Poor little girl, what chance does she stand having about the dumbest drunken white trash bast*rd imaginable for a Dad?

Did this dad make a poor choice? No doubt about it. Does he deserve to lose all communication with his daughter and face 15 years in prison...hell no! One poor choice does not a monster make. With all the killings and true abuse of children going on out there, get this man in some parenting classes and call it a day. He obviously loves his daughter and is good to her, many people (including the girl's mother) agree that he is a good father who made a bad judgment call. We are so over the top in everyone judging everyone elses' actions and acting so "holier than though" it sickens me, truly sickens me. Our laws are so warped, this man probably will get prison time while a true molester or murderer gets off scott free. What the hell is wrong with our country!!!

Any updates as to what has happened regarding this case? My heart goes out to the dad, and I hope the courts and prosecutors do the right thing by this man, though that is doubtful. It was horrible that they made the daughter testify against her father. That did far more damage (trauma) than anything the father did. What they are doing to this family is abuse!!!
