    Accused pedophiles like Juan Contreras, Sylvain Kustyan, Ariel Castro, Jerry Sandusky, etc. serve to prove the urgency to stop these menaces to our children BEFORE they have decades to prey on them. In Kustyan's case, unfortunately, he has fled the US to avoid imminent arrest.. Kustyan, formerly of Tuscaloosa, AL and France, has been formally charged with two counts each of 1st Degree Sodomy and Sexual Abuse of a ten-year-old little boy. Kustyan is currently a fugitive from the law and is thought to be in Europe.
