Child molester with foot fetish to spend life behind bars

From page A3 | August 16, 2014 |

FAIRFIELD — A child molester with a foot fetish was sentenced Friday to life in prison without possibility of parole.

Delvon L. Hammond, a 32-year-old deviant ex-con and registered sex offender from Fairfield, was bicycling to his therapist’s office on the afternoon of July 10, 2012, when he spotted a 10-year-old girl playing alone in front of her Utah Street home. Hammond sneaked up on the girl, grabbed one of her legs, lifted it to his waist and shoved her foot down the front of his pants.

The girl broke free a few seconds later and fled to safety.

Hammond had only been out on the streets for a few days. He’d been locked up for a few months after his parole officer checked Hammond’s smartphone and found he had been browsing pornographic websites that feature the feet of young girls.

Hammond was on parole after serving a seven-year prison sentence for having committed an eerily similar crime in 2004 at NorthBay Medical Center. Hammond encountered a 12-year-old girl sitting alone in a waiting room, watching television. Hammond stood in front of the girl, grabbed her foot, took off one of her shoes, undid his pants and rubbed her foot against his groin.

    The following is just my personal opinion and hope which I'm guaranteed under the constitution: I hope this guy gets killed in prison. I hope he's tortured for ruining those innocent lives. I hope every inmate at his prison learns of his crimes and punishes him with their own set of rules. Life In prison is not enough. Society has absolutely no place for people like him. He should be executed for the innocence he's taken away. A 10 year old girl?! Come on Bro anyone that has a daughter would understand. My frustrations against this sick excuse for a man

    How can someone say that about another person. You don't know all the facts on this case at all. They had no DNA and the girls had picked to different people out of the line up. Which means she was really unshore who it was. Just because he was black and they don't care about no one. As long as they have someone to blame it on. Their are so many holes in this case it is ashame. People believe what is written, if it was your child that was going to prison and they don't have proof that he really did it, the court system is wrong. Their was not evidence to say he really did it nothing to know one. Their are teachers in your school system that are molesting children everyday and no one doesn't care. but someone that has been railroaded by the system it convicted of a crime that they have no witness or DNA, which to me they should have done just to make sure they did not do. I have no faith in the court system because they are all in it for the money anyway. Why don't all of you put yourself in his shoes and be treated they way he has been treated and see how you like it. Watch the program called VINDICTED and see how many people have been convicted of a crime that they did not do, See how often this happens to innocent people. Those of you that are making your smart comments are probable a sex offender yourself lusting after young girls. That is a sin by it self, so who are you to say something about anyone. You need to get all the facts and detail before you judge anyone.. GOD will make sure he will be ok. Non of you are GOD and he knows the truth, so stop pretending you are the judge and the jury because you are not. GOD said love everyone and have a open heart. GOD will bless him.

    Hmm so you expect me to believe that after days of being released for watching porn that featured the feet of young girls it was someone else? Not only that but he has done this in the PAST!! People don't do sick things like this everyday, this isn't a common crime. People don't wake up in the morning and decide to do stuff like that. Even though there is no DNA as your claiming I'm pretty sure his past isn't just a coincidence. You're right I'm don't know all of the details of this case but I also wasn't born yesterday. How about his first case? Was there DNA on that one or did he take a plea deal? It had to be one or the other if he was convicted or plead previously there is no way he did 7 years without it. This guy has a history of doing this sick stuff so I can only go off the article. I'm sure the daily republic doesn't target people at random to slander their name in the local paper. I don't know him but what I do know of him makes me never wanna get to know him. Who would? Keep believing someone else did this and he just happened to have the same sick past you just sound dumb.

    It never cease to amaze me for a family member to say he or she didn't do this type of act. These people are sick and need help and prison is the best solution for these P.O.S's so they don't hurt anyone but themselves. Better yet build a prison in Mojave out in the middle of nowhere. If the heat don't kill them other inmate's will.

    Get the facts right . Do more research if you are a so called reporter. Just because you was in Iraq does not mean you report the actual facts. Lucy
