Eleven Years for Day after Christmas Sexual Assault of Woodstock 10-Year Old Girl — 4 Comments

  1. Thank you McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick D. Kenneally for protecting our county after suffering from years of shenanigans and unprofessionalism, you have brought back honor to the McHenry County State’s Attorney’s Office.

  2. Eleven years still doesn’t “feel” like enough for destroying a little girl’s life. 10 years old.

    I know it’s not the higher moral ground, but there are times when I wish sentencing would be 30 minutes in a room full of Mom’s, Dad’s, and weapons of their choosing.

  3. What about the township crooks who ruined thousands of lives?

  4. Agree Murmring.

    11 yrs doesn’t seem to reflect the damages done to this little girl, who isn’t even old enough to be allowed to stay home alone, by law.

    Hammer, I agree with you too.

    While Eric C is falling over himself compllimenting the States Atty for this, I think it’s not enough and doesn’t begin to cover the ‘shenanigans’ of elected officials at the taxpayers expense!
