Cairo- A convicted child molester is heading to prison for several decades.
Leslie Cannon was sentenced in Grady County superior court Tuesday afternoon to 20 years behind bars . He was accused of using toys and candy to entice children into his home. District Attorney Joe Mulholland says Cannon would then fondle and sodomize the boys. Cannon didn't feel like discussing his sentence as he was led away.
"Mister Cannon, would you like to say anything about the conviction or sentence? [Silence] No comments?," asked WALB News 10 Reporter, Stephen Ryan. "No comment," responded Cannon.
On the other hand, Mulholland was pleased about the judge's decision. "Any time they go to prison for 20 years, and they're 50 years old, there's a good chance they hopefully will never come out," he says.
Cannon was found guilty on all seven counts against him. They ranged from child molestation to sexual exploitation of children. He didn't have any reaction at all when his sentence was read.
