Bar Nunn Man Denies Four Child Sex Abuse Charges
By Nick Learned, Townsquare Media

A man could find himself behind bars for 200 years if convicted of using his authority to sexually abuse a teenage girl.

Joseph Crandall, 35, is charged with four counts of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor. Each charge carries a maximum sentence of 50 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Court documents say the victim in February told her counselor that Crandall had been having sex with her.

The victim told an interviewer that Crandall “did a horrible thing” to her. Charges against Crandall specifically reference two instances of oral sex and two instances of sexual intercourse.

All the alleged crimes happened in the victim’s bedroom, according to an affidavit.

When Crandall first sexually abused her in June, the victim reported, he began by showing the victim pornographic videos on his cell phone.

Crandall then allegedly followed the victim upstairs to her bedroom, told her to take her clothes off and had sex with her, despite the victim saying “no” and “it hurt,” court documents say.

After the second time Crandall allegedly abused the victim, court documents say, he told the victim that if she told anyone he would call the cops and blame her for everything.

Crandall allegedly had sex with the victim, she reportedly felt like she was going to pass out or throw up.

Natrona County Sheriff’s Deputies on February 22 executed a search warrant at the victim’s home and reportedly found biological evidence in several areas of the victim’s bedroom.

Crandall, in an interview with an investigator, said he could not have abused the victim because they were never alone together. However, Crandall later admitted there were times when he was alone with the victim, according to the affidavit.

He allegedly said the victim was lying about the incident. Crandall was arrested that same day.

Crandall pleaded not guilty to all four charges Monday during his arraignment before Judge Catherine Wilking in Natrona County District Court. He remains free on bond.

Draper man arrested in child sex abuse case
By Pat Reavy@DNewsCrimeTeam

DRAPER, Utah — A Draper man arrested over the weekend and accused of kidnapping and sexually abusing a 4-year-old girl has been investigated in two other cases involving young children, police say.

In at least two of the three cases, John Richard Seymour, 67, is accused of offering candy or treats to young girls, a Salt Lake County Jail report states.

On Saturday, a woman could not find her 4-year-old daughter for about 10 minutes. The woman's daughter would often take Seymour's mail to him, and he would reward her with candy, the report states.

When the woman went to the Seymour's apartment to look for her daughter, he told her to wait at the door, according to police.

"As time passed with no answer at the door, she became even more impatient and concerned and forced her way into the apartment," officers wrote.

Inside, the woman said she found her partially-dressed daughter holding a piece of candy. Seymour said, "She took off her pants and I don't know why," according to the report.

After the mother reported the incident to police, the Utah Division of Child and Family Services said it was aware of another incident involving Seymour and a young girl in West Jordan, according to the report. Details of that case were not specified.

Upon further investigation, Draper police found a case in which it was reported that Seymour was seen at a park giving brownies to a 4-year-old girl who was alone, the report states. A bystander found the activity to be suspicious and called police. That case was later closed and it was determined that no crime had been committed.

Seymour was booked into jail Saturday for investigation of child kidnapping and sexual abuse of a child.

Child-sex abuse trial begins for Frederick woman
Don Aines 

The trial of a woman indicted two years ago on sexual abuse charges involving two girls began Monday in Washington County Circuit Court.

Reina Portillo, 48, of Frederick was indicted by a county grand jury in July 2015 on 10 charges, including two counts of sex abuse of a minor and one count of sex abuse of a minor as a continuing course of conduct.

However, prior to the beginning of Portillo's jury trial, Assistant State's Attorney Sarah Mollett-Gaumer told Judge Daniel P. Dwyer that the state would not be prosecuting her on six of the charges involving third- and fourth-degree sex offenses.

The sex abuse of a minor charges remained, as did one count of third-degree sex offense, according to court records.

One victim testified Monday that Portillo touched her inappropriately on several occasions over a period of about two years prior to the indictment.

The girl testified that the last time Portillo had engaged in the conduct was several months before it was reported to police in late April 2015.

Senior Trooper James Bowers of the Maryland State Police testified earlier that the victims were questioned at the Child Advocacy Center in Hagerstown in April and May, where the interviews were recorded.

Bowers said he interviewed Portillo on May 7, 2015, at the state police barrack, but it was not recorded.

Questioned by defense attorney Alexander Cordier, Bowers testified that recording equipment for interviews is not always available at the barrack.

Julie Combs, who acted as a contract interpreter at the police interview, testified that she did not retain notes from the interview as a matter of privacy protection.

Combs said that she did not have "a verbatim recollection" of what was said during the interview.

Initially jailed on the charges, Portillo was released from the Washington County Detention Center in September 2015, according to online court records.

According to ICAC reports, Rosier allegedly asked to have sex with the 16-year-old but eventually arranged to have the girl broker a sexual encounter with a 13-year-old girl which included requests of prices for specific sexual acts.

Police investigators arrested Rosier while he was attempting to meet the girl in a local hotel lobby, according to an ICAC news release.

“The district is aware of the recent arrest of Dr. Paul Rosier by the Richland Police Department. Dr. Rosier served as the superintendent of Kennewick School District from 1994 to 2006. After retiring from the district, he worked as the Executive Director of the Washington Association of School Administrators (WASA) until 2014. Prior to working in Kennewick, he worked as a superintendent in the Mesa County Valley School District 51 in Grand Junction, Colorado.”
