Mabe sentenced for molesting 7-year-old
James William Mabe was sentenced to 22 years for molesting a child.
A man has been sentenced to 22 years in prison for molesting a 7-year-old girl.The molester, James William Mabe, was sentenced by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley in the wake of his conviction earlier this year on lesser charges of attempted rape of a child. He had originally been charged with child rape, a crime that carries 25 to 40 years in prison without chance of parole. However, his conviction on the lesser charge allows him both a lesser sentence of 22 years and the possibility of parole since he was sentenced as a Range-One offender due to his minor criminal record.
