  1. I truly hope he gets what he deserves in prison. 11 years is not nearly enough what he truly deserves thank you Anthony pignataro I have two younger sisters and I’m definitely going to speak to them about the dangerous of meeting strangers online

    1. What the hell ? 11 years for all that . i thought i was reading a typo , are you serious man ? Im outraged at this bullshit because this little girl is ruined for life so therefore his life should have been spent in jail.

  2. 11 years is not enough time for someone who permanently has stolen the childhood innocence of this young girl. Hopefully the sentence will be increased due to public outcry and this pedophile will be sodomized/tortured daily to remind him of what a POS he is

  3. I have a friend who did almost that much time for dealing pot a few years ago, before it basically became legal. 11 years 6 months is how long I would hang this guy upside down by his toes……
