Rape victim's mom: "a monster was released"

A convicted repeat child rapist has been set free after expert psychologists decided he's not mentally abnormal enough to be committed against his will.  24 years ago, Cory Roberts, then only 13, violently raped and beat a 3-year-old girl he was babysitting.  Court documents show that after he sexually assaulted the child, he punched her with a closed fist so badly she was left brain damaged, paralyzed, partially blind, and severely emotionally scarred.

Roberts was also convicted of assaulting two boys he was rooming with while locked up in juvenile hall.  Police say Roberts admitted to sexually assaulting several other females, both family and non-family.  Prosecutors say he refused treatment for his sexual depravity while he was behind bars.
