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.
If its a school story, it must be another teacher-student sexual exploitation case. 23 year 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.
Michael Devlin, the suspected kidnapper of child molester of Ben Ownby and Shawn Hornbeck was indicted today by a Federal Grand Jury.
Read the indictment HERE.
Devlin is being charged with four felony counts of production of child pornography and two felony counts of transportation of a minor for a criminal sex act, U.S. Attorney Catherine L. Hanaway of the Eastern District of Missouri announced.
“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.”
It had been reported early on in the investigation that child pornography was found on Devlin’s computer. However, not much had been said since.
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.
46 year old Ronald Evan Mays was found guilty of sexually molesting and sexually touching an 8 year old girl who was sitting next to him. The abuse took place aboard a South West flight from Tampa, FL to Nashville, TN.
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — A businessman was convicted Friday in federal court of sexually touching an 8-year-old girl who was sitting next to him on an airplane.
Ronald Evan Mays, 46, was found guilty of abusive sexual contact with a child, assault and obstruction of justice. He faces up to 25 years in prison.
May’s attorney tried to claim that it was another man that was sitting in an unassigned seat that committed the abuse; however, both the 8 year old girl and separate passenger picked Mays out of a line up.
Prosecutors said Mays also used a software program to destroy files on his computer after the government had requested it. Some files were recovered and show scenes of child pornography, prosecutors said.
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)
William Lorenzo Page, 23, the father of Nyia Miangel Page whose body was found Sunday at an abandoned playground was charged with criminal homicide, kidnapping, false reports and simple assault.
A man angry his toddler daughter wouldn’t go to bed knocked her unconscious and left her to die outside in single-digit temperatures, police said.
The frozen body of Nyia Miangel Page, who was about to turn 2, was found Sunday at an abandoned playground about a 10-minute walk from the family’s home. Tiny footprints in the snow suggest she had gotten up and wandered around before she died, police said. (AP)
William Lorenzo Page was in jail on unrelated charges. Those charges consisted sexually abusing another child shortly before Nyia died. What a piece of human garbage this one is.
The sexual abuse charge against Page came as police investigated Nyia’s disappearance.
Police said another child in the house told investigators that sometime overnight Friday, Page entered a bedroom, covered the child’s mouth with one hand and touched the child’s genitals with the other. The child said Page then left the room, followed by Nyia, police said.
