    Brace yourself folks, WTVD interviewed his wife and she is standing by him. I believe the wife said the "child" he was convicted for already had "lied" about her age. I think she was 15.

    This absolutely makes me heart sick. Just when I think I can't hear enough bad things on the news, there's yet something else. Anytime there's a child involved it makes it where I can barely even read about it. I have two kids myself, fortunately older and on there own. Now I'm about to become a Grandma for the first time and as much as I think it's wonderful and exciting, I still feel concerned. There's no way to feel safe! I used to say it's good to be aware but not afraid... Well, times have certaining changed and too much has become acceptable and expected to the point that nothing surprises us anymore.

    I have a 5 year old daughter and I can't imagine this happening to her. I would have literally killed him if this would have happened to her. I hope he pays for it in prison.

    You don't know that for a fact. I need your proof.

    It is a fact. Psychologists have concluded this. It doesn't matter how much counseling you goto, pedophiles will never stop being attracted to children.
    If you send a man to counseling for 5 years and try to convince him that Megan Fox is not beautiful...you will fail. There will always be that attraction hard wired in him.
    The same is true for pedophiles and children. They may, may be able to control their urges, but why take that chance...lock them away and protect our innocent kids.
