Eff'in sicko! He NEEDS to go down for that! Hopefully in general population...maybe he'll get a taste of what he did to that poor little boy!
I know that is not what he needs, but the truth is, he won't get any mental rehabilitation. But hopefully the little boy will get some psychological rehab, so he can get through such a traumatic violation.

I agree with the above comments about this sick crime. And, I can't believe there are so many different "levels" of sexual predation. Why the distinction between 10 year-old victims versus 14 year-old victims? Sexual predators should be held maximally accountable for their transgressions, without lessor penalties for slightly older victims. In fact, the lesser punishment for older victims, by definition, implies the victims are partly responsible for the crime inflicted upon them. How sick our criminal justice system is.

This mindset needs to change!
