Jason Garant Perkins Child Porn Addict Teacher – wife gives up children for him

“How do you choose?” his wife whined
as she gave up her children to stay with a pedophile


A 39-year-old former middle school teacher will spend 20 days in jail and five years on probation after pleading guilty today to 10 counts of second-degree exploitation of a minor.

Jason Garant Perkins gave an emotional confession of his sexual addiction after a prosecutor described nearly 200 images of child erotica and pornography found on his computer. The images included video of minors engaged in sex.

“I soothed myself it was only a fantasy world,” Perkins said, adding that he has since joined Sex Addicts Anonymous and a 12-step program called Celebrate Recovery. His computer is filtered for sexual content, and he spends only about 15 minutes a day out of the company of his wife, employer or customers at the store where he now works.

Perkins, of Morrisville, taught social studies at Woods Charter School in Chapel Hill until abruptly resigning just before charges were filed in April.

His wife, Kelly, spoke tearfully of losing friends, selling nearly all their possessions to pay bills and, worst, having to send her 13-year-old son to live with his biological father out of state while the case progressed.

“How do you choose?” she asked. “How do you break your own heart in half?”

Perkins received a 16- to 20-month suspended prison term and imposed 60 months of supervised probation so that he can complete lengthy recovery programs. Perkins must also serve 20 days of active time on weekends.

Further, Perkins must register as a sex offender, submit to random computer searches and complete the state’s sex offender control program. He will be allowed to be with his own two children and stepson.

Jeremy Houston – former teacher and filthy whining pedophile

Former teacher Jeremy Houston will appeal his conviction on two child pornography charges at a hearing in Regina on Monday.

The 53-year-old is expected to present arguments to the Court of Appeal on his own behalf, rather than through a lawyer.

According to a notice of appeal he filed with the province’s highest court less than a week after his conviction in April, Houston contends that the images found in his possession in 2005 “were stamped with URLs of legitimate adult websites, each having disclaimers that the models depicted are over 18 years of age.”

In addition, “one image of the seventeen year old girl show(s) the upper cleavage of her breast only, with no nipple exposed,” the appeal notice states.

Saskatoon Court of Queen’s Bench Justice Grant Currie ruled during Houston’s trial that breasts are sexual organs.

“All dictionary definitions however state that the breast is not a sexual organ, any more than a buttock is,” Houston wrote in the appeal document.

Houston was also convicted of accessing child pornography on the Internet, in connection with a fictional story written by his older brother, Simon Houston, which had been posted to a website for a group called the North American Man Girl Love Association (NAMGLA).

The two brothers were active members of the NAMGLA website’s bulletin board. Simon Houston, 55, is currently serving a 15-month jail sentence, after pleading guilty in January to a charge of distributing child pornography.

Jeremy Houston came under police scrutiny in 2005 while officers were investigating his brother. Records on his computer showed he had visited the NAMGLA website about 200 times, while Simon logged on more than 1,000 times, posting stories about sex with infants and pre-teens.

The website, based in the United States, was shut down by the FBI in conjunction with several arrests — including multiple counts of child molestation against a California man — in 2006.

Simon Houston testified against his brother at his trial, telling court they shared a sexual interest in children and that Jeremy had printed pictures of naked pre-teen girls from the Internet and given them to him in a brown envelope, encouraging him to keep writing stories about the subject.

During his testimony, Simon Houston said he feels sex between adults and children is acceptable — a view Currie described as “distorted and repugnant.”

Jeremy Houston, a married father of three, taught at a school in Nipawin until shortly after his arrest in 2005.

Regarding the charge of accessing the pornographic story written by his brother, Houston’s notice of appeal cites his Charter right to freedom of expression.

“The accused did not read the entire story,” it adds. “Only the first half was read. He avoided all other stories written by Simon Houston, as proven by the fact no comments were posted.”

At a hearing in April, Jeremy Houston received an 18-month conditional sentence followed by three years of probation.

During both terms, he is confined to his home except for medical emergencies, religious purposes, or with the consent of a supervisor, and he is also banned from using a computer or the Internet.

Stanley Swartz Appel – Pervs on sexually assaulted children while wife whines about the disruption to their lives

“I think this is horrible,” she said of her husband being accused.
“This is going to destroy so many lives.”
………….Shirley Appel


A Maggie Valley man accused of possessing and trading images of child pornography remains in jail under $ 250,000 bond and faces nearly two dozen charges resulting from a wide-spanning investigation that has netted 16 arrests throughout the United States and one in Italy.

var ran_number=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);advert = ‘advert’ + ran_number;show(advert);
Detectives executed a search warrant at the home of 69-year-old Stanley Swartz Appel, late Wednesday afternoon and seized one laptop, three desktop computers and 34 floppy discs. The discs contained numerous images of children aged 5- to 15 years engaging in sexual activity, Det. Archie Shuler, Maggie Valley Police Department said. None of the victims appear to be local children.

Appel, also known as Appelbaum, was charged that evening with 15 counts of second-degree sexual exploitation of a minor based on allegations he traded the pornographic images using an online peer-to-peer file sharing site, hello.com. That site has since been shut down.

switch (VarBucketNo){ case 1: show(‘voip-text’); break; case 4: case 5: //call center show(‘crm-text’); break; default: num = ‘num’ + ran_number; show(num);}
For being found in possession of the images, Appel also faces eight counts of third-degree sexual exploitation of a minor.

There is no evidence to suggest that Appel was producing the photos, only possessing and trading them, Shuler said.

“I personally feel he just got caught up in the Internet and it led to bad things for him,” said Shuler.

Appel’s wife, Shirley, said she knew nothing about her husband’s alleged involvement with child pornography and maintains he is innocent.

“Of course, he is innocent,” she said, later adding “I am in the dark myself. I knew nothing except this is a man who has never committed a crime in his life. I can’t fathom him doing anything like this.”

Shuler’s investigation into Appel’s involvement stems from a case that originated in Montgomery County, Penn. To date, 16 individuals have been arrested throughout the United States and one in Italy on similar charges resulting from the investigation.

While investigating the Internet activity of a Montgomery County man, Brian Keith Benner, who was later convicted of crimes related to child porn, the Internet Crimes Against Children task force learned that some images on Benner’s computer came from an IP address which they traced to Appel’s computer.

Shuler said he was contacted by Det. Mary Anders, with the Montgomery County district attorney’s office, two to three weeks ago alerting him of that discovery.

Benner’s conviction led authorities to other e-mail addresses relating to individuals who were trading child porn with him, Shuler said. They collected a list of all IP addresses and Internet accounts (believed to have been involved) and started approaching law enforcement officers in those jurisdictions.

Based on that information, Shuler obtained a warrant to search Appel’s home, which is within view of the Maggie police department.

Shirley Appel said Thursday she was shocked and stunned to learn of the allegations against her husband, which she believes are unfounded.

” I think this is horrible,” she said of her husband being accused. “This is going to destroy so many lives.”

The charges against Appel, who works for a local electrical supply company, relate to images contained on the floppy discs which Shuler seized from his home.

Three computers were also seized, which have been sent to U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement for forensic examination. Based on those findings, additional charges may be forthcoming, Shuler said.

Det. Ryan Singleton, Waynesville Police Department, who has worked numerous child porn cases in the past is assisting Shuler with the investigation.

In Shuler’s three years working as a detective for the Maggie department, “this is the first child porn case I’ve worked,” he said. “Hopefully it will send a message out.”

Leslie West – Repeat Sex Offender – Disgusting, Perverted, dirty old man

“You are a danger to young girls because you won’t control yourself.”

you denied being a dirty old man but that’s exactly what you are – a disgusting, perverted, dirty old man.

A SERIAL sex offender who preyed on young girls has been jailed for 20 years.

Leslie West, 64, was locked up after being convicted of 15 sexual offences against children, including two counts of rape.

He was led from the dock at Southampton Crown Court with the words of Judge John Boggis QC ringing in his ears.

The judge told him: “At your trial you denied being a dirty old man but that’s exactly what you are – a disgusting, perverted, dirty old man.

“You are a danger to young girls because you won’t control yourself.”

The court heard that West, of Bracklesham Way, Sholing, Southampton, committed two sets of offences that were separated by a gap of 30 years.

Megan Topliss, for West, said the defendant was suffering from a raft of serious health problems, including angina and emphysema, but knew a prison sentence was inevitable.

She added: “My client recognises that a term of imprisonment is the only possible sentence and that it will be a long one.

“He was a man of previous good character.

Beyond that there is little I can say in the light of the jury’s verdicts.”

Miss Topliss said West was remanded in custody following his conviction last month and had begun to experience panic attacks.

She added: “He has become very depressed and is receiving medication.”

Sentencing West, Judge Boggis told him: “I’ve taken into account your age, the fact that you’re not a well man and the effect of a prison sentence on a person of your age.”

The defendant was jailed for ten years for each of the rapes. The two terms will run concurrently.

He was also handed prison sentences for the other 13 offences, which included indecency, sexual assault and causing a child to engage in sexual activity, and was jailed for a total of 20 years.

Roger M. Smith – 30 year sentence for doping little girls and sexually assaulting them – with the help of their mother

Smith, overcome by tears, had his attorney, William Jones, read Crabb a letter in which he apologized for what he’d done and begged for mercy for Wheaton.

“Because of what I did, I lost everything I loved and cared for,” the letter said. “My prison is within me in my head and heart.”

An Iowa County man was sentenced Friday in federal court to 30 years in prison in connection with having sex with twin 6-old year old girls while their mother photographed them.

Roger M. Smith, 37, of the town of Hollandale, later distributed some of the photos in Internet chat rooms. He pleaded guilty earlier this year to making and possessing child pornography.

In court on Friday, Smith was emotionally unable to read a prepared statement and handed it to his attorney William Jones who said Smith was sorry for causing co-defendant Carrie Wheaton, 30, of central Illinois, to lose her two girls and newborn son to child protection services.

Wheaton was pregnant when she pleaded guilty to similar charges in July, but it wasn’t made clear in court if Wheaton, who is to be sentenced on Sept. 23, has given birth.

Jones continued Smith’s statement saying Smith regretted not getting the help he needed for his problem and asked District Judge Barbara Crabb to impose the minimum sentence on Wheaton.

Jones asked Crabb for the 15-year minimum sentence saying federal guidelines contemplate worst conduct for the maximum punishment of 30 years then having sexual contact with sleeping girls. Jones also said Smith was cooperative with authorities and remorseful.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim O’Shea asked Crabb to impose 30 years saying the photos of Smith and the girls taken in November and February weren’t isolated incidents as Smith previously sought out young women with small children.

Wheaton was “vulnerable, pliable,” and with two small children, a person Smith could use “as sexual objects,” O’Shea told Crabb.

Crabb agreed that Smith deserved the 30-year statutory maximum penalty couple with lifetime probation for his crime.

“For most of us it’s the worst thing we can imagine,” she said.

Because the girls were drowsy or asleep while Smith had sexual contact with them, they “probably never knew what happened, due to the cough syrup (Wheaton gave them) but someday they will know,” she said.

Instead of being a guardian or protector of the girls’, Smith exploited them for his own desires, which might cause the girls to never trust authority figures, said Crabb.

After court, O’Shea declined to say if he would recommend the maximum sentence for Wheaton.

Smith’s home was searched after state authorities obtained a search warrant after Smith was investigated for exposing a child to sexual activity over the Internet.

During a Feb. 28 search, 23 images of the girls engaged in sexually explicit activity were found on a memory card recovered from Smith’s bedroom. A second memory card with an unspecified number of sexually explicit photos apparently taken on Feb. 2 also was recovered from Smith’s bedroom on Feb. 28. All the photos were taken at Wheaton’s Illinois home and then transported to Wisconsin, said O’Shea.
