Has the Church of England Learned Nothing from the Child Sex Abuse Scandals?

Top bishop’s diocese is under fire over a child sex abuse 'cover-up' after a trainee vicar raped two Christian girls 

Timothy Storey was jailed for 15 years for grooming girls on Facebook
'Arrogant' Reverend Hugh Valentine refused to give evidence in court 
Reverend Jeremy Crossley is also now facing disciplinary action
Richard Chartres, head of the London Diocese was urged to punished them but did not

By Simon Walters Political Editor For The Mail On Sunday

The London diocese, headed by the Bishop of London Richard Chartres (pictured) – the third most senior Church of England cleric – faced a call by the bishop’s own independent inquiry to consider punishing two priests criticised after a trainee vicar raped two Christian girls

One of Britain’s best-known bishops faced controversy last night after it emerged his diocese refused to punish two leading priests in a new church child sex abuse row.

The London diocese, headed by the Bishop of London Richard Chartres – the third most senior Church of England cleric – faced a call by the bishop’s own independent inquiry to consider punishing two priests criticised after a trainee vicar raped two Christian girls.

But the diocese did not take any action, saying it could cause further upset to the victims.

Oxford-educated Timothy Storey was jailed for 15 years last April after a court heard how he groomed hundreds of children on Facebook, using his position as children’s pastor to prey on ‘weak, insecure girls’.

Judge Philip Katz lambasted the ‘utterly incompetent failure’ of ‘arrogant’ church leaders to protect young girls – and accused them of a cover-up. Bishop Chartres apologised and set up an independent inquiry into the scandal. 

The Mail on Sunday has established that it was concluded five months ago.

Oxford-educated Timothy Storey was jailed for 15 years last April after a court heard how he groomed hundreds of children on Facebook

Its full contents were kept secret, but this newspaper can reveal the inquiry said both clerics should face disciplinary action – even though both had already been removed from their children’s supervisory roles. 

We can also disclose that the two clerics – identified in the report only as ‘clergy person A and B’ – are the Reverend Hugh Valentine and the Reverend Jeremy Crossley. 

Valentine was Bishop Chartres’s adviser on child protection during Storey’s reign of terror. The Storey trial judge criticised his ‘arrogance’ in refusing to give evidence.

Valentine has carried on as curate at St James’s Church, Westminster. In his sermon last Sunday, entitled Sexuality And Bishops, he accused the Church of treating gays and lesbians like ‘embarrassing relations’ and said religion had helped breed ‘hatred’, including ‘homophobia, misogyny and racism’.

Valentine also works for a young person’s charity, the Walcot Foundation. Crossley was Bishop Chartres’s director of ordinands, and is Rector at St Margaret Lothbury Church in the City of London.

During Storey’s trial, Judge Katz said the diocese was ‘stone deaf’ to complaints from the victims of self-confessed sex addict Storey, and ‘shamefully’ tried to shift the blame to police. Some of its leaders ‘seemed to be worried about the reputational damage to the diocese’.

Police praised the media for finally bringing Storey to justice.

We can also disclose that the two clerics –identified in the report only as ‘clergy person A and B’ – are the Reverend Hugh Valentine (left) and the Reverend Jeremy Crossley (right)

The review ordered by Bishop Chartres said the Church should ‘consider an investigation under the Clergy Disciplinary Measure’ (CDM) into Valentine and Crossley. It said the Church must face ‘the consequences’ of its blunders.

A spokesman for the diocese said: ‘Legal analysis concluded there were not sufficient grounds to pursue complaints under the CDM and any failed process would cause further pain to survivors.’

The survivors are in pain and will continue to be in pain for some time. Allowing Valentine and Crossley to continue as though nothing happened will do nothing but add to that pain. It appears the church does not understand this because the church is still putting the church above the children. It seems they do not know that the church is the people and covering up or ignoring the suffering of the people is hurting the church. Has the Church of England learned nothing in the child sex abuse scandals rocking Britain and Australia?

The decision followed an assessment by the diocesan safeguarding team, not the bishop.

13 Perverts on Today's P&P List - Many Get Big Sentences

Anchorage man gets 115-year sentence in lengthy child sex abuse case
Author: Jerzy Shedlock 

An Anchorage judge sentenced Keone Jason Lee, 33, to 115 years in prison for sexually abusing two young sisters who stayed with him in his camper trailer.

Lee was found guilty in September of 18 counts of sexual abuse of a minor in the first and second degrees, third-degree assault and child pornography possession. He was originally charged in August 2011.

According to a release from assistant attorney general Adam Alexander, the case was "difficult and resource intensive."

Lee invited a homeless family to stay in the camper he lived in, which was parked in his parents' driveway, prosecutors said. Lee opportunistically abused two girls in that family, ages 6 and 11, and he once threatened one of those girls with a sharpened sword, they said.

Alexander said Anchorage Superior Court Judge Jack Smith characterized Lee's crimes as "reprehensible" before imposing the flat, composite sentence of 115 years.

76-year-old man jailed on indictments from 2012 for child sex abuse
By Carol Robinson

A 76-year-old man is behind bars, nearly five years after he was indicted on child sex abuse charges in Jefferson County.

James Allen Willis, of Graysville, was arrested Feb. 10, according to court records made public this week. A Jefferson County grand jury indicted him in October of 2012 on two counts of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12.

Sheriff's deputies here were contacted by the guardian of the victim in February of 2012, said Chief Deputy Randy Christian. It was reported to investigators that Willis had been arrested in Pennsylvania for a sex offense involving a 9-year-old girl.

Detectives there contacted his family here as part of their investigation. They asked that the children be questioned about any inappropriate sexual contact that may have occurred while Willis was living in Alabama. It was during this inquiry, Christian said, that the guardian learned that a family member may have been a victim. The abuse occurred three years earlier.

Willis was sentenced to prison in Pennsylvania for offenses there. He was returned to Jefferson County one week ago to face the charges here. He remains in the Jefferson County Jail with bonds totaling $60,000.

LBI arrests Plaquemine man for alleged
child sex abuse
By Andrew Greenagreen@postsouth.com

The Louisiana Bureau of Investigation arrested Kord Ogden, 20, of Plaquemine on two counts of Sexual Abuse of Children (under the age of 13) and one count of Sexual Abuse Images of Children.

 The latter charge means the victims were 13 years of age or older, but still a juvenile.

The arrest came after an investigation between the LBI Cyber Crime Unit, Homeland Security Investigations, the Iberville Parish Sheriff's Office and Louisiana State Police.

Ogden was booked into Iberville Parish Jail.

"My office remains dedicated to investigating and arresting child predators," Attorney General Jeff Landry said. "We will leave no stone unturned in our pursuit of justice for perpetrators who victimize our children."

Sandoval indicted on several counts of
sexual abuse of a child
Posted by eParisExtra

This week Gregorio Sandoval was indicted on the following counts by a Lamar County Grand Jury; Sexual abuse of a child cont. <14 – C1, Aggravated sex of a child – C2 and C3, Indecency with a child by contact – C4, C5, C6, and C7.

The incident occurred on Tuesday November 7, 2016 when the Reno Police received a report from the  Lamar County Sheriff’s Office of a possible child sexual abuse case that appeared to have occurred in Reno.

With the help of the Child Protective Services, The Children’s Advocacy Center of Paris, and Lamar County Sheriff’s Office Reno Police were able to obtain a warrant for the arrest of the suspect in the case.

On Monday November 14, 2016 Reno Police served Sandoval with a warrant for Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child. He was arrested without incident and taken to Lamar County Jail.

Due to the age of the victim and the sensitive nature of this case, the victim’s name will not be released.

Aggravated sexual assault in Texas is considered a first degree felony. The minimum prison time imposed on a convicted defendant is increased to 25 years if the victim was six years of age at the time the offense occurred or the victim was younger than 14 years of age with any of the aggravating factors listed above present at the time of offense.

Nassar will stand trial on child sex abuse charges
By Christopher Lane

A judge has ruled there is enough evidence to bind former USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar over for trial on child sex abuse charges. 

Dr. Larry Nassar was in court today for his preliminary exam to decide if his case will go to trial. Dr. Nassar is accused of three counts of criminal sexual assault with a person younger than 13.

Aledo man gets life sentences in child sexual abuse
By Christin Coyne
An Aledo man received two life sentences Thursday after a Parker County jury found him guilty of repeatedly sexually abusing a girl. 

The conviction, on two counts of sexual assault of a child, was Joshua Eric Townley's second for sexual abuse of a child. 

District Judge Craig Towson ordered the automatic life sentences to be served one after the other, making Townley ineligible for parole until 2076. 

“We heard facts in this case that no one should have to hear,” Towson said after sentencing Townley. “Karma has no menu, you serve what you deserve. You did everything that you could to shroud your disturbing behavior in secrecy and in shadows. Once the light illuminated your secret, you denied your actions and blamed the victim. Books about children should end with a happily ever after. However, this book ended with a child living a nightmare cast by your dark soul.”

The girl, now 15, cried at times as she described the abuse in detail for jurors. 

The teen told jurors that Townley began molesting her when she was around 10 years old and the assaults became progressively worse over the years. 

Townley sexually abused her when others were not around, punishing her when she refused, the girl testified. 

He also demanded naked pictures of her, she said. 

Townley threatened to hurt her and her mother and brother if she told anyone, the girl told jurors. 

In January 2016, while on the way to school, the girl, shaking and crying, told her mother of the ongoing abuse, the girl and her mother testified. 

According to video presented to jurors, Townley admitted to Parker County Sheriff's Office investigator Josh Pitman that he had sexually abused the girl him several times when she was 13 and 14 years old because "she was curious."

Prosecutors also presented court records from the U.S. Navy showing that Townley was convicted years ago in a court martial proceeding of sexually assaulting a teenage girl. 

“There were two things in this case that stood out as being particularly egregious,” said Assistant District Attorney Jeff Swain, who tried the case for the prosecution with Assistant District Attorney Nikki Rhodes. “First of all, Mr. Townley sexually abused our victim repeatedly over a lengthy period, from when she was about 10 to 14 years old. Secondly, he had previously been court martialed while he was in the United States Navy for sexually assaulting another girl who was 14 and 15 years of age, for which he was sentenced to two years confinement.”

“Our law recognizes that repeat sex offenders deserve especially severe sentences,” Rhodes said. “Upon a jury finding that a defendant convicted of a sexual offense has been previously convicted of a sexual offense in Texas, another state, or in the federal system, that defendant automatically receives a sentence of life in prison.”

After the jury's findings, Towson ordered Townley's sentences to run consecutively rather than concurrently. 

“I am grateful for the seriousness with which this jury took this case and the fact that, in light of the repeated nature of the abuse in this case and the fact that the defendant had victimized another young girl, that Judge Towson stacked the sentences,” Swain said.

Prosecutors said Townley also faces aggravated sexual assault of a child charges in Johnson County, where the abuse began. 

Feds charge Sidney couple in sex abuse of toddler
Anthony Borrelli 

A Sidney man's alleged sexual acts against a child were tied to his methamphetamine addiction, prosecutors say, and his wife is also accused of participating in abuses that spanned almost two months.

Nearly a week after Justin Crandall, 28, and his wife, Jessica Crandall, 27, were arrested by state police, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Binghamton brought new federal criminal charges Friday against the Sidney couple tied to the alleged abuses against a 17-month-old girl. The Crandalls pleaded not guilty in U.S. District Court to felony counts of conspiracy to sexually exploit a child and sexual exploitation of a child.

If convicted, the defendants face up to 30 years in federal prison. Shackled in a courtroom during Friday's arraignment before Judge David Peebles, the Crandalls' faces remained expressionless as Assistant U.S. Attorney Miroslav Lovric said both defendants conspired to "sexually torture" the victim.

Court papers unsealed Friday describe the criminal investigation by state police and the FBI, as well as graphic details outlining alleged child sexual abuse that spanned from December to February

Law enforcement were alerted Feb. 11 after a witness reported receiving an image depicting a female toddler engaged in a sex act, which Justin Crandall had allegedly sent via cellphone, according to court papers. The child was being babysat by Jessica Crandall at the couple's Sidney residence, officials said.

Justin Crandall was then brought to the state police headquarters in Sidney to be interviewed by investigators.

In court papers, the FBI stated, "(Justin) Crandall admitted he touched the minor female child in a sexual manner while he was under the influence of methamphetamine. Specifically, when asked if he had engaged in 'sex' with the minor female child, (Crandall) asked to define term 'sex.'"

As a result, troopers charged him on Feb. 11 with felony counts of first-degree rape and promoting sexual performance by a child less than 17 years old, along with misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a child and seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance.

Investigators then learned from the child's mother that she had been babysat by the Crandalls since after Thanksgiving, court papers said. The mother noticed some changes in her child's behavior along with unexplained injuries, according to court papers.

On Monday, court papers say, Jessica Crandall was questioned by state police and she admitted she and her husband engaged in "repeated sexual activities" involving the child going back to the previous December.

Two out of 10 pages in federal court records tied to the case contain graphic details of the alleged abuses.

Jessica Crandall was charged by troopers on Monday with a felony count of first-degree criminal sexual act and a misdemeanor count of endangering the welfare of a child.

The charges unsealed Friday are being prosecuted separately from the state-level crimes by the U.S. Attorney's Office, which says the Crandalls also violated federal criminal laws in committing the alleged abuses.

A grand jury is expected to be convened soon to consider a federal indictment against the defendants, Lovric said Friday.

Justin and Jessica Crandall are being held in the Delaware County jail while awaiting further court proceedings.

Four child sexual abuse arrests made in Warrick Co.
Posted by Sean Edmondson

Lenis McClain, 64. 
 Jonathan Kent Roy, 26. 

Four men have been arrested in three unconnected child sexual abuse cases in Warrick County.

According to the sheriff's office, 64-year-old Lenis McClain, of Evansville was arrested Tuesday on child molesting charge. The sheriff's office says he is accused of molesting a child younger than ten years old.  We're told McClain was released from jail after posting a $10,000 cash bond.

Robert Owen, 38.
Justin Alexander Jarvis, 43.

On Wednesday, deputies arrested 26-year-old Jonathan Kent Roy, of Newburgh, on a warrant for a child molesting charge. Roy is accused molesting a child under the age of 14.  He is currently being held at the Warrick County Jail on $10,000 bond.

The sheriff's office says 43-year-old Justin Alexander Jarvis and 38-year-old Robert Owen, age 38, both of Newburgh, were also arrested Wednesday after a months-long investigation. 

Detectives received a report in October that a juvenile had been in a sexual relationship with Jarvis and Owen and that pornographic images were exchanged between the juvenile and at least one of the adults.

The sheriff's office says investigators searched the home of Jarvis and Owen in October and found "digital evidence" and illegal drugs.

Owen was arrested on two counts of sexual misconduct with a minor and was released after posting a $4,000 cash bond.

Jarvis is facing a long list of charges including two counts of sexual misconduct with a minor, three counts of child exploitation, possession of child pornography and various drug-related charges. We're told Jarvis was also released from the Warrick County Jail after posting a $4,000 cash bond.

Jarvis has been arrested before on another charge. That case was dropped.  

He is a former Political Director for the Vanderburgh County Democratic Party.

Carcana abused the child in 2014 and 2015, Parr wrote in an email.

Carcana was a friend of the child’s family, and the abuse happened in Carcana’s home, she said.

Jurors also recommended that Carcana pay a $40,000 fine.

He is scheduled to be formally sentenced by a judge June 12.

Dad Horrified to Find Vile Messages in Popular Game on Son's iPad

The former rugby league star said the disturbing messages in the virtual world “turned his stomach”

A mortified dad has expressed serious concerns over an online game – aimed at children - which allows strangers to contact and communicate with young kids.

Roblox, which markets itself as a gaming site for kids and teens, invites children into a virtual world to “create adventures, play games, role play and learn with their friends”.

It has more than 30 million unique monthly users - predominantly kids.

Dad Iain Morrison wants the chat facility on the site removed as it allows strangers to message kids directly.

The former rugby league player for Hull, England, claims the game – targeted at children aged 8 to 12 - is being used by adults to groom vulnerable youngsters after finding vile messages from a predator in the iPad game used by his eight-year-old son.

“I was asked to lay down on top of them and 
they started with sexual movements”

Mr Morrison decided to use the game - dubbed the new Minecraft – after reading a worrying article about it online, The Sun reported.

He asked his two boys, aged 8 and 11, if they used the game and they said they did, so he decided to check it out.

Shockingly within 15 minutes of playing the 33-year-old father was shown sexual positions, and told he was “sexy” and “cute”.

He said from the outside the game looked fine, but when he went into a room with a pool he was immediately “propositioned”.

“They said ‘hi’ so I said ‘hi’ and they asked if I was a boy or girl and my age so I said I was an eight-year-old boy,” he says.

“They asked me to follow them to their house, then into the bedroom and asked me to lay down on top of them and then they started with the sexual movements.

“They said ‘you look cute’ and ‘you look sexy’.

“It was sickening reading all the comments pop up. My kids were completely oblivious as to what the words and stuff meant.”

“He thought he was talking to friends from school”

The disturbed father-of-two has deleted the application from his boys’ iPad and encouraged others to do the same in a Facebook post.

“It’s full of ****** paedophiles if you ask me; it’s completely messed up; its turned my guts; anyways it’s deleted, off their computers forever, and I’d highly recommend you check your kids to see if they have it and get rid of it,” he warned.

His post was shared over 800 times, with other parents sharing similar stories.

One mum got rid of the app after a similar situation: “I have had this experience too, my seven-year-old stepson had this game and he had people asking him things. Game is banned, he thought he was talking to friends from school.”

Another mum said she removed it from her daughter’s iPad, after “an online safety course at the school told us about it”.

As mentioned in my previous post, there will always be perverts who can find a way to turn innocent children's toys into something obscene and despicable. The danger of pedophiles accessing your children increases every single day with every new bit of technology that comes out. 
Parents need to be extremely vigilant!

“This is something I’ve seen with my own eyes. It’s literally turned my stomach”

But his post had some people accusing Mr Morrison of scaremongering.

“Shame about the sick people who play the game, shouldn’t be shut down though the way people are carrying on,” one wrote.

“They should implement a moderating system within the game to prevent things like this happening. You just need to keep an extra eye on your kids.”

Mr Morrison said he “110 per cent thought it would be so easy for these people to use the game to groom kids”.

“This is something I’ve seen with my own eyes. It’s literally turned my stomach,” he says.

“I spoke to more than one of the weirdos within 15 minutes, if there is one or fifty on there, I couldn’t care less.”

 Roblox has published advice for parents on its website which details ways to keep kids safe

The game allows an account to block other users that may be harassing, bullying or spamming, regardless of age. For more information on this,  click here.

Roblox spokesman said the safety of its community was a top priority and they’re constantly assessing and improving our trust and safety measures.

The site has several safeguards including chat filtering where a system finds and flags inappropriate language.

For users that are under the age of 13, these filters are set to block any sharing of personal identifiable information.

“We continually fine tune this software to detect and block new and creative ways to message inappropriately,” he said.

The site also has optional friend filtering. All accounts for users that are under the age of 13 are set to only communicate with friends.

The spokesman said this is all backed up by a moderator network that uses an in-house team to review every image, audio, and video file that is uploaded to our site or into any of our games.

If users or their parents are witnessing any bad behaviour in the game, we urge them to flag the ‘abuse report’ function in the game so that these participants can be handled by the Roblox team.

If parents have questions or suggestions. They can email us at info@roblox.com.

Cayla Must Be Destroyed!

Parents warned to destroy ‘hackable’ talking dolls over child safety fears

The Cayla doll has raised data protection and privacy concerns across Europe. Screenshot from Google Play

Germany’s Federal Network Agency has issued a warning to parents to destroy a talking doll because hackers can use an embedded bluetooth device to talk to and listen to children.

The talking doll named ‘Cayla’, contains a microphone, speaker and connects to the internet to answer toddlers questions. But the doll has a sinister side, equivalent to a “concealed transmitting device,” warned the telecoms watchdog.

The doll’s smart technology allows it to respond to users questions by accessing the internet. The watchdog said, however, that this tech could be hijacked by specialists, compromising personal data.  

And, of course, we know that some pervert out there is going to find, or has already found a way to turn this child's toy in something sick and evil.

Germany has strict privacy laws to protect against surveillance. It is illegal to sell or possess a banned surveillance device. Violations are punishable by up to two years in jail.

The not-so-friendly doll has been the subject of complaints from consumer groups in both the US and Europe, arising from data protection and privacy concerns.

The bug, which would allow potential breaches to take place, was discovered more than two years ago, in 2015, but has yet to be fixed.  

Berlin's Underage Migrant Crime Wave Alleged

There are a lot of allegations here and not a lot of support for them.
Are they true? If you are from Berlin, please help me out here.
Is there a crime wave in parts of your city?
Can you blame it on migrant youth gangs?

By David Frankenhuis
Gatestone Europe

The German capital of Berlin today witnessed a meeting on the problem of criminally involved young asylum seekers, many of whom entered Germany as unaccompanied minors. Not only are the refugees committing acts of violence, but they traffic drugs and steal as well. Some migrants even sexually assault women “because, as a refugee, it’s hard to find a girlfriend,” or so they state in court.

Earlier police statistics had proved that Tunisians, Libyans, Moroccans, and Egyptians are among the most common perpetrators of violent street crimes. These often are, most cowardly, directed at members of ‘the weaker sex’. “The number of Arabic-speaking perpetrators is increasing rapidly,” the police had then said while pointing at the worrying trend that:

“boundaries between theft, robbery, personal violence and sexual abuse have become fluid.”

No-go zones for girls and women

With Kottbusser Tor, a Berlin neighbourhood, and other parts of Berlin turning into virtual no-go zones, at least for girls and women, even the left-wing politicians dominating the city are now spurred into action. The socialist SPD, together with the Green party, Berlin residents, and district authorities, this Friday decided on allocating 1 million euros extra on the problem, Der Tagesspiegel reports.

The question is, do girls and women know these zones are not safe? Is the city keeping this information quiet or are they warning girls to stay away? Are German girls being sacrificed on the altar of political correctness and stupidity as they are in Sweden? Is there a conspiracy of silence as there is in Sweden?

As a whole, including the ones who are not criminally involved, there are some 2,700 unaccompanied underage refugees in Berlin, already costing 100 to 200 million euros a year (on average, that comes down to an annual 55,000 euros per individual).

According to SPD Senator Sandra Scheeres, who is responsible for Berlin’s minor asylum seekers, the city’s regular social services are no longer suited to deal with some of the minor refugees. Her plans in part consist of strengthening public institutions who have to cope with the, often criminal, migrants. The proposal is supported by Monika Herrmann (Greens), who is the district mayor of Kreuzberg-Friedrichshain.

In an open letter, shopkeepers from Kottbusser Tor had earlier complained about the situation of lawlessness, that is partly caused by the unaccompanied youths, while at the same time reprimanding politically correct leftist activists and legislators:

“Inside these people exists a false fear that mentioning the situation could increase racism while, in fact, concealment and the hushing up of things cause all kind of suspicions.”

Recent cases

Yesterday, charges were pressed against a gang of Syrians and Libyans who, on Christmas eve, had tried to light a homeless man on fire in Berlin’s subway, a case that had shocked Germany.

About one month ago another newcomer, this time the young Pakistani asylum seeker Asif M., had to explain his actions in court, where he appeared on charges of raping one woman and the attempted rape of five others in the Berlin-Steglitz precinct. The 26-year-old justified his deeds by stating that:

 “as a refugee, it is difficult to find a girlfriend.”

Danish Man Ordered Rape of 346 Children in ‘Historic’ Livestream Sex Abuse Case

Sometimes you find a story that is so evil it just takes your breath away. This is one of them and not the first to come out of Denmark

The man, who allegedly ordered sex abuse of children, predominantly Filipino, over the internet and had them streamed to his computer, was charged on Wednesday with 346 counts of participating in sexual assaults or rapes of minors.

He was arrested in Copenhagen’s suburb of Brondby last February, and it took the prosecutors, in cooperation with cyber police, a whole year to collect and process all the evidence and to finally charge the suspect in this “historic scale case.”

“As far as I know we’ve never had a case in the whole world in which one person is charged with so many assaults,” Flemming Kaerside of the Danish National Police’s Cyber Crime Center said, according to The Local.

The indictment is reportedly a massive 119-page document, depicting quite disturbing details of the alleged acts of sexual abuse.

The suspect allegedly paid quite a modest sums to adults – usually not more than 280 kroner (approx. $40) – to have children sexually abused. Some instances involved parents molesting their own children, while in other cases minors were forced to perform sexual acts on each other.

In one case, a four-year-old girl was violated by her mother on demand of the alleged predator, while in another, a three year-old-girl was forced to perform oral sex on a five-year-old girl.

The hearings will begin on 28th February in Glostrup court and a ruling on this appalling case is expected in June.

It’s not the first time that pedophiles in Denmark have been caught not only ‘collecting’ child pornography, but actually ‘ordering’ it online. The main target for such predators are children from poor countries. It is, however, quite hard to provide evidence for such activities if perpetrators do not store recordings of sickening livestreams on their computers. In March 2015, ten people were arrested during investigation of a similar case, but nine of them were released almost immediately due to lack of evidence.

One of the trials, where a child abuse livestream connoisseur was actually convicted occurred in North Jutland in 2014. A man was sentenced to three-and-a-half years for ordering a number of rapes and assaults on Filipino children. The pedophile paid adults a sum between 20 and $40 to commit and livestream the crime.

Three and a half years is a joke for ordering the rape of several children! Did the judge give him a gold watch as well? He ordered children's rapes - what's the difference between that and actually raping children? Would he have gotten just 3 and a half years for raping several children. If so, Denmark might as well legalize child rape for all the good such sentences are going to do. This is just sickening. 

Ashton Kutcher Makes Emotional Appeal to US Senators to Tackle Child Sexual Abuse

Actor Ashton Kutcher has given an emotional speech to US senators as he called for more action to tackle child sexual abuse

Ashton Kucher at Senate hearings

The Hollywood star discussed progress in combating modern slavery in a hearing before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in Washington.

Kutcher, 39, co-founded the organisation Thorn: Digital Defenders of Children, which builds software to fight human trafficking.

The "Spotlight" tool, which Kutcher said has helped identify 6,000 victims in six months, was created after a 2012 sex trafficking survey found that 63 percent of underage victims reported being bought or sold online.

The visibly emotional actor - who has two young children with actress Mila Kunis - said: "I've been on FBI raids where I've seen things that no person should ever see.

"I've seen video content of a child that's the same age as mine being raped by an American man that was a sex tourist in Cambodia.

"And this child was so conditioned by her environment that she thought she was engaging in play."

Kutcher said his team received a call from the Department of Homeland Security asking for help to find a seven-year-old girl after footage of her being sexually abused was "spread around the dark web".

"She'd been abused for three years and they'd watched her for three years and they could not find the perpetrator, asking us for help," he said.

"We were the last line of defence. An actor and his foundation were the potential last line of defence.

"That's my day job and I'm sticking to it."

Kutcher's comments to the committee follows heightened scrutiny of classified advertising websites such as Backpage.com for carrying ads that offer children for commercial sex.

"Technology can be used to enable slavery, but it can also be used to disable slavery," said Kutcher.

300,000 American children at risk every year

Each year, up to 300,000 children are at risk of being trafficked for commercial sex in the United States, according to the U.S. Department of Justice.

Most sex trafficking victims are advertised or sold online, according to a US senate subcommittee report that was released last month.

Backpage.com was hit last week with the latest in a string of lawsuits that accuse the company of promoting sex trafficking by running and rewriting ads that offer children for commercial sex. 

In a more light-hearted moment at the hearing, Kutcher blew a kiss towards Republican senator and former US presidential candidate John McCain.

It came after McCain told the actor: "Ashton, you were better looking in the movies."

Perverts and Pedophiles Among Quebec's Indigenous Peoples

Indigenous Police Dragging Feet on Child Sexual Abuse Complaints in Quebec

Innu woman tells Radio-Canada's Enqûete Aboriginal police forces reluctant to investigate abuse allegations
By Salimah Shivji, CBC News 

Sylvane says the abuse began when she had just turned 13 and Mike McKenzie, who's now
the chief of Uashat-Maliotenam, was 26. (Radio-Canada)

Sylvane's Story

When Sylvane tried to file a police complaint last year against the chief of the small Innu community of Uashat-Maliotenam for allegedly sexually abusing her when she was a teenager, she ran into a roadblock.

"The Aboriginal police didn't want to take my complaint because they said he's the chief right now," she told Radio-Canada's investigative program, Enquête.

Sylvane — whose last name, like those of several other women interviewed for this report, CBC/Radio-Canada has agreed to conceal — alleges the abuse started in June 2000, soon after her 13th birthday, when the current chief, Mike McKenzie, was 26.

"He gave me drugs, he made me drink. But in exchange, I always had to give him sex," she told Radio-Canada.

She persisted in trying to report the alleged abuse, turning to the provincial police, who told her they couldn't intervene unless they were asked to by the local Indigenous police force. Eventually, after she got help from a lawyer, the provincial police did step in and launched an investigation.

In June 2016, charges of sexual assault and sexual touching were laid against McKenzie, with the preliminary inquiry set to begin Friday.

McKenzie maintains his innocence.

'He gave me drugs, he made me drink.
But in exchange, I always had to give him sex.'

When the charges were laid, the chief stepped down temporarily. But he returned to work after a two-month absence, saying he was democratically elected and felt it was important to fulfil his duties.

"What message does that send in our community?" said Lise Jourdain, a friend who reached out to Sylvane when she heard about the allegations. "Don't touch the chief, but you can touch a 12-year-old child."

Jenny's Story

Jenny, another Innu woman from the same community on Quebec's North Shore, 900 kilometres northeast of Montreal, said her five-year-old son was being abused by the teenaged son of a babysitter, beginning in 2009.

She said she complained to local police when she learned about the abuse in 2011, but the abuse continued even after police interviewed her son about his allegations. The interview was conducted by an officer with the community's Aboriginal police force in French instead of in the son's native Innu.

In all, Jenny said she made four complaints to police without result. 

After she went to police for the fourth time, Jenny took her son to hospital for an examination when police failed to do so. She said she was told the forensic rape kit done at the hospital was lost. However, Enquête learned it was transmitted to police, but it had never been sent to a Montreal lab to be tested.

No charges have been brought against the alleged abuser.

The Crown prosecutor's office reviewed the file twice and determined the law was applied as it should be, because of the "young age" of the boy, "his difficulties in describing the facts and his confusion at what happened."

Quebec's public security minister has just launched an internal ethics probe into how police handled the case.

'Politicized' police?

Many Indigenous communities in Quebec are policed by a local squad that falls under the band council's jurisdiction.

"It will always remain a local police, a politicized police force," said Maurice Tassé, a former Sûreté du Québec officer who once headed a now-defunct regional Indigenous police force before it was disbanded in 2000 due to lack of resources.

'What message does that send in our community?
Don't touch the chief, but you can touch a 12-year-old child.'
- Lise Jourdain, member of the Innu community of Uashat-Maliotenam

In fact, all of the questions Enqûete sent to the Uashat-Maliotenam Police Service were referred to the band council, which had promised to respond.

But the council's executive director failed to show up to two meetings with Radio-Canada journalists to respond to the allegations.

Struggling for justice amid backlash, Nicole's Story

A third woman, Nicole, told Radio-Canada she had to wait 10 long years, some of them in self-imposed exile from her Atikamekw community, 400 kilometres north of Montreal, before she saw the man whom she accused of abusing her as a child sent to prison.

Jean-Paul Néashish, a former head of the Wemotaci First Nation Police Force, was sentenced to six years in prison last October for sexually assaulting five women over a 40-year period. He continues to maintain his innocence and calls his accusers liars.

As she waited for the case to wind through the courts, Nicole had to grapple with the belief of others in Wemotaci that she was lying.

"All that time, that's what I was struggling with. I lived in fear — full of stress and hatred of it all."

Sylvane said she faced a similar backlash.

"A lot of people bullied me on Facebook. [They wrote]: 'We don't believe her,'" Sylvane said of the months after she went public about the alleged abuse. "When I saw that, I became even more discouraged."

Danielle's Story

Another Innu woman from Uashat-Maliotenam, Danielle St-Onge, says she witnessed last fall just how dismissive the wider Indigenous community was of her experience as a victim of childhood sexual abuse.

This award was given to Léo St-Onge by a First Nations suicide prevention group two months after he pleaded guilty to gross indecency against a minor in a case brought forward by his niece. (Radio-Canada)

Her uncle, Léo St-Onge, pleaded guilty to gross indecency against a minor last summer. Despite his guilty plea, he maintained his innocence, saying he acted on the recommendation of his lawyer. He was given a conditional discharge, however, his name now appears on the sexual offenders registry.

Two months after he pleaded guilty, St-Onge was honoured by an Aboriginal suicide prevention group for his work helping women, a move that shocked his 54-year-old niece.

"He was commended, and I was discredited," Danielle St-Onge said of the pain she felt when she found out her uncle had been honoured.

The organization later apologized and rescinded the award.
