Wow Eric Perkin sounds like a real scumbag, he should be locked up for years. Steven on the other hand should be given a break, a young child makes mistakes and I would hate to see his future ruined over one unfortunate decision. I am thankful I didn't raise my kids in such a scary time and will pray for Mr. Wilson
