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.

UPDATE I: Police believe missing Gilbert woman killed during rape by Jonathan Burns

Police believe that ex-convict Jonathan Burns raped and murdered Jackie Hartman. Burns has been arrested on charges of sexual assault in the case. Just another case of a predator on the loose and an unsuspecting victim in the wrong place at the wrong time. Can we brand ex-cons to let people know who and what they are dealing with at this point? Jackie Hartman’s clothes, including a bloody shirt, bra and panties near Burn’s home.

Jonathan Ian Burns/Jackie Hartman

Hartman was last seen with Burns at about 2 a.m. Sunday, and was supposed to meet her sister about three hours later. While being questioned by police, Burns admitted having sex with her and said he dropped her off about 5 a.m. and went home, according to the probable cause statement.

But cell phone records show he drove north on Highway 87 during that time and was unaccounted for between 5 a.m. and 11 a.m. Sunday, the court record shows. Officers searching near his apartment found Hartman’s purse, sandals, shirt, bra and panties in a trash bin near Burns’ home.

The shirt and bra were ripped in half, and there were what appeared to be bullet holes in the bloody shirt, officers wrote. (KVOA News 4)

UPDATE II: Arrest linked to missing woman

It has literally gotten to the point that back ground checks are needed before girls go out on dates. What a sad story and rather heinous act that this ex-con committed.

A 25-year-old felon has been arrested on suspicion of sexual assault after police found a missing Gilbert woman’s bullet-ridden, torn clothing in a dumpster near his home, according to court documents.

Burns spent more than seven years in Arizona prisons on convictions of burglary, promoting prison contraband and an arson offense, according to the Arizona Department of Corrections Web site.

Duncan said police believe Hartman and Burns were acquaintances, although details of how they met were sketchy. “We are still looking for Jackie,” Duncan said. (AZ Central)
According to her family, Jacquelan “Jackie” Hartman, 19, was on her first date when she was reported missing early Sunday morning.

UPDATE III: Missing Gilbert woman, Jacquelan “Jackie” Hartman, met man at gas station

The man suspected of kidnapping and raping a missing Gilbert woman met her at a gas station days before her disappearance, said Daniel Smith, 20, who works at Banner Baywood Hospital with the 19-year-old woman.

“She didn’t know what she was getting herself into,” Smith said. (East Valley Tribune)

UPDATE IV: Police seek missing woman’s clothing

Police are asking for the public’s help locating clothing last worn by a missing 19-year-old Gilbert woman as they work this weekend to find her.
the public’s help is needed in locating the tan sweater and blue jeans, which could be anywhere from Chandler, where other evidence was found, to Sunflower, Ruet said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Gilbert police at (480) 503-6500 (AZ Central)

UPDATE V: Search continues for missing Gilbert teen

The search continues for the 19 year old missing nursing school student Jackie Hartman. Volunteers and authorities alike helped in the search for Jackie.

Hundreds of volunteers and police continue to scour the desert northeast of metro Phoenix in search of a 19-year-old nursing student, who is thought to have been brutally raped and murdered.
Volunteers picked through the prickly pear and mesquite on foot, horseback, ATVs and dirt bikes Saturday in search of Jackie Hartman of Gilbert.

Police believe Hartmans body may have been dumped in the wilderness between Fountain Hills and Payson, where Burns used his cell phone within a few hours of Hartmans disappearance.
Because of the uncertainty about whether Hartman is alive, police sent two types of K-9 units Saturday: tracking dogs to sniff for her scent, and cadaver dogs to scout for decomposition.
“We’ll be here as long as it takes, or until sundown,” said Barbara Markley, a former corrections officer from Florence. She and Amy Wells, of Mesa, headed out on foot, planning to “think like criminals.”

Some 50 officers from Gilbert and Chandler police departments, the Maricopa County Sheriffs Office, the Department of Public Safety and the Arizona Game and Fish Department joined 100 trained volunteers from Sheriff Joe Arpaios posse to begin a highly coordinated search for Hartman at 6:30 a.m. Saturday.

UPDATE VI: No searches planned today for missing Gilbert woman

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)

Sexual Assault of Teenager Aboard the P&O cruise ship, Pacific Star

Another incident has happened aboard a cruise ship. This time there is a reported rape of a teenager aboard the P&O cruise ship, Pacific Star.

A teenage girl has told police she was raped aboard the P&O cruise ship, Pacific Star after a party on board the ship on Wednesday night. The company says it is fully cooperating with an investigation, but the family of another victim is demanding action to stop it happening again. It has been 4 years since Dianne Brimble’s body was found, lying on a cabin floor of the Pacific Sky and since then, her ex-husband Mark has been fighting for justice and to make cruise ships safe.

These types of incidents just seem to continue over and over. Yes, cruise ships are like floating cities; however, one does not expect to pay for a vacation and be surrounded by a criminal element that would harm, rape or rob them.

Now, a teenage girl has claimed she was raped by an older man, while two of his mates watched after a night of partying and drinking. The young victim tried to jump overboard after the alleged attack. Mr Brimble said: “Incidents like this can and will continue to happen on cruise liners as they continue to sail around the world.” (Yahoo News)

A TEENAGE girl has alleged she was raped onboard a P&O cruise ship, sparking a major police investigation

Six detectives boarded the Pacific Star as it cruised along the Queensland coast on Friday after the girl, 16, claimed she was assaulted in a cabin in front of two other men. Plainclothes officers took a New South Wales man, 23, off the ship in handcuffs when it docked in Brisbane yesterday and charged him with possession of a dangerous drug, believed to be ecstasy. Police would not comment on whether the man was linked to the sex assault allegations. “Police can confirm they have investigated allegations of a sexual assault of a teenage girl on board a P&O Cruise vessel,” a spokesman said. (Adelaide Now)

UPDATE: Cruise rape claim: Queensland police won’t lay charges

Police will lay no charges over an alleged rape of a teenager on P&O’s Pacific Star. “The matter has been thoroughly investigated by detectives and there is no evidence to substantiate any charges being laid in relation to the sexual assault allegation,” a spokesman for Queensland police said. “If further information came up it would be investigated.” (The West Australian)

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)

Justin Thurber Charged with the Capital Murder & Rape of Jodi Sanderholm

It had been speculated for quite some time that the individual in custody on an unrelated charge, Justin Thurber, was the main suspect in the murder of Jodi Sanderholm. Today the Kansas AG has charged Justin Thurber with the rape and murder of Jodi Leann Sanderholm.

Kansas Attorney General Paul Morrison and Cowley County Attorney Christopher Smith today filed charges against Justin Eugene Thurber for the murder of Jodi Leann Sanderholm. Thurber has been charged with Capital Murder, Rape and Aggravated Kidnapping.

Authorities believe Thurber kidnapped Sanderholm following her dance practice on Friday, January 5th. According to police, he then drove her to a rural part of southeast Cowley County where she was raped and murdered. Police also allege that Thurber then disposed of Sanderholm’s car in the Cowley County State Fishing Lake. (KWCH)

Charges announced in Jodi Sanderholm case

The evidence shows Sanderholm was kidnapped at midday Jan. 5, raped and strangled within about three hours, Morrison said.

Authorities had said last week they were preparing charges against a suspect already in the Cowley County Jail on unrelated charges.

Thurber was taken into custody the weekend Sanderholm disappeared. (Kansas

Justin Thurber seems to have quite the frequent issue when it comes to breaking the law.

On Jan. 1, Thurber was charged with false impersonation and disorderly conduct. Thurber has also been charged with burglary, forgery, theft and drug possession.

Two women have also accused Thurber of stalking and have filed protection petitions in Winfield and Arkansas City.

Lemaricus Davidson

3 men in custody after Tennessee couple found dead

Federal agents and Knox County officers raided a house Thursday in Lebanon, Ky., about 180 miles north of Knoxville, where they believed the suspects had family.

Two men were detained, Letalvis Cobbins, 24, and a friend, George Thomas. Thomas was being questioned late Thursday, while Cobbins faced federal charges of being a felon in possession of a weapon, Knighten said.

Cobbins, wanted as a “person of interest” in the deaths, had a gun authorities believe may have been used in the crime, Knighten said.

Meanwhile, Cobbins’ brother Lemaricus Davidson, 25, was picked up at an empty house in Knoxville around 3:30 p.m. EST. Also considered a “person of interest” in the case, a weeping Davidson offered no resistance, Knoxville police spokesman Darrell DeBusk said.

Christian’s body was found Tuesday in a house rented by Davidson, authorities said. (WKRN)

Marshal: Man shot, burned; woman raped

How bad must the sexual assault have been that the Marshal would actually make a point to reference what these 3 animals did? What a senseless act of depravity. There is no punishment that is bad enough for these 3 suspects, if they are convicted of the crimes they appear to have committed.

“They did some really nasty things to this lady,” Knighten said.

Newsom was shot and his body burned, Knighten said. He said he didn’t know how Christian died. (KnoxNews)

UPDATE: 4th Suspect, Eric Boyd, Arrested in the Deaths of Christopher Newsom and Channon Christian

Knoxville police confirm that four men were charged Friday in the carjacking of Chris Newsom and Channon Christian.

Lemarcus Davidson, Latalvus Cobbins and George Thomas were charged with carjacking in federal court. A fourth man, identified as Eric Boyd, has been charged as an accessory after the fact. (WBIR)

US District Judge Susan Illston Block Law Passed By California Voters Against Sex Offenders

One day after the voters, WE THE PEOPLE”, of California passed Proposition 83 on a Prop8370.5% to 29.5% in Tuesday’s election, US District Judge Susan Illston blocked the law. She stated, “the measure is overly punitive and prevented it from going into effect.”

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. (Yahoo News)

Read Proposition 83 for yourself and see if you agree with it.

Ad on Prop 83  from YouTube

Ever think elections do not matter? Guess who appointed US District Judge Susan Illston?

Once again, Liberal judges defending sex offenders over our children. If its not bad enough we have judges not sentencing sex offenders to jail time because they are too short or only giving convicted sex offender mere months, we now have judges blocking laws that would protect children. Instead we have judges that think the answer is to have convicted sex offenders wear t-shirts that state, “I am a sex offender”. What the hell is this country coming to?

Judicial legislation is out of control and must be stopped. By an overwhelming 70.5% this proposition passes in CA. It is not as though California is a conservative, red state. Even the common sense voters of California know that they must protect themselves and their children from sexual predators. Its too bad the liberal judges wish to protect the sex offender.

It is amazing how the democratic process in this country is constantly undermined by judges with an agenda. The response from Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger’s legal affairs secretary was as follows:

“The voters have spoken and the governor will vigorously defend the lawsuit so the implementation of this vital measure can go forward to protect Californians against the lewd acts of convicted felons,” Hoch said in a statement.

 This judicial activism and interference has got to end. This has nothing to do with politics and a Republican or Democratic issue. This is about our children … something that all of us can agree on his a common ideal, “We the People” can all stand for.
