…convictions and one Felony Indecent Liberty with a child connviction. He amazingly survived for over 10 years in Central Prison. He’s living life dangerously by maintaining his residence in the same county where he was convicted as a pedophile!

Oh well! Another several years at the “GreyRock Inn and Special Resort”.
