What is up with people? The ones that are in charge of the criminal justice system seem to be more corrupt than those they are arresting, prosecuting, etc.? Signs of a very sick society...

Atchison is one sick SOB. I feel sorry for his family. Speaking of families .... he's from the 'family values' party.

mf'er! And there it is summed up in one measly article. A US 'prosecutor' desiring sex with a 5 yr old girl?!? The best prosecution for him will come on his judgement day! May he burn in hell forever

It is so sad to see what this world is coming to. They should have let him kill himself because the world would be a better place without him.

Although I agree that he deserves to die (I personally think Crow Cages are a wonderful idea) if they had let him kill himself someone from his family would have surely sued everyone involved and made a tidy sum off of the taxpayers

WHERE’S THE OUTRAGE OR CONCERN OVER SOMETHING THIS SICK AND PERVERTED? WHAT HAPPENED TO THE RUSH TO JUDGMENT AND CONDEMNATION?
AMAZING TO SEE SOMETHING SO SICK AND TWISTED AND ONLY A FEW COMMENTS ARE POSTED. BUT LET THIS HAD BEEN SOME FRIVOLOUS BULL CRAP ABOUT MICHAEL VICK OR O.J. AND THIS FORUM WOULD HAVE BEEN QUICKLY FILLED WITH RACIST AND HOSTILE COMMENTS. YOU PEOPLE ARE SOMETHING ELSE.

I am torn. I hate to see my tax $$ wasted on proving the guy is an animal, but I likewise would hate for him to miss all the wonderful beating and rapes he is going to get.
My condolences to his family that will have to endure thru this.

I feel so sad for what his family must be going through. But I am glad he didn't get out/off that easy.

Figures he would try to take the easy way out. He has the balls to sexually abuse a 5 year old BUT does not have the balls to take the punishment.
