    I don't think that the comments up here regarding rather or not he is illegal has anything to do with being "rascist". Its been to argue as to why HIS bond was so high when some others that committ the same crime don't get such a high bond. If he is illegal, and/or has any ties out of country, that makes him a high flight risk, and we all know how hard it could be to get him back over here if he makes it across the border. I personally think that anybody that committs such a crime should be sentenced to death. They have no place in this society as far as I'm concerned.

    His bond is prob so high bc he might be a high risk to run if he gets out

    He will get what he deserves once locked up. The population will see to that.

    Why does this have to be about the fact that this sick man could and maybe is an Illegal person in this country??? What does this have anything to do with the fact that this lil girl will have to deal with this all her life?? You people make me sick(Racist)!!!! I see no color and you should do the same. It could have been one of your own race that did this to that poor lil girl!!! I will be praying for her and her family. Hope this man gets life in jail and never sees the streets again. If he does, he will probably do this again! My god be with that lil angel and her family.....and by the way god makes no mistakes, so when your being an ignorant racist individual think about that!!! Have a blessed day!

    I agree, you can't watch your child 24 hours a day, but this abuse was going on for over a year. Where were this child's parents while this girl was going to his apartment to watch cartoons? How can any parent be that oblivious?

    Not trying to put my business out on the front street. The bond that my significate other had was one million, and that was because he was charged with indecnt liberties with a minor and first-degree rape. I guess depend on how many counts they have. Don't get me wrong you can not be around a child twenty-fours in a day. I said that to say this, I was at work when this happened to me. I was trying to provide for my children and I thought that the person babysitting would be fine. I pray for this individual and the victim. For the victim make sure they seek help, because being that age they won't trust hardly no one. This is sicken, it brings back memories and tears. For him when he and if he found guilty of all charges the men in prison will not give him any slack once they find out. Not trying to defend anyone who does things like this we as people are innocent until proven guilty. Unless they have reliable evidence.

    What you guys don't know is that they protect people like this in prison. Molestars and rapeist have more rights and more freedom in prison. Have'nt you guys watched JAIL on one of those cable channels and LOCK UP on the natgeo channel.
