A Barrow County jury has convicted a Bethlehem man of aggravated sodomy, aggravated child molestation and cruelty to children in the first degree.
Rodolfo Rene Estrada, 55, was sentenced April 15 to life in prison on charges of aggravated sodomy and aggravated child molestation. The charges stemmed from a June 2009 incident involving a six-year-old female. The sentence requires a mandatory term of twenty-five years to be served in confinement. Additionally, Estrada was sentenced to twenty years for cruelty to children. That sentence will be served concurrently to the sentence for aggravated sodomy and aggravated child molestation.
The trial was prosecuted by senior assistant district attorney Mary Beth Forwood, of the District Attorney’s Office Special Victims Unit. Superior Court judge Joseph Booth presided over the two-day trial.
It bothers me that for the rest of this man's life the tax payers will be feeding, clothing, housing, and providing all his medical care.
Don't worry about it

Yeah well this 6 yr old is MY daughter and I'd rather pay my taxes to feed, clothe, house and provide medical care for him just so my innocent little angel can sleep better at night and get on with her life and work through this to put it behind her and be a normal child. By the time of his release date she will be 33 yrs old and wont have to worry about his sorry behind coming after her cause he will be 81 yrs old!!!
