What is disturbing is that these creeps stand a chance at a short prison sentence and then being paroled. It would be likely that they have a long rap sheet. We need to get tough on these type of crimes. A registry needs to be created for these type of criminals. These people were invited to a home. If the victim had known their history, they might not have invited them over.
