He won't be locked up long enough....
People who hurt children should not get a second chance.

His sentence was 2-15 years, so he could be free in as little as 1 year. I noticed the article didn't mention which judge. I wonder if it's the same judge who let a repeat offender child molester go free.

So who decides how long he sits in jail? The judge can say 2-15, but he will get out way too soon for what he did. This child will never know a "normal life", due to one very bad decision that probably lasted all of 15-30 seconds. These judges really do just "slap hands" for terrible behaviors, as in the teen who was a repeat child molester.

Yeah! But he (loser sperm donor) and is son will have to live with the consequences for the rest of their lives. Just a sad sad story. That poor baby will never have the life he deserves.

Michigan has Truth in Sentencing, which means he will see the Parole Bd. only right before the 2 yrs. and NO ONE gets out of prison the first time they see the Parole Board.

I'd read it earlier, and yes, it is the same judge.

Get your head out of the sand! he won't do 6 mos before he is back in a half way house and maybe living next door on parole supervised by a parole officer who can't put them back in prison without numerous violations!! wake up
