At least it wasn't Gargis' own child that he abused. At least Gargis has the defense that the toddler irritated him with her constant running about the household. At least it wasn't sexual. At least...
There's no at least for Nathan Paul Bougher. Sure, he's only 21. Yet no one made him father a child. No one made him marry. No one made him... No one made him do whatever horrible things he did to a one-month old child who couldn't leave his crib,
Thankfully the child didn't die from his injuries. How much time will Bougher serve if convicted? Anthony Ryan Allen got 15 years for unprecedented abuse of his girlfriend's son; however, there was only physical injury, no sexual abuse. Bougher should be looking at a minimum of 20 years.
Let's hope he gets life.
