Girl in guardianship of James Matthew McDaniel-Webb

Thomas and Susan Denny adopted an 8 year girl J.D.  from foster care. After 4 years of struggles, they placed her at the Masonic Home for Children to provide the structured environment a therapist recommended. She was there 7 months. While at the Masonic Home, the girl met James Matthew McDaniel-Webb, an volunteer and benefactor of the home. On several occasions, McDaniel-Webb was allowed by the orphanage to take her on unsupervised visits to his home.

In Aug 2001, she entered McDaniel-Webb's custody.

In late Aug 2001, DHS visited his home to investigate after a physician said McDaniel-Webb inquired about castration to stop the inappropriate thoughts he had about minors. The case was closed as "unfounded" in Jan 2002.

In Nov the courts approved the custody arrangement. For close to 2 years, he sexually abused her and took pornographic photos of her. He was arrested on charges of statutory rape and child pornography.

Webb is in federal prison serving a sentence related to Internet pornography. Then he will begin a state sentence for sexually abusing the girl over the two years she lived with him.
