Renderos v. Ryan (9th Cir. - Nov. 8, 2006)

I'm hesitant to help out child molesters. That said, when you read a hundred of cases like this, you can come up with a very simple piece of advice:

When someone you molested calls you up on the telephone to discuss the years-ago molestation, don't admit it. Don't talk about it. And definitely don't say, as Renderos does here, "You were the one asking for it."

Why not? Because, you dummy, the cops are obviously listening. And the tape recording ain't gonna play well in front of the jury at your trial.

How "not good"? How about 66 years in prison not good?

Yeah, that bad.
