Brian Letiecq – Repeat Sex Offender – Trail Pervert


PORTLAND, Ore. — Portland police cited a man on suspicion of disorderly conduct after officers received reports Thursday he was inappropriately touching himself on the Springwater Trail near OMSI.

At around 6 p.m., a passer-by called 911 and said the man, later identified as registered sex offender Brian Letiecq, was pleasuring himself on the trail. Officers responded and then cited and released him.

Police said they could not arrest Letiecq on more serious charges because there were no victims in the area to confirm the caller’s claims. Although court records show he’s a registered sex offender, police said suspicion of disorderly conduct was not enough to book him into jail.

It’s called Exhibitionism

Letiecq could not be reached for comment Friday. He is listed in the national sex offender database, but Multnomah County Parole and Probations said he’s not under their supervision. As a result, he’s left to roam free.

“I think he should be put away,” said Steve Mason, who was using the trail Friday. “That’s something that you don’t do in public. If you’re going to do it, you do it behind closed doors.”

Julie Strongston, who also uses the Springwater Trail, said jail likely won’t be the answer anyway. But she does believe Letiecq should be monitored so he can get help if he needs it.

“I’m not saying it’s good what he’s doing, but I think that just arresting him is not going to get him not do it again,” Strongston said. “I think he actually needs to get psychological help.”

They do it again because that’s what they are. Nothing will change them. Not jail, not “therapy”. Stop trying to change them and throw away the key.

Parole and probations officials declined to comment on the specific case. However, they said a common reason registered sex offenders in the county won’t be under their supervision is because they committed their crime so long ago that they have maxed out their supervision.

Antoine Louis Johnson – MySpace Predator Busted


Gwinnett County police say a 26-year-old man posed as a teenage girl on the Web site MySpace.com to lure a 13-year-old boy for sex.

Antoine Louis Johnson is being held in the Gwinnett County Detention Center without bond. Johnson was arrested Friday and charged with aggravated child molestation and child molestation.

Authorities said the boy told a guardian early last week that he had been molested in June 2008.

The boy said he met a girl on the social networking site who promised sex if he would allow her brother to perform sexual acts on him, according to police.

Johnson picked up the boy near the entrance of his neighborhood and took him to a nearby vacant house for sex, authorities said.

Police learned that Johnson contacted a friend of the boy and sought a meeting, again pretending to be a 16-year-old girl.

Johnson arranged a meeting Friday with the boy and his friend at the intersection of Indian Shoals Road and Biltmore Oaks Drive, police said. Investigators approached Johnson and took him into custody.

Additional charges are pending, police said.

Police are asking any other potential victims to come forward.

Richard Raymond Babinski, unrepentant rapist and murderer – Psychopathic Propaganda Terrorist – ENABLED by WARDEN

Here’s a keynote speaker for the next meeting of your earnest community group: Richard Raymond Babinski, unrepentant rapist and murderer.

A National Parole Board hearing for Babinski, who raped and killed 27-year-old Windsor native Eva Marie Mead in 1988, was shocked to learn recently that he has been speaking to community groups.

Babinski, a lifer at Pittsburgh Institution near Kingston, plans to speak at schools, too, he told the hearing, all the while blithely denying or saying he couldn’t remember sexually assaulting and strangling Mead.

Let’s look at the gruesome details of this case.

Babinski broke into Mead’s apartment in Toronto and sexually assaulted her at gunpoint, in front of her son, Jeremy. He was only six. He still remembers the gun pointed at his head, Babinski’s face, even what Babinski was wearing.

Three days later, Mead was supposed to take Jeremy to hockey practice when she returned home from her job as a stenographer and customer relations officer at the Bank of Nova Scotia. But she never came home. Jeremy, now 27 and living in Windsor, also remembers that long night.

Babinski, a 28-year-old maintenance mechanic from near North Bay, abducted Mead when she left the bank. Her naked, skeletal remains were found seven months later in a marshy field behind a factory where Babinski worked. Her ankles and one arm were bound with black wire. She had been raped again and strangled so violently that her larynx was broken.

Babinski, who had been charged after breaking into Mead’s apartment and already had a long criminal record, had been out on bail.

Jeremy, whose father had died 18 months earlier from a reaction to a prescription drug, was left an orphan, to be raised by his grandmother and uncle.

Tried three times for first-degree murder, Babinski, who had lived in the same apartment building as Mead and had stalked her for months, was eventually convicted of second-degree murder. One of the judges called it a cold-blooded, brutal and heinous crime.

Now 49, behind bars for more than 20 years, his appeals exhausted, no one fighting an alleged wrongful conviction for him, Babinski still doesn’t admit he killed Mead. Over and over at his parole hearing in Kingston, says Heidi Illingworth, executive director of the Canadian Resource Centre for Victims of Crime, Babinski either denied or claimed he couldn’t recall abducting, raping or killing Mead.

Is this the kind of person you want speaking to your community group?

He told the parole board he has spoken to 300 or 400 people at Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. These meetings are filled with vulnerable people.

He also attends AA conferences and native powwows and cultural events.

And he plans to speak to schools. Can you imagine? “Hello boys and girls. My name is Richard Babinski…”

What does he tell people?

He’s probably not telling them he raped a mother in front of her young son, that he held a gun to the little boy’s head. He’s probably not telling them he abducted, raped and murdered the young widow and dumped her body in the reeds, leaving her son an orphan.

It can’t be one of those sobering I-turned-my-life-around speeches because he doesn’t even admit he did it.

Who made the inane decision to allow Babinski to speak to community groups? Wardens can grant escorted temporary passes, but acting warden Cathy Gelineau wouldn’t discuss the Babinski case because of the privacy law. She wouldn’t say what other groups Babinski might be addressing or what he’s telling them.

The Canadian Resource Centre for Victims of Crime wants to know.

“It’s very concerning to us,” said Illingworth. “We want to know what he’s saying when he goes out. Why is this man permitted to go out and speak to vulnerable people?”

“We find it very offensive that an offender who accepts no responsibility for his actions is allowed to speak in public forums,” she wrote in a letter to Pittsburgh warden Lynne VanDalen this week. “Our agency firmly believes that given the nature of Mr. Babinski’s crimes, he should not be given the opportunity to negatively impact any more lives.”

Jeremy never even knew Babinski was speaking to the public. Next time your group arranges for a speaker, better check references.

The parole board denied Babinski’s request for three-day unescorted passes. Somebody should scuttle the speeches, too.

Concetta Jackson – Pedophile Enabler – Bail Revoked

While teenage victims wept in relief, a judge revoked bail Monday for a baby sitter who admits she helped her sexual-predator ex-boyfriend molest and film her young charges.

Concetta Jackson, 46, faces 15 to 30 years in prison in what the judge once called a “sociopathic” case of child pornography.

Jackson and another woman helped procure children as young as 3 months old for John Jackey Worman, whose computers held more than 1 million images of child pornography when federal agents arrested him in 2006. Jackson pleaded guilty to one count of manufacturing child pornography while Worman and Dorothy Prawdzik were convicted of multiple child pornography counts at trial.

Worman is awaiting sentencing in the federal pornography case and faces a state trial for the alleged assaults on at least 12 children. Prawdzik is serving a 30-year federal term.

Jackson’s sentencing was delayed Monday so she could be tested for possible brain disorders and other health problems.

Jackson, in exchange for rent money, let Worman install a video camera in her bathroom in Collingdale that let him videotape children as they undressed and left infant girls in his care knowing he would abuse them, prosecutors said.

Jackson had been on home confinement since her September plea, with permission to leave home to shop or see doctors. U.S. District Judge Lawrence F. Stengel revoked her bail amid complaints from victims who ran into her and concerns about Jackson’s housing situation, finances and mental health.

Kenneth Sodomsky – Whining Pedophile – Supreme Court let’s case go forward

The Supreme Court won’t stop Pennsylvania officials from prosecuting a man whose computer was found to contain child pornography while it was at Circuit City being upgraded.

Kenneth Sodomsky wants the high court to suppress the videos found on his computer, which he had taken into a Circuit City in Wyomissing, Penn., to get a DVD burner installed into it. While the computer was in the store, a worker looked through some of the files and found movie files with “questionable” names referring to boys of various ages. The worker then found a video of a hand reaching toward a penis and called the police.

Police seized the computer, obtained a warrant and found child pornography. Sodomsky moved to suppress the discovery, saying the Circuit City employees had no right to search his computer and show any of its contents to police.

A trial judge agreed, but a state appellate court overturned that decision, saying Sodomsky ran the risk of his illegal files being found and viewed by taking the computer out of his house and to the store.

Circuit City Stores Inc. closed the last of its stores in March.

The case is Sodomsky v. Pennsylvania, 08-1274.

Arnold T. Ross – Juvenile Baby Raper – Raped and murdered 8 month old


The Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s office says an autopsy of an 8-month-old boy led them to arrest the boyfriend of the baby’s mother.

According to Sheriff Newell Normand, police responded to a call in the 1600 block of Gary Court in unincorporated Gretna to a call of an infant who was unresponsive.

Normand said that officers found the lifeless body of the infant, Da-Von Lonzo. The baby was taken to Ochsner Westbank, where doctors pronounced him dead at the scene.

After an autopsy showed the death to be a homicide, Normand said that police interviewed 17-year-old Arnold T. Ross, who described himself as the boyfriend of the baby’s mother.

Police say the autopsy report also noted multiple fractures throughout the body consistent with that of a beating. The child also had tears in the anus.

According to Normand, Ross initially told detectives the infant fell down the stairs while he was babysitting the child and stopped breathing.

Investigators say that a neighbor had heard loud noises coming from the apartment where the baby was later found dead.

According to Sheriff Normand: ” Ross admitted that while he was watching the infant, the child began to cry. As the crying continued, Ross confessed to beating the infant repeatedly. According to Ross, the child began to defecate on himself. Ross claims he placed his fingers inside the infant’s rectum in an attempt to clean up the child.”

Police booked Arnold Ross with one count of First Degree Murder and one count of Aggravated Rape.

Normand says Ross has a lengthy criminal history with arrests for Possession of Crack Cocaine, Possession of Marijuana, Obscenity, Battery on a Correctional Officer, 3 counts of Battery on a School Teacher, 3 counts of Theft, Illegal Carrying of a Weapon and Assault.

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.

Teresa Pearce – Receives 30 years for Enabling Pedophile Husband


A Lawton woman was convicted Tuesday in Stephens County District Court on two charges of enabling child sexual abuse.

Teresa Pearce, 37, will serve 30 years in prison and pay a $1,000 fine for each sentence.

Pearce pleaded guilty to the charges on April 13. On Tuesday, the matter was heard before District Judge Joe Enos for sentencing.

When Pearce pleaded guilty, she said that she knew her husband, Kevin Pearce, was having sex with minors, Assistant District Attorney Josh Creekmore said.

Pearce’s husband remains in custody on a $100,000 bond. His next day in court is scheduled for July 7.

“It doesn’t matter whether he is or is not convicted,” Creekmore said about Pearce being convicted before her husband. “When she pleaded guilty, she said she knew the two girls were pregnant.”

Pearce and her husband were arrested in May of 2008 after law enforcement became aware of the situation and investigated it.

Creekmore said that the Department of Human Services (DHS) was involved in a child welfare investigation for one of the minors and turned the investigation over to law enforcement as more information was discovered.

According to the affidavit prepared by then-Stephens County Deputy Rodney Richards, DHS was trying to find out who the fathers of the babies were when law enforcement took over.

According to the affidavit, one of the girls alleged Pearce had impregnated her.

According to the affidavit, Pearce said she knew other adult men had been having sex with the two girls over the course of several years and had never reported the matter to law enforcement or anyone else.

Paedophile Raymond Hewlett has issued a brazen demand

Paedophile Raymond Hewlett has issued a brazen demand to be paid thousands of pounds to answer questions about the night Madeleine McCann went missing.

The child molester refused to speak to detectives hired by Kate and Gerry McCann unless they gave him a vast slice of the Madeleine Fund.

Hewlett, 62, who has a lifelong history of sexually abusing little girls, was in the Algarve when the three-year-old was snatched from her bed.

He is now in hospital in Germany recovering from throat cancer surgery, and has so far rebuffed efforts by the McCanns’ investigators to interview him.

A source close to the McCanns told the Mail: ‘He is actually demanding a fee to answer questions that could help the inquiry. It is truly reprehensible. There is no way anyone is going to pay him.’

Convicted paedophile Hewlett is also wanted for questioning by West Yorkshire police over an unsolved indecent assault on an eight-year-old in 1975.

Hewlett will have little choice over speaking to the police, but the McCanns’ private investigators have no powers to compel him to answer their questions.

The McCanns’ spokesman Clarence Mitchell said: ‘We still need to speak to Mr Hewlett who remains a person of interest to the inquiry. We are confident that we will be able to speak to him in the near future, and we hope that he and his legal representative will see the sense in clearing his name.’

But as of this afternoon, Hewlett was still remaining firm on his repulsive demand. He has strenuously denied having anything to do with Madeleine’s disappearance.

A friend of the McCanns said: ‘It has been made abundantly clear to Hewlett that he is not going to get a penny from the Madeleine Fund. It would be like asking the victims to pay.

‘He is saying he wants money to look after his kids if he dies, but no one is going to touch him with a bargepole. He should be more worried about being eliminated from the inquiry. If he truly has nothing to hide, he should be happy to come out and say it. He ought to be grateful that the detectives are willing to speak to him with a view to crossing him off their list of possible suspects.’

Two ex-policemen, former detective inspector Dave Edgar and former detective sergeant Arthur Cowley, are now in charge of the Madeleine hunt. They were hired by the McCanns after Spanish agency Metodo 3 failed to find any trace of their daughter.

Last week, the British detectives flew to Aachen in Germany to try to speak to Hewlett in hospital, but he rebuffed them.

Although he later changed his mind, they had already returned home empty-handed by then.

Former soldier Hewlett’s German wife Marianna Schmuker initially agreed to help the investigators, but she has now enlisted a local lawyer on his behalf to ‘negotiate’ a fee for access.

Hewlett is one of 38 paedophiles known to have been – or still be – in the Algarve when Madeleine vanished from her holiday apartment in Praia da Luz on May 3, 2007.

The McCanns’ detectives are building profiles on each of them and are understood to regard four or five of them as being particularly significant.

They are also examining possible links with seven other sex attacks on tourist children in which a paedophile has broken into a holiday apartment on the Algarve, over the past four years. Two of these attacks happened since Madeleine went missing. The investigators are convinced the answer to the Madeleine riddle lies close to where she disappeared.

Hewlett was an hour’s drive up the coast in May 2007, living on a campsite with his wife and six children in a blue Dodge truck, which detectives would still like to trace. He later moved the family to a camp ground in Morocco.
