  • How exactly do you get out on bail for “continuous sexual abuse of a minor”?

  • Must have trained under Jared

  • This guy looks familiar to me, like I’ve seen him “Advertised” here previously!!!

  • IF & or when this POS is convicted, get him some help, before someone “Helps” him over a cliff or something equally nasty!!!

  • I don’t see any remorse or fear in those eyes, nor tearful redness from realizing reality just hit him in the face and his life is absolutely screwed from here on out. He must know he’ll be relieved of his normal everyday societal duties for the next 5-10 years. Maybe he’s “simple”, I’ve never run across him around town.

    OMG! Horrible POS. Rot in hell, after a long tour of a prison. That’s my wish…

  • Thank you Sheriff, for using our tax money wisely and justly. Keep up the good work and get all these pervs locked up. This is the only true ‘for the children’ crusade I highly approve of, the crusade of securing their safety. I hope there’s a way to track down the pervs who created & distributed the photos. I hope the abusers of those children find God’s wrath through any means necessary.

  • They need to bust the meth makers ,and the heroin bakers, and put them all together in a cell.

  • Continuous.. wow. Unreal.

    It was interesting to read a piece about a young man who knew he was attracted to those much younger (he was barely a teen) but didn’t want to act on his thoughts and sought help, went public. Now other countries have support systems in place and keep tabs on this kinda shit..

    I fear for the future this child may face… terrifying.

    On that note: Most all low bottom drug addicts were sexually abused as children. The mind must rewire in untrusting, unknowing, uncertain, self defeating degrading and demeaning ways. Please direct all angry comments regarding homelessness, needles in the street, petty theft and low level dealing -HERE- . Though still missing the point (ha, a pun, it’s prohibition) at least you won’t sound like an uneducated curmudgeon.

    • Not true at all. Especially for men. Nor does it address the people abused as children who are not any of those things.

      “Approximately 30% of sexual assault cases are reported to authorities.
      9.3% of cases of maltreatment of children in 2012 were classified as sexual abuse.
      62,939 cases of child sexual abuse were reported in 2012. ”

      “Women in the nation’s prisons and jails reported higher levels of abuse as children than women in the general population. More than a third of female state prison and jail inmates said that they had been abused as children, as did about 14 percent of male inmates. The report noted that in the general population, estimates of physical or sexual abuse as children ranged from 12 to 17 percent for females and from 5 to 8 percent for males.”
