The baby boy was rushed to hospital when he developed herpes following the controversial ancient circumcision ritual. A rash is said to have spread across the child’s genitals, buttocks, inner thighs and ankle two weeks after the procedure. An estimated 3,000 babies are circumcised each year using the method in New York City. NYC is home to the largest Jewish population outside Israel. There have been six cases of herpes among children who have had the ritual known as metzitzah b’peh performed on them since February 2015. Of the six previously undisclosed cases, two occurred last year and three in 2015. Herpes, a highly contagious viral disease which can cause blisters and ulcers. Herpes is more severe in newborn babies as their immune systems are not fully developed. Since 2000, there have been 24 cases of infant herpes linked to circumcision, leading to two deaths and two cases of brain damage.

Oakland, CA (WCJB) ~ United States -- A sex scandal involving Oakland police officers and a then underage girl has all the makings of a TV thriller. The saga is full of twists and turns. The scandal erupted months after Officer Brendan O'Brien committed suicide. O'Brien left a note spilling the details, including names. Three Oakland officers were placed on paid leave. A source said O'Brien in his suicide note confessed to exchanging messages with a young woman who goes by the name Celeste Guap. However, the note says he did not have sexual contact with her. The same sources said she has met multiple officers. In the note, O'Brien named the officers, including one sergeant, involved in the alleged sexual misconduct with Guap. Guap is the daughter of a Oakland police dispatcher. The police investigation will look at whether Guap was under age during some of the encounters with officers. (Click here for video)

New Orleans, LA (WCJB) ~ United States -- On September 4, 2005, New Orleans police received a call from an officer at Danziger Bridge reporting gunfire. Several NOPD officers—including Sgt. Kenneth Bowen, Sgt. Robert Gisevius, Officer Anthony Villavaso, and Officer Robert Faulcon—arrived at the scene in a Budget rental truck. They proceeded to open fire with assault rifles and a shotgun on an unarmed family, the Bartholomews, who had been walking to a grocery store and were then sheltering behind a concrete barrier. 17-year-old James Brissette—a family friend—was killed, and four other people were wounded. The police shooters stated that while approaching the bridge, they had been fired on by civilians, and were forced to return fire. Homicide detective Arthur "Archie" Kaufman was made the lead investigator on the case. He was later found guilty of conspiring with the defendants to conceal evidence in order to make the shootings appear justified, including fabricating information for his official reports on the case. NOPD lieutenant Michael Lohman also encouraged the officers to "provide false stories about what had precipitated the shooting" and plant a firearm near the scene. (Click here for video)

Chicago, IL -- Surveillance video (Click here for video) in connection with a Chicago police officer's fatally shooting 17-year-old Cedrick Chatman was released today by attorneys for the teen's family. A federal judge ordered the release of footage showing the 2013 shooting today after the city withdrew its objection to its being made public. Chicago police officer Kevin Fry fatally shot Chatman Jan. 7, 2013, in broad daylight during a foot chase, according to court records. Chatman’s family had fought for the video to be released as part of a wrongful death lawsuit they filed over the shooting against the city, Fry and Chicago police officer Lou Toth, who pursued Chatman along with Fry during the foot chase. Family members have argued the video will counter the city and police’s narrative that the 17-year-old was a danger to police. IPRA concluded the officers' actions were justified because they reasonably believed Chatman was armed at the time.

Miami, FL ~ USA -- A Florida jury began weighing on Tuesday whether a man who killed his wife and posted a photo of her blood-spattered, lifeless body on Facebook committed first-degree murder. Attorneys for Derek Medina, 33, argued that he was acting in self-defense when he fired eight shots at Jennifer Alfonso, 27, in the kitchen of their Miami-area residence. The August 2013 shooting followed a fight in which she had threatened to leave, prosecutors said during closing statements. They argued that Medina retrieved a .380-caliber pistol from his bedroom and pulled the trigger repeatedly in a premeditated act of murder. "Every single shot hit her because he was aiming and he wanted her dead," said Assistant State Attorney Leah Klein in Miami-Dade County circuit court. Medina wrote on Facebook shortly before turning himself in: "I'm going to prison or death sentence for killing my wife. My wife was punching me, and I am not going to stand any more with the abuse so I did what I did," he added in the post. (Click here for video)

CARBONDALE, Colo. – A retired sociology professor from Cornell University has been arrested in Colorado on charges of incest and sexual assault on a child. Paul Eugene Breer, 81 (pictured above, center) who lives near Carbondale, was taken into custody Monday by Chaffee County and Eagle County sheriff’s deputies, officials said. He was being held on $100,000 bond in the Eagle County jail. Details of the alleged crime were not released. “Deputies seized several computers and other electronic devices from the house after the arrest,” the Chaffee County Sheriff’s Office said in a statement. “They will be sent to an independent agency for forensic analysis.” “Authorities have reason to suspect that other persons have been victimized by Breer and are actively attempting to identify them,” the Sheriff’s Office said.

According to his website, Breer is a retired Cornell University sociology professor who has worked as a researcher at Harvard School of Public Health and as a consultant for Dartmouth College Medical School. He has published several novels and non-fiction books, and has composed numerous musical works.

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- Prosecutors say an Irvine high school teacher has been charged with texting nude pictures of himself to a 15-year-old female student and arranging a sexual rendezvous with her. Orange County District Attorney spokeswoman Farrah Emami says 25-year-old Dominic Witter (pictured below, center) was charged Friday with two felonies and a misdemeanor for attempting inappropriate contact with the child.

Prosecutors say Witter was a teacher at Crean Lutheran High School when he sent the inappropriate texts. Witter is also accused of texting the girl April 5 to arrange to meet at a restaurant before taking her to his house to have sex. Orange County Sheriff's deputies met him at the restaurant and arrested him. He faces a maximum sentence of more than four years in prison and mandatory lifetime sex offender registration if convicted.

Leland High

Posted: 05/03/2012 12:41:34 PM PDT - Updated: 05/05/2012 10:03:23 PM PDT

San Jose, CA -- Joseph Jon Reghitto, 32 (pictured left) an assistant principal at San Jose's Leland High School has been arrested on a charge that he had unlawful sexual contact with a minor -- and in an unusual move, two top administrators at the campus have been placed on leave pending an investigation. Late Wednesday, Leland Principal Liz Chamberlin and one other assistant principal, whom Fuqua declined to name, also were placed on leave. Neither is suspected of criminal wrongdoing but both have been removed while the district investigates the alleged assault, Fuqua said. The district, she said, "wants to make sure everything is clear.

Police arrested Reghitto on Wednesday at the Leland campus in Almaden. He was booked into the Santa Clara County Main Jail, with bail set at $100,000. San Jose Police spokesman Jose Garcia said the case involves one incident in September. Although police classify it as a sexual assault, that covers a wide range of illegal actions. He would not specify the nature of the alleged sexual contact. As in many cases of alleged sexual assault, Garcia said, police are trying to determine if there are other victims and are seeking witnesses. Reghitto is now on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of the case, said Karen Fuqua, spokeswoman for the San Jose Unified School District.

The administration is reviewing the whole situation." After the arrest, the district alerted parents through email, Fuqua said, and convened a teacher meeting on Thursday morning. Retired administrator John Shannon, a former principal at Pioneer High School, is helping run Leland High. It is unclear how long Chamberlin and the other assistant principal will be off campus or whether their absence will affect graduation, which is scheduled for May 30.

Reghitto was in his second year as assistant principal of student activities. His duties included overseeing student activities such as rallies and clubs. He is also the adviser for the sophomore class. Previously, he was assistant principal at Hoover Middle School, where he also taught. He came to the district in 2004 as a teacher at Bret Harte Middle School.

The arrest is the second incident in less than two months to rock Leland. In March, nine students were disciplined for reportedly looking at stolen copies of first-semester final exams. One of the students allegedly used a master key to enter classrooms and signed on to computers to obtain the test; he was recommended for expulsion. The other eight students were suspended.

District Pimping!

Posted: April 5, 2012 9:57 AM PDT - Updated: April 14, 2012 01:35 PM PDT

MORENO VALLEY, CA (WCJB) — A Moreno Valley Unified School District board member was charged Thursday with 11 felonies, including pandering, pimping and rape by force. Mike Luis Rios, 42 (pictured left) was arrested when Moreno Valley police pulled over his vehicle near his home on Palm Shadows Drive. Rios is charged with six counts of pandering, three counts of pimping and two counts of rape by force or fear.

An investigation by the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office shows that Rios tried to get four women and two underage girls to work as prostitutes. He told at least one woman that he was a member of the Moreno Valley school board and asked her if she needed a job, according to police. Another woman answered an Internet advertisement for a job. Authorities said Rios offered the underage girls the use of his home and car if they would work as prostitutes for him. "There was at least one of the underage victims who actually was advertising her services online and he contacted her through that," said Riverside County official John Hall.

Rios also has a second pending criminal case, in which he has been charged with two counts of attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon, one count of witness intimidation and other weapons allegations. He pleaded not guilty to the charges in connection to the Feb. 13 shooting in front of his home. According to Sgt. Walter Mendez, Rios told investigators that he had an argument with two men at a nightclub that later followed him home, leading to another altercation. “During the confrontation, Mr. Rios alleged one of the male subjects, brandished a weapon, and fired at him,” Sgt. Mendez said. “The suspects fled the area in a compact vehicle.”

In a follow-up investigation, officers questioned the alleged assailants, whose story contradicted Rios’. Following a second interview with Rios, investigators found enough evidence to arrest him, according to Mendez. A felony settlement conference in that case is scheduled for April 29.

"We have enough on our plates concerning teacher cuts and things like that and money and other things in the district that needs to be fixed. So this is a total shock to me," said Moreno Valley School Board Vice President Cleveland Johnson.

In a statement released Thursday, the school board said it cannot ask Rios to step down because he is an elected official. However, if Rios is convicted of a felony, the board can have him removed. The statement also said the school board is seeking a restraining order against Rios and they also want an emergency policy change that would ban board members from participating in district functions if they are charged with a crime against a minor.

A recall effort is now under way to push him out of office, but either a trial or a recall will take time. The Moreno Valley Democratic Club is pursuing a recall against him. It's news that has parents like Bruce Rodgers calling for Rios to step down. "As of yesterday, last month it should have been done. That's too long to wait," said Rodgers.

Members of the Moreno Valley Unified School Board on Friday went to the Banning jail facility where trustee Mike Rios is being held and asked for his resignation from the board, but he refused. Board president Tracey Vackar said she and vice president Cleveland Johnson decided earlier this week that they would try to meet with Rios and present him with resolutions that the board passed at its Tuesday meeting, including one requesting his resignation. They arrived at the jail without an appointment, Vackar said. “He did meet with us,” she said. “He declined our offer to resign. He said he plans to be at the next board meeting.” Rios is being held in lieu of $250,000 bail.

Rios has said he is innocent and that unidentified people were making up claims to stop him from running for Moreno Valley City Council. He ran unsuccessfully for City Council in 2008. Rios is registered as a Democrat. He was elected to the school board in November 2010.

In this Aug. 5, 2011 photo released by the Nassau County Police Department in Garden City, N.Y., New York City English teacher Tara Driscoll is shown. Driscoll, 33. is accused of third-degree rape and criminal sexual act for allegedly having sex with a student who attends the high school where she works. GARDEN CITY, N.Y. (WCJB) - A New York City teacher was accused of having sex with an underage student who attends the Queens high school where she taught. Police say the 33-year-old English teacher had sex with the student at a motel in Long Island last March. They say the victim, who is younger than 17, remained quiet until his mother found out and contacted authorities. The prosecutor indicated they have photo and video evidence which suggests a pornographic video was being shot, reports local media.

Tara Driscoll reportedly surrendered Friday and pleaded not guilty to charges of third-degree rape and performing a criminal sexual act.

Polygamist leader Warren Jeffs has been convicted on child sexual assault charges.

Update at 5:57 p.m. ET: The jury deliberated for more than three hours and immediately began sentencing proceedings, AP says.

Prosecutors used DNA evidence to show Jeffs fathered a child with a 15-year-old girl and played an audio recording of what they said was him sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl. They also played audio recordings in which Jeffs was heard instructing young women on how to please him sexually.

Media sources say Jeffs stood stone-faced when the verdict was read.

Original post: Polygamist leader Warren Jeffs has been convicted on child sexual assault charges stemming from a 2008 raid at his Texas compound.

The 55-year-old head of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was charged with assaulting two underage girls he had taken as so-called spiritual wives. He faces up to life in prison.

Washington, D.C. (WCJB) -- More than 50 members of a child pornography ring who engaged in what authorities describe as "horrific" and "unspeakable" crimes have been arrested for sexually exploiting children from 12 years old to as young as infants. Top federal law enforcement officials say agents busted the global online pornography ring following an intense international investigation that began in 2009. The ring, based in the United States, reached across five continents and 14 countries. Seventy-two members of the online site called Dreamboard have been charged in the United States. Officials said 52 of them have been arrested in the U.S. and abroad. The identities of the remaining 20 are unknown at this time. An additional 10 individuals were arrested abroad on charges from other countries.

"In order to become part of the Dreamboard community, prospective members were required to upload pornography portraying children under 12 years of age or younger," said Attorney General Eric Holder at a Justice Department news conference. "Once given access, the participants had to continually upload images of child sexual abuse in order to maintain membership. The more content they provided, the more content they were allowed to access. Members who created and shared images and videos of themselves molesting children received elevated status and greater access," he said. What particularly horrified investigators were "super-hardcore" posts that involved adults having violent sexual intercourse with "very young kids" who were being subjected to both physical and sexual abuse.

Blue "DreamBoard!"

UPDATE: August 5, 2011 4:25 p.m. PDT

KINGSPORT, Tenn. -- Kingsport police officer Richard Chandler is a named party in the indictments handed down by the U.S. Department of Justice that busts an international child pornography ring named "Dreamboard." According to Assistant U.S. Attorney Gregory Bowman of the U.S. District Court in Greeneville, Tenn. Chandler is named in the indictment. Chandler went under the screen name "Almeda" in his activities on the child pornography website. "The Kingsport Police Department was instrumental in helping U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents identify Chandler, "Bowman says. Chandler is in the custody of U.S. Marshals.

UPDATE: August 3 12:01 p.m.

The Federal Government just announced it busted up the largest international criminal network ever organized to sexually exploit children. Attorney General Eric Holder and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the prosecution just moments ago. Defendants being charged were members of a private members-only online bulletin board entitled "Dreamboard." To be a member participants had to upload images of children being abused.

The U.S. Attorney's Office let media sources know about today's news conference in response to our request for information about former Kingsport police officer Richard Chandler. Chandler resigned from the Kingsport Police Department on July 22 following his arrest by federal authorities. Chandler's arrest is the subject of a sealed federal indictment in Shreveport, La. The connection between Chandler and today's announcement is still not clear.

A local police officer is not longer on the job today because of an investigation about which no one is talking. However, we know that it reaches from Lafayette, La. to Kingsport. Federal officials have been referring media sources to the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Western District of Louisiana. So far no official statement has been given from them today.

Richard Chandler, 30, of Church Hill, Tenn. had worked as a patrolman with the KPD for two years, and before that worked at the Hawkins County Sheriff's Department as a deputy. A Kingsport city official said that during Chandler's two-years as an officer he had a clean employee record. Documents at the Washington County Tennessee Jail confirm that Chandler was booked on Friday by the U.S. Marshals Service as a federal inmate and is still there today.

We've just learned that the Department of Homeland Security did confiscate a city computer used by Chandler as part of the investigation. Why? We don't know as of yet. Media sources spoke to an official with the F.B.I. and they told us that the Immigration Customs and Enforcement Office is also involved in the case.

Kingsport police officer Richard Chandler resigned from the police department and is in custody of the U.S. Marshals Office, according to Kingsport Police Department spokesman Tim Whaley. Whaley said he worked for two years as a patrolman there. Whaley said his office has been instructed not to comment about Chandler because of the nature of the case. A spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Investigation referred media sources to the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office in Louisiana for comment.

Ohio - An Ohio school teacher accused of having sex with five students says she was taken advantage of by predatory teenagers. Stacy Schuler, who initially pleaded not guilty to the accusations, backtracked Monday and said she was "not guilty by reason of insanity," media sources reported. Her attorneys explained the surprising turn of events. "Stacy Schuler's defense, from a legal standpoint, is based upon her inability to protect herself from the young men involved in this case," her lawyers said in a press release.

The lawyers said Schuler was "impaired" at the time and those students took advantage of her condition. The attorneys did not explain the impairment. Schuler had received a disciplinary action in November 2007 after two students were in the teacher’s classroom when they were not supposed to be there and were missing other classes, according to her personnel file. At the time of the action, the teacher said the two students needed to work out some personal problems and remained in the teacher’s classroom, according to her file.

Schuler, 32, resigned in February as a gym teacher at Mason High School after an anonymous tip a month earlier triggered an investigation into her relationship with several students. The alleged incidents involved several high school football players. They are believed to have taken place between August and December 2010. Prosecutors hit Schuler with a total of 19 charges: 16 counts of sexual battery and three misdemeanor counts involving providing alcohol to minors.

Warren County prosecutors were surprised by the plea change. "For a period of six months what we've heard are outright denials that these events ever happened," prosecutor David Fornshell said, according to local media sources. Schuler is set to go on trial in August. She is presently free on bond and is under house arrest at her parents' home. Authorities also said George Coates, a Mason High School assistant principal who resigned last week, had allegedly sent Schuler text messages involving sexual images. As reported, Coates is not under investigation.

NEW YORK -- Kerbet Dixon (pictured left with two females) the father of former UConn women's guard Lorin Dixon and a volunteer assistant with the Murry Bergtraum High School girls basketball team, was arrested Tuesday on charges of rape, criminal sex act and aggravated sex abuse, according to a New York City Police Department spokesperson. The spokesperson added that there were four cases involving individuals of different ages. Dixon, 47, also has another daughter, CeCe Dixon, who is a rising sophomore on the St. Bonaventure women's basketball team.

Dixon, a Queens court officer, was arraigned on three charges Wednesday, and his bail was set at $10,000 bail bond or $10,000 cash, and neither one had been posted yet, according to the central clerk's office. New York media sources first reported the arrest.

Murry Bergtraum head coach Ed Grezinsky said the arrest had nothing to do with his team and did not want to comment specifically about the arrest, but only had positives to say about Dixon, who Grezinsky said has been around the program for the last four years. CeCe Dixon played at Murry Bergtraum for three years. Grezinsky said that Dixon is listed as a volunteer assistant on the Public Schools Athletic League website but does not have a position as a coach. Dixon announces the lineups before the games and helps out with video, if needed, as well as lending moral support, Grezinsky said.

"He's a highly moral guy and he's very good with the kids and he's respected by the whole team," Grezinsky said. "His character is impeccable and I would vouch for him. He has very high standards and he's a good guy and never had any issues. It was only good stuff with the kids and they really liked him. He has the respect of everybody."

Grezinsky later added: "Hopefully everything goes good for him and whatever charges they have against him get dropped. He was a good friend and always fair to us and there for the team when we needed him."

UNM Major: Pimpology!

SANTA FE, New Mexico (WCJB) – A former University of New Mexico president (pictured below, center) was arrested on Thursday for an alleged role in a massive online prostitution scheme run by a New Jersey professor, police said on Thursday. F. Chris Garcia, 71, a former professor of political science, was arrested by Albuquerque police in connection with Southwest Companions, a web site with almost 1,400 members, Albuquerque police chief Ray Schultz said at a press briefing. Investigators learned that Garcia used the online name "Burquepops" and was a "moderator" on the Southwest Companions website, Schultz said. "The true identity of Burquepops is F. Chris Garcia from the University of New Mexico. He had been actively attempting to delete postings in order to remove any information that linked him to the web site," Schultz told reporters.

Garcia's arrest is the second in the investigation. Dr. David Flory, 68 (pictured left) a longtime physics professor at Fairleigh Dickinson University in Teaneck, N.J., was arrested Sunday on charges that he operated an online prostitution ring from his Manhattan apartment. When arrested he was surfing the Southwest Companions site on a Starbucks patio in Albuquerque, NM. Flory has a vacation home in Santa Fe and another home in Manhattan. Flory, who Schultz said used the online name "David8" to moderate the Southwest Companions site, was charged with 40 counts of promoting prostitution. "He set this website up so that guys and prostitutes could get together without worrying about law enforcement,” Albuquerque Police Lt. William Roseman told media sources. The site was password-protected and allowed users access to over 200 prostitutes. Flory has taught at Fairleigh Dickinson since 1969. A Fairleigh Dickinson spokeswoman said the school is saddened by the arrest. He posted $100,000 bond on Wednesday and was released from jail, Schultz said.

Garcia, who remains in custody, was identified as part of a group described as the "hunt club", which Schultz said was "a group of male clients that would help procure additional clients from outside of the state and from other websites and bring them into the Southwest Companions group." Charges against Garcia include promoting prostitution, conspiracy, and tampering with evidence, Schultz said. Lawyers for Garcia and Flory were not available for comment on Thursday. According to the University of New Mexico website, Garcia was President of the university from August 2002 to July 2003. He has also served as Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences, Vice-President for Academic Affairs, and Provost. The University issued a statement on Thursday saying they would continue to fully cooperate with law enforcement. "Media reports which state the search warrants were served in connection with the multi-state online prostitution ring are deeply disturbing," university spokeswoman Susan McKinsey said.

Southwest Companions differed from "community services" sites like Craigslist or Backpage, which offer individual postings for everything from furniture to escort ads, because "this one was moderated and organized" for sexual hook-ups, Lt. William Roseman, a special investigations officer with the Albuquerque Police Department, said on Sunday.

The site included a three-tiered hierarchy system, whereby trusted "johns" could move up in status through certain acts with prostitutes, he said. The highest level of access included a rating system for prostitutes, as well as detailed information about prostitution stings, with the names of arresting officers and other operation aspects, Roseman said.

"They thought they could never be infiltrated because of the levels of security they tried to build into it," he said. Schultz said investigations were "ongoing" with many search warrants sealed. Charges of racketeering are expected to be added to the case, with additional charges pending from the district attorney's office, he told reporters on Thursday. Officials are awaiting the results of computer and cell phone forensics by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which could take up to three weeks, police said.

Two years ago, when she was a 19-year-old runaway, she says she became the physical property of a California gang, where prostitutes, many of them under age, are often branded with tattoos bearing gang insignias or their pimps' name. Lt. Valencia Saadat with the Oceanside, California Police Department says law enforcement is beginning to look at prostitutes as potential victims of sex trafficking. Three warring gang factions in Oceanside laid down their weapons to form what investigators say is a profitable business enterprise to traffic and prostitute women and girls throughout California.

The Gunnery Mission Statement:

In 1850 Frederick Gunn established a school based on the belief that strength of character was the goal of education. Today, The Gunnery rests on the four cornerstones of character: scholarship, integrity, respect and responsibility. Character is forged in a cohesive, diverse community informed by a challenging college preparatory curriculum, a broad range of athletic, artistic and social activities and a faculty of scholars and committed educators dedicated to the intellectual and ethical development of every student. A Gunnery graduate is a broadly educated, socially responsible citizen with tested beliefs, strength of character and the courage to act on convictions.

LITCHFIELD, Conn. – A former dean at an exclusive Connecticut boarding school was sentenced Friday to 9 1/2 years in prison for sexually abusing four students, after one of the victims and relatives of others testified about how their lives were turned upside down by the crimes. Robert Reinhardt, 46, former dean of The Gunnery school in Washington, Conn., was handcuffed and led out of the courtroom as members of the audience cried and hugged. Reinhardt had apologized before Litchfield Superior Court Judge Charles Gill sentenced him, but it was unspecific and was taken as insincere by the prosecutor and some in the crowd. Reinhardt only said, "I'm sorry for all the events that have occurred."

In April, Reinhardt (pictured left) pleaded to three counts of second-degree sexual assault and one count of risk of injury to a minor under the Alford doctrine, in which defendants dispute the allegations but admit there's enough evidence to be convicted. After prison, Reinhardt, of Telford, Pa., will be on probation for 30 years and must register as a sex offender for 10 years. He will also be barred from having unsupervised contact with children and from working where children are present.

One of the victims testified that he was 16 years old when he began a secret two-year relationship with Reinhardt around 2002. He said he was one of the vulnerable youths Reinhardt preyed upon. At the time his mother was dying of cancer. The man, who is gay, said Reinhardt threatened to tell others about his sexuality and warned that his grades would suffer if he told anyone about the relationship. The victim's name wasn't disclosed, and Corrupt Justice™ does not identify sexual assault victims in most cases. "He's taken so much youth, passion and life from so many," the man said. "I'm a changed man because of this, and not for the better." He then glared at Reinhardt, who continued looking straight ahead at the judge.

Reinhardt resigned from the school in June 2009 after the allegations surfaced and was arrested two months later. He had been on the faculty since 1996 and was named dean in 2006. Authorities said the assaults occurred mostly at Reinhardt's on-campus apartment and included various sex acts, but not forcible rape.

A mother of another victim testified that her son endured death threats and other nasty online messages as word of his allegations made the rounds. Reinhardt was a popular figure at the 161-year-old school in the western Connecticut hills where tuition is $40,000 a year. The mother said friends and faculty distanced themselves from her son and blamed him for what they thought were untrue charges. She also said that during the investigation, her son had to look at police photographs of "trophies" found in Reinhardt's on-campus apartment, including 18 pairs of boy's underwear. "I've seen a personality change in my son," she said before starting to cry. "He may say he's happy or he's sad, but I think for the last two years, he's been in a state of numbness."

Other victims have told officials that the abuse left them with psychological problems, including suicidal thoughts, traumatic memories and the inability to trust others. A lawyer for three of the four victims, said one of her clients attempted suicide last spring. She called Reinhardt a "polished and practiced sexual predator" who should never be allowed around children again.

Another lawyer for the fourth victim, said Reinhardt molested his client more than 70 times during visits to Reinhardt's apartment three to four times a week. Reardon said the victims in the case are upset that Reinhardt hasn't confessed. His client has dropped out of high school and continues to undergo counseling. "My client has permanent scars. My client will never recover from what he has been put through," he said.

Gill told Reinhardt's victims that they didn't do anything wrong. "There's nothing I can do to undo the harm to everyone," Gill said. Three of the victims have lawsuits pending against Reinhardt and the school. Senior Assistant State's Attorney Terri Sonnemann said that while she wanted to see a longer prison sentence for Reinhardt, she was glad the victims didn't have to testify at a trial. "Four young men can now move forward," she said. "There is hope. There has to be."

Children & Porn@School!

June 16, 2011

An assistant principal at a Fauquier County elementary school was arrested Wednesday and charged with possessing and distributing child pornography, federal prosecutors said. Joshua Myers, 29 (pictured left) who works at Greenville Elementary School in Nokesville, chatted online with an undercover officer and gave the officer a password to folders on his computer that contained child p ornography, according to papers filed in U.S. District Court in Alexandria. The officer used the password to download seven videos, including some that show children engaged in sexual contact with adults and other children, court papers say.

During an April 14 online chat with the undercover officer, Myers said that he had traveled to California to have sex with a child and had “engaged in sexual contact with children ranging in age from nine years of age to fourteen years of age,” the court documents say. Myers has not been charged with sexually abusing children.

Fauquier school officials could not be reached for comment.

According to a biography on the Fauquier schools Web site, Myers started in the school system in 2004 as a first-grade teacher at Thompson Elementary. He was appointed as Greenville’s assistant principal in 2008 and also supervised the county’s elementary program for students with emotional disabilities. According to the biography, Myers was a 2008 nominee for the The Washington Post’s Agnes Meyer Awards, given to teachers. Myers was selected to become principal at Brumfield Elementary beginning July 1, according to the biography.

According to court papers, FBI agents from the Child Exploitation Task Force and the Warrenton police department searched Myers’s Fauquier home and car Wednesday and found a thumb drive, which Myers told authorities contained child pornography files. The documents say Myers also told agents that he had similar files on his laptop at school. Myers also said he was the person who had chatted online with the undercover officer, the documents say. Joshua Myers made his first appearance in federal court Thursday where he was ordered held without bond until a detention hearing scheduled for Friday.

4th Grade Porn!

June 16, 2011

ALEXANDRIA, Va. - A fourth-grade teacher in Alexandria arrested two months ago for receipt of child pornography has now been indicted for producing images as well. The indictment Thursday of 35-year-old Justin Coleman (pictured left) of Falls Church, a teacher at John Adams Elementary, comes just a day after an assistant principal in Fauquier County, Joshua Myers, was charged in federal court on child pornography charges. In the last two months, five teachers in Prince William County schools have been charged with having sexual relations with students.

In Coleman's case, U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride said Coleman caused two girls, who were unaware at the time, to engage in sexually explicit conduct. He also allegedly altered existing child pornographic images to depict former students from Japan and Alexandria as engaging in sexual conduct.

Bam' Ma'!

June 2, 2011

In Alabama, a teacher charged with sexually abusing three students pled guilty to two counts and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Amy Caudle (pictured left) will serve three years, with credit for time already served and will have 12 years of supervised probation. District judge Trippy McGuire also ruled that she resign from her job at Andalusia Middle School, surrender her teaching certificate and sign on to the sex offenders register.

Chief assistant district attorney Grace Jeter had told the court that between November 2010 and February 2011 that Caudle performed oral sex on two pupils in her car. The accusations came to light when Caudle had a ‘slip of the tongue’ when talking to a former school system employee.

Amy Caudle, a 31-year-old special education teacher at Andalusia Middle School, was arrested and charged with rape and sodomy. Caudle faced 2 counts of second-degree rape and 3 counts of second-degree sodomy following allegations of misconduct.

"Yo Quiero Taco Bell"!

June 2, 2011

In South Carolina, a 23-year-old Spanish teacher resigned from her job on Tuesday after she was charged with sexual battery with a student. Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said his office received a complaint about an inappropriate relationship between a 16-year-old Boiling Springs high school student and teacher Abby McElhenny (pictured left). He said the relationship came to light when the student’s parents discovered that he was lying about spending the night at a friend’s house.

When they checked his phone they found 391 text messages to an unknown number over a five day period.

When a friend called the phone pretending to be a salesman, they discovered that he had been having an affair with his teacher.

The Spanish teacher had worked as a Spanish teacher at the school for two years and was also the varsity swimming coach.

The teachers joins a long line of female sex predators operating in U.S. schools.

Young Love!

March 17, 2011

A former teacher at Garfield High School pleaded guilty on Thursday to accusations that she had sex with a 17-year-old student in 2010. Taryn M. Fairbanks, 34 (pictured left) now faces six months to a year in jail after pleading guilty to first-degree sexual misconduct with a minor, a felony. "I abused my supervisory position as a teacher in order to engage in sexual intercourse with A.B.," Fairbanks wrote in court documents, using the teen's initials. She will be sentenced April 8.

As part of a plea agreement, prosecutors will recommend that she serve six months with King County work release and that 30 days of confinement be converted to 240 hours of community service. She will give up her teaching license, register as a sex offender and undergo treatment. She will also be prohibited from holding positions of authority over minors.

Fairbanks, who also was known as Taryn Stermer, taught English and was the adviser to the student newspaper at Garfield from September 2006 to June 2010. She moved to Las Vegas in July 2010. Earlier, she taught in the Kent and Renton school districts.

Seattle police got an anonymous tip in late June 2010 about Fairbanks' having a sexual relationship with a former student, who was 19, and the 17-year-old. The 17-year-old told police that Fairbanks came to his home when he was having a party and that she performed oral sex on him in guest bedroom, according to court documents.

She later admitted the sexual conduct to police, saying that she was having a relapse with a drinking problem at the time. As part of her sentence, she must also obtain a substance-abuse evaluation. She is not currently in custody.

Mom's Home Video!

March 21, 2011

(WCJB) -- A woman convicted of sexually abusing her 2-year-old daughter and streaming the acts over the Internet to a teenager in the United Kingdom was sentenced to 20 years in prison. Thirty-three year-old Julie Carr was also convicted of producing child pornography and gross sexual assault and exploitation of a minor.

"When I see child-pornography, I ask myself: Where are the parents? Where are the people who are supposed to be protecting the child?," U.S. District Court Judge John Woodcock said, according to the court transcript. "Well, Ms. Carr, in your case, we know where the mother was."

"I have always thought that possession is bad enough, but production is another level of true evil," Woodcock said. "Unequivocally, yours is the worst case I've ever seen."

The acts took place in June 2009 when Carr used a webcam to deliver four live videos of herself performing oral sex on her youngest daughter, according to the documents. The videos were sent to Nicholas Wilde, then 19, in West Midlands, England, after meeting on an Internet dating site.

They exchanged messages for approximately 10 hours over the month in which the crime occurred, according to the documents. The videos were later discovered by British police after searching Wilde's home in relation to a separate child-pornography case. Police collaborated with American authorities to then identify and locate Carr, the documents said.

Wilde was sentenced last year in England to nearly five years in prison for possessing child-pornography and inciting the sexual abuse of a child, according to West-Midlands police spokeswoman Hazel Steer. Wilde, who claimed to suffer from Asperger's syndrome -- a form of autism -- was ordered to sign the sexual offenders register and is banned from working with children for life.

"I want to say that I am sorry," she told the court. "I never meant to hurt anyone in my family, and I have regretted it ever since."

Meanwhile, Carr's four children have been removed from her custody, according to Assistant U.S. Attorney Todd Lowell. Once released, Carr will receive a mandatory 10 years of supervision where along with checks for drugs and alcohol, her computer and Internet use will be monitored, the documents said. She will also be registered as a sex offender.

Can't Waite!

March 7, 2011, 2011

Ogden, Utah • Assistant swim coach Jamie Jo Waite was arrested on suspicion of rape of a minor and sodomy involving a minor. It is alleged that the relationship began in November of last year and continued through February. After a November swim meet, Waite told the 17-year-old senior and a junior student that she could buy them alcohol, according to testimony in 2nd District Court on Monday. The former Ben Lomond High School swimmer says the sexual relationship he had with an assistant swim coach started with alcohol and a dare. After a night of drinking vodka with Waite, the junior dared the older boy to follow Waite into the bathroom, according to testimony. “I bet you won’t go and do something,” the senior recalled the junior as saying. “I said, ‘OK. I will.’ ”

The senior said it was the first of more than a dozen times he would have sex with the assistant coach. After hearing about 90 minutes of testimony, 2nd District Judge Scott Hadley ordered the 35-year-old Waite to stand trial on four counts of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony. A trial is set for December.

Waite was arrested in March after a friend tipped off police to the alleged relationship. The friend said Waite was afraid she might be pregnant with the student’s baby and was possibly targeting a younger student, prosecutors said.

The alleged victim said Waite would pick him up from school during the day and take him to her Ogden apartment. There, he often drank alcohol and occasionally smoked marijuana, he said in court. Waite had worked as an unpaid, volunteer assistant swim coach at Ben Lomond for more than four years. The boy said he had known Waite since he was a sophomore.

Outside the courtroom, Waite’s attorney questioned the integrity of her accuser. The boy originally told police he had slept with the woman four times to “minimize it.” “I think this kid is riding the wave of bragging about having sex with an older female,” the attorney said. “This is the kind of charge where you’re basically guilty until proven innocent.”

Top News Story!


January 5, 2012

(WCJB) -- Casey Anthony's "first video diary," apparently recorded last October, surfaced on YouTube this week, but her lawyer says she did not put it there. Anthony, acquitted last summer of murder charges in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee, but convicted of four counts of lying to authorities investigating the child's disappearance, appeared optimistic about her future as she talked to a computer.

"Just a little surreal how much things have changed since July and how many things haven't changed," she said. "But the good thing is that things are starting to look up and things are starting to change in a good way. I just hope they stay, that things stay good and that they only get better." She's living at an undisclosed location in Florida while she serves a one-year probation sentence for her 2010 conviction on check fraud charges.

"Casey has maintained notes and memoirs for her personal counseling," Anthony's attorney told media sources on Thursday. "She did not upload or release this to YouTube. She doesn't know how the video got on YouTube. She did not authorize it, and therefore it had to be obtained illegally."

Anthony never mentions Caylee in the four-minute black-and-white video, but she does talk about a dog "I've adopted and I love." She sat alone, staring at the computer, which she said she's "just starting to figure out," as she recorded what she called "my first video diary." She promised it would be "the first of many." She wore dark-rimmed glasses, and her naturally brunette hair was colored blond. "I hate being on camera, but I don't know, I need to conquer that fear at some point, and this is a good start," she said. "So, here's something. It's the end of the first but just the beginning." She paid for the computer, but the camera was a gift, she said. "I'm extremely excited, extremely excited that I'll be able to Skype and obviously keep a video log, take some pictures," Anthony said. "It's been a long time since I've been able to call something mine," she said. "And now that I have something even, you know, it's silly saying that I have a computer and a camera and a phone." She appeared to say the name of the person who gave her a phone, although the audio was edited from the version of the video posted online. "These are things that are mine that I don't have to, I don't know, that I don't have to give back," she said. "It's kind of nice, finally, being able to say that I have some belongings that are mine, that I'll be able to take with me after I leave here next year. It's kind of funny to think about." Anthony said the computer and camera have "been such a blessing in so many ways."

"Now I always have someone to talk to when I'm by myself, so I'm not bothering the poor dog that I've adopted and I love, and he's as much my dog as any of the other pets I've ever had," she said. Anthony, 25, spent nearly three years in jail waiting for her murder trial. She was freed on July 17, 2011. She speculated that she could be freed from her probation conditions, which require her to report weekly and remain in an undisclosed area, as early as February or as late as August.

The untold story of Caylee Anthony

Casey Anthony's Defense!

Daddy's Other Girl!

June 30, 2011

ORLANDO, Fla. - The Casey Anthony defense team has called Krystal Holloway, who they have claimed was the mistress of Casey's father George, as their first witness on Thursday. Krystal Holloway said she met George Anthony at a tent during the search for Caylee Anthony in October 2008, reports local media sources. Holloway testified that she developed an intimate relationship with George Anthony and that he came to her home around a dozen times, reports the station. Holloway said that during a conversation about Casey Anthony around Thanksgiving 2008, she said George Anthony told her Caylee's death was an accident. "He said it was an accident that snowballed out of control. I was in shock. By the time I looked up, his eyes were full of tears. I didn't elaborate. I didn't ask him anything further," Holloway said, reports the station.

Holloway said the police came to her for the first time in 2010 asking her if she knew George Anthony and if she had an affair with him. Holloway said she provided investigators with her cellphone and letters George Anthony had written her. She said she initially lied to investigators about the affair because she was embarrassed, but she eventually told them the truth, the station reports. Holloway said her relationship ended with George Anthony shortly after Caylee's remains were found in December 2008.

[O]n cross-examination, prosecutor Jeff Ashton accused Holloway of sensationalizing her story to make more money. He accused Holloway of seeking out the Anthony family because they were well known after Caylee was reported missing, the station reports. Holloway admitted she was paid $4,000 by the National Enquirer to tell her story. The defense was not allowed to ask Holloway about whether she loaned George Anthony money.

Earlier this week, George Anthony denied having an intimate relationship with Holloway. He said he only went to her home once to console her because she had cancer. He did admit to sending Holloway one text message that said, "Just thinking about you. I need you in my life," but he said he needed a lot of the volunteers he had grown close to.

Corrupt Justice™: In summarizing the last few days of testimony in the Casey Anthony Trial, we note:

George Anthony is and remains a married man;
George Anthony is a former Police Detective;
George Anthony had a romantic/slash sexual relationship with a volunteer searching for a granddaughter he knew to be deceased; and
During testimony at his daughter's murder trial, Under Penalty of Perjury, in a court of law, ex-Det. George denies this sexual/romantic relationship with the volunteer.

George Anthony Interview August 3, 2008:

"Definitely something happened to Caylee, she's no longer with us and Casey was the last one I'd seen with her…one and one adds up to two no matter how you try to spin it[.]"

-- George Anthony's June 29, 2011 testimony in his daughter's murder trial!

We can only wonder how many other times ex-Det. George lied on the witness stand in a court of law.

Casey Anthony's first-degree murder trial descended into chaos on Wednesday morning when prosecutors entered a flurry of objections as the defense attempted to question the accused child killer's parents about sexual abuse they allege she suffered at the hands of family members. "I would never do anything like that to my daughter," the defendant's father, George Anthony, said when asked if he had molested Casey.

Defense attorney Jose Baez then asked George Anthony if he would ever admit to abusing his daughter. "You would never admit to it, would you sir," Baez asked. Anthony again denied any wrong doing. "I would never do anything to harm my daughter in that way," he said. The alleged abuses were brought up by the defense during opening arguments, after Baez claimed Caylee died on June 16, 2008, when she drowned in her family's swimming pool. He said Anthony did not contact the authorities because she was unable to tell the truth after years of sordid sexual abuse that she suffered at the hands of her father. "It all began when Casey was eight years old and her father came into her room and began to touch her inappropriately and it escalated... She could be 14 years old, have [had] her father's penis in her mouth, and go to school and play with the other kids as if nothing [had] happened," Baez said.

Stonewalled with denials from George Anthony on the alleged molestation, Baez turned his line of questioning to a highly publicized suicide attempt that occurred on January 22, 2009. On that day, former Anthony family lawyer Brad Conway contacted law enforcement and reported George Anthony missing. In his 911 call, Conway said Anthony "has taken several bottles of medication from the house as well as some pictures." The following day, police found a despondent Anthony, along with a five page suicide note, at a Daytona Beach, Fla., hotel. Anthony was taken into police custody and briefly held at a medical center for evaluation.

On the stand today, Anthony admitted attempting to take his own life and then broke down on the stand. Casey Anthony did not react as her father put his head in his hands and sobbed. Earlier in the morning, George Anthony became agitated with Baez when he was again questioned about an odor he said he had smelled in the trunk of his daughter's Pontiac Sunfire when he went to retrieve it from Johnson's Wrecker on July 15, 2008. The vehicle had been impounded by the Orlando towing company on June 30, 2008, roughly two weeks after Caylee was last seen alive.

"You're trying to take this joy of my life away from me, sir, and you can't do it anymore," Anthony said. "I will answer this to you, sir - the decomposition that I smelled in the trunk of my daughters car on July 15, 2008 at Johnson's towing smelled like human decomposition."

During previous testimony Anthony, a former police detective, said he was initially afraid of what he might find in the trunk of the vehicle and thought, "Please God, don't let this be my Casey or my Caylee [in the trunk]," he testified.

June 28, 2011

ORLANDO, Fla. - The Casey Anthony murder trial resumed after a lunch break Tuesday with the playing of two 911 calls made by meter reader Roy Kronk, who found the remains of toddler Caylee Anthony. Kronk made the calls on Aug. 11 and 12 in 2008. Kronk described finding an unknown, suspicious white object and described exactly where he was, according to local media sources. During opening statements, Casey Anthony's defense team accused Kronk of somehow obtaining Caylee's remains and planting them in the woods to obtain a reward. Lead defense attorney Jose Baez described Kronk as "morally bankrupt," reports the station.

Earlier in the day all three of Casey Anthony's immediate family members were called to the stand by the defense. Casey's brother Lee and mother Cindy gave conflicting testimony. Baez asked Cindy Anthony if she ever asked private investigators Jim Hoover and Dominic Casey to search the woods off Suburban Drive where Caylee's remains were found. She said no, the station reports. Both private investigators testified on Monday that they were not instructed by any member of the Anthony family to search in that area. Dominic Casey said he was led there by a psychic.

Lee Anthony said his mother told him she got a psychic tip and sent Casey into the woods off Suburban Drive to search for Caylee. He said he argued with his mother about the search, because it was the first time he heard of anyone in his family searching for a deceased Caylee, according to the station. He said he was not sure when the argument took place but it was sometime late in the year, but before he went back to work in October 2008. Both investigators testified that the search of the area off Suburban Drive took place in November 2008, at least one month after Lee Anthony said he argued with his mother about the search. The Casey Anthony case was recently reported on by "48 Hours Mystery."

Internet Searches!

June 23, 2011

(WCJB) -- Casey Anthony's mother, Cindy Anthony, testified Thursday that she, not her daughter, conducted Internet searches for key words including chloroform and alcohol on the Anthony family computer in March 2008. Cindy Anthony told jurors in her daughter's capital murder trial that she conducted the searches because she was trying to figure out what was making one of her Yorkie dogs "extremely tired all the time." Both the dogs ate bamboo plants in the backyard, she testified, so she started searching for chlorophyll to see if the plants were causing the dog's exhaustion.

A bacteria associated with chlorophyll production comes from different plants, she said, and some species of algae and seaweed produce natural chloroform, so the search led her from chlorophyll to chloroform. She also was searching for other chemicals, including alcohol, she told defense attorney Jose Baez, because of a recent scare regarding hand sanitizers around small children. And she searched on some injuries, she said, because a friend of hers had recently been in a car accident and suffered head and chest injuries. She was, she said, "looking up specific terminology that someone had asked me to look up."

In a testy cross-examination, prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick noted that Cindy Anthony's work schedule showed she was working the days the searches were conducted, March 17 and 21, 2008. The witness said it was possible she could have been home, saying she went home early a couple of days that week. "Were you or weren't you?" Burdick asked.

"The only thing that triggers that day for me is those computer entries," Cindy Anthony told the Orlando courtroom. "It was not a traumatic day for me like the last three years, so I can't tell you what time I went home." Prosecutors allege Casey Anthony used chloroform to render her daughter unconscious, then used duct tape to cover her nose and mouth, suffocating her. Caylee's remains, prosecutors allege, were then put into Casey Anthony's car trunk and eventually disposed of. The girl's skeletal remains were found in a wooded field on December 11, 2008, nearly six months after her family last reported having seen the child.

Defense attorneys say Caylee was not murdered, but that she accidentally drowned in the family pool on June 16, 2008, the day she was last reported to have been seen. They argue that Anthony and her father, George Anthony, panicked and covered up the death. George Anthony has rejected that scenario in his testimony. Caylee was not reported missing to police until July 15, 2008, when Cindy Anthony tracked down her daughter and demanded answers regarding Caylee's whereabouts.

Earlier in the trial, experts testified that someone conducted the keyword searches on a desktop computer in the home Casey Anthony shared with her parents. The searches were found in a portion of the computer's hard drive that indicated they had been deleted, Detective Sandra Osborne of the Orange County Sheriff's Office testified Wednesday in Anthony's capital murder trial. However, she told jurors, deleted material remains on a computer's hard drive and can be retrieved until it is overwritten by new data. It had not been overwritten on the Anthonys' computer, she said, and "a complete Internet history" was obtained.

The searches using the keyword chloroform were conducted in March, three months before Caylee disappeared, according to testimony. It appears the computer user first searched for "chloraform" on Google and received results for "chloroform," said John Bradley, owner of the software development company that created the software used to retrieve the data. One of the search results was from Wikipedia.org, which was accessed, he testified. It also appeared searches were conducted using terms such as inhalation, self-defense, meningeal artery, ruptured spleen, alcohol and head injury, he said. The user either typed those terms in to search, Bradley said, or in some instances might have clicked on links on the Wikipedia site to go to a different page.

Searches were also conducted on "how to make chloroform," "neck breaking" and "making weapons out of household products," Bradley testified. Cindy Anthony testified Thursday she did not search for how to make chloroform or household weapons. She said she also did not search for neck breaking, but remembered a pop-up ad featuring a skateboarder doing a "neck-breaking stunt." She testified that she told authorities about her search for chlorophyll earlier.

She said she would not know for sure if she was home March 17 and 21, 2008, unless she could access her work computer. When Burdick questioned her about why she never tried to get that information, she said her work passwords would have long since expired, as she has not returned since July 2008. She also testified about a stain in Casey Anthony's trunk, saying it had been there since they bought the car in 2000.

Orange County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Kevin Stenger, a forensic computer examiner, followed Cindy Anthony to the stand, where he was questioned about the report on the searches he compiled. Asked by Burdick whether a search for "how to make chloroform" would have showed up in such a fashion if someone had typed the word "chlorophyll," Stenger said it would not.

The jury was dismissed after Stenger's testimony. Prosecutors questioned the defense's next two witnesses -- FBI agent Nick Savage and Erin Martin, request coordinator for the FBI laboratory -- to determine whether their testimony was admissible. Prosecutor Jeff Ashton told Orange County Chief Judge Belvin Perry Jr. it appeared that neither witness had any direct knowledge of the case.

Showed an e-mail regarding a request for photos from the medical examiner's office, Savage said he had never before seen it, and was dismissed. Martin, the sender of the e-mail -- which had to do with the medical examiner's office not taking scale photos of the duct tape that covered the mouth portion of Caylee's remains -- said she had nothing else to do with the matter besides sending the e-mail.

Defense attorney J. Cheney Mason argued the information provided by the witnesses was relevant to the case, but Perry said it was not and ruled neither witness could testify before the jury.

Meanwhile, after saying Casey Anthony's parents do not believe she is innocent on Wednesday, an attorney representing George and Cindy Anthony issued a statement Thursday clarifying his remarks. "The Anthony family maintains that they simply want justice in this case," said attorney Mark Lippman. "The Anthony family maintains they do not, under any circumstance, support any theory that the defense has put forward regarding George Anthony's actions. The Anthony family maintains that while they want both the state and the defense to do their jobs respectively, they do not under any circumstance wish to see that the state achieves the ultimate sanction that the State of Florida is looking for, which is the death penalty.

"The Anthony family maintains they want the truth about what has happened to their granddaughter," Lippman said in the statement. "Finally, Lippman Law Offices does not and will not condone the idea that attorney-client privilege was ever breached and any misunderstanding as to statements should not be considered that the Anthony family wants anything other than the things identified here."

Tuchman said Thursday the statement "doesn't mean (the Anthonys) feel she's guilty of the charges against her." Saying someone is not innocent is not quite the same, he noted, as saying they are legally guilty. "But this is important and they wanted me to stress this," Tuchman said on the show Wednesday. "They love her, they support her and they do not want her to get the death penalty and they will do all they can to avoid her getting the death penalty in this case." Tuchman acknowledged Thursday that Lippman was "not happy" after the story aired. He said that in a follow-up conversation, he asked Lippman what he thought was taken out of context, and Lippman said he could not point to anything Tuchman said that was out of context, but said there was "too much hype" in the discussion. "That happens sometimes," Tuchman said.

He said Lippman also said that not everything he told Tuchman was mentioned on the show. That is true, Tuchman said, but added, "I certainly included every single thing that was important and relevant to this discussion."

Jurors in the case are sequestered and barred from watching or reading news coverage.

On Thursday, defense attorneys called a forensic toxicologist to the stand in an effort to cast doubt on the forensic testing done at Tennessee's Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

However, Barry Logan's testimony was punctuated by frequent prosecution objections, and prosecutors scored some points when Perry did not allow some lines of questioning. The testimony was also the subject of frequent sidebar conferences between Perry and attorneys for both sides.

Arpad Vass, a research scientist at the Oak Ridge laboratory, earlier testified for the prosecution that testing on a carpet sample from the trunk showed chloroform at a level that was "shockingly high." He also testified the odor in the air samples he received was "extremely overwhelming." He identified it as human decomposition.

Vass also said he found compounds associated with human decomposition in the trunk.

Stephen Shaw, a hair and fiber examiner for the FBI, was also recalled to the stand on Thursday. Earlier in the trial, Perry barred Shaw from showing a PowerPoint presentation to jurors regarding a study he is conducting on decomposition in hair.

Shaw has testified in his study, he was attempting to recreate banding in hairs taken from living people. While he said some of the hairs -- which were put in varying indoor and outdoor locations -- showed evidence of decomposition, none showed postmortem banding like that testimony has showed was on a hair taken from Anthony's trunk.

Shaw has acknowledged he cannot state definitively that postmortem banding is exclusively seen in hair taken from dead people. Two independent examiners as part of his study both analyzed the hairs, and each in their initial findings identified a hair as banded from a live person, although they both discounted that in their confirmed findings, he said.

Baez and Ashton questioned Shaw further on his study Thursday. Shaw told Baez he cannot say whether a specific hair comes from a dead person. In his earlier testimony, he told Ashton that he has seen thousands of hairs in his career and that he has never seen a hair with a decomposition band that did not come from a corpse.

Duct tape Didn't Kill!

June 18, 2011

Orlando, Fla. (WCJB) -- Duct tape found on Caylee Anthony's skull was placed there after the toddler's body had decomposed, not before she died, a forensic pathologist testified Saturday as the murder trial of the girl's mother ended its fourth week on a contentious note. Prosecutors claim Caylee's mother, Casey Anthony, used chloroform to make her daughter unconscious then used duct tape to cover her nose and mouth, suffocating her. The girl's skeletal remains were found in a wooded field six months after her family last reported seeing her.

Dr. Werner Spitz said he believes the tape was placed on the body long after the flesh had disappeared to hold the jaw bone on, perhaps because someone wanted to move it.
Spitz also criticized the Orange County medical examiner, Dr. Jan Garavaglia, for conducting what he termed a "shoddy autopsy" by failing to cut Caylee's skull open to look inside. Spitz' testimony came after Chief Judge Belvin Perry ordered the first defense witness off the stand and threatened attorney Jose Baez with contempt proceedings for failing to tell prosecutors about the man's planned testimony.

Forensic anthropologist William Rodriguez told Judge Belvin Perry after the jury had been excused that he was preparing to testify that no conclusions can be drawn from duct tape found near the girl's body because of decomposition and movement of the bones by animals. Rodriguez also said he planned to testify that a video prepared by a prosecution expert superimposing Caylee's living face with a picture of her skull and the outline of a piece of duct tape was an "unheard of" application of technology meant only to provide initial identifications of remains.

But Rodriguez' opinions were not contained in his report filed with the court, and weren't shared with prosecutors. That violated Perry's rule that all expert testimony be shared with opposing attorneys, Perry said. "It appears to me that this was quite intentional," Perry said to Baez. "This was not some inadvertent slip."

He ordered Rodriguez off the stand, but said he will be allowed to testify on Monday, after prosecutors have a chance to interview him. Perry said the law would appear to authorize him the right to exclude the testimony, but said that would be too drastic a step. "It would be totally unfair to Ms. Anthony to have his testimony excluded on this critical issue," he said. But he said he would be watching Baez' conduct closely and will consider contempt proceedings at the end of the trial. "I am not making any promises or warranties about what I will do if it happens a second time with this witness," Perry scolded Baez.

Rodriguez and Spitz are part of the defense effort to discredit, among other things, a prosecution theory that duct tape found clinging to the girl's remains may have been the murder weapon. Duct tape similar to that found with Caylee's body was located on a gas can from the Anthony home that Casey Anthony took from a storage shed during her daughter's disappearance, according to earlier testimony in the case.

Spitz began his testimony challenging the thoroughness of the autopsy performed on Anthony, saying examining the inside of the skull is standard practice. He testified that dried sediment he found indicated the body had decomposed on its left side, with the face pointing slightly up. That differs from evidence at the scene indicating the skull was upright when it was discovered. Spitz said the lack of DNA found on the tape would suggest it was placed on the girl's skull by someone who wanted to move it for some reason. The tape, he said, was intended to keep the jawbone from falling off.

On cross-examination, prosecutor Jeff Ashton asked Spitz if the sediment was not "brain dust" but perhaps something that carried into the skull by water while the body lay under water in the flood-prone spot where it was found. Spitz responded that the fact that the material was residue from the girl's body was as plain as the jawbone on the replica skull he was using as an illustration during his testimony. But he acknowledged that the material had not been chemically proven to be from the girl's body. Ashton also questioned Spitz' characterization of Garavaglia's autopsy. He challenged the physician -- who co-wrote a book on forensic investigations -- to cite any specific protocol requiring that a pathologist saw open the skull of a thoroughly decomposed body -- including in his own book. Spitz said that he could not, but that his long experience and training tells him that failing to look at the inside of body's skull is poor practice. "The skull, the head, is part of the body, and when you do an autopsy you examine the whole body," he said.

Defense attorneys claim Caylee was not murdered, but that she accidentally drowned in the family pool on June 16, the day she was last seen. They argue that Anthony and her father, George Anthony, panicked and covered up the death. George Anthony has rejected that scenario in his testimony. Casey Anthony is charged with seven counts, including first degree murder, in the death of her daughter, whose remains were discovered in a wooded field in December 2008, six months after her last family saw her.

Saturday was the third day of the defense case. The case will enter its fifth week Monday.

June 18, 2011

Casey Anthony's "surprise witness" became an embarrassment for the defense today when the witness held a news conference outside of the courthouse where she is being tried for murder and said that he did not know the Anthony family. Defense attorney Jose Baez included Vasco Thompson, a convicted kidnapper, as a last minute surprise addition to his amended witness list earlier this week. Baez claimed that Thompson and Casey Anthony's father, George Anthony, shared a series of phone conversations the day before 2-year-old Caylee Anthony's disappearance was reported to authorities in July 2008.

George Anthony angrily issued a statement through his attorney earlier this week denying those claims. Today, Vasco Thompson stood outside the Orange County courthouse and also denied that he'd ever met George Anthony. "I have no idea who George Anthony is," Thompson said. "The phone number they got, I didn't have that number until February of 2009. I don't know why they dragged me into all this mess." Baez never said what Thompson's connection to the case may have been, but he has accused George Anthony of helping to dispose of Caylee's body after she accidentally drowned in the family pool. It is unlikely that Baez will now call Thompson to the witness stand.

Most of the drama around the Casey Anthony trial happened outside the courthouse today. Hours before Thompson spoke, a brawl erupted among people who had lined up all night for a coveted seat to the murder trial. The violence prompted the Orange County Courthouse to change their rules today for those seeking admission to the trial.

June 10, 2011

The Casey Anthony trial, including showing graphic pictures of Caylee Anthony's remains.

'I'm the victim!'

Caylee's skeletal remains were found in December 2008 in a wooded field not far from the home of Casey Anthony's parents, George and Cindy Anthony. She has pleaded not guilty and denied harming her daughter or having anything to do with the little girl's disappearance or death. Her Defense attorney has said that once all the facts are known, it will become clear his client is innocent.

The first police officer to arrive at the Anthony home after 2-year-old Caylee Anthony was reported missing testified Wednesday that her mother, Casey Anthony, was initially reluctant to provide him with information regarding the little girl's whereabouts.
Orange County, Florida, sheriff's deputy Rendon Fletcher told jurors in Anthony's capital murder trial that he asked Anthony about her daughter, but "she really didn't say much ... she wasn't very forthcoming with anything, any type of information, initially." But he said eventually, Anthony told him that "her daughter had been missing for a period of time," about a month, and that the last time she had seen Caylee was in the custody of the nanny she left the child with. Fletcher testified Anthony told him she apparently had been trying to find the child on her own, and it was unclear why she had not previously contacted authorities.

As other officers arrived at the Orlando home of Casey Anthony's parents, she was quizzed about where the nanny lived, and agreed to show the deputies where her apartment was. She directed deputies to the Sawgrass Apartments and pointed out a second-floor apartment, Fletcher testified. When he approached the apartment, he said he could see the blinds were open, but saw no furniture inside and "it appeared to be vacant." He knocked, he said, but got no answer. Authorities were never able to find the nanny, even though Casey Anthony gave them a name. They did find a woman named Zenaida "Zanny" Gonzalez, who denied ever meeting Casey Anthony or Caylee and later sued for defamation.
