"Do a Little Dance Make a Little Love Get Down Tonight". This will take on a well deserved whole new meaning in prison.

This is a total disgrace. People like this scum will repeat their behavior as soon as they get out. The judge seems not to be concerned about that.....about the recitivism rate being above 90%. This bastard should have been put in jail for life......he will get out in a few years on good behavior and start molesting boys yet again. Then of course, those kids will probably start to molest other kids in many cases. This case and the judge are a disgrace!!

Exactly what I was thinking! How about praying for the boys he molested! Not for him! I can't believe people judged your comment "nuts", etc. Maybe they are just too ignorant to have read the whole article.?? I can see no other reason.

"jail for life" apparently you like paying more and more taxes to build larger and lager jails, to put all these people in jail for life.
"Of course, those kids will probably start to molest.." it get the facts correct!!! A VERY low percentage of kids that get molest turn into molesters!" This was recently stated by a, Columbus-based, nationly known expert Dr. Howard Frankin during double (two Fridays) shows on Oprah where 200 molested men were on the show!

How about some prayers for those 7 boys who are now scarred for life.....their sentence is going to be a lot longer than this creeps!! And his publicist disgusts me!! He was probably a part of this whole sick scheme with those kids!
