13 Perverts on Today's P&P List - Many Get Big Sentences
Anchorage man gets 115-year sentence in lengthy child sex abuse caseAuthor: 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 abuseBy 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.

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 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.

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
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 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.

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.

Jurors recommend more than 3 life terms for Chesapeake man in child sex abuse case
By Margaret Matray
Jurors on Friday recommended a Chesapeake man serve three life terms plus five years in prison for sexually abusing a 7-year-old boy.
