How is it legal for a law enforcement agency to advertise for victims?
Because this is exactly what this is.
You accuse a man of criminal sexual conduct, plaster his face on every news program and in every paper and ask victims to come forward!
If there are other alleged victims, they where free to come forward before now.
What makes you think that real victims would wait until now!
What do you think is going to happen?
Some Hysterics and Vigilantes coming forward with accusations to make sure this man, whom people are already convicting and for whom people are already demanding castration and death, is convicted in a court of law!

You don't look any better in your mug shot. It's not really a good venue for glamour shots.
You can't judge a book by it's cover, have you ever heard that one? Geez, grow up!

I am appalled to her this news. Not only did I see this Doctor a few times, he has seen my mother for years. Neither of us were ever offended by Dr. Marcano but to think we were confiding so many personal details of our lives to a man that is doing this, it completely reminds me that you are never too safe and you can never fully trust anyone.

Have you noticed that rumors get started by people who typically do the exact things in the rumors? Yes.
I notice that I never hear rumors about people I know. I notice that people who are bad are typically called out by "rumors".
You do realize your in denial right?
If not I suggest you get some help.
That's the pot calling the kettle black. You are the epitome of ignorance. Thank goodness you will not be the judge, the jury and allowed to deliver the verdict. In true justice, a person is innocent until proven guilty. There are very valid reasons for why people are not to be presumed guilty, as you have exemplified quite well in these postings.

I have hear more and more about people posing as teachers, janitors and people who hold respectable jobs such as a pcychologist, touching children. No wonder we have the crime we do, chidren are being abused everyday and alot of it is un herd. (I KNOW) These children have issues for the rest of theirs lives and all they can think about is hurting children. That man deserves to die for all the hurt he will have caused on that child

This guy was my psychologist, and I never had any weird feelings about him. He never tried to get close to me or anything. Of course I always had an adult with me, but he didn't strike me as the kind of guy who would do this. I never liked him, but I still don't believe he could have done something (anything!) like this.=S

The sex offender list is supposed to protect us from people like this. Oh....that's right! He wasn't on it! So much for the list. Gee..what do we do now. No protection.

Your personal powers of keeping the small details straigh will serve you well when you send him a card next Christmas.....Was it Cellblock 19 row 18 or cellblock 18 row 19?

Patient or not, so as long as someone molests "only one" that is OK now?

Even though there were no bells going off in my head when my son saw him, in this day and age anything is possible. He's pleaded guilty. Unfortunately, this kind of abuse is not unlikely. Never judge a person. Amazingly, there are ways that these kind of people are taken care of. My prayers go out to his family. This can not be easy for anyone. Thank goodness the courts will get him away from the children whom he has seen.
