After Lassiter tossed his children into the pond Sunday night, an off duty sheriff’s deputy who lives in the complex was able to pull out Lassiter’s daughters, ages 3 and 5, and start administering CPR. Lassiter’s 7-year-old son was able to get away unharmed and run for help.
Lassiter called 911 afterwards and told the dispatcher what he had done, and why he did it. As you may have already guessed, it was everyone else’s fault but his own.
“I just drowned my two daughters in the lake back there ’cause CPS wanted to take them away from me,” he said. “I was dealing with some pedophilia things, OK, OK. I was dealing with some sexual desires that I was trying to get some help with, but instead they turned their back on me, the whole system, and tried to take my kids, and they took the rest of the, of the little happiness that I had.”
He then goes on to tell the dispatcher that chucking his children in a lake was a teaching aid that he hopes they will learn from.…
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – Justin Lawson, 22, has been arrested for the rape and murder of his girlfriend’s 2-year-old daughter.
In the early morning of September 3rd, Keah Cudjo went to school leaving her daughter, Sheleah, in the care of her boyfriend, Justin Lawson. Sheleah had been ill the night before with diarrhea and vomiting.
Not long after she left she received a call from Lawson letting her know that Sheleah had peed her pants and was shaking. Cudjo said she would come home but was told by Lawson that she didn’t need to.
A few hours later she would receive another call from Lawson saying that Sheleah was throwing up again, prompting Cudjo to leave school to check on her. When she arrived she found her little girl unresponsive.
“By the time I got here, my baby was on her back foaming at her mouth,” Keah said. “The first thing I did was ran to my baby screaming for someone to take me to the hospital.”
Lawson left before EMS arrived and transported Sheleah to Children’s Hospital where she was pronounced dead.…
BALTIMORE, MD – Jonathan Fleming is facing some serious charges after the 17-year-old was accused of raping a 9-year-old family friend at the Maryland State Fairgrounds – a girl he has allegedly been sexually abusing since she was 3-years-old.
Police said that Fleming’s family and the girl’s family were together at the Maryland State Fair when a concerned farmer notified the girl’s father that he saw Fleming doing something inappropriate with the girl inside the Swine Barn.
“There was a farmer there that actually saw him buckling up his pants and approached the two of them,” Baltimore County Police Officer Shawn Vincent. “When the boy saw that he was being approached, he left with the young girl.”
The girl’s parents called police who interviewed the girl. She told police that Fleming touched her inappropriately and then took her to a slide barn where he forced her to perform various sex acts, including intercourse. But that’s not the worst of it. According to the girl, Fleming has been sexually abusing her since she was three; forcing her to engage in sex acts several time a year at various fairs in Maryland and elsewhere.…
MINNEAPOLIS, MS – Brian Cleveland, a 54-year-old janitor at a Washington County elementary school, has been accused of raping his 12-year-old adopted daughter and amassing a large amount of child porn that was being stored on his school-issued computer.
According to reports, the girl has been living with Cleveland for the last two years after being removed from her biological parents’ care. Police began investigating Cleveland in July after the girl told Anoka County investigators that she and Cleveland had a “bad secret.”
The girl didn not want to tell investigators what that secret was because she did not want to lose another family. She would eventually tell them that Cleveland had been sexually abusing her for the entire two years she had been living in his home.
Police executed a search a warrant at Cleveland’s home and confiscated a laptop belonging to the Forest Lake School District. Cleveland was arrested on August 19, the same day a forensic analysis found someone had deleted a large amount of child porn off the laptop at around the same time Cleveland was under investigation for criminal sexual conduct.…
INDIANAPOLIS, IN – According to recently released court documents, Jared Fogle, the dead-eyed greasy lipped spokesperson for Subway, will plead guilty to allegations that he paid for sex acts with minors and received child pornography.
Last month we reported on a raid conducted on the home of Jared Fogle, in connection to a child pornography investigation involving 43-year-old Russell Taylor.
At the time of his arrest, Taylor was the director for the Jared Foundation, a foundation created by Fogle in an effort to help kids live healthy lifestyles and to put his sub in their pretty little mouths.
Taylor was arrested after investigators found more than 400 videos child pornography on his home office computers. Police also found videos taken by cameras hidden in Taylor’s home that “showed the exposed genitals or pubic area of the children.”
While Taylor was looking at a handful of child pornography related charges and an attempted suicide while in jail, Fogle was quick to distance himself from Taylor, stating he was “shocked” at the news and that he and his foundation had completely severed ties with Taylor.…
HOLLIS, OK — Jennifer Caswell, the former teacher convicted of having a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old student, was handed a 10 year prison sentence.
In April 2014, Caswell resigned from her position as an English teacher at Hollis Middle School amid allegations that she was having sexual relations with the 15-year-old student
At the time, no charges where filed because prosecutors didn’t have any real evidence anything illegal had taken place. Caswell, who was married and had a 6-year-old, wasn’t admitting to anything and the student said nothing was happening, that Caswell was just a nice teacher.
That all changed a couple months later when she got busted with the boy in a Best Western hotel room – in Mississippi. The boy was there to visit his mother, and Caswell had traveled 650 miles to meet him on the down-low.
That’s when the minor began singing and told investigators he’d had sexual contact with the teacher multiple times throughout April and May, including once in her classroom three days before she resigned.…

NASHVILLE, TN — Police have arrested 37-year-old Michael Delk for the sexual exploitation of his three-month-old daughter.
Police first started investigating Delk after getting a call that he’d smacked his wife around at the Roadway Inn motel where they both lived with their baby.
Delk was arrested and during a follow-up investigation, police were told that there were some images on Delk’s cellphone that they may be interested in.
What police found on the phone, aside from over 30 images of children engaged in sexual activity, was images of Delk having some sexy time with his baby daughter.
Delk is now in jail on $76,000 bond on charges of especially aggravated sexual exploitation of a minor and sexual exploitation of minors. Police say additional charges against Delk are anticipated.
If the allegations are true, maybe we can also anticipate fellow inmates stomping Delk’s head into mush. Or Delk’s limbs twitching against his cell floor after he hangs himself with his shirt. One can dream.…
COOPER CITY, FL – David Solomon, 47, is facing two sexual assault on a minor charges after he police say he repeatedly molested an 11-year-old boy who played on the baseball team he coached.
The boy came forward and told police that Solomon had been playing a series of games with his pecker that Solomon “The Claw” and “The Wedgie Bush.”
The boy said one incident happened in April during a sleepover at Solomon’s house and another happened during a car ride. During the sleepover, the victim said Solomon molested him about five to eight times on separate occasions.
When he finally told Solomon that he wasn’t comfortable with him grabbing his junk, Solomon told him not to tell anyone or he would break the “bro code.” The boy told his mother and she pulled him out of the baseball camp and confronted the suspect. I couldn’t find any details regarding this confrontation or why police were not called at that time.
Deputies said it wasn’t until the news leaked out that some of the victim’s former teammates told him that they too were molested by Solomon.…
LONDON – Sarah Sands, the 32-year-old woman facing a murder charge after admitting to stabbing her pedophile neighbor to death, was convicted of manslaughter.
Sands neighbor, 77-year-old Michael Pleasted, was a nasty peice of work. He was a convicted pedophile who had a history of sexually abusing young boys dating back to 1970.
He has been convicted of 24 sexual offences involving children but has only spent a little over six years total in jail. In the months before Sands gave him eight new holes to breathe from, he was facing new charges of molesting three other boys.
His trial was scheduled for this summer, and the prosecution was considering a third charge against him. That is until Sands saved everyone from a lot of time and money.
Remarkably, Pleasted was granted bail and allowed to return home while awaiting his trial. Sands, who lived across from Pleasted, wasn’t having any of it. On November 28 of last year, she drank two bottles of wine and then paid her neighbor a visit – with a kitchen knife, a hammer and and a wrench inside her purse.…
MAURY COUNTY, TN – Kenneth Faulkner was arrested after he allegedly beat the crap out of the man he accused of molesting his two young daughters, and is now looking at more time in jail than the man he beat up.
Faulker suspected his two daughter were being sexually abused by 67-year-old Thomas Williams, a man related to the children by marriage. So last December, he went to police with his suspicions.
The resulting investigation led to Williams being arrested in April and jailed on $2000 bond. In March, Williams was indicted by a grand jury on two charges of solicitation of a minor.
Last Thursday, Williams pleaded guilty to the charges and was sentenced to three years probation and must register as a sex offender. While all this was happening inside the courthouse, Faulkner and his family were outside protesting.
As you can imagine, Faulkner was not too happy to learn the man he says molested his daughters “in every way” was not going to serve one day in jail.…

When investigators interviewed the girl, she told them that while Grodin lived with her and her mother between April and June, he would use zip-ties to restrain her arms , gag her, then rape her while filming it.
“It is not believed the mother of the victim knew of these criminal acts. The mother is distraught and is working with law enforcement,” Swansea Police Chief Steve Johnson said, adding that both the mother and the victim are now in counseling.
On Thursday, Grodin was apprehended in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A search of his phone revealed numerous video clips and photos showing the girl engaged in sexual activities with Grodin.…
This early morning raid comes only a couple months after a former Jared Foundation director, 43-year-old Russell Taylor, was arrested on federal child porn charges.
The foundation was created by Jared in an effort to help kids learn to eat healthy and how to swallow down the shit they serve at Subway.
Taylor, who was looking at a handful of child pornography related charges, would attempt suicide in his Marion County Jail cell a few days later and was placed on life support. He’s dong better now, in case you are wondering, and in U.S. Marshals Service custody.
At the time, Jared released a statement in which he said he was “shocked” at the news and that he and his foundation had completely severed ties with Taylor.
Now it looks as if federal investigators have followed a lead right to Jared’s home. Investigators from the FBI, Indiana State Police and Postal Service arrived showed up there this morning and parked a mobile forensic van in his driveway.…
LAKELAND, FL – 45-year-old “school paraprofessional” Alecia Dotson was arrested Tuesday after a mother found some rather…upsetting…texts between Dotson and her 11-year-old son.
Eleven years old? HOLY SHADES OF MARY KAY LETOURNEAU, BATMAN! But wait. Do I remember this correctly? Ah, yes. Mary Kay was “only” 34 when she got busy with 12-year-old Vili.
Gary Gross, a sergeant with the Lakeland Police Department, indicated that the mother contacted police after discovering the texts between Dotson and her son. “There were approximately 100 text messages sent back and forth between the two,” Sgt. Gross said.
Did I mention that the officer’s last name is “Gross”? Were this a bit of fiction I was crafting, that would be called “foreshadowing.”
Once police began investigating, they had access to the boy’s phone, during which time Dotson sent texts saying “Love bug what are you doing” and “I’ll be sure to tell her we won’t have sex on the first visit…LOL.”
On Tuesday, she sent another text asking, “Are you awake love bug?” Unaware she was now communicating with law enforcement officers instead of a prepubescent boy, she arranged a meeting the boy at a local cinema for a bit of something that did not involve watching a movie.…
L’Naya was brought to the hospital Friday morning suffering from blunt force trauma and a brain bleed. Houchin, a friend of the girl’s mother who was babysitting the girl that morning, said the girl was injured after falling off a couch..
Medical staff determined that the girl’s injuries were more consistent with shaken baby syndrome. A couch also didn’t explain how the baby ended up raped. When police interviewed Houchin he admitted that he’d shaken the girl several times.
After speaking with him and medical staff, police took Houchin into custody on charges of first degree rape and child abuse. After autopsy results ruled the death of L’Naya a homicide, police would also charge Houchin with second-degree murder.
On Tuesday morning, a judge agreed with prosecutors that Houchin should remain behind bars before his court date, and set his cash only bond at $5 million. Houchin reportedly cried like a bay during his initial appearance in court, mumbling “I’m sorry” at the conclusion of his hearing.…
Investigators say they were called to a home were a woman told them she had found Absher in her bedroom with four children. She said he was forcibly holding one of the kids and his dick was hanging out.
She told police she became enraged and used a pool cue to beat him out of the house and out to the road. That’s were Absher was able to make his escape.
“He was able to stop a passerby saying ‘this woman was crazy.’ Not knowing what had just occurred and that guy takes him away from the scene,” said Sheriff McKinney.
When police interviewed the children, a 6-year-old girl told them that “the bad guy” had choked her with his “bad spot” and made her perform oral sex.
Police would quickly apprehend Absher and place him in custody. Absher is not unknown to police.…

According to the Normandy Park Police Department, the man walked into a classroom at Kid’s Country childcare on June 5 and found Moore, a 31-year-old teacher at the center, crouched behind a bookshelf with his daughter. Moore allegedly told the father he was just having a “tickle fight” with the girl.

When police interviewed Moore, he allegedly admitted that he touched the girl beneath her underwear but that it was accidental. I’m willing to give people the benefit of the doubt in cases like this, but I it’s hard for me believe anyone would find themselves accidentally knuckle-deep inside a 5-year-old girl.…
