A 79-year-old California businessman named Lyle Burgess was found guilty of sexually molesting a 5-year-old girl in California, and you would think that he would be going to prison for a very long time.

Nope.

Instead, he will only serve 90 days of house arrest

The California businessman pleaded no contest to statutory rape of a 5-year-old girl in 2016. According to KTXL, he will not be required to register as a sex offender.

 

“A 5-6-year-old little girl was molested. Normally, the sentence is state prison and then when you’re released, you have to register as a sex offender,” family attorney Ken Meleyco told KTXL.

So why did he get off so easily?

Well, it turns out that he is “very wealthy”

Meleyco said Burgess is very wealthy.

 

“It’s just an example of how the wealthy people, time and time again, escape the penalty for what they did,” Meleyco told KTXL.

What is wrong with our country?

Almost everyone will find something in my articles that will deeply upset them. That is okay. I am a truthseeker. I just call it like I see it. If you disagree with me on some issues I will not be offended. I hope that you will not be offended if I disagree with you on some issues.

One of the things that you should know about me is that I put a very high priority on love. Even though I write about a lot of heavy issues, hopefully I am doing it with a loving heart. If we want to make it through the times that are coming we have got to start learning how to love one another.

The world is becoming a very cold, cruel place. It sure could use a lot more love.

Another thing that you should know about me is that I am a Christian. And I am one of those Christians that actually believes the Bible, and there are a lot of people out there that don’t like people like that.

I believe that God loves us very much and that He sent His Son Jesus Christ to this earth to die on the cross for our sins.
