Burchfield said he could not reveal any other information because the case involved a juvenile.

    This tragic case as well as the cases of other accused pedophiles/ child molesters like Sylvain Kustyan, Ariel Castro, Jerry Sandusky show that they must be stopped ASAP. Especially when we remember that the average pedophile has 300 different victims in their lifetime and that the recidivism rate among pedophiles is virtually 100%! The others are now behind bars. Unfortunately, Kustyan, who is formerly from Tuscaloosa, AL and Hermin/Mazingarbe, France, and has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little boy, fled the US to avoid imminent arrest. If you have been a victim of Kustyan’s please contact the authorities in Tuscaloosa to tell your story. You may help save future victims!
