  1. So who is Sara Tofte, other than someone who makes up and quotes false statistics?

    90% of all sexual offences are committed by family members or friends Sara………

  2. Sarah Tofte is a researcher for the Human Rights Watch. She got her information from widely accepted research. AND from the sex offender defender group SOSEN.

    90% of sexual offenses are committed by someone known to the victim. Less than 50% of those are by family members — which includes ANY relative no matter how distant AND step parents or step siblings. The rest “acquaintances” who could be merely someone the victim has encountered before not necessarily a “friend”

    Whether the victim knows the offender or not does not change the fact that in EXCESS of 25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years.

  3. He has been a child molester since at least 1986. You can ask his 28 yr old daughter who was only 4 at the time. I left his ass in 1986, immediately after she told me and never looked back. I did remember one instance of finding child pornografy hidden in the closet about a year before but he denied it was his. A 4 yr old doesn’t make shit up like that. This happened in Gretna, LA. I hope he never gets out. He didn’t even get a slap on tne wrist back then, apparently. But now that we know where he is, my daughter will file suit against him, and LA if they let him slide. After we left, I found out that he was still married to someone else (Vicki sage) when he married me, and that he had several alias names…Michael Sage, Micheal Montgomery, and others but I can’t remember them now. He’s pure evil… When my mother died when I was 24, his first comment, 5 seconds after the police told me he said… ” well now I don’t have to pay back the money I owe her” Hope he rots in hell !!!! That’s where he belongs,

  4. was michael gilpin previously adopted? or is there any way i could find out more info about him. I was born under the name sage, wich i found out later was a name he got when adopted. If this man actually turned out to be my father, at least now i could totally forget about this loser and no longer wonder where hes been all these years.

  5. I have a half sister named Star and a half brother named Shane, or at least that was what I was told. My moms name is Vivian and after just talking to her about the subject, all I can say is sorry. I didnt think id find anything on the computer, but i tried and this is what i got. He was a piece of shit then and i guess hes staying true to his fucked up ways. We first met when i was around 14-15, he had ditched my mom and i when i was about three. As a kid i wanted to know who my dad was, and then my mom managed to get hold of him. it only took a second before he used us again and left. fuck that cokehead piece of shit. im embaressed and ashamed to be his son. What a fucked up day this turned out to be.
    If youd like to talk, its welcome. If not, thats cool too.
