    GA - Michael Pearson for child molestation, Hapeville, 2001

    Judge gives child molester an earful

    Staff report
    Published on: 10/13/06
    Fulton County Superior Court Judge Craig Schwall made no attempt to hide his disdain this week in sentencing a convicted child molester.

    Here are his excerpted comments in court as he sentenced 48-year-old Michael J. Pearson on one count each of child molestation and aggravated sexual battery on Pearson's 5-year-old step-granddaughter.


    The offenses occurred in 2001 while the girl was living with Pearson and his wife in a Hapeville motel.

    The assistant district attorney is Rewa Collier, who is asked by the judge about the calls Pearson made from jail, attempting to enlist his wife in discouraging the victim from testifying. The victim's name has been redacted by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

    An excerpt:

    Schwall: The grandmother of these children, your wife, is a coward. She is a coward because she can't come and sit in this courtroom and let all these jurors see that you're more important to her as a sexual predator than her grandchildren. She is a coward because she can have all these phone conversations and try to influence witnesses and try to tamper with witnesses, but she can't come here and let this jury see her face, and I cannot imagine the mothers of these children allowing them to have anything to do with the woman you're married to. And if I look or sound upset, I am. I am going to impute the conduct of the grandmother to you.

    THAT most certainly had to be said.

    there's more and i bow down to this judge for saying what HAS to be said to these molesters and outcasts of society!

    It really is worth a read. He gave it to the molester's wife, as well - and for good reason.

    Way to go judge! I think, if I'd been in the courtroom, I would have given him a standing ovation. And then some baliff would drag me away.
