Broken Arrow man sentenced to 175 years in prison for sexually abusing two children

By Samantha Vicent Tulsa World 

A Broken Arrow man was sentenced to 175 years in prison Monday for convictions on five counts of child sexual abuse involving two children.

Jurors recommended in October that Jeffery Arch Jones, 26, receive prison sentences of 40 years each for three of the five counts, along with sentences of 25 and 30 years for the other two charges.

Jones was accused of sexually abusing a 7-year-old between September 2015 and September 2016 and an 11-year-old between August 2015 and August 2016.

District Judge William LaFortune upheld the jury's sentencing recommendations during a brief sentencing hearing Monday afternoon and ordered that each term be served consecutively, overruling a request from defense attorney Beverly Atteberry for concurrent sentencing.





Oregon police seek more victims of alleged
child sex abuser

Detectives said Monday there may be more victims of a man jailed last week on charges of sexually abusing children.

Jackson County Sheriff’s Office detectives arrested William Wade McDonald, 52, Wednesday.

He entered not guilty pleas Friday to two counts of first-degree unlawful sexual penetration and four counts of first-degree sexual abuse. He is accused of sexual acts against a child younger than 12 from 2003 into 2007 and sexual acts against another child younger than 14 from 2003 into 2005, according to court documents.

Investigators allege the abuse occurred over a period of several years against children known to McDonald through family and friends. He lived in the Gold Hill area for at least 16 years. Most recently, McDonald had been living in his vehicle, according to the Sheriff’s Office.

McDonald is being held in the Jackson County Jail on $500,000 bail.

He has a pretrial conference scheduled for Dec. 4, court records show.

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s office tip line at 541-774-8333. The case is number 17-19890.





Texas teacher sentenced to 15 years in prison for long-term sexual abuse of boy
By TOMMY WITHERSPOON twitherspoon@wacotrib.com 

A former Waco school district substitute teacher was sentenced to 15 years in prison Monday for the long-term sexual abuse of a boy beginning when the boy was 12. 

Judge Ralph Strother of Waco's 19th State District Court sentenced Jacoby Jerome Aclese to 15 years in prison, to be followed by 10 years of probation. 

Aclese, 30, pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child, sexual assault of a child and four counts of indecency with a child. Aclese entered his guilty plea without the benefit of a plea bargain from prosecutors. 

The judge sentenced Aclese to prison on the first count and placed him on probation for 10 years on the remaining counts. However, he "stacked" one probation term onto the prison sentence, meaning Aclese will serve a 10-year term of probation after he completes his prison sentence. 

The Bellmead man must serve at least 7 1/2 years in prison before he can seek parole. 

"Jacoby obviously is disappointed at having the judge sentence him to prison and probation," said Aclese's attorney, Jason P. Darling. "However, he is ready to get this behind him and is remorseful for what he put the victim through." 

A 19-year-old Bellmead man reported in March 2016 that Aclese, a family friend, had been sexually abusing him for seven years.  

Aclese was a substitute teacher for Waco schools from August 2010 to June 2011 and again from February 2012 to February 2013, according to WISD spokesman Kyle Debeer. Aclese was terminated in March 2013 for "improper conduct" and is not eligible for rehire, Debeer said.

Aclese was fired after a junior high student alleged Aclese exposed himself to the boy during a tutoring session, Darling said. Aclese denied the allegations, but Waco school officials fired him and "red flagged" his file, preventing him from getting another substitute teaching job, Darling said.  

Darling said no charges were filed from the boy's outcry and Aclese was able to get the "red flag" removed from his file after an administrative law hearing. 

The incidents involving the 19-year-old family friend, for which Aclese is going to prison, were not reported until about three years after the student's allegations, Darling said. 





Pawtucket Man Sentenced for Child Molestation
of his Daughter
STL.News Politics

PROVIDENCE, RI: Attorney General Peter F. Kilmartin announced that Eric Mensah (age 38), of Pawtucket, was sentenced on Friday, November 24, 2017, to a total of 35 years, with 25 years to serve and the remainder suspended with probation for multiple counts of first and second degree child molestation. In addition, Menash was ordered to have no contact with the victim, must undergo alcohol counseling and sex offender counseling, and is subject to lifetime sex offender registration and community notification.

Rhode Island Capitol

Menash was found guilty in September of two counts of first degree child molestation and two counts of second degree child molestation after a 10-day trial presided over by Superior Court Justice Netti C. Vogel.

During the trial, the State proved that Menash molested his biological daughter on multiple locations between August 30, 2013 and December 20, 2015. The molestation began after the child moved from Ghana to Pawtucket to reside with her father.

The victim testified during the trial that she was afraid to report the molestation because the defendant physically assaulted and threatened her if she disclosed. The victim finally disclosed to her babysitter the physical and sexual abuse on December 20, 2015. The next morning, the babysitter reported the abuse and molestation to a school counselor who in turn contacted DCYF.

A forensic interview was conducted at the Children’s Advocacy Center at Day One on December 22, 2015, after which the defendant was arrested and charged by the Pawtucket Police Department.

“This young girl came to this country with the hopes and dreams of a better life than she could have in her home country of Ghana, only for the one person she should have been able to trust unequivocally, physically and sexually assault her almost from the day she arrived. She showed tremendous strength and courage in coming forward to report the violence and intimidation perpetrated on her by her father. It is my sincerest hope that she feels safe knowing her abuser will not be able to harm her again,” said Attorney General Kilmartin.

Pawtucket Police Detectives Charles “Chip” Devine and Carrie Hormanski led the investigation and Special Assistant Attorney General and Chief of the Child Abuse Unit Shannon Signore prosecuted the case on behalf of the Office of Attorney General.





Illinois man admits sex abuse of teen
he met on social media

A Lake County man accused of sexually abusing a 15-year-old girl he met on social media agreed to a plea deal Monday that could put him in prison for up to four years.

Steve W. Spoerl, 54, of the 24700 block of West Townline Road near Round Lake, pleaded guilty Monday morning in front of Lake County Judge Victoria Rossetti to two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

Spoerl is eligible to receive day-for-day credit while serving his prison sentence and already has credit for 168 days he has served in Lake County jail since his arrest earlier this year.

After finishing the four-year prison sentence, Spoerl must serve another 18 months of periodic imprisonment, said Assistant Lake County Assistant State's Attorney Eric Kalata.

He'll spend that time in the Lake County jail, going free only for work, to search for work, for court appearances, or to meet with attorneys or doctors. If he complies with requirements during his periodic imprisonment, he could go before Rossetti and ask that the rest of the sentence be lifted.

Spoerl must also spend two years on probation, perform 200 hours of public service, go through sex offender evaluation and register as a sex offender for the rest of his life, Kalata said.

A third count of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and charges of possession of child pornography and soliciting child pornography were dropped in exchange for the plea deal.

Kalata said in court Monday that Spoerl connected with the teen girl over a social media app called "Whisper." Using the app, Spoerl arranged a meeting with the teen, then took her to a Waukegan motel where sex acts took place, Kalata said.

The family of the teen filed a missing-person report, Kalata said. Three days later, the victim -- a diabetic who had not been taking her medication -- reached out to a friend through social media, saying she needed help.

Police traced the a communication to Spoerl's house, where he was arrested, Kalata said. The girl slipped into a diabetic coma and was taken to Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge for treatment.

Spoerl has been held in Lake County jail on $1 million bail since his arrest in June.





Oklahoma woman, man charged with felonies in child sexual abuse case
By Ryan Miller Staff Writer 
     
GOLTRY – A 36-year-old Alfalfa County woman previously charged with felony child neglect was charged Nov. 22 with three new felonies on suspicion of enabling child sexual abuse, according to court documents. 

A 45-year-old Alfalfa County man was charged with six felonies related to the reported child sexual abuse, according to court records. 

Heather Jean Sharp was charged Nov. 15 with a felony count of child neglect. On Nov. 22, Sharp was charged with three new felonies, including two counts of enabling child sexual abuse and one count of failure to report child sexual abuse, according to court documents filed in Alfalfa County. 

The enabling child sexual abuse felonies are each punishable by life in prison and/or a fine of between $500 to $5,000. Failure to report child sexual abuse felony is punishable by up to two years in prison and a fine up to $1,000, according to court documents. The first child neglect felony is punishable by up to life in prison or by up to one year in county jail, a fine $500 to $5,000, or both fine and imprisonment. 

Michael Edward James was charged Nov. 17 with first-degree rape of a victim under age 14, two counts of rape by instrumentation and three counts of lewd molestation, according to court documents.

The first-degree rape is punishable by a minimum of five years in prison, and the rape by instrumentation charges are each punishable by five years in prison to life without parole, according to court documents. Each of the three lewd molestation charges are punishable by three to 20 years in prison. 

In the first probable cause affidavit filed Nov. 15, Sharp was accused of failing to report or protect an 8-year-old girl from sexual abuse by a boy. According to the Nov. 22 affidavit with the three new charges, Sharp is accused of "permitting an adult male to engage and participate in Sex (sic)" with a 13-year-old girl. 

The girl told Sharp about the sexual abuse, but the child said Sharp did not do anything about the reported abuse, according to both affidavits. 

While the two girls were being taken to a sexual abuse examination, the older girl told officials that James had sexually assaulted her numerous times, and the examination revealed signs of sexual abuse, according to the affidavit. 

Sharp told investigators on Nov. 15 that in July, she saw the older girl come out of her room with James, and the girl told Sharp that James had sexually abused her, and James told Sharp he was "teaching her about sex," according to the affidavit.

In another earlier incident, Sharp told officials she caught James on top of the older girl, sexually abusing her, according to the affidavit. Sharp said James told her he was "teaching her about what boys might do," according to the affidavit.

Sharp told investigators she thought James might be having sex with the older girl, but did not ask him to leave because he had nowhere to go, and that he "does things for her," according to the affidavit. 

In an interview, the older girl detailed a number of sexual abuse incidents perpetrated by James spanning several years, according to the affidavit.

On Nov. 15, when law enforcement officials went to speak with James and Sharp about the reported sexual abuse, James had a seizure upon being notified of the allegations, according to the affidavit, and was taken to the hospital, where the doctor believed James to be "faking" his symptoms, although James also was tested positive for methamphetamine. 

In a different incident on Nov. 13, a boy sexually assaulted the younger 8-year-old girl in the residence, according to the affidavit. Sharp walked into the bedroom and observed the boy putting his hands into the girl’s pants, told him to stop, then left the room.

In a later interview with the boy, he admitted to having sex with the 8-year-old girl, according to the affidavit. 

The boy had previous incident of inappropriate sexual behavior, including taking pictures of his genitals on multiple occasions and showing other students, according to the affidavit, and the incidents were handled only by school officials. 

“Both incidents involved the manufacture of and possession of child pornography,” the affidavit reads.

On Nov. 13, law enforcement viewed the camera application on the boy’s school-issued iPad, and found numerous “hard core” sexually explicit photos of adults, first accessed and saved on Sept. 4, 2013, through Nov. 13, 2017, according to the affidavit.

Sharp admitted she was aware of all the reported incidents, and later provided a handwritten statement, according to the affidavit.

According to online court records, Sharp made an initial appearance on the felony child neglect charge Nov. 15, and on Nov. 22, a warrant was issued for her arrest on the three newer felonies.

Online court records show James made an initial appearance Nov. 17.

Austin teacher on administrative leave after improper relationship, child abuse allegations
KVUE

AUSTIN, TX - An Austin ISD middle school teacher has been placed on administrative leave after he was charged with improper relationship with a student and continuous sexual abuse of a child, a representative of AISD confirmed with KVUE Monday.

AISD identified the teacher as Pedro Esteban Rosas Martinez, a Spanish teacher at Dobie Middle School. A representative with the district said Rosas Martinez started teaching at AISD last August.

Travis County officials said that the Austin ISD Police Department received a report on Oct. 31 of a 12-year-old Dobie Middle School student who had cell phone video of a teacher "inappropriately touching her." A detective was then sent to school, who later reviewed the victim's video and observed a male subject touching the victim's inner thigh.

Court documents state the victim was forensically interviewed at the Center for Child Protection on Nov. 6, where she reported that Rosas Martinez had been touching her below the waist on a continuous basis since approximately May 1. The victim stated that she decided to record the incident on Oct. 31 in order to make her outcry.

Police said that upon making contact with Rosas Martinez on the same day of the victim's recording, his voice and clothing matched the male subject's in the video.

According to a letter sent out by Dobie Middle School, the teacher has been on administrative leave with pay since Oct. 31, the same day the school said it received the allegations, and he has been recommended for termination. 

The school said additional counselors are available for students who may need support, and that it would be holding a meeting for families at 5:30 p.m. on Monday in the library.

Rosas Martinez' bond was set at $150,000.





Trial date set for Feb. 5 for priest in child pornography case

The Louisiana trial where nobody showed up but the judge!!!

Ken Stickney, kstickney@theadvertiser.com 

The Rev. F. David Broussard, charged 16 months ago with 500 counts of possession of child pornography, may yet get his day in court.

But it didn't happen Monday in 16th Judicial District Court in St. Martin Parish, where he was scheduled to appear before Judge Vincent J. Borne. And it won't happen until at least Feb. 5, which is when attorneys have agreed to try the felony case.

Broussard's name was called in court simply as "Felix Broussard," but he did not appear before the judge after court officials scoured the courtroom to see if the defendant was present to stand. Court officials initially were uncertain why Broussard was absent.

The likelihood was that Broussard's attorney, Thomas Guilbeau of Lafayette, was not available for Broussard's defense Monday. Guilbeau's office said Monday morning the veteran defense attorney was in Lafayette Parish, where he was expected to represent a defendant in a week-long trial.

Robert Chevalier, the 16th Judicial Court assistant district attorney, was not at the courthouse either, his office staff said. Nor was Chevalier available for comment.

A spokeswoman for the St. Martin Clerk of Court, Criminal Department, said Monday afternoon that attorneys had agreed by phone to move the trial date to Feb. 5.

Broussard remained free Monday on $25,000 bond.

A priest for more than two decades, Broussard was arrested in July 2016 after a repair technician discovered more than 500 images of child sex abuse on Broussard's personal computer. Broussard had brought the computer in for repairs and the technician, after discovering the images, was required by law to report the crime.

Broussard had been assigned to St. Bernard Roman Catholic Church in Breaux Bridge at the time of his arrest; he was also chancellor at the parish school.

A police investigation revealed the images were on Broussard's computer for about two years. None of the images were of local children, authorities said.

On the weekend after his arrest, Broussard sent a letter of apology to his parishioners by way of Most Rev. Douglas Deshotel, bishop of Lafayette, who offered Masses at St. Bernard that weekend and read the letter to parishioners.

Nonetheless, Broussard personally entered a plea of not guilty to the possession of child pornography charges in May before Judge Paul de Mahy.

At the time of Broussard's arrest, Deshotel suspended him from his priestly duties. Church law says sex with minors is a sin of adultery and is considered criminal. If he is convicted, the church could convene a tribunal for Broussard and remove him from the priesthood.





‘So you can’t do this again’ Ohio judge says as she sentences man to 30 years in prison for  child sex abuse
Nancy Bowman  Contributing Writer

TROY - Thirty years in prison was ordered Monday for a Monroe Twp., Miami County, man convicted of five felony charges of sexual battery and gross sexual imposition involving sexual contact and sexual conduct with a child under age 10 in 2014.

Sean Pratt, 35, was sentenced in Miami County Common Pleas Court. 

Pratt pleaded guilty in October to two counts of sexual battery and three counts of gross sexual imposition as part of a deal in which prosecutors recommended the 30-year sentence. He was sentenced by Judge Jeannine Pratt

Hmmm. Any relation? Apparently not!

Pratt was arrested in late summer by sheriff’s investigators after the victim told a friend she was sexually abused. A parent notified investigators. The parent wrote in her statement that she believed the child "will never truly get over this." 

Sean Pratt declined comment before sentencing. County Prosecutor Tony Kendell said the sentence was "justified and appropriate." 

Judge Pratt said the 30-year term was needed to protect the public "so you can't do this again." 

Sean Pratt was classified as a Tier III sex offender, requiring lifetime registration of his address with law enforcement following release from prison.

New Orleans sex offender booked with 550 counts of possession of child pornography

By Marie Simoneaux mariesimoneaux@nola.com,
NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune

A New Orleans man and registered sex offender was booked Wednesday (Nov. 22) with more than 500 counts of possession of child pornography, according to the Louisiana Department of Justice.

Jonathan Ruiz, 36, was booked into Orleans Justice Center jail on a total of 550 counts related to his possession of "sexual abuse images and videos of children under the age of 13," according to a Department of Justice news release.

Ruiz was twice before convicted of possession of child porn: in 2002 in the 21st Judicial District Court, which includes Livingston, St. Helena and Tangipahoa parishes; and in 2006 in Jefferson Parish. He was convicted in 2015 in Orleans Parish for failure to register as a sex offender.

In May 2016, the Louisiana Department of Public Safety and Correction's sex offender assessment panel successfully sought to declare Ruiz a "child sexual predator," meaning he would remain on supervised probation for his lifetime, correction department spokesman Ken Pastorick said.

Ruiz was most recently incarcerated in Elayn Hunt Correctional Center in St. Gabriel, Louisiana, according to Pastorick. He was released in January 2017.

Additional convictions for Ruiz include simple burglary in 2004 out of the 21st Judicial District Court; and theft of goods and illegal possession of stolen property in 2005 out of Jefferson Parish.

Orleans Parish Magistrate Commissioner Robert Blackburn assigned a public defender to Ruiz's case after he appeared Wednesday in magistrate court. As of early Monday afternoon, Ruiz was being held at Orleans Justice Center without bond.

As a repeat offender, Ruiz will face a fine of up to $75,000 and up to 40 years at hard labor, without parole, probation or suspension of sentence, according to the release.

An investigation by Attorney General Jeff Landry's Cyber Crime Unit, the State of Louisiana Probation and Parole Office, the Orleans District Attorney's Office and the New Orleans Police Department led to Ruiz's arrest, the release states.

"These horrendous Internet crimes against children continuously inflict damage," Landry said in the press release. "Every time one of these videos or images is viewed, the child is re-victimized."

A Tangipahoa man was also arrested during the same investigation, according to the Department of Justice.

Randolph Ard of Kentwood, was booked into the Tangipahoa Parish Jail on 10 counts of possession of child pornography Wednesday, the release states.

According to the national sex offender registry, Ard was convicted of indecent behavior with juveniles and possessing child porn in Louisiana in March 2013 and was released in November 2015.





No lower bail for tennis coach in Oregon child porn case

By Brent Weisberg and KOIN 6 News staff

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) – A tennis coach accused of sex crimes against children will not be given a lower bail.

Thomas Zachary Rouse, 43, was booked into the Multnomah County Detention Center on April 14, 2016 after a grand jury handed down its third indictment in the case.

The latest indictment alleges four counts of using a child in a display of sexually explicit conduct, four counts of online sexual corruption of a child in the second degree, and 16 counts of encouraging child sexual abuse in the second degree.

Rouse’s bail is set at $1.09 million.

Earlier this month, Rouse’s criminal defense attorney Michael Curtis filed a motion with the court asking that his client’s bail be lowered.

“Mr. Rouse wishes to post funds to secure his release pending trial, but believes that neither he nor his family have adequate funds to post the amount currently necessary,” according to Curtis’ motion.

Curtis wrote that if released, his client would gladly wear a GPS bracelet to allow authorities to track his location.

“If released, Mr. Rouse hopes to work or otherwise do something productive. He is tired 13 of, in effect, being on the shelf,” Curtis wrote.

Records show that authorities came to the conclusion that Rouse may have been trying to flee the country, but Curtis explained that Rouse believed that some of the criminal charges Rouse had been facing would be dismissed.

“Mr. Rouse was optimistic that he could move on and, therefore, was looking for work in his chosen field,” Curtis wrote. “…He did examine the possibility of employment in Britain, among other places, not because he was going to flee there, but because he hoped to start over there.”

The investigation into Rouse began on September 22, 2015 when the Portland Police Bureau received a copy of a report from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The report was submitted by an online adult dating website. The company reported that a user, later identified as Rouse, was engaging in a chat with another user and reportedly exchanged child pornography.

Multiple subpoenas and search warrants were executed in connection with the case.

The Portland Tribune spoke exclusively with Rouse inside the Multnomah County Detention Center back in September. Rouse, a former tennis Instructor for the City of Portland Parks & Recreation, was originally arrested on October 2, 2015. The Portland Police Bureau said that the charges are not related to Rouse’s former work as a tennis coach.

Rouse’s trial is scheduled for April 2018.

If anyone has information relating to Rouse, contact Detective Cory Stenzel at 503-823-0453, cory.stenzel@portlandoregon.gov.





Alabama man charged with child rape
     
Brandon William Brown, 20, was arrested last week at the Cullman County Detention Center. He was charged with a single count of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12.

Authorities do not release details of cases involving alleged abuse of minors, so there is little additional information about the nature of the charge until Brown has been arraigned.

Brown was arrested last month on a charge of 2nd degree rape in a case that, according to the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office, was connected to an alleged victim who is a minor. His arrest last week came while he was incarcerated at the detention center on that earlier charge.

“I would like to thank the Child Advocacy Center for their commitment to keep children safe and to get them the help they need,” said Sheriff Matt Gentry in a statement. “I would also like to thank our investigators who worked on this case.”

Brown faces a $55,000 property bond, and remains in custody at the detention center.
