Pedophile Blames Toddler for Her Own Rape

Sex offenders are a pretty awful bunch, so it's often hard to say one is worse than the other. But one man in Montana has managed to rise to the top of the poop pile with his horrifically disgusting acts and the justification for them.

Seventy-two-year-old Albert Gaub owned a daycare where he repeatedly assaulted a 2-year-old girl in his care. That is bad enough, right? But it gets worse. After pleading guilty in 2010 to assaulting the girl over a period of 18 months, he was sentenced to 30 years in prison with 15 suspended. But he was classified as a Level 2 sex offender, which means he is considered to be at a moderate risk to repeat his crime.

Personally, anyone who would have a sexual interest in a toddler is a morally repugnant, Level 100 piece of sewage waste in my book, but I am not a judge. The worst part has yet to come, though.

During an interview with police, Gaub characterized his victim as "4 going on 40." Give it a moment. Let that sink in. He actually said that an innocent 4-year-old who had been molested since before she could even talk was somehow a Lolita-esque baby? Where is my eye poking stick when I need it? Jesus, people.

According to the Attorney General's Office: "Gaub claimed that [the girl] knew what she was doing and what was going on, suggesting that if the little girl had not been so promiscuous he would not have abused her." Gaub wrote in a statement that he touched her in a wrong way, but did not "harm" her. And all this was said while he was trying to become a Level 1 offender. Pardon me while I puke.

As far as I am concerned, showing no remorse for your crimes and blaming the victim (one who happens to be a TODDLER) tells me all I need to know about what kind of pervert freak this is. He may be old. He may not be around kids after his release. But this isn't a man who deserves to have any quality of life. Level 2 seems awfully generous.

The fact is, the rate of recidivism on some pedophiles is astronomically high, and while it does tend to vary depending on the crime, common sense says that an offender who thinks they have done nothing wrong isn't sane or well in the head.

My heart goes out to this poor little girl and I hope she never catches wind of the horrible things this man said about her. There is no such thing as a 4-year-old who is asking to be abused. The very thought makes me want to hurt someone.
