"Ten years is a light sentence for what you did to them emotionally," the victims' father said.

Amen to that.

And the idiots who continue to support this disgusting human being ought to be right in jail with him.

I am so sick of people coming forward saying rapists, murderers and lowlifes are "great people" or "they went to church" whoopedy-frieakin-do! Just because someone attends church does not mean they are a good person. Wake up and protect your children.

What if he is a cuck and enjoyed watching his wife was having fun with bulls including those kids? That sounds more like it though. They aren't a family-next-door type people like you would imagine, you know what I mean if you live in the same neighborhood. I was wanting them to move out before her arrest, and my wish is now more valid and reasonable.

HAYWARD - A 72-year-old Livermore man was sentenced Tuesday to 10 years in state prison for molesting two children several years ago.

In a plea deal with the Alameda County District Attorney's Office, Jerrold Rittmann pleaded no contest to two counts of lewd and lascivious acts on a child under age 14. Rittmann originally faced 20 child molestation charges.

Judge Kevin Murphy also ordered Rittmann to register as a sex offender after he is released.

In the summer of 2007, a woman and her sister told Livermore police they had been abused for six months in 1997 by Rittmann, whose relatives watched the girls at his home. Rittmann was arrested that September.

At the time of his arrest, Rittmann owned a financial services business, and is a retired Lawrence Livermore Laboratory employee and a retired music teacher.

At the hearing in the Hayward Hall of Justice, the parents of the victims said their daughters - who were 5 and 9 when they were molested - have been forever changed by Rittmann's actions.

"Ten years is a light sentence for what you did to them emotionally," the victims' father said.

It is Bay Area News Group's policy not to name victims of sexual abuse. By extension, the parents' names are being withheld to protect the victims' identities.

Police identified another victim, but that case was not charged because of statute of limitations had expired

This guy is a real piece of s h @ t! The only support he has is from family. One of them tried to justify his actions b/c he was in the "Cold War and served his country". Little did they know pops was a child molester! Like he is gonna come out and tell his family and not hide it. I hear he gave everyone the creeps. To his supporters, what if it was your Daughter that was abused? Different story huh?

What blows my mind is that his wife still stands by him as does most of his children.

And to Steve B... his supporters still stand by him even though he he did what he did to one of his own.

Everyone is so harsh on this guy and when it comes to Christine Hubbs, bloggers are split down the middle. I have heard the boys aren't victims in the Hubbs case. Not many people will say Hubbs is a horrible person.

This guy is scum of society, but Christine Hubbs is equally a predator. And her Husband supports her, so he is a piece of Sh*t also.

**I am not saying anyone of you would support Hubbs, just highlighting that in the Hubbs blogs, it's split and here everyone says this guys is a turd. Just wish the double standard would go away.**
