    That young girls life is ruined. Death would be to good for this piece of garbage. He should be slowly and methodically tortured to the point of death, and then brought back to suffer some more. I would love to spend some alone time with this guy.

    Seems those monitors need to be hardened some more or cancelled all together opting rather to keep the offender incarcerated. Those bracelets are a joke..
