Evangelist Acton Bowen jailed on new
child sex charges in Alabama
by James Franklin & Stephen Quinn

ETOWAH COUNTY, Ala. (WBMA) — Acton Bowen was arrested Tuesday and booked into the Etowah County Jail on new charges of sexual abuse, sodomy, and enticing a child.

The Etowah County Sheriff's Office says the charges are based off the alleged sexual abuse of four juveniles between the ages of 12-17. Some of the allegations occurred a decade ago. Those alleged victims are now adults.

"Disappointed, some are angered, confused. Anytime you have a person who betrays themselve(s) to be of integrity, of character, of faith, and then to find out that it's all a lie? It's very disappointing," said Etowah County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman Natalie Barton. 

Authorities in Etowah County say they were contacted by the alleged victims after news of Bowen's initial arrest became public. Investigators raised the possibility Tuesday that the list of Bowen's accusers could continue to grow.

"Absolutely. We do believe that there are more victims out there. Some of them may choose to come forward on their own," said Barton. 

Bowen was kept in a cell away from other inmates Tuesday as a precaution. The 37-year-old was booked on a $500,000 all-cash bond. Etowah County Sheriff Todd Entrekin personally met with Bowen who surrendered peacefully to the sheriff at a mutually agreed on location Barton said.

Bowen's attorneys dismissed the most recent allegations as unsubstantiated rumors and promised that Bowen would weather the storm.

Tuesday's charges follow Bowen's arrest last week in Hoover on charges of Sodomy 2nd degree, Enticing a child to enter a vehicle, house, etc., for immoral purposes, and sexual abuse 2nd degree. The victim in that case was an underage family acquaintance and is currently doing well and has been in a safe environment since police were first notified.

The bad news for Bowen continued last Friday when his wife, Ashley Nabors Bowen, filed for divorce and claimed that she feared for her safety. An Etowah County judge Friday granted her immediate temporary exclusive possession of their home in Southside while restraining him and her from any contact or behavior intended to harass, threaten or intimidate the other.

Bowen's father, Paul Bowen, declined ABC 33/40 News' request for an interview Tuesday. Last week the older Bowen denied the charges against his son.

Bowen had worked as a youth minister nearly a decade ago at the CrossPoint Community Church before it closed. There he worked closely with students from Coosa Christian School where he also graduated. Bowen has spent much of his adult life mentoring young children according to his father.

"Parents encourage their children to be in Acton's presence and Acton's guidance and Acton's ministry because Acton has a passion for what he does and it's a God-given gift."

Bowen, a well known pastor and evangelist, is the founder of Acton Bowen Outreach Ministries. The Southside resident has served as a contributor on Fox News and has been reported to have served as a spiritual mentor to Hollywood celebrities including Justin Bieber.

The Etowah County Sheriff's Office asks that anyone with information related to the case call investigator Brandi Fuller at (256) 546-2825.

Idaho man given 'rider' for child sex abuse

By JOHNATHAN HOGAN jhogan@postregister.com

An Ammon man was sentenced to a rider program Wednesday for sex abuse of a child.

Arick Vance Levacy-Sabin, 28, was arrested in August following an investigation by the Idaho Falls Police Department. The victim reported the incident happened in July 2016 when she was 14. She gave a victim-impact statement Wednesday describing how Levacy-Sabin’s abuse had changed her life.

“It’s hard for me to trust male teachers or male counselors,” she said.

The girl, now 16, said she had struggled with school, loss of sleep and depression since she was assaulted.

Levacy-Sabin was originally charged with lewd conduct with a child under 16, but it was reduced to injury to a child as part of a plea bargain.

Levacy-Sabin was given an underlying sentence of three to 10 years in prison. A rider is a six-month to yearlong intensive rehabilitation program held at a minimum security prison. If Levacy-Sabin is unsuccessful during his rider, District Judge Bruce Pickett can impose the underlying prison term.

Defense Attorney Douglas Knutson said his client was devastated about his actions. Knutson said in court his client had not spoken to his wife about what happened until after accepting the plea agreement.

“I don’t think a day has gone by that he doesn’t have a terrible, aching regret about the choices he made that day,” Knutson said.

Knutson said his client has no previous criminal history and was truthful during a polygraph test about whether there had been other incidents with other victims. He asked Pickett to give his client probation with treatment requirements, as recommended by the presentence investigator.

Levacy-Sabin said he regretted his choices and that he wanted to come back from his crimes to raise his children and be with his family. “This has been quite the ordeal, and I am so sorry for what happened and what I did,” Levacy-Sabin said.

Special Prosecutor Rob Wood said that while Levacy-Sabin may be fine on probation with treatment, the recommendation was inappropriate. “In a crime like this, there’s a victim,” Wood said. “It’s not just about the defendant.”

Pickett agreed that probation would downplay the seriousness of crime. He was also critical of the defendant betraying the victim’s trust and taking advantage of a minor. “The reason the laws are in place is because we don’t expect 14-year-old girls to know how to handle these situations,” Pickett said.

Levacy-Sabin was also sentenced to a $1,000 fine and a $5,000 civil penalty.

Utah man gets 100 years in prison for
sexual abuse of girls

OGDEN — A 38-year-old Utah man convicted of sexually abusing five young girls will spend the rest of his life behind bars.

A judge in Ogden sentenced Jacob Streeper, of Riverdale, to at least 100 years in prison. He still faces sentencing for two additional felony charges after he violated a court order and contacted victims after his arrest.

Streeper maintained his innocence during Monday's sentencing hearing but said he was "deeply sorry" for any pain he may have caused, the Standard-Examiner reports. He says he plans to appeal his conviction.

Streeper was arrested in August 2016. A jury found him guilty in March of 13 felony charges, including multiple counts of rape of a child, aggravated sexual abuse of a child and sodomy on a child.

Utah teacher pleads not guilty to child sex abuse
Associated Press

ST. GEORGE, Utah (AP) — A former school teacher in southern Utah has pleaded not guilty to charges accusing him of sexually abusing five of his past students in Washington County.

The (St. George) Spectrum reports 59-year-old Curtis Payne entered the plea to 15 counts of aggravated child sexual abuse on Tuesday in 5th District Court in St. George.

He's accused of groping and fondling young girls (8th story on link) over a period of years dating to the 1999-2000 school year.

Authorities say Payne taught at several Washington County schools over the years, including Sunrise Ridge Intermediate, Sunset Elementary and Bloomington Elementary.

Three of the counts stem from an accuser who told police in December that he groped her three or four different times while sitting on his lap behind his classroom desk.

Green Beret arrested on child sexual battery
charges in Florida

Another arrested for allegedly murdering his wife

By: WKRG Staff 

CRESTVIEW, Fla. - A Green Beret, 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), soldier was arrested on two counts of sexual battery charges and one count of child abuse. 

The Crestview Police Department Criminal Investigations Division, working in cooperation with the U.S. Army CID in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, arrested 33-year-old William Thomas Mrozek Tuesday.

In July 2017, two girls, ages 11 and 7, were visiting Mrozek in Crestview, Florida during the time of the reported incidents, according to police.

Mrozek is currently in Okaloosa County Jail without bond on two counts of sexual battery on a person less than 12 years old by a person over 18, and one count of child abuse without causing great bodily harm.

The arrest report from Crestview PD is graphic and disturbing. Too graphic and disturbing for me to post here. Suffice to say the creep was viciously cruel and completely devoid of compassion for these little girls. He should never have another opportunity to repeat his crimes.

2nd Green Beret, 7th SFG arrested

Earlier this week, another 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) soldier was arrested Sunday night for allegedly killing his estranged wife. 

Officers found 34-year-old Natasha McKinney lying on her back on the floor of the master bedroom with what appeared to be blood on her face, according to the report. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

Derek McKinney, 32, was arrested on-scene. A police report shows he was under the influence of alcohol.

Ex-St. George’s chaplain Howard White charged
with child sex abuse in N.C.
By Tom Mooney 
Journal Staff Writer 

White, 76, who was stripped of his Episcopal priesthood last fall and is behind bars in Massachusetts for raping a prep school student in the 1970s, faces nine counts alleging various sexual abuse of a juvenile boy and a girl back in the 1980s, while he worked at Grace Church in the Mountains, in Waynesville, North Carolina.

Howard W. White Jr., the former associate chaplain at St. George’s School, in Middletown, now behind bars in Massachusetts for raping a prep school student in the 1970s, is facing numerous similar charges in North Carolina.

White, 76, who was stripped of his Episcopal priesthood last fall, faces nine counts alleging various sexual abuse of a juvenile boy and a girl back in the 1980s while he worked at Grace Church in the Mountains, in Waynesville, North Carolina.

The charges, filed after his formal indictment this month by the Haywood County Grand jury, are: one count of rape; four counts of second-degree sexual offense (described as other forms of penetration); one count of second-degree rape; one count of first-degree forcible sex offense; and two counts of indecent liberties with a child.

The charges come weeks before White is scheduled to be released from the Suffolk County House of Corrections. North Carolina law enforcement officials are working to extradite him when his sentence expires.

White was one of six named perpetrators in the sex-abuse scandal at St. George’s that has rocked the Episcopal prep school since 2015.

Last May, he pleaded guilty to five counts of assault and battery for his abuse of a student with whom he twice traveled from St. George’s School to Boston in the 1970s. He was sentenced to serve 18 months but is facing early release with good time factored in.

White was the subject of a Providence Journal investigation that showed how he had left a trail of sex-abuse allegations spanning decades.

The Boston abuse happened when White befriended a male juvenile who was 15 or 16 years old during his time at St. George’s School. The victim said White lured him with fancy dinners, movies and his Porsche.

White raped the boy in Boston hotel rooms. Prosecutors said when the boy confronted White, asking him to stop, White said: “I’ll tell you what. It’s not going to stop. If you try to stop, I’ll make your life difficult.”


White allegedly admitted to school officials that he assaulted the boy in 1974. He was quietly dismissed. School officials never notified authorities.

School officials in Middletown have the blood of his victims from Waynesville on their hands. Did Waynesville officials ever complain or scream and yell about Middletown sending a pedophile to them?

White moved on to Grace Church in Waynesville.

White had been living in Bedford, Pennsylvania, serving as a volunteer priest at St. James Episcopal Church, when the St. George’s scandal broken open in December 2015.

His two accusers in the Waynesville indictment stepped forward afterward. The man told The Journal that county social services placed him with White at a church rectory when he was 15. He said he fled after White raped and sexually molested him multiple times.

The woman told the newspaper that White molested her when she was about 15. According to the indictment, White raped and molested her numerous times between August 1984 and the end of 1985.

Pennsylvania sex offender admits to new crimes,
faces 100 years in prison

By Rudy Miller rmiller@lehighvalleylive.com,

A Wilson Borough man admitted Tuesday he received child pornography while he was on supervised release for a similar crime.

Joseph Marcus had 16 images and three videos depicting sexual abuse of children when federal authorities seized the computer Oct. 26, 2017. One video had a girl between the ages of 5 and 7.

Police tracked Marcus down after he sent child pornography and discussed it over the internet. He allegedly communicated in Internet Relay Chat rooms under the aliases "SweetLilAss," and "YoungFAss."

He pleaded guilty to two counts of receiving child pornography and a single count of possession of child pornography, according to a plea memorandum filed by Assistant U.S. Attorney Sherri Stephan.

The memo says Marcus agreed to a plea deal, although it doesn't outline the terms of the deal. He faces up to 100 years in prison after pleading guilty. He'll be sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Jeffrey Schmehl.

Marcus previously spent five years in federal prison on the same charge he faces once again. He had 52 photos and six videos of child pornography in 2004 and 2005.

He was on his third year of supervised release from federal prison when he was indicted on the new charges.

Marcus was a professional photographer and one-time business leader, formerly chairing the small business council of the now defunct Two Rivers Area Chamber of Commerce.

He was a freelance photographer who formerly sold photos to The Express-Times.
