  1. I remember when this first happened. The sheriff’s department botched the case from day one. First the neighbor was arrested, and his reputation ruined. He was released, and the case went cold. Then Stanley was arrested, but released, apparently. He deserves more than 20 years


  2. Please add Cold Case Files episode s1 E7 A Family Secret. Thank you.


  3. Not justice. Committed sexually violent crimes in 1982 (20 yrs x 4 + 10 yrs), 1987 (20 yrs x2), 1997 (20 yrs x 2 + 10 yrs), and 1999 (18 yrs). Since these were a series of separate crimes, I think the sentences should run consecutively beginning when he was convicted in 2015. Personally, i wouldn’t cry if he got the dp. He has been a sexual predator for decades and a menace to society. My more deeply held thoughts about this scumbag are not publishable.


  4. I saw this case again on Inv ID “Blood Runs Cold” episode” and it still amazes and angers me that this scumbag will likely be freed in 2033 unless he is dead. He will be 74 y/o. He should not have any hope of release. In some states, 1st degree rape of a child under 12 y/o is a life sentence. Why aren’t at least 2 of his sentences running consecutively!
    I look at his list of convictions and imagine the kids he abused and families are not happy he will be out in 12 years. I’m done.
