Child neglect is not cool


(CBS/AP/KCTV) Olathe, Kan. - Kansas woman Rachel Perez, who kept her disabled son in an attic, has been sentenced to eight years in prison.

The 26-year-old of De Soto was sentenced Thursday to the maximum sentences allowed for attempted second-degree murder, child abuse and aggravated child endangerment.

Perez kept her son, who has Down syndrome, hidden in her attic and lied to investigators when they came to her home to check on the boy. Deputies found him Aug. 17 covered with feces and urine and weighing less than 20 pounds.

A pediatrician has said the boy would have died within days if he hadn't been found.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that her attorney argued Perez never intended to kill her son and should not have been charged with attempted murder.

All four of Perez's children have been placed in foster care.

Hummer mom explains her view


Christine Hubbs spoke to a reporter for the first time since being convicted of having sex with two teen boys, including one who was her daughter's boyfriend.

The suburban mother from Livermore, Calif. told a reporter with ABC station KGO-TV that she's not a predator and didn't force anyone into sex.

"I have to take responsibility, but I don't want to be portrayed as a predator or someone that went out and forced this on anyone," Hubbs told KGO. "This was not the case at all."

Hubbs was arrested on August 5 following an investigation that began July 27 when the mother of one of the alleged victims said she found a topless photo of Hubbs on her son's cell phone. During the interview, Hubbs claims the first sexual encounter with her first victim, a 14-year-old who was dating her daughter, happened during a family vacation at a cabin. Hubbs says she fell asleep with her two daughters and the boy in the same queen-sized bed. "The next thing I know, you know, just kind of feeling around and I kind of knocked him, knocked him and it just kind of went on and I was exhausted and I just don't know what happened," Hubbs told KGO reporter Dan Noyes. "I don't know how I broke down. I don't know how I let it happen."

It was amazing baby


Amanda J. Jackson, 31, of Elkland, appeared in Webster County Circuit Court Monday on a Class A misdemeanor charge of child molestation. The hearing was reset for Monday, May 23.
According to the probable cause statement, Jackson was interviewed by Deputy Aaron Callaway of the Webster County Sheriff’s Office on Jan. 31. In the statement, Jackson described sexual acts between herself and a 14-year-old boy, identified only by initials. These included inappropriate touching by both individuals and oral sex performed by Jackson.

In the statement, Jackson allegedly said the boy ran away from his parents in September 2009 and came to live at her house in Webster County. Some of the alleged acts occurred there, while others were said to have occurred at the boy’s grandfather’s house in Lebanon.

The statement also said Sheriff Roye Cole interviewed the boy, who provided other details and added that he had sex with Jackson twice in Dallas County and oral sex once in Webster County. The boy said in his statement that Jackson would pick him up at the end of his driveway and then find somewhere to park so they could have sex.

In his probable cause statement, Sergeant Kyle Heidler of the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office said the boy told him that on two separate occasions between March and September, Jackson, a friend of the boy’s family, had sexual intercourse with the boy in a vehicle in Dallas County. The boy said that for privacy purposes they went into a field hidden from the road.

On Nov. 27, 2010, the mother of the boy reported he had sexual contact with Jackson. A family member had seen cell-phone text messages of a sexual nature between Jackson and the boy, the report said. The family member then used the cell phone, pretending to be the boy, and text messaged Jacksons cell phone, Do you remember the time we had sex? And Jackson allegedly replied, Yes, and it was amazing, baby.

Heidler reported that on Dec. 21, the boy disclosed he had sex with Jackson sometime between May and July 2010 in a vehicle in a field entrance near his home. The boy said he was high from marijuana and pills, and his libido was heightened. According to the report, he asked Jackson to pick him up, and she drove her Chevy Equinox to the field entrance. The boy said they had sex in the back of the vehicle. Jackson later would speak about the sex they had, and they planned to have sex at another time, the report said. He said that during these conversations, Jackson expressed her love for him.

Heidler said that when he interviewed Jackson, she told him she had performed oral sex on the boy in her vehicle in Lebanon on July 27, 2010. According to the report, Jackson said she was addicted to pain pills at the time and sometimes does not remember things that have happened after taking the pills. She said she did not remember if she had intercourse with the boy on this evening.

Dont brag about it


A 21-year-old day care worker charged with statutory rape apparently bragged to co-workers that she had been impregnated by a 14-year-old boy, police said.

Murfreesboro Police investigators suspect Samantha S. Kranzke, of 139 Merritt Drive in La Vergne, had sex with the teen at least once in February. She was arrested Friday after admitting to having sexual contact with the boy.

Murfreesboro Police spokesman Kyle Evans said authorities do not suspect Kranzke had any kind of sexual contact with children at the day care. It is unclear how Kranzke met her teen victim. MPD Detective Tommy Roberts was assigned to investigate the case after the teen's mother informed officers she received a phone call from Kranzke asking her not to prosecute her.

Im a facebook victim not scammer


The so-called Facebook predator has broken her silence amid revelations she has had sex with at least one 15-year-old boy - and claims to have slept with other teenagers. The mother of one victim has also come forward saying police could have stopped her a year ago but failed to act when approached.

The bizarre world of Natalia Yvette Burgess, 28, has been unravelled by the Herald on Sunday. The newspaper has exposed a myriad of online fantasy worlds driven through social networking websites and aimed at schoolboys - a week after  Ms Burgess was exposed as the woman at the centre of a police inquiry.

Ms Burgess has created multiple fake Facebook personalities in which she has posed as a number of attractive teenage girls. Among others, she has used the names Amie Marie West, Laura Jane West, Jordz Williams, Becca Maria Jullienne, Abby Jane Zoe William and Racheal Marie Drent.

The Herald on Sunday has also established that she has carried the fantasies over into real life, claiming to have had sex with boys more than 10 years her junior after meeting them online. The mother of one teenage boy says her complaint was ignored by police - and she still doesn't know if her son slept with Ms Burgess at the illegal age of 15.

And the mother of another teenage boy who Ms Burgess had sex with has said a senior police officer was removed from the case after he told her boys were less affected as victims of sexual predators than girls. Police confirmed that both women had been in contact with officers over issues relating to Ms Burgess.

Common fantasy themes have also emerged from the online world Ms Burgess inhabits:
She will approach the mother of teenage boys she has had sex with to tell them that she is pregnant.

Burgess uses images of pregnancy scans and photographs of positive pregnancy tests as proof. She claims to be the mother of a three-year-old child fatally injured in a car accident. The story shifts between the accident just happening - or the child being on life support about to be disconnected. She will use one online persona to tell victims that another false identity has committed suicide, describing how she found the body and detailing the reasons for the death - sometimes making an emotional connection to the boy.

When the schemes go sour, Ms Burgess will threaten the families of the boys she has become involved with.
Ms Burgess was back on Facebook last week using profiles which the Herald on Sunday has connected to some of the false identities she uses on the internet.

She had gone to church on Sunday morning with her religious family where she had to cope with the public revelation that she was the woman dubbed "the Facebook predator".

She said she did not carry out the online scam alone - and named as an accomplice a man who had previously called himself a victim. Investigations into Ms Burgess by the police continue with inquiries focused in Christchurch where up to 40 students at St Thomas of Canterbury school were caught up in her online world.

Police say Ms Burgess used multiple online aliases with false photographs to convince the boys they were forming internet relationships with girls their own age. The mother of a Wellington teenager told the Herald on Sunday she was horrified to find Burgess was still targeting teenagers after her 15-year-old son entered a physical relationship with her.

The woman - who cannot be named for legal reasons - said she first met Ms Burgess among the spectators at a school cricket match when her son was aged 15. She said she asked her son if Ms Burgess - about 23 at the time - was "a bit old" for him "but it was sort of palmed off".

"It's not easy questioning your teenagers too closely," she said.

It later emerged Ms Burgess had first met the boy's 18-year-old brother through NZDating.com.

But she said Ms Burgess learned her son had a younger brother and she approached and "friended" him over Facebook. The truth of their relationship emerged months later after the teenager disappeared one evening.

At a family meeting after he returned, it emerged he had been seeing Ms Burgess and had been having sex with the older woman. It later emerged both her boys had lost their virginity to Ms Burgess but it was only the 15-year-old who she continued seeing.

The woman said Ms Burgess not only saw her son for sex in the evening but would also do so during the day, when the boy would have been in school uniform. She said Ms Burgess would take the boy to parks and reserves for sex.

Then Ms Burgess rang the woman. "She said she was pregnant to one or the other of the boys. This was our first grandchild and it was one or the other of the boys."

The announcement was a bombshell - and one that the woman was determined to get to the bottom of. She began demanding DNA proof "and that's when the death threats began".

The woman said the threats came from both Ms Burgess and an online persona who claimed to be her sister.

The woman said she and her son went to police. She said the police pursued the case - although the initial detective sergeant investigating the case was replaced after he told her that boys pursued by sexual predators were not as affected in the same way as girls.

She said the officer seemed unsympathetic, calling at one stage to tell her: "You need to get both your boys tested for STDs and HIV." It emerged later that Ms Burgess was not pregnant and had not been. She had claimed to have had a 3-year-old daughter in Westport, yet this also appeared to be untrue.

The woman said the stress of the case placed immense pressure on the family and left her so run down she fell victim to an infection from which she struggled to recover. "It nearly killed me."

Her son had previously been a model student but began truanting, and eventually had to be transferred to another school after teasing over the case turned to bullying, she said. The police involvement did eventully lead to Ms Burgess ending contact. The mother of another teenager said her son was also nominated as the father of a baby that Ms Burgess never had.

Community leader or bedroom leader ?


A woman praised as a community leader for her work running a police activities league for youth was arrested Monday for an alleged sexual relationship with a teenage boy.

Alanna Reichle, 33, of Cathedral City was arrested at her home on Via Assisi and booked into the Indio jail on multiple counts of statutory rape and oral copulation with a minor.

Reichle is suspected of having an ongoing sexual relationship with a 17-year-old male victim, Cathedral City police Lt. Chuck Robinson said.

He said the relationship was thought to have started when the youth was 16. Under California law, sex with anyone under 18 is considered rape.

According to court records, Reichle posted $50,000 bail and was released from custody on Tuesday. Her arraignment is scheduled for July 13 at the Larson Justice Center in Indio. Reichle is the director of the Western Coachella Valley Police Activities League and is employed in that position as a civilian staff member by the Palm Springs Police Department.

Reichle has been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation, interim Palm Springs police Chief Al Franz told The Desert Sun on Wednesday.

Franz said the police department is cooperating with Cathedral City investigators, who informed the Palm Springs department about the arrest on Monday night. Reichle is separated from Riverside County sheriff's Sgt. Ken Reichle, according to court records. He filed for divorce in May 2010. Two children also were named in the court papers.

Richard Jenkins, president of the Palm Springs Youth League — a baseball and softball league for children ages 4 to 15 said he was shocked when he heard the news of Reichle's arrest.

Jenkins said he knows Reichle through her work with PAL since both are involved in youth activities in Palm Springs. He said she had worked extremely hard to raise money and build support for the organization.

As of Wednesday, the case was under investigation and Robinson said the exact number of counts against Reichle had yet to be determined.

The case had not been filed with the Riverside County district attorney as of Wednesday afternoon, said spokesman John Hall.

Reichle served three years as the Palm Springs Police Department drug prevention officer before taking over the Police Activities League in 2007, according to The Desert Sun archive.

Reichle has been publicly recognized for her work as PAL director at events including the annual Peace Officers and Public Safety Awards luncheons. In 2008, she was presented with the Service to Youth award and in 2009, Western Coachella Valley PAL was named Outstanding Community Program. Among her many community service activities, she spearheads a Christmas food drive for homebound seniors.

Police chiefs wife caught in the act


 The wife of Powers' police chief pleaded guilty Friday to having sex with a 17-year-old boy. Sonya Davis pleaded guilty to two counts of sex abuse. Though she admitted having sex with the boy on at least four different occasions, she was charged for only two.

Circuit Court Judge Martin Stone sentenced Davis to 60 days in the Coos County jail and three years' probation.
Davis, 40, must register as a sex offender and must complete a sex offender treatment program after she is released from jail. Sex between an adult and a 17-year-old is a crime in Oregon because the teen is considered too young to give consent.

Woman set free for being victim


An Australian woman who sexually abused a teenage boy with learning disabilities has walked free from court this afternoon. The Melbourne woman, who cannot be identified, was today described by a County Court judge as having a tragic upbringing which included being sexually abused by three men.

The woman pleaded guilty to two counts of sexual penetration of a child under 16. The boy was 14 and the woman, a family friend, was aged 25 when the offences occurred in 2008.

The judge said the boy, who had attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and obsessive compulsive disorder had told the woman he was sexually curious and wanted to engage in sexual activity. The woman told the boy that he could perform sexual acts on her. The judge said this was a gross breach of trust by the woman and that she was in a position of responsibility to set boundaries.

trainspotting


A 21-year-old woman had sex with five schoolboys after propositioning them in the street, a court heard. Samantha Armstrong approached the teenagers - believed to be aged around 15 and 16 - and asked them if they wanted to have sex with her.
She then took them to a building near a railway line and took turns having sex with each of them, The Sun reports.

Armstrong, who had been smoking cannabis, and the boys were in full view of the train line during their encounter at Abbey Wood, in south London.
Passengers who were travelling on the line spotted what was going on and called the police. The woman was arrested. Three of the boys were questioned after two ran away from officers.

Armstrong from Gravesend, Kent, admitted outraging public decency and possessing cannabis resin at Greenwich Magistrates' Court in South-East London. She appeared nervous and giggled as she sat in the dock.

A psychologist told the court Armstrong had 'difficulties appreciating what is appropriate behaviour' but was not mentally ill.
Defending Tatinder Sokhal said her client lacked self-esteem and self confidence
Armstrong will be sentenced on May 16 and is likely to get a community penalty.
According to The Sun a source said after the case: 'To the boys it was like all their Christmases and Easter had come at once. 'Armstrong didn't realise they could be seen.'
