Brian Tomkinson – Repeat Sex Offender – Grooming Child Predator

A LEEDS mum whose life was ripped apart by a paedophile rapist has spoken out about her ordeal to encourage more victims to come forward.

Maxine Foy was sexually abused and raped by Brian Tomkinson, 75, of Belle Isle, from the age of just six.

Now 25, Mrs Foy is urging other victims to come forward after Tomkinson was jailed for 10 years at Leeds Crown Court.

The mum-of-five was one of two victims who gave evidence in the week-long trial last month. She says it marked the end of a long, harrowing journey and has waived her right to anonymity in a bid to tell her story.

She said that, as a child, she would often to go to Tomkinson’s house to play.

“My mum was best friends with his wife and they’d do stuff together. When she wasn’t in, I would stay with him doing the garden and things like that. He would offer me biscuits and ice cream.”

The abuse took place between 1989 and 1993. “I remember the day vividly. All I got was a question. He said: ‘Are you all right to….’ I said yes; I didn’t know what he was on about. He just gave me a kiss on my cheek like my dad would. That day he took me upstairs and we sat on the bed. It was like he was testing me to see how far I would go. I didn’t know what I was doing, I was six.”

She describes how the sexual abuse became progressively worse – and always took place while his wife was out.

“Until I started sex education at school I didn’t know what had gone on. I suddenly realised and it sunk in what he had done. I thought my friends might laugh at me because I had let this man do these things and I had kept going back to his house.”

Mrs Foy stopped going back to the house when she reached 10 – after he had raped her. She says she carried guilt with her and never even told her husband Lee, 28, until two years ago.

“I’d seen these two girls going into his house. I thought they cannot sleep there, I have to stop this, ” she said.

She told her health visitor who reported it to the police. “The police already had a complaint about him but didn’t have enough evidence. CID took my notes and found the previous complaint from the other girl. I didn’t even know that there was someone else.”

Tomkinson was charged with four counts of rape and 11 of indecent assault.

Mrs Foy says the trial was horrific as she and the other victim had to be cross examined. Both were in floods of tears reliving the horror and the other victim was even physically sick in court.

She added: “But it was worth it. If there are victims out there I would say – speak out. If they have been hurt by him, they must contact police. You must speak out, you are not alone.”

Tomkinson was disqualified from working with children and was put on the sex offenders register for life.

Detective Inspector Paul Smith, said: “We want to commend the bravery of the women who have come forward in this case and hope they will now have some sense of closure.

“If there are any other victims out there we are not aware of we would ask them to come forward and speak to us on 0845 606 0606.”

Robin Frampton – Repeat Sex Offender – Baby Raping Pedo tries to sue

A NOTORIOUS paedophile is suing police at taxpayers’ expense for alleged wrongful arrest. Here is a list of Robin Frampton’s convictions…

November 1980:

Sentenced in Doncaster to two years’ jail. While wearing women’s clothes, he grabbed two girls aged nine and ten, threatened them with a knife and attempted to rape at least one of them.

February 1989:

Sentenced at Winchester to eight years for forcing his way into the home of a 71 year-old woman and raping her.

July 1999:

Armed with a knife, he indecently assaulted a prostitute. Sentenced to one year in jail, the sentence was increased to three years at the Court of Appeal. Required to register for life on the sex offenders’ register.

July 2006:

Arrested and detained overnight in North Yorkshire for failing to comply with requirements of the sex offenders’ register. Gave false name and address. Prosecution offered no evidence and the case was dismissed in November 2006.

Robin Frampton, 53, who was put on the sex offenders’ register for life after an “appalling” indecent assault on a prostitute, was arrested in Selby in July 2006 for giving false details and failing to notify police of a change of address.

North Yorkshire Police feared he was about to commit an offence against a woman he had met through a telephone dating service, who was unaware of his sickening criminal past.

Frampton, who is also known as Robert Williams, was charged and kept in prison for almost four months before the Crown Prosecution Service dropped the case.

With legal aid funded by the taxpayer he took the police force to Leeds County Court yesterday, claiming thousands of pounds in damages for wrongful arrest, false imprisonment and malicious prosecution.

His barrister Rodney Ferm told the hearing: “All of us have rights, including the right not to be wrongly arrested, and we also have rights, provided by European legislation, for our private life not to be interfered with.

“In the case of a sex offender with an obligation to register, his rights are circumscribed by additional and quite onerous obligations.

“But if there is a breach of his rights, even within those restrictions, by the police, then there is no proper basis for treating him any differently to any other member of the community who could have, by definition, been arrested.

“No offence of any kind here was in fact committed by Mr Frampton.”

The court heard that Frampton had told his wife he was attending a barbecue at a friend’s house when he travelled from his Southampton home to North Yorkshire.

He went to a police station in Selby to inform them out of “courtesy” that he was staying in the area and showed officers a document which suggested his placement on the sex offenders’ register had expired. He also failed to give police the correct name and address of the woman he was visiting, but he told the court he got the details wrong because he had never met her.

Detectives, believing that he had committed an offence by failing to register his new address within three days, traced him to the Selby woman’s home and arrested him.

Peter Johnson, for the force, said: “These were officers with a genuine concern… they were simply doing their public duty.”

But Mr Ferm said officers could not be sure whether the three-day period had elapsed because they did not know precisely when Frampton had left Southampton.

Mark Pendleton – Repeat Sex Offender – Re-offends while in prison

A WA pedophile jailed for horrific sex crimes against girls aged four and five years has been caught with child pornography inside his cell.

Former pre-primary school teacher Mark Pendleton, 49, was nabbed with the material while serving a 16-year sentence for sexually penetrating and indecently recording 11 girls between January 1995 and February 2000.

The major breach of security comes as statistics obtained by The Sunday Times reveal that hundreds of visitors to WA jails have been banned for attempting to smuggle in contraband – with suspected drugs, drug paraphernalia and pornography topping the list.

From next month, prison officers at maximum-security prisons at Albany, Casuarina, Hakea and Bandyup will have an extra weapon to catch smugglers – biometric iris-scanning equipment.

The Department of Corrective Services confirmed this week that Pendleton, who was convicted of 171 sex offences, had been found with child pornography in prison in the past two years.

The Prisoners Review Board this month denied Pendleton parole, saying he remained a risk to the community.

Gustavo David Fuentes – Giggling-Grooming-Cowardly Child Predator

Gustavo David Fuentes, 26, told his 14-year-old victim that she was “hot.”

He videotaped himself having sex with her, telling her the two would watch the video on their wedding day. And he asked her what it was like to have sex with a “rock star,” referring to himself.

A Multnomah County Circuit judge Friday sentenced Fuentes — who now is a convicted sex offender — to 16 2/3 years in prison. A jury in April convicted the Southeast Portland husband and father of 29 counts of producing child pornography, possessing child pornography, sexual abuse and statutory rape in 2007 and 2008.

Fuentes’ case is rare because it offers a glimpse into the psychology of sexual predators, and the tactics they use to groom their young victims, said deputy district attorney John Casalino.

Fuentes, who insisted on his innocence, brought the case to trial. During the trial, 12 jurors watched video he’d recorded of his crimes. In it, they heard his flirtations, his giggles, the things he said to gain the trust of his victim.

Experts say child predators often try to make their victims feel special, lather on attention and tell them how much they care for them

Jurors also viewed photographs Fuentes taken, some clothed and some not.

“Generally, (defendants) don’t subject everyone to that in the courtroom,” Casalino said.

Fuentes’ wife found the photographs on Fuentes’ computer and the video on a camcorder in the closet. She told relatives, who called police. Fuentes is related to the victim.

Fuentes’ case also is unusual because most defendants don’t go to trial with such powerful evidence against them.

During Fuentes’ sentencing hearing Friday, his defense attorney told the judge that Fuentes weighed only 120 pounds, and was terrified of going to prison.

“His thinking process was very paralyzed,” said attorney Scott Raivio.

Raivio also said Fuentes, who has an immigration hold placed on him, will likely be deported at the end of his prison sentence.

Judge John Wittmayer said Fuentes had the right to go to trial, and he wouldn’t hold that against him.

Fuentes apologized for his crimes, and said he’s asked God to forgive him.

In asking for leniency, Fuentes’ sister said he was a good person and that she’d trust him alone with her two daughters.

The prosecutor asked the judge to give Fuentes nearly 22 years in prison. His defense attorney asked for less than 6 years, the minimum Oregon law allows. The judge had the ability to sentence Fuentes to more than 100 years.

Ahmed al-Anzi – Repeat Sex Offender – Boy Raper Beheaded and Crucified

Saudi authorities beheaded and crucified a man convicted of brutally slaying an 11-year-old boy and his father, the Interior Ministry announced.

According to the statement issued by the ministry Friday, shop owner Ahmed al-Anzi molested the boy and then strangled him with a length of rope. He then stabbed the boy’s father to death when the man came looking for his son.

He hid both the bodies in his shop, the statement said, adding that al-Anzi threatened police with a knife when they came to arrest him.

Al-Anzi had previously been convicted of sodomy and owning pornographic films, a crime in conservative Saudi Arabia.

Crucifying the headless body in a public place is a way to set an example, according to the kingdom’s strict interpretation of Islam. Normally those convicted of rape, murder and drug trafficking in Saudi Arabia are just beheaded.

London-based rights group Amnesty International criticized al-Anzi’s execution and crucifixion.

“It is horrific that beheading and crucifixions still happen,” said Hassiba Hadj Sahraoui of Amnesty International in a statement Friday.

“King Abdullah should show true leadership and commute all death sentences if Saudi Arabia is to have any role to play as a global leader or member of the G20,” said Sahraoui.

According to an Associated Press count, Friday’s execution brought the number to 35 beheading this year in the kingdom. In 2008, 102 people were beheaded.

America appears to be too lenient with repeat baby rapers

Curtis Thompson – Repeat Sex Offender – Guilty of Murder

Thompson had previously served an 18-year prison sentence for four rapes in 1985. Upon completing the sentence in 2003, he was freed by a jury although King County prosecutors wanted to send him to a secure-treatment facility for sexual offenders.

A convicted sex predator already facing life in prison for other crimes was found guilty Wednesday of killing a Seattle woman in the Sand Point neighborhood nearly five years ago.

A King County jury deliberated about a day before finding Curtis Thompson guilty of first-degree murder in the slaying of Deborah Byars, 45, in August 2004. Jurors found that the crime was sexually motivated.

Thompson, whose frequent outbursts have disrupted court, refused to enter the courtroom to hear the verdict. Superior Court Judge Palmer Robinson ordered King County Jail staff to force him into the courtroom.

Someone in the audience clapped after the verdict was announced, angering Thompson.

“I hope you all die in hell, you vindictive people,” Thompson blurted out in response.

“He’s mean, he’s cruel, he’s sadistic, he’s a coward,” said Byars’ older sister, Nanci Newhall, after the verdict was read. “He has no redemption.”

Earlier this year, Thompson was sentenced to life in prison without parole for the rape of an Eastlake woman and the assault of two women at a University District apartment building around the time of Byars’ slaying.

Because of the earlier convictions and Wednesday’s verdict, Thompson will be sent to the state prison system to serve multiple life sentences.

After the verdict was read, Senior Deputy Prosecutor Scott O’Toole and defense attorney John Hicks expressed relief that their time with the most disruptive defendant either has ever seen is finally over.

“He needs to be held accountable. It’s incredibly satisfying to know that this community is a little bit safer,” O’Toole said.

Hicks, during his closing statement Tuesday, said that police were overlooking another man connected with Byars because they knew Thompson had an extensive criminal history.

“Mr. Thompson should not have his past held against him,” Hicks said.

In February, a jury convicted Thompson of rape, burglary and vehicle theft for breaking into a woman’s home on Aug. 17, 2004, and raping her. After the assault Thompson poured bleach on the woman’s body in an attempt to hide evidence.

“Mr. Thompson should not have his past held against him,” Hicks said.

In October, a jury found Thompson guilty of assaulting two women at the U-District apartment building. The victims said Thompson followed them into the building on Aug. 23, 2004, forced them into an elevator, robbed one of her engagement ring and forced the other to remove her top.

“Mr. Thompson should not have his past held against him,” Hicks said.

Thompson had previously served an 18-year prison sentence for four rapes in 1985. Upon completing the sentence in 2003, he was freed by a jury although King County prosecutors wanted to send him to a secure-treatment facility for sexual offenders.

“Mr. Thompson should not have his past held against him,” Hicks said.

Henry John Germain – Filthy Pedophile’s sentence applauded

Henry John Germain closed his eyes in a Hayward courtroom as four women recounted the repercussions they face after being abused by him as children.

Moments later, with applause coming from the victims’ families and friends, he was taken into custody to serve a 15-year sentence in state prison for child molestation.

The 62-year-old former tennis pro at Castlewood Country Club entered a no contest plea April 28 to three charges of sexually abusing children under the age of 14. Prior to that, Germain plead not guilty Jan. 9 to 16 charges of sex crimes against six female victims.

District Attorney Susan Torrance told the judge that this case was one of the most egregious she had seen, citing the length of time the alleged abuse had gone on and the number of victims. In addition to six victims with charges coming forward from the Pleasanton area, 10 women claimed they were molested when Germain was a tennis pro in the Palm Desert area in the early 80s.

“Cases like this can’t be done without the brave victims coming forward,” she said. “The victims are very brave and that’s why we ended up with a good resolution.”

Four women gave tear-filled victim statements to the court Wednesday, stating that their childhood innocence had been wrongfully taken away by Germain. One woman said that Germain has taken no ownership of his actions.

Another woman claimed Germain had abused her for three and a half years, beginning when she was 11 years old.

“He violently stole my youth and innocence,” she said tearfully

The young woman said she didn’t come forward earlier because he said no one would believe a young girl over an adult.

Germain, who did not speak at the sentencing, was originally arrested at the country club Sept. 2 after three victims wrote letters with molestation allegations to officials at the club. Shortly after, three more victims came forward and brought charges against him.

His bail was set at $1.08 million and he bailed out on a property bond, only to be arrested shortly after when a 16th charge was added. His bail increased to $1.4 million and he again bailed out on the same property bond.

Judge Kevin Murphy said Germain must serve 85 percent of his 15-year sentence. Once he’s completed his prison time, the Dublin resident would be on parole for 10 years and must register as a sex offender, pay restitution to the six victims and stay away from the victims.

John Edward Snyder – Repeat Sex Offender Tries to lure boy

A registered sex offender was in Lancaster County Prison Friday after he allegedly attempted to lure a boy into a city parking garage elevator Thursday morning, police said.

John Edward Snyder, 42, of Lancaster, who is registered as a offender under Megan’s Law, is accused of attempting to lure a 10-year-old boy into an elevator at the Prince Street garage. The boy, who was on his way to the Fulton Elementary School, walked away, police said in a news release Friday.

According to the release, Snyder then approached the child and tried to lure him with money toward an entrance to the garage on North Prince Street. The child left the area unharmed and reported the incident to his mother, police said.

On Friday morning, police said, the boy, walking to school with his mother, saw Snyder at Orange and Queen streets. Police were called, and Snyder was arrested.

Detective Andrew Morgan charged Snyder with one count of luring a child into a motor vehicle or structure. Snyder was arraigned before District Judge Janice Jimenez. Bail was set at $250,000.

Chester A. Stiles – Remorseless – Rationalizing Whining Pedophile – Gets Life

Convicted child molester Chester A. Stiles will spend the rest of his life behind bars.

Stiles was sentenced to life in prison on 21 of 22 charges Friday after being convicted in March on 22 counts of lewdness and sexual assault with two little girls.

He will be eligible for parole in 140 years.

Stiles was convicted March 3 on 10 counts of lewdness with a child under the age of 14, 11 counts of sexual assault with a minor under 14, and one count of attempted sexual assault with a minor under 14 for sexually molesting two girls, ages 2 and 6, in 2003.

He received an additional eight to 20 years on the attempted sexual assault conviction. Stiles’ attorneys said they are planning an appeal.

Wearing a Clark County Detention Center shirt, blue pants, and bright orange socks and sandals, Stiles read a prepared statement. He criticized law enforcement, the prosecution and his defense, slamming his lawyers because “the truth was not considered as a viable defense strategy.”

He also criticized Nevada statutes that, he said, punish child abusers more harshly than murderers.

“I was convicted on 10 counts of lewdness with a minor, which carries 10 (years) to life, and 11 counts of sexual assault, which carries 20 to life. Twenty-one life sentences for a 12-minute videotape.

“I say this for my family, my son and the people who care about me — a 12-minute videotape that shows no use of force. No drugs, no violence or brutality. There are no tears, no threats, no blood. Indeed, a doctor could not find evidence of molestation and the child did not remember any event. Yet I’m to die in prison. So legislation dictates that a child’s virtue has more value than life itself.

“We see murderers getting a 10-year sentence in this town, while I incurred 21 life sentences for a non-violent act.”

Before District Court Judge Jennifer P. Togliatti handed down the sentence, Deputy District Attorney Mary Kay Holthus argued that the life sentences should be served consecutively.

“To me, what he has done — what he has put this family through, these children through, and quite frankly, all of society through — he should spend every year, every month, every week, every hour of every day that this court can give him behind bars,” she said. “And we should never have to worry if Mr. Stiles will get out and molest another child.”

Holthus said that although Stiles had mentioned incidents of rape and sexual abuse in his own childhood, that fact shouldn’t warrant sympathy.

“You know how bad it made you feel — why do you go on and do it? Why do you victimize other kids?” she said. “I don’t get how you come from that and end up being there.”

She read a letter in court from the mother of the youngest victim. The girl’s family was in the courtroom.

“My family has suffered greatly for the crime that has happened. Sleepless nights, worries, stress nightmares. I worry every day that she will remember what happened, and how that will affect her everyday life,” Holthus said while reading the woman’s letter. “This man has hurt my family so much, there are no words for it.”

Stiles videotaped himself molesting the toddler, who has no memory of what happened. That videotape was played for the jury during Stiles’ trial. Her case prompted a national manhunt after the tape was found in the desert in 2007 and police released images to identify the man and the child.

“Not only did he molest that 2-year-old, but he had to record it and memorialize it for all time. So it’s never going away — it will always exist and it isn’t something we can just imagine. It’s something that those of us who’ve had to see it, that we’ll never unseen,” Holthus said.

The other girl, now a young teenager, wasn’t videotaped and testified about the assault during the trial. She was not present Friday during sentencing.

Nineteen of the charges stemmed from acts on the tape. Three stemmed from the separate assault of the 6-year-old. The cases were tried together.

Stiles also faces federal charges of producing child pornography, which could carry a sentence of 15 to 30 years in federal prison. His federal trial was scheduled to begin earlier this month but was postponed until August.

Stacey Roundtree, one of Stiles’ public defenders, said the federal charges could be dropped in light of the sentences he received today. She said Stiles’ history of sexual abuse should be a factor in his sentencing.

“Punishing him as you would punish a serial killer is not appropriate in this case,” she said. “Mr. Stiles was in fact a victim of sexual abuse. It is a fact and it is a factor in this case. It isn’t anything that by any means Mr. Stiles wants the court to say is an excuse for a crime, but it is a mitigating circumstance that this court should consider.”


Before handing down the sentence, Togliatti called Stiles a “rationalizer and a self-pitier.”

Stiles has been in custody since he was arrested during a routine traffic stop in Henderson in October 2007.

“He should spend every minute of every day behind bars so society will never have to worry about him getting out and molesting another child,” Holthus said.

Charles Michael Roth – Claims his 4 year old victim "Seduced him"

An Orlando man was charged with sexually battering a 4-year-old Deltona girl, officials said Wednesday.

Charles Michael Roth, 55, was left to care for the girl and her siblings while their parents were out of town about two months ago, according to the Volusia County Sheriff’s Office. The sheriff’s Sex Crime Unit determined he touched and kissed the girl inappropriately, performed a sex act on her and showed her pornographic images on a computer.

Roth was arrested Wednesday in Orlando after a warrant was issued for his arrest.

The victim’s mother called the Sheriff’s Office after she noticed her daughter kiss her father with an open mouth, according to the arrest report. When asked about it, the girl told her mother that’s how Roth kissed her when he was watching her.

She told a case worker from the Children’s Advocacy Center that Roth asked her to get undressed and kissed different areas of her body.

Roth told investigators he was “seduced” by his victim and described her as a “domineering little girl,” according to the arrest report.

“It seemed innocent enough at the time but then it went a little bit too far,” Roth told investigators.

He said he is not a pedophile and kept apologizing, the report states.

He’s also accused of showing her pornographic images on a computer.

Roth was initially booked into the Orange County Jail and will be transported to the Volusia County Branch Jail with no bail allowed.
