Delaware State Police charged a 31-year-old Frankford man with sexual harassment and endangering the welfare of a child after he was spotted by a trooper on patrol last night allegedly soliciting a teenager.

At approximately 8:46 p.m., the trooper encountered a suspicious pick-up truck on a private drive off Irons Lane east of Dagsboro, said state police spokesman Cpl. John Barnett Jr.

The trooper conducted a field stop of the parked vehicle and found two individuals inside. One occupant was Kevin G. Wilkerson, 31, of Frankford, and the other was a 16-year-old boy from Dagsboro, Barnett said.

Wilkerson is a convicted sex offender and it was learned he allegedly solicited the boy for oral sex for a fee of $90. Wilkerson was taken into custody, and the boy was interviewed, Barnett said.

In subsequent interviews, Wilkerson reportedly confessed to sexually soliciting the boy, Barnett said. He was formally charged with endangering the welfare of a child and sexual harassment attempting to induce sexual contact.

Wilkerson was arraigned and committed to the Sussex Correctional Institution in lieu of $3,500 bond.

Wilkerson is a registered Tier-2 (moderate risk) sex offender stemming from a 2001 conviction for sexual harassment and a 2003 conviction fo second-degree unlawful sexual contact. Wilkerson was in compliance with the sex offender registry at the time of the alleged incident, Barnett said.

Hector Fuentes – Self described Pedophile and school employee

“he described himself as a pedophile and that on the day
he came to that realization, he cried.”


For the second time in a week, a Valley school district employee is facing a child pornography charge for looking at sexually explicit materials involving children on the Internet.

Thursday, Hector Fuentes, a mechanic for the Kyrene School District, learned he is facing one count of possessing child pornography.

A criminal complaint filed in federal court indicates he “described himself as a pedophile and that on the day he came to that realization, he cried.” He also referred to his problems as “a big demon” and a “sickness”. He “has prayed to God” for help.

Earlier in the week, FBI agents arrested Victor Scott McPeak Jr., a fifth grade teacher at Surprise’s Arizona Charter Academy, on a similar charge.

Kyrene School District officials confirmed Fuentes’ employment but could not verify whether he had any contact with children during his work experience with the district.

According to court documents, Fuentes claims he “never inappropriately touched a child” and tries to never allow himself to be “alone in the same room with a child.”

Kingston Police Chief Bill Closs has issued a warning to the public after a repeat sex offender was released from prison March 20.

In the interest of community safety, Closs, under the authority of the Police Services Act of Ontario, disclosed the release of James Robert Bateman, a 50-year-old white male who served his entire sentence without treatment.

Bateman was first convicted of sexually assaulting an adult female in the Kingston area and received a three-year sentence in 1985. After numerous further sexual assaults of underage females, he was sentenced to eight years in a federal penitentiary.

Bateman was again convicted of sexual offences on children in 2002 and received another federal sentence.

On Jan. 14, 2005, Bateman was released after serving his entire sentence but was sent back to prison after breaching conditions of his release.

Bateman was released March 20 after serving that entire sentence without participating in a sexual treatment program.

Bateman is a white male, 5’4”, 200 lbs., with long gray/brown hair and blue eyes.

He is on probation for three years with a number of conditions in relation to reporting. He must not associate with persons under the age of 14 or be found in parks, playgrounds, swimming areas, schools, daycare centres and community centres.

Robert Gerald White – He shoulda taken the plea – Too Late

The last of three men caught in the Harris County “To Catch a Predator” sting who wanted a trial was sentenced Wednesday to seven years in prison.

The hearing for Robert Gerald White, 33, came more than a month after his conviction by a Dalton, Ga., jury on charges of attempted child molestation and attempted statutory rape. He sat quietly as Harris County Superior Court Judge Frank Jordan Jr. announced the seven-year prison sentence, followed by 13 years on probation — a contrast from the shouting and loud noises coming from White as he waited in a holding cell.

“The sentence of imprisonment given was a little less than we urged for, but we are satisfied with the sentence imposed,” said Chief Assistant District Attorney Mark Post.

Prosecution and defense attorneys battled before the judge issued his sentence, arguing about the circumstances that led White to a Fortson, Ga., home in July 2006 as part of the Dateline NBC show.

Twenty men were arrested in that sting, though only three wanted trials.

Athens-based attorney Mo Wiltshire Jr. told Jordan his client had psychological issues, a limited intelligence and hardly any social skills. He pointed to a probation officer’s report, which states White isn’t a stereotypical predator. White wasn’t specifically looking for an underage girl to have sex with, Wiltshire said. He was looking for anyone.

“He doesn’t function the way the rest of us function,” Wiltshire said. “What he needs is to get his head straight.”

Wiltshire asked for six months incarceration, followed by 10 years on probation for his client. He also asked Jordan to order White to remain on medication, which the attorney said has helped.

Post asked Jordan to remember White drove more than three hours from his Carlton, Ga., home to meet someone he thought was a 15-year-old girl. He told the judge White learned the alleged girl’s age within four minutes of chatting with her online and turned the conversation sexual within 15 minutes.

“If he meets a 10-year-old, 12-year-old, 14-year-old, he’s not going to turn them down,” Post said. “He’s attempted to delay or derail his trial by committing suicide or attempting to commit suicide. He started acting up this morning.”

Post asked for more than 10 years and a $50,000 fine, which Jordan decided against.

Wiltshire said his client would appeal the case to the Georgia Court of Appeals.

“If he’s not a predator and not a pedophile, why should he be sentenced as one?” Wiltshire questioned after the proceeding. “Judges have tough jobs. They have to make tough decisions.”

White’s case was the third out of the 20 men caught to reach trial. Jordan granted the three who wanted a trial — White, Marvin Harrison Smith, 36, and Reymundo Anguiano, 25 — a change of venue in June.

The first of the three Georgia men who wanted a trial, Anguiano, of Albany, was found guilty Oct. 3 by a Gray, Ga., jury. Anguiano was sentenced to seven years in prison, followed by eight years probation, on charges of attempted child molestation and attempted enticing a child for indecent purposes.

Smith, of Tifton, was convicted Nov. 7 by a Dalton jury of attempted child molestation, attempted enticing a child for indecent purposes and obstructing or hindering law enforcement officers. He was sentenced to 13 years in prison, followed by 12 years probation.

Fifteen others caught in the sting have pleaded guilty. The remaining two caught by “To Catch a Predator” are Cody Michael Green, 21, and Abilash Bhaskaran, 35, both of Alpharetta. Green is back in jail on similar charges; Bhaskaran has fled.

Robin Wood – Daycare Worker – Assaulted children – Guilty

“How do you explain to your child
that someone thought it was OK to touch them
sexually when they were little?”


A packed courtroom was divided Wednesday.

On one side, about 40 supporters of 60-year-old Robin Wood, who was sentenced to 10 to 30 years in prison for sexually assaulting two girls at his wife’s home day care. They say he is innocent.

Showing support: Mary Wood, the wife of convicted child molester Robin Wood, speaks outside Circuit Court Judge Paula Manderfield’s courtroom Wednesday morning. Moments before, Robin Wood was sentenced to 10 to 30 years in prison. “We will appeal this,” Mary Wood said. She stood by her husband’s plea of innocence throughout the trial.

On the other, about two dozen friends and families of the victims, now 5 and 11 years old.

“He’s a sick and disgusting man who took the trust and innocence of young children,” said an aunt of one of the victims as she read a letter during the hearing in Ingham County Circuit Court Judge Paula Manderfield’s courtroom. Her name is not being released in order to protect the identity of the victim.

The woman occasionally had to stop reading to compose herself.

In January, a jury found Wood guilty of four counts of criminal sexual conduct involving the girls. Two of the counts were first-degree criminal sexual conduct, which carried a maximum punishment of life in prison. The charges involved penetration with fingers. Wood said he would occasionally hug the children or rub their backs, but he never touched the children for sexual reasons.

As the aunt as well as the mother of the victims read letters asking for the maximum sentence, Wood stood stone-faced, looking in the direction of the victims’ families.

“I still maintain the fact that I am innocent of this crime,” said Wood, who had smiled and waved to family and supporters as he walked into the courtroom, his wrists shackled to a belt around his waist.

Wood’s family and his attorney said he will appeal the conviction.

The mother of the 5-year-old victim said Wood had violated her daughter physically, emotionally and spiritually.

“How do you explain to your child that someone thought it was OK to touch them sexually when they were little?” she read from her letter.

After the hearing, the Lansing woman was visibly elated that the sentence could keep Wood in prison for life.

“We’re just really pleased it’s over,” she said.

A General Motors Corp. retiree, Robin Wood testified at trial that he began assisting in caring for children after his 2003 retirement.

Police closed Mary’s Quality Daycare on Jan. 19, 2007. A parent had told the state Department of Human Services about possible crimes.

Mary Wood lost her license. Her husband was charged in February.

After Wednesday’s hearing, the Woods’ family and friends – including many parents whose children had attended the day care – displayed a vocal and organized show of support outside the courtroom. They held signs saying, “Free Robin Wood,” as they chanted the same phrase.

Dozens had tried to hold up the signs in court, but Manderfield would not allow it.

They made clear that they stand behind Wood; many submitted letters to Manderfield on behalf of Wood.

“I couldn’t wait to have my daughter so she could go to that day care,” said Alyssa Hernandez, 18, who began attending the day care when she was 4 years old.

“He was everything – a father figure, a grandpa to me,” she added.

“I believe this is all a big misunderstanding,” said Lynne Lipka, who sent her two girls and two boys to the day care from about 1992 to 2000.

The 41-year-old Lansing woman said that after charges against Wood were announced, she asked all her children if Wood had ever done anything inappropriate to them or even seen inappropriate behavior. Her children typically would see him at overnights, pizza parties and other events.

All four “adamantly said, no, not Robin,” Lipka said.

Mary Wood said she would never support a child predator.

“If I would have thought he was guilty, I would have been on the other side of the courtroom,” she said.

Yolanda Fattoum of Lansing, who worked at the day care nearly five years until it was closed down, said: “Mary and Robin are the only people I would trust to watch my children.”

When Fattoum’s 2 1/2 year old son saw Robin on the news, he cried, said Fattoum, 24.

“He loves Robin so much,” she said.
