Interesting newscast; great lack of detail and the man that gave his opinion? “A predator is still a predator, you can’t change ’em…well and idiot is still and idiot too, can they be changed? Just saying.

My thoughts on this particular ruling is that the only reason the judge ruled in this mans favor is that his probation officer screwed-up and was not specific when the conditions were amended so he could participate in his kids activities. Pardon me… but there is no way in hell this man should be allowed to attend any Girl Scout functions. According to the newscast his offense in 2009 was for statutory rape with a 15yo in this same troop. I don’t blame any parents for being concerned.
What it boils down to is the probation department is going to be in hot water over this and I can pretty much guarantee that they won’t allow any future allowance of this type and that will affect many family’s of registrants in the future who want to attend their kids activities. I don’t view this as a win.

To clear up some confusion, I attended the trial. He was a police officer who molested a child he met through the same girl scout program. There were other victims – some testified and some declined. The girl was 15 when the trial happened – I think she was 12 when they met. Still want to send your little ones to these meetings?
