Jail Rapes Investigations

United States

#47 Sep 28, 2012
Jail rapes are investigated internally and whitewashed in Florida. This is how Gary Borders was able to manipulate the outcome of the Lake Jail rapes and cover up the many little boys rapes at his Green isle Boys Ranch.

Awareness of child sexual abuse has changed dramatically in the wake of the Penn State scandal that resulted in the conviction of former assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky on 45 counts involving 10 boys. The matter struck closer to home when The Times reported last fall that a convicted child molester had been helping cast child actors in mainstream Hollywood movies. Within weeks, another case surfaced: Longtime child talent manager Martin Weiss was arrested Nov. 29 on suspicion of child molestation. He pleaded no contest in June to two counts of molestation.

State creates new abuse law
Failing to inform authorities about any suspected child abuse is now a felony in Florida, sparked in part by the recent Penn State University football sex abuse scandal.
The new law went into effect Monday and requires anyone who believes a child has been abused to report it to the Florida Abuse Hotline, a requirement that formerly applied only when the alleged abuser was the parent or caregiver.
Sgt. Kristen Thompson, who investigates cases of child abuse and neglect for the Lake County Sheriff's Office, said the law will allow less child abuse cases to slip through the cracks.
"The law now provides more accountability and that's a good thing when it comes to trying to stop child abuse," Thompson said.

Thompson added violators could get as much as five years in prison on what is now a third-degree felony as opposed to the one year sentence on what used to be only a misdemeanor.

According to a Department of Children and Families press release, any allegations a child was abused or neglected by a caregiver will be investigated by DCF, while allegations of child abuse by someone other than a caregiver will be accepted at the Hotline and immediately electronically transferred to the appropriate local law enforcement agency where the child lives.

Last year, there were 3,189 cases out of Lake County reported to the abuse hotline out of Lake County, according to Kristi Gray, a DCF spokeswoman. During the same period, child protective investigators across the state investigated more than 184,000 cases of alleged abuse and neglect involving about 300,000 children.

Walter Forgie, a supervisor with the State Attorney's Office in Lake County added there has only been one case since 2009 in which someone in the 5th judicial circuit, a five-county area that includes Lake, has been prosecuted for failing to report a case of child abuse.

Well, Mr. Forgie, what good does it do to make “Failing to inform authorities about any suspected child abuse is now a felony in Florida” when you report it to the Lake county Sheriff’s Office and the Sheriff stops the investigation and covers up the rapes because he is afraid he and his friends will be sued by the victims and their parents. Such was the case of the FIVE BRUTALLY RAPED VICTIMS AGE 12-15 YEARS OLD at Sheriff Borders Green Isle Boys Ranch in November 2009. Only after house parents who did not even work at Green Isle when the rapes occurred reported the rapes to local television stations did Border restart the investigation and with the help of your office set up a fake arrest and whitewash the rapist court appearance and sentencing. You are going to say this is all a lie. Then why in the hell didn’t the rapist go to jail less than a year after his fake court appearance before Judge Takac when his male lover 29 years his senior got a dating violence injunction against him? If you have no probation you have no violation for continued crimes!

Why make more laws like this one when they pick and choose who they are going to charge and who they are not and randomly don’t enforce the laws already on the books?

If you want to make more laws why don’t we make it a felony (against the law) for the law to lie!

Lets make it a felony of the first degree when someone reports child abuse and child rapes to law enforcement (especially sheriff’s who operate their own little boy’s ranch’s) Lets make it a felony for law enforcement to investigate anything that personally involves them.
another suit filed

Woman says officers knocked out teeth, left her half naked during arrest

LAKE COUNTY, Fla.—

A central Florida woman has filed a lawsuit against the Lake County Sheriff and the Leesburg Police Department, claiming officers knocked out her teeth and left her half naked in full view of others during an arrest.

WFTV's Kenneth Craig learned the arrest happened during Leesburg Bike Week last April, but the lawsuit wasn't filed until Tuesday.

Craig spoke to the victim, Ashleigh Davis, on Tuesday.

Davis and a friend were arrested on charges of being drunk and disorderly at Leesburg's Bike Week 2011. She doesn't dispute that, but what happened during her arrest she's calling excessive and humiliating.

Video from a police department holding cell shows Davis topless on the floor with her legs and arms cuffed with eight male officers standing by.

"(They) handcuffed my hands to my feet and then took a tie and tied it around, then carried me like a suitcase and threw me on the back of a golf cart," Davis said.

She said her bikini top came off and she was hogtied, and led through the crowd topless before being taken to the Leesburg Police Department.

Pictures of her chipped teeth and bruised body were taken afterwards. Reports show Davis was kicking and fighting with the officers and even bit one and drew blood, before she tried to bite a deputy's leg.

In the video, an officer is seen holding her face to the ground and that's when Davis claims he knocked her teeth out.

"I just remember him grabbing me from behind, my hair, and going like this (covers mouth) and then I try to bite, and then they grabbed me by the back of my head and slammed my face down," said Davis.

Davis said she filed a complaint right after the incident.

On Tuesday, her attorney filed a lawsuit against the Lake County Sheriff's Office and the Leesburg Police Department, alleging excessive force.

WFTV found out Davis has been arrested at least twice before, including on charges of criminal mischief.

But she told WFTV that didn't give officers any excuse to treat her the way they did.

WFTV contacted both law enforcement agencies but neither wanted to comment.

This is the second controversy in less than a week for the Leesburg Police Department.

Last week, an officer there was put on leave after he was accused of sexually assaulting a woman who he arrested. Police launched an internal investigation, and the Florida Department of Law Enforcement was called in to do a criminal investigation. Both are still ongoing.

Lake Sheriff Borders and his agency are under many pending lawsuits at this time. One of the most nototious is the July shooting of an innocent man in his apartment when deputies knocked on his door in the middle of the night unanounced as law enforcements. Andrew Lee Scott come to the door armed as anyone in their right mind would do in todays world and the shot and killed him right through a partially opened door.

More wrongful death suits are in the process of being filed agaisnt Borders personally and his agency.

The politician Horner had to drop out of his race because his name was found on the
List of customers from a house of ill repute.

The candidate for Sheriff of Marion County had to drop out of the race and resign his job as second
In command because it was disclosed he had been involved in an extramarital affair.
Now his replacement is under investigation for elections law violations and put on hold for
assuming the position he was elected too.

Yesterday they announced Ralph Bowers; the 69 year old City Manager of Fruitland Park was under investigation for sexual battery against another city employee. He is being investigated by none other than Sheriff Gary Borders. The part-time reserve Fruitland Park police officer and Umatilla Band volunteer Robert Allen Frieszell reportedly arrested by LCSO for computer porn don’t show up in the Lake County Jail log, but he shows up in the court records being represented by John Spivey, Public Defenders Office.

Now last night the national news announced General Petraeus resigned as CIA Director because
He had an extramarital affair.

Everyone around the Lake jail and sheriff’s office and half of Lake County knows all about the long history of sex-capades of Gary Borders, many of them criminal in nature, but not one thing has been done about all the crimes committed by our Teflon Sheriff, Gary Borders. Eye witnesses to the jail inmate sex. The statement from the retired jail captain alone regarding the Scott Stone brother incident when then Major Borders told the captain to “just make it go away.” The fact that he did not immediately arrest his little friend Tyler Anthony Jackson, the Green Isle rapist alone is Obstruction of Justice. The victims reported the rapes upon their little bodies in great details and all five of them Xed the YES in the do you wish to prosecute box. One little boy victim even wrote in the box “to make the punishment hard.” And what did our sheriff do? Not one thing! No arrest of his friend the rapist and no more investigation until the news leaked to the public 75 days after the rapes were reported. Then he had his “fix all” Detective Marcie Poitevent fake an arrest, his friend and co-conspirator State Attorney Brad King and some judge fake up a plea and a sentencing. All the while this violent sex offender is free on the streets of Citrus County, Fl. getting speeding tickets, having wrecks and dating violence injunctions filed on him by male lovers 29 years older than he is. That alone should make investigators question this young un-registered sexual offender as to where he acquired his attraction to older men.

No matter how much they cover up their cover ups the victims are still waiting their turn for justice. There will never be closure for them until every last person who committed the crimes against them as well as every last person who aided and abetted the cover ups of those crimes is brought to justice.

Everybody claims to wonder what happened to our country and why people does not respect the law anymore. In the case of the Green Isle Ranch it is because so many victims know the powerful can abuse them and be protected by their friends in the system. Would you grown up respecting a system that lied, condoned and covered up for those who grossly abused you body when you were a child and even worse just grinned and smiled when they were caught? No you won’t because no one will. It’s just that in todays rotten world no one cares until it’s their little boys or girls; then it’s a catastrophe!

Second child sexual abuse claim made against Elmo puppeteer Kevin Clash

Lawsuit filed today by attorney Jeff Herman alleges voice of Elmo trolled gay telephone chat line rooms to meet and have sex with underage boys.

According to the Complaint:

The victim’s attorney, Jeff Herman, said:“According to our lawsuit, Kevin Clash preyed on vulnerable teenage boys, like Cecil Singleton, to satisfy his depraved sexual interests. By coming forward now, Cecil hopes to spare the lives of others like him and to begin his own healing process."

CECIL SINGLETON v. KEVIN CLASH was filed early Tuesday morning.

there is no possible way that the state of florida should allow a juvenile detention center in lake county. who is gonna run it? captain theobold who is in a relationship with a 21 year old male dispatcher.. sgt, lee piper who became borders’ boyfriend then hired and protected by the sheriff. wasnt piper fired from sumter county due moral turpitude reasons. he was befriended by a lake county female officer who was also fired from sumter county for having a relationship with an inmate. she introduced borders and piper. birds of a feather. is corporal scott stone gonna run the juvenile center. the sheriffs current male buddy. maybe the sugary kevin lenhart who bragged that all he had to do was get the sheriff drunk one night and he got the admin of medical job. ex cop from east coast florida just put on trial 3 years after using his position to molest teenage boys. it took three years for someone to believe the boys. the cops own son caught him, thats when they believed the victims. how many more young boys and men were vicitmized before they believed the victims. according the the state, several more came forward after charges were filed. i hope the county commissioners will look beyond the political horizon and for once look into their own souls as parents and grandparents. would they want their teenage son to be locked in a room with sheriff gary borders. come up with any excuse you want to deny the juvenile center. do not allow gary borders and his ilk access to more more defenseless victims. victims who are not believed or are dismissed due to political greed.

Let me see if I understand what I read on this Green Isle Rapist thing.

First Sheriff Borders has been involved with Green Isle Boys Ranch ever since he moved here from Osceola County and maybe even in the planning of it before that but most people didn’t know that.
Even people who worked closely with Borders in the Lake Jail had never heard of his involvement with Green Isle Boys Ranch.

I have seen all the reports of rapes and even the state DCF saying the children were being sexually abused and having sex between themselves for years and nothing was ever done about that.

I have seen one suit around 2000 that was settled against them for sexual abuse of a 9 year old boy both by fellow students and Green Isle employee’s as well, but seen nothing about any arrests or convictions.
Sometime around 2008 there was a complaint about the boys being fed bad food and even frozen maggots. I have seen the news release from Brad King’s office saying the complainant was a disgruntled employee and he found nothing wrong.

Some time in early 2009 the ranch reopened. I see in all this paperwork the guy that raped the kids was featured in April 2009 as having been at the school when it closed over the food incident and now returning for the second time. Does this mean he was friends with Borders from his previous days?
Tyler Anthony Jackson is pictured in the summer 2009 ranch paper with Sheriff Borders. Jackson is later reported to have been sexually abusing these five little boys about that same time over the summer.

For some unknown reason Tyler Anthony Jackson leaves Green isle and goes back to Crystal River High School as a junior. By November 21, 2009 the five little boys get up the nerve to report to school administrator Rev. Zepp that Tyler Jackson had been sexually abusing them over the summer and even threatened their lives if they told. Rev Zepp dialed 911 and reported the rapes to the LCSO immediately.

Within two days Zepp was gone from Green Isle because the school management didn’t like him reporting the rapes. He demanded school management get the victims some help and they refused.
LCSO deputy who responded done a good job , even contacted the state abuse hotline.

The case was assigned to Detective Poitevent on November 23, 2009. She claims she took one of the victims to the Children’s Advocacy Center in Leesburg for a forensic interview on November 25, 2009. On that same day the rapist Tyler Anthony Jackson is pictured living it up with his Jr. Class friends from Crystal River High School at Wet and Wild!

Poitevent does nothing else until December 16, 2009 when she claims she took the other four victims to the Children’s Advocacy Center for a forensic interview. Her investigation ends here!
From that date on she does nothing on this case until February 4, 2010. Why?

On the afternoon of February 3, 2010 at 4:07 PM the new Green Isle administrator Paula Whetro (whom Poitevent states in her report of Feb 8, 2010 she is surprised to find is the new administrator) called the LCSO to report a disgruntled employee is making harassing, emails, texts and phone calls to her. She does not disclose the contents or issues. Yet and still this response by Deputy Walker regarding this disgruntled employee was not given a new case number it was made a part of case (#09 191988) the rapes report of November 21, 2009. The report identifies the former employee as Clayton Berkey, but no where in the report does it state what the contents of his messages and concerns were.
