    Sadly, this abuse had gone on for YEARS and never reported until it finally came out. He was a pillar of his community in Aredale — Fire Department, volunteer, etc….

      Anyone who touches a child in a sexual nature should be strung up from a very, very tall tree.

    Studies prove these people can’t be rehabilitated– he will probably do it again. Does he live in Hampton and if so, what is his address?

    I’m just sure he got rehabilitated in 11 months……. What is wrong with this picture. These are the criminals who should never get concurrent sentences!

    What a POS and we had to pay to feed this waste. I sure hope he got enough in the rear where he was at so some young child doesnt have to worry about him.
