    This child’s soul has been murdered and this animal only gets 3 years prison time?? It will take her most of her lifetime to recover from this abuse!! WHEN is the criminal system going to acknowledge the VALUE of children? By the time an abuser is caught, there is an estimated 70 other victims. This man will continue abusing children until he is 6 feet under.
