I know this man as well. I have seen the way he is with his children. He is very protective, probably overprotective, He doesn't allow his children to watch anything with sexual content or swearing. He yelled at a man one time because he used the word hell in the wrong context in front of them. These allegations against him are ludacris and unfouned. He is a good man and a great father.

This guy is a scumbag pedophile plain and simple. Forced castration and a good beating is a good start.

You don't even know this guy. I do. He wouldn't even be capable of doing what he is accused of. I remember him berating another soldier for saying a teenagd access was attractive. He has a teenage sister and daughter whom both believe he is innocent. He is a Christian man with Godly values. He was ACCUSED of these charges not convicted. If everybody who knows him say he is innocent, why would you, a stranger, say he is not?

The Christian thing is a sham too it's all a front. Again I know this guy and he definitely has mental problems and if he was a good Christian so was Hitler..

You have absolutely NO IDEA who he is! You are probably just some random soldier who doesn't spend any time at all with him. You obviously don't know him because if you did you would know beyond a doubt he is innocent. I have known him very personally for over a year now and he would never do this. You are such an idiot and your opinion of him is based on nothing.

Nope no trial yet... the Army has taken over the case... hopefully it will be over with soon... so the girls can move on and start healing. They have been dealing with it WAY TOO LONG. They are now in therapy and are doing well.... considering what they have been through...

Seriously? This is your response? Hope you don't feel the same when someone hurts your kids!!

Good people do bad things sometimes.

How dare any of you defend this man?? You disgust me. As far as I'm concerned if you're accused of hurting a child your GUILTY until you prove your innocent!!!

For security purposes I' m unable to use my name.
I am Intelligence Agent, I know James personally,
He is a loving father, and husband,I do not understand how the justice system to be so corrupt thus sentence an innocent man. When guilty man run free. I've seen this happen time and time again.
when would justice prevail?
No man could have been a better father he is kind,understanding, He want beyond his way to make sure his family is safe.
He would gladly take a bullet for he's family.
This man was an honorable soldier
He was an Army medic served his country that he protected as well as He's loved ones as well as
Yours.
Please stop your lies about him
Instead keep him in your prayers and his wife and kids
sincerely DV

I know James personally from Herkimer College. I've seen him around his daughter, around my daughter, and he's a great guy. Very devoted and loving family man, and I would trust him with mine, and my daughters life.

What I hate seeing is the public media tearing this man down, ruining his life, and ruining the lives of his new family. Because of these allegations, his young daughter has been left without a father.

I don't presume to know the details of what happened, and I don't care to. All I know is that a good man has been torn from his family, and now they are left devastated without him.

It's weird how you can post someting about someone you do not know. How about get a life verse saying some negative stuff on here.. I have a question since everyone wants to say stuff about him how about where was the mother besides whoring herself out with yet another man maybe even having another kid that she doesn't take care of it... so such loser.

I have known this man since we were 11. He has always been caring and respectful to every walk of life. I know of a lot of his trials. I don't believe one ounce he did this. I have young children too and I don't take things done to children very kindly. But this man. No way. He is a Godly justly man. He took his ex ' s children has his own has she went on and laid around town. I'm very sorry the girls are back with her. She gave her daughters up with no fight and signed them over. She has 7 kids from different military personal. None have the same dad. You heard me, none.

In this thread: people in denial that a pedophile is getting what he deserves.

I know this guy as well and am not a fan. Even so for all the above mentioned reasons which I know to be fact make these allegations very hard to believe

Just because he has mental problems (stemming from a horrendous marriage as well as fighting in the Army) doesn't make him a pedophile. I know him well too, all his life in fact. Even though I'm not a fan I'd be shocked if these allegations turned out to be true.
