if this man is truly guilty of this, he needs life without parole so he's never back out on the streets to harm another child!

dont know if guilty or not but if found guilty the justice will come to him in prison, he will not want to tell the inmates his reason for being in jail, cause they hate the child molesters and he will have to watch his back at all times. Why hasn't bail been posted yet?? Guess he didn't plant enough!!!!

Yeah, cuz this is TOTALLY the same as what the math teacher did.Or not.
It's great that people try to put other people into catagories, even if they don't quite fit.

Sexually abusing a 3 year old child for years is nowhere near having sexual relations with a sexually active and willing teen.

according to the paper it was two females,living in such a small town the girl did a brave thing to step up and say something hard to do that when its a family member who is supossed to love and protect you, not take away their child hood.... you girls did nothing wrong no matter what that creep said and did to you. How could the other family members not know that this was going on for all those years??? And if they did know then they should get the same treatment as him..... The police will get it all figured out and justice will be served to all those involved..... thank goodness the girls found the strength to tell.... You girls hold your heads up high,stay strong and be proud of who you are!!! This is not your fault......

Oh, I wasn't talking about the girls in this case. They really are victims and are very brave for coming forward.

I was commenting on Sally Rulison's comment - trying to say that this man is the same kind of person that the Math teacher who had sex with a teen girl is.

Just in case there was a misunderstanding - my apologies.:)

The kids are always the ones to suffer the most. They believe it's their fault and that people will blame them. Forget that. It's sick people who molest children, and they are solely to blame. Lock them up forever before they hurt their children even more out of revenge. These children will carry the abuse forever. Keep the sick bastard in jail.

Get over it and stop making lightly out of what has happened here. All we need is more stupid blame throwing.

My child attends school with one of the victims, and the victim has been speaking about what has been happening. Courage, this took a lifetimes worth of courage for these victims to finally be able to free themselves of a lifetime of incest/sexual abuse by their father. Unless you have walked a mile in someones shoes do not judge. May these young women get the help they need to find peace in their lives.

Why did you use the words victims, why didn't you just come out and say their names, their names were not printed to try and protect who they are. The paper was trying to protect them by saying 2 females relatives, then you have to mention it was their father. Yes with laytonville being so small its not hard to figure it all out and with the talk that is going on. I thought everything you said was right on, until you mentioned the father part. That was not your place to actually mention who the "relative" was that was doing the abusing. It makes the victims have less privacey. Even though she is talking at school. But those are just my thoughts though. Never the less jutice will come when prison time is served, they inmates hate child molesters!!!!

Actually if you were to read the local paper, it didnt hide much to the imagination as far as who the victims were, so i dont think theres many people any more who dont know who the victims are any more. Its too bad Steve wasnt caught earlier, way earlier for his crimes

yes i did read the local paper you can tell by what i said. Of course it didn't leave much to the imagination, but the kids are who they were trying to protect. I wonder how this happened for so long with out the other family members not knowing that this was happening??? This stuff happened in my family years ago, and it took years for it to come out, but it finially did and they went and spent some time in prison... I hate child molesters and people who protect them..

I hate them too. They may get what they deserve in prison. If I had 1 minute alone with any one of them, they would wish to God they never EVER did what they did. I am well into my forties and still can't get passed what happened when I was 5. I het them too.

well its not like its his first crime since the female was killed right in laytonville i bet no one linked him to that death where the girl got hammered by a real hammer well I guess I am no one to say either but it sure needs to be justice in this matter......... yes this same man was known to the conditions of the living quarters of that girl who got murdered right in laytonville. what similarity but people looked on what a crime....... its funny how people make wrong look right and doing right being wrong confused
