Why did they stop him??? Let him do it. It's better than what he deserves. Save us the money of the trial and supporting the scumbag after he's convicted.

Think how much money this country could save if we just put a noose and a stool in every prison cell in the country.

I know he is dumb, but what in the world was he thinking when he thought a 5 yr. old's mother would make arrange ments to have sex with the child? Was he so blind or why did he not check into this when he discovered a mother was helping with arrangements. I don't know, but I know 2 good reasons that he should be scared as H___. No. 1 he is an attorny, that is a trophy in gen. Population, and #2 wanting to have sex with a 5 year old, is also a trophy.

That's the really sad part. There really are people out there who sell their children. especially for drugs.

Why did tampabay 10 make a VERY brief statement on the FEDERAL PROSECUTOR John D.R. Atchison case?? I found out details from my daughter in TEXAS and then looked it up on the Orlando Sentinal website which gave at least more detail which included that he is also charged with crossing state lines to have sex with a minor as heshowed up in Michigan with a doll, some earrings and some sex material to have sex with a FIVE year old. He can get life on this with the three charges he has against him. Actually on the emails which apparently were more important to the news channels in TEXAS, was the offer he made to the mother to be gentle with her daughter and he would dress her up in a Dora the Explorer outfit. TampaBay 10 are you cheating us from knowing what goes on in FLORIDA?! You sure left out a lot.
