House arrest was changed to 6 months intensive probation.

Same difference. They gave him that instead of the house arrest. He better be thanking his lucky stars. He is on 48 months supervised probation also. Deserves more if you ask me. Just because the DA decided not to charge him with all the charges and took a plea doesn't mean the individuals can't decide to bring forth their own charges.

Unfortunately our government tries to accept the lowest charges possilbe that would still allow him to register and follow sex offender treatment but without jail time.

It is so sad that he does not really have to pay like other people. I am sure that his being in government and his brother still in government saved him even if he hurt others. Thats the way it work. The crooks walk most of the time. But if it was a child of mine, I would hate him and would the greatest punishment for him.

You know that is not right, the child he did things to will never be free, I know first hand the nighmares never go away for the victom or the family. He is just free to do it again, makes you feel like there is no justice for the children. They have finally changed the justice for these crimes and are making the prison time more strict for these crimes. Just remember the victim suffers forever.
