    Two young Amish sisters were sexually abused after their abduction from a roadside farm stand in northern New York, a prosecutor said Saturday.

    Last night I listened to the new Reasonable Doubts podcast, which included a detailed account of the case of self-righteously Christian former major league baseball player and eventual sex abuse convict, Chad Curtis. The show is a gripping and revolting listen, and as usual the Doubtcasters bring to bear a lot of insight in the process both of telling the story and in analyzing it at the end. Doubtcaster Jeremy Beahan went to college at Cornerstone University where Chad Curtis was a prominent figure, earning his degree to go into high school coaching (where he would commit his sex crimes)....

He had also suffered from untreated attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and depression. Though tried in juvenile court, with its focus on privacy and rehabilitation, he was later required by a 2012 Pennsylvania law to register as a sex offender—branded a long-term danger to society, with no way off the list for at least 25 years. Juvenile law advocates campaigning against such automatic registries argue that they undermine the...

    This past week the most prominent teachers' unions made it painfully obvious, they are on the side of the sex offender, rapist, and murderer who has been convicted. They are not now (and pretty much never have been) on the side of your child. They claim to represent the interests of teachers. Yet I am hard pressed to find an average teacher who feels like the unions have done pretty much anything for them. The average teacher just feels the pinch when the union bosses take the dues from their paychecks and threaten any who dare to "get out of...

The majority 48-page opinion written by Justice Michael Douglas overturned the ruling of Clark County Juvenile District Judge William Voy, who said the 2007 law was invalid because it did not bear any relationship to public safety or rehabilitation of the juveniles. Both the four justices in the majority and the three in the minority said Thursday the law probably...

Was Renault engaging in some sort of profiling? He may have been, but what is profiling? Let's look at it. We can think of profiling as a method to economize on information costs by using easily observed physical characteristics as a proxy for some other characteristic more difficult or costlier to observe. For example, say you seek to hire people to manually unload trucks containing heavy merchandise. I'm...

    WASHINGTON — When President Obama proclaimed that those who commit sexual assault in the military should be “prosecuted, stripped of their positions, court-martialed, fired, dishonorably discharged,” it had an effect he did not intend: muddying legal cases across the country. In at least a dozen sexual assault cases since the president’s remarks at the White House in May, judges and defense lawyers have said that Mr. Obama’s words as commander in chief amounted to “unlawful command influence,” tainting trials as a result. Military law experts said that those cases were only the beginning and that the president’s remarks were certain...

    What happens when a local police department and a state child protective services agency overreact and abuse their authority? In one such case, Walmart ended-up being sued. The story began in 2008. Lisa and Anthony Demaree of Peoria, Arizona (a suburb of Phoenix) visited a vacation destination that’s popular among Arizonans – San Diego – and took their three young daughters with them. When they returned home, they brought photos of their then 5, 4, and 1 ˝ year old girls to a nearby Walmart store to obtain prints. It all seemed pretty innocent productive. But some of the...

    The state’s most dangerous sex predators ran up a $1.2 million taxpayer-funded legal tab last year by quietly using an obscure provision in state law that lets them hire public defenders to go behind closed doors and argue to keep their identities and whereabouts secret, a Herald review found. Since 2003, when the state ordered the most dangerous, or Level 3, sex offenders be posted on a public website, convicts have flooded the Committee for Public Counsel Services with requests for lower, laxer classification. Since then, the public defenders’ office has had to shell out skyrocketing sums for lawyers to...

    A former Boy Scout leader has been charged with sodomizing a boy in his troop who was under the age of 13. The abuse took place in 2005, according to court documents, but the victim, now an adult, waited several years before coming forward, reported WHSV-TV in Harrisonburg, Va. The BSA’s Stonewall Jackson Area Council released a prepared statement after the arrest. “The abuse of anyone, especially a child, is intolerable and our thoughts and prayers go out to anyone who may be a victim of this type of behavior,” the statement said. ‘The behavior included in these allegations runs...

    Every politician chanted ‘Jobs, Jobs, Jobs,’ this past election cycle. Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) was serious. So much so, his NJ office hired a promising 18 year-old intern named Luis Abrahan Sanchez Zavaleta. Trouble was, and allegedly much to the Senator’s surprise, Luis turned out to be a registered sex offender. He was also an “undocumented immigrant” (a.k.a. an Illegal Alien) living the American Dream. Luis was arrested on December 6th and may soon be deported back to Peru. Senator Menendez defended his office’s action stating Luis was recommended and vetted by his school for the internship, not the Senators...

    New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, who allegedly often visits the Dominican Republic to have sex with underpaid hookers at "bunga bunga" style sex parties, employed a sex offender to work as an intern in his office on immigration policy throughout 2012. Zavaleta just so happens to be an illegal immigrant but the Department of Homeland Security instructed ICE agents to postpone deporting him until after Menendez's reelection in November. You just can't make this stuff up. U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez employed as an unpaid intern in his Senate office an illegal immigrant who was a registered sex offender, now under...

    "Sesame Street" puppeteer Kevin Clash has been hit with another lawsuit over allegations he carried out a sex act on an underage boy, according to the New York Daily News. The man behind the beloved character Elmo became embroiled in a sex scandal earlier this month after he was accused of having relations with a 16-year-old male seven years ago, when Clash was 45. The allegations were subsequently recanted, but a second man, Cecil Singleton, claimed he had a sexual phone chat with the star in 1993 when he was only 15, and he sued Clash for $5 million. The...
