and now he will be warehoused in jail; fed three hot meals a day; given work out equipment, books and allowed to bathe. what does that little girl get? memories of being abused and horrible anxiety for the rest of her life. death sentence today for this scum bag. or trade him in for one of the innocent animal lives that are being tested on at laboratories

This is one reason why I appreciated the MUG SHOTS that no longer seem to be on the PATCH

Thanks for publishing the mug shots. Maybe they will help someone when this guys gets out in a few months. Unless he does enjoy the 3 star accommodations that most people can't afford since we are paying taxes to support the jail. Until we start standing up for victim rights vs criminal rights this heinous crime will continue to grow.

The bastard should be shot. This is the condition of a society gone absolutely mad.
