Is That Really What You Meant to Say?

Sticking with the "I can't believe I heard that right" theme lets review this statement by a state prosecutor a few days ago. Referring to a high school music teacher who had been found to have had a number of consensual sexual relationships with female students (age 14 - 16) over the last 8 years. This is a direct quote. I wrote it down word for word immediately.

"We're hoping there's other victims that we dont know about at this time that will come forward."

Really? You're hoping for THAT? Because, and maybe it's just me, I'm kinda hoping that there are no other victims at all.
Anyone? Anyone at all?
