This morning in San Antonio, U.S. District Judge Xavier Rodriguez accepted Ray Gagnon’s guilty plea. Gagnon will be sentenced in July and faces up to 20 years in prison.
Gagnon still faces charges of child pornography in Alabama where he lived with young Brooke and her mother.
Will these federal charges be an impetus for Gagnon to try a cut a deal by cooperating with authorities in testifying against Michael Jacques, Brooke’s uncle, who stands accused of 12-year-old Brooke’s kidnap, rape and murder?
We can only hope!
