    um, we lock up 11 yr olds, and let adult pedophiles roam free? awesome, this is just the kind of justice that seems status quo fro NEPA Valley these days? This kid prob picked up the idea from somewhere, prob at home, if not and just juvenile curiosity, why is he imprisoned? outpatient counseling on good and bad touches aren’t the better initiative?

      First of all, the article says he was in a treatment facility, not “locked up”. He obviously has some emotional issues that aren’t (and shouldn’t be) specified in the article. Likewise, I agree that he probably learned his behaviors from a bad home, and some adults need to be held responsible. That being said though, an 11 year old knows the difference between good touch and bad touch, so your idea of just explaining it to him or passing it off as juvenile curiosity, and letting him be in his merry way, is a laughably silly solution. He needs serious treatment both for his own well-being and for the protection of any future victims.
