Lyon County woman sentenced on charges of
child sexual abuseBY BRANDON PEOPLES
A Lyon County woman convicted in November of child sexual abuse will spend the next eight years behind bars.
At a hearing Thursday, 35-year-old Shyla Bond was sentenced to 59 months on a charge of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, 32 months on a charge of sexual exploitation of a child and six months on a charge of aggravated endangerment of a child. The sentences will be served consecutively.
In addition, the judge imposed lifetime post-release supervision and lifetime registry as a sex offender. Bond is also required to pay nearly $4,000 in restitution.
The charges stem from incidents involving two children under the age of 14 that occurred between January 2008 and September 2014. The case was investigated by the Lyon County Sheriff's Office, the Lyon County Attorney's Office and the Department of Children and Families.

NY man jailed on child sex charges
WILTON — Police have charged a Wilton man with two felonies for allegedly having sexual contact with a 12-year-old girl in recent months, according to police.
Robert B. Mosher, 41, of Northern Pines Road, was arrested Wednesday after an investigation by the Saratoga County Sheriff's Office, the agency said in a news release.
He faces a count of first-degree criminal sexual act and first-degree sexual abuse for illegal sexual contact with a child with whom he is acquainted, police said.
Mosher was arraigned and sent to Saratoga County Jail for lack of bail. The criminal sexual act charge is punishable by up to 25 years each in state prison.
This is the third Mosher from Wilton charged with child sex abuse in the past 18 months. Michael and Jeanne Mosher were charged (4th story on link) with child sex abuse in June 2016.
Former 4th-grade teacher to spend 25 years to life in prison for molesting students
A former Hueneme elementary school district teacher was sentenced 25 years to life in prison on Thursday for molesting his students.
Port Hueneme police arrested Juan Jose Aguilar, 50, of Oxnard, in July 2013 in connection with the abuse incidents that occurred from 1999 to 2009. The former fourth-grade teacher at Williams School in Oxnard initially denied the charges but in November of this year before jury selection was slated to begin he changed his plea to guilty.
Aguilar's attorney, Cynthia Ellington of the Ventura County Public Defender's Office, said the Oxnard man "didn't want to put the victims through any more torment."
In November, he admitted to most of the charges (3rd story on link) he was facing. He pleaded guilty to six counts of felony lewd act upon a child, felony continuous sexual abuse and misdemeanor child abuse. He also admitted to several special allegations, including that there were multiple victims who were under the age of 18, according to court records.
Ventura County Superior Court Judge Jeffrey Bennett called the abuse a "difficult situation" that was described in detail in a probation officer's report to the court. Bennett's sentence for nearly all guilty offenses ranged from 25 years to life to 15 years to life in state prison with the possibility of parole. They will be served concurrently, he said.
In a previous interview with the Star, Senior Deputy District Attorney Patrice Koenig said the abuse involved eight male victims who were "elementary-school aged" at the time. They were Aguilar's students and children of family friends, she said.
In a 2013 declaration to support increasing Aguilar’s initial $200,000 bail, Port Hueneme police Detective Nora Starna said the students reported that he kissed them on the lips, touched their buttocks and had oral copulation in at least one case.
Most of the abuse incidents occurred in Aguilar’s classroom during lunchtime or after school or on non-school-related trips, the declaration alleged.
The victims said Aguilar would give them money, ice cream or candy or take them to Chuck E. Cheese or movies, according to the declaration.
Aguilar’s bail was eventually set at $1.4 million, according to Ventura County jail records.
Before the sentence was ordered, Ellington read an apology statement written by Aguilar saying that "a deep pain torments my heart" and he is ashamed for what he has done.
Koenig said the proceedings have been difficult for the victims and that Aguilar abused his "position of trust. A life sentence is absolutely warranted under the circumstances," Koenig said.
About 10 people sat in the courtroom as the sentence was heard. When the proceedings were over many of them gathered outside the courtroom around Koenig. They thanked her for protecting the students and one man began to cry after shaking the prosecutor's hand.
Bennett also ordered Aguilar to pay restitution to the victims and ordered him to have no contact with them.

Former Deerfield pastor pleads guilty,
receives probation in child sex abuse case
Jim Newton News-Sun
A former Deerfield pastor charged with having sexual contact with a teenager at his former church has been sentenced to two years of sex offender probation after pleading guilty to criminal sexual abuse in a negotiated resolution to the case.
In addition to the probation and its restrictions, Samuel Kee was also sentenced to 12 months of periodic imprisonment, which will be stayed provided that he follows all requirements of the sentence, Lake County Circuit Judge Victoria Rossetti ruled.
Under the agreement, finalized Dec. 12, Kee must register as a child sex offender; undergo evaluation and attend treatment programs as required by probation officials; perform 200 hours of public service; have no contact with minors; and must obey restrictions on his use of the internet. He also faces random drug and alcohol testing.
Assistant State's Attorney Jason Grindel said that charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse were dismissed in exchange for the guilty plea. Probation was an option for all of the initial charges Kee faced, Grindel said.
Kee turned himself in
Kee, of Lake Zurich, was charged in 2015 after voluntarily walking into the Deerfield Police Department and confessing to an inappropriate relationship with a 16-year-old girl in the summer of 2014.
Kee was pastor of teaching and discipleship at the North Suburban Evangelical Free Church when he was charged. The girl was a member of the congregation. Kee resigned his church position about 11 days after he reported the relationship to police. He had served as pastor for five years.
Police said he admitted to touching the girl in inappropriate places on her body. There were no charges involving force.
Deerfield Deputy police Chief Tom Keane said at the time that Kee "just walked into the police station and said he had to confess to a crime. We had to kind of work backward and locate the victim and talk to the victim and build the case."
Kee spent two days in Lake County jail and then was released after posting 10 percent of his $300,000 bail.
Oldham County mother accused of
sexual abuse of a 14-year-old boy
By Rachel Collier
CRESTWOOD, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Crestwood mother is accused of giving her son's friends booze, pot and sexually abusing a 14-year-old boy.
A woman who we aren't identifying to protect her 14-year-old son said she trusted Anne Downing, 37. She said she knew Downing, and their boys go to middle school together.
"There was a group of children that were friends, and they we going to have a little sleepover, hangout," she said. "I thought pizza and games, as most teenagers do."
But that night, she and the other parents got a phone call they never expected.
Police went to Downing's home on Manor Drive in Crestwood looking for a missing teenager. Officers said they could smell pot and found teens with several open bottles of booze.
"We all were notified and called by police at 1:30 a.m. to pick our children up, that they were severely intoxicated," the woman said. "When I pulled up, the whole street was full of cop cars, parents."
The next day, she went through her son's phone and said she found texts from Downing, some of which are too graphic to share.
"Very obscene sexual messages informing my child of sexual things he has no idea about," the woman said.
One text shown by the mother says, "The more I drink the more touchy-feely I am." The mother said she confronted Downing in person.
"I specifically asked her what was going on between her and my son, and she admitted to my son ... that she had oral sex with my son, that she had video sex with my son numerous times and had sent him pictures and provided him anything and everything he wanted," she said.
Police said Downing provided alcohol and marijuana to male teens at her home on at least three occasions in October and November. They also said she engaged with sexually explicit conversations with them on social media. She faces several charges including sodomy and unlawful transaction with a minor.
The mother of the alleged victim said she is angry, hurt and confused.
"I have blocked everything out since I have been told face-to-face that someone has hurt my child," she said. "I can't take it back, it kills me. Tainting a child's innocence, no matter how old, they are wrong."
Oldham County Police said parents should talk to their children and call them if they believe their child may have been involved.
Downing was arrested this week and is out of jail after posting bond. She is due in court next month. A judge ordered her to have no minors in her home except for her own children. Her attorney said she has no other record.
And, judge, do you think her own minors should be in the home? Why?

California woman denies sexually abusing child
for nearly 2 years
By BEATRIZ E. VALENZUELA San Bernardino Sun
A Hesperia woman accused of sexually abusing a child for nearly two years was arrested after the victim came forward and reported the attacks, San Bernardino County sheriff’s officials said.
Maria Quintero Brizeno, 29, was arrested and charged with multiple counts of child sexual abuse including suspicion of oral copulation with a child under the age of 10, lewd acts with a child under the age of 14 and forced oral copulation of a child under the age of 14, according to court records.
The girl came forward and told a Los Angeles Police Department officer about the sexual attacks, according to Deputy Olivia Bozek, spokeswoman for the Sheriff’s Department. The girl told investigators the abuse had been taking place for nearly two years in the unincorporated area of Victorville, officials said. LAPD detectives then forwarded the case to the Sheriff’s Department.
The exact relationship between the girl and Quintero Brizeno was not released to protect the victim’s identity, Bozek would only say the victim knew the Hesperia woman.
Deputy Thomas Gates conducted an extensive investigation and obtained an arrest warrant for Quintero Brizeno who was then arrested at sheriff’s headquarters on Dec. 22.
The San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office subsequently charged the 29-year-old with six counts of child sex abuse, court records show. She then pleaded not guilty to all counts in Victorville Superior Court Wednesday.
Authorities do not believe there are any other victims out there.
Detectives ask any one who may have information on the case, to call the Victor Valley sheriff’s station at 760-552-6800.
Sex abuse case against Mormon Church leaders
to go to trial in WVa
By Associated Press
MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — A jury in West Virginia will hear the evidence against the Mormon Church in a lawsuit accusing local church officials of covering up allegations that the son of officials abused 12 children over more than five years.
The Journal reports that the lawsuit, filed by children who were between the ages of 3 and 12 when they say they were sexually abused by Christopher Michael Jensen, will go to trial Jan. 8 in Berkeley County. Jensen was sentenced in 2013 to 35 to 75 years in prison for sexually abusing two minors.
The lawsuit was initially filed in 2013, and accuses the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and its leaders of covering up the abuse, enabling Jensen to commit further acts and trying to intimidate plaintiffs' families.
The family’s attorneys in the civil case believe local church leaders discussed the allegations of abuse by Jensen as early as 2007 and that no one reported the allegations to law enforcement. The lawyers also claim that church leaders in Utah knew Jensen was convicted of other sex-related crimes in Utah back in 2004.
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints provided this two-paragraph statement to WJLA:
“The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints does not tolerate abuse of any kind. We take seriously our role as a recognized national leader in ensuring that child abuse prevention efforts are in place and followed – as happened in this case. In fact, it was the Church that first encouraged the parents to report the abuse and then made their own report as a confirmation. While the Church is, and will always be, heartbroken about the terrible actions of this individual, we are thankful that he is behind bars, where he should be. We encourage parents to come forth immediately to authorities when they believe their child has been the subject of harm.”
“The Church cannot comment specifically on pending litigation, but will present a solid case reaffirming its commitment to not only keeping children safe, but also taking action when there is reason to believe that harm has occurred.”
Upstate NY Pub owner pleads not guilty
to sex abuse charges
PENN YAN — Lloyd’s Limited Pub owner Bob Champlin has been arraigned on felony charges in connection with alleged sexual assaults that took place inside his bar on Christmas Eve.
On Thursday, Champlin pleaded not guilty to first-degree criminal sexual act, attempted rape, sexual abuse, forcible touching, and unlawfully dealing with a child, as one of the females was under 21 years old and allegedly served alcohol.
Champlin said nothing when he turned himself in Thursday afternoon.
A graphic video was taken of a sexual assault at the bar and posted to social media. A female was unconscious, face down on the bar during the attack.
When the community forwarded the video to police, officers executed a search warrant for surveillance equipment from inside the bar.
“Much later on, it would actually be in the early morning hours of Christmas morning, she — the second female who videotaped the incident to begin with — was seen passed out on the floor behind the bar and Mr. Champlin was touching her underneath her clothes as well,” said Penn Yan Police Chief Thomas Dunham.
When questioned, Champlin’s lawyer, Neil Gunther, said he had no comment about the video. “I haven’t seen the video at this point,” Gunther said.
Police are continuing to investigate, including possible charges against the woman who took the video. “We’re still reviewing the whole incident and event right now,” Dunham said. “We don’t know exactly what the intent was of that.”
During his arraignment, Champlin’s attorney told the judge that Champlin has voluntarily entered rehab for alcohol addiction.
If he is convicted of the top charge, Champlin could see a 20-year prison term.
Champlin is being held in jail on $50,000 cash bail or $100,000 bond. He is due back in court Jan. 2.
66-year-old Alabama man jailed on charges
of abusing, sodomizing children
By Ashley Remkus email@example.com
A 66-year-old Madison County man is jailed on multiple charges of sexually abusing children.
Homer Clifford Webb is charged with two counts of first-degree sodomy and one count of sexual abuse of a child younger than 12, records show. Webb is held with bail set at $150,000.
Webb was arrested by sheriff's deputies when SWAT officers went to his home this week to serve a warrant. Webb came under investigation in late November when an anonymous caller reported to the Department of Human Resources suspicions of child sexual abuse, said sheriff's Lt. Donny Shaw.
Sheriff's deputies and the local branch of the National Child Advocacy Center investigated the report and interviewed those believed to be involved, Shaw said. The victims are two children younger than 12, according to authorities. Shaw said Webb had been abusing the children for a few months.
Few details about the case are being released to protect the identity of the victims. Webb knew the children, and some of the abuse happened at his Madison County home, Shaw said.
"There was enough evidence and probable cause to obtain warrants," the lieutenant said.
If convicted, Webb faces up to life in prison and would be required to register as a sex offender.

California pair facing child sex abuse,
child porn charges
A federal court judge granted a pretrial conference to be continued to January for Aptos baby sitter, after-school counselor and accused child pornographer Ryan Spencer, 20. Spencer remains in custody at Glenn Dyer Detention Facility in Oakland held without bail. He is accused of recording and sharing footage of boys in his care being fondled and having sex, according to court documents.
Spencer and Bryan Petersen, 25, of Tiburon were arrested in April after authorities found more than 10,000 images and videos of child pornography exchanged on electronic devices and the messaging app, Kik. The defendants built their lives around seeking access to children, U.S. Attorney Brian Stretch wrote in a motion May 3.
Spencer preferred children 4 to 8 years old, according to court documents.
Petersen, an Eagle Scout who led camping trips for young boys, also worked as a tutor and chess coach, Stretch wrote. Petersen pleaded guilty to conspiring to distribute child pornography, and producing, receiving, distributing and having child pornography, according to court documents. His sentencing has not been scheduled.
Spencer was due to attend a December hearing in U.S. District Court in San Francisco to respond to a prosecution request for him to unlock encrypted electronic devices seized from his home by the FBI. That hearing was delayed to 1:30 p.m. Jan. 23 to give Spencer time to file an opposition motion, according to court documents.
