FBI internal affairs chief pleads guilty

— The former chief internal watchdog at the FBI has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl and has admitted he had a history of molesting other children before he joined the bureau for a two-decade career.

John H. Conditt Jr., 53, who retired in 2001, was sentenced last Friday to 12 years in prison in Tarrant County court in Fort Worth, after he admitted he molested the daughter of two FBI agents after he retired. He acknowledged molesting at least two other girls before his law enforcement career, his lawyer said.

Conditt sought treatment for sex offenders after his arrest last year, said his attorney, Toby Goldsmith.

"The problem these people have is they don't really feel like it is their fault," Goldsmith said. "The treatment doesn't work unless you admit you are the one who instigated it, and he did that."

Conditt headed the internal affairs unit that investigates agent wrongdoing for the Office of Professional Responsibility at FBI headquarters in Washington from 1999 until his retirement in June 2001, the FBI said. He wrote articles in law enforcement journals on how police agencies could effectively investigate their own conduct.

FBI officials said Tuesday they had no information to suggest that Conditt had any problems during his career and he was never the subject of an investigation.

Goldsmith said he was concerned about the safety of his client in prison given that he is a former FBI agent and an admitted child molester. "He's not going to be comfortable in the penitentiary," the lawyer said.

Goldsmith said his client had admitted that he had molested at least two other girls before he became an FBI agent more than 30 years ago, but that there was no evidence of any wrongdoing while he served in the bureau.

"It seems that he never did because he had stricter control at that time," the lawyer said.

Conditt could have faced life in prison, and prosecutors requested he get 50 years. The judge sentenced him to 12 years in prison, in part citing Conditt's decision to spare the victim the trauma of a trial, Goldsmith said.

Conditt's conviction is the latest controversy to strike the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility.

Last year, FBI Director Robert Mueller transferred the head of the office to another supervisory assignment outside Washington

Mentors come from all walks of life. The Montgomery County Youth Service Bureau’s Juvenile Mentoring Program has a diverse selection of mentors. Some mentors are retired, some are young professionals, some are married with young children and some are empty-nesters. The main requirement for someone wishing to mentor is willingness to be a difference in a child’s life.

The process to becoming a mentor includes a written application, three character references, a sit-down interview with program staff, an FBI and local criminal history background check, a driving records check and a volunteer training which teaches you how

D.C. police officer and pastor charged with sexually abusing teenager

March 17 at 12:03 AM
A D.C. police officer who was also a pastor was charged Monday with sexually abusing a teenager who attended the church that he led.

Darrell Best, 45, of Upper Marlboro was arrested in Largo at about 9 p.m. Monday, two days after the teen came forward to report the abuse, according to a D.C. police press release. Best was charged with first-degree sex abuse of a minor.

The police statement said that the victim, who is 16, told police that Best was her pastor at God-A Second Chance Ministry Church and that he abused her three times, starting in December. Police obtained a warrant for Best’s arrest the next day.

A website lists Best as senior pastor at the non-denominational church on Southern Avenue SE.

D.C. Police spokeswoman Gwen Crump said that Best has served on the police force for 25 years, and is now on administrative leave.

DOJ Report Reveals DEA Agent "Sex Parties" Funded by Colombian Drug Cartels

March 26, 2015 | 7:40 pm

Life is tough for American drug enforcement agents in Latin America. After billions of dollars and decades spent fighting the drug war from Mexico to Patagonia, more drugs than ever are flowing north. According to a bombshell report by the Department of Justice, agents in Colombia found a novel solution to their problems: if they couldn't beat the cartels, they would take part in cartel-funded "sex parties" with prostitutes and pay regular visits to brothels while stationed in the country.

The report, released on Thursday by the DOJ's Office of the Inspector General, found that four US agencies involved in the drug war in Colombia — the Drug Enforcement Administration, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the US Marshals Services — did not properly address allegations of sexual misconduct committed by their agents in the country. Among the four, the DEA was found to have engaged in some of the most inappropriate behavior, including sexual bacchanals, and then failed to comply with the Justice Department's inquiries.

Investigators looked at conduct between 2009 and 2012, but highlighted incidents that took place as early as 2005. Among their most noteworthy findings are allegations that 10 DEA agents stationed in Colombia "solicited prostitutes and engaged in other serious misconduct." A Colombian police officer allegedly used funds from "local drug cartels" to arrange sex romps for the agents that were held "at their government-leased headquarters" over several years.

The orgies gave new meaning to the phrase 'high-risk sexual behavior.'

DEA supervisors in Colombia were reportedly aware of the parties and received complaints from building managers about the noise they emitted. According to the report, the agency's regional director "justified the failure to report the allegations by stating that the matter was a management issue." Visits that DEA agents allegedly paid to local brothels were also not reported.

Some of the agents implicated in the debauchery claimed to have been unaware of the fact that drug lords had subsidized their recreational activities, but the Justice Department's investigation determined that they "should have known the prostitutes in attendance were paid with cartel funds."

In addition to soliciting prostitutes and having their sexual encounters paid for, three DEA supervisory special agents allegedly received "money, expensive gifts, and weapons from drug cartel members." Seven of the ten agents eventually admitted that they were present at the parties. The DEA handed out suspensions of 2 to 10 days.

"The DEA Inspector told us that prostitution is considered a part of the local culture and is tolerated in certain areas called 'tolerance zones,' " the report says. "According to the Inspector, it is common for prostitutes to be present at business meetings involving cartel members and foreign officers. The DEA Inspector also stated that the acceptability of this type of behavior affects the way in which federal law enforcement employees conduct themselves in this particular country."

'Of all the different drug war agencies, the DEA has been the most obstinate and the most obnoxious.'

The DOJ report warns that in addition to being a breach of US policy, the orgies gave new meaning to the phrase "high-risk sexual behavior."

"The fact that most of the 'sex parties' occurred in government-leased quarters where agents' laptops, BlackBerry devices, and other government-issued equipment were present created potential security risks for the DEA and for the agents who participated in the parties, potentially exposing them to extortion, blackmail, or coercion," it says.

Inspectors were not reassured that a Colombian officer claimed that he had protected their weapons and other property while the agents engaged with the sex workers.

"Prostitutes in agents' quarters could easily have had access to sensitive DEA equipment and information," it states.

Related: Facebook Tells the DEA That Fake Accounts and Covert Ops Are Not Welcome

Across the four agencies reviewed by the inspector general, investigators found "relatively few reported allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct." That's the good news.

Now the bad news: Of the 258 allegations of sexual misconduct and harassment committed by FBI agents reviewed by the DOJ, the Department of Justice found that in 32 cases "FBI supervisors failed to report allegations" to the agency's Inspection Division. The report concludes that "the handling of these allegations revealed some significant systemic issues with the components' processes that we believe require prompt corrective action."

The report points out that both the FBI and the DEA were not forthcoming when investigators requested information from the agencies.

"Therefore, we cannot be completely confident that the FBI and DEA provided us with all information relevant to this review," the report says.

DOJ spokesperson Patrick Rodenbush gave a statement to VICE News saying that the department "is already working with the law enforcement components to ensure a zero-tolerance policy on sexual harassment and misconduct is enforced and that incidents are properly reported."

The allegations in the DOJ report follows a separate investigation by the Department of Homeland Security and the US military into reports that Secret Service agents and members of the armed forces purchased the services of sex workers while preparing for a presidential visit to Colombia in 2012.

The American government has had a heavy drug enforcement presence in Colombia since the introduction of Plan Colombia, a $9 billion military aid package intended to bolster the fight against drug cartels in the country, in 2000.

"There's a long history of sexual abuse illegal activity — not just by the DEA, but by the military and contractors," Sanho Tree, director of the Drug Policy Project at the Institute for Policy Studies, told VICE News. "I think of all the different drug war agencies, the DEA has been the most obstinate and the most obnoxious."

In 2000, the State Department estimated that around 90 percent of all cocaine in the US originated from Colombia. Critics of America's drug war effort point out that after fifteen years of interdiction and crop destruction, that figure remains roughly the same.

Former FBI agent suggested prosecuting convicted pedophile in Etan Patz case

Updated March 27, 2015 8:31 PM

Testifying at the Etan Patz murder trial as a witness for defendant Pedro Hernandez, a prominent former FBI agent who once headed the Sept. 11, 2001, investigation said Friday she had recommended prosecution of a different man in the 6-year-old's 1979 disappearance.

Mary Galligan, who handled the Etan probe in the early 1990s before moving on to a lead role in FBI terror cases, said the work of two informants convinced her in 1991 that convicted pedophile Jose Ramos, a friend of a woman who walked Etan to school, should be charged by the Manhattan district attorney.

Galligan, now a private-sector cybercrime specialist, was not allowed to detail her opinions by Manhattan Supreme Court Justice Maxwell Wiley, and later was told by an FBI official not to answer when reporters asked whether she still felt Ramos was the culprit.

"You know what my answer would be," she said, smiling, before declining to comment.

Etan vanished in SoHo on May 25, 1979. Hernandez, 53, a former bodega worker from Maple Shade, New Jersey, was charged by the district attorney after saying in a disputed 2012 confession that he strangled Etan in the bodega's basement.

Defense lawyers contend the confession was a delusion caused by mental problems. This week, they pivoted to casting suspicion on Ramos, calling Galligan, former federal prosecutor Stuart GraBois and prison informant Jeffrey Rothschild to re-create the federal case and tell jurors about Ramos' purported confessions and near-confessions.

Galligan, a 25-year FBI veteran who once headed the New York office, said she and GraBois decided to use informants to get an explicit confession after Ramos admitted he was "90 percent sure" a boy he had sex with on May 25, 1979, and put on a subway to Washington Heights was Etan.

She said Rothschild's reports of admissions by Ramos that the boy was in fact Etan "appeared to be truthful." But she said technical problems got in the way of surreptitiously catching Ramos on tape, and he was coy when she met him.

"OK, it could have been Etan Patz," Ramos said, according to Galligan. "But even if it was Etan Patz, I put him on a subway for Washington Heights and we should

Damages Are Awarded To 2 Sisters for Sexual Abuse


May 18, 1990

DENVER, May 17— Two women were awarded $1.2 million each from a jury that found that their father, a former Federal agent and child abuse expert, had sexually abused and beaten them when they were growing up.

The sisters, Susan Hammond, 44 years old, and Sharon Simone, 45, sued their father, Edward Rodgers, 72, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent and a nationally known child abuse expert, for abuse suffered as children and young adults.

Mr. Rodgers cannot be criminally charged because Colorado's statute of limitations for sexual assault on children is 10 years. The limit for a civil lawsuit is two years, but jurors determined that the sisters became aware of the nature and extent of their injury only within the past two years, during therapy.

Neither Mr. Rodgers nor his attorney was present during the trial. Mr. Rodgers recently dismissed his attorney, Thomas D. Gresham, who said this week that he has been unable to locate his client since April 24.

Testimony from Mr. Rodgers was contained in depositions.

Mrs. Simone, of Massachusetts, and Mrs. Hammond, of California, say they are unable to have intimate sexual relationships with their husbands.

In a deposition, Mr. Rodgers admitted that he hit his wife and may have hit his children, but said he did not remember doing so.

Mrs. Hammond testified that her mother sent her away to school because she feared her father might kill her and that he raped her when she returned home from the school at age 19.



Retired FBI agent : Parents should watch for warning signs of online risks

Published On: March 31 2015

The case of a 13-year-old Henry County girl who went to New Mexico with a 55-year-old man after a prolonged online relationship has grabbed attention of parents who want to protect their own children from potential online danger.

Specially trained FBI agents said they were able to use forensic software to track the communications between Hannah Sue Kennish and Ray Vallia, but parents don't have access to those types of tools.

Retired FBI agent Michael Tabman said parents need to look for red flags in their child's behavior to best determine if they're wading into dangerous behavior on the Internet.

Before sitting down for an interview with KMBC 9 News, Tabman set up new accounts on Pinterest and Kik, two platforms that Kennish and Vallia used to communicate.

"If I was a predator, I could come on here as a young boy or young girl and try to meet with someone who is my age or the age I'm pretending to be," Tabman said. "You lure them into a relationship and you eventually talk them into meeting you for illegal and unethical purposes."

For the demonstration, Tabman portrayed himself as a 20-year-old man and immediately drew people wanting to chat. He was

FBI agent doesn't have to register as sex offender for peeping Tom incidents in Hershey, elsewhere, court says


on July 11, 2014 at 1:55 PM, updated July 11, 2014 at 2:06 PM

A former FBI agent who admitted sneaking into bathrooms to watch girls and women use toilets doesn't have to register as a sex offender, the state Superior Court has ruled.

The decision, issued this week in response to a plea by Ryan Seese, comes nearly four years after the Derry Township man was sentenced to 1 to 23 months in Dauphin County Prison, plus 3 years of probation, for committing the crimes at the Hershey Middle School and a private gym.

In its ruling, the Superior Court concluded that Seese isn't subject to sex offender registration because of amendments the state Legislature made to the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, which took effect two years after his sentencing.

Seese pleaded guilty and no contest in 2010 to three charges of invasion of privacy and pleaded guilty to additional counts of criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. Police said two adult women were the victims in the incident in the women's locker room at the private gym and that Seese spied on two teens in a girl's bathroom during a concert at the middle school.

Police coverups of children sexually abused

Police watchdog expands inquiry into alleged cover-up of paedophile network

IPCC announces further 12 investigations into allegations of corruption in Met police – bringing total to 30 inquiries

Thursday 17 September 2015 09.34 EDT Last modified on Thursday 17 September 2015 09.48 EDT

The police watchdog is to broaden its investigation into claims Scotland Yard covered up a network of high-profile paedophiles dating back to the 1970s, after a significant increase in allegations made by retired officers.

The Independent Police Complaints Commission is examining 30 allegations of police corruption in the handling of child abuse claims, including allegations that special branch and senior police officers intervened to block investigations into VIPs and politicians.

The IPCC announced 12 more investigations into the Metropolitan police’s handling of abuse claims on Wednesday, adding to 17 that were announced earlier this year. Another allegation has been made against Essex police, bringing the total to 3o.


The majority of the investigations stem from allegations made by retired Met officers, the watchdog said. Among the new investigations, one concerns allegations that a prosecution against a government official over child sexual abuse images was dropped on the instructions of senior officers and lawyers.

Another concerns allegations that high-ranking officers prematurely shut down an investigation into a south-west London paedophile ring in the 1970s.

A separate investigation has been launched into claims that an MP was arrested and then released without charge following an inquiry into a south London paedophile ring in the 80s. It is alleged that officers were threatened with breaking the Official Secrets Act if they spoke of the events.

The investigations are to be conducted by the internal professional standards departments at the Met and the Essex force but will be overseen by the IPCC. However, Scotland Yard revealed a further 18 allegations have been referred to the police watchdog and the force is waiting on a decision.

“We would encourage anyone who has information or knowledge of how these historical cases were investigated to come forward and assist with the investigations,” a spokeswoman for the Met said.


Among the most recent wave of allegations to be looked at by the IPCC is that evidence relating to child abuse at a youth club in the 1980s and 90s that involved politicians and council officers went missing from a London police station.

Another claim alleges that an MP was charged with specimen child sex offences and not more numerous or serious offences. It has also been alleged that special branch made attempts in the 70s to interfere in an investigation that would have revealed an MP’s involvement in child sex offences.

A further claim contends that an allegation of child sex abuse in central London in the 80s was halted when it became apparent that an MP was involved.

Other allegations referred to the watchdog in March arose during Operation Fairbank, Scotland Yard’s investigation into allegations that establishment figures abused children at Elm Guest House in Barnes, south-west London, during the 70s and 80s.

Investigators are also examining claims that Essex police failed to examine intelligence provided by a witness that an MP was involved in child sexual abuse.

Separately, the future of Operation Midland, Scotland Yard’s investigation into an alleged ring of high-profile paedophiles, is in the balance. The force is considering the findings of a review of the inquiry, and there have been reports that the evidence of its key witness may be in doubt.

The operation was set up by the Met nearly a year ago to examine claims that boys were systematically abused in the 70s and 80s by figures from politics, the military and security services at locations across southern England, including the Dolphin Square estate in south-west London.

Detectives have faced calls to shelve Midland, which is based on the testimony of one witness, known only as Nick, once described by police as “credible and true”. Recent reports have suggested faith in his evidence has weakened.

It has now emerged that Scotland Yard launched a review of Midland in April. The review concluded at the end of last month and the findings are now being considered.

A Met spokesman said: “An internal review of Operation Midland was commissioned on 8 April 2015. It is routine for investigations of this nature to be reviewed in this way. The review was carried out, with the full report submitted on 25 August. The product of this review is under consideration.

“We are not prepared to comment on the review in any detail at this time as Midland is an ongoing investigation.”

On Tuesday, Ken Macdonald QC, the former director of public prosecutions, said detectives investigating historical child abuse allegations should not indulge “narcissists and fantasists”.

Nigel Evans MP, the former Commons deputy speaker who was acquitted of rape and sexual assault charges last year, criticised police for playing “judge and jury” over Nick’s allegations before the investigation had concluded.

Nick’s claims formed part of the allegations put to Harvey Proctor, the former Conservative MP, during a police interview. At a press conference last month Proctor said he was completely innocent and accused police of a witch-hunt against homosexuals.

He disclosed that he had been questioned about his alleged involvement in a paedophile ring with the former prime minister Edward Heath and the former home secretary Leon Brittan.

Nick has claimed MPs and other high-profile figures were linked to the alleged murder of three children aged seven to 16 between the mid-70s and mid-80s, including that of a child who was run down by a car.

At a press conference last year, DS Kenny McDonald, who heads up Operation Midland, said he believed Nick’s evidence to be “credible and true”. But McDonald in recent we

Rape victim sues city for $3 million after NYPD cop investigating sex assault allegedly groped her

, September 30, 2015, 12:44 PM

The 25-year-old woman who got drunk in Seattle with NYPD cops investigating her sexual assault has sued for $3 million.


The 25-year-old woman who got drunk in Seattle with NYPD cops investigating her sexual assault has sued for $3 million.
A 25-year-old woman who said she was sexually assaulted has sued the NYPD, charging that two Special Victims Unit cops investigating her case took her out drinking in Seattle before one of them groped her in bed.

The woman, whose name the Daily News is withholding, seeks $3 million from the city for Lt. Adam Lamboy and Detective Lucasz Skorzewski's "gross and repugnant dereliction" of duty, according to her suit filed in Manhattan Federal Court.

The cops' boorish behavior began July 5, 2013, when they interviewed the woman in Seattle about the sexual assault she said occurred on Jan. 6, 2013, at the hands of an acquaintance.

After the interview, Skorzewski and Lamboy encouraged her to join them and a female NYPD officer for lunchtime whiskey drinks on the Seattle waterfront.

FBI workers accused of spying on dressing room used by teenage girls undressing for prom evening
on April 20, 2009 at 6:49 PM, updated April 20, 2009 at 8:06 PM


MORGANTOWN, W.Va. -- Two FBI workers are accused of using surveillance equipment to spy on teenage girls as they undressed and tried on prom gowns at a charity event at a West Virginia mall.

More national news: Cleveland.com/nation
The FBI employees have been charged with conspiracy and committing criminal invasion of privacy. They were working in an FBI satellite control room at the mall when they positioned a camera on temporary changing rooms and zoomed in for at least 90 minutes on girls dressing for the Cinderella Project fashion show, Marion County Prosecutor Pat Wilson said Monday.

Gary Sutton Jr., 40, of New Milton and Charles Hommema of Buckhannon have been charged with the misdemeanors and face fines and up to a year in jail on each charge if convicted. Sutton has been released on bond, Wilson said, and Hommema is to be arraigned later this week. Wilson did not know Hommema's age.

Child sex case dropped, but a life still left in ruins

On June 8 last year, the life that American engineer Christopher Lee Hobbs had been building for himself and his family came tumbling down. The 56-year-old was arrested in Pattaya on six counts of molesting two underage boys — a Thai and a Cambodian — and faced the prospect of 42 years in prison.

Published: 11/10/2015 at 01:16 AM

He was paraded before local and national media and police and his NGO accusers were lauded for catching a child abuser.

But more than one year later police and the Pattaya Prosecutor’s Office determined the case was a wrongful arrest. It was found that convicted American paedophile Steven Strike, wanted on sex offences in Hawaii, had been living in the Pattaya townhouse where the boys alleged they were abused on one occasion.

Mr Hobbs believes that the case against him was not only one of mistaken identity, but also a “sting” operation involving US FBI agents, local police and a Pattaya-based NGO specialising in child protection, to boost their standing. He is now trying to launch multiple lawsuits seeking hundreds of millions of baht in compensation for damage to his reputation.

Mr Hobbs had spent four years in Thailand prior to his arrest, working for a Japanese multinational which did sub-contracting work for major companies and agencies such as the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand. He earned an annual salary of seven million baht and married a Thai woman, Somporn, 36, who he has a son with.

“All I really want is a simple apology after what they have put me through,” Mr Hobbs told Spectrum. “When the police held the press conference and spread the false information, it seemed so easy to do.

“But now that I have won that case and proved that I am not guilty, no one cares about helping me gain my reputation back.”


During the working week, Mr Hobbs’ main residence was a condo on Sukhumvit Soi 11 in Bangkok. After the birth of his son in 2011, he decided he didn’t want his child to grow up in a big city. He bought a home in South Pattaya, which was run as a guesthouse, earning income for the family on top of the restaurant they already owned in his wife’s name.

Mr Hobbs, who also holds Canadian citizenship, was busy at his job in Bangkok and says he only visited his family, who had relocated to Pattaya, every other weekend. In a police interview, a close Bangkok friend of Mr Hobbs, identified only as Stefan, said the engineer was working 12-hour days and had little time for socialising apart from “one to two beers” after work. He said Mr Hobbs was a married man who only seemed attracted to women.

Three years ago, Mr Hobbs met another friend in Pattaya, UK national Dan Clark, who he entered into a business partnership with. That friendship would lead to the predicament he is in today. Mr Hobbs agreed to set up a fruit juice business with Mr Clark, lending him the money to import juicing machines from China and a second-hand van for deliveries. To protect his investment, Mr Hobbs said the van was purchased and registered under his name.

Mr Clark had also made a new acquaintance: a tall, bearded, middle-aged American called “Steve”, who rented a room above the three-storey townhouse from which he operated the juice business, in the gated Pattaya community of Midtown Villa.

The American was Steven Strike, 46, who had fled from Maui, Hawaii, after being indicted there for the sexual abuse of a boy aged under 14. Eight days after his arrest, Strike obtained a new passport and fled to Thailand

Former Police Officer Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography and Sexual Abuse Charges

Screenshot of Officer Darrell Best from WJLA TV


A former D.C. police officer pled guilty Thursday to charges of child pornography and sex abuse of a minor, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office and the D.C. Police Department.

Darrell Best, 46, a former member of the Metropolitan Police Department, pled guilty to one count of production of child pornography, one count of first-degree sexual abuse of a minor, and one count of second-degree sexual abuse of a minor, announced U.S. Attorney Channing D. Phillips and Cathy L. Lanier, Chief of the Metropolitan Police Department, in a news release.

Best pled guilty in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia. A plea agreement calls for Best to be sentenced to 18 years in prison. The Court will determine at Best’s sentencing the period of supervised release that Best will serve following the completion of his prison term. Best will also be required by law to register as a sex offender for the remainder of his life. If he approves the plea, the Honorable Reggie B. Walton is to sentence Best next year, on Feb. 26, according to the news release.

In addition to working as a police officer, Best was the head pastor of a church in Southeast Washington. The sexual abuse charges stem from incidents involving two minor females who knew and trusted him through the church, police said

Critics cite all-white jury for trial of ex-officer accused of raping black women

The trial of the former Oklahoma City police officer accused of a string of sexual assaults against black women began this week with an all-white jury.
Investigation reveals about 1,000 police officers lost jobs over sexual misconduct

Daniel Holtzclaw is alleged to have sexually assaulted 12 women and a 17-year-old girl while on duty. Prosecutors have said he targeted middle-aged black women of limited means who had cause to want to avoid the police, such as outstanding warrants.

Though African Americans make up 16% of the population of Oklahoma County there are no black people among the eight men and four women on the jury.

“We’re very disappointed that we don’t have any minorities on there … We’re not saying justice can’t prevail but we can be suspicious of it being [run] in a manner,” Oklahoma City National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) president Garland Pruitt told KOCO local news, which reported that three black men were not picked from a pool of 24 potential jurors.

The racial composition of juries is attracting national scrutiny. On Monday the supreme court heard a case about alleged racial bias in jury selection during a 1987 murder trial that could impact the way jurors are picked in future; last month a judge in Kentucky dismissed an entire jury because he felt it was not representative of the community.

All-white juries in Oklahoma are “relatively uncommon but certainly not unheard of”, especially outside large urban areas, said Brady Henderson, legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) of Oklahoma.

In addition to exclusionary tactics such as peremptory challenges, Henderson said systemic factors risk making Oklahoma juries unrepresentative, especially in federal court where jurors’ names are taken from voter registration lists and a disproportionate number of black people are not registered. In state court, where Holtzclaw is being tried, names are culled from drivers’ licences and ID cards.

Holtzclaw faces 36 charges, including rape, forcible oral sodomy and sexual battery, and could be sentenced to life imprisonment. He has pleaded not guilty.

Prosecutors contend that Holtzclaw began committing sex crimes in December 2013, when he coerced a hospitalised w

Secret Service officer may have texted with at least 10 minors

The government recommended Thursday in federal court that a Secret Service officer charged with sending lewd photos to a person whom he believed was a minor be detained pending his trial after new evidence shows he may have engaged in sexual conversations with minors across the United States.

Supporting documents filed Thursday by the federal government prompted the defense to request more time in adequately preparing for the detention hearing, where attorneys will argue that Moore should be released pending his trial.

Walmart Recruited FBI and Lockheed Intelligence Unit for Surveillance of Employee Union

Friday, November 27, 2015

When workers at Walmart tried to unionize two years ago, company executives turned to a defense contractor and the FBI to keep track of labor organizers and supporters.

Using documents obtained from the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), Bloomberg Businessweek reported the retail giant launched a surveillance campaign targeting OUR Walmart, which organized protests in 2013 against the company.

Walmart leadership was so concerned about the union activity that “it hired an intelligence-gathering service from Lockheed Martin, contacted the FBI, staffed up its labor hotline, ranked stores by labor activity, and kept eyes on employees (and activists) prominent in the group” Susan Berfield reported for Bloomberg Businessweek.

“We are fighting for all workers to be paid a fair wage and enough hours to put food on the table and provide for our families,” Mary Pat Tifft, a Wisconsin Walmart employee of 27 years, said, according to Common Dreams. “To think that Walmart found us such a threat that they would hire a defense contractor and engage the FBI is a mind-blowing abuse of power.”

The media investigation into Walmart revealed that inside its global security operation is an Analytical Research Center (ARC), led by a former FBI officer, Ken Senser. And overseeing ARC is an executive, Steve Dozier, who used to run the Arkansas State Police. Walmart is headquartered in Bentonville, Arkansas.

ARC also took action the year before in 2012 when labor activists talked about organizing strikes on Black Friday that year, which could have hurt sales on one of the biggest shopping days of the year. “When we received word of potential strikes and disruptive activity on Black Friday 2012, that’s when we started to ask the ARC to work with us,” Karen Casey, who was in charge of Walmart’s U.S. labor relations, told the NLRB. “ARC had contracted with Lockheed leading up to Black Friday to help source open social media sites.”

Additionally, a Lockheed analyst, Christian Blandford, monitored the social media of activists in Bentonville before Walmart’s shareholder meeting two years ago.

Uniformed Secret Service Officer Charged With Attempting to Transfer Obscene Materials to a Minor

Screen Shot 2015-12-02 at 11.36.19 AM

By Allan Lengel

A federal grand jury in Wilmington, Del. on Wednesday indicted an officer with the U.S. Secret Service-Uniformed Division, who was assigned to the White House, on one-count of attempting to transfer obscene materials to a minor.

Lee Robert Moore, 37, of Church Hill, Md., was arrested Nov. 9, and has remained in custody, the Justice Department said.

A press release stated:

According to the indictment and court documents filed in the case, Moore allegedly maintained a profile on the social media application “Meet24,” which provides a mobile-based platform for exchanging digital images, as well as voice and text messages. Delaware State Police Detectives with the Delaware Child Predator Task Force created a profile on this site, posing as a 14-year-old girl, with whom Moore allegedly engaged in a number of online chat sessions, via the “Meet24” and “Kik” mobile apps over a two-month period, including while Moore was at work. A number of the online chats allegedly between Moore and the supposed female minor were sexual in nature and, on several occasions, Moore allegedly sent pictures of himself, including one depicting his penis.

DOJ IG: Handling of Sexual Harassment and Misconduct Allegations
Full House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform
Hearing Date: April 14, 2015 10:00 am 2154 Rayburn House Office Building


On March 26, 2015, the Depart of Justice’s Office of Inspector General (DOJ OIG) released a report titled, “The Handling of Sexual Harassment and Misconduct Allegations by the Department’s Law Enforcement Components.”
The DOJ OIG found systemic issues with the handling of sexual misconduct allegations, including allegations not being reported to headquarters, and disciplinary actions that did not adequately address the solicitation of prostitutes in jurisdictions where the conduct is legal or tolerated.
Among other things, the report described allegations that Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) agents engaged in “sex parties” that involved prostitutes hired by drug cartels in Columbia.
After the DOJ OIG released its report, Attorney General Eric Holder issued a memo to DOJ personnel stating that employees are “prohibited from soliciting, procuring, or accepting commercial sex.”
Due to a lack of cooperation from the DEA and FBI, the DOJ OIG also noted that relevant information was difficult to obtain during their investigation.

Seminole deputy posed as DEA agent, officials say
Fake agent

Michael Maine, left, and Don Wheeler's fake credentials.
It might have been the plot of a romance novel: A husband in the midst of a divorce tries to win back his wife by getting a friend to pose as a federal drug agent, who then spreads rumors designed to frighten the wife from dating another man.

The ending wasn't reconciliation but rather an arrest of the two men, including a former Seminole County Sheriff's deputy, the Florida Attorney General's office announced Wednesday.

A 40-page affidavit released by the Drug Enforcement Administration details the plan carried out by the men, who have bonded out of the Seminole County Jail.

Don Wheeler, the former deputy, and his friend, Michael Maine, were arrested on charges of falsely impersonating an officer, extortion, conspiracy and unlawful use of a two-way communications device.

If convicted on all the counts they face up to 30 years in prison, according to the prosecutor's office.

It's unclear from the affidavit who masterminded the plan, but both men were involved or knew about the actions to various degrees. In interviews with investigators, Wheeler and Maine pointed fingers at each other.

Whoever had the idea, the former deputy started calling friends of Maine's wife and her boss in June 2014, claiming to be a federal drug agent.

Under the alias of "Don Wheyland," prosecutors said, Wheeler informed them he was investigating the woman's new boyfriend for drug trafficking.

Suspicious, the friends contacted the DEA to confirm whether an agent named Wheyland worked for them. When authorities could not find an agent by that name, they opened their investigation.

After tracing the calls to disposable cell phones and locating Wheeler at a Casselberry residence, DEA agents confronted the former deputy with their evidence.

He admitted to taking part, saying he was trying to help because Maine loved his ex "with all his heart and just wanted her back."

He showed agents a fake identification badge that Maine created for him, bearing the insignia of the DEA.

"The defendants allegedly created counterfeit DEA credentials to pass Wheeler off as a federal agent," a news release states.

"According to court documents, Wheeler also called associates of Maine's wife claiming she was involved in drug trafficking and that the DEA had an active criminal investigation into her involvement."

Wheeler worked at the Seminole County Sheriff's Office from 1997 to 2008, according to a spokeswoman.

In 2005, Wheeler was suspended without pay after his unmarked patrol car was involved in an accident in Georgia while being driven by a Michigan police officer.

Wheeler lost his job in 2008 after he was found sleeping in a patrol car, according to personnel records provided by the Sheriff's Office.

Wheeler went silent for more than three hours without responding to an emergency dispatch, prompting a squad search for his whereabouts. He told investigators he wasn't sleeping, but also said he couldn't remember what

Denver sheriff's deputy uploaded child porn to Twitter, affidavit says
Philip Mangeri, 32, faces two counts in a criminal case filed Dec. 3

Updated: 12/15/2015 03:17:18 AM MST

A Denver Sheriff Department deputy uploaded nude images of boys and girls on Twitter, some of which showed children performing sexual acts on adults or each other, according to court records.

Investigators say at least one image showed a 10-year-old, according to an arrest affidavit.

Philip Mangeri, 32, faces two felony counts in an Adams County criminal case filed Dec. 3, including allegations of child sex exploitation and possession of more than 20 images of child pornography. The department has placed Mangeri on leave. He was arrested Dec. 4.

The affidavit says photos and videos of suspected child pornography were found on a cellphone and computer linked to Mangeri. When confronted with the case in a department internal affairs interrogation room, Mangeri declined to speak without a lawyer, according to the affidavit.

Mangeri was living with his fiancée and four children at the time the investigation began, said the affidavit. Investigators say they found personal family photos amongst some of the child pornography.

The Adams County Sheriff's Office began investigating Mangeri in February after Colorado authorities were tipped off by the

Police chief in Cologne, Germany, is fired amid criticism tied to assaults on women
Germany assaults

Ralf Jaeger, interior minister of Germany's North-Rhine-Westphalia, announces the firing of Cologne police chief Wolfgang Albers on Friday.

The Cologne police chief was fired Friday following reports that authorities in Germany’s fourth-largest city may have covered up information that refugees had been connected to sexual attacks against women outside the central rail station on New Year’s Eve.

Wolfgang Albers, head of the police department, was sent into "early retirement" by the North-Rhine Westphalia state government.

State Interior Minister Ralf Jaeger's move came after Cologne Mayor Henriette Reker complained that Albers had not given her all relevant information about the molesting, groping and robbing of more than 100 women at the central square near the Cologne Cathedral.

"People rightly want to know what happened on New Year's Eve, they want to know who the assailants were, and they want to know how such attacks can be prevented in the future," said Jaeger, sending the 60-year-old into "early retirement" as Germans usually treat such dismissa

Ex-cop avoids jail despite molesting girl

Posted May 23, 2005 at 12:01 AM
Updated Jan 13, 2011 at 9:26 PM

TAUNTON -- Child advocates are criticizing a plea deal that allows a former Taunton police officer to stay out of jail and keep his pension, despite admitting that he repeatedly molested his adoptive daughter.

Under David Smith's plea agreement, negotiated with prosecutors this month, he was sentenced to pretrial probation for four years, meaning the charge will be dismissed if he stays out of trouble during that period.

That also means he walks away with no criminal conviction and won't have to register as a sex offender, The Enterprise of Brockton reported yesterday. Smith, 58, admitted assaulting the child nearly every night for a year beginning when she was 7 years old.

"It's an extremely lenient sentence that doesn't serve to protect the community and its children and it sends the wrong message that people can do this and get away with a slap on the wrist," Janice Pothier-Pac, director of emergency services for rape crisis center New Hope, told the Enterprise.

Smith, a 27-year veteran of the police force, resigned last July after his arrest. He was charged after he told a counselor about the abuse, which started in 2000 after his then-wife moved out.

Smith admitted to sexually abusing the child for more than a year, prosecutors said. The abuse involved touching his genitals, sometimes with her feet, prosecutors said.

Bristol County District Attorney Paul Walsh Jr. defended the plea agreement. He said allowing Smith to keep his pension will mean more child support payments for the girl, now 11. A conviction would have stripped him of his $38,000 annual pension.

Forcing the girl to testify would have been traumatic, he added.

"Everything has to do with the health, the safety, the security and the welfare of that little girl," Walsh said. "The trauma to her would have been unconscionable."

The girl is now in custody of the Department of Social Services.

"She has now a therapist, she has people at DSS, all of whom believe this was in the best interest of the child to do it this way," Walsh told the Enterprise. "They all agreed this was the way to go."

But letting Smith walk free sends a bad message, said Jetta Bernier, chairman of the



Ex-officer going to prison for sex crimes admits killing AJ boy

As Kraig Robert Clark was preparing to be sent to prison on sex charges, the former Tempe police officer dropped a bombshell: He admitted the murder and dismemberment of a 13-year-old Apache Junction boy, according to Surprise police reports released Friday.

Clark, who turns 39 on Monday, apparently wanted to get the slaying off his chest after he was found guilty May 31 of multiple sex crimes involving other boys.

Was aviation firm saleswoman stalked and threatened by FBI agent on business trips?
January 12, 2016 in Crime |

A former top saleswoman for a Van Nuys-based aviation firm alleged Tuesday that she was stalked on business trips by an FBI agent/client who warned her she would be unable to provide for her special- needs son if she resisted him and lost his account.

Doreen Olson Mackey testified that her employer, Helinet Aviation Services LLC, did little to help her resist the advances of agent Victor Grant and that she was ultimately laid off, even though she generated millions of dollars in sales for the company.

Fighting back tears, the divorced mother of two sons said she has searched for more than three years for a steady job that would help provide for her family the way she used to.

“I was devastated,” Mackey told the Los Angeles Superior Court jury hearing her sexual harassment suit against Helinet. “I ended up getting pretty depressed. I felt worthless.”

Mackey said she has made at most about $1,300 the last seven months and that she can no longer pay for tutoring services for her special-needs son, Noah, causing

Swedish police admit race cover-up on crime

Communities across Sweden are struggling to cope with an influx of migrants that is higher per capita than in Germany
Published at 12:01AM, January 16 2016

Fears that the popularity of a Swedish far-right anti-immigrant party would soar persuaded police to suppress details of migrant involvement in crime, officials have admitted.

As anger grows over the country’s open-door refugee policy, the Sweden Democrats party is believed to be benefiting from claims of cover-ups of migrant crimes, most recently over sexual assaults by a group of young Afghan men on teenage girls at a Stockholm festival — for the second time.

Quit delaying: Pay the money, test the rape kits

Published: Sunday, January 24, 2016 at 6:30 a.m. Friday, January 22, 2016 at 5:53 p.m.

Try to imagine an estimated 200,000 DNA rape kits piling up for years on end, sitting ignored and forgotten in law enforcement storage areas across this nation.

Now consider Florida’s particular embarrassment: Here, the number of unprocessed rape kits is officially more than 13,000. But, as bad as that sounds, the number probably is many thousands more than that. How do we know? Because when the Florida Department of Law Enforcement tried to catalog its rape kit backlog in a four-month survey, about 31 percent of Florida police departments did not respond.

Think about that for a moment.

Thirty-one percent of the police departments in the state either don’t know how many untested rape kits they have, can’t count that high, or don’t think they have to answer to FDLE.

Whichever it is, it only proves Gov. Rick Scott, Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi and Sen. Joe Negron, R-Stuart, are all on a public safety scandal of vast proportions. They’re pushing to do something about it.

I ask you: Besides rape, can you think of another crime where police have definitive evidence yet fail to process it?

Since the mid-1990s, law enforcement has had the ability to take forensic evidence from rape victims — body fluids, stray hairs, fingernail scrapings — and match

FBI misconduct revealed

Internal documents obtained by CNN show misconduct by agents, supervisors
One document says one employee shared information with his news reporter girlfriend
More than 300 FBI employees out of 34,000 are disciplined each year, the bureau says
For more on this story, watch"The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer" tonight at 5 p.m. ET

Editor's note: Some content in this report may be offensive to readers. For more on this CNN exclusive story, watch Kyra Phillips' full report on "The Situation Room With Wolf Blitzer" tonight starting at 6 p.m. ET.

Washington (CNN) -- An FBI employee shared confidential information with his girlfriend, who was a news reporter, then later threatened to release a sex tape the two had made.

A supervisor watched pornographic videos in his office during work hours while "satisfying himself."

And an employee in a "leadership position" misused a government database to check on two friends who were exotic dancers and allowed them into an FBI office after hours.

These are among confidential summaries of FBI disciplinary reports obtained by CNN, which describe misconduct by agency supervisors, agents and other employees over the last three years.

Read the FBI documents obtained by CNN

The reports, compiled by the FBI's Office of Professional Responsibility, are e-mailed quarterly to FBI employees, but are not released to the public.

And despite the bureau's very strict screening procedure for all prospective employees, the FBI confirms that about 325 to 350 employees a year receive some kind of discipline, ranging from a reprimand to suspension.

About 30 employees each year are fired.

"We do have a no-tolerance policy," FBI Assistant Director Candice Will told CNN. "We don't tolerate our employees engaging in misconduct. We expect them to behave pursuant to the standards of conduct imposed on all FBI employees."

However, she said, "It doesn't mean that we fire everybody. You know, our employees are human, as we all are. We all make mistakes. So, our discipline is intended to reflect that.

"We understand that employees can make mistakes, will make mistakes. When appropriate, we will decide to remove an employee. When we believe that an employee can be rehabilitated and should be given a second chance, we do that."

Will, who oversees the bureau's Office of Professional Responsibility, said most of the FBI's 34,300 employees, which include 13,700 agents, follow the rules.

Fired FBI agent who blew whistle over sex trips wins his appeal

FBI was wrong to fire Sacramento-based special agent, court rules

Fired agent claims firing was retaliation for his sexual-misconduct complaints

He oversaw secret surveillance of suspected terrorists

The FBI wrongly fired a former special agent based in Sacramento, Calif., who blew the whistle on his colleagues’ alleged sexual misconduct, a federal appeals court has ruled

Capping a battle that’s quietly raged across hearing rooms, courthouses and Capitol Hill, appellate judges rejected the bureau’s charge that led to the 2012 firing of former special agent John C. Parkinson. The ruling effectively means the bureau must rehire Parkinson or pay him.

“It should be appreciated that . . . the penalty of removal, which was predicated on the now-overturned lack of candor charge, cannot be sustained,” wrote Judge Richard Linn of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.

Parkinson’s attorneys call the court vindication, in the 35-page majority decision quietly released Monday, relatively uncommon for FBI whistleblowers and potentially meaningful for others who find themselves in the same shoes.

“We are thrilled at this victory,” attorney Jesselyn A. Radack, with the watchdog group ExposeFacts, said in an interview Tuesday. “It truly is a rare and historic ruling.”

Radack, who joined attorney Kathleen M. McClellan in the case, added that “in general, whistleblowers don’t have a great track record in the Federal Circuit.” The relatively obscure appellate court often handles patent and other technical cases.

The lack of candor charge . . . is unsupported by substantial evidence. Judge Richard Linn

The Parkinson ruling, though, follows years of claims and counterclaims that started with the salacious.

Parkinson joined the FBI in 1999 and arrived in Sacramento the same year, following initial training. By 2006, he was overseeing the Sacramento Division’s Special Operations Group, handling sensitive undercover surveillance operations. The team worked from a clandestine, offsite facility.

“Parkinson's team operated, often with little guidance, in order to determine the whereabouts and patterns of two international terrorism subjects,” one supervisor wrote, adding that the investigation required “several months of surveillance.”

In a 2008 whistleblowing letter, Parkinson alleged that one Sacramento-based colleague had a “career-long pattern of soliciting sex with prostitutes.” This agent, Parkinson alleged, “utilized the FBI’s plane to fly at night to Reno, Nevada, for the sole purpose of engaging prostitutes in acts of illicit sex.”

Another Sacramento-based colleague, Parkinson alleged, had a “history of viewing Internet pornography, both on government and personal computers during work hours.”

“Mr. Parkinson was concerned that (the two colleagues) would defile the furniture by engaging in sexual activity and masturbating on it and watching pornography on the television,” his attorneys recounted in a filing with the Merit Systems Protection Board.

An attorney and decorated Marine Corps Reserve lieutenant colonel who had deployed to Iraq in 2004, Parkinson was, in turn, given poor job evaluations and reassigned from his position.

He considered these moves retaliation for his whistleblowing, which came to the attention of Iowa Republican Sen. Charles Grassley and eventually the Justice Department’s Office of the Inspector General. In time, Parkinson himself was investigated on suspicion of misusing funds involved in building new Sacramento quarters for the Special Operations Group.

“Throughout 2009, and until May 2010, Parkinson was interviewed repeatedly by OIG officials,” the appellate court noted.

The FBI ultimately concluded that Parkinson had obstructed investigators through crafting certain documents and conversing with potential witnesses. The bureau also concluded he’d lacked candor in some of his responses.

After the FBI fired him in 2012, Parkinson filed a complaint with the Merit Systems Protection Board. Usually, the board cannot consider complaints from FBI employees. As a member of the military, though, Parkinson enjoys special protections.

Parkinson lost at the Merit Systems Protection Board, enabling him to appeal. The appellate court upheld the obstruction charge but rejected the more serious lack of candor charge, saying that “even assuming that Parkinson failed to be fully forthright, there is no substantial evidence that this failure was done knowingly.”

The most stringent penalty for obstruction would be suspension of up to 10 days, noted the appellate court, which also ruled that Parkinson should be able to raise a whistleblower defense if the merit board rehears what remains of the case.

The FBI declined to comment Tuesday.

The next steps could include, in theory, continued administrative hearings, reinstatement or, perhaps, a settlement involving back pay and other benefits for Parkinson, who is curre

Congress probes former Greenville Secret Service agent's actions

Editor’s note: The Greenville News has a policy of not identifying
victims in cases of sexual assault. The newspaper is identifying the
accuser in this story, Kristen Anderson, because she publicly came
forward as a named plaintiff in a federal lawsuit leveling accusations
that did not result in criminal charges. The paper discussed this
decision in advance of publication with both the woman and her lawyer.

COLUMBIA ─ Seated at the dining room table of her father's Greenwood
home, tears welling in her eyes, Kristen Miles Anderson described the
night she says she was coerced into having sex with a U.S. Secret
Service agent investigating her as a suspect in a bank embezzlement.

It’s been almost six years to the day since that night at the U.S.
Secret Service office in Greenville. Anderson long ago pleaded guilty
to embezzling about $90,000 and served 10 months of a 15-month
sentence at a federal prison in West Virginia.

A judge citing legal grounds in January threw out her lawsuit filed in
2012 against the agent, the federal government and others. A federal
grand jury investigation spawned by her allegations went no where.

However the U.S. House Committee on Oversight investigating wrongdoing
among the Secret Service is now interested in her story. Last month
the panel asked the inspector general for Homeland Security for a copy
of its investigation report.

Anderson wants the world to know what she says happened to her that
night in March 2010.

“I stood up and took the blame, told them what I did and paid the
price,” Anderson said during an exclusive interview with The
Greenville News. “Then to go back and learn they didn’t even charge
him, that’s just devastating. I can’t even tell you.”

Richard Kerns Jr., the agent who first denied the incident took place
and later described the sex as consensual, resigned after the
allegations came to light. Kerns, who was not charged with any crime,

She wanted to be a cop, until a cop did this

The city of Las Cruces has agreed to a $3 million settlement in Diana Guerrero's case.

– The city of La Cruces, N.M., has agreed to pay $3 million to settle a federal civil lawsuit brought by a woman who was sexually assaulted by a police detective when she was a high-school intern with the department. During the trial, Diana Guerrero, who had aspired to become a police officer, told the court, "It had never occurred to me that a person who had earned a badge would do this," the Associated Press reports, noting Guerrero agreed to be named. According to a Justice Department press release, former Las Cruces police Detective Michael Garcia took Guerrero, then 17, on a ride-along to visit a crime scene in May 2011. Rather than take her directly back to the station, he "drove her to a secluded location where he sexually assaulted her." The press release notes he was "assigned to a unit that focused on child abuse and sex crimes investigations" at the time.

Garcia, who pleaded guilty, was sentenced to nine years in prison in late 2014. Guerrero reported the assault, which left her feeling "like a piece of trash" in 2013, after bumping into a female detective that year who asked why she had ended the internship. "I just blurted it out," Guerrero told KVIA. "I am most happy and satisfied that this lawsuit brought to light a cesspool of sexual violence and harassment that exists in police departments across this country," Guerrero tells the AP. Indeed, an investigation by the news outlet found that, during a six-year period, about 1,000 officers were fired for a range of sex crimes; it calls that number "unquestionably an undercount." The City Council still has to approve

Former DEA Agent Pleads Guilty to Child Pornography


HOUSTON — A 39-year-old former Drug Enforcement Administration agent who lived in McAllen pleaded guilty to a child pornography charge before a federal court judge.

James Patrick Burke, 39, entered a guilty plea to one count of access with intent to view child pornography and faces up to 10 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, according to a Thursday news release from the U.S. Attorney's office.

Burke, who is originally from Massachusetts but was residing in McAllen last year while working with the DEA, was found accessing files from a website known to contain child pornography, according to FBI investigators.

A search warrant was executed at Burke's residence on Aug. 14, 2015, where investigators seized a laptop computer and a desktop computer. Burke admitted to downloading and viewing child pornography from the internet and to using forensic wiping software to delete the images and movies, the release states. 

"An examination of what was collected from the server side of the website showed that Burke had accessed a total of 77 threads which contained 345 contact sheets with approximately eight images of child pornography per sheet. These images included children under the age of 12, bondage and acts of violence. Some of the images are of known victims as identified through the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children," the releas

Deputy involvrd in 'glaring' incident still on the force

The night of Dec. 8, 2012, a sheriff’s investigator invited a female grand jury witness to meet for a drink in Montvale, a small community between Roanoke and Bedford.

The woman wondered whether she might be in trouble. They parked her car shortly after midnight. The investigator, a member of a multijurisdictional drug task force, assured her she was in the clear.

He wanted sex. She told him no thanks.

She later told federal authorities that Bedford County Sheriff’s Deputy Christopher Lee Cook, 42, intoxicated on more than six beers, exposed himself during the encounter. He subsequently admitted the same to his superiors.

Authorities tried to keep Cook’s misconduct from being brought up in federal court when he testified against a man he investigated in a drug case. That backfired. The judge kicked the prosecutor off the case and the defendant went free, avoiding most of an 11-year prison term.

Cook was quietly suspended and demoted but kept his job. Unaware of his past, a group later named him Virginia’s school resource officer of the year.

The 19-year law enforcement veteran’s work history is documented at the Lynchburg federal courthouse in 91 pages of reports and memos that read like a made-for-TV police drama. An incident involving an extramarital affair cost him an earlier job with another agency.

The Virginia Department of Criminal Justice Services, the state agency created to set and enforce standards for law enforcement, has taken no action against Cook. Sexual misconduct with witnesses, clients or patients can get doctors or lawyers sanctioned in Virgi

State Dept Dan Rosen’s Arrest: Cheat Sheet for Journos

Fairfax County PD Search Warrant for Daniel Rosen as reported by @NBC’s @JulieCareyNBC
When Senator Lamar Alexander’s (R TN) Chief of Staff, Ryan Loskarn, was arrested, last year, for trading in the rape and torture of children, aka child pornography, not one journalist provided context to the story. The media reported Loskarn’s arrest, and subsequent suicide pending trial, as if it were a one-off event. As if, no other high-level government employees were being arrested on child porn charges.
So, I suppose I should be thrilled to see that both Paul Farrell, the Breaking News Editor for Heavy, and Shane Harris, Sr. Intelligence and National Security Correspondent for The Daily Beast and New America Foundation Fellow, tried to provide context to the State Department’s Director of Counterterrorism, Daniel Rosen’s arrest, 26 February 2015, on charges of computer solicit of a child under 15 years old for sex/sodomy.

Daniel Rosen’s Fairfax County PD Arrest Warrant Reported by NBC’s @JulieCareyNBC
Farrell reported Rosen’s arrest was “the Second Child Sex Scandal to Hit D.C. in 12 Months.” Harris said Rosen’s arrest marks the “3rd U.S. Official Hit With Child Sex and Porn Charges.”
At least Paul and Shane poked their heads up and said something like: Hang on. Seems to me I’ve heard this story before. Haven’t there been other recent arrests of high level government officials on child sex abuse charges? Nonetheless, both are far off the mark. A simple Google or Twitter search reveals far more than two or three government officials arrested on similar charges.
Research 101
As I have been documenting, for years now, by all accounts there is both a national child porn crisis and, within that, a crisis of American federal and state employees engaged in child porn. In what appears to be epidemic numbers men are down-loading child porn often on their work computers at The Pentagon, The Department of Homeland Security (DHS), The Department of Justice (DOJ), Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE), The Department of Transportation (DOT), The Transportation Security Agency (TSA), The Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) not to mention state-level police departments from Maine to California.
Maine’s Governor, Paul LePage, has recognized this crisis by issuing the first, to my knowledge, of its kind Executive Order, on 20 February 2015, prohibiting Maine state employees from accessing pornographic or sexually explicit material on both state computers or devices even when they were off-duty on personal time.
North Carolina’s Congressman, Mark Meadows (R) also recognizes the scope of the crisis and put forward the Eliminating Pornography from Agencies Act. This law, if passed, would stop federal employees from accessing, watching or sharing pornography on government-issued computers and devices. Congressman Meadows introduced this 18 September 2014. To date, he has not one co-sponsor. Not one other member of Congress cares about this issue? Apparently not.
Other Recent Arrests of Government Employees
Because the Department of Justice is not collecting data on child porn arrests, no one knows how many government employees have been arrested on child porn related charges, much less how many are engaged in the child porn industry who have yet to be caught.
The arrests listed here are, therefore, an incomplete data-set, gathered from the most rudimentary search method: simple Google and Twitter searches. On my other Medium postings I have listed recent arrests of police and military. So many police chiefs, for example, are being arrested for trading in brutal child rape and torture, I had to create a separate section.
From the record of the following arrests alone, we can speculate, child porn within our government agencies has reached crisis level.
A Few Highlights
• Acting Director of Cyber Security at the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Timothy DeFoggi, age 56, was sentenced, January 2015, to 25 years in federal prison for “participating in a child pornography ring that sources say was so depraved, it even shocked veteran investigators.” DeFoggi was a registered user of an on-line child rape and torture, aka child porn, trading site. DeFoggi “expressed an interest in the violent rape and murder of children. DeFoggi suggested meeting one member in person to fulfill their mutual fantasies to violently rape and murder children.”
• Former Undersecretary of the Navy, 70 year old James Daniel Howard, arrested on child porn possession and reproduction charges in 2013. Howard had served as special assistant to President Ronald Reagan. He plead guilty to ten child porn counts and served only seven months in jail.
• Joint Strike Fighter Program Navy officer, Bruce Babchyck, arrested in 2014 for downloading “hundreds of gigabytes” of young girls and bestiality on government computers. He received a one year sentence.
• Anthony Mangione, 50 year old Director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) for South Florida, was arrested on “extreme child abuse” charges on 28 September 2011. He was sentenced, November 2012, to nearly six years in prison. Mangione is a 1982 graduate of the University of Maine Orono (UMO) where former Senior Child Protection Services (CPS) Cynthia Wellman claimed, at the time, CPS was operating a child sex ring, on campus, with UMO’s involvement. “Little is known about Mangione’s time at UMaine. Originally from Rhode Island, he arrived in Orono in August 1978.”
• David Bourque, formerly the 51 year old Police Captain of Granby, Connecticut, was sentenced to ten years for child porn possession and distribution. He had more than 328,528 images and 4,000 videos on his police department computer including “sadistic and violent acts” against infants and toddlers. His “collection” was organized into more than 300 sub-folders named “photos — babies — men” and “6–10yo boys pics.” In this excerpt Bourque is D for defendant.

David Bourque’s Criminal Complaint
Prosecutors said the images were “extremely disturbing; some are especially horrific” including: (1) a boy between 1 and 3 years old being raped by an adult male penis in the child’s anus, (2) a boy between 3 and 6 years old with a “penis of what appears to be an adult male pressed against the child’s anus” and (3) a child, less than a year old, “performing oral sex on an adult male.” Bourque showed “callous disregard” for the children being abused telling people to “enjoy” themselves and “have fun.” Samples of his on-line chats include extensive discussions of rape and bondage of children. Bourque was a decorated officer with more than 31 years in law enforcement.
• Army prosecutor and judge advocate, Daniel Wollverton, father of two, convicted in 2011 for infant sodomy and possession of over 30,000 images and 1,000 videos of brutal child sex abuse including that of a three month old infant.
• Maine Assistant Attorney General, 52 year old James Cameron, was sentenced to just over 15 years in federal prison, December 2014, for seven counts of child porn possession, receipt and transmission. Cameron, widely recognized as Maine’s “top drug prosecutor,” had been trading in PTHC - pre-teen hard core. Images/videos that investigators seized included “images depicted prepubescent children, sadistic and other violent conduct.”
• Army Colonel, 55 year old Robert Joel Rice, a war game developer at Army War College, was charged with 130 child porn counts. He had more than 30,000 images/videos of child sex abuse when his wife discovered the files and notified local police. The Army War College had continued to employ Rice, and allow him supervised access to Army computers, while on bail pending trial. Col. Rice had been scheduled for a July 2013 arraignment; however, Rice’s federal hearing was delayed until February 2015. Rice’s preliminary county hearing had been set for April 2013.
• David O’Brien, America’s chief scientist responsible for monitoring global nuclear activity at Patrick Air Force Base’s Technical Applications Center, which operates our Atomic Energy Detection System, was arrested May 2013 and charged with ten counts of child porn possession and distribution.

O’Brien had a large child porn collection on his home and Air Force computers. On 17 October 2014 he was sentenced to five years in federal prison in exchange for a guilty plea to one child porn count. O’Brien had download videos of the sex abuse of children as young as three years old. He had taken pictures of his granddaughter and placed images of her head over images of children being sexually abused. He also had pictures of Air Force employees transposed over sex abuse images.
US Department of State
• Carl Carey, a 54 year Senior Project Manager in Information Technology (IT) at the US State Department, was arrested on ten counts of child porn possession, April 2012, by the Fairfax County Police.
• Gons Nachman, a 42 year old former US diplomat “admitted taping his sexual encounters with teenage girls while stationed in Brazil and the Congo” was sentenced, August 2008, to 20 years in prison. Nachman also plead guilty to child porn possession. One of his videos was titled “Congo 2004 Sexual Adventures.” His law degree is from the University of Pennsylvania, where he was president of the Naturist Student Association and “led demonstrations involving public nudity in 1995.”
• James Cafferty, 45 year old Special Agent with the US State Department’s Bureau of Diplomatic Security, pleaded guilty, 5 January 2012, to child porn charges and was sentenced, 26 April 2012, to 7 years in federal prison. Upon his arrest he had more than 30,000 images of child sex abuse. He “had shipped computer equipment containing many of those images from London to the United States when he returned home from his last official government assignment.”
• Timothy Towell, 75 year old former US Ambassador to Paraguay, was charged with “sex crimes” against an 18 year old in 2009.
• Howard Gutman, former US Ambassador to Belgium was accused of “routinely… soliciting sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children” according to an Office Inspector General (OIG) investigation. Aurelia Fedenisn, a now former OIG investigator said her unit had found widespread evidence of “sex and drug scandals” but “were told not to look into it.” Fedenisn said “investigations into the allegations were called off by senior officials to avoid political embarrassment.”
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA)
• Andrew Warren, a 42 year old former CIA Chief of Station in Algeria, was arrested April 2010. Warren’s neighbors called Norfolk police when Warren exposed himself in public. “He had his genitals hanging out of his pants, over the top of ‘em,” said one witness. Warren reportedly said “Excuse me. I’ve had minor surgery so I get a little horny sometimes.” He had been terminated from employment with the CIA in May 2009, after he drugged the drink of a woman in Algiers and raped her. Warren plead guilty and, June 2009, was indicted on sexual assault charges. Diplomatic Security Service agents also found child pornography on Warren’s laptop computer in 2008. When he was the CIA’s Chief of Station in Algeria, he allegedly “drugged and raped multiple women before getting recalled home.” Warren was sentenced, on sex assault charges, among others, to more than five years in federal prison in March 2011. It appears Warren was not charged for the child pornography on his government computer.
Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI)
• Donald Sachtleben, a 54 year old former FBI Agent was arrested, 14 May 2012, and charged on child pornography charges. He plead guilty to distribution and possession and was sentenced, 14 November 2013, to eight years in prison. He was also sentenced to unrelated charges of one count of disclosing and one count of possessing classified information. At the time of his arrest Sachtleben was Director of Training at the Center for Improvised Explosives at Oklahoma State University. He served the FBI from 1983 to 2008 as a bomb technician and counter terrorism investigator. Sachtleben had been using the handle pedodave69@yahoo.com when he was caught sending images of child sex abuse in an on-line forum. He wrote, “Saw your profile on (a file sharing network). Hope you like these and can send me some of ours (sic). I have even better ones if you like.”
• Keith Dietterle, a 28 year old FBI Analyst, was arrested, 23 November 2012, on child porn charges. He plead guilty to child porn possession and was sentenced, September 2013, to more than three years in prison. Dietterle was caught when he sent child sex abuse images/videos to an undercover Metro DC Detective. The detective was posing as a man sexually abusing his 3 year old nephew and 12 year old daughter. Dietterle described the rape of the children as “So hot man … how’d it start?” and discussed meeting the detective with the intention of sexually abusing the three year old boy. Upon his arrest, the FBI terminated Dietterle’s employment.
Homeland Security
• Brian Doyle, Deputy Press Secretary for the Department of Homeland Security, was arrested “for trying to seduce online someone he thought was a teenage girl.” Doyle was charged with 23 felony charges related to sexually graphic conversations with a person he thought was a 14 year old girl who, in reality was, an undercover detective. On 17 November 2006, Doyle was sentenced to five years in prison with ten years probation thereafter. He is a registered sex offender and was released from prison on 11 January 2015.
• 31 year old Eric Higgins, a Homeland Security Customs and Border Protection agent in Michigan, plead guilty to child porn possession. Over forty images of a child previously identified by law enforcement were found on his laptop.
• Nicholas Bolden, a 40 year old Homeland Security Customs and Border Patrol agent, was sentenced for child porn possession on his government computer. Bolden had accessed a Russian child porn website while at work from his work computer. A child porn CD was also found at his workplace desk.

Police Departments & Military Staff
Police officers are, of course, also government employees as are US military staff. The arrests, alone, of both state government employed police officers and federally employed military staff are stunning. These arrests are so numerous, and my record is very incomplete, that it appears trading in child sex rape and torture is almost encouraged within some police departments and military units. Recent arrests of Police Arrested for Trading in Child Rape & Torture and Military Staff Trading in Child Rape & Torture are listed in separate postings.

Media Coverage of Ryan Loskarn’s Arrest
The media coverage of late Senate staffer Ryan Loskarn’s arrest for graphic and violent child porn, including the rape of a six year old girl in the woods by her father, ignored, entirely, the children in the videos. These are real children suffering real harm. Will the six year old girl raped in the woods by her father be rescued? No one asked. No one wanted to know.
John Harwood, for example, a DC reporter for CNBC and The New York Times, tweeted “Feeling so sad about Ryan Loskarn. Knew him a bit as a reporter and liked him. RIP.” I asked Harwood about the children in Loskarn’s child porn collection. Harwood’s response was “as father of daughters I’m horrified by that violent abuse. But I knew Ryan Loskarn & yes, I am sad for him & his family.”
I responded, “I appreciate that. As the father of daughters will you focus media attention on finding the 6 yr girl in Loskarn’s video? That’s all I am asking. It’s a simple & I think appropriate request. Given #Loskarn’s final words were to the children. No?”
Harwood never replied.
Child Porn as a National Security Threat
America has a child porn crisis. The disturbing number of federal and state employees arrested for child porn charges makes this a national security issue. Over the past few years, I’ve been documenting the scope of America’s child porn industry and the apparent level of involvement by America’s national security and federal employees. Forbes, The Washington Times and others have published my research. Fox News and Canadian TV (CTV) invited me for interviews. My CTV interview went mini-viral as did my Forbes article. I was the first to ask, in 2012, if White House staff might have been involved in the Colombia Secret Service scandal.
I am now researching and writing a book: Child Porn Nation: America’s Hidden Security Threat. My starting premise is men, and increasingly women, are raping children, very young children, including infants and toddlers, and sharing videos, images, and live-streaming of this abuse at epidemic levels. These criminals are, by and large, getting away with it because America refuses to move beyond our denial.
We are sustaining crisis-level numbers of seemingly normal, often powerful and successful men, and some women, involved in America’s child sex abuse industry; far too many of whom are federal or state employees.
It does not matter if the perpetrator is on the demand-side, with incessant appetites for graphic child abuse to achieve sexual gratification, or the supply-side of abusing children, often their own or children of friends and relatives, and selling this abuse on-line. Both supply and demand, which often cross over, have reached epidemic proportions and no one is talking about it.
My research is intended to be a wake-up call. The problem of child sex abuse, and its cover-up, is real. A generation of American children are being destroyed. If you think this only happens to other children, and your children are safe, you are sadly mistaken. Your children might be enduring sexual abuse right now while you remain dangerously ignorant. Ryan Loskarn’s parents never knew, until they read his suicide note, that he had suffered sex abuse as a child.
America’s appetite for child porn puts all our children at risk. Your children and mine. Whether you acknowledge it or not.
Dr. Paul Farmer, a humanitarian and personal hero, has said we must find the words to talk about the most painful subjects if we hope to have any positive impact on this world of ours. This is my attempt to find those words and open a subject no one wants to discuss.
That is, that while no one was watching, America has become a child porn nation and that puts us all at risk.
