Vanderbilt University Rape Case: Cory Batey & Brandon Vandenburg Found Guilty of 16 Felonies, Including Aggravated Rape
TWO DOWN, TWO TO GO …
Former Vanderbilt University football players, 21 year old Brandon Vandenburg and 20 year old Cory Batey have been found guilty of 16 felonies, including several for aggravated rape in the sexual assault of a female student in a Vanderbilt dorm in June 2013. It took the jury just three hours to return guilty on all charges for both Batey and Vandenburg. Both individuals were convicted of four counts of aggravated rape, one count of attempted aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery. The trial took 12 days, but the jury deliberations took just a little more than 3 hours. The jury had their minds made up when lawyers were giving closing arguments. Their sentencing is scheduled for March 6, 2015.
These two idiots have ruined their lives with their poor and deviant decisions. They had the opportunity to attend Vanderbilt University, one of the best colleges in America and pissed it all away. Actions have consequences.
Look how the two convicted rapists have been polished up by their attorneys for court
Two former Vanderbilt football players were convicted on Tuesday of raping a fellow student in 2013 after a jury rejected claims that they were too drunk to know what they were doing and that a college culture of binge drinking and promiscuous sex should be blamed for the attack.
The jury deliberated for three hours before announcing its verdict against the two former players, Brandon Vandenburg and Cory Batey. Mr. Batey was stoic, staring ahead, and Mr. Vandenburg shook his head no, appearing stunned as the verdict was read. His father had an outburst and abruptly left the courtroom.
The victim, who was a 21-year-old neuroscience and economics major at the time of the attack, cried as each guilty verdict was announced.
Both men were convicted of four counts of aggravated rape, one count of attempted aggravated rape and two counts of aggravated sexual battery. They face decades in prison at their sentencing, scheduled for March 6.
“Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout this difficult process. I’m thankful that the criminal justice system will hold the defendants responsible for their violent crimes. The hard work of the law enforcement officers, prosecutors and victims’ advocates who dedicated so many months of their lives to this case has made justice possible.
I want to especially thank detective Jason Mayo, Sgt. Mike Shreeve, Detective Chad Gish, Deputy District Attorney Tom Thurman, Assistant District Attorneys Jan Norman and Roger Moore and victims’ advocates Wanda Swan, Lt. Rochelle Barrios and Teresa Shearon. You are my heroes and I am so proud of and grateful for each of you.
“I am also hopeful that the publicity this case has received will lead to a discussion of how we can end sexual violence on college campuses. Finally, I want to remind other victims of sexual violence: You are not alone. You are not to blame.”
Two other players, Jaborian McKenzie and Brandon Banks, were also accused in the rape. Both have pleaded not guilty and are awaiting trial.
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.

Indianapolis Colts LB Josh McNary Charged with Rape, Criminal Confinement with Bodily Injury and Battery (Update: Mc Nary Denied Allegations)
Another black eye for the NFL …
Indianapolis Colts linebacker Josh McNary has been charged with rape, criminal confinement with bodily injury and battery resulting in bodily injury stemming from an incident that occurred in the early morning hours of December 1, 2014. According to Fox 59, the victim told Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department (IMPD) sex crimes detectives that she met an unknown man at a downtown bar and went to his apartment when a fight broke out before McNary allegedly raped her. Talk about bad PR for the NFL. Ahead of the AFC Championship game between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts, the Colts brass, players and coaches have to deal with this alleged incident by one of their own. Some call it a distraction, we call it rape.
Indianapolis prosecutors have filed rape, criminal confinement with bodily injury and battery resulting in bodily injury charges against Indianapolis Colts linebacker Josh McNary.
Two Indianapolis police officers said a 29-year-old woman accused an unknown man of attacking her in the early morning hours of Dec. 1. That man later determined to be McNary.
According to the report, police determined the man was McNary after investigating a cellphone the woman claimed she took from the man’s apartment.
Court documents reveal that she said “I didn’t have the strength to push him off.” She also described “being in and out of consciousness.”
She took his cell phone when leaving his apartment.
A hospital examination revealed that the woman suffered injuries, including dried blood behind her ear. She told police she scratched her attacker. The victim told police that when she scratched McNary, he said, “Look what you did to me.”
Police used the cell phone to make the connection to McNary. When police arrived at his apartment, McNary told them, “I know why you are here.”
He said he preserved the bedding from the encounter and presented some of the woman’s clothing to police. McNary had also taken photos of the bedding, showing blood stains and other soiled areas.
Indianapolis Colts linebacker Joshua McNary denies the allegations that he raped a woman after a night of drinking at a Downtown bar.
On Thursday morning, McNary’s attorney, Edward F. Schrager, released the following statement on behalf of his client:
“Joshua McNary unhesitatingly denies all accusations made against him. Following the public release of these allegations, Joshua immediately reported to law enforcement officials in a respectful and peaceful manner.
“The charges and affidavit publicly disseminated on Wednesday afternoon are not evidence of wrongdoing, but simply one side’s story.”
The Indianapolis Colts have requested that commissioner NFL Roger Goodell immediately place linebacker Josh McNary on the League’s Commissioner Exemption list.
If the request is granted, McNary — who was charged on Wednesday with rape — would be ineligible to practice or attend games but would receive his playoff share of $44,000 for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game.
The NFL investigation is likely to follow, after which McNary could be suspended for a minimum of six games.
“That designation will permit the investigation provided by the League’s Personal Conduct Policy to run its course and will afford Josh the opportunity to focus on his defense against the charges,” the team said in a statement.

Suspect in the Hannah Graham & Morgan Harrington Case Jesse Matthew Pleads Not Guilty to the 2005 Sexual Assault of “RG” in Fairfax County, VA
Jesse Matthew, the suspect in Hannah Graham’s disappearance and the death of Morgan Harrington, appeared in court Friday to answer charges on another case of abduction and sexual assault from 2005. Jesse Matthew is facing three felony charges: attempted capital murder, abduction with intent to defile and sexual penetration with an object. Matthew’s plead “not guilty” to all three charges related to the September 2005 incident. The victim is only referred to as “RG”. Authorities state that on September 24, 2005, a 26 year-old woman was returning from a grocery store in the city of Fairfax when someone grabbed her from behind and sexually assaulted her. The victim was raped and beaten nearly to death and only spared because her attacker was scared off by a passer by.
At Friday’s court hearing, lawyers for the 32-year-old Matthew waived the hearing of the charges against him. But according to the indictment in the 2005 case, he “did feloniously, willfully, deliberately, intentionally and with premeditation attempt to kill (the victim) in the commission of or subsequent to an abduction with the intent to defile.”
The woman now lives in India and is prepared to fly to the United States to testify Commonwealth’s Attorney Ray Morrogh told reporters Friday.
The victim “RG” now lives in India; however, is ready to travel back to the United States and testify against her attacker in the upcoming trial, Fairfax County. Judge Dennis Smith set a trial date of March 9.
While he awaits the next legal steps in the death of University of Virginia student Hannah Graham, Jesse Matthew appeared in court Friday to answer charges on another case — an alleged abduction, sexual assault and attempted murder from nearly a decade ago.
During a brief appearance at the Fairfax County Courthouse in northern Virginia, Matthew only uttered two words — “Not guilty” — to all three charges related to the September 2005 incident.
Judge Dennis Smith set a trial date of March 9. The trial is expected to last six or seven days.
Authorities say that on September 24, 2005, a 26-year-old woman was returning from a grocery store in the city of Fairfax when someone grabbed her from behind and sexually assaulted her.
Linkage of the three cases of Hannah Graham murder … Morgan Harrington murder and “RG” sexual assault and attempted murder
Most recently, DNA recovered from underneath the fingernail of the sexual assault victim linked Matthew to the abduction of University of Virginia student, Hannah Graham.
Graham was last seen on Sept. 13 on surveillance video walking with Matthew in downtown Charlottesville. In October, remains found on an abandoned property on Old Lynchburg Road in Albemarle County were identified as those of Graham.
According to officials, forensic evidence linked to the Fairfax rape also links Matthew to the disappearance of Virginia Tech student Morgan Harrington.
Harrington was last seen leaving the John Paul Jones Arena in Charlottesville in 2009. Her remains were found in Albemarle County in January 2010. Harrington was from Roanoke County.

Conservative Radio Host Rush Limbaugh Threatened to Sue the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) for Defamation
According to The Daily Caller, Conservative Radio host Rush Limbaugh has threatened to sue the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) for defamation and interference. According to accounts, El Rushbo has retained the services of attorney Patty Glaser, who reportedly delivered a letter to the DCCC on Monday notifying the committee of the possibility of a lawsuit demanding a retraction and apology for intentionally misleading the public. Limbaugh is stating that the DCCC defamed him when they made statements attributed to Rush out of context by Democrat fundraising letters trying to ignite the liberal base. The PJ Tatler is spot on when they say, it is extremely difficult for a public figure to win a defamation case and there is none more public than Rush. However, Democrats have made a cottage industry out of try to defame Rush Limbaugh in the past, why would this be any different?
Limbaugh retained the services of lawyer Patty Glaser and demanded that the DCCC “preserve all records in anticipation of a lawsuit for defamation and interference” after the Democratic Party group led a campaign against Limbaugh based on out-of-context statements the host made about sexual assault. Limbaugh’s legal team delivered a letter to DCCC representatives Monday informing them of the legal threat. Limbaugh has also demanded a public retraction and apology.
The Limbaugh team is currently proceeding from the standpoint of litigating and has not yet made a decision as to whether the DCCC could make any concessions at this point to prevent the lawsuit.
The DCCC “has intentionally disseminated demonstrably false statements concerning Rush Limbaugh in a concerted effort to harm Mr. Limbaugh, and with reckless disregard for the resulting impact to small businesses across America that choose to advertise on his radio program” according to the GlaserWeil law firm’s letter to the DCCC, which was obtained by TheDC. “Mr. Limbaugh clearly, unambiguously, and emphatically condemned the notion that ‘no’ means ‘yes.’”
“Let’s be clear: Rush Limbaugh is advocating for the tolerance of rape” the DCCC stated in a September fundraising email after Limbaugh mocked Ohio State’s new mandatory sexual consent guidelines.
This is one law suit I very much hope goes forward.

What a future these fours teens have ahead of them …
Four teens, two 16 year old and two 15 year old boys face charges after videotaping themselves with their cell phones having sex with a 15 year old intoxicated and unconscious girl. According to police, the charge is preparation of an obscene video made using their cellphones. Two teens were students at South Rowan High School and the other from A.L. Brown High School. The video was not made on school grounds, but in a home where alcohol was present. According to an arrest warrant, the girl was intoxicated and unconscious when two 15-year-olds and two 16-year-old boys took turns making videos.

Wait a minute, am I missing something? Did the police not say that these boys had sex with an intoxicated and unconscious girl … how is this not sexual assault and rape as well? Also, it would be simple to determine who was sent the videos, would that not also be considered the crime of disseminating child porn? Hey Kanappolis DA … Wake the Hell up!!!
