American Child Rapists and Abusers Today 10/21/15

HIV-Positive Man Charged in Child Rape Case

By Matt Barcaro

HARRISBURG, Pennsylvania — Police in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, have charged a man with raping a child while another man took video of it. 

Authorities have charged Ira Task with rape and other child sex abuse charges. 

Ira Trask
Court records show that Task admitted to police that he raped the child in April and then he forced the child to inhale amyl nitrite - a drug that can cause a high. 

Task also admitted that he is HIV positive.

Does anyone else think this guy deserves the death penalty? At the very least he should never see the light of day again.

Police say Task arranged sexual encounters with another man, William Byers-Augusta.

William Byers-Augusta
Byers-Augusta has already been charged with similar crimes involving the same child and broadcasting the rape "live" over the internet. 

Court records show that Task requested Byers-Augusta bring the child to his house in Harrisburg for sex. Police say Byers-Augusta shot video of Task raping the child, but was careful not to show Task's face.

North Middleton Township Police used moles on Task's body and jewelry he was wearing at the time to later identify him.

A detective told News 8 that more people may have been involved with abusing the same child and more children may have been abused.

LOGAN — The trial for a 57-year-old Millville man, accused of sexually abusing several teenage girls, began Tuesday with jury selection and attorneys for both sides presenting their opening statements.

Court records show Dean A. Ferguson appeared in 1st District Court. He faces five charges of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, all first-degree felonies.

Ferguson was arrested May 19, 2014, after several teenage girls claimed he sexually abused them. Cache County Sheriff’s investigators interviewed the victims before charges were filed by the Cache County Attorney’s Office. He was later released from the Cache County Jail after posting a $25,000 bond.

The trial has been postponed several times as attorneys worked to line up expert witnesses.

Ferguson faces up to five-years-to-life in prison for each charge if found guilty. The trial is scheduled to run through Friday.

Plea Deal Resolves 3 Utah Child Sex Abuse Cases

By Geoff Liesik, Deseret News

Seth L. Forster
VERNAL — A Uintah County man who faced multiple allegations of child sex abuse in three separate cases has accepted a plea deal from prosecutors that will require him to serve prison time.

Seth L. Forster entered Alford pleas last week in 8th District Court to two counts of attempted aggravated sexual abuse of a child, according to court records. Under an Alford plea, a defendant does not admit guilt but acknowledges there is sufficient evidence for a conviction if the case were to go to trial.

Courts treat an Alford plea the same as a guilty plea for purposes of sentencing.

Forster, 38, was initially charged in September 2014 with three counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, three counts of furnishing alcohol to a minor and two counts of lewdness involving a child.

Prosecutors filed two more cases against Forster in June 2015, charging him with aggravated sexual abuse of a child in one case, and rape of a child and aggravated sexual abuse of a child in the other.

Forster provided Dr Pepper mixed with whiskey to three girls under the age of 14 while they were in a hot tub at his house in 2014, according to charging documents. When one of the girls left, the two remaining girls said Forster got in the hot tub with them.

Detectives were told that Forster repeatedly touched one of the girls in an inappropriate manner. He also undressed in front of the girls, ran naked through the house and encouraged one of the girls to expose herself, the charges state.

Forster was arrested and interviewed. He acknowledged that he took of his clothes in front of girls while playing "Truth or Dare," and that he provided the girls with alcohol, detectives said.

In exchange for Forster's pleas to the attempted aggravated child sex abuse charges, prosecutors have asked the judge to dismiss all remaining charges in the three pending cases.

Forster agreed that he would not be eligible for probation when he is sentenced on Nov. 16. Instead, he will be sentenced to two concurrent terms of three years to life in prison.

Wow! That's quite a spread - 3 years to life! How does that work? Concurrent sentences should be illegal. Judges who use it should get two concurrent smacks upside the head.

 Man on Trial Accused of Sexually Abusing Girl from Age 7 to 12

ROCKVILLE, Connecticut — A Superior Court jury began deliberating the fate of a Vernon man accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting a girl over several years.

Daniel Wine, 47, faces 16 counts related to the abuse of the girl from the time she was 7 until she was 12. Wine faces trial in two more cases of alleged sexual abuse of young girls. The victims in those cases were friends of Wine's daughter and the assaults allegedly occurred during sleepovers.

During closing arguments Tuesday, prosecutor Elizabeth Leaming led jurors through the 16 charges against Wine, including five counts of first-degree sexual assault, and described the alleged conduct that correlates to each charge.

She urged jurors to consider the victim's description of the abuse and the testimony of seven other witnesses who provided corroboration. The girl took several years to disclose the abuse, which Leaming said is not unusual, because she was afraid doing so would hurt Wine's wife and children.

She also asked jurors to examine letters Wine wrote to his now former wife from prison. The letters show Wine urging his wife, Jessica Wine, not to talk to police or state Department of Children and Families investigators. "You went along with this and were a big part of this too," he wrote in one letter.

Daniel Wine
Jessica Wine, 28, is serving a five-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to charges that she helped Wine abuse one of the girls.

Wine, when he took the stand Friday, said that what he wrote in the letters referred to a period of time he sold marijuana, not to sexual abuse of the victim. Yeah, right, 'cause that involves the Department of Children and Families!

Leaming asked the jury to carefully evaluate Wine's credibility and to apply common sense.

Defense attorney Robert McKay asked jurors to consider inconsistencies in stories about the time of alleged assaults. They undermine the accuser's credibility, he said.

He suggested to jurors that the accuser "fabricated" the allegations because she wanted to help Jessica Wine end her marriage with Daniel Wine. Jessica Wine had a boyfriend and wanted to keep her children, McKay argued.

That explanation made no sense, Leaming said, because in talking to the police, Jessica Wine incriminated herself, was arrested and ultimately convicted and sentenced to prison for five years.

Jurors have just delivered the verdict a couple hours ago

Daniel Wine, 47, was convicted of all 16 counts he faced, including five counts of first-degree sexual assault. He faces at least 10 years in prison and a maximum of 320 years at his sentencing, scheduled for Jan. 8.
