Adam Lee Anderson – ormer Fort Jackson drill instructor – 57 months in prison for child porn


A former Fort Jackson drill instructor will serve a sentence of 57 months imprisonment.

Adam Lee Anderson, 29, of Columbia, was convicted of possession of child pornography.

Anderson admitted to possessing approximately 140 images of child pornography on his off-base home computer last April. Anderson, who at the time was a drill instructor at Fort Jackson, was identified in an FBI investigation as having paid for access to web sites selling child pornography.

Agents seized Anderson’s computer, and a forensic examination of the hard drive confirmed the presence of the illegal images.

Following his release from prison, Anderson will be supervised by federal probation officers for the rest of his life. While on supervised release, he will be required to register as a sex offender, be prohibited from accessing the internet, and be prohibited from having unsupervised contact with minors.

The case was investigated by agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Dean A. Eichelberger of the Columbia office handled the case.

Matthew Glasser – Noncompliant Sex Offender

Sarah Tofte of the Human Rights Watch says 25% of all sex offenders
re-offend within 15 years

This defendant has continued to indicate that he has done nothing wrong

Former Northwest Catholic High School music teacher Matthew Glasser, who was placed on the state sex offender registry after pleading guilty to having a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old student, has been charged with violating conditions of his probation.

Glasser, 32, failed to find a place to live that was an adequate distance from schools and parks where minors frequent, according to the arrest warrant affidavit filed by his probation officer. He also continued to maintain his Internet and e-mail accounts, including a MySpace account, although the court prohibited him from having online access, the affidavit said.

He was ordered Tuesday to be in court March 7 for a hearing on the violation of probation charge.

Glasser, of Ann Street in Tolland, had received a seven-year suspended prison term, plus five years of probation, at his sentencing on Oct. 17, 2007. He had pleaded guilty earlier in the year to five counts of fourth-degree sexual assault and one count of tampering with a witness. He was fired from his job in 2005.

His probation officer, Lisa Manderville-McGeough, said Glasser consistently failed to comply with the conditions of his probation, according to the 17-page arrest affidavit.

Among the other conditions were that he not have any unsupervised contact with any child under the age of 16, that he register as a sex offender under Megan’s Law and that he complete a sex-offender evaluation and treatment.

Glasser’s relationship with his probation officer has been contentious since their first meeting, two days after his sentencing. They repeatedly clashed over issues such housing, employment and the use of the Internet.

During that first meeting, according to the affidavit, Glasser said, “My family has taken the legislative stance that I did not commit the offense that I was arrested for and I did nothing illegal.”

In that meeting, Glasser admitted giving voice lessons to a 13-year-old girl. He told the teenager’s family that “he did not commit his offense and that they believed him and want him to continue to teach his daughter,” the arrest warrant said.

Manderville-McGeough asked her supervisor to meet with Glasser about the conditions of his probation. When she met with Glasser again, according to the affidavit, he asked, “If I become your pal, would I get privileges?”

Later, the warrant says, he told Manderville-McGeough that he did not understand the conditions of his probation because he has a “learning disability.”

According to state law, registered sex offenders must get approval from their probation officers before they move into neighborhoods where minor children live. The state probation office has denied Glasser’s requests to live at addresses in Hartford, South Windsor, Tolland, Vernon, Manchester, Wethersfield and Plainville, because minors live on those streets or schools are located nearby.

When Manderville-McGeough suggested that Glasser move to a Hartford homeless shelter, Glasser did so for one night, then moved back into his family’s home in South Windsor. He later moved to his current address in Tolland, after the homeowner told another court official that there were very few minors living in the neighborhood, which the probation officer said was later proven to be false.

At his arraignment Tuesday before Superior Court Judge David Gold, Glasser’s lawyer, John Kelly, said his client moved back to his parents’ house in South Windsor from the shelter because he had been approached by drug dealers.

“I don’t think it is reasonable for probation to ask him to live in a homeless shelter,” Kelly said.

Prosecutor Sandra Tullius said Glasser has continued to flout the orders of this court.

When he was arrested on Tuesday, Glasser told authorities he was still living on Ann Street in Tolland, a residence that is prohibited by the conditions of his probation because 14 minors live in the neighborhood.

“He wants to live where he wants to live. This defendant has continued to indicate that he has done nothing wrong,” Tullius said.

Glasser’s original charges stem from a relationship he had with a female student, who is not being identified by The Courant because of her age and the nature of their relationship. In court papers, the victim described a relationship that advanced from friendship to Internet chats and late-night cellphone calls, to a sexual relationship.

For several weeks in April and May 2005, the warrant says, Glasser urged the girl to sneak out of her family’s home in Bloomfield in the middle of the night. In April 2005, Glasser started taking the teenager to his apartment to watch movies, and they later started exchanging more explicit e-mails, cellphone calls and instant messages, the warrant says.

Their relationship came to light when the girl reported that she might be pregnant.

Gold set Glasser’s bail at $75,000 and ordered him to follow the instructions of his probation officer in the meantime.

Robert "Dolly" Dunn – Final insult to his victims of child molestation


NOTORIOUS pedophile Robert “Dolly” Dunn is fighting a compensation bill of more than $250,000 owed to his victims – despite being on his deathbed.

Dunn is fighting to the bitter end a provisional order handed down by the Victims Compensation Tribunal.

This is despite the jailed criminal – once described by a judge as having no contrition – being gravely ill in Long Bay jail hospital. Dunn is battling what is believed to be an AIDS-related illness.

The tribunal has received claims from 14 of Dunn’s victims and all have either already been paid or payment is under way.

It is understood the tribunal has now ordered that Dunn, 66, repay the Victims Compensation Fund for the total of the payments.

It is one of the largest payments ordered against a criminal because of the large number of Dunn’s victims and the ongoing psychological trauma caused by child sexual molestation

Individual victims of crime can each claim up to $50,000 for every offence in their applications to the tribunal, which take into account the cost of ongoing counselling.

Multiple appeals

Dunn’s legal action in the tribunal adds to a string of legal appeals he has made against his convictions.

He was ordered to serve 20 years in jail in 1997 after pleading guilty to 24 sex offences against boys aged seven to 15, including oral and anal intercourse. He used cash and drugs to groom boys into having sex.

The previous year, he fled the country during the Wood Royal Commission into police corruption, when footage emerged of him molesting boys, and had to be extradited back to Australia to face charges.

A Department of Corrective Services spokesman said yesterday that Dunn was still “gravely ill”.

He is one of dozens of child molesters who have been ordered to compensate the Victims Compensation Fund to cover the costs of compensation claimed by their victims.

Obtained figures reveal that in the 2006-2007 financial year, $3.63 million was recovered from convicted criminals.

In November last year, an 86-year-old convicted criminal was ordered to pay back a massive $326,429 for the sexual assault of children.

So far he has paid back $53,650 and now there is an order compelling him to sell property he owns to recover more funds. He is also paying $450-per-month instalments.

Properties sold

Three other child molesters, all aged in their 70s, have been forced to pay back large amounts by having their properties sold off.

These include a 72-year-old man who sexually assaulted four children and was forced to pay back $91,710.

A 77-year-old man was forced to pay back $68,747, and $65,000 was recovered from a 79-year-old prisoner.

Payments awarded to victims of sexual assault by the tribunal last year included $204,000 paid to a woman who was raped and molested by her stepfather and others from the age of eight.

A total of $64.25 million was paid to victims of crime in 2006/2007 – a large proportion to sexual assault victims.

David Flavell – Repeat Sex Offender

Sarah Tofte of the Human Rights Watch says 25% of all sex offenders
re-offend within 15 years


A Level 3 sex offender is scheduled to be in court today, charged with entering a women�s bathroom at a Braintree bookstore where he allegedly peered underneath a wall, startling a woman inside, Braintree police said today.

David Flavell, 38, was arrested Tuesday night in Brockton after two witnesses positively identified him from surveillance video and a photo array as the man who entered the bathroom at the Borders bookstore on Grossman Drive on Jan. 29, Deputy Chief Russell Jenkins said in a statement.

Flavell is to be arraigned today in Quincy District Court on two misdemeanor changes of annoying and accosting a person sexually and disorderly conduct. Jenkins said in the statement that Flavell allegedly entered the women’s room in the store and then stuck his head underneath the wall separating two stalls, startling a 36-year-old Holbrook woman.

Although the two charges against Flavell are misdemeanors and not very serious offenses in the scheme of things, we consider his actions extremely serious and Flavell a very dangerous individual, Jenkins said in his statement.

Using store surveillance video, Braintree Detective Brendan McLaughlin thought he recognized the suspect as the man he had investigated in 2006 for making obscene phone calls to Connecticut’s child protection agency from pay phones in the same general neighborhood as the bookstore.

The Holbrook woman and a second witness then picked out Flavell, and he was arrested in a Brockton donut shop, Jenkins said. The second witness had viewed surveillance video on the Mass Most Wanted website, police said.

Flavell has a prior conviction of assault with intent to rape and three counts of open and gross lewdness, according to his posting at the Massachusetts Sex Offender Registry Board. He is also known as David L. Flavell, David M. Flavell and is identified by Braintree police as David C. Flavell.

He is listed as being homeless. Police said that when he was arrested Flavell was carrying the same backpack he had with him in the store. In it, they found three pairs of work gloves, a black ski mask, and a roll of duct tape
