Allenna Williams Ward, 23 year old Middle School Teacher arrested for having Sex with five boys

If its a school story, it must be another teacher-student sexual exploitation case. 23 Allenna Wardyear old Allenna Williams Ward is accused of having sex with 5 boys whose ages range from 14 to 15. Ward was busted when an inappropriate note from the teach to one of the victims was found in the garbage.

CLINTON, S.C. (WLTX, AP) — Authorities say a 23-year-old female middle school teacher was arrested Wednesday, accused of having sex with five boys in locations including the school, at a motel, in a park and behind a restaurant.

Clinton Public Safety Director John Thomas says some of the 14- and 15-year-old victims were students at Bell Street Middle School in Laurens School District 56, where Allenna Williams Ward taught. Others went to a different school.

Investigators say there could be more victims.

Warrants show Ward is charged with five counts of second degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and six counts of lewd acts on a minor. The incidents occurred between November and continued up through the past few weeks.

Ward has been fired from her job and is under house arrest. I wonder if this was a male teacher whether the bale would have been so low and house arrest deemed appropriate if 5 female 14 and 15 year old girls had been molested?

School district officials say they held an emergency meeting and fired Ward from her job. Thursday morning, bond was set at $110,000: $10,000 for each of the eleven charges. Terms of her bond include no contact with the alleged victims, no cell phone use, and if she posts bond, Ward is under house arrest.

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.

Justice Comes Early for Sex Predator, Robert Allen Billings … “God’s Justice”

Sometimes justice comes from above … Why can’t they all be this simple?

Robert Allen Billings, 58, was awaiting trial for sexual abuse charges against a seven year old girl. Linn County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Robert Allen Billings on four counts of first-degree sex abuse.

Robert Allen Billings is no stranger to being a sexual predator. He has two previous convictions for Sex Abuse 1. Billings is registered with the Oregon State Police as a “predatory” sex offender on the Oregon Sexual Predator Registry.

Robert Allen Billings, habitual sex offender was found dead in his cell from an apparent heart attack. I guess we will no longer have to worry about the corrections systems letting this pedophile out and endangering our children. Here’s one way to stop the predators cycle of molesting children and one day escalating it to murder.

Dead is dead and justice is served. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

Dean Arthur Schwartzmiller, Serial Child Rapist, Gets Life in Prison

File this one under it couldn’t have happened to a more deserving person. Dean Arthur Schwartzmiller was sentenced to 150 years in prison for the rape and molestation of two 12 year old boys.

Dean Arthur Schwartzmiller, 64, who also had been convicted of sexual assaults in several states over three decades, was sentenced to the maximum term on 11 felony counts of child molestation and one misdemeanor charge of child pornography possession.

Schwartzmiller represented himself during his trial last year but asked for an attorney to represent him during the sentencing phase. (AP)

It has been reported that Schwartzmiller was one of the most prolific serial rapist who may have been responsible for numerous and untold scores of child rapes.

When Schwartzmiller was arrested in June 2005, investigators found a memoir describing abuse, binders full of child pornography and 1,500 notebook pages with headings including “blond boys,” “no, but yes boys,” and “best of the best, 13 and under.”

Get a load of what this child molester and his attorney tried to pass off as a defense … “Our society doesn’t accept a man who loves boys”. Gee, no kidding!!! Earth to defense attorney, its also against the law, but I guess that is a technicality for a lawyer who represents the scum of the earth.

Schwartzmiller, who acted as his own attorney during his October trial, told jurors that he was innocent and maligned by a society that doesn’t accept men who love boys.

During his testimony, Schwartzmiller said the memoir and notebook entries were fiction.

Schwartzmiller sentenced to 150 years for child molestation

Schwartzmiller, who had at least three molestation convictions and a dozen arrests over three decades, abused many as 100 boys in eight U.S. states, Mexico and Brazil from 1969 to 2005, prosecutors said.

Although police say Schwartzmiller appears to have spent much of the past three decades years in California, he has also been arrested on child molestation charges in New York, Idaho, Oregon, Arkansas and Washington. He has lived in Nevada, Texas and Washington.

In 1984, the Idaho Supreme Court upheld a 1978 conviction for molesting two 14-year-old boys and characterized Schwartzmiller as a “repeat offender” who “uses his intelligence to take advantage of the weak and oppressed and those who are in need.”

Schwartzmiller “frequents areas where young boys may be found, befriends boys with no father figure in the home, entices them from their homes, lowers their natural inhibitions through the use of drugs and alcohol, and commits sex acts upon them,” the justices wrote.

At the time of his arrest in 2005, he was wanted in Oregon on felony sexual assault charges involving a minor. After serving prison time in Idaho for child molestation in the late 1970s, he lived in Brazil, and was extradited from there to Idaho again in the late 1980s. (Pine Bluff Commercial)

Did Joshua Thurber have Past Allegations (Lewd & Lascivious behavior) Prior to Death of Jodi Sanderholm?

Its being reported that the man, Joshua Thurber, accused of kidnapping, raping and murdering Jodi Sanderholm had past allegations against him. Allegations that seemed to have gone by the wayside as Thurber was never charged. It does appear that Thurber did have run-ins with the law. When will we ever learn that a criminal element escalates their crimes until all too often it becomes murder.

An Ark City woman claims Joshua Thurber tried to abduct her niece. Loretta Caballero says last April her 11-year-old niece was held by Thurber, against her will.

According to police reports, the young girl was asked by a friend of her mom to help the friend translate a conversation with Thurber. The friend didn’t speak English very well, so the 11-year-old girl tried to help.

The girl says the woman and Thurber started fighting, and Thurber refused to take them home. Instead, he kept them in his car and drove farther away from town. The girl also says Thurber was exposing himself to both of them.

In the end, both girls jumped from the moving car, ran to a nearby home and called police.

Police showed the girl a photo lineup and she immediately picked out Thurber’s picture. (KAKE)

It always seems the case that when predators get away with lesser crimes, they are destined to do it again and escalate the violence until they get caught. We are still trying to understand how the “lewd and lascivious” behavior was allowed to go without incident.

The police reports called the case criminal restraint, endangering a child and lewd and lascivious behavior. But days and weeks went by without an arrest. To this day Thurber has never been charged with these crimes.

Cowley County Attorney Chris Smith says the case was eventually turned over to his office but there wasn’t enough evidence to file charges. It would be Mariela’s word against Thurber’s and Mariela admitted she got in his car willingly.

Joseph Edward Duncan III charged in U.S. District Court with kidnaping, Murder & Sexual Assault in Dylan and Shasta Groene case

Joseph Edward Duncan is already serving life sentences for pleading guilty to the murder of three people, Shasta’s mother, brother and a family friend. Now with this indictment, a death sentence cannot be too far down the line. Duncan has been charged with murder, kidnapping and sexual assault of Dylan and Shasta Groene. Some people truly earn the right to be executed, Joseph Edward Duncan III is part of that select group.

The indictment against Joseph Edward Duncan III, issued by a federal grand jury in Coeur d’Alene, will allow the government to seek the death penalty, U.S. Attorney Tom Moss said.

The indictment accuses Duncan of kidnapping Dylan Groene, 9, and his sister Shasta, then 8 years old, sexually abusing them both and later killing Dylan in Montana. (Yahoo News)

Convicted Murderer Indicted In Idaho Abductions

An indictment charged Duncan with kidnapping 9-year-old Dylan Groene near Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, in 2005 for the purpose of sexual assault, and for intentionally killing the boy after torturing him.

Duncan was also charged with kidnapping Shasta Groene, who was 8 at the time, for the purpose of sexually assaulting her. Shasta was rescued at a Coeur d’Alene restaurant seven weeks after her abduction.

The grand jury also charged Duncan with aggravated sexual abuse of the children and for taking them across a state line into Montana. He was also charged with making visual depictions of his sexual assaults on Dylan Groene. (KSBW8)

Federal Charges Filed Against Duncan

In charging Duncan with Kidnapping Resulting in Death, the grand jury made special findings that Duncan intentionally killed 9-year-old D.G. after substantial planning and premeditation, and that he did so in an especially heinous, cruel, and depraved manner. The grand jury also found that the child’s killing involved torture and serious physical abuse, that Duncan intentionally inflicted seriously bodily injury that resulted in death, and that he intentionally engaged in a act of violence he knew created a grave risk of death to a particularly vulnerable victim.

These special findings will allow the government to file a notice of intent to seek the death penalty, which the United States Attorney General has already authorized the government to do.

The indictment also charges Duncan with kidnapping and sexually assaulting 8-year-old S.G.

The 13-page indictment includes ten counts of criminal activity and six pages of special findings. Specifically, Count One charges Duncan with Kidnapping Resulting in Death, Count Two charges him with Kidnapping, Counts Three and Four charge him with Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Minor, and Count Five charges him with Sexual Exploitation of a Child Resulting in Death.

He is also charged with being a Felon in Possession of a Firearm, Using a Firearm During and in Relation to a Crime of Violence Resulting in Death, Transportation of a Stolen Firearm, Possession of an Unregistered Firearm and Transportation of a Stolen Vehicle.

In their special findings, the grand jury also noted Duncan’s previous convictions for rape, first-degree murder and kidnapping.

Wayne Logan Arrested for Paying Mother to have Sex with her 8 Year Old Daughter (engaged to General Sessions TN Judge Joyce Broffit)

Sixty-year-old Wayne Logan was arrested in Memphis, TN for allegedly paying the mother of an 8 year old girl to have sex with the minor. Wayne Logan is Shelby County Sheriff’s Department employee and remains in jail. Think the story is bizarre? It get even more so.

Wayne Logan is engaged to Judge Joyce Broffit, General Sessions Judge.

Logan is engaged to General Sessions Judge Joyce Broffitt and records show he used her as a reference when he got his job in the Sheriff’s Department’s records and identification office. He is on paid leave from the department while the case is pending.

Police said Logan was charged with raping an eight-year-old girl after the child picked him out of a photo lineup. (My Eye Witness News)

So the suspect is not only an employee of the Sheriff’s Department, he is also involved in a relationship with a sitting judge. No conflict of interest there. Thus, because of the ties all of the General Session judges recused themselves from the case.

Wayne Logan appeared in court yesterday for his first hearing on child rape charges, but all the General Sessions court judges in Shelby County recused themselves.

Logan’s attorney, Leslie Ballin, says the General Sessions judges agreed it would be inappropriate for them to hear the case because his fiancĂ© is a sitting General Sessions Court judge. (WMC-TV)

UPDATE: New Judge named in the Wayne Logan case.

Memphis, Tenn. (WHBQ) Former Rutherford County Judge Steven Davis has now been named to hear the case of Wayne Logan, the Shelby County worker accused of having sex with an eight-year old girl.

Shelby County Judges had asked for a visiting judge to be assigned because Logan has a relationship with Shelby County Judge Joyce Broffit.

Its is also being reported that a woman has come forward and has stated that Wayne Logan may have abused at least one more girl. However, there may be more.

The mother of the 8 year old girl is also being charged in the case and pimping her daughter to a 61 year old man.

Twenty-seven year-old Sharon Crawford is charged with accepting money in exchange for letting a man have sex with her little girl.

The story came to light when the 8 year old girl complained of pain to a teacher in school. This is just a shameful story and situation.

The police officer who arrested Crawford wrote that the 8 year-old girl first told her teacher about “pain between her legs”.

The report goes on to say “the 8 year-old victim advised the teacher that it was her mother’s friend. The victim also stated that this occurred several times and that when it does, her mother gets money. The 8 year-old victim further stated that she is made to perform oral and vaginal sex acts with her mother’s friend.” (My Eye Witness News)

Criminal Defense Attorney Larry Charles Arrested … Found Naked in Court House with 14 Year Old Girl

Larry Charles, a 49 year old defense attorney was arrested Monday after being found naked in a Court House conference room with a 14 year old girl. Charles had his law license suspended in the past for tampering with public records. Now its time to take it away for good.

Larry Charles, 49, has been charged with solicitation, attempted statutory sexual assault and related counts, said Lt. Dan Bagnell of the police department’s Special Victims Unit.

A sheriff’s deputy making his rounds in the Criminal Justice Center on Monday afternoon looked into a lawyers’ conference room on the third floor and discovered Charles and the girl, Bagnell said.

“He had asked for sex. But there was no physical contact we’re aware of” by the time the deputy arrived on the scene, Bagnell said. (Fox News)

Broadway Star James Barbour, 40, Charged with 5 Counts of Criminal Sex acts & sexual abuse against a teen

James Bardour, Broadway star known for playing the Beast in “Beauty and the Beast” has been charged with five counts of criminal sexual acts and sexual abuse of a 15 year old. Bardour pleaded not guilty to the charges that stem back to 2001.

James Barbour, 40, was charged with five counts of criminal sex acts and sexual abuse against the teen back in 2001. She came forward earlier this year before the five-year statute of limitations expired.

Assistant District Attorney Maxine Rosenthal, speaking at the hearing, said prosecutors were aware of a second case in which Barbour allegedly had sexual contact with another underage girl, in California.

If the New York case goes to trial, Rosenthal said, she will try to introduce evidence regarding the uncharged California case. She did not discuss specifics. (International Herald Tribune)

In a statement from April 2006, James Bardour states quite a different version of events. What does it say? Blames the 15 year old of course.

In a written statement signed April 4, 2006, and made public Wednesday by Rosenthal, Barbour said sexual contact with the girl, a student at the high school he attended, was initiated by her when he had dinner with her and her boyfriend.

The girl later told him she was 16 and wanted to pursue a career in theater, Barbour’s statement said.

During a subsequent telephone conversation, the statement said, Barbour asked the girl what she was thinking the night they had dinner together, “and she said ‘I was thinking I wanted to’” have sex with him.

One evening, he and the girl went to his apartment, and they lay in bed and discussed sex acts and kissed, the statement said.


The now-20-year-old woman, who is working in the theater, came forward only recently – just within the five-year statute of limitations.

Manhattan prosecutors, who are withholding her name, say she contacted authorities out of a concern that other young girls might be at risk.

Fearing there may be more victims, authorities have asked that anyone with any possible sex-assault allegations against Barbour contact prosecutors at (212) 335-9373. (NY Post)

Underage cutie and ‘The Beast’

Prosecutors charge that the girl, who was visiting from a nearby suburb, was molested backstage as her parents sat in the audience and then again at a restaurant later that night, officials said.

A month later, Barbour invited the teenager back to his upper West Side apartment and the two engaged in sex acts, officials said.

The victim, who is now 20 years old, came forward with her allegations in April. Barbour was arrested later that month released after posting bail, officials said.

A source in the Manhattan district attorney’s office said the teenager came forward earlier this year because she realized what he had done was wrong and she was concerned that he might have approached other underage girls. (NY Daily News)
