There is a special place in hell for child molesters. Did Robert Sparhawk marry the mother to get to the daughters?

That's right! There should be a special place in hell for child molesters! They should burn in hell, and never return to see the light of day.

In a sociology class in college, we visited and talked with prison inmates and were told everyone hated child molesters. So there is a moral hierarchy in prison. Hopefully, what goes around comes around.
