His story could make you look at the Thanksgiving turkey in a whole new way. I forbear particulars. Being upon it examined and committed, in the end he not only confessed the fact with that beast at that time, but sundry times before and at several times with all the rest of the forenamed in his indictment. As punishment, he was forced to watch all the animals killed. At first, the court had a problem figuring out which sheep Thomas favored — sheep looking pretty much alike — but Thomas helpfully pointed out his sex partners.

Tanveer Hussain was indicted last week by an Essex County grand jury for allegedly having inappropriate contact with a year-old Saranac Lake girl earlier this year. The grand jury returned the indictment Hussain charging him with one count of first-degree sexual abuse and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, a report in the Adirondack Daily Enterprise quoted a press release from Essex County District Attorney Kristy Sprague as saying.
Hussain had been arrested in March on charges of sexually abusing the minor girl, two days after he competed in the World Snowshoe Championships at Dewey Mountain Recreation Center. The minor girl had told police that on the night of February, two days after the snowshoe race, Hussain had kissed her twice and had groped her. The report added that Hussain had previously denied the charges and declined a plea deal that would have let him return to India as he wanted to clear his name. Hussain had garnered much attention before arriving in the US for the snowshoe championship after the US Embassy in New Delhi had denied him and another athlete visas around the same time President Donald Trump had issued an order barring travel into the US from seven Muslim-dominant countries.
