Sean Humby – 9 years for molesting boys in Day Care

Before 20-year-old Sean M. Humby was ordered to prison for nine years, the boy’s father said Humby’s actions transformed an innocent child into one “who now views the world through cynical eyes.”

“I will never forgive you for what you did,” the father told Humby, “not only to my son, but to all the other boys you victimized.”

Man guilty of abusing three boys sentenced to nine years

Sean HumbyIt was an emotional day for the parents of children who were sexually abused at a daycare center. Sean Humby, 20, pleaded guilty and admitted to sexually abusing three boys at Love and Laughter Daycare in Riga.

In court today, Assistant District Attorney Matt Rich asked for the maximum sentence of nine years for Humby and that is the sentence he received. Humby will also have to register as a sex offender when he’s released.

One of the victim’s parents spoke directly to Humby in court saying, “No words can describe the amount of hatred I feel towards you, I will never forgive you for what you have done”.

The assistant district attorney says this has been a very painful process for the victims. Rich said, “They’re all very very hurt about what happened, but considering the circumstances and considering that the boys did not have to come in and testify, this was the best outcome that we could provide to the families. I believe they’re satisfied with what we were able to do.”

Rich says the three boys are all under twelve years old and they are going through counseling.

The defense attorney says Humby was also sexually abused as a young boy and they hope his guilty plea will help stop the cycle of abuse.

Eric Darrell Schwenk – Repeat Sex Offender –

The alleged victim in the case — who is now 16 — worked with investigators. During a phone conversation, Schwenk was recorded reportedly admitting to the molestation.


A 43-year-old registered sex offender who has been charged with allegedly molesting his former girlfriend’s 10-year-old son in 2002 pleaded not guilty at his Tuesday arraignment.

Eric Darrell Schwenk waived his right to a speedy trial in order to have his pretrial date set in early December. Attorney Marek Reavis was appointed as Schwenk’s attorney.

”There’s some investigation we have yet to do,” Reavis told Judge Dale Reinholtsen in his request for an additional four weeks.

Schwenk has been charged by the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office with two counts of lewd and lascivious acts against a minor.

During a pretrial hearing, the prosecution alleged that on two occasions, Schwenk watched pornographic videos with the boy, and instructed him to rub lotion on his chest. Schwenk also allegedly touched the boy on at least one occasion.

Cheryl Franco, an investigator with the District Attorney’s Office, testified the boy’s mother reported the event after she was told by her son. Franco testified that the woman confronted Schwenk about the accusations, and that he confessed to them.

The alleged victim in the case — who is now 16 — worked with investigators. During a phone conversation, Schwenk was recorded reportedly admitting to the molestation.

Court records show Schwenk registered as a sex offender in Humboldt County when he moved to the area. He was convicted of a similar crime in 1995 in Stanislaus County.

Schwenk remains incarcerated in the Humboldt County jail. His bail has been set at $200,000.

Craig Steven Bowen – Teacher Molester – Pleads for Mercy


Craig Steven Bowen was found guilty of four counts of child molestation in Coweta Superior Court on Tuesday.

After listening to Bowen’s pleas for leniency, Judge Jack Kirby sentenced him to 20 years with 15 to serve in prison — the balance of which he’s to serve on probation — for admittedly having an ongoing sexual relationship with a female relative who was under 16.

Bowen was sentenced to 20 years with 15 to serve in prison for each count of child molestation — all of which will run concurrently.

“I never intended to do anything wrong,” Bowen said just prior to sentencing. “I take full responsibility for what I did. I’m an adult and she’s a child.”

Bowen said the inappropriate relationship ended in June 2002. He told the judge that he would have accepted the plea offer from the state for 20 years with 12 to serve had he known the specific dates of alleged wrongdoing outlined in the indictment “didn’t mean anything.”

Bowen’s defense attorney Macklyn Smith had based his defense around those dates in an attempt to show there was no opportunity for wrongdoing on those dates.

Bowen pleaded for mercy from the court saying he was no threat to society.

Kirby said the plea was offered and that Bowen would get a harsher penalty because he put the victim through a trial.

According to Senior Assistant District Attorney Ray Mayer, Bowen sexually fondled the juvenile relative in Coweta County on several occasions beginning when the victim was around 5 or 6 years old and ending when she was 9 or 10.

The crux of the prosecution was Bowen’s taped interview with the Coweta County Sheriff’s Office on April 12. In the video, Bowen made admissions about inappropriately touching the victim, according to Mayer.

The jury deliberated the case from approximately 2:50 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. before finding Bowen guilty on all counts.

Bowen, of Senoia, is a former Fayette County teacher. He resigned as a teacher at Rising Starr Middle School in Fayetteville following his arrest in April. In 2003, he ran for a Georgia House District post in the Republican Primary. He was a foster parent until his arrest.

Dr Gregory Colin Wilson – Court orders Pedophile’s name to be released

THE identity of a prominent GP who sexually assaulted two of his teenage female patients can finally be revealed.

The victims of Doctor Gregory Colin Wilson today celebrated the convicted pedophile being “named and shamed” after AdelaideNow successfully overturned a publication ban on his identity.

One woman, who cannot be named, claimed it as “a victory” after almost two decades of suffering and six years of court proceedings.

“I feel like this is a real win, because there were times where I started to question myself and ask why I was doing this,” she said.

“But both of us (victims) were doing it for the children we once were, who couldn’t stand up for themselves.

“We’ve come a long way.”

Wilson’s other victim, Tori Barnes, said she was thrilled to hear the news.

“For six years, Wilson has fought to keep his name under wraps and he’s had the money to do it,” she said.

“I’m just happy he’s going to be out there in the media, and I just can’t wait for sentencing.”

Wilson, 59, of North Haven, was found guilty by a jury of two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse.

He sexually assaulted the woman, who cannot be named, on two occasions when she was a teenager.

He was, at the time, both her GP and a friend of her family.

Earlier this year, Wilson was found guilty of sexually assaulting Ms Barnes during a family holiday in 1989.

He received a suspended sentence for that offence.

Today, both Ms Barnes and the other woman said they hoped the District Court would jail Wilson this time.

“I want to see him named and shamed, I want to see him jailed, I want his medical licence revoked indefinitely,” the woman said.

“Most importantly, I don’t want him to be able to ever hurt anyone, the way he hurt us, ever again.”

Ms Barnes agreed.

“I was very disappointed he didn’t go to jail for (assaulting) me, I hope that this time he actually does,” she said.

“He deserves no less a penalty for what he has done to our lives.”

"Recovery is difficult but the alternative is keeping your secret and thats much worse"

13 years ago, Dan Leonard revealed his secret for the first time, a secret that for many years ruined his life. He was abused by a serial pedophile, his football coach, from the age of 11 to 13. Leonard told his story at the Domestic and Sexual Volence Coalition’s 19th Annual Report to the Community. For the first time in 19 years, a line up of all male survivors spoke out. “There were many bystanders to the abuse that happened to me, many of them had suspicions but nobody ever spoke up, nobody ever stepped in to help that little boy,” said Leonard.

Leonard hopes a full recovery will come one day for him…but he still has to work at it. He admits his teen years were dangerous involving alcoholism and other reckless behavior. “Recovery is difficult but the alternative is keeping your secret and thats much worse,” said Leonard.

“Sometimes the numbers flash before your eyes and they don’t really have meaning, when you listen to the stories of inidividuals who have survived trauma and the attack on their spirit and soul that both domestic and sexual violence are, you remember what the numbers really mean,” said Randi Bregman, Executive Director of Vera House. At least one in ten males will become the victim of sexual assault at some point in their lives, and the Vera House offers counseling and support groups for victims of any type of abuse. You can contact them at 315-468-3260, 24 hours a day, seven days a week for support.
