    Convicted Child Molester Receives Probation but...

    HOUSTON -- A convicted child molester was not sentenced to any prison time and told the court he may not follow the rules of his probation, KPRC Local 2 reported Wednesday.
    Jose Bernabe Flores, 30, was convicted of molesting a 7-year-old girl. The conviction carries a sentence from two to 20 years in prison. But, since Flores has never been convicted in the past, he was eligible for probation, which is what a jury gave him...
    A judge placed conditions on Flores' four years probation. He cannot be within 1,000 feet of places where children gather, such as schools and parks. He cannot be alone with any child, including his son. Flores must also register as a sex offender, undergo counseling with a sex therapist and submit to random lie detector tests.
    ...But, when Flores' defense attorney asked him in court if he would comply with the conditions of his probation, Flores said, "I'll think about it"..

    What on earth was that jury thinking? And can't judges override a jury's decision?

    It's no wonder child predators have no fear...the law gives them little reason to be afraid!

    I have no words for this. I can't even believe it. How long do we wait until he does it again?
