Va. man arrested for assaulting teen

By Washington Post editors

An 85-year-old Fredericksburg man is being held after he allegedly sexually assaulted a 17-year-old teen walking home from school, WUSA 9 reports.

Police say John William Sinnett approached the girl as she walked home from school Monday afternoon and offered her a ride. When she got in the car, he locked the door and began to fondle her. Police say the girl was able to get away and call for help.

Sinnett was already on house arrest for attacking a 21-year-old woman 10 months ago.

Sexual predators often times cannot be rehabilitated. This guy needs to die in prison.

Oh, why did the girl get into his car? Because he is old and she figured he's harmless?
