Jason Garant Perkins Child Porn Addict Teacher – wife gives up children for him

“How do you choose?” his wife whined
as she gave up her children to stay with a pedophile


A 39-year-old former middle school teacher will spend 20 days in jail and five years on probation after pleading guilty today to 10 counts of second-degree exploitation of a minor.

Jason Garant Perkins gave an emotional confession of his sexual addiction after a prosecutor described nearly 200 images of child erotica and pornography found on his computer. The images included video of minors engaged in sex.

“I soothed myself it was only a fantasy world,” Perkins said, adding that he has since joined Sex Addicts Anonymous and a 12-step program called Celebrate Recovery. His computer is filtered for sexual content, and he spends only about 15 minutes a day out of the company of his wife, employer or customers at the store where he now works.

Perkins, of Morrisville, taught social studies at Woods Charter School in Chapel Hill until abruptly resigning just before charges were filed in April.

His wife, Kelly, spoke tearfully of losing friends, selling nearly all their possessions to pay bills and, worst, having to send her 13-year-old son to live with his biological father out of state while the case progressed.

“How do you choose?” she asked. “How do you break your own heart in half?”

Perkins received a 16- to 20-month suspended prison term and imposed 60 months of supervised probation so that he can complete lengthy recovery programs. Perkins must also serve 20 days of active time on weekends.

Further, Perkins must register as a sex offender, submit to random computer searches and complete the state’s sex offender control program. He will be allowed to be with his own two children and stepson.

Jeremy Houston – former teacher and filthy whining pedophile

Former teacher Jeremy Houston will appeal his conviction on two child pornography charges at a hearing in Regina on Monday.

The 53-year-old is expected to present arguments to the Court of Appeal on his own behalf, rather than through a lawyer.

According to a notice of appeal he filed with the province’s highest court less than a week after his conviction in April, Houston contends that the images found in his possession in 2005 “were stamped with URLs of legitimate adult websites, each having disclaimers that the models depicted are over 18 years of age.”

In addition, “one image of the seventeen year old girl show(s) the upper cleavage of her breast only, with no nipple exposed,” the appeal notice states.

Saskatoon Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Grant Currie ruled during Houston’s trial that breasts are sexual organs.

“All dictionary definitions however state that the breast is not a sexual organ, any more than a buttock is,” Houston wrote in the appeal document.

Houston was also convicted of accessing child pornography on the Internet, in connection with a fictional story written by his older brother, Simon Houston, which had been posted to a website for a group called the North American Man Girl Love Association (NAMGLA).

The two brothers were active members of the NAMGLA website’s bulletin board. Simon Houston, 55, is currently serving a 15-month jail sentence, after pleading guilty in January to a charge of distributing child pornography.

Jeremy Houston came under police scrutiny in 2005 while officers were investigating his brother. Records on his computer showed he had visited the NAMGLA website about 200 times, while Simon logged on more than 1,000 times, posting stories about sex with infants and pre-teens.

The website, based in the United States, was shut down by the FBI in conjunction with several arrests — including multiple counts of child molestation against a California man — in 2006.

Simon Houston testified against his brother at his trial, telling court they shared a sexual interest in children and that Jeremy had printed pictures of naked pre-teen girls from the Internet and given them to him in a brown envelope, encouraging him to keep writing stories about the subject.

During his testimony, Simon Houston said he feels sex between adults and children is acceptable — a view Currie described as “distorted and repugnant.”

Jeremy Houston, a married father of three, taught at a school in Nipawin until shortly after his arrest in 2005.

Regarding the charge of accessing the pornographic story written by his brother, Houston’s notice of appeal cites his Charter right to freedom of expression.

“The accused did not read the entire story,” it adds. “Only the first half was read. He avoided all other stories written by Simon Houston, as proven by the fact no comments were posted.”

At a hearing in April, Jeremy Houston received an 18-month conditional sentence followed by three years of probation.

During both terms, he is confined to his home except for medical emergencies, religious purposes, or with the consent of a supervisor, and he is also banned from using a computer or the Internet.

Douglas F. Dingeman – Repeat Sex Offender Can’t keep it in his pants


A repeat sex offender from Hartford has again been charged with indecent exposure after allegedly showing his genitals to an area teenager last month.

Douglas F. Dingeman, 47, remains in the Warren County Jail on a $1,000 cash-only bond. He was also charged with trespassing and harassment, both simple misdemeanors, for the Sept. 25 incident. His indecent exposure charge is a serious misdemeanor and is subject to a sentencing enhancement due to his prior convictions.

Court records show that Dingeman allegedly exposed his genitals to an 18-year-old female clerk at the Git-N-Go in Hartford. The victim said Dingeman masturbated himself while knocking on the glass door to gain her attention. She told authorities she was fearful Dingeman would come into the store and assault her.

A judge issued an order of protection Oct. 2 for the clerk and the store from Dingeman. Dingeman pleaded not guilty and waived his right to a speedy trial. A pre-trial hearing has been set for 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 4.

In May 2005, a group of 11-year-old female students at Hartford Elementary School reported to their counselor that Dingeman exposed himself to them. Dingeman admitted to authorities that he had watched pornography in his garage without pants or underwear, but that he didn’t remember exposing himself to the children because of an “alcohol problem.”

As part of a plea agreement, Dingeman pleaded guilty and was put on the Iowa Sex Offender Registry. He was given a 30-day suspended jail sentence, a $250 fine and one year of probation. Dingeman also has an indecent exposure from January 1987 in Polk County.

John D. Stufflebeam – Pedophile GUILTY – as children cry for justice

Nolan said the little boys in the pictures observed by the jury from the computer are from other places, but, “Here in Tazewell County, one boy stands up and cries no more.

“His second cry is to you asking for justice,” Nolan told the jury.

When all was said and done in the three-day trial of sexual predator John D. Stufflebeam, the jury looked to the little boy who was brave enough to say the man he fondly called John-John or Dad was the man who had violated him.

“It came down to do we believe this 6-year old boy or not believe him?” said juror Jerry Fisher of East Peoria after the trial ended.

“We unanimously thought he was truthful and honest even though he was only 6 years old. We looked at the evidence again (during deliberations) and looked at the video (of the boy’s Tazewell County Children’s Advocacy interview) two or three times, but we still only needed one vote.”

John D. Stufflebeam, 28, of 803 S. Fourth St., Greenville, was convicted Thursday in 10th Judicial Circuit Court of two counts of predatory criminal sexual assault, both Class X felonies. He will be sentenced at 9 a.m. on Dec. 19. Stufflebeam is also under investigation by the FBI and the U.S. State’s Attorney’s Office in regard to child pornography found on his computer and his use of chat rooms to communicate with other pedophiles.

As the jury filed in to render its verdict, Stufflebeam remained motionless and stared at the jury members, though they did not return his gaze. Stufflebeam showed no emotion as he heard the verdict. He faces six to 30 years in prison on each count.

In final arguments Thursday, Tazewell County Assistant State’s Attorney Kathleen Nolan told jurors that Stufflebeam’s victim, who was 4 at the time of the abuse, was consistent in his statements to law enforcement officials and in his testimony before the jury in reference to how Stufflebeam assaulted him.

Defense attorney Kirk Bode said he will file an appeal within the 30-day time frame based on denial of motions he presented prior to trial to keep evidence of prior allegations of sexual abuse and various images gathered from Stufflebeam’s computer from being presented to the jury.

Final arguments

Nolan went through the testimony of the little boy, reminding the jury of the interview the boy had with Tazewell County Children’s Advocacy Center Executive Director and forensic interviewer Barb Strand, in which the boy identified John-John as his abuser and motioned to indicate what Stufflebeam had done to him.

Nolan said the boy told Strand what he did and now the boy has told “you.”

“(The boy) has no reason to lie about this,” said Nolan. “He had no reason to lie to (his mother and sister), he had no reason to lie to Barb Strand and he had no reason to lie to you.”

Nolan also referred to chats that Stufflebeam had with a man, known as Redfox, in a known pedophile chat room. Stufflebeam told the man that he had a 4-year-old boy living with him and that they had been touching each other. Redfox relied, “Does your wife know?”

“No, not a clue,” said Stufflebeam. “She would kill me if she knew.”

The Internet child pornography images were downloaded to Stufflebeam’s computer between the dates of June 11 and June 18, 2007. On June 20, said Nolan, the little boy was molested in the same manner as was depicted in the pornographic images. Nolan said Stufflebeam acted out the behaviors he viewed in the pictures.

In the Internet chats, Stufflebeam and Redfox made reference to images in child porn being hot, being awesome.

“It’s not hot, it’s not awesome,” Nolan said. Nolan said in Illinois the term for “it” is predatory criminal sexual assault.

Another alleged victim of Stufflebeam’s sexual assaults, referred to as “Lisa” in previous Daily Times’ stories, told the jury Wednesday that Stufflebeam had molested her from age 6 to 12. When the family moved to Belleville, his molestation of Lisa ceased. Stufflebeam’s wife (the mother of “Lisa”), had met a new friend, the mother of the young boy he would later molest, said Nolan.

Defense argument

Bode, in final arguments, commented on the evidence that he said should not have been allowed in the trail.

“It’s really not fair,” said Bode. “I know the judge let all of this evidence in, but it really isn’t fair in giving the defendant a fair trial.

“You’ve seen stuff you probably wish you had never seen or want to ever see again.”

Bode told the jury that Stufflebeam was not on trial for sexually molesting two young girls or for possession of child pornography, saying that is for another time, another court, another date.

Bode told the jury there was reasonable doubt in the case, saying that the boy’s statements were full of inconsistencies related to the date and who was in the room when the assault happened.

Bode told the jury not to be distracted by the images they saw in the child pornography pictures, possibly allowing themselves to think Stufflebeam is a twisted and disgusting individual, so he must be guilty.

“I’m not picking on a 6-year-old boy,” said Bode. He said his concern was the limitations of a 6-year-old in communicating details.

The fact that family members did not call the police until hours after they found out about the abuse also made the case suspect, as did the several months between the allegations and an arrest, said Bode. He said when police arrived at the home, the boy was not exhibiting any signs of being traumatized and he wasn’t crying.

“He was more interested in getting back to his cartoons,” said Bode.

Bode also questioned why the East Peoria police did not tape record an interview with Stufflebeam and why they went to Graham Hospital in Canton after Stufflebeam tried to commit suicide because of the stress he was under.

Bode said police were told he had nothing more to say.

Bode said the police knew they did not have enough evidence for an arrest and were hoping for a confession to clinch the case.

“I think the delay in the charging of the case says it all,” said Bode.

Bode also questioned Strand’s interview strategy with the boy as she mentioned “nasty games” and who was in the room when the assault happened.

“(Strand) had read the reports, she knew where she needed to go and she’s an agent of the prosecution,” said Bode.

In her final statement to the jury, Nolan said the testimony of the two alleged prior victims was relevant to the case because it established a pattern, saying “past conduct is a gateway into the future.”

Nolan said the delay in charges was related to gathering information and examining the computer that Stufflebeam used to download child pornography. She said the prosecution did not want to leave the child on his own – they needed supporting evidence. She said the evidence gathered was not a fabrication.

“This is not CSI – we can’t create evidence,” said Nolan. “Before we put a child on the witness stand there has to be other evidence so he is not standing alone.”

Nolan said the little boys in the pictures observed by the jury from the computer are from other places, but, “Here in Tazewell County, one boy stands up and cries no more.

“His second cry is to you asking for justice,” Nolan told the jury.

Stanley Swartz Appel – Pervs on sexually assaulted children while wife whines about the disruption to their lives

“I think this is horrible,” she said of her husband being accused.
“This is going to destroy so many lives.”

A Maggie Valley man accused of possessing and trading images of child pornography remains in jail under $ 250,000 bond and faces nearly two dozen charges resulting from a wide-spanning investigation that has netted 16 arrests throughout the United States and one in Italy.

var ran_number=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);advert = ‘advert’ + ran_number;show(advert);
Detectives executed a search warrant at the home of 69-year-old Stanley Swartz Appel, late Wednesday afternoon and seized one laptop, three desktop computers and 34 floppy discs. The discs contained numerous images of children aged 5- to 15 years engaging in sexual activity, Det. Archie Shuler, Maggie Valley Police Department said. None of the victims appear to be local children.

Appel, also known as Appelbaum, was charged that evening with 15 counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor based on allegations he traded the pornographic images using an online peer-to-peer file sharing site, hello.com. That site has since been shut down.

switch (VarBucketNo){ case 1: show(‘voip-text’); break; case 4: case 5: //call center show(‘crm-text’); break; default: num = ‘num’ + ran_number; show(num);}
For being found in possession of the images, Appel also faces eight counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

There is no evidence to suggest that Appel was producing the photos, only possessing and trading them, Shuler said.

“I personally feel he just got caught up in the Internet and it led to bad things for him,” said Shuler.

Appel’s wife, Shirley, said she knew nothing about her husband’s alleged involvement with child pornography and maintains he is innocent.

“Of course, he is innocent,” she said, later adding “I am in the dark myself. I knew nothing except this is a man who has never committed a crime in his life. I can’t fathom him doing anything like this.”

Shuler’s investigation into Appel’s involvement stems from a case that originated in Montgomery County, Penn. To date, 16 individuals have been arrested throughout the United States and one in Italy on similar charges resulting from the investigation.

While investigating the Internet activity of a Montgomery County man, Brian Keith Benner, who was later convicted of crimes related to child porn, the Internet Crimes Against Children task force learned that some images on Benner’s computer came from an IP address which they traced to Appel’s computer.

Shuler said he was contacted by Det. Mary Anders, with the Montgomery County district attorney’s office, two to three weeks ago alerting him of that discovery.

Benner’s conviction led authorities to other e-mail addresses relating to individuals who were trading child porn with him, Shuler said. They collected a list of all IP addresses and Internet accounts (believed to have been involved) and started approaching law enforcement officers in those jurisdictions.

Based on that information, Shuler obtained a warrant to search Appel’s home, which is within view of the Maggie police department.

Shirley Appel said Thursday she was shocked and stunned to learn of the allegations against her husband, which she believes are unfounded.

” I think this is horrible,” she said of her husband being accused. “This is going to destroy so many lives.”

The charges against Appel, who works for a local electrical supply company, relate to images contained on the floppy discs which Shuler seized from his home.

Three computers were also seized, which have been sent to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for forensic examination. Based on those findings, additional charges may be forthcoming, Shuler said.

Det. Ryan Singleton, Waynesville Police Department, who has worked numerous child porn cases in the past is assisting Shuler with the investigation.

In Shuler’s three years working as a detective for the Maggie department, “this is the first child porn case I’ve worked,” he said. “Hopefully it will send a message out.”

Patrick Romeo – Repeat Sex Offender – Pedophile – Habitual Boy Raper

Patrick Romeo posted bail earlier today on $10,000 and has been released from St. Lawrence County Jail.

He is accused of molesting a 7-year-old boy at Massena Beach and is facing similar charges in Franklin County involving the same 7-year-old boy and two other boys, 10 and 11.

Even though Romeo is a registered sex offender in California, his New York State classification level as a sex offender has not been determined.

Earlier Report:

Investigators say 67-year-old convicted sex offender Patrick Romeo sexually molested a 7-year-old boy at the Massena Town Beach.

Romeo remains jailed in the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility on $10,000 cash bail facing charges of first degree sexual abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.

Authorities wonder whether there may be more victims.

Romeo had been out on bail just 10 days from Franklin County Jail on other charges involving sexual contact with three boys aged 7, 10 and 11 when he was arrested on the latest charges in this county.
Patrick Romeo has a history of sex charges dating back to 1990 in the state of California where he was convicted of lewd acts with an underage teenager.

Investigators say the Fort Covington man is also alleged to have had inappropriate sexual contact with the child at the town beach over the summer.

The alleged incident occurred in mid August when Romeo took the boy on an outing to the Massena beach. The child involved is not related to Romeo but is known to him outside the family.

Investigators say the victim is the same child Romeo allegedly molested in Franklin County. Romeo’s neighbors say they were shocked to learn of the charges.

Even though Romeo is a registered sex offender in California, his New York State classification level as a sex offender has not been determined.

Leslie West – Repeat Sex Offender – Disgusting, Perverted, dirty old man

“You are a danger to young girls because you won’t control yourself.”

you denied being a dirty old man but that’s exactly what you are – a disgusting, perverted, dirty old man.

A SERIAL sex offender who preyed on young girls has been jailed for 20 years.

Leslie West, 64, was locked up after being convicted of 15 sexual offences against children, including two counts of rape.

He was led from the dock at Southampton Crown Court with the words of Judge John Boggis QC ringing in his ears.

The judge told him: “At your trial you denied being a dirty old man but that’s exactly what you are – a disgusting, perverted, dirty old man.

“You are a danger to young girls because you won’t control yourself.”

The court heard that West, of Bracklesham Way, Sholing, Southampton, committed two sets of offences that were separated by a gap of 30 years.

Megan Topliss, for West, said the defendant was suffering from a raft of serious health problems, including angina and emphysema, but knew a prison sentence was inevitable.

She added: “My client recognises that a term of imprisonment is the only possible sentence and that it will be a long one.

“He was a man of previous good character.

Beyond that there is little I can say in the light of the jury’s verdicts.”

Miss Topliss said West was remanded in custody following his conviction last month and had begun to experience panic attacks.

She added: “He has become very depressed and is receiving medication.”

Sentencing West, Judge Boggis told him: “I’ve taken into account your age, the fact that you’re not a well man and the effect of a prison sentence on a person of your age.”

The defendant was jailed for ten years for each of the rapes. The two terms will run concurrently.

He was also handed prison sentences for the other 13 offences, which included indecency, sexual assault and causing a child to engage in sexual activity, and was jailed for a total of 20 years.
