    30 years would most likely be a death sentence for him, so yup thats good…

    If he is found guilty, he should receive the harshest sentence allowed by law. It’s not very often someone is convicted producing this garbage!

      Knowing Maine’s justice system he will be out in a year…

  • why do we put a gay man in a building, give him 3 squares, a bed,t.v., other gay men?….Bizzaro vacation and resort.

      There is a huge difference between being gay and being  pedophile.A adult man having sex and taking pictures of MINOR boys is extremely horrid.Those boys will be scarred for life.Two different women teachers in Maine were recently put in prison for having sex with the same age boys.Boys at 15 are still children.

    • Good afternoon Michael:  I feel I must point this out.  A person who is a pedophile gets pleasure from the power of being dominant over children in a sexual manner.  They are child rapists.  In most cases it doesn’t matter to the pedophile whether the victim is male or female, what does matter is the power that person can exert over another human being.

      I have been gay all my life, but have never had any inclination to be have a sexually dominant relationship with children.  Like many of my straight friends, I dated until I found the person with whom I wanted to spend the rest of my life.  Like many of my straight friends, my partner and I have a business together and enjoy cooking and boating and raising dogs and putting in bathrooms and renovating old and new houses on our own.  

      You must understand that being a person who is attracted to children, who do not possess informed consent, is illegal and a sickness.  One does not have to be gay to be a pedophile in the same way one should not be labeled a pedophile simply for being gay.  

      Being gay is not illegal, nor is it a sickness, it is a way of life, just like being straight is a way of life.  

      thanks for reading,  I hope this helps.

        This is not a form topic for gay pride or to boost your self esteem….know body wants to hear it. So back to the topic–there is not punishment harsh enough for someone who hurts a child—so Mr Gonyer next time you think you need to harm a child.. come see me….I got something for ya !!!!

        • excuse me, but I was simply responding to clear up a common misconception that was brought up in this forum.  I heartily agree with you that there is no punishment harsh enough for someone who hurts a child.

    what a creep!
    he’s even got the “pedostache”

  • HowdyNeighbor

    If he ever gets out, he’ll probably be sent to Bangor, the sex offender capital of Maine, where they have rooming houses that cater to sex offenders.
