    The nice thing about the old days of just posting them right to the main page? We would get to hear from new police excited to take a case that we never heard from before. The conviction of James Pratt is one of those cases. Posted to the main page, then picked up by police, Pratt is a rather disgusting fellow. Well, a rather disgusting fellow who is now convicted.

    He pled to assault in the 4th degree with sexual motivation and received 365 days in jail, 335 of which are suspended. Two years probation, court costs, has to obtain drug and alcohol evaluation as well as a sex offender evaluation, cannot possess or consume alcohol, no unsupervised visits with minors, and subject to random computer searches.

    Notes from the Contributor, Almond Joy
    I have waited a long time for this conviction. Pratt was posted on 6/6/05 and was prosecuted AFTER the log was posted, on that log alone. He claimed he was innocent right up until the day he plead guilty. Now he will be spending time in jail where he belongs and everyone in his little town will know what he did.

    Pratt was trolling Washington State regional chat rooms when he ran across my decoy, 13 year old Violet. He wasted no time in getting to the fact that he was older than her, much older. In fact, he was even older than the 30 years old he stated. Pratt was a 58 year old retired 4th grade school teacher. He is one of the worst kind of predators, a respected teacher in a very small town that blamed everything under the sun for his chat, never once taking personal responsibility.

    I would like to thank the Kittitas county, Washington Prosecutors office for their fine work and persistance on this case. Even though his offense was a misdemeanor, they left no stone unturned and never offered a deal. Greg Zemple is a tough prosecutor and a pleasure to work with. Everyone at the Kittitas county prosecutors office deserves our gratitude, as they all did a masterful job on this case.

    This is our 78th conviction since June of 2004 and our 38th conviction for the year 2006 thus far. This case stretches back to early 2005, giving you a good idea of just how long some of these guys take to come to conviction. There's roughly another 270 cases out there just like this guy, waiting to come to the main page. This is Almond Joy's sixth conviction since coming onboard.
