you understand that it is your very attitude which keeps kids to scared and afraid of coming forward with these things when it happens to them? It is exactly that which kept me from stopping it from happening to me. I knew I could not trust the adults around me to act in a, well, adult manner. Killing is surely too good for these molesters, but there is the other side of the coin, the important side, what helps the child recover as well as possible. The sooner the child feel safe from violence (and that is what molestation is all about) the sonner the child can try working to come close to a normal life. I know I could care less what happened to the POS who molested me...karma is real. But what I did care about was the fear of the reaction of those who were supposed to be protecting me.

Comments such as these on this article are WHY children remain afraid to come forward. So, please try and thing about your words before commenting...while you believe you are "helping" you are not...you are actually making the issue worse for the children involved as well as others who have yet to reveal that their life has been stolen from them.

So, from personal experience I can tell you the last thing a child wants is for the events to be brought back up and more violence. Every time the event(s) are brought up it brings back very painful memories causing long depressive states or worse. These kids are in for a lifetime of anger and frustration.

Just thing these things through...and maybe put your energy into improving the ability of children to safely come forward and heal.
