[Excerpts] ...former Mesa police officer [Justin Bowman], who was arrested in 2008, committed the crimes against a 9-year-old girl and a 10-year-old boy between March 1, 2008 and Oct. 29, 2008. Bowman's wife had called authorities to inform them that he was suicidal, and early on in the investigation, police discovered that he had child pornography on his computer hard drive and that he allegedly had been molesting the two children, according to court records... "It sounds excessive, but we have two issues at play here," [Kostas Kalaitzidis, spokesman for the Pinal County Attorney's Office] said. "First, we want this guy to go to prison, and second, you don't want him to get out. He's not a good guy, he's just not a good guy. He molested two pre-pubescent children and had child pornography on his computer. If he gets paroled on one life sentence, he's got to beat 14 other life sentences." The investigation was conducted by the Arizona Department of Public Safety, the Pinal County Sheriff's Office, Child Help and the Pinal County Family Advocacy Center, which attempts to minimize the psychological trauma to victims. At the time of Bowman's conviction earlier this month, Pinal County Attorney James Walsh said in a statement, "These were horrible crimes against very young children. This case really stands out as a showcase of the multi-disciplinary approach we have been working on for years. I am proud of the work done by the Family Advocacy Center." [Full article here]


I got this comment from Anonymous this morning:
"Justice has been served. This pond scum, who thought he was too smart, too savvy and also figured "Geez, who wouldn't believe me...a cop?" was found guilty by a jury last month and sentenced on 6/28/10 to 14 LIFE terms, amounting to over 600 years! If he was depressed before the wife called the cops, how depressed do you think he is NOW?..."
