    I hope and pray for this man if he is guilty of these things. I also hope that the rest of his life will be more livable than his present predicament. Amen

    As his current status is “suspect”, I’m obligated to withhold judgement. But whoever thinks there is any long-term benefit in such misdeeds slinks from a low place.
