A local child molester had guilt written all over his face from a recorded telephone

conversation with the victim.

It was a call set up by the police.

Anthony Mashburn was convicted recently of having a sexual relationship

with a girl starting when she was in the first grade.

On the recording.....the victim told Mashburn she revealed their relationship to

somebody.....and asked how she should respond if others approach her about it.

Mashburn paused for about 20 seconds...then told her to lie about it.......

LaPorte County Prosecutor John Espar was our guest yesterday on the Breakfast Showcase

on AM 1540 WLOI.....

Mashburn could receive up to 50 years on each of two counts and up to eight

additional years apiece on two other counts.

Sentencing is set for the 11th of next month.
