Jury selection complete, two names chosen:
Smith and Wesson.
Any questions? No, good, let the punishment commence.

This is how punishment for crimes like this would be handled if I were king for a day.

What is wrong with the parents that let their kids go to a scout leaders cabin for overnights. Thats
creepy. Any adult that like to spend that much time with children (not his) I would be watching all the time.

Minnesota laws are too lax, on murder, sex crimes and hate crimes. What will it take to enforce better laws. People are killing there own children and only getting minimum sentences,it will only get worse from here.This guy probably won't do any time, just treatment like the 20yr old that exposed himself to your neibors 8yr old daughter.Treatment brought to you by your Taxes.

I am not surprised. In fact, I have come to almost expect this type of behavior from a certain section of our population, who tend to always be the offenders of this type of crime.
