what does this mean?
This "article" is so misleading as to be ludicrous. This guy, an illegal alien, supposedly touched.... touched! a young girl in a park. He was not tried nor convicted at this point, just thrown in jail. Once in jail, the Orange County California jailers purposefully let the word slip out that he was a child molester to the entire jail inmate population, threw him in with the entire inmate population and they then beat him so badly that he was brain damaged. All the while these beatings are taking place, the jailers KNEW what was happening and did't bother to stop it.
The man was severely disabled to the point where he has to have caregivers.
The medical liens are for his medical expenses.
The article clearly says that it was a plea deal. The original molestation charge was reduced to one of battery. Certainly you know that happens all the time in our system. It’s just another example of a molester (or perpetrator of ANY other crime) cutting a deal with the prosecutor for a lesser charge. You’re naive if you can’t see this as a repeat of something that happens a million times a day in our judicial system. Unfortunately, almost never is the criminal charged with the full counts of his felonies.
