Ironically, Reed once shared a photo on his Facebook profile, suggesting death as the only solution to end pedophilia. The image Reed shared showed two bullets in a magazine with the words "Cure for Pedophilia" written across them.

According to state law, molestation of a child is a Class 2 felony and is classified as a "Dangerous Crime Against Children," punishable by imprisonment of between 10 and 24 years for first time offenders.
