Sara, come on, Iím sure you are educated enough to know that a check on someone will only show something if they have been previously caught doing something wrong. Iím sure that Scouts followed proper procedures and didnít find anything. Also, to let you know, Scouts jumped on this immediately to satisfy all parents and members.

I canít believe I am saying this, but, 51 months for a man who has never hurt anyone? He is not a threat to our community. He has already lost everything. I just hope that this time will heal this family, and when he gets out, this family will be strong enough to work things out so that all 4 of them can be happy. God bless them!

Interesting to compare/contrast this with the slightly longer (5 years) sentence recently negotiated for the Livermore Hummer Hag -- on 64 counts (but who's counting?) of actual sex with minors (boys, 13 and 14), and nude photos and shooting people and property with pellet guns.

I guess my sarcasm didnít really explain my point.
I totally canít comprehend any kind of abuse of a child, whether mental, emotional, physical, or sexual. It is disgusting!
However, someone once asked me what is the difference between downloading or buying from a store. Most man canít guess the age, and therefore, how can you say it is a crime?
I guess my point was, donít download, donít go to a dirty little store that probably has the same illegal stuff. As for the blond comment, again, itís a joke, Michael gets 5 years for looking, she gets 5 years for doing.
