Bye, bye, Jer
I was at the gym after dinner when all three local networks interrupted their shows(never to return to them) at the same second and went to Belfonte for the verdict. I raced home to watch it as it was announced in 20 minutes. You have NO idea how big this is around here. So everyone was nervous but in 45 out of 48 counts, he was guilty. The jury of his peers as he requested believed everyone of the kids, and the only questions they had were concerning the two who were never found but were witnessed by McQuerry and the janitor. It was very emotional, and I know no one involved.
I am very proud of the dignified way this trial was held and the way the attorney general's office pursued this. The judge was excellent. He did not let this turn into a circus, and I don't think the jury will comment. Kudos to my state. Sent two pedophiles to jail today.
Finally the smirk and smile was wiped off this hideous man's face. Now healing for the victims may begin.
