    The child was 6 years old, not 8.
    When she found out what happened, the mother of the child severely beat Jimmy and was hauled off to jail for it. $25K bond for 3 counts of child molestation? He'll probably get a slap on the hand and the mother will serve time.

    I think a death sentence for these pedophiles would stop 99% of them... and Death sentences for drug dealers also. Japan does.. I think they are superior to us.. because they " don;t put up with cra_!"
