Miguel Navarro – Repeat Sex Offender – Habitual Child Predator

A convicted child molester who was sentenced on Thursday to 35 years in prison is now accused in another crime.

Two new indictments have been handed up against Miguel Navarro.

He’s accused of seeking out and kidnapping a 15-year-old girl while she was outside Woonsocket High School last March.

The alleged victim did manage to escape.

One month later, police say Navarro used a knife to abduct an 11-year-old girl and assaulted her in an abandoned apartment.

Both alleged crimes happened while Navarro was out on bail for the first attack, which he was sentenced for on Thursday.

Police say Navarro’s imprisonment means peace on the streets.

There’s no word on when Navarro will appear in court on the new charges.

At Thursday’s sentencing, Navarro was ordered to register as a sex offender and to stay away from females under the age of 16 once he is released from the A-C-I

Marcus Blanchard – Repeat Sex Offender – Babysitter Molester

A convicted murderer and child molester is being held without bond on charges he sexually molested five young girls.

Deputies say 54-year old Marcus Blanchard’s longtime girlfriend babysat the children in her home. Blanchard was arrested and convicted of molesting his own daughters in 1980.

Then in 1988, Blanchard was convicted of killing another man in a fight over drug money in the mid-eighties. Blanchard remains at the Palm Beach County Jail.

Chester Arthur Stiles – Baby Raper Trial to begin

He refers to himself as “a monster” with “no defense” facing “forever” in prison “for a crime that happened once.”

“No weapon was used; no drugs, no violence, no blood, no tears, no threats,” he said in one of his letters, with an apparent reference to the younger girl having “no memory of it.”

“Coercion used for some touching, and they have turned it into the crime of the century,” he wrote.

The same graphic video that helped end a frantic manhunt for a man accused of taping himself while he molested a 2-year-old girl will be the key piece of evidence in his trial.

Chester Arthur Stiles, who also is accused of molesting a 6-year-old, faces 22 felony charges, including 21 that carry a life sentence.

The haunting video hasn’t been shown publicly, but authorities took photo images of the girl and a man’s face from it and distributed them to the media to help find the child and her attacker during a two-week nationwide search.

“You like that? Feel good?” Stiles asks the toddler in the video, according to a Las Vegas police report filed after Stiles was arrested on Oct. 15, 2007, in Henderson. Police said Stiles can be seen adjusting the camera as he sexually assaults the child.

Stiles, 38, is on trial in Las Vegas on charges he sexually assaulted the two girls in 2003. Jury selection began Tuesday and is expected to take several days.

Stiles has pleaded not guilty to 11 counts of sexual assault with a minor under 14 years of age, 10 counts of lewdness with a child under 14, and one charge of attempted sexual assault with a minor under 14.

“I’m done,” Stiles wrote in letters to his girlfriend from the Clark County jail, where he has been held for the past 16 months. He refers to himself as “a monster” with “no defense” facing “forever” in prison “for a crime that happened once.”

“No weapon was used; no drugs, no violence, no blood, no tears, no threats,” he said in one of his letters, with an apparent reference to the younger girl having “no memory of it.”

“Coercion used for some touching, and they have turned it into the crime of the century,” he wrote.

Stiles waived a preliminary hearing, which spared the young girls from having to testify. But after he pleaded not guilty, his defense lawyers fought to edit the letters before they are shown to the jury.

His lawyers also plan to challenge the authenticity of the videotape and raise questions about the way it came into the hands of sheriff’s deputies in the nearby desert town of Pahrump.

“This is by no means an open-and-shut case,” insisted Stacey Roundtree, a deputy public defender who represents Stiles. “The jury will find that they really cannot trust what they see.”

No decision has been made about whether Stiles will testify, Roundtree said.

His lawyers also plan to challenge the memory of the older girl, who now lives with her mother in Washington state and is due to take the witness stand. There is no video of her alleged attack.

The case burst onto the public scene in late summer 2007 when sheriff’s deputies say 26-year-old Darren Tuck gave them a videotape that he said he found about five months earlier, wrapped in a plastic bag beneath a piece of wood in a desert lot about 60 miles west of Las Vegas. Tuck later pleaded guilty to conspiracy to obstruct a public officer.

Sheriff’s investigators say they were initially unable to identify the man or the child pictured in the video.

“We were getting kind of desperate. We didn’t know where she was, or whether she was alive,” Nye County Sheriff Tony DeMeo said, recalling why he made the unusual decision to distribute images of a sexual assault victim.

“We felt she was still in danger,” DeMeo said.

It didn’t take long before a Las Vegas woman saw the image of the child on television and called the girl’s mother. The child was found safe in Las Vegas, and police say the mother identified the bedroom where the video was filmed. She told police that she and her daughter had moved from the apartment in late 2003.

Authorities don’t plan to call the little girl to testify. Prosecutors say the images will speak for themselves.

A lawyer for the girl’s mother says the child, now 8, doesn’t remember the alleged assault.

“She’s just a normal, happy kid — a rambunctious kid at that,” lawyer Jerry Donahue said. “She can’t testify. She’s got nothing really to say.”

The mother has not spoken publicly about the case. Donahue said she was “trying to remain as anonymous as she can for as long as she can” and was trying to protect her daughter’s identity.

“She knows she’s going to have to testify,” Donahue said of the single mother. “She’s not looking forward to it. They’ve told her to expect a pretty thorough and difficult cross examination.”

After Stiles was identified as the man in the video, authorities said he also was sought on a warrant issued in April 2006 on a charge of lewdness with a child under age 14.

That case stemmed from a 6-year-old girl’s report in December 2003 that Stiles kissed and fondled her while he was staying the night at her home. The girl referred to Stiles as her boyfriend, police said.

Stiles was in the home visiting his girlfriend, who had been given shelter by the 6-year-old’s parents after losing a job, police said.

Scumbag Judges allow Pedophiles to create more victims

A SUPREME Court judge has allowed a prominent Territory sportsman who groped his eight-year-old stepdaughter in front of his own sons to go free.

Friends of the girl’s father now want the Director of Public Prosecutions to appeal.

One of the friends said: “This is outrageous. This bloke should have gone to prison.”

He said the victim – who was forced to give evidence because the man pleaded not guilty – was confused that her attacker had escaped with a two-year suspended jail sentence. The maximum penalty was 14 years.

The friend said the father – who separated from the girl’s mother several years ago and has had children with his second wife – was shocked when his daughter told him about the abuse and had wanted to rush to the man’s house and kill him.

“I talked him out of it – I told him he had to stay out of prison himself for the sake of his kids.

“So he went to the police instead.”

The man’s wife was in court when Justice Angel sentenced him eight days ago and said she would stand by him despite him having twice indecently dealt with her daughter. The couple have two children together.

Both offences took place at the family home in July last year while the mother was at work, the Supreme Court trial heard.

The unemployed man took the girl’s hand and placed it on his bare penis “asking her to play with it”, Justice Angel said in his sentencing remarks.

A day or two later, the man gave the girl a French kiss and put his hand up her dress and rubbed her near her vagina.

The man’s children were in the room on both occasions.

The man, who cannot be named to protect the identity of his victim, told the girl not to tell her mother because it would make her jealous.

He also told her the abuse was a “secret” between the two of them.

Justice Angel said the assaults were a “gross breach of trust” – but were “uncharacteristic” and did not think there was a risk the man would commit a similar offence again.

The judge urged the man to find a job – “rather than stay home all the time with your children”.

Justice Angel did not order that the man not see the girl again. But the Northern Territory News understands she has gone to live with her father.
