Thank heaven the courts did thier job & agreed with the jury & judge. Tough not enough time in my opinion. Your excuse to blame your drinking is a poor one & unforgivable one too! It's no better than blaming a second bum-hole for it.

There isn't any excuse for what you did. The only thing your sorry about is that you got caught. You didn't even have the nerve or the spine to be honest enough to stand up like a real man & make appologises to each one of those children that you violated thier trust & bodies. Your nothing more than a worthless piece of flesh that needs to be castrated locked in a cage & the key needs to be lost for ever. I hope you suffer at someone else's hands like those poor small grandchildren did in yours.

I pray to God you burn in eternal-hatties. There isn't any kind of forgiveness for something like you. I don't even classify you as a human your a evil, vile, preditory monster that stalked, tutored, groomed, & raped your victims that were your own flesh & blood.

Which makes me wonder, HOW MANY OTHER VICTIMS HAVE YOU MOLESTED ????? Were there family friend's children or grandchildren? Nieces or Nephews, neighborhood children, or possibly your own children?
