Child molester sentenced for second sexual abuse act
James L. Little Jr., 41, formerly of Batavia, had three and-a-half more years added onto his 15-year prison term today after Judge Robert Noonan sentenced him in Genesee County Court.
Little entered a guilty plea to molesting a second child under the age of 11 in November. He will now serve 18 1/2 years in state prison.
Appearing with his attorney, William Harper, in Genesee County Court for sentencing this morning, Little told the court he was "sorry for the family."
Little appeared unkept and had a scruffy beard. He was escorted by state correction officers.
Noonan told Little he needs to go away for a long time.
Little is currently serving a 15-year prison term for sexually abusing a toddler last March.
After he was sentenced on that charge, Batavia Police were made aware of a second sexual-abuse victim who is under the age of 11.
Just last week, a 56-year old Pembroke woman, Beverly Hensel was sentenced to 10 years probation and intermittent jail time for possession of sexual performance of a child. Hensel reportedly supplied Little with six DVD's full of child pornography.
Little and Hensel met in a Corfu bar in 2008.
District Attorney Larry Friedman said, "The main concern here is recidivism -- the concern that when he gets out other children will be at risk. That's why the judge felt the need to incarcerate as long as possible."
Does anyone know if he was ever a gay scout leader?
Recidivism? Hensel is out...she lit the fire. Yes, as adults we have to take responsibility for our OWN actions, but she knew she was stirring the pot. If I understand correctly, Mr. Little has not been in trouble like this before, but Noonan wants to send him away for a long time. Hensel has no history either, but she encouraged these actions. What makes one better than another? I don't see it. (Doug - I do not believe Mr. Little was involved in scouting activities; but I believe that the Hensel family has a history of involvement in 'good, clean community/family activities').
Lisa, what I said was in jest :-)
Sorry, Doug. Now-a-days, you never know. With all that has gone on, it's so sad.Connections like that make situations more infuriating.
3 1/12 years added on?!?!?!? For molesting a child under 11!!
Why wasn't another 15 years tacked on?
What many people aren’t aware of is how organized these sub-humans are and especially since the growth of the internet and social networking.
Nothing less than life in prison is an appropriate sentence; and to me personally the later is lenient.
Here is a link to a disgusting website; one of many that promotes this deviance as reasonable.
Richard, you a bit more "out there" than normal. Anything you want to tell us?
The article I commented on was about a child molester; do you find the subject funny? Do you have any empathy for his victims?
Obviously the post went over your head. Perhaps it was a failed attempt to appear clever in keeping with your first post about gay scout leaders.
In the spirit of your post to which I am replying; and since you first brought up the subject of gay: is there anything "you" want to tell us?
Sure, there's something I went to tell you. It's going to be 60F tomorrow and that "F" means Fahrenheit. I didn't like scouts as a kid and I have the munchies really, really bad right now. I'm eyeballing a canned ham that I'm sure Mary is saving for something.
Humor is often a way of shaking off the stress of the realities of the situation and it is no way meant to detract from the impact on the victims. I know you knew that.
I have something to tell you; canned hams are good and any “F” for Fahrenheit between 55 and 75 degrees is dandy with me.
I’m sipping a brandy and feeling mellow as I write to you. Shall we drop the subject?
With your link to nambla, I'm sure you're aware that even though it's stated on their index page that the site was inspired by the success of a campaign based in Boston's gay community to defend against a local witchhunt, nowhere does it say that they are gay men in favor of man/boy relationships. I'm sure that most gay people are at odds with nambla's quirky statement. If you need me to spell out what I mean, just say so and I will.
Please stop confusing homosexuality and pedophilia. They are two separate things and have nothing to do with each other.
You are assuming that I don’t know the difference and of course there is; please don’t assume.
The link to the site illustrates the extremes pedophiles will go too gain sympathy and acceptance.
Nevertheless, the threat to children is very real.
18 1/2 years, and the scarier thing to think about is with good behavior he can be out in maybe 10, 12 years tops.
