    This person should be sent to a locked sex offender unit at state rehab facility and separated from society for at least of 25 years and forced to undergo long term extensive therapy.

    25 years separated from society minimum.

    We dont punish we separate from society for safety and rehabilitate.

    Long Rehab minium sentences for physical acts against others very important.

    Drug crimes are not violant crimes. Drugs are not a crime. Sex abuse is a crime.
