    One wonders why they never release the age of the "child." There is a huge difference between sex offenses against a three year old and a seventeen year old.

    I wonder why it took so long & 2009???

    My guess would be since the victim is a child either the child didn't or wasn't able to report it. Maybe someone suspected and the police finally had enough for a warrant. The victims are usually threatened with harm to themselves, or family members, sometimes even their pets. If this man did this crime, unfortunately I bet he's back out within 5 years. And it has been proven that pedophiles cannot be rehabilitated, some restrain themselves from the predatory urges but most do not. Laws/punishment for these crimes are far too lenient, in my opinion. J-Peace there are cases of false accusations in battles over custody, and sometimes "a woman scorned" but sadly that is much rarer than actual cases of guilty sex offenders. Frankly, in my experience they are easily identified due to their illness being evident in their behavior & testimonies. My heart and prayers go out to the child.

    Are you serious Tip Tip you must be a predator to recognize one before knowing anything about the case or the person. People (you) are are so quick to judge someone else. You should be saying "If this person did this", since you feel so compelled to leave a comment" It took so long for a reason a women scorn. I won't jeopardize his case by talking about his case since you want to be a God, judge, jury and the prosecution so get a life. Find you a higher power and pray this never happen to you.

    The courts should locked this may away for 60 years. He will continue to do so if he is ever turn free again. Praying that with counseling the children will be OK in time and with good support.
