    He’s a bad person he always was we grew up together…. Jackpot is what he said as he came in front of a youngster… I honestly feel bad for the family that was involved.

      I grew up with him and he groomed a friend of ours little sister for years. When she got older he broke off the relationship. Not surprised in the least. I hope the victim and the family can finally have some peace.
