Indiana man gets life for molesting infant girl
The Indy Channel ^ | May 16, 2014 | AP

Posted on 05/16/2014 6:33:04 PM PDT by digger48

HAMMOND, Ind. - A northwestern Indiana man who admitted repeatedly sexually molesting an infant girl has been sentenced to life in prison plus 85 years in a crime a federal judge called "horrific."

U.S. District Court Judge Rudy Lozano on Thursday rejected a request by Christopher Bour for the mandatory minimum of 30 years in prison, citing the nature of the Gary man's crime, which began when the infant was 4 months old.

..................

He admitted paying a woman $500 to have sex with a 4-month-old infant girl. Prosecutors said that arrangement lasted until the child was 18 months old, during which time Bour had molested the infant on eight occasions.

The woman, who met Bour in 2011 through a dating service, also pleaded guilty in the case and is awaiting sentencing. She has admitted being in the room with Bour and the baby on all but the last meeting in 2012, when he paid her extra to be alone with the child.

He needs to be fed into a wood chipper feet first.

I wonder what the “woman’s” sentence is going to be, because quite frankly, the same thing needs to be done to “her” as well.

“Life in prison” might amount to one week or less as soon as the other inmates hear about it.

I understand child molesters don't do very well in the slammer. No punishment is too hard, and then they go to hell.

How in the world do people rationalize this behavior to themselves?

Are they thinking, “This is an infant and she won’t remember anything?”

More likely, they aren’t thinking at all.

There is nothing, NOTHING, that a civilized society could come up with to punish these cretins as they should be punished. But I know Someone Who will, someday.

The judge did good since I’m assuming death is off the table. Actually his lifespan in prison would have been far longer had he received a death sentence. His final punishment on this Earth will be handed out by one or more of his fellow prisoners (who are not fond of child molesters, let alone infant molesters).

And I agree that the mother should get an equally long sentence for subjecting her children to this abuse.

This is what happened to one of Indianas molestor/murderer shortly after his arrival to prison

 photo katies-revenge-enlarge-092906.jpg

Child molesters rank near the bottom of the prison hierarchy and are often brutalized by other inmates. Tattoos are against prison regulations, but inmates often fashion crude tattoo instruments with plastic utensils and needles. Stockelman's tattoo covers nearly his entire forehead. "If I had to guess I'd say it's a statement from the inmates," said Collman's father, John Neace.

Actually I don’t think that it said she was the mother. It just said “a woman”, which, to me, raises some other questions.

Excellent point that made me look a bit further...

“....she met Christopher M. Bour through a dating service in 2011 and that they agreed to meet at her place. That was when Bour started asking her about two children she had access to, both girls, who were 4 months and 3 years old at the time.”

The only justice here is that the child wont remember it and will be spared a lifetime of horror. Robbing a childs sexuality is the most vile form of human depravity. I’m rarely a death penalty supporter but cases like this demand it.

I wish that were true, but it's probably not. All kinds of symptoms, both physical and psychological, may mar the child for life.

“Hillard, who is being held without bond, faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 30 years to life in prison on the count of selling a child.”

Yes, “had access to”... Maybe they don’t know the relationship at this point. But she also may be a babysitter, girlfriend of one of the parents, etc .

Hmmm.

You are right about that. Perhaps in the case of these two an expert would be good.

I think If the wood chipper would offer any sort of respite to these people, I would opt to go with an old method referred to as “The Slow Burn”.

I won’t describe it other than to say it is exactly what it sounds like, but yeah, I don’t think incarceration is a suitable punishment for these ones.

You are both right, but consider what if he was a wealthy, well connected pervert who molested his own children, then he wouldn’t even have had his hand slapped! Another situation begging for The Kersey Brigade!

Both should hang together in public square and be televised. One thing puzzles me about this kind of thing though. If NSA is surveilling everyone on cells, computers, etc., then how in the freaking hell don’t they catch this garbage before the act goes down.

NO! He needs to be doubled ,over back of head to heels and be fed into the chopper offending organ first. Feet first, he might not live to realize his loss.

I'm a little bloodthirsty when people molest babies and children.

50 years ago they WOULD have been hanged; but now our nation is more inclusive and we consider all cultures and all religious/sexual practices equal don’t ya know.
Guess I am just to old to appreciate multiculturalism. I still have lots of rope (though I prefer barbed wire) and trees.

“50 years ago they WOULD have been hanged”

50 years ago, the Warren Court was re-writing the constitution devising all kinds of new rights for Miranda and Juan Corona and loosing a generation of violent murderers onto our streets. Try 75 years ago.
