Mahamu Kanneh, 23, of Rockville was charged in 2004 with the rape of a 7-year-old girl.

Kanneh was arrested in 2004 on charges of raping a 7-year-old relative and abusing another child. "There is no indication...

    A Maryland lawmaker is seeking to remove the judge who dismissed a Montgomery County case because of delays in securing an interpreter for the trial of a Liberian immigrant accused of raping and repeatedly molesting a 7-year-old girl.

    TAMPA - Monday's arrest of a Wharton High School basketball coach accused of having a sexual relationship with one of her players raises the question: How can such serious allegations take months from a parent's complaint to an arrest? The bottom line, Hillsborough County school officials say, is the school district never really investigated the claim made in March that Jaymee Lane Wallace, 28, had the relationship. Nor did the district report possible child abuse to law enforcement, said Linda Kipley, general manager of Hillsborough schools' office of professional standards. "This is very unusual," Kipley said Wednesday. "We opened an...

    Arapahoe County - Children believed Zuri-Kye Latifbay McGhee was one of them - either an elementary school student, a muscular teen who lived with his uncle or just another kid with a bicycle in the neighborhood, according to testimony Thursday by an Aurora police detective. But the children told Detective Dean Ziegler that slumber parties or afternoon gatherings with McGhee would often turn "weird," with McGhee showing pornographic videos and demanding that boys as young as 8 years old masturbate in front of him, the detective said at McGhee's preliminary hearing. Youngsters, between the ages of 8 and 16, later...

    MCMINNVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A former physical education teacher charged with having sex with a 13-year-old boy who attended the school where she worked agreed to a nine-month jail sentence in a plea deal Thursday and was immediately locked up. Pamela Rogers Turner, 28, entered a no contest plea that allowed her to avoid a scheduled November trial on multiple charges of having sexual intercourse and oral sex with the teenager during a three-month relationship that started in November. A court clerk said the nine months in jail is part of an eight-year sentence for the former homecoming queen previously...

    HARLINGEN, Texas (AP) - An ex-convict who pleaded no contest to sexually abusing his daughter was sentenced to crochet afghans as part of the community service requirement of his probation. Despite an outcry over the seemingly lenient sentence, the prosecutor in the case said he had been ready to dismiss it for lack of evidence. During a dispute over custody of the child, Norma de la Torre accused her ex-husband, Robert Wayne Thompson, of sexually abusing their 8-year-old daughter. She filed civil and criminal cases against him. -SNIP-

    Siegelman calls for tougher sex offender penalties Saturday, July 23, 2005 By NADIA MOHANDESSI Staff Reporter Former Gov. Don Siegelman called for the Alabama Legislature to toughen a sexual offender bill Friday afternoon and include mandatory castration and the death penalty for persons convicted of violent sex crimes against children under 12. "An ankle bracelet is not going to stay on if a sexual predator wants it off," Siegelman said. "The Legislature has got to get serious about protecting Alabama's children or go home." Many observers expect Siegelman to announce his intention to run for governor again, though no official...

    SAN FRANCISCO Jun 18, 2005 — Despite being arrested at least nine times for molesting boys, Dean Arthur Schwartzmiller managed to avoid lengthy prison terms, coach youth football, move in with another convicted sex offender and be named by authorities as one of the most prolific child molesters in history. Schwartzmiller's criminal record began 35 years ago, but he never registered as a sex offender and spent just 12 years in prison. In his time on the outside, police suspect he molested as many as 36,000 children in several states, Mexico and Brazil. snip
  • A Case of the Much-Too-Famous - (written BEFORE the verdict; stunning study of Michael Jackson)

    Michael Jackson is surely not sleeping well these nights. In lieu of having him take the stand at his child-molestation trial in Santa Maria, his attorneys played nearly three hours of outtakes from the infamous Martin Bashir TV documentary, in which a tipsy Jackson revealed that the way he really loves to sleep is onstage under seven spotlights, all on him. Presumably, when the spotlights dim, what's next best is getting an endless string of little boys to share his bed. The sad truth is that were Jackson any other 46-year-old man with a history of alcohol use and prescription...

    The child molestation case against Michael Jackson went to the jury Friday after the defense begged the panel to acquit the singer, portraying Jackson as a victim of grifters trying to pull "the biggest con of their careers." "They are trying to profit from Michael Jackson. They think they have pulled it off. They are just waiting for one thing — your verdict." Prosecutors painted a vastly different picture — one of Jackson as a serial child molester and his Neverland Ranch as a predator's lair. "Why would Mr. Jackson do it?" Senior Deputy District Attorney Ron Zonen said. "Because...

    TAUNTON — Taunton police officer David Smith walked into Taunton District Court 10 months ago, facing charges of molesting his adoptive daughter. He walked out earlier this month an ex-cop but a free man, despite admitting he assaulted the child nearly every night for a year shortly after she came into his home at age 7.In a deal that has been blasted by child advocates and those who counsel rape victims, Smith, 58, was put on what is called pre-trial probation for four years. That means the charge will be dismissed if he stays out of trouble during that period....

    In the small New England town of Plainville, Mass., 71-year-old Ronald Fredrickson is considered a near saint.

He's a member of the Conservation Commission, the local historical society and recipient of the Plainville Community Service Award in 2003 - as well as a recipient of honors from the Scouts, Rotary and Lions. Fredrickson seemed the epitome of a person who...
