KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A former pastor who repeatedly raped his adopted teenage daughter has been given an effective 12 year prison sentence.The Knoxville News Sentinel reports prosecutors sought the maximum term of 72 years behind bars. The judge cited David Richards longtime ministry and the support he still receives as mitigating factors. More than 30 people showed up to support Richards at the sentencing last week. The victim was 16 when she reported the abuse, saying it began two years earlier. She told authorities where they could find DNA evidence at her home and said Richards had texted her about taking their relationship "to the next level." Authorities said they found her mattress stripped bare and his phone factory reset, but they were able to recover his DNA.

Conservatives will agree. That 12 year old girl deserved to get raped. Apparently God loves rape. Especially in cases of ------.

The Republican Party has turned into the pro rape party pretty quickly.

Convicts HATE child rapists, especially if they have daughters of their own. These days the inmates have illegal smart phones and will take a video of them running a train on the former pastor. They'll send it to a family member, like a parent, for free. They can show the teen if they choose.

This is outrageous! Under Sharia it's nine, because of what Mohamed did in the Koran.

This is why no society is better than any other: we don't have legal pedophilia.
