Jon Solnicka – Repeat Sex Offender – Faces 100 years

A Youngtown man previously convicted of raping a 10-year-old girl in Oregon now faces up to 100 years in prison for molesting three Arizona children.

Jon Solnicka, 40, was found guilty earlier this month on three counts of child molestation, said Mike Scerbo, a spokesman for the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office. He will be sentenced on Oct. 31.

In June 2007, police reported that Solnicka molested three children, ages 9, 11 and 12, at his home’s pool, in the 11200 block of West Missouri Avenue. According to the report, some of the children stated that the suspect had had sexual contact with them.

After police spoke to the children’s parents, who reported the incident, police tried to locate Solnicka at his home. When officers were unable to find him, they conducted surveillance on a possible hiding place: his mother’s home in Sun City, the report stated.

Two days later, officers spotted Solnicka at the home and arrested him in the attic.

During interviews, he admitted to police he did swim with the three victims at his pool and that “he may have touched the victims, but it was an accident . . . ” He also told police the children changed their clothes at his shed.

“The pool was like a kid magnet,” said Sgt. Dave Evans, the arresting officer in the case. He said Solnicka’s pool area was full of toys and other items used to lure children.

As investigators dug deeper, they unearthed another fact: He had an outstanding felony warrant out of Douglas County, Oregon, related to a child-rape conviction in 1989.

He had been sentenced to 20 years in jail, but Evans said Solnicka served only five years for the rape of a small girl. Once he was on parole, he fled to Arizona, where he took up residence in Youngtown.

Police said Solnicka was self-employed and lived in Youngtown with his wife and two children. He did not register as a sex offender when he moved to the state.

Richard E. Aikey Jr. – Repeat Sex Offender – Baby Raper

“This is a bad guy, a bad guy”


An Ontario County jury convicted a Hopewell man on all charges Wednesday for repeatedly sexually abusing a young girl.

Following three hours of deliberation, the jury — made up of seven men and five women — found Richard E. Aikey Jr., 33, of 2607 County Road 10, guilty of second-degree course of sexual conduct against a child and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child. The three-day trial was before Judge Frederick Reed; Assistant District Attorney James Ritts was the prosecutor for the county.

Aikey, already a Level 3 sex offender, will be held in the county jail without bail until his sentencing on Oct. 22 at 9:30 a.m. He faces up to 15 years in prison with 20 years of post-release supervision.

“This is a bad guy, a bad guy,” Ritts said.

Aikey was initially charged with first-degree sexual abuse, but after further investigation he was charged with second-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, which meant he was accused of engaging in two or more sexual acts against a child younger than 11 years old over the course of three months.

Aikey was accused of repeatedly sexually abusing a young girl between January 2005 and February 2008. In one instance, the girl’s younger sister allegedly witnessed the abuse.

The allegations were first brought to light by the state police in Dundee and Yates County Child Protective Services, and further investigated by state police in Ontario County, Ritts said.

Aikey was previously arrested in April 1995 on first-degree sexual abuse charges stemming from sexual contact with three boys, ages 7, 10 and 11. According to records from the state sex offender registry, Aikey was the children’s baby sitter.

Aikey, who was convicted on those charges, was released on parole in September 2001. He is listed as a Level 3 sex offender, which means he is at high risk to act again.

On Tuesday, the 12-year-old victim and her 9-year-old sister testified against Aikey. Aikey also took the stand in his own defense Tuesday.

On Wednesday, defense attorney Michael Jones Jr. called Aikey’s former roommate — Keith Shaffer — to the stand to testify that he was with Aikey at the time of one of the incidents, Ritts said.

Ritts said he plans to seek the maximum sentence for Aikey.

“For a guy like this, I think we have to look at the long side to protect other kids,” he said.

Gregory Parsons – Repeat Sex Offender – Baby Raper

A grand jury has indicted a Potosi, Mo. man on 120 criminal charges, most of them sexual in nature. The charges against Gregory Parsons include sexual exploitation of a child, possession of child porn, child molestation, statutory sodomy, rape, incest and kidnapping.

The 120 counts involved in the indictment were associated with eight victims, ranging in age from one to eight-years-old. The crimes allegedly occurred between November 2007 and April 2008.

Parsons, a father, also appears on the sex offender registry for rape and indecent exposure convictions in Oklahoma.

Washington County Prosecutor John Rupp said three recent search warrants were conducted at Parsons’ apartment, where deputies found evidence on computers and evidence that Parsons filmed and took photos of the children in sexual acts. Rupp said some of the video was posted online by Parsons.

“It’s a lot of counts and it’s probably one of the most counts in a single incident that has ever been reported by a Washington County grand jury,” said Rupp.

Rupp said Parsons has a live-in girlfriend and also has family in the area. He would not elaborate on how the suspect came into contact with the victims.

In addition to the 120 count indictment, federal authorities also indicted Parsons on 13 counts of possessing child pornography.

Parsons remains in jail on $3 million cash only bond.
