It is not uncommon for children to tell when they have been removed and placed in foster care. Child molesters make me physically ill. I think that some crimes should be exempt from not being allowed to tell the name of the offender. Can you imagine how dangerous he will be as an adult. How would you like to have a sexual predator hanging at your house and because "he is underage" know nothing of his past until he hurts one of yours)

Nothing will ever happen to any of them. Look at Jule Peek and Keith Kelley. Three years since they were arrested and nothing. They have actually caught Defacs employees molesting kids in their care. A female was molesting a 15 year old girl and was her case worker. She got probation and still works with her parents at the pizza farm. It is all a big joke.
yuck

The more money one of these perverts has ,the longer they can avoid the "SELECTIVE ARM of JUSTICE".
Their crooked lawyers (take your pick)use the "Stall They,ll Forget" tactic .
Or the pervert will simply die from old age .
Only when their lawyer /leach on the a-- of society has been successful in gaming the system and the offenders money runs out will they sometimes be brought to court to face the judge.
Who is an ex lawyer /leash on the A-- of society also.
No wonder there are so many of these predators among us !!!!!!

From The Fish Wrap... this is happening in Walker Co. because that is where he was arrested for this crime. Read the article below...does not sound like it is being swept under the rug & it should not be swept under the rug!!!

Detective: Peek should enter plea or face trial by jury

Julius Winfrey Peek The case of a local businessman arrested in a child-sex sting will not quietly go away, according to a detective involved with the case.

Det. David Scroggins with Rossville Police Department and the the Northwest Georgia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, said real estate businessman Julius Winfrey Peek, 68, of Cedartown, will have to answer the charges against him.

“He is absolutely going to either plea or going to trial. I guarantee that,” Scroggins said.

Peek was arrested February 14, 2009, in Rossville on charges of attempt of child molestation, sexual exploitation of a child, computer porn and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

He was released on a $25,000 bond while he awaits trial.

He allegedly traveled to Rossville in Walker County to meet a 14-year-old girl for sex after corresponding over the Internet, according to Rossville police reports. The person posing as a teen was actually an undercover agent. Peek was arrested at the meeting place.

Police reported at the time that he confessed to his intentions.

However, officials with Walker County District Attorney’s Office said Peek hasn’t been indicted by a grand jury yet. Assistant District Attorney Beth Evans said in February she was waiting on some additional evidence from the police.

A call to the district attorney’s office this week resulted in officials saying the “status of the case remains the same.”

Scroggins said police did have some computer-based evidence that didn’t transfer very well when submitting it to the district attorney’s office, but that was resolved.

“They have everything that we have involved in Mr. Peek’s case,” he said.

Scroggins said a possibility for the delay in an indictment is a negotiation between the district attorney’s office and Peek’s attorney for a plea agreement.

The detective said he isn’t worried about how long this case is taking.

“It’s not wrong for a case to go two years or more before going to trial,” Scroggins said.“Some cases are older that this case and haven’t gone to trial.”

Scroggins was quite clear that the Peek name would have no influence on the Walker County judicial system. He said no one has called him asking for favors for Peek and they wouldn’t get them if they did.

He said the regional task force has arrested more than 100 people from many different counties and states in the past few years in child-sex sting operations. He said that list includes teachers, law enforcement officials, and preachers.

“We don’t care who they are or what they are. We arrest them when they show up,” he said.

Don't believe AT ALL that Pinion would have done what he's been charged with. There are lots of cases out there where the so-called victim has made up the story and I believe this is one of them.

Sometimes kids (and adults) make up vicious stories in cases where they are pissed over something and want to get back at the adult. It happens many times so you have to remember that these arrets and charges are not always what they seem to be. There ARE some dangerous and evil kids out there too. Not trying to take up for the adults who are actual perps -- they need to be dealt with without question. Just saying that some are innocent and the evil kids need to be dealt with as well.
