    FL - Joshua Palin for child molestation, Clay County, 2005

    The man accused of taking a 13-year-old Duval County girl to his home for sex and molesting children at a Clay County day-care center has been arrested on nine new charges of lewd and lascivious battery and one charge of lewd and lascivious conduct. The Clay County Sheriff's Office served a warrant on Johsua Palin Tuesday that represents eight additional alleged victims, all Clay County children.

    All these charges stem from alleged incidents that took place during truth-or-dare games at Kids Palace, where Palin allegedly fondled or molested the victims, or they fondled and molested each other. The victims range in age from 9 to 14 years old.

    "They were made to feel that they were his special friends, and that anything he did or said was OK," CCSO deputy Debbie Wheeler said. "Their parents trusted him, so they trusted him."

    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Joshua Allen Palin

    Sentence: 15 years

    Offense: Lewd/Lacivious Battery Sex with Victim 12-15

    Sentence: 17 years each count

    These sentences are all concurrent.
    Current Release Date: 03/25/2021

    I really don't see the point of perps being given separate sentences for different counts and then having them all run at the same time. What is the point of bothering to charge and prove all of these various acts, only to have essentially 1 sentence be activated? If they are sentenced separately for separate crimes, they should have to serve each sentence consecutively. This really irks me to see over and over again. Does anyone have any thoughts on this?

    ITA, Belinda. It seems incredibly pointless that multiple crimes can be committed but that only one jail term is served. I can't wrap my head around that either.
