Placeholder Image
A man could face most of his life behind bars for allegedly molesting a young girl.The suspect, James William Mabe, has been indicted on two counts of child rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery. The top charge of child rape carries 15 to 25 years in prison at 100 percent, with no chance of early release on parole. Mabe entered a not guilty plea to the collection of charges and was given a Nov. 5 trial date by Circuit Court Judge Bart Stanley to answer the counts.Mabe was named in sealed indictments after the young female victim came forward to reveal she had been inappropriately touched and sexually molested by Mabe.
