Louisville Priest Convicted of Child Molesting

By  | 

A Grayson Circuit Court jury deliberated 90 minutes Monday night before convicting James Hargadon of sexually molesting two boys in 1974. Hargadon showed no emotion when the verdict was read.

Two men, one from Louisville and one from Texas, testified they were molested in a cabin at Rough River State Park in Grayson County in 1974. Hargadon's bond was revoked, and he was ordered to the Grayson County Detention Center. He was recommended to serve an eight-year sentence.

A sentencing date hasn't been set.
