Milwaukie, OR – Thomas Lee Benson, a registered sex offender, was arrested Friday after police say he dressed as a woman in order to enter the girl’s changing room at the North Clackamas Aquatic Park. Deputies say Benson was also seen engaging in conversation with several young children at the busy center.
Tayo Cotton, a 26-year-old man who was supervising a summer field trip at the pool, told deputies that he and a co-worker saw a bikini-clad Benson walking in and out of the locker room and knew something was “off”. Not only was the not-so-feminine-looking Benson rockin’ a teeny bikini, he was also wearing lipstick and eyeliner.
“You could tell he was wearing makeup,” Cotton said. “He tried to make himself look really feminine.”
The next time Cotton spotted Benson, the perv was walking out of the men’s changing room, dressed in a tank top and shorts. As Cotton approached Benson to find out what was up, Benson took off running. Cotton was right on his heels.
Cotton told police he saw Benson try to open several car doors during the foot chase, and that Benson eventually found a vehicle with an unlocked door and opened it, scaring the beejesus out of the woman sitting inside.…Continue Reading
Palmerton, PA — Timothy Shelly, a registered sex offender, pleaded guilty in court Thursday to four counts of indecent exposure. The man obviously can’t keep it in his pants – police say has admitted to exposing himself nearly 100 times in area stores.
On September 11, police received a report of a man exposing himself at a K-Mart store. The store security guard told police the man had followed a young girl though the store, exposed himself to her and may have touched her.
When the 10-year-old victim was interviewed, she told police she was looking at birthday cards when the man approached her with his package out. The girl said she tried to move away from him, but he followed her and bumped against her. She ran to her mother and security was alerted.
Shelly reportedly told police he goes to a store such as K-Mart or Target, finds a girl he likes and exposes himself. He said he sometimes brushes against ‘em. He didn’t remember if he actually touched the 10-year-old, but said he probably did.…Continue Reading
Chicago, IL – Convicted sex offender Tyrone Hill, 37, was arrested Saturday morning after he attemped to abduct a 2-year-old boy at Chicago’s North Avenue Beach. The boy’s father pulled his son to safety and notified police, who caught Hill before he was able to leave.
Armando Uvalle said Hill’s attempted abduction of his 2-year-old son, Isaiah, happened ‘in an instant’ and while his son was next to him. Uvalle told news reporters that Hill “just came out of nowhere and grabbed my kid.”
Uvalle said he pulled his son away and the man walked away. Uvalle said the whole process took seconds.
The father said he immediately went to an officer on beach patrol and explained what happened. That officer then put a flash message out via police computer, alerting all officers nearby with the description of the suspect: an African-American man carrying several bags, wearing a black shirt with a white logo and black pants.
Two other officers assigned to beach duty reportedly heard the alert on the radio and saw the man matching the description nearby.…Continue Reading
A police officer investigating a vacant rental car parked near in a beach parking lot heard a gunshot moments after his arrival. At a nearby picnic bench, the officer found (what was left of) 60 year-old Jerry Wayne Steele. Steele had shot himself in the head and died as a result.
Just hours prior to this, Steele had allegedly showed up at the trailer home Ashley Volore shared with her 14 year-old daughter, and shot both of them in the head. He then fled the residence he had driven some 400 miles to get to, a trailer the pair had moved to in hopes of never having to see Steele again.
On Monday, prosecutors and Steele’s attorney had reached a settlement related to 7 felony counts against him involving molestation of the girl over a 4 year period. The abuse came to light only after Steele held a razor to the girl’s throat, which scared her enough to call her father and spill the beans.…Continue Reading
REFUGIO, TX — Investigators are reporting that a convicted sex offender has died while in the middle of raping a 77-year-old woman in her home.
Isabel Chavelo Gutierrez is a registered sex offender on parole after serving time on charges of aggravated sexual assault and indecency with a 7-year-old child. Sgt. Gary Wright says on June 2, this garbage rode two miles on a bicycle from his home to the home of an elderly woman.
After sneaking into the her home, he began raping her at knifepoint. Sometime during the rape, Gutierrez stopped suddenly and told his victim he wasn’t feeling well before rolling over unconscious. She took this time to leave and call for help.
When authorities arrived at her home, they found Gutierrez dead from an apparent heart attack. The woman did not know Gutierrez personally, but says she remembered seeing him at the post office the day before.
You know what would have been nice? If the God some people are currently crediting with killing this man could have done that woman a solid and killed his ass sometime before he completed his two mile bicycle ride to her home.…Continue Reading
The arrest report describes the female bartender telling deputies that “most days, Black shows up [at the Legion] with his 31-year-old daughter at 9 a.m. and they stay until 11 p.m. She said the daughter wears disposable diapers and Black never brings extra or changes them. She said he sits her down in another room, and then sits at the bar and drinks.”
The bartender called police after Black yelled at and struck his daughter for eating a sandwich that he had made for himself and stepped away from. When Black returned and discovered his daughter eating the sandwich, he reportedly became enraged. According to the arrest report, Black yelled at her and slapped her in the back of her head before leaving with her.
Deputies located Black and his daughter at his home. She reportedly had abrasions all over her chin and both knees.…Continue Reading
Wyoming, PA — You’ll have to forgive my tardiness this morning, but it took me damn near a half-hour to figure out that there was a town called ‘Wyoming’ in the state of Pennsylvania. This makes a lot more sense than state police from halfway across the country arresting some creep way out of their jurisdiction. The entire state of Pennsylvania can kiss my ass.
Of course there’s a point here, and I’m getting to it. The town of Wyoming is home to a state police barracks, and it was these state police that ultimately questioned a 13 year-old girl about an incident called in by her great-grandmother. Seems Granny wandered into the girl’s bedroom to find a naked, much older man. He apparently said his name was ‘A.J.’, that he was from Berwick and asked her not to call the cops. The pair ran and it seems Granny didn’t listen.
The girl was picked up by state police from Tunkhannock and transferred to state police in Wyoming (the town) after a family friend had called the victim’s father to state she was there.…Continue Reading
Lacey, WA – On Thursday afternoon a 16 year-old girl was walking a well-worn path through a park near her home. She passed a man, sitting cross-legged on the ground, who did not acknowledge her presence…until about ten seconds after she passed him, at which point he apparently struck her in the back of the head, knocking her to the ground.
The man reportedly tried to pin her to the ground, but much to his surprise she unleashed a Tasmanian Devil-style flurry of punches and kicks, even biting his fingers at one point, which was enough to stun him so she could run away. She even gave him an extra boot to the face on her way.
A suspect was identified by way of a wallet found at the scene, a wallet belonging to a level 2 sex-offender. 40 year-old Kevin James Stark was later arrested at his mother’s house, where police brought the victim, who said she was “absolutely positive that Stark was the man” who assaulted her. The police report states Stark was bleeding from his fingers in conjunction with the girl’s story.…Continue Reading
Minneapolis, MN — On March 17, a 53-year-old man cleverly disguised as an elementary school student boarded a school bus filled with real elementary school students and proceeded to make sweet, sweet love to one of the seats. Rawr.
After a month-long investigation, police have finally arrested the alleged seat sticker…his name is Michael Friedrichs and he’s a Level 3 predatory offender.
Police say it went a little something like this….
Friedrichs, who stands about 5’11″ and weighs in at 187 pounds, boarded the bus that morning with a hooded sweatshirt pulled up over his head and a backpack shielding his face. The driver, who normally picked up a student at that stop, “did not think anything was out of the ordinary,” and continued on his route.
Friedrichs’ clever disguise may have fooled the bus driver, but one of the students on the bus wasn’t fooled…she later told police she recognized the man as an adult, but figured he was the bus driver’s friend. Give that kid a gold star for being observant.…Continue Reading
Sheraden, PA — Tushon Brown, the registered sex offender accused of fatally stabbing 14-year-old Lauren Deis last year, will spend the rest of his life in prison under a plea deal reached Thursday. Brown, 35, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder and abuse of a corpse in exchange for a sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole.
Deis’ mother, Lisa Deis, cried as she read a statement to Brown during the hearing. “My daughter was just 14 when you stole her life away,” Lisa Deis said. “You had the nerve to tell detectives lies about my daughter. My daughter’s mistake was to trust you.”
Lisa Deis recounted a letter left by Brown’s daughter at Lauren Deis’ memorial.
“I love you Lauren. We’re so ashamed and embarrassed of our father. But don’t worry, you’re an angel now and he’ll never be able to get out,” Lisa Deis quoted from the letter.
Brown stared straight ahead for most of the hearing. ”I apologize to the family of Lauren and her friends.…Continue Reading
The boy’s father apparently saw a shadow lurking outside just before 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, and when he opened the blinds, he was unfortunate enough to lay eyes upon a mostly nekkid Randell Wilken. I say mostly nekkid because he was wearing brown flip-flops and eyeglasses. How’d you like to have that image seared into your brain, Demonites?
Dad reportedly tore out of the house and attempted to chase the nude man down, but lost sight of him. With the assistance of a K-9 tracking dog named Rudy, police found their suspect lying behind a car in a nearby driveway. Wilken told police he removed his clothing – a white t-shirt and plaid long johns - behind a newspaper stand across the street from the apartments where the child lived.
Wilken, 56, was was taken into custody and now faces charges of lewd and lascivious behavior with a child under 16, voyeurism, loitering, prowling by a sex offender and exposure of sexual organs.…Continue Reading
Provo, UT – Leave it to the state who came up with Warren Jeffs to pull this one. Lonnie Hyrum Johnson, a 38-year-old convicted child rapist, is walking around free after only a year and a half in the Utah State Hospital. To make things even more fun, Johnson is currently facing 21 more counts of rape, sodomy and aggravated sexual abuse of a child for being a nasty pedo perv with his step-daughter and her cousin. Nice goin’, Judge James Taylor.
What happened is that Johnson was convicted of the third-degree rape of a teenage girl in Washington state in 2006. He served less than a year. He then got out, started raping on his stepdaughter and her cousin in Utah, and got caught again. This time, his defense said he was too stupid to assist in his own defense – and Judge Taylor bought it.
Taylor found that Johnson had a cognitive disorder and was incompetent to stand trial, so off to the state hospital Johnson went, grinning all the way. Now, doctors say that Johnson is still unable to assist in his defense, but no longer qualifies for involuntary commitment because – get this – he’s not dangerous.…Continue Reading
Aston, PA — Bobby Carter, 51, a registered sex offender from Leitchfield, KY., is facing charges in Pennsylvania after allegedly spooging on a woman’s butt as she browsed the cereal aisle at a Giant grocery store last month.
The 36-year-old victim told police she was shopping in the cereal aisle on March 2 when she felt “something” land on her backside. She reached around, finding the back of her pants to be wet with something she believed was semen. The pants were sent to the crime lab, where it was later confirmed that the substance on the pants was, indeed, semen. The hunt was on….
Police spotted the alleged shooter after reviewing the store’s surveillance tapes. They saw a white man in his 50′s parking his semi in the parking lot and making a beeline for the customer service desk to ask for directions. After that, he took a stroll through the store, following female customers while keeping his right hand hidden in his pocket. And though the surveillance video doesn’t show semen flying through the air, it does show Carter standing directly behind the woman as she wiped the seat of her pants.…Continue Reading
Daytona Beach Shores, FL - Deeanna M. Murray, 24, is an idiot. She’s an idiot for a number of reasons. Let me count the ways, denizens:
Reason One: Murray, who is not unattractive, chose a registered sex offender who was convicted of lewd and lascivious behavior with a child as the man of her dreams. Meet Phillip Perry Heidt.
(Is it me, or is 20-year-old Heidt an early starter at the pedo game? His conviction is dated 2008, but the arrest is dated 2006. Last I looked, 20 – 5 = 15. So I do wanna know what Phillip Heidt did that got him charged as an adult and a ticket to Registrationville, just in case of extenuating circumstances. Anyway…)
Reason Two: Murray has two toddlers, ages 3 and 2. She has been living in apartment with the kids and Heidt, who was just arrested in January for being around children, so hello probation violation.
Reason Three: When police arrived at midnight on March 23 to check an anonymous tip that Heidt was once again living with children (possibly the same children), Deeanna Murray hid in the bathroom with the toddlers while Heidt tried to play it off, all like “Kids?…Continue Reading
Jacksonville, FL — In November of last year, the Department of Children and Families received an anonymous tip that a Jacksonville family was allowing a registered sex offender to live in their home – a home that included three young children. DCF launched an investigation and made contact with the family, who reportedly told them that said pervert, Robert Goeing Young, was sleeping on their couch, and no, there was no kiddy diddlin’ going on in the home.
Fully aware of Young’s conviction, the child’s parents apparently took no issue with allowing him to stay in the home. “The parents said that he was a friend of the family,” DCF spokesperson John Harrell said. “We continued our investigation. We spoke with the children individually. They said that nothing inappropriate had taken place in the home.”
DCF then came up with a brilliant safety plan – Young was to have no unsupervised contact with any of the children at any time – a plan that both the parents and Young agreed to and signed.…Continue Reading
LIVERMORE, CA – Some of you may remember Christine Hubbs. She’s the 42-year-old wife of a prominent California dentist who was accused of shagging the underage friends of her daughter. On Thursday, she pleaded no contest to four felony counts for having sex with two underage boys — one being her daughter’s boyfriend.
In exchange for this plea, prosecutors dropped 63 other felony sex counts and several misdemeanor counts stemming from her driving young boys around letting them shoot bystanders with pellet guns. However, Hubbs is expected to spend five years in prison for her actions and must register as a sex offender for the rest of her life.
Hubbs got herself in a lot of trouble in August after the mother of a 14-year-old boy found nude pics of her on his cell phone. She would be eventually be charged with numerous offenses, including oral copulation, lewd act on a child and exhibition of lewd material to a minor, after police say Hubbs had sex with at least two underage boys starting in 2008.…Continue Reading
WILLOUGHBY, Ohio — A 15-year-old boy diagnosed with Asperger’s must register as a Tier 3 sexual offender after being convicted of sexually assaulting young boys.
Tier 3 is the worst tier a person convicted of a sex offense can be placed in. It means he will be listed as a sex offender for the rest of his life, and must re-register every 90 days. What did he do to be placed alongside the cream of Lake County’s sex offending crop?
He was was convicted of one count of gross sexual imposition and three counts of sexual battery after luring five boys, all under the age of eight, into some woods and then sexually assaulting them.
He served four months in a juvenile detention center, and is never allowed back to regular school, cannot contact the victims and must be under 24 hour supervision while getting specialized sexual aggression treatment. He was allowed to return to his neighborhood.
“They’re terrible crimes, full of emotion and it’s terrible. It’s awful he had to return to the neighborhood, but the law doesn’t allow me to order him to move,” said Judge Lawson.…Continue Reading
Schenectady, NY — 35-year-old Jose Dones, a Level III sex offender, is facing numerous charges, including child endangerment and unlawfully dealing with a child, after police learned he’s responsible for inking several juveniles in the neighborhood in the past year.
According to timesunion.com,
An investigation by the police department’s Youth Aid Bureau discovered that several adolescents were tattooed by Dones. Police asked that any parents whose children may have been tattooed by Dones call the Youth Aid Bureau at 518-382-5256 to file a complaint.
Though I have not been able to unearth all the ugly details of how he obtained his status, Dones apparently served a 6 month prison term in 2008 after being convicted on charges of forcible touching. The victim in that case was a 16 year old girl.
Dones was arrested at his girlfriend’s home on January 8th for failing to register as a sex offender, again. As for the tattooing of juveniles, authorities are uncertain at this time as to whether any of Dones’ minor clients have actually been subjected to any sort of sexul assault.…Continue Reading
New London, CT — Registered sex offender Gary Germaine, 54, was arrested and charged with two counts of risk of injury to a minor and one count of second-degree breach of peace Thursday evening after police received a complaint of a man exposing himself at a ShopRite grocery store. Police officers caught up with the alleged exposer as he was attempting to leave the parking lot. Once they had their guy collared, a search of the vehicle revealed a “rubber sex toy that resembled male genitalia, a ‘jock’ strap/athletic supporter and a zucchini wrapped in duct tape.” According to police, surveillance video from the store shows Germaine placing those items inside his sweatpants and confronting other shoppers. Personally, after I recovered from laughing my ass off, I would have whipped out the cell phone and started clicking - that kind of shit would make for an awesome Facebook post. Apparently, though, there were a few kids around when Germaine was brandishing his produce and some people got all kinds of offended. Germaine is now behind bars on $100,000 bond.…Continue Reading
ORANGE COUNTY, FL – The man who was chased out of a Florida Walmart by the mother of the child he flashed is a registered sex offender who has spent time in prison for…can you guess? If you guessed child related sex crimes then you would be correct. Shocker, right? At around 3 p.m. Sunday, a tall man with a ponytail opened his trench coat and exposed himself to a young girl at an Ocoee Walmart and took off after the child’s mother tried to stop him. Using descriptions given by witnesses as well as surveillance footage, police have nabbed 43-year-old David Huffman, a transient, and charged him with lewd and lascivious exhibition to a child under 16. Huffman is no stranger to the legal system, having done time in prison on four occasions since 1988. This includes a conviction on a charge of sexual battery of a child under 12-years-old and two years in prison for failing to tell Orange County authorities that he was a sex offender. One of these days enough people will have had their children diddled by these repeat offenders to realize that euthanasia — my personal solution for repeat sex offenders – is the only punishment that truly guarantees, without any doubt, that a sex offender’s recidivism rate is exactly 0%.…Continue Reading
