Stop the early release of a child molester.

This court gave a woefully inadequate sentence to this child molester in the first place. They gave him only six years. This poor excuse of a man was a Reserve Deputy Sheriff for Spencer County when he committed these crimes. Just for that reason alone he should have received a tougher sentence.

And now, they are going to make the children he terrorized suffer that much more by releasing him early? I don't understand this. They give drug dealers longer time in prison than this.

      My cousin asked that I share his sentencing information with you all. She says, "From what we understand, he rec'd the largest sentence EVER handed down in the History of Sp Co for such a sentence....30 years...however 15 years suspended....and in IN...when you serve 1 day, you get 1 day "good time"....so in actuality....he was only going to have to serve 7 and 1/2 years to begin with!!! NOW they have it cut down to him getting out in April (what reason IDK, but possibly because he is attending schooling & it's a federal law that they get time off their sentence if they further their education."

      Then I got notification that he may get out in December from the DOC. My cousin is rightfully upset. Child molesters shouldn't get reduced sentences. They should not be eligible to further their education on the public's dime. She also points out that she can't afford to go back to school and provide for her kids but this scumbag gets a free education.
