I feel he should have got a lesser sentence because other sex offenders only get probation for sexual assult on a child .I think they could have gave him probation he is a first time offender give him a chance other perverts get probation and do it over and over some can do it three times and still won't go to jail what's up with that i feel he was sentenced harshly is it because he is a mexican.?????

I feel they should of gave him probation at the least. I have heard of other sex offenders getting probation for sexual assult of a child for their third charge and then get prison time i feel personaly that it is wrong.Joe Lopez is a great tejano singer and i feel he should get a second chance like the other people who have been charged with this crime for the first time ,i think he deserves another chance like everyone else he is a great music legend in my book he should be out making good music like he does so well.Yours Truly Becky from cc texas

Tejano Music SUUUUUUUUUCKS! And that PIG ::SHIVERS: Joe Lopez totally LOOKS like a pedophile. He is disgusting!!!!!! YUCK!!!! And, he is obviously afraid of women that's why he goes around sleeping with little girls; They're probably the only ones he thinks he can impress. All those people who said that "he could get any woman he wanted," upset me and I am immensely concerned about their tastes! EWWWWWW. The point is that guess what, the women he "wanted" were not women at all, but little girls! Whether it was consentual or not is besides the point. The man unlawfully had sex with and even impregnated little girls. That is the fact and the crime. That is sick! He is in jail and I hope he stays there. Now, if the girl he had sex with is a slut or not does not matter. What matters is that he is in jail, and all of those possible little girls, who are clearly NOT sluts and who were within his proximity and therefore, in danger, are safe now! There's clearly still a question of whether or not it was rape,especially with his die-hard fans. Well, if I listened to his music too, of course I'd lack the neurons to understand this criminal act if it was staring me in the face. My message to you is this: First and foremost, learn how to spell please. I am thrilled that most of you have the courage to express your ridiculous opinion, but as a Mexican-American I am completely embarassed for some you. Secondly, what is definitely unequivocal is his penchant for unlawful sex with minors. This is the disease eating at our society: Older nut-jobs corrupting our youth! Thirdly, respect the law. He had a fair trial and he was convicted. Job well done and kudos to the jury! His music is trash! His name is ghetto! And, if my tax money is spent paying for his presence in jail, it is money well spent! I pay it gladly!--Cheers!

Suggestion for possible rehabilitation: He should hook-up with Michael Jackson. That would neutralize a double-edged threat...

And Becky, he is not a first time offender, honey. Mr. Pig here had already impregnated a 14-year-old. I'm pretty sure a sexual act precipitated the concpetion ... unless you know a different way of getting pregnant.

My mouth just dropped when I saw these comments especially from Becky Soliz. It really makes me angry to see how ignorant some people are. People like Becky cannot comprehend the severity of this crime, maybe because it hasn't hit home...Becky, place yourself or the thought of your own child or little sister in the hands of a 57 year old man, drugged and raped. Do you think a slap on the hand is a fair punishment?!!!!! I pray for your recovery and ask GOD to work in your life to help you see that crimes like these are not acceptable in our society and these creatures who prey on our children must be locked up. His celebrity status has nothing to do with this crime, OPEN YOUR EYES! I suggest you get involed with the shelters that hide abused children and women and see first hand how devestating this could be.

Yes the man has to paid for his crime. It is as shame that men still can not keep thier Dicks in thier pants.Shame on him for abusing a child. She is ruled by immature emotions. He is an adult that took advantage of that immaturity. Thier is no excuse or reasoning for his behavoir. Jail is not sufficient sentence for him. Shame shame on you.

Well Sonia... well it's obvious you know nothing about Tejano Music.. Mija Joe was and still is a very good looking man. Yes the pictures we see know you might be judging them. But you got to relize that he is in his Fifties and we all know with time.. WE all lose are beauty.. So if you don't really know the truth of what happened that night tha Joe was ACCUSED of the crime let's not hate. Yes, were talking about a minor but many minor lie, and will do anything for money. Let's give him the benefit of the dought if he mentions that he is innocent. Cuz he may vey well be innocent and we don't know that..

how quickly people are ready to judge others without knowing the facts behind it,Joe is not guilty, and I believe my pastor, I've done a lot of research on his case etc, etc, and he is NOT GUILTY
Even thought alot of you are quick to judge just remember when you point the finger to that person 3 are pointing back at you,

Your pastor is an idiot and so are you. Your pastor must be getting a cut back on joe lopez or is exciting the people to donate and 10 fingers are pointing back at him just like if anyone knows pastors they have a background. If he is not guilty just ask yourself why did he rape a young girl at the age of 14 and she had a child. you are a total idiot and everyone can see it.

Joe lopez is an idiot and should have taken the plea bargain but he didn't because he thought he was above the law and he was not.
