Houston church deacon charged with child sex abuse
KHOU.com Staff 

HOUSTON – Houston Police say an ordained church deacon has been arrested in a child sex assault investigation, and investigators are now looking for other possible victims.

Charges are filed against Barry Todd Durrell, 55, for at least two sexual assault incidents in Houston since May 2016, according to HPD. He is charged with super aggravated sexual assault and continuous sexual abuse of a child.

According to HPD, Durrell is a deacon where the two incidents occurred at the West Houston Seventh Day Adventist Church on West Sam Houston Parkway North.

Durrell is accused of taking a 2-year-old boy into a closet at the church where he sexually assaulted him in May 2016. The mom found the child and the deacon alone in the closet.

A second male victim, 7, came forward in Feb. 2017 and told family members about ongoing assaults, and that's when the HPD investigation got underway. Durrell was arrested in March and confessed to the crimes, according to HPD.

As the victim was attending a class at the church, Durrell would allegedly take the victim multiple times to the restroom and commit the sexual assault. The second victim also stated he was assaulted in other locations, at 2900 West Sam Houston Parkway South and 300 Memorial City Way.

At a press conference, police said Durrell was convicted of a similar offense in California in 1988. He was not on the registered sex offender list, however.

Because the deacon has been involved in the Houston community for 30 years, investigators believe there are other victims. They are asking anyone with information to contact the HPD Special Victims Division at 713-830-3254 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

After HPD announced the charges, the West Houston Seventh-day Adventist church released the following statement:

 The West Houston Seventh-day Adventist Church has been made aware of the recent charges against and subsequent arrest of one of its members. The West Houston Church strongly condemns the alleged offenses and is cooperating fully with law enforcement and its investigation. The West Houston Church is a 700-member multicultural Seventh-day Adventist congregation and the well-being of its members and community is of upmost importance.

Fourth person accuses Seattle mayor of child sex abuse
Jason Sillman, KING 

A fourth accuser came forward claiming Seattle Mayor Ed Murray paid him for sex when he was a teenager.

In court documents filed Tuesday, Maurice Jones, 44, claimed he was introduced to Murray by Delvonn Heckard who also claimed he was abused as a teen by Murray. Heckard is the only person suing the mayor at this point. The declaration submitted to the court by Jones is in support of Heckard's lawsuit.

Jones claimed in a written statement that Murray was known for patronizing child prostitutes at the time when Jones was a teen. Jones claimed he had also been in Murray’s Capitol Hill apartment at the same time Heckard has claimed abuse in the 1980s.

Lincoln Beauregard, Heckard's attorney, said Jones recalled two sexual encounters with Murray. One was in his apartment and one was someplace else. Beauregard said Jones participated in the alleged sex acts for money.

He also wrote that he is not part of any right-wing conspiracy and that he is gay.

Murray has vehemently denied the accusations many times in public and through his attorney.

Mayor Ed Murray
Jeff Reading, a spokesperson for Murray, said the allegation was "false" and called the filing a "sensational media stunt."

"Mayor Murray does not know this person," Reading said in a statement. "This is an ambush copycat false accusation that is being made without any details, evidence, timeline or anything at all to substantiate its veracity."

The newly filed declaration was accompanied by a photograph. It shows Heckard’s attorney, Lincoln Beauregard, on the left, grinning and holding the declaration. On the right, Maurice Jones is pictured wearing an orange jail jumpsuit, also smiling from the other side of a Plexiglas partition. Jones is currently being held in the King County Jail. It is unclear why he is there, but Beauregard said it could be on a drug charge.

Reading wrote in the Tuesday statement that the “read-‘em-weep selfie of Beauregard and the beaming accuser is extremely odd and unsettling.”

Calgary man charged in child sex abuse investigation

Calgary police have arrested a 27-year-old man they allege was meeting underage girls online and asking them for sexual favours.

The investigation began in December after a 14-year-old girl told officers she’d been spending time driving around with a man in his late 20s.

Police discovered the man had been meeting up with other young teens, using the screen names “Josh” and “Brandon.”

Last month, a 13-year-old girl accused the man of asking her for sex.

Christian Allen Sarile is charged with three counts of sexual interference, invitation to sexual touching, sexual assault, and obtaining sexual services for consideration from a person under 18 years of age.

Police are expected to update media on the case Wednesday.

Man of confused gender facing possible 70 years for
child sex abuse

A Casper resident accused of sexually abusing a young girl in March is set to enter pleas to two felony charges Wednesday afternoon in Natrona County District Court.

Miguel Alberto Martinez, also known as Michelle, faces one count of first-degree sexual abuse of a child and one count of second-degree sexual abuse of a child. Martinez could face up to 70 years in prison if convicted on both counts.

Martinez is set to be arraigned this afternoon. 

Under the statutes cited in charging papers, the first-degree charge alleges Martinez inflicted sexual intrusion on a victim who was 10 years old at the time.

The second-degree charge says Martinez of engaging in sexual contact with the same victim by grabbing her breast.

According to court documents, the victim reported being abused on March 23 by a family friend. Martinez was reportedly at the home where the alleged victim lived and asked the victim to come into the bathroom at about 8:30 p.m.

The alleged victim reportedly tried not to cry as she told the officer Martinez touched her "private parts," saying the alleged touching hurt.

Charging papers say the alleged victim's mother described Martinez as a male who dressed and identified as a female. Police say in the affidavit that Martinez was known to use the name "Michelle."

Does that make him a transgender lesbian? 

The alleged victim was taken to Wyoming Medical Center for a sexual assault nurse examination.

Evansville police officers went to a home and found Martinez passed out on a couch. Martinez was extremely intoxicated and difficult to awaken, according to the affidavit. Martinez was arrested on a warrant for failure to appear and was taken to the Casper Police Department.

The results of a portable breath test reportedly showed Martinez had a blood-alcohol concentration of .218.

A detective interviewed Martinez and, when the detective steered toward the alleged sexual abuse, Martinez reportedly became "noticeably hostile and defensive," according to the affidavit.

Martinez said they were accused of doing something wrong for "not paying enough attention to the kids." The detective asked what Martinez was accused of doing wrong, and Martinez reportedly said, "I don't know," adding they didn't want to talk about it.

Martinez also told the detective they were being questioned about things they didn't do. Martinez denied touching the victim's breasts and denied sexually abusing any child.

According to court documents, Martinez talked about arriving at the home around 6:30 p.m. and leaving some time later. After leaving, Martinez said they got a text from someone who wanted to talk to him.

Martinez talked about going back to the home where the person who texted Martinez reportedly accused Martinez of touching the alleged victim's chest.

Martinez replied, saying it was a publicity stunt and Martinez wasn't going to deal with it, according to the affidavit.

The detective writes in charging papers that Martinez abruptly ended the interview and exercised his right to remain silent.

A sexual assault kit included physical evidence collected from Martinez, who was arrested on the two sexual abuse charges as well as the outstanding warrant.

Seven Years For Pastor In Child Sex Abuse
By Liz Goff

A 46-year-old Woodside man was sentenced last week to seven years in prison for sexually abusing a 6-year-old girl his wife was babysitting at her apartment in the Woodside Houses.

James Love, 46, was found guilty in April of first-degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child, Queens District Attorney Richard Brown said. Love was sentenced on April 24 to seven years in prison, followed by 10 years post-release supervision, Brown said. Upon his release from prison, Love will also be required to register as a sex offender on the New York State Sex Offender Registry. 

Love, who was pastor of New Mount Zion Baptist Church in Brooklyn at the time of the abuse, was convicted of molesting the girl in the Woodside apartment on March 7, 2016, touching her genitals over her clothing, according to the complaint.

Lowe repeated the act on June 7, 2016, then rubbed his genitals against the girl’s genitals, between their clothing, tried to put his hand under her clothing, exposed himself to the girl and placed her hand on his genitals, according to the court papers. 

Investigators arrested Love after they arranged a phone call between him and the child’s mother - after the woman reported the abuse to police on June 7, according to the complaint. 

Prosecutors said the abuse took place over the span of about one year, from June 2015 to June 2016.

“A jury listened to all the evidence and convicted the defendant of sexually abusing an innocent little girl,” Brown said. “The victim’s mother…had every expectation that her daughter would be cared for and protected, but instead the husband of the sitter took advantage of the girl’s proximity and repeatedly violated her for his own sexual gratification,” Brown said. “The defendant will be incarcerated to punish him for these acts, as well as to protect others from his depraved impulses.”

Except, the 7 year sentence means the victim will probably just be approaching her teens when this pervert gets out of prison. He's not likely to re-offend as far as this girl is concerned but just having him loose in the community is not healthy for her and will affect her healing. 

Another version of this story says that Love's wife ran a daycare at her apartment. No-one should feel safe leaving little children in a day-care where men are often or occasionally present, even pastors.

Man in child sex abuse case refuses plea deal
Emily Havens

An Enterprise man rejected a plea agreement and pleaded not guilty to a slew of child sex abuse charges in 5th District Court on Monday morning.

Kevin Joseph Betony, 37, is charged with 10 first-degree felony counts of child sex abuse relating to offenses that allegedly occurred between October 2014 and July 2016.

"He was considering pleading guilty," Deputy County Attorney Ryan Shaum said. "He decided that he wanted to go to a jury trial."

In addition, Betony also pleaded not guilty to a class-A misdemeanor assault charge and two class-A misdemeanor charges relating to commissioning domestic violence in the presence of children.

Shaum said there's not much information relating to the sex abuse charges that has been made public yet without a preliminary hearing, but Betony also has other charges pending in relation to alleged assaults and intoxication.

Defense Attorney Jay Winward declined to comment on Betony's pending cases.

According to Washington County court records, Betony has been convicted in nearly 20 intoxication cases, and several of them also involve assault and disorderly conduct, typically relating to domestic violence.

In one of his recent cases, Betony was convicted of hitting and choking two male juveniles after he had furnished alcohol to them, court records indicate.

The case involving the child sex abuse charges will be scheduled for a jury trail sometime in late summer, Shaum said. If a suspect is found guilty in a first-degree felony case, the statutory minimum for a convicted person is five years imprisonment up to a potential maximum of life behind bars.

Clinton Co. woman sentenced on
child sex abuse charges
By 6 News Web Staff

ST. JOHNS, Mich (WLNS) – A Clinton County woman has been sentenced for a number of child sexual abuse related charges.

Carol Boak was sentenced today to a minimum of 12 years and a maximum of 20 years in prison after pleading guilty to child sexually abusive commercial activity.

She also pleaded guilty to possessing child sexually abusive material and distributing child abusive commercial activity.

Boak was one of three people arrested last year on a variety of child porn charges.

In August of 2016 Terry Plowman of St. Johns was arrested and sexually abusive pictures of children were found on his phone.

That arrest led to the arrests of Boak and Kenneth Thelen of Westphalia.

Plowman was sentenced to eight years to 20 years in prison last month.

Thelen was sentenced to 14 months in prison for his role.

Man, 74, charged with sexual abuse of then 6-year-old
Henry Culvyhouse

A 74-year-old Wicomico County man was charged April 29 in the sexual molestation of a then 6-year-old girl, Salisbury police said.

Neal Harrison Carey Sr. was charged in Wicomico County District Court with sexual abuse of a minor, second-, third- and fourth-degree sex offense and second-degree child abuse. Maryland Judiciary Case Search records show he was being held at the Wicomico County Detention Center on a $50,000 bond.

Carey babysat the victim while her mother was at work a handful of times several years prior to the disclosures, according to charging documents filed against Carey. During a forensic interview, the victim described Carey as a “pervert” who coerced her into oral sex. 

Arrrgh! Mothers, 
do not allow men to babysit your children, 

Forensic interviews have been standard procedure since the 1990s, following the Satanic Panic trials of the 1980s in which multiple people, primarily day care providers, were falsely accused and convicted of sexual abuse based off the testimony of evidence given from standard law enforcement interrogation techniques.

The leading nature of those interview methods caused the children involved in those cases to give false information, police experts later concluded. Now, Child Advocacy Centers employ social workers to interview child sexual abuse victims so as to not lead them, while officers watch the interview in a separate room, usually on closed circuit television.

Following the forensic interview with the victim, Carey was later interviewed by police, charging documents show. The suspect denied sexually abusing the child, however he did accuse her of making a sexual advance on him. 

If convicted on all charges, Carey would be placed as a Tier III sex offender, which means lifetime registration on the state’s sex offender registry. In that event, even if he moved to another state, he would still have to re-register on that state’s list, as well as update his information in Maryland.
