Okay, assuming this story is true, this man has committed 36,000 cases of child sexual abuse. To committ one a day, this would take rougly 100 years. The man is only 63, so to committ them all by his age, assuming puberty at around 13, and crimes committed from ther on out, he would have to committ 2 child sexual abuses a day every day for his entire teenage and adult life up to this point, with only 5 days off a year. This seems unrealistic to me. 36,000 counts might somehow make sense, after other Micheal Jackson was charged with 10 different countsin his past trial and this was just concerning one boy, but still, to have supported oneself long enough to be in society and alive at 63 doesn't really seem to facillitate committing 36,000 cases of abuse. Forget that, NO ONE TURNED HIM IN out of 36,000? He was never caught, no one could idea him or told their parents? he's just that clever? I suspect this may not be true
