Texas deputy sexually assaulted undocumented immigrant’s child, sheriff says!

A Texas sheriff’s deputy was being held Monday on a charge of “super aggravated sexual assault” of a 4-year-old girl after authorities say her mother, an undocumented immigrant, was being blackmailed to stay silent about the abuse — or face deportation.

Jose Nunez, a 47-year-old detention officer with the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office, was arrested early Sunday while he was off-duty after the mother took her daughter to a local fire station for help, officials said at a news conference.

“The details of the case are quite frankly heartbreaking, disturbing, disgusting and infuriating all at the same time,” said Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar.

The girl had been suffering from physical pain and “made an outcry,” which prompted her mother to go to the fire station, Salazar said. He added that Nunez has “familial ties” to the woman and her daughter, although their exact relationship is unclear.

The abuse likely went on for several months, if not years, Salazar said — and there may be other victims.

“This suspect utilized to his advantage to place the mother in fear that she would be deported if she did report it,” the sheriff said, adding that the “little girl now is safe.”

The department is petitioning to give the mother protected status pending the outcome of the case.

It was unclear Monday whether Nunez, a 10-year veteran of the department, has an attorney. The felony charge carries a minimum 25-year sentence if he is convicted.

“I don’t know that he was purposely targeting the undocumented community,” Salazar said. “Certainly what was appealing was the vulnerability of that community because they are less apt to report things.”

Immigrant rights groups say Texas’ Senate Bill 4, which was passed last year, has created an atmosphere of anxiety and apprehension among the undocumented who don’t want to go to local law enforcement for crimes because of their citizenship status.

While the law’s supporters say it is designed to protect people by enforcing laws already in place, it

also allows local authorities to investigate whether a person is legally in the United States.

The arrest of the undocumented has come under scrutiny after a growing number of parents and their children are being separated at the border as part of the Trump administration’s illegal immigration enforcement strategy.

The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, the state’s largest immigration legal services provider, known as RAICES, tweeted Sunday in response to the case in Bexar County that the law “has terrified people into not seeking help when they need it.”

Bexar County’s sheriff nevertheless urged undocumented immigrants to come forward if they are a victim of a crime.

Sylvester Stallone sexual assault allegation reviewed by LA district attorney!

– Los Angeles County prosecutors have begun reviewing whether actor Sylvester Stallone should face charges in connection with a sexual assault reported last year to Santa Monica police, a district attorney’s spokesman said in remarks reported Thursday.

A special entertainment task force in the Los Angeles County district attorney’s office was handed the case against the Hollywood legend by Santa Monica police, district attorney spokesman Greg Risling told the Los Angeles Times. He would not comment further on the nature of the allegation.

The alleged victim reported the assault last November to Santa Monica police, and the incident dates back to the 1990s, according to police. A criminal allegation dating to the 1990s cannot be charged under California law because it is past the statute of limitations that existed at the time.

Prosecutors reviewing cases in the wake of #MeToo movement have repeatedly run into issues of crimes being too old to prosecute under California law. Despite hundreds of women accusing director James Toback of sexual misconduct, Los Angeles prosecutors declined to file charges after five investigations were forwarded by police, mostly on grounds that they were beyond the legal statute of limitations.

In 2016, Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation that amends the penal code so that some sex crimes, including rape, forcible sodomy and molestation of a child, can be be prosecuted, regardless of how long ago the crime occurred. The legislation was prompted by allegations against comedian Bill
Cosby.

Martin Singer, Stallone’s attorney, said the star of such movies as “Rocky” and “Rambo” had been notified of the allegation and categorically disputed the claims.

“It is a false claim. It is a complete fabrication,” Singer said, adding that Stallone had a consensual dating relationship years ago with the woman. The attorney said, “the woman here filed a police report to get a story published.”

JAMIE FOXX ACCUSED IN 2002 PENIS SLAPPING INCIDENT … He Denies It and Will Fight Back Legally!!

15289060123057

Jamie Foxx is being accused of slapping a woman with his penis nearly 16 years ago, and although she’s now gone to police … Foxx says it’s an “absurd” lie, and he’s going after her, legally … TMZ has learned.

The alleged assault happened in Las Vegas back in 2002. According to law enforcement, the accuser told cops last week she and a friend were attending a party at Jamie’s place when he tried to get her to perform oral sex. She claims when she refused, Jamie struck her in the face with his penis.

The accuser tells us … after the alleged assault, one of Jamie’s friends told her she had to get out of the house. She claims she went to a hospital the next day when she got back home to L.A. to get treatment for a severe panic attack.

Law enforcement sources tell us Vegas PD lists the case as an open investigation. However, the statute of limitations has long since run — it’s 3 years in Nevada.

Jamie’s attorney, Allison Hart of Lavely & Singer, tells TMZ … “Jamie emphatically denies that this incident ever occurred, and he will be filing a report with the Las Vegas Police Department against the woman for filing a false police report against him. The first time [Jamie] became aware of this woman’s absurd claims about an incident that supposedly occurred 16 years ago was when TMZ contacted his representatives [Tuesday] about this story.”

Hart adds, “The alleged incident was not reported to law enforcement in 2002, or at any other time in the last 16 years until last Friday because the incident never happened.”

The accuser says the #MeToo movement inspired her to finally file the police report. She also claims she wanted the alleged incident recorded in case other accusers come forward.

He was cleared of a rape charge. He had to show the jury his penis first.

A Connecticut man accused of rape was acquitted this week after employing an unusual defense tactic: dropping his pants in court and showing his penis to the jury.

Defense attorney Todd Bussert said it was “the only real, viable option” in a case where a woman claimed she was raped in 2012 by a person she described as a black man whose penis was lighter than the rest of his body.

In 2014, the woman identified her rapist as Desmond James after seeing his picture in a news report. There was one major issue, according to Bussert: His client’s penis did not match the description the accuser provided.

During the trial, which started Monday in New Haven, Bussert said the defense had planned to use several photographs they had taken of James’s private parts to prove he wasn’t the suspect in question.

“Unfortunately, in one of [the photos], the flash had washed everything out,” Bussert told The Washington Post in a phone interview Saturday. “And given that the color was the issue, that became problematic.”

After disclosing this to the state, Bussert and his team discussed whether they should move forward by presenting all of the photos and explaining the color inconsistencies to the jury — or simply by showing the jury the evidence in the flesh, as it were.

They ultimately made a request to offer “non-testimonial evidence,” which was granted by Judge Elpedio Vitale, who stated it was James’s Sixth Amendment right to defend himself, Bussert said.

The difficult part then was convincing their client to expose himself in court, he added.

“He was, I think, very uncomfortable with the whole idea,” Bussert said. “We explained to him why we thought it advanced the defense’s case. It was probably the strongest piece of evidence that we could offer. The whole claim was so specific and so unusual — there wasn’t a lot of ambiguity about it — we thought, well, if we can refute that, we can obviously persuade the jury.”

And so, on Wednesday, after the trial had resumed from a lunch break, Vitale gave a brief warning to the six-person jury, along with two alternates, that they were about to see “sensitive” evidence, Bussert said.

James “stepped up before the jury box and proceeded to unbutton his pants,” Bussert said. “The whole thing took three to five seconds. The court didn’t want to make it a huge thing. … It’s humiliating, ultimately.”

Somehow, court employees had caught wind of what was going to happen after lunch and packed the courtroom to watch, according to the New Haven Register, which first reported the story. The jurors reacted in various ways.

“One of the women looked away. One of the male alternate jurors looked as if he was trying not to have an outburst,” co-defense attorney Erica Barber told the newspaper. “I’m sure they were shocked but they did a good job of not showing it.”

[Brock Turner freed after serving half of his six-month jail sentence for sexual assault]

Prosecutor Stacey Miranda argued in court that James might have changed his pubic hair since 2012 or that the lighting could have caused the accuser to remember her assaulter’s penis differently during the time of the assault.

“You saw the defendant’s penis. What was that?!” Miranda told the jury, according to the New York Post. “It is six years later. Do we have any idea of what she may have been seeing that night? What his manscaping was like at the time? What light was shining on it?”

Despite the prosecution’s protests, the jury ruled James was not guilty on all three counts of first-degree sexual assault.

Bussert, who has practiced law for about 20 years, disputes that he advised his client to expose himself to sensationalize the case or the evidence.

“I can fairly say I never envisioned this scenario in my career where something like this would come up,” he said. “Here it just seemed like the only real viable option … If I felt I had [another] really clear unimpeachable option that would have established the same point, I would have pursued it.”

The jury’s decision does not mean Bussert’s client left the courtroom freely, though. James was convicted last year for home invasion and sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl and is serving a 65-year sentence.

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.

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.

White Teen Who Lied About Being Raped By Two Black Men Now Says It Was The Cops’ Fault!

E5AB24FA-41CA-4816-A04E-B864AAD353E9

Mugshot

A white former college student in Connecticut who confessed to making up rape allegations against two black university football players, testified Wednesday that she never told investigators she was sexually assaulted, The Root reports.

This is in sharp contrast to what cops said the 19-year-old Nikki Yovino told them after she went through a rape testing kit at St. Vincent’s Medical Center. During a pretrial hearing in March, Yovino’s attorney, Ryan O’Neill, told Superior Court Judge William Holden, “Our defense is that these two young men did things to her that were a sexual assault and were against her will.”

But during her testimony before Judge Holden on Wednesday, the former Sacred Heart University student insisted at least four times that she never told Bridgeport Police Detective Walberto Cotto or other officers that she had been raped.

“I never told him [Cotto] I was sexually assaulted. I told him that something happened in the bathroom at the party with these two guys, that I didn’t want to happen,” Yovino testified.

Police said Yovino, who now works as a real estate agent, claimed she was raped by two black Sacred Heart University football players during an off-campus party in October 2016. Three months later, however, police said she admitted she had made the allegations up after she was pressed about inconsistencies in her statement.

The two young black men were forced to withdraw from the university after they were stripped of their athletic scholarships, according to The Root.
