Molino Man Sentenced To State Prison For Molesting Young Girl

July 15, 2021

A now 79-year old Molino man has been sentenced to five years in state prison for sexually molesting a young girl over the course of several years.

Daniel Durwood Edmonson was charged in July 2019 with sexual battery on a victim under 12-years old and lewd and lascivious molestation on a victim under age 12.

Edmonson was also sentenced to 20 years of sexual offender probation upon release, and he was designated as a sexual predator.

At age 15, the girl disclosed the abuse by Edmonson to investigators. She said Edmonson had molested her for years at his residence, when she was between the ages of 5 and 12. Edmonson and the girl were related, according to court documents.

    I feel sorry for the young lady and her family. I am a rape survivor and I was also molested. She has whole childhood taken from her from this person. Prison is to good for this person. To the young lady I know and I’ve been in your shoes. Stay strong I know it will be difficult. Please don’t make the same mistake I did years ago and bury everything. To family who let this happen I’m very disappointed in you. I don’t believe for one single minute you didn’t know what was going on. Y’all caused a child lose her childhood and her self respect and self worth. I agree with everyone else but @ concerned.

    She gets her innocents, identity, and self worth stripped away from her and he gets 5 years. Not only that, but now she gets to live in fear for the rest of HIS life because after his 5 years is up, he’s out and is able to molest all the little kids he wants to until he gets caught again. This is why people don’t speak up. Because as soon as their couple of years is up, they get out and come after those who told on them. But that’s okay as long as y’all get your pay for the day,right ?

    @concerned… they dont have to read this and if they do and there feelings are hurt who cares.. There is no way his wife or family didnt have an idea of what he was doing especially if it went on as long as it did and then stuck by his side… They are just as sick as him so who cares what their feelings are what is sad is the sentence he was given.. Hopefully he gets what he deserves behind those walls and never sees the light of day again

    @concerned. Jesus fashioned a whip out of cords and cleaned the temple. God loves the sinner but hates the sin. And, last I checked, this is a public forum. If you don’t like the comments, keep scrolling.

    What’s wrong with men molesting these children? Can’t they find a grown woman? What is tragic is that some of these children have been abused for years.

    @Concerned….really!!!! Be supportive? This TRASH violated and ruined a YOUNG GIRLS life. I’m sorry, my comments towards him was about as nice s I’m going to get. This TRASH was found GUILTY by a jury on the FACTS against him. If his family is supporting him through this then they support that type of behavior. If they read these comments and get their feelings hurt then DONT READ THEM! It’s that simple. This PEDOFILE TRASH should have had to him as @Mr. NOBODY suggested.. I hope he never breathes another breath on the outside of those prison walls…his kind should be exterminated right then and there as soon as thst guilty verdict is read and that gavel slams down!!!!

    I’mjust another victim that thinks no punishment for this kind of crime against innocent children is horrible and, he has a sickness in his mind that can never be cured, so therefore he should be sentenced to life with the Criminally Insane, maybe the crazy that people like him causes would make him understand his behavior.

    @concerned.. What should really make you sick to your stomach is what he was sentenced for!! Hopefully this Pedophile never leaves prison alive…

    Once again, the lazy DA and judge have failed us.

  10. Survivor on July 16th, 2021 11:21 pm

    @concerned was he thinking about the girls or there feelings when he did this no. I do feel sorry for his family and I will pray for them to have as little discomfort from his actions as possible but unless you have had this happen to you, then you have no idea what it does to the ones of us who has.

  11. Concerned on July 16th, 2021 10:50 pm

    I have read the comments and they make me sick to my stomach. It’s not because of what the gentleman was sentenced for, but for his family that has to see and read it. We need to remember that he has a wife, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren that are reading this. The children will be going back to school soon and they will be the rumors around campus, and it’s not their fault but just like any gossip they will be brought into it. You need to think before you speak because you never know when the tables may be turned and this could be your family we are reading about on here. So please keep your rude commits to yourself and if you can’t leave a nice supportive comment for the family then don’t leave one at all. God doesn’t like ugly.

    He molested her for 7 years but only got sentenced to 5????

  13. Matchbox on July 15th, 2021 11:21 pm

    Animals like this should never see the light of day EVER AGAIN..EVER.

  14. Susie on July 15th, 2021 7:48 pm

    Pity we can’t just toss these kind of people in an abyss where they belong. I hope and pray this child stays as strong as she was when she reported the crime. Bless her.

    He will never get out of prison. They do morbid stuff to perverts like this in prison.

  16. Liza on July 15th, 2021 3:40 pm

    Sentenced to 5 years but will he get out early for “good behavior”?
    The only protection for any potential future victims is if he never gets out.

  17. Mr. Nobody on July 15th, 2021 2:21 pm

    The problem is not people like this man. The problem is society. Society would rather place someone like this in prison and pay millions of dollars for them to enjoy their time in prison than to actually handle it. Public execution is the only way to deter these monsters.

  18. Jason on July 15th, 2021 1:04 pm

    He is 79-years old. Heck of a way to end your “golden years” by being locked-up in prison. I doubt he does a any of that probation period.

  19. Jr on July 15th, 2021 12:45 pm

    This man should have been given life. I know with the sentence and his age it may very well be LIFE. It’s sad that a trusted family member did this to a child. Cases like this should be dealt with in a different manner. Seems there’s a lot of them up there with that last name getting in trouble lately. Wonder if he MOLESTED any other children up there????
    Good riddance Sicko
