James Barbour, the Broadway actor who was recently seen in the world premiere of A Tale of Two Cities, has pleaded guilty to "two misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a minor," according to the Associated Press.

The 41-year-old actor — who has appeared on Broadway in Assassins, Urinetown, Jane Eyre, Carousel, Cyrano - The Musical and Beauty and the Beast — had been indicted in 2006 on nine counts of engaging in criminal sexual acts, sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.

Barbour, AP reports, admitted that he sexually touched a 15-year-old female fan when she visited him backstage following a performance of Jane Eyre in 2001 and when she later visited his apartment on New York's Upper West Side.

Barbour will not have to register as a sex offender because he pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor. The lesser charge, however, was in exchange for a 60-day jail sentence and three years of probation. Sentencing will take place Feb. 29 at Manhattan's State Supreme Court.

It'd be a huge gamble. People won't ever forget what he did.

i guess the "c'mon, she was totally asking for it in the way that only a 15 year-old can" defense didn't quite work out. i hope he ends up emptying garbage cans on a disney cruise ship.

I can top that Papa- from my neck of the woods:

"A retired Canadian pastor likely on track to leave a McHenry County courtroom Friday with probation for sexually abusing a 4-year-old girl instead found himself behind bars after he told a judge that the girl acted sexually provocative toward him.

“I tried to avoid the encounters. On a couple of times, I thought I was being sexually harassed,” Kenneth R. Cooke, 73, told a judge. “I think there is psychological evidence today that children, even in their younger years, could become interested in sex.”

After listening to Cooke’s statements, Judge Joseph Condon sentenced him to three years in prison. Condon said the sentence was based partly on Cooke’s attitude."

Yes- the 73 year old was harrassed and finally seduced by a 4 year old girl.
She seduced me!
No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

I brought him a copy of "Highlights for Children" to sign and he walked right by me.

Too funny, Joe!



And the story about the pastor made me throw up in my mouth a little.

How much of that 60 day sentence will he have to serve? And what do other inmates do to child molesters in jail?

Thanks PJ for getting my righteous indignation all hot and bothered.

I cannot believe that some of the posters really believe what they are saying.
