    So why was he released so soon after the second charge? Thats our judicial system for you.

    Why do they keep letting these people out? Let all the non violent drug offenders out of prison, and put these people in there for life.

    So after looking this dude up on case net, he has yet to satisfy all of the fines he received in 1998. He has appeared before Judge Marquart two times for his sex offenses, Judge Taylor for drugs and Judge Kellogg for failing to register as a sex offender. Why he keeps getting a slap on the wrist for being a danger to society is beyond me! Perhaps we need to ask these judges!

    Well you do realize these judges are up for re-election rather often yet the reality is their jobs are more secure than yours or mine because people just vote to keep them – personally I think change is good.

    WTF?? Three times and he is out.. Hell you get more punishment for drugs then you do molesting a child or killing someone…Pure ignorance…This could of been prevented…. Just keep letting them out …Whats more disturbing is this could be prevented if theyd just lock em all up and throw away the keys… I am sorry but I could care less what happens to people like this…Hand em over to the prison…

    I like a lot of the comments on here. I have said this before………..You cannot successfully treat a pedophile, castration would not work to stop them either. They have to be put to death or imprisoned for life without the possibility of parole.

    Wow! I personally know Jeff & have for the last 3 years, I also know his victim & have known her 3 years also. I know this family very well & always thought that Jeff was a little off. I now just feel bad for his victim, his son & his girlfriend. I hope they give his ass what he deserves, and I hope he never walks these streets again! Sick bastard.
