Florence, AZ – A Pinal County jury on Friday, April 13, 2012 found Herman Lee Green Sr. guilty of 41 counts that included child molestation, sexual conduct with a minor, child abuse and aggravated assault against a person under the age of 15.
Green 43, of Casa Grande was convicted of crimes committed from 2000 to 2010 against his own four children. The case came to light on September 2010, when one of the children contacted police and said her father was abusing her sexually for the past nine years.
“I am satisfied with the conclusion of this case. We all work very hard to protect children in our county,” said James P. Walsh, Pinal County Attorney. “These were horrible crimes committed against defenseless children.”
The Casa Grande Police Department investigated the case with the assistance of Child Help and Scottsdale Healthcare.
Investigators discovered that Green took his children out of school years earlier to home-school them. It is believed that he took his them out of school in order to prevent them from disclosing to friends or teachers what was happening at home.
Green faces a sentence, which could include six life terms, plus additional penalties.
Pinal County Deputy County Attorneys Matthew Long and Jason Holmberg prosecuted the case.
The case will go before a Pinal County Superior Court judge on May 15, 2012.
