Homosexual School Teachers Arrested For Child Molestation.

~~
Longtime Syracuse University assistant coach Bernie Fine is the subject of a police investigation into allegations that he molested a team ball boy for more than a dozen years, starting in the mid-1980s, according to an ESPN report. The alleged victim, Bobby Davis, told ESPN that Fine began molesting him in 1983 just before Davis entered seventh grade. According to the report, Davis says the abuse happened at Fine’s home, Syracuse basketball facilities and on road trips, including the 1987 Final Four. Davis spent six years as Syracuse’s ball boy. Fine is in his 35th season as a Syracuse assistant to Jim Boeheim. He has been placed on administrative leave.

Davis, now 39, says the abuse continued until he was 27 and reported the abuse to Syracuse police in 2003, but detectives told him the statute of limitations had expired and they would not investigate. ESPN investigated the story in 2003, but decided not to run the story because Davis was the only person willing to talk. The Syracuse Post-Standard also investigated the allegations in 2003. The news is emerging now because another alleged victim says he was sexually abused by Fine and is coming forward now because of news coverage of the Jerry Sandusky sexual-abuse scandal at Penn State, according to ESPN’s story.

According to the New York Penal Code, there is no statute of limitations “for prosecuting first-degree rape, first-degree criminal sexual act, or first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child,” but the statute of limitations “for other sexual offenses committed against a child under age 18 is five years after the victim reaches age 18, or the offense is reported to a law enforcement agency or statewide central register of child abuse and maltreatment, whichever is earlier.”

Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim released a statement in support of Fine:''This matter was fully investigated by the University in 2005 and it was determined that the allegations were unfounded. I have known Bernie Fine for more than 40 years. I have never seen or witnessed anything to suggest that he would [have] been involved in any of the activities alleged. Had I seen or suspected anything, I would have taken action. Bernie has my full support.''

In a statement by Syracuse University:“We understand that the Syracuse City Police has now reopened the case, and Syracuse University will cooperate fully. We are steadfastly committed to ensuring that SU remains a safe place for every student”.

CA, Bakersfield - 12/7/2011
Ex-Tehachapi councilman faces new sex abuse charges, Awaits sentencing on a prior case

Former Kern County firefighter and Tehachapi City Council member Daniel Shane Reed has been arrested again on sexual abuse charges.

The Kern County Sheriff's Office says Reed, 41, met a 13-year-old boy and had sexual relations with him while he was free on bail from another case of sexual abuse.

Deputies started their investigation Nov. 8. They alleged Reed and the Tehachapi boy started communicating this summer with wireless devices and had sexual encounters in Bakersfield and Tehachapi.

Jail records show Reed was booked Wednesday morning on felony counts of oral copulation with a person under 14 and lewd or lascivious acts with a child under 14.

In the first case, Reed is awaiting sentencing after pleading no contest in October to one misdemeanor count of annoying or molesting a child and one felony count of contact with a minor with intent to commit a sexual offense.

The primary victim in the first case – two teen boys were referenced in court documents – told the detective that he engaged in both anal and oral sex with Reed. The boy said he met Reed through a friend in February, when the three of them went to Pismo Beach. The boy was 16 at that time. The sexual relationship started that weekend, the boy told police.

Follow-up sexual encounters came after Reed took the boy shopping and out to eat, and the two exchanged text messages and had rendezvous at motels, court documents show.

Reed was sworn into City Council office in December 2008, and his term was set to end in November 2012. He resigned from the City Council in July and from his job as a firefighter in October.

He's jailed on $260,000 bail for the new case and is set for sentencing Jan. 4 in the former case.

you are confusing pedophilia with homosexuality.

Colorado, Longmont - 12/2/2011
Ex-Boy Scout Volunteer Charged with Child Sexual Assault

A former volunteer at San Isabel Boy Scout Ranch has been bound over for trial for sexual assault on a child in Longmont, and law-enforcement officials are worried there could be more victims from the camp, including at least two from Pueblo County.

James Rienholdt "Butch" Cahill, 56, of Leadville is free on $100,000 bail after a preliminary hearing in Longmont on Thursday. He is charged with one count of sexual assault on a child by one in a position of trust, said Longmont police Detective Stacey Graham.

"We have one charge, but multiple people have stepped forward against Cahill," she said Thursday by phone. Graham said that three alleged victims, in addition to the boy he has been charged with assaulting, are from the Longmont area. "One victim is 39 and, like (two others), the statute of limitations has run out on (potential offenses)."

Cahill was a volunteer at the ranch for about 10 years, as recently as last summer, according to a letter sent to more than 240 families of Scouts who attended the camp over the past decade, notifying them of the former archery/shooting instructor’s charges and asking whether any scouts had been victimized. The letter stated that the Boy Scouts are fully cooperating with the investigation.

"We are concerned because of the longtime abuse of his victim here," Satur said. "The boy he is charged with abusing was 8 when it began and it continued until the boy was 13. Because of the nature of these crimes, and Cahill's history, we're worried about his time at the Scout camp. "Unfortunately, we would not be surprised if there were more victims."

Cahill’s 20-page arrest affidavit paints a pattern of years of sexual abuse on a boy, now 15, and similar abuse on a now 39-year-old man. Longmont police said the statute of limitations has passed when it comes to prosecuting Cahill in the older case.

Graham said Cahill is divorced, with one biological daughter and stepsons.

Jeff Berger, executive director of the Boy Scouts’ Rocky Mountain Council since last year, said he didn’t know Cahill personally and that Cahill quit working at the ranch mid-season.“We were shocked to hear of the allegations against James. Abuse always had been and is unacceptable in the Boy Scouts. The alleged allegations are not representative of the principles and ideals of the Boy Scouts of America”, Berger said.

Yes. But we are spresding out denying any wealth and will not pay any bills if charged. And if ending up on the street, well I lived a good life and prison will give me three squares a day. You see, this is the greatest vengeance to vengeance. And it is growing. And fun. Come on. There is excitement in this. Spend it all, or the scum will take it.

Texas, Austin - 11/30/2011
Texas State Board takes Further look at Child Sexual Abuse by Child Psychiatrist
- UPDATE of 11/22/2011 article

Texas State mental health officials recently took action to protect patients in their care from abuse. The action comes after the American Statesman (A.S.) reported on reports of child sexual abuse lodged against Dr. Charles Fischer. Fischer, 59, a former child psychiatrist at Austin State Hospital, was allowed to continue working at the facility while the reports of abuse were investigated. He has since been fired from his state job on November 14 and his medical license has been temporarily suspended. After it was reported that Fischer was working with patients while under investigation for abuse, Mike Maples, assistance commissioner for mental health and substance abuse services, issued rules that included mandatory transfers or emergency leave for staff members under investigation for abusing patients. Also included in the rules is one against locking doors to treatment rooms during staff-patient sessions. Legislators should take a look at what needs to be done to protect patients who need the services because they are often unable to protect themselves.

Documents reviewed by the board show that Fischer was accused of abuse by at least nine youths. The board took the action because Fischer presented “a continuing threat to the public welfare”. The A.S. reported that seven Austin State Hospital patients between the ages of 13 and 17 made reports against Fischer between 2001 and 2006. Two other cases involving teenage boys reportedly under Fischer’s care in San Antonio and Waco are also being investigated.

A Travis County grand jury heard accusations of sexual abuse of a child against Fischer in 2002 but did not bring charges against him. Four law enforcement agencies have joined in an investigation. No charges have been filed yet.

California, Long Beach - 2/3/2011
Ex-Napa State Hospital Director Guilty of Sex Abuse
- UPDATE of 3/28/2010 article

A former California state mental hospital director, 63-year-old Claude Foulk, was found guilty of sexually abusing his adopted son in what prosecutors contend was a pattern of preying on young boys that spanned four decades. Prosecutors say another 11 men came forward to claim that Foulk molested them as children, dating back to 1965, but only the son’s case could be prosecuted because of the statute of limitations. Foulk worked as a nurse, obtained a master’s in business administration, and held previous state jobs before working at Napa State Hospital. He was a foster parent to two boys and adopted two sons. The prosecutor argued that Foulk used the foster care system to acquire boys to meet his insatiable sexual appetite, knowing they had no parents to turn to.

He could face a maximum sentence of up to 248 years in prison when he is sentenced Feb. 23.

Homosexual School Teachers Arrested For Child Molestation

Jaymee Wallace, 28: Basketball coach in Tampa, Fla., charged with having an 18-month lesbian relationship with a student. Authorities say the student, who was 15 when she met Wallace, voluntarily had sex with the coach more than 50 times, in a parking lot at Busch Gardens and often at Wallace's own apartment while a fellow classmate was in an adjacent room. According to the police report, the sexual relationship reportedly began in early 2003, after the student received a note from Wallace saying she "found her attractive and wanted to know if she felt the same way." On Dec. 5, 2007, Wallace was sentenced to three years of prison, followed by three years of sex offender probation. In late October 2009, the former student filed suit against the school district for failing to protect her, alleging the school didn't properly investigate the teacher before her hiring and didn't immediately tell the girl's parents when it discovered the relationship. The lawsuit says the girl suffered "embarrassment, mental anguish and physical illness."

.

Lynn Saunders, 38: A former basketball star at the College of Staten Island, the gym teacher at St. Paul's School in New Brighton, N.Y., was arrested in March 2005 for allegedly molesting a 12-year-old girl whose family she had befriended. Saunders admitted to touching the girl's breasts and genital area on several dates in February 2005. She received no jail time, only probation and registration as a sex offender. The family is now suing Saunders and the Archdiocese of New York, claiming the girl became suicidal and still suffers from "severe emotional shock, trauma, embarrassment, anxiety and other psychological injuries."

.

Megan Sainsbury, 31: The physical education teacher and former coach at Prospect High School in Saratoga, Calif., was arrested Monday, March 9, 2009, on three misdemeanor counts of "annoying or molesting'' a 17-year-old female student, according to court documents. Her arrest was the third for a lesbian teacher in the same district within a two week period. "You probably noticed that several teachers have been arrested on these types of charges lately," said Santa Clara County Supervising Deputy District Attorney Mike Fletcher. "But teachers are no more likely than doctors, lawyers or newspaper reporters to commit these crimes. Sex crimes affect a wide cross-section of demographics. I think it's just a fluke."

.

Melissa Chase, 29: Harlem High School coach in Harlem, Ga., was released from prison on July 31, 2009, after serving only three years of a 10-year sentence. The Georgia Supreme Court overturned her 2006 sentence, saying the age of consent should have been allowed as evidence along with the 16-year-old female student's testimony that she "wanted" the relationship.
.

Pamela Balogh, 39: Gym teacher and coach at a Somerset, N.J. Catholic high school was charged in December 2006 with sexually assaulting a 15-year-old female student over a period of 10 months. Authorities say the assaults happened mainly in Balogh's office.

Homosexual School Teachers Arrested For Child Molestation

~

Rita Brum, 24: The teacher at Mount Pleasant High School in East San Jose, Calif., was arraigned March 12, 2009, on charges of having sexual relations with a minor – a 17-year-old female student. The girl's mother discovered a love letter written to her daughter by the first-year teacher and assistant soccer coach and confronted the woman and pulled her hair. "Rita is a very good person who made a mistake," Brum's attorney said. "She had some issues in her past that may have led her to make this choice. We're only hoping that we can avoid significant jail time. She's taken responsibility and she is trying to improve herself and get clarity so this won't happen again."

Shannon Best, 33: Social studies teacher at Sanderson High School in Raleigh, N.C., resigned April 14, 2008, after being charged with taking indecent liberties with an 18-year-old female student. A police spokesman indicated the encounter occurred at a residence but would not specify the location. Although the alleged victim is of legal age, police said criminal charges were being pursued because of the teacher-student nature of the alleged encounter. Best was released from the Wake County jail after posting a $5,000 bond. On June 18, 2008, Best pleaded guilty to a charge of misdemeanor attempted crime against nature and giving alcohol to a student. She received a 45-day suspended jail sentence, 18 months unsupervised probation, and was ordered to pay a $250 fine and court costs. She did not have to register as a sex offender.

Shebana Rajput, 35: Biology and physical science instructor since August 2005 at Jones Senior High School in Trenton, N.C., resigned her position May 21, 2008 – just two days before she was arrested in her home for alleged sexual conduct with a 17-year-old student whose gender was not released. Sheriff's officials say she had sexual relations with the teen in her home on nine separate occasions between March and May of 2008. Rajput was charged with eight counts of sexual activity with a student and one count of sex offense with a student. She was held on $100,000 bail as authorities looked into the possibility she was involved with additional students.

In a federal lawsuit, nine men say they were abused by former football coach Phil Foglietta from 1966 until the early 1980s.

Brooklyn’s Poly Prep Country Day School is coming under fire for its alleged four-decade cover-up of “prolonged and horrific sexual abuse of many of its sons” by its late iconic football coach, Phil Foglietta.

In a federal lawsuit, nine men say they were abused by Foglietta from 1966 until the early 1980s, the Daily News reports. The suit alleges Poly Prep received complaints about Foglietta shortly after he was hired, but did not take action against him because of his coaching success and fundraising prowess for the highly respected 157-year-old school.

Foglietta might have abused dozens or even hundreds of boys, according to the suit, but top school officials allegedly ignored complaints or threatened to discipline or expel students who reported they were abused.

The plaintiffs are seeking at least $20 million each in compensatory and punitive damages. One of them is David Hiltbrand, 57, who told the News about an episode in the coaches’ locker room shower when he said Foglietta rubbed his shoulders and put his hand between his legs. Hiltbrand jumped away and into scalding water, then saw the coach groping other boys, he said.

“It was so terrifying,” Hiltbrand told the paper.“It made me feel like I had done something wrong. I come from a Roman Catholic family and I just knew I was going to hell.”

Foglietta was Poly Prep’s football coach and a physical education instructor for students between 5th and 12th grades from 1966 until 1991. The school did not renew his contract. He died in 1998. The lawsuit was filed two years ago. School lawyers have filed to dismiss it.

“It would not be appropriate to comment upon specific allegations now pending in a federal court,” Headmaster David Harman said in a statement to the News.“The school believes that a lawsuit seeking tens of millions of dollars in damages based on conduct that took place largely in the 1960s and 1970s is not actionable.” Herman is a defendant in the suit, along with former headmaster William M. Williams, the school, and various members of its board of trustees.

The case echoes the recent coaching abuse scandals at Penn State and Syracuse University, but Poly Prep officials rejected such comparisons, according to the News.

The iconic coach is not mentioned on the school’s website.

Homosexual School Teachers Arrested For Child Molestation

Tennessee, Chattanooga - 12/5/2011
Alleged Molestation Victims Speak out about their molestation experience by former teacher and coach


On the heels of two well-publicized national cases of child sexual abuse by coaches, some local men who say they were victims of alleged abuse by a coach are speaking out.

The men told NewsChannel 9 the abuse started while they were at Ooltewah Middle School in the 1980's. They're grown now and speaking out, hoping their story will help others find the courage to come forward as well.

"It's something that we dealt with in 6, 7, and 8 grade. Again, it's something that's come out with Syracuse and Penn State," Andy Ellington, who says he was molested, told us.

In fact, Ellington denied the abuse at first too. "I didn't want people to know. I definitely didn't want anyone to know at Ooltewah. I didn't want my mother to know. My mother was a single mom. My father died when I was 7. So this was something I did not want her to have to deal with," he said.

He says he was just 11 years old the first time anything happened and says he lost count of how many times he was allegedly molested by Stan Evans, a former teacher and coach at Ooltewah Middle School. Evans was close with many of his athletes and Ellington says he and others frequently spent the night at his home.

"The majority of the time, the real, if you were to call it fondling and things like that, was always off school premises. But I can't even imagine how many conduct unbecoming on school premises there were," Ellington said, recalling those difficult memories.

Michael Mercer says he's one of Evan's victims, too. He didn't want to speak on camera but explained to WGOW today, how the abuse started with Evans rubbing his shoulders.

"So then it goes from rubbing the shoulders, to a kiss on the forehead. Then it goes from a kiss on the forehead, to lets see how fast you can get undressed. Then lets pop your naked bottom," Mercer said.

Mercer and Ellington, along with two other men, filed a lawsuit against Evans in 1999 claiming they were molested on multiple occasions. However, the statute of limitations was up and Evans abruptly resigned from OMS and moved to Florida. Since then, they've been trying to heal and both hope their story can spare other kids the same experience.

"I do hope that the Hamilton County Board of Education will have an opportunity to have some kind of a standard operation procedure in place, to where if they do have these issues, it'll be taken care of without being swept under the rug. I can assure you in '98 it was," Ellington said. Ellington says he feels like he's healed from this mostly thanks to family and his church.

But he says, even with that, he still doesn't have closure with Coach Evans and he hopes hearing his story will help someone who's been through a similar situation. We tried to contact Evans to get his side of the story, but were unable to find any contact information for him.

Homosexual School Teachers Arrested For Child Molestation

~


The ex-leader of the AAU accused of molesting young boys years ago is said to have snuck into the rooms of former underage basketball players at night to fondle them.He is also accused of keeping bags of boys' underwear with names and dates on them.

The Memphis police are investigating the claims and the ex-AAU leader has left his job, citing health concerns.

"The Memphis Police Department takes allegations of child sexual abuse very seriously," Memphis Police Director Toney Armstrong said, according to CBS News. "Although this case has its challenges due to the amount of time that has passed, it will be thoroughly examined; and if the investigation reveals the law was violated, the person responsible will be held accountable."

A report from ESPN said two men have accused former AAU president and CEO Robert "Bobby" Dodd of molesting them as children. The men said they approached Dodd independently about the matter after the Penn State scandal broke in November involving former Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky. Since that time, allegations have also surfaced that former assistant Syracuse coach Bernie Fine molested children, including a team ball boy.

Among the allegations against Dodd:

--Dodd kept hundreds of photos of other players clothed backsides and crotches in filing cabinets.

--Dodd had bags filled with pairs of teenage boys' underwear and kept names and dates on them.

--Dodd kept samples of boys' hair.

--West said Dodd once tried to pay him $1,000 to let him perform oral sex while the player was blindfolded and bound.

--The unidentified player believes Dodd abused him while passed out after serving him alcohol and a drug to make him unconscious.

West said he contacted the AAU via email on Nov. 9 alleging that Dodd was a pedophile by that nobody followed up, according to ESPN.

The AAU said late Friday it is investigating the claims that date from the 1980s. One of the former players who claims abuse is 43-year-old Ralph West, who told ESPN's "Outside the Lines" that he was sexually assaulted in Memphis in 1984. West reportedly now lives in Miami. Another unidentified man also claims that he was abused by Dodd. He spoke with ESPN "on the condition of anonymity," according to The Associated Press, explaining that he called Dodd on Nov. 11. He said Dodd apologized for the abuse.

The two men allege that the abuse from Dodd occurred between the ages of 12 and 16. They were basketball players for Memphis-based AAU teams headed by Dodd at the time. The men allege Dodd "fondled them and masturbated in front of them while they were in their teens. Neither man reported the abuse to the police," according to The New York Daily News.

ESPN reported that West accuses Dodd of fondling him, and said Dodd tried to fondle him or masturbated in front of him at Dodd's home in Memphis, the AAU Junior Olympics in South Bend, Ind., and tournaments in Florida, Louisiana and Tennessee, according to the AP. ESPN said West alleges that Dodd abused him or tried to abuse him roughly six times between 1983 and 1985 by sneaking into his room "in the middle of the night and you don't hear anything ... and he's trying to reach his hand in your underwear, basically."

Dodd led the AAU, or Amateur Athletic Union, since 1992 but reportedly retired just recently, on Nov. 29. An ESPN reporter contacted Dodd's assistant, who sent an email saying that Dodd has cancer and had recently retired for health reasons, ESPN said. But Dodd's departure was apparently abrupt, as other AAU officials contacted seemed unaware that Dodd has left the organization.

"The AAU has recently been made aware of some serious allegations about President Robert W.'Bobby' Dodd, dating back several decades," the statement said. "The AAU has opened an independent investigation into these matters and also has contacted local law enforcement in Memphis, where the activities allegedly occurred.
