UNBELIEVABLE … Limestone County, AL Judge James Woodroof Suspended Sentence of Austin Clem Convicted of Forcible & 2nd Degree Rape from 20 Years to No Prison Time Sentence
If there was ever a story that needed to be categorized as WTF, it is the following one …
JUSTICE? 25 year old Austin Clem had been previously convicted raping a minor Courtney Andrews. The abuse started when she was 13, saying she kept quiet for years because of threats at the hands of her rapist. Clem had sexually abused her at age 13, then raped her twice at age 14 and once at age 18. Austin Clem now faced the sentencing for his crimes, or so everyone thought. Initially, Limestone County, Alabama Judge James Woodroof handed down a jail terms of 20 years for forcible rape and 10 years each for two second-degree rape charges to run concurrently. Then Judge James Woodroof did the unthinkable. The judge suspended those sentences and instead gave Clem three community corrections sentences of two years plus three years of supervised probation, to be carried out concurrently. Austin Clem must register as a sex offender, but if he follows all the ridiculous suspended sentence guidelines, this rapist will stay out of prison. According to reports at CNN, not only was the victim stunned, so to was the rapist’s defense attorney.
I’m still baffled,” the victim, Courtney Andrews, told CNN. She came forward publicly to express her outrage over Wednesday’s sentencing. “I don’t know how any of this is possible.”
The defense for Austin Clem, 25, was also caught off guard at first.
“Frankly, I think the judge’s sentence was surprising to most everyone in the courtroom,” said Clem’s attorney, Dan Totten.
What the hell was this judge thinking, suspending a sentence from 20 years to 6 years probation and no prison time for forcible and two counts of 2nd degree rape? UNREAL!!! Get this, the lawyer for Clem is actually considering appealing the conviction. It’s not bad enough this POS does not have to serve time in prison, he is whining that the slap on the wrist given is like house arrest. Poor baby.
The lawyer says Clem is considering an appeal on the conviction. He has 30 days from the sentencing to do so.
As the sentence stands, the requirements for community corrections are so stringent that they are in effect a form of house arrest, Totten said.
“It sets a bar so high, I don’t know of a lot of people who could abide by these limitations,” he said.
The county’s district attorney, Brian Jones is “reviewing available options to set aside this sentence and to achieve a sentence that gives justice to our victim.”
Project Spade: 348 People Arrested in International Child Porn Ring Bust …386 Children Have Been Rescued
PROJECT SPADE BUSTS INTERNATIONAL CHILD PORN RING …
One of the largest commercial child pornography ring ever has been uncovered and busted in Canada. At last count, 348 people have been arrested in “Project Spade” (VIDEO) from over 50 countries and a reported 386 children have been rescued. As reported at Inside Toronto, police traced the internet connection to a Toronto man who was running an “exploitation” movie production and distribution company. “This company operated a website known as www.azovfilms.com where customers from around the world could place orders to have movies sent to them through the mail or through the internet. At the center of the child porn ring is 42 year old Brian Way. This low life, oh alleged low life, faces 24 charges of making, possessing, distributing, exporting and selling the explicit images of boys, ranging in ages from toddlers to teens.
In all because of the Project Spade investigation, 108 Canadians have been arrested, 50 in Ontario, of whom at least 20 have so far pleaded guilty to various charges. Another 76 Americans face charges. Internationally, another 164 are before the courts and many more are still under investigation.
They have also laid a charge of instructing a criminal organization, the first time this has been done in relation to a child pornography investigation. It is a charge more usually associated with gangs or organized crime.
“This case has really challenged people to reconsider what nudism and child modelling are,” said Toronto police Detective-Constable Lisa Belanger, who led the investigation. “It’s caused countries around the world to look at this material and ask whether it’s OK for doctors, teachers, daycare providers and hockey coaches to be buying this kind of material. Countries from South Africa to Australia, Isle of Man to Hong Kong and Spain have all said it’s not OK. I think it’s going to have ripple effects everywhere.”
A three-year investigation into an exploitative Toronto-based film company has netted nearly 350 arrests and rescued more than 380 children from sexual abuse, police said Thursday.
Law enforcement from all over the world, primarily in Eastern Europe and the United States, worked with Toronto police since 2010 to arrest those who produced child pornography and those who purchased it.
The owner of the film company, Brian Way, has been in jail since 2011 awaiting trial, and the producers who made the illegal films have been convicted in their home countries, Toronto police Inspector Joanna Beaven-Desjardins said.
The investigation is ongoing and more arrests will be made, but authorities decided it was time to share with the public the scope of its operation, known as Project Spade.
Among the 348 people arrested in the international child sex abuse investigation were 40 teachers, six law enforcement personnel, nine pastors or priests and some doctors and nurses, Beaven-Desjardins said.
Throughout the investigation, 386 children have been rescued, she said, referring to their removal from situations where they were being abused.
UPDATE I: David Scott Engle, from Lake Lucerne, Washington, is believed to be the first US child sex offender officially identified as someone caught by investigators from Project Spade.
A youth baseball coach was exposed as a prolific pedophile in one of the world’s biggest ever child porn busts, it can be revealed today.
David Scott Engle is believed to be the first American child sex offender officially identified as someone caught by investigators from Project Spade.
Last month MailOnline reported Engle, a divorce lawyer from Lake Lucerne in Washington, was sentenced to 25 years in prison after amassing thousands of child pornography images.
The 50-year-old will now stand trial on child rape charges after investigators found dozens of videos of him allegedly carrying out sickening sexual assaults on two boys.
David Rock, 52, charged with two counts of possessing child pornography and one count of accessing it, has a court date of Dec. 13 for a preliminary hearing.
William Allard, 38, has a court date of Nov. 29.
Anthony Ryckman, 42, pleaded guilty to one count each of possessing, making and accessing child pornography, and two counts of voyeurism.
Ryckman was sentenced to 23 months in jail and three years of probation. He has been ordered not to associate with anyone under 16 and given a DNA order and forfeiture order.
Ryckman will also be on the sex offender registry for life.
According to Penn State News, the University of Penn State has settled with 26 victims for $49.7 million as a result of the Jerry Sandusky sexual abuse scandal. Officials state that the settlement amounts will not be funded by student tuition, taxpayer funds or donations, but rather by various liability insurance policies. The terms of the settlement include a confidentiality agreement. Sandusky is currently in prison after being found guilty on 45 counts of child sex charges including 25 felonies.
Penn State officials announced today (Oct. 28) that over the past few months the University has reached agreement with 26 of the victims of former assistant football coach Gerald Sandusky. The terms of the settlements, which include a release of all claims against Penn State and other parties, are subject to confidentiality agreements. Of the 26 settlements, 23 are fully signed and three are agreed in principle, with final documentation expected within the next few weeks.
The aggregate dollar amount paid by the University for the 26 settled claims is $59.7 million and will be reflected in the University’s audited financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2013.
“The Board of Trustees has had as one of its primary objectives to reach settlements in a way that is fair and respects the privacy of the individuals involved,” said Keith Masser, chair of the Board of Trustees. “This is another important milestone in accomplishing that goal. I would like to thank the board’s Legal and Compliance Committee, as well as its Legal Subcommittee for its leadership throughout this process.”
As reported at USA Today, PSU President Rodney Erickson called the agreements “another step forward in the healing process for those hurt by Mr. Sandusky, and another step forward for Penn State.”
Harrisburg lawyer Ben Andreozzi, who represents nine of the victims, said he was pleased with the settlements.
“Obviously no amount of money can compensate for what these young men have gone through,” he said. “But Penn State has given them the resources — financially and counseling — they need to help them recover.”
Illegal Immigrant Cecilio Rivera-Lozano Arrested for molesting 11 Year Old Girl in Naples, FL … Epidemic of Child Molestation Cases by Illegals
Another illegal alien doing the jobs that Americans just don’t want to do … With illegal immigration, ask yourself, does our government care about the children?
24 year old “illegal alien” Cecilio Rivera-Lozano has been arrested in Naples, Florida for molesting an 11 year old girl. The victim told Collier County Sheriff’s Office. that she had been sexually assaulted for almost every day for the past 8 months. Rivera-Lozano is being held with no bond due to him being an illegal immigrant and being considered a flight risk. Imagine that?
Cecilio Rivera-Lozano – illegal immigrant sexual predator
A Collier County man was arrested for allegedly molesting an 11-year-old girl.
According to reports, a school counselor reported an 11-year-old girl had been sexually abused.
The victim said she had moved to Naples from Honduras about nine months ago.
She told deputies Cecilio Rivera-Lozano, 24, had been sexually abusing her almost every day for the past eight months beginning in March.
On Wednesday, the victim told a neighbor Rivera-Lozano had been forcing sex acts upon her. The neighbor reported the allegations to the victim’s mother and school counselor.
Hmm, and Barack Obama wants to push “illegal” immigration reform and amnesty for those that are in the United States illegally as there is an epidemic of child molestation cases perpetrated by illegals. Sorry, a broken immigration system where the government refuses to enforce the laws on the books and protect the border does not mean to provide amnesty for child molesters.
How much longer will the media remain silent on this human rights crisis?
Since President Obama’s announcement of last year’s executive order, basically putting a halt to nearly all deportations, combined with the amnesty bill currently making its way through the U.S. Senate, there has been a tremendous increase in the number of illegal aliens coming to this country over our largely unprotected border with Mexico.Related topicsImmigration[/*]Illegal Aliens’ Crimes Against Children[/*]amnesty[/*]liberal media bias[/*][/list]
Of course, an increase in the number of crimes committed by those same illegal aliens has seemingly exploded during this same period. In particular, instances of rape and child molestation at the hands of those here illegally have reached epidemic proportions. The following list represents only a few of those crimes that have taken place in the last month, alone: (read the full story here)
- In northern Wisconsin, 25-year-old Paulo Sheispan-Landero, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, is charged with first degree sexual assault on a child under 13, a felony which would fall under Wisconsin’s Jessica’s Law.

52 Year Old Conrado Juarez Arrested in the 22 Year Old Murder Case of ‘Baby Hope’ … Victim Finally Named, 4 Year Old Anjelica Castillo
Finally after 22 years, the murder and sexual assault case of ‘Baby Hope’ has been solved …
52 year old Conrado Juarez has been arrested and charged and charged with the felony murder of “Baby Hope’. 22 years after 4 year old Baby Hope’s sexually abused and badly decomposed body was found inside of a cooler that was dumped in the woods off New York’s Henry Hudson Parkway, the victim finally has a name … Anjelica Castillo. According to police it was an anonymous tip that starting the ball rolling that lead authorities to Anjelica’s sister, now an adult. They then identified the woman believed to be the girl’s mother. Police Commissioner Ray Kelly stated it eventually led to Juarez and his arrest. ‘s arrest. Conrado Juarez was Anjelica’s cousin on her father’s side. According to Ray Kelly, Juarez has admitted to the crime.
The announcement of an arrest in one of New York City’s most notorious cold cases was especially relieving for two hardened investigators, who for 22 years had been working to identify the girl they nicknamed Baby Hope after discovering her body stuffed in a picnic cooler along a highway.
Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Melissa Mourges, the original prosecutor in the 1991 case and now chief of the cold case unit, told a Manhattan judge that Conrado Juarez, 52, was charged with felony murder late Saturday.
The charge came shortly after police announced the Bronx man was a relative of the tiny victim, 4-year-old Anjelica Castillo. Police revealed her name for the first time earlier in the day.
Juarez, wearing a white short sleeve button-down shirt and blue pants, pleaded not guilty but said nothing else after he was remanded to custody. Attorney information was not immediately available.
Detectives from the New York Police Department’s Cold Case Apprehension Squad never stopped searching for answers in the case. Each year, on the anniversary of the July 23, 1991, discovery of her body, they would canvass nearby neighborhoods, handing out fliers and asking people for information.
It was an anonymous tip called in after the latest canvass in July that helped crack the case, Police Commissioner Ray Kelly said. It led detectives to Anjelica’s sister, now an adult; from there, they identified the woman believed to be the girl’s mother, he said.
“That individual’s actions were the catalyst for this most recent lead,” Kelly said, referring to Juarez’s arrest. He is Anjelica’s cousin on her father’s side.
Police arrested Juarez after questioning him near the Manhattan restaurant where he worked as a dishwasher, Kelly said. He was expressionless as police led him in handcuffs past reporters.
Juarez admitted to the crime Saturday morning, Kelly said.
UPDATE I: ‘Baby Hope’ case: Cousin confesses to sexually assaulting, killing toddler Anjelica Castillo more than two decades ago.
Conrado Juarez, 52, confessed Saturday to killing the girl and disposing of her body in a cooler with the help of his sister, Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said.
His tiny victim, whose name had been a mystery for more than two decades, was identified for the first time as 4-year-old Anjelica Castillo.
Juarez, a dishwasher from the Bronx, told cops he sodomized and then quietly smothered Anjelica with a pillow in a hallway at his sister’s home in Astoria, Queens.
When the little girl went motionless, Juarez summoned his sister, Balvina Juarez-Ramirez, from another room, Kelly said.
Juarez-Ramirez, who was caring for the girl, insisted they secretly get rid of her body, Kelly said.
She brought him a filthy cooler — as the other family members living there remained unaware of the cruelty underway just down the hall, Kelly said.
Juarez and his sister, who is now dead, carried the cooler out of the apartment and took a black livery cab to Manhattan, where they dumped the icebox along a wooded stretch of the Henry Hudson Parkway.
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”.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!!
How on earth are these illegal sex offenders afforded rights under the US Constitution, when it seems like law abiding, actual citizens of the US are having theirs taken away every single day? ICE has released 2,837 illegal alien sex offenders from detention and back into the US population. UNREAL!!! Has the SCOTUS lost their collective minds? So now illegal sex offender have rights. Maybe we can get them drivers licenses too.
Who honestly thinks that this could be a good idea? I have to 100% agree with the minority decent, Justice Antonin Scalia, who said: “Insofar as a claimed legal right to release into this country is concerned, an alien under final order of removal stands on an equal footing with an inadmissible alien at the threshold of entry: He has no such right.”
The 2,837 sex offenders represented five percent of the 59,347 deportable aliens that have been released from detention under the supervision of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), according to the GAO report, which was released Thursday.
“There are circumstances in which criminal aliens who have been ordered removed from the United States – including those convicted of a sex offense – cannot be removed,” the report states. “For example, a criminal alien may not be removed because the designated country will not accept the alien’s return.”
The GAO report refers to the 2001 Supreme Court case Zadvydas v. Davis to explain why ICE is required to release foreigners who have been convicted of sex crimes. In its 5-4 decision, the court ruled that the indefinite detention of removable aliens for greater than six months is unconstitutional unless there is “significant likelihood of removal in the reasonably foreseeable future.”
“Freedom from imprisonment lies at the heart of the liberty protected by the Due Process Clause,” Associate Justice Stephen Breyer wrote in the majority opinion. Breyer was joined in this opinion by J.P. Stevens (a Gerald Ford apppointee), Sandra Day O’Connor (a Reagan appointee), Ruth Bader Ginsburg (a Clinton appointee), and David Souter (a George H.W. Bush appointee).
JUSTICE SERVED … Texas Dad Will Not Charged Who Beat To Death the Man Who Was Raping His 5 Year Old Daughter
DON’T MESS WITH TEXAS … JUSTICE SERVED!!!
A Texas dad will not be charged with homicide after beating the man to death he caught raping his 5 year old daughter. Charge him? They should have given him a medal. The 23 year-old father beat 47 year old Jesus Flores to death for molesting his five year old girl in a secluded barn. Under Texas law, an individual is allowed to use deadly force in order to stop an aggravated sexual assault or sexual assault. There might not be a more justifiable deadly force case ever. The dad ran toward his daughter’s screams, who had been dragged to a secluded out building. The father caught Flores in the act of raping his child, pulled Flores off his child and ‘inflicted several blows to the man’s head and neck area’. After having killed the dirt bag, the dad showed remorse and was sorry for beating the man to death. Kind of sad that the dad felt he needed to do this, maybe to prevent from being prosecuted. However, you have no need to feel sorry sir, you did what any parent would have done. Or should we say, better have done.
A Texas father who discovered a man raping his five-year-old daughter and beat him to death with his bare hands will not be charged with homicide under state law.
A Lavaca County grand jury decided not to press charges against the 23-year-old father in the June 9th death of Jesus Mora Flores, 47, who was killed inside a remote shack after he was caught molesting the young girl.
Under Texas state law, deadly force is authorized and indeed, justified in order to stop an aggravated sexual assault and coupled with the fact that the harrowing 911 calls made by the father back claims he even tried to save the pedophile’s life led to the grand jury’s decision.
Lavaca County sheriff’s deputies said that the father, whose name has not been released to protect the little girl’s identity, sent her and her brother to feed the family’s chickens.
The boy rushed back to tell his dad that someone had grabbed his sister and taken her to a small secluded shack and the father rushed towards his daughter’s screams and arrived to find them both with their underwear off.
Flying into a rage, the father beat Flores unconscious, but attempted to call 911 for the rapist after he had made sure his daughter was safe.
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.
8 Year Old Charish Lilly Perriwinkle Missing Since 6/21/13 in Jacksonville, FL … Abducted By Sex Offender Donald James Smith (Update: Girls Body Found at Church, Suspect Arrested)
An Amber Alert has been issued for 8 year old Charish Lilly Perriwinkle who has been missing since Friday night, June 21, 2013 in Jacksonville, Florida.

The police were contacted around 11 P.M. Friday night by the mother of Charish Lilly Perriwinkle at the Wal-Mart on 12100 Lem Turner Road regarding her missing daughter. First Coast reported, Sergeant Lonnie Mills of Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office said the child was taken by a man who had befriended the mother at the store and said he was taking the girl to the store’s McDonald’s outlet for a snack. HUH? Oh dear God, who does this in this day and age? Seriously folks, how in the hell do you allow yourself to be befriended by a total stranger and allow your 8 year old little girl to go off like this? What on earth was this mother thinking?
Charish Lilly Perriwinkle description: 4′ 3″-tall, 60-pound, white girl with hazel eyes and brown hair. She was wearing an orange sleeveless dress, a pink bandanna and purple flip-flops when she vanished from the Walmart off Lem Turner Road in Jacksonville, FL.
The mother of Charish Lilly Perriwinkle contacted cops at around 11 p.m., First Coast News reported. She told them she and her daughter were at the Walmart when a man befriended them, then disappeared with the little girl after saying he was going to take her to the store’s McDonald’s for a snack.
Police believe the kidnapper is 56-year-old sex offender Donald James Smith, who has previously served time for attempted kidnapping and lewd and lascivious assault on children, Jacksonville.com reported.
Anyone with information about the case should call the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at (904) 630-0500, the FDLE at 1-888-356-4774, or 911.
UPDATE I: The body of 8 year old Charish Lilly Perriwinkle found deceased at Highlands Baptist Church Saturday morning. Sex offender Donald James Smith has been taken into custody after officers surrounded a white van on southbound I-95 near the I-10 split. Donald James Smith is a registered sexual offender and was recently released from jail on May 31, 2013. Well that didn’t take long for this predator to escalate his depravity from attempted kidnapping and lewd and lascivious assault on children to kidnapping, probably rape and murder of a child. Smith has several previous arrests involving lewd behavior with children and has a registered address of 2495 Segovia Avenue.
WHEN ARE WE EVER GOING TO UNDERSTAND THAT THESE PREDATORS CANNOT CHANGE AND THEY ONLY ESCALATE THEIR DEPRAVITY TO THE EVENTUAL END … MURDER OF A PRECIOUS CHILD?
UPDATE II: From CNN, the unbelievable accounts that lead to the abduction of and murder of 8 year old Charish Lilly Perriwinkle. Personally, I am at a loss as to how any mother could allow their child to walk off with a complete stranger. I do not care what they bought you and were going to buy.
After the investigation revealed that the girl had been abducted, an Amber Alert was activated, Hartley said. He identified Smith, “a man with a very extensive criminal history” that included a kidnapping conviction, as a suspect.
Williams said the girl’s mother first met Smith on Friday night at a local Dollar General store, where he offered to take the family to Walmart to buy them some clothes.
“After being inside the store for a couple hours, the man then offered to buy some hamburgers,” Williams told reporters. “As he walked to the front of the store, he took our 8-year-old victim with him. They walked to the front of the Walmart toward the McDonald’s. They did not stop at the McDonald’s. They walked outside, got in his van and left the location.”
