      His crime was commited in Pennsylvania and if it was your family you wouldn’t mind paying that…as a relative i am absolutely elated he is back here to face his charges. My 18 yr old daughter was brutally assaulted and left for dead in New York..her assailant only received 15 years….had he been tried here in the commonwealth he would have received life….i am glad this POS is being sentenced here.
