French pedophile, given viagra in prison, rapes 5 year old boy upon release!

Francis Evrard, a 61-year-old (repeat-offender) pedophile raped a 5-year-old boy he kidnapped from Roubaix, a small northern town in France less than 2 months after he was released from prison. Evrard, who was sentenced to 27 years in prison, was released after serving only 18 of those years.

Police said the pair were discovered later in the day partly clothed in a garage used by Evrard after the use of a new nationwide search system. [fashioned after the U.S's "Amber Alert"]

Described as an
“incorrigible hunter of young boys” by a prosecutor at his trial in 1989. He also has three other convictions for sexual crimes in 1975, 1985 and 2004. The latter offence was committed in Caen prison, where he was discovered with child pornography on his personal computer in his cell. A psychiatrist who examined him for the court hearing in 2004 said that he had a “homosexual paedophile perversion causing a danger of a crime”. The psychiatrist added that Evrard was “barely readaptable”.

and yet, he was released!

The kicker: Evrard was found with Viagra in his pocket and, according to his lawyer, the drug was prescribed by none other than a prison doctor who claims he had no idea what Evrard was in for; in spite of the fact that three quarters of the inmates, in that particular prison, are child sex offenders.

I'd like to think that people can change, with treatment, but the recidivism rate for pedophiles is extremely high, and that's just those who happen to be caught in the act. Who knows how many are re-offending without being caught. Those sexual urges are extremely difficult to control and offenders usually wind up giving in to those compulsions. There's a very disturbing but powerful film "The Woodsman", starring Kevin Bacon, that deals with those issues. A convicted child molester, Walter (Kevin Bacon), is released after a 12 year sentence, and tries desperately to lead a normal life, but is ultimately unable to ward off the demons that push him to commit such despicable acts.

The French are outraged about the case, but the same thing happens in this country: repeat sex offenders are released early, re-offend and sometimes even murder their victims. Jessica Lunsford, case in point. At least Evrard's victim is still alive, although the young boy will probably need therapy for a very long time.

The problem is our laws are too lax and offenders are not required to undergo therapy, although who knows if that would even help.
Many of those committed get no treatment at all for sex offending, mainly by their own choice. In California, three-quarters of civilly committed sex offenders do not attend therapy. Many say their lawyers tell them to avoid it because admission of past misdeeds during therapy could make getting out impossible, or worse, lead to new criminal
charges.


We need to get tougher on violent sexual predators/rapists who are considered dangerous, particularly those who are repeat offenders. Treatment should not be optional! It should be mandatory. Intensive therapy plus drugs or chemical castration, or keep them off the streets, forever. Whatever it takes.

welcome back Incog..missed u!..this story is beyond the pale hun...dang this world of ours is spinning out of control!!!!

It is a sick world sometimes. You are on the mark about doing whatever it takes to protect our communities against sexual predators. French president Nicolas Sarkozy has reacted to this case by putting in motion moves to keep such offenders behind bars permanently until such time that doctors examine the offender and declare that it is safe for a release. The President, whose hardline stance on crime was a key part of his election campaign, also said he was in favour of allowing paedophiles undergo chemical castration to prevent them attacking again. I believe this is a god move but not all would agree with me.

well hallelujah she is back!! we are again happy all went well incog!! not to gloss over his release and subsequent actions, but i intrigued and obviously disturbed by what motivates a pediphile to pray on whom they do. it is beyond my comprehession as to why one must feel they need to violate a child. i am a compassionate understanding person, but such actions can only be described as utterly abhorrent!!

Its a horrible situation...
Jessica Lunsfords case is a typical example.I remember looking at Couey and wondering why he was roaming the streets ?
Have you watched"To catch a predator ".It is sad,pathetic and sickening

When are people going to realize that pedofiles were born that way? How long are they going to be inprisoned, abused, and discriminated against becasue of the way they were born. This is a sad day for social justice in France when this guy was thrown into prison simply because of the way he was born.

Debbie said...

Oh my goodness, why was he given Viagra??? Why was he let out? You and I agree completely on pedophiles. They should NEVER be let out to injure other children.

Welcome home.!

Incognito said...

ANGEL: Missed y'all too! our world is a sad little one. and something's gotta give.

AI: Yeah I read about Sarkozy's reaction. I would agree, if they can't control their sexual urges then it should be controlled *for* them.

PATJ: :-) Thanks PJ. It is a sickness, Pat, that they have little or no control over. Lots of various definitions of what constitutes pedophilia and what causes it. Then you have pederasty which has been around for centuries. sigh. There are those who actually rape babies... that to me is the worst.

FRASYPOO: Many sexual offenders, not just pedophiles have been released and gone out and raped and killed. Remember the young college girl in Wisconsin or Minnesota Dru something. Same thing. He had just been released. I think I saw that show once.

DANNY: Hey Danny. But even if they were born that way does it justify their actions? And what would you propose we do with people who are a danger to others, particularly our children? I'm not talking about the Peeping Tom's and others who don't actually harm their victims. But what about those who violently rape and abuse? You have a son, does this not worry you that we have pedophiles running around preying on children?

I'd be very interested, Danny, in hearing what solutions you would deem appropriate.

We are all born a certain way, but we also have free will and we can choose to give in to those 'dark' aspects of our personality or not, just depends how strong of will we are.

All I can say is.......OY! Just when you thought you heard it all.

The Vegas Art Guy said...

I think that child predators (the real ones) need to serve their entire sentence. If you get 27 years you do 27 years. I don't know if they can be rehabbed. If they commit the same crime again they should never get out.

Incog

I was in a hurry today and responded to your question, but I'm not sure it actually posted. Sometimes it ask for a second word verification and I don't catch it. My origianl comment was meant to be one of sarcasm. I guess it sounded a little too real. I should do a little more thinking before posting. Sorry.

Danny

Incognito said...

DEBBIE: He was given Viagra because he lied to the prison doc and said he wanted to try to get a girlfriend and was having problems. The doc failed to check what he was in for. He shouldn't have been let out considering everyone knew he would probably violate again. and thanks.. :-) good to be home.

DD2: My sentiments exactly!

VEGAS AG: I agree. I don't think many can.. and absolutely, repeat offenders should never be released.

DANNY: Phew. was wondering for a minute Danny. :-) But I should have known better. was just wondering what slant you might have on it.

Strawberry said...

Chemical castration is probably too good for them but it is one way of controlling those "urges"! I also think they should not be given the choice to attend rehab. It should be a requirement of their prison sentence.

The All Seeing Eye said...

Good lord....

Incognito said...

STRAWB: It's crazy that they're not forced to undergo intensive therapy, but they're not. Couey got the death sentence! And well deserved, sorry to say. Raping and then burying the little girl alive.

TASE: amen..
