A Cedar Rapids man has pleaded guilty to sexually abusing a young girl. Sixty-four-year-old James Waldron pleaded guilty to indecent contact with a four-year-old girl his wife was babysitting.
His wife, Colleen Waldron, ran an in-home day care for about 21 years. She voluntarily closed the operation when her husband was arrested last year and, as part of the agreement with the court, she cannot reopen it. Police say the abuse happened several times in the course of about a year.
Waldron faces up to two years in prison. He’ll be sentenced in mid-September. Waldron, a former realtor, has been released on bond and told not to have contact with children under the age of 18.
