Finally After 25 Years, Michael Taylor Executed in Missouri for the 1989 Kidnap, Rape & Murder of 15 Year Old Ann Harrison in Kansas City
IT’S ABOUT TIME … GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBISH!
47 year old Michael Taylor was finally put to death and pronounced dead Wednesday, February 26, 2014 at 12: 10 a.m. at the state prison in Bonne Terre, Missouri. Taylor was executed for the 1989 rape and murder of 15 year old Ann Harrison, as the Kansas City teen waited for the school bus. 1989!!! Are you kidding that it took 25 years for the appeals process to run their course before this rapist/murder was given the death penalty? UNREAL! There is some thing serious wrong with a legal system that takes a quarter of a century to provide justice. Isn’t it amazing, sickening, that we have a system that is more concerned with how the convicted murderers die than the victim?
Om March 22, 1989 Michael Taylor and Roderick Nunley abducted Ann Harrison as she waited for the school bus in her driveway, pulled her into a stolen car, took her to a home, raped her and then fatally stabbed Harrison as she pleaded for her life. Roderick Nunley has also been sentenced to death.
A Missouri inmate was executed early Wednesday for abducting, raping and killing a Kansas City teenager as she waited for her school bus in 1989, marking the state’s fourth lethal injection in as many months.
Michael Taylor, 47, was pronounced dead at 12: 10 a.m. at the state prison in Bonne Terre. Federal courts and the governor had refused last-minute appeals from his attorneys, who argued that the execution drug purchased from a compounding pharmacy could have caused Taylor inhuman pain and suffering.
Taylor offered no final statement, though he mouthed silent words to his parents, clergymen and other relatives who witnessed his death. As the process began, he took two deep breaths before closing his eyes for the last time. There were no obvious signs of distress.
“Ann was a very loving, caring, innocent young girl. She loved her sports, she loved her music, most of all she loved her family,” her uncle Paul Harrison said.
With the killers still making headlines, the hurt is still there for the family.
“It just brings back a lot of bad memories. It’s also justice being served,” Paul said.
Of course Michael Taylor’s defense attorneys questioned the execution drug purchased from a compounding pharmacy that could have caused Taylor inhuman pain and suffering and looked for a stay. Thankfully, U.S. District Judge Beth Phillips and the Eighth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied several petitions on Tuesday night for a last minute stay or further judicial review and fustice was finally served after 25 years. However, the best rebuttal to that ridiculous comment came from Pete Edlund, the retired Kansas City police detective who led the investigation into the teenager’s death who said, “Cruel and unusual punishment would be if we killed them the same way they killed Annie Harrison. Get a damn rope, string them up, put them in the gas chamber. Whatever it takes.”
The rest of the city may remember her as the girl kidnapped from in front of her house while waiting for the school bus.
But to her friends, who have grown into women with careers and children of their own, she is forever in their thoughts as that smiling, pretty, brown-haired girl who loved softball and music.
“Ann deserves to be remembered for the wonderful spirit that she was, and continues to be, for her family, friends and community,” said Tina Thomasee.
Next month, on the anniversary of her death, friends are planning a ceremony to commemorate her life.
Barrett and Ann shared classes. They played on the same softball team, coached by Ann’s father, and they were bandmates. Ann played the flute, and Barrett wonders if Ann would have pursued a career in music.
“She loved playing the flute,” Barrett said. “She was really good.”
Ann’s death was a life-altering event for Barrett and other children who knew her.
“It just wasn’t in my realm of possibility at that age,” she said.
Previously, they rode their bikes around the neighborhood and walked everywhere without worry.
“After that, no more,” she said. “It changed the way I think of the world.”
Former New Orleans Saints NFL Player Darren Sharper Charged with Drugging & Raping Two Women in Los Angeles, CA
ANOTHER NFL PLAYER FINDS HIMSELF IN DEEP TROUBLE WITH THE LAW …
38 year old Darren Sharper, former New Orleans Saints football standout, was charged Friday with the drugging and raping of two woman in Los Angeles, California. According to court papers filed by the LA district attorney’s office, one rape occurred in October 2013 and the other January 2014. Prosecutors charged Sharper with two counts of rape by use of drugs, four counts of furnishing a controlled substance and one count of possession of a controlled substance, all felonies. Darren Sharper is also accused of possessing morphine and zolpidem (Ambien). In both rapes, Sharper is accused of a similar patters of meeting women, inviting them to his hotel room and drugging them with an “Ambien and morphine” cocktail and then sexually assaulting them after they passed out.
Former Saints star safety Darren Sharper was charged Friday with drugging and raping two women in Los Angeles, one in October and one in January, according to a complaint filed by the L.A. district attorney’s office.
In both incidents Sharper is accused of following a similar pattern of raping women whom he had invited to his hotel room and given them liquid shots possibly containing Ambien and morphine, causing them to pass out, prosecutors said.
Sharper, 38, is currently being investigated in a rape case in New Orleans, and L.A. prosecutors revealed Friday that he is also being investigated for rapes in Arizona and Nevada. His attorney in New Orleans has maintained his innocence.
The criminal felony complaint can be read in full HERE.
According to a May 2009 peer-reviewed medical journal article, Ambien, a sleep-promoter and muscle-relaxer, is commonly used as a “knock-out drug” among criminals because of its rapid onset within 10 to 30 minutes. The drug causes memory loss and it can only be detected for a short time after it is ingested.
From the penthouse to the out house, or should we say, jail house. Darren Sharper played for the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings and Saints from 1997-2010. He was a six-time NFL All-Pro and a member of the NFL 2000′s All-Decade Team.
Darren Sharper is suspected of committing seven rapes and 11 acts of drugging someone in four states, according to a Friday court filing by the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office. The cases include two in which charges were filed Friday accusing the former New Orleans Saints star safety with two drugging-rapes in Los Angeles.
The filings Friday included a narrative by a Los Angeles Police Department detective of the cases in other states, including New Orleans, in which Sharper is suspected of additional drugging-rapes. The filing revealed that analysis of the rape kit in the New Orleans case found Sharper’s DNA in the alleged victim, who reported blacking out after accepting a drink from Sharper.

Could There Finally Be a Break in the 1975 Case if Missing 12 Year Old Sheila Lyon & 10 Year Old Sister Kate Lyon … Looking at Convicted Sex Offender Lloyd Lee Welch Jr
Could there finally be a break in the 40 year old missing persons case of sisters Sheila and Katherine Lyon?
Twelve year old Sheila Lyon and her 10 year old sister Katherine went missing March 25, 1975 while walking home from Wheaton Plaza in Kensington, Maryland. 40 years ago, several witnesses, including the girls’ older brother, saw the two girls inside the shopping mall before their disappearance. An extensive search and investigation ensued, but the two girls were never found nor heard from and no one had ever been charged in the case. Now after all this time, the police belive they may finally have a break in the case. Authorities have identified a “person of interest in the 40 year old Lyon’s missing person’s case … he is 57 year old Lloyd Lee Welch, an already convicted sex offender.
Person of Interest, Convicted Sex Offender Lloyd Lee Welch Jr.
Pic – (Montgomery County police)
Welch traveled extensively throughout the United States from the 1970s through the mid-90s, authorities said. He worked as a ride operator for a carnival company, which often set up at malls. He has a criminal history that includes arrests in several different states for sexual offenses against young girls, according to the station.
The two little girls vanished nearly 40 years ago, their disappearance long faded from the public consciousness, their names etched in a stone marker their hope-sapped parents placed in a local cemetery.
But Maryland police have been tenacious about solving this cold case. And on Tuesday they breathed new life into it, when they announced a possible breakthrough.
Convicted sex offender Lloyd Lee Welch Jr., 57, who’s been serving a prison sentence in Delaware since 1997, was near Sheila and Katherine Lyon on that March day in 1975 when they went missing, Montgomery County Police Chief J. Thomas Manger told reporters Tuesday.
Welch was at a plaza that was among the last places that the two girls were seen alive, and he was observed paying attention to the sisters, Manger said. He declined to state how police obtained this lead.
Old case file documents show that a young girl who was with the Lyon sisters that afternoon had described a man who followed the three of them that day. Police developed a sketch partly based on that description, they said. It resembles a mug shot taken of Welch a few years later — in 1977 — when he was arrested in a burglary case in Montgomery.
Welch went on to assault girls in South Carolina and Delaware, where he is in prison, police said. The details of the Delaware case are not clear, but court papers show that he pleaded guilty in 1998 to several sex offenses. Officials said he is due to be set free in 2027 but has asked for early release. The Board of Pardons has scheduled a hearing for July.
Welch’s niece, Debbie Roe, 38, of Dover, Del., said she is the only member of the family who is in regular contact with him. She said she has written letters on and off to him for the past 13 years during his incarceration. She described him as “sweet” and said he is excited when she visits him in prison.
She said that Welch has denied involvement in the disappearance of the Lyon girls but told her that he was at Wheaton Plaza that day.

Democrats Courting the Felony Vote … Atty Gen. Eric Holder Urges States to Lift Bans on Felons’ Voting
Obama administration looks to get the “felon” vote …
Hmm, do you think those that would abduct and abuse a child the right to vote? Do you think child rapists should have the right to vote? Do you think that child murderers should have the right to vote? Do you think individuals who would partake in the human and sex trafficking of minors and adults should have the right to vote? Do you think an individual that would physically assault a woman, rape and molest a woman and murder a woman the right to vote? Barack Obama’s AG Eric Holder does. So who really has a war on woman and children?
Why would anyone want a man like convicted child rapist Eric Bradley or anyone like him who had the ability to be paroled, a commuted sentence or serving time the right yo vote ever!!!
Convicted Child rapist Eric Bradly
Imagine this, Attorney General Eric Holder is urging states to lift bans on laws that make it illegal for felons to vote. Of course this has nothing to do with the studies that show that felons who have been denied the right to vote were far more likely to have voted for Democrats than for Republicans. Of course Holder has no authority to change such law as this is a State’s right to pass their own voting laws, but far be it from the Obama administration to over-extend their Constitutional authority. This request by Holder is most likely a non-starter and going nowhere, but that will not stop Holder and the Obama administration to use another issue to be divisive along racial lines. This is just more gutter politics from the Obama administration looking to scrape up any vote they can from the bottom of the barrel.
Really? We do not have voter ID laws in the United States to make sure that there is not voter fraud going on in elections, but instead Eric Holder wants to allow felons to vote after they have served their sentence. Truth be told, he probably would not care if they had the right to vote while they were serving time in prison. Its an Obama world.
Hmm, Holder wants felons to vote but thought the above NBPP thugs did nothing wrong with voter intimidation
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. called Tuesday for the repeal of laws that prohibit millions of felons from voting, underscoring the Obama administration’s determination to elevate issues of criminal justice and race in the president’s second term and create a lasting civil rights legacy.
In a speech at Georgetown University, Mr. Holder described today’s prohibitions — which in some cases bar those convicted from voting for life — as a vestige of the racist policies of the South after the Civil War, when states used the criminal justice system to keep blacks from fully participating in society.
“Those swept up in this system too often had their rights rescinded, their dignity diminished, and the full measure of their citizenship revoked for the rest of their lives,” Mr. Holder said. “They could not vote.”
Mr. Holder has no authority to enact the changes he called for, given that states establish the rules under which people can vote. And state Republican leaders made clear that Mr. Holder’s remarks, made to a receptive audience at a civil rights conference, would not move them.
Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. on Tuesday urged states to repeal laws that prohibit felons from voting, a move that would restore the right to vote to millions of people.
The call was mostly symbolic — Mr. Holder has no authority to enact these changes himself — but it marked the attorney general’s latest effort to eliminate laws that he says disproportionately keep minorities from the polls. “It is unwise, it is unjust, and it is not in keeping with our democratic values,” Mr. Holder said at civil rights conference at Georgetown University. These laws deserve to be not only reconsidered, but repealed.”
African-Americans represent more than a third of the estimated 5.8 million people who are prohibited from voting, according to the Sentencing Project, a research group that favors more liberal sentencing policies. And in Florida, Kentucky, and Virginia, more than one in five African-Americans has lost the right to vote.
Former NFL Defensive Back Darren Sharper Faces Two Rape Charges in Los Angeles, CA … NFL Network Suspends Sharper
38 year old former NFL defensive back Darren Sharper was arrested Friday and charged with two counts of rape in Los Angeles, California. According to LAPD’s ‘s sexual assault section of its robbery-homicide unit, Sharper has been “linked to two sexual assaults in West Los Angeles” that allegedly happened in October 2013 and this month. Sharper was freed from jail after posting a $200,000 bond. The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department web site shows that Sharper was arrested and booked Friday on a felony charge. He faces a February 14 court appearance. Darren Sharper is also being investigated for a sexual assault that allegedly happened in New Orleans on September 24, 2013.
Sharper, 38, was arrested Friday afternoon by the Los Angeles Police Department’s sexual assault section of its robbery-homicide unit, according to LAPD spokeswoman Sally Madera.
The Miami Beach, Florida, resident has been “linked to two sexual assaults in west Los Angeles” that allegedly happened in October 2013 and this month, an LAPD news release said.
Madera said the charges concern California Penal Code 261(A)(30). The code section involves a rape “where a person is prevented from resisting by any intoxicating or anesthetic substance, or any controlled substance, and this condition was known, or reasonably should have been known by the accused.”
The NFL network has suspended analyst Darren Sharper without pay in the wake of the arrest.
“Darren has been suspended without pay until further notice, effective immediately,” said Alex Riethmiller, a spokesman for NFL Network.
Other troubles for for Sharper in New Orleans, NOPD confirms local sex assault probe.
In New Orleans, police said they received a report of sexual assault on Sept. 24, and the case remains open. Sharper, 38, who lives in Miami, has not been arrested or charged in that probe.
“As with every case alleging sexual assault, information gathered is extremely sensitive, and the top priority of the detectives is to protect the person who filed the complaint,” NOPD spokeswoman Remi Braden said in a written statement. “Because this is an ongoing criminal investigation, we cannot provide additional information at this time.”
NOPD referred the case to the Orleans Parish District Attorney’s office for review. “That case is presently under investigation by our office, and pursuant to office policy, we don’t comment on open investigations,” said Assistant District Attorney Christopher Bowman, the office spokesman.
Teenage Girl at the Center of the Maryville, Mo. Rape Case Daisy Coleman Hospitalized after Suicide Attempt … Cyber-Bullied to Commit Suicide (Update: No Rape Charges for Matt Barnett)
More cyber-bullying leads to attempted suicide of Maryville rape victim …
Daisy Coleman, the female teen at the center of the Maryville, MO rape case has been hospitalized after an overdose suicide attempt. The Missouri teenager alleged in 2012 that she and another friend were sexual assaulted at a house party when they were ages 14 and 13. The firestorm and cyber-bullying that ensued was enormous. The case gained national attention and the “hacktivist” group Anonymous came to her aid and mounted a call for action in the case as it appeared it was being glossed over. The 16 year old girl is now at the Kansas City children’s psychiatric hospital after ingesting an unidentified amount of pills Sunday evening. The news of Daisy’s attempted suicide was released by her mother, Melinda Coleman, in a Facebook post.
A Maryville Mo., teenager, who has been at the center of a rape case which made national headlines, was in a Kansas City hospital on Monday night after attempting to take her own life.
Daisy Coleman is the teen who claimed to have been raped by two high school students when she was 14 years old. Her family has accused prosecutors of dismissing her claims.
The rape accusations made by Daisy and her family subjected them to harassment from several Maryville community members, including both parents and students. The case eventually caught national attention.
Melinda Coleman also begged cyber ‘hacktivist’ organization Anonymous, which showed support for her daughter late last year when the story was in the headlines, not to abandon the case after she said they failed to follow up on any of her leads.
‘Where is anonymous now?’ Dr Coleman wrote on Facebook Monday. ‘My daughter has been terrorized to the point she tried to kill herself last night. She may never be ok. Where are you and your super hacking skills and internet help now…….we really need them.’
Coleman was 14 in January of 2012, when the 17-year-old son of Republican state representative plied her and a 13-year-old friend with alcohol and then had sex with the semi-conscious girls. The assailant, Matthew Barnett, recorded the alleged assault on his phone, then left Coleman unconscious on her family’s frozen front lawn in Maryville, Missouri.
Barnett was arrested and charged in the case and confessed to police that he and his high school football teammates had sexual relations with the girls. He maintained that the girls were intoxicated, but awake, and that the sex and taping were consensual. Weeks after his arrest, all charges against Barnett were dismissed.
The Kansas City Star: Daisy Coleman, teen at center of Maryville sexual assault case, is recovering after suicide attempt.
The case centered on a January 2012 house party in which Daisy Coleman and a friend — ages 14 and 13 at the time — alleged they were sexually assaulted at the home of Matthew Barnett, then a 17-year-old Maryville High senior and the grandson of a former state representative.
Barnett was arrested on charges of sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child, the latter for allegedly leaving Coleman incapacitated by alcohol and barefoot in her yard in 30-degree temperatures.
Also, 17-year-old Jordan Zech was charged with sexual exploitation of a minor, which involved using a friend’s cellphone to film a portion of the encounter between Coleman and Barnett. (The case of a 15-year-old boy, who admitted having intercourse with the younger girl despite her repeated refusals, was handled in juvenile court.)
Two months later, however, Nodaway County prosecutor Robert Rice dropped the felony charges against the two older youths, citing a lack of evidence and, later, a lack of cooperation on the part of the alleged victims’ families.
Currently the alleged rape case is being reviewed by a special prosecutor after initial charges against boys were dropped.
A special prosecutor appointed in a controversial case of an alleged rape in Maryville, Missouri, promised on Monday to review the case “without fear and without favor.”
“I know that this case has raised a variety of concerns in northwest Missouri, so please know this: This case will be thoroughly reviewed,” Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker said.
“I can also assure you that politics, connections or any other reason you can think of will not play a role in our review of this case. It will be the evidence, as it is in every case that we review,” she said.
A judge appointed Baker as special prosecutor days after a different prosecutor, who dropped charges, said he’d request the move.
UPDATE I: Dead rabbits have been dumped in Paige Parkhurst’s family car as fellow Maryville rape victim Daisy Coleman attempts suicide
UPDATE II: No Rape Charges for Suspect in Daisy Coleman Rape case … pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor child endangerment. (bumped from 1/8/14 – 5:48 am)
A Missouri man accused of sexually assaulting a 14-year-old schoolmate when he was 17 was charged Thursday with a misdemeanor child endangerment charge.
The charge against 19-year-old Matt Barnett was filed in Nodaway County Court in Maryville. He is scheduled to be arraigned later Thursday. His lawyer, J.R. Hobbs, didn’t immediately respond to a phone message seeking comment.
Two years probation and no jail time?
A Missouri man pleaded guilty Thursday to a second-degree misdemeanor charge of endangering the welfare of a child in connection with a highly publicized sex assault case involving a teenage girl, a prosecutor said.
Matthew Barnett, 19, was sentenced to two years’ probation.
Prosecutors said Barnett, then 17, gave alcohol to his victim, Daisy Coleman, until she was impaired, and left her outside her home in temperatures below freezing during the early morning hours of January 8, 2012.
26 Year Old Father Jonathan Adleta Given Two Life Sentences for Henious Sex Crimes Against His Own Kids … “This defendant is guilty of … the destruction and scarring of his own children.” (Update: Mother Sentnced to 54 Years on Child Porn Charges)
Finally, a judge with some common sense hands down a sentence where the sex predator will never touch another innocent child again.
The following sex crimes case might be one of the sick and most egregious ever seen in the Sunshine state. A father who, along with his wife, planned before the they were born to sexually abuse their children
26 year old Jonathan Adleta, a sex predator and deviant like we hope we never see again, was sentenced to two life terms in prison in Orlando, Florida federal court for the unthinkable and “heinous” sex crime against his two children and the child of another woman. Jonathan Adleta had been convicted in September 2013 of transporting minors across a state line to engage in a sex act and conspiracy. Upon handing down the sentence ti this monster, U.S. District Judge Roy B. Dalton Jr. said of Jonathan Adleta, “this defendant is guilty of … the destruction and scarring of his own children.” His wife. 29 year old Sarah Adleta, who took part in the sexual abuse, was sentenced to 54 years in prison. She pleaded guilty to producing child pornography with her children as subjects.
Parents Plan Sexual Abuse – Most Vile Story Ever
An Orlando jury convicted Adleta on Sept. 12 of two charges: transporting minors across a state line to engage in a sex act and conspiracy.
On Monday, Dalton handed down two life sentences. He could have given Adleta as little as five years. Instead, he went with the government’s recommendation.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Karen Gable described Adleta’s acts as “despicable and egregious. … The defendant is a grave danger to children.”
The judge agreed, saying he chose two life terms, in part, because he believes Adleta would offend again.
“This defendant is guilty of the sexual exploitation of his own children,” Dalton said.
Evidence at Adleta’s trial showed that he abused his son and daughter and the child of another woman, children who ranged in age from 1 to 4.
To make matters worse, if possible after the hideous crimes of this scum bag, after the Adletas’ marriage ended, Jonathan found a new girlfriend, Samantha Bryant, who also had a daughter. Samantha Bryant told jurors at Adleta’s trial that she let him molest her daughter, too. OMG, HOW DOES A MOTHER LET A MAN MOLEST THEIR CHILDREN!!! Bryant was also charged with and pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting her daughter and allowing him to abuse the girl.
A man whose parenting plan was detailed during a graphic child-sex trial in Orlando federal court this year will soon learn how much prison time he will serve for his crimes.
His ex-wife, 29-year-old Sarah Adleta, served as a key witness for prosecutors, explaining how having sex with their two children was part of their family parenting plan — even after they divorced.
Prosecutors said Jonathan Adleta had a “sexual appetite” for his own daughter and dreamed of the day when he could have “daddy-daughter sex.”

6 Year Old Boy Accused of Raping His 5 Year Old Female Cousin in Malaysia After Two were Playing ‘Mother & Father Game’
UMM, what every happened to 5 and 6 year old children playing with blocks?
A six year old boy is being accused of raping his five year old female cousin in Malaysia after the two had been playing the game, ‘mother and father’. OMG, YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING!!! How is this even possible? The bizarre situation came to light after the children’s grandmother found them naked and playing ‘mothers and fathers’ at the family home. The rape case believed to be the one of the first of its kind in the worls, let alone Malaysia. First, it would be nearly impossible to believe that a 6 year old boy had the intent of rape and knew what the heck he was doing. However, one has to wonder where the 6 year old boy and 5 year old girl learned or saw what they had done.
File this one under, what happened to the
country world I grew up is?
A Malaysian boy aged six has been accused of raping his five-year-old cousin in a case believed to be the one of the first of its kind in the world.
Doctors discovered she had been sexually penetrated after a medical check-up – and despite initial scepticism a consultant urologist at the Kuala Lumpur Hospital said it was possible for a child that young to have an erection.
The extraordinary case came to light after the children’s grandmother found them naked and playing ‘mothers and fathers’ at the family home in the town of Pendang, Kedah – a rural area covered with paddy fields
‘Blame should be levelled at the adults who do not give guidance and care to the children.’
He added that a full medical report would determine whether the six year old boy is the youngest predator in the country.
The case comes just weeks after a boy of 11 allegedly raped a six-year-old girl at a babysitter’s home in Alor Gajah.
31 Year Old Married, English Teacher Lauren Harrington-Cooper at Wyoming Valley West High School in PA Arrested & Charged with Institutional Sexual Assault
31 year old Lauren Harrington-Cooper, a married, English teacher at the Wyoming Valley West High School in Plymouth, Pennsylvania has been charged with institutional sexual assault for having sex with an unidentified 18 year old male senior. The parents of the alleged victim discovered their son had a “sexually explicit conversation” with a teacher after he borrowed his mother’s laptop and used the free texting website Pinger. Institutional sexual assault occurs when a school employees and volunteers, can be charged with the crime if they have sex or indecent contact with wards of the institutions or students at the school. Rather interesting that this can occur with two individuals of consenting age. Lauren Harrington-Cooper faces a possible prison sentence of seven years if convicted.
The age of the alleged victim, an unidentified male senior, was not included in arrest papers filed Thursday night. His age explains why the teacher was not charged with statutory sexual assault or corruption of minors.
A victim must be under 16 for statutory sexual assault and under 18 for corruption of minors, Roberts explained. The age of consent in Pennsylvania is 16, and a defendant charged with statutory sexual assault must be four or more years older than the victim.
Institutional sexual assault is a third-degree felony, Roberts said. Certain employees of specific institutions, such as school employees and volunteers, can be charged with the crime if they have sex or indecent contact with wards of the institutions or students at the school. The charge can result in a prison sentence of seven years.
The student’s parents went to the high school Thursday afternoon and told Principal Erin Keating they discovered inappropriate text messages between their son and a female teacher identified as Lauren, having Crohn’s disease, being a vegetarian and teaching eighth period in Room 401, which led school administration to identify the teacher as Harrington-Cooper.
According to the victim, his sister told him Harrington-Cooper texted her that her brother was “hot.” He said he got Harrington-Cooper’s cellphone number from his sister and later that day started texting her and they agreed to hang out, the complaint says.
The victim told police Harrington-Cooper would pick him up and she performed oral sex on him three times and that they had intercourse twice, according to the complaint.
Harrington-Cooper told investigators she began texting the student on Dec. 13 and knew he was a senior in high school. She allegedly admitted to having sexual relations with the student, all of which occurred in her vehicle, the complaint says.
SICK, SICK, SICK: There are crimes and then there are crimes that send you straight to Hell …
18 year old Andrew Bullock has been arrested for the sick, heinous and brutal assault and rape of an elderly nun Aliquippa, PA at the St. Titus Catholic Roman Church on Franklin Avenue. The sexual assault took place in brood daylight at 11:30 am as this piece of garbage savagely beat, choked punched and raped an 85 year old nun in the parking lot behind the church. UNREAL. The woman was taken to Allegheny General Hospital with a broken jaw and cuts and had to undergo surgery.
Andrew Bullock of Aliquippa has been charged with felony rape, aggravated assault and sexual assault, and misdemeanor charges of indecent exposure, simple assault and reckless endangerment, according to court documents. Bullock remains in the Beaver County Prison on $50,000 bond.
Andrew Bullock, of Orchard Street, faces at least 10 charges in the Friday morning attack.
The nun serves at St. Titus Church on Franklin Avenue.
She was walking in a parking lot behind the church when she was approached by a man who choked her, punched her, then threw her to the ground where she was assaulted and raped.
Assistant Chief Dan Couch told KDKA’s Kym Gable, “The first thing you notice when you look up up where this horrific act occurred, is the statue of the Virgin Mary looking down.”
Couch told Gable the savage beating outraged officers in his department.
I give the police officers of Aliquippa, PA a lot of credit as I would not have blamed them one bit for have had Bullock slip on several pieces of ice on the way to the police station and court. Also, a note to Andrew Bullock … Satan will be the one with the pitchfork.
