    His father should be commended for doing the right thing and turning him in. Paul should be sent to prison for the rest of his life... Seems to me he has done things of this nature in the past. If he did, maybe the courts weren't tuff enough and this poor gal ends up paying the price. Hope they don't let him out again.

    Oh no, he shouldn't get life! Put him on death row, and then we won't have to pay to support him.

    Women today are looking for someone to love them and cherish them and tell them that they are pretty. They don't need people like this putting them through torment, this is something that she will always remember, the Next man will never have a chance if he is not careful about the things He does and say,She has gone through trama, and this man should be put in a six foot hole and left to rot, what was he thinking what was going through His mind, did he forget this was a women not a Dog, What ever happen to him he deserves it, No mercy for him because he did not show this Lady any. I wish the best for Her, she deserves it after what has happen.

    I wish this people that do this kind of thing to other people would stop and think about this ( what if it was their mother in this place? ) maybe that would change their minds. Why do if have to beat someone rape them and then cut their hair that's just crazy. I gald that he has no bond he should get LIFE!!!!!!!!

    So glad that there is no bond. The poor woman must surely have feared for her life. Hope she will be okay.
