When backup arrives, the officer (whose name was not released by MPD) says he “only wanted one [car for backup].” He claims that Brown got “right up in my face.” Several officers surround Brown. One angrily tells him to get his hand out of his pocket. When Brown points out that his hands are full, the officer wrenches Brown’s hand out, and a group of officers wrestle him to the ground and tase him. Brown can be heard groaning in anguish after an officer shouts “Taser! Taser! Taser!”

New York, NY {PUBLISHED: March 6, 2017 at 12:50 pm | UPDATED: August 24, 2017 at 01:53 am} -- The New York health department alerted doctors to the case of a newborn who fell ill after undergoing the ultra-Orthodox Jewish practice in which the circumcision wound is cleaned by the Rabbi's mouth. 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.

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)

Aiken, S.C. (WCJB) ~ United States -- A horrifying new dashcam video shows at least one white member of the Aiken, S.C. Police Department search inside a black man’s rectum for the apparent crime of being a passenger in a car with paper tags, which, it bears noting, is not a crime in the state of South Carolina. Driving a car with paper tags isn’t illegal either, as long as they aren’t expired.

Pink housing projects in the East New York section of Brooklyn. Jury selection in the case was completed last week. Gurley died more than 14 months ago, on November 20, 2014, as two cops were making a “vertical patrol,” checking the stairwells in the high-rise building. As Brooklyn Assistant District Attorney Marc Fliedner put it, opening the prosecution’s case, “Akai Gurley is dead today because he crossed paths with Peter Liang.” Liang was indicted by a Brooklyn grand jury on manslaughter and other charges last February, and both prosecution and defense agree on the immediate events that led to Gurley’s death.(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)

"Dilemmas of Democracy
Race & Police Brutality in the USA - 2012!"


Runtime: 01:34:31 (One Hour, Thirty-Four Min. & Thirty-One Secs.)
Movie Site: Streat Beatz & Movie Flixs™ Site (Link to Movies)

Description: In the United States, race and police brutality continue to be closely linked, and the phenomenon has sparked a string of race riots and general uprisings over the years. During the Vietnam War, anti-war demonstrations were sometimes quelled through the use of billy-clubs and CS gas, commonly known as tear gas. The most notorious of these assaults took place during the August 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. The actions of the police were later described as a "police riot" in the Walker Report to the U.S. National Commission on the Causes and Prevention of Violence (See Documentary). One recent and notable uprising was caused by the arrest and beating of Rodney King on March 3, 1991 by officers of the Los Angeles Police Department. The police officers' brutality had been videotaped by a bystander and widely broadcast (around the world) afterwards. When the four law enforcement officers charged with assault and other charges were acquitted, the 1992 Los Angeles Riots broke out (See Documentary). Copyright © 2013 Streat Beatz™.

Evergreen High!

Posted: Jan 28, 2015 12:53 PM PST Updated: Jan 30, 2015 12:22 PM PST

VANCOUVER, WA (WCJB) - An Evergreen High School teacher facing charges including child rape coached the 15-year-old victim on what to say if law enforcement ever got involved, according to court documents.

Stephanie McCrea, 35, was arrested Tuesday afternoon. She made her first court appearance Wednesday.

According to court documents, the victim in this case told detectives that he had been having a sexual relationship with McCrea since December 2014.

McCrea is the director of the drama department at Evergreen High School.

The boy told investigators that they would meet in her office to kiss four to five times a week, according to a probable cause affidavit.

That affidavit states that the boy also described instances of sexual contact in McCrea's office prior to winter vacation.

The teen said he had sexual intercourse with McCrea on two occasions, court documents state. The first time was over winter vacation when McCrea picked him up from his home and took him back to her house to exchange Christmas gifts, according to court documents.

The second and last time, according to the arresting officer's declaration of probable cause, was on the first day of classes following the holidays in McCrea's office after school.

The boy told police, "McCrea checked her phone and commented she did not want to be late picking up her child from soccer," the affidavit states.

According to court documents, McCrea has a 9-year-old son and is separated from her husband.

The Evergreen School District placed McCrea on administrative leave when the allegations first surfaced. In court Wednesday, attorneys said McCrea continued talking to the victim while she was on leave.

They said she created fake Facebook accounts to continue communicating with the boy.

Court documents state McCrea also rehearsed what to say with the teen if they were ever interviewed by law enforcement, including practicing questions he could potentially be asked.

"She would correct and critique his responses," court documents state.

The boy told investigators he and McCrea had planned to continue their relationship and not make it public until he turned 18 years old, according to a probable cause affidavit.

McCrea posted bail and was released from jail Wednesday evening. She did not comment after her release.

As part of her release conditions, she is to have no contact with minors, except her own child, court documents state. She can pick up and drop her child off at school, but she may not get out of the vehicle.

McCrea is also not allowed to use the Internet or electronic media.

She is due back in court Feb. 11.

Ferris Wheels!

Published On: Nov. 20, 2014 05:50:26 PM PST ~ Updated On: Nov. 23, 2014 06:34:05 PM PST

SPOKANE, Wash. - Ferris High School vice principal Todd Bender surrendered himself at the Spokane County Jail Tuesday after police issued a warrant for his arrest. Bender was initially confronted by sex crimes detectives on November 4. Police say Bender was despondent at the time of his surrender. The next day he was taken by ambulance to the hospital. He was treated for a possible prescription pill overdose. He was then transferred to a Seattle hospital for additional treatment. Bender returned to Spokane Tuesday night. Spokane School district officials say they are finally in a position to talk to him about the allegations.

Bender made an appearance in Spokane Superior Court Thursday to enter not guilty pleas to third degree child molestation charges. Bender was also issued a sexual assault protection order prohibiting him from having any contact with the alleged victim. The court let stand a $50,000 bond Bender posted Tuesday night. His trial is scheduled for February.

Spokane school district officials were also notified on November 4th that Bender was suspected of a molesting a 14 year old family friend. “When we were notified by the police department of this particular case, we moved within two hours to remove the individual from the site and ensure that they were not going to be in harms way of children or any students or staff members,” district official Kevin Morrison said. “I think the reason so much of what the public has been wanting to understand, why is it taking so long, the length of time of this process that happens and part of it is the district has not had access to this individual,” Morrison said.

School officials are also mindful that Ferris parents want more information on Bender's alleged behavior and his future with the district. The school district is moving forward with it's next step in the disciplinary process against Bender. The school district has already placed Bender on leave but can't fire him without due process or run the risk of a lawsuit. “We have to follow those laws and on top of that there is a fiscal responsibility as well to make sure that due process was followed,” Morrison said. “I think I can assure the public that on behalf of the superintendent and the school board that due process will be moving very swiftly,” Morrison said.

Drop Out!

LOS ANGELES, CA — The Los Angeles school district on Friday removed a lawyer who successfully defended it in a sexual abuse lawsuit. The trial victory spared the cash-strapped district a potentially pricey verdict. The trial strategy and remarks by attorney W. Keith Wyatt that it was a more dangerous decision to cross the street than to have sex with a teacher drew criticism. He also told jurors that a 14-year-old girl who had sex with a male teacher shared responsibility despite her age.

Elkis Hermida, the teacher in the case, was sentenced in 2011 to three years in prison for lewd acts against a child. The Los Angeles Unified School District claimed it was unaware of the relationship between the teacher and student. The district was cleared last year of wrongdoing by a civil jury in Los Angeles Superior Court. The case exposed an apparent inconsistency in the standard for sexual consent in California criminal and civil cases. In criminal cases, a 14-year-old girl is too young to consent to sex with an adult. Wyatt, however, cited a federal court decision that said a minor could consent to sex in some circumstances. The girl was not awarded damages for the emotional trauma she said she suffered during a five-month relationship with the teacher.

The federal case cited by Wyatt relies on a California Supreme Court decision about jury instructions in an incest case. According to a law professor at the University of Washington, "The creative application of the language was probably never envisioned by the state's high court. Some language plucked out of the original case has grown to monstrous proportions," the professor said. "Pretty soon it looks like a viable argument. When a court accepts it, it just grows into its own beast." Wyatt had argued that the teacher and girl went to extreme lengths to hide their relationship.

The girl is appealing the case because the judge allowed evidence of her sexual history to be presented to the jury. She has also based her appeal on the fact Wyatt blamed her for consenting to the sex even though she was too young to do so. Lawyers and advocates for sexual abuse victims said the legal tactic was surprising. "I was shocked. I've done sexual abuse cases against school districts before and I've never seen the persistence of this argument," said the attorney who filed the appeal for the girl. "I've never seen this at all that the victim willingly participated in this and that they should bear some responsibility in their injuries." She said there were enough warning signs that the school should have been aware of the teacher's conduct. He was seen hugging other girls and began to groom the victim at age 13. The teacher started texting, phone calls and exchanging photos, the attorney said. The attorney added that the sexual abuse began when the girl was 14 and some of it occurred in the classroom.

The appellate attorney said she also plans to argue that the girl's sexual past should not have been allowed into evidence. Typically, such evidence is barred in criminal cases by rape shield laws, but not always in civil actions. "It's terrible, but not unusual that a school would try to muddy the waters" by presenting such evidence, said the vice president at the National Women's Law Center. "The law on whether and when that sort of evidence is permitted is sort of murky and one of the reasons why Congress is looking at additional law ... that looks more like a criminal rape shield law."

When questioned by media sources, Wyatt stated: "She lied to her mother so she could have sex with her teacher. She went to a motel in which she engaged in voluntary consensual sex with her teacher. Why shouldn't she be responsible for that? In a statement Dave Holmquist, general counsel for the school district, said: "Mr. Wyatt's comments yesterday were completely inappropriate, and they undermine the spirit of the environment we strive to offer our students every day. Our deepest apologies go out to the young woman and her family, who were hurt by the insensitive remarks of Mr. Wyatt." Wyatt, who had worked with the district through an outside firm for 27 years and had 18 cases pending, would not comment on his dismissal.

Montgomery County, PA -- A recently retired music professor at Penn State Abington was arrested this week and charged with various crimes from allegedly exchanging naked photos and lewd e-mails with a 16-year-old girl in Spain.

Stephen Stace, 65 (pictured above, center) who retired as an associate professor of music and integrative arts in June, sent at least three nude photos of himself to the girl over about nine months, according to Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney Jordan Friter.

Using his Penn State e-mail address, according to a district attorney's news release, Stace also asked for and received nude photos from the girl. The two continually exchanged sexually explicit e-mails, the release said, and Stace often said he wanted to meet.

A message left for Stace's attorney Friday was not immediately returned. Stace was arraigned Thursday and released on bail, Friter said. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Oct. 21.

Cheerleading Captain!

Minnetonka, Minn. -- Montia Parker (pictured above, center) a former cheerleading captain from a suburban Minneapolis high school, was sentenced to three years in prison today for prostituting a younger squad member.

Parker, 18, will spend at least two of the three years behind bars before she’s eligible for release, said Chuck Laszewski, spokesman for the Hennepin County prosecutor. If she has good behavior, she will serve the remaining third of her sentence on probation, he said.

“After a fairly lengthy hearing, the judge sentenced her to 36 months in prison,” Laszewski said.

When Parker was interviewed by police on April 4, she admitted she knew the victim from cheerleading, created a adult ad for her, and drove her to perform sex acts on two separate occasions, for which she pocketed the payment, according to the charging affidavit.

“She really didn’t deny any of the allegations,” Raquet said.

Parker, of Maple Grove, Minn., allegedly contacted the fellow cheerleader after she overheard her talking with girls on the team about trying to make money, the complaint stated.

Parker, who attended Hopkins High School in Minnetonka, Minn., sent texts to her sophomore teammate asking if she would be willing to have sex for money. The victim told Parker that she’d be willing to give men oral sex for money, according to the complaint.

Parker allegedly advised the teen to take photos of herself that were “not too nasty but kinda cute” and to send them to her. Parker told the girl to wear “different outfits” and “show a little skin,” the complaint stated.

Using the photos the victim sent her, Parker created an ad for the 16-year-old on an adult sex website, according to the complaint.

On March 5, Parker took the victim out of school and drove her, along with two other passengers, to an apartment building in Crystal, Minn., where she told the sophomore she was to go to an apartment and give oral sex to the man who was waiting inside, the court document stated.

“You’re up!” Parker allegedly said to the teen.

When the girl returned to the car, she handed Parker the $60 she had made, the complaint stated. Parker then took the cash and drove to a bank where she deposited the money. She did not give any of the money to the victim, according to the allegation.

Parker also took the victim out of school on March 6, calling into the school and pretending to be her mother, the complaint stated. She then drove her to an apartment in Brooklyn Park, Minn., and told her that the customer wanted to have vaginal sex with her, but the girl told Parker she did not want to, the complaint stated.

“You’ll be fine,” Parker allegedly said. “I didn’t drive up here for nothing, and eventually you will need to have sex.”

While the victim went into the apartment and allegedly offered oral sex instead of vaginal sex, the client declined, the complaint stated. The girl then left the apartment and Parker drove her back to school.

When the girl’s mother found out that she had an unexcused absence from school on March 5, she checked the teen’s cell phone, the complaint stated. When she saw text messages between Parker and her daughter revealing that Parker convinced the teen to prostitute herself, she contacted the police.

Authorities uncovered the adult ad featuring the teen in the pictures she had sent to Parker, as well as Parker’s contact information on the page, the complaint stated.

Scouting Young Gay Boyz!

Posted: Sun, Feb 3, 2013 - Updated: Tues. Feb 5, 2013 11:00 AM PST

WASHINGTON, D.C. (WCJB) — President Barack Obama said Sunday that gays should be allowed in the Boy Scouts and women should be allowed in military combat roles, weighing in on two storied American institutions facing proposals to end long-held exclusions. The president's comments in a pre-Super Bowl interview on television come ahead of this week's meeting of the Boy Scouts' national executive board. A proposal to open up the Scouts' membership to gays is expected to be discussed and possibly voted on at the gathering in Texas.

The Boy Scouts emphatically reaffirmed the no-gays policy just seven months ago, but announced last week they were considering changing the stance. Instead of mandatory exclusion of gays, the different religious and civic groups that sponsor Scout units would be able to decide for themselves how to address the issue — either maintaining the exclusion or opening up their membership.

The White House said in a statement last August that Obama opposed the gay ban. Obama, like presidents for the last century, serves as honorary president of the group. The president's comment Sunday was his first since the group announced it was considering a policy change.

"My attitude is that gays and lesbians should have access and opportunity the same way everybody else does in every institution and walk of life," Obama said. "The Scouts are a great institution that are promoting young people and exposing them to opportunities and leadership that will serve people for the rest of their lives. And I think nobody should be barred from that."

United States -- The Boy Scout of America is considering ending its longstanding national membership restrictions based on sexual orientation. Under the change now being discussed, the different religious and civic groups that sponsor Scout units would be able to decide for themselves how to address the issue — either maintaining an exclusion of gays or opening up their membership. Monday's announcement of the possible change comes after years of protests over the policy — including petition campaigns that have prompted some corporations to suspend donations to the Boy Scouts.

Deron Smith, a spokesperson for the Boy Scouts of America, said in a statement that the BSA is discussing potentially removing the national organization's restriction, allowing membership and the selection of scout leaders to be determined by local chartered organizations "consistent with each organization's mission, principles, or religious beliefs. Scouting officials will take up the matter at next week's scheduled national Board meeting.

"The policy change under discussion would allow the religious, civic, or educational organizations that oversee and deliver scouting to determine how to address this issue," Smith said.

The Boys Scouts, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2010, has long excluded both gays and atheists. Smith said a change in the policy toward atheists was not being considered, and that the BSA continued to view "Duty to God" as one of its basic principles. Smith said that the BSA would not dictate a position to units, members, or parents, "[or] require any chartered organization to act in ways inconsistent" with that organization's principles or religious beliefs. Smith said that the change, if implemented, would allow scouts and their parents to choose a local chapter that best suits their needs.

Protests over the no-gays policy gained momentum in 2000, when the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the BSA's right to exclude gays. Scout units lost sponsorships by public schools and other entities that adhered to nondiscrimination policies, and several local Scout councils made public their displeasure with the policy. More recently, amid petition campaigns, shipping giant UPS Inc. and drug-manufacturer Merck announced that they were halting donations from their charitable foundations to the Boy Scouts as long as the no-gays policy was in force.

Also, local Scout officials drew widespread criticism in recent months for ousting Jennifer Tyrrell, a lesbian mom, as a den leader of her son's Cub Scout pack in Ohio and for refusing to approve an Eagle Scout application by Ryan Andresen, a California teen who came out as gay last fall. "An end to this ban will restore dignity to countless families across the country, my own included, who simply wanted to take part in all scouting has to offer," Tyrrell said. "My family loved participating in scouting, and I look forward to the day when we might once again be able to take part."

Many of the protest campaigns, including one seeking Tyrrell's reinstatement, had been waged with help from the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

"The Boy Scouts of America have heard from scouts, corporations and millions of Americans that discriminating against gay scouts and scout leaders is wrong," said Herndon Graddick, GLAAD's president. "Scouting is a valuable institution, and this change will only strengthen its core principles of fairness and respect."

The Scouts had reaffirmed the no-gays policy as recently as last year, and appeared to have strong backing from conservative religious denominations — notably the Mormons, Roman Catholics and Southern Baptists — which sponsor large numbers of Scout units. Under the proposed change, they could continue excluding gays.

Newark, N.J. -- A 27-year-old Newark, N.J., English teacher has been arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child in an allegedly ongoing sexual relationship with a 14-year-old student. Elyse Cromwell (pictured left) is accused of having sex with the boy on multiple occasions over last summer in Jersey City, Hudson County Assistant Prosecutor Gene Rubino told the media sources. According to a criminal complaint obtained by the Jersey Journal, Cromwell "performed prohibited sexual acts" on the male student, who is now 15, "while acting in the position of said victim’s homeroom and English teacher."

Cromwell teaches at the Newark Early College High School, a preparatory school that allows students to earn college credit while in high school. A school district spokeswoman told media sources that Cromwell has been suspended pending an investigation.

On her public Facebook profile, Cromwell has written that her position enabled her to teach English to the same group of students from grades six to twelve. Her profile displays a positive attitude toward her position and other staff members. "I cannot emphasize it enough -- I LOVE MY JOB!" she also wrote.

The teacher's bail was set at $300,000 cash or bond, with a condition that Cromwell must have no contact with anyone under the age of 18.

Earlier this week, a Georgia math teacher was arrested and is accused of having sex with seven high school students.

In December 2012, a Texas high school teacher was arrested after her alleged ongoing affair with an underage student came to light.

PLEASANTON, CA -- A Livermore high school teacher accused of having sex with a 14-year-old former student pleaded not guilty Thursday after 15 of the 24 counts against her were dropped. Marie Johnson, 42, a former math teacher at Granada High School, slouched into the courtroom Thursday with her head down and a faint smile on her face as she spoke quietly with her lawyer.

Georgia -- A ninth-grade math teacher allegedly had sex with seven students, one of whom was below the age of consent. DaNita Wilson, 32 (pictured left) was arrested Tuesday and charged with seven counts of sexual assault. "Some of the (relationships) had been going on for at least one year or longer," said Stacy Carson, assistant special agent for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Wilson is accused of having sex with six students who are over 16-years-old, Georgia's legal age of consent, and one 15-year-old student, Carson explained.

Wilson was suspended with pay from her job at Charlton County High School, pending a formal employment hearing, where the school district's superintendent, John Lairsey, will recommend her termination. "We're just shocked and disappointed," said Lairsey. "And it's just hard to believe. Just disappointed and disheartened that people we put our trust in would violate that trust."

The school district started investigating the claims after receiving a complaint about Wilson, who has worked at the school for a decade. "We received information within the school system," he said. "The main meetings continued on Tuesday. At that point, we got the sheriff's office and GBI involved, and (Wilson) was removed from class before lunch." Lairsey escorted her to police custody just before lunch and handed her a letter that explains her suspension, according to media sources.

Wilson's bond was set at $35,000 — $5,000 for each case of sexual assault. Her court dates have not yet been scheduled.

Police arrested Wentzky on Jan. 8, 2013, for allegedly engaging in sexual intercourse with a 17-year-old male student in 2011 at a Columbia home on several occasions. An arrest warrant says Wentzky admitted to having sexual relations with the student. She is also charged with having sex with a second student. Wentzky taught English at Dreher High, and had been at the school for seven years, according to media reports.

Plain Class Sex!

Florida -- A New Jersey teacher accused of having a sexual relationship with a student was captured Thursday night at a rehab center in South Florida, media sources reports. U.S. Marshals arrested 28-year-old Jennalin Garcia-Calle (pictured left) after she checked herself into a rehab facility. She is charged with sexual assault after allegedly having sexual relations with a 16-year-old male student.

New Jersey prosecutors said Garcia-Calle had sex with the student several times on campus while teaching algebra at Plainfield High School, another source reports. "It was after school, the door was locked, the window was blocked," Union County Prosecutor Theodore Romankow said. "The fact that someone would be that brazen to do this is very troubling."

Investigators said Garcia-Calle fled to South Florida last week after an arrest warrant was issued in her name. Detectives were able to track her down through her cell phone and text messages, according to the same source. "She had told either friends or associates that she was going to South Florida to get help," said U.S. Marshal's spokesperson Barry Golden. "Obviously Ms. Garcia-Calle was aware that these charges were forthcoming. She was aware that she was probably going to be in a lot of trouble and that's when she fled the New Jersey area."

Prosecutors also said Garcia-Calle reached out to the student before fleeing, asking him to get rid of evidence. "He was under intense pressure by the teacher over the course of the weekend to eliminate some of the evidence which he did not do," Romankow said.

The sexual affair came to light when the boy told his parents. The Plainfield School District put Garcia-Calle on immediate administrative leave, pending the criminal investigation.

Garcia-Calle is now being held on $200,000 bail, according to media sources. She will have an extradition hearing on Monday and is expected to be extradited to New Jersey this week.

LAUSD Institutionalized Predation!

Posted: January 23, 2013 at 2:43 PM - Updated: Jan 28 at 11:22 PM PST

LOS ANGELES, CA (WCJB) - Police say that an elementary school teacher accused of fondling as many as 20 of his female students had been accused of similar activity twice in the eight years before, but that the claims were mishandled by a principal. A previous report of sexual misconduct against Pimentel occurred four years ago at the school, and another complaint was made eight years ago at another elementary school where both a female principal and Pimentel had worked, said district Superintendent John Deasy. "My determination was that she was previously mishandling other complaints," Deasy said. "My intent was to fire them." The district never got the chance because both Pimentel and the principal retired after the allegations surfaced last March. "You can't fire someone who doesn't work for you," Deasy said. Police said they will review the principal's failure to report those previous allegations.

Robert Pimentel, 57 (pictured left) is charged with 15 felony counts for allegedly touching students and a co-worker at George La Torre Jr. Elementary School between September 2011 and March 2012. Pimentel appeared in court Thursday and didn't enter a plea. His attorney maintained the 15 felony counts his client is facing are false. "If you look at the record, before this, Pimentel has had a pretty exemplary life," said his lawyer. "He has no arrest record, for anything." It took nearly a year to bring charges against Pimentel and the investigation began just weeks after the arrest of another Los Angeles elementary school teacher, Mark Berndt, who has pleaded not guilty to 23 counts of lewd conduct involving students.

Following that scandal, the district mandated that parents be notified within 72 hours of a report of a suspected abuser, and that each case be reviewed by several human resources staffers to ensure it is reported to the Commission on Teacher Credentialing. District officials vowed to investigate molestation claims and move quickly to remove suspected teachers from classrooms while investigations are ongoing, which apparently occurred in Pimentel's case.

Police were contacted in March by the parents of five students who said Pimentel had touched their children inappropriately. District officials immediately removed him from campus and notifications were sent out. More than 70 interviews were conducted during the police investigation, and Los Angeles police Capt. Fabian Lizarraga said 20 female students are believed to have been victimized. In addition, a female teacher who complained that Pimentel had inappropriately touched her, police said.

The alleged abuse occurred in Pimentel's fourth-grade classroom during school hours and, in some cases, was witnessed by other students, Lizarraga said. The sexual abuse involved fondling over and underneath clothing, he said. "These were some really alert parents knowing their kids and noticing subtle changes in their personalities," Lizarraga said.

LOS ANGELES, CA -- A fourth-grade teacher who worked nearly 40 years in the Los Angeles Unified School District has been arrested on suspicion of sexually abusing 20 students, a year after another veteran teacher accused of molesting nearly two dozen pupils brought national attention to the district and the problem of classroom sex abuse. Court records obtained by the media sources show the allegations covered a period between Sept. 2011 to March 2012.

After a 10-month investigation, eight felony counts of continual sexual abuse and seven counts of lewd acts upon a child were filed Wednesday against Robert Pimentel, of Newport Beach, for abuse that allegedly took place at George De La Torre Jr. Elementary in the Wilmington area, officer Christopher No told media sources. In addition to the 15 felonies, misdemeanor charges are expected for the remaining incidents, No said. Pimentel's bail has been set at $12 million, and an arraignment date hasn't been set. Police and school officials said Pimentel is also suspected of the sexual abuse of one adult, but they did not say what role, if any, that person had at the school. LAPD Capt. Fabian Lizzaraga told sources Pimentel is suspected of inappropriately touching the children over and under their clothing.

Pimentel, 57, left his fourth-grade teaching position last March when allegations arose from several girls who told their parents he inappropriately touched them during school and police opened an investigation.

District officials immediately removed him from campus and parents and state credentialing authorities were informed, school district spokesman Daryl Strickland said. Before the official dismissal process with the Board of Education could begin, Pimentel, who had worked for the district since 1974, retired.

LAUSD Superintendent John Deasy said Parents and guardians will be told of the arrest by letter and phone. Deasy said the school's principal was also immediately removed because the superintendent was "dissatisfied" with how the reported criminal activity was handled.

The Los Angeles teachers' union issued a statement that called the abuse described in the allegations "horrific" and said Pimentel was no longer a member and the union would not be involved in his defense. The police department said the teacher's name was spelled "Pimental," but the school district and public records give the spelling as "Pimentel." Police did not know if he had hired an attorney. A woman who picked up the phone at a number listed for Pimentel hung up when asked about a lawyer or comment from family.

There have been several high-profile recent cases of Los Angeles teachers accused of sexually abusing students. More than 225 parents and students are involved in various claims for damages against the district after Miramonte Elementary School teacher Mark Berndt was arrested a year ago and has pleaded not guilty to 23 counts of lewd conduct.

In December, a jury ordered the district to pay a boy molested by an elementary school teacher $6.9 million -- among the largest awards in the history of the school system. The jury found the district liable for the repeated molestation of the 10-year-old student in 2008 and 2009 by teacher Forrest Stobbe at Queen Anne Elementary School in the city's mid-Wilshire district.

Campus Group Sex!

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A teacher's aide at Amphitheater High School in Tucson is accused of having sexual contact with several students while on campus. Tucson police detectives arrested Clarice Lee, 22 (pictured above, center) on four counts of sexual misconduct with a minor. She was booked into the Pima County Jail.

A Tucson police officer working off duty at the school Tuesday morning was advised by staff members of an alleged incident involving Lee and multiple students. Detectives from the Child Sexual Assault Unit responded to continue the investigation.

According to the detectives, Lee and six male students went to a location on campus during their lunch period on Jan. 18 where Lee allegedly engaged in sexual contact with two 18-year-olds and sexual intercourse with a 16-year-old in front of three other students.

Detectives said one of the students filmed the incident with his cellphone.

Lee has been employed as a teacher's aide for special needs children at Amphi High School since August.

Sex Track Record!

Posted: 8:25 PM EST, Sun January 6, 2013 - Updated 10:25 PM PST, Sun January 6, 2013

Texas (WCJB) -- Hall of Fame track and field coach Bev Kearney (pictured above, center) whose story of recovery from a paralyzing auto accident inspired people around the country, has resigned due to an "intimate consensual relationship" with a University of Texas athlete in 2002, the school announced Saturday night, in a written statement. The relationship began 10 1/2 years ago and ended "at least about eight years ago," the statement said.

The head of the university's legal affairs department said in the written statement that Kearney was a good person who was important to the school. "However, she made this terrible mistake and used unacceptably poor judgment in having this relationship," Patti Ohlendorf said. Ohlendorf called such a relationship "unprofessional and unacceptable."

Ohlendorf said said in an e-mail to media sources Sunday night: "We told Coach Kearney and her attorney that such a relationship crosses the line of trust placed in the head coach for all aspects of the athletic program and the best interests of the student-athletes in the program."

Neither the university nor Kearney, who first told Texas media sources of her decision to step down, identified the athlete. Ohlendorf said the school is not naming the student, citing privacy laws. "We respect her privacy and appreciate her cooperation during our review," Ohlendorf said. The ex-student reported the former relationship to the school in late October, she said, leading to Kearney being placed on leave in November.

Kearney's attorney said Sunday that Kearney was given until Monday at noon to resign or she would be fired. He said the relationship wasn't specifically against school policy, but the rules require someone in a supervisory role to report such a relationship. "It's not a terminable offense," he said. "She was a perfect coach before and prior to the relationship. She had a pristine record. Why anyone would think she is not a suitable coach is mind-boggling to me."

A CNN story in August profiled the coach, who learned to walk again after she was injured in a December 26, 2002, accident that killed two of her friends. Thrown more than 50 feet from an SUV, she suffered extensive spinal injuries that left her partially paralyzed. Kearney said she never doubted her ability to walk again and continued to lead her team from her hospital bed. "When they told me I was paralyzed, it went in one ear and out the next ... because I had to get up and coach," she said.

Track practices were recorded and then played for Kearney on a VCR in her hospital room. "Because I was an intuitive coach ... whatever it is you need to do, I can describe it in a way that you internalize it and you feel it without me having to demonstrate it," she said. "If I can expose you to the best ... it has a great chance of inspiring you to be the best," Kearney explained.

Kearney's teams at Texas won six national championships, the most recent in 2006. She also led the University of Florida Gators to a title in 1992. She was inducted into the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2007.

The paper said her attorney issued a statement, which said in part: "We believe that Ms. Kearney has been subjected to a double standard and has received far harsher punishment than that being given to her male counterparts who have engaged in similar conduct. ... It is a shame that this remarkably talented female African-American coach, who has devoted her life to helping others, is being bullied and scapegoated by the University of Texas."

Ohlendorf denied Sunday that gender played a role in the university's review and said she knows of no other "UT head coach who has entered into such a relationship with a student-athlete on his or her team."

United States (WCJB) -- Federal agents identified 123 sexually exploited children -- some as young as 2 -- and arrested 245 suspected child porn producers in a five-week operation that spanned 46 states and six countries and includes the Bay Area, a federal official announced Thursday.

Of the more than 100 abused children identified in Operation Sunflower, 44 were directly rescued from their abusers and 79 were identified as being exploited by others outside their homes or are now adults who were victimized as children. The arrests -- 37 in California, the most of any state -- were mostly executed during the first week of December, but agents are still working on rescuing and identifying victims.

In the Bay Area, agents procured five indictments for individuals from their early 20s to early 50s. The four arrested were from San Jose, San Leandro, San Francisco and Sonoma County, and one remains on the lam.

Fourteen Fresno-area residents were also arrested and three children from that region rescued, including a 7-year-old girl with disabilities.

"Whenever our investigations reveal the production and distribution of new child pornography online, we will do everything we can to rescue the victim and prosecute the abuser even if takes us years or (going) around the world to do it," said U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton at a Washington D.C. news conference Thursday.

One of the suspects is Michael Lindsay, 53, of San Jose, arrested Nov. 8 at San Francisco International Airport on suspicion of engaging in child sex tourism. He was boarding a flight to Manila, Philippines. Two months earlier, Lindsay returned from a trip to the Philippines and that country issued a criminal complaint alleging he had sexual contact with a 13-year-old girl.

Agents continue to search for additional victims, as evidence suggests Lindsay had sexual contact with additional children, according to ICE.

Of the 123 victims (70 female, 53 male) identified in the operation, five were under the age of 3; nine were 4 to 6; 21 were 7 to 9; 11 were ages 10 to 12; 38 were 13 to 15; and 15 were ages 16 to 17. Twenty-four victims were found to be adults now.

ICE's Homeland Security Investigations agents dubbed the worldwide investigation "Operation Sunflower" to commemorate the anniversary of a successful operation that rescued an 11-year-old Kansas girl from rape. It was the agency's first case in their new Victim Identification Program.

In the 2011 case, Danish police alerted American authorities to a 16-year-old boy soliciting advice on a pedophile chat room and posting images of the 11-year-old girl, saying he planned to rape her. Agents had no idea where the suspect and victim were.

Working with high-tech video equipment, law enforcement was able to extrapolate a sunflower-shaped road sign in a video from a moving car that the suspect posted. The yellow freeway sign was determined to be unique to Kansas.

For days, pairs of ICE agents drove the Kansas freeways before finding the sign on a rural freeway. From there, with the help of local police, they identified a swimming pool featured in another video and then tracked down the victim before any crime was committed. Last fiscal year, 292 victims were identified or rescued from ICE investigations and 1,655 child predators were arrested.

"We are defending the defenseless," Morton said. Morton asked for the public's help in identifying three men and a woman in three unsolved Operation Sunflower cases. In the first case, investigators believe the photographs were taken about 11 years ago with an adult man and woman sexually molesting a girl who looks to be about 13 years old. Agents believe the images may have been taken in Los Angeles, or possibly the San Fernando Valley area.

The other two cases involve white male adult suspects abusing pre-pubescent toddlers. Their whereabouts are unknown.

BOISE, Idaho (WCJB) - An Idaho woman remains jailed Monday for allegedly providing alcohol to and having sexual contact with four 15-year-old boys. Media sources reported that 35-year-old Courtney Reschke (pictured left) appeared in court on two counts each of felony injury to a child and felony lewd conduct. She remains jailed on $250,000 bail.

Prosecutors said Reschke had several sexual encounters with friends of her oldest child at her home since the start of the school year. Ada County Deputy Prosecutor Jean Fischer said more charges could be filed.

Reschke's public defender sought her release without bond so she could keep her job and care for her children. District Judge Cathleen MacGregor Irby said Reschke's bond conditions include no contact with anyone under the age of 18, including her children.
