James Edward Whitfield – Repeat Sex Offender – Pedophile

April 13, 2003
public indecency for exposing himself to a minor

Sept. 25, 2003
child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes



A convicted St. Marys child molester has been sentenced to more than 11 years in prison for possession of child pornography.

James Edward Whitfield, 25, was also sentenced Tuesday by U.S. District Judge Judge Anthony Aliamo to a lifetime period of supervised release after he serves his 137-month sentence.

He faced a minimum sentence of 10 years because he was previously convicted of child molestation, according to a release from U.S. Attorney Edmund Booth Jr.

Whitfield had pleaded guilty in April to a single count of possession of child pornography as part of a plea agreement in which the government dismissed charges of receipt of child pornography and transportation of child pornography.

Evidence showed Whitfield possessed numerous pictures and 37 videos depicting child pornography. He told investigators in a sworn affidavit he got the pornography over the Internet while using a peer-to-peer program called Limewire.

He became the subject of an investigation after he took his computer to be repaired and a technician discovered a document file on the machine’s hard drive containing the pornography.

Prior to his conviction, Whitfield told investigators he was convicted of misdemeanor public indecency for exposing himself to a minor on April 13, 2003. He was also charged with child molestation and enticing a child for indecent purposes on Sept. 25, 2003. Both cases occurred in Houston County, according to court documents.

Whitfield had been held without bail because he was found living in the 300 block of West Wilbur Street in Kingsland with his pregnant, 17-year-old girlfriend, which was a violation of his release as a sex offender.

Clifton Bobbitt Somerville Sr – 81 year old Repeat Sex Offender


An 81-year-old Lexington Park area man identified in court records as a convicted sex offender was arrested this week on charging papers alleging he drove a 14-year-old girl to his home and grabbed her thigh.

Clifton Bobbitt Somerville Sr. was charged Tuesday with second-degree assault from the Sept. 11 incident, and with failing to comply with a requirement that he notify the St. Mary’s Sheriff’s Office of a change of his address. A court commissioner released Somerville from custody Tuesday on personal recognizance, on the condition that he have no unsupervised contact with any children.

Somerville had seen the girl several times at a soup kitchen near Point Lookout Road before he offered her a ride last week from there to her home at a nearby trailer park, according to charging papers filed by detective William Raddatz of the St. Mary’s Bureau of Criminal Investigations.

‘‘When the defendant got close to [the trailer park], he turned around and stated he had to bring some items in his van to a friend,” Raddatz wrote in a statement of probable cause. ‘‘The victim became afraid, but stated the defendant drove too fast for her to get out of the vehicle.”

Somerville drove the girl to his current home off Route 5 south of Great Mills, according to court papers.

‘‘She was afraid and did not know what to do, so she complied with his instruction to come inside,” the detective wrote, and Somerville allegedly grabbed her without her consent. ‘‘The defendant told her she did not have to do anything she didn’t want to do,” court papers state, ‘‘and she asked him to take her home. The defendant complied.”

Somerville said Thursday that he will contest the charges in court. ‘‘That’s not true,” he said of the allegations. ‘‘I’ve got a lawyer already.”

John Charles Fox – Repeat Sex Offender Gets 10 years in prison

A military contractor convicted of having child pornography while working in Iraq was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison on Thursday in U.S. District Court in El Paso.

John Charles Fox, 52, an aircraft repairman from El Paso, pleaded guilty June 30 to charges of failing to register as a sex offender and possession of child pornography, officials with the U.S. Attorney’s Office said.

U.S. District Judge David Briones sentenced Fox to 10 years in prison on the child porn charge and more than eight years in prison for failing to register as a sex offender. The sentences will be served concurrently.

Investigators from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement and the U.S. Marshals Service determined that Fox had 22 videos and 14 photos of child porn while working at Balad Air Force Base in Iraq, officials said. Fox took several trips to Iraq.

On May 23, 2007, the pornography was discovered on Fox’s laptop computer when he lost the computer at Heathrow Airport in London. Fox was arrested Jan. 22 in Detroit while on a return flight to El Paso from Iraq.

Fox was convicted in Guam in 2002 for a sexual act with a minor.

But he didn’t register with El Paso police as a sex offender as required nor did he let authorities know of his trips to Iraq, officials said.
