    I bet that community is struggling now...Hoven seems to be a very small town

    I bet everybody w/i 50-mile radius knows this 'doctor'...I'm from a small town & I know I would just be throwing up sick if I found out my doctor for my whole life collected CP...yuck!

    Sadly, once again a doctor's supporters are wrong--dead wrong. And finally a judge who believes in the theory of consecutive sentences. Very sad for the entire community.....and the victims of this man's sick lust:
