A convicted murderer was granted parole for a 1984 strangulation murder, became a babysitter and molested an 8-year-old girl from 2016 to 2018. Shockingly, he blamed the victim, saying she “took advantage from him”.

Clifford Eugene Cox, now 60, was sentenced to 21 years in prison on Wednesday for sexually abusing a child, following a guilty plea in March to aggravated kidnapping and aggravated indecent solicitation of a child. If he lives long enough to see the outside of a prison again, Cox will be under lifelong post-release supervision, according to the Sedgwick County District Attorney’s Office.

After being arrested in the case in August 2018 and questioned, Cox tried to blame the victim, calling her “flirtatious” and “sexually aggressive” while claiming she “took advantage of him”, The Wichita reported. Eagle.
