Christopher Wayne Cassell Sentenced to 50 Years … Sex Offenders “not so” Clean Getaway

Christopher Wayne Cassell, 26, was sentenced to 50 years in prison after his plea agreement to rape and sodomy charges of a Henrico County woman in May. Cassell went through great lengths to conceal the crime; however, his attempted clean getaway was not good enough.

After breaking into her home and repeatedly raping and sodomizing a Henrico County woman in May last year, he made off with the bedsheet and ordered his victim to shower.

“He was trying to get rid of the evidence,” said Henrico Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Michael V. Gerrard.

But Cassell, 26, wasn’t thorough enough.

Traces of DNA he left on his victim, a middle-aged professional woman who lived alone, provided a cold hit that linked Cassell to the crime. (Richmond Times Dispatch)

Cassell’s 50 year plea deal was in lieu of a trying his chances at a court hearing where the rape & sodomy charges against him could have resulted in four life terms

“It was a brutal crime,” Gerrard said. Cassell gagged his victim, broke her nose and threatened her with a knife in the course of the three hours he spent in her home.

California Judge Puts Limits on Proposition 83 … More Judicial Activism

U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton restricted some of the wording that was put forth in California’s Proposition 83 that put restrictions of convicted sex offenders. Judge claims that Jessica’s Law not intended to be retroactive.

Voters passed Proposition 83 on a 70.5 percent to 29.5 percent vote in Tuesday’s election. The measure bars registered sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of schools and parks, a requirement challenged in a lawsuit by an anonymous plaintiff convicted of a sex offense 15 years ago.

It continues to be an unbelievable concept that Judges wish to continue to protect the rights of sex offenders and pedophiles over the rights of children and victims. This country has a decision to make. It cannot be both ways. It has become obvious that sex offenders rights are protected as they gradually escalate their crimes, ruin children’s and family’s lives until they commit murder. Suddenly there is outrage. Jessica’s Law is intended to protect children in whatever manner possible. It is the judge’s law that interprets it to fit their agenda.

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A federal judge ruled Friday that California’s ban on sex offenders living within 2,000 feet of places where children gather can’t be applied retroactively.

U.S. District Judge Lawrence Karlton said there was nothing in the so-called Jessica’s Law that specified its provisions were intended to be applied retroactively. He added that state law requires the statute apply from the date it takes effect.

More than 70 percent of voters approved the measure, Proposition 83, on Nov. 7 and it took effect the next day.

The law prohibits registered sex offenders from living within 2,000 feet of a school or park, effectively banning paroled sex offenders from many California communities. It also requires lifetime satellite tracking for some paroled sex criminals upon their release from prison.

Convicted Child Molester Fred Everts get 800 Years … NICE!!!

Child molester sentenced to 800 year … now there’s a good start.

Fred Everts, 36, was convicted of molesting three boys ages 3, 9 and 11and was sentenced to 800 year in a San Jose, California court. Everts had admitted to molesting over 40 children. Many states in the US should follow this example.

Police discovered the crimes two years ago while investigating Dean Arthur Schwartzmiller, who authorities say may have molested hundreds of youngsters over decades and kept detailed logs on the children.

Schwartzmiller, 65, was sentenced in January to 152 years in prison for abusing two 12-year-old boys. He and Everts had met in prison on earlier molestation charges and eventually moved in together in San Jose.

Steve Fein, who prosecuted both men, said Everts admitted molesting about 40 children, including his 3-month-old biological son. He asked for the maximum sentence of 1,175 years to life.

Everts’ sentence was compounded under California’s three-strikes law because of two felony convictions in Oregon in 1993 for sodomy and sexual abuse on his young stepson. (AP)
