There are more people that should be locked up then there ever are. Just remember your neighbor who just moved in, could be a child molester or anything from another town. Beware of the people who you would least expect it, and put on a great disguise.

We should keep an eye on our judges in this case. I looked up their sentences on the prior case, and as far as I can make out:

Cynthia: 11 1/2 to 23 months with consecutive 2 yr probation; granted parole on 6/3/10

Jonathan: 3 to 6 yr with consecutive 1 to 2 yr sentence (granted prerelease or special porole?)

Tabitha: 9 to 23 months with consecutive 1 yr probation; granted parole on 3/26/10

While I'm not a "lock em up and throw away the key" type, I feel these were some seriously lax sentences, considering what they had done...now they've done it again. Westmoreland County judges need to be watched. Westmoreland County has been cited as being lax on sex offenders, such as Jonathan; if this occured in most other counties, he'd probably still be locked up. If there isn't some serious sentencing this time around, something is very wrong.

Jeannette, Grapeville, Everson, Connellsville are all the same, it seems like all the trash, SSI, and Welfare people run to those places to live. Dirty places I wouldn't live there if someone paid me to. These cities need to clean up their towns and get rid of the trash and their cities wouldn't be labled the way they are.

No we're not perfect. We may not know the "while" story either, but, WE DONT ENSLAVE OR KIDNAP PEOPLE. Also, I dont think most of us on here have lengthy criminal records as well.

I guess there's a reasonable explaination for multiple slavery charges. Seems like the judges don't take this too seriously though.

It's funny how they got away with it, not once, but twice. They got a petty sentence and are out walking the streets, collecting their welfare cash and food stamps! The brother should've got arrested for incest since he got his sister pregnant. I bet if it was anyone else, they'd be in jail for a long time. The judges giving them a slap on the wrist is like saying... hey, it's ok to kidnap and enslave teenagers, along with the disgusting things they did to the girl up in Greensburg, like urinating on the girl while she was chained up. Then they do it again on Clay Avenue! They basically got away with it twice. What the hell is wrong with the justice system? But, if you sell drugs for income, you go to jail for a long time. Tell me, where does this make sense?
