Becker has stood up to sex offenders

The Daily Star

---- — We are writing this letter in support of Judge Carl Becker.

We initially supported Judge Becker when he ran for his first term due to his promise to deal effectively and appropriately with pedophiles and abusers. We feel that he has lived up to this promise as the current Delaware County judge.

As a teacher and a social worker, we have seen firsthand the long-lasting effects abuse, especially child abuse, have on a person’s entire life. Judge Becker has consistently confronted the denial of these abusers and has forced them to bear the full burden of their crimes. We would like to urge the people of Delaware County to support Judge Becker in this upcoming election.
