Jeffrey Brisson and Harold Spurling BABY RAPER PEDOPHILES


Newly released arrest and search warrants served on two city men accused of sexually assaulting a 3-month-old baby reveal they were likely using local children to make pornographic movies and one man admitted the duo preferred molesting children under the age of 9.

Jeffrey Brisson, 29, and Harold Spurling, 39, were arrested Jan. 30 after police serving a warrant for the sexual assault of a young boy, which occured over the course of nine years, found a 3-month-old girl in the apartment whom the duo had videotaped, police said.

Both men were in New Britain Superior Court Monday when Judge Joan Alexander unsealed the search warrants used to gather evidence against both men.

During questioning, Spurling told officers the two molested children and he preferred having sex with boys ages 4 to 9 while Brisson preferred male and female infants and toddlers, according to one of the warrants.

The warrant indicates that Brisson and Spurling repeatedly committed sexual acts with a Middletown victim that began nine years ago when the boy was 5. The boy told police he thought he had been videotaped while performing sexual acts, police said.

Police started investigating Brisson and Spurling Jan. 4 after a city middle-school staff member received an anonymous flier providing information that the two were using the Internet to engage in “pedophile activities.” Officers were able to confirm that the flier wasn’t a hoax by determining that one of the addresses listed on the sheet was that of a 14-year-old boy now living in Middletown.

The warrant indicates that, during an interview with police Jan. 29, Brisson admitted the boy may have seen a Hustler magazine at their home when he came to visit. Both men declined to allow police to examine their computers that day.

Police contacted the 14-year-old boy and he admitted that both men had committed sexual acts with him and Brisson had often shown him pornographic videos and photos of children when he came to visit, according to a warrant. The teen said the victims in the shots appeared to be as young as 5 to 9 years old. He said Brisson had committed a sexual act with him the last time he was at the apartment Jan. 18.

Armed with arrest and search warrants, police arrived Jan. 30 to find the two refusing to allow them entry into their apartment. Once inside police found a 3-month-old girl in the home, which was filled with animal feces and urine, according to the warrant.

Police also discovered that while they were trying to stall police from entering, the men had shredded paper documents and had started an encryption process to hide computer materials, police said. When the process was stopped, police discovered the video the pair was attempting to erase was of Brisson sexually assaulting the baby. Other videos and images showed Brisson and Spurling with city children recognizable to Youth Bureau officers, according to the warrant.

Police also seized a tripod and other video and still photography recording devices and numerous disks containing sexual assaults of young victims during the search, according to the warrant. Detailed photographs of the apartment will be used to determine if the two were using the location to film other child pornography.

Both men were arrested by warrant on charges of fourth-degree sexual assault, four counts of illegal sexual contact and risk of injury for the teen’s assaults.

Brisson was also charged with first-degree sexual assault, three counts of risk of injury, employing a minor in an obscene performance, tampering with evidence and interfering with a search warrant in connection with the baby’s assault.

Spurling was also charged with tampering with evidence, risk of injury and interfering with a search warrant. Brisson has been held on $3 million bond and Spurling on $2 million bond since their arrest. More charges may be pending.

Their cases were continued Monday until May 20.

Martin Cusick – Repeat Sex offender – CAPTURED Pedophile Absconder

“25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years”
………Sarah Tofte

A registered sex offender who went missing in Scotland three years ago has been arrested in Canada and is awaiting extradition.

Martin Cusick, 52, a former police officer, was sentenced to a five-year jail term for abusing three girls, one aged six.

As a registered sex offender, Cusick, from Clarkston near Glasgow, was supposed to tell authorities whenever he changed address.

Last month Strathclyde Police issued details of Cusick two-and-a-half years after he had disappeared from police supervision. It was later discovered he had moved to Canada.

He was picked up by officers in South Porcupine in Ontario on Thursday.

Canadian police were aware he was in the area and his description was circulated. He was spotted by officers and arrested after he disembarked from a local bus.

Marc Depatie, of South Porcupine police, said: “The South Porcupine crime unit deployed itself in areas likely to yield a sighting of the wanted person and, as it happened, it worked out quite well.

“Thanks to photos provided to assist officers, he was seen walking on Highway 101 toward South Porcupine and was arrested without incident.

“There was no immediate threat to public safety, but, given his background, he has been designated a high-risk sex offender.

“There was no resistance with his arrest. He knew there was a warrant out in his name and for the most part he was compliant.”

Cusick left the police in 1991 and has held down a number of other jobs, including lorry driving, raising concerns that he could be working anywhere in the UK.

Originally from the city’s Pollok area, he signed up for the old City of Glasgow Police on the same day as his identical twin brother and triplet sister. He was married with two children when he was convicted of his offences.

A spokeswoman for Strathclyde Police said: “We are grateful for the positive response that we had to the appeal for information regarding Mr Cusick. We are working closely with our colleagues in Canada and the Procurator Fiscal here has been informed of Mr Cusick’s arrest.”

Police in Canada were unable to say when Cusick had arrived in Canada or give details of his movements since he arrived. Although not considered an immediate risk by Scottish police, the public was advised not to approach him.

Cusick was transported to North Bay, in the Ontario area, where he was expected to be handed over to Immigration Canada personnel. He will be extradited to the UK, where he will face additional arrest warrants in Scotland.

Cusick’s disappearance was revealed by police, who earlier this month also issued photographs of another two missing paedophiles, Indian Surjit Singh and Malawian Frank Mvula, who are also believed to have fled the country.

The force said it knew where all but five of its 1100 registered sex offenders were. Singh and Mvula, both of whom were convicted of indecent assaults on women, had failed to comply with rules under which they must keep in contact with authorities after they leave prison.

Steven Ruby – Repeat Sex Offender gets 13 years for Child Porn

“25% of all sex offenders re-offend within 15 years”
………Sarah Tofte


An Aurora man has been sentenced to prison for possessing child pornography he sought to distribute.

Steven Ruby, 44, of the 200 block of South LaSalle Street, Aurora, was sentenced Monday to 13 years in prison possession of child pornography with intent to disseminate, the Kane County state’s attorney’s office said.

Ruby was convicted Feb. 22, Judge Tim Sheldon after a bench trial that concluded Jan. 28.

On April 27, 2005, parole agents making a routine visit found printed images of child pornography in Ruby’s bedroom, prosecutors said. Officers later then found printed images stored in aluminum cooking trays in his refrigerator and about 1,000 images of child pornography on his computer, prosecutors said.

Authorities also found more than 2,500 images and more than 100 movies of child pornography, prosecutors said. The images and movies depicted children as young as infants engaged in various sex acts, prosecutors said.

Ruby’s was convicted aggravated sexual abuse in Kendall County in 1989; failure to register as a sex offender in Kane County in 1998 and possession of child pornography with intent to disseminate in Kane County in 2001.

Ruby was given credit for 1,094 days he has already spent in the Kane County jail.

“This sentence demonstrates the deplorable nature of child pornography,” said Assistant State’s Attorney Justin Fitzsimmons, who prosecuted the case.
