I’ve posted about Vincent Mickle of Philadelphia before. He was the girls soccer coach who was arrested back in March of 2010 for posing as a 17-year-old on MySpace in order to get minor girls to have sex with him. He would also use the old supplying them with booze and weed because let’s face it, there’s no way he can pass as 17.
Mickle pleaded guilty back in June of 2011 to charges of criminal solicitation to commit sexual acts with someone under age 16, unlawful sexual contact with minors, criminal solicitation to commit statutory sexual assault, corruption of minors, and child pornography. The child porn charges stem from the fact that he would get his victims to send him explicit photos of themselves.
On my last post about Mickle I said that he was looking at a sentence of 265 years even though I knew it would be nearly as long as that since prosecutors were talking about how long he would be on the sex offender registry. Turns out I was right as this past week Mickle was sentenced to 12 1/2 to 25 years in prison with a lifetime on the registry.
None of his victims were on his soccer team like that’s any consolation.
I’m going to go a little off topic here but we often talk about how we wish child predators would get there’s in prison even though they’re usually separated from the general population. How long will it be before these pedophiles and molesters are the majority in our prisons?
