    TX - Steven Hawkins for child pornography, Austin, 2003

    A Texan who watched a live Internet broadcast of the sexual molestation of a [2 month old] baby by the child's father -- and who sent messages with instructions -- is going to prison.

    A federal judge in Austin today sentenced 47-year-old Steven Keith Hawkins to 17 and a-half years behind bars.

    The Austin man pleaded guilty in September to two counts of transporting and shipping material involving the sexual exploitation of a minor and one count of possession of material involving the sexual exploitation of a minor.

    The sentence was harsher than the ten years that a judge in California gave 42-year-old Larry Michael Jeffs -- the man convicted of transmitting the video images.

    I hardly know how to respond to these anymore.

    Where was the mother in all of this?

    I am utterly speechless!!! I just don't know how much sicker people can get in this world anymore.
    It's my own two cents. You don't have to read or like it.

    I know. I don't know what to say other than I hope these ba$tards rot in hell. What kind of a sick person does this to any child, especially a 2 month old.

    I think these sick people should be put to death immediately and get them out of our society. Maybe that will send a message to other sickos out there that have plans to do the same thing. In my eyes, these sickos aren't even human.

    I think BOTH of these sickos should have been sentenced to life. Why on earth wasn't the molester sentenced to more time??

    That's what I'm wondering. I guess this part of the article explains the sentence:

    But authorities say Jeffs -- of El Dorado Hills, California -- helped prosecutors nab other pedophiles.

    Ten years for raping an infant! I think he should have bargained for a life sentence. It's this kind of sentencing that produces child murderers.

    Ten years is not nearly enough. This should have been a death penalty case, imo. Then they could get his help in exchange for LWOP.

    He probably was, or will be, but it was state time, not federal. Federal time has to be served before state time.

    It's a just the federal sentencing. The state no doubt already has him serving time for rape as well.

    I think they should charge these rapist not only with rape, but also attempted murder, as the act that they engage in could easily lead to death for the child. I hate these types of cases!
    I wonder how many other pedofiles the rapist actually helped convict? Was there more than one watching the video? I am glad the judge in Texas gave so much time to the guy watching! He deserved it! I hate that these guys not only rape these babies, but that other men get off watching and encouraging them!
    Thank God it wasn't Cincinnati again.
    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?
