kaufman was offered a similar plea out before his FIRST trial. he refused. said he wasn't going to plea out on something he didn't do. took his chances in court and got all those life sentences.
i am sure kaufman realized that might happen again, and accepted the plea. i don't blame him. the crime he was ACCUSED of and now convicted will follow him for the rest of his life.
i agree that sex crimes against children and the elderly are horrible things, and being outraged by this type of crime is perfectly understandable.
i have known this man for over 25 years. if you don't know the person, then just judge the crime and not the man.
