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.
