This is so sad for everyone involved. This man has a new baby at home he has never met, a teenage son, and a wife. I just find it a little outrageous that the attorney generals and others involved feel comfortable sending these people to prison for literally HUNDREDS of years, for dealing drugs.. when they didn't force people to do drugs. They didn't hold a gun to their head.. none of that.. but in turn get substantially longer sentences then someone that forces themselves on an innocent child, or woman. This, Blair County, needs to be considered. Why are these child molesters eligible for parole after a few months after forcing themselves on people, but drug dealers get centuries behind bars for dealing drugs to willing users? What is wrong here?
