  1. I cant believe this. I have known him my whole life and my babies grew up around him. He never did this around them or to them thank god. I never dreamt he would ever do this. However i guess when they say watch who u trust thats something u should always do


  2. I know him and his son I think it’s crazy trying to lure kids why would u do that for damn kids I think he should get longer time


  3. You have got to be kidding, 180 days isn’t nothing. That will just give that piece of crap time to figure out how to get his next child. Why don’t you Just smack him on the hand and tell him to be a good boy!! Pervert!!!!!!!


  4. Doesn’t surprise me one bit! He’s been doing things for years and now he’s been caught! I pray that others will have the confidence to come forward!


  5. When we were in school the sicko did a duck, he’s always been a sick, sick person who really shouldn’t be around any child not even his own, that’s why his son is a sex offender because it was do be to him. Put the man away or let him be the next jail accident
