Former Hubbard Mayor changed his plea to guilty during his trial and could serve only 10 years in the rape of a four-year-old.

This man won’t make it behind bars unless he’s in protective custody and from what we hear on a regular basis, that’s not even safe for child molesters. Can you imagine this grown man, supposed educated pillar of the community took the innocence of a four-year-old?
There are no words except for he should never see the light of day again.
Former Hubbard Mayor Richard Keenan, who now admits to raping a young child, is facing life behind bars.
He was visibly shaken Friday as he changed his plea to guilty on 20 counts of sex crimes, including eight counts of rape. Keenan agreed to a life sentence with the eligibility of parole after ten years.
According to court documents, the abuse began as early as September 2013 when the victim — who Keenan knew — was just 4 years old.
“It gives the victim some closure. Obviously, keeps this young child from having to testify and I think it’s a good result given all the facts and circumstances,” said Assistant Prosecutor Gabe Wildman.
He said prosecutors have a responsibility to do what’s best for the victim and that they accomplished that Friday.
“Not bringing her in here to have to testify in the small courtroom with this man in there as well.”
Keenan’s family was emotional. They lashed out at reporters after the hearing and tried to block him from the camera’s view.
Prosecutors said this just goes to show how difficult these cases are for everyone.
What did this guy mean it would give the victim closure? This kid will have to go through like with this! What do you think of this monster? Why isn’t the media all over this one?
