Child Sex Abuse Stories Including 2 From Texas and 5 From Oregon on Today's USA PnP List

Probation terminated after former Illinois priest
removed to Colombia

Aurora Beacon-News

A former Aurora priest who avoided a jury trial on child sex abuse charges through a misdemeanor plea deal is back in Colombia, and his probation in Kane County has been terminated.

Alfredo Pedraza Arias, 51, lost his temporary religious worker visa after he was charged with sexually abusing two girls (9th story on link) at Sacred Heart Church in Aurora and at one of the girls' homes between 2012 and 2014. In June 2017, a federal immigration judge ordered Arias removed from the United States, a decision the priest waived his right to appeal.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement deportation officers arrested Arias Feb. 10 at the Kane County jail in St. Charles after he completed his criminal sentence, ICE spokeswoman Nicole Alberico said in an email. On Feb. 26, ICE deportation officers executed the removal order and removed Arias to Colombia, Alberico said.

On Friday, an order closed the Kane County criminal case, terminating his probation.

As trial was approaching, Arias, who had previously pleaded not guilty to a five-count felony indictment, pleaded guilty to battery, a class A misdemeanor. He agreed to a sentence of 205 days in county jail with credit for time served, and was released as scheduled Feb. 10.

The deal explicitly did not require Arias to register as a sex offender, though it did put him on sex offender probation for 24 months and stipulated he'd have to comply with a sex offender evaluation and treatment, if so ordered. He was also to pay $410 in costs and have no contact with either victim or their immediate family members.

Kane County Circuit Judge Linda Abrahamson accepted the plea. Kane County State's Attorney Joe McMahon previously referenced the pending deportation when addressing the plea agreement.

Arias' attorney, David Camic, has said the plea is supported by the facts, maintaining that Arias didn't commit a criminal sex offense. When the judge raised Arias bail in an attempt to keep him in custody and away from ICE, Camic said parishioners came up with thousands of dollars to free him again.

Sacred Heart Rev. Msgr. Arquimedes Vallejo said his knowledge of the case came from television and the papers, and that he trusted in the courts and the justice system.

Vallejo said he couldn't say much, but he knew a lot of people at the church said they missed Arias. He said he had not talked to the families of the priest's accusers. "Everyone has the right to ... express their feelings," Vallejo said. Vallejo said he was not aware of any effort to bring Arias back to the U.S.

Pedophiles are often one of the most popular people in their social circles. Congregations frequently refuse to believe that priests and pastors can be pedophiles because they seem so nice. Consequently, they put their children, or other's children at risk.

Where there is honey, there are flies - where there are children, there will be pedophiles.





Idaho Falls man with sex abuse conviction
faces new charge
By JOHNATHAN HOGAN

An Idaho Falls man with a history of child sex abuse was arrested March 6 for inappropriately touching a teen girl.

Justin Dee Jensen, 41, has been charged with sexual battery of a minor 16 to 17 years of age.

The victim’s mother reported the abuse to police in November after learning Jensen had touched the girl sexually several times, including in front of another minor child.

When an Idaho Falls Police Department officer called to speak to the victim’s mother, Jensen answered instead. The officer said he could not speak to him about why he was calling.

A minute after the call ended, the officer received a call from the victim’s mother. The officer arranged to meet with a Child Protective Services employee to interview the victim. After the victim discussed Jensen’s sexual abuse, police contacted him and told him to avoid contact with the victim.

During a forensic interview a few days later, the victim said Jensen had touched her multiple times and that she tried to avoid him, but was concerned he would become upset.

Jensen told police he wasn’t sure what was inappropriate. He said he was massaging the victim while she was in pain, and that he had done so two or three times, then corrected himself and said it was eight times.

Jensen pleaded guilty in October 2000 to sexual abuse of a child under 16 in Madison County. He was placed on retained jurisdiction. On March 20, 2001, he was released on probation that lasted until 2010.

The detective asked if Jensen had been relapsing. He replied “I know I’ll never be cured.”

Sexual battery of a minor child 16 to 17 years of age is punishable with up to 25 years in prison. A no-contact order has been issued between Jensen and the victim. His bond was set at $50,000.

A no-contact order hearing is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. March 21. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 1:30 p.m. March 21.

E. Texas woman sentenced to 50 years for
repeated child sex abuse
by KFDM/Fox 4

BEAUMONT — A 39-year-old Nederland woman has been sentenced to 50 years in prison for repeatedly sexually abusing a child.

A jury found Tamora Angel Foster guilty last Friday and assessed the 50-year punishment. District Judge Raquel West formally sentenced Foster Monday.

In the summers of 2015 and 2016, Foster forced a child to engage in sexual intercourse and oral sex on separate occasions, according to Jefferson County prosecutors.

The victim was 11 and 12 years old at the time.

Kim Pipkin, who prosecuted the case, credited law enforcement, Child Protective Services, witnesses and the jury for their roles in securing the verdict.

“It’s hard to imagine a more emotional and disturbing set of facts than those in this case," Pipkin said in a news release. "It was an especially difficult week for everyone involved."

Foster must serve every day of her sentence and will never be eligible for parole. She must also register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.





Child sex victim testifies to years of abuse in Ohio
Richard Wilson 

A week-long trial of a man charged with raping a child at a home in Xenia ended late Friday with a guilty verdict.

A jury found 36-year-old Anthony R. Moore guilty on three counts of rape by force, five counts of rape of a child under age 13 and five counts of gross sexual imposition.

The sex crimes first came to light in June 2017 when the mother of the alleged victim, who was known to the defendant, contacted Xenia police, according to records on file with the court.

The mother told police she was sleeping on the couch and her daughter was sleeping in her bed when the defendant got in bed with her daughter, according to the detective’s statement that led to Moore’s arrest on July 2, 2017.

The victim pretended to be asleep because she was afraid of Moore as he proceeded to have intercourse with her, according to the detective’s statement.

That incident was count 19, and the investigation revealed that the abuse had been ongoing for more than two years, starting when the victim was 11 years old, according to Alice DeWine, assistant prosecutor.

 DeWine said the victim testified for four hours during the second day of the trial. “The victim’s family believed her. That’s what got this started,” she said. “She testified that at some point it was happening every day.”

DeWine said Judge Buckwalter handed the case to the jury shortly before 4 p.m. Friday and they returned a verdict about three hours later. “When I went back to talk to the jury, almost all of them were in tears. It was just very emotional for them,” DeWine said.

Moore was originally indicted on 20 sex-related charges in July 2017. Moore’s attorney Adrian King said several charges against his client were dropped after the state rested its case.

King said a lot of witnesses were called to testify in the case. He said the court will be looking into Moore’s background to better inform Judge Michael Buckwalter on what the most appropriate sentence should be.

“It was a sad day for everbyody involved, the families of both the victim as well as my client,” King said. “A situation like this is one where nobody wins.”

King said he plans to appeal the outcome of the trial. Moore faces a minimum sentence of 10 years to life and a maximum of 108 years in prison, DeWine said.

Sentencing is scheduled to happen in April.





Oregon man arrested in Oklahoma on
child sex abuse charges

Authorities said a man from Junction City left the state after being notified of sex abuse charges against him. Court documents show that a 10-year-old child was abused while in his care.
Posted By: Monica Hernandez

JUNCTION CITY, Ore. -- A Junction City man who is accused of sexually abusing his foster daughter has been arrested after fleeing the state.

Joe Albert Raygosa was arrested in Lawton, Oklahoma on an Oregon warrant. He was brought back to Oregon on Sunday. He appeared in court on Monday and pleaded not guilty to 12 counts of sex abuse, rape, and unlawful penetration.

Raygosa is accused of touching a 10-year-old child, forcing himself on her, taking nude photos of her, and showing her porn at his house in Junction City.

A search warrant affidavit shows the child was in Raygosa's care from June 2016 to July 2017. Police said the abuse was reported after she moved to another foster home.

Court documents show the child said "I feel brave" to herself after reporting the alleged abuse.

You are brave, Sweetie. You're a hero.

Raygosa was notified of the allegations in October of 2017. He agreed to hand over his cellphone but when police tried to contact him Raygosa didn't get back to them.

What? He was notified by phone? Why wasn't his cellphone confiscated when he was informed? That's crazy!

Investigators went to his house in November but found it empty. Neighbors told them Raygosa left a few weeks earlier in a car full of bags. Raygosa will be back in court on April 16th.

By MTN News -

Garland Lowman had been scheduled to appear in Gallatin County Justice Court since last Wednesday; for unknown reasons, he was not in court last week and appeared Monday morning.

Judge Bryan Adams set Lowman’s bail at $500,000 due to the alleged violations and Lowman’s failure to comply with conditions of probation for earlier convictions. Lowman’s next court appearance is set for April 6.

(First report) Story continues below:

A Belgrade man who reportedly sent child pornography to his adult son is facing a charge of sexual abuse of children.

Garland W. Lowman, 39, is a registered sexual offender and currently under supervision by the Montana Department of Corrections.

According to charging documents, a deputy from the Lane County Sheriff’s Office in Oregon called Gallatin County Sheriff’s Office on Tuesday, Mar. 6, to report that an Oregon man reported he received Facebook messages from his father that contained child pornography and were sexually explicit.

When contacted by law enforcement and probation officers, Lowman admitted sending photographs to his son but stated they were images he downloaded from the internet, but he didn’t consider them child pornography.

A search of Lowman’s cell phone revealed at least three images of prepubescent females, fully nude.





Child sex abuse sting in Oregon catches man
Pamplin Media Group 

A 52-year-old man from LaPine was arrested Sunday, March 11, following a several-month St. Helens Police Department online child sex abuse sting.

Dean ONeill Cox of LaPine had been communicating with a St. Helens police officer who he thought was a 15-year-old girl through an instant messaging platform over several months, according to a Tuesday, March 13, press release from the St. Helens Police Department. In addition to graphic text messages, Cox also sent explicit photographs of himself, the release states.

On Sunday, March 11, Cox drove to St. Helens with the intent of meeting the girl in the general area of Highway 30 and Gable Road. At about 11 a.m., officers found him waiting in the parking lot near Taco Bell.

Cox was arrested and lodged in the Columbia County Jail on charges of online corruption of a minor, computer crime, luring a minor and unlawful possession of methamphetamine.

This case illustrates the dangers associated with online communication, the release stated. St. Helens police noted that parents should continually engage children about online safety and know who is connecting with their children.

If children have online accounts, check privacy settings, the release continues. The default settings may expose children more information than parents would like. Change settings to the highest level of privacy.

You never know who is snooping around their social media profiles, the release warns. Cox was still lodged in the Columbia County Jail as of Tuesday.





Oregon man facing child sex abuse charges involving
girl younger than 12
Lauren Hernandez, Statesman Journal 

A Salem man is facing 11 counts of child sexual abuse for the alleged abuse of a girl younger than 12 years old.

Robert Lee Bennett, 39, allegedly sodomized, raped and touched the girl's genitals over the course of a roughly two-month period starting in January and lasting until March 5, 2018, according to Marion County court records.

On at least one occasion, Bennett allegedly provided a visual representation of sexual conduct to the girl in an attempt to lure her to engage in similar sexual conduct. The sexual abuse is believed to have continued until the day before he was arrested, according to court records.

Bennett was arrested in the early morning hours of Tuesday, March 6, on multiple charges including first-degree rape, three counts of first-degree sodomy, three counts of first-degree unlawful sexual penetration, three counts of first-degree sexual abuse and luring a minor.

He is being held in Marion County Jail on $1 million bail. Bennett is scheduled for a plea hearing at 8:30 a.m. Thursday, March 15, with Judge Heidi Strauch.

First-degree rape, first-degree sodomy, first-degree sexual abuse and first-degree unlawful sexual penetration are all Measure 11 crimes carrying mandatory minimum sentences. First-degree rape, sodomy and unlawful sexual penetration carry roughly eight years in jail if convicted. Sexual abuse carries a roughly six-year sentence if convicted. 

What do you want to bet he will plea deal down to a single charge and get an 8 year sentence when he deserves 100 years?






Virgin Is. man facing child sex abuse charges
in Oregon posts bail
LILLIAN SCHROCK Corvallis Gazette-Times  

A man who was booked into the Benton County Jail last month (3rd story on link) on child sex abuse charges was released from custody Monday after posting bail.

A family member posted $40,000 security on behalf of Jason Donald Monigold. The 42-year-old man faces three counts of third-degree rape and one count each of first-degree online sexual corruption of a child, luring a minor and unlawful delivery of marijuana to a minor. Monigold has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Benton County Circuit Court Judge Locke Williams originally imposed $500,000 security in the case. The judge lowered the bail amount to $400,000 following a pretrial release hearing. Williams ordered Monigold not to have contact with minor girls if he was released from jail.

Authorities allege Monigold, who lives on the U.S. Virgin Islands, participated in online conversations with a girl under 16 and the conversations were sexually explicit in nature, according to court documents. Monigold visited Oregon in August 2017, during which time he allegedly provided the girl with alcohol and marijuana and engaged in sexual activity with the girl, according to the court documents.

Officers with the Virgin Islands Police Department arrested Monigold on Jan. 2. Monigold was booked into the Benton County Jail on Feb. 8.

Monigold’s five-day trial is set to begin May 7. He is being represented by Albany defense attorney Forrest Reid.

JOY GREENWALD

A Cheyenne man who admitted to having sex with a 9-year-old girl when he was 43 will likely spend the rest of his life in prison.

Laramie County District Court Judge Steven Sharpe, last week, sentenced 50-year-old Roney McClintock to two consecutive 25 to 30 year prison terms.

McClintock pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor in December. He said the incidents occurred in his vehicle between Jan. 1, 2011 and Dec. 31, 2012.

McClintock was previously convicted in Nebraska in 2006 of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor.





California Daycare Owner Arrested For
Lewd Acts On A Child

AGOURA HILLS (CBSLA) – The owner of an Agoura Hills daycare facility has been arrested on allegations of child sexual abuse.


Paul Lopez, 72, was taken into custody March 7 on one count of lewd or lascivious acts on a minor.

Lopez runs The Small Wonder Academy, a daycare facility for children ages three months to four years, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reports.

The exact details of the allegations and the number of victims involved was not disclosed.

Lopez was released after posting $100,000 bail, and is awaiting arraignment.

Anyone with information on the case should call the sheriff’s department at 877-710-5273.

Men should never be involved with daycares. Parents should never put their children into daycares where men are present. There is at least one story a week on this blog about men abusing toddlers in daycares. There should be an automatic doubling of sentences for such perverts.





Old NY man cleared of dozens of felony
child sex abuse charges
KATHY WHYTE, WNBF

A Cortland man, who was arrested in July of 2016 on allegations that he had sexually abused a girl under the age of 11 over the course of about 7 years is a free man.

84 year old Arthur Ward has been found not guilty on all charges, including 70 felony counts.

Authorities say they spent 7 months investigating the case but a jury deliberated an hour before delivering the not-guilty verdict March 9.

At the time of his arrest, Cortland Police said Ward was charged with 58 counts of sexual abuse and 12 additional sexual abuse counts for alleged sexual contact with a child under the ages of 13, course of sexual conduct against a child, felony attempted sexual abuse and misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child.

Amazing! All those charges and none of them stuck! There's a lot more to this story, but it appears we are not going to get it from WNBF.
