Final Sentencing in Tee Kay Babysitters 'Horrific' Child Abuse Case

John Scott Thomas III received nine 30-year concurrent sentences, the longest of the three convicted child molesters.

The judge set the final sentence yesterday in a case that was described by law enforcement officials as "the most horrific" child abuse case they'd ever seen, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

The sexual assaults took place at the Tee Kay Mobile Manor off I-64 in unincorporated St. Charles County in 2011. Three girls, ages 7 months, 3 years and 5 years old, were sexualy assaulted by three neighbors who were babysitting.

I knew John when he was a little boy, this is just so shocking that who was once the sweetest kid around could do such horrific things. I'm sorry John, but I hope they fry your ass!!
