(WBIR - KNOXVILLE) A Knoxville man faces twenty charges related to the sexual abuse of a child.
After a joint investigation by the Knox County Sheriff’s Office Family Crisis Unit and the Knoxville Police Department Special Crimes Unit, James Timothy Childress, 35, was charged with seven counts of rape of a child, one count of aggravated rape of a child, two counts of incest, and ten counts of aggravated sexual battery.

SANTA FE (KRQE) The New Mexico Supreme Court supported the Office of the Attorney General’s decision to reinstate the conviction of a New Mexico man charged in a sex abuse case involving his stepdaughters.
Danny Surratt was convicted for sexual penetration of a child under age thirteen.
Surratt is a retired law enforcement officer in Lea County. He was investigated and charged back in August 2010.
The Attorney General Hector Balderas spoke about the case.
“The Office of the Attorney General’s number one priority is protecting New Mexico’s children and families,” said Balderas. “Today’s Supreme Court opinion reinstates the conviction of a man who preyed on children, which is justice served. It also affirms the proper use of special prosecutors in cases where there is a conflict of interest.”
A jury Wednesday found a Santa Paula man guilty of two felony counts of unlawful acts with a child under 10 years old, prosecutors said.
After a weeklong trial and nearly two days of deliberation, the jury also found Anastacio Ramirez, 44, guilty of one felony count of continuous sexual abuse.
Prosecutor Jennie Thrift said Ramirez had sexual intercourse with the victim, and that the abuse lasted from when the girl was 11 to 13 years old.
Ramirez faces a maximum prison sentence of 62-years to life in prison when he is sentenced Jan. 8.

|Odd! Most perverts are uglier |
than this guy
A forensic interview was conducted later that day at the Children’s Justice Center, where the 7-year-old victim said Nay touched her privates, reports state. The 6-year-old victim told the interviewing officers that Nay had pulled his pants down in front of both of the victims.
Nay told the 6-year-old victim to lie on top of him, reports state.
A protective order has been served on Nay to have no contact with the alleged victims in the case, the report states.
Ryan McBride with the Utah County Attorney’s Office said the reason there was a delay between the initial report and the arrest is likely a result of follow-up investigation.
Nay was booked Wednesday into the Utah County Jail on suspicion of two first-degree felony charges of aggravated sexual abuse of a child.
PARKMAN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- A Parkman man has been arrested on charges he lured children with candy and gum and then asked them to expose themselves to him, according to Piscataquis County District Attorney Chris Almy.
Officials charged 69-year-old David Russell with seven counts of visual sexual aggression. Russell is the husband of Pamela Russell, listed owner of the Just Us Daycare in Parkman.
According to a DHHS press statement, Pamela Russell was certified by the Department of Health and Human Services in 1997 as a Family Child Care provider, approved to care for a maximum of 12 children, at the location of 172 Dairy Lane in Parkman.
NEWS CENTER spoke with Piscataquis District Attorney Christopher Almy on Thursday. He said "We became aware of it recently when parents of some of the kids complained to both state police and the Sheriff's office that the children at the daycare center had been enticed in to exposing their privates to the owners husband."
Piscataquis District Attorney Almy also said "The only thing that is alleged here is he enticed these children with gum or candy to expose their privates to him while they were in a pickup truck that he has on the property of the Day Care Center".
Officials said after obtaining sufficient evidence to support findings which would support Child Care Licensing initiating formal negative licensing action against Russell, she voluntarily surrendered her certificate on October 20.
Officials say the Department investigated one unfounded complaint back in 1999.
Almy said David Russell was taken to the Piscataquis County Jail and subsequently released on $2,500 cash bail.

A jury found Ladislado Miranda, 58, guilty of three counts of first-degree sexual abuse and first-degree unlawful sexual penetration last week. Two counts of first-degree criminal mistreatment were dismissed.
Miranda was accused of inappropriately touching a girl under the age of 14 multiple times between June 2008 and Oct. 2014, according to an indictment issued in May.
A jury convicted Miranda of first-degree sexual abuse, first-degree sodomy and first-degree attempted rape in 1992. The victim was of a similar age as the girl in the 2015 case, according to court records.
In 1977, Miranda was convicted of first-degree sexual abuse after pleading guilty. He was arrested on a rape charge, court records show. He was sentenced to three years in prison to be served in the Oregon Department of Corrections, but it was an indeterminate sentence so he might not have served that full period, said Deputy District Attorney Katie Suver.
Miranda is scheduled to be sentenced at 4 p.m. Jan. 11, 2016 before Judge Claudia Burton at the Marion County Circuit Courthouse.
