Only 5 years behind bars for sexually abusing a child?

Something to keep in mind- Child predators are very cunning and manipulative. They know every trick on how to groom, threaten, lie, and put the fear of god into their victims and sometimes even their family members. While they are grooming the child, they devote lots of time and energy building trust with them by giving them money and gifts. They tend to make the child feel that they are special and loved.

They also appear to do a lot of goods things, they can be very charismatic and you may think they would never harm a child. They have to be this way, in order to not get caught and to continue to abuse

Sexual predators are often powerful and well-loved. It would be comforting if those who preyed on the vulnerable were obvious social misfits whose appearance would somehow set off alarm bells and give us the willies or the creeps. They rarely do.

Usually, predators are among the last people we would suspect of sexually violating others.

It is extremely rare that a child predator has only one victim. Some have many. Child predators need to be kept far away from kids forever.

So let's hope that every person who saw, suspects or may have been harmed by Ryker Anthony Hill or Holly Jo Logan, will find the courage and strength to speak up and contact police, no matter how long ago the abuse happened.

Keep in mind your silence only hurts, and by speaking up there is a chance for healing, exposing the truth, and therefore protecting others.
