Oh I'm sure he " accidentally" downloaded all that child porn and then just happened to "accidentally" pass it on, I'm sorry I don't buy it, and if it were my family member he would be cut out and no contact ever again. Exploitation of children is just disgusting. Wake up dude

He confessed to having 300,000 images/videos mostly involving children. Not sure how he going to STAY STRONG at this point.

Plenty of time to "get strong" in the slammer....Will be plenty of child porn freaks in there to share stories with too. Best part about this is that cons don't like rippers. His life in prison will will really suck. Every family member of every kid he's ever diddled should be allowed to bash him five times with a shovel before he shuffles off to the pen.

David you are a complete fool to say something like that. They found 300,000 images not three. He can't be fixed and should be put out of everyone's misery.
