James Young III – Internet Predator – Also had Child Porn


A Farwell man, arrested in Marshall in June for allegedly enticing a child to have sex, was ordered Tuesday to stand trial.

James Young III, 34, was arrested June 15 —Fathers Day — when he arrived at a Marshall McDonald’s expecting to meet a 13-year-old girl, according to Calhoun County Sheriff Department deputies.

During testimony in district court Tuesday, a witness from Perverted Justice testified she exchanged sexually explicit messages with Young, who used the name Fredold_2000. The woman, Nancy Popham of Mt. Vernon, Ohio, testified she pretended to be a 13-year-old girl from Marshall with an online name of Kylieblue.

Perverted Justice is a Web site that trains people to search for Internet sexual predators and works with police to catch them. She used Marshall because of past cases investigated by Perverted Justice working with the sheriff department, prosecutors said.

Popham testified that Young suggested a meeting so he could spend the night with the girl in a hotel room, shower and have oral sex.

“If it was possible not to get in trouble would you think about having sex with me,” Popham said Young wrote her on May 24.

She said Young also sent three pictures of himself, including one of him naked with an erection.

Popham, pretending to be the young girl, agreed to meet Young at the restaurant but when he walked to the counter after smiling at a teenage girl who was inside with deputies as a decoy, Detective Guy Picketts said he walked up and said, “Jim, Calhoun County Sheriff Department. You are under arrest. Put your hands on the counter and don’t get stupid.”

During an interview after his arrest, Young told Picketts he had child porn on his computer and prosecutors played a small portion of a video for Judge Marvin Ratner.

After the testimony, Assistant Prosecutor David Heiss asked to change the charges from enticing a child for immoral purposes to possession of child sexually abusive material, use of a computer to possess the material and attempted third-degree criminal sexual abuse. The judge granted the motion.

Defense Attorney Ken Marks argued there is no way to determine the age of the people depicted in the video seized from the computer and that his client did nothing to attempt to have sex with the young girl in the restaurant.

“He just showed up at a McDonald’s,” Marks said.

Ratner disagreed.

“He appeared at a McDonald’s with the intent to meet someone he believed to be a 13-year-old girl,” the judge said, “and start a chain of events which would end in a sexual act.”

If convicted on all charges Young faces up to seven years in prison. He remains in the county jail.

Donald Edward Young – Repeat Sex Offender – Habitual Child Molester

Police continued the investigation and on Tuesday charged Young with first-degree statutory sex offense, indecent liberties with a child and crimes against nature. The three charges were all related to crimes the suspect committed this year against a 5-year-old boy who lives in the Old Fayetteville Road area, near Young’s residence, Keel said. The boy is not related to the suspect, the detective added.

Leland police have arrested and charged a 64-year-old man with both failing to register as a sex offender and committing sex crimes against a 5-year-old boy.

Donald Edward Young was required by law to have registered as a sex offender in the state within 10 days of being released from the N.C. Department of Correction, where he served seven years on embezzlement charges, said Leland police Detective John Keel. But after he was released in January 2006, he moved to Southport without letting authorities know that he had previously been convicted of sex crimes against children in Massachusetts and become a registered sex offender in that state, Keel said.

About a year and a half ago, Young moved to Leland, and his latest address was in the 300 block of Old Fayetteville Road, the police detective said. A police investigation revealed Young’s failure to register as a sex offender, and he was arrested on that felony charge on Aug. 5, Keel said.

The boy is not related to the suspect, the detective added.

Young is disabled and did not have a job, said Keel. The suspect’s first court appearance on the new felony charges is set for Friday morning at the Brunswick County courthouse, and he’s being held at the county jail with bond set at $280,000.

Mother arrested for leaving children with Repeat Sex Offender


A Panola County, Texas, woman has been arrested on charges she left two children in the care of a convicted sex offender. The boys, ages 2 and 3, were molested, authorities said.

The man has also been arrested.

“We have a woman that already knew that he had been arrested for sex crimes,” Panola County Sheriff Jack Ellett said in explaining the arrest of Whitney Williams, 19, on charges of endangering a child.

Panola investigators said Williams left the 2- and 3-year-olds with her uncle, Kevin Deon Williams of Carthage.

Kevin Williams molested the boys while babysitting them one day earlier this month, Ellett said.

He is also accused of indecency with another child for inappropriately touching a 9-year-old boy on another day, Ellett said. That little boy had also been left in Williams’ care, Ellett said.

All three children have been placed in foster care.

Whitney Williams is jailed on a $400,000 bond. Kevin Williams is jailed under $1.5 million bond.
