Man pleads guilty in child-porn case

A Joshua Tree man pleaded guilty Friday in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles to a charge of felony possession of child pornography.

Because the defendant, Gordon Douglas Cope, 58, has a prior conviction for sexual assault of a minor, he faces a mandatory minimum sentence of 10 years in federal prison, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles reported in a statement.

Cope could face as many as 20 years in prison.

Authorities who searched Cope's computers found 670 images and 20 videos of children, some as young as 5, engaged in sexual acts, prosecutors said. Law-enforcement officials identified victims of sexual assault in 83 images and two videos.

Under a plea agreement, Cope admitted he knew the images were pornography and depicted children under 12 years of age, according to prosecutors.

Undercover FBI agents, who posed online as people interested in child pornography, visited Internet chat rooms Cope had established. The chat rooms were used to trade and publish images of child pornography.

Cope pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge George P. Schiavelli, who is scheduled to sentence Cope on July 10.

A search of the Megan's Law website does not show Gordon Douglas Cope.

What is all the fuss about, Cope was probably just using the child porn for 'personal use' and Mark Leno says that's not a problem.


Registered sex offender gets 375 years on new charges

A jury found 71 year old Jon Gary Schnabel, a real estate broker, guilty of 15 counts of committing a lewd act on a child under the age of 14. He has been sentenced to 375 years in prison.

He had been charged with six counts of child molestation involving two children in the past six years.

According to Citrus Heights Police, Schnabel would befriend the children of his adult clients. He would have the children put what he called 'medicine' on his genitals.

The charges are similar to the 1963 case that led to his registration as a sexual offender. He did just eight short months for that crime.

That victim, now 50 years old, faced Schnabel at his sentencing. Good for her!

Keep in mind the average pedophile molests between 30-60 children BEFORE he is arrested the first time, and an average of 360-380 children in his/her lifetime.

This pervert has been a registered sex offender for over 40 years! How many kids has he abused in that time? Apparently his 8 months behind bars the first time they caught him did not discourage him from doing it again.


Teen sex assault trio sentenced to 6 years

Haidl, Spann, Nachreiner get six years for videotaped abuse

By Rod Leveque, Staff Writer - Daily Bulletin

"These men have ruined me and ruined my life." - Multiple sexual assault victim 'Jane Doe'

SANTA ANA - Three young men were sentenced to six years each in state prison on Friday for sexually assaulting an unconscious teenage girl during a wild weekend of partying.

Gregory Haidl, Keith Spann and Kyle Nachreiner hoped to receive probation for the July 2002 assault in which they videotaped themselves violating the girl inside the home of Haidl's multimillionaire father.

But the judge said the former Rancho Cucamonga High School students instead deserved prison because they seem more consumed by "self-pity" than any true sorrow for the harm they caused their victim.

"Each defendant has been slow to express remorse," Judge Francisco Briseno said.

Haidl, Spann and Nachreiner were all 17 when they videotaped themselves inserting a pool cue, juice can, Snapple bottle and cigarette into the 16-year-old girl while she was passed out drunk atop a pool table.

They had their way with the girl's limp body inside the Corona Del Mar home of Haidl's father, who was then an Orange County assistant sheriff.

Contra Costa Times gets it

Bad sex-offender laws

CALIFORNIA REALLY NEEDS TO examine and modify its sex offender laws. The California Supreme Court recently overturned a law requiring people 21 or older who are convicted of having oral sex with a 16 or 17 year old to register as sex offenders for life.

Shocking and disgusting though it may be, it is the correct decision in this case because it keeps punishment equal for similar crimes.

That is to say, that it is the law that is fouled up here and not the courts.

There are parts of the state's sex offender laws that are inane and need to be revised.

Other cases of adults 21 or older convicted of having sex with 16 and 17 year olds do not necessarily require the convict to register. It is unjust to treat one sexual offense differently from the other.

However, the law needs desperately and immediately to be revisited. Sex is sex.

Those 21 years or older should be having neither oral sex (which is sex, people) nor intercourse in any manner or position with minors.

If they do so, they should be convicted and treated as sex offenders. Period.

Caught on tape: Phillip Thomas Jaruhungsin

Phillip Thomas Jaruhungsin was one of the Internet perverts busted during the Dateline NBC / Perverted Justice / Riverside County Sheriff's Department sting operation.

Phil has been charged with attempted child molestation and was at court today for his felony settlement conference.

We spotted Phil outside the courthouse.



All you perverts need to know 2 things; you have no expectation of privacy while in public and the age of consent in California is 18!


Caught on tape: Peter Christopher Moore

Peter Christopher Moore, aka Chris Moore, was one of the Internet perverts busted during the Dateline NBC / Perverted Justice / Riverside County Sheriff's Department sting operation.

Chris has been charged with attempted child molestation and was at court today for his felony settlement conference.

We spotted Chris talking with his attorney outside the courthouse. His attorney seems to think Chris will not get any jail time. We will see.



Here's a friendly little tip for you Chris; guys don't sit with their knees together, that's what girls do Chris.


Caught on tape: Paul Constantinescu

Paul Constantinescu was one of the Internet perverts busted during the Dateline NBC / Perverted Justice / Riverside County Sheriff's Department sting operation.

Paul was at court today for his felony settlement conference.

We caught up with Paul as he was driving away. His face went from joy to pure white as soon as he figure out he was made.

Unfortunately do to poor lighting conditions it's difficult to make out his face when he is in his car. Trust us, the look on his face was priceless!





All you perverts need to get this though your puny perverted brains, the Pervert Patrol has cameras everywhere....and we are watching you.


Big day in court for the Riverside Perverts today

16 of the perverts caught in the Dateline NBC / Perverted Justice / Riverside County Sheriff's Department sting operation were scheduled to appear in court today.

  • Nicolas Cocos - Felony Settlement Conference
  • Paul Constantinescu - Felony Settlement Conference
  • Richer Daniel Breault - Felony Settlement Conference
  • Eddie Hoidick Chan - Preliminary Hearing
  • Stephen Walter Coates - Felony Settlement Conference
  • Roberto Forte- Felony Settlement Conference
  • Eduardo Ernesto Guillen - Arraignment
  • Alvin Joseph Hall- Arraignment
  • Charles Carlton Harding - Felony Settlement Conference
  • Phillip Thomas Jaruhungsin - Felony Settlement Conference
  • Gregory John Karnos - Felony Settlement Conference
  • Kurt Horst Lemke - Felony Settlement Conference
  • Peter Christopher Moore - Felony Settlement Conference
  • Inderjeet Singh - Felony Settlement Conference
  • Danny Lee Swinney - Felony Settlement Conference
  • Keith Allen Williams - Felony Settlement Conference
It was a mess at the Justice Center today. The courtroom is far too small for this many defendants. The hall outside the courtroom was packed.

A video crew brought a camera into the courtroom just after 8:30 am. A source has told me that Dateline NBC intends to do a followup show. That should be interesting but I do not know when it will air.

I did not see any other media there. That's a shame because these perverts depend on staying below the radar. They count on the press and public losing interest. I for one hope that does not happen.

As you can see 13 out of the 16 were for a felony settlement conference. Bet you want to know what happened, don't you.

I can sum up what happened with one word: Nothing!

Nicolas Cocos, Stephen Walter Coates, Roberto Forte, Gregory John Karnos (registered sex offender), Phillip Thomas Jaruhungs , Peter Christopher Moore, Inderjeet Singh, Danny Lee Swinney and Keith Allen Williams all had a felony settlement conference and in each case it was continued to a later date. They all remain free on bail.

Charles Carlton Harding had a felony settlement conference and it too was continued. He remains in custody.

Paul Constantinescu and Kurt Horst Lemke each had a felony settlement conference. The disposition of these conferences is unknown at this time but odds are they too were continued. They each remain free on bail.

That was a colossal waste of time and money.

You know time and time again we hear how our courts are overwhelmed, how we don't have enough judges, bla bla bla.

A judge, a bunch of bailiffs, a court reporter, a clerk, other staff, prosecutors and a boatload of defense attorneys all get together for hours and accomplish absolutely nothing.

Well it's not going to get any better when all they do is continue the cases to a later date. Add the fact that the court starts late, takes way too many 15 minute breaks, takes a long lunch and leaves early and it amazing that anything ever gets done.

Richer Daniel Breault was present in court for his felony settlement conference. His defense was not present, his conference continued to a later date and he remains free on bail.

Hoi Dick Chan was in court for his preliminary hearing today. A date was set for bail review. His bail was recently increased to $750,000. He remains in custody.

Eduardo Ernesto Guillen was present in court for his arraignment. He pleaded not guilty to charges of attempted child molestation and remains out on bail.

Alvin Joseph Hall Jr. was present in court today for his arraignment. The disposition is unknown at this time and he remains free on bail.

However not all was lost. We shot some video and 'accidently' over heard some conversations.

Kurt Horst Lemke seemed absolutely giddy when Paul Constantinescu arrived, trotting over and shaking his hand. Yeah those perverts gotta stick together. It looked like they were talking with Nicholas Cocos but it was hard to tell for sure. Most of these guys have cleaned up since they appeared on Dateline NBC and look different now.

Eduardo Ernesto Guillen was chatting it up with Phillip Thomas Jaruhungsin in the hallway.

Peter Christopher Moore was speaking with his attorney outside. His attorney told him he does not think he will do any jail time. Yep, that's what he said.

More of the Riverside perverts will be in court next week, let's hope the court can actually manage to accomplish something.

I will post the video we shot today ASAP.


Faheem Nawar Williams arrested for alleged child molestation

The Riverside County Sheriff's Department Palm Desert Station received information about a minor having a relationship with an adult. The minor had conversations about the relationship with family members who immediately reported the incident to law enforcement.

On the morning of Wednesday, March 8, 2006, the adult that having the relationship with the minor was asked speak to investigators at the Palm Desert Station.

After the interview, Faheem Nawar Williams, age 25, a resident of Palm Desert, was arrested and booked into the Indio Jail for 6 counts child molestation and his bail has been set at $1,000,000.00.

Anyone with information about this incident is encouraged to call Investigator Anthony Baur at the Palm Desert Station at 760-836-1600.


Prosecutor says hospital worker admitted 'countless' molestations

By ELLIOT SPAGAT

The Associated Press

SAN DIEGO

A respiratory therapist at Children's Convalescent Hospital confessed to molesting "countless" disabled patients, targeting the comatose and most brain-damaged, a prosecutor said Friday.

Wayne Albert Bleyle, 54, pleaded not guilty to two counts of child molestation and 24 counts of child pornography, but the prosecutor said in court that he confessed during a phone interview while he was in New York state visiting family.

"One of the agents who interviewed him said, 'How many kids are we talking about?'" said Laura Gunn, a San Diego deputy district attorney. "The defendant, who was in New York at the time looking out at the snow, looked out at the snow and said, 'How many snowflakes are there out there?'"

"He averaged about two kids a week, and he specifically chose children who were the most brain-damaged, most comatose, most nonverbal children who could never say anything about it," Gunn told Superior Court Judge David Szumowski, who set bail at $5 million, far more than the $3 million bail requested by prosecutors.

The complaint identified two alleged victims, both girls under 14 years old, but authorities said there may be more. Asked by reporters to estimate how many children were allegedly molested, Gunn said, "I don't know if we will ever know."

Eddie Chan in custody

Eddie ChanSome people just don't get it.

Eddie Chan, aka Eddie Hoidick Chan, aka Eddie Hoi Chan, aka Hoi Dick Chan, one of the perverts busted in the Dateline NBC / Perverted Justice / Riverside County Sheriff's Department sting operation in January, has been taken into custody.

Someone from Perverted Justice spoke with John and Ken a couple of weeks ago about the Laguna Beach sting operation where they busted 13 Internet perverts.

They told John and Ken that during the Laguna sting a couple of the perverts from the Riverside sting made contact with their Laguna decoy. Reportedly one of the Riverside perverts said he just does not believe in age limits. Well that's a big suprise.

So who were the 2 Riverside Internet perverts that were out on bail and able to allegedly make contact with the Laguna Internet sting decoy? I am not sure, I wasn't there.

However (you knew this was going somewhere) I did find some new information about Eddie Chan, information that may indicate he is one of the two in question.

For his participation in the Riverside sting, Eddie Chan was charged with the standard attempted child molestation charge. There is an additional charge of "Harmful matter sent w/intent of seduction of minor".

Eddie was out on bail. Most of the Riverside perverts had bail set at $50,000. Additional charges and/or previous convicitons resulted in an increased bail.

According to court documents, on February 24th there was a felony settlement conference for Eddie Chan. During this conference the DA informed the court of "possible additional misconduct" and asked that bail be increased to, are you ready, ONE BILLION DOLLARS. I am not sure if that is a typo, perhaps Dr. Evil was the court reporter, who knows but that is what is in the court record, $1,000,000,000.

Well that motion by the DA was denied by Judge Bernard J. Schwartz. However the court did issue the following orders:

  • COURT ORDERS DEFT TO HAVE NOT USE OF COMPUTERS IN ANY ILLEGAL ACTIVITY.
  • COURT ORDERS DEFT NOT TO ACCESS ANY SITES OF ILLEGAL CONDUCT.

Does anyone really think that will stop an Internet pervert?

Thankfully the DA was persistent and there was a motion for bail review on March 3rd. The court read the transcript of "further contact online". The DA asked that the bail be increased to one million dollars this time.

The court agreed and increased the bail for Eddie Chan to $750,000. It looks like Eddie was not able to post that amount of bail and was remanded to the custody of the Riverside County Sheriff's Department. Yep, Eddie is now behind bars.

That's a great job by the DA's office and whoever got the transcript to them deserves a big thank you too.


Elizabeth Smart lobbies D.C. senators

Sex offender registry: The measure has already passed in the House
By Robert Gehrke
The Salt Lake Tribune

WASHINGTON - Elizabeth Smart, whose kidnapping in 2002 drew national attention, encouraged senators to approve a national sex offender registry bill that was passed by the House on Wednesday.

“I don't want to see others go through what I had to go through,” said Smart.

The legislation makes it a crime for sex offenders not to register with their state and requires states to share information when an offender moves to a new state.

It passed the House on a voice vote and has broad support, but has been delayed because Democratic members insist that it include hate crimes legislation opposed by Republican leaders.

The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children estimates there are about 550,000 sex offenders in the United States, and about 150,000 have failed to register.

“I think this is a great bill and it needs to be passed,” Smart said. “I think it will affect a lot of people for good and can make our country a safer place.”

Smart was abducted from her bedroom June 5, 2002, launching a sweeping search and drawing attention from around the world. She was missing for nine months, but was found with her alleged kidnappers on March 12, 2003.

Bills would toughen sex offender notification laws

By Ledyard King, Gannett News Service

WASHINGTON — Convicted sex offenders would have to check in with local law enforcement at least twice a year and would face prison time if they didn't under proposals in Congress to strengthen registration and community notification standards.

The bills also would require states to register offenders prior to their leaving prison and double the time — from 10 years to 20 — that offenders must remain registered.

The legislation would be the biggest overhaul of federal sex offender laws since the mid-1990s, when Congress enacted minimum rules that states had to follow in tracking sex offenders and alerting neighbors to their presence.

Loopholes in state laws and a lack of money to track offenders have left wide gaps, advocates say. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children estimates that of the nearly 550,000 registered sex offenders nationwide, as many as 100,000 are unaccounted for.

In pushing for tougher monitoring, advocates point to the murder of Jessica Lunsford. Authorities say the 9-year-old schoolgirl from Florida was kidnapped, raped and buried alive a year ago by a registered sex offender whom police had lost track of because he had moved.

Congress is working on legislation designed to better track sexual predators as they move from prison to communities and from state to state. Details are still being worked out, but the consensus is that some states need to do a more thorough job of registering offenders, and the federal government ought to help states monitor offenders' whereabouts and notify local communities.

Lawmakers are divided on how far states should have to go.

Where is the Kids Caucus in California?

In my never ending quest to provide you with the latest legislative information regarding sex offenders I have stumbled across a curious fact about California. There is a caucus for just about everything except children.

A caucus is a group of legislators that share something in common or have a common goal.

There is a Repulican Caucus, a Democratic Caucus, a Black Caucus, a Latino Caucus, an Asian Pacific Islander Caucus, a Smart Growth Caucus and even an LGBT Caucus. That's not a fancy sandwich, it stands for Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender.

Why no caucus to push kids issues?

I know they don't turn out in record numbers to vote. As a matter of fact I believe 0% of kids voted in the last election. But they still deserve to have someone looking out for them.

Could it be that there are just not enough children in California to warrant a caucus of their own? Doubtful, I don't think it's a stretch to say there are more kids in California than all the 'LGTB's' combined, but somehow they managed to get a caucus.

Maybe it's because kids as a whole do not make big campaign contributions. Could that be why they don't have a caucus? Just because the children of California are at the lower end of the income bracket does not make their concerns any less important. It's not their fault labor laws prevent them from making a decent living.

The bottom line is kids have no voice of their own. They depend on us to be their voice, to stand up for them and to protect them from evil.

We are making progress but we have a long way to go. Let's make sure we continue to be heard for the sake of all the children of California.

Chilling Child Sexual Abuse Statistics

  • U.S. Department of Justice reports that 1 in 3 girls and 1 in 7 boys are molested before the age of 18.

  • An estimated 61% of violent sex offenders in State prisons have a prior conviction history.

  • An estimated 1 in 4 imprisoned rape and sexual assault offenders has a prior history of a violent crime and 1 in 7 have been previously convicted of a violent sex crime. (U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, February 1997)

  • 67% of all victims of sexual assault reported to law enforcement were minors and 34% of those victims were under the age of 12. (National Incident-Based Reporting System)

  • Since 1980, the number of prisoners sentenced for violent sexual assault (other than rape) has increased by an annual average of nearly 15% -- faster than any other category of violent crime and faster than all other categories except drug trafficking. (U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, February 1997)

  • FBI studies have shown that pornography is very influential in the actions of sex offenders and serial murders. Statistics show that 90 percent of the predators who molest children have had some type of involvement with pornography. They use pornography and child pornography to aid them in their molestations.

  • The average pedophile molests between 30-60 children BEFORE he is arrested the first time, and an average of 360-380 children in his/her lifetime.

  • Convicted rape and sexual assault offenders serving time in State prisons report that two-thirds of their victims were under the age of 18, and 58% of those said their victims were aged 12 or younger. (U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics, Sex Offenses and Offenders, An Analysis of Data on Rape and Sexual Assault, February 1997)

  • Women who had been raped as children were almost four times more likely than non-victims to make a serious attempt to commit suicide. (Beth E. Molnar et al., Psychopathology, Childhood Sexual Abuse and Other Childhood Adversities: Relative Links to Subsequent Suicidal Behaviour in the US, 31 Psychol. Med. 965, 972 (Table 3)(2001))

  • Perpetrators of child sexual abuse remain at risk of reoffending many years after the original abuse. “Inducing a child to have sex does not depend on any overwhelming physical or sexual prowess but rather on verbal manipulation – an ability that, of course, does not recede with normal aging.” (Robert Dickey et al., Age as a Differential Characteristic of Rapists, Pedophiles, and Sexual Sadists, 28 J. Sex & Martial Therapy 211, 213 (2002). Unlike most violent offenders, child molesters do not “age out” of criminality.

  • “Intensive community-based supervision and management of child molesters are essential to reduce sexual victimization rates; child abusers have been known to reoffend as late as 20 years following release into the community.” (Child Sexual Molestation: Research Issues, U.S. Department of Justice, National Institute of Justice, June 1997)

Sex Offender bill makes it out of the Assembly Public Safety Committee

Assembly bill 1791, authored by Assemblyman Rudy Bermudez (D), made it out of the Assembly Public Safety Committee yesterday by a vote of 4-2.

Current law prevents registered sex offenders on parole from residing within 1/4 mile of any school K-8.

AB 1791 "prohibits an inmate released on parole who has been convicted of a lewd or lascivious act upon a child who is 14 or 15 years of age from being placed or residing for the duration of his or her parole within one-quarter mile of any public or private school containing Grades 9-12, inclusive."

Well that's a bit picky but it's better than nothing. Keep in mind Jessica's Law will be much more protective of all school children.

Votes for: La Suer (R), Spitzer (R), Cohn (D) and Dymally (D)

Votes against: Leno (D) and Goldberg (D)


Ex-coach sentenced to 10 years for luring boy for sex

By JON FRANK, The Virginian-Pilot
March 6, 2006 | Last updated 9:51 PM Mar. 6

VIRGINIA BEACH — A former coach at a Suffolk prep school was sentenced to 10 years in prison Monday for trying to meet an underage boy for sex after a police Internet sting.

Kenneth W. Crowder, 54, was led back into custody after being sentenced by Circuit Judge Patricia L. West. He already is serving a one-year sentence for possession of child pornography in Suffolk.

West said Crowder’s crimes were especially frightening because of his history of working closely with boys as a coach at Nansemond-Suffolk Academy. “I think the community should be terrified of what you might do,” West told Crowder.

He pleaded guilty last year to two sex crimes in Virginia Beach: attempted indecent liberties and using a communication device to procure minors.

Chalk up another bust to the folks over at Perverted Justice, good job.

During sentencing Internet Pervert Ken Crownder asked the judge if he could get 'treatment' instead of going to prison. Judge Patricia West said no way and "I think the risk is too great".

It is refreshing to see a judge who gets it. Thank you Judge West.

Now let's hope Judge Bernard Schwartz, who is presiding over the cases of the perverts busted here in Riverside, gets it too. Judge Schwartz has some recent legal problems of his own, I hope this does not give him cause to go easy on the Riverside 50.


Neighborhood near San Diego shocked to find 5 sex offenders living next door

Maria White says she gets a knot in her stomach when walking by the house with her grandson.

She and her neighbors are just finding out about the house on Jacoby Rd. in Spring Valley with 5 registered sex offenders as its residents.

"I don't understand how individuals like that can be in the community and people next door have no way of knowing unless they go out of their way to find out," said David, a local resident. David doesn't understand why people in the neighborhood were never told about the sex offenders in the house.

"Desperate Housewives" star says she was molested as a child

The Associated Press

NEW YORK

Teri Hatcher, one of the stars of ABC's "Desperate Housewives," says in the upcoming issue of Vanity Fair that her uncle sexually molested her 35 years ago.

The 41-year-old actress says she learned in 2002 that a 14-year-old victim of her uncle had committed suicide. Concerned that he would escape charges of molestation, Hatcher approached the Santa Clara County prosecutors in California.

"This is something I've tried to hide my whole life," Hatcher tells the magazine, which hits newsstands Friday with the actress on the cover.

"I was just blown away by this young girl's pain," she says. "I thought, boy, that's really close to being me. Any day of the week I could feel that sort of pain. I haven't tried to kill myself, but I've certainly thought about it."

After Hatcher came forward, her uncle, Richard Hayes Stone, then 64-years-old, pleaded guilty to four counts of child molestation in the case of the 14-year-old victim and received 14 years in prison.

Chuck Gillingham, the Santa Clara County deputy district attorney in California, said, "Without Teri, this case would have been dismissed."

State Prison Reform Hopes in Jeopardy

The recent resignation of the corrections chief raises doubts about the governor's commitment to overhaul the system.

By Jenifer Warren, Times Staff Writer
March 7, 2006

SACRAMENTO — When California's chief of corrections quit in frustration a week ago, a provocative question was left hovering in the air: Can anyone fix the state's dysfunctional prisons?

Will anyone be allowed to?

Reformers were giddy when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger vowed shortly after his 2003 election that he would demand "action, action, action" until the mess in his Department of Corrections was cleaned up. Overcrowding had packed penitentiaries to twice their intended capacity, increasing violence, straining staff and sending costs spiraling out of control.

Inmate medical care had become so poor that a federal receiver was eventually put in charge. And more than half of all convicts released were back in prison within two years.

To champion his agenda, Schwarzenegger picked Roderick Q. Hickman, a former prison guard and warden, as corrections secretary. Though Hickman described himself as a "hook 'em and book 'em guy," he said he believed true public safety was impossible if the state did not do a better job preparing inmates for success on the outside.

For the first time in decades, advocates of reform felt real change was within reach. A popular governor — a Republican! — was singing their tune.

But that optimism has dimmed, and inside the department — now called Corrections and Rehabilitation — employees exhausted by long hours devoted to charting a new course wonder if their efforts will amount to naught.

Explaining his resignation in an interview with The Times, Hickman said he faced dwindling support in the Legislature and governor's office for the changes he had launched. California's "political environment and the power of special interests," he said, "work against efforts to bring about lasting reform."

Day to day, Hickman was handcuffed by the power of the correctional officers union, whose labor contract gives its leaders a say in virtually every change that affects the workplace. The union, whose leaders lambasted Hickman from the start, also is a powerful player in the Legislature, capable of killing reform bills.

Kids catch Internet Pervert by accident

Mike RamosWell this is an odd story.

5 teenage boys created a MySpace account of a non existent 15 year old girl. They did it to try to cheer up their buddy who had just broken up with his gal.

Well it did not take long until they were hit on by an older guy. According to Fontana police, 48 year old Mike Ramos agreed to meet what he thought was the 15 year old girl at a park in Fontana. Police were waiting for him and according to them, Ramos said he intended to have sex with the 15 year old.

Unbelievable but true, these perverts are really persistent.

Another rapist is moved into Harriet Cooks Sex Offender Clown House

Jerry Hampton - Convicted RapistThis one looks like a real winner.

His name is Jerry Walter Hampton.

Back in the late 80's he served just 3 years of an 8 year sentence for rape.

Hampton has been in and out of trouble ever since.

His most recent problems include a charge of public intoxication in April of 2003. He got 3 years probation for that.

Then just a year later, in March of 2004, he was charged with penal code 314.1, indecent exposure, a felony. That ended up being reduced to a misdemeanor. Again he got 3 years probation, even though he was still on probation for the public intoxiation a year prior to that. There was another victim in this case and he has been ordered to stay away from her.

His most recent stays in prison include Atascadero and the California Men’s Colony near San Luis Obispo.

Last year he had a charge of failing to register as a sex offender. He was paroled out of prison in July of 2005 to Moreno Valley unit 2. Remember, parole supervisor Lisa Abma is unit 3, so don't call her any names and hurt her delicate feelings.

Below are his offences listed on Megan's Law.

Governor has chance to fix prison system

Experts say he must import an outsider with political clout

James Sterngold, Chronicle Staff Writer

Monday, March 6, 2006

With the surprise resignation of the state's corrections secretary last week, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has a chance to repair what some experts say is one of his worst failures, the growing problems of the desperately overburdened prison system.

But corrections experts have some sobering news for the governor -- the job, most agree, may be impossible to perform without drastic changes.

In interviews, a number of experts generally agreed that the new secretary ought to be a high-profile personality from outside the department with great political clout and that the governor must make a far stronger, personal commitment to see parole reforms through. They also said that sentencing laws should be changed and that the state must pour more money into drug rehabilitation.

But even if those changes were made, few of the experts were optimistic. Most said the atmosphere in the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation is so poisoned by infighting and paralysis that few would want the job.

Joan Petersilia, a visiting law professor at Stanford University who worked two years as a special adviser to the outgoing secretary, Roderick Hickman, said one of her assignments was trying to recruit experts for high-level jobs. She always failed, she said, not because of the depth of the problems, but because the candidates complained that the department was too politicized.

"What I kept hearing was they always questioned the sincerity of the people at the top," said Petersilia. "They just didn't feel this was a very professionally run organization. They said it was too political, and you were too much at risk of being replaced if you upset anybody."

The Schwarzenegger administration inherited a prison system suffering an array of problems that, most agree, the governor has largely failed to correct or has made worse.

Parole pissing off the wrong people

Two more sex-offender parolees, reportedly without ties to the Antelope Valley, have been placed locally, drawing consternation from Valley officials.

Edgardo Rene Carrillo, 34, was moved into a Palmdale motel last month, while Anthony Moreno, 35, was placed in a rural eastside location Feb. 15, records show.

Both were convicted of sex crimes against children.

"Once again, Corrections is messing with us, and we need to get this (Carrillo) guy out," said Sharon Runner, R-Lancaster. "It seems like this is a weekly issue, and we need to make sure they're honoring the agreement they have."

Update: Riverside Sting Perverts

We are still monitoring the court cases of the perverts caught in the Dateline / Perverted Justice / Riverside County Sheriff's Department sting operation.

This week Kurt Horst Lemke, Roberto Forte and Nicholas Cocos are due back in court. We will keep you updated on what happens.

The Riverside County Sheriff's Department only leaves their press releases up on the net for a limited time. They have since removed the press release about the Riverside sting however I, your fearless blogger, anticipated this and saved the information to a top secret secure location.

If you remember the original photos you would not be out of line to say the person taking the pictures was photographically challenged as most were out of focus. I have since cleaned them up and posted them below.

Four of the perverts caught are registered sex offenders. I added links to their Megan's Law pages.

Most of these perverts are out on bail. According to Perverted Justice, two of the Riverside perverts made contact with the Perverted Justice decoy during their Laguna Beach sting operation. Sad but true, these creeps just don't get it.
