Aug 19, 2005 -- Circuit Court Judge John H. Chamblin this morning reduced a jury’s recommended sentence by five years for an Ashburn man convicted of felony child abuse and malicious wounding of an infant.

Democrats will want this man elevated to the Supreme Court.

Remember - per Judge Lefkow of Chicago, you CANNOT criticize judges anymore because it puts their lives in danger (except conservatives like Judge Roberts).

I spent some time looking over the sex offender website for NC. It appears to me that about 1/2 of these guys recieved probation only sentences.

Miller burned the child with a lighter, branded an “X” on the infant and broke the child’s jaw.

It wasn't his fault, it was Society's.

What's even worse is that the jury could have given him 30, but they gave him 20.

The guy branded an X into an infant with a lighter.

How do you not recommend the absolute maximum?

No to mention he was the mothers "boyfriend."

I'm sure she isn't the wisest mother on earth...

At the time of the crimes, which occurred April 9, 2004, Miller was dating the infant’s mother, who was at work during the abuse. Miller burned the child with a lighter, branded an “X” on the infant and broke the child’s jaw. The doctor’s report listed 15 injuries the child sustained, which included bleeding of the brain, heavy bruising, cuts and multiple circular burns.

Indeed abusers of children are at the low end of the food chain, but I have a feeling this guy's going to live a good long time and hate every last second of it. Chances are, any punishment we can think of here will be taken to a much further extreme once word of what he did gets around.

What, you think there's honor among scum?

Or do you think prison is really like what we see on TV?

Rock on!!! Public stoning, public humiliation like being forced to wear a sign on a street corner all day saying I AM A CHILD ABUSER.

Here in MA a loser who abused an animal got 2 1/2 years, a loser who sexually abused a child got 2 years, go figure.

How much time did the scum who killed Jeffrey Curley get? They really needed to be publicly executed.

Probably not, I'm thinking it's Bush's fault, just like everything else is, including Katrina. (wait and see)

I was thinking karl Rover generated katrina, to take the coverage off of Cindy Sheehan...

(Actually, I think the more coverage this person gets, the better. Kinda like Michael Moore.)

Because the kid's still alive and doing well...That's where I disagree with O'Reilly...

If you get 20 or 30 years, or life in prison, you may as well kill the kid and try to get rid of the evidence...It's sometimes the difference between abused and alive, and dead...

Let me try again as I have no idea what was offensive in my previous post.

When the public officals will not carry out the will of the citizens, the citizens will act.

Well, I hope it's like that prison they mentioned on a recent Cold Case Files program.

Seemed this one POS got life insurance policies on his wives and then pushed them off cliffs. He got away with it in the 70s but got nailed for that and another one in the 90s (I think).

Got sent to prison. A few months later he was found dead at the bottom of a 30' cliff with a piece of tape over his mouth and the word "GERONIMO!" written on his forehead.

The prison reported it as a [ahem] suicide.

It was the first time I stood up and clapped while watching TV.

The Curley case should've been tried by the feds, and not just for the possibility of the death penalty, either.

I have had two close friends who worked at prisons. Child abusers/rapists should fear for their lives in prison from what I hear.

Screw the torture; just kill him somewhat slowly.

My mother-in-law works at a prison in Upstate NY and most of the inmates do have families of their own. They don't take kindly to anyone who mistreats kids (even if they might not have been the most loving fathers themselves.)

Let's hope this guy is in the general population and word gets out as to what he is in for. Let's see who gets branded with a lighter then.......
