`Gay' Gets 50 Years for Kidnapping, Homosex AssaultWISCONSIN RAPIDS -- A Wisconsin paper mill worker has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for kidnapping and sexually assaulting two young men he kept chained at his home. The judge told Ed Lanphear, 47, on Wednesday the sentence virtually ensures he can never commit another crime in his lifetime. Lanphear apologized to the victims and said he never intended to kill anyone. Lanphear abducted the men in Wisconsin Rapids in separate incidents last July. Prosecutors say Lanphear preyed on young men who had been drinking and at least once posed as a police officer.

Video: Lanphear Sentenced To 50 Years
A 47-year-old Saratoga gay who abducted, imprisoned and sexually assaulted two men last summer was sentenced this afternoon to 50 years in prison. Edward J. Lanphear will be 97 years old when he’s released from prison and placed on 20 years of extended supervision for two counts of kidnapping and two counts of first-degree sexual assault. Wood County Circuit Court Judge Greg Potter said Lanphear is every person’s worst nightmare — a man Potter said he was determined wouldn’t have the opportunity to offend again.
Child Molestation and Homosexuality
Three kinds of scientific evidence point to the proportion of homosexual molestation: 1) survey reports of molestation in the general population, 2) surveys of those caught and convicted of molestation, and 3) what homosexuals themselves have reported. These three lines of evidence suggest that the 1%-to-3% of adults who practice homosexuality (3) account for between a fifth and a third of all child molestation.
