Child predator behind bars for second time

Mobile County

A child sex predator is behind bars again on new charges. Both his current case and old one involve children in Mobile County.

James Lollar currently faces charges of sodomy and sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12 out of Mobile County. It’s something Lollar said he would never do again.

In 2007, Lollar was arrested and pleaded guilty to sodomy in the first degree. The children were ages two, seven, and nine. He was sentenced to 20 years but only had to serve five with five more as probation.

He wrote a letter to Judge Youngpeter trying to get his sentence reduced in 2010. In the letter, Lollar tells the judge he understands what he did was very wrong and says he will never do it again.

The letter, like his promise, did not hold up. Judge Youngpeter denied Lollar’s request a month later. Lollar was released from jail in 2014.

For violating his probation, Lollar could be going back to jail for 15 years. He could face even more time from the new charges out of Saraland and Mobile.
