    This is outrageous. So, he rapes a child, but spends no time in prison?? Where is the justice for that poor child? What about any other child he encounters? He has nothing to fear, he may as well attack any child without repercussions. If he sold drugs though, he’d probably be in for 20 years. This is sickening.

      There will be no justice for the child there never is, Crawford County is the only one getting Paid for someone else’s suffering except they call it “Fines and fees” and they keep it all.
