James B. Wales, DOB 7/06/1948, raped and murdered a 12 year old girl in Binghamton NY in March of 1984. James B. Wales is currently in the Elmira Correctional Facility, Date Received 12/7/1984, Earliest Release Date 7/22/2017, Parole Hearing Date in March 2017. Since the conviction of James B. Wales came before the enactment of Megan’s Law, he won’t be required to register as a sex offender if released. “That was probably one of the worst things that ever happened in the city of Binghamton,” Cheri’s father David Lindsey said. “It was so blatant, the way it happened. She was just innocent. She was just out doing her little job, collecting on her paper route.” David Lindsey, a retired Binghamton police officer, said he’s convinced James Wales will re-offend if ever released. The Megan’s Law sex offender registration and community notification provisions were signed into law on October 31, 1994.
Sex offenders are never cured they always re-offend, Binghamton NY has enough registered sex offenders, see BROOME COUNTY NY LEADS THE STATE WITH INCREASE OF REGISTERED SEX OFFENDERS; “29 Percent Hike in the number of registered Sex Offenders in Broome County”. There were 426 registered sex offenders in Broome County in 2009, since then, that number has grown to more than 551 today, a lot of them live Downtown Binghamton at the Dixie 2000 Hotel 106 Henry St. Broome County has had the highest percent increase of Registered Sex Offenders in the State of NY, including the New York City surrounding Counties.
31 years after her murder, the family of Cheri Lindsey is trying to ensure her killer stays behind bars. It was in March 1984 that Cheri Lindsey went on her paper route on afternoon, and didn’t return home. Cheri Ann Lindsey vanished in March 1984 after she had been collecting from customers on her paper route near her home on Binghamton’s North Side. After an extensive search, her body was found in the basement of the James B. Wales residence. Wales was sentenced to 33 and a third years to life, so far he has served 31. Wales last year was moved from the maximum-security Auburn Correctional Facility to the medium-security Cayuga Correctional Facility in Moravia NY.
Cheri’s father David Lindsey (retired Binghamton Police Detective) said he understands inmates are shifted out of maximum-security facilities before they become eligible for parole so they can become acclimated to “moving back into society.” Lindsey went public with his concerns and his hope that Wales would be returned to a maximum-security prison. Those who supported his call signed petitions and sent messages to the state corrections commissioner. Lindsey said he received a letter from state Senator Thomas Libous a few weeks ago indicating corrections officials had decided they would not move Wales out of the medium-security facility. On Friday afternoon, Feb 27th, 2015, Lindsey said, he was informed that Wales had been moved to the Elmira Correctional Facility, a maximum-security site.
