42 Year Old Thailand Sex Offender Person of Interest in Missing Zina Linnik Case

12 year old Zina Linnik has been missing since the evening of July 4, 2007 when she Zina Linnikwas abducted from her Tacoma, WA home by an Asian looking man in an older gray van. A 42 year old sex offender is being held as a person of interest in the disappearance of Zinna Linnik.

The person of interest is a 42-year-old sex offender from Thailand. He’s currently being held for failing to register for an immigration violation and denies any involvement in Zina’s disappearance.

A search warrant reports investigators on Monday found a girl’s undergarments at his home, where he lives alone. He responded to that news by saying he was remodeling the home for his sister.

Investigators also seized a gray van to search for evidence, and the man admitted he had recently changed the license plate. (FOX News)

According to reports, a tip has lead investigators to the Tiger Mountain area where they are presently searching. It appears that the tip to search this area did not come from the man in custody.

Kent A. Proffit Sr.Convcited on 8 Counts of sexual assault Against Teen

Kent A. Proffit Sr. was convicted on all 8 counts of sexual assault against 16 year old Bryce Chavers. The would be witness and victim, Bryce Chavers was later found shot to death in his bed prior to the original trial for Kent A. Profit Sr.

Proffit was scheduled to go to trial in late 2005 on those charges, but the trial was postponed when Bryce Chavers, 16, was found shot to death in his bed. Authorities initially described Chavers as a witness, but eventually revealed that Chavers was the victim in the sexual assault case.

Proffit, the ex-husband of Chavers’ mother, was sentenced earlier this year to life without parole after he was convicted of conspiracy to commit first-degree murder for ordering three other teens to kill Chavers. He also was sentenced for the murder of Jeremy Forquer, 19, whom he also ordered killed. (AP)

Rachel L. Holt, 35, Pleads Guilty to Second degree Rape for Sex with 13 Year Old Boy

35 year old Rachel Holt is charge with raping a 13 year old boy 28 times. She was sentenced to a maximum of 25 years for the offense. Holt’s defense attorney complained that the sentence was too long as compared to other such cases. Maybe that’s part of the problem Mr. Defense attorney. If harsher sentences were handed down to teachers that committed these acts maybe it would act as a deterrent.

Holt’s attorney, John S. Malik, said the sentence was much longer than what teachers convicted in similar cases got. He reviewed 40 such cases and found the average was 18 months to two years.

In her brief comments to the court, Holt apologized “to everyone who suffered” as a result of her actions, including the victim and his family.

“I hope you can forgive me,” she said. “I know what I did was wrong.” (FOX News)

Danielle Cramer, Missing for 1 year Found in Home in room under Stairway

15 year old Danielle Cramer had been missing since June 14, 2006. Danielle Cramer was discovered by police in the home of an acquaintance of her parents. It would appear that Danielle Cramer was locked in a small room underneath the stairs.

(Danielle Cramer)

Police from Bloomfield went to the home of an acquaintance of her parents with search warrants and to obtain DNA, and found the girl; she was locked in a tiny, 3-foot-tall, 4- or 5-feet-deep room under a staircase, blocked by a dresser, reports the Associated Press.

Her parents had not seen or heard from her in the year in which she was gone, no one around the neighborhood had seen her; there was no indication that anyone had, anyway, and the girl was quite pale. It is probable that she’d been indoors for a long time.

Adam Gault and Ann Murphy were arrested by police and taken in for further questioning.

Authorities have yet to say exactly what Cramer may have been subjected to during her time in captivity. Gault has been charged with unlawful restraint, reckless endangerment, and custodial interference, and is being held on bond. Murphy is facing conspiracy and risk of injury charges.

Captive Teen Found Under Hidden Staircase A Yr. After She Disappeared

An incredible story of terror and survival has led to the freedom of a long missing 15-year-old girl in the U.S. Danielle Cramer disappeared from her West Hartford, Connecticut home in June 2006, and authorities had been searching for her ever since. Many had given up hope she was still alive. But incredibly on Wednesday, they found her safe in a place no one ever thought to look – a locked space hidden under a stairwell in a couple’s West Bloomfield home.

UPDATE I: Video Trove Of Porn: Sexual Material Reportedly Found On Tapes Seized From Man Charged With Holding Girl

This bizarre story just got even more strange as the man accused of imprisoning a 15 year old girl is now found with a treasure trove of homemade porn. However, Bloomfield police are disputing the information, saying that they don’t yet know what is on videotapes seized from Adam Gault’s home.

Police have found homemade pornography on videos seized from a man charged with unlawfully keeping a teenage girl from her family for a year, a law enforcement source close to the investigation said.

The source said investigators are trying to determine the identities of a number of girls in the videos, which are of poor quality and were apparently posted on the Internet at various times. Adam Gault, a West Hartford dog trainer, is charged in the disappearance of 15-year-old Danielle Cramer of Bloomfield.

Danielle has told authorities that Gault was using her for Internet sex shows and modeling. It was not clear whether Gault, 41, participated in the shows. (The Hartford Courant)


Adam Gault, 41, had a collection of grainy videos – some of which were posted on the Internet – that featured various young girls who have yet to be identified, sources told The Hartford Courant.

The videos were taken at Gault’s home, sources said.

Gault has been held on $1 million bond since Wednesday, when cops found Danielle Cramer, 15, locked in a secret room under a staircase.

Gault’s common-law wife Ann Murphy and a friend, Kimberly Cray, are also in custody.

UPDATE II: Just Like a Typical Defense Attorney … States Clients were only Harboring 15 year old Against Abusive Parents.

So these people were saving her from abusive parents and exploiting her to do porn on the internet? Isn’t that rich.

The parents’ attorney, Marc Needelman, also dismissed as “a total fabrication” defense claims that the girl had been abused at her own home and that she had found a safe haven in the home of Adam Gault, a 41-year-old man who had once worked with her stepfather. Police also have contested the claims.

“The Bloomfield police department has been involved in the investigation for over a year. They publicly stated yesterday in no uncertain terms that (the girl’s parents) have absolutely no responsibility, have committed no crimes or engaged in any improprieties,” Needelman said. (Houston Chronicle)

UPDATE III: Police Dispute Attorney’s Claim That Suspects Offered Safe Haven to Girl Who Disappeared

UPDATE IV: Accused kidnapper may have more victims

Charles Bickerstaff, 56, Ex-Boy Scout Official Charges with 4 Counts of Sexual Assault

Ex-Boy Scout official, Charles Bickerstaff, has been charged with 4 counts of criminal sexual abuse and 4 counts of criminal sexual assault. He is accused of sexually assaulting a 16 year old boy.

DIXON, Ill. (AP) — A former regional Boy Scout official has been charged with sexually assaulting a 16-year-old Scout at least four times since July.

Charles Bickerstaff, 56, of Dixon, was charged with four counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and four counts of criminal sexual assault, Lee County Correctional Officer Larry Schremp said Sunday. Bail was set at $2.5 million at a hearing Friday, and Bickerstaff remained in custody Sunday.

Bickerstaff retired last year as district executive for the Blackhawk Area Council, covering northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin, of the Boy Scouts of America. He recruited and trained volunteers and helped organize fundraisers.

The boy alerted authorities to the alleged abuse in late April, and investigators discovered journals in Bickerstaff’s house that detailed facts supporting the boy’s account, Lee County Detective Sgt. David Glessner said.

Is this Junior girl in a bikini Giorgio Armani advertisements Appropriate? Hardly.

What is Giorgio Armani thinking with this junior ad? The following ad is taking all kinds of fire in Spain. This coming on the foot heals of a previous ad having to be pulled. What is wrong with these people? If you have to ask whether one thinks the ad is inappropriate … the answer is yes.


The advertisement shows a little girl in a bikini. The decision was taken a few days after Dolce & Gabbana was forced to pull an image from Spain showing a woman pinned to the ground by a man as other men looked on.

A Giorgio Armani advertisement showing a little girl in a bikini has drawn the attention of Spanish authorities who are debating whether it depicts a child in an improperly sexual manner.

The Madrid regional government’s child protection chief said on Monday he would ask the advertising industry self-regulator to consider whether the image visible on the Italian fashion house’s Web site ( should be withdrawn.

Chilling … 60,000 Sexual Predators Missing in the United States

It is paramount that we know the location where sex offenders live in the United States. All too often we let these predators slip through the crack and melt into society, only to offend again. It should be mandatory upon their sentencing and parole that they “must” register. This is and should never be an option. More attention should be given to sexual predators as its only a matter of time before they strike again and escalate the assaults.

Annual registration is required for 10 years for people convicted of kidnapping, luring a child, indecent assault, incest and promotion of a child for prostitution and six similar crimes.
Rape convictions and convictions for eight other types of crime, including those convicted of a sex crime while classified as a sex offender, are sexually violent predators who must report quarterly to state police for life.

Offenders must file a report with state police within 48 hours after changing their address, workplace or school they are attending, or after leaving prison.

Sexual offenders moving into the state or leaving the state must notify state police within 48 hours. (Daily Courier)

Why do we let sex offenders off the hook? Their movement from state to state falls under the radar when they fail to re-register in their new locality. It is obvious that not having an updates registry can lead to tragedy. We need to look no further than the heinous abduction, rape and murder of Jessica Lunsford. We need to know where these people are. It is not about their rights. This is about the rights of innocent and unsuspecting children. Innocent people’s rights should not be trampled by animals.

States don’t know where to find at least 60,000 sexual predators because the offenders fail to report their address to police, a national children’s advocate said.

There is no doubt that sex predators non-compliance in registering should be considered a felony. Non-registration should result in a trip back to prison, no questions asked. A sex predator’s non-registration should be considered intent to commit another act. It is actually shocking the number of states who just seem not to care about protecting children and adults against sex predators. What are these politicians thinking? Are they pandering to the sex predator vote?

Unlike Pennsylvania, where noncompliance is a felony, there are 25 states where it’s a misdemeanor. Allen notes there are about 26,500 offenders in Ohio, 24,000 in New York and 11,000 in New Jersey.

Pennsylvania notifies neighbors when a violent predator moves in or enrolls in a college or university after serving a prison sentence. Some states rely on offenders to do that, Allen said.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children estimate there are a staggering 603,000 registered sex offenders in the US. There is at least another 100,000 that are non-compliant. A new Special Analysis Unit has been created by NCMEC
to search databases, analyze information, and help identify and locate
these fugitives.

The question remains as to why so many states do not take sexual predators serious. Why have they not passed harsher penalties for those that have offended? Especially when they know there is such a high percentage of those that will repeat and in doing so trying to hide from their past actions by not registering. The following state laws are a disappointment, to say the least.

There are 25 states where noncompliance with one or more registration duties may be treated as only a misdemeanor: Alaska, California, Colorado, District of Columbia, Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin.

  • In four states, when a sex offender moves from one state to another state, the responsibility to notify the new state is placed solely on the offender himself: Delaware, District of Columbia, Kansas, and Utah.
  • In eight states, the law is ambiguous as to whether the state or the sex offender must notify a new state when the offender moves: California, Kentucky, Montana, New Jersey, North Dakota, South Carolina, South Dakota and Tennessee.
  • In only seven states, when a sex offender fails to register, it is mandatory for parole to be revoked and the sex offender to be returned to prison: California, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Michigan, North Dakota, and West Virginia. (NCMEC)

In July of 2006, Congress passed the Adam Walsh Child Protection and
Safety Act.
Politicians, stop dragging your heals. This is about protecting the publics safety and children. This is nothing to politicize. This is problem that needs to be addressed NOW! When dealing with sex predators, you are either with us or against us. There is no middle ground.

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.

“This is by far the worst thing we have seen,” Hanaway said. “This minor, over the course of five years, had child pornography produced with them as the victim, was taken across state lines so sex crimes could be committed against them.”

Previous charges filed against Michel Devlin.

The indictment states the following:

The indictment alleges that between October 2002 and July 2003, Devlin photographed a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct. Additionally, the indictment charges that between July 2003 and January 2007, Devlin videotaped a minor engaging in sexually explicit conduct. In February 2004, Devlin allegedly took a minor to Illinois with the intent to engage in criminal sexual assault. Devlin is also charged with taking a minor to Arizona between June 20 and July 3, 2004, with the intent to engage in sexual assault. (FOX News)

Honestly, Michael Devlin can not be sent away long enough.

If convicted on the first pornography count, Devlin could receive 10 to 20 years in prison and/or fines up to $250,000. Some other counts each carry a penalty range of 15 to 30 years in prison and/or fines of up to $250,000, while those involving transportation for purpose of criminal sex acts, carry a range of five years to 30 years prison and/or fines up to $250,000, per count.

Attorney Philip Russell, 48, Charged with Obstructing Justice & Destroying Evidence in Robert F. Tate Child Porn Case

A prominent 48 year old attorney Philip Russell has been charged with obstructing Legal-servicesjustice and destroying evidence in the Robert F. Tate/Christ Church of Greenwich, CT child porn scandal.

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP)  A prominent defense attorney was accused of destroying a computer containing child pornography that belonged to his client, a former church music director, according to an indictment unsealed Friday.

Philip Russell has pleaded not guilty to the charges; however, the indictments reads as follows. Russell faces up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $250,000 on each count.

The indictment says Russell destroyed a laptop computer Oct. 9 containing child pornography that was owned by Robert F. Tate, the former music director at Christ Church in Greenwich, where the former President George H.W. Bush once worshipped.Tate pleaded guilty in January to possessing child pornography.

A church employee discovered images of naked boys on Oct. 7 while using Tate’s computer, according to the indictment. A day later, church officials sealed and wrapped Tate’s laptop, treating it as evidence, authorities said.

Russell took Tate’s computer and, after learning it contained images of naked boys, “altered, destroyed, mutilated and concealed it by taking it apart,” according to the indictment.

Lawyer indicted in child porn case: Feds charge Russell took church computer, destroyed evidence

Church officials sealed and wrapped Tate’s laptop, treating it as evidence, according to the indictment. But on Oct. 9, Russell took the computer, the indictment alleges.

Also on Oct. 9 church officials and Russell allowed Tate to pack a bag, in which he put some of the child pornography and discarded the bag, according to the indictment.

Tate resigned and Russell and church officials arranged for him to travel to California, where he was ultimately arrested, according to the indictment.

“The exploitation of children is a serious offense that this office will fully prosecute,” said U.S. Attorney Kevin O’Connor. “Those who possess child pornography or hinder the prosecution of those who do by destroying evidence and impeding investigations will be prosecuted, particularly when the obstructionists are attorneys and officers of the court.” (Greenwich Times)
