Unfortunately, many molesters get plea deals that aren't very long sentences because victims don't want to testify and who can blame them, but his sentence is outrageous.
My daughter was going to testify that was why we got such a long sentence on a plea deal. He was sentenced to 70 1/2 years but the way the system works he is eligible for parole in 27/12 years but I doubt he gets it the first time and if I have anything to do with it, he won't. It also helped tremendously I think that actual physical evidence of the abuse existed which hardly ever happens. That's why so many people who are close/or family of the molester find it so hard to believe - here is an example from Facts About Child Molestation:
"The backgrounds of many of the individuals ... is shocking," Hayes said. "These defendants come from all walks of life ... This operation puts the lie to the classic stereotypical profile that child predators are nothing more than unemployed drifters. Many of the defendants are, in fact, well-educated and successful in private and professional lives. They work as registered nurses, paramedics, caretakers for mentally ill adults, computer programers and architects."
