Opening Arguments

Pick out the disturbed one here

Bet this moron can't even spell autism:

A Paoli man convicted of battery and criminal confinement after trying to exorcise demons from a 14-year-old boy with autism was sentenced to house arrest on Thursday.

Monroe Circuit Judge Teresa Harper sentenced Edward Uyesugi to three years in jail, with all but six months suspended. He will serve those six months under house arrest at parents' home in Orange County.


Uyesugi must also perform 400 hours of community service.

House arrest for using religion as an excuse to beat the crap out of a kid? At least he should be required to perform his community service at a mental health clinic. There is usually a package of recommended treatments for autism, depending on the individual case. Nowhere will you find exorcism as a potential cure.
