I originally posted about 39-year-old Lewis Dopp here. He was arrested in Carlisle, Pennsylvania last year for sexually assaulting underage girls that he met through craigslist. He would get them drunk and take advantage of them, once even having another girl record him having sex with one of the girls. The twist on this story is that Dopp used the craigslist ads for babysitters to find his victims. He would even post ads of his own looking for ‘babysitters’.
This past week he was sentenced to 3-6 years in the Penn State…I mean state pen after pleading guilty. (Sorry PSU fans, I couldn’t resist.)
Seriously though that is a joke of a sentence for someone who is a serial sexual predator in my opinion. His attorney even wanted the sentence reduced citing that Dopp has the mental capacity of an 18-year-old. If you click on the link to my original post about Dopp you can see some comments that I believe were left by Dopp under a few different aliases trying to defend himself.
He has a diminished mental capacity all right but that doesn’t mean he didn’t know what he was doing. To me, a diminished mental capacity means someone who was incapable of telling the difference between right and wrong. Dopp is just a moron.
When he gets out in probably less than three years I can almost guarantee he’ll go back to creeping on underage girls using whatever electronic means predators will be using then.
