WANTED: Stephen Alexander Bell – Convicted Child Molester cuts off GPS Monitor and makes a run for it


Chatham County investigators are asking for the public’s help in finding registered sex offender Stephen Alexander Bell.

Bell, 40, was convicted of child molestation in Chatham County in 2004. Classified by the state as a sexually dangerous predator, he was fitted last month with a tracking anklet.

The tracking device was found cut off behind the Chu’s market on Tybrisia Street on Tybee Island Monday. Though Bell was registered as a Tybee resident, it’s unknown where he is or how long exactly he may have been without the tracking device.

Bell’s employer hasn’t seen him since last Wednesday.

Bell is described as a white male, 5’6″ tall, with brown hair and blue eyes. He has a Jolly Roger tattoo on his left shoulder.

Anyone with information about his whereabouts is asked to call Investigator Blanton with the Chatham County Sheriff’s Office Sex Offender Registry and Tracking Unit at 912.652.7697.

Bell faces charges for violating his probation and registered sex offender rules.

Shadowy Pedophiles Exposed

“The Internet allows pedophiles to remain in the shadows.
It’s time to exchange shadows for jail”

The head of Google in Brazil said Wednesday the Internet giant will take actions to stop child pornography and hate crimes on a social-networking website used here – but he did not offer to provide user information to officials.

Alexandre Hohagen’s declaration to a Brazilian Senate panel marked a step forward in efforts to block offensive material from the popular Orkut website.

Last August, federal prosecutors said Google failed to comply with requests to provide information about users who allegedly spread child pornography and hate speech against black people, Jews and homosexuals on Orkut.

Google eliminated the users from Orkut groups but refused to release information about them to authorities, arguing it is bound by U.S. laws guaranteeing freedom of speech.

About 55 per cent of the 60 million-plus Orkut users worldwide are Brazilian.

Hohagen said the company will install filters to stop the spread of child pornography and retain six months of records on users who access or spread illicit material, according to a summary of his testimony presented on the Senate’s website Wednesday. Google now keeps those records for only 30 days.

Google also will advise authorities and provide them copies of the forbidden text and images, Hohagen said.

Hohagen said the new measures will likely be effective by June.

Senators hailed the decision and commended the company’s co-operation.

“The Internet allows pedophiles to remain in the shadows. It’s time to exchange shadows for jail,” Senator Romeu Tuma said.

Carl Skidmore – Repeat Sex Offender


A repeat sex offender is facing the rest of his life in prison after being sentenced on rape and sexual assault charges involving two young relatives.

A Sonoma County judge Monday sentenced Carl Skidmore to 290 years to life in prison after he was convicted in January of multiple counts of rape and sexual assault charges involving an eleven and a 14-year-old girl.

But before that sentence starts, Skidmore — who turns 57 next week — must complete a 25-year sentence for related charges, including trying to hire someone to harm a witness.

After he was charged in the case, Skidmore admitted to separate charges of hiring someone to assault the victims’ brother to prevent the girls from testifying.

Skidmore was previously convicted in 1985 of molesting another female family member.

Anthony Littleton Cannon – Noncompliant Sex Offender Hunting for Prey


A registered sex offender failed to notify a youth sports group in Gulfport of his conviction when he volunteered as a coach, Harrison County Sheriff Melvin Brisolara said.

Deputies today arrested Anthony Littleton Cannon, 30, at his residence on Stratford Place in Gulfport. He was held at the Harrison County jail on $25,000 bond set by Justice Court Judge Albert Fountain.

Cannon was convicted in 1998 on three counts of sexual battery in Denton County, Texas. He registered his address with the Harrison County Sheriff’s Department and the state Department of Public Safety in 2001, the sheriff said.

However, the law requires convicted sex offenders to notify an organization of their past in writing if the offender will have “direct, private and unsupervised contact with minors,” said Brisolara.
