A pedophile in Florida got exactly what he deserved this week when a Seminole County judge put him in prison for nearly 900 years.
Shawn Ryan Thomas was found guilty of 59 charges for possessing child-porn and a failed kidnap-murder. According to reports, Thomas was arrested after he planned to kill the parents of a 9-year-old girl. After killing her parents he was going to kidnap the child, torture, rape and kill her — and make tons of kiddie porn while he was at it.
According to the Orlando Sentinel:
A confidential informant tipped off FDLE investigators to Thomas, after he talked about his plan to lure a 9-year-old girl and her parents to his house under the thought he was a filmmaker. He would then kill her parents, video-record himself raping the girl and then kill her, documents state.
When police searched his home, they found 60 images of child porn that was on a computer, resting on his bed. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) investigators said some of the movies in his possession were more than an hour long.
It only took jurors three hours to find him guilty and Circuit Court Judge Marlene Alva sentenced Thomas to 15 years for each count — 885 year in total.
Thank God someone came forward and told police about this sick sonofabitch. He not only planned to kill this little girl, but he had plans to do the same to more children. We likely would have had our next infamous serial killer. This is one of those times when we should be incredibly grateful to law enforcement. Without the tipster and their hard work, this would have ended very differently.
