all of sandosky's friends said how great of a guy he was and he could never do anything like that....who are the dumbasses now. go f yourself you sick pc of don's shit. this was going on for years with multiple victims. if he is convicted, he will be a serial child predator and locked up for life. even if he appeals he will still be in jail where he belongs fo rthe rest of his piece o crap life. but you can still be friends with him if you like and you guys can be sick peds together. i would bet after seeing what happened with sandosky he ties to cop and plea.(word on the street is that bev is doing the same).
Well i know of a case where the child lied the man took it to jury and he said all along it never happened wouldn't take a plea,and he still got convivted and sent to prison now he sits there and the child recanted the whole story and it still didn't do any good at all.How sad a innocent man sits for something he didn't do and may never get out i'm not at all saying that this is what happened at all in this story i feel if he takes a plea hes guilty of something and he should get time its just a bad thing when children are told to say things that aren't true like in my story.If he's guilty though he will take the plea you can bet on that.

i am fully aware there are innocent people in jail. but there is alot more then you might have heard about concerning this case. the evidence is overwhelming. all will see the truth in the end. i just think its terrible their friends are bringing the girls characters into play. what they have done in their past does not replace the fact that their innocents were taken. and it is not just family hes is accused of raping and molesting.

Just wondering how he got by all this time and someone didn't report him along time ago?I think its horrible that it has went on so long to these girls and to others, if thats the case i hope they won't give him or his wife a plea deal.

“and how does this effect you?”

there are people who never get caught. There's no way to tell how many aren't reported, because well, they are not reported.

PALEASE.... DO THE RIGHT THING>>> If any of you get on a jury that has anything to do with this case... you must recuse yourself... since you've been talking about it on an open social forum... would you like to go to jail yourselves? again, another case of speaking your mind and then acting like you know the law... go ahead DO it.... I DARE you... you'll be in jail so fast your head will spin.... Redneck.. I hope you are subpeonead.... that way the court system can see what a defiant vile "PREACHER" man of god you say you are.... God help us all if other Men of the cloth are anything like you.... I'm going to wait and see the REAL evidence... not what HE SAID SHE SAID..... If you weren't in the room saw FIRST HAND then you don't know what happened... anger between family memembers happen ever day... I'm there right now... but there comes a fine line.... when it can go to far.... so let it play out in the court before you go making any more comments like you have...

I've walked these streets
A virtual stage
It seemed to me
Make up on their faces
Actors took their
Places next to me

I've walked these streets
In a carnival
Of sights to see
All the cheap thrill seekers
The vendors & the dealers
They crowded around me

Have I been blind
Have I been lost
Inside myself and
My own mind
Hypnotized
Mesmerized
By what my eyes have seen?

I've walked these streets
In a spectacle of wealth & poverty
In the diamond market
The scarlet welcome carpet
That they just rolled out for me

I've walked these streets
In the mad house asylum
They can be
Where a wild eyed misfit prophet
On a traffic island stopped
And he raved of saving me

Have I been blind
Have I been lost
Inside myself and
My own mind
Hypnotized
Mesmerized
By what my eyes have seen?

Have I been wrong
Have I been wise
To shut my eyes
And play along
Hypnotized
Paralyzed
By what my eyes have found
By what my eyes have seen
What they have seen?

Have I been blind
Have I been lost
Have I been wrong
Have I been wise
Have I been strong
Have I been
Hypnotized
Mesmerized
By what my eyes have found
In that great street carnival
In that carnival?

I've been wondering how this was going. Glad to know he got 60 years. Hope he will never know freedom again to harm another innocent child.

I am glad it over for now at least the legal stuff I know those girls are going to have it in their mine for a long time.
It ashamed they have people on the street like that I hope people who have followed this trial sit there kids down and have a good talk with them so if someone tries to bother them they will tell someone.
I find it hard Bev had any thing to do with this but she did according to what I heard
God bless everyone that has been dealing with this4723

This waste of humanity actually hired defense counsel only to plead guilty...WTF??? Like he thought having counsel would be beneficial. He should have a cell with Jerry Sandusky and let them play games with one another. Bring in their wives to clean up afterwards.

Well if you ask me they should have reported it as soon as they got out not wait forever it makes you wonder.Also i think the reason he took blame was to save his wife from going to prison very noble if you ask me.I think he was scared by the prosecuters into saying he was guilty.He looked to me to have been told what to say.I hate to disreguard what those grown women said and i mean grown but i think there is alot more to this story that people will never know because hey we wasn't there just them.So we can only speculate.If i was sexually abused as a child and never told i sure wouldn't wait till i was older and then come out with it there should be a statute of limitations.

1st off, ur not gonna admit to something so horrible if u never done it. Ur not gonna put urself nor ur family thru the embarrassment by saying u did it if u didn't. 2nd off, if u can recall through out this who case up until now there was 4 victims. N the plea bargin, that 4th case was dismissed. That 4th 1 was the reasoning all this came out. They was gonna lay at night with memories flashing thru there minds til the day they died cause they thought he had changed. Until they learned he had recently did it again to not just 1 other victim but 2. So don't go taking up for such a sick sick man til u kno what ur talking about. Maybe he did plead guilty to save bev but even still, he was thinking it would b better for just 1 to go to prison than 2. He kne he was guilty and so was she. He made both statements n the courtroom. "If bev didn't love me so much, she wouldn't b n trouble today" that's not love honey, that's she's just as sick as u r. At least we kno with him being off the streets, he won't have n e more victims.

The statute of limitations is 20 years on this kind of thing. I must say to all who are reading and posting...I believed the girls and still do, I know this is something that goes down thru generation after generation if the cycle is not stopped. Dont get me wrong, I am not condoning what he did, because as a grown man, he knew better. This breaks my heart for all of them, because they are my family. This causes such division between so many of us. Some believe as you have, that he pleaded guilty so Bev would not go to jail. My information was that was part of the bargaining which the news states there was no bargaining, so who knows on that, certainly not the public. My heart breaks for those girls, my heart breaks for his brothers and sisters, my heart really breaks for Don and Bev. I love them (yes I love them, yes they did wrong, but they are part of me) so much as I do all of my family and as I sit here and write with tears flowing down my face, I am not his judge, I am not her judge, Only God knows everything about this case. I pray that they find forgiveness with God, I pray that my family and others can now lay this issue down and all of us move on with our lives. To all of you, please dont keep the fire going, we have to let the flames die down so the smoke can clear and then we can pic up the pieces of our lives and move on. Please, I beg of you all, stop this feud and let it go, put it away and move on.

very well said tina! not sure how someone could sit back and still defend this animal after he admitted he did it! and if u were in the court room when he admitted it, he showed no remoris! not one time did he look at either of those girls nor did he appolagize! that my friend, is a very sick man! if u ask me 60 yrs isnt enough! but it does help to know he wont be able to hurt another child! bev is just as sick as he is knowing he was doing this and did nothing to stop it except offer to get him a prostitute! im sorry i just dont understand how u can back this man!

OKAY everyone.. I am ashamed.. I am humiliated and I am crushed.. I am hurt....iI am broken......I am Don's daughter. He as a man knew better. Not making excuses for him as I am SPEECHLESS...My heart breaks for everyone all of them, because they are my family and he is my dad. This causes such division between so many of us, including myself from him (as he said to me multiple times).. But God gave me one mom and one dad to which I love both very deeply.. My heart breaks for those girls, my heart breaks for his brothers and sisters, my heart really breaks for Don. I love my dad, yes I said it so all of you could read it... I love my dad...I am sorry for all the hurt he has caused and my deepest emotions have been shared with theose people who has been affected.

As I sit here and write with the deepest broken heart and tears flowing down my face, I am not his judge, I am only a daughter he "hates". All I know is that I want the girls whom I love deeply as well to finally feel loved.. cared for and at peace in their hearts and souls so they can finally move on. Only God knows everything about this case. I pray that my dad finds the "true" love of God because I don't want him to burn in hell forever... I pray they find forgiveness with God, I pray that my family and others can now put this behind them so we can all move on with our lives. Please!!!!
