A Naperville man has been sentenced to 34 years in prison for sexually abusing and taking lewd photographs of a young male relative, the DuPage County State's Attorney stated.

Prosecutors said Grant Gambiani, 30, showed his victim images of child pornography and took pornographic images of him between March 1, 2008 and June 6, 2008. During the same time period Gambiani sexually assaulted the victim at various locations including during a family outing in Ohio.

 “Time and time again, Mr. Gambiani sexually assaulted his ten year-old victim to satisfy his deviant desires,” DuPage County State's Attorney Robert Berlin stated. “He stole this young boy’s innocence, making him a victim of sexual assault and child pornography at the tender age of ten. He violated the trust placed in him by his victim’s family. He violated the trust placed in him by the victim and he violated his victim in the worst possible way."

Gambiani was found guilty in May 2010 of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, aggravated criminal sexual abuse, aggravated child pornography and 15 counts of child pornography. Gambiani was first sentenced to 43 years in prison, but the case was remanded back to trial on appeal.

In October 2013 Gambiani was again found guilty. Gambiani will be required to serve at least 85 percent of his 34 year sentence before being eligible for parole.

So now that we know justice has been served in this case, how about throwing Mitchell James Brady in the slammer as well? The evidence is there, but he got a plea deal, so now there are thousands of young children at risk. Once a child predator, always a child predator. It is a psychological illness and one that might have been borne out of abuse as a child. They will strike again, so all publicized sexual abusers that have gotten off with days, weeks, or months (and even years) of jail time, will unfortunately headline the papers again in the future. All of the remaining sexual deviants who have yet to be caught will see that if and when they get caught, time to be served is not that bad. The punishment doesn’t fit the crime, so why not take a chance? Hasn’t the court system learned anything from all of the unfortunate victims out there, i.e… Jaycee Dugard?. These individuals do not stop. Watch your kids.
