Most people think this is a rare occurance. It is not. Offenders want compliant victims and a disabling medication does just the trick for these freaks. There is no fixin this kind of broke. He is already a Convicted Offender and like 99% of sex offenders cant help but stick their hand in the fire and then blame the fire for getting burned. Put a needle in his arm and be done with this worthless example of DNA. If this guy ends up Back out on the street, the next victim he will KILL, take it to the bank.
