You do I know you are a pervert?

When you blame your crimes on the four year old victim. Kenneth Cook, a retired pastor, did this during his trial. Now he is a convicted pedophile and on his way to prison. Did I mention he was a pastor?

A retired pastor from Canada was sentenced to three years in prison today after telling a McHenry County judge he was sexually harassed by the 4-year-old Lake in the Hills girl he pleaded guilty to molesting.

Kenneth R. Cooke, 73, appeared to have reasonable chance at a probation sentence given his age, health problems and lack of criminal history heading into his sentencing hearing this afternoon.

What damage has Cook caused?

"She has stated on many occasions she is a bad person and wishes she had never been born," the girl's mother said. "You can't imagine how hard it is to hear that from your own child.

His legacy is a shattered life. He must be proud.
