Seriously though: 1, he looks like chester the molester; 2, I'd kick his butt if he fondled my child. Even if I did like it when it happened to me.

While you may have liked it, the girls obviouly didn't. And your baby sitter was guilty of a sex crime, not to mention sick. Normal people do not get their jollies from touching children's private parts.
