This is what I have trouble understanding.
Why is this guy even out of prison to begin with?
He was convicted several years ago for this...and now he strikes again.
This has now messed up another kids life.
These pervs need to be dealt with.

I wrote about this man when I found out he moved to Sciotoville, I was called a trouble maker. It was my daughter that Lester Grant raped the first time. He did 17 yrs out of a 5 to 25 sentence. They should have throwed away the key. His newest victim, my heart goes out to the little girl. However...her mothers another story. She had a baby with this pervert. My son knows her and ran into her at wal-marts. Bragging about the baby and if it looked like him. She said she READ THE COURT DOCKET and didn't believe he did it, plus, he still denied it to her. She brought back all those memories to him, made him feel like shit. She was warned and chose to ignore it. Once a baby raper, always one. My family is once again living this, especially my kids. Detectives have talked to me, my son and want to talk to my daughter. We will help anyway we can to see he spends the rest of his life in prison. We received a life sentence with this not 5 to 25.

The rape of a child is the felony that is routinely given the least amount of jail time. It should be a crime that is punishable by death.

I recently read a story on www.pysih.com , where a man raped a 5 MONTH OLD BABY. Raped, with his adult penis, causing permanent damage. He got community service. It is sickening that a crime so horrible is allowed to happen over and over again, because the law does not care.

I have 2 daughters n if a man ever did anything to my babies, I would cut off his penis and shove it down his throat. He would either bleed to death or choke to death. But I hope it would be slow n painful. Because this is what they would deserve.

Lester should have never gotten out of prison. They should have gave him death. And if it is Mary's daughter that was molested, Mary should go to prison also. She allowed a child molester in her home willingly. And as funny said, she was told. His family had told her. It is a shame that this mother would choose some man over the babies. I hope for the childs sake that they get her counciling. A childs innocense taking that could have been prevented.

Hi, no she had all boys and went through this not long after it happened to my daughter, it involved Leadingham.
To mom and 2 daughters, you are in shock when it happens, by that time he was in jail and we were not around him, we just hoped he was getting his in prison. As far as Mary, she needs charges brought against her, and I'd like to say her kids taken from her. But thinking of the little girl, she's in need of her mother for now unless she was close to a grandmother, someone like that, to help her feel safe and to move out of the house they lived in.

Yes, the last thing that needs to happen in this situation is the gril being taken from her mother. Regardless of how horrible the mom was for allowing a child molester around her children, the kid is in a very fragile psychological state. Pulling her from her family would cause more damage than good... a 9 year old would think she did something wrong and was being punished.

The whole family needs psychological help, and I hope they get it.

O.k., This is driving me nuts. Now first off, I AM NOT STICKING UP FOR THIS PERVERT AT ALL, but anyone that knows this child's Mother, knows that this is not the first man that she has made these exact accusations about involving the same child. When I saw this story it was like deja vu all over again. She has made these accusation's about the child's real Father for years. Now, having said that, as a parent myself, "If" my child has already been molested by her own Father, why in the hell would you knowingly and willingly bring a CONVICTED and registered sex offender into your home? I know this woman and I'm telling you, these kids would be better off away from her. She has damaged these children wayyyy before this pervert ever entered the picture. Just something to think about. By the way, I hope this guy goes away for the rest of his if he did it and he deserves everything he gets if and when he's convicted.

This a very sad but true story you hear of things like this happening all over the world.
This man should have never been givin the chance to be around children the first time around allowing it to happen over again.
Prayers and Many blessings to the young girl and her family.
