    He’s a child molestor. No matter what crime an inmate has committed, any child molester/killer/abuser is the worst of the worst. They’re gonna get shanked no matter what. Serves them right.

    Well first off, if the guy was sentenced with sexual misconduct with a child in St. Francois County, and the state place him in FCC, that was negligence on the states part, second, The only good child molester is a dead child molester, sorry folks but that is one disease you can not cure.
