David Harold Earls – Daughter comes forward "He raped me too"


The daughter of David Harold Earls, who received a one-year sentence last month after being convicted of raping a 4-year-old girl, says her father raped her when she was a child.

“He was a monster,” Denise Earls, 43, said Friday. “He got a year sentence. I got a life sentence.”

Attorney General Drew Edmondson said his office is looking into the allegations.

“My investigators have talked to this newly identified victim,” he said. “We’re attempting to determine whether, in all likelihood, the statute of limitations has run on those offenses. But it would be additional information that if there were a trial of this person, Earls, that information may be admissible to show the propensity to commit this kind of crime.

“What I’m asking my office to do is, even if we’re barred from doing whatever Mr. Earls pled to, are there other crimes that he committed against this victim or this victim’s sibling that have not been wrapped up in this plea bargain that might be revived in a new prosecution?” Edmondson said.

Earls, 64, is scheduled to serve just three more months in a county jail and won’t go to prison. The one-year plea bargain took into account the time he was booked and held in jail since Sept. 24, 2008.

As a result, Earls is tentatively scheduled to be released Sept. 24, Pittsburg County jail administrator Missi Eldridge said.

Earls pleaded no contest last month to charges of first-degree rape and forcible sodomy.

As part of a plea bargain, he was sentenced to a year of incarceration and 19 years of a 20-year sentence were suspended.

The May 13 plea bargain and the child’s pretrial court appearance in front of Earls brought national and international outcries, even threats to the district attorney, J.B. Miller, whose assistants agreed to the sentence.

Two state representatives have called for proceedings to oust District Judge Thomas Bartheld, who accepted the plea bargain.

His assistants and the child’s family feared the girl would freeze up during the planned closed circuit testimony, Miller said. That, along with Earls’ age and his terminal cancer led to the plea bargain before the trial began.

Tim Mills, Earls’ attorney, did not return calls for comment.

Denise Earls has established a pleasant life with her husband, daughter and grandchildren, and long ago separated from her father’s family.

So she knew nothing of her father’s criminal case until her estranged mother called this week.

She said her father’s sentence angers her.

“They have computers, they have all kinds of ways to determine that he has family members,” she said. “You would have thought they would have tried to contact me to see if anything happened to me.”

She said she is coming forward in hopes her story eventually will get Earls a longer prison term.

“With the judge and DA, they need to be held accountable for their decisions,” she said.

The inappropriate touching began when she was 8 years old, she said. Her father was divorced from her mother when she was 1 year old, she said. She seldom heard from him, she said.

The Oklahoman typically doesn’t identify rape victims, but Denise Earls said she wants to be identified and share story told.

She said she was living with her mother and grandmother in Blackwell when her father stopped by in 1974 and spent one night in the washroom behind the garage.

She said that’s where he raped her.

Her father told her if she told anyone, she would no longer be allowed to live with her grandmother, she said. So she kept quiet.

“I was too afraid,” she said. “My grandmother was my rock. My grandmother was my savior. She’s the reason I’m a good person today.”

Denise Earls said she confronted her father in 1995, after she’d been married many years.

“He said, ‘I was drunk. I’m sorry. I don’t remember,’” she said.

“I said, ‘I have vivid memories.’”

Christopher M. Tulip – Guilty of Multi-Victim Child Molestation – Fiancee doesn’t mind

Sperrazza called Tulip “diabolical and extremely dangerous. The fact that he has a fiancee with a 12-year-old child and she accepts that is mind-boggling.”

The sentencing of a man for sexually abusing a girl more than a decade ago became even more intense Friday when the judge revealed that the victim’s older sister and brother also had been abused by the same perpetrator.

Christopher M. Tulip, 33, of Cayuga Drive, Niagara Falls, was sentenced by Niagara County Judge Sara Sheldon Sperrazza to 9x to 14 years in prison for two counts of first-degree sexual abuse.

The only victim mentioned in the indictment, now 20, did not come forward until last July. Tulip cannot be prosecuted in the siblings’ cases because the statute of limitations in effect at the time of the alleged acts has expired, Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth R. Donatello said.

The girl was abused between the ages of 3 and 14; Tulip pleaded guilty to acts that occurred in 1997 and 1999.

“By the time I was 6, I had more sexual experience than my [current] friends in their 20s,” the woman said in court. “I can’t forget what Chris’ body smelled and felt like. . . . It was always the same: a mixture of smoke and alcohol.”

Tulip blamed substance abuse for his actions.

“If I had never picked up that first joint or first beer, it would have been different,” he said.

Sperrazza disagreed, asking, “Do you know how many people stand before the court with substance abuse problems worse than yours and never touch children? Just about everybody but you.”

That’s when the judge read aloud letters she received from the victim’s siblings, which revealed their abuse by Tulip. The sister wrote that she was abused between ages 9 and 11, and the brother said he was a victim between ages 7 and 12.

Sperrazza called Tulip “diabolical and extremely dangerous. The fact that he has a fiancee with a 12-year-old child and she accepts that is mind-boggling.”

Donald R. Peppers – Baby Raper – making pornography with 1 year old

The FBI has arrested a Hoffman Estates man and charged him with filming himself sexually abusing a baby and distributing the film.

Donald R. Peppers, 35, of the 500 block of Mesa Drive, faces federal charges of manufacture of child pornography and two counts of distribution of child pornography, according to an FBI statement. If convicted, he could spent 15 to 30 years in prison.

Peppers appeared Thursday in federal court in Iowa, where he was arrested. Authorities will transport him to Chicago where he’ll make a future court appearance, federal officials in Iowa said.

An undercover FBI agent searching for sexual predators on the Internet encoutnered Peppers on a sexually explicit Web site on May 17, and the agent began chatting with him via instant-messaging, the FBI said.

Using the handle “illinoisdonboy31,” Peppers sent the FBI agent images and videos of young children sexually abused by adults, according to the FBI complaint filed Wednesday.

Peppers also wrote messages detailing his fantasies about abusing a 1-year-old boy who was occasionally left in his care, the FBI said, adding Peppers was frustrated he didn’t enough time alone with the child before the child’s parent returned. Peppers also sent the agent non-pornographic photos of the child, the FBI said.

According to the FBI, Peppers dreamed about raping babies, and wrote he would buy a baby from a drug addict so “we could do whatever we want to him.”

Then on June 1, the FBI said Peppers sent the undercover agent a video file showing him fondling the baby he took care of.

“I send you something you promise never ever share it?” Peppers allegedly wrote in a message typed before the video was sent.

It’s unclear where the abuse was taking place.

The FBI contacted Peppers’ Internet service provider, Comcast, which provided records tracing Peppers’ screen name to his Hoffman Estates’ address, the FBI said. Hoffman Estates police Lt. Rich Russo said Peppers had no previous police record in the village.

A search of Peppers’ Hoffman Estates condo revealed the discovery of an “extensive” collection of DVDs, photographs and video tapes containing child pornography, the FBI added.

Agents arrested him Wednesday afternoon without incident in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, where Peppers had been on business. Authorities said they located him there after contacting the Chicago-area printing company where he works.

Peppers was arrested as part of the FBI’s Innocent Images Task Force, established in 1996 aimed to halt the production, distribution and possession of children pornography. The agency has 43 similar cases being investigated across the country, according to the FBI.

Walter Earl Taylor – Repeat Sex Offender – Baby Raper busted by DNA


BOYNTON BEACH – A sex offender who served almost 14 years for raping a child was arrested this morning, accused of raping another child more than 25 years ago, police said.

Authorities in Lake City arrested Walter Earl Taylor about 8 a.m. after DNA tests confirmed that he sexually battered his 3-year-old Boynton Beach neighbor on Sept. 28, 1983, police said.

Boynton Beach police will extradite him to Palm Beach County, where he will be charged with sexual battery on a minor. Taylor, 39, who now lives in Lake City, was 14 at the time of the rape. The 3-year-old could not describe the attack to police, and while investigators collected evidence, they had no suspects.

Twenty-five years went by until crime scene technician Rob Eichorst ran across the unsolved case while pouring through the agency’s cold cases. Last January, he examined the child’s clothing under a forensic light, technology the department did not have in 1983, police said.

Eichorst was attending a crime scene technician school in Quantico, Va., and was not immediately available.

However, Detective Astrel Labbe wrote in his arrest report: “Stains were located on the front of the child’s shirt and … pants. The stains tested positive for the presence of semen.”

Investigators asked the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office DNA lab to analyze the semen. However, because of a backlog in cases, the evidence was not sent for analysis until March.

Last week, Sheriff’s Office lab officials told Boynton Beach authorities they got a hit matching the semen found on the clothing.

“The match was to … Walter Earl Taylor,” Labbe wrote. “My investigation revealed that [Taylor] was living next to the victim at the time of the crime.”

Taylor is a registered sex offender, police said.

In July 1987, a judge sentenced him to 30 years for the March 15, 1986, rape of a child in Palm Beach County, according to the Florida Department of Corrections website. He was released from the Columbia Correctional Facility in March 2001 after serving 13 years and 8 months, DOC records show.

Chris Goddard – "Pedophile jail terms too light"

AUSTRALIA’S child pornography laws have been shown to be lenient, with US members of an internet pedophile ring jailed for life while its Townsville-based co-founder launches an appeal against his non-parole sentence of 32 months.

Former Australia Post human resources regional manager Derek Richard Mara, 30, will next month fight to have his commonwealth jail term cut after he was convicted as one of the four founding members of the internet’s oldest known pedophile ring, The Group, which financed made-to-order abuse movies and picture shoots of children, some just a few months old.

Mara – who carried the moniker of “Tech” – provided computer expertise to encrypt and hide hundreds of thousands of files of the material sold and shared around the world.

An investigation led by Queensland’s Taskforce Argos and involving Interpol and the FBI infiltrated the ring in 2006, and last year arrested 22 core members and identified another 2500 customers of child-sex websites in 20 countries. More than 40 children identified in the images were rescued from abuse during the investigation.

In recent months, The Australian has found that most of the 12 Americans convicted for their involvement in The Group have been sentenced to more than 30 years in jail for offences similar to those that Mara pleaded guilty to last year.

Five Americans were given life, and another was sentenced to 70 years after he was also convicted of abusing a child and recording it on film. Other members of The Group, convicted in Europe, have received sentences of up to life in prison.

Mara – who was also charged with indecent treatment of a child – was sentenced to six years in jail, with a non-parole period of 32 months after pleading guilty to three counts of sending and receiving pedophile images.

It is believed to be the longest sentence given under commonwealth law for the offence, which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years for producing, possessing or supplying child pornography.

Child welfare expert Chris Goddard, who heads Monash University’s Child Abuse Prevention Research Australia, said the states and commonwealth were lenient on those who traded in pedophile material.

“Child abuse sentencing in Australia is soft in comparison with the rest of the world,” Professor Goddard said.

“The sentencing does not reflect the seriousness of the crime or the damage done.

“One of the problems is the language – we call it child pornography, which gives a sense of consent. But these offenders are hiring people to grossly exploit and commit criminal acts against children.

“We need to review the inadequate sentencing provisions.”

One other Australian, former Victorian schoolteacher Ian Wayne Tucker, 51, who was convicted as a member of The Group, was sentenced to 15months in jail.

He had more than 16,000 sexually explicit pictures and pornographic videos of young children on his computer when it was seized by police.

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

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.

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.”

FACT: HE IS UTTERLY WITHOUT REMORSE

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.

Jeffrey Brisson – BoyChat Pedophile – sentenced to 45 years – Raped 3 month old

BoyChat BabyRaper

One of two men charged last year with raping several children, including a 3-month-old girl, was sentenced today to 45 years in prison and 25 years of special parole.

Once he completes his sentence, Jeffrey Brisson, 31, will be required to register as a sex offender for life. It was among a host of parole conditions set by the judge.

Relatives of the victims did not attend the proceeding in Superior Court in New Britain.

Brisson thought the sentence was harsh because people don’t understand sexual fascination with children, his public defender, Ken Simon, said.

“This was a very difficult case. I feel sad for him because he was victim as a child and that is very typical,” Simon said.

Brisson pleaded guilty in March to seven counts of first-degree sexual assault and three of risk of injury to a child. His roommate, Harold Spurling, is on the trial list, according to court records.

Police started investigating the two men in early January 2008 after receiving an anonymous tip that pedophiles were sharing an apartment on Washington Street.

Police searched their apartment and found child pornography on their computer. They also found a 3-month-old girl in the apartment and a video of one of the suspects sexually assaulting her, police said.

Jeffrey Brisson, AKA Edward Buzzard AKA The Night Raven AKA tnraven is a longtime BoyChat member, longtime member and Co-Webmaster of Common Ground and a LifeLine volunteer. He has lived with Aztram, another well-known BoyChat poster, for about 7 years.

The Night Raven is not especially choosy when it comes to boys or girls – he likes them both. His age of attraction is 2 – 6 for boys, and 3 – 8 for girls. However, he does admit that he is 89% a little boy lover, and 11% a little girl lover.
