    WASHINGTON — Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, facing fallout from a lawsuit claiming she fired an aide who said she was sexually assaulted by a supervisor at the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, said on Wednesday she had decided to resign as the foundation’s chairwoman. Ms. Jackson Lee, a Texas Democrat in her 13th term, also stepped aside temporarily from an important House Judiciary subcommittee chairmanship, the committee said. Ms. Jackson Lee made the decision to step aside from both roles as pressure was growing within her own party to account for the claims in a Jan. 11 lawsuit brought by a...

    Actor Stoney Westmoreland has been dropped from his recurring role on the Disney Channel show “Andi Mack” after being arrested by police in Salt Lake City, according to a Disney Channel statement.

The affidavit goes on to state the actor used the app to send explicit pictures and to arrange a meeting for sex. When Westmoreland arrived at the arranged spot, he was arrested by Salt Lake City Police and members of the FBI Child Exploitation Task Force....

    Four years before a Portsmouth man molested a toddler on camera to gain special access to child pornography websites, the FBI was hot on his trail, according to court documents. In 2012, agents had downloaded “numerous” photos from Dashawn Webster's IP address, a federal prosecutor explained. But then the 17-year-old moved to New Jersey before a Norfolk-based agent could interview him, “and there was no resolution to the matter,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Elizabeth Yusi wrote. Webster, now 23, was sentenced Thursday to more than 24 years in federal prison for producing child pornography. It is unclear exactly what happened with...

    California will reconsider life sentences for up to 4,000 nonviolent third-strike criminals by allowing them to seek parole under a ballot measure approved by voters two years ago, according to court documents obtained by The Associated Press on Thursday. The state will craft new regulations by January to include the repeat offenders in early release provisions. Gov. Jerry Brown also will not appeal a court ruling that the state is illegally excluding the nonviolent career criminals from parole under the 2016 ballot measure he championed to reduce the prison population and encourage rehabilitation. The state parole board estimates between 3,000...

    State Sen. Elaine Phillips (R-Flower Hill) said Gov. Andrew Cuomo is giving a hall pass to sex offenders to shop for new victims through a set of conditional pardons the Democratic governor issued in May. The pardons will restore the right to vote for 24,086 people that have been released from prison and living under community supervision. Phillips was joined by Mineola Superintendent Michael Nagler and New Hyde Park-Garden City Park Superintendent Jennifer Morrison, as well as members of the Mineola Board of Education, at a press conference calling on Cuomo to release the names of the pardoned felons and...

    Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Allen Sumner on Friday said California must consider early parole for thousands of sex offenders, the Associated Press reported. About the Lawsuit Janice Bellucci, a Sacramento attorney and president of Alliance for Constitutional Sex Offense Laws, was the one who filed the lawsuit on behalf of sex offenders. According to Bellucci, the rules the CDCR were putting in place directly conflicted "with the ballot measure's language and voter's intent in approving Proposition 57." From the Associated Press: Bellucci argued the measure requires earlier parole consideration for any sex crime not on the state's narrow...

    The Coalinga city council is suing Fresno County to overturn an election decided partly by the sex offenders in a state hospital. Voters rejected a penny sales tax increase by just 37 votes in November. 127 of those 'no' votes came from inside the walls of Coalinga State Hospital, where some of the state's sex offenders are actually legal voters.

    (FYI: This is mainstream media...) Democrats called Al Franken’s behavior unacceptable, returned his campaign donations, and hinted that — absent a satisfying explanation in response to a sexual harassment allegation — they’d eventually demand he resign. Anything less would risk catastrophe for a party that stakes its political reputation on fighting for women. Especially one that is just now, 20 years after the fact, grappling with its unyielding support of Bill Clinton.

    He’ll have a hard time using the Weiner defense. A man convicted of downloading child pornography in Washington State is citing Anthony Weiner in a desperate attempt to receive a lighter jail sentence. A lawyer for Douglas Blouin, 51, wrote a letter to the judge in Seattle imploring him to take Anthony Weiner’s sexting case into consideration when handing down a prison sentence to his client, according to KOMO News. “Congressman Anthony Weiner was recently sentenced to 21 months in custody after he convinced a 15-year-old to produce child pornography,” the lawyer wrote.

It’s a serious crime that deserves serious punishment,” Manhattan federal judge Denise Cote said as the convicted sext fiend dropped his head into his hand and wept.

    Almost twenty years ago, both houses of Congress and the American Psychological Association condemned Rind’s claims, published in the August 1998 issue of Psychological Bulletin, that the long-term damages caused by child sexual abuse are overestimated. I would have thought that nearly twenty years, a concurrent resolution of Congress, and a fair bit of social trauma would have convinced him to shift topics. But I was wrong. His new studies are on the same theme: sex between adults and minors as young as thirteen. Rind is banking on a more amenable political and scholarly atmosphere in which to conclude comparable...
