People that do these things to kids should get life with no possibility of parole. I hope that girl's dad shoots that guy.

This guy is a total loser. I agree with Allen, he deserves life with no possibility of parole. This so called "man" aslo has hepatitis. What if he gives it to this precious child? He should be charged with not only sexual assult, but also deliberatly trying to pass on a disease, that he know's he has and knows it can be contagious!! He has ruined her life of all normalcy if she catches his disease, let alone the scars of what he did.

I totally agree with the other two comments on here. that man deserves every punishment they can throw at him and then some. That someone can do that to a kid just makes me sick. maybe someone will let the other inmates know what he did. they might just give him their kinda justice.

People need to start naming known child molesters whether they are officially charged or not. Some never make it to the sex offenders registry even though everyone knows they have molested many. And molesters are both male and female. These kind of people know no boundaries.

What would make people disagree with exposing child molesters ? Are they family members, women who are sleeping the abusers and don't see anything wrong with that kind of behavior? Instead, they call young girls sluts who have most likely been sexually abused by a brother, father, uncle, stepfather. And women are not exempt from being child molesters. These kind of people are attracted to young people and cross the line by acting on their urges. And all too often victims stay silent and the abuser continues. So...why keep it a secret? Who are you helping?

I don't think anyone is against making CONVICTED sex offenders' names public. There is a big problem with making ALLEGED offenders public. Just because someone is charged, doesn't mean they are guilty. All the police need to arrest someone for molestation is a statement.
Haven't you ever been accused of something you didn't do? How would you like to be judged by friends and family, not able to get a decent job, losing your marraige or parental rights, and being threatened bodily injury everyday by strangers - even after being found not guilty?
Seeing things from a civil rights point of view does not make someone a defender of child molesters. Before you even try to accuse me of protecting them, know that I am a survivor of molestation.

All that you're saying is true but it is also a known fact that many survivors have never told who their abusers are and all too often that abuser will continue that behavior because the victims stay silent. When there is proof that an individual has been arrested, charged, convicted and put on probation but they call their victims liars...than what? In this case the abuset knows they have harmed many but their denial prevented them from getting real help. They become sex deviants in other ways, womanizers, chronic cheaters, camnot commit to any relationship so their abusive behavior continues. I am also a survivor and in order to heal the victim hou gave to talk about it. The abusers need to step up to the plate and take some resppnsibility. Sometimes telling who the abusers are is the only way to stop them because they wont stop on their own.

If a victim can shout to the world who their abuser was, they can certainly do it the right way by pressing charges. That is the only way they can be put on the sex offender registry. This is the best way to decrease the chance of them being able to offend again.

I assume than you pressed charges. But there are cases where rhe abusers are a family member and so the victim wont tell. Or, the victims tell adults assuming they will help them but they dont. Some parents, officials and even people in longhouse positions know about such abuses against young girls, or even young boys but they wont tell the proper authorities. So it isnt always as clear cut as you say. But the victims and people theyve told know who these people are and remain silent. Yes, they should have pressed charges and perhaps other victims would've been safe.

I think for the ones that are found that did do it. They should be on a island ny themselfs. Notthing is given to them .they live on from what they fine on the island .everything should be taken away. Just as they did that child.
