Simply From Looking At Him I Find It Hard To Believe That This Guy Is A Pervert

james-riversoThe completely non-pedophile-looking man to the left is James Riverso, the former women’s soccer coach at LeMoyne College in Syracuse, New York. He is the former coach due to his resignation earlier this month amid accusations that he sent sexually-explicit cell phone messages to an underage girl he was coaching in a youth soccer club. Riverso “was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and disseminating indecent material to a minor.”

Oh, but if you thought the shitstorm he brought upon himself would end there, you would be grossly mistaken. It gets worse: two more girls have come forward with similar allegations against the 28-year-old. He now faces 18 more counts, “including sex abuse and disseminating indecent material to minors.”

Investigators say he sent sexually explicit messages and photos to the victims’ cell phones over several months. He’s also accused of having a physical relationship with the teenage girls he coached in a youth soccer league.

Yikes. Not a good situation for this guy, but if he’s guilty of the charges, you have to admit he deserves every ounce (or inch) of punishment he gets – remember, they love guys like these in the slammer.

I guess it’s true what they say: you can never tell a book by its cover. Talk about a normal-looking guy. He looks like he has absolutely nothing to hide.

Riiiiight. Jesus, could he match what most people’s mental image of a pedophile any more? When he got those urges, he should have just “riverso-ed course” and sought treatment. See what I did there? Yes, I know, it was inappropriate, but still pretty good, right? No?
