Jeffrey R. Martin – Repeat Sex Offender – Sentenced to DEATH


A Greene County farmhand who raped and murdered a 12-year-old girl was formally sentenced to death today by a judge who tacked on 23 to 46 years in prison.

Judge H. Terry Grimes also declared Jeffrey R. Martin, 51, a violent sexual predator, which did not affect his sentence but would keep Mr. Martin on parole if his conviction is ever overturned.

Mr. Martin had no reaction.

Mr. Martin was found guilty in May of sexually assaulting and killing Gabrielle Miranda Bechen, who was known as Gabby, in June 2006 after she rode her ATV to the farm where he was working. He then buried her body and the vehicle.

A jury then took only an hour to decide he should die for the crimes.

Before today’s sentencing, Judge Grimes heard testimony about Mr. Martin’s criminal history dating to the mid-1970s, a record that included such incidents as sexually harassing phone calls and sexually assaulting children.

Also testifying today was a 25-year-old woman who said Mr. Martin sexually assaulted her when she was 6. That case was never prosecuted because the girl’s testimony was not considered strong. But today she reiterated her charge during the hearing on whether Mr. Martin was a predator.

Anand Jon Alexander – Fashion Designer Sexual Predator on Trial

Alexander also is under indictment in New York
on similar charges involving nine women and
is under investigation by authorities in
Texas and Massachusetts.


Fashion designer Anand Jon Alexander ditched his profession and turned into a serial predator, hunting for girls and young women to have humiliating and painful sex with him, a prosecutor said Friday during opening statements of his trial.

Prosecutor Frances Young told the jury that Alexander was excited by luring aspiring fashion models to his Beverly Hills apartment and then forcing them to perform oral sex, inappropriately touching them or raping them.

Young said the 34-year-old designer kept a “conquest list” in which he noted some of his encounters with the girls and women, abbreviating the explicit sexual acts.

“He talks about violently having sex with underage girls,” Young said.

“These things are windows into his soul and what excites him,” the prosecutor said.

Alexander is accused of meeting women on the Internet and assaulting them when they visited California seeking modeling opportunities between 2001 and 2007.

Before opening statements, prosecutors dropped four more counts that had been pending against Alexander. He now faces 25 counts including forcible rape and committing lewd acts on a child. The nine alleged victims were 14 to 21 years old. Last month, prosecutors dropped more than half the original charges.

He has pleaded not guilty. He could face life in prison if convicted.

Defense attorney Leonard Levine countered in his opening statement that the only humiliation in the case was that the women never became models and were angry at Alexander because he made them do various chores while they visited him.

“They weren’t lured to be here, they wanted to be here,” Levine said. “They were too angry that they had been used.

“We build our celebrities up, but in many cases we can’t wait to tear them down.”

Levine added that if there was any sex involving Alexander, it was consensual, noting that some of the underage girls claimed they were 18 years old. Levine also questioned why many of the victims didn’t go straight to police, but instead only came forward after Alexander was arrested.

“Were they not reported because nothing happened?” asked Levine.

The investigation began last year when a woman claimed she had been sexually assaulted at Alexander’s apartment. He was jailed in June 2007 and has remained behind bars.

Prosecutors played two videos allegedly taken by Alexander in which he directs two girls to show their bodies to him. In one, a 17-year-old girl disrobed. Young said the fashion designer then began touching the girl.

“She will tell you this was the worst experience of her life,” Young said.

Alexander, wearing a dark suit and his jet black hair in a ponytail, smiled in the direction of his sister as he entered the courtroom.

Alexander also is under indictment in New York on similar charges involving nine women and is under investigation by authorities in Texas and Massachusetts.

Born in India, Alexander graduated from the Parsons School of Design in New York and launched a fashion line in 1999. He was considered an up-and-coming designer and was named a person to watch by Newsweek.

Aaron Joel Lee – Repeat Sex Offender – Nabbed by 12 year old

A 12-year-old girl helped nab a registered sex offender in Littleton on Monday.

The 12-year-old was walking in Sterne Park when a man in a green Subaru drove up and tried to lure her into his car, Lt. Charles Broadhead said. “He made sexually suggestive gestures to her,” Broadhead said.

The girl ran off, but not before she memorized the man’s license plate.

Before she could get home and call police, a woman who was in Gallup Park told a police officer who was passing by that she had seen a man making similarly suggestive gestures to her — and he was driving a green Subaru.

The officer flagged down the man and talked to him, but the woman left the area before she could give a good description of the man.

Luckily, by then, the 12-year-old had called police and given a good description of the man.

He is Aaron Joel Lee, 36, a registered sex offender in Centennial.

He pled guilty to sexual exploitation of a child in September of 2006.

That conviction is a misdemeanor, so Lee doesn’t appear on Arapahoe County’s Web page listing sex offenders, Broadhead said.

Lee was booked into the Arapahoe County Jail for enticement of a child, a class 4 felony.

Littleton police said they are “incredibly proud” of the girl for having the wits to get the license plate number while fleeing from a dangerous situation.

There was never any physical contact between Lee and the 12-year-old.
