    No, he would not go free.

    1980 wasn't that long ago. He would have received life in prison, where, unless protected by guards 24-7, he would have been killed shortly after incarceration by other inmates. They never miss a chance to kill a child rapist or murderer.

    Things really haven't changed much in 30 years in a case like this.
