Whay waste the time and money on a deviant like this?

Upon conviction the offender will receive 5 years to life for all six counts of sexual assault against the child. That means a minimum of 30 years but in all probability many more years. Off topic but the Missouri General Assembly passed ALL proposed improvements to our state rape and domestic violence laws on the last day in session. That is great news for women!

At her tender age the girl may believe she gave her consent but when she gets older and realizes she was grievously violated and exploited anger will set in. Harsh punishment for the perpetrator by the criminal justice system will make it easier for the girl to forgive her attacker from her heart. Whether she is a Christian or not she needs to forgive so she can receive spiritual healing. Cases like this one exemplify why I am such a firm supporter of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) and our tough improved rape and domestic violence laws.
