Wasn't the first time he did this. PG county dropped the ball on putting this sicko away 5 years earlier. This tragedy could have been prevented. Instead four more children are scarred. Great job PG county police.

Apparently, he is back on the street after a judge decided he should get out on bond yet again. I don't understand a justice system that would allow this monster to go free again and again. And I don't want to live in a city that allows him to go free.
