Pender Co. man sentenced to prison for sex crimes against children


PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- A Pender County man will spend about 35 years in prison for sex crimes against children, according to the District Attorney.

DA Ben David says Danny Strickland, 39, pleaded guilty this week to one count each of first degree sex offense with a child, indecent liberties with a child and crimes against nature.

David says a judge sentenced Strickland to between 27 years four month and 35 years and four months in prison because of aggravating circumstances in the case, including that the victims were under 12 and Strickland used a position of trust to commit the crimes. After his release from prison, Strickland must register as a sex offender with GPS monitoring for life, David says.

Deputies arrested Strickland in January on more than two dozen counts.

Children need our prayers!!!

This sick horrible disgusting pig has been charged but there are many more out there. Please pray this prayer to help protect our children.

Dear Lord,

I pray a most urgent prayer for all of the young people in this world who are suffering at the hands of adults for their own sinister sexual pleasure. Please help free our most vulnerable children from the horrors they may be experiencing. I would also like to pray for the healing of those who are engaging in pedophilic acts. Help them to find your awesome healing power to contain their desires and to seek to be better people. Oh dear Lord, please hear my prayer and all the prayers of people who seek to the end of suffering for our greatest gift from you: our children. Thank you Lord for sending your healing power. In the name of our dear Lord, Jesus Christ.


Amen that waz a amazing prayer


Jaba will like Bubba

NO PUNISHMENT is too great

NO PUNISHMENT is too great for a troll like this. Who preys on innocent children. It makes me sick, that the Catholic Church will lie and cover for it's child-raping priests, who are just as destructive, as this monster.


What a gross PIG!! I hope his cell mates will give him all the love he wants!!

Surely that will happen...
