I'm glad the two women involved were heavily sentenced as well.

I'm not usually an "eye for an eye" type person, but I'm glad his public persona will make him well known within the prison community.

May his 35 years go very, very slowly.

And same for the two "mothers" involved.

I am glad he got such a long time.

Yes. Along the lines of "Who's a pretty boy then?"

I want to know why he got all the attention in this case? The women were just as culpable and vile in this. What parent allows this - nay - makes it happen? Why did they get lesser sentences?

He'll only be 56 when released. I only hope he can achieve some sort of rehabilitation in that time.

No words for the kids of parents who would hand their babies over to a monster.

Although I am hoping for a cunningly sharpened bic to the artery in the groin via his penis personally.

I don't think the women will have a good time of it either despite not being famous.

pity they have a separate safe prison with in a prison for these people, they found that if word go out that they were in for the other prisoners tended to take matters into their own hands.

Why would this be a bad thing for this sort of "person"?

One was a minor (aged17) I think and the judge seem to accept coercion or manipulation was a factor.

It's such an ugly story it's almost hard to believe anyone could be so twisted.

I feel heartbroken thinking about the babies involved. At some point they will find out about this.

I wonder if their mothers will have any rights to access when they're released.

Unless the mother grew up in an environment where sex with young children was the norm I wouldn't have accepted that as any excuse.

I hope those children are given new names and adopted out under strict closed adoptions.
