ENTRAPMENT?????? I only wish we could have more entrapment of people like this. What kind of person would want to teach a child (baby) about sex??? I feel sorry for your children if you have any. I believe in chemical castration and feel this so called animal is a perfect canidate for it. Put him in general population at the jail, and let the guys all know what his crime is. Justice.
