Tuesday, March 10, 2009

A Cape Girardeau man was sentenced to 8 years in prison on a child molestation conviction Monday, according to a news release sent out this morning by Cape Girardeau County Prosecuting Attorney Morley Swingle.
Micheal Brian Hinman, 29, of 224 F Fort St., had earlier pleaded guilty to fondling the genitals of a 5-year-old girl, according to the news release. Hinman initially denied the crime in interviews with police, but later gave a written confession.
In the confession, Hinman said "the Devil" was fighting him, and "jail time isn't going to fix what I did."
