Bond denied in child molestation

  • Follow Latest News

An Augusta man convicted of child molesting in 1992 was denied bond today on new molestation charges.

James D. Cousart Jr., 36, was charged with aggravated child molestation and two counts child molestation after four children, whom he has had daily contact with, were found to have a sexually transmitted disease. A 12-year-old alleged victim reported Mr. Cousart had sodomized her numerous times, said Assistant District Attorney Pittman Morris.

According to court records, Mr. Cousart was convicted of child molestation for sexual contact with a 9-year-old girl in 1991. He has been a registered sex offender since completing a prison sentence in 1997.

Chief Judge J. Carlisle Overstreet denied bond.

Why continue to release these

Why continue to release these freaks on the children? Is this some kind of compassion? They ALWAYS find more victims. The stupid registration is in no way a protection. Kill these monsters. Harvest their usable parts and compost the rest....now!

Why, Why, does the legal system release these maggots back on the streets to molest again and again? They need to be locked up with the rest of the child molesters ,in one jail ,to molest each other, not innocent children!
