As you sew, so shall you reap.
“January 14th, the day I was arrested, was a miracle. It had to happen,” McFadden said in court.
“My actions have caused great grief not only for my family and my friends but have had a ripple effect into the community,” he said.
McFadden also explained how his recently discovered bipolar disorder and sex addiction might have contributed to his actions.
“Since then, I’ve sought help and received treatment for my sex addiction and for my bipolar disorder. I don’t offer either one of those as an excuse for my actions,” McFadden said.
McFadden formerly served as director of the Faith-Based and Community Initiatives office under Gov. Ted Strickland. He was transferred to the state prisons department in 2007 and laid off in March 2008 due to budget cuts.
He faced up to 10 years in prison.
McFadden must turn himself in for incarceration by Thursday, Aug. 20
I don't mean to be unkind, but Bipolar disorder doesn't begin to address the level of mania that McFadden displays.
The level of stalking and other behaviors Eric McFadden exhibits when he picks you out as a victim and then saying it's a miracle they discovered his bipolar disorder is like saying Helter Skelter was a miracle because Charlie Manson discovered he has mood swings and is getting help for them.
Sorry - but I'm not buying it.
Too many years and too many personal experiences with McFadden. In this story here, the "miracles can happen" appears to be a meme written in several letters lobbying the judge leniency, implying McFadden has "turned his life around".

In court today, McFadden began sweating profusely and had already removed his wedding ring and emptied his pockets for what he thought was an immediate trip to prison. Horton instead gave him two weeks to report.
His wife and several supporters had written letters to the judge saying that the arrest has turned McFadden's life around. Since then, he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and has begun sex-addiction counseling, defense attorney Keith Golden said
The sentence requires McFadden to register as a sex offender for the next 25 years. He might have to sell his house, which is within 1,000 feet of a school, Golden said
It's like saying the discovery of Norman Bates' mother caused Norman to turn his life around - why he wouldn't harm a fly.
Give me a break.
Prison is a place where sociopathic maniacs can victimize, terrorize, intimidate and threaten and it's very difficult for the victims to obtain relief and justice. I hope and pray they watch him carefully and protect other prisoners from him.
