GILBERT, AZ – A man in Arizona has been accused of faking a disability to trick caregivers into scrubbing his genitals.

Something stinks in the state of Arizona. Just ask Paul Anthony Menchaca.

You see, Menchaca is a 30-year-old with Down Syndrome. Sometimes he soils himself. He can’t help it.

And when he has an accident, he needs help cleaning up. And bathing his genitals. And some discipline.

He’s what they call a “special needs adult.”

Feeling bad for Menchaca yet? Well, don’t.

An individual named Amy, who represented herself as Menchaca’s mother, hired a caregiver off of CareLinx.com in early May to give the Gilbert, Arizona man the help that he needed.

Communicating only by text, Amy arranged for the caregiver to assist Menchaca on 30 separate occasions at various locations in Gilbert and nearby Chandler, but (tellingly) never at his home.

The caregiver was always paid in cash by Menchaca.

Amy also instructed the caregiver to punish Menchaca when he had an accident “by putting him in timeout and taking away his privileges.”

And those genitals had to be squeaky-clean.…

NEDERLAND, TX – A judge sentenced a woman to 50 years in prison after she forced an 11-year-old relative to have sex with her on multiple occasions.

According to court documents, 39-year-old Tamora Angel Foster forced an 11-year-old relative to have intercourse and oral sex with her in the summer of 2015.

She forced him to do it again in 2016 when the boy was 12.

In 2016 Foster was arrested and charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child. On Friday, she was found guilty by a jury.

Foster was  subsequently sentenced to 50 years in prison with no chance of parole and must register as a sex offender for life.

“It’s hard to imagine a more emotional and disturbing set of facts than those in this case,” assistant district attorney Kim Pipkin said. “I want to thank the jury for their verdict, law enforcement and CPS for their investigations, each of the witnesses for their testimony, the Garth House for their support, and most importantly, the victim for being so courageous.”

Foster’s co-defendant, 62-year-old James Shoemaker, was also charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child.…

MUSKEGON COUNTY, MI – A 19-year-old mother has been accused of sexually abusing her infant son and using him to produce child pornography.

Jazmine Nichole Pacyga has been charged with first degree criminal sexual conduct and manufacturing child sexually abusive material after admitting to performing oral sex on her 3-month-old baby.

I can’t find a lot of details regarding how she was caught, but I am assuming – going by the charges against her – Pacyga is another of many women we have featured on the site who have sexually abused their children on camera.

Pacyga is being charged as a second-time habitual offender because of a prior conviction for felony home invasion. These latest charges could see her getting life behind bars if convicted.

Since her parental rights have been suspended due to her “drunkenness and neglect,” and because she has been lodged in the Muskegon County Jail on two felony charges, her son has been placed in the custody of DHHS. Efforts are currently underway to determine the baby’s father.…

catfishSYRACUSE, NY – Man, oh man. Do I have a twisted one for you this morning. A father has admitted to catfishing his daughter for nude pictures that he would later use as blackmail material to molest her.

Back in 2013, a 41-year-old man created a handful of social media accounts pretending to be a 16-year-old boy. He used this account to communicate with his 14-year-old daughter and used the account to enter into an online relationship with her.

Throughout the relationship, the boyfriend constantly asked for the girl to send him nude pictures of herself. She initially resisted, but eventually sent him sexually explicit images of herself, totally unaware she was actually sending them to her own father.

The girl grew tired of the relationship and tried to break up with the boy, explaining she was looking for someone interested in more than just sex. Her father, posing as the teenage boy, responded to this breakup by asking for more nudes. When she denied his request, he resorted in blackmailing her using the previous pictures she’d sent him.…

Ashley RagusaTOLEDO, OH – Ashley Ragusa, 32, was sentenced to 10 years in prison after prosecutors say she forced her two daughters, ages 7 and 8, to perform oral sex on her.

Lucas County Judge Myron Duhart sentenced Ragusa after she entered an Alford plea to three counts of gross sexual imposition with her daughters between January 2012 and December 2013, stating that the life of the two victims was “almost like a horror movie.”

“There were acts that were perpetrated on these children that in my mind are unconscionable,” said Duhart.

According to the judge, the conditions of the home the children lived in, along with the sexual abuse they endured at the hands of Ragusa, was “horrific” and that no sentence he handed her would right those wrongs.

He wasn’t kidding, either. The children’s caregiver told the court that the girls suffer problems with trust, food hoarding, acting out, and other issues.

Ragusa blamed her actions on depression and drug abuse, and told the court she was thankful for the year she has already spent in prison because it has allowed her to sober up.…

Jonathan FlemingBALTIMORE, 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.…

David LaveraNEWTON, IA – On Monday, 34-year-old David LaVera was sentenced to 10 years in prison for sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl while posing as a Twilight actor.

One year ago today, LaVera was arrested in Baxter, Iowa, after trying to lure a 14-year-old girl into his car. He had been communicating with the girl on social media while claiming to be Kiowa Gordon, an actor known for playing Embry Call, one of those shape shifter/werewolf thingies featured in the mind-numbingly insipid Twilight series, and traveled to Baxter specifically for a meet-up with her.

However, a friend of the girl’s mother intervened, getting her out LaVera’s car, at which point he sped away. Police caught him a few minutes later and found two swords and several daggers in his vehicle. As far as I can tell, it’s this incident that led to the sexual abuse charge, as it appears that LaVera inappropriately touched the girl before trying to get her into his car.

Turns out that before the Baxter arrest, LaVera had come to LE’s attention for trying to lure a different 14-year-old girl in Newton.…

Rafael PaulinoStaten Island, NY — A 42-year-old man is facing numerous charges after allegedly molesting a 15-year-old girl by rubbing raw meat on her naked body in order to cleanse her of the evil spirits that were making her moody.

Alleged “spiritual leader” Rafael Paulino, aka Omi Chango, apparently met with a female relative of the teen and explained that he would rub raw meat on the girl’s body and pour water on her after he had cut her clothes off in order to spiritually cleanse her. This ritual, he told the woman, was not for entertainment or amusement. He was simply going to attempt to rid the child of the evil spirit that was making her depressed.

The female relative agreed to the cleansing and shelled out $121. It is believed that she wanted a cleansing, too. Not sure if that was the price for the both of ’em, or if maybe he was having a special that week.

On February 24, Paulino met with the girl and got busy fixin’ her depression.…

Travis SchellingPhoenix, AZ — A 35-year-old man is facing numerous charges after allegedly assaulting his girlfriend over a misunderstanding of how Facebook works.

According to police, Travis Schelling thought other men were sending direct messages to his girlfriend on Facebook anytime one of her friend’s posts popped up on her feed. And every time he read one of those messages, he hit her. In addition to the hitting, police say, Schelling also violently shook the woman by her hair, ripping it out in clumps. It is believed that Schelling also sexually assaulted her.

Police say he held his girlfriend captive from about 11:30 Friday night to 3:00 Saturday morning, threatening to kill her, her family and her friends if she dared alert authorities. The woman finally convinced Schelling that she wasn’t going to tell, and he released her at about noon on Saturday.

Police said the victim had bruising on her face, arms, legs and a cut and swollen lip when she reported the incident.

Schelling has been booked on charges of kidnapping, sexual abuse, aggravated assault, threatening and intimidation.…

Jamie CarrilloALHAMBRA, CA – On Friday, 28-year-old Jamie Carrillo posted a video of herself confronting a former teacher she says sexually abused her when she was a child. Andrea Cardosa, the alleged abuser and assistant principal of Alhambra High School, has since resigned.

The video’s description stated:

“I am 28 years old and have been waiting years to get up enough courage to report a teacher for sexually abusing me for years. When I finally got up enough courage to report her, I found out that the statute of limitations was up and she will never have to pay for the things that she did to me. I decided to call her and make a video to let the public know what kind of person is around their children. Her name is Andrea Cardosa and works with your children at Alhambra High School in Alhambra, Ca.”

In the video, Carrillo explains she was abused by Cardosa for years, starting when she was just 12-years-old and Cardosa was a basketball coach at her middle school in Moreno Valley.…

Troy, NY – Wallace Wheeler, 68, was arrested last Thursday by authorities who allege he forcibly kissed and fondled a 98-year-old senior home resident who is suffering from dementia.

Wheeler had reportedly visited the Evergreen Commons facility many times to visit his sister.  However, when she passed away in December 2011, he continued his visits, having established relationships with several other residents.  He is said to have brought candy for them on multiple occasions.  According to interviews with residents, he had never made anyone feel uncomfortable until just prior to the alleged incident.

Staff was alerted on the Wednesday before the reported inappropriate conduct that something “odd” was going on.

On August 30th, those suspicions were confirmed by a staff member and another resident who said that Wheeler was seen kissing and touching the victim near a nurse’s station in a common area.  Excuse me while I swallow this bit of vomit in my upper-throat.

According to the log book at Evergreen Commons, Wheeler only stayed a short time that day. …

Newark, NJ – Bawer Aksal, 48, is accused of forcibly fondling a sleeping woman while in-flight from Phoenix to Newark, NJ on a Monday-night United Airlines jaunt.  He is a Turkish national with U.S. citizenship.

The unidentified victim was reportedly seated adjacent to the window, wearing headphones and sleeping.  Aksal was seated in the middle seat, and another passenger sat next to him on the aisle.  The victim says she awoke to one of Aksal’s hands down her shorts, and his other up her blouse, grabbing at her breasts.

He was reportedly breathing heavily and asked several times for her to kiss him, which prompted her to remove his hands and slam the armrest between them down.  The passenger in the aisle seat offered to help the woman and escorted her to the rear of the plane to alert airline personnel and corroborate her story.  He would later tell authorities that he had witnessed Aksal’s hand under a jacket the victim had draped across her legs.

Aksal was detained and sequestered on the plane until its arrival at Newark Liberty Airport, where federal officials were waiting to take control of the situation. …
