    Bonnie & Clyde were 'habitual felons'. They got totally shot and destroyed in an ambush, in the end.

    He needs to b put under the jail for rape because when he goes to prison he will more than likely repeat this crime in prison.This guy is on drugs especially E pills!He has great parents but he is hard headed and does stupid things

    good guy!!! u have lost your mind!!! anyone who knows him knows he is CRAZY!! if u think he is such a good person just ask the women he has beat and the other women he has raped this is not his first time doing this its just the first time the victim told it. how many times has he shot at people or robed someone everyone knows how he is its not a secret. you can b a family member and he would do the same to you.

    OMG, put this guy away. It looks to me like he shouldn't have gotten out the last time. Ok Ok you people trying to say he's a good guy and he's your friend. Something must be wrong with you too then. Stay away from this trash, or he will infect you too with his evil ways.. This person is a prime example of what not to do in your life and what is wrong with this world today. I feel sorry for him. He is missing out on so much just by being good and doing the right thing.

    WOW! It amazes me the number of people that are taking up for this "good guy". He is a habitual felon, he has been convicted of more than one felony to be called habitual. I know that there are a lot of young girls that dress and act a lot older than they really are but it doesn't say statutory rape it says rape and taking indecent liberties with a child so I'll bet she was not willing. I feel sorry this person's "good family", sometimes no matter how good the family is a bad seed will sprout. He needs to be put somewhere so honest, decent people will be protected from him.

      people don't get a habitual felon rap by being a "good guy"! He has been convicted before and he will commit more crimes, he needs to be off the streets and in Central Prison.

      Has society fallen so far that a drug dealing, woman beating, child molesting rapist is considered a "good guy"?
