I assume he did not serve any time because of the medical situation he is in.. a jail or prison simply does not have the medical equipment needed for someone in this shape. They will not pour the money needed into prisoners in bad / poor, health / physical condition.

no i have to disagree they have sent them to prison at 80 or older cancer etc him being a triple amputee if anyone knows him he could just about do anything you could do and undoubtedly he can do anything even rape or leave it to the imagination which most of us can/t comprehend

I don't understand this at all! Where are the adults in the court system that are suppose to be protecting this boy? He finally decides to tell what happened and the person who did this to him is not even punished. This is sending a message to others that are afraid to tell what is happening to them that even if they do tell nothing will happen. And this mans wife is a teacher. How many other boys did this man abuse?? If there are more they will never come out and tell now.

thats my point exactly i dont think anyone would plead guilty to a charge that they were not guilty of. i mean come on do you really think that he didnt do anything much less that charge of rape and whatever else do these defenders of sexual abusers like glenn w . as i look at it life in prison would be better these persons no wonder they get off with hardly anything ( you dont know) must be his wife or another sexual abuser

The newspaper said he plead guilty. If he did not do it then why didn't he go before a jury and tell his side and listen to what the 3 wittness had to say.

Oh please! Small minded, stupid, country, people have no idea what they are talking about and they LOVE to gossip.

Don't you think that there are 1000s of people bullied into pleading guilty when they are not? Don't you think police hear of a crime (that was recanted by the kid himself) that involves kids, they jump onto like a shark? This especially goes for that dyke detective at the MCSD who has kids with the other police dyke in SP. Of course a mother will believe anything children say, they have to, because precious children don't lie!

But, simple people believe what they want to.

BTW: his wife and him have a kid, don't you think that if he was this 'pervert' as you call him, his kid would have something to say? His kid's kids? Don't you think the 1000s of boyscouts he taught would have something to say, wouldn't you think that the 1000s of kids that he taught in school would have something to say?

One pissed off kid and one false accusation. I would plead guilty too, if I had to have a town of dumbasses like you all, judging me!

Whatever, you can't change people's small minds. Glenn and his family are welcome over to my house any day and would love to get together for dinner with you guys, such good times we have all had! I am not embarrassed or ashamed to be seen with you, to tell people that you are my friend, and I can't wait to see you guys at church. You guys have nothing to be ashamed, embarrassed of, or feel guilty about. Look at the people who are judging you: it's just the redneck, white-trash of Marion County. No one important.

He was Not bullied into confessing. He is guilty. Physical strength has nothing to do with it although this man is as strong as any other if not more. He prayed on young confused boys who were too embarrassed to tell anyone for the very reasons every here has mentioned. There were/are other victims who were willing to step forward if this child's testimony was not heard and/or believed. Fortunately, the system listened. Unfortunately, he isn't serving time. Put yourself in these kids (now men) place. How would you feel trying to tell someone like this had molested you! He got lucky.

BTW. Going to church etc. does not exclude one from sin. We are all sinners in the eyes of the Lord. As far as his wife goes, why on earth would she be looking for signs of molestation? Seriously, people van hide a multitude of sins when they want to.

Yes, I would plead guilty if I had to. This town/County are a bunch of uneducated, redneck, trash who know nothing of the law, but do know how to gossip.

Unlike the people on this board, site, town, and county, I have a college degree, have my own new car, am a manager at my work, and am very smart.

So, make your stupid comments and retorts, but make sure you spell and grammar check your responses, since you all probably dropped out of high school on the 9th grade.

Its "in" ninth grade.... Not "on". If you are going to judge someone's grammar, check yours also.
