It's a travesty to justice that this creep is being offered a plea agreement. It's a travesty to abuse against women and children that this creep is being offered a plea agreement. There is no polite words to describe the mentality of those who would offer this creep a plea agreement. And the family is an enabler and abetter, so where's the charges for them?

Shame on Mary Lynne Newell- voters remember this come election time.

This is a joke to her.

For the family, you need to be tried and convicted of child abuse-

"Of course there is" is what I thought when I read the headline. And of course.....let's not do anything with this case until after the first of the year. What kind of logic is that?

The DA's office is a complete joke.
and not a very funny one, either.

...and some pretty poor writing to top it off.
What are the TERMS of the plea agreement? What is this creep getting away with? Just what could the punishment be?

This man was my stepdaad for a large portion of my life and he never ever ever was inappropriate with me. I am not making a judgement one way or the other, just stating a fact. The law is clear on innocent until proven guilty not the other way around. If he did this he needs to be punnished to the fullest extent of the law, but let's not be too quick to hang the man until it is proven that this is the case.

When did the child abuser,the rapists,the murderers,and the child porn lookers, get more rights then the victims. Has anyone really thought about it. They get 3 meals, a shower, and they even get their own work out stuff and all they have to worry about is dropping the soap in the shower. When the poor victims have to live with feeling of being dirty the rest of their life. When will people start looking out for the victims and stop worring about the scum of the world. Let him rot in prison with a pink outfit on and a sign that will say "I LIKE TO TOUCH LITTLE KIDS"!!!!!!! In the old days if someone did this they would have been hanged.

1998 the Govenors Office, FBI, Silver City police department, DA office, the judge, and alot of lawyers were told what he was and they didnt listen. They could have stopped all of this if they would wake up and fight for the people and not the scum. One said he was crazy,a molester, or a murder and they did nothing. So when they turned their backs on the people that is when Hell on earth began. IF we dont stand up and fight for the victims all we will be doing is saying that no matter what they do nothing will ever happen to them. Yes he is guilty of much and has yet paid for anything he has done.

Apparently it hasn't occurred to most of you that by offering a plea bargain, the victim is saved the trauma of having to get onto the witness stand in open court, testify in detail about the abuse she suffered, and be cross-examined by the attorney for the defense. If you were truly concerned about the victim, maybe you'd give that some thought.

I hope he takes the plea.. then some justice will be served and maybe the victim can move on with her life..

Apparently, he was secretly recorded on audio tape admitting to the abuse. He also suggested that he didn't think there was anything wrong with his behavior, that it was completely natural. You should be very grateful that you were not a victim of his abuse.

I feel like I was clear that I did not lean one way or the other on this matter. Of course if he did these things I would be thankful that myself or my sisters did not have to endure it. Who wouldn't be? My heart would break for the girl. Nobody should ever have to live that way. However, I am a firm believer in the justice system and feel that it is important that nobody for whatever the crime, be convicted before proven guilty. It really has nothing to do with him or the case, but if we allow this to happen, what happens to the person that is innocent and has their name destroyed over accusations. It happens more often than you would think, and is very easy for someone to destroy other peoples lives by making accusations. I have seen it first hand. I am in no way saying that is the case here.

I think the Sun News is not doing a very good job of follow up on this story. Will there be a trial or no trial?
