This man needs to be sent directly to the firing squad, not rotting in a cell. A few moments in relentless pain and agony is minute compared to what these young girls will suffer for the rest of their lives. A waste of taxpayer dollars to even feed this scum.

It's hard to believe that these crimes are not punishable by death. They deserve no less punishment.

The lesson for such people is that they should not allow their victims to live. Dead girls tell no tales.
This is what I've never figured out about the courts. Why they give some murderer 20 or 30 years and let them go after 15 years or so and why rapists or molesters get 600 years. I suppose you'll all say I'm a terrible person, stupid, and sick, etc.--but how is it better for criminals to just kill people and bury them someplace instead of abusing victims and letting them go? Also, why does the same crime get you a death sentence in one state and 15 years in another state? Don't say it doesn't happen in just that exact way either.
There's something very wrong going on.
I don't really care what they do with this guy I suppose. He won't be able to rob or kill me or mine where he's going.

And when Purvis complains or asks for help they might 'help' him by putting him in solitaire confinement for awhile. He will be one rape victim who gets little therapy not comprised of the same treatment as needed. Or maybe he'll be demonstrating his techniques for rape to younger, weaker prisoners. Maybe to your nephew or grandson who's stepped over the line and done something stupid in his youth. Who knows what evil lurks...

I applaud these courageous kids! I wish their stolen childhoods could be given back. I hope they find some comfort knowing that their courage along with police and prosecutors who listened to them will help end the cycle of abuse.

Will newspapers ever stop referring to the premeditated sexual abuse of kids as a "relationship?" That's what perpetrators often tell their victims to keep them trapped in guilt, shame and self-blame.

"Defendant Deshon Jamil Purvis was convicted......for using a 14-year-old girl with "whom he had a relationship" and pimped for sex to abduct a 16-year-old Long Beach girl, who was repeatedly raped and forced into prostitution.

And this is only what they caught him doing. The rest of the story would be worse. He should be tortured on pay-per-view.

It always saddens me when I hear about one of our, Peaceful, Fun Loving, Generous African American Brothers gone Astray. He probably wasn`t treated well as a child, plus what a burden it must be to carry around the Knowledge that a mere 250 years ago his people were forced into Slavery.Perhaps it is Societies fault for making such a Peaceful people turn into Sub Human Trash because Whitey has opressed and ignored the plight of our Kind and Loving African American Brothers.I believe they are just misunderstood.

Good riddance to rubbish. I'm sure he's going to have lots of fun in general pop. They don't take kindly to child molesters and rapists. I suppose in this case he falls under both categories.

200 years sounds about right. Have fun in the slammer. And I hope you get raped a whole bunch in jail. Adios.

Did anyone miss the fact that the 16 year old girl was DITCHING SCHOOL to go smoke marijuana? This would not have happened if she would have just stayed in school. Stay in school, kids.

Please tell me you were joking and being sarcastic when you wrote this. This dude is sick and twisted. I hope the prisoners end up doing the same to him.

I definitely agree with you on that. Also, don't go to peoples houses you don't know, a friend isn't a friend if they put you in a uncomfortable situation.

Pimps like him assume this: Girls who ditch school and smoke weed are already "streetwise" and accept being pimped as the next step in their disfunctional lives. But once in a while a girl "on the fence" knows what just happened is wrong and reports the guy. There must be other victims, seems like he's done this before.

....glad to see LBPD did their job. as a mother of a missing LB teen,(which incidentally she wasn't going to Compton to smoke pot) the horror the victim and her family will and has endured cannot be consoled by this animal's 200yr sentence.
