Yes, this man has problems all right! He's a danger to children for one thing! These guys get off too easy and then they do it again. Our court system obviously isn't set up to protect our children. It's set up to protect the perpetrator!

He'll serve a short time in jail, maybe. Then he'll have supervised probation. Eventually, he will do it again.

$850 for bail? Basically that judge is saying this child is worthless. Sad. What a disgrace.

As I said in my previous post, the victim will get a life sentence and this guy will get off easy.

Makes me sick.
