Former principal gets probation for fondling

September 18, 2007

A former Barnwell County principal got five years probation after pleading guilty to fondling a mentally retarded woman.

The 22-year-old victim says Larry Aldrich fondled her in the parking lot of Grace Covenant Church of God in New Ellenton in January.

Aldrich has to register as a sex offender and have counseling.

    This man has never been convicted any such thing and he was coerced into pleading guilty. Not all the facts are presented here and that includes the fact that it wasn't against her will until he rejected her and went back into the church. How do I know this? I am his daughter and trust him with my life. My father is not what this says. He won't "repeat" so why should be be behind bars?

    This is not his first time being convicted of this. How many more times before he is stopped? He is also supposed to be an ordained minister going by the name Rev. Bob???

    I thought he had been convicted of molestation some years back... if he is a repeat offender, he should be behind bars!

    This slap on the hand by the judge shows out of whack our justice system is. This man will repeat this same crime again or may have other victims. Did they look for others that maybe he had molested. Our laws need to be tougher on these sexual criminals and keep them off the streets.
