Texas man convicted of child sex abuse
A Bedias man was sentenced Friday to life without parole after he was found guilty Thursday of continuous sexual assault of a young child.
During the punishment phase of the trial, the 2003 victim and her mother testified that Singleton and the crime continued to haunt them, and how 15 years later the victim still looks over her shoulder.
"Ladies and gentlemen, you hold the power to decide how long this defendant is locked away ... how long these victims don't have to look over their shoulders in fear," Assistant District Attorney Jo Ann Linzer told the jury.
A charge of continuous sexual assault of a young child carries a range of punishment of not less than 25 years and not more than 99 years or life in prison. Singleton is not eligible for parole.
"I applaud the bravery and courage of the two victims," said Grimes County District Attorney Andria Bender. "I also commend the efforts of the Grimes County Sheriff's Office and of my staff for bringing justice to these young ladies."

What idiots were on the parole board that allowed that to happen? 12 years for abduction, rape and murder of 2 women. Are women that cheap in Texas?
Liberty County Assistant District Attorney Tami Pierce, who prosecuted Greenwood for the child sex abuse case in the 75th State District Court before the Honorable Judge Mark Morefield, believes Greenwood may have other victims.

CHESAPEAKE, Va. – Charles McClung will spend eight years in prison and 20 years on probation, after being sentenced on Friday for possessing hundreds of thousands of images of child sexual abuse.
According to court documents, the 64-year-old was a part of an online bulletin board that traded child porn, which was hosted on the dark net, and had over 1,500 members associated with it.
After agents with Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) started looking into the board in September 2015, McClung was identified as being a person who downloaded content from the board in December 2015.
Law enforcement agents would later execute a federal search warrant of McClung’s residence, finding the images that he would later be sentenced on.
Launched in 2006, this case is part of the Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative started by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse.

An Atlantic City man has been indicted on several charges after sexually assaulting a child, Atlantic County Prosecutor Damon G. Tyner announced.
This is not the first time Blanco has been indicted for alleged child sexual abuse.
In December, he was indicted on four counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault, four counts of second-degree endangering the welfare of a child, and one count of third-degree endangering for alleged misconduct with another child, according to previous reports.
Blanco has been in the Atlantic County jail since September, when he was originally charged with allegedly abusing the first victim. Judge Patricia Wild declined his motion to be released until trial.
The charges and indictments against Blanco come after a joint investigation among the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office Special Victims Unit and detectives from the Pleasantville and Atlantic City police departments.

A Corvallis 18-year-old pleaded guilty Friday in Benton County Circuit Court to sex crimes involving a minor, court records show.
Braden Michael Kingsley-Current entered guilty pleas to encouraging child sexual abuse in the second degree and attempted sodomy in the first degree. A sentencing hearing in the case has been set for July 3. Kingsley-Current’s defense attorney, Jennifer Nash, said a plea agreement with state prosecutors calls for her client to be sentenced to supervised probation.
Kingsley-Current was 15 years old when prosecutors charged him as an adult in July 2015. Kingsley-Current was arrested and booked into the Oak Creek Youth Correctional Facility, where he remained for eight days before being granted release on house arrest. Nash said Kingsley-Current has been under 24-hour supervision since his release from the correctional facility.
An indictment filed in the case asserts the crimes occurred in 2015 and involved an 11-year-old victim.
Nash said Kingsley-Current last year was found to be unable to aid and assist in his defense following a psychological evaluation, which put the case on hold. After a period of treatment, Kingsley-Current was found able to assist in his defense and the case proceeded.
