FBI ex-boss admits assaulting 6-year-old girl
Chicago Sun-Times ^ | 2-18-04 | N/A

Posted on 02/18/2004 3:04:13 PM PST by JustPiper

WASHINGTON -- The former chief internal watchdog at the FBI has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl and has admitted he had a history of molesting other children before he joined the bureau for what became a two-decade career.

John H. Conditt Jr., 53, was sentenced last week to 12 years in prison in Fort Worth, Texas, after he admitted he molested the daughter of two FBI agents after he retired.

He acknowledged molesting at least two other girls before he began his law enforcement career, his lawyer said.

Conditt headed the internal affairs unit that investigates agent wrongdoing for the Office of Professional Responsibility at FBI headquarters in Washington from 1999 until his retirement in June 2001, the FBI said. He wrote articles in law enforcement journals on how police agencies could effectively investigate their own conduct.

FBI officials said Tuesday they had no information to suggest that Conditt had any problems during his career and he was never the subject of an investigation.

Tarrant County Assistant District Attorney Mitch Poe, who prosecuted the case, said he wanted a longer prison sentence and was skeptical of Conditt's claim that his molestation of children subsided during his FBI career.

A recently retired FBI whistleblower who brought allegations to Conditt's office that agents had not aggressively pursued evidence of sexual abuse in Indian country said Tuesday she now questions whether his personal history affected that decision.

''Before, it never made any sense,'' retired agent Jane Turner said of the FBI's decision to decline to further investigate her allegations. ''Now I can understand. Why in the world wouldn't you want to investigate that?''

Attorney Toby Goldsmith said he was concerned about the safety of his client in prison. ''He's not going to be comfortable in the penitentiary,'' the lawyer said.

I don't believe for a moment that a pedophile can molest two girls, then go twenty years clean as a whistle, then molest another when he retires. Not for a moment.

Amazing it made it to trial.  You'd think he would have had an "accident."

He gets twelve years for this while a bishop in Phoenix runs over, kills a guy, flees the scene of the crime, and tries to get his car repaired without anyone knowing, is looking at three years confinement max, maybe just probation.  Something is seriously screwed up in this country.

Ah, the poor, poor, pitiful pederast. As if anybody on Earth gave a rat's about this creep's comfort.

There should only be one sentence for diddlers: execution. It is an affront to the 10,000 years the human race has spent scratching and clawing its way up from the status of apes, to have to share our breathing air with this sort of mutant. Kill him, and all his NAMBLA pals - FBI or no. Kill him.

when he gets out at age 65

Your math is faulty. He is 53 now, he got sentenced to 12 years in a State system. That means he'll probably get out when he is 57 or 58.

While time in the Federal system is now approximately what the judge pronounces, most state prisoners are up for parole after a third of their sentence.

Wonder if he was connected in some way to the "cone of silence" that covered convicted spy and FBI agent Robert Hanson?

He was a PT monster, could do more one armed pushups than most of us could do with two arms.

In my eyes child molestation is worse than hit and run. How can you think otherwise?

A belief in creationism is not required to be a conservative, no? Or are you just talking out of your ass?

"Something is seriously screwed up in this country."

Yes, but not in this case. Arizona and Texas are two different jurisdictions with two entirely different populations and politics. Each of them is entitled to set its own sentencing practice. Or don't you believe in states' rights? Would it make you happy if Vermont conformed its state gun laws to those of New York, just for the sake of "uniformity"?

I'd be happy if a man who killed someone with his car and drove away got something more than a max three year sentence, possibly only probation. That's not right in any state.

It wasn't murder, it wasn't even homicide. None of the authorities ever implied it was anything other than an accident, which was not Bishop O'Brien's fault. The only thing he was guilty, or even accused of, was hit and run, for which he will punished.

In light of those facts, to consider hit and run as comparable to the molestation of children would be perverse.

"I'd be happy if a man who killed someone with his car and drove away got something more than a max three year sentence,,,"

A guy in my town here in California did just that, got caught and did no time at all. Probation, alcohol treatment, community service. Drunk driving hit-and-run and he essentially skated. California voters, in their wisdom, have decided that they like criminals and don't want to build more prisons (a moot point since they can't afford a pot to pee in these days -- evidently they also like be robbed blind by their legislators). So they only incarcerate the really bad ones and then let them out way before their sentences are up.

The beauty of states' rights is that you can always move to another state once the state you live in goes completely insane, like mine has.
