http://m.cbsnews.com/fullstory.rbml?catid=57477281&feed_id=1&videofeed=null This horrific sexual predator who preyed upon female recruits was convicted on 28 counts of first-degree rape and other forms of sexual harrassment and misconduct, while in the position of instructor to the women he abused. And yet, even though the law provides for up to life imprisonment for these crimes, he got 20 years. Usually that sentence carries a provision for parole in 7 to 10 years, dependent upon conduct. It is well known that sexual predators have a very high rate of recidivism. The probability that someone who has made rape his lifestyle, as this slimy worm has, will rape again when he gets out of prison, is unacceptably certain. His “heartfelt pleas” to the judge and jury that he be allowed to participate in his childrens’ rearing should have been taken as incentive to lock him up for life plus 20 years. What fine values could a monster like this instill into his children. Makes me want to vomit.
