Ten CSA Stories Include a Couple, a Prison Guard, and a Beer Company on Today's USA PnP List
Oklahoma couple arrested for alleged
child sexual abuseby Ashley Ellis
BROKEN ARROW, Okla. (KTUL) — Wagoner County Sheriff's Office announced the arrests of a Broken Arrow couple on complaints related to the sexual assault of a minor.
William Woolley, 59, and Lisa Woolley, 56, were booked into the Wagoner County jail after the investigation into the death of their 13-month-old grandson uncovered evidence another child had allegedly been sexually assaulted.
"We have no more sacred duty than to protect innocent children," said Sheriff Elliott. "We are parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles, so cases like this have a profound impact on us as human beings; but as investigators, we're committed to uncovering the truth - no matter where it is, or how disturbing it may be."
Deputies responded to a call of an unresponsive baby on March 30. The state medical examiner discovered physical injuries and sexual assault.
"You just never know what a thorough investigation will uncover," Elliott said. "We went in with open minds and eyes wide open, and in trying to determine how we lost one innocent child, we learned we needed to protect another."
These two cases are still under investigation.
Bill and Lisa Woolley are being held at the Wagoner County Jail on charges of child sexual abuse and enabling child sexual abuse. Both are being held on $500,000 bonds.
Ex-Texas prison guard re-indicted on child sex crimes
by Jamie Burch
ABILENE, Texas — A former Abilene prison guard was re-indicted Thursday on child sex crimes charges.
A Taylor County grand jury indicted Jerred Matthew Batten, 30, for continuous sexual abuse of a child.
According to the indictment, Batten had sex with a girl under the age of six in July 2013 and also rubbed his foot on her genitals.
Batten was arrested in September 2016 for second-degree felony sexual assault of a child and indecency with a child. TDCJ then suspended Batten from his job at the Middleton Unit pending the outcome of the case.
Batten was indicted in February 2017 on those charges.
The indecency charge was later upgraded to a second-degree felony because the victim was under the age of six and he was re-indicted in March.
Batten was arrested on the new charges on April 4, 2017. TDCJ told KTXS he resigned six days later.
It's unclear why he was re-indicted on the new charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child.
But I think we can guess, right? The word 'continuous' is a big clue!
Batten is currently free on bond after posting $20,000 bail.
Another Abilene man indicted on charge of
having sex with 13-year-old girl
Timothy Chipp, Abilene Reporter-News
A Taylor County grand jury on Thursday indicted an Abilene man suspected of sexually assaulting a child this past summer.
Carlon Leigh Hale, 19, was indicted on one count of aggravated sexual assault of a child relating to an incident Aug. 1.
According to court documents, a 13-year-old girl told police Hale had sexual intercourse with her.
When questioned by police, Hale said the two met in October or November and they had sex. He said he believed the girl to be 14 or 15 years old.
Hale was arrested in January and was released in a court-supervised release program on March 20, according to Taylor County Jail records.
Michigan Child Sex Abuser who avoided
sex offender registry, jailed
By: 24 Hour News 8 web staff
IONIA, Mich. (WOOD) — A man accused of sexually assaulting a child who avoided registering as a sex offender under a plea deal is in trouble with the law again.
Employees at the Ionia County jail confirmed Dean Stauffer was arrested Wednesday and formally charged Thursday for violating his probation by allegedly using methamphetamine.
Stauffer was initially charged in 2016 with three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct which, if convicted, would have required him to register as a sex offender -- and aggravated indecent exposure. However, he eventually reached a plea deal to admit to lesser charges of second-degree child abuse and indecent exposure.
The case involved a girl who was 5 years old when she told her grandmother and mother that Stauffer had abused her.
However, Ionia County Prosecutor Kyle Butler contradicted much of what the girl's mother said in her statement, claiming that the girl's sister made statements to police that suggested she didn't believe the abuse had happened. He also said there was no physical evidence: Stauffer's DNA wasn't found on the girl's underwear and medical staff didn't report any physical trauma to the girl.
One diagnosis made at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital did point to sexual abuse, but Butler said it was inadmissible in court.
Butler also revealed that Stauffer took two polygraph tests during the investigation. Michigan State Police initially said he passed the first test but later decided it was inconclusive. Stauffer went on to conclusively pass a second test.
In February, a judge decided to honor Stauffer’s plea deal, in which he pleaded guilty to lesser charges of second-degree child abuse and indecent exposure. The deal also called for a sentence of 12 months time-served and probation.
Dozens of bars boycott heralded Melvin Brewing over sexual-misconduct allegation, ‘bad-boy’ culture
In a reversal of fortune for a heralded brewery, Melvin Brewing has fallen into a #MeToo-style storm, with Seattle bars boycotting its products after a sexual-misconduct allegation in Bellingham, complaints of offensive content on its website and overall “bad-boy” culture.
BELLINGHAM — Posted high on the side of Melvin Brewing’s building here, a billboard gives a glimpse into the state of mind of this embattled brewery and bar: “We are hazy after this weekend but our beer is not.”
Melvin Brewing, one of the most heralded breweries to debut in Washington state in recent years, has had a turbulent few weeks.
Its corporate headquarters in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, apologized for some offensive content on its website including the joke, “Show us on the doll where Melvin Brewing touched you,” making light of a tool therapists use to address child sexual assault.
Its cook and servers scrubbed down the pub’s facade one Saturday after a vandal spray-painted, “go back 2 Wyoming,” “(expletive) u Melvin” and other epithets.
Its owner Jeremy Tofte flew into town to address the alleged sexual misconduct of his star brewer.
Tofte reprimanded the brewer and added a “comprehensive” sexual-harassment policy for his employees. “The hurt we caused, there is no excuse for that. For that we have apologized immensely,” he said.
In a signal of the ever-growing reach of the #MeToo movement, the repercussions against Melvin Brewing have been swift. In recent weeks, the Bellingham community has turned to social media to call on residents and businesses to boycott the company. Many bars and bottleshops across Western Washington have obliged, including about two dozen bars in Seattle.
In South Lake Union, TeKu Tavern has removed Melvin’s six-packs from the cooler and left a note in its place, explaining it does not “support a company that makes light of sexual misconduct.”
In Belltown, Chris Elford, a respected figure in the local beer community, has stopped carrying Melvin beers at his acclaimed bar No Anchor, calling the culture at Melvin “toxic” and added that its pedophile “doll” joke was “an insane level of hubris.”
Yes! Way to go you guys!
NY man twice convicted of child sex crimes
By BOB BENNETT Press-Republican
PLATTSBURGH — A convicted sex offender is serving time at Auburn Correctional Facility.
Anthony Serano, 34, of Schuyler Falls was sentenced to 10 years in prison and another decade of post-release supervision after pleading guilty to the use of a child under 17 years old in a sexual performance, sexually motivated.
He appeared in Clinton County Court before Judge Timothy Lawliss, who also ordered him to pay a $300 surcharge.
Lawliss issued an 18-year stay-away order of protection for the victim.
Serano was arrested in 2016 after State Police found him with sexually explicit images of a 14-year-old he knew.
He was charged Dec. 29 with six counts of promoting a sexual performance by a child, a felony, State Police Troop B Public Information Officer Tropper Jennifer Fleishman said.
Serano's earliest release date, according to the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, is July 17, 2025; his maximum stay would be Dec. 23, 2016. (!!????)
In 2015, when Serano was living in Saranac, he pleaded guilty in Clinton County Court to second-degree sexual abuse, a misdemeanor.
Lawliss sentenced him to one year in jail and payment of fines and surcharges.
The judge ordered him to register as a sex offender and issued an order of protection for the victim in that case.
Alabama man to serve 10 years for child sex abuse
An Athens man will serve 10 years in prison and register as a convicted sex offender after pleading guilty Monday to two counts of sexual abuse of a child under age 12, records show.
Rex Allen Locke, 50, was initially arrested in October 2016 (4th story on link) when the first victim's mother reported he abuse to the Limestone County Sheriff's Office. The victim, then 5, told investigators the abuse happened several times between Sept. 1 and Oct. 12, 2016.
After the arrest, a second victim, then 8, came forward.
Initial investigations showed both victims were abused at Locke's residence at 16050 American Way.
After pleading guilty to both counts Monday, Locke was sentenced to two 10-year sentences, to be served concurrently. He was also ordered to register with the state as a convicted sex offender, which will require him to report his whereabouts and worksite to authorities for the rest of his life.
Concurrent sentences means he will be back out on the streets while his victims are still children. Someone should smack the judge upside the head!
Alabama man charged with sex with 10 y/o
and doing drugs off her body
Posted By: Patrick Ary
A Huntsville man performed sex acts on a 10-year-old girl and did drugs off of her body while performing sex acts, police said Thursday.
Darnell Eugene Lawson, 35, was arrested around 7 p.m. Wednesday. He was charged with sexual abuse of a child under 12, first-degree sodomy, three counts of pornography production with a minor and three counts of child pornography possession.
Lawson is accused of abusing a 10-year-old girl at her home. The girl's mother came home and found her daughter partially nude with Lawson in the home, Huntsville Police Deparment spokesman Lt. Michael Johnson said.
The girl told her mother that Lawson committed sex acts with her and did drugs on her during a sex act, the spokesman said. Lawson also took photos of the acts on his phone, according to police.
Lawson left the home after the mother threatened to call police, Johnson said, but he left his phone behind. He said investigators found images on the phone to corroborate the girl's story.
Lawson also had three assault charges listed in his jail booking that police said stemmed from a separate case.
According to Madison County jail records, bond had not been set on the sex charges as of Thursday morning.
Kansas man convicted in case alleging child
sexual abuse spanning more than 6 years
By Sara Shepherd
A Lawrence man who was charged last year with 12 felony counts of rape and other sex crimes against a girl over the course of six years has been convicted, via a plea deal, of some of those charges.
On Thursday in Douglas County District Court, Andrew L. Tribble, 40, pleaded no contest to and was convicted of two counts of rape and one count of aggravated criminal sodomy, according to Cheryl Wright Kunard, assistant to the district attorney.
Tribble’s plea came days before his jury trial in the case was scheduled to begin, on Monday morning. Now he will instead proceed to sentencing, scheduled for May 24.
Tribble has been jailed on $300,000 bond since he was arrested in August 2017.
According to initial charges filed August 10, 2017, Tribble allegedly raped and otherwise molested a girl beginning when she was 10. The crimes occurred over the course of about six and a half years, up until the date he was arrested, the charges alleged.
Judge Sally Pokorny previously denied a Journal-World request for an affidavit prepared by police in support of Tribble’s arrest, which would shed light on the circumstances of the case. In denying public release of that document, Pokorny said the “detailed” and “sordid” allegations would cause distress and humiliation to the average victim, as well as disclose a victim’s identity.
Before his arrest, Tribble had coached youth sports in Lawrence. He was involved with teams including softball and Douglas County Amateur Baseball Association teams. None were Lawrence Parks and Recreation Department Youth Sports Division teams, which does not pay coaches but does vet them, city officials have said.

By Jessica Prokop, Columbian Courts Reporter
A Vancouver, Washington man who allegedly sexually abused a 5-year-old girl, whom he knows, and produced child pornography appeared Thursday in Clark County Superior Court.
Bryen K. Baldwin, 31, faces allegations of first-degree possessing depictions of a minor engaged in sexually explicit conduct, first-degree rape of a child and sexual exploitation of a minor.
The alleged abuse was reported by the girl’s mother April 9, according to an affidavit of probable cause.
Investigators with the Vancouver Police Department’s Digital Evidence Cybercrime Unit later served a search warrant at Baldwin’s Vancouver residence and seized his cellphone, which was used to take photos of the abuse. Detectives found 13 images of child pornography associated with the abuse, the affidavit states.
During his hearing, Judge John Fairgrieve set Baldwin’s bail at $150,000. He will be arraigned May 3, court records show.
