A U.S. prosecutor accused of using the Internet to arrange for sex with a 5-year-old girl flew to Michigan carrying sexual materials and presents for the child, authorities said Tuesday.
John D.R. Atchison, 53, of Gulf Breeze, Fla., was arrested Sunday at Detroit Metropolitan Airport after several weeks of Internet conversations between the prosecutor and a detective posing as the mother of a 5-year-old girl, authorities say.
Officials said Atchison, an assistant U.S. attorney in Florida, made the trip anticipating a sexual encounter but was arrested instead. He was carrying presents for the girl, including a doll and hoop earrings, and also had sexual materials, including petroleum jelly, Sheriff Mark Hackel said.
A federal grand jury added a charge Tuesday of crossing state lines with intent to have sex with someone younger than 12. Atchison also faces charges of use of the Internet to seek illicit sex and interstate travel to engage in illicit sexual contact. He could face up to life in prison.

Brian Shinkle Edwards County State's Attorney Illinois

A CHOICE IN EDWARDS COUNTY -- ALBION,ILLINOIS
"who'd'a thunk it?!
Speaking of voting, I guess we'll have a choice in Edwards County Illinois next year for state's attorney, huh?
It's only about eight years too late....but then, our current contender was probably just beginning college at about that time so he wouldn't have been able to be in the running anyway.
It's too bad things had to get into such a state of decay in Edwards before someone finally begged, borrowed or stole a lawyer to come to town and beat Shinky down.
Course Shinky has done enough beating of his own to have ruined his chances no matter who his opponent was.
Right before we learned that someone else had acctually picked up a petition, Jack and I were thinking of taking our own advice and asking for a referendum to be put on the ballot before the November elections. The referendum question was going to be: "Even if he's the only one running, do you want Brian Shinkle to be our elected state's attorney, yes or no?"
I strongly believe the majority vote would have been 'no', and Shinkle would have found himself ina bizarre situation that might ultimately have involved supreme court rulings challenging Shinkle's right to pursue "Law and Order" (no Fred Thompson jokes, please) in Edwards County.

Get ready for more quotes from the Bible from the Shinkle campaign..........

You must not read the local papers Ms. Northwest Benton because apparently you haven't seen the ads Melissa's opponent has been running wherein he cites the Bible - 2 Chronicles 7:14. I agree with you, he shouldn't have brought religion into this race. You know, you can be a Democrat and still be a Christian. Well I must go - time to cast my vote!

He risked his life??? Please! He was serving as an advocate judge, meaning he was in a non-combat zone. He has failed to prosecute countless cases involving drugs, and violent offenders, or has let the defendents plead out to lesser charges. His wife has filed for divorce (this is the second time filing against him),and an Order of Protection was filed. Bad move letting his marriage fall apart since his daddy-in-law is a strong politician with lots of strings to pull. Shinkle won't be able to be elected dag catcher after this one!!! By the way I know the Shinkles well, and I am from Edwards County.
Sick of Shinkle

Why its good to be the State's Attorney of Edwards County Illinois Brian Shinkle
1. You are above the law and no one will arrest you for drinking and driving..........plus you get to harrass hardworking citizens and they have to pay you a huge sum of money every month.
2. You get to join lots of civic organizations to fool yourself and others that you are a good person,$ don't forget you get to cry on peoples shoulders about how "tough" your life is.(Dont mention any of your bad habits though, that might fuzzy up their opinion of you and it is an election year.)
3. Throw your wife and children out of the house that her family paid for and live there rent free, oh and don't let your children or wife have any of thier stuff, keep it, and sell it at local consignment shops, when they ask for anything threaten to have them arrested...because you are the States Attorney of Edwards County Brian Shinkle.
4. Claim squatters rights because you live in a house that you didn't and will never pay for.
5. Claim to be the Protector of Abused in the papers but leave out that nasty detail of you being a professional abuser yourself, that never sells well in a campaign does it?
6. Go running anytime of the day that you want. Edward County voters want you to go running!! Your job is stressful.
7. Use people, use people, use people use people
8. Talk the talk but don't have to walk the walk
9. You don't lie, just bend the words and change them just a little so the meaning is well ..........different.
10. Say you are in the reserves, but you don't really have to go just shave your head and wear a uniform around.

Edwards County has a new prospect for State's Attorney......Attorney and former States Attorney M. Crowe was in Edwards County this weekend campaigning for the job. Looks like there will be a race. Edwards County may yet get someone suitable for the job.

Too late for Mike Crowe...petition filing is past, I believe. From what I've heard, he's a p.o.s. anyway. He's the one who screwed up the Julie Rae prosecution.

Hi mimi...I wish you'd email me.

Mr. Valentine is firmly in place according to disclosure. Now this is all dependant on which party Crowe is.

I thought Rietz screwed up the Jule case.

Mr. Valentine just got married this weekend and he and his new wife (the former Megan Hallam from Albion who is also an attorney), are actively planning a move to the Edwards county area as soon as they can make arrangements. They are planning a very active campaign. He really wants and desires this job.

That's okay, Albion Bricks. Repetition breeds proficiency.

Hi, meow. I just sent you an email (for those who don't know, meow is my sister. I've just been really busy. We just live a country block away from each other, but work opposite schedules usually.) We're both big Shinkle anti-fans because of the way he did a couple of our friends a few years ago. And his buddy Kakac isn't any better, but nobody's running against him. So us Wayne County ppl are STUCK.
fyi

Good, then maybe someone will come and run against Kakac.

Too bad about the crowe thing for Edwards, unless of course crowe is republican. Maybe Shinkle won't make it past the primary!
