45 missing children recovered during largest statewide anti-human trafficking operation in Ohio

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost along with federal and local law enforcement officials announced 177 people were arrested and 45 children were recovered in what they described as the most successful missing child recovery operation the U.S. Marshals service has participated in.

Yost said through the operation called Autumn Hope, 177 people were arrested statewide. Officials said 109 109 human trafficking victims were rescued and referred to social services.

The operation involved over 50 law enforcement agencies and non-government partners, making it the largest statewide anti-human trafficking operation in Ohio’s history.

U.S. Marshals were able to close 76 missing child cases and physically recover 45 children during the operation. Following investigations, four additional children returned home and 16 others were able to be located.

Among those missing included a 15-year-old girl missing from Cleveland whose recovery linked her and other possible victims to an individual in Columbus suspected of human trafficking.

Law enforcement officers also located a 15-year-old boy with two warrants who is a suspect in multiple shootings and a homicide.

The Lancaster Police Department said a 14-year-old girl was recovered in Columbus within six hours of being reported missing.

Two more kids were found after the USMS Southern Ohio task force sent information to Marshals in West Virginia. The two kids were recovered during a traffic stop after West Virginia police were told to be on the lookout for a man and the car he was driving. The man was charged with concealment/removal of a minor child.

“My thanks to all personnel who have stepped up for this operation,” said Peter C. Tobin, U.S. Marshal for the Southern District of Ohio. “These are the same personnel who hunt down violent fugitives every day. I’m incredibly proud of them and pleased that they were able to apply those same skills to finding missing children. I know Operation Autumn Hope has made a difference in a lot of young lives.”

The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said they arrested eight men who traveled to central Ohio with the intention to have sex with children.

The Mahoning County Sheriff’s Office arrested 14 people last week who were involved in chat rooms looking for underage children. Those arrested were charged with attempted unlawful sexual conduct and attempted rape, among other sex charges.

Columbus police made 80 arrests.

Those arrested were charged with felony counts of importuning, attempted unlawful sexual conduct with a minor, possession of criminal tools and other felony charges include a pastor, students, and a rehabilitation resident advisor.

“These predators shamelessly target the most innocent and defenseless members of our community,” said Franklin County Sheriff Dallas Baldwin. “Operation Autumn Hope is sending a loud and clear message: We are watching, we will catch you, and we will protect our children.”

In Cuyahoga, Franklin and Lucas counties, 157 men were arrested on charges of soliciting and other crimes – a component of Operation Autumn Hope focused on reducing the demand for sex. Those arrested were charged with soliciting and other charges included a fireman, an attorney and a motivational speaker.

“The Dublin Police Department recognizes the importance of collaborating with local, state and federal agencies in order to rid our communities of this painful exploitation of our fellow citizens,” Dublin Chief of Police Justin Páez said. “Through operations and efforts like this, we can hold people accountable as well as bring justice and support to victims of human trafficking.”

U.S. Marshals Deputy Chief Bradley Stewart said the rescue wouldn’t have been possible without agencies throughout the state including Columbus police and Cincinnati police.

Texas man strangles 9-month-old daughter to death during sexual assault: Police

A Texas man was arrested Monday, a week after he allegedly killed his 9-month-old daughter while sexually assaulting her.

The Harris County Sheriff’s Office said in an alert that on August 24, officers were dispatched to a Houston apartment amid reports of an unresponsive infant. Officers who responded to the residence found EMS personnel treating Savayah Mason, who was ultimately pronounced dead at a hospital.

An autopsy revealed Mason was sexually assaulted — and that she died due to being asphyxiated during the assault, according to police.

“An autopsy conducted at the Harris County Institute of Forensics indicated the child had been sexually assaulted and died due to asphyxiation during the assault,” Harris County deputies wrote in a statement on Monday.

Investigators reportedly interrogated Mason’s father, Luis Luna, 23, and determined he caused the infant’s death. He was arrested Monday without incident.

Jail records indicate that Luna was charged with capital murder, as the victim is younger than 9 years old. He is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.

Controversial California Bill – How SB145 Bill is eliminating disparity and encouraging child abuse

Source: Michael Macor / The Chronicle

A controversial California bill has passed in the senate. The state is ready for eliminating disparity in its statutory rape laws. SB145 by state Senator Scott Wiener would now remove automatic sex offender registration for young adults who are convicted of having anal or oral sex with a minor. The decision would now be left to the judge. This has been said as the bill to eliminate the discrimination for the LGBTQ people in the criminal justice system.

The California bill was passed in the Assembly with 41-18 vote. It sailed through the senate with 23-10 majority as well. The bill has now been sent to Governor Gavin Newsom. He has time till September to act on it, reported San Francisco Chronicle.

Under the current penal law of California, the judge has to decide whether an offender needs to be put on the sex-offender list in case of vaginal intercourse. The law says that as it can lead to pregnancy and the offender can become father, hence he can be stigmatized. The offender might even find it difficult to get a job, hence automatic registration is not allowed. However, the same is not allowed for oral and anal sex. The offender gets auto-registered. The California Supreme Court upheld the distinction of the law in 2015.

However, under the new bill, every sexual act would be the same. Senator Scott Wiener thinks that it was long due to the LGTQB people.

However, this bill also extends to minors. The critics have come hard on it. The minor has no consent and thus this bill can further exploit them. Many have raised questions on the bill for the inclusion of minors.

The controversial bill is with the Governor now. If he approves it, this could be a new law. However, he has time till the end of this month to ponder on the details of the bill.

How Many Black Women Are Among Jeffrey Epstein’s Accusers?

Ladies,  Jeffrey is dead and we’re all thinking conspiracy (as in did the Administration do away with the guy…?) But, let’s step back and ask ourselves: How many Black women are among Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers?  As Black women and/or women of color we want to know how many of “us” got caught up in all of this. How many…?

None.

As far as SuzyKnew! knows there have been no Black women who have come forward to accuse Jeffery Epstein of sexual assault or inappropriate behavior.

Why?  Because Epstein didn’t date Black women.

That’s right. Jeffrey didn’t do Black women.

Virginia Roberts, one of Jeffrey Epstein’s accusers, told her lawyers, ” There was a constant influx of girls coming in and going out. And we were all very young… Young, pretty, you know a fun personality. {But,} they couldn’t be Black…”

Jeffrey didn’t appreciate Black beauty.  Virginia goes on to explain that Epstein would date non-white women, who were exotic and pretty. They just couldn’t be Black.

How many of us have encountered men like Epstein on dating sites? Men that are open to dating every type of

women, even women who are old enough to be their grandmothers as long as they’re not Black?

It’s a slap in the face. An insult.

But, we have to acknowledge that sometimes this ugly truth – that there are many men out there who do not want to date Black women – protects us. Sistas’ have escaped being abused and ravaged by Epstein.

Ironic, right?

Of course, only time will tell. As more and more women feel confident to come forward to testify what Epstein did to them, following his death, maybe there will be a Black woman among them.

We’ll see.

UNMASKED ‘Wicked’ mum, 50, who let husband rape her daughter from age ten and get her pregnant three times

Screen Shot 2019-06-12 at 11.07.35 PM

THIS is the “wicked” mum who let her husband rape her daughter from the age of 10 and get her pregnant three times.

Mary-Louisa Andrews, 50, can be identified after her daughter waived her legal right to anonymity so she could be named and shamed for her role in the evil crimes.

The heartless mum, a ride operator at a children’s park, was caged for four years for ignoring the campaign of abuse over fears her husband Anoyke Andrews would end their relationship.

The vile couple lived together in a three-bedroom home estimated to be worth £191,000 in Milton Keynes, Bucks.

Anoyke Andrews first began abusing the girl at the age of 10 and she first fell pregnant at just 12 years old.

She was forced to undergo a number of abortions, after which Andrews continued to rape her in the family home between 2000 and 2007.

The warehouse operator was only caught when his stepdaughter, now 28, found the courage to contact police years later as an adult.

Anoyke Andrews was jailed for 20 years after being found guilty of six counts of rape, two counts of indecent assault and assault by penetration.

The couple’s sentencing had been delayed when the woman defendant suffered a panic attack on the morning she was due to appear via video link before a packed public gallery at Aylesbury Crown Court on May 31.

‘YOU SHOW NO REMORSE’

The former caterer burst into tears today as she appeared via video link to receive her three-year sentence for neglect.

Sentencing, judge Francis Sheridan told her: “The tears you shed are for yourself.

“I do not think any of them are for your daughter. I am not in any way influenced.

“You have not shown any sign of remorse.

“It is time somebody told you to your face – and I will: You were a wicked mother.

“When your daughter complained, her complaints were dismissed.

“You will take that dismissal to the grave. You betrayed your daughter to stand by your husband.

“She has gone through what can only be described as a life of hell.

“There must have been times in her young life where there appeared to be almost no remission from abuse.”

Prosecuting, Angus Robertson, described an incident where Andrews raped the young girl while they were in the living room watching football on TV and Mary-Louisa Andrews shouted downstairs to ask what they were doing.

It is time somebody told you to your face – and I will: You were a wicked mother

Judge Francis Sheridan

Anoyke Andrews had shouted back ‘nothing’, and no more was said but the girl maintained in court her mother had known.

Mr Robertson said: “When she was aged 12 years, she found she was pregnant. She had a termination of the pregnancy. She did not want to have that termination.

“Mr Andrews told Mrs Andrews that if the pregnancy wasn’t terminated he would end the relationship and leave her.

“Mrs Andrews always insisted that a young man was responsible and the girl should tell the boy he was the father. Mr Andrews continued to have regular intercourse with the victim after that termination.

“She became pregnant again when she was 13 years old, told her mother the father was Mr Andrews and said they could have her child.

“Both defendants were attempting to have a child of their own. Mrs Andrews considered this, but told her to ‘get rid of it’.”

Addressing Anoyke Andrews, who kept his head bowed throughout, Judge Francis Sheridan said: “You were a thoroughly evil and wicked step-father. Let’s call it exactly what it is. That is the finding of the jury.

“The jury believed your stepdaughter. That is her first step to recovery from a life of hell inflicted by you, with the sex drive of a monster.

“You treated your stepdaughter as an object.

“A little girl, an innocent little girl, corrupted and for those years whilst under your care, her life was ruined.”

“If you wanted sexual contact, she had to deliver and the poor little thing was scared to say anything and when she did, her complaints were dismissed.”

The victim waived her right to anonymity so Andrews and her mother could be named by the media but requested her name is not made public.

82 people arrested after multi-state child pornography sting

190506-multi-state-arrests

ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities say a roundup operation targeting child pornography suspects resulted in 82 arrests across eight Southeastern states.

The Georgia Bureau of Investigation said in a news release Friday that 31 of the arrests occurred in Georgia. Most of them involved charges of possessing or distributing child pornography. The GBI said some were charged after making plans to have sex with people the suspects met online and believed were minors, but were actually law enforcement officers.

Investigators said a total of 82 people were arrested and 17 children were rescued or identified as a result of the operation.

Officials said the suspects range in age from 20 to 70. Some of their occupations included non-profit employee, small business owner, store clerk, mechanic, daycare administrator, youth group leader, former high school band director, freelance photographer, construction worker and painter.

About 170 agencies also took part in the crackdown that also included in Florida, Alabama, Maryland, North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.

The GBI said Operation Southern Impact III was planned for four months and the arrests came after three days of undercover operations, executing search warrants and other actions.

U.S. approved arrival of thousands of child brides from foreign countries

NEW YORK (FOX NEWS) – The United States has approved thousands of requests by men to bring child brides and adolescent brides from other countries. the approvals are legal because the immigration and nationality act does not set minimum age requirements.

A new U.S. Senate report, called How the U.S. Immigration System Encourages Child Marriages, is raising questions about whether our country’s immigration system encourages child marriages.

Naila Amin grew up in New York City. She is a dual citizen of the U.S. and Pakistan, where she was forced to marry her adult cousin when she was 13.

“Imagine someone is beating you and raping you every day of your life—even telling you ‘Hey, put my socks on me,'” Amin said. “He treated me like a little slave.”

child_brides_brought_to_u_s__0_6616622_ver1.0_640_360

Amin said her 26-year-old husband saw her as his passport to the United States.

“I was his lottery ticket out of Pakistan,” she said.

Amin eventually got out of the marriage but said the ordeal cost her childhood.

“I know my potential could have been so much more,” she said. “But they ruined my life.”

Some lawmakers and advocates for victims say the U.S. immigration system may be unintentionally enabling forced marriages. A loophole in immigration law has paved the way for over 8,000 child marriages, mostly to girls brought in from outside the country, according to the Senate report.

Under the law, a U.S. child may petition for a visa for a spouse or fiancé living in another country. And a U.S. adult can petition for a visa for a minor spouse or fiancée living abroad.

“So it indicates a problem,” Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wisconsin, said. “It indicates a loophole that we need to close.”

The organization Unchained at Last is dedicated to ending forced and child marriage in the United States. Fraidy Reiss, the executive director, called the U.S. government “complicit” in child marriage.

“The U.S. government is encouraging child marriage with the loopholes and the laws that allow children to petition for a foreign spouse or fiancé or be the beneficiary of a foreign spouse or fiancé visa,” Reiss said.

Lawmakers on the Senate homeland security and governmental reform committee are now calling for reforms to prevent people from getting immigration benefits that facilitate child marriages.

Marriage between adults and minors is not uncommon in the United States, the AP reported. Most states allow children to marry with some restrictions. (New York is seeking to outlaw it.)

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services weighs petitions in part based on whether the marriage is legal in the spouse or fiance’s home country and whether it is legal in the state where the petitioner lives, the AP reported.

“Just the Tip of the Iceberg”

New Ben Garrison Cartoon, “Just the Tip of the Iceberg”

A sinister cartoon for a sinister story.

The Church has covered up decades of child molestation by priests across the state of Pennsylvania.

For far too long the Church has ignored or hidden a problem of epidemic proportions under their pulpits. Priest who weren’t arrested and jailed were merely shuffled off to different parishes, where they continued their vile ways of abuse.

Instead of telling someone they’re not a Christian if they have a gun in their house, it’s time for the Pope to clean his own house. He has the power to allow priests to marry and have families. It’s not only normal, but also Biblical.

Mom defends teacher who had sex with her daughter, 14!

(Laredo Morning Times) The mother of a middle school student who had a sexual relationship with a former United ISD teacher in 2015 testified on Wednesday at the man’s sentencing hearing, saying that he was “almost like a son” and that she did not want him to go to prison.

The Webb County District Attorney’s Office agreed to dismiss the remaining charges on Mercado’s 22-count grand jury indictment, including nine counts of indecency with a child by sexual contact, five counts of improper relationship between an educator and a student, four counts of sexual assault of a child, two counts of possession of child pornography and one count of indecency with a child by exposure.

Mom admits she let men rape daughters, ages 5 and 6, in exchange for money!!

summerlin

FULTON COUNTY, Ga. — A 25-year-old woman pleaded guilty to allowing two men to sexually assault her two daughters in exchange for cash.

The Office of the Fulton County District Attorney said Friday that the girls, ages 5 and 6, told their guardians that their mother, Morgan Summerlin, would take them to men’s homes to be molested and raped. The men would then pay them and Summerlin would take their money.

One of those men, 78-year-old Richard “Pop” Office, was found guilty on Tuesday of rape, child molestation, trafficking a person for sexual servitude, enticing a child for indecent purposes and sexual battery. He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole, plus 146 additional years.

Summerlin also allowed Alfredo Trejo to abuse the girls in multiple and similar ways. Trejo was convicted of rape, sexual battery, child molestation and aggravated child molestation. He was sentenced to 25 years and life on probation.

The children’s grandmother, Teresa Davidson, also pleaded guilty to cruelty to children for failing to protect the girls after they told her they were being abused. She was sentenced to five years in prison.

Summerlin pleaded guilty to cruelty to children, trafficking a person for sexual servitude and enticing a child for indecent purposes. She will be sentenced on June 4.
