Joseph Belanger – Sex Offender Therapist GUILTY possession of Child Porn

A former psychologist for a state mental hospital who said he became interested in child pornography after treating sex offenders pleaded guilty Friday in federal court.

Joseph Belanger, 61, of Jamestown, was charged with receiving and possessing materials involving the sexual exploitation of minors.

Prosecutors said Belanger told them he got interested in child porn while treating sex offenders at a state hospital where he worked for more than 20 years. He often was asked to testify on whether convicted sex offenders were dangerous and should be confined indefinitely for psychiatric treatment.

Belanger’s attorney, Steven Light, did not return messages seeking comment. Earlier, Light said the allegations show that “this type of illness can strike anyone.”

Belanger, who said he is taking medication for depression, looked down as prosecutor Jennifer Klemetsrud Puhl outlined details of the case. U.S. District Judge Ralph Erickson had to ask Belanger twice whether Puhl’s allegations were true before Belanger replied, “Yes, your honor.”

Puhl said Belanger downloaded thousands of sexually explicit images of children. She said he preferred to use paid Web sites because they showed “the entire series of photographs.” Images were found on both his home and work computers.

Sentencing was set for December. He faces at least 10 years in prison.

A letter Belanger sent to state officials last year about his compulsion for child pornography led to reviews of cases in Iowa where he appeared as a witness. Officials have said North Dakota cases are unlikely to be affected because of a state law that requires two expert witnesses.

William Watkins – Dressed in costumes – molests children


A plea hearing is scheduled on Monday for a man accused of abusing children. William Watkins, 53, was known for dressing up as the Grinch and Beetlejuice at a local haunted house. It’s unclear where the alleged abuse took place.

Police found the costumed photographs at Watkins home and hoped releasing them would help bring more victims forward.

William Watkins, first popped up on police radar a couple years ago when a then 11-year-old girl accused him of sexual abuse. Then in December 2007, another girl came forward. Watkins was originally charged with first degree child molestation, possession of child pornography, and five counts of first degree statutory sodomy.

Since then, five new young victims have came forward. Watkins was charged with an additional eight new counts including three counts of first degree statutory sodomy, and five counts of first degree child molestation involving the girls under the age of 12.

Police said he dressed as Beetlejuice at a Metro haunted house, had several addresses in Independence and about four years ago moved his salon into his home.

Police said they pulled evidence including a computer containing child porn from the house, but they won’t say what it is that makes them think Watkins has been hurting kids since 1982.

Watkins is scheduled to be in court Monday afternoon for a plea hearing.
