Cable customer forced oral sex on repairman: cops

Mildred NewsomeCumberland County Jail

 

A North Carolina woman is facing charges after she forced a cable repairman to let her perform a sex act on him, police said.

Mildred Newsome, 47, of Fayetteville, was arrested Saturday after an investigation into the man’s accusations following an April 20 repair call at her apartment, Fayetteville Police Sgt. Shawn Strepay told The Post.

“The cable guy was there to work on her on box and while waiting for it to reset as he was sitting on a couch, she came over, grabbed his hand and forcefully placed his hand on her own breast,” Strepay said.

The unidentified technician in his 30s tried to resist Newsome’s “unwanted sexual advance,” but she persisted and performed oral sex on him, Strepay said.

Newsome then told the man that she would “turn the story on him” if he reported the alleged assault to police, saying she would tell authorities that he was the aggressor, Strepay said.

“When he was able to finally get out of the home, he did report it the same day, actually shortly after the event took place,” he said.

Investigators have yet to determine a motive in the alleged attack. Newsome, who faces two felony counts of second-degree forcible sex offense and one misdemeanor count of sexual battery, has been released after posting bail, Strepay said.

Attempts to reach Newsome early Thursday were unsuccessful. She works at a nursing and rehabilitation center, according to the Charlotte Observer.

Sex offender caught in bed with teens by roommate: cops

Modal Trigger

Mitchell ThurstonOrange County Jail

A registered sex offender in Florida was caught in bed with two teenage girls after his roommate reported him to authorities, police said.

Mitchell Thurston, 34, was arrested after his roommate called his probation officer and reported that Thurston had a young girl staying with him, WESH reports.

The probation officer later responded to Thurston’s home in Orlando, where he was found in bed with two juvenile girls, one of whom told investigators she had been homeless and lived in a nearby wooded area before meeting Thurston at a bus stop. Thurston then invited her to his home, where she had been staying for about a month, she told police.

The second girl — who was previously reported missing by her mother — also met Thurston at a bus stop before going to his home, police said. He’s now facing battery and child molestation charges.

One of the girls said Thurston touched her inappropriately on two occasions while they were together in bed. Both are about 16 years old, WFTV reports.

In 2008, Thurston was convicted sexual battery on a child under 12 and was sentenced by a judge to nearly two years in prison. He was also placed under supervision as a registered sex offender for 10 years, according to the station.

Thurston’s roommate, who asked not to be identified, said he simply had to act after spotting the young girls with Thurston.

“It’s just something that I had to do,” the man told WFTV. “I just don’t feel right. Something should be done.”

Watch: Dashcam video released of woman who claimed a Texas cop sexually assaulted her!!

sheritaThe Texas Department of Public Safety released arrest footage of a black woman who claimed the arresting officer repeatedly sexually assaulted her. But an internal investigation rendered reports that said the dashcam footage did not support the woman’s claims.

Texas law enforcement released footage featuring the arrest of Sherita Dixon Cole, and her account of the night — which included lurid allegations of sexual assault — were proven entirely false as a result.

Now the state’s Department of Public Safety is calling Cole’s lie a “despicable, slanderous, and false accusation,” and even Cole’s attorney has jumped ship on his support for her.

What’s the background here?

Activist and writer Shaun King reported allegationson Sunday that a Texas state trooper sexually assaulted a black woman during a traffic stop.

According to the report, an officer pulled the woman — Sherita Dixon Cole — over early Sunday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence.

After standard sobriety tests — and passing them, according to King — the officer reportedly decided to take Cole into custody anyway, simply because he didn’t like her “attitude.”

The officer reportedly placed Cole in the front seat, and the rest, as they say, is history.

King reported Cole’s graphic account, which alleged that the officer had sexually assaulted her several times on the way to the police station.

Cole was reportedly booked for DUI/DWI upon arrival at the station.

She reportedly visited a hospital after she was released later on Sunday.

An internal investigation rendered reports that said the dashcam footage did not support Cole’s claims.

A statementfrom the Texas Department of Public Safety reported that dashcam footage would be made public so long as the district attorney cleared the reveal.

What is being said now?

The district attorney did clear the tape’s release, and the footage was revealed Tuesday.

The Texas Department of Public Safety released the video and wrote in a statement shared on Facebook:

On May 20, 2018, at approximately 1:32 a.m., a Texas Highway Patrol Trooper observed a 2013 Chevrolet Malibu traveling south on Interstate 35 in Ellis County near U.S. 287. The vehicle was stopped for a traffic violation. Based on the traffic stop, the driver was arrested for driving while intoxicated (DWI). The driver, identified as Sherita Dixon-Cole, 37, from Grapevine, was arrested and transported to the Ellis County Jail, where she was charged with DWI.

Following the arrest, spurious and false accusations related to this traffic stop were made against the Texas Trooper. Upon learning of those allegations, the Texas Department of Public Safety immediately took action to review the video in connection with this traffic stop and arrest. The video shows absolutely no evidence to support the egregious and unsubstantiated accusations against the Trooper during the DWI arrest of the suspect. The Department is appalled that anyone would make such a despicable, slanderous and false accusation against a peace officer who willingly risks his life every day to protect and serve the public.

At the department’s request, the Ellis County District Attorney’s Office has reviewed video of the traffic stop and arrest, and authorized the release of the video. The department today proactively and publicly released the video captured by the Trooper’s body camera, which can be viewed in its entirety at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aptl7ot189o.

(Note: Certain sections of the video have been blurred or rendered inaudible to protect information that is confidential by state statute, including Cole’s personally identifiable information.)

You can watch the video in its entirety below.

S. Lee Merritt, Cole’s attorney, released a statement on Tuesday defending the Texas police department.

Merritt wrote:

The body camera footage released directly conflicts with the accounts reported to my office. There is no readily apparent evidence of tampering with the footage. Officer Daniel Hubbard seems to comport himself professionally during the duration of the traffic stop and arrest and— without more— should be cleared of any wrongdoing. It is deeply troubling when innocent parties are falsely accused and I am truly sorry for any trouble these claims may have caused Officer Hubbard and his family. I take full responsibility for amplifying these claims to the point of national concern. This office regularly receives hundreds of complaints of abuse from across the nation and we are obligated to filter these messages thoroughly before relaying them to our powerful allies. Our office necessarily takes claims of abuse— particularly by law enforcement officers— very seriously. It is our responsibility to call for swift, transparent and thorough investigation into any such accusation. Our calls for professionalism and adherence to protocol, however, should not be misconstrued as a rush to judgment. To the contrary, our goal in presenting claims of misconduct is to arrive as quickly and as accurately as possible to the truth. We are thankful to the members of the community willing to echo our demands for transparency and justice. However, in this matter it seems your righteous vigilance was abused.

King has yet to tweet about the latest development, and has, in fact, apparently removedhis initial posting from Facebook, which went viral shortly after the time of posting.
