    The law put him on probation for this charge and kept him free to go on to rape two little boys after the 12 year old girl. And he also is married to his step daughter who he started having an affair with by the time she was 8. And the law kept him free. He also babysat a 5 year old little boy who lived with him. If he raped and molested a 10 and 11 year old boy. What did he do to the 5 year old. And the law doesnt care. The 5 year olds name is bruce. Somone needs to track that baby down. And pierce cpunty needs to hurry up and charge him for the rape of a little boy. Hello. Why isnt he being charged. If the detective working the case was dealing with his family or friend. The interview would have been done. On top of being assaulted by brandon. Now the police is taking forever to bring up new charges. They just keep letting these freaks go to harm others
