Columbus, OH (NOV. 29, 2016) ~ USA -- Knife weilding suspect Abdul Razak Ali Artan was almost immediately shot by OSU police officer Alan Horujko. Horujko was immediately hailed as a hero by mainstream media. Horujko is perhaps a hero for ending a serious threat. However, it appears that mainstream media is not telling the entire story. Most significantly, several of the students injured during the attack were injured by Horujko’s poor marksmanship, not by Artan’s knife.

OAKLAND, Calif. -- (WCJB) ~ United States California officials fear dozens may have died in a massive fire that swept through an Oakland warehouse where a concert was taking place Friday night. Nine people have been confirmed dead, and dozens of others remain missing, officials said. In a news conference Saturday, authorities said they expected the death toll to rise, but they did not know by how much. “We’re expecting the worst — maybe a couple dozen victims here,” Sgt. Ray Kelly, spokesman for the Alameda County Sheriff’s Office, told reporters. “We did not have a lot of victims go to the hospital,” Kelly said. “It appears that people either made it out, or they didn’t make it out.”

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)


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. The car belonged to a woman named Lakeya Hicks, who had the paper tags because she had recently purchased the vehicle. Hicks’ tags weren’t expired, and a check on her license came up clean. However, the cops didn’t let her go. (Click here for video)

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.

Brooklyn, NY -- A newly-released surveillance video (Click here for video) contradicts an undercover NYPD police officer who arrested four people in Brooklyn for allegedly trying to rob him on Dec. 26, 2015, according to a defense lawyer. Jean Scott, 33; Peterson Duplan, 28; Ricardi Joseph, 29; and Samantha Dabel, 24, said that they were approached by a man who tried to buy drugs from them at a hardware store. The undercover cop was identified as Winston McDonald, who testified in court that Duplan allegedly flashed a switchblade at him outside of the store, and said, "Give me your money or I will stab you," according to court papers.

Forth Worth, TX -- The mother of ‘affluenza’ teen Ethan Couch was ordered released from a Tarrant County jail cell after a bond hearing this afternoon. She may be leaving the jail soon. Judge Wayne Salvant ordered her bond reduced to $75,000 with several conditions. The conditions include weekly visits with the Community Supervisions and Corrections Department of Tarrant County. She is also not to consume alcoholic beverages or use social media. “Let’s look at it for what it is, I understand everyone is concerned and there is outrage in the community… but as a judge I have to look at the law,” said Judge Salvant. Couch and her lawyers were present at a 2 p.m. bond hearing at the Tarrant County Justice Center hoping to have her bond reduced. It was originally set at $1 million since she was charged with Hindering Apprehension of a Felon. (Click here for video)

Salt Lake City, Utah -- Exactly one year after a man was shot and killed during an altercation with a Salt Lake City Police Department officer, a former Davis County Sheriff says new video (Click here for video)footage indicates the officer's actions may not have been justified.

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)

Description: (Bottom of Page) Florida -- On Monday (March 7, 2016) in a Florida courtroom, something happened in this nation's history that has never occurred before: A celebrity went to trial against a news organization over the publishing of a sex tape.

As attorneys for Hulk Hogan and Gawker took turns delivering their opening statements, the jury heard about their generational opportunity to probe what's newsworthy in a country that's enormously proud of its abilities to speak freely in an era when the privacy of its citizens is more at risk than ever.

Los Angeles, CA -- Rodney King's daughter was just 7 when her father was beaten bloody by Los Angeles Police officers in 1991. She was eating breakfast when it came on the morning news. The video footage showed LAPD officers kicking and hitting her unarmed father dozens of times with batons. It gave her nightmares for years.


Lora King, 32, stood shoulder to shoulder with about a dozen LAPD officers Thursday. She hugged many of them. She was there to join them in a talk to young people who have had their own run-ins with police. She said a whole police department can't be judged by the actions of a few.

Atlanta, GA (Published on Aug 13, 2013) -- Kathryn Johnston was an elderly Atlanta, Georgia, woman who was shot by undercover police officers in her home on Neal Street in northwest Atlanta on November 21, 2006, where she had lived for 17 years. Three officers, Arthur Tesler, Jason R. Smith and Gregg Junnier, entered her home in what was later described as a 'botched' drug raid. Officers cut off burglar bars and broke down her door using a no-knock warrant. Police said Johnston fired at them and they fired in response; she fired one shot out the door over the officers' heads and they fired 39 shots, five or six of which hit her. None of the officers was injured by her gunfire, but Johnston was killed by the officers. Police injuries were later attributed to "friendly fire" from each other's weapons.

Houston, Texas -- Alexandria Vera, 24, is the Texas middle school teacher who was impregnated by a 13-year-old student. Vera was arrested in June. Police said Vera had sex with her 8th grade English student ‘on almost a daily basis.’ The former eighth-grade English teacher taught at Stovall Middle School in Houston. She told police that she fell in love with one of her students after the two began a relationship through Instagram messages. Vera said that the boy’s family was supportive of the affair.

Vera told police that she met the boy during summer school in 2015. She said she initially resisted the boy’s advances until sometime last fall. At this time she agreed to hang out with her student. Prosecutors say Vera and the teen had sex almost every day for nine months. She told investigators that they love each other. Vera told her neighbors that the boy was her brother during the relationship. The boy’s parents had known of the relationship since October of last year. Vera told police they accepted it.


A police investigation began earlier this year after the school principal received a tip about Vera. She told police that she had gotten pregnant. Vera told police she had an abortion after Child Protective Services questioned her about the relationship in February. The boy is now 14-years-old. He also admitted to the sexual relationship. He is in foster care and will remain there at least until August. The boy’s mother also was investigated by Child Protective Services.

Vera was initially charged with continuous sexual assault of a child. Continuous sexual assault of a child carries a maximum punishment of life in prison. Vera pleaded guilty on Wednesday. She pleaded guilty to aggravated sexual assault of a child. She could face up to 30 years in prison. The plea of guilt to the lesser charge capped her sentence at 30 years. She is also eligible for deferred adjudication. If the court grants deferred adjudication, she will be placed on probation. Vera will have not have felony on her record if she successfully completes the terms. Vera’s attorney said: “We’re very much hoping for deferred adjudication.” Vera has been free on a $100,000 bail and has been wearing a GPS ankle monitor. She’s scheduled for a sentencing hearing in January.

OAKLAND, CA (WCJB) -- On Thursday, Oct. 21, 2016, Oakland police announced the arrest of an officer. The officer has been charged after he was arrested a day earlier in connection with an alleged involvement with a prostitute. Ryan Walterhouse, 26, was charged with two felony counts of conspiracy to obstruct justice and a misdemeanor charge of engaging in prostitution. Walterhouse was arrested Wednesday in downtown Oakland about 9 p.m. as he arrived for work. Walterhouse confessed to giving a sex worker information on covert operations. Officer Walterhouse was booked on Thursday of last week at the Glenn Dyer Jail in Oakland. He posted $20,000 bail within three hours of his booking. Walterhouse was arraigned Friday and pleaded not guilty on all counts.

Walterhouse is accused of conspiring with a prostitute. He allegedly had a relationship with the prostitute for over six months. He warned her when fellow police officers would be out so she wouldn’t get busted for prostitution. He is accused of warning the woman twice last week. He is also accused of calling her and texting her during times when undercover stings to stop prostitution were in progress. Court documents show that on October 13, he allegedly called an “unidentified woman” and said, “You might want to call it an early night tonight. You might want to stick to the online thing right now.” He also allegedly texted the woman with messages warnings such as, “I’ll let you know when n to…not yet, they still out, probably after 12.”

Mayor Libby Schaaf said during a press conference at Oakland police headquarters: "It is incredibly disturbing that in light of what happened this summer, any officer could think that it was at all acceptable to engage in this type of behavior and further sully the reputation of this department that has been working so hard." In a written statement released Thursday morning, the department said: "The Oakland Police Department takes all allegations of misconduct involving our employees seriously. We hold all of our employees to a high level of ethical and professional accountability and will not tolerate criminal behavior. Ensuring internal investigations are swift, fair and objective is our priority."

Deputy Chief John Lois said the alleged crimes occurred both on-duty, as well as, off-duty. Oakland Officer Omega Crum noticed some of Walterhouse’s alleged conspiracies. Officer Crum swore in an affidavit that Officer Walterhouse’s actions put other officers in harm’s way. Officials said they believe the incident does not extend beyond Walterhouse. They also said Walterhouse's arrest is not connected to a sex scandal that rocked five Bay Area law enforcement agencies. Celeste Guap (an alias used by the woman at the center of the scandal and misconduct allegations) claims she had sex with two dozen current and former officers. Walterhouse was arraigned at the same time on Friday as two other Oakland Police who were arraigned on their sex scandal charges. They also have pleaded not guilty to all charges.

Vassar Inappropriately!

POSTED: 6:56 AM, OCTOBER 14, 2016 ~ UPDATED: 11:46PM, OCTOBER 15, 2016 PDT


PONCA CITY, Okla. – Matthew Vassar, 45, is now an ex-Oklahoma police officer. Vassar has been arrested for allegedly molesting a 12-year-old girl. Investigators arrested Vassar in Ponca City on Thursday evening for lewd acts with a child. A probable cause affidavit claims that Vassar resigned on Thursday from the Perry Police Department. Vassar resigned after the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigations (OSBI) made multiple attempts to contact him for an interview.

Investigators with the OSBI began investigating the allegations against Vassar on Oct. 11, 2016. The Ponca City Police Department also began investigating Vassar. The allegations came to light after the alleged victim told a friend that Vassar had been inappropriately touching her for the past several years. A family member of the friend called the victim’s mother to tell her about the alleged abuse. The victim’s mother then immediately called police.


An arrest warrant alleges claims made by the victim during an interview with officials. The victim said that she “didn’t know what Vassar was doing to her was wrong. As [the victim] got older[,] she watched a video about puberty and sex at school.

Montgomery, Alabama -- Montgomery, Alabama police officer Deonte Lashawn Hamner, 27, is accused of holding a gun to a man’s head and forcing him to perform oral sex on him during a traffic stop. The felony sex crime arrest report was released last week. Investigators said Hamner was on-duty when he pulled the victim over. He then pulled his department issued firearm on the victim and forced him to perform oral sex at gunpoint. Officer Hamner made “a deal” with the victim, in exchange for not shooting him in the head. The victim later contacted the Montgomery police.

The arrest report indicates the incident took place on June 9 between 8 p.m. and 10 p.m. Montgomery Police Department began an investigating against one of their own after the victim made allegations against Hamner. Officer Hamner claimed there was a disturbance and he responded, making contact with the victim. MPD then arrested one of their own after conducting an investigation. Officer Hamner then traded his badge for an orange jump suit. Officer Hammer’s bond was set at $60,000.

The southern Alabama police department refuses to say where the alleged sexual assault took place. The Montgomery Police Department also refused to verify if there was even a noise complaint called in. This implies Officer Hamner may not have received a call at all and was simply abusing his position to prey on the victim. In spite of the current charges against him, Montgomery PD placed Hamner on paid administrative leave. He graduated from the police academy in 2014. Hamner was with the Montgomery Police Department for just over two years.

Alabama law defines the Class A charge, that could land Hamner anywhere between 10-99 years in prison, as Sodomy in the first degree:

(a) A person commits the crime of sodomy in the first degree if:

(1) He engages in deviate sexual intercourse with another person by forcible compulsion; or

(2) He engages in deviate sexual intercourse with a person who is incapable of consent by reason of being

physically helpless or mentally incapacitated; or

(3) He, being 16 years old or older, engages in deviate sexual intercourse with a person who is less than

12 years old.

(b) Sodomy in the first degree is a Class A felony.

HAYWARD, CA (WCJB) – Brian Bunton, 40, is one of five Oakland police officers charged in a sex scandal. Bunton graduated from the police academy last year. It is his second career. He has a wife and children. The child-sex scandal is centered around Jasmine Abuslin. Abuslin is the former sex worker who previously identified herself by the name “Celeste Guap.” She claims she slept with 30 Bay Area police officers. Abuslin says she had sex with four of the officers before she turned 18. Abuslin's claims triggered internal affairs investigations at several Bay Area law enforcement agencies.

Bunton pleaded not guilty Friday to a felony obstruction charge. He also pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor prostitution charge. Bunton is accused of warning Abuslin to stay away from an intersection known for prostitution because of an ongoing police operation. Bunton allegedly provided Abuslin information about an undercover sting happening on East 14th Street in Oakland during a specific evening. The victim said Bunton received sex in exchange for the information.

Bunton did not comment to reporters after the hearing. His lawyer told local media outlets that his client has expressed remorse and took responsibility for some of the actions. The attorney would not say what actions he took responsibility for. The attorney continued, “He understands there are consequences and those are going on right now.” Bunton will have to surrender at Santa Rita Jail by Monday. He is expected to pay the bail of $12,500 that was set by the judge Friday. Bunton’s attorney said he is still employed by the Oakland Police Department, since he hasn’t been convicted of any crime. The city of Oakland would not say if Bunton is currently patrolling the streets or on paid leave.

Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’Malley previously filed criminal charges against the first two of the seven police officers she plans to prosecute in the case.

Former Livermore police officer Dan Black, 49, is charged with two counts of engaging in prostitution: two counts of performing lewd acts; and one count of giving alcohol to a person under 21. The crimes allegedly occurred in Berkeley in April after Black bought dinner for the woman, according to the charges. Black resigned his post.

Retired Oakland police officer Leroy Johnson is charged with failing to report suspected child abuse in September 2015. The teenager told him in a Facebook message that she had engaged in sex with other Oakland officers and was underage in some of the encounters. Abuslin was in Puerto Rico with her mother at the time. According to the complaint Johnson was a family friend of both mother and daughter. Abuslin's mother is an Oakland police dispatcher.

The complaint signed by Deputy District Attorney Sabrina Farrell alleges that after she sent Johnson the message, he wrote back, “Tell me you were and (sic) adult,” and she responded, “I’d be lying.” As an officer, Johnson had a mandatory duty to report suspected child abuse. Both Black and Johnson are scheduled to be arraigned in Superior Court on Oct. 4. The crimes they are accused of are misdemeanors.

Oakland, CA -- Ex-Livermore police officer Dan Black is one of seven East Bay law enforcement officers being charged in connection with the child-sex scandal. Black has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of engaging in an act of prostitution. He is charged with two additional misdemeanors of engaging in a lewd act in a public place. Black claims he is "still employed with the Livermore PD." However, he was on administrative leave for several months, before resigning.


Black spoke via Facebook Messenger to media sources. He said "No way," did he think he'd be charged in the case. He insisted that all he did was have consensual sex with another adult in his RV in a restaurant parking lot. Black says that he did not know the child was a prostitute. He also says did not know about her encounters with other police officers. He says he thought she was a nanny. He admits, though, that he offered to buy her dinner. He claims he picked her up in his RV and took her to Spenger's Grotto in Berkeley. He said they dined and then spent the night in the RV in the parking lot.

The child claims that Black told her when they met: "I don't pay for sex but I will buy you dinner." However, Black says that was taken out of context. He also joked: "We all pay for it; diamonds; gifts; and marriage." He told media sources: "Sex and prostitution are two very different things. One is legal and one is not." Alameda County DA Nancy O'Malley told media sources that it was still paying for sex, regardless of how Black spins it. "It doesn't have to be money. It can be food. I mean we have children on the street who are homeless who are engaging in commercial sex because they don't have food."

Several other officers, including unnamed officers with the Oakland Police Department, have been charged with sexual exploitation, inappropriate sexual conduct with a minor, and obstruction of justice.

Giovanni Loverde and former Contra Costa Deputy Ricardo Perez face felony oral copulation with a minor. The offenses are punishable by up to three years in jail. Alameda County prosecutors promised to charge seven officers. So far five officers have been charged.

Riverdale, GA -- According to a Riverdale Police report, a woman was turned over to Officer J. Robinson for transport from the Riverdale Police Department to the Clayton County Jail on August 7 after being arrested for falsely reporting a crime. Investigators said it was during that transport that Robinson allegedly raped the woman behind an empty building on Tara Blvd.

During a preliminary hearing Tuesday, new details of the encounter between the Jonesboro man and the woman in his custody were revealed.

A GBI special agent investigating the rape allegations told the Clayton County courtroom the female told him what happened during the ride from the Riverdale Police Department to the county jail. He said she told him that, during the transport, Robinson stopped and parked near a building on Tara Boulevard, where she claimed she was forced to have sex with him. The woman said she was handcuffed during the ordeal, and felt threatened and intimidated by Robinson.

Robinson, when questioned, at first denied any stops along the transport. GBI Special Agent Agie George says that when special agents pressed him about the unusually long time it took to transport the inmate, Robinson changed his story: "His head slumped, he looked disappointed," Agent George testified. That's when Robinson told investigators they did have sex, but that the inmate came on to him.

Once at the jail, the inmate "adamantly asked" intake deputies to not wash her clothing as she switched into a jail jumpsuit. Her clothing was eventually entered as evidence along with a rape kit when she went to authorities following her release from jail.

Riverdale Police say Robinson had only been with the department for five months when the incident occurred. His former place of employment, according to investigators, was the same tire shop where the alleged attack happened.

OAKLAND, Calif. (WCJB) -- Alameda County D.A., Nancy O'Malley, announced that criminal charges will be filed against seven officers in the sex scandal rocking several East Bay police departments. Nancy O'Malley says that five of these officers are from the Oakland Police Department. The five Oakland PD officers have been identified as officers: Brian Bunton; Warit Utappa; resigned Officer Tyrell Smith; and retired Officer Leroy Johnson. Officer Dan Black of the Livermore Police Department and Contra Costa County Sheriff Deputy Ricardo Perez also face criminal charges.

Four of the Oakland PD officers were terminated. The other departments have also had resignations and suspensions. On Thursday, the Livermore officer resigned. All of the officers are alleged to have been sexually involved with a woman known as Celeste Guap, age 19. Guap (pictured above, center) is a self-described prostitute. She says she slept with multiple officers when she was underage. Richmond police sent her to a rehab center in Florida. She was arrested last week for assault.

O'Malley said that more charges could be possible in other counties. However, she said she cannot charge some of the Oakland police officers who had contact with Guap in Contra Costa County. O'Malley says she is in contact with District Attorneys in Contra Costa County, San Francisco County and San Joaquin County regarding their officers.

Stuart, Florida -- The recent arrest of Celeste Guap, 19 (pictured above, center) smells fishy. Guap is a resident of Richmond, California. She is the daughter of an Oakland police dispatcher. Guap is the California woman who claims she had sex with more than two dozen cops. She claims to have had sex with some officers while she was still under 18. The sex was in exchange for cash or protection from prostitution stings. Guap has been central to the sex scandal involving officers from at least five Bay-Area police agencies. The Bay-Area police agencies include Oakland, Richmond, and San Francisco. The first officer she claims to have been involved with wound up killing himself last fall. The officer's wife also allegedly committed suicide.



Richmond Police Officer Terrance Jackson. Jackson is alleged to have had a sexual relationship with sexually exploited teen Celeste Guap.

Something just doesn't sit right about Guap's arrest. Guap is now being held in a southeast-Florida jail. Last Friday Guap checked into a residential detox facility in Stuart, Florida. Her mother described Guap as a heroin addict. Guap and her mother both told media sources that the drug-treatment was funded through the Richmond Police Department (RPD). Three days after arriving, Guap was arrested. She is in the Martin County Jail facing felony charges for aggravated battery. Guap's bail was set at $300,000. Any investigation into California cops' involvement with Guap may now be hindered by the Florida felony-battery case.


The allegation that RPD funded the detox has raised eyebrows among people following the investigation. Guap's prostitution claims include RPD officers. Guap told media sources that the treatment money came from RPD's victim's compensation fund. According to Guap: "They said it was a paid vacation, ... to consider it a paid vacation." RPD chief of staff, Lieutenant Felix Tan, would not confirm or deny whether the agency was involved with Guap's treatment. He stated: "It would be irresponsible and inappropriate for any public agency to comment on anyone's rehabilitation progress. We are not commenting." A California civil-rights attorney is leading a call for the state to take over the investigation from individual agencies involved. The attorney said: "I'm not saying rehab is a bad idea, but there are rehab programs here.

Guap's alleged victim is a detox-center security guard named Joseph Sanders. He claimed Guap was getting (verbally) upset with a facility care staffer. He said he and two other security guards entered the room. At that point, Guap tried to pull a safe off of the room's countertop. "[W]hen the security officers intervened, [Guap] began resisting, starting a physical altercation." The arrest affidavit says Guap began "screaming at the employees then lunged at one of the female security officers. Sanders attempted to restrain Guap. At this point she bit his right forearm.

Guap told police Monday that she did not remember anything about the incident that led to her arrest. Guap "stated she blacks out when she gets angry." Guap then refused to talk to police. She was handcuffed and placed in the back of a squad car. She slipped out of the handcuffs. Guap then began to repeatedly bang her head against the window. She was then placed in a police hobble. Security-camera footage of the altercation allegedly backs up Sanders report, ...except for the biting. The biting was not caught on video. Officer Michael Trent McCarthy reported in Guap's arrest affidavit that he observed "teeth marks" on Sanders' arm. He mentions no bruising or bleeding.

Guap's mother wonders why a detox and recovery center would call the police on someone for acting-out in the throes of drug withdrawal. It's a fair question. An aggravated battery charge for this incident also might seem harsh. The charge is supposedly reserved for an assault involving a deadly weapon, or attacks that cause: "great bodily harm; permanent disability; or permanent disfigurement."

Public Information Officer Christine Weiss said the sheriff's office has not yet seen the Security-camera footage. However, according to Weiss, aggravated battery is the standard charge in cases that involve biting. Weiss also said that the $300,000 bond was nothing unusual. "We have in Martin County very high bonds." Weiss added that the department was "not even aware" of Guap's situation in California until it began receiving calls from California media today.

RICHMOND, CA — The RYSE Youth Center demanded that police Chief Allwyn Brown remove two police officers from school campuses. The calls came amid allegations the pair and three other officers had sex with Celeste Guap, 19 (pictured above, center). Guap used to attend a Richmond city high school. She is at the center of a widening police sex scandal. Both officers work on school campuses. Officer Jerred Tong works at Lovonya DeJean Middle School. Officer Terrance Jackson has worked at De Anza High. Guap said he even detained her a few years ago for cutting class.


All three of the Richmond officers named by Guap have assignments to work with youths. Lt. Andre Hill is a Richmond police spokesman. He was the RYSE center’s contact at the department. Tong is a youth adviser in the department’s police Explorers program. Tong initiated a text conversation with Guap on Monday morning, April 11, 2016. The officer asks if he could stop to visit Guap on his way from downtown to “DA” (apparently referring to De Anza High School). The city’s website shows Tong worked morning weekday hours during the school year.

The Youth Center demanded that Chief Brown reassign the two officers, or place them and the other officers on leave while authorities investigate the claims.

Montville, OH — Carl Kannenberg, 34 (pictured above, center) is a Montville Township, Ohio, police officer and Wayne County probation officer. was charged with raping a 7-year-old girl while she was a patient at University Hospital in February. A Cuyahoga County grand jury indicted Kannenberg with two counts of rape, two counts of gross sexual imposition, and two counts of kidnapping.

According to the indictment, the former law enforcement officer “is charged with committing anal penetration and with inappropriate sexual contact” for sexual assaults, which the indictment syas occurred multiple times. Three of the sexual assaults occurred at the hospital (while his young victim wore a hospital gown) Kannenberg was visiting another patient at the time. Another incident happened prior to that one, but at a separate and unnamed location. No further details were available regarding the sexual assault that occurred prior to the multiple incidents at the hospital.

Joe Frolik is spokesman for the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office. He told media sources that Kannenberg was not working for University Hospital at the time of those sexual assaults. However, he had been visiting another patient. Frolik added that hospital personnel helped report the incidents to police. Media sources tried to contact officials from the Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office. However, neither Frolik nor the appropriate officials with Wayne County could be reached for comment Saturday. University Hospitals Spokeswoman Alicia Reale released a statement. She refused to comment directly on the case in question. She said: “Patient safety is our highest priority. UH takes the safety of our patients very seriously. We are continually refining and strengthening our protocols to maintain a safe environment for our patients and their families.”

Inexplicably, Kannenberg was arrested on July 12, 2016. He has since been released pending arraignment on August 17, 2016.
His charges are explicitly brutal: violent in nature; and forcibly committed against such a young child; in the further vulnerable position of being a hospital patient. Kannenberg’s freedom until his next court date defies both reason and any possible sense of safety or justice for his victim. One has to wonder whether Kannenberg’s status as a law enforcement officer played a role in his being able to roam freely until arraignment. He roams freely, despite being charged with the rape of an innocent 7-year-old child.

Frolik stated Kannenberg left the Montville police department in 2015. He then served as a Wayne County probation officer from August 2015 until March this year. Kannenberg’s social media profile still lists him currently employed in the Wayne County Municipal Court as a Community Service Coordinator. It also says that he has been in law enforcement for four years in total.

Police sexual misconduct is very common. More than 1,000 officers have had their licenses revoked in just the last six years for sexual assault. Nearly half of the sexual assaults involved underage victims. These incidents are not uncommon. They are more common when children choose to be around police through the police explorer program(s).

•» Last month, former Canterbury Police Chief John Laroche was charged with sexually assaulting a former member of the Boscawen Police Explorers. His alleged victim was a 16-year-old girl.

•» Last year, former Trumball police officer William Ruscoe began a drastically reduced 30-month prison sentence for handcuffing and raping a teenage girl in his home. His victim was an explorer.

•» Trever Blackwell, 30, was jailed in September 2014 for raping a 15-year-old girl while she was in the department’s Explorer program.

•» Before that incident, several sex charges were filed against a former Irwindale police officer who allegedly molested a 14-year-old Explorer Scout.

Whitefield, Maine -- Kenneth L. Hatch III, 46 (pictured above, center) of Whitefield, is a veteran Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office deputy. Hatch joined the sheriff’s office in 1999. He was named its Deputy of the Year in April 2015. Hatch was first arrested in June. At this time he was charged with two counts of sexual abuse allegedly against one girl. Hatch was indicted Tuesday on 21 counts related to alleged sexual assaults against three girls over the past 17 years. The Knox County grand jury indicted Hatch on 10 counts of sexual abuse of a minor: three counts of unlawful sexual contact; and eight counts of aggravated furnishing of marijuana in connection with alleged incidents against three victims. The drug counts allege that he provided marijuana to two of the alleged victims.

The incidents for which Hatch was indicted date back as far as September 1999. One girl was younger than 14 years old at the time of the oldest alleged sexual assault. The offenses against another girl, who was 14 or 15 years old, occurred in 2001 and 2002, according to the indictments. The sexual assaults against the third victim resulted in Hatch’s arrest in June. The sexual assaults against the third victim first occurred in 2004 when she was 6. The indictments then allege that Hatch sexually assaulted the same girl and provided her marijuana in 2013 and 2014, when she was 14 and 15.

Detective Peter Lizanecz of the Maine attorney general’s office filed an affidavit in June in Wiscasset Unified Criminal Court. He wrote that the teen told Augusta police in May that when she was 14 years old, Hatch offered her marijuana in exchange for sex in the back seat of his cruiser. She also alleged that Hatch gave her cigarettes, alcohol, money and more marijuana during other sexual assaults in the cruiser during the next two to three years. The teen allegedly told an officer that on Sept. 21, 2013, Hatch gave her marijuana from a plastic bag marked “EVIDENCE” that matched evidence bags that Brackett confirmed were used by the sheriff’s office.

Assistant Attorney General John Risler the case to the grand jury. The cases were presented to the Knox County grand jury by the state attorney general’s office to avoid any appearance of a conflict. Hatch works extensively with the district attorney’s office. Sheriff Todd Brackett placed Hatch on paid administrative leave when the officer was arrested in June pending further investigation. A telephone message left early Tuesday afternoon seeking comment from the sheriff was not immediately returned.

Hatch was released from jail in June on $50,000 unsecured bail. The conditions of release stipulate that he have no contact with the alleged victim or with girls younger than 16 years old. He also is prohibited from using or possessing alcohol, drugs or dangerous weapons.

Stockton, California -- Anthony Ray Silva is the mayor of Stockton, California. Silva has a history of bizarre, outlandish and questionable behavior. The website that he manages states that he is “a little ‘rough around the edges.’ ” Many people who personally know him say this is an understatement. Stockton’s NAACP and Black Women Organized for Political Action hosted a mayoral candidate debate on April 21, 2016. During the debate Silva said he was the city’s first black mayor. Silva is white Hispanic. The next day he clarified his statement to media sources. He said: “I think I said, I’m not African American, but I’m pretty darn close. Quite frankly, I could be determined to be the first African American mayor of Stockton.” Silva is up for reelection in November.

2015: A gun that belonged to Silva turned up as the weapon in the slaying of 13-year-old Rayshawn “Ray Ray” Harris. Harris was shot to death in his driveway in February of that year. It turned out that the .40-caliber semiautomatic pistol had been stolen from Silva’s home during a burglary. However, the mayor did not report the gun missing until a month after Harris was killed.

2014: Silva was handcuffed after a fight broke out in a limousine. The fight caused $7,000 to $10,000 worth of damage to the car. A man known as Curtis Mitchell was arrested for the fight. Mitchell said Silva inappropriately touched his fiancée. Silva denied the claim. The mayor was never arrested. However, the limousine’s driver filed a civil lawsuit against him and the other passengers in May.


Many Stocktonians viewed these actions as the erratic, questionable behavior in the life of an eccentric mayor. However, what happened Thursday cannot simply be viewed as erratic, or questionable behavior. Mayor Silva was arrested. Clad in a black T-shirt, shorts, white socks, sandals and handcuffs, Silva was guided into a police cruiser. Mayor Silva was charged with a felony on Thursday, August 4, 2016. He is accused of secretly recording confidential communications without consent. He is also charged with three misdemeanor charges: contributing to the delinquency of a minor; providing alcohol to people under 21; and child endangerment. He posted $20,000 bail and was released the same day.


The allegations came as a bit of a shocker. Silva has served as the chief executive of the Boys and Girls Club of Stockton. He served as president of the Stockton Unified Board of Education. He also served as aquatic program director for the San Joaquin County Human Service Agency. There and according to his website, he claims he “help[ed] kids in economically disadvantaged parts of Stockton get access to swimming lessons and pools.” He also coached high school water polo for several years.


Finally, Silva operates the Silver Lake Camp. The place is a camp for disadvantaged youth. It was at this camp that police arrested Silva for providing alcohol to minors. He then proceeded to play a game of strip poker with several of young people there. One was a 16-year-old boy. Police said he filmed the game against their will. Silva allegedly installed hidden cameras in his bedroom and at the Stockton Kids Club. Silva's attorney dismissed the charges. He claims they were a form of political assassination intended to ensure Silva “won’t have enough time to clear his name before the election.” However, the investigation into Silva's conduct with children began long before now.

Federal officers confiscated his cellphone and two of his laptop computers in October of 2015. The FBI turned the details of the investigation over to the Amador County District Attorney’s Office on July 26, 2016. Police found 23 photographs and four video clips that were recorded between Aug. 3 and Aug. 9, 2015, at the Silver Lake Camp. One of the video clips was taken in Silva’s bedroom at the camp. The video shows him playing strip poker with several of the camp’s counselors, including one who was 16 years old. Silva allegedly gave alcohol to the participants of the game. He also provided alcohol to other underage counselors at the camp.

Prosecutors alleged in a statement: “In one of the video clips, it appeared that moments after the video began, the phone was set down, darkening the camera lens and thus only containing audio. That clip contains audio of a conversation between participants involved in a strip poker game that occurred in Silva’s bedroom. The conversation between the participants indicated that they were naked. One of the participants was a 16-year-old male. The audio of the surreptitious recording clearly indicates that the participants did not want to be recorded.”

When asked if Silva had played strip poker with young people at the camp, his attorney said: “I highly doubt it.” He added: “I can’t wait to fight them in court, so we can expose the epidemic of kids at summer camp playing strip poker.” Silva’s court date is Aug. 18. 2016. If convicted, he could serve up to three years in prison.

STOCKTON, CA — Stockton Mayor, Anthony Ray Silva's gun was used in the unsolved 2015 killing of 13-year-old Rayshawn “Ray Ray” Harris. The San Joaquin District Attorney’s Office says Anthony Silva has refused to cooperate with investigators seeking information about the mayor’s recovered gun. Prosecutor's say for more than two weeks Silva has refused to cooperate in the investigation. Supervising Deputy District Attorney Robert Himelblau said his office has not spoken to Silva about the gun’s role in the Harris homicide.

Himelblau also told media sources on Tuesday that Silva knew his legally registered handgun was missing. Himelblau said Silva even spoke about it informally with an undisclosed member of the Stockton Police Department. This conversation occurred weeks before Harris’ killing. A police spokesman said Tuesday night that the undisclosed member of the department was Chief Eric Jones. Jones urged the mayor to make an official report “immediately.” Officer Joe Silva is the spokesman for Stockton police. He revealed that the mayor spoke to Stockton’s police chief about his missing gun weeks before Harris was shot to death.

On Tuesday night, Joe Silva (who is not related to the mayor) said the conversation began with Anthony Silva asking Jones how to report a missing gun. The chief asked: "‘Where is it missing from?’" The mayor responded: "‘From my residence in the county.’" The chief said: "‘That’s the sheriff’s jurisdiction, and you need to report it to the Sheriff’s Department and I can help facilitate that.’" The mayor declined saying, "'he’d take care of it himself.'" However, records show Silva did not officially report the gun as missing until March 22, 2015. He told the San Joaquin County Sheriff’s Office that the weapon had been stolen during a burglary sometime in the previous three days at a home he owns on Shippee Lane in Morada.

The gun was recovered June 9 by police responding to a domestic disturbance in north Stockton. The disturbance is believed to be unrelated to the mayor. According to the D.A.’s Office, Silva said he last recalled seeing his missing gun in January 2015. Subsequent ballistics tests revealed the gun was used to kill Harris in the 2200 block of South Sacramento Street early in the morning on Feb. 23, 2015. On Tuesday Himelblau referred to Harris’ killing as a “cold case.” Ballistics tests also linked the gun to another crime. The mayor's gun was fired multiple times toward a house in the 2300 block of South Church Street on Jan. 15, 2015. No one was injured in that crime. This case is also unsolved.

Himelblau said his office spoke to Silva about the recovered gun before last week. “Two investigators from the District Attorney’s Office contacted and attempted to speak to Mr. Silva on July 18, 2016. The investigators identified themselves as agents of the District Attorney’s Office. Mr. Silva believed he recognized one of them. The investigators informed Mr. Silva they wished to speak about the theft of his gun. Mr. Silva declined to speak with the investigators.” When asked about why his office believe's the mayor refuses to cooperate, he said: “I don’t understand it.” Himelblau said his office is seeking to determine exactly when Silva’s gun went missing. “I just don’t get it,” Himelblau said. “We just wanted to find out who took his gun. We would like to solve this crime.”

Media sources reported four months ago that two of Silva’s guns were stolen in separate unsolved burglaries in Morada in 2015. The burglaries occurred at his Spanos Park rental home in Stockton in February of this year. The second stolen gun has not been recovered. The District Attorney’s Office first publicized that Silva’s gun had been recovered in June and that it was the murder weapon in Harris’ killing on Friday. Silva previously said he arrived at his home March 24 while the burglary was in progress. He said he pursued the men for a time in a vehicle chase down Eight Mile Road. He had an unidentified 12-year-old boy in the passenger seat. He said he tried unsuccessfully to get a license-plate number. Silva said he ended the pursuit after being advised by a 911 operator to stop chasing the men.

More details emerged on Tuesday:

• Silva told media sources this past April that a gun safe was among the items he reported stolen along with his gun on March 22, 2015. However, the District Attorney’s Office says Silva did not include a gun safe among the missing items when he reported the burglary to deputies;

• The District Attorney’s Office says Silva’s gun was on the “top shelf” in the closet in the master bedroom “next to a safe.” A shotgun on the shelf next to the pistol was not stolen. Silva has said the now-recovered gun’s trigger lock was engaged when it was taken; and

• Media sources also learned that two men have pleaded guilty to a burglary at Silva’s house in Morada on March 24, 2015. The guilty pleas came two days after the mayor made his March 22 report to sheriff’s deputies regarding his missing gun. The men are serving sentences in the County Jail, according to court records.

Silva's attorney said late Tuesday night: “The D.A.’s office is clearly confused about the facts. The mayor has no reason not to cooperate with law enforcement even in the face of an obviously biased D.A.’s office. As his attorney I can assure you that we have made every effort to assist the investigation. Unfortunately the D.A.’s Office routinely fails to call me back.” Silva is seeking re-election. He is three months away from his November showdown with City Councilman Michael Tubbs.

On Tuesday night, Silva’s political consultant, N. Allen Sawyer, said that it is “absolutely false” that the mayor has refused to cooperate. The political consultant and his lawyer accused the D.A.’s Office of being politically “biased.” Sawyer said that Silva “is absolutely willing to cooperate with the homicide investigation.” Sawyer added: “He first learned of the homicide investigation being connected to his stolen weapon (Friday) in the media.” Sawyer also said: “Hindsight being 20/20, he wishes that he had immediately reported his gun as a theft and not informally got advice from the Stockton Police Department. Stolen guns are a tragic common occurrence in Stockton and often find themselves used in subsequent crimes.”

Silva, 42, is managing the Stockton Municipal Camp for children this week at Silver Lake in Amador County. He was unavailable for comment Tuesday. Sawyer said the mayor plans to leave the camp on Friday. He plans to return to Stockton early so he can hold a Friday news conference to discuss the situation more extensively. According to Sawyer, cellphone service at Silver Lake is too unreliable for Silva to speak with the media from the remote location. Silver Lake is a two-hour drive from Stockton.

Constitutional Sex!

Posted: August 1, 2016 1:37 PM MDT ~ Updated: Tue., 12:17 PM PDT Aug. 02, 2016


Ohio -- An Ohio cop narrowly avoided being sent back to prison for having sex with a 14-year-old boy after the state supreme court ruled in his favor last week, stating that a law barring cops from having sex with minors was unconstitutional.

In the 4-3 decision, the Ohio Supreme Court determined the law violated the state’s Equal Protection Clause of both the U.S. Constitution and the Ohio Constitution because it imposed a higher standard on cops than it did for the general public.

The Ohio sexual battery law includes provisions that make it illegal for people with “established authoritarian relationships” to have sex with minors, including teachers, coaches, administrators, scout leader, clerics and police officers.

However, the court determined that police officers should not be included with the others because there is “no occupation-based relationship between the officer and the victim.”

In other words, the Ohio Supreme Court does not find it possible that a police officer would use his badge to coerce sex out of a minor.

No, that’s never happened before.

In this case, Matthew Mole was a 35-year-old Waite Hill police officer when he met the 14-year-old boy online in 2011, who told him he was 18.

Even when Mole snuck into the boy’s house around 3 a.m. on December 11, 2011 and discovered the boy was shorter and lighter than he had described, not to mention he wore braces and had yet to begin shaving, he still believed the boy to be 18.

The two undressed and were performing oral sex on each other in an unlit sunroom in the back of the house when the boy’s mother walked in on them.

It was then that Mole learned the boy was only 14.

“There’s a naked man in my house with my son,” the boy’s mother said in the 3:57 a.m. call to police.

Police arrived and arrested Mole, who was charged with unlawful sexual contact with a minor and sexual battery. Mole also resigned.

In July 2012, the boy testified that he had lied to Mole about his age and that the sex was consensual, so a jury returned with a hung verdict on the former charge because they could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt that the cop knew the boy was younger than 16, which is the legal age of consent in Ohio.



Matthew T. Mole was arrested in 2011 after the mother of the 14-year-old boy he molested found him in her house during the night. Mole was 35 at the time.

However, the following week, a judge found him guilty of the sexual battery charge because of the provision in the law that states, “No person shall engage in sexual conduct with another, not the spouse of the offender, when any of the following apply: … The other person is a minor, the offender is a peace officer, and the offender is more than two years older than the other person.”

Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Nancy McDonnell sentenced Mole to two years in prison in August 2012 and ordered him to register as a sex offender upon his release.

He remained in prison until July 2013 when he had the conviction reversed upon appeal.

“We agree with Mole that one’s occupation as a peace officer alone, without more, does not provide a person with an ‘unconscionable advantage’ over a minor,” wrote Judge Larry A. Jone of the Eighth Appellate District Court of Ohio in the reversal decision.

But Cuyahoga County prosecutors appealed the decision to the state supreme court.

On Thursday, the Ohio Supreme Court returned with its decision, which you can read here, affirming the appellate court’s decision in that the 2007 law was unconstitutional because it singled out cops, whose jobs, unlike teachers, administrators, coaches and clerics does not “afford offenders access to children.”

That doesn’t mean that police may engage in such acts without fear of prosecution. Other laws barring adults, including peace officers, from having sexual conduct with minors remain in place.

Writing for the court, Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor noted that provisions in the sexual battery statute that apply to a teacher or a minister or a mental health provider are different in that they require an occupational relationship with the minor. The ban for officers, according to O’Connor, required no such relationship and as such was an “arbitrarily disparate treatment of peace officers.”

The key passages are below:

{¶ 2} R.C. 2907.03 is generally a valid scheme insofar as it imposes strict liability for sexual conduct between various classes of offenders who exploit their victims through established authoritarian relationships. But subdivision (A)(13) irrationally imposes that same strict liability on peace officers even when there is no occupation-based relationship between the officer and the victim. We therefore conclude that R.C. 2907.03(A)(13) is an arbitrarily disparate treatment of peace officers that violates equal protection under the Ohio Constitution and the United States Constitution. Accordingly, we affirm the decision of the Eighth District Court of Appeals declaring R.C. 2907.03(A)(13) facially unconstitutional.

{¶ 68} The differential treatment of peace officers in this statutory scheme is based on an irrational classification. The statute not only fails to include any relationship or other element that justifies the omission of a scienter requirement, but also disparately affects peace officers in a way that bears no rational relationship to the government’s interest in protecting minors from sexual coercion by people in positions of authority who use that authority to compel submission. Having carefully considered the compelling interests at play here, the constitutional protections afforded our citizens, and the strong presumption of constitutionality that can only be overcome by a showing that the statute clearly and unequivocally violates the Constitution, we are compelled to conclude that R.C. 2907.03(A)(13) violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Ohio and United States Constitutions.

We do not condone the conduct of appellee. Nor do we easily reach our conclusion that R.C. 2907.03(A)(13) represents a “classification of persons undertaken for its own sake, something the Equal Protection Clause does not permit.” Romer, 517 U.S. at 635, 116 S.Ct. 1620, 134 L.Ed.2d 855.

{¶ 70} Although the government has a compelling interest in protecting minors from sexual coercion and an interest in prohibiting peace officers from abusing their authority in order to sexually exploit minors, the government cannot punish a class of professionals without making a connection between the classification and the prohibited act. We therefore affirm the judgment of the Eighth District Court of Appeals, declaring R.C. 2907.03(A)(13) to be unconstitutional on its face.

One of the dissenters is a former cop, Justice Sharon Kennedy, who believed police officer should be held to a higher standard than the general population.

Criminalizing sexual conduct between a peace officer and a minor is rationally related to a legitimate state interest because it punishes peace officers for conduct that if discovered would diminish them in the eyes of the community. If a peace officer discovered after the fact that the person with whom he engaged in sexual conduct was a minor, he would have a strong incentive to do whatever is necessary to ensure that his employer never found out, even to the point of compromising his integrity. Moreover, there is the potential for blackmail, which could lead to corrupt behavior or worse. These considerations demonstrate how the statute is rationally related to a legitimate government interest of protecting the public trust in peace officers by criminalizing conduct that is not only immoral but is fraught with the potential for corruption and exploitation.

Kennedy also argued that the court’s majority decision was wrong by citing Ohio law that “in order for a statute to be facially unconstitutional, it must be unconstitutional in all applications.”

So just because Mole did not have an occupational relationship with the 14-year-old boy does not mean other officers will not have “established authoritarian relationships” with minors, which would allow them to use that position to sexually abuse children, no different than teachers, coaches or clerics, whom the court believes have special access to children.

All we have to do is look at Police Explorer programs throughout the country in which boys and girls interested in careers in law enforcement are allowed to work with their local law enforcement agencies once they turn 14, going on ride-alongs and learning hands-on aspects of the job, which has resulted in hundreds of reported cases of sex abuse over the years.

In 2014, Cincinnati police officer Darrell Beavers was convicted for an inappropriate relationship with a 17-year-old girl he was supposed to be mentoring through the Explorer Program.

So it’s obvious that Kennedy, as a former cop, is much more aware of what takes place within police departments than the four judges who struck the law down as unconstitutional in the false belief that cops have no more power over children than the average citizen.

SAN DIEGO, CA — Toni Nicole Sutton, 38 (pictured above, center) a Crawford High School Spanish teacher and volley ball coach. Sutton carried on a six-month sexual relationship with a 15-year-old male student. The victim's mother said she saw graphic messages to her son from the defendant. She called the police. Deputy District Attorney Judy Taschner said the relationship between Sutton and the boy started last summer. The prosecutor said the two had sex in the classroom: her car; and at her home. The boy is now aged sixteen (16).

Sutton pleaded guilty last month to unlawful sexual intercourse and oral copulation with a minor. The defendant told the judge that her relationship with her student is one that she will always regret. Sutton told the judge: “I’m so ashamed of what I’ve done.” Her defense attorney said Sutton has suffered physical, mental and sexual abuse in her life and was mentally abused by her ex- boyfriend. The attoreny described Sutton’s relationship with her ex-boyfriend as “toxic. Sutton has been diagnosed with a major depressive disorder and has a “great need to be liked and loved,” her attorney told the judge.

The victim’s mother, identified in court as Loretta, read a letter from her son in which he said he doesn’t know whether to be angry or sad. “My whole life has been turned upside down,” the victim said in the letter. “She (Sutton) was my first … and she broke my heart. I just want my life back.” Loretta said Sutton took away her child’s innocence.

Superior Court Judge Daniel Link sentenced Sutton on Friday to a two-year prison term. The judge told the weeping defendant: “You desecrated the sanctity of the classroom.” Link said a teacher’s job is to educate students, teach them and mentor them. He said Sutton did the “exact opposite.” Link said the case was “different,” in part because of the significant age difference between the defendant and the victim. He ordered Sutton to register as a sex offender for life.

Double Standards!

OAKLAND, CA -- Jorge Ramos, 26, of Oakland, appeared in court Thursday. He appeared on charges that allege he raped and otherwise sexually abused a young girl over two-to-three years. He appeared before an Alameda County judge Thursday morning to receive a public attorney.

The Oakland girl is now 12. The abuse began when the child was 6. She recently reported the abuse to her mother and Oakland police. She broke years of silence motivated by shame and a fear that she wouldn't be believed. The Alameda County District Attorney's Office this week charged Ramos with four felony sex crimes. They include intercourse and/or sodomy with a child under age 10; and continuous sexual abuse.

Ramos was also charged with felony evading police. Police first attempted to arrest him July 9, 2016. According to court documents, Ramos led officers on a vehicle chase. Ramos is being held without bail in Santa Rita Jail.

School Investigations!

STOCKTON, CA — Mario Gates is a former Stockton Unified School District police officer. He is accused of strip searching a high school student. Gates resigned from the department in March after he was criminally charged with the unlawful strip search of a minor. The case involves a 14-year-old boy from Chavez High School. He has denied the accusation. The case is pending in the county Superior Court.

Court records indicate Gates had previously been accused of making a 9-year-old boy expose himself. The information came to light in a motion filed by the San Joaquin County District Attorney’s Office. The motion is seeking the personnel files of Gates. The motion was filed May 5, 2016. It said, “While investigating this case, the Stockton Police Department also became aware of (Gates’) prior incident.”

A school district report dated Oct. 1, 2013 says Gates responded to a report of indecent exposure at Marshall Elementary School. Gates arrived and he and the school principal spoke with the 9-year-old boy. The boy admitted exposing himself in school. Gates told the principal he would walk the student back to class after the meeting. However, Gates took the child into an office.

In the office, Gates “asked him to simulate what happened. The motion says: “In doing so, Gates advised the boy to ‘just pretend’ to expose his buttocks like he had done in class.” Gates was notified by the school that the boy’s mother was upset that he had her child re-enact the incident. The motion says Gates then “went to the child’s home unannounced. He again confronted the child without his mother.” Afterwards the mother contacted the school district to complain about the inappropriate behavior.

Dianne Barth, spokeswoman for the school district, said the incident was investigated by Stockton police. “It was determined to be unfounded,” Barth said. She also said a parent’s complaint is always taken seriously.

Deputy District Attorney Elton Grau declined to comment on details of the motion. She said: “This is a process in which we obtain information we believe will be relevant in a jury trial.” Grau said there are strict protocols officers must adhere to when conducting strip searches on minors. He said when those procedures are not followed, the District Attorney’s Office looks at the case closely. Grau continued saying: “Anybody who has access to children and they commit a crime toward a child is a serious violation in the DA’s office. We’re not going to give them a get-out-of-jail card simply because they are a police officer or a teacher.”

Court papers say that on Oct. 13, 2014, Gates responded to a call of a fight between a minor and another student. Gates handcuffed the teen and took him into a room. The two were alone. Gates found a lighter on Doe and asked the boy if he had marijuana. Even though the teen denied having any marijuana, Gates had him pull down his pants, spread his buttocks and cough and turn around and lift his genitals. Gates didn’t file a police report on the fight until November. He denied having conducted the search.

According to the criminal complaint: "The minor was searched “without reasonable suspicion for a said search, and without prior authorization of the supervising officer on duty.” Gates faces the misdemeanor unlawful strip search of the Chavez High student identified in court documents with the fictitious name John J. Doe. Gates is facing a potential maximum of six months in the County Jail and three months of probation, if convicted. Gates’ next hearing is June 15, when attorneys are scheduled to argue the motion for his personnel file.

Oakland, CA -- The Alameda County Sheriff's Office has concluded internal investigations and cleared four officers of wrongdoing, finding that the relationships between Celeste Guap and its officers occurred when she was of age, were consensual and no money was exchanged. Guap, who has been the victim of sexual exploitation since she was 12, soon became renowned, spreading by word of mouth across the Bay Area police blotter. Guap continues to "work a corner" in East Oakland. Despite her refusal to give up officer's names, Guap feels that the police "all turned their backs on me."

D.A. Investigations!

OAKLAND, CA -- The death of an Oakland police officer's wife inside an Oakland apartment had the makings of a homicide investigation. From the start, Officer Brendan O'Brien was "allegedly" the prime suspect. Two detectives "grilled" him about previous arguments with his wife at police headquarters. O'Brien told police he left the house to buy cigarettes and returned to find his wife dead from a gunshot wound. A receipt from the gas station found in his car confirmed the purchase at 9:45 p.m. Surveillance footage obtained by police showed him in the store around the time of his wife's suicide. Investigators eventually ruled the June 2014 death of Irma Huerta Lopez a suicide. Officer O'Brien committed suicide in September 2015.

Officer O'Brien was again absolved on Monday by the office of Alameda County District Attorney, Nancy O'Malley. O'Malley claims to have conducted a lengthy review of the case. D.A. O'Malley's report confirmed Huerta Lopez's as death a suicide. Officer O'Brien's suicide was also re-examined. O'Malley concluded: "After an exhaustive review of the investigation, it is our opinion that both deaths were investigated professionally and thoroughly, ultimately reaching the reasonable and appropriate determination to classify each death a suicide."

O'Malley outlined her findings in a letter sent Friday to Schaaf, City Administrator Sabrina Landreth and assistant police Chief David Downing. Mayor Schaaf supposedly requested the new investigation after news reports said the gun she used was fired twice. This evidence deepened her family's doubts over her death. Lopez's family maintained lingering suspicion of O'Brien. The new investigations came amid an East Bay-wide law enforcement sexual misconduct scandal. Officer O'Brien exposed the scandal in a suicide note.

O'Brien's suicide note consists of a two-page, typewritten letter signed by the 30-year-old officer. According to the DA's report, O'Brien revealed the names of some officers who were involved with a woman who goes by the name of Celeste Guap. Guap is a sexually exploited teen. She is the daughter of a police dispatcher. Guap claimed to have had a sexual relationship with O'Brien when she was underage. She also said she had sex with about 30 officers from various police departments. Some of the sexual encounters occurred when she was underage. Guap turned 18 about a month before O'Brien's suicide on Sept. 25, 2015.

She also said some of the officers shared confidential information with her. Guap's allegations sparked a widespread investigation. It resulted in several officers in Oakland, Richmond, Livermore, the Contra Costa Sheriff's Office and an inspector with the Alameda County District Attorney's Office being placed on leave, or resigning. The fallout from the scandal caused Oakland police Chief Sean Whent to resign under pressure in June. Whent's two successors departed within one week. The city is currently without a chief of police. The only possible reference to Guap in the DA's report was the police interview of an 18-year-old "Jane Doe." The interview was conducted five days after O'Brien's suicide.

The bulk of deputy district attorney Timothy Wagstaffe's report focused on Huerta Lopez's death on June 16, 2014. O'Brien and a neighbor each called 911 at about 9:52 p.m. Paramedics pronounced Huerta Lopez dead at 10:13 p.m. O'Brien consented to a search of his home, car and cellphone. He gave a blood sample. Crime scene technicians took about 1,000 photographs as they searched the apartment. Over the next 12 hours, other evidence as officers interviewed neighbors in the apartment complex at on Greenridge Drive.

Meanwhile, O'Brien sat in an interview room at police headquarters from 12:21 a.m. until he was interviewed at 5:19 a.m. During his interview with Sgts. Cesar Basa and Mike Gantt, Wagstaff wrote, "the investigators employed interrogation tactics. The tactics included the use of a 'ruse' in order to try and obtain information from Officer O'Brien. The investigators delved into any perceived inconsistencies in his statement until they were satisfied that all their questions had been answered truthfully and consistently." Nothing in O'Brien's suicide note contradicted his statements to Basa and Gantt, according to the report.

Technicians collected gunshot residue from O'Brien and Huerta Lopez. Police said both O'Brien and Huerta Lopez had gunshot residue on their hands. Investigators said the residue on O'Brien could have come from earlier firing or handling a gun. However, her DNA was more prevalent on the weapon.

Lt. Roland Holmgren, head of the homicide unit, said his unit takes all investigations seriously. "I hope the results of the independent investigation will work to ease some of the doubts cast about our ability to conduct fair and unbiased investigations," Holmgren said. Gantt, a seasoned detective, was recently investigated for having his girlfriend transcribe his notes in a 2013 homicide case.

Mayor Schaaf said in a statement: "This third-party review serves to reinforce the integrity of our police investigations. The public deserves to have confidence that we take any allegations or wrongdoing seriously and that our police department continues to operate with the highest level of professional and ethical standards." The DA's office and the police department continue to investigate the allegations of sexual misconduct by officers.

Oakland, CA -- Corrupt Justice™ is learning more about the alleged relationship between Celeste Guap and Rick Orozco. Orozco is an investigator from the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office. He is now on leave as a result of the Oakland police sex scandal case. Orozco is a former OPD officer of 28 years. He retired in 2015 before joining the D.A.’s office. Guap claims she and Orozco had a sexting relationship while she was underage.


On Thursday, the now 18-year-old woman at the center of the scandal texted media sources some details about her alleged connection to the district attorney’s investigator. Celeste Guap would not talk on camera. However, throughout the day, she and sources have been texting. What she told sources was sexually graphic and concerned her online messages with Orozco. Their communications were private on Facebook Messenger. Guap sent sources a copy of the message on Thursday morning. It was too explicit for TV, but it involved a sex act.

When asked what sparked the suggestive language. Guap replied via text, “Well based on the photos I had just sent him.”

The sources asked: “Nude photos?”

Guap replied: “Yeah, lol.”


When the source asked to see more messages from Orozco, Guap replied: “I think that’s all I have but we started sexting when I was 17 lol. He’s so handsome. For a 50-year-old.”

On Wednesday, Alameda County District Attorney Nancy O’ Malley placed Orozco on administrative leave. His connection to the self-described call girl is now under investigation.

The Alameda County District Attorney's office said no former Oakland officers would participate in its investigation. That includes DA inspector and one-time Oakland Police captain Rick Orozco, who once wrote a Facebook message to Guap that said, "I would love your taco!"

Wannabe Judge!



Oakland, CA -- Former Alameda County Deputy District Attorney Scott Jackson (pictured below, center), who is currently running for an Alameda County Superior Court judge seat, said he did not know he was Facebook friends with Celeste Guap until a reporter called him Monday. Jackson said he didn't know who she was and "unfriended" her while on the phone with this newspaper.

Sex, Murder, or Suicide?

Posted: May 13, 2016 12:55 AM PDT ~ Updated: May 24, 2016 02:45 PM PDT


OAKLAND, CA -- Terryl Smith and James Ta'ai are the two Oakland police officers who resigned this month in the wake of a sexual misconduct scandal. Both the officers graduated from the Oakland police academy in 2014. Smith and Ta'ai graduated from the 168th Basic Recruit Academy. This was the largest-ever class of recruits to graduate in Oakland at a time when the city was working to add officers to its depleted ranks. Oakland police announced Wednesday that two of the four officers placed on paid leave during an investigation into sexual misconduct with the daughter of a police dispatcher, had resigned. However, OPD did not divulge their names.

On Friday, OPD provided the names of five of employees who resigned from the department since May 1, 20-16. According to the list of names provided by the department: Smith resigned Tuesday and Ta'ai resigned May 13, 2016. On the 13th police Chief Sean Whent and Mayor Libby Schaaf held a tense news conference to address the investigation. The list was provided in response to a public records request. However, a police spokeswoman refused to identify the two officers. It's not exactly clear how the officers are connected to the ongoing investigation.

The investigation was first sparked after Officer Brendan O'Brien committed suicide on Sept. 25, 2015. O'Brien left a suicide note naming officers who reportedly were involved with the dispatcher's daughter who goes by the name Celeste Guap. The Internal Affairs unit investigated the allegations in O'Brien's note. It is not known if any action was taken. However, the criminal and internal affairs probe was reopened after the federal monitor overseeing the department heard about the case.


The Alameda County District Attorney's Office is now doing an independent review. They are allegedly reviewing the sexual misconduct allegations and deaths of O'Brien and his wife. Irma Huerta Lopez is the wife of O'Brien. She allegedly committed suicide in June 2014. Her death was briefly investigated as suspicious and later ruled a suicide. However, her sister has said she still has doubts that it was a suicide and blames O'Brien for her death.

Smith and Ta'ai could not be reached for comment. A call to the Rains Lucia Stern law firm, which frequently represents Oakland police officers, was not returned.

On Friday morning, Chief Whent addressed 44 new officers graduating from the 174th Basic Recruit Academy. and warned them to pay close attention to their moral compass.

"One risk I want you to pay close attention to is when and how you or others may lose your bearing to our shared moral compass. As police officers, you now share our obligation to uphold our code of ethics," Whent said.

He said officers must "maintain an unsullied personal life."

"The actions of one officer on or off duty anywhere in the country can have severe and lasting impacts on the relationship we have with our community here at home," Whent said. "That relationship is the foundation upon which our community safety is built and nothing is worth jeopardizing that."

Schaaf told the new officers she wasn't going to be as "subtle" as Whent.

"You've chosen an amazing week to become police officers," the mayor said. "This department is being rocked by a scandal of off duty conduct."

OAKLAND, CA -- 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.



Brendon O'Brien is part of a group photo at the 166th Basic Academy graduation at the Scottish Rite Temple in Oakland, Calif., on Friday, March 22, 2013.

All attempts to reach the woman at the center of the scandal through a relative were not successful. However, she has been posting about the allegations on Facebook. This week Guap wrote: "[T]he only officer I ever messed with underage is sadly gone now, so I don't know why this is still being brought up." In another of her posts in late April, there was a picture of an Oakland patrol car parked at gas station with a message: "took me back to Richmond in style #saucy."

On June 16, 2014, O'Brien's wife, 29-year-old Irma Huerta Lopez, allegedly committed suicide. Adding to the intrigue she shot herself in the head with her husband's gun. Lopez' death was briefly investigated as suspicious but then ruled a suicide. Her family was not convinced. They blamed O'Brien for her death. On Friday, Lopez' sister Paulina Huerta said: "I always knew it. It was not possible for my sister to kill herself. But we didn't have proof."

On Friday City officials confirmed the gun that killed Huerta Lopez was fired twice. One bullet hit the floor and the other struck her head. O'Brien and his wife tested positive for gunshot residue on their hands. The coroner's report says the two had argued the night of the suicide. O'Brien left the home and returned to find her dead. O'Brien admitted in the suicide note that was drinking heavily and suffered from lingering suspicion that he might be involved in his wife's death, despite being cleared, a source said. Calls and messages to the O'Brien family were not returned.

Police Chief Sean Whent and Lt. Roland Holmgren of the homicide unit said it is not uncommon for both of those things to happen. Whent said the investigations into the deaths were thorough. He said evidence supports the suicide rulings in the case of O'Brien and his wife. However, the city announced that the Alameda County District Attorney's Office has been called in to review both suicide investigations and the ongoing sexual misconduct investigation.

U.S. District Judge Thelton Henderson, who oversees the department's court-mandated reforms stemming from the 1999 Riders police-brutality scandal, issued an order in March saying there were "irregularities" and "violations" of procedure in the handling of the sex allegations by police. The judge wrote that it raises concerns about the department's "commitment to accountability and sustainability."

Mayor Libby Schaaf called for the district attorney investigations and said no DA employees who used to work for the police department will be a part of it. Whent and Schaaf declined to discuss the sexual misconduct investigation. The exact allegations have not been released. Schaaf has asked the department to report to the DA's office each time an officer is suspected of criminal misconduct. Whent cited recent arrests of two officers while off-duty. He said the department will review misconduct cases in recent years to look for patterns and see if leaders can prevent future cases.

“Repugnant!”

Noah White Winchester, 31, of Stockton, was arrested on July 21, 2016 and has been charged with raping or sexually assaulting five women while on duty as a San Mateo police officer and earlier as an officer with the Los Rios Community College District in Sacramento. ( San Mateo Police Dept. )

Stockton, CA (WCJB) ~ United States -- The accusations against Noah Winchester, a former San Mateo police officer, are truly shocking. Investigators say he's a serial rapist. The former northern California police officer was charged Thursday with raping five women while on duty. Police arrested Noah Winchester, 31, near his Stockton home Thursday morning after the local district attorney charged him with 22 counts of kidnapping, rape and related charges. Winchester, who is jailed on $3.1 million bail, is scheduled for an arraignment Monday. It's unclear if he's represented by an attorney.

"If these allegations are proven to be true, that would be horrific for the women who were victimized. Such criminal behavior is contrary to the core values and mission of the Los Rios Community College District," district spokesman Mitchel Benson said.

Winchester was linked to two other assaults in San Mateo and two more around Sacramento. All of the victims were female, and all but one were adults, prosecutors say. Winchester is charged as follows:

•» Oct. 20, 2015: Two counts of rape and one count of kidnapping in the Coyote Point case;
•» Sept. 22, 2015: One count of residential burglary and one count attempted rape for an encounter in a San Mateo motel room;
•» Sept. 15, 2015: Two counts sexual battery involving a victim at Hillsdale Mall in San Mateo;
•» Aug. 30, 2013: Two counts digital penetration, four counts sexual battery and one count kidnapping involving a 17-year-old girl in a Los Rios Community College parking lot; and
•» July 2, 2013: Two counts rape, four counts oral copulation, one count kidnapping and one count of felony threats involving a victim at a Los Rios campus building.

Winchester was hired by San Mateo police in early 2015 and completed his probationary period in June, meaning he was patrolling unsupervised for about four months when he was placed on leave following the October allegation. In February, with the investigation still underway, Winchester resigned from the department.

San Mateo, CA -- Police authorities announced Thursday that one of their officers is being investigated by the District Attorney’s Office for allegations he raped a woman while on duty. Officer Noah Winchester was employed with the San Mateo police department for about nine months before allegations of severe, “repugnant” sexual criminal misconduct came to the department’s attention. San Mateo police claim they learned of the allegations in October 2015. Winchester was immediately placed on paid administrative leave. His police powers were suspended. Police say he subsequently resigned prior to the investigation being completed.


Police Chief Susan Manheimer said: [Our department] “recognizes the seriousness, and is absolutely horrified at the nature of these criminal allegations. We want to reassure the public that this alleged conduct in no way reflects the core values of this department, its members or the police profession. We repudiate any and all misconduct while protecting and serving our public.”

District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe would only confirm that Winchester was currently being investigated for criminal conduct against women while on duty. Wagstaffe said police quickly contacted his office as soon as they were notified. He noted the former San Mateo officer has not yet been charged. He said the investigation is ongoing and he anticipates making a decision next month. Wagstaffe said: “We agreed to conduct the lengthy investigation … for criminal conduct while on duty, involving women.”

Burlingame police reportedly notified San Mateo police and the District Attorney’s Office after receiving an allegation from a victim. A Burlingame woman reported she was raped by Winchester at Coyote Point Recreation Area. The allegations sparked an investigation that has led to potentially four other victims on the Peninsula and in Sacramento County. Neither police nor Wagstaffe would release many details. They noted the investigation was made public before a determination had been made about the allegations or whether criminal charges would be filed.

Winchester worked at another law enforcement agency in Sacramento County. He patrolled the American River College before recently being hired in San Mateo. The college’s newspaper, the American Current, profiled Winchester in 2014 noting he previously spent time with the U.S. Marine Corps before joining the Los Rios Police Department. He reportedly made more than $88,200 in benefits and pay while employed by the college district in 2014, according to state records. No one could immediately confirm where Winchester is currently residing. Online records show he previously lived in Sacramento.

The Racist Rapist!

SAN FRANCISCO, CA (WCJB) — The San Francisco Police Department is in the spotlight again for racist text messages between officers. Some of the text messages appear to mock the public outcry from a previous scandal where officers were accused of sending racist text messages. The officers involved sent texts between 2014 and 2015 that made fun of criticism of an earlier text scandal. The earlier scandal came to light during a police corruption trial. The scandal uncovered racist and homophobic messages sent between 2011 and 2012 by a group of five officers.

The city’s public defender and experts on criminal justice said the texts appeared to reveal a deep culture of bias in the 2,000-member force. A bias that contradicts the city’s image of tolerance and liberalism. Jeff Adachi, the public defender, said in an interview:


“These texts evidence a deep culture of racial hatred and animus against blacks, Latinos, gays and even South Asians. It can no longer be said to be an isolated problem.”


The new racist texts were uncovered during a criminal rape investigation involving two SFPD officers. Curtis Liu (pictured above, center) is a retired lieutenant with the San Francisco Police Department. Liu was arrested last week. He appeared in court and entered a not guilty plea to felony and misdemeanor charges on May 3, 2016. Liu was charged after he allegedly interfered with a police investigation into sexual assault allegations against his fellow officer, Jason Lai (pictured above-top, center-right).

Lui allegedly tipped Lai off about the investigation. He then lied to subordinates and his superior officers to cover it up. The subsequent investigation uncovered text messages exchanged among officers connected to Lai and including Liu. The messages contained racist and sexist language. They also included derogatory references to blacks, Latinos, Indians, Muslims, protesters, rape victims and gay and transgender people.


San Francisco Public Defender Jeff Adachi issued the following statement following the latest revelation:


“In light of revelations that a second group of San Francisco police officers exchanged racist and homophobic text messages, my office will begin a full review of past cases that may have been tainted by these officers. I am also calling for an independent investigation into when the police chief and district attorney learned of the text messages. Every person in San Francisco deserves equal justice. It does them a grave disservice to dismiss every hateful act as an isolated incident. The police department must address the culture that lets racism fester in its ranks.”

District Attorney George Gascón formed a panel to investigate allegations of racism in 2015. Gascón said racism in the department go beyond isolated incidents. He said: “This problem is more systemic and it needs to be addressed in a more deeper fashion.” Gascón said investigators were going through evidence sent by the Police Department late last year related to the previous case. It was at this time he said they discovered the additional bigoted messages.

However, Gascón said his office was not notified of the additional text messages and only learned of it late last week. He said they were discovered after sifting through the thousands of pages of messages themselves. Gascon said: “It was never pointed out to us.” He continued: “If the department knew about it, it’s a problem that we weren’t told.”


Police Chief Greg Suhr disagreed. He said the department notified Gascon about the existence of the new text messages last year. Suhr said the five officers involved have either been fired or are in the process of being fired. In a letter to Gascón Thursday, Suhr said:


“For you to suggest that you discovered the text messages through your own criminal investigation would be disingenuous. This is not new information as our offices have been working closely on this case with at least three members of your staff to ensure the fair administration of justice.”

The texting scandal in San Francisco comes as the federal government is conducting an overall review of the Police Department. The review comes after the fatal shooting in December of an African-American man, Mario Woods. The video of the shooting was posted online. It prompted an outcry. Mayor Edwin M. Lee then requested a federal investigation. The federal investigation is being carried out by the Justice Department.

Chief Child-Predator!

Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (WCJB) -- Former Department of Public Safety (DPS) Commissioner James C. Deleon Guerrero, 44 (pictured above, center) and Jesse Concepcion, 45, Police Officer III (pictured below, center) confessed during their interview that they had sex with a 15 year-old girl at a secluded San Antonio beach site in June 2013. The Office of the Attorney General charged Deleon Guerrero and Concepcion each with one count of sexual abuse of a minor in the first degree: two counts of misconduct in public office; and two counts of conspiracy to commit sexual abuse of a minor in the first degree. Deleon Guerrero and Concepcion are both under house arrest after posting $15,000 and $10,000 cash bail plus property, respectively.


The Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) government called Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent Haejun Park to the witness stand at a preliminary hearing on Friday. Park explained why the FBI was involved in the investigation in the case against Guerrero and Concepcion. Park testified that the investigation in this case started with a Crime Stoppers’ tip about a possible sex trafficking of minors in July 2013. Park said the FBI conducted an investigation in 2013 separate from the DPS because it involved child pornography and CNMI government officials.

The special agent discussed the FBI’s investigation in the case against Raymond B. Roberto, former firefighter Richard Sullivan Benavente, 45, and Annette N. Basa. Roberto is the former acting director of the CNMI Division of Fish and Wildlife. Roberto was acquitted in September 2014 by a federal jury on charges that he enticed three minor girls to engage in prostitution and tampered a witness while he was in jail. In 2013, a federal grand jury indicted Benavente. He was indicted on several counts of sexual exploitation of a child. He cooperated with authorities and pleaded guilty to a count of sexual exploitation of a child. On Feb. 22, 2016, U.S. District Court for the NMI Chief Judge Ramona V. Manglona sentenced Benavente to the maximum imprisonment of 30 years.

In December 2014, Basa was slapped with a 17.5-year prison term for pleading guilty to sex trafficking of children. Park testified that Basa was the person who provided the girl to Concepcion. Park testified that he did not believe that Guerrero was aware of the arrangement between Basa and Concepcion. He testified that Basa was providing the girl with sex customers in exchange for money, drugs, and cigarettes. Park testified that Basa stated in her interview that initially she was not aware that one customer was Guerrero. She said she later found out that it was the then-DPS commissioner.

Park said they solicited assistance from the CNMI’s Attorney General’s Investigative Division pertaining to the investigation against Guerrero and Concepcion. Park said it was awkward for him to approach Guerrero for an interview in March 2014 because they knew each other as law enforcement partners. Agent Park testified that both Guerrero and Concepcion did in fact confess to the sexual offenses. Park said Guerrero and Concepcion acted surprised when he told them that the girl was a minor. He then told them she was only 15 years old.

The special agent testified that Guerrero confessed that he had sex with the alleged victim on two occasions. On both occasions the sex acts occurred at a San Antonio beach, behind a school in June 2013. He said Guerrero provided details of the sex encounters. However, he stated that he was not aware that the girl was a minor. The special agent testified that Guerrero said he believed at the time that the girl was not a minor because she had pubic hair. Park testified that on both occasions Concepcion was present.

Park said Concepcion was also surprised when he interviewed him in September 2013. However, he testified that the officer confessed and provided details about his multiple sex encounters with the girl. Park said Concepcion provided corroborating information about Guerrero’s sex encounters with the girl. He said Concepcion stated that he had sex at least on four occasions with the girl.

Park said he interviewed the girl about half a dozen times mostly because of her sexual encounters with different persons. Park said they had shown Guerrero the sex video between Benavente and the girl. He said Guerrero stated that he believes it was the same girl he had sex at the beach site. Park said Basa identified Guerrero.

The defense called one witness. The witness was Melissa Bauleong. She is an investigator from the Office of the Public Auditor. She interviewed the girl in July 2013.

Superior Court Associate Judge Joseph N. Camacho continued the preliminary hearing to May 9, 2016 at 1:30 p.m. An issue arose regarding an affirmative defense for both Guerrero and Concepcion. “[I]n a prosecution under 6 CMC 1303-1309, whenever a provision of law defining an offense depends upon a victim being under a certain age, it is an affirmative defense that, at the time of the alleged offense, the defendant reasonably believed the victim to be that age or older, unless the victim was under 13 years of age at the time of the alleged offense.” Camacho ordered the prosecution and the defense counsel to submit briefs on the affirmative defense issue.

Lima 10-4!

Former Lima Police Department officer Justin Bentz is handcuffed and escorted from Allen County Common Pleas Court after being sentenced to 14 years in prison Thursday morning.

LIMA, OH — Justin Bentz, 28, has been stripped of his badge and the Job that goes with it. The fired Lima police officer learned Thursday that his freedom would also be taken away. Judge David Cheney sentenced Bentz to prison for the next 14 years for raping a 16-year-old girl. Bentz sat stone-faced throughout the hearing and had nothing to say. His attorney advised him to remain silent. His attorney said an appeal of the decision is being planned. Bentz will have to register and report in as a sex offender when he is released every 90 days for the rest of his life.

A letter from the victim’s parents was read as a victim’s impact statement. It expressed their concerns about their daughter’s well-being in the future. The parents were concerned about how the crime could affect the rest of her life. They said it’s been a horrible situation for her whole family to endure.

Cheney said police probably are more criticized today by various groups, sometimes unfairly, than during any time in history. However, Cheney said that Bentz' case is not one of those cases. Cheney said this was a clear case of a crime by an officer. The rape occurred June 11 at a home west of Lima where he lived with a roommate. Cheney said: “He was an adult over and above being a police officer. This girl looked like she was 12 years old and to somehow indicate one was mistaken about her age is on the preposterous side.” Cheney said he was troubled by Bentz’ position as a police officer. The judge said he was especially troubled by the fact that just hours before Bentz raped the girl: he attended a law enforcement class educating him about sexual assault; the effects of alcohol in such cases; and the pitfalls of prosecuting such cases.

Special Prosecutor Todd Schroeder asked for the maximum sentence of 22 years. He argued that there were too many factors that made the crime more severe from his position of trust. He pointed to the victim’s age and the education just hours before on sexual assault. Schroeder argued: “He proceeded to do what he had just spent time studying what he cannot do. He gave her alcohol to the point this little girl could not even get off the floor.” Schroeder said all Bentz cared about was his own sexual gratification. The prosecutor added that Bentz’ efforts to protect himself after the incident and throughout the trial showed he only cared for himself and not the traumatized the victim.

Bentz’ attorney asked for a sentence of no more than eight years. He wanted the sentences on rape and kidnapping to run concurrently (or at the same time). He argued both were part of one crime. Schroeder argued that Bentz had the victim hide in the closet to try to conceal the crime. The judge agreed with the prosecution, but imposed a 14 year sentence.

Bentz’ attorney told the judge only two people know what happened that morning, the victim and Bentz. However, he continued, both gave completely different versions of the event. He said often times that indicates what truly happened was somewhere in the middle. The attorney continued: “He will have a lot of time to think about his actions on that morning." Kluge also asked Cheney to request Bentz receive special treatment in his placement within the state prison system. He argued Bentz is a former police officer convicted of a sex offense against a child. Any three of those factors often make life harder for an inmate with the other inmates. Cheney said the file would be documented for state prison officials to read.

A spokesman for the state prison systems said each inmate is assessed upon entry into the system. If there is a need for additional security, the inmate may be placed in a protective custody unit. The unit is not just for former police officers, he said.

Tyler Hormel, arrested by Madera County Sheriff''s Office on Monday and accused of sexual misconduct with a minor, has been fired from the Chowchilla Police Force, and charged with sexual misconduct.

CHOWCHILLA, Calif. (WCJB) -- A Chowchilla school resource officer is in jail after allegedly having sexual intercourse with a minor.

Tyler Hormel, 35, was arrested by the Madera County Sheriff's Department on Monday for allegedly having sexual intercourse with a teenager. "These are pretty spectacular charges, I don't know how else to put that," said Jay Varney, Madera County Sheriff.

Hormel is a Chowchilla police officer and school resource officer for the Chowchilla Elementary School District. Deputies say Hormel spent 12 years on the force and is now on administrative leave after his arrest. "The initial allegation was about conduct that occurred during December of 2015," Varney explained.

That alleged incident, according to the sheriff's office, involved a teenager. "The person is a student at a school in Chowchilla," Varney said. "Not currently at one of the schools that he oversees."


Inmate information for Homel posted on the Madera County website shows his seven charges ranging from oral copulation to rape by force or fear.

Varney would not give specifics on where the inappropriate activity took place because of its ongoing investigation, but he did credit the Chowchilla Police Department for reaching out to them immediately after being informed of what happened. "The police department contacted us as soon as they heard the allegations and immediately went to work on it," Varney explained.

The sheriff's department said it wants to reassure the community that none of the alleged incidents happened at any of the schools Hormel worked at it.


Inappropriate Relationships!

Posted: Monday, March 7, 2016 1:56 pm ~ Updated: Thursday, April 28, 2016 12:28 pm

San Jose, CA -- An assistant track coach at an East San Jose high school who allegedly had inappropriate relationships with two students was arrested earlier this week, police said Thursday. Enoch Garcia, 21, of San Jose, was arrested Tuesday on suspicion of having sexual intercourse with a minor and lewd and lascivious acts with a minor, police Officer Albert Morales said.

The 21-year-old man was an assistant track and cross country coach at Mt. Pleasant High School for two years before his arrest, said Cari Vaeth, associate superintendent of human resources at the East Side Union High School District.

On Monday, a district employee contacted police to report an inappropriate relationship between a student and an assistant coach, later identified as Garcia, Morales said.

An investigation showed Garcia allegedly had a sexual relationships two students, ages 14 and 17, enrolled at the school, according to Morales.

On Tuesday, Garcia was interviewed by the police department’s Internet Crimes Against Children/Child Exploit Detail task force and arrested, Morales said.

The suspect was booked into the Elmwood Correctional Facility in Milpitas, where he is being held on $200,000 bail, according to jail records.

Vaeth said: “In this case we have an employee who violated the trust of the district and the students.”

Garcia is a 2012 graduate of the high school and was terminated from his position as a part-time coach on Monday, when a teacher reported the alleged relationship to the district, she said. In response, the district notified police and Child Protective Services, she said. The principal has addressed students in response to the arrest and counselors are available on campus for support, according to Vaeth. District officials are cooperating with the police investigation, she said.
