$18,500.00 Come on Terry you need to do better than that to hold him in there. This creep has no business out running the streets for no reason.

I agree...this should be a lock him up and throw away the key situation. I dont get it at all...20 kids? Where the h*** are the parents? Why do teens have no sense of personal pride anymore? Drinking its bad...but I try to think Im not old...so I kinda get it...but letting a creepy old dude watching them have sex...ewwww.

The creep should be booked in a cave for life. But Should these 20 individuals really be called kids ? I don't think so, they have a developed brain and they know enough what is wrong from right. Why should they not be booked for consuming alchohol voluntarily ?

this is truly sick and whats worse is the bond set by the judge, 12% of that gets him back on the streets, that means if each kid comes up with $110.00 their party can continue. If a kid is got money for alchohol and drugs, how long you think it will take for them to pitch in and bail him out.

???WHY??? If they cared they would know where there kids are.You can't tell me they had a 12 year old daugther they would leave her go to a place they didn't know about.Yes this guy should be in jail for life. But don't put all the blame on him.Each one of those parent did to be arrested for let there kids go there.But it much easier for parents to blame this man. I think if I was a judge I take these kids out of there homes because they are unfit parents.

Ok so he hosted a party, gave teens alcohol and watched them have sex... what exactly did he do wrong again? No, seriously I do NOT see a problem with this whatsoever. Oh it's "shocking" yes but not a soul was hurt as the report did not mention anyone being molested nor did anyone die from an alcohol overdose nor did anyone get in their cars and drive off and kill someone because they were drunk.

My god people need to grow up.

No matter what you do, teens will always be stupid! Offer them booze or drugs and they will follow anybody!! I guess it is the age of stupidity.

There should be NO BOND... this is his second offence! Once a pedophile always a pedophile!
