This pervert MUST be put in a place where he cannot commit these crimes ever again.

I think people shouldn't judge him until all is out in the open. The 19 year old could also be up to no good!!!

Maybe we can wait to stone him until after he gets a trial. You know, like they do in civilized places.

You're not going to be charged by Feds until they have their case made. The fact that he's facing charges in three different counties on multiple counts is very telling. I agree innocent until proven guilty, but kids in three counties who have no knowledge of eachother are not all lieing on the man.

WTVA has on their websit, transcripts of his conversation with a boy who had him tapped.
He promised to pay him $100 and $500 to lie.

If you want to stone someone, how about moving yourself and your children to one of the countries where they still stone people..... and see how long you make it....
With a name like LadyinRed, I don't see you lasting very long before the stones start getting tossed in your direction...
I am sure simply calling yourself LadyinRed, much less wearing red, would be more than enough to get yourself stoned in more than a few places in the world...
If you want to be uncivilized, the rest of us are happy for you to go join them....

I agree with LadyinRed. If we had more punishable ways such as stoning then perhaps perverts would think twice about raping a young boy! What is so civilized about a 55 yr old man raping a 13 year old boy?? I am so tired of society wanting to protect the ones who commit the crimes first and more than the victims themselves. These days it's as if the violators have more rights than the victims and that is sad!
As for 'vintnerbutler''s you that would not last long until the stones are thrown your way. I can't believe that you would attack someone for their opinions to stand up for these children! You've completely missed the whole point of the article! This man was looked up to and these kids were told they could trust him! This is the issue not whether or not this ladyinred has a good sign-in name or not! How would you like it if one of those 13 yr olds were your son or brother. Better yet, how would you feel if it was you who was forced to have oral sex with a 55 yr old man? With the very man who you were told you could trust no matter what?
So get off your high horse on whether or not stoning is civilized! It's not like anyone can legally go out and do these days here in America.
