Glad to hear the perpetrator of this hideous crime was beaten by the child's mother and that he was held until police took custody. Sex crimes against children are high in EPA, but not talked about often enough. I hope he serves the maximum sentence possible.

It's violators like these who make it impossible to raise kids now-a-days. It seems like it's happening all the time, in our own backyards, and justice is never served. So, I'm glad the mother took notice of the dilemma first-hand, and I hope the suspect is given the maximum penalty for ruining an innocent child's life.

I'm sure he too was a victim of such a crime, hence his abonimable behavior. It's a sick system that allows victims to go unaided. BUT as a mom, I would have really hurt him. Hell has no fury compared to what a mother can & should do!
Congratulations to the brave woman who fought for her daughter!
