The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.

William Constable

William Constable has spent an incredible amount of time traveling all over the world, including Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam since 1983. In fact, every year he treats himself to a trip overseas. The only problem is, he's not going to sight see- but to sexually abuse young girls.

Prosecutors said the camera and dozens of cassettes and compact discs later seized from Constable's Nantucket home showed him sexually assaulting girls as young as 5, sometimes two at a time.

During a hearing Tuesday in U.S. District Court, Constable pleaded guilty to seven counts of sexual exploitation of children and one count of possession of child pornography. According to a plea agreement filed with the court, the recommended sentence will be 25 years in prison and a $50,000 fine, with restitution to be determined when Constable is sentenced on June 10. He also faces lifetime supervision after his release.

Constable told investigators he videotaped himself having sex with the girls so that he could later "re-create the moment," Assistant U.S. Attorney Dana Gershengorn said.

Sadly, at his age- he doesn't have enough years of life left to even come close to how long he should be locked up.
