So how are we going to prevent the next offenders from offending?
The death penalty doesn't exactly act as a good deterrent.
Life without parole costs less than an execution, and accomplishes the same "idealistic" goal; that being, the prisoner can not commit the crime again, and will remain punished (and believe me, child molesters do not have a nice, comfy life in prisons...) for the rest of his life.
Sadly neither option would deter other offenders.
