#FindSamantha: 13 Year Old Samantha Dodson Missing Since 12/3/13 in Oregon City, OR (Endangered Runaway … Believed to be with 40 Year Old Kelsey McCune)(Update: Samantha Dodson Found Safe, McCune Arrested Charged with Rape & Sodomy)
13 year old Samantha Dodson has been missing since December 3, 2013 in Oregon City, Oregon. Samantha Dodson was last seen Tuesday night and may be traveling with a 40-year-old transient man, Kelsey McCune. Samantha’s parents noticed she was missing Wednesday morning, when they went to wake her up to go to school. Authorities consider Samantha an endangered runaway. Two two might be camping. Because what else would a transient be doing who has no known address? McCune has no known address, but he is known to make money doing freelance computer work and he also may be carrying large duffel bags and backpacks with camping gear.

Police called the teen an “endangered runaway” and said she may be in the company of Kelsey McCune, 40, a family friend who authorities said has no permanent address.
It was unclear if the teen left home willingly; however police said she does not have a history of running away.
Dodson, who recently dyed her hair red, was described by police as 5-foot-4 and 125 pounds with brown eyes and a slim build.
Police said McCune is 6 feet tall and 170 pounds with a glass eye and salt-and-pepper hair.
According to FOX 12-OR, 40 year old Kelsey McCune is a long time friend of the family … of course he is. Because there is nothing more special than parents not realizing that a 40 year old, so-called friend of the family, is taking just a little too much interest in your 13 year old daughter!
The Dodson family says McCune is a family friend.
“Kelsey is a family friend of my parents. I met him a couple times in passing, but they’ve known him for years, and I know he was recently down on his luck,” said Sarah Dodson.
Samantha’s family now believes the teen and McCune had been communicating without anyone knowing. When they tried to confront McCune about it Wednesday, they say he wouldn’t return their calls, and won’t answer his messages.
“It’s my understanding that Kelsey doesn’t have a permanent residence, and we think they could be looking for a place to camp because there’s not a place to take her,” said Sarah Dodson.
The search for Samantha stretched to the Newell Creek area of Oregon City on Thursday, where a SWAT team scoured the terrain in the area.
Clackamas County deputies say they consider Samantha an endangered runaway mainly because of the age difference between her and McCune. They are also concerned about Samantha’s welfare because of the record-cold temperatures expected this week.
#FindSamantha: More pics of Samantha Dodson … Be on the look out for the missing 13 year old
Samantha Dodson, a missing 13-year-old Oregon City girl, was found in good condition in a wooded area north of an Oregon mobile home park Saturday evening, deputies said.
Deputies and the SWAT team resumed the search for Dodson around 4:30 p.m. after getting what they called a “credible” tip from a witness Saturday who saw her and 40-year-old Kelsey McCune near South Maple Lane Road and South Country Village Drive, said Sgt. Nate Thompson with the Clackamas County Sheriff’s Office.
McCune was also found in good condition Saturday, Thompson said. He was arrested and charged with kidnapping, sexual abuse, and rape. He was booked overnight in the Clackamas County Jail.
A vile one-eyed drifter busted by Oregon police for allegedly kidnapping and raping a teenage girl that went missing last week appeared in court Monday.
Kelsey (Patrick) McCune made his first court appearance in Oregon City while facing charges of first-degree kidnapping, custodial interference, sodomy, second-degree sexual abuse and rape.
Looks like FSU Football is not Duke Lacrosse …
Willie Meggs, the state attorney for the Second Judicial Circuit will not charge Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston with the rape of a female FSU student. The prosecutor basically said that there was not enough evidence to pursue the rape charges. However, this case could be brought forward in the future if other evidence arises. Looks like the Seminoles get to keep their QB for the ACC Championship game, get to keep their all but certain Heisman Trophy winner and their spot in the BCS National Championship game. I will ask this one question that I am very suspect of … How did it take a year for this to become an active investigation of an alleged rape that took place on on Dec. 7, 2012? State prosecutor in Tallahassee, Willie Meggs, when he made the announcement this afternoon commented, that the decision was not driven “by any Heisman demands or football schedule.” Hmm. then why say it?
Nearly one year after Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston was accused of rape by a female FSU student, the state attorney has decided not to charge the Heisman Trophy favorite.
Thursday’s decision clears the way for him to finish the season with the No. 1 Seminoles.
Willie Meggs, the state attorney for the Second Judicial Circuit, formally announced the move during a news conference Thursday at the Leon County Courthouse. Winston had faced felony charges after being accused of sexually assaulting the woman at an off-campus apartment on Dec. 7, 2012.
“We’ve carefully examined all the evidence in this case and have concluded that no charges will be filed against anyone in this case,” Meggs said.
“We have a duty as prosecutors to determine if each case has a reasonable likelihood of conviction,” Meggs said. “After reviewing the facts in this case, we do not feel that we can reach those burdens.”
While the case could be reopened if new evidence was found, Meggs indicated that “he had no earthly idea what that would be.”
The woman who accused Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston of sexual assault says she worries her experience and how the case unfolded in the public eye will discourage rape victims from coming forward.
The victim and her family released a brief statement Thursday after State Attorney Willie Meggs told reporters he did not have enough evidence to charge Winston. Meggs says the woman’s memory lapses about the events of last December were problematic.
Grand Jury Indicts Four School Employees (Steubenville City Schools Superintendent Michael McVey, Elementary School Principal Lynnett Gorman, Wrestling Coach Seth Fluharty & Assistant Football Coach Matt Belardine) in 2012 Rape of a 16 Year Old Girl in Steubenville, OH
Stunning indictment of four Steubenville, Ohio school employees in 2012 rape case …
The grand jury that was investigating the 2012 rape of a 16 year old girl in Steubenville, Ohio, has indicted four school employees, including the Steubenville City Schools Superintendent Michael McVey, Elementary School principal Lynnett Gorman, wrestling coach Seth Fluharty and volunteer assistant football coach Matt Belardine. In March 2013, two Steubenville High School football players, Ma’lik Richmond and Trenton Mays, were convicted of the rape of a 16 year old girl.
At a press conference today, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine said it was time to make adults responsible as well. He stated, “This began as the rape of a 16 year old girl, a horrible crime of violence. But it also represents blurred, stretched, and distorted boundaries of right and wrong.” DeWine went on to say, “While this started out being about the kids, it is also just as much about the parents, about the grown-ups, about the adults. How do you hold kids accountable if you don’t hold the adults accountable?” Great question and one that needs to be answered!
Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announces the indictments at presser … “While this started out being about the kids, It is also just as much about the parents.”
A grand jury investigating the 2012 rape of a 16-year-old girl in Steubenville, Ohio, has indicted four school employees, including the school superintendent, who faces felony charges, Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine announced Monday.

Also indicted was elementary school principal Lynnett Gorman and wrestling coach Seth Fluharty, both of whom are charged with misdemeanor failure to report child abuse. Volunteer assistant Steubenville football coach Matt Belardine was charged with four misdemeanors: allowing underage drinking, obstructing official business, making a false statement and contributing to the unruliness or delinquency of a child.
RH Reality Check has an incitement piece regarding the rape and the atmosphere surrounding the heinous crime asks the all important question, ‘Could New Steubenville Indictments Send a Message to Communities About Dealing With Rape?’
Jackie Neal, San Antonio Police Officer Sexually Assaults Teenage Girl in the Back of His Squad Car After Pulling Her over for Traffic Stop and Hand Cuffing Her
11 year veteran police officer gives Stop & Frisk a real bad name after committing an “unthinkable” sex crime … However, all the signs were there that this cop was a predator.
For all the fantastic, brave and heroic police officers that protect and serve us, there is always a small percentage of bad apples that give the men and woman in blue a black eye. You are about to meet one of them that should soon go from cop to con. 40 year old Jackie Neal, a San Antonio, TX police officer has been arrested on a felony charge of sexual assault. Jackie Len Neal, an 11 year veteran, is accused of raping a 19 year old girl in the back of his squad car, but not before he placing her in handcuffs after stopping her on a traffic violation at 2am Friday. Neal was released on $20,000 bond. How absolutely sick is it that an individual who is supposed to protect women from rapist scum, turns out to be one himself. Have a good time in prison!
A San Antonio police officer was arrested Saturday and accused of raping a 19-year-old woman on the South Side early the day before. At a news conference Saturday, police said the officer has been accused of sexual assault before.
Jackie Len Neal, 40, was arrested on a charge of felony sexual assault, said Officer Javier Salazar, a Police Department spokesman. Neal was released on $20,000 bond.
Police said he will continue to receive pay, pending an indictment.
Neal is accused of handcuffing and raping a woman he pulled over while on duty around 2 a.m. Friday.
Police Chief William McManus said a different woman made a similar complaint against Neal a few years ago. The date of that incident was not immediately available.
But this was not the first time that Neal has been in trouble or accused of sexual assault. Police Chief William McManus said another woman made a similar complaint against Neal a few years ago but because she later refused to cooperate in a police investigation, it was not pursued and there were no consequences for Neal at the time. More recently, Neal was suspended in September for three days for dating an 18 year old member of the Police Explorer program about two years ago. Officers are forbidden from fraternizing with members of the program for people 14 to 21 years old. Interesting that it took as long as it did for Neal to finally get a slap on the wrist. However, one would also think that these incidents should have raised a red flag are required a little more than changing him to the graveyard shift.
From false rape accuser to murderer …
34 year old Crystal Mangum was found guilty of second degree murder by a jury on Friday in the stabbing death of her boyfriend, Reginald Daye. Mangum stabbed her boyfriend, Reginald Daye on April 3, 2011, in which 10 days later died from complications. Mangum claimed the stabbing was a case of self-defense; however, the jury did not believe her. She was sentenced to between 14 years and 18 years in prison. It is simply amazing how some people seem to just not be able to stay out of trouble. In 2006, Crysta Mangum falsely claimed Duke lacrosse players gang-raped her at a team party where she was hired as a stripper.
The woman who falsely accused three Duke University lacrosse players of rape was convicted of second-degree murder Friday in the stabbing death of her boyfriend.
The jury deliberated for about six hours over two days before reaching its verdict in the trial of 34-year-old Crystal Mangum, who was sentenced to between 14 years and 18 years in prison.
Killed was 46-year-old Reginald Daye, who was stabbed on April 3, 2011. He died of complications 10 days later.
“That’s the jury’s vote,” Meier said. “At least it wasn’t first-degree. I still thought it was self-defense or, in the worst case, manslaughter. But the jury must have found malice.”
Assistant District Attorney Charlene Franks said the prosecution was satisfied with the verdict.
“It’s up to the jury, and we’re satisfied with what the jury did,” she said. “They felt that justice was required in this case.”

UNSPEAKABLE ACTS TO SAY THE LEAST …
A Massachusetts grand jury has indicted 14 year old Philip Chism on charges of murder, aggravated rape and armed robbery in the heinous and horrific death of his algebra teacher, Colleen Ritzer. According to prosecutors, under the aggravated rape and armed robbery indictments, Chism was charged as a youthful offender, but they will move to join those charges with the murder case in Superior Court. Philip Chism robbed, raped and murdered 24 year old Colleen Ritzer at Danvers High School.
On October 22, 2013, Phillip Chism followed Ritzer in to the the girl’s bathroom of the high school with a box cutter he brought to school and killed her. Chism punched and raped Ritzer before ultimately killing her, then robbed her of her credit cared and iPhone, then discareded her body outside the school. Sick, just sick!
Citing Massachusetts law, prosecutors said they would ask that Chism be tried in an adult court.
“The indictments … detail horrific and unspeakable acts,” said District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett.
The armed robbery indictment alleges that Chism, armed with a box cutter, robbed Ritzer of credit cards, an iPhone and her underwear. The aggravated rape indictment alleges that he sexually assaulted her with an object.
Under the aggravated rape and armed robbery indictments, Chism was charged as a youthful offender, but prosecutors said they will move to join those charges with the murder case in Superior Court.
Fire up “sparky” for this one, any one capable of this should not be allowed to walk among us, or anyone.
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.
32 Year Old Anthony Brinkman Arrested at Missouri Cracker Barrel over Craigslist Ad Seeking to Beat & Rape His 11 Year Old Daughter … Charged with Statutory Sodomy
OH DEAR GOD!!!
32 year old Anthony Brinkman of Cuba, Missouri was arrested at a Cracker Barrel after having solicited on Craig’s List an undercover police officer to rape and beat his 11 year old daughter while he watched. Not only did this POS put an ad on Craig’s List, he actually brought his daughter to the Cracker Barrel for the meet up. Thank God it was an undercover officer! As St. Louis County Detective Mike Slaughter said at the press conference on Monday, “If we hadn’t gotten involved and someone bad had gotten in touch with him, something bad would have happened to that little girl.” It is not known whether the 11 year old girl had been previously sexually assaulted by Brinkman, however, a further investigation is underway. Police have seized Brinkman’s computers and are awaiting the results of a forensic analysis. Anthony Brinkman is charged with attempted statutory sodomy and he is being held on a $100,000 cash-only bond.
An undercover officer posing as a 27-year-old woman then responded to Brinkman. He told her he wanted the woman to be his girlfriend as well as participate with him in sexually assaulting the child with sex toys, Slaughter said. He also said he wanted her to help find a boyfriend for the child, Slaughter said.
Thankfully, some one had contacted the Missouri Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force that Brinkman had posted the Craigslist ad. Personally, I would like to know why Craig’s List is not supposed to police their own websites.
A Missouri father was arrested last week after he showed up at a Cracker Barrel to meet an undercover officer who he had contacted on Craigslist about beating and raping his 11-year-old daughter.
At a press conference on Monday, St. Louis County Detective Mike Slaughter said that it took a lot to shock detectives who investigate Internet predators, but they just couldn’t believe it when 32-year-old Anthony Brinkman came to the restaurant with the young girl that he expected them to assault.
“It’s just a lot of talk for most of these guys, but this guy actually brought (the girl) to the scene to go ahead with the next step of enacting it,” Slaughter explained. “If we hadn’t gotten involved and someone bad had gotten in touch with him, something bad would have happened to that little girl.”
I guess it is not just food stamps that are for sale on Craig’s List these days.
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.”
