53 Year Old Nudist in Palm Beach County, FL Arrested … Claims Pics of 3 Daughters not Child Porn, But Instead “Regular Family Portraits of a Naturist Family”
Child Porn or Nudist pics, you make the call …
53 year old Brian Martens has been arrested and charged one count of producing child pornography and one count of receiving child pornography after having taken “pornographic” pictures of his 3 young daughters and sharing them with other men. It appears that Martens is proving a different and pathetic kind of defense stating that the pics were not child porn, but instead the pictures “are regular family portraits of a naturist family.” Hmm, Brian Martens may also have land to sell you in the Everglades … Martens is a former resident of the Sunsport Gardens Family Naturist Resort in Loxahatchee Groves, FL. However as reported at ABC News, federal magistrate Judge Bill Matthewman said in court on Wednesday that the images of the girls, aged 8 to 12, were suggestive enough that Martens should stand trial. Judge Bill Matthewman said that many of the photos the court has reviewed are lascivious and they are, in the court’s opinion, sexually explicit.” If convicted Martens faces a maximum sentence of 30 years for producing child pornography and an additional 20 years if convicted of receiving child porn.
A South Florida nudist, arrested on charges that he helped take pornographic photographs of his three young daughters and shared them with other men, is putting on an unusual defense.
Brian Martens, 53, who was living at a nudist colony in Palm Beach County, is arguing that there is nothing pornographic about the pictures and that they are regular family portraits of a naturist family.
Federal prosecutors say they believe several of the photographs are clearly inappropriate and the final judgment call should lie with a trial jury. A grand jury has already voted there was enough evidence to indict Martens on one count of producing child pornography and one count of receiving child pornography.
The three girls have been taken away from Martens by the Florida Department of Children & Families following Vanaman’s arrest. The children are currently in foster care; however, Martens’ attorney said the girls will be returned to their mother in Illinois, who knew about and supported their decision to live in a nudist community. Great, sounds like they are headed to another irresponsible parent.
Professional photographer, Leslie Grey Vanaman, who owned A Shade of Grey Photography was already tried and convicted of child porn and is currently serving a 60 year sentence.
Vanaman is serving 60 years in federal prison after he pleaded guilty to charges of receiving and possessing child pornography — including the photographs of Martens’ daughters and other children, prosecutors said. Vanaman already had a 2004 state conviction in New Jersey of possessing child pornography downloaded from the Internet, court records show.
For what it is worth, Marten’s defense attorney James Eisenberg, never gave his permission for the explicit pic of a close-up shot of one of the girl’s genital area to be shot. Reports say that the father cried when he was shown the pictures; however, upon review Marten’s computer shows a much, much different story.
Marten’s attorney James Eisenberg agreed that one of the photographs is child pornography — one the judge described as a close-up shot of one of the girl’s genital area — but said his client did not know the photograph was taken and never gave his permission for it to be shot. Martens hired a professional family photographer to take family portraits, Eisenberg said.
“He cried as he viewed the images,” Galler said.
Martens told the agents he only gave permission for Vanaman to take naturist photos.
But further analysis of Vanaman’s computer revealed a very different story, Galler told the judge. Martens had signed releases and received on several occasions more than 50 photographs that contained child pornography of the three girls taken between 2010 and 2012, Galler said.
Agents also found emails between Martens, Vanaman and a third man in which they discussed Vanaman’s “craft” and “the sensuality and sexuality” of the images.
In 1999 Grand Jury Sought to Indict JonBenet Ramsey’s Parents, Patricia Paugh Ramsey & John Ramsey on Charges of Child Abuse Resulting in Death & Accessories to a Crime
After 17 years, Colorado courts have released the previously sealed court documents of the grand jury indictments against the parents of murdered 6 year old beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey, Patricia Paugh Ramsey and John Ramsey. The Colorado grand jury looked to bring identical charges against both Patsy and John Ramsey of child abuse resulting in death and accessories to a crime. However, the indictments were never pursued by the prosecutor stating there was insufficient evidence.
Both John and Patricia Ramsey charged with felonious child abuse resulting in death
Both John and Patricia Ramsey charged by grand jury with felonious accessory to a crime
Colorado court ordered the release of the previously sealed court documents, putting new attention on the unsolved 1996 death of JonBenet Ramsey, a girl who won child beauty pageants and whose murder shocked the nation. The pages were sealed in 1999, after the grand jury in the case dispersed without charges being filed.
The court documents show how the grand jury sought to charge each parent with two identical counts.
The grand jury had alleged that Patricia Paugh Ramsey, who died from ovarian cancer in 2006, and husband John Bennett Ramsey “did … permit a child to be unreasonably placed in a situation which posed a threat of injury to the child’s life or health which resulted in the death of JonBenet Ramsey.”
The grand jury also had alleged that each parent “did … render assistance to a person, with intent to hinder, delay and prevent the discovery, detention, apprehension, prosecution, conviction and punishment of such person for the commission of a crime, knowing the person being assisted has committed and was suspected of the crime of murder in the first degree and child abuse resulting in death.”
Boulder Police Chief Mark Beckner said Friday that the murder case is now considered “open,” but it’s a cold case that’s not being actively investigated.
UPDATE I: Grand jury prepared child abuse indictment against JonBenet Ramsey’s parents, newly released documents show.
Fourteen years later, a local newspaper reporter who learned through sources that the grand jury had voted on an indictment convinced a judge to unseal part of it.
There were four pages released, two John Ramsey and two for Patricia, who died of cancer in 2006. Both were indicted on two counts: child abuse resulting in death and accessory to a crime.
But the documents were short on details, raising perhaps more questions than they answered.
Although the Boulder DA had earmarked 18 indictment pages for possible release, the judge only put out those that were signed by the grand jury foreperson.
It’s unclear if the other pages contained more details about the Ramseys’ actions or named someone as the killer.
Ohio Daycare Employee Heather Koon Arrested After Police Discovered Sex Tape of Suspect Raping an Infant
UNSPEAKABLE CRIME AT DAYCARE CENTER …
25 year old daycare worker Heather Koon has been arrested for raping a baby. The video of the sex crime was found on Koon’s laptop. The video was reportedly found on Koon’s laptop, after police checked up on her fiancé James Osborne, who is listed on Lorain County’s sex offender website at an incorrect address. The police arrested him as well. The horrific crime took place at the ABC KIDZ daycare in Elyria, Ohio. Sorry, but they should just these two dirt-bags in a room with the parents who had their children at this daycare and let them take justice into their own hands.
I still haven’t wrapped my mind around it. It’s every parent’s worst nightmare,” said the baby’s father, who wants to remain anonymous.
The father is speaking out about the incident so other parents can figure out if their child was also victimized. He says ABC KIDZ daycare in Elyria asked him not to talk about the incident.
“They tried to act like it was a simple assault. A few hours later they called us back again and asked us to keep it discrete,” said the dad.
The shocked father’s advice; “Any child that’s old enough to talk, they should talk to. Any child that’s not old enough to talk should be taken to a physician.”
Police arrested Koon after checking up on her boyfriend, James Osborne. Osborne is listed on Lorain County’s sex offender website as living at another address. Police arrested him and confiscated a laptop found in the apartment. A police report shows it belonged to Koon and contained a video file of her “engaging in sexual conduct with an unknown infant”.
Woman Tries to Ram Her Car into a White House Barricade … Car Chase … Ends in Woman Shot Dead Near the US Capitol (Update: Woman ID’d as Miriam Carey)
A woman with a child in car tried to ram her vehicle through White House barricades.
ABC News: Attempt to Ram White House Gate Ends With Conn. Woman Dead. Woman identified as 34 year old Miriam Carey, a dental hygienist from Stamford, CT. Thankfully, the one year old child was unharmed during the insane acts of Carey and the hail of gun fire.
A dental hygienist from Stamford, Conn., was shot dead by police today after allegedly attempting to ram the White House gates and leading authorities on a high-speed chase to the U.S. Capitol, officials said.
The related gunfire sent senators and staffers scrambling inside the Capitol, which was put under lockdown.
The dead suspect was identified as Miriam Carey, 34, according to a spokesman for Carey’s family. Authorities said she had a history of mental health issues, and her mother told ABC News she suffered from post-partum depression.
Weasel Zippers makes some interesting points, the Capitol “Shooter” Doesn’t Fit Media Narrative – No Gun, No Shooting, Woman With Baby In Car.
That was when I knew the case didn’t fit their “evil NRA gun toting” narrative.
Turns out of there was no gun, no shooting, the woman was an African-American dental hygenist with a baby in the car. There were reports that she may have a history of mental illness but it remains to be seen what might have precipitated all this.
Amber Alert Issued North Carolina for 1 Year Old Shylin Olanda Neal Missing Since 8/29/13 in High Point, NC … Child Sleeping Inside Stolen Vehicle (Update: Toddler Found Unharmed)
Authorities have issued an AMBER ALERT in North Carolina for missing 1 year old Shylin Olanda Neal. According to accounts, Shylin’s godfather had parked his white 2003 Chevrolet Suburban outside a Food Lion and left the girl sleeping inside while he went into the store shortly before 10 pm, Thursday night. When he came back to the vehicle, the vehicle and Shylin Olanda was gone. The SUV has a sunroof, a North Carolina license plate No. BJX1565 and a sticker that says “I LOVE WAKEBOARDING.
It is uncertain whether this was intended to be a child abduction or it was a car jacking and the thieves had no idea that there was a child sleeping in the vehicle. One can only hope that if that is the case, there is some honor amongst thieves and they will just drop the child off at a church, fire station or hospital.
Authorities were calling in additional manpower Friday to search for a missing High Point baby who was sleeping inside a parked vehicle when it was stolen outside a grocery store late Thursday.
An Amber Alert has been issued for 1-year-old Shylin Olanda Neal. She is described as black, about 18 inches tall and weighing about 24 pounds. She has brown eyes and black hair braided with beads that are blue and clear.

WFMY, a CBS affliate in Greensboro, reported that Shylin’s godfather parked his white 2003 Chevrolet Suburban outside a Food Lion and left the girl sleeping inside while he went into the store shortly before 10 p.m. When he returned, the vehicle was gone.
The stolen SUV is described as a white 2003 Chevrolet Suburban with N.C. tags BJX-1565. The vehicle has a sunroof and an “I love wakeboarding” sticker on the back.
As of 7 a.m. Friday, High Point Police Capt. Mike Kirk said there had been no sightings of the SUV or Neal.
Kirk said the vehicle theft “appears to be random.”
The FBI and every law enforcement agency within a 50-mile radius has been notified of the case, Kirk said.
Officers will be back out to the area this morning to canvass surrounding businesses for any surveillance footage. Kirk says they plan to use aircraft to aid in the search efforts once the weather clears.

This irresponsible moron is being charged of reckless injury to a child. That’s it? Kariasa Thomas told police she used her phone to log on to Facebook for about 15 minutes, plus played with her dog. Because God forbid you be doing your job and actually looking out after the child!

Mirror: Sunday People Alleges that Michael Jackson Paid $35 Million to Silence at Least Two Dozen Boys He Abused
The UK Daily Mail reports via the Sunday People paid $35 million to silence at least two dozen boys he abused over the years. According to accounts, there were secret FBI files exclusively seen by the Sunday People that revealed how the King of Pop bought off parents and victims. The story also goes on to say that the documents, case numbers CADCE MJ-02463 and CR 01046, were not passed on to prosecutors in Jackson’s 2005 trial, when he was cleared of molesting a child. When Anthony Pellicano was investigated in 2002 for bugging Hollywood stars, the FBI seized his files, including many about Jackson and all of the sordid details of Jackson’s exploits.
Does this really come as a shock to anyone? The two greatest legal travesties out of Hollywood from the past 20 years was that O.J. Simpson was found not guilty of murdering Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman due to jury nullification and that Michale Jackson was never convicted of molesting children.
Michael Jackson discusses his tucking boys into bed … “When you say bed, you make it sexual” … ICK!!!
Michael Jackson paid $35 million in hush money to at least two dozen young boys he sexually abused over 15 years, it has been alleged.
Sunday People has published explosive ‘secret FBI files’ suggesting the King of Pop groomed and molested children from at least 1989, despite his insistence he was just spending time with them.
The damning files claim the deceased popstar was a ‘pedophile’ who watched porn while assaulting a boy, molested a famous child star, fondled a child’s genitals in his private cinema and groped another child whose mother wasn’t ‘bothered’ by it.
The FBI did not return Mail Online’s calls today.
Jackson family lawyers have to date insisted the star has only paid off the family of Jordan Chandler, 13, who he allegedly abused in 1993.
However a sleuth hired by Anthony Pellicano – a celebrity private eye Jackson allegedly hired to make the pedophilia claims go away – has claimed Jackson was a ‘serial child predator’ who paid out scores of children he allegedly abused at his Neverland Ranch.
The “lost boys” lured to Michael Jackson’s Neverland ranch were enticed into a sordid fantasy world hidden from their parents, the Sunday People can reveal.
Shocking audio tapes from the singer’s secret FBI file offer a chilling insight into the superstar’s depravity.
They reveal how groups of kids would be invited to Jackson’s estate, where he would then isolate his prey.
The twisted star would sleep with children in a tepee as well as his bed and was even seen groping two boys.
