    2-yrs sentence, 3-years probation, 10 years kept from public places with kids, and 20 years on the national sex offender’s registry? Not nearly enough in any category. He's a predator and a fairly young one at that. In two years time, he's 33, another 3-years and he's 36, an additional 10-years kept away from kids brings him to 46; he's on the registry till 51 or 56? And in all cases, still young enough to resume his ways. Can we expect change? Not according to the studies on pedophiles that have been released to media over the years. If anything, inclusion on the registry should extend as long as the disease. Makes sense, doesn't it? If and when a cure is ever found, only then should the time be adjusted. In 20 years, my children will be older by then, but what about the next generation? Who will protect them? Do we have to wait for the first strike to be able to enact protection for the next generation of potential victims? Whose child gets to be the sacrificial lamb? It will be someone's with the way this is laid out. By then, the grey hair and the softened features will give him an even less threatening demeanor to prey upon the most fragile in our society. The answer an educated society should give to this last question posed is 'NO ONE'S'.

    Another poor excuse for a human being.. To make the statement that he is 'sick' was only made to try and reduce any punishment that might be deserved. If he could make that statement and knew he was sick...that's even worse....because if you 'know' you are sick you do something about it, you just don't keep on destroying the lives of innocent children....the sentence was nowhere enough for such a crime....not much of deterrent in my mind.

    If this went on for 3 years, then the minimum sentence should be 3 years. Many child sex offenders are repeat offenders, this guy will be back in the spotlight a couple years after he is released. The Americans have one thing right when it comes to the law, many states enforce a mandatory life sentence with no chance of parole for 20 years when someone is convicted of sexually abusing a minor.

    Two years for robbing a child of his youth? You gotta' be kidding. Only in NL. could you get such a light slap on the wrist for such an outright breach of trust ending in a childs devastation. Oh well I guess like in politics where one gets the government they deserve we get the judicious system we deserve.
