True Karma: Mark Barber's negative actions have come back to him. Unfortunately it has hurt his family in the process and the family can either accept the truth and move on. Or continue to spread venom on the innocent people trying to have an honest voice. That venom will only sting them back in the end as people perceive them as uncaring and having no remorse for those his father has injurred in the process. His family is not the only victims here. The victims of his crimes and their families have to endure as well.

“Mark Barber is a sexual predator who used his jailhouse power to exploit the weaknesses and vulnerabilities of the very women he was paid to help,” Rice said.“Today’s verdict ensures that this defendant will be behind the cell doors he once was trusted to guard, and that’s exactly where he belongs.”

This is from the Levittown patch and I completely agree

Karmas a bitch<quoted text>
You only know the side of him that he shows you he obviously had two completely different lives and I'm guessing your a family member just think about how you would feel if you were the one that got taken advantage of and was forced to do sexual things with a pervert you need to accept the truth and move on because it is obvious he is guilty of his crimes and you'll drive yourself crazy with denial he touched/raped/kissed/ harassed female inmates?! And if it wasn't true then how come there are so many victims? I don't know if he had a wife or girl friend but if he did then why would he do this to her? It's disgusting! He's disgusting!

Im going to be blunt here and for some reason "witness" I think you are full of shit!! I don't believe a thing you say. Were you at the trial? Did you actually see these people on the stand? Because I didn't. I know of ex corrections officers that testified but not current. So if you don't know what you are talking about don't open your stupid fucking mouth you dumb bitch!!
I don't know why you would think that this man is innocent at all I think you should wake up and realize that either way he had sex with inmates and that is disgusting he deserves everything that happens to him he is a disgusting human being and I'm not a victim and I don't think the victims are to blame they were raped and scared he used his authority to scare these girls it's disgusting to me and I wish NY still had the death sentence bc he deserves it

The alleged "victims" aren't victims at all actually. They are pathetic prostitutes that will do anything for money, or drugs for that matter!! The only disgusting thing about mark is the fact he had to affiliate himself with the dirty skanks who are accusing him of all these untrue accusations! He is one of the best men I know! And yes I know him and am proud to say it to anyone!!! As far as him needing the chair... Dude are you serious??? It was an absolute conspiracy, the prostitutes are doing it for the money!!!! If he was such a bad terrible person like you people are saying then why are they allowing him out of jail in 3 years on good behavior?? Yeh that sounds like a real bad person to me! So get over yourselves, keep his name and the family's name out of your dirty mouths, and get a life.... Thanks :)

One of the victims that made a statement at the sentencing was my girlfriend. I went with her yesterday to give her
support. This was a really sad situation for all parties present. Not just for
all the young ladies that were victims, but for Mark Barbers family as well, especially his daughters and his wife. My heart goes out to them, because they were put through all this misery and they did nothing wrong. Sadly, sending Mark to prison in my opinion does't fix or change what happened in Nassau County Jail between 2007-2010.
My Girlfreind has been clean and sober for past twenty for months, and this
whole trial has caused her to lose 20 pounds, not eat and not sleep, her hair started falling out due to the terrible stress
of the month long trial. In fact she was almost given six months in jail for refusing to answer a couple of questions while i was there in the court room, only due to the graphic nature of the questions.
Barber's attorney, Mr. Gallison; was abusive and down right humiliating during 12 and half hours he crossed examined my girlfriend. "Judge St. George reprimanded him 4 times during the trail, twice while I was there personally. Gallison rolled my girlfriends rap sheet like a long scroll across the floor to make a show in front of the jury.
He asked questions back to her 8th grade school year to destroy her credibility.
To close; My girlfriend has worked extremely hard at putting this part of her life behind her. And this whole trial has forced her to relive this whole ordeal all over again. Honest to God, is was terrible.
And remember, she did not turn Mark in, she was afraid to even consider doing such a thing, even when released. This whole thing happened because of the way Mark stalked her around the jail pulling her out of her cell at night, secret meetings, private work details. He was even caught red handed routinely moving surveillance cameras mounted in the jail, and he had her out of her cell after "night count"; which is a huge no no! ask any CO. In fact other CO's actually complained to Internal Affairs about his unusual behavior with her. Numerous CO's testified against him at the trial, that in itself is an oddity. Because of all this, 2 years after the incidents at the jail the D.A.'s office came banging on my girlfriends door and was going to Subpoena her to court for an indictment, regardless of weather she wanted to answer questions.
Finally
I hope all the girls are able to pick up the pieces and move on with their lives. And I sincerely hope Mark is able to find it within himself to know that he did wrong, how much wrong and what he did, I will never know for sure. However, I am right now willing to bet my life that he definitely violated the law in some regard. And there was truth in some these charges. I say that because I cant speak for what happened to the other young ladies involved.

PS: I know Mark was a volunteer firefighter, and according to many a decent man, farther, friend and co-worker. But even good people break the law. As I stated above I Will put my LIFE on the line that he broke the law!! In fact
I personally I have seen the evidence. But its over and done, And all should try to do their best and move forward with their lives.
God Bless to all!!

And they can be sexual deviants. It has been seen in the church to many times, and I am a practicing catholic. I do not believe that 5 years in prison is going to fix anything. Whats done is done, and I hope all can move forward with their lives.
God Bless to all!!
