If someone asks him, ‘What are these wounds on your body?’ he will answer, ‘The wounds I was given at the house of my friends.’ Zech 13 v 6

There is often a progression with the worst of the worst offenders. Our case was a progression. Patrick went from victimizing his minor siblings, to adult consensual incest with a sister. He went from peering in on mothers and daughters in their bathrooms and watching hours of pornography to sexual contact with dogs, to victimizing someone outside his family.

Not only did he victimize someone outside of his family, Patrick had the audacity to act on his deviant behavior in a home where the parents and seven other children were sleeping. Very risky. Very arrogant.

Patrick talks in his evaluation about "the thrill of the hunt." Scary.

hmmm...the 'thrill of the hunt' kinda sounds like a predator, no? Certainly an ordinary person would not describe it like that...he really scares me that he will offend again. I wish your state had tougher laws like we have in Florida then at least you could maybe track him and catch him when he goes on the 'hunt' again.

As for "adult consensual incest"...if it began when she was a child, and therefore incapable of consent, and it continued into adulthood, she was still being victimized. Given the family's minimizing of sexual abuse, she was probably taught that she had no choice.
