    One - you are correct, by definition he is not a pedophile.  So let's instead use a more broad term, child predator, because he indeed is that.

    Two - I also agree that the child's suicide should not be a factor in his sentencing.  I don't think anyone, in any case should be punished for another person's choices.

    However, he very much deserves to be locked up for at least ten years.  He should have never been given that "treatment program" sentence.  He should have been in jail, period.

    He was given a slap on the wrist and he was told clearly what the rules were - and yet he couldn't follow them?

    All that blah blah about the children were his relatives and the sex was with an adult are excuses. He couldn't follow rules that kept his ass out of jail?  Seems HE is the one with the problem, not the prosecution.  Perhaps this magical thinking of his that the rules don't apply to him is what made him think it was okay to have sex with a 14 year old.
