Another Horror Family in Alabama Leads Today's USA PnP List
Former Alabama investigator indicted on
child sex abuse charges
Of all the states in the US, the most seriously twisted families
seem to come from AlabamaBy Anna Beahm firstname.lastname@example.org
A former Madison County Sheriff's Office Investigator has been indicted on sexual abuse charges, according to the office of the Attorney General.
Roland Campos, 64, was indicted on one count of first-degree sexual abuse and one count of second-degree sexual abuse, according to the indictment.
The indictments were filed in Madison County Circuit Court Friday.
On Jan. 16, a Madison County grand jury found Campos had sexual contact by forcible compulsion with a person identified as "D.W." The grand jury also found he had sexual contact with "D.W." when the victim was older than 12 years old but less than 16 years old, according to the indictment.
Police have told AL.com the victim is a family member. Court documents allege the victim was 12 years old when he fondled her.
Campos was arrested and charged (6th story on link) with two counts of first-degree sexual abuse Aug. 18. He resigned his position at the sheriff's office the same day.
Huntsville police Lt. Stacy Bates earlier this week told AL.com that HPD was called to investigate after the sheriff's office was notified about the child's allegations. The report was made Friday around 3 p.m., but the alleged abuse occurred months earlier, police have said.
He was a 10-year employee of the sheriff's office, where he investigated white-collar crimes, like fraud and identity theft. He reportedly resigned his position just a few hours after the abuse was reported to police.
If convicted, Campos faces up to 20 years in prison and would be required to register as a sex offender.
Campos was released from the Madison County Jail on a $10,000 bond the next day.
Son serving 2 life terms for horrific CSA
Other members of Campos' family have been convicted of sex abuse crimes. His son, also named Roland Campos, was sentenced to two terms of life in prison without parole in 2014 for sodomizing a 5-year-old girl while he was allegedly dating the victim's mother.
The former investigator’s brother, Russell Leland Campos, was indicted in 2011 on two counts of sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12, but that case never went to trial for lack of evidence.
Michael Walker, pastor of Southside Baptist Church, Huntsville, is accused of failing to report (9th story on link) sexual abuse of a child who allegedly was fondled by the now-former sheriff's deputy.

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – A Madison County, Ala., man, Roland Campos, was sentenced to two terms of life in prison without parole here today for sodomizing a 5-year-old girl while he was reportedly dating the victim's mother. The sentence was handed down by Madison County Circuit Judge Jim Smith.
"He's never going to hurt another little girl," victim's family spokeswoman Kathy Zentner said after the brief sentencing appearance.
A jury found the 35-year-old Campos guilty in June of two counts of sodomy and two counts of sexual abuse. He was given 20 years in prison today for each of the sex abuse charges.
"She will never get over this," prosecutor Kelly Godwin of the state Attorney General's Office said of the victim. Godwin told the judge the girl has repeated nightmares, and she said Campos expressed no remorse on the witness stand.
The Attorney General's Office prosecuted the case because of a conflict of interest affecting local prosecutors. Campos' father is an investigator with the Madison County Sheriff's Department.
Zenter said after the trial the child was brave to come forward and is making progress with the help of the National Children's Advocacy Center in Huntsville.

sentenced to 55 years in prison
by CBS 4 News
A jury on Friday sentenced a Brownsville man found guilty of sexually abusing children to 55 years in prison, according to a news release from the Cameron County District Attorney's Office.
Eloy Morin, 49, of Brownsville was found guilty of indecency with a child by contact and two counts of continuous sexual abuse of a child on Thursday.
According to the new release, Morin sexually abused two children under the age of 14. The children reportedly did not report the abuse "out of fear of what would occur if they told." After one victim came forward, another child reported abuse to law enforcement.
Cameron County District Attorney Luis V. Saenz stated in the news release:
“ On behalf of the citizens of Cameron County my most sincere thank you to the jury for showing the courage to do the right thing. And congratulations to the Child Abuse Unit for once again removing a sexual predator from our community.”
Bill & Ted Star Alex Winter Says He Was Sexually Abused as a Child Actor
Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure star Alex Winter has spoken about how filming the cult ‘80s movies helped him come to terms with his childhood sexual abuse.
Winter, 52, says he was sexually abused as a child actor “in the 1970s” by a man who is now dead, and that he later suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) as a consequence.
Speaking to BBC Radio 5 in his first broadcast interview about his childhood trauma, the actor – who began his career doing TV commercials and theater in St. Louis, before appearing on Broadway aged 12 – describes the experience of working alongside co-star Keanu Reeves in 1989’s Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure as “seminal” in his recovery from the trauma.
“I came out of film school and I was really beginning to do a lot of this therapy work. A lot of things were really colliding in my head at that time,” Winter told BBC radio presenter Adrian Chiles, Friday.
“For me personally, in terms of the experience, it was an opportunity to just be childlike and play, and innocent and sweet, and it was really, really helpful for me mentally.”
Thanks to the fun and family environment created by the Bill & Ted crew, Winter said he was able address his trauma for the first time.
“I didn’t realize it, but it was very important,” he added. “I was in a pretty dark place around that time because I had just been going and going and going, and I hadn’t stopped. You know, I just barreled through the rest of those shows [he first appeared on Broadway in a production of The King & I, opposite Yul Brynner], I barreled through college. I just hadn’t really paused and that’s a recipe for disaster if you’re carrying that kind of trauma. So, it was an opportunity to pause and just be some place safe and sweet and fun and childlike.”
Winter didn’t go public at the time about the alleged abuse, he said, because “there is a power dynamic that does put you in position where you’re afraid for your own safety. So there’s that, on top of the taboo nature of being public.”
He explained that he had the “lightbulb” moment of coming forward with his story when similar stories began to emerge in Hollywood in recent months. “I was absolutely flummoxed,” Winter said.
Since filming Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and its 1991 sequel Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, Winter has continued to act, while also working as a producer and director. He’s also set to return the slacker franchise in the recently announced third installment, Bill & Ted Face the Music.
“The idea of revisiting them in middle age is really, there is a sweetness to that,” Winter said. “The world of Bill & Ted is a very sweet and fun place to run around in.”

Oregon child sex offender sentenced to life-plus term
The East Oregonian
PENDLETON — Jeffrey Allen Pierce of Milton-Freewater could spend the rest of his life in prison for years of sexually abusing a girl.
Pierce, 40, is to be sentenced today in Umatilla County Circuit Court on 36 counts.
Defense attorney Thomas Gray of Pendleton recommended a prison sentence of 25 years — the mandatory minimum — according to the Jan. 29 memo he filed with the court.
Jaclyn Jenkins, the chief deputy prosecutor for the county District Attorney’s Office, in her Jan. 26 sentencing recommendation asked for 162.5 years for Pierce. Jenkins corrected that on Jan. 31 with an amended recommendation of 212.5 years.
“Defendant’s actions,” Jenkins stated in the memo, “and the ramifications of his actions on [the victim], who suffered both emotionally and physically, make a strong sentence a necessity.”
Jenkins in the 19-page document detailed the scope of Pierce’s atrocities against the girl. Pierce began the abuse and molestation around 2008 when she was 7 or 8 and continued the crimes until 2013. According to Jenkins, the girl during the January trial testified Pierce abused her “probably once a week-ish” between 2011 and the summer of 2012.
Jenkins stated the girl also told the jury she “just wanted it to be over with” and she felt scared and trapped and did not know what to do.
The state charged Pierce with 25 counts each of first-degree sodomy and first-degree sexual abuse. The state dismissed 14 counts at trial. Jenkins in the memo stated that the dismissals were due to concern those counts could overlap with other charges.
The jury returned unanimous guilty verdicts on the remaining 36 charges — 17 for sodomy and 19 for sexual abuse.
