It is his brother john on the sex predators list. I was told by a very good source that john is in jail in Oregon. I was also told that james got one year jail time and 15 years probation. very small price considering the kids will be scarred the rest of their life. sorry bunch of court officials if you ask me.

Well, if one is in Jail in Oregon, and now one here, I say we should pray for them and their families, there are problems!!
WHAT WAS THE RELATIONSHIP between the mother and the accused?
And, if he didn't do it, then why are their medical records stating otherwise?

proof is in the court records and very unfortunately the DA in this county cut a plea bargain with this person to keep it from going to the grand jury. the doctors in vanderbilt said the baby had 2nd and 3rd degree burns all across its body and the other boy had sub cranial bleeding from being beat. so you tell me why, with this kind of proof that his punishment is no more than a slap on the wrist? what is it going to take before our justice system does something? Is it going to take one of these innocent kids getting killed before they get some balls and deal out the punishment that is due to these people?

Well, first of all, I heard the childrens mother did not want to subject them to a trial. Without their testimony, it would be hard to convict in a trial. It's hard to convict someone without witnesses. i heard the DA's office was not happy with the plea, but had no choice without their testimony. I don't know.

bull shit. I am not disputing what you say but they should have been able to prosecute with the evidence they had along with testimony from the doctors. there is people who have gotten convicted for murder even though no body had been found or no witnesses.

i am the childrens father and grandmother from oregon i warned her to keep him away from my children and she ran away with him obviously nieve, to run away with someone elses children with someone u dont know now my kids are scarred for life. he should have never had the chance to even be around them he is a freak and my sons are to wonderful to have this happen. if i had my way i would sentence him to life with me. prison and bubba have nothing on me. keep praying they are getting better every minute.they need all the support they can get.

thanks so much for letting us know...everyone in the community has wondered how those babies are doing. i am so sorry they had to suffer like they did. i think the whole family is very dangerous and i am so glad those children are in a safe place now. i am really shocked and deeply saddened that james only got a very little amount of time for such a crime as this.
thanks again for taking time to post and let us know they are making progress.

This idiot has now been charged with rape of a child! He allegedly snuck into a 12 year old girls window, spent the night, and snuck back out the next morning. It's okay though, because he claimed it was "consensual"! What a nasty, horrible, excuse for a human being.

Get your facts straight. The person you are talking about is not the same one this topic was started on.

tell it like it is wrote:
the charges are in fact false.this kid has been in the system in nc before and was coached by his family there in a sick but twisted attempt to get the kids back home.if you dont like him its one thing.but to crucify him for charges you can not prove nor do you know anything about is ridiculous. all ahve sinned and fallen short of the glory of god...let he who has not sinned throw the first stone...judge not least you be judged.....i guess all you people with diarreah of the mouth have all the facts and are intelligent enough to assume the worst. look at your self in the mirror are you perfect.have you drank liquor,cursed,had pre marital sex,masturbated,smoked a fatty,done something you dont want anyone to know about or maybe just disobeyed your parents or god maybe you just told a little white lie or cheated on your spouse/girlfriend/boyfriend. This young man is as inncent and as guilty as you are so here is an idea..........why dont you all just keep your mouths shut and pray for the whole family and your selves....you self rigtheous ,self serving idiots.....i am sure most of you will need a dictionary to look up some of the words so good luck
you no better than these people you calling them names is right? this man has to be tryed and go by the law of the land the bible says and say pray for them right but the things u r saying you to need prayer and read more of gods word ,

I live in central Georgia and when someone does something like that here they are treated just as if they had committed murder. Sometimes with the way these children are left when they grow up with all their problems they wish they had been killed. You folks need to start cleaning house up there with your all your officials. I hear you have a judge that slaps people on the wrist and lets them go. Then you get him out of office (not just because of drugs but things like this too). Why do you pay all your taxes to have people running around doing your family, friends and neighbors like this. I don't think so. You don't have to wait for re-election you get enough stuff on law officials, attorneys, judges and whoever, then you call the TBI or FBI. Get involved and stand up for your childrens rights. If more prisons are needed then they need to be built but get these ANIMALS out of your society and it all starts with you. However, he will have his day but he does not need to walk among us now.
