Jermel Manns - Repeat Sex Offender - Even His Own Family didn't know he was a Registered Sex Offender


A Cocoa youth pastor was supposed to be a role model, but he's been arrested for sexting a teenager instead. WFTV learned Friday that there's more to Jermel Manns than that one sex crime.

Manns is a convicted sex offender from Illinois who never registered locally, and he got a youth pastor job from his uncle.

If you look up Jermel Manns in the Illinois sex registry database, he comes up with a Jacksonville, Illinois address, and the Illinois sex offender registry lists him as compliant.
But for the past two years he was actually living in Brevard County under the name Jermel Beckford, or as his youth group at church called him, Pastor J.

Jermel Manns is no stranger to the criminal justice system. The 36-year-old was convicted of molesting a teenage boy in Illinois nearly a decade ago.

In 2008 he moved to Florida, took up a job as youth pastor at the Celebration Tabernacle Church in Cocoa and assumed the name Jermel Beckford.
Dressed in a suicide prevention gown, he appeared in Brevard County’s jail to answer to a new sex charge.
The senior pastor at the church, and Jermel's uncle, Errol Beckford, said he knew nothing of his past and was stunned to hear of his arrest.

“I says, what? Are you kidding me? He was a good pastor. He had 75 kids here. He built it up and they loved him," Beckford said.
MOST OFFENDERS KNOW THEIR VICTIM

SOMETIMES IT IS YOUR OWN NEPHEW
WHO HAPPENS TO BE A RSO
AND FAILED TO INFORM YOU


OR IT IS YOUR NEW BOYFRIEND
OR UNCLE
OR BROTHER
OR COUSIN
OR NEIGHBOR
OR CO-WORKER
OR FRIEND
OR PASTOR

Rockledge police say he developed a close relationship with a 16-year-old boy and started sending sexually explicit text messages. One message asked the teen to perform a sexual act.

A friend of the victim saw it and word got to police.
"At this point we do not know if there are any more victims, but we're pleading to the community if you think you've been victimized please come forward we need that information," said Cpl. Alice DiBiase-Deakins, Rockledge Police Department.
Errol Beckford said the church did not run a nationwide background check, but he says they will for Manns’ replacement.

"Whoever that person is we learn from this incident, doesn't matter who it is. It could be the Pope, we're going to run a national and pay for it," Beckford said.

Manns is being held on one count of soliciting a sexual act with a minor, but authorities say he could face more charges for failing to register as a sex offender in Florida and for not notifying authorities in Illinois.

"On average most sex offenders are never caught again for a new sex offense, after five years, between 10 and 15 percent of sex offenders are detected, often convicted, of committing a new sex offense. If you follow them for ten years the rates go up somewhat, if you follow them as long as we’ve been able to follow them, which is about 20 years, the rates go up to somewhere between 30 to 40 percent of the total sample will eventually be caught for a new sex offense."

Richard R. Gallatin - Repeat Sex Offender - Released Only 3 Months Before


A sex offender on parole is the suspect in the kidnapping and sexual assault of a teenage employee at the Gurnee Mills Outlet Mall earlier this month.

Richard R. Gallatin, 37, is charged in a warrant with four counts of aggravated criminal sexual assault, once count of aggravated kidnapping and one count of armed robbery, according to Gurnee Police Commander Jay Patrick.
Patrick says Gallatin was released on parole from a Wisconsin prison just three months ago. He was serving time for a previous sexual assault in that state.
Gallatin's last known address is 5402 75th Street in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin but he is known to frequent Kenosha, Wisconsin. Police say he also has contacts in the Chicago area, Indiana and Arizona.

The U.S. Marshals Service is working with Gurnee police to locate Gallatin. Police say he should be considered armed and dangerous and anyone who knows where he is should call police immediately.

The 19-year-old victim was kidnapped as she walked to her car in parking lot F at Gurnee Mills at 9:30 p.m. on June 6. She was forced to drive to an ATM machine and withdraw cash. She was then taken to a church parking lot in Kane County where she was sexually assaulted. Police say Gallatin then forced her to drive him to a 7-Eleven store in Forest Park where he got out of the car and let her go.

Gurnee police issued several surveillance photos of a suspect early on in the investigation in hopes someone could identify him and that's apparently what has happened.

As for the photos to the upper right, police say the one showing Gallatin with a shaved head was taken in 2009. The one in which he has had a full head of hair was taken in 2003. The surveillance photos show him with his hair growing out.

Charles Childress - Repeat Sex Offender - Gets Only 12 Years

A man who was on probation for a sex crime when he molested another child has been sentenced to 12 years in the Arizona Department of Corrections.

On Jan. 7, Charles Childress was charged with molestation of a child under 12 and dangerous crime against children charges. At the time Childress was on probation for a 2005 conviction for sexual abuse, court officials said.

Victims of both crimes were in the courtroom on June 17 and gave testimony to Navajo County Judge Thomas Wing. The latest victim’s mother had to have her statement read by another person because she was too emotional to read it herself, officials said.

Wing said Childress’ sentence was due in part to his prior felonies and sex offenses.

After his 12-year term, Childress will remain on intensive probation for a lifetime term and will be required to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, Wing said.

“Out of all the cases we prosecute, prosecution of homicides and crimes against children are our No. 1 priority,” Apache County Attorney Michael Whiting said in a news release. “I am happy with the sentence of 12 years, but wish it was 13. If we could have asked for more prison time we would have, but the law does not allow it.”

The victims declined to comment on the case.

Childress had waived his preliminary trial and accepted a plea. Apache County Attorneys Office Chief Deputy Martin Brannan said under state law Childress had been facing between a minimum of 7.5 and a maximum of 13 years in prison.

Leslie Johnson - Repeat Sex Offender - Pedophile

A convicted sex offender whose daughter discovered child pornography on his computers in 2008 was sentenced Tuesday to 30 years in prison.
Leslie Johnson, 59, was sitting in the Minnehaha County Jail in August 2008, on a federal charge of failure to register as a sex offender when his daughter found two laptop computers in his Chevy Suburban. When she turned on the computers, she saw photos and videos of boys and girls - in some cases as young as 3 - engaged in sexual acts. She turned her father in, and he was charged with 10 counts of possession of child pornography.
He returned to Lincoln County to face those charges after serving his 14-month federal sentence for failure to register.

In April, Lincoln County State's Attorney Tom Wollman dropped seven charges in exchange for guilty pleas on three.

At sentencing, defense lawyer Cynthia Berreau said her client was sexually abused, starting at age 3. A court-appointed psychologist noted that Johnson is aroused by children, but Berreau said Johnson never had acted on those urges.

"Statistically, we know that is a cyclical problem, but there are no allegations anywhere that Mr. Johnson has had contact with any children," Berreau said.

Berreau also talked about Johnson's medical conditions, saying that the maximum sentence would amount to a life sentence for her client.

Such a sentence is appropriate, however, Wollman said.

"These victims spend a lifetime wondering who's seen those images and videos," Wollman said.

Johnson's computer contained chat room conversations wherein he'd fantasized about raping young boys and girls, Wollman said. Johnson got the videos through chat rooms from other Internet users.

"Without individuals like Leslie Johnson asking for these images, I don't think anyone would be out there making them," he said.

Judge Stuart Tiede pointed to the psychologist's findings, saying that Johnson is "chronically antisocial," as well as prone to violence and impulsiveness.

"When one looks at all of the factors, I don't think you're very far from doing - as opposed to just watching," Tiede said.

Danny Fisher Jr. - Repeat Sex Offender - Gets 5 years instead of 50 for abuse of 5 year old

A convicted sex offender has pleaded guilty to two charges of sexual assault involving a 5-year-old girl.
Danny Fisher Jr., 46, of North Platte, faces up to 5 years in prison for each count when he is sentenced in July. He originally faced a Class 1 felony that carried up to 50 years in prison.
Fisher was arrested Nov. 26 after the victim's father reportedly observed Fisher pulling up the victim's overalls. The father became suspicious and contacted law enforcement who interviewed the victim and learned that Fisher had "touched her private parts" more than once, according to the initial report and confirmed by Fisher in open court on Monday.

Fisher was convicted in 1989 of first-degree sexual assault of a child and served a year.

Gerald Ignatowski - Repeat Sex Offender - Violent Predator


A man accused of holding a woman hostage at a Guilford home was taken into police custody after engaging officers in a standoff Tuesday morning, police said.

Police said an officer on patrol was approached by a distraught woman in North Guilford at about 2:30 a.m. The woman told the officer she had been threatened and held against her will by Gerald Ignatowski, 57. The woman said Ignatowski had been drinking heavily, threatened suicide and had a handgun.

The woman said Ignatowski eventually passed out and she was able to escape.

Officers went to the home where the woman said she had been held hostage, which they said was in a heavily populated condo complex. Members of the Branford Police Department as well as SWAT Team members from the Regional Emergency Response Team were also called to the area.

When officers entered the home, they said Ignatowski was not inside. He was later found on a wooded, rocky hillside near the home armed with a .32-caliber pistol.

Police said Ignatowski refused to drop his gun, and made a sudden motion, causing one of the officers to shoot him with a sponge ball. Ignatowski dropped the pistol and was taken into police custody. He was taken to Yale New Haven Hospital for treatment of minor injuries and a psychological evaluation.

Guilford police said Ignatowski will be charged with unlawful restraint, reckless endangerment, criminal attempt to commit aggravated sexual assault, criminal possession of a pistol, disorderly conduct, breach of peace and threatening. When released from the hospital, police said Ignatowski's bond will be set at $100,000.

Police said Ignatowski is a convicted felon and registered sex offender.

Brian Morris - Repeat Sex Offender - Church Chaperone?


A registered child sex offender is back in jail and accused of trying to have sex with a 14-year-old girl he met as a church chaperone.

Sheriff’s deputies in Washington County, Indiana arrested 30-year-old Brian Morris of Pekin, Indiana on Monday afternoon.

Morris is charged with attempted child solicitation.

Police say they got involved after Morris allegedly texted the girl inappropriately.

They say Morris then tried to set up a sexual encounter with the girl at a Washington County High School where he was arrested.

Calvin Marks - Repeat Sex Offender - Charged with raping girlfriend's child

Most offenders know their victim




A 44-year-old convicted sex offender was jailed in lieu of $1 million cash bail on charges he raped his live-in girlfriend’s child.

Calvin Marks was booked June 22 into the Washoe County Jail on four counts of sexual assault of a child under 14, assault with a deadly weapon and domestic violence. His bail as set at $1 million cash only.

Reno police Sgt. Gerald Rhodes said sex crimes detectives alleged that Marks abused the girl in a home in the 300 block of Taylor Street during the first three weeks of June.

Rhodes said that Marks is a Tier-2 convicted sex offender, which means he was assessed by authorities as having a “moderate” risk to commit more sex offenses. Records show that in 2001 he was convicted in Las Vegas for attempted sexual assault with a deadly weapon.

Marks also goes by the aliases Calvin Colums and Mark Collins.

Wayde E. Ephraim - Repeat Sex Offender - This is Prevention


A Caldwell man was arrested for enticement of a child over the internet Friday.
During an investigation into online enticement, Ada County detectives chatted with a man later identified as Wayde E. Ephraim, 40, of Caldwell. Ephraim believed he was talking with a 14-year-old female and arranged to meet the teen for sex.
A warrant was issued for Ephraim’s arrest based on the information gathered during the investigation, and police served that warrant Friday at Ephraim's home in the 300 block of North Michigan in Caldwell.

Ephraim was taken into custody and booked into the Canyon County Jail on a $250,000 felony warrant for enticement of a minor over the internet.

Ephraim is a Registered Sex Offender in Idaho. The Idaho State Police Central Sex Offender Registry shows Ephraim was convicted of Lewd Conduct with a Minor Child under 16 in 1988 in Valley County.

This case is one of the ongoing investigations conducted by Ada County Sheriff's detectives working as part of the Idaho Attorney General's Office Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.

Dennis Malone - Repeat Sex Offender - Multiple Victim Pedophile


Dennis Malone, the man who was caught with an underage girl at his Detroit home earlier this week, has a track record for abusing children, according to authorities.
Malone is a convicted sex offender who served several years in prison for molesting at least seven girls under the age of 13. He was released in 2004.

Michigan State Police Trooper Craig Tuer said Malone is suspected of molesting additional girls, including a 12-year-old who filed a report.
Malone, 54, was arrested on Wednesday after police found him with a 15-year-old runaway girl inside a home on Detroit's east side. He reportedly brandished a gun during a stand-off with police, and the victim escaped the house by jumping out of a window.

The girl's father told Fox that Malone seems to have turned the teenager against him. "He messed her head up, and so (she's) going to need real help. She's mad at me for what happened."

Edward Lee Higgins - Repeat Sex Offender - 18 Years Later


Edward Lee Higgins, a local businessman charged with sexually assaulting a former employee at her home in February was dishonorably discharged from the U.S. Air Force in the early 1990s and sentenced to a military prison for a felony sex crime, according to police and court records.

Higgins, 46, of 8520 Durham, Whitehall, was arraigned Tuesday in Muskegon County’s 60th District Court on one count of fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct, a felony, in connection with an alleged Feb. 27 assault of a Montague woman.

The judge also arraigned Higgins as an habitual offender, stemming from a Dec. 10, 1992, conviction by the United States Air Force Military Tribunal of Indecent Acts, according to a court document.

Montague Police Chief Robert Rought — whose department handled the recent complaint — said the habitual offender charge stems from when Higgins was a U.S. Air Force recruiter.
Higgins was charged after several women with whom he was in contact as a recruiter alleged that he sexually assaulted them, Rought said.
As a result of those allegations, Higgins was convicted of a felony, dishonorably discharged and sentenced to four years at the United States Disciplinary Barracks at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, according to a police report.

It isn’t clear how much time Higgins served at the prison. The Chronicle has sent a Freedom of Information Act request to the Air Force to obtain additional information.
In the more recent incident, police said Higgins sexually assaulted a 34-year-old mother and wife at her home while her husband and children were away.
Higgins — who owns multiple businesses in Muskegon County, including several towing companies — declined to comment for this story.
The woman told The Chronicle that Higgins stopped by her home uninvited and when she opened her front door, he walked in, closed the door and began groping her.

The woman said she asked him to leave, but he refused.

According to the police report, he exposed himself, chased the woman around the inside of her home, pulled her pants down and tried to sexually assault her.

The woman said she struggled to get him off her and the attack ended after a neighbor — who witnessed the incident through a window — walked toward her home to see what was going on.
At that point, Higgins abruptly got in his truck and left, according to the police report.

Meanwhile, the woman says she fears Higgins has victimized others. Both she and Rought urge anyone who may have been sexually assaulted by Higgins to call Montague Police at 893-0810.

Higgins has hired Muskegon attorney Terry Nolan, who said last week that his client and the victim had an "ongoing relationship" and the Feb. 27 incident was the result of a "misunderstanding."

The victim denies there was ever a "relationship."

A preliminary examination for Higgins is scheduled for July 2.

Michael Schuttpelz - Repeat Sex Offender - Child Predator on Wheels


A federal judge sentenced a child predator to 38 years in prison.

Michael Schuttpelz, 51, a Nebraska truck driver, was caught in a 2007 Internet sting operation in which an FBI agent posed as a mother of two girls ages 5 and 3.

"Virtually immediately, Schuttpelz began discussing plans to travel to Detroit to have sex with the two girls," prosecutors said in a memorandum asking for a 50-year sentence for Schuttpelz.
A federal jury in Detroit convicted Schuttpelz of crossing state lines to have sex with a child younger than 12, transporting child pornography, and possessing child pornography.

Schuttpelz, 51, also has a 1997 conviction in Iowa for molesting a 13-year-old girl.
Schuttpelz, who shouted profanities at prosecutors during a June 14 hearing and violently banged his head against a table at an earlier hearing, spoke for more than five hours over two days, railing about his failed relationships with women, his professed innocence and his theories about class in America.

U.S. District Judge Paul D. Borman initially allowed Schuttpelz to speak without his handcuffs, but U.S. marshals restrained him with wrist and leg shackles part way through Monday's hearing after he began to shout and bang his hands against the lectern.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Kevin Mulcahy asked for a 50-year sentence for Schuttpelz, describing him as "a rolling sex predator looking for victims all over this country."

Only by keeping him locked up until he is very old can the children of the country be protected, said Mulcahy, who said Schuttpelz is a paranoid and narcissistic offender with the intelligence to manipulate people to get access to children.

"This has been the Michael Schuttpelz show," Mulcahy said of the sentencing hearing.
"As we've heard over the last two days, anything negative that happened in his life cannot possibly be his fault."
Schuttpelz said he was troubled and lonely when he engaged in the Internet chats and made the trip to Michigan, where he was arrested.

"The man before you today is in no way a pedophile or child molester," he said.

The charges carried a 30-year mandatory minimum sentence.

John E. Scott - Repeat Sex Offender - CHILD PREDATOR


A city man who is a registered sex offender and who spent 25 years in prison for raping a boy is in trouble again for reportedly committing another sex crime involving a teenage boy.

John E. Scott, 44, of Millet Avenue, appeared Tuesday before Judge Robert A. Douglas of Youngstown Municipal Court for arraignment on a felony charge of importuning.

There are three sections of the importuning law. According to police reports, Scott is charged with soliciting a person of the same sex to engage in sexual activity.

Scott did not enter a plea to the felony charge and asked the court to supply a court-funded attorney to represent him in the matter. Judge Douglas set bond at $70,000. Scott is in Mahoning County jail.

According to police reports, Scott became the subject of a police investigation after a 13-year-old West Side boy told a friend’s parents that Scott had exposed himself to the boy.

The boy told police he first became aware of Scott two weeks ago while playing basketball with a friend with no shirt on. The boy said he noticed Scott staring in their direction as they played the game.

According to police, the boy said Scott eventually walked over and offered him $1, then asked if the boy would return to his house later that evening. The boy told police he did not go to Scott’s house that evening, but was approached by Scott a few days ago when visiting the same friend.

The boy said Scott gave him another $1 and asked the youngster to come to the back of his home saying, “Take your shirt off, and show me your body.”

The boy told police Scott eventually lured him to the rear of the house, lifted his own shorts and exposed his genitals. The boy then told an adult, who in turn contacted police.

According to reports, Scott was released from prison last year after serving 25 years in prison for the rape of a 7-year-old boy. The report says he was arrested on the crime in 1984 in Cleveland.

The Mahoning County sheriff’s office website lists Scott as a sex offender living at the Millet Avenue address. His picture is displayed along with the details of six other sexual offenders living in a half-mile radius of the Millet Avenue address.

Peter Frank Gregorich - Repeat Sex Offender - Stole Laptops to Download Child Pornography


A registered sex offender accused of stealing laptops from a local company and accessing child pornography has been arrested, court records show.

Peter Frank Gregorich, 48, has been charged with theft, a state jail felony. He is in the Travis County Jail on $10,000 bail, records show.

Two laptops were reported stolen May 10 from public-relations firm Porter Novelli after they were placed in front of a FedEx drop box to be delivered to Boston but never made it to their destination, an arrest affidavit said.
Detectives were able to track the computers to Gregorich using anti-theft software call “Lojack for Laptops” that has a function that can track keystrokes, the affidavit said. The user typed his birth date, e-mail address and phone number and used his Social Security number as a password for a wireless network, the affidavit said. Gregorich searched for child pornography while he was in possession of the laptops, it said.
Gregorich was previously convicted of indecency with a child by exposure in Montgomery County in 2002, records show.

Corie Nathaniel Robbins - Repeat Sex Offender - Got Lenient Sentence then Did it again


A Northumberland County judge will likely not be as generous when a convicted sex offender stands before him again, this time for resentencing on sex charges dating to 2007.
It was in 2008 when Judge Charles H. Saylor first sentenced Corie Nathaniel Robbins, then 18, on charges of indecent exposure and trying to lure a child into a motor vehicle for exposing himself to a 10-year-old girl as he tried to get her into his car near Sunbury's St. Monica School.
Robbins' age and the fact that he had no prior convictions led to Saylor's sentence of nine to 23 1/2 months in the Northumberland County Prison, followed by a consecutive five years of probation and treatment in a sex offender program.

Saylor said Wednesday that Robbins' resentencing could lead to nearly 5 years in state prison. It would be up to the judges involved whether that term would run concurrent or consecutive to Robbins' potential sentence in Union County.

"When somebody re-offends after being given a certain opportunity, they're not going to get the same opportunity again," Saylor said. "At some point, we make a determination that there isn't too much that can be done anymore at the county level."
Robbins was released from prison in April 2008 after serving the minimum nine months of his sentence, and last week, he allegedly committed a crime in Union County that officials said is similar to the one he admitted to in Northumberland County. Robbins stands accused of attempting to lure a 9-year-old girl into the men's bathroom at the Wal-Mart store, north of Lewisburg in Kelly Township, with a promise of $5.
The girl ran away, and Robbins now faces felony counts of unlawful contact with a minor and criminal contempt to interfere with the custody of children and misdemeanor counts of criminal attempt to commit indecent assault and criminal attempt to commit indecent exposure.

Saylor said he recognized Robbins, now 21, when he saw his picture on the front page of The Daily Item on Wednesday.
"My reaction was disappointment," Saylor said. "We're always hopeful when we require that someone receive treatment that the treatment is successful and they do not re-offend. We hope to give an individual that opportunity to not engage in that behavior anymore."
Robbins' next court appearance is set for July 1 in front of District Judge Leo S. Armbruster, Lewisburg.

Alphonzo Hill - Repeat Sex Offender - Internet Predator


Deputies said a registered sex offender has been arrested again, accused of having sex with a teenage girl and fathering her child.

Investigators said they have enough evidence to put the 34-year-old back in prison for his second sex-related crime against a child.

Alphonzo Hill, pleaded guilty in 2000 to charges of corrupting a minor. He spent time in prison and then as a registered sex offender.

Sgt. Christopher Clark said, “Can I say I’m surprised? No. But, it is disturbing.”

Clark said it is crimes against children that really affect the people in his office.

Deputies said they received a report last fall that Hill, of Dayton, was having a relationship with a teen.

Clark said, “The report indicated the 15-year-old and 34-year-old had sexual intercourse and she became pregnant with his baby.”

Deputies investigated and learned that the two met on the website MocoSpace and began a short relationship.

“We confirmed through the juvenile that they did meet on the web and had sexual intercourse,” Clark said.

Investigators said they believe the two met several times at a Springfield apartment complex. They believe that Hill is the father of teen’s child with DNA tests pending.

Authorities said they do all they can, but can’t police the entire World Wide Web.

Clark said, “Unfortunately, we are seeing more of it because of access to social websites make it so easy for predators to go after young children.”

In convicted, Hill faces up to five years in prison the unlawful sexual conduct charge.

Curtis Regulus - Repeat Sex Offender - "I will find you"


A 38-year-old convicted sex offender was arrested Thursday morning for allegedly rubbing his crotch against a 14-year-old girl on a bus in Anaheim.

Curtis Regulus was taken into custody at 5:45 a.m. near Newport Boulevard and 17th Street in Costa Mesa, Jim Amormino of the Orange County Sheriff's Department said.

Amormino, who said one particularly helpful tip came from a bus driver, thanked the media for publicizing the case and helping "get another child molester off the street."

Regulus is charged with two counts of lewd act upon a child, according to court records. He pleaded guilty March 18 to touching an intimate part of another person and was sentenced to 180 days in jail, according to court records.

Regulus, who was freed from jail June 11, pushed his crotch against the girl as she tried to get off an Orange County Transportation Authority bus at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, Amormino said.

Around 3:30 p.m. June 19, Regulus followed a 14-year-old girl around on an Orange County Transportation Authority bus as she tried to move away from him, Amormino said.

The girl moved to the front of the bus to be near the driver, and Regulus followed her there, he said.
As she waited to exit the bus at Orangethorpe Avenue and Harbor Boulevard in Fullerton, Regulus came up behind her and pushed up against her, Amormino said. Despite her attempts to escape him, the suspect followed her off the bus, pushed up against her again and pulled her toward him by the arm, Amormino said.
The girl managed to break away and ran across the street.

Regulus allegedly shouted, "I will find you" as she ran away.

Steven Brian Blackston - Repeat Sex Offender - Doesn't Know When to Stop


A registered sex offender from Taylors is facing new allegations that he had sex with a 15-year-old boy, authorities said.

Steven Brian Blackston, 38, is charged in a warrant with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor in connection with a recent incident in Wellford. He is being held at the Spartanburg County jail, records show.

Blackston is identified in the warrant as a registered sex offender who had previously been convicted of second-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

A 15-year-old boy told a Wellford investigator a sexual act happened inside a man’s vehicle while it was parked on Peterson Drive in Wellford about 12:30 a.m. on June 18, an officer wrote in an incident report.

The teen’s mother had earlier reported him as a runaway, who had gone out of his window and left in a Honda Civic, the officer wrote.

The teen’s stepfather told police that he later found the teen inside a vehicle with a man at a store at Fort Prince Boulevard and Mustang Drag Road, the officer wrote.

The stepfather said the man wasn’t wearing any clothes, and the teen was wearing only gym shorts and socks, the officer wrote.

A warrant lists Blackston’s address as being on Ginger Lane, while an incident report and booking report says he lives on Weehawken Circle. Both addresses are in Taylors.

Charles Fernandez - Repeat Sex Offender - BabyRaper

A registered sex offender who was set to start trial this week in Santa Maria on new molestation charges is facing 16 years in prison after pleading no contest to one felony count of continuous sexual abuse of a child.

Charles Fernandez, 44, of Ridgecrest entered the plea — which has the same effect as a guilty plea in terms of sentencing — last month.

He will return to court July 15 for sentencing, said Chief Trial Deputy Stephen Foley.

Fernandez must serve 85 percent of his sentence before he is eligible for parole, Foley said.

Fernandez was charged with three counts of aggravated sexual assault, but two of the counts will be dismissed at his sentencing, under the plea agreement he entered into.

He was scheduled to begin trial earlier this week.

“Based on the facts of the case, and the desire of the victims, we felt it was a fair resolution and brought closure to the case,” Foley said.
According to earlier testimony for the prosecution in the case, Fernandez molested the son of a woman he dated from the time the boy was 7 and in the second grade until almost the end of the child’s fourth-grade year.
The victim is now 17 and living out of state, Foley said.

The abuse stopped, according to testimony in the case, when the boy’s mother ended her relationship with Fernandez.

She told authorities about the abuse in July 2007, shortly after her son told her about the molestation.
In 2005, Fernandez was convicted of sexually assaulting a different child, and was ordered to register as a sex offender in Kern County, according to the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Department.
Because of Fernandez’s history of committing sexual offenses, he could be deemed a “sexually violent predator” around the time of his prison release date, Foley said.

If the court or a jury determines that Fernandez is a sexually violent predator, he will be housed at a mental-health facility until he is deemed no longer at risk of reoffending.

Fernandez’s attorney, Senior Deputy Public Defender Robert Ikola, could not be reached for comment.

Bruce Nelson - Repeat Sex Offender - Reoffended After Only 2 Months

A convicted sex offender told to stay away from schools and children less than two months ago was arrested Tuesday after allegedly exposing himself to two teenage girls.

Bruce Nelson, 49, of Pinawa was arrested after two girls in their early teens complained a man flashed them in the town about 120 kilometres north-east from Winnipeg.
Nelson pleaded guilty in April to possessing child pornography and indecent exposure after sending explicit photos of nude children to strangers over the Internet, and flashing a five-year-old and nine-year-old in Pinawa in 2008.

He was given eight months time served and was under probation when he was arrested this week.
Mounties from the Lac de Bonnet detachment arrested Nelson Tuesday within 30 minutes of the alleged indecent exposure incident.

He was arrested close to an area school, said police.

James Ford - Repeat Sex Offender - Refuses to comply

Since 1993, he's been arrested more than two dozen times in Louisville.

Back in 2003, police say he sexually abused three young girls, who were 9-years-old, 10-years-old and 11-years-old at the time.



The man accused of trying to lure teen boys by offering them jobs is now charged with not complying with the sex offender registry.

James Ford was arrested on Sunday for the charge.

Police say he had not updated his address on the registry.

The New Albany man has been arrested more than 20 times in the past.

Last year he was arrested after police say he tried to lure teen boys with jobs at Waffle House.

Jon Venables - Repeat Sex Offender - Convicted of Murder at the age of 10

Venables and Thompson were released from juvenile detention in 2001, when they were 18, and given new identities


British prosecutors said Monday that a man convicted of murdering a toddler in 1993, when he himself was just 10 years old, has been charged with child pornography offenses.
Jon Venables, 27, has been charged with downloading and distributing indecent photographs of children. Venables was indicted earlier, but the charges could only be reported Monday after a judge ordered some reporting restrictions lifted.
Prosecution lawyer Gavin Millar read the charges out for the record at London's Central Criminal Court. He said Venables is accused of downloading onto his computer 57 indecent photographs of minors between February 2009 and February this year, and of distributing seven indecent images of children over the Internet between Feb. 1 and 23 this year.
Venables and another 10-year-old, Robert Thompson, lured 2-year-old James Bulger away from a shopping center in Liverpool in 1993 and beat him to death by an isolated railway line.
The crime shocked Britain because of the ages of the victim and his baby-faced killers, and was seared into the national memory through closed-circuit video footage of the two older boys leading the toddler away to his death.
Venables and Thompson were released from juvenile detention in 2001, when they were 18, and given new identities, which the press is barred from revealing — a rare and highly controversial move.
The case continues to arouse strong feelings. While some applauded the decision to release the young killers and hailed their apparently successful rehabilitation, others, including Bulger's parents, argued they should never have been freed.

Venables was taken back into custody in February for violating his parole conditions. Officials then would not give details of his alleged offense, saying it could prejudice any future trial.

Venables is due to attend a court hearing July 23, when he will appear by video link from prison.

Neal Assad Sabra - Repeat Sex Offender - Pervert Sex Therapist


A sex addict therapist was sentenced Friday to 22 years in federal prison for being a repeat child pornography offender and illegally possessing a firearm.

Neal Assad Sabra, 45, pleaded for leniency before U.S. District Judge Rebecca Beach Smith. Smith sentenced Sabra according to federally recommended guidelines.

Sabra was arrested earlier this year after he e-mailed several child pornography images to an undercover officer. On Jan. 21, agents searched his Chesapeake home and workplace and seized computers that had more than 300 images and more than 50 videos of child pornography.
This is the second child pornography conviction for Sabra. In 2006, he was convicted in a military court for having child pornography and sentenced to 40 months in prison with all but 18 months suspended.

At the time of his arrest in the current case, Sabra was employed at a local nonprofit organization where he ran group therapy for sex addicts.

Bruce A. Perry - Repeat Sex Offender - The Pedophile who couldn't help himself

Perry was convicted of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl in 1988
He told police he committed the sexual assaults to relieve stress, adding that he is a diagnosed pedophile and can’t help himself.


A Sheboygan sex offender who repeatedly molested two girls — one of them dating back to 2004 — will be sentenced today on charges that could put him behind bars for 50 years.

Bruce A. Perry, 53, of 1625 Knollcrest Drive, was convicted of two counts of repeated sexual assault of a child after pleading no contest as part of an agreement eliminating the possibility of a life sentence.

He is scheduled for sentencing at 2:30 p.m. before Judge Gary Langhoff.

Perry was convicted of sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl in 1988, so both of the charges were originally filed in January with an enhancer that mandated a life prison term under the state’s two strikes law for child sex offenses. But the charge was amended to remove the enhancer May 10 when Perry entered no contest pleas to both counts, court records show.

Perry has been in jail since his arrest on a $100,000 cash bond.
A criminal complaint said Perry sexually assaulted a now-18-year-old girl starting in 2004 and a now-14-year-old girl starting in March 2008. The assaults continued until Perry’s arrest in January.

The younger girl said Perry repeatedly forced her to strip, then stood and watched or made her sit on his lap, the complaint said. Perry admitted to those incidents and said he also touched the girl inappropriately beneath her clothes numerous times.

The older girl said Perry touched her inappropriately every week for about five years, but she kept quiet out of fear.

The investigation began in January when police received a report from a children’s organization where a worker had learned of the younger girl’s sexual assaults.
Perry has also confessed to molesting another girl who is now in her 20s, but no charges have been filed related to her. He told police he committed the sexual assaults to relieve stress, adding that he is a diagnosed pedophile and can’t help himself.

Perry’s prior offense, which involved a stepdaughter from a prior marriage, resulted in a year in jail and 10 years probation.

Daniel D. Crombleholme - Repeat Sex Offender - Raped Wife of Sex Offender


A Blountville judge on Monday ordered a psychological evaluation for a convicted sex offender accused of raping a fellow sex offender's wife while sharing their Bristol home.

According to court records, Bristol police allege Marc Brouillette, 32, 967 Barker St., Bristol, Tenn., willingly opened his home - which included a child - to convicted child sex offender Daniel D. Crombleholme, 32, even though he knew Crombleholme wasn’t supposed to be living in a residence with a minor.

On Dec. 10, 2009, Brouillette’s wife reported to police that Crombleholme raped her while her husband was at work.

She said she was screaming and trying to fight Crombleholme off, but he told her he had a knife in his pocket and that he would hurt her child when the child got home from school if she didn’t quiet down.

At some point, Crombleholme allegedly stopped the attack because he “knew he was going to jail” and “called the victim’s husband” and told him what had happened.

Crombleholme was subsequently indicted on aggravated rape and a violation of the sex offender registry act.

In addition to announcing a motion for Crombleholme to be evaluated, his court-appointed defense attorney, Ricky Curtis, also asked the judge to sever Crombleholmes charges into two separate cases.

According to prosecuting attorney William Harper, the judge agreed to sever the two charges because the offenses were unrelated.

For allowing Crombleholme to live with his family, Brouillette has been indicted on a charge of facilitation of a violation of the sex offender registry. He has also been indicted for a separate violation alleging he failed to report an employment change in a timely manner.

Brouillette



The alleged violation was discovered when police learned where he was working when his wife’s alleged rape was reported on Dec. 10, 2009. He had been working at a gas station in Bristol since September 2009 and hadn’t reported the change to police.

Court records describe Crombleholme and Brouillette as friends who had been convicted of their respective sex offenses in Massachusetts. Brouillette reportedly moved to Bristol in March 2008, and Crombleholme reported having moved into Brouillette’s home in August 2009.

Brouillette's case is next in court on July 1.

Timothy Temple - Repeat Sex Offender - Caught in the Act

He is a convicted sex offender with a criminal history that goes back more than 15 years. In 1993, he was convicted of attempted sexual battery. He was also convicted of stalking in 2006 and again in 2008.
Metro police said they believe Timothy Temple, a convicted sex offender, is responsible for peering into homes in west Nashville.

"It's shocking, to be honest with you," said Cory McClain.

McClain and his wife moved to their Westlawn Drive home a year ago for its charm, he said.

"It's a really friendly neighborhood," he said. "Everyone's running, biking or walking their dogs. It's just been tremendous."

Jennifer Hannah moved to the area a month ago for the same reasons.

"We just like the neighborhood," she said. "My husband lived down the street off Wyoming for awhile. It just seemed like a safe neighborhood."

Safety came into question for Hannah and McClain with recent news of a peeping tom.

According to Metro police, several homes along Westlawn Drive, 18th Ave South and Hillsboro Pike have been victim to an unwanted guest for nearly a month. Several women reported seeing a man looking into bedroom and bathroom windows late at night or early in the morning. In some cases, he left notes for the victims telling them what he saw.

On Friday morning, undercover Metro Detective Charles Taylor caught Temple looking into a window on 18th Avenue South just after midnight. Police aren't releasing his picture because of the ongoing investigation, but Temple is no stranger to the law.

He is a convicted sex offender with a criminal history that goes back more than 15 years. In 1993, he was convicted of attempted sexual battery. He was also convicted of stalking in 2006 and again in 2008.

Temple refused to talk to police Friday but was arrested on charges of trespassing and driving on a revoked license. More criminal charges are possible pending the outcome of the investigation, police said.

Jose Zamora - Repeat Sex Offender



A sex offender married to a local school board member pleaded guilty Thursday to molesting a teen.

Shiara Davila-Morales, spokeswoman for the District Attorney's Office, said Jose Zamora of Santa Fe Springs faces a maximum of three years in prison at his July 16 sentencing in Whittier Superior Court.

She said he pleaded guilty to child molesting with a prior conviction.

A second charge of lewd acts upon a child is expected to be dismissed by the judge at Zamora's sentencing, Davila-Morales said.

Zamora was facing a maximum of three years and eight months in prison if convicted of the two felony charges.

He was accused of molesting two teens; one was 16 when the incident happened Dec. 28, 2009 while the other girl was 14 when he allegedly committed a lewd act upon her on or between Jan. 1, 2003 and Dec. 31, 2004.

Zamora is married to Hilda Zamora, a trustee for the Little Lake City School District. She didn't return calls seeking comment on Friday.

His attorney, Douglas Miranda, didn't reply to an e-mail or return a phone call.

Authorities didn't say how Zamora met the two teens, where the incidents happened and how police found out.

Davila-Morales said the victim wasn't a student and the molestation didn't happen at a school in the district.

"The DA's Office is not providing information that would identify any of the victims in this traumatic case. Our position is to protect the victims in these very traumatic cases who have suffered enough," she said.
Zamora was already a registered sex offender when he was arrested on the new charges. He is listed in the California Megan's Law database of sex offenders for a 2006 case where the victim was a 13-year-old girl.
He pleaded no contest on Jan. 4, 2006 to a misdemeanor count of annoying a child and was sentenced to three years' probation and 312 hours of community service, according to Jane Robison, another spokeswoman for the District Attorney's Office.

Court records show a charge of lewd acts on a child was dismissed at the same time.

He's been in custody since Whittier police arrested him April 20 at the Police Services Center, 11576 Telegraph Road in Santa Fe Springs. He is being held at Men's Central Jail in lieu of $170,000 bail.

"25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years"

"On average most sex offenders are never caught again for a new sex offense, after five years, between 10 and 15 percent of sex offenders are detected, often convicted, of committing a new sex offense. If you follow them for ten years the rates go up somewhat, if you follow them as long as we’ve been able to follow them, which is about 20 years, the rates go up to somewhere between 30 to 40 percent of the total sample will eventually be caught for a new sex offense."
