Shay Michael Benson – Repeat Sex Offender – Rapes a woman HE KNEW in front of her house


A registered sex offender has been arrested after he allegedly raped a woman in the front seat of his car while parked on the street in front of her home.

Shay Michael Benson, 21, of Burnsville was charged this week with one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of third-degree criminal sexual conduct by the Scott County Attorney’s Office.

According to the criminal complaint, Benson was never assigned a risk level in regards to his registered sex offender status because he didn’t serve any time in prison for the previous offense.

While information about Level 3 sex offenders is made public, information for lower level offenders is not, according to state law. A risk level is only applied when prison time is served and a review committee meets to discuss and evaluate a risk level based on factors that play into the likelihood of the sex offender to re-offend.

According to the most recent criminal complaint:

Police responded to a home on Joppa Avenue at about 12:20 a.m. on May 25 to investigate a report of a sexual assault that allegedly occurred on May 24.

The 21-year-old woman told police that she knew Benson. She said he stopped by with a friend of hers to see if she wanted to go out with them. The woman agreed, and drove with Benson to drop off the mutual friend at her home.

After dropping the friend off, Benson drove the woman back to her home, parked on the street and allegedly sexually assaulted her at about 11:40 p.m. on May 24.

The woman told police while parked in front of her home, Benson began kissing her. The woman told Benson to stop, but he continued and began touching her. She told police she tried to push Benson off of her, but he continued and at one point held her arms down with one hand and choked her with the other. The woman told police she was crying and repeatedly told Benson to stop, but he told her to be quiet, pulled her hair and continued to assault her.

At one point, the woman told police her phone started ringing and she tried to answer it, but Benson wouldn’t let her.

The woman told police she then heard her mother calling her name from inside the home, when the woman yelled for Benson to get off her, the complaint stated. Benson finally stopped, and the woman grabbed her clothing, ran into her home and told her mother what happened. The woman’s mother then called 911.

A sexual assault exam was done at Fairview Ridges in Burnsville, where injuries consistent with a sexual assault were confirmed, the complaint stated.

After taking the report, police ran a background check on Benson and learned he was the registered owner of the vehicle the woman described and that he is a registered sex offender.

Police went to Benson’s apartment on Glenhurst Avenue in Burnsville where they spoke with his ex-girlfriend who stated Benson left that night at about 5:30 p.m. and had not yet come home.

When Benson returned home, police arrested him. He refused to give a statement to police.

Benson’s criminal record shows a domestic assault by strangulation conviction in Dakota County in 2006, a variety of probation violations and a violation of an order for protection of domestic abuse in Scott County in 2008.

Benson is currently in custody at the Scott County Jail on $100,000 bail.

If convicted, Benson faces maximum of 25 years in prison and/or a $35,000 fine and a mandatory minimum sentence of 90 months in prison for the second-degree criminal sexual conduct charge. Benson also faces a maximum of 15 years in prison and/or a $30,000 fine for the third-degree criminal sexual conduct charge.

Repeat Sex Offender – Internet Predator – Child Molester – Rapist – Over 60 victims

A man who allegedly threatened to kill dozens of girls if they didn’t pose nude for him in front of a webcam was charged on Friday by the district court in Uppsala.

The 33-year-old suspect has been charged with perpetrating a widespread web-based assault on more than 60 girls aged between 11- and 20-years-old who live all across the country.

Some of the 65 charges filed against the man include aggravated child exploitation through sexual posing, raping a child, and sexual coercion.

The man targeted his victims using internet chat sites popular with Swedish young people, later mapping out the locations of both girls and their close relatives, according to the Upsala Nya Tidningen (UNT) newspaper.

After making direct contacting the girls via internet chats, the 33-year-old would then force them to strip or perform sexual acts by threatening to harm or kill them and their relatives.

The investigation has been carried out in strict secrecy, and even large sections of the indictment have been classified.

Nevertheless, prosecutor Thomas Bälter Nordenman elected to hold a press conference on Friday to reveal some of the details uncovered by the police’s investigation.

According to reports from the girls, as well as their friends and families, the 33-year-old father of two told the girls he would come and kill them if they didn’t do as he said.

“Most of the girls the man exploited and threatened are 15-years-old. He sought out the girls systematically on the internet and has been very crafty,” said Bälter Nordenman, according to the TT news agency.

According to the prosecutor, the suspect recorded all of the sequences in which the girls had posed nude and performed sexual acts and saved the clips on his computer.

“But we have no evidence that the man spread the films further,” said the prosecutor.

Many of the victims have been terrified, convinced that the 33-year-old was prepared to carry out his death threats.

“There still may be a large number of unreported cases,” said Bälter Nordenman

“We believe he’s molested significantly more girls than whose we know of already.”

Police were able to crack the case after the man was accused of raping a 14-year-old girl from the Stockholm area who he had known previously, rather than through an encounter on the internet.

Shortly thereafter, a girl from western Sweden contacted police to say a man had contacted her on the internet and forced her to perform sex acts in front of a webcam.

After tracing the IP-address, investigators then discovered that the accused rapist and the webcam molester were the same man, according to UNT.

The 33-year-old was arrested in December and has been in custody ever since while police and prosecutors have carried out their investigations.

In the 1990s, the man was convicted for similar crimes in which he persuaded girls to perform sexual acts over the telephone.

The man’s trial is expected to begin in early June, and is expected to include testimony from all of his victims.

Mark Lee Owens – Repeat Sex Offender – Serial paedophile


A serial paedophile who raped at least three young children and forced them to have sex together has been jailed for life and called a “serious danger”.

In one instance Mark Lee Owens, 43, raped a five-year-old girl after forcing her to watch him have simulated sex on an inflatable doll.

It took place in an attic he had access to when living in the Port Talbot area.

Judge Huw Davies QC said at Swansea Crown Court that Owens treated the abuse “as some form of entertainment”.

Owens, previously known as David Thomas Owens, stood unmoved as he was jailed for life, with the judging giving a minimum term recommendation of eight years.

His address given in court was in Ashton-under-Lyne, Manchester, but he was living in the Port Talbot area, at the time of assaults.

His victims ranged in age from five upwards and the abuse ran over a period of years when he had access to them from 1999.

They included two girls and two boys, one of whom remains too traumatised even to talk about what happened to him.

You treated this as some form of entertainment
……….Judge Huw Davies QC

In addition to the “horrific” sexual acts he carried out himself, Owens also forced two boys to have sex together.

The boys were also encouraged to have sex with one of the girls he targeted for sex himself.

Last month he had admitted a series of specimen charges which covered rape, indecent assault and gross indecency.

Judge Davies revealed during his summing up that Owens had been jailed for 15 months in March 2002 for an indecent assault on a six-year-old girl.

While in prison one of his victims spoke to an adult about her abuse and it was reported to the social services, but no action was ever taken.

On his release from prison Owens moved to Merthyr Tydfil where he exposed himself to mothers taking young children to school.

Mr Davies said that Owens’ attitude to the abuse of the children was that “you treated this as some form of entertainment”.

He said that the impact of the abuse against the children “was such as to cause them a deep and lasting trauma”.

But he conceded that Owens’ admission of the charges against him had at least saved them the ordeal of testifying in a trial.

Mr Davies added that the pre-sentence report made it clear that Owens represented a high risk of reoffending and was a high risk to children.

“You are, and you will remain, a serious danger to children for a period so long that it would be impossible for anyone today, in my position, to estimate,” he said.

After the case, Tony Clements, chair of the Neath Port Talbot safeguarding children board said: “In all that we do, the safeguarding of children is of paramount importance.

“The circumstances surrounding this case were highly complex and action was taken by a number of agencies, including social services.

The roles of all of these agencies will now be subject to a serious case review, the findings of which will be made public.”

He said it would be inappropriate to discuss or analyse the case in any more detail until the review was complete.

Convicted paedophile – Repeat Sex Offender – Reoffending while on leave

A 43-year-old convicted paedophile has been arrested on suspicions that he molested a little girl while on temporary leave from court-ordered psychiatric care.

The man had previously been granted short furloughs from a psychiatric clinic in Sundsvall, but was recently granted leave lasting five hours.

The 43-year-old reportedly made contact with the girl’s mother via the internet and was able to get close to the little girl as a result, according to the Sundsvalls Tidning newspaper.

“It was due to our internal security procedures that this was discovered and we filed a complaint with the police. I take what happened very seriously,” said clinic head Erik Söderberg, who has launched an investigation into shortcomings in procedures related to the man’s care.

The man has been a patient at the clinic in Sundsvall for the last decade. On Wednesday, police took him in for questioning and then ordered him detained on suspicions of sexually molesting a minor and for serious child pornography crimes.

Police also found child pornography on a computer and mobile phone owned by the 43-year-old, who was housed in a wing of the clinic where computers and mobile phones are permitted.

Randall Knodle Bryant – Repeat Sex Offender – Child Predator Busted while on Probation


BURGAW, NC (WECT) – A Castle Hayne resident is facing charges, accused with committing sex crimes in Pender County.

35-year-old Randall Knodle Bryant, a registered sex offender, is charged with second degree kidnapping, statutory rape, and indecent liberties with a child.

Detective Scott Lawson said Bryant was charged with similar crimes in Ohio, and was still on probation at the time of Thursday night’s arrest.

According to Lawson, Bryant tried to solicit sex from a 15-year-old boy near a bus stop in Hampstead. The boy refused and immediately told his mother.

“I’m really angry, to be quite honest with you,” said the teen’s mother. “I just think our children are innocent, and they need to be protected.”

His mother also said she is talking with her son about the incident regularly to make sure he knows it was not his fault. She is urging parents to talk to their children as often as possible and to always ask questions.

She said the situation could have been much worse, but it has shaken up the family and plan to move to another home.

Bryant showed little emotion as Detective Lawson silently escorted him inside the jail in handcuffs on Thursday night.

He is being held in the Pender County jail under a $1 million bond.

Larry Hostetler – Repeat Sex Offender – Stalking child in Kmart – 75 years old!


MISHAWAKAA 75-year-old Goshen man, a convicted sex offender, was arrested Thursday after police say he exposed himself to a child in the toy aisle of a local department store.

The alleged incident occurred about 4:20 p.m. at the Kmart at 420 W. McKinley Ave.

Upon arrival, Mishawaka police met with a store employee, who was standing out front with the suspect, Larry Hostetler.

The employee told police he detained Hostetler after viewing him on closed-circuit television acting suspiciously in the toy aisle. Specifically, it appeared Hostetler had briefly exposed himself to a young child, the employee told police.

Hostetler was placed in the back of a squad car. Though not asked, he admitted to being a sex offender, police said.

Police then spoke with the victim’s grandmother, who told police she did not see Hostetler expose himself, but witnessed him fumbling with his clothes and then reaching down to tie his shoe immediately following the alleged incident.

She told police it appeared Hostetler had been following her and her 3-year-old granddaughter from the time they entered the store.

The victim, meanwhile, when asked what had happened, told police the man “showed me his boy part,” police said. She then pointed to the groin area on a doll to indicate the area of the body Hostetler had exposed, police said.

Hostetler was arrested and booked into St. Joseph County Jail on suspicion of committing a sex offense against a child, police said.

Court records indicate Hostetler was previously convicted in Elkhart County in 2004 of vicarious sexual gratification and sentenced to three years in prison. He is registered as a sex offender in Elkhart County.

James Walmsley – Repeat Sex Offender – Gets measly 11 years for new rapes

A TAXI driver who raped and molested three women in in his cab was branded a “sexual predator” as he was locked up today.

Judge Nigel Gilmour QC told James Walmsley he had targeted his young and attractive victims as he jailed him for a total of 11 years and two months, with a three-year extended licence.

There were angry scenes before, during and following the one-hour hearing at Liverpool crown court.

Five police offices divided relatives of the victims and Walmsley’s supporters.

The 37-year-old, of Lynwood Gardens, Orrell Park, was ordered to stay silent by the judge after an angry outburst, but screamed “liars” as he was led down.

Since his unanimous conviction by the jury of two counts of rape and five of sexual assault, it has been revealed the sexual predator could have been stopped years before.

He was given a community sentence in 2000 after having sex with a 14-year-old girl in the back of his cab, but was allowed to keep his Hackney licence.

Walmsley then went on to attack the three lone women between July 2007 and June last year.

Jailing him, Judge Gilmour said: “You are and have been for some time, a sexual predator.

“You are a man with a high sexual drive who has an extremely high opinion of your own attractiveness to women.”

Walmsley admitted he had slept with an unknown number of women in the back of his cab, despite living with his partner and two children.

Jeffrey Thomas Partlow – Tried to be a Repeat Sex Offender – Got Prison instead

MUSKEGON COUNTY — A convicted sex offender has been sentenced to prison for failing to register as a sex offender and violating a school safety zone.

Muskegon County Circuit Judge James M. Graves Jr. this week ordered Jeffrey Thomas Partlow, 39, who listed his address in court records as 68 E. Lincoln, Muskegon Heights, to prison for 16 months to six years for the sex offender violation and 223 days for the school zone offense.

A separate case of resisting police and loitering near a school was dismissed earlier when Partlow pleaded no contest to the other charges.

Partlow was first arrested in October for allegedly “hanging around” his parents’ home, 1637 Lawnel, which is near a school bus stop as well as Mona Shores Middle School.

Neighbors began complaining to police when the school year started about Partlow allegedly watching children from a window. He also was appearing near the bus stop when children got off the school bus, police said earlier.

Mark Dean Grassi – Repeat Sex Offender – Babysitting Molester – Wasn’t listed on Registry!

A registered sex offender is accused of sexually assaulting three girls he baby-sat at his Brooklyn Center apartment complex and taking pornographic photos of one of the girls.

Mark Dean Grassi, 51, who also goes by the name Roland Rondel Campbell, was charged Thursday with first-degree criminal sexual conduct, second-degree criminal sexual conduct and possession of child pornography.

Authorities are still investigating whether there are other victims. They sent a letter to residents of the Earle Brown Farm apartment complex about Grassi’s arrest.

A woman who lives in the complex told police that Grassi, who had been a caretaker at the apartment, baby-sat her children and they called him “Grandpa,” according to the charges. He had used her digital camera and when he returned it, she found two pictures of a naked young child. She recognized the child as her 2-year-old daughter because of a scratch and birthmark, the charges said.

The woman’s 11-year-old daughter later said Grassi molested her and asked to take pictures of her. Another 11-year-old girl who lived in the apartment told police that Grassi inappropriately touched her while she was in a bathing suit and that she had seen him molesting the 2-year-old girl while he changed her diaper, the charges said.

After an initial search of Grassi’s computers, investigators said they found about 200 images of naked girls appearing to be between the ages of 5 and 12. Grassi told police that he took pictures of one of the girls and that he had “pictures that he shouldn’t have,” according to the charges.

Grassi was required to register as a Level 1 sex offender because of a conviction involving a 4-year-old girl he baby-sat in the early ’90s. Brooklyn Center Police Chief Scott Bechthold said residents of the apartment complex were not notified about Grassi’s prior conviction because Level 1 sex offender information is not public. He said Grassi had completed regular compliance checks.
