Thug, 34, who beat up ‘very attractive’ transgender woman when he discovered she had male genitalia after she performed a sex act on him is jailed for 16 months

  • Suhel Sood, 34, attacked the woman at a party in Reading in November 2020
  • During a sexual encounter, Sood discovered that she had male genitals and savagely beat her, leaving her with two black eyes and a huge bruise on her leg
  • He admitted assault causing bodily harm and was cleared of sexual assault
  • Judge Emma Knott said Sood had shown ‘no real remorse’ over the attack

A man has been jailed for 16 months for beating up a transgender woman after discovering she had male genitalia.

Suhel Sood, 34, attacked his ‘attractive’ victim, who has not been named for legal reasons, during an encounter at a party in Reading in which she performed a sex act on him.

Sood reached down towards the woman’s privates and found that she had male genitalia, Reading Crown Court heard on Monday.

He roared: ‘You’re a man!’ before launching a brutal assault on the woman, punching her repeatedly and slamming her head down on a washing machine.

The victim was called a ‘dog’ and forced by Sood to mop up her own blood before he allowed her to leave the party on November 14 2020. 

She had arrived earlier in the evening with a married man who was believed to be her partner.

The court heard how the woman had been left with two black eyes and ‘one continuous huge bruise from the thigh to the knee.’ 

Sood was cleared of sexual assault but jailed for 16 months after he admitted assault causing actual bodily harm.

Prosecutor Oliver Weetch told the court that the assault ‘arose entirely from Mr Sood discovering that she [the victim] was transgender and thereafter assaulting her.’ 

Tom Holmes, defending, asked the judge not to sentence Sood on the basis that he targeted the victim based on prejudice.

‘His behaviour on that night was of course despicable. It gives an impression of him as a reckless, aggressive and frankly unlikable human being,’ Holmes said.

Judge Emma Knott told Sood he was ‘partying in a garage with others’ when the victim turned up with her partner – a married man who left early.

‘You were happy to entertain his girlfriend,’ the judge said

‘You were even happy to entertain his girlfriend after Billy went home to his wife. You were in the company of an attractive woman’.

In the course of consensual sexual activity, Sood discovered this ‘undeniably attractive woman was transgender’, the judge said.

‘And then things took a very ugly turn. You were perhaps fuelled by whiskey and cocaine and flew into a rage. From that moment, you had no concern at all for the woman.

‘You were concerned only by your own feelings. What you were concerned about was your reputation for fear of being a laughing stock. You sought to blame her. You threw words around like ‘deceit’. You accused her of raping you. There is no culpability on your part.

‘She is a woman, that is how she identifies.’

Judge Knott added: ‘Frankly, if you weren’t prepared to take the time to know more about her that is on you.

‘Maybe you will be a bit more careful in the future.

‘You discovered in your mind too late, you lost your temper. You hit her multiple times to the face, head and ear. Both eyes were black… her left eye was completely bloodshot. She had one continuous huge bruise from the thigh to the knee. And all of those were caused by you.

Speaking at Reading Crown Court (pictured) on Monday, Judge Emma Knott said Sood had ‘demonstrated no real remorse’ over the November 14 2020 attack

‘I am not sentencing you on the basis you inflicted those injuries with a spanner or a tool. You must have hit her very hard. This was a repeated and quite sustained assault… it must have been.

‘You have demonstrated no real remorse about your attack on her that night….. particularly that element of you making her clean up her own blood.

‘As if her transgender identity meant you would be contaminated by touching her own blood.’

The judge also noted Sood called his victim many names, including a ‘dog’.

Sood, of Reading, admitted assault occasioning actual bodily harm.

He was cleared of sexual assault, false imprisonment, attempting to cause grievous bodily harm charges and threats to kill.

Preacher and former alderman accused of sexual assault of an underage male child

The Camden Police Department is seeking information on the whereabouts of Phillip Michael Gordon, a preacher and former alderman for the City of Camden, wanted for 1st degree sexual assault.

Gordon is described as a black male, 5’11” tall weighing 205 lbs with black hair and brown eyes,

Please call 836-5755 if you have any information.

According to a report from the Camden Police Department, on March 14 2021 an officer was dispatched to the lobby of the Camden Police Department to make contact with a juvenile male who was accompanied by his mother and grandmother.

The juvenile stated that he was picked up from his house around 10:45 p.m.or 11:00 p.m. by Gordon. The juvenile stated that Gordon had been mentoring him since last October when they met at the juvenile’s mother’s wedding. He stated that Gordon was helping him cope with anger problems.

According to the report, Gordon brought the juvenile back to Gordon’s residence, where the juvenile got tired and went to sleep on the couch. Due to couch being cluttered, Gordon told the juvenile to go to sleep in his bed. The juvenile said he awoke later to Gordon engaging in oral sex with him and that there was semen on the juvenile’s shirt.

The juvenile stated he then hit Gordon in the head causing Gordon to leave and then go to a bathroom. The juvenile called his grandfather stating that “he touched me” and he needed to leave Gordon’s house. The juvenile told Gordon that he needed to go home because he was in trouble. According to the juvenile, Gordon told him “don’t tell anyone.”

The juvenile’s shirt was handed over to CPD as evidence and a sexual assault kit was obtained. At some point in time, cheek swabs were conducted on Gordon, as well as hair samples taken.

On June 15, Judge Hamilton Singleton issued a warrant for Gordon’s arrest.

7-year-old charged with rape, lawyer calls it ‘absurd’

BRASHER FALLS, N.Y. (WWNY) – A 7-year-old boy from Brasher Falls has been charged with rape.

State police didn’t release much information, but said the unidentified child was charged with third-degree rape on March 23.

Troopers say the incident was reported on Thanksgiving.

The child was cited and released. The case will be handled in Family Court.

Police say the investigation is continuing.

We spoke with a New York City attorney, who is with a group that handles youth defense cases.

“Instinctually, it shouldn’t happen that a 7 year old – I don’t think you even could really realize what you’re doing at 7 years old. So I think it’s absurd to charge a 7 year old with rape. They’d have to prove he actually physically committed this act, which to me it almost seems to be an impossibility,” said Anthony Martone, Queens Defenders, felony youth defense unit director.

He said it appears the boy is being charged as a juvenile delinquent. A bill pending in Albany would change the minimum age for being charged as a juvenile delinquent from 7 to 12.

Cosby’s sex assault conviction goes before high-level court

FILE – In this April 26, 2018 file photo, Bill Cosby, center, leaves the the Montgomery County Courthouse in Norristown, Pa., after being convicted of drugging and molesting a woman. The actor has spent more than two years in prison since he was convicted of sexual assault in the first celebrity trial of the #MeToo era. Now the Pennsylvania Supreme Court is set to hear his appeal of the conviction on Tuesday, Dec. 1, 2020. The arguments will focus on the trial judge’s decision to let five other accusers testify for the prosecution. (AP Photo/Matt Slocum, File)

PHILADELPHIA – Pennsylvania’s highest court questioned Tuesday whether Bill Cosby’s alleged history of intoxicating and sexually assaulting young women amounted to a signature crime pattern, given studies that show as many as half of all sexual assaults involve drugs or alcohol. Cosby, 83, hopes to overturn his 2018 sex assault conviction because the judge let prosecutors call five other accusers who said Cosby mistreated them the same way he did his victim, Andrea Constand. The defense said their testimony prejudiced the jury against the actor and should not have been allowed.

“That conduct you describe — the steps, the young women — there’s literature that says that’s common to 50% of these assaults — thousands of assaults — nationwide,” Chief Justice Thomas G. Saylor asked a prosecutor during oral arguments in the Pennsylvania Supreme Court. “So how can that be a common scheme?”

The prosecutor, in response, offered more precise details about the relationships, saying Cosby used his fame and fortune to mentor the women and then took advantage of it. And he sometimes befriended their mothers or families.

“There was a built-in level of trust because of his status in the entertainment industry and because he held himself out as a public moralist,” said Assistant District Attorney Adrienne Jappe, of suburban Philadelphia’s Montgomery County, where Constand says she was assaulted at Cosby’s estate in 2004.

“The signature was isolating and intoxicating young women for the purpose of sexually assaulting them,” Jappe said.

Cosby has served more than two years of his three- to 10-year prison sentence for drugging and molesting Constand, whom he met through the basketball program at his alma mater, Temple University. 

Courts have long wrestled with decisions about when other accusers should be allowed to testify in criminal cases. It’s generally not allowed, but state law permits a few exceptions, including to show a signature crime pattern or to prove someone’s identity. The state’s high court appears eager to address the issue, and in doing so took on the first celebrity criminal case of the #MeToo era. The court typically takes several months to issue its opinion.

Judge Steven T. O’Neill had allowed just one other accuser to testify at Cosby’s first trial in 2017, when the jury could not reach a verdict. The #MeToo movement took hold months later with media reports about movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and other men accused of sexual misconduct.

O’Neill then let five other accusers testify at Cosby’s retrial in 2018, when the jury convicted him of drugging and sexually assaulting Constand.

Cosby’s appellate lawyer, Jennifer Bonjean, said prosecutors exploited “all of this vague testimony” about his prior behavior and his acknowledgement that he had given women alcohol or quaaludes before sexual encounters. 

“They put Mr. Cosby in a position where he had no shot. The presumption of innocence just didn’t exist for him,” Bonjean said in the arguments Tuesday, which were held online because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Constand went to police in 2005, about a year after the night at his home. The other women knew Cosby in the 1980s through the entertainment industry, and they did not go to police.

The defense also challenged the trial judge’s decision to let the jury hear damaging testimony Cosby gave in a lawsuit Constand filed against him in 2005, after then-prosecutor Bruce Castor declined to arrest Cosby.

The testimony was sealed for nearly a decade until The Associated Press asked a federal judge to release documents from the case as more Cosby accusers came forward. The judge agreed, and Castor’s successor reopened the case in 2015, just months before the statute of limitations to arrest him would have expired.

Cosby, a once-beloved comedian and actor known as “America’s Dad,” has said he will serve his entire 10-year term rather than admit wrongdoing to the parole board. 

Criminal law professor Laurie Levenson believes it’s important for the court to scrutinize Cosby’s conviction given the publicity the case attracted, the legal questions it raised and the potential influence of the #MeToo movement. 

However, she was less sure there’s data to show that intoxication was as prevalent in sex assault cases in the 1980s through 2004 as it is today.

“We have heard a lot more about doping types of sexual assaults (recently), but I’m not sure how common it was at the time of this offense,” said Levenson, of Loyola Law School. “I think the court’s doing the right thing, which is asking, ‘Did he get convicted on legitimate evidence?'”

The AP does not typically identify sexual assault victims without their permission, which Constand has granted.

Now later this evening Rudy Giuliani read Hunter Biden’s email to his dad about sexting naked with a 14-year-old girl while smoking crack.

Rudy Giuliani: Well, here is a very, very sensitive one. It’s a text message to his father in which he says the following. In which he says the following, and he’s discussing his sister-in-law who for quite some time was his lover. And he says, “She told my therapist I was sexually inappropriate.” This would be with an unnamed 14-year-old girl. When she says I face-timed naked with the unnamed 14-year-old girl. And the reason she can’t have her out to see me is because I walk around naked smoking crack talking Tom Girls(?) on Face time. When she was pressed she said the unnamed 14-year-old-girl never said anything like that but the bottom line is that I created and caused a very unsafe environment for the kids.

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.

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.

PASTOR SAID HE WAS SUCKING DEMONS OUT OF MEN HE SEXUALLY ASSAULTED, LAWSUIT CLAIMS

A Presbyterian minister in New Jersey is accused of sexually assaulting several parishioners under the guise of exorcising evil spirits.

Three men have come forward claiming Rev. Dr. William Weaver performed sex acts on them when they came to him for private counseling at Linden Presbyterian Church. Weaver, 69, would allegedly tell the men that he needed to “suck” out demons through their semen, citing Native American rituals and a verse from Ephesians telling Christians to “put on the full armor of God.”

According to impact statements the men submitted to the Presbytery of Elizabeth, which has jurisdiction over the church in Linden, Weaver would order each to strip naked and lie down. Then he would place an “angel coin” on their foreheads and have them balance stones on their hands and ankles.

Weaver would then allegedly perform oral sex on them.

One man, A.J. Meeker, says he started seeing Weaver about family problems in 2000, when he was 20. “I refuse to stay silent any longer,” he wrote in his statement. “I need to make sure that this never happens to anyone else ever again.”

Another man, Jared Staunton, said that after his assault, Weaver “lifted my head up and looked into my eyes, and said, ‘You don’t have to be afraid anymore, I’m your protector now.'”

With that, Staunton said, the minister kissed him on the lips.

In addition to working at Linden Presbyterian for 39 years, Weaver also served as chaplain for the local chapter of the Vietnam Veterans Association. Audrey Pereira, a representative for the chapter, described him as “a Jekyll and Hyde.”

“He did good on one hand,” she told My Central Jersey. “On the other hand, he did this evil to who knows how many. It can’t just have been these guys. There has to be more.”

An investigation by the Presbytery found credible evidence of “multiple acts of idolatry and sexual misconduct.” It also reportedly uncovered gay porn on a church-owned computer in Weaver’s office.

A church trial was set to start on January 25, but Weaver renounced the Presbytery and its jurisdiction the day before. He has subsequently moved to a gated retirement community in Lakewood, about an hour away from Linden.

Illegal Immigrants Drive Child Sex Crime Charges in North Carolina

North Carolina data indicates massive hidden problem nationwide

In North Carolina, during the past 18 months, more than 331 illegal aliens have been charged with 1,172 child rapes and child sexual assaults, according to data collected by an independent researcher.

James Johnson, who tracks the data on his website NCFIRE.info (North Carolinians For Immigration Reform and Enforcement), says he is only able to gather data from 30 of the state’s 100 counties, which means it’s likely the statewide count is significantly higher.

Johnson has tracked rapes and sexual assaults on children by illegal aliens since 2013, using original police reports and calling arresting agencies to verify immigration status. His data doesn’t cover every month, but for the 54 months he has recorded, an average of 34 illegal aliens per month were charged with 151 counts of raping or sexually assaulting a child in North Carolina.

Further, a study shows that only 12 percent of child rapes are reported, according to the National Sexual Violence Resource Center—meaning the total number could be almost 10 times higher.

“It’s happening in every state—we just happen to be compiling the information. It’s a mess,” Johnson told The Epoch Times.

“The ones that I cannot confirm as being illegal aliens, I do not put in the reports. So, our reports are obviously on the low side every month because we can’t get around to every county, every arrest report, and we can’t verify every one that we come across.”

He said that in the last six years, he has only had to pull three reports off the site due to receiving incorrect information from the arresting agency.

National Issue

No federal database exists publicly for illegal alien crime against children, so it’s difficult to get a handle on the severity of the issue nationally.

But Texas has almost three times the population of North Carolina, and California has almost four times, according to Census estimates.

If the monthly rate of reported child sexual offenses committed by illegal aliens in North Carolina is estimated to be 113 illegal aliens charged with around 503 child sexual crimes, that would put Texas at roughly 330 illegal aliens charged with 1,500 child sex crimes per month, and California at 450 illegal aliens charged with more than 2,000 crimes against children every month.

Many Cases

The crimes listed on the NCFIRE website range from rape to indecent exposure.

In May, Jeremias Rafael Deleon-Sales was arrested in Hanover County and charged with statutory rape of a 4- to 6-year-old child.

Just last month, in Orange County, Reyes Rivera-Zapata was arrested and charged with first-degree kidnapping, two counts of first-degree statutory sex offense, and two counts of indecent liberties with a child.

Ignacio Cortez Macedo was convicted in Mecklenburg County in April of three counts of forcible sex offense on a 13-year-old girl, among other charges.

A man in Guilford County, Miguel Alberto Guerra-alba, was arrested in April and charged with seven counts of first-degree rape by a guardian.

In January, two illegal aliens were charged with rape of a child under 6 years old; another was charged with 60 felonies, 14 counts of rape with an under-15-year-old and 19 counts of crimes against nature; another man was charged with molesting five girls aged between 4 and 12.

The impact of sexual abuse on children is usually lifelong and profound, according to a research report by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine.

Sexually abused children often exhibit symptoms including fear, nightmares, post-traumatic stress disorder, withdrawn behavior, neurotic mental illness, cruelty, delinquency, sexually inappropriate behavior, regressive behavior, running away, general problem behaviors, and self-injurious behavior, the report states.

‘A Lot Worse Than What People May Think’

Johnson, a retired electrician, said when he first launched the website, he attempted to record all crimes committed by illegal aliens after he noticed the prevalence.

“It just got to be incredibly difficult and impossible to do. And I wasn’t getting much traction with it as far as our North Carolina legislators were concerned,” he said. “So I started to think, ‘Well, you know what? These child rapes, that’s about as bad as it gets. I can’t think of a worse crime. If this doesn’t get their attention, I don’t know what will.’”

He switched focus in 2013 to sex crimes against children and has spent at least 40 hours a week since on finding and verifying his information.

Every month, Johnson sends out a report to North Carolina legislators and more than 350 media outlets, “and it’s crickets—nothing, nobody.”

Johnson said the problem is a lot worse than what people may think, and he blames the government and media for not highlighting the issue enough.

“If the public knew how much this was actually happening, first of all, they’d be just shocked. And secondly, I think there would be a revolt,” he said.

He said after six years of sifting through arrest records, he has noticed that illegal aliens rape children four times more often than U.S. citizens.

“Just from my observations, this specific crime of child rape, illegal aliens tend to commit child rapes at a rate of four to one, compared to citizens,” Johnson said. He also said more Mexicans are charged with sex crimes against children in North Carolina, which he puts down to there simply being more illegal aliens from Mexico in the state.

“We have a lot of agriculture and farms in North Carolina. And that’s where they initially started coming from,” he said.

Johnson said the goal of documenting the crimes is to put enough pressure on legislators to enforce immigration laws. “Just plain and simply. Immigrants are fine, illegal aliens are not.”

In June, more than 3,100 illegal immigrants were apprehended each day by Border Patrol along the southern border, according to statistics from Customs and Border Protection.

A caravan of around 3,300 individuals that traveled to the U.S.-border from Honduras in January contained at least 860 criminals who had been convicted in the United States, according to ICE data provided to House Oversight and Reform Committee Republican members on May 17.

The individuals’ criminal histories included almost 30 convicted of sexual offenses, 20 convicted of assault or aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, two convicted of violence against law enforcement, and one convicted of attempted murder.

Rep. Mark Walker (R-N.C.) said he’s concerned about all threats to the security of children and families in North Carolina, which is partly why he sits on the House Homeland Security Committee.

“The lawlessness that we are seeing at our border, matched with radical calls to abolish our immigration law enforcement agencies is dangerous and threatens all of our communities,” Walker said via email on July 16. “Congress needs to secure the border and fix our immigration system, while calling out Democrats who are completely and irresponsibly absent from those efforts.”

The remainder of North Carolina’s 11 federal representatives and two senators didn’t respond to requests for comment.

Sanctuaries

Six counties in North Carolina have enacted sanctuary policies, which shield illegal aliens from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), according to the Center for Immigration Studies, which tracks sanctuary jurisdictions nationwide. The counties are Buncombe County, Durham County, Forsyth County, Mecklenburg County, Orange County, and Wake County.

Forsyth County Sheriff Bobby Kimbrough said in February that he won’t honor ICE detainers that request correctional facilities to hold an illegal alien for up to 48 hours longer so ICE can take custody.

Mecklenburg County Sheriff Garry McFadden goes one step further and also refuses to notify ICE when the jail is releasing an inmate with a detainer. He says ICE still has access to the jail database and can find that out for themselves.

So far, during McFadden’s tenure, three illegal aliens have been released from jail despite ICE placing detainers on them, according to a report released by ICE.

A 40-year-old Guatemalan was arrested and charged in October 2018 for multiple counts of indecent liberties with a child, rape, and other sex offenses. He was released from the Mecklenburg County Jail in Charlotte, North Carolina, in March, despite a detainer from ICE being placed soon after his arrest in 2018. ICE has since tracked him down and detained him.

The jail also arrested a 30-year-old Mexican man for child sex crimes in December 2018 and released him in January, despite an ICE detainer being placed.

A third case occurred in May, when the Mecklenburg County Jail ignored another ICE detainer and released a 19-year-old Honduran man charged with indecent liberties with a child. He is still at large.

A bill that is currently moving through the state legislature aims to require all local law enforcement to cooperate with ICE. However, Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper has indicated he will veto the bill, HB370, if it gets to his desk.
