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

John Sommerer Goes to Jail

Once, John Sommerer used to represent an entire town, but now the former mayor of Coral Springs represents little more than an inmate number, at least for the next few years.

The 60-year-old is accused of molesting a girl under the age of 12.

He pleaded no contest to four counts of lewd and lascivious molestation, four counts of lewd and lascivious conduct, and one count of exhibition.

To be frank, Sommerer isn't actually just 'the accused' anymore, he'd been sentenced to 4.5 years in prison and 30 years of sexual offender probation after prison.
