Part of me agrees with you Rizzo but the other part of me wants him to rot in jail for the rest of his life, the only downfall is that we as taxpayers will pay for his incarceration.

Bummer that they stopped him. Though this does help prove his guilt, I suppose.

He feels that now, but only because he got caught. had he not been set up, he would have carried this on forever. Justice... is done.

That's ok prisoner don't like child molesters or animal abuser's, so he'll get his, maybe that's what he's scared of, not the court system, but being behind bars with real hardened criminals that don't care for that kind of behavior.

His Cellie was just trying to keep him alive so the rest of the Gen Pop could keep their plans to 'have fun with him'.. I don't mind paying for his room and board if the other fellas do what they do best with Chesters.

This is probably why he attempted suicide to get out of the gen pop and be in a monitored psych ward, so bubba doesn't get a hold of him.

For a federal prosecutor who is supposed to protect the rights of the innocent to do this type thing is horrible. He should have saved us all the time and money by dying! I guess the one good thing is that the boys in the big house will have a field day with him. Let the party begin!

Of course he tried to off himself, he knows firsthand what could happen to him behind bars and he also knows his ass is going to be there a long time and here he is expecting people to feel sorry for him, this poor, misunderstood, babyraper, scumbag. This case really makes me sick. Here is a man who is supposed to uphold the law, enforce it, by putting scuzz like him away. Again, they need to check his conviction rates, see how many pedophiles he let walk or refuse to bring to trial. As these twisted scumbags network with each other, it would not surprise me in the least he let dangerous predators back on the streets because he is one of them. Sannilac County is not really that far from where I live, maybe an hour, and to think this piece of dog crap flew all the way to my area to have sex with what he thought was a baby. I also wonder if any female relatives of his have been sexually abused as well and have not told anyone about it. I posted on another board how hard it is now for defense attorneys for these maggots, to prove their clients innocence when they have chat-logs, recorded phone conversations and actual digital photos or videos of the dirtbags showing up to meet their victim. Once you have this evidence at hand, it is all over but the crying to the judge how sorry he is and then whining about his sentence. In this scumbag's case two states have him dead to rights and he knows there is no beating this rap and this is why his life will be a living hell behind bars so he thought he would off himself and I kinda wish the inmate would have had a memory lapse seeing him try to hang himself, but at the same time I want this scuzzbag to stand trial. Probably he will serve his sentence in PC and that is too bad as practically every inmate will have children, and the very fact his was a prosecutor will not bode well with the inmates as well. He is toast. He is nothing now but a pedophile, a scumbag and will be now inmate #123456, just another piece of dog crap in a cage like Couey.

The really sad part is that most child molestors in federal prison are separated from general population "for their safety." They don't mix them in gen pop any more. Watch some of the prison documentaries on Discovery/National Geographic Channel, they say it at almost every fed prison they visit.

This is precisely why I don't like cops! They are forever sticking their noses in places they have no business.

Of course, I'm being sarcastic.

They should have let this freak perform his civic duties:

1) Save the taxpayers some money.
2) Rid the planet of worthless garbage.

I applaud the detectives in this endeavour to protect our children. I am also grateful that what use to be kept hush is finally out in the light, now maybe the next generation will understand it wasn't their fault and past generations will heal. I also am happy to see that there is no cover ups no special treatments. Predators exsist in all walks of life from the rich and prominante to the poor and low life.

Thank you again to the detectives, for your time and effort in undertaking this fight.

I have one more comment to make.....What is the point? We all know the general outcry of anger regarding the predator! For everyone of them taken off the street is one less I have to worry about harming my children/grandchildren and someone elses children/grandchildren. Expressing anger is normal, however now is the time for action and the detectives are doing just that! If you know of any predators or children that hjave been your mouth use your anger in a productive way that will help!

I've gotta agree with DapperDave should have saved us all of the money, frustration and time that a trial and his incarceration would cost and let him finish it off.

I'd me more concerned about all the innocent people he locked up because scambags always think that everyone around them is like them.
