I originally posted about Max David Miller here. Not only did he plead guilty to luring underage girls over the Canadian social site Nexopia but he also had sex (child rape) with the girls after getting them drunk. He solicited girls as young as 10-years-old. Prosecutors are asking for a sentence of 10-12 years.
In court last week Miller ‘apologized’ to his victims while trying to get leniency from the court…
“I am truly sorry . . . primarily for the psychological problems and psychiatric trauma to the victims,”
“I want help and I want to be a contributing member of society.”
His lawyer had this to say…
“The psychological reports tell of his rehabilitation and his ability to rehabilitate himself for his deviancy,” said Hepner. “He is motivated to rehabilitate himself.
“He’s still a young man and a first-time offender. To give him a 10-year sentence would be crushing.”
You know what was crushing? The mental and physical damage that this scumbag inflicted on his victims. He may be a first time offender in the eyes of the law but he had multiple victims. In reality this was probably his first time in being caught.
10 years is a joke of a sentence for what this serial predator did. He should be put away for life. Unfortunately if history is any indicator he’ll probably only get 5 years then be out again with plenty of time to find more victims.
UPDATE 12/1/2011: He got 10 years.
