you guys have nothing better to do then go on the computer and put tom down. Its almost funny. You hate him? fine hate him. But dont go putting the rest of his family down. Ive known the family for years, and the family did not know. You guys talk like you know what your talking about? Wait till the next big story and all your obessive judgemental ways will forget about tom and youll cry about the next person. How about you live your lifes and focus on yourselfs.

Greeneyes... "bought" him out trouble? how about you learn the facts before you type. His family is NOT responisble for his actions, and anyone who believes that is so foolish, and must not have a family of their own.

His poor family??!!! Are you serious? What a pathetic joke! They ENABLED this monster, and in my eyes, that makes them all accessories. I have spoken to quite a few folks that plan to not only plan to boycott the two PG and the Carmel Stores, but I have heard talk of actually picketing outside. As far as the throwing stones comment, I would bet there are a few quarries out there that have Pollaci written all over them.

You have got to be kiddng me!!!, they didn't know??? Did they some how for get about his conviction for sexual assault in "92" or that he was on the county's registered sex offender web site,I grew up in PG and we all knew that this guy was a monster, this verdict has been a long time coming and delayed for far too long, I'm glad that all of the real "Jane Doe's " finally had the courage to come forward and put this guy away, he should have been locked up for life a long time ago!!! The only person that will be crying here is Tommy on his first night in the Big House (Love to be a fly on that wall), You're also wrong about another thing, the citizens of our community will not forget this any time soon!!!!

SIN = Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed and Sloth.

If any one of you is without SIN, let him be the first to throw a stone....

What ever happened to the centi-million dollar stolen art collection of the East-Coast radiologist and his boyfriend? Big scandal for 4 weeks, and then nothing since?

I thought the local law was threatening to get the couple for fraud?

I'm happy he was convicted. I heard he was a rapist 25 years ago and stopped patronizing Ron's Liquors so I would not be in harms way. I'm sorry for all his victims, maybe he will now be a victim of rape in prison. I wonder how he will like it.

Two wrongs don't make a right. However, he will get his due.

The family did not know. Are you nuts? He was arrested time and again. Was convicted twice. Had a number of them paid off and his family just kept supporting him. They might be "nice" but they aren't clueless.

Thankfully fear, money and prestige didn't get him out of the rape charge. I hope his latest Jane Doe wins BIG BIG BIG money in her suit against the store and his family!

If a son of mine had Tommy's problems I certainly wouldn't support, employ and house him, I would seek out professional help in an attempt to keep him from harming women. Sometimes even rich kids need tough love.

Big hugs for all the Jane Does who came forward to testify! That must have been very difficult for you all. May your testimony and his conviction help you continue to heal. You are all brave survivors!

To the Jane Doe who didn't testify, I am sorry if this brought up bad memories of your last testimony, I do not blame you at all for not wanting to go through that again! It is such a disgrace how survivors of rape are often treated by the defense!

Thank you to all Jane Does for making the peninsula a safer place.
