Salem teacher arrested on
child sexual abuse charges

Lauren E Hernandez , Statesman Journal , KGW 

SALEM, Ore. -- A longtime Salem-Keizer teacher is facing 15 counts of child sexual abuse involving inappropriate contact with a former student, according to officials.

Shane Ross, 40, of Turner was arrested by Salem Police Detectives who believe he sexually assaulted a former student over the course of several years. Ross is listed as a physical education specialist at Englewood Elementary School in Salem where he has taught since 2012.

The school district said Wednesday that Ross has been on paid leave from Englewood since March. A letter about the case was sent home to Englewood parents Wednesday, according to Jay Remy, district communications director.

Previous to joining the Englewood staff, Ross taught physical education and computer classes at Houck and Parrish middle schools as well as Schirle and Rosedale elementary schools. He has been employed by the Salem-Keizer district since 2000.

He is facing five counts of first-degree sexual abuse, nine counts of second-degree sexual abuse and one count of second-degree unlawful sexual penetration, according to Salem Police Department.

Investigators said there may be additional victims and ask anyone with information regarding any concerning or inappropriate contact involving Ross to contact the Salem Police Department Tip Line at 503-588-8477.

First-degree sexual abuse and second-degree unlawful sexual penetration are Measure 11 offenses that carry mandatory minimum sentences of 75 months in prison. 

2007 child-sex abuse case against former
MPD officer resumes
Kelsey Davis, Montgomery Advertiser

Roughly 10 years after first being filed, attorneys are asking that a lawsuit against the Montgomery Police Department and a former officer resume.

In 2007, former MPD officer Billy Ross was charged with sexually abusing four minors at Capitol Heights Junior High School.

Ross was working as a school bureau officer when he subjected children to “inappropriate sexual conduct,” while they were locked in his office, court documents indicate.

He eventually pleaded guilty to three counts of attempted sodomy, four counts of enticing a child and one count of sexual abuse, and was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

During the sentencing phase, it was made known to the judge that before he ever committed these crimes, Ross had asked MPD to be transferred out of the school bureau and away from any contact with children.

“It was also learned that his request for transfer was bolstered by a statement from his mental health professional that he should be transferred,” reads a court document.

One of his victims, who was 14 when Ross abused her, filed suit against Ross and MPD in 2008 — almost exactly one year after the assault.

About three years into the litigation, though, the case was put on inactive status.

Then, in March 2017, an attorney for one of the victims filed a motion asking that the case be reinstated.

The one-sentence motion gave no reason why.

Defendants have asked for the case to be dismissed, stating that they would be, “unduly prejudiced at this point to have to move forward and assert any defense given the unavailability of crucial witnesses.”

“The majority of witnesses in the present case who were employed by the City at the time of the incident  ...  have long since retired,” the motion to dismiss states. “This  would include the supervisors and police chief responsible for making determinations regarding transfers within the Montgomery Police Department and those who were in direct contact with Defendant Ross and his mental health professionals in early 2005 when he was seeing a counselor and psychiatrist on matters not related to this case.”

They also noted that the plaintiffs hadn’t taken any meaningful action in the case since 2009.

The victim’s attorney filed a response, citing the victim’s “tender age and psychological trauma” as one reason for needing to pause litigation.

Additionally, criminal proceedings with Ross continued until 2014 and a separate case against him was also pending, the response argues. Ross is currently serving his 20-year sentence at Limestone Correctional Facility. 

“Once  this  case  was  filed,  there  was  every  reason – judicial  economy,  case management, and consideration of (the victim’s) tender age and psychological trauma –to allow the criminal processes to be completed, the City to defend its other lawsuit, and (the victim) to mature and recover,” the response states.

The case is currently set to go to trial in September. 

Owner of San Pablo therapy center accused of
child sexual abuse
The 41-year-old man allegedly took a girl to motels for
sex starting when she was 11

By TOM LOCHNER | Bay Area News Group

SAN PABLO — The owner of a business that provides therapy to children has been charged with sexual abuse of a minor, over his relationship with a young girl he allegedly took to motels for sex, police said.

Norman Alexander Lozano, 41, of San Pablo was arrested June 6 by San Pablo police on suspicion of child molestation, according to a news release from the San Pablo Police Department. On June 8, the Contra Costa District Attorney’s office charged Lozano with 36 felony counts related to sexual abuse of a minor. As of midday Wednesday, Lozano was in county jail with bail set at $10.9 million, police said.

Lozano met the girl when she was about 5 years old, and the offenses he is charged with occurred when the girl was between 11 and 16, according to police. According to the girl’s statements to police, Lozano took her to motels in different parts of West Contra Costa County where he committed the offenses.

Lozano owns and operates the NY Learning Center, according to police. The business, headquartered in Richmond, with sites in Fairfield and San Pablo, offers “the most efficient and advanced ABA Assessments and Applied Behavioral Analyst therapy for children and young adults with developmental disabilities in California,” according to its website. The therapy is offered at home, at the center or in community settings, and is aimed primarily at children with autism and related developmental disorders, according to the website.

The San Pablo center was in operation when a reporter visited shortly after 2 p.m. Wednesday. Children were present, with adults tending to them.

An employee appeared shocked to learn about Lozano’s arrest and the charges he faces.

Another employee said Lozano is involved in the business end of the center only and that he does not interact with the children there.

The minor Lozano allegedly victimized is not connected to the NY Learning Center, police said.

Lozano also owns and operates the Noya Restaurant and Lounge on Laurie Lane in San Pablo, according to police. The restaurant was closed Wednesday; a sign on the entrance door said the place is undergoing improvements.

San Pablo police are continuing their investigation, and asking anyone who may have information relevant to the case to contact Sgt. Jose Barajas of the San Pablo Police Department at 510-215-3150.

Logan man sentenced to prison on child sex abuse
Amy Macavinta 

A 58-year-old Logan man convicted of sexually abusing a child was sentenced to the Utah State Prison Tuesday in 1st District Court.

“In cases of child sex abuse, these victims are so vulnerable and these crimes have such an impact on their young lives that these cases need to be taken seriously,” said Cache County prosecutor Spencer Walsh.

Manuel Lynn Johnson was charged in February with aggravated sexual abuse of a child amid allegations that he inappropriately touched a small child.

Johnson reportedly groomed the child in an effort to gain her trust and make the abuse seem innocent.

“He tried to blur the lines and mask his deviant behavior with games, but this was a clearly calculated and planned case of child sex abuse,” Walsh said.

Johnson, who was facing 15 years to life in prison, accepted a negotiated plea settlement in March. He pleaded guilty to attempted aggravated sexual abuse of a child, a reduction in charge that dropped the mandatory minimum from 15 years to three years.

Johnson was ordered to serve three years to life in the prison.

Former Hagerstown man gets 10 years in 2004
child sex-abuse case
Don Aines 

A former Hagerstown man charged in 2016 with molesting a child in 2004 was sentenced Wednesday in Washington County Circuit Court to 10 years in state prison.

Russell Eugene Sines, 38, pleaded guilty to sexual abuse of a minor in December, but his sentencing was delayed to allow for the completion of a presentence investigation.

Senior Circuit Judge John H. Tisdale on Wednesday sentenced Sines to 25 years in prison, suspending 15 years of the term.

Sexual abuse of a minor is considered a crime of violence, so Sines must serve half of the 10 years before he is eligible for parole.

The sentence includes five years on probation, supervised by a program for sexual offenders.

Sines also must register as a sexual offender for the rest of his life.

In February 2016, a teenage girl and her mother reported to Hagerstown police that Sines had touched the girl inappropriately 10 to 12 years before, according to the application for statement of charges.

The girl told police Sines had fondled her in the bedroom of a house in Hagerstown and then took her into a bathroom, where he asked her to perform a sexual act, the charging documents said.

The incident was interrupted when the girl's brother asked to use the bathroom, the documents said.

The girl later told police there were several Transformer action figures in Sines' bedroom, the documents said.

At the time of the investigation last year, Sines was an inmate at the Maryland Correctional Training Center. When he was interviewed by police, he said he lived in the house as late as 2004, the documents said.

When asked to describe his bedroom there, Sines mentioned the Transformer and super-hero figures, the documents said.

Assistant State's Attorney Sarah Mollett-Gaumer told Tisdale that Sines confessed to police, and his plea spared the victim from having to go through a jury trial.

However, she said the presentence investigation showed Sines has a tendency "to place blame on forces other than himself." Assistant Public Defender Thomas Tamm told the judge that Sines has accepted responsibility for the crime and its effect on the victim.

Tamm described Sines' life as "traumatic," and said he is "emotionally and socially immature for his age."

A guardian of the victim told Tisdale the teenager remains withdrawn, frightened and distrustful of men more than a decade after the incident.

Sines has been found guilty in 2008 of a second-degree sex offense. He was sentenced to 20 years in prison with 10 years suspended, according to court records.

He was required to register as a sex offender for life in that case, the records said.
