A suspect arrested in a 34 year old rape cold case

Sunday, April 29th, 2012

It appears that back in 1978 they sent the wrong man to prison for 4.5 years for the rape of a college student. Bennett S. Barbour was wrongly convicted of the crime and now that he has bone cancer he wanted to get his name cleared.

DNA seems to prove that he had nothing to do with the crime as there was none of his DNA found at the crime scene but they did get a hit for the real perpetrator.

The man it identified was just released from prison in 2009 after serving 30 years for the 1978 rape and attempted murder of a jogger in York County. So it seems this psycho scum is no stranger to hurting women.

56 year old James Moses Glass Jr is the aforementioned psycho scum and he will go on trial in August for this crime where his DNA is said to have been found at the scene.

Once convicted this lowlife needs to be put to death as he has shown he doesn’t deserve to breathe the same air as the rest of us.

In fact he is also in trouble for violating the terms of his parole but using an undeclared email address to open a Facebook account which means he was probably going to use it for something he didn’t want his Parole Officer to know about.

No this guy is scum plain and simple and should never see the light of day again as he has shown he cannot abide by society’s rules.

The real shame is that the poor woman back in 1978 didn’t even have the option of carrying a Pepper Spray or a Stun Gun for protection of this scumbag may have gotten sprayed or zapped way back then instead of terrorizing some poor college student.

Stay safe!
