    Yep, general population in prison should do the trick. As soon as his fellow inmates find out what he did, they will do to him what he did to that little 3 year old, but for a long, long time. Still not as long as that little girl is going to have to live with it.

    $75,000 bail. You have to be kidding me. This is a 3 year old for crying out loud. There should be a much higher , or no bail. Make an example out of him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I know that some readers may be tired of reading these words from me, but as a rape survivor, I truly believe that rape is so dreadful a crime that not even rapists deserve it. I may be wrong, but that seems to be what John283594 and JuanGrande are making reference to.

    There's no excusing sexual violence---against anyone.

    Sick. I hope he is tried as an adult.

    You got that right John283594, general population will be just the trick for him. After two weeks, he'll never think of toddlers again.

    General population should do the trick, let every inmate know what he did!

    Kids these days have far too much time on their hands and parents who are generally gone to work, etc. Sexual stuff is so easy to find online and most kids spend hours surfing for it. It warps the already troubled impressionable mind. Heck, it even does that to alot of adults.

    Disgusting! Send him to PI.

    Praying for his wee victim.

    God bless.
