Assistant U.S. attorney John D.R. Atchison who was accused of traveling to Detroit, MI to have sex with a 5 year old has committed suicide in federal prison. It appears that Atchison has done the tax payer a favor and cut to the chase. There will be no need for a trial as this sex case ends in a suicide. He had earlier requested to be taken off suicide watch. A rather interesting call by the judge.
Assistant U.S. attorney John D.R. Atchison was found unresponsive and taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead, Federal Bureau of Prisons spokeswoman Felicia Ponce said.
Atchison, of Gulf Breeze, Fla., had been held in a special housing unit in the prison at Milan, about 36 miles southwest of Detroit. Atchison had a cell to himself, Ponce said.
An investigation into his death was under way, she said.
Atchison had been charged with three felonies, the most serious of which was crossing state lines with intent to have sex with someone under 12. A conviction had carried a minimum of 30 years in prison. He was arrested Sept. 16. (Kansas City Star)
Atchison had attempted to hang himself with a bedsheet last month in a Sanilac county jail, but another inmate alerted guards who stopped the suicide attempt. He later was taken by U.S. Marshals to the Milan prison.
Three days before that suicide attempt, Atchison had assured a judge he would not harm himself.
Good riddance to bad rubbage as Atchison’s Myspace page said he enjoyed spoiling young girls.
Under the user name fldaddy04, name John and caption “Experienced, understanding Daddy,” Atchison allegedly described himself in his MySpace profile as: “Handsome, educated, professional, experienced Daddy. I love younger girls. Like everything about you…how you think, talk, act. I’m very understanding and supportive…never ever judgmental.”
The profile goes on to say that he would like to “pamper, spoil, change and take care of” girls.
