Clearfield man accused of making child pornography,
child sex abuse
LORETTA PARK, Standard-Examiner Staff

CLEARFIELD, Utah — A 54-year-old Clearfield man is accused of child sex abuse, making child pornography and uploading it onto the internet, according to a probable cause statement.

The state’s Attorney General’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force (ICAC) booked Markedward Dale Eakin in the Davis County Jail on Wednesday, Dec. 28, for multiple felonies. The Davis County Attorney’s Office is reviewing the case before filing formal charges with 2nd District Court.

Eakin was booked on four counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, first-degree felonies; eight counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, second-degree felonies; and four counts of dealing in harmful material.

According to the document filed with the jail, a social media site called “Chatstep,” reported to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that one of their users uploaded child pornography on Wednesday, Oct. 26. 

On Monday, Dec. 26, Clearfield police received a report of a 10-year-old girl who said Eakin had touched her under her clothing sexually and had her touch his genitalia while they watched child pornography, according to the document. The girl told officials the events happened more than once and in more than one location, according to the document.

Eakin is also suspected of manufacturing child pornography, according to the document. The ICAC team served a search warrant on Wednesday at Eakin’s home in Clearfield. They found several electronic devices, which “had hundreds of images/videos of child pornography,” on them, according to the document. 

“There will be a further investigation with the possibility of more charges,” the document says.

It is unclear in the probable cause statement how Eakin knew the girl or if there are more victims. 

Clearfield police referred media calls to the Attorney General’s Office because it’s an ICAC case.  

Eakin is being held in lieu of a $75,000 cash-only bail.

Former Salem-Keizer teacher faces child sex abuse charges
Lauren E Hernandez , Statesman Journal

A former Salem-Keizer, Oregon teacher is in jail for violating a release agreement on child sex abuse charges by attending a Thanksgiving dinner with children, according to officials.

Danny Lee Ceiplis,  former computer education teacher at Houck Middle School, is facing six counts of using a child in display of sexually explicit conduct.

From about October 5, 2004 to October 4, 2010, he is believed to have lured a child to engage in sexually explicit conduct for a person to observe, according to a Marion County Circuit Court information statement. The victim is known to Ceiplis.

The computer teacher, 54, resigned from his position at Houck Middle School on June 30 of this year.  Within a couple weeks of his resignation, Ceiplis was arrested by Keizer Police Department and charged on July 14 in Marion County Circuit Court.

Ceiplis was offered a release agreement in August on the condition of having no contact with the male victim or any minors. He was arrested December 16 for violating his release agreement by attending a Thanksgiving dinner where three children were present - ages 5, 8 and 11 years old, according to a Marion County Probable Cause statement.

Ceiplis was two years into his stint as a computer skills teacher at Salem Academy Christian Schools when the abuse is believed to have begun against the male victim in 2004.

He taught elementary computer skills to children in Kindergarten through grade 5, middle school and high school digital photography, web design and video production, according to Ceiplis' personal LinkedIn account.

Ceiplis taught computer skills at Salem Academy for 13 years before ending his time in August of 2015.

13 years in a Christian school and nobody had the discernment to suspect this guy was a pedophile? Wasn't there anyone in that Christian school who actually listened to God?

While at Salem Academy, he volunteered as a filmmaker for S.K.I.T. Youth Theatre, or Salem-Keizer Inspirational Teen Theatre, a two-part theater arts training program. He filmed and edited all of the theater's productions in January of 2013.

On September 3, 2015, he started his role as a computer education teacher at Houck Middle School. In his position, Ceiplis was an iPad and computer application teacher who taught video production skills, according to his LinkedIn account. His account states he worked with students to produce weekly announcements and taught film and editing skills.

Ceiplis' resignation was announced by superintendent Christy Perry at a Salem-Keizer School Board meeting on August 9 of this year.

Ceiplis has an active Initial II Teaching license that expires on May 21, 2017, according to the Teacher Standards and Practices Commission. According to the Standards for Competent and Ethical Performance of Oregon Educators, the commission may revoke a teacher's license following a conviction for various crimes, including using a child in display of sexually explicit conduct.

Using a child in display of sexually explicit conduct is a Measure 11 crime that carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 70 months in prison.

Ceiplis is in Marion County Jail on $500,000 bail. He is scheduled for a status check on January 10 at 1 p.m. with Judge Claudia Burton.

Ex-mayor takes child-sex abuse case to
Supreme Court, again
By DAVE COLLINS Associated Press 

HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Former Waterbury Mayor Philip Giordano is back before the U.S. Supreme Court in another appeal of his 37-year prison sentence for sexually abusing two young girls while in office.

Giordano is challenging a decision by the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals in New York in June to dismiss his request to set aside or correct his sentence. Giordano argues that the prison sentence is unconstitutional and that his lawyer during his 2003 trial, Andrew Bowman, made mistakes, including not informing him of plea bargains offered by prosecutors.

Bowman denies he provided ineffective counsel, and lower courts agreed with him.

The Supreme Court is set to discuss the case Friday to determine whether it will hear the appeal. The high court has refused to hear two previous appeals by Giordano.

"We're certain that the court will review the claim, and we're very hopeful they will rule in our favor," said Giordano's appellate lawyer, Aaron Romano.

A spokesman for the U.S. attorney's office declined to comment.

A federal jury convicted Giordano in 2003 of violating the girls' civil rights by sexually abusing them in 2000 and 2001 while he was in office. The abuse came to light as federal investigators were looking into possible corruption at Waterbury City Hall. He also was convicted of paying a crack-addicted prostitute, who was the mother of one of the victims and aunt of the other, to bring the girls to him for sexual encounters.

The two cousins, ages 8 and 10 at the time of the abuse, testified at the trial on closed-circuit television from another location that they were forced to perform oral sex on Giordano and described sexual encounters with the mayor in City Hall, his law office, his house, his car and a friend's apartment.

He was convicted and sentenced to 37 years in prison. He also was sentenced to 18 years in prison on state child-sex charges related to the same abuse after pleading no contest.

Can someone tell me how a man can be convicted of the same offence in federal and state courts and given two different sentences? I'm sure there's a logical explanation.

Giordano, 53, a Republican and former lawyer who ran an unsuccessful campaign against U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman in 2000, is detained at the federal prison in Tucson, Arizona, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons. He has repeatedly maintained his innocence.

He alleges Bowman failed to inform him of plea bargains in which federal prosecutors offered a 15-year prison sentence and state prosecutors offered an 18-year prison sentence.

Now I'm really getting confused! He alleges his innocence but is angry because he didn't get a plea deal from the feds. Why would he want a plea deal if he is innocent? And he appears to claim that Bowman didn't inform him of the state plea deal - which he took!!!
