Pedophile Tells Victim “I Love You” In Open Court, Shows No Remorse, Gets Slap On Wrist From Judge
Justice Martin Murphy issues a baffling sentence that calls his competency as a member of the judiciary into question.

Admitted child rapist Andrew Goodman reportedly declared his love for one of his child victims, a now-17-year-old boy he molested and raped beginning when the boy was 13-years-old.
Just feet from his victim in open court, Goodman called the boy his “best friend in the whole world.”
"Every second of every day, all that I think about is [the boy’s name],” Goodman said. Then, turning to look directly at the boy, Goodman said, “I love you,” reportedly drawing gasps in the courtroom, the New York Post reported.
Despite this complete lack of remorse and Goodman’s clear belief that he did nothing wrong, Justice Martin Murphy held to Goodman’s sweetheart plea deal and sentenced him to only two years in prison – which with time already served could see Goodman released in September.
The boy pleaded with the Murphy to revoke the deal and send Goodman to prison for a long time, calling Goodman "the devil disguised as a human."
Goodman took a two-year deal from Murphy last month after pleading guilty to 48 felony counts of child sexual abuse. “Even more than Jerry Sandusky,” the victim said, referring to the Penn State assistant football coach who could spend the rest of his life in prison after being convicted of 45 counts of felony child sexual abuse there.
"I have no doubt he will try to do the same thing to other other children once he gets out," the victim reportedly said of Goodman.
Goodman’s victim dropped out of school after suffering through "a torturous four years" of sexual abuse. Goodman allegedly sexually abused the boy’s brother, as well.
"The best thing for you and society is if you're locked in a cage away from society - especially children," the victim reportedly said.
"Please, use your position to protect our children," the victim’s mother asked the judge.
But Murphy did not use his power to do that. Instead, he stuck with the two-year deal he offered Goodman – meaning Goodman could be out of prison in time for Sukkot.
"Mr. Goodman, you caused a lot of pain to all the complainants. Your statement that you made today was ill-advised, to say the least,” Murphy said as he sentenced Goodman.
Prosecutors wanted Goodman sentenced to 7 years for each of the 48 felony counts - 336 years in all.
Goodman began grooming the victim when he was ten, giving him Rollerblades, a Playstation and taking him out to eat in restaurants.
"He began telling me he loved me. He slowly built up my trust and then began to alienate me from my family. Eventually, I began to trust him more than my own parents,” the victim said.
"Andrew Goodman, you are the devil disguised as a human," the victim said. "I trusted you with my life and you betrayed that trust. You are the worst thing that ever happened to me. A person that really loves me wouldn't take advantage of an innocent young child."
Justice Martin Murphy did not explain his exceeding light sentence or his refusal to listen to the pleas of the victim and his mother.
