Let me make sure Im reading this correctly. Up to 50 yrs for allowing a child to be present while making meth but up to 5 yrs. for child molestation. Grrr Our justice system is so broken!!!
Thursday, November 1st, 2018
Stop wasting tax payers money by keeping trash like this up in jail...a bullet between the eyes will do just fine!!
Thursday, November 1st, 2018
How is raping a child less time than meth? U think drugs are the problem more than having sex with a child?
Friday, November 2nd, 2018

Thursday, November 1st, 2018
They need the maximum on each charge, and no plea bargain Commonwealth Attorney. Sickening.
Friday, November 2nd, 2018
I am all for rehabilitation of criminals, until the violation of children is involved. Set them on fire, maybe?
Friday, November 2nd, 2018
So you get less time for actually messing with a child than having pictures? Did I read that correctly? Cause wow.. And at least giving minors drugs gets you 10-40 years
Thursday, November 1st, 2018
