32 Year Old Chicago Man (Judex Colon) Sexually Assaults 4 Year Old Girl on Bus After Just Having Registered as a Sex Offender
THIS IS THE REASON WHY YOU SHOULD LOCK THE DOOR AND THROW AWAY THE KEY WITH SEX OFFENDERS
A 32 year old Chicago convicted sex offender, Judex Colon, has been arrested for the sexual assault of a 4 year old girl on a CTA bus. The story sounds sick enough with that alone; however, it gets worse if possible. The habitual sex offender boarded a city bus after just registering as a sex offender at the Chicago Police Headquarters, sat down next to an innocent 4 year old girl and sexually assaulted her. ARE YOU SERIOUS!?! This deviant was on his way home from registering as a sex offender and he commits a sex crime! Colon was charged with predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim under the age of 13 and held without bond. Thirteen, the girl was 4!!! The Class X charges carries a sentence of 6 to 30 years in prison on conviction.
Here is a shock, this POS has a criminal history of sexual assault. Colon was previously convicted in 2008 of aggravated criminal sexual abuse of a victim under the age of 13 in Lake County, Indiana. Colon sexually abused two girls while working as a carnival-ride operator. He was also convicted of failure to register as a sex offender in Cook County in 2013 and sentenced to two years in prison.
A Chicago man who had just registered as a sex offender is charged with sexual assault for allegedly groping a four-year-old girl on his bus ride home, reports CBS Chicago.
Judex Colon, 32, boarded a city bus Tuesday afternoon and sat down next to the girl, according to a statement from the Cook County state’s attorney’s office. At the time, he was returning from registering as a sex offender at the Chicago Police Headquarters, according to the station.
While riding the bus, Colon “placed his hands on the victim over her clothes and then lifted the child’s jacket and continued to inappropriately touch and rub the victim,” according to the state’s attorney’s office. Colon then allegedly got off the bus and ran away.
The girl, who was riding the bus with relatives, was so frightened by the incident that she urinated on herself, prosecutors said. She told her mother about the assault after arriving home.
At what point do we take these crimes against children seriously and throw these SOB’s in prison for life? How about when he is sent back to general population in prison, this POS is given a shirt that says,”I sexually assault children”.
A police booking photo showed Colon, who was arrested Wednesday, wearing an orange T-shirt that read, “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say will be misquoted and used against you.”
He appeared to be wearing the same shirt under a black hoodie in court Friday.

Six members of the Pyle family missing after fire destroys their mansion …
Following an inferno, that burned down a waterfront, 16,000-square-foot, $9 million mansion in Annapolis, Maryland, six people remain missing and unaccounted for. The fire was reported about 3:30 a.m. and took 85 firefighters responding from multiple areas. Shortly after 3am, crews were dispatched to 936 Childs Point Road (MAP) for a structure fire. Because of the intensity of the fire, the size of the house and the failure of the roof and floors, firefighters have been unable to search the structure. The fire wasn’t placed under control until 7:05 a.m. The home was completely gutted. Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation records list Don Pyle and Sandra Pyle as owners of the home and their principal residence.
Six people remain unaccounted for after a fierce fire gutted a 16,000-square-foot mansion in Maryland’s capital early Monday, a fire official said.
The fire was reported about 3:30 a.m. by an alarm monitoring company and a neighbor who saw flames at the mansion in Annapolis, said Capt. Russ Davies, spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Fire Department.
“From the family, we know who’s unaccounted for,” Davies said, though he declined to say who specifically could not be located. “If you look at the damage, you know, it would not be a stretch to think that if there were occupants that they did not survive the fire.”
Earlier, Davies had said the home’s occupants might have been out of town.
Anne Arundel County officials say each of the missing people are family members.
Firefighters suspended their search Monday afternoon for six people missing after a raging four-alarm fire at a mansion south of Annapolis.
The Anne Arundel County Fire Department has requested help from the National Response Team at the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, said Capt. Russ Davies, a spokesman for the fire department.
He said the team can provide special equipment needed to remove steel bars that collapsed into the basement of the two-story structure. Davies said the equipment needed for the heavy lifting may not be in place until Wednesday.
UPDATE II: Relatives believe family was in mansion for fire.
The relatives of six family members unaccounted for after a massive fire gutted a waterfront mansion believe they were inside at the time of the blaze, a fire official said Tuesday.
The charred multimillion-dollar mansion near Maryland’s capital is the focus of the search for the six missing family members, said Capt. Russ Davies, a spokesman for the Anne Arundel County Fire Department.
Davies has declined to identify the family members. On Tuesday, he wouldn’t give further details about what their relatives said or why they believe the family was inside the mansion.
A tech tycoon, his wife and their four grandchildren were killed after a devastating blaze ripped through their Annapolis mansion in the early hours of Monday, it has been confirmed.
Emergency crews in Annapolis were scrambled to the blaze at the waterfront home of Don Pyle, a former CEO, but were unable to save the couple and the children.
Don Pyle, 56, lived in the 16,000sq ft home with his wife Sandra. Authorities are yet to confirm the deaths but a local headteacher sent out a letter to staff and students on Tuesday confirming the family had been killed and naming the grandchildren as Lexi Boone, Katie Boone, Charlotte Boone and Wes Boone.
Stacey Boone, mother to two daughters Lexi and Katie with Sandra Pyle’s son Randy Boone, also confirmed they had died, according to The Capital.

35 Year Old Wendy Holland Sentenced to 219 Years in Prison for Sodomy, Sexual Abuse & Incestuous Sex Ring in Molesting Children (VIDEO)
Wendy Holland sentenced to 219 years in prison and it probably wasn’t even enough for her heinous crimes …
On Thursday, 35 year old Wendy Holland was sentenced to 219 years for her role in an incestuous sex ring accused of molesting children for years. Holland was previously convicted of incest, sodomy, sexual abuse, sexual torture, child endangerment and molestation. Prior to sentencing Judge Jody Bishop stated in the ”Fourteen years I’ve been on the bench, I have never seen a case come as close as bad as this one has been in terms of acts of sexual abuse.” Wendy Holland is the aunt of Brittany Wood who went missing at age 19 in May of 2012 and is now presumed dead. Defendant, William Brownlee, 50, received the maximum sentence of 20 year s for his crimes. This POS was convicted of sodomy and sexual abuse in October 2014. Judge Bishop stated the maximum sentence was not long enough. Agreed!
Holland, one of the leaders of an incestuous sex ring, was sentenced Thursday by a Baldwin County judge to 219 years in prison.
Holland, 35, stood expressionless as Judge Jody Bishop sentenced Holland for sex crimes she committed to children. She was convicted by a jury on charges of sodomy, sexual torture, and sex abuse to a child under age 12.
“Fourteen years I’ve been on the bench, I have never seen a case come as close as bad as this one has been in terms of acts of sexual abuse,” Bishop said before sentencing. “The court can’t … understand why you did all of this action.”
Also sentenced Thursday was family friend, William “Billy” Brownlee, 50, to 20 years in prison. He also participated in deviant sexual acts to children inside the Wood homes in Stockton and Fairhope.
Brownlee and Holland also face pending charges in Mobile County.
Holland and Brownlee were among 11 people charged with sex crimes following the disappearance in 2012 of a suspected victim of the ring, 19-year-old Brittney Wood.
In a letter read in court, the underage female victim in both cases said years of abuse left her traumatized. She has a hard time trusting anyone, gets angry easily and rarely feels safe.
“I was a little girl being held down and raped,” wrote the victim, who was in court.
Authorities said the two were part of a group of relatives and friends who sexually abused children and swapped their own kids for sex for years.
Holland is the widow of the alleged leader of the group, Donnie Holland, who was Brittney Wood’s uncle. The teen went missing around the time Holland was found with a gunshot to the head; his death was later ruled a suicide.
Even without Brittney Wood to testify, two of her uncles and an older brother already pleaded guilty to sex charges before juries convicted Wendy Holland and Brownlee.

Arrest Warrant Issued for 9 Year Old Boy in Post Falls, ID For Failure to Appear in Court after Stealing Pack of Gum
9 year old gum stealing boy public enemy #1 in Post Falls, Idaho …
A 9 year old boy in Post Falls, Idaho was arrested for failure to appear in court for a second time. The original offense that the 9 year old was charged with, stealing a pack of gum. That is correct folks, a pack of frigging gum. Are you telling me that we are wasting the police and courts time with offenses like stealing a single pack of gum? UNREAL. So in 2015, pot is legal but stealing gum that cost less than a $1 gets you a court date? According to reports, the child did not show for court because his family had no way to get him to the courthouse. How is a 9 year old boy held responsible for not being able to get to Court? Maybe he should have stole a car and drove? The child is currently in the Juvenile Detention Center where he will soon stand before a judge. Really, you have a 9 year old in a Juvenile Detention Center because of this with all the risks that are prevalent being in Juvy?
Are you telling me that the legal system could not have found a better way to handle this situation? Three 4th grade girls had no charges filed against them in New York after plotting to kill their teacher because no one got hurt, yet theft of less than $1 gets this poor 9 yer old boy time in a Juvenile Detention Center. Head shaking.
Post Falls Chief of Police Scott Haug says he was very surprised when an arrest warrant landed on his desk earlier this week. The warrant was for a “failure to appear,” not uncommon. But the perpetrator was a nine year old boy.
Kootenai County Prosecuting Attorney Barry McHugh, who issued the arrest warrant, was not able to comment because the case involves someone younger than 18 years old. However, Haug says the warrant was issued because it was the second time the 9 year old missed his day in court.
What was the original charge? Stealing a pack of gum.
Haug says this is the first time in his 30 years in law enforcement that he’s ever seen an arrest warrant issued for someone as young as nine.
25 Year Old John Nicholas Jonchuck Jr. Arrested After Throwing His Daughter Phoebe Jonchuck from the Dick Misener Bridge 60 feet to Her Death in Tampa, FL
GOOD GOD, WHY DO WE ALLOW CHILDREN TO BE AROUND DANGEROUS PARENTS!!!
25 year old John Nicholas Jonchuck Jr. was arrested after this deranged SOB pulled his 5 year old daughter, Phoebe Jonchuck, from her pink car seat and threw her from the Dick Misener Bridge to her death into the waters 60 feet below in Tampa Bay, Florida. UNREAL. John Nicholas Jonchuck has been charged with first degree murder. How did this father have any form of custody of this child when he had prior domestic violence arrests?
Please, save the Florida tax payer of a trial and just toss his ass off the same bridge.
John Nicholas Jonchuck Jr
A demented dad tossed his 5-year-old daughter to her death off a Florida bridge early Thursday, then drove off as frantic rescuers tried to recover the little girl’s body, police said.
Some 30 minutes after the fatal fall near the Sunshine Skyway Bridge in St. Petersburg, Fla., cops caught up to 25-year-old John Nicholas Jonchuck Jr. and arrested him on murder charges.
A St. Petersburg police officer was headed home south on Interstate 275 when a white PT Cruiser blew by him going 100 miles per hour just after midnight Thursday, police said. The officer followed and saw Jonchuck stop the car, pull little Phoebe Jonchuck from her pink car seat and throw the girl over the railing of the Dick Misener Bridge on the approach to the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, which connects St. Pete with Terra Ceia in the Tampa area on Florida’s west coast.
John Nicholas Jonchuck faces first-degree murder charges in the death of his daughter who he threw off the Sunshine Skyway bridge into the bay just after midnight.
An officer heading home after his shift saw Jonchuck’s vehicle speed past at nearly 100 mph, Holloway said. The officer prepared to pull the PT Cruiser over, but by the time he caught up with it, Jonchuck had pulled over on the side of the road.
Holloway said Jonchuck got out and started toward the officer, who pulled his weapon. But Jonchuck went around to the passenger side of the car and got the child out.
The officer “thought he heard the child scream, but he wasn’t sure,” Holloway said. The officer then saw the man throw the child over, into the strong bay current.
Her body was recovered about a mile from the bridge and hour and a half later. Rescue crews tried to revive her, but she was pronounced dead at 2:44 a.m.
