Wayne Atkinson – Repeat Sex Offender – Violent Child Predator


A former Lee County sheriff’s deputy has been arrested and charged with first degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

The Lee County Sheriff says Atkinson told the girl if she told anyone about the sex acts, he’d kill her.

But she did tell a DSS employee, and now Atkinson is in jail.

According to an arrest warrant, sometime between July and August, Atkinson forced a nine-year-old foster child to perform oral sex on him.

The warrant says he held a gun to her head in a bedroom in his house.

The Lee County Sheriff says the former deputy used his old uniform to intimidate the girl.

The victim is a foster child who deputies say was in the custody of Shirley Jackson, Wayne Atkinson’s girlfriend.

Jackson faces charges of unlawful conduct towards a child because deputies say she would leave the child with Atkinson.

This isn’t the first arrest for Atkinson. A background check shows a domestic violence charge in 1992 and a felony conviction of criminal sexual conduct and a lewd act on a minor in 1994.

Both of those charges came after Atkinson was off the force.

Wayne Atkinson is in jail awaiting a bond hearing, and Shirley Jackson has a $10,000 bond.

Larry Mitchell – 40 year history of molesting children – Confesses – TIMES UP PEDO


Wednesday was the first day in court for the man who confessed to molesting at least 7 children over 40 years.

Evansville Police arrested Larry Mitchell Tuesday on eight counts of child molesting. His alleged victims were ages three to ten years old at the time.

Officers say during their investigation, Mitchell confessed to molesting the children, saying he exposed himself to at least two more.

Police filed the charges initially after a 16-year-old girl told officers at the new Holly’s House, an abuse advocacy center, that Mitchell molested her eight years ago. She said he performed oral sex on her and forced her to perform oral sex on him multiple times in a shed in his yard. Mitchell also allegedly said his wife participated in some of the crimes. However, since the most of the victims are over 31, the statute of limitations in those cases are up and police say she can not be charged.

If you have any information on Larry Mitchell, please contact Detective Brian Turpin at 435-6261.

Jaime Feliciano – Repeat Sex Offender – Had thousands of child porn images


A union leader and convicted sex offender has been arrested and accused of possessing thousands of images of child pornography while living next to a day care center.

Jaime Feliciano, 49, allegedly had thousands of child pornography images on a computer inside his house. The state workers union leader and state insurance department researcher lived right next door to a home day care where a dozen kids come and go every day.

“Obviously, it’s very disturbing to hear that,” said one father who picked up a child from the day care.

Feliciano is a registered sex offender who was previously convicted of lewd acts with a child under 14. The law forbids sex offenders from living close to schools or parks, but not from home day care businesses.
