Michael J. Alderman Sr – Repeat Sex Offender – Babysitter Baby Raper

County prosecutors on Tuesday charged a level 2 sex offender with child molestation, according to documents filed in Kitsap County Superior Court.

Michael J. Alderman Sr., 36, is alleged to have molested a 7-year-old girl while baby-sitting her for approximately the last three months, Bremerton police said in court documents.

The girl’s mother said her daughter had told her she’d been tickled while her mother was away in the evenings at meetings. When the mother asked more questions, the girl said she couldn’t say any more or she would “get into trouble,” police said.

The woman said she knew Alderman because he had done some auto repairs for her in the past.

Police confirmed Tuesday that Alderman was a level 2 sex offender. Sex offenders are rated on a scale of 1 to 3, with 3 being the most likely to reoffend.

All sex offenders are required to register with law enforcement, but the community isn’t notified of the presence of level 2 sex offenders.

Alderman was found guilty of sexual assault of a child in 1999 in Nebraska and that he failed to register as a sex offender in Florida in 2006.

Investigators said the 7-year-old was allegedly choked briefly on occasion and told not to disclose the incidents.

Alderman remains in the Kitsap County jail on $500,000 bail.

Kevin B. Wagner – Repeat Sex Offender – Carried note cards

A convicted sex offender with a history of harassing teen and preteen girls in public has been charged with propositioning two 15-year-old girls as they walked toward downtown Kirkland in January.

Prosecutors say that when they later arrested Kevin B. Wagner, 53, he was carrying pictures of naked girls and a stack of index cards with notes about unnamed girls.

Wagner was charged last week in King County Superior Court with communicating with a minor for immoral purposes, a sex offense. He is being held on $50,000 bail.

Wagner has been convicted of third-degree rape as well as burglary, assault and driving offenses.

On Jan. 7, two 15-year-old Lake Washington High School girls were walking from the bus center in Kirkland toward a fast-food restaurant on Central Way when a an older man with graying hair under a bright orange beanie approached on the sidewalk and asked, “Do you want me to buy your breakfast, honey?”

When the girls declined, the man asked them if they wanted to have sex and made lewd comments about their anatomy. The girls quickly walked away.

Police used the girls’ description of the man to put out a composite sketch and an alert to other police, charging documents said.

Then in February, Wagner was arrested on a Metro bus in Kirkland for showing preteen girls pornographic photos. He ended up getting in a scuffle with a passenger who intervened. He was later convicted of misdemeanor assault and disorderly conduct for that incident.

Police noted that Wagner looked a lot like the person the teenage girls had described in January. The girls picked Wagner out of a photo lineup, prosecutors said.

Wagner was registered as a Level 3 sex offender, which is considered the highest risk for reoffending.

Wynford Murray – Twisted pedophile gets 25 years to life for failure to register

“What he did to those girls. I don’t even have the words for it,” Arnold said. “It reeks of a lack of compassion and a lack of concern for the humanity of the most innocent people we have in society.”

A transient who was suspected of downloading stories about sex with babies at a Redondo Beach library was sentenced today to 25 years to life for failing to register as a sex offender.

Wynford Murray, 35, was convicted April 17 of the one charge following a non-jury trial before Torrance Superior Court Judge Mark Arnold.

In sentencing Murray, who was convicted 12 years ago in New York for sexually molesting two girls, ages 3 and 5, Arnold said he could find no justification for going outside the three-strikes law and giving Murray a lesser sentence.

Arnold said he took into account Murray’s current case, in which he knew he was required to register but lied on the witness stand and said he didn’t, as well as his history.

Murray’s prior convictions were for forcing the girls to orally copulate him. In addition, 25 pages of stories that were found in Murray’s backpack explicitly detailed sex with babies and young girls.

Calling the stories “perverted” is an understatement, Arnold said.

“What he did to those girls. I don’t even have the words for it,” Arnold said. “It reeks of a lack of compassion and a lack of concern for the humanity of the most innocent people we have in society.”

Deputy District Attorney Ann Lee said the evidence showed that Murray knew he had to register, but didn’t.

William Lopez – Repeat Sex Offender – Stalked young girl at JCPenny


A convicted sex offender who was supposed to stay away from children is back behind bars after alert security personnel at JCPenney in the Westfield Trumbull mall spotted him following a small girl Saturday.

William Lopez, 63, of Noble Avenue in Bridgeport, was jailed in lieu of $100,000 bond after his arraignment Monday in Bridgeport Superior Court on charges of second-degree breach of peace degree and obscenity. His case was continued to May 19.

Police Lt. Keith Golding said Monday that Lopez was spotted by the store’s loss-prevention officers as he followed a young girl and her parents Saturday evening. The suspect attracted suspicion because of where his hands were in his pants, Golding said.

Another loss-prevention officer became involved, and the two plainclothes officers followed Lopez out of JCPenney and into another store, where they called cops by cell phone for help.

JCPenney store manager Michele Lozanski said the eagle-eyed employees’ training goes well beyond theft prevention.

“One of our cornerstones is also safety,” she said.

She declined to name her staff members, but said one was a three-year employee and the other has worked at the store for about a year. “The two [loss-prevention officers] are extremely proud,” she said.

Officials said the girl’s family was apparently unaware of what was happening.

In 2005, Lopez was convicted of risk of injury to a minor, according to information posted on the state’s sex offender registry.

Craig Driscoll – Repeat Sex Offender – Got off with probation then carried on as before


A previously convicted sex offender was indicted this week on 18 counts of possessing child pornography.

Craig Driscoll, 28, formerly of Nashua, is currently serving three to six years in state prison on a probation violation stemming from Probation Officer Jason Berry’s discovery of the alleged porn stash last year.

Each of the child porn charges carries a maximum of 3-1/2 to seven years in prison. Driscoll is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges April 30 in Hillsborough County Superior Court.

In October 2006, Driscoll pleaded guilty to aggravated felonious sexual assault for raping a 14-year-old Manchester girl and threatening her with a gun and knife. He was sentenced to a year in jail, probation and required to complete sex offender treatment, prosecutors said.

Berry filed probation violation charges against Driscoll last year, after he was found drinking with two teenage girls in Wilton in July 2008, and again after finding the alleged child pornography in Driscoll’s home Aug. 8. Driscoll was convicted of the probation violations last month.

Ismael Malave – Repeat Sex Offender – Threatening Victim Backfired

A previously convicted sex offender was sentenced to serve another 10 to 20 years in prison Wednesday for molesting a 6-year-old girl in Nashua nearly six years ago.

Although Ismael Malave, 43, contends he is innocent, Hillsborough County Superior Court Judge David Sullivan agreed to let him enter an “Alford” plea on a felony sex assault charge.

Malave’s unwillingness to admit his guilt could cost him an extra 10 years in prison, however. Under current prison policy, at least, Malave won’t be considered eligible for parole until he’s completed the sex offender treatment program, and he won’t be considered eligible for the program until he is willing to admit his guilt.

The girl whom Malave was convicted of molesting attended his sentencing hearing Wednesday along with several family members.

In addition to his conviction for aggravated felonious sexual assault, Malave also pleaded guilty to witness tampering, admitting that he tried to persuade the girl and her mother not to cooperate with prosecutors.

Patricia Benner, the lawyer representing the girl, warned the girl before the hearing that Malave might try to look her way, or even mouth words at her, but assured the girl that bailiffs would keep her safe from him.

Malave’s sentence also prohibits him from initiating any contact with the girl or her family, directly or through any other person.

“He has intimidated this girl and her family to such a degree that he thinks he can manipulate them,” Benner said, adding, “It’s my belief that conduct will continue” if he isn’t strictly forbidden from all contact.

Benner read a statement by the girl’s mother, who once had a relationship with Malave, and Assistant County Attorney Leslie Gill read a statement that the girl wrote.

“You are mean. I don’t like what you did to me. Why did you do it?” Gill read. “I am so mad at you because you hurt me. You hurt my body and you hurt my feelings.”

“I am so scared right now because you did that to me,” she read. “I know you’re not sorry.”

Malave has not apologized, and didn’t do so Wednesday. Instead, he protested that his case took too long to be tried, and claimed that guards at the county jail have abused him.

“My rights were violated basically in this state due to my being a minority,” Malave said, adding later, “It’s a criminal matter, what you all done to me.”

Malave also claimed that his lawyer hadn’t explained to him previously that he wouldn’t be allowed to contact the girl or her family. Booker told Sullivan that in fact, they had discussed it at length before Malave pleaded guilty Monday.Malave had been jailed since his arrest in 2005, held without bail on a single count of aggravated felonious sexual assault while also serving an eight- to 10-year sentence for statutory rape in Plymouth County, Mass.

As part of his plea bargain, Malave agreed that 889 days of the time he’s spent in jail would count toward his 10 to 20 year sentence. Malave also received lesser, concurrent sentences for witness tampering.

Malave has a lengthy prior criminal record in his home state of Massachusetts, starting with a 1987 manslaughter conviction from a hit-and-run collision, for which he was sentenced to nine to 15 years in prison, according to the Massachusetts Criminal History Systems Board.

Malave chalked up burglary, drug, weapons and reckless driving convictions around Massachusetts in the late 1990s and was convicted Aug. 31, 2005, on two counts of statutory rape. He was sentenced to eight to 10 years in state prison.

Kenneth Dale Stark – Repeat Sex Offender – Repeat DUI Offender – Stalking kids at Park


A sex offender with a criminal past that covers four states is back behind bars in Sioux Falls, after police say he was hanging around Sioux Falls parks that were packed with kids.Police say there are a few reasons you might spot someone watching a park full of kids, such as parents checking up on a baby-sitter. If you have a weird feeling about it, police say it’s best to give them a call and have them check it out just in case.

Kenneth Dale Stark, 59, went before a judge Friday. He was arrested Thursday for being a sex offender loitering in a safety zone. Stark is also charged with his 6th DUI and other misdemeanors.

Police say they spotted Stark at Whittier Park, sitting in a white van and watching the kids playing. At the time there were dozens of kids enjoying the park. It was actually parents who spotted the van the day before and tipped off police.

News that Kenneth Stark is accused of watching kids at local parks is disturbing for Linda Monhan a Sioux Falls grandma who’s often out with her granddaughter Macy.

“It kinda frightened me when I heard it was like 2 blocks away from my house,” Monhan said.

When parents noticed a white van sitting outside of a Sioux Falls park, they wrote down the license plate number and gave it to police. When police ran it, they found it belonged to Kenneth Dale Stark. He is a convicted sex offender not only in South Dakota, but also in Nebraska, Minnesota and Iowa.

He has nine prior convictions at least one of those is for sexual assault of a child.

Sioux Falls police in uniforms but in an unmarked cars followed stark to Whittier Park and then to Meldrum Park. When stark spotted the officers in uniform, he took off, but police were able to catch up with him a short time later and arrested him on several charges including being a sex offender loitering in a safety zone. He’s now being held on a 25-thousand dollar cash bond.

For Linda Monhan, the arrest is a relief, but also a reminder of how watchful parents should be of suspicious activity.

“I’m usually out with her all the time and I usually watch out for things and see if there’s anything strange,” Monhan said.

Kermit “Casper” Flanders – Repeat Sex Offender Scumbag


A registered sex offender gave alcohol and marijuana to two teenage girls, molested one of them and wrote “bitch” on her forehead while she was unconscious, police said Wednesday.

Kermit “Casper” Flanders, 39, was arrested Tuesday after an investigation into an April 11 incident at his home in St. Albans. He pleaded not guilty Wednesday in Vermont District Court in Burlington to one count of sexual assault and two counts of furnishing alcohol to a minor. He was ordered to be held without bail at Chittenden Regional Correctional Facility.

Vermont State Police called the case disturbing. “He’s a convicted sex offender who’s continuing to re-offend,” said Trooper Benjamin Katz, a state police detective.

A 17-year-old girl told authorities she accompanied Flanders’ niece to his home, where they mixed cocktails called Sex on the Beach, drank them and smoked a marijuana joint that was provided by Flanders, who crushed five pills of OxyContin and snorted the powder, according to an affidavit filed Wednesday.

The girl told police that, despite her requests to be left alone, Flanders picked her up and took her to his bed, where he pulled off her pants and underwear and assaulted her, according to the affidavit.

When she woke up the next morning, she realized Flanders had used a black marker to write “bitch” on her forehead and “mouth” on her chin, draw on her nose and write her name on her knee, the affidavit said.

The Burlington Free Press does not reveal the names of people who claim to be sexual-assault victims without their consent.

Flanders was convicted of sexual assault on a minor in 1995 and lewd and lascivious conduct in 1997, when he became registered as a sex offender.

Police also said Flanders had changed residences without notifying the registry, a violation of his probation.

Defense attorney John Findlay, who represented Flanders at Wednesday’s arraignment, wouldn’t comment on the new case.

Franklin County prosecutor Diane Wheeler was not in court for the arraignment, which was moved to neighboring Chittenden County in accordance with a new policy to hold a suspect’s court appearances in the county in which he or she is jailed. She could not be reached for comment afterward. Two telephone messages left at her St. Albans office were not immediately returned.

Lawrence Halbert – Repeat Sex Offender – Molested child in Costco

Halbert has three prior convictions for sexual crimes that include a 1979 conviction for molesting a child under 14, a 1980 conviction for a violent rape, and second rape and sexual assault conviction in 1989, Finney said.


A registered sex offender who was arrested Sunday in Concord for allegedly fondling a 9-year-old girl at a Costco store is scheduled to be arraigned in Contra Costa County Superior Court in Martinez Thursday afternoon.

Lawrence Halbert, a 50-year-old Concord man, has been charged with committing a felony lewd act on a child under 14 and two felony sex offender registration violations. He is also facing multiple enhancements related to his prior convictions, according to court records.

According to Concord police Sgt. Mike Finney, Halbert was at the Costco store at 2400 Monument Blvd. Sunday when he allegedly reached down and fondled a 9-year-old girl’s buttocks.

The child’s father allegedly saw the act and confronted Halbert.

Halbert allegedly told the father that he had touched the child accidentally, but the father didn’t believe him and called police.

One of the officers who responded to the call had been assigned to monitor Halbert and knew he was a repeat sex offender, Finney said.

Halbert has three prior convictions for sexual crimes that include a 1979 conviction for molesting a child under 14, a 1980 conviction for a violent rape, and second rape and sexual assault conviction in 1989, Finney said.

Halbert served his entire sentence and spent years at Atascadero State Hospital in the sexually violent predator treatment program, but was released without parole in 1998. He lived in Oakland until 2007 when he moved to Concord and police have been monitoring him ever since, Finney said.

“There was a high probability he would re-offend,” Finney said, citing Halbert’s alleged lack of remorse for his previous crimes.

“The problem is that these guys don’t stop,” Finney said.

Halbert’s bail has been set at $1.65 million. He is scheduled to be arraigned at 1:30 p.m.

Because of his prior convictions, Halbert could face a life sentence if he is convicted of the current charges under the state’s three strikes law, Finney said.

Marcellus Norman Jacob – Ticking Time Bomb Captured

The parole board initially refused to grant Jacob parole, citing his “disrespect for the law, impulsivity, chronic anger, low tolerance for frustration, substance misuse, sexual preoccupation, deviant patterns of sexual arousal, attitudes condoning the sexual misuse of women and dishonesty.”

Convicted sex offender Marcellus Norman Jacob has been arrested after walking away from a Vancouver halfway house.

Investigators with the Integrated Sexual Predator Observation Team (ISPOT) made the arrest after two Canada-wide warrants were issued for Jacob.

“Mr. Jacob has a long history and is well-known to police,” said RCMP Acting Staff Sgt. Tim Shields.

“The community is safer with him back in custody.

“He was on parole, so he will likely have to remain in custody for the remainder of his sentence.”

Jacob, who went AWOL April 2, was released in 2006 after serving two-thirds of his seven-year sentence for the knifepoint sexual assault of a Whitehorse woman in 2001.

In his sentencing in 2002, Yukon Territorial Court Judge Barry Stuart described Jacob as a “ticking bomb,” with a “propensity for violence and for sexually inappropriate behaviour.”

Jacob, then 20, was armed with a knife when he broke into a woman’s house in Whitehorse while she slept.

For several hours he forced her to carry out “deplorable, degrading acts,” including multiple physical and sexual assaults, according to the original sentencing report.

He was first released by the National Parole Board to a Vancouver halfway house in October 2006.

He disappeared one month later and was on the lam for four days before he turned himself in.

He also walked away from a halfway house on Aug. 10, 2008.

The parole board initially refused to grant Jacob parole, citing his “disrespect for the law, impulsivity, chronic anger, low tolerance for frustration, substance misuse, sexual preoccupation, deviant patterns of sexual arousal, attitudes condoning the sexual misuse of women and dishonesty.”
