Molestation trial begins

June 20, 2005

Cairo-- Trial is getting underway for a man accused of molesting three-children in Grady County.

Authorities say Leslie Cannon lured the boys into his home with candy and toys. They add that he would then watch pornography with them before molesting them.

Cannon is charged with two-counts of child molestation, and two-counts of enticing a child for indecent purposes. He's also charged with two-counts of sexual exploitation of children, and one-count of aggravated child molestation.

District Attorney Joe Mulholland expects the jury to begin deliberations Tuesday. If convicted, Cannon could be sentenced to more than 100-years in prison.
