Twenty-five-year-old Jaimee Mendez of Swampscott was last heard from on Thursday. Family members say she called two friends, telling them she was with a male and felt uncomfortable.

“She was worried, she was freaked out, she was with this guy, he was acting weird, she wanted to get out of there,” said sister Alyssa Mendez. “The guy that she called went to pick her up and she never showed. And that’s it. That’s the last time anyone heard from her. Her phone’s been off, until they found her phone – they found her phone and her jacket, and her ID … in Salem.”

UPDATE I:  According to the missing woman’s sister and a law enforcement source, Jaimee Mendez last seen with a Level 3 sex offender.

A missing 25-year-old Swampscott woman was last seen with a Level 3 sex offender, according to the missing woman’s sister and a law enforcement source.

The search continued today for Jaimee Mendez with police reporting no new breaks in the case.

Her sister, Alyssa Mendez, 27, told the Herald Jaimee was wary of being with the man they later learned is a Level 3 sex offender.

UPDATE II: Sex offender admits being with missing Swampscott mother.

The sex offender who admitted being with missing Jaimee Mendez says, he doesn’t blame the family for looking for answers? Because a sex offender wouldn’t be the first place to look.

The level 3 sex offender who was reportedly the last person to see a missing Swampscott mother, said he has nothing to do with her disappearance.

The man said he last saw 25-year-old Jaimee Mendez walking away from his car during a drug deal.

The man told the Lynn Daily Item newspaper he didn’t blame the family for looking for answers.

UPDATE III: Sex Offender Jason Fleury denies involvement in case of missing Swampscott woman.

Jason Fleury insisted he did not kill Jaimee Mendez. Fleury stated he had no motive to hurt her. He said the last saw the woman walking away from his car after a drug deal. He said he believes the drug supplier is the person who knows what happened to Mendez.

The Level 3 sex offender with whom a missing Swampscott woman was reportedly last seen said he had nothing to do with her disappearance and last saw the woman walking away from his car after a drug deal.

“I didn’t hurt the girl. She and I are friends; unfortunately a little mom is missing, and I’m a Level 3 sex offender,” the man, Jason Fleury, told The Item in an exclusive interview Thursday. “I don’t blame [the family] for being angry, they’ve got to take blame on somebody and a Level 3 sex offender is a hell of a target.”

Fleury, who has not been charged in connection with the incident and has not been identified as a suspect by police, agreed to an interview after being approached outside of Lynn Police Headquarters on Thursday where police confirmed he had met with an officer but would not specify the reason for the meeting. Fleury said he had been interviewed by various police agencies three times and gave the same story on each occasion.

Fleury acknowledged he was with Mendez the night of her alleged disappearance. He said that Mendez was the go-between for him and a heroin dealer and, on the night of her disappearance, he picked up Mendez at 5:30 or 6 p.m. to buy drugs.

Fleury said they took the same trip they had taken twice before: Fleury said he would pick Mendez up at her Swampscott residence and drive her to the area of a Rite Aid on Lewis Street in Lynn. She would call somebody to arrange the drug deal when they arrived at the store, although Fleury said Mendez used his cell phone to make calls on Nov. 6 because hers was running out of battery power. He would then allegedly give her the money and she would bring him drugs. Fleury said he last saw Mendez walking away from his car at approximately 6:30 or 7 p.m. on Nov. 6.

UPDATE IV: Criminal history of sex offender Jason Fleury:

As for a criminal record that includes 22 cases in Lynn since 2002, according to court records, Fleury said he is a heroin addict and “petty criminal,” but not violent. He said he was convicted in Virginia in 1997 when he was 18 for having sex with a 13-year-old girl, and that he was designated a Level 3 sex offender after a conviction in 2007 for failing to register in Massachusetts. (The 1997 conviction is recorded on the sex offender registry website but does not cite the age of the victim). Fleury served six months in a house of correction for the 2007 conviction, according to a spokesperson for Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett.

UPDATE V: Divers search pond for missing Swampscott mother, Jaimee Mendez.

As Massachusetts State Police divers searched a pond along Route 107 in Lynn Tuesday, the family of a missing Swampscott woman said they believe she is dead.

Divers were looking for evidence connected to her disappearance at Floating Bridge Pond near the Salem line.

Stephen Howells – Nicole Vaisey

A New York couple arrested in the kidnapping of two Amish sisters may have planned to abduct more children.

St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells said Saturday that “there was the definite potential” of additional victims and that additional charges may be filed against Stephen Howells, 39, and Nicole Vaisey, 25.

The Hermon, N.Y., couple have been arraigned on charges they intended to physically harm or sexually abuse a 7-year-old and 12-year-old after abducting them from a roadside farm stand in northern New York State earlier this week.

Wells says the motive was “to take these girls from their home and victimize these girls.”

UPDATE I: Couple arrested in Amish kidnapping may have planned more abductions.

Wells says the motive was “to take these girls from their home and victimize these girls.”

The sheriff said Howells and Vaisey “were targeting opportunities” and did not necessarily grab the girls because they are Amish.

“There was a lot of thought process that went into this,” Wells said. “They were looking for opportunities to victimize.”

The St. Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office issued a statement late Friday saying the arrests of Howells and Vaisey “no doubt saved young children from future abuse.”

UPDATE II: Kidnap Suspects Sexually Assaulted Amish Girls, Officials Say

The two Amish sisters from northern New York who were kidnapped this week and then found safe a day later were sexually assaulted, the St. Lawrence County’s District Attorneys office told NBC News. Investigators believe suspects Stephen M. Howells II, 39, and Nicole F. Vaisey, 25 had planned the kidnapping using “coercion tactics” and knew ahead of time they wanted to take the girls, St. Lawrence County Sheriff Kevin Wells told reporters Saturday. Howells and Vaisey are being held without bail on first-degree kidnapping charges in the abduction and could face 25 years to life in prison if convicted. Wells added that “there was the definite potential” for additional victims, and the suspects could be hit with more charges.

UPDATE III: More Charges Expected Against child molesting scum bags Stephen Howells & Nicole Vaisey.

Expect more charges to be added to the first degree kidnapping for Stephen Howells and Nicole Vaisey. Look for sexual assault and rape charges as well. Hopefully these two sex offenders will be going away for life.

More charges are expected soon against a northern New York couple accused of kidnapping two young Amish sisters and sexually abusing them, a prosecutor said Sunday.

Computer hard drives and other potential evidence are still being collected Sunday from the home of Stephen Howells Jr. and Nicole Vaisey, said Mary Rain, district attorney for St. Lawrence County.

“I 100 percent expect more charges,” Rain told The Associated Press in a telephone interview. She said the new charges, which she would not detail, could come after she meets with police investigators Monday or at the hearing Thursday. It’s also possible prosecutors would have to wait for results from forensic tests.

Asked by the dispatcher if he had used any weapons, the father responded, “My foot and my fist.”

“He stood up and his pants were around his ankles and nothing else needed to be said,” the father added to the dispatcher. “I did whatever I got a right to do except I didn’t kill him.”

The father then advised the dispatcher to deploy paramedics. “Send an ambulance. He is going to need one.”

Samuel “Curt” Johnson III, SC Johnson Heir Pleads Guilty to Sexually Assaulting Teen … Sentenced to Misdemeanor, Fourth-Degree Sexual Assault

THERE CAN BE NO JUSTICE WHEN THE VICTIM DOES NOT WANT IT … 

Samuel “Curt” Johnson III, heir to the SC Johnson fortune, was convicted on Friday of sexually assaulting a teen. However, the felony was downgraded to a misdemeanor, fourth-degree sexual assault and disorderly conduct. Johnson was initially charged in 2011 with the repeated sexual assault of a child, that charge carries a maximum penalty of 40 years in prison and a $100,000 fine.  However, Judge Eugene Gasiorkiewicz sentenced Johnson to four months in jail and fined $6,000. Wow, $6,000, that is the equivalent of like 6 cents for this individual. However, the problem this time was not a lenient judge or lame prosecutor, it was the victim and her family. Neither the girl nor her mother wanted a case brought against Johnson, but the female victim did initially tell Racine County investigators that Johnson had inappropriate sexual contact with her 15 to 20 times, starting the summer after she finished sixth grade. She said Johnson exposed himself, fondled her under her clothes and kissed her breasts and elsewhere.

No_Justice

A Wisconsin billionaire pleaded guilty Friday to repeatedly sexually assaulting a teenage girl, a charge that prosecutors ended up downgrading from a felony to a misdemeanor after they said the victim and her family repeatedly refused to cooperate.

Samuel “Curt” Johnson III, whose family has run home-products giant SC Johnson for five generations, was convicted of fourth-degree sexual assault and disorderly conduct. He was sentenced to four months in jail, short of the one-year maximum. He was also fined $6,000.

In considering the sentence, Judge Eugene Gasiorkiewicz acknowledged that neither the girl nor her mother wanted a case brought against Johnson. Authorities only became aware of the allegations after the 59-year-old sought counseling at a clinic in Scottsdale, Arizona, where he made an undisclosed comment that triggered a mandatory report.

Sadly, this billionaire sex offender is going to get off with a slap on the wrist. Assistant District Attorney Robert Repischak said the victim and her mother refused to cooperate from the outset, leaving him a flimsy case at best. Repischak told reporters after the hearing, “I would have liked a chance to present the felony case to a jury. But given the state of the case, with little if any evidence, I did was I was able to do.”

Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Gilbert Brown Rules Serial Rapist, the “Pillowcase Rapist” Christopher Evans Hubbart, Be Released from Prison

WHAT IS THIS JUDGE THINKING!!! Do the rights of the law-abiding public ever supersede the rights of a serial rapist violent sexual predator? Honestly, who releases into the public a serial rapist?

Santa Clara County, California Superior Court Judge Gilbert Brown has done the unthinkable, he has ruled that Christopher Evans Hubbart, a serial rapist, be released from prison.  67 year old Christopher Evans Hubbart was dubbed the “Pillowcase Rapist” who sexually assaulted at least 40 women in the 1970′s and 1980′s; however, authorities believe the number of victims is closer to 100. He got his nickname by using a pillowcase to muffle the screams of some victims.  This serial, sexual predator admitted to raping and assaulting about 40 women between 1971 and 1982 and was sentenced to 16 years in prison. He was paroled in 1990 only to be arrested two months later for a new sexual assault. Hubbart was returned to prison until 1996.  Judge Gilbert Brown said Hubbart will resided at a home in the 2000 block of East Avenue R. WTF. This issue is that these sexual predators have to go some where when they get out. Hmm … how about Hell!!!

It is bad enough what this judge did, but how in the hell did any doctor deem this predator fixed and safe to be released into society? What part about a serial sex offender do they not get? These habitual, serial raping scumbags cannot be fixed.

Christopher Evans Hubbart

The so-called “Pillowcase Rapist” who attacked at least 40 women in the 1970s and 1980s will be freed and allowed to live in a remote Southern California desert area despite a host of vocal protests, a judge ordered Friday.

Christopher Evans Hubbart, 63, must be released from a state facility by July 7, Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Gilbert Brown ruled.

Hubbart will be permitted to rent a small house near Palmdale, some 45 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles.

“Now we are preparing for his arrival,” said District Attorney Jackie Lacey, who spent months fighting Hubbart’s release. “We will do everything within our authority to protect the residents of Los Angeles County from this dangerous predator.”

State Assemblyman Steve Fox:

Fox has proposed legislation which would require communities to be notified in advance of the release of sexually violent predators if they are being released to counties other than the one where they were sentenced, KTLA reports. The legislation, Assembly Bill 1607, passed the State Assembly on Friday.

UPDATE I: Christopher Evans Hubbart to be located in a remote part of Palmdale, about 60 miles north of Los Angeles, CA.

“I know he’s going to escalate and he’s not going to leave any witnesses behind,” Holbrook said. “He is going to prey on us like a cat, like a slimy rattlesnake.”

Hubbart must wear a GPS ankle monitor and will be transported to individual therapy sessions twice per week. He will be accompanied by a Liberty supervisor when he goes out in public for the first six months to a year, according to terms of his release.

The house (pictured, right) is located in a remote part of Palmdale, about 60 miles north of Los Angeles. He was ordered to Los Angeles County because of a state law that states a judge can send a sexually violent predator back to his “alleged county of domicile.”

“There’s no streetlights out here, the cell service doesn’t hardly work out here. What is this judge thinking?” Holbrook said.

UPDATE II: The People vs. Serial Rapist Christopher Evans Hubbart.

The PEOPLE, Plaintiff and Respondent,

Christopher Evans HUBBART, Defendant and Appellant.

WHEN THIS PREDATOR RAPES AND HE WILL RAPE AGAIN … THIS JUDGE AND MENTAL HEALTH DOCTORS SHOULD BE BROUGHT UP ON CHARGES.

US Supreme Court Sets Aside $3.4 Million Verdict for Child Porn Victim … SCOTUS Says: May Claim Damages from Every Person Caught with Illegal Images

The case was Paroline vs. United States:

The SCOTUS has setaside a$3.4 million verdict again a Texas man named Doyle Paroline. The 5-4 decision upholds part of the Violence Against Women Act which calls for restitution to victims of child pornography, but it has some up with a compromise position on how to set the monetary amount.  The SCOTUS majority opinion says those who possess the child porn images must pay something because they have contributed to the abuse. In essence, the Court ruled that a federal district court judge must calculate how much to assess against Paroline personally. The WAPO points out that the 5-4 decision was not the typical SCOTUS left-right split, which although the opinions were based on different rationals, at least issues like child porn are dealt with not along political lines.

SCOTUS

Victims of child pornography whose images of sexual abuse have circulated on the Internet may claim damages from every person caught with illegal images, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday.

But justices rejected the idea that a single person who possesses such images may be assessed the full amount due to the victim, setting aside a $3.4-million verdict against a Texas man in a favor of a woman whose childhood rape was photographed and widely circulated on the Internet.

The 5-4 decision upholds part of the Violence Against Women Act which calls for restitution to victims of child pornography, but it adopts a middle-ground position on how to set the amount.  It said those who possess the images must pay something because they have contributed to the abuse.

“It makes sense to spread the payment among a larger number of offenders in amounts more closely in proportion to their respective causal roles and their own circumstances,” said Justice Anthony Kennedy. “This would serve the twin goals of helping the victim achieve eventual restitution for all of her child pornography losses and impressing upon offenders the fact that child pornography crimes, even simple possession, affect real victims.”

His opinion in Paroline vs. United States leaves it to federal judges to decide on the proper amount in each case.

The case began when a young women using the name “Amy” learned the photos of her sexual abuse as an 8 year old child were circulating on the Internet. Sadly, it was her uncle, Eugene Zebroski, that was her abuser. Initially, a federal judge refused to order Paroline to pay restitution because there was no proof his offense caused or contributed to Amy’s abuse. However, a federal appeals court in New Orleans would overturn that decision and ruled for Amy and said Paroline was responsible for paying the full amount she had sought, a total of $3.4 million.

Paroline was among an estimated 71,000 people worldwide who viewed the attacks.

The full decisions can be read HERE.

Much, much more at the SCOTUS Blog, Opinion analysis: Dividing the duty to pay for child porn.

Each individual — among hundreds and maybe thousands — found guilty of keeping and looking at images of a child being sexually abused must pay the victim something more than a “trivial” sum, but none of them can be required to pay for all that the victim has lost, the Supreme Court ruled Wednesday in a five-to-four decision.

The ruling in the case of Paroline v. United States, settling a dispute among lower courts on a mandatory law of restitution to victims of child pornography, refused to establish a specific formula for allocating the financial blame, telling federal trial judges to “do their best,” with a few suggestions for starting points.  Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote the majority opinion.
