Jodie Hudson-Greenly and husband Kenneth Greenly were sentenced to two to five and two to four years in prison, respectively, for horrible abuse an 11-year-old girl (“Couple sentenced for torturing girl,” Sept. 25).

When are child and animal abusers going to get some real time (10 years or more) in Pennsylvania? Children and animals are helpless.

It seems the helpless are fair game in Pennsylvania. The laws need to be changed.
