    Wow, caught twice and still out to victimize other kids. Some punishments just don’t make sense. I thought laws and punishments were there to protect the innocent but now they seem to be scud in the favor of the creeps and criminals. Sex offender should be forced to get a huge tattoo on their forehead to warn everyone they are predators and can’t control themselves. Two offenses should be automatic castration.

    Hopefully you get the max of 3 years due to your disregard for the law!! You are sick! I will never understand why adults prey on little kids. Since your daddy was a preacher, you of all people should know, that what is done in darkness will be brought to light! Looks like all those years of your dirty hidden secrets is finally coming out!

    Yes- I hope they give him some real jail time, so his other white sex offender buddies will think twice before they attack our children!

      Amen Dookie! Like I said they come in all colors so keep your eyes on the prize. Your children trust no one but, God!

      Maybe they will put him in the same cell with a violent black man and this problem will take care of itself. You know, one of those black men that commit over 50% of violent crimes yet make up only 15% of the population. That’s a win-win for everyone involved.

    He probably will get 18 months in county instead of the big house where he belongs.
    Mr Clev you are such a disappointment

      Beware I,ve known this p.o.s for most of his life he also has molested kids that he,s not been charged for,The parents wanted to save the kids more embarrassment.But end result is it left him free to molest more kids,And this creep has a business called Halls lawn care service,So he visits many area,s in St Mary,s co,and surrounding countys doing work or eyeing his next little victims !!Hopefully he gets real jail time this time in the big house an he,s the one molested an beaten daily as he an others like him deserve,An now he,s into weapons? Must be planning on shooting those of us that try to protect our familys an misc,kids against perverted child molestors like him.

      Sadly, you are probably right. He is a disappointment and a disgrace to real Christians. He has a way to manipulate people by using Gods word. And Justice is right, there are other victims of this monster that haven’t spoken up. He should be in jail for the rest of his miserable life. I have know him for a long time too and he is sick!!! Hopefully his VOP next month will net him some real time with all his back up time that he should have gotten in the first place.

    Ugh every couple of years this sick disgrace shows up on these sites. I hope all the victims speak up, you have a voice. Protect yourself and to the victims parents…its devastating hearing words that your child has been a victim but it’s a lot harder for your child to tell you. Be proud they talked to you, stand up for them, you are their advocate don’t wait, and don’t second guess what they are saying. Help them by speaking up!
