Thomas was convicted of raping,shaking, and permanently harming an 18 month old baby while (I know, I know) her mother was at work.
The judge sentenced him 10 years to life, and he is SO sure he will get parole at the end of this month that he has already petitioned the court to not include his name on any offender registries. I guess he didn't feel the court was moving quickly enough, because he's been back to court and asked for this to be expedited.
His victim's mother has been extremely vocal this past few weeks with email campaigns,petitions, and a crude web page for info to give to the parole board.
Below is a record to his entire legal history regarding this case:
