    Don’t get to snug about a prosecution and/or conviction!!!! I remember a case back in 2010 when a man was accused of child rape and eight other horrible charges and the man was found not guilty on six and the other charges were a hung jury. Remember, this is America, and you are innocent until proven guilty.

    It’s really sad and upsetting, to hear stories like this. An innocent child, the victim of such a hideous crime. Our laws are not strict enough for this type of behavior, when crimes against a child are committed, the maximum punishment should apply.I have seen this type of disgusting crime, committed in our area, way too often. The thug, hires a smooth talking attorney, the mouthpiece stands in front of a jury, telling the jury that his client was abused as a child, the fast talking hired Perry Mason wannabe, stands in front of the jury, and works the jury,like puppets on a string, ” my client was the victim of sexual child abuse”,making the jury’ sympatheic towards the evil demon that committed the crime. In the end, the thug walks away with, minimum prison time, and psychiatric counseling, only to do it again, down the road. The victim, a recipient of a lifetime of broken dreams, broken spirit, and clouded mind………

    Being a survivor of sexual abuse, stories like these makes me ill. I am very glad that WNEP has the courage to broadcasts them and appreciate that fact. Making these attacks public may encourage the abused or those that know abused children to come forward.
    There are so many stories like this in the WNEP listening area that it makes one wonder why is this so common in this area. In all my years living in one of the largest cities, I have never heard so many accounts of pedophilia. Is there something in the water?

      Same here Bill, I had lived in a large city before here and it’s epidemic here, or so it might seem because in a neighborhood boro of 1 million people; these are more spread out, however, since there a quite a few prisons around the area, many of them who are let out after serving their cat naps settle somewhere around here.

    what a complete worthless waste of a human. This man should be tortured and then used as a test study to use electrodes to his brain to study why sickos like this exist in the world. And then some extra hours to just torture the *!@$% out of him. OMG. This is absolutely disgusting!!
