Man was convicted of raping and sodomizing a 6-month-old boy and fracturing the baby's skull
nepanews.com ^ | Saturday 31 January, 2004 | The Associated Press

Posted on 01/31/2004 6:05:00 PM PST by Federalist 78

Ryan McAfee, 19, of Johnstown, was convicted Wednesday by a Cambria County jury of rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and related offenses. He faces at least five years in prison and possibly more than 70 years at his scheduled Feb. 10 sentencing.

The assault happened a year ago. McAfee isn't related to the baby but knew the child's 19-year-old mother, who wasn't charged.

McAfee did not testify, but as he was led from the courtroom he denied assaulting the child. Police said that at one point, McAfee told police, "I did it," but then denied doing so. McAfee did admit that he may have gotten a "little rough" while bathing the child.

Defense attorney John Kasaback said the jury acted on sympathy for the child, rather than evidence. Someone else could have assaulted the child when McAfee and the boy's mother left the home to buy drugs, he said.

The child's family said the boy is now 18 months old and has recovered from his physical injuries. The child is in the care of the county's Children and Youth Services.

Speak Out on Rose Parade's Cheapening of Family
2005 'Celebrate Family' event will feature homosexuals with children.
Next year's edition of the Tournament of Roses Parade will carry a theme of "Celebrate Family" - but the parade president's idea of celebration is out of step with most of America.
David Davis, who just assumed the president's post, told reporters the event will welcome all definitions of family, including homosexual couples with children.
"I'm not going to judge anybody's lifestyles," he said. "We don't have any prejudice or bias."

Pedophiles & Homosexuals For Total Sexual Liberation

In August, 2003, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) filed a lawsuit against the state of Kansas over the state's criminal sodomy law involving children. The ACLU is defending Matthew Limon, a homosexual who committed sodomy against a 14-year-old boy in 2000. At the time of his crime, Simon was 18 years old. The ACLU is claiming that Limon's conviction is unconstitutionally discriminatory because the penalties for sodomy with a minor are different than for heterosexual sex with a minor.

Family Research Report - Feb 2003

Contrary to the claims of homosexual activists, history seems to have repeated itself. The past 14 years give every indication that those who engage in homosexuality are still disproportionately involved in the rapes and murders of children. Likewise, the few instances of mutilation also implicated homosexuals. The historical record disproportionately implicating homosexuals in the rape, torture, and murder of children appears to be in harmony with more recent events.

Wow, what an excellent defense.

"Some other scumbag could have raped the baby, because the baby's scumbag mom was out scoring drugs with her scumbag boyfriend.

Let's not judge people for their sexual preferences. After all, God would not have created them if he didn't want them to do these things. (gag)

I have heard that in some parts of Africa, adults believe that raping a young child or baby will stop them from getting AIDS.

This guy will become some prisoner's girlfriend REAL quick. Or prison justice will make short work of him.

Here is a case in Humboldt County . The DA is already facing a recall election in March for his soft on crime attitude. He was elected 14 months ago.


Eureka Times-Standard


Plea bargain made with molester
By Chris Durant The Times-Standard

Friday, January 23, 2004 -

EUREKA -- The Humboldt County District Attorney's Office has reached an agreement with the Ferndale man who continually molested a child over the course of six or seven years.

Pedro Martinez-Hernandez, 39, entered a guilty plea Jan. 6 to one count of continuous sexual abuse of a child.

Humboldt County District Attorney Paul Gallegos prosecuted the case.

The Humboldt County Sheriff's Department said investigating deputies determined there were 1,900 counts of sexual intercourse against the minor and another 1,000 counts of similar instances, like oral copulation and fondling.

"We could charge the one count over and over again or we could charge the continuous act charge," Gallegos said.

Gallegos said the maximum prison sentence Martinez-Hernandez could receive is 16 years.

The California Penal Code states that one count of lewd or lascivious acts with a child carries a maximum penalty of eight years.

It is not uncommon for the District Attorney's Office to make plea agreements. Two high-profile cases recently reached an agreement just before they went to trial.

Humboldt County Superior Court documents indicate defendants in similar cases were sentenced to much longer prison terms.

William Frank II was arrested by the Eureka Police Department in 1999 on 34 counts of felony aggravated assault of a child under 14. In May 2000 he was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Dale Reinholtsen to 29 consecutive 15- years-to-life terms.

In 1998, Alfred Duane Albers Sr. was arrested by the Humboldt County Sheriff's Department on a count of oral copulation of a child under 14 with force and a count of lewd or lascivious acts with a child. He was arraigned on 96 counts of aggravated sexual assault of a child and in May 1999 he was sentenced by Superior Court Judge John Feeney to one term of 15-years-to-life, six terms of 15 years and two terms of eight years, all to run consecutively.

Johnny Ray Crowl was arrested by the Humboldt County Sheriff's Department in 1998 on suspicion of two counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a child and a count of felony sexual penetration with a foreign object. He was arraigned on four counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a child and four counts of aggravated sexual assault on a child. In December 1999 he was sentenced by Feeney to one count of 15-years-to-life in prison and seven 15-year terms, all to run consecutively.

In 1998, Michael John Mendez was arrested by the Fortuna Police Department on six counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a child. He was arraigned on nine counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a child, annoying or molesting a child under 18 and two counts of failing to register as a sex offender. He was sentenced by Superior Court Judge Timothy Cissna in September 1999 to seven consecutive 30-years-to-life sentences and a 12-year term.

These are a handful of similar cases obtained by the Times-Standard.

Jan. 13 this year, Mike Hiscox, 42, was sentenced to 11 consecutive 15-years-to-life sentences for molesting three boys over the course of four years. That case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Allison Jackson.

Martinez-Hernandez was arrested at his home Dec. 23. He is a relative of the victim and an illegal alien.

An arrest warrant issued for Martinez-Hernandez alleged continuous sexual abuse of a child, oral copulation with a minor, incest, possession of a false Social Security card, possession of methamphetamine and possession of marijuana.

Gallegos said the charges other than the continuous sexual abuse of a child were dropped.

Martinez-Hernandez is scheduled to be in court Feb. 3 for a probation report and possible sentencing.

involuntary deviate sexual intercourse

Huh?

Not voluntary for the victim. That is, with a victim who didn't, or couldn't, consent.

Oh yeah, that would have made the jury really sympathetic!

I don't think this guy's gonna last very long in jail. They don't treat child rapists very well in there.

I guess Mr. Davis wants us to love him because he's so open-minded. I'd love to see the viewership of the Rose Parade go in the toilet next year when people find out about this.

It is an awkward construct but made necessary because deviant sexual intercourse between consenting adult deviants is not illegal.
