Hey Joshua... Keep your mouth shut and clench your back end. You are in for some "hard" time. Enjoy your time in the infirmary.

I hope this man gets anger management counseling also. It should be mandatory that he is not allowed to be around children when he is released.
Good to hear

Who the hell reports this stuff??? I'm thinking you need a college degree to get a job at the PP, right? Elk River, WI???? Sherburne Country? The St. Cloud Times? Elk River, WI - REALLY??? And, Assistant Sherburne County Attorney Suzanne Bollman said Emery apologized to victim's the victim at the sentencing hearing....to victim's the victim??? New language? Derived from what planet???

Good for that Judge, He did the right thing. We need more Judges like him. If that was someone pet that criminal would I have had the book thrown at him. We must start protecting innocent children from Mad Men and Mad Women. Children are the future of this great country and we want them to be Emotionally Stable.

Thank goodness it was WI. In Hennepin or Ramsey County he probably would have gotten a year in the workhouse since he didn't kill the toddler.

His fellow inmates are gonna love to find out what he did. You reap what you sow you big coward! 3 YEARS OLD! Who could do that? That poor little baby. This makes me sick to my stomach.

Ok, first off the Pioneer Press got the by-line wrong. The Sherburne County Courthouse is in Elk River, Minnesota. Wisconsin had nothing to do with this case.

Second, this guy will not be treated well by the other inmates. Prisoners that are incarcerated for mistreating children are the lowest of the low.

Anyone who abuses a little innocent child, is NOT even a human being, they are a piece of garbage! How could anyone do such a thing!!

Yes, when he gets to the prison, he will get his - dirty low life!!!

Just hope the child will fully recover.

You all think when a pervert comes to the big house that others here are going to take him down for what ever he did to get here. We don't care and we ain't DOC employees. Fact is that most like this guy are ugly or will fight if somebody wants a little booty. there are so many in here who want it and are "cute" and know how to please a guy so why fight for it ? Now if he runs his mouth like a snitch if he ever knows anything about anybody in here then we have our own Inmate DOC that staff knows very little about, then he will be corrected.
