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.

Vanderbilt rape victim releases statement:

“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!

Wendy Holland

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.

Gregory Graf, the Man Accused of Killing his Stepdaughter, Jessica Padgett, Videotaped Himself having Sex with Her Corpse (Necrophilia)

OH DEAR GOD, Just when you though humanity could not sink any lower … HELL HAS A NEW FUTURE MEMBER.

53 year old Gregory Graff had previously been arrested and charged with murdering his step daughter, Jessica Padgett. The police stated that Graf shot Jessica Padgett to death in what appears to be a sexual assault. Just when you thought this crime could not get any worse, it did. According to Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli, Gregory Graf videotaped himself having sex with his stepdaughter’s corpse. That is correct, this sick SOB killed 33 year old Jessica Padgett, a mother of three, so that he could have sex with her corpse.   What is going on in this world? Jessica Padgett had been missing since November 21 when she was last seen  her job  at the Duck Duck Goose Child Care center. Her body was found on the property of Gregory Graf.

They walk among us.

Gregory Graf

Since Graf has such a perverse fascination with death, I think we should send him there.

The man accused of killing his stepdaughter, Jessica Padgett, videotaped himself having sex with her corpse, Northampton County District Attorney John Morganelli said Friday.

He said the video confirmed what Gregory R. Graf told investigators on the day he was charged with homicide last month: that he wanted to have sex with Padgett, and that he did so after she was dead.

Morganelli said he had concluded Graf killed Padgett in order to have sex with her body.

Necrophilia is best described as sexual arousal stimulated by a dead body.

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, the standard classification of mental disorders used by mental health professionals in the United States, the criteria for necrophilia are the presence, over a period of at least six months, of recurrent and intense urges and sexually arousing fantasies involving corpses that are either acted upon or have been markedly distressing.

The condition is not curable, Berlin said, but can be managed with a combination of sexual appetite suppressing medication and therapy.

Morganelli disclosed on Friday that Graf allegedly made a video of himself engaged in several sex acts with Padgett’s body, saying it was clear from the images that she was dead.

Jessica Padgett – Rest in Peace

Gregory Graf was arrested after police found Jessica Padgett’s body on his property in Northampton County. Padgett, a mother and day care worker, had been missing since Friday.

The motive for the slaying appears to be sexual assault, District Attorney John Morganelli said. He didn’t elaborate.

Police began focusing on the 53-year-old Graf after he gave inconsistent statements following Padgett’s disappearance, he said. Graf later gave a statement admitting he fatally shot her, Morganelli said.

Padgett’s body was found buried behind a shed on the property where Graf lives with Padgett’s mother. The couple operates a fence company at the site.

Missing Mom Jessica Padgett Was Killed by Stepfather:

“During an interview with the investigators he [Graf] did admit that he intentionally and knowingly caused the death of the victim at his home,” Morganelli said, adding the crime may have been premeditated. Surveillance video shows a man prosecutors believe is Graf, dropping his truck off in the Dollar General parking lot Friday morning. Later in the day, Morganelli said Graf returned to the parking lot in Padgett’s SUV, parked it and drove off again in his truck.

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.

CNN:

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

Linkage of the three crimes against victims: Hannah Graham, Morgan Harrington and “RG”.

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.

19 Year Old Sean Johnson Arrested For Lewd Act With Stuffed Animal Inside Walmart Store in Brooksville, FL

WTF … Florida teen has sex with stuffed animal horse in WALMART.

The Smoking Gun is reporting that 19 year old Sean Johnson was arrested earlier this week for a lewd sex act with a stuffed animal in a Walmart in Brooksville, Florida. YIKES!!!  According to the police report,  Johnson took a brown, tan, and red stuffed horse from the clearance shelf, brought the unsuspecting stuffed animal to the comforter aisle in the housewares section, pull out his “Johnson” and proceeded to hump the stuffed horse until he, um finished.  The lewd act was captured by surveillance cameras.  Sean Johnson was charged with indecent exposure and criminal mischief and booked into the Hernando County jail. Imagine telling that story to the other folks in lockup? He was released from jail after posting $1500 bond. The stuffed animal could not be reached for comment.   In a written statement, Johnson admitted that,  he assaulted the stuffed animal and he added, “I need to think before what I do.” YA THINK!!! 

Sean Johnson

Perv: Sean Johnson … you just can’t make these names up.

Police report.

According to a police report, Sean Johnson, 19, “selected a brown, tan, and red stuffed horse from the clearance shelf in the garden department.” He then went to the comforter aisle in the housewares section, “proceeded to pull out his genitals,” and “proceeded to hump the stuffed horse utilizing short fast movements.” The lewd act was captured by surveillance cameras.

After Johnson “achieved an orgasm and ejaculated on the stuffed horse’s chest area,” he placed the “soiled stuffed horse on top of a bed in a bag (comforter set) contaminating that property also.”

While Johnson fled the store before he could be apprehended by Walmart security, he was subsequently arrested by Brooksville Police Department officers. In a written statement, Johnson admitted that, “I did unmentionables to a stuffed animal.” Noting that he committed a “horrible act,” Johnson added, “I need to think before what I do. I’m extremely sorry.”

EXIT QUESTION: This might have wound up being the most expensive stuffed animal on clearance ever in Walmart history. You mean this sick SOB could not have just purchased that damn item on clearance and taken it home to do whatever?

40 Year Old Tatanysha Hedman Arrested for Setting her 52 Year Old Husband Vincent Phillips on Fire After Catching Him Molesting Her 7 Year Old Daughter

Arrested, she should have been given a medal …

52 year old Vincent Phillips ran from his apartment and drove to a nearby Skyway convenience store screaming “I’m on fire!” Sounds like he is the victim, doesn’t it? However, appearances can be deceiving.  Phillips was doused with gasoline and set on fire by his wife,  40 year old Tatanysha Hedman. However, some one does not do something this extreme unless there is a real reason to set a Momma Bear off. It would appear that  Tatanysha Hedman  caught her husband molesting her 7 year old daughter.  Hedman said she did it because shooting him “was too nice.” Vincent Phillips is now facing sex crime charges.  However, the police also arrested Tatanysha Hedman and she has been booked into King County Jail for investigation of assault and arson woman suspected of setting husband on fire.

After a mother in Renton, Washington, caught her husband allegedly molesting her 7-year-old daughter, she apparently planned a violent revenge plot.

Tatanysha Hedman, 40, reportedly told police that she decided to douse her husband, Vincent Phillips, 52, in gasoline while he slept and then light him on fire.

She told police that simply shooting him would have been “too nice” given the circumstances.

Phillips reportedly ran into a nearby gas station seeking help after he was able to put himself out. The man was badly burned and had to be hospitalized in intensive care.

Phillips is also now facing sex crime charges involving the 7-year-old girl, who is his stepdaughter. The extent of his alleged crimes were unknown as of Wednesday afternoon.

This child sex offender should probably count his lucky stars and pray that his wife did not go Lorena Bobbitt on him.
