Male Babysitter Sentenced To 100 Years For
Raping Two Children To Music
By Cliff Renfrew
Evil babysitter Milton Narvaez has been caged for 100 years.
The 36-year-old was jailed for raping two children including one inside a CHURCH and filming the assaults before setting them to music.
The Manhattan native was sentenced on Friday to 98 criminal counts.
He assaulted a girl inside Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church in Manhattan and also targeted a boy he was paid to babysit from when he was aged six to 12.
He was convicted in November last year on 98 criminal counts including predatory sexual assault against a child, sexual abuse and dozens of counts of promoting and possessing child pornography.
Narvaez was employed as a babysitter by several Manhattan families, and also worked as a custodian at the Eastern Diocese of the Armenian Church in Midtown.
What is wrong with your heads? Do not use male babysitters, period!
His conviction at trial was announced in a written statement released by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, released on November 28, 2017.
“There are few acts more horrific than the long-term sexual abuse of a child,’ Vance said.
“As a babysitter and custodian with access to children, Milton Narvaez abused his position to rape two children, before further exploiting them by recording video of the acts.
“The children of this City will be safer with Milton Narvaez out of our homes and churches.”
California bus driver rape case highlights vulnerability of special needs students
Cristian Ponce, The Californian
The case of a Salinas bus driver accused of raping special needs children highlights the vulnerability of special needs students.
On Feb. 22, Salinas police responded to a call of a man harassing a woman, and that call launched an investigation into Bill Harvey, 58, who has been a bus driver for special needs children in the Salinas Union High School District for years.
The alleged victims are both physically and developmentally disabled, authorities have said. According to Salinas police, the victims said they were touched inappropriately several times and forced to commit sexual acts against their will.
Lori Luzader, executive director for Special Kids Crusade, an organization that offers support programs for children with special needs, said incidents like these incite well-founded fears for parents who have children with disabilities.
An estimated 10,000 individuals under the age of 22 have disabilities in Monterey County, said Luzader.
“Children with a disability are two to four times likely to be a victim of some kind of abuse, be it physical abuse, emotional abuse, sexual abuse,” she said. “It stems from a couple of different reasons. One of them is that the general public views people with disabilities as being less valuable to society, which is a horrible, horrible thing, but can be a perception.”
Luzader said there is also a perception that children with disabilities are less likely to process what is happening when they are being abused and less likely to effectively communicate about the abuse, which is why cases are underreported. These perceptions are reinforced by a number of studies, said Luzader.
"If they are unable to speak, then they have no way to communicate," said Luzader.
Traditional symptoms of abuse for a child without a disability, such as a child becoming withdrawn or depressed, may be dismissed in a child with a disability, she said. Families may think it's merely a child having a bad day, Luzader explained.
“I think it’s paramount for all of us, for professionals, for parents, for the community at large to just be sensitive to who has the child been around, who are they with consistently and to not let anyone off the hook,” she said.
Dan Burns, superintendent of the Salinas Union High School District said the district immediately reached out to the families whose children may have ridden the bus driven by Harvey.
Burns said the district has also set up meetings for support and services for those who may have been affected by the incident. Those interested also have the opportunity to connect with Salinas police detectives as well, said Burns.
Four or five percent of students in the district have a disability, said Burns, and added that it is a smaller number of those students who ride the bus. According to 2016-2017 EdData numbers, the district had more than 15,000 students enrolled, which would mean around 600 to 750 students in the district have a disability.
Abuse can continue for years and Luzader said simply listening to these children is the first step in helping to protect them.
“When these children do claim abuse, they are not believed and that is the biggest issue, it’s discounted,” said Luzader. “I think we can do everything in our power to try and prevent them from being in situations where abuse may occur, but I think the other side is we really need to take any of those claims seriously.”
Luzader said that like with any child, a student with a disability may be embarrassed to talk about abuse. A child may find it difficult to talk about an adult they are supposed to trust, said Luzader.
As a society, people must do their best to make sure potential predators don't have unsupervised access to children, said Luzader.
Burns said it's too early for the district to change its protocols for bus drivers. Any such changes will need to wait until the investigation is complete and more of the facts are know, he said.
Sgt. Christopher Lane of the Salinas Police Department said the investigation into Harvey's actions are still under review and that no other alleged victims have come forward.
Anyone with information that may assist in this investigation is asked to contact the Salinas Police Investigations Bureau at 831-758-7226 or Detective Gabriela Garibay at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Former basketball coach in Md. pleads guilty
to child pornography charges
By: Tim Whelan Jr., USA TODAY
A former substitute teacher and basketball coach in Maryland pleaded guilty Friday to child pornography and sex abuse charges.
Christopher Speights, 35, has been charged with child sex abuse and possession (6th story on link) and distribution of child pornography and faces between 30 and 40 years in prison.
Speights coached basketball at Bradbury Heights Elementary School in Capitol Heights, Md., for about nine years, as well as a traveling basketball team, according to Washington, D.C.’s WTOP.
According to prosecutors, the case involves as many as 59 minors. Speights is accused of not only physically abusing children but also coercing them to take images for his use of other minors performing explicit acts, prosecutors said per the Washington Post.
Authorities detailed how Speights secretly recorded boys on a road trip and posed as a teenage girl on social media to solicit and blackmail children for additional explicit images.
“Mr. Speights did what most predators do,” said Prince George’s County State’s Attorney Angela D. Alsobrooks, per the Post. Through substitute teaching, coaching and volunteering, “he availed himself at every opportunity . . . to be around children.”
According to the Post, Speights worked as a substitute teacher at Bradbury Heights Elementary School and John Eager Howard Elementary School for 13 years. He coached sports at Bradbury Heights and for the South County Steelers through the South County Sports Academy in 2015 and 2016.
“When Speights took these kids to different field trips and different events, while they were sleeping or in other compromised positions, he did photograph their genitalia and photographed them while they were showering,” Assistant Attorney General Kelly A. Burrell said, per the Post.
Speights pleaded guilty Friday to child sex abuse and three child pornography charges including distribution, possession and photographing. The Post reports that the plea in state court comes after Speights pleaded guilty Tuesday to one count of production of child pornography and one count of attempted production of child pornography in U.S. district court in Maryland.
Prosecutors say Speights was arrested in 2017 after Maryland State Police received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children about “sexually exploitative images” involving minors on his Dropbox account.
Speights is expected to be sentenced in federal court in July.
Ex-probation officer gets 35 years in prison
for raping 5 & 7 y/os
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — A former Clackamas County probation officer has been sentenced to just over 35 years in prison for repeatedly raping two girls beginning when they were 5 and 7.
The Oregonian/OregonLive reports Clackamas County Circuit Judge Michael Wetzel on Friday sentenced Gordon Mead Jr. for rape, sexual abuse and sodomy of the two girls, which occurred separately between 2004 and 2012.
A county jury found the 69-year-old Mead guilty of the charges on March 2.
Court documents show one of the girls told her parents about the abuse in November 2015 when she was 12 and police were notified.
She also directed investigators to the older victim, who had told her that Mead had abused her as well.
State records show Mead worked for the Clackamas County parole and probation office from 1983 until he resigned in May 2001.
