First of all I use to think people changed, but this is definitely in this males
DNA and he needs to spend a lot of time in prison where he can get treatment and
medication. I feel for the sweet lady this happened to because I know she wants
to forget and move on but it will be difficult. We are spiritual beings in a
physical body and she won't be able to just move on. If you are reading
this and this happened to you, make it your life's purpose to help others
recover from rape and assault. Your husband had the better idea punish him to
the full extent of the law. It's all this perpetrator can understand
This is simply a mild side effect of cultural diversity. It's worth it in
the end and we should all get used to it.
Prosecutors in Utah sure seem to agree to plea agreements that overly benefit
criminals. Time to change that before Utah becomes Vermont!
Attempted murder...and rape. 25 years minimum.
@ Big BubbaIMHO...Seldom if ever.If anyone knew a person
with this record was living next door, how would you respond?
I really wish our prosecutors would stop pleading everything down. If you have
evidence for the charge then the charge should be prosecuted. If you dont then
dont bring the charge. I also think this guy should never get out of
prison. This was attempted aggravated murder. This is not something any sane
person could ever do.
We have to learn everything we can about why so many young people are committing
so many horrific crimes. We can't prevent them if we don't fully
understand them. He needs to be locked up for a long time with opportunity for
full rehabilitation to determine if he can safely be returned to society.
the teen revealed ahead of sentencing he had grown tired of
"numerous altercations" in his home
skipping class during that
period of time to meet up with others in parks and do drugs...'Although small and somewhat vague, I appreciate the DN for reporting this bit
of information. We are seeing young people commit some of the most horrific
crimes imaginable. We need to start looking for common threads. From this we
have at least two data points: violence at home and drugs. Society
needs journalists to do in-depth investigative reporting on these violent
child-criminals. They should ask everyone everything and lay it out there. We
need more people to have eyes on this problem. Somehow our society has become
toxic to kids - young boys especially. Shine a light on it.
A typical case where they are sorry they got caught. His comments seem pretty
hollow. Needs a long period of detention.
Can someone who commits a terrible crime like this can be re-integrated into
society without harming someone else?
