native Larry Don McQuay worked as a school bus driver
. He is a convicted pedophile
who has confessed to molesting more than 200 children. In 1996
he shocked America by declaring from behind bars that if he were parole
d he would be "doomed to eventually rape then murder my poor little victims to keep them from telling on me" unless he were chemically castrated. The government refused to do it but the procedure was paid for by Justice For All
, a victims' rights group. Then-governor George W. Bush
commented "He's as flagrant with his words as his behavior." and sought to keep him behind bars as long as possible.
"I have been busting my butt to do everything possible to keep me from reoffending, but everyone seems to be dead set against that. I got away with molesting over 240 children before getting caught for molesting just one little boy. With all that I have cold-heartedly learned while in prison, there is no way that I will ever be caught again."
"Sometimes I wish I was born a hundred years ago when you could marry a 12-year-old girl and nobody would think twice about it. Or back in the Greek culture when they had sex with boys," he said. "But in today's society that's not acceptable and I'm not a time traveler, so I can't go back into another society or another culture."
McQuay served six years and is still on parole today, under what has been termed "unprecedented" supervision.
