Avenel center determined Van Horn was a compulsive and repetitive sex offender.
Then why is he only getting 7 years?
Total bull.

This states UP to 7 years, which is a slap on the wrist and allows him to get out in no time to abuse another child. What a freakin shame they keep getting away with it.

He was really given a light sentenance for the harm done. What is wrong with DA's that let these predators walk away with a slap on the wrist. The time he has to serve is not much greater than the time he spent abusing this poor girl. SHAME on justice for this instance of neglect on the part of the DA.
