Before Jeffrey Brisson, 30, was sentenced Friday to 45 years in prison and 25 years of special parole for the sexual assault of children who had been placed in his care, he defended pedophilia as “human nature” and railed against a society he said just does not understand.
He read calmly from what appeared to be a prepared statement and said our culture refuses to acknowledge that everyone has deep-seeded feelings of pedophilia and lust for children. Most people fantasize about having sex with children, he said, further defending his actions by mentioning child beauty pageants.
He continued to argue about the “ignorance of the system that legislates human nature.”
The judge said that should Brisson ever be free, he would have to be monitored almost constantly. He will also be on the sex-offender registry.
