Seems to me this should be getting more press then it is...

DETROIT (AP) - An assistant U.S. attorney from Florida was arrested in an Internet sting operation after flying to Michigan to have sex with a 5-year-old girl, authorities said Monday.
John D.R. Atchison, 53, was arrested Sunday at Detroit Metropolitan Airport after several weeks of Internet conversations between the prosecutor and a detective posing as the mother of a 5-year-old girl, authorities say.

"There wasn't much reaction from him at all," Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel said. Atchison was cooperative with authorities, he said.

He was charged with using interstate communication to entice a minor to have sexual contact and traveling across state lines with the intent of engaging in illicit sexual contact. If convicted of both charges, he faces up to 40 years in prison.

According to court records, Atchison initiated an online chat Aug. 29 with an undercover officer posing as a mother interested in letting men have sex with her daughter.

At one point, Atchison said: "I'm always gentle and loving; not to worry; no damage ever; no rough stuff ever ever," according to an affidavit filed in court.

Atchison, of Gulf Breeze, Fla., is a prosecutor for the U.S. attorney's office for northern Florida, based in Tallahassee. He requested a court-appointed lawyer at his hearing Monday.

My question to you... how should this bastard be punished? Feel free not to mince words.

I have a few ideas but I'd like to hear yours too.

1.  There's a lot of oft repeated myth about this topic, which, along with secrency and charged emotions, makes it harder to know (A) what's going on and (B) what to do about it.  Despite "the belief that child molesters are largely violent and untreatable, sex offenders actually have the lowest rearrest rates of all convicts. According to the federal Bureau of Justice Statistics, only five percent of convicted sex offenders re-offend in three years, and studies show that fewer than one in four commit another sex crime in fifteen years. Men who rape women are more likely to return to their old ways than pedophiles who molest girls."  You can read all kinds of stuff at the website of the Bureau of Justice Statistics, part of the U.S. Department of Justice.

2.  The key word was "rot".  You can be in prison in a rotting way, or you can be in prison in a way that helps you, helps those around you, and helps society and the world at large.  There are many methods of quarantine, not all of which involve inducing human beings to "rot".
