PHOENIX, November 20, 2013 (LifeSiteNews.com) An openly homosexual teenager, who was given a position as an adviser to Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and honored by President Barack Obama at a White House gay pride dinner, has been indicted on more than a dozen counts of sexual misconduct with a minor under the age of 15.
Caleb Laieski, now 18, was 17 at the time of the alleged abuse. His alleged victim, a close friend he met on TrevorSpace (a social media site for children and young adults aged 13-24 who have an interest in homosexuality), was only 14 at the time. The younger boy said the sex was consensual, but that he felt pressured to participate. However, Arizona law says no one younger than 15 is capable of giving consent.
In an unusual twist, Laieski is also considered a victim in the case, since at least some of the charges stem from a three-way sexual encounter the boys had with 43-year-old Chris Wilson, an openly homosexual Phoenix police officer who was arrested more than a year ago and is now in jail awaiting trial for his role in the abuse of both children. Although Laieski was a minor at the time, his participation in sex acts with the younger boy violate state law, which says it is a crime for older minors to have sexual contact with children under the age of 15.
Laieski rose to national prominence after he and a 35-year-old friend, Casey Cameron, sent e-mails to 5,000 Arizona schools in 2011 demanding special protections for gay students and threatening legal action if they failed to bring their policies in line with his demands. The teen then dropped out of high school, got his GED, and traveled to Washington, D.C., to lobby for the Student Non-Discrimination Act.
In 2012, Laieski was given a position in Mayor Stantons office as a youth and diversity liaison, advising the mayor on matters of policy having to do with youth, particularly gay youth. He was an advocate on loan, meaning his salary was funded by an outside group, called One in Ten.
According to police records, part of his job was to represent the mayors office at local homosexual protests, which is how he got to know Wilson, who was usually assigned as the officer in charge of policing such events.
Wilson met the two boys while serving on the Phoenix Police Departments Community Response Squad as a liaison officer to the homosexual community in 2012. At the time of Wilsons arrest, he had known Laieski for three years, but had only recently met the younger boy, when all three attended an event at the Phoenix Arts Center.
The alleged sex between the three occurred late in 2012 at Laieskis apartment, where the 14-year-old was also staying. (Laieski told investigators that the younger boys mother wanted them to be together as a couple and would often drop her son off for weeks at a time at his apartment, where he lived alone.) After a dinner at Chilis restaurant during which the 14-year-old reportedly made aggressive sexual overtures toward Wilson, Wilson drove the boys back to Laieskis apartment and went inside with them. Eventually, the three ended up in bed together.
Initially, investigators saw Laieski only as a victim in the case, but police records show that Laieski actively pressured his young friend not to tell anyone about the abuse in order to protect his rising star from being tarnished, even after the younger boy became suicidal.

In transcripts taken from police records, it seems clear Laieski understood their encounter with Wilson was wrong and could get him in trouble. When the younger boy begged Laieski to go with him to the police, Laieski told him no. He said he was negotiating with Department of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius over a possible White House job, and he worried that if anyone found out hed been involved in a crime, hed lose the opportunity.
Can you please come with me? the boy begged Laieski via iMessage. I dont want to do this alone.
Laieski refused. I can not do that, he said. Reports are public record and I dont need that press. Nor does our city.
Minors are not public record, the younger boy protested.
Umm, documents can be requested, absolutely, Laieski replied. I have a phone call with the Secretary of HHS about me working at the White House, he added. I am not going to allow this to get in my way. I dont think you understand that reporting this [to the police] doesnt only affect Chris [Wilson]. It defiantly [sic] would affect me as well.
Later, the younger boys mother appealed to Laieski in a phone call, pleading with him to support her sons decision to go to the authorities.
I dont think you know how much hes been holding in, fear and shame, the woman said of her son, according to transcripts. Of the encounter with Wilson, she told Laieksi her son wants it all to go away and he regrets it and he loves you and was confused and scared and has been for weeks.
So, reporting it will help? Laieski retorted. Are you going forward with this or not? This is eating me up and stressing me out times 10, so I would like to know.
The boys mother told Laieski she was worried about his well-being, too. She told him that as a minor, if he came forward, his identity would probably be protected, and he could get some help.
But Laieski disagreed, stating that because of his work with the mayors office, it would likely go public with his name attached.
The mother replied that her hands were tied knowing what she knew, she would have to report what happened, or she would risk being charged with child neglect.
Okay, well, Im done with this conversation and our relationship, Laieski told her.
Im protecting my son and making sure he is healthy and safe, the woman shot back. You can protect a predator. Im sad for you.
The younger boys family has sued the Phoenix police department for $10 million in damages related to the alleged molestation.
Meanwhile, Laieski has been lying low. Since Wilsons arrest, he has all but withdrawn from homosexual activism. The White House job never materialized, so he took a job as a police dispatcher in Arlington, Virginia. He recently passed an exam to enter the police academy, a career goal he developed sometime after meeting Wilson.
Laieski has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges against him. At the time these instances were alleged to have occurred, my [client] was legally a child, his attorney, Cary Lackey, told the Arizona Republic. These are allegations. Hes presumed innocent.
Laieski was released without bail and has returned to Arlington. He is on administrative leave from his job at the police department pending the outcome of his trial.
ANAL SEX....ANAL SEX....ANAL SEX....it’s ALL that DEMOCRATS DREAM ABOUT.....that and KILLING CHILDREN!!!!! Democrats are EVIL and VILE.
and you may thank their hero Dr. Kinsey for it.
A cop raping kids. Good for Mom here for doing the right thing.
How’s that for evolution, Barry? Your “gay pride” deviant will probably be going to prison. Good job!
Hell, their Hero NOw is Barack HUSSEIN OBAMA!!
I knew that Phoenix was sick, being the retirement home of so many California school teachers, but this is way beyond anything I might have imagined.
Vile and evil.
“Your gay pride deviant will probably be going to prison. “
Then get all the butt sex he could ever hope for. That is punishment?
Welcome to Sodom and Gomorrah people - it was called the United States at one time...I wonder when the Angle of Death will be visiting our quaint little nation???
The move to legalize pedophilia will soon gain speed I bet
Maybe I misunderstood but didn’t the mother drop the kid off at the creep’s apartment? I guess she thought it was okay for her 14 year old son to have sex with a 17 year old but drew the line at an adult. My question is at what age did she draw the line? If the cop had only been 21 would she have reported it?
Another cop’s anal probing for you to defend...
She did? I thought she was the one that reported it.
augh, foiled by not reading the article yet again.

No as I’ve already posted I didnt read the whole article. Please excuse my lapse. I’m sure I’m the only one here.
Now there’ll be another 5 or 6 people to post the same thing to me.
I think Sheriff Arpaio (Maricopa County) is laughing his ass off at Phoenix, and rightfully so.
Now we know why the White House and Obama selected this predator for an award. He’s one of them.
