A Roosevelt man who for seven years sexually abused a young girl and who also sexually abused the girl's 11-year-old friend will have his next parole hearing in 1994.

Monte Lee Mitchell, 34, appeared Friday before the Board of Pardons for his convictions on one count of aggravated sexual abuse of a minor and a second count of sexual abuse of a child.

Mitchell is serving a 6-years-to-life sentence in connection with the incidents. "I find it a little pathetic . . . that you allowed it to go on for seven years," said board member Victoria Palacios.
