    CO - Arrested With 873 Counts of Child Molestation

    I didn't find anything on this with a search - Jeffrey L. Bigham of Delta, CO has been arrested and charged with *at least* 873 counts of molesting a young boy (yes, same boy!) from the time he was 11 through 15. That's almost daily.

    Some articles say the boy lived with this skeev and "a woman." Relative? Stepfather? No one seems clear on that. The boy has been afraid to come forward - someone else tipped the police after confronting Bigham, at which time Bigham admitted it "wasn't right." UNDERSTATEMENT much?? Thank goodness they told. Why wasn't anyone else noticing this??

    It has to be hard for the third party to prove. With those numbers, it could have been the mom who figured it out. Now I have to go be sick and after that pray for the boy's recovery.

    My guess is that either the boy noted the attacks in a journal or a calendar or that a specially trained detective helped him do the calculations. Something like...."every single Thursday, Friday and Saturday night since this date".

    Often, boys suffer in silence far longer than girls. They seem to have such deep shame. My heart is with the teen. He deserves the very best treatment and a safe place to heal.

    You know the answer to that, Filly, you don't "recover". You survive. Hopefully he will survive.

    I've been spending some time reading over at the fine site, malesurvivor.org. I wish that website could be listed in every men's room and school restroom in the country. They do fine work at reaching out to the victims.....who often move on to become survivors.

    Sexually Assaulting Child 873 Times Gets Suspect Community Corrections

    Delta - The Delta man facing life behind bars after pleading guilty to sexually assaulting a child nearly 900 times won't have to serve any more time behind bars.

    The prosecutor, public defender, and judge all decided that a year in community corrections would be best for Jeffrey Bigham. The 47-year-old was charged with six counts of sexual assault on a child.

    Maybe Missizzy will chime in on this, I am snipping a piece from the article above because I am not sure the way they decided to come to their conclusion is right. The victim requested he only recieve probation and so it be

    First off this boy is the victim and of course he is going to request a lighter sentence for this man because of the abuse, thats how it rolls. This boy has been traumatized over and over agin by this monster he should have never even been asked or involved in the sentencing aspect of this case, and the monster who did this to him should never see the light of day again, WTF comes to mind.

    SNIPPED.....................................

    His victim is now in his late teens. The victim asked for Bigham to get probation.

    Prosecutor Wiley Christopher told NewsChannel 5 he went with that suggestion because that's what the victim wanted. Christopher also said he was for probation because they want other children of sexual abuse to feel comfortable coming forward.

    The victim's wishes (especially when they are older) are considered but I believe that the judge should have considered the very real possibility of reoffending. I understand that the number of charges drop due to the massive work needed to prove each offense. Remember Dr. Earl Bradley's original rape charges where over 500 but were consolidated to 24.

    I'm not clear what the repercussions are for this man if he doesn't follow through with his prescribed treatment and probation. Often probation is revoked if one will not submit to polygraphs and all the other rigors of probation.

    FWIW, our children's rapist was given 8 days in lock-up (essentially one day for each child he raped) and referred to community based treatment. After three months, when he failed his polygraphs and refused to take part in treatment, he was called back in front of the judge and ordered locked up for 10 years. He served every day of it too.

    So this story might not be fully told. My heart just hurts for that boy. Almost daily abuse is all he knows. I hope he has intensive therapy.

    That poor young man. I hope that by telling his story and seeing this piece of <-> get thrown in jail, that he can begin the journey toward a healthy adulthood. I hope there will be a lot of counseling and psychological services available to him.
    Just my opinions (and I have been wrong before)!
