There is something very wrong with the dismissal of a child molester. especially a man of the cloth, someone children trust. How can this happen in this day and ag??

All I can say is that you have now been introduce to McDonald County. I'm sure there was a pencil error somewhere that got the whole thing thrown out of court. Sad, sad ordeal. I feel terrible for the victims as well as their families...and it's unfortunate to say...but I figured it would happen. My only hope is that since the legal system failed these victims MISERABLY...maybe some local residents of the area will get some of that old fashioned "vigilanty justice" if ya know what I mean!

What has happened to truth and justice. I cannot believe that child molesters are turned loose to go free.

Our prosecutor is an incompetant idiot. I am just glad they determined the little girl who was kidnapped from stella and murdered was killed in Barry County rather than Mac County. Would hate to have seen that case dropped in our prosecutors lap. She is unbelievably stupid.
