Robert L. Ranson, Early-Release Felon Charged with Kidnapping, Rape, Torture of a 16 Year Old Girl in South Los Angeles, CA
Non-violent Offender, eh? With these felons, it’s not a matter of if they will escalate, but when!
30 year old Robert L. Ranson, an early release felon, has been charged with the kidnapping, rape and torture of a 16 year old girl in South Los Angeles, California. Ranson was on probation as a “non-violent offender” under California’s prison realignment program when he decided to escalate his crimes. This thug is also a suspect in 3 other recent murders. So much for the non-violent offender. Ranson had previously served time for two carjackings and an assault with a firearm. Since when is the use if a firearm in a commission of a crime considered non-violent? How nuts are they in California to be releasing a danger like this to the public?
So this is how the liberals in charge in California protect the public? Take the guns away from law-abiding citizens and let felons out of prison early who are far from “non-violent”. BRILLIANT!

A man on probation as a “non-violent offender” under California’s prison realignment program has been charged with kidnapping, raping, and torturing a 16-year-old girl in South Los Angeles, and detectives suspect he may be connected to three other recent murders.
Robert L. Ranson, 30, was arrested in late March after the girl escaped from a U-Haul van in an alley near Imperial Highway and New Hampshire Ave., according to police and booking records.
The girl was covered in gasoline and said her attacker, later identified as Ranson, had tied her hands and taped her mouth, and was trying to light her on fire when she ran away, naked.
Ranson was tracked by detectives and arrested March 27th. He was booked on a 10-day probation violation, known as a “flash incarceration,” while the case was investigated.
Prosecutors charged Ranson for the teenager’s kidnapping April 3. An alleged accomplice, Julian Tobar, was charged with robbing the girl.

JUSTICE … Neighborhood bully finally got what was coming to him.
Municipal Court Judge Gayle Williams-Byers ordered 62-year old Edmond Aviv to display the sign for five hours Sunday that said, “I AM A BULLY!” The order comes in response to the neighborhood jerk harassing and bullying. According to court records, Aviv has feuded with his neighbor Sandra Prugh for the past 15 years. According to court records, Prugh stated in a letter to the court that Aviv had called her an ethnic slur, [monkey momma], while she was holding her adopted black children, who have developmental disabilities, cerebral palsy and epilepsy, spit on her several times, regularly threw dog feces on her son’s car windshield, and once smeared feces on a wheelchair ramp. However, the most recent case stemmed from Aviv being annoyed at the smell coming from Prugh’s dryer vent when she did laundry, in retaliation, Aviv hooked up kerosene to a fan, which blew the smell onto Pugh’s property. The judge also ordered Aviv to serve 15 days in jail and to undergo anger management classes and counseling. Aviv also had to submit an apology letter to Prugh.
A man accused of harassing a neighbor and her disabled children for the past 15 years sat at a street corner Sunday morning with a sign declaring he’s a bully, a requirement of his sentence.
Municipal Court Judge Gayle Williams-Byers ordered 62-year-old Edmond Aviv to display the sign for five hours Sunday. It says: “I AM A BULLY! I pick on children that are disabled, and I am intolerant of those that are different from myself. My actions do not reflect an appreciation for the diverse South Euclid community that I live in.”
The Northeast Ohio Media Group reported that Aviv arrived at the corner just before 9 a.m., placing the hand-lettered cardboard sign next to him as he sat in a chair. Within a couple of minutes, a passing motorist honked a car horn.
Court records show Aviv pleaded no contest in February to a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. His attorney didn’t return a telephone call for comment.

Judge Jan Jurden Sentences du Pont Heir, Robert H. Richards IV, Probation for Raping His 3 Year Old Daughter Because ‘He Would Not Fare Well’ in Prison
WTF … who cares whether this child rapist would fare well in prison or not!!! How could anyone call this Justice?
Judge Jan Jurden, a Superior Court judge needs to be thrown off the bench after her insane sentencing decision for a child rapist. Judge Jurdan unbelievably sentenced Robert H. Richards IV to probation for the rape and molestation of his then 3 year old daughter stating, he “will not fare well” in prison. WHAT!!! Prison is not meant to be nice, it is meant to be a punishment and to keep predators away from society. However, this misguided judge actually said that prison life would adversely affect Richards. What about the adverse affect that his daughter faces thanks to his rape? So what was the “unique circumstances” that the judge made her decision, his wealth?
Robert H. Richards IV
A Superior Court judge who sentenced an heir to the du Pont fortune to probation for raping his 3-year-old daughter wrote in her order that he “will not fare well” in prison and suggested that he needed treatment instead of time behind bars, according to Delaware Online.
Court records show that in Judge Jan Jurden’s sentencing order for Robert H. Richards IV she considered unique circumstances when deciding his punishment for fourth-degree rape. Her observation that prison life would adversely affect Richards confused several criminal justice authorities in Delaware, who said that her view that treatment was a better idea than prison is typically used when sentencing drug addicts, not child rapists.
Jurden gave Richards, who had no previous criminal record, an eight-year prison term, but suspended all the prison time for probation.
According to the following site, Judge Jurden’s present term ends May 29, 2013. Not soon enough!!!
UPDATE I: Judge said du Pont heir ‘will not fare well’ in prison.
O’Neill said he and his deputies have often argued that a defendant was too ill or frail for prison, but he has never seen a judge cite it as a “reason not to send someone to jail.”
Richards was no frail defendant, court records show, listing him at 6 feet, 4 inches tall and between 250 and 276 pounds. Nor do court records cite any physical illnesses.
O’Neill said the way the Richards case was handled might cause the public to be skeptical about “how a person with great wealth may be treated by the system.”
Jurden, who has been a judge since 2001, and Superior Court President James T. Vaughn Jr. did not respond to questions last week about the case.
A du Pont family heir who raped his 3-year-old daughter nearly a decade ago but received no prison time now faces a lawsuit from his former wife that accuses him of sexually abusing his toddler son.
Robert H. Richards IV, 47, who is supported by a trust fund and who paid $1.8 million for his 5,800-square-foot mansion near Winterthur Museum, pleaded guilty in 2008 to fourth-degree rape of his daughter. Currently on probation, he has never been charged with crimes against his son.
67 Year Old Hans Loudermilk Arrested on Federal Charges after Perv Sexually Groped & Propositioned 15 Year Old Girl on Delta Flight
SNAKES PERV ON A PLANE …
67 year old Hans Loudermilk has been arrested and charged with two felony counts of sexual abuse of a minor on an aircraft after the California man sexually groped and propositioned a 15 year old girl seated next to him on a Delta Air Lines flight from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City, Utah. Dude, really you’re 52 years older than this girl, EEEK!!!
From The Smoking Gun:
According to an FBI affidavit, Hans Loudermilk and the victim were traveling from Los Angeles to Salt Lake City, Utah, a 90-minute flight. After boarding the plane, Loudermilk stood in the aisle and asked the girl if she would move to the middle seat in their row. The teen, identified as “KD” in the affidavit, complied with Loudermilk’s request, reported FBI Agent Daniel Horan.
Following departure, the pair engaged in conversation that “started off just social, however turned sexual in nature,” Horan stated.
About 25 minutes before landing, Loudermilk (seen at right) allegedly told “KD” that he could “teach her things sexually that boys her age could not.” He added that she “should drive with him and that in the State of Utah he could marry her at her current age.”

Authorities from Williamson, Rutherford and Maury counties helped with the search along with the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency.
“We’re using people trained in the specific type of search because it’s a limited area,” Puckett said.
During the course of the investigation, agents became aware of an incident in the family’s home, just before Christopher’s disappearance, that led agents to arrest and charge Smithburg, 52, with one count of aggravated child abuse and aggravated child neglect or endangerment.
