The child pays for the rest of his life, while the abuser gets a 5 year vacation.

Where is the justice in *that*?

Forget the "he'll get his in prison" cr@p. Kill him in the same manner as the abuse. There is no place in this world for those that would intentional hurt children.

People who abuse children do not deserve to live. I really hope somebody takes care of him in prison.

Jared Patton is my nephew. Instead of focusing on hating his father, try to pray for the health of our baby. God will handle justice and make sure he gets what he deserves. Jared is a strong loveable Survivor!! He is a miricale baby and he is here to remind people to live for the simple things in life and to simply LOVE!!!

My husband sexually abused my children and I had my suspicions, but no proof.
Then when my daughter turned 19 she told me of the abuse and I asked her if she wanted to report it and she said yes. So we called the sheriffs dept. and they took a written statement from my daughter and myself. Then since my 16 year old lived with my ex in a different county (yes the courts gave my abuser my children )we notified volusia county DCF and the case worker accused my daughter of lying and myself of being drunk. So I really don't think there is help for abuse victims.
This is a man that beat me for 15 years, molested my children and they treat me like I am the problem.
This man ruined my children's lives and mine. Took my children and moved them 140 miles away without my knowledge or consent. He also took our family indoor dog and tied it in the yard for 1 1/2 years with no vet care. Finally the kids brought the dog back they felt so sorry for it.
Through all of this I was treated like a unfit Mom even though I have never been in any legal trouble and was a stay at home mom.
Abusers are manipulater's and you would think the courts would be experts at seeing that. But no whomever has the best Attorney wins. Oh and if you think there is free Attorney's for the poor you are wrong.They are so busy that they will deter you from using them by saying "Oh you spanked your children before? The Judge is'nt gonna like that"! It's all bullshit about abuse no one really gives a shit. It's not there life or children.

Erin if he is really your nephew where were you when he cried for help, where were you that you could not protect him from such an evil person, why are you asking for help, when you didnt even made a move to protect this child. For me you are a two face

I've read many books on child abuse and I hate it! I'm doing a research report and my topic is "Should there be a mandatory sentencing for child abusers?" I think there should be because no matter how bad it is the people are still hurting them!
