"David Walter Martin Jr., 40, of Pineville"-Charleston Gazette.
I don't know if this guy was a first time offender or not. But something such news brings to mind is this: WV did not adopt everything contained in the sexual predator regulations as many other states did. Oh sure, they adopted a good deal of it; but not all. If you were a sexual predator and had to do state to state research online; WV would be one of the places you had the most freedom. When this guy gets out; WV is still a refuge for him and others like him.
WV may as well have put up a sign, no matter how many they imprison to serve their time, "Come unto us all ye that are horny and mentally ill and we will give you refuge." I can almost hear the banjos playing and the guy ready to make someone sequel like a pig.
Many such offenders, of the religious sort, are forgiven and reinstated for duty to the Lord at some point. Often they are transferred to WV. That is what religion does; move any problem somewhere else where they can "start over". They are not helping this problem any. Such a minister isn't going to get their "dream parsonage" obviously. But why in the world are they given one at all? Left in a position of trust to be tempted to violate that trust again.
Makes no sense why our government allows this. I am all for religious freedom. Worship a frog and dance naked at a nudist colony if that is what you need to find peace. I don't care. But I don't think religious freedom was intended to be extended to sexual predators allowed to do more than sit in the back after the service has started and slip out just as it closes. You may be entitled to forgiveness; but trust is a different issue when you have a disease that makes you untrustworthy.
