Carla Maldonado – Bestiality is not a crime – Sex Acts with children ARE


Shock was the only word that came to mind when Flagler Humane Society’s director received a compact disc with photos, some showing a woman having sex with a teenage girl and in others, the woman having sex with a dog.

Carla Maldonado, 40, a Flagler Humane Society employee at the time, and her husband, David Maldonado, 42, of Palm Coast were charged Tuesday in the acts against the girl, which investigators say occurred four years ago.

The Humane Society fired Carla Maldonado but has no recourse to protect the dog she adopted from the shelter.

Director Donna Howard received the CD late in the day on Nov. 6 from an anonymous a person who had access to the Maldonados’ home computer and copied the images from it, investigators said. Howard fired Carla Maldonado — a veterinarian technician and nine-year employee of the shelter — the next day. Howard then turned the pictures over to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office.

“We’re a pretty close-knit group here,” Howard said Wednesday of her staff of 16. “We had no inkling this was coming.”

The CD contained 16 pictures of Carla Maldonado with the girl, who was 15 years old then, according to a sheriff’s report. There were also 27 images of Carla Maldonado in sex acts with her German shepherd, the report states.

Carla Maldonado never denied to Howard doing any of the things photographed, the report states. Howard said the employee told her it, “happened on one drunken night,” according to the report.

Sexual acts with the girl occurred Feb. 2, 2005, the report states.

David Maldonado was the photographer, according to investigators. He and Carla (Jones) Maldonado were married April 20, court records show.

Both provided the teenager alcohol and encouraged her participation, according to investigators. Now 19, the young woman has been interviewed by investigators and confirmed she was the person in the pictures.

But the dates on the images indicate sex with the dog took place over a period of months, Howard said.

“She referred to it as a joke,” Howard said.

Carla Maldonado had no prior arrest record, but David Maldonado has convictions for misdemeanor battery and contempt of court.

They were charged with lewd and lascivious battery and contributing to the deliquency of a minor. The couple were taken Wednesday to the Flagler County Inmate Facility. He was released on $15,000 bail and she was released on $10,000 bail. The couple could not be reached for comment.

The German shepherd and two other dogs owned by the Maldonados and adopted from the Flagler Humane Society have not been confiscated.

“There are no laws against (bestiality in Florida),” Howard said. “We can’t take the dogs back. We need to write our legislators and other powers that be — the mayor, the City Council, anybody who will listen.”

Sexual abuse of animals is not permitted in 34 states, but bestiality is legal in Florida. A proposal to outlaw sexual activity involving animals was unanimously approved by the state Sentate’s Justice Committee during the past year’s session but did not make it through the full Florida Legislature.

Animal cruelty charges were not filed against the couple.

“Animal cruelty (is charged) if the animal was injured or under duress,” said Flagler County sheriff’s spokeswoman Debra Johnson.

John Edward Chrisman Jr – Repeat Sex Offender – AGAIN


A twice-convicted child molester was arrested again Friday, accused of living too close to a westside youth facility.

John Edward Chrisman Jr. — who was most recently released from prison in September 2006 — is also under investigation for allegedly making sexual advances to children at White’s Mobile Park.

Chrisman, 49, and roommate James M. Burnette, 66 — also released from prison in 2006 after serving time for a molesting conviction — are each accused of violating a state law that prohibits sex offenders from living within 1,000 feet of a school or youth facility.

The mobile home park, at 3900 W. Kilgore Ave., is just west of the Youth Opportunity Center.

Muncie police Lt. Al Williams said police were investigating reports of a man preying on children in the area when they found the two convicted molesters living together in an apartment attached to the trailer park’s office.

Chrisman was not immediately charged with any charges stemming from those allegations. Investigators on Friday afternoon were continuing to talk to witnesses and others.

“There are varying accounts of what happened,” Williams said.

Then-Delaware Circuit Court Judge Steven Caldemeyer handed Chrisman a maximum eight-year prison term in January 1999 after Chrisman was convicted of sexually abusing a five-year-old girl in his south Muncie apartment.

That victim, whose family did not have a television, said Chrisman warned her that if she told anyone about their activities, she would no longer be allowed to watch TV in his apartment.

At the time of his 1998 arrest in Delaware County, Chrisman was on probation for a child-molesting conviction in Randolph County.

In January 1992, Chrisman, then of Union City, was accused of sexually abusing a five-year-old Randolph County girl. That charge was dismissed, despite a graphic confession from Chrisman, after the victim’s mother said she did not want her child subjected to testifying in court.

A few months after the case was dropped, the victim’s mother married Chrisman.

In 1993, Chrisman was charged with molesting the same girl. The 1992 charge was re-filed, and Chrisman pleaded guilty to both Class C felonies.

In April 1994, then-Randolph Circuit Court Judge Jan Chalfant gave Chrisman two eight-year prison terms, but the judge suspended one of the sentences.

Chrisman was released from prison in June 1997 after serving four years.

Burnette, formerly of Anderson, was sentenced to 10 years in prison in 1999 after he was convicted of child molesting in Marshall County in northern Indiana.

David Harrison – Repeat Sex Offender – Rapes again within days of release

A violent sex attacker who warned he would strike again
raped a woman just days after being released from prison.

While serving a prison sentence for rape David Harrison, 45, had told probation officers there was a ‘nine of of ten’ chance he would strike again.

Despite his shocking threats prison authorities were powerless to hold him and Harrison was released on licence after serving two thirds of a 14-year sentence.

Just one week later he carried out a horrific sex attack on a woman, raping her and plunging a knife into her neck before leaving her for dead.

Yesterday he was beginning a minimum 20 year sentence after being convicted of rape at Bradford Crown Court.

The jury heard Harrison was a serial criminal with a history of violent sex attacks stretching back almost 30 years and was first convicted or rape in 1979.

Three years later he was jailed for biting the cheek of a woman as he indecently assaulted her, and in 1987 he assaulted a 19-year-old woman with a knife.

In May 1993 he was convicted of having unlawful sex with a girl aged 12 and causing her actual bodily harm.

Released in late 1995 he attacked and raped a woman in Leeds it was in March 1996 and was jailed for 14 years.

He was refused parole but the authorities had to release him once he had served two thirds of the 14-year sentence.

He was released in 2005, but briefly recalled in 2006 for a misdemeanor.

Just one week after his release in August 2006 Harrison lured a mother-of-three to the basement of a derelict pub where he cut off her underwear, raped her before leaving her for dead after stabbing her in the neck.

The woman, a prostitue, told the court she believed she was going to die and had pleaded with him as he plunged the knife into her neck.
Enlarge Horrific injuries

Harrison left the scene and walked down the road where he was recognised by another prostitute, who said she saw him wiping blood from his hand.

The 33-year-old victim survived only thanks to swift help from passers-by and the skill of the surgeons at Bradford General Infirmary, West Yorks.

Jailing Harrison for a minimum of 20 years – possibly extending to life – on Thursday, Judge James Stewart QC said: ‘It is in my firm opinion that as things stand David Harrison should never be released from prison.

‘He is an extremely dangerous sexual predator who is aroused not only by rape but by extreme violence used at the time of rape. I do not need a psychiatrist to tell me this man is highly dangerous, it stares me in the face.’

New legislation introduced in 2003 allows judges the power to pass indeterminate sentences to offenders and his sentence could be extended to life.

After sentencing the victim, who is now trying to turn her life around, said: ‘He is a sick monster. I’m glad this is finally over.

‘I’ve had sleepless nights and nightmares thinking about what that man did to me. Now knowing he is locked up hopefully for the rest of his life I can finally get on with my life.’

Detective Constable Andrew Doody of West Yorkshire Police said: ‘We are delighted with the outcome of the trial and the jury’s decision.

Child molester sentenced

A Mount Prospect man who admitted to repeatedly molesting a female relative has earned 14 years behind bars. Ronald Sampson, 25, formerly of 413 E. Lincoln St., has been sentenced to two consecutive seven-year terms after pleading guilty in October to two counts of predatory criminal sexual assault. The felonies could have put him behind bars for as many as 60 years. Cook County Judge John Scotillo handed down the sentence. Sampson was accused of molesting a female relative over an 11-year period, from 1995 to 2006. The victim was 6 years old when the abuse began, and Sampson was 14, prosecutors have said. He was arrested in July 2006 after he impregnated the girl. Sampson originally faced more than 75 counts of various sex charges in connection with the crime. The rest of those counts were dropped in exchange for his guilty plea.

Predator rapes Camden girl, 14

A 14-year-old Camden girl was abducted and sexually assaulted on Wednesday night, the fourth such incident in the city in less than three months.

Capt. Joseph Bowen of the Camden County Prosecutor’s Office said only that the girl was sexually assaulted in East Camden.

“It’s top priority right now for us and for the Camden Police Department,” Bowen said Saturday.

Hermes Perez Jr. said that about 9 p.m., he spotted the victim running down Garden Avenue, near Highland Avenue, naked and in tears.

Perez, who lives in that neighborhood on the Camden-Pennsauken border, said the victim told him she was abducted from another part of Camden then sexually assaulted.

“I ran after her and said, “What’s going on?’ And she said, ‘I was raped,’ ” Perez said. “We brought her in, I had my wife clothe her and we called the police.”

It is unclear if Wednesday’s incident is related to three other attacks on girls since October.

A dark minivan has been present at each of the previous three incidents, police said.

The first attack occurred about 1:20 p.m. Oct. 16 at 8th and Everett streets, when a 14-year-old girl escaped the suspect near Sumner Elementary School.

The second attack occurred about 7 p.m. Nov. 11 in the 1900 block of Mulford Street. A 14-year-old girl was grabbed near Cream Elementary School about 7 p.m. and the suspect took her to the 1800 block of Mulford Street, where he sexually assaulted her in a yard, police said.

The third incident happened about 5:30 p.m. Dec. 11 on Hayes Avenue between 32nd and 36th streets. The suspect attempted to pull an 11-year-old girl into his van, but she escaped.

The victims’ descriptions of the suspect vary widely so no sketch or description was available.
