Now would be a good time for Mr. Yerton's wife, to make an honest and heart felt attempt to reconcile with her son, whom her husband molested. She cannot recover her husband now. He will be prison for quite awhile. She tossed her son aside for the love of a self desturtive narcisists and allowed him to continue in a self destructive behavior that destroyed her family. Her son deserved better, a lot better than he got. She should put alot of distance between herself and her husband now, and show her son how really sorry she is for not believing in him. If her husband loves her like he says he does (very doubtful), and if he loves kids like he says he does (too much), then he should have no problem with her doing this, and if fact, should be insisting upon it. It's time to heal these very deep wounds and close the distance between a mother and a son. They both need each other very badly right now. I pray that niether one will have hardened their hearts in such a way, to make this impossible.

His victims, the jury of 12 of his peers, have spoken. It does no good to deny what is apparent to others. How did he and the school system explain away the homo sexual porn on his computer at home and at school? He said he was been recovery programs before. They why is the junk still on his computer, especially at school???? Doesn't the school system have sophistacated software screening programs to prevent this? And if he has been in rehab/recovery,where is his accountability partner in all of this mess? Let me guess--It's his wife, right? She has been inabled him all this time instead of holding him accountable. She even walked away from her own son (previsous marriage), choosing to believe her now husband, Mr. Yerton, over what her son was telling her all these years. Now she has no husband, wothless as he was, and no son. This boy, even went so far as to file a Restraining Order on his Step Dad to keep him away. I know there still are many that believe in his innocence, but there are just far too many coincidents to be ignored here. Why are so many still trying ot enable him with all this forgiveness hpye without holding him accountable for his actions?? I don't wish him ill will, but finally someone(the State) is holding him accoutable in a very severe way. That is truly sad and regrettable for all involved.. This has been a colossal failure on the part of many.

i don't understand how something like this can happen for so long and to so many kids without being found out. i agree with dukshanee. i hope he gets molested TO DEATH. he definately deserves it. what makes it even worse is that he was in our school system.

YAY! Another child molester off the streets and out of the school system. I'm just grateful he wasn't tried in Florida.

GOOD! This piece of waste deserves to feel like he is dying the rest of his life. FORGET killing OR hurting him- he did this all to himself. CASE CLOSED.

Child molestion is the same as murder,this pud murders souls and should be treated accordingly,bet he ends up costing the taxpayer millions,if the jury convicts drag his sorry butt to the gallows then let the buzzards have what's left.Years of excessive self abuse and perversion show on his face.What the hell good is he for anyway?

shoot the sick ba***rd in he head, he doesn't deserve to live so he can do it again. He can't be reformed, just kill him now, he knew what he was doing and knew it was wrong but chose to do it....get rid of him or the next time he does it the DA and judge on his case will be to blame, hope they get sued when he molests again if they let him out to do it again.
