    I am skeptical if this fellow kens the fate that awaits him in his incipient cubicle of concrete. five years of a child’s life down the drain, consummately gone, never to return. I dare verbalize that he himself may find himself on the receiving cessation of the deviant activities that he felt such a desideratum to inflict on a child. This man will certainly rue the day of his actions, and will likely suffer the consequences of his actions. I can only hope that this man receives a lengthy sentence for his actions, God kens he deserves that. In any case, the child needs to go through excruciating counseling, therapy, and other psychological accommodations to ascertain that he can live the rest of his life to the best of what he’s capable of. He additionally needs a doting family that will be certain to look after him. My prayers are with the child of this incident. I am genuinely sorry for his loss.
