Peter J. Kearney-Stanley needs 5 grand

Seriously, he might only need a small percentage of that. I know, you're wondering why he needs it to begin with. I won't keep you guessing any longer.

It seems that Peter J. Kearney-Stanley needs the funds in order to make bail- $5,000 bail- after sexually abusing the 8 year old daughter of his ex girlfriend.

Peter J. Kearney-Stanley, 24, of 1 Carmen Park Drive is being held on $5,000 cash bail in the Plymouth House of Correction after a Tuesday arraignment. He will return to Wareham District Court next month to answer to the charge of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14.

The charge originated in Wareham, where Stanley was living with his ex-girlfriend. According to court records, the Department of Social Services was investigating the mother for neglecting the 8-year-old and her 6-year-old brother.

During a home visit in February, the 8-year-old said Stanley “touched me in the wrong spot.” The girl said she was sleeping and woke to him touching her.

The Plymouth County District Attorney’s office was notified of the allegations, Wareham police were brought in and the investigation was launched. A DSS spokesperson said the children remain with their mother in Wareham because Stanley is out of the home and no longer a threat.

I know, you're thinking FIVE grand? And yes, sadly that is the correct amount, but don't get to upset yet- because it gets worse. Seems that he has a previous conviction for... hold your breath... rape of child conviction. He's a level 2 offender. Staring at his second offense. And his bond is $5,000. Wonder how soon he'll be walking out the streets this time.

Stupid judges.
