A Collins man pleaded guilty Tuesday to sexually abusing a 4-year-old New London girl.

Joseph B. Chairez, 26, of 774 Hartland Center Road, will be sentenced Aug. 21, Huron County Prosecutor Russell Leffler said. Leffler and defense attorney John Allton agreed to recommend the defendant serve 10 years in prison and be classified as a sexual predator, which means a lifetime of address registration and verification.

The judge doesn’t have to follow the recommendation, but “the odds are strong” he will, Leffler said.

Chairez pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of rape in exchange for the state dismissing two other charges.

“This guy has admitted to doing this on one occasion,” Leffler said. “The girl said it happened three times.”

The alleged offenses occurred when Chairez babysat the daughter of a friend in May and June 2006.

In early May, a Huron County social worker told New London Police Chief Mark Holden about a third-hand tip she received about a suspected sexual assault involving Chairez and the victim. During a May 21 interview, the defendant admitted to Holden he sexually abused the girl.

Holden described Chairez as regretful during the interview.

Leffler congratulated Holden: “He got an admission from this guy,” he said, which is especially important since the victim is so young.

Authorities also discovered a home-made video of Chairez performing sex acts with two girls, 13 and 16.

“He’s got some real issues,” Leffler said.

Holden said one of the witnesses is from Florida, where there are other ongoing investigations into Chairez’s conduct with three or more victims, from ages 13 to 17.

Chairez has been in custody in the Huron County Jail since May 21, unable to post a $100,000 bond.

no, don't hope for more pain or death. It seems that is all people write/comment about after seeing stuff like this. We (as in Americans) are supposed to believe in proper punishment. Do these values only extend to our justice system? Each of us our representations of these values and we should hold them to heart. It is easy to wish malace against this man and many more like him (if not worse) but it is harder and much more valuble to think about what could be done for the victim. How many of you who speak of harsher punishment would actually take time out of your day to spend time with the victim even for a little while? How many would vote yes to raising taxes for more programs to help victims, perpertrators, or possible future victims? Statistics have shown that victims of previous sex abuse have a higher chance of being raped than those who have never been victimized. These are children who have been raped by family and friends whose torture continues long into adulthood. Lack of people willing to do something is what progresses this violence and this may just be me who thinks this (sarcastic tone), but wishing/doing violence does not seem to be the best way to stop the violence.

Don't drop the soap, Chairez! skunk_mama, what he has done to this four year old will most likely result in a lifetime of trauma for her. It is unreasonable to not wish a lifetime of trauma on him. On the other hand, just because you support a lifetime of trauma for a man who RAPED A FOUR YEAR OLD doesn't mean that you don't support more services for victims. They aren't mutually exclusive. He needs a longer sentence than ten years, too. How's that for more support for victims? Show that the crime means something by sentencing him for life.

thank you Annie ... i agree with you completely .. it is nice and kind to want to believe that he can be rehabilatated back into society , but statistaclly that is very rare .. he is a monster and it is a fact that when a rapist and a molester is caught , it is rarely their first attack , and rarely their first victim , so just try to immagine how many little toddlers are out there who will be totally emotionally impared because of this man (and i use the term very loosely).. he is a monster , one of the worst monsters around to impose and violate such young and innocent victims, and 10 years is definately not justice for what he has done ... where is the death penalty ??

Lets just hope he gets as good as he gave when he meets his cell-mate. It would be the perfect justice I have zero tolerance for this kind of crap and I hope they throw away the key to his cell when he gets there.

men like this need to have their genitals remaoved slowly with a sharp object so that they feel every bit of pain that they subjected to their victim. what does a man of that age or any age find sexually attractive about a child of that age? it's just sickening to read about these things. i have 3 children of my own and just the thought of people like that being on the streets scares the hell out me. it could be someone standing next to you in the store and they could be eyeballing your child at that moment and not even know it.goose bumps!!!

mad (Anonymous)

Most men in prison have children and hate child molesters. He will get his as* beat everyday he's there. It's not fair that he only got 10yrs. and will most likely be out in 6 on paroll. I don't see the justice in this. A local man was sent to prison for 15yrs. for breaking and entering, why does a sick pervert like this man only get 10. Our judical system sucks!

bobalouey (Anon...

His offending organ should be cut off with a dull knife and shoved down his throat so he can choke to death on it!!!!

sitting in the ...

Mad' i agree but like you said he'll probably get paroled in 6 yrs i doubt he'll make that long unless he's put in isolation save MY TAX PAYING MONEY and destroy these monsters for permanently ruining these innocent children. I got a recommendation you get convicted you go right to the front of the line on death row and i bet that will get there attention, forget appeals .

Annie (Anonymous)

Don't forget, not only did he rape a four year old but authorities found a video of this guy performing sex acts with a 13 and 16 year old. Where are the charges for this??

NORWALK NATIVE ...

i was 3 and i havent forgotten .i pray this is not the same for this child.
no child should have to be told later to forgive such a sick person.
they say it is the first positive step in healing and living a normal healthy life again.make a positive example of him and thats a step in healthy living for all of the children everywhere near and far. he stole something far more precious than a material thing so 25-life would work...

angie (Anonymous)

people are sick,i tell you what if anyone ever touched my daughter or thought about touching my daughter,i would cut his d**k off and shove it down his f**king throat

angie (Anonymous)

hey mad he will be lucky if he servives a month in prison,those men who are in prison will kill him and i hope they do,i think that they should make a law that if you rape a child you should get executed for it,it will be one less rapist we have.there are so many sex offenders out there i am afraid to let my kids play outside,the sex offenders are everywhere,i get the notification on email when there is a new one and i bet i get at least 1 a month.they need to do something to these perverts.

methodman

definitely not a long enough sentence. people like this are at the bottom of the barrel. preying upon ones who can't defend themselves. public executions seem like a more fitting punishment than a short prison sentence and then having to register as a sex offender. Public humiliation and neighbor awareness that this guy lives beside me when he gets out isn't enough for me.
