Man Guilty Of South Philly Child Abduction Attempt Caught On Video

Mensah M. Dean at the Philadelphia Daily News offers a report on the guilty conviction of the man who attempted to abduct a child in South Philadelphia and was caught on video and then caught by the police.
THE MAN who made headlines last year after being captured on surveillance video trying to abduct a 10-year-old girl from a South Philadelphia sidewalk was convicted yesterday on all six charges he faced.

Carlos Figueroa-Fagot, 34, was expressionless as the jury foreman read that he was guilty of attempted kidnapping, unlawful contact with a minor, indecent assault and three related charges.
Common Pleas Judge Alice Dubow ordered an assessment to determine if Figueroa-Fagot is a violent sexual predator as defined by the state's Megan's Law. Such a finding would require him to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

He will be sentenced Dec. 11.

"I'd like him to be under the jail," the girl's mother, Joanne Payne, said after leaving court.
