there is absolutely no reason for an adult male to have little girls having sleepovers at his house. This man wasn't actually a relative and I would have never allowed this.

What are you 12???? I hope you dont have any children. No man, no matter how nice, should ever have little girls slppeing over at his house. Period.
A paretn saying..." well, he seemed nice" is how a childs nightmare begins. Youre an idiot

It doesn't take a sleepover for this sort of thing to happen - my parents thoroughly trusted an elderly neighbor couple when I was growing up, and that man molested basically every girl on the block...including me. Parents are not perfect. Molesters pass themselves off as trustworthy people who parents can easily leave their kids with for a little while. My abuse went on for years, and my parents never knew 'til they were going to invite him to my wedding. That was when I finally had the nerve to tell them. Unfortunately, it was then too late to legally do anything to the guy. Children are shamed into thinking things like their parents will not believe them.

Not all parents do believe their kids, even if they tell... and there are some who do believe but simply do not care. The world is littered with kids who women sacrifice for the men they say they love(it really has nothing to do with love)... its disgusting.

I am really sorry for these children and their families but at least in this case these kids weren't abused by a parent and these kids know their parents love them.

you dont know the whole story bud. Like someone said it does not even have to be a sleep over in his mind it happened anytime but he liked the scary movies so the girls would be scared?????? you better get facts straight before you say anything. You dont know what that devil did to those pooor girls. he is the devil. He better get his when it is over. If his family dont relize what the devil did to those girls after listening to closing argument there is some thing wrong with them. remermber this is not first time for his second time around.
