Child Molester Beaten by Past Victim
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - A convicted child molester was beaten unconscious by one of his past victims while they shared a jail holding cell, authorities said.
The former victim, a 22-year-old man being held on a probation violation, recognized Kevin Kinder as the man who abused him and three other boys when he was 11.
He jumped on Kinder, punched him repeatedly and knocked him unconscious Thursday, said the man's lawyer, Ricky Escobar.
``It's such a fluke that these two ended up in the same place at the same time,'' said the former victim's mother, Judy Coronett. ``But think about how (my son) feels. He was finally able to confront Kinder and fight back after 11 years. I think it's damn therapeutic.''
Neither man's jail paperwork indicated their history, so they were inadvertently placed in the same cell with about 65 other inmates.
Corrections officials will decide Friday whether to file new charges against the men. Both suffered minor injuries.
Kinder, 31, is serving 60 years in state prison on a probation violation after serving six years for molesting the four boys. He was in Tampa for a hearing.

And people say there's no karmic retribution. Kiddie rapists are the scum of the prison world as it is (Goeghan (sp?)), but this one's especially nice to hear. Who better to get the payback than one of the victims?
