I’m laying odds that he’ll go straight to protective custody and won’t spend a day in general population with other pedo’s like him and I don’t think that’s right but the institution has to protect him which is way more than those children had. If this scumbag had kiddie porn you can bet at some point he would act on his urges and attack a child and that’s if he hasn’t done it already and not been caught
