One less disgusting diddler and one more toy for the boys in prison to prey on.Now he will be the loweset of the low in prison and will be punished for his sick crimes against innocent children.Good by dirtball and I hope you live through every day of your sentence.

If you know "Big Al the Kiddies Pal", you know that he is extremely intelligent and as the judge says,"calculating." I give him a year to get some young inmate to be his new little protege.
And,don't forget, he is a Karate Master. One can't help but think that he learned to defend himself in preparation for his incarceration.
Hopefully, they will keep him away from the other inmates. Not for his protection, but for theirs.

I would like to take the chance to let the world know how very proud I am of my brother. The courage he has shown has helped so many, some to begin healing and some to never be exposed to this particular predator.
I hold out hope that a case like this can bring a community together, to protect the young and keep everyone safe. If something doesn't seem right, speak up against it, don't wait for someone else to bring it up and then say "Oh, yeah, I thought something was wrong there." Perhaps if that had happened here a lot less people would have been hurt.

Where are all of Al's fans and admirers now? No rants, raves and impassioned tirades from people who thought he was so great?

For the victims voices that went unheard because of Connecticut laws, i hope you find some peace in knowing no one else can be victimized by Al while he is locked up. Praise to Pete that was able to come forward and make this his encounters public, You are my hero, I am so sorry for everything you have been through. For those who wrote letters on Aldens behalf, shame on you for turning the other cheek. Take the time you did to write you letters to research the definition of a predator and you will see Alden C. Hewett.

Justice is done....it amazed me that some people in the small hilltown of Otis actually supported this pervert....some parents even allowed their children to socialize with him in his apartment AFTER these charges were brought against him, how ignorant and irresponsible. How do you supporters feel now? I can't help but think he was "grooming" character witnesses in preperation for this trial. At least it is safe for children to ski at Otis Ridge again. I hope he is thrown into the general population...karate "master" or
not...there is always someone tougher and Karma will have it's due.

Finally!! To one who lived it for many years of watching him get away with his vile crime. Kudos to Bershire Superor Court--you did what Litchfield Superior Court refused to do.(I wonder why?) He has been doing this for years and the Town of New Hartford knew about his activities and also did nothing: they and the Litchfield Superior court should get a sentencing too!

It was very emotional listening to the very well groomed young man reading his last comments about the treatment he received from this pedophile. It was very brave of you to come forward to help other young people be aware of what is going on in this very disfuntional family life these days.It my help to wake some parents up to keep a closer eye on who their children are with and what they are doing.I only pray for saftey for our young. The sentence was not long enough.I believe these people should not be allowed in society again.

Congratulations to the county and community for finally getting this person where he belongs. It took perserverance and effort on many people's parts to get this resolved. A select group looked the other way, perhaps because of their own difficult situations, but in general, the community did not forget and did what CT. failed to accomplish. Thank you to the Berkshire county prosecuter and the heroes who came forward.

I thought most pople in Easthampton were smart. First of all, if he was 'so intelligent' why is he going to prison, secondly,his Karate skills won't mean a thing to the prison population, once they find out he has them, they get you a whole different way, like stabbing you in the back,slashing your throat when you least expect it, or just a plain gang bang busting him up, his main problem is going to be with the guards themselves. Unless he is totally isolated,the Karate Kid has met his last match.

I cannot think of a punishment severe enough for this guy. Thank god children will be protected from him for at least 15 years. I really hope others in MA come forward so he will remain locked up for the rest of his life.

More importantly though, I hope this brings the victim who brought the charges against him some closure. I hope he realizes how incredibly brave he is and that he is a special person. Thank you for doing this painful thing and protecting others from the same fate.

I grew up in New Hartford as an adolescent in the 80's. I got into alot of trouble with the law then as a juvenile. Hewett was usually one of the local cops arresting me.
I recall his firing in 1991/92. I was pretty lucky that I wasn't one of his victims, but I DO know his manipulative, fear instilling ways. He was/is a bully and a sick piece of trash. I'm really glad this has caught up to him.
