Florida Cop Gets Life in Prison for Paying to See Girl Raped

Saturday, April 28th, 2018

I will start off by saying that this story brought tears to my eyes, so much so that I didn’t know that I could finish writing the story. Nevertheless I have a job to do and it requires a tough skin.
A former Jacksonville, Florida police officer has been sentenced to life in prison for paying a Texas woman to sexually abuse her 3-year-old daughter and send photos to the officer.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office sent out a news release noting that former Jacksonville Police Officer Michael Eugene Williams was sentenced on Monday. He pleaded guilty in June 2017 to sex trafficking of a child.
The investigation began after the sheriff’s office received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. A search of Williams’ mobile home on Normandy Boulevard uncovered hundreds of child pornography images and videos. 450 images and videos of child pornography were found on Williams’ cellphone, along with an explicit 18-second video of a young naked girl, court documents state.
In February 2016 the 61-year-old Williams met the Texas woman on the internet and asked her to photograph the sexual abuse of her then-3-year-old daughter and to sell the images to him. The mother consented and sent over 50 videos and pictures of her sexually abusing her own daughter.
Williams would ask the mother to send photos of the little girl performing sexual acts on the mother and other people also. Prosecutors say that Williams sent at least 19 Western Union wire transfer payments to the mother.
Williams received life in prison and the woman received 60 years in prison after pleading guilty to two counts of production of child pornography.
As part of his sentencing Williams was ordered to pay $194,905 to the victim, who is still a child, and forfeit electronic equipment used in the sex trafficking, including a

North Carolina Ex-Cop Writes Jail Letters to Teen Girl he Impregnated, Resulting in Further Prison Time

Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

It is not uncommon for men to get lonely in jail, but a fired North Carolina police officer took it too far when he attempted to contact a now 15-year-old girl he impregnated.
James Blair, 51, is a former cop with the Lowell Police Department. PINAC News first reported on how he impregnated a 14-year-old girl in 2016.
Blair has been in prison since March 2017 after he plead guilty to felony statutory rape. He was sentenced to at least 12 years in prison.
Blair attempted to write his female victim a jailhouse style letter and he succeeded several times, sending the letters to family members with instructions to forward it to the teen victim.
Eventually, prison officials were able to intercept the letters before they even made it out of the prison.
But by then, Blair had already sent the girl several letters, even though the sentencing judge gave him specific instructions not to contact the victim.
Now he will have to serve an extra two years in prison.
Blair’s infractions are considered a Class B offense, which includes communicating directly, indirectly, via a third party, or in any manner with victims, or family members of the victims.
“I was amazed that he was stupid enough to do it,” said Gaston County District Attorney Locke Bell
The victim’s mother stated the following about the concerning the letters:
“It makes me want to kill him. Whatever with jail. Jail doesn’t mean anything. The man is still doing it. Apparently he’s getting by with everything. I called the prison several times and said there’s letters getting out. Every time I try to push this back out of my mind, he just continuously does this. This child is (now) 15 years old. This has made her sick.”
But even while Blair was in jail awaiting trial, he attempted to contact the victim via

Maryland Cop Convicted for Ramming Fleeing Man with Patrol Car

Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017

A Maryland cop who rammed a fleeing suspect with his patrol car was found guilty by a jury last Wednesday and now faces up to 10 years in prison, according to WTOP.
The incident was caught on the officer’s own dash cam.
Prince George’s County police officer Juan Hernandez was convicted of one count of second-degree assault for ramming 22-year-old Ulrich Boaoutou with his police cruiser as Boaotou fled on foot.
Hernandez, 42, was one of two officers who responded to a call about a fight between two potentially armed suspects on June 13, 2016.
A caller reported to police three men were arguing when the two other men threatened to shoot him. While one officer was patting down Boaoutou, checking him for weapons, he took off running into an open field.
As the officer chased on foot, Hernandez pulled up to the scene and saw Boaotou running and began pursuing him before rammed him with his patrol car.
Thankfully, Boaotou wasn’t injured and refused medical attention.
Hernandez’s supervisor reported the incident and he was suspended the next day.
The Prince George’s County Police Department conducted an internal affairs investigation into the incident and forwarded it to the Prince George’s County Attorney’s Office to review for possible criminal charges.
In December, a grand jury issued an indictment against Hernandez.
County Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said in a statement Hernandez’s actions “were unwarranted given the circumstances of the incident.”
“While it’s never a good day when we have to prosecute one of our own, it’s important that those we serve understand that we will hold people accountable when their actions go above and beyond what is necessary,” Alsobrooks said.
Hernandez, an 11-year-veteran of the Prince George’s County Police Department, faces up to 10 years in prison, will undergo an internal administrative review and could receive a dismissal from the department.
He’s scheduled for sentencing on July 28.

Rhode Island Cop Convicted for Assaulting Child while Suspended for Assaulting 9-Year-Old Sister

Wednesday, April 19th, 2017

A Rhode Island cop ordered to serve 10 years in prison in 2014 after he was convicted of second-degree child abuse for choking his 9-year-old sister and dragging her by her hair was convicted again earlier this month for assaulting another child.
Woonsocket police officer Patrick Cahill, 28, was suspended from the Woonsocket Police Department, but has not been fired since the incident in 2012 after his sentence was stayed and remains currently under appeal in the Supreme Court.
Since his 2014 conviction, a judge has allowed officer Cahill to remain free while he appeals.
But Cahill was arrested again on March 27 for punching a 16-year-old student in the face, bloodying his nose and putting him in the headlock during a weight-training session at Woonsocket High School where he volunteers with the football team.
Patrick Cahill was found guilty by a judge for assaulting another child after he was suspended from his department for a separate child abuse charge in 2012 involving his 9-year-old sister.
Superior Court Judge Daniel Procaccini found Cahill guilty of simple assault on April 7 after he pleaded no contest to the charges, found him guilty of violating his bail, and sentenced him to 40 days retroactive to March 27, the date of his arrest.
Procaccini ordered Cahill take anger management and to have no contact with the victim.
According to a police report, a school resource officer reported to police he was approached by a student bleeding from his nose and crying on March 27.
The student said he’d been punched and put in a headlock, gesturing at Cahill, explaining that’s when the volunteer coach took him to the ground and put him in a headlock.
Police stated eyewitness account corroborated the kid’s account and were consistent with his verbal and written statements.
Cahill claimed the student became argumentative, refused to leave and “got in his face” after the student became disruptive and he asked him to leave.

Louisiana Cop who Shot and Killed 6-Year-Old Autistic Boy Sentenced to 40 Years

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

A Louisiana cop who shot and killed a 6-year-old autistic boy and wounded his father was sentenced to 40 years in prison for the crime on Friday.
“He shot 14 times while my hands were in the air,” said Chris Few, the boy’s father, who testified in court about the incident.
“He just kept shooting.”
Marksville city marshal Derrick Walker Stafford had previously been indicted in two separate cases on charges of aggravated rape 2004 and 2011. The victim involved in the 2004 allegations was 15-years-old.
Rapides Parish Assistant District Attorney Monique Metoyer dismissed the charges without explanation in 2012.
In addition to previous sexual assault charges, Stafford had six civil rights lawsuits pending against him from his time working for various other law enforcement agencies when he fired 14 shots into Chris Few’s Kia SUV, hitting and killing his son, 6-year-old Jeremy Mardis.
Now, Stafford’s relatives claim the jury’s guilty verdict is nothing more than a modern day “lynching.”
“If it had been two white men who killed that little baby, it would’ve been justifiable homicide. If it had been a black baby, it would’ve been justifiable homicide,” Bertha Andrews, Stafford’s aunt, told a crowd outside the courthouse on Friday before she took to calling out the media, who she blames for “demonizing” her nephew.
Stafford stated at the time he fired over a dozen shots into Few’s car while Few held up his hands outside of his vehicle because he was only trying to protect his partner, Norris Greenhouse Jr., who had fallen on the ground before Few tried to run him over, using his car as a weapon.
Stafford’s own body cam footage left no questions.
That was a lie.
Stafford’s body cam footage shows the car not only never moved but was parked at an angle where it could not have backed into either of the cops even if

Washington Cop Sentenced to Jail for Pepper Spraying Restrained Man

Wednesday, March 22nd, 2017

Nick Hogan was such an abusive douche of a cop that not even his fellow officers liked him, calling for his termination last year after it was discovered he was having an affair with one of their wives.
So it is unlikely they are bothered by the fact that the Washington cop was sentenced to nine months in jail Tuesday for pepper spraying a man who was restrained in a gurney inside a hospital in 2011.
Hogan, who was a Tukwila cop at the time, claimed the restrained victim had “triggered his threat response” by taunting him after Hogan had delivered three “knee strikes” to his head before shoving and tackling him inside the hospital, prompting protests from hospital staff.
But his superiors did not buy that excuse, asking Hogan why didn’t he just walk away from the man who was physically unable to hurt him considering he was strapped to a gurney, according to the Seattle Times.
Hogan, who had already cost the city of Tukwila $425,000 in previous excessive force lawsuits, including one where he purposely broke a man’s ankle, then forced him to walk on it, was fired in 2012 for the pepper spraying incident.
But he then landed a job 30 minutes away with the Snoqualmie Police Department despite the fact that his well-publicized history of abuse against African-American men led to his application being rejected by several other agencies, including the Seattle Police Department.
Even his fellow cops at the Tukwila Police Department, who are also known to be abusive, said they did not like working with him because he had a tendency to escalate situations.
And it didn’t take long for his abusive tactics to surface at the Snoqualmie Police Department where he ended up placed on paid administrative leave four times for different abuse incidents, costing taxpayers almost $35,000 for his

NYPD Cop Convicted of Raping 13-Year-old Girl and Forcing her to Perform Oral Sex on him

Tuesday, January 31st, 2017

A New York City police officer was convicted Monday of raping his girlfriend’s 13-year-old daughter as well as forcing her to perform oral sex on him in his car after he drove her to a father/daughter breakfast at her eighth-grade class.
Vladimir Krull, who will be sentenced on March 6, is facing up to 21 years in prison.
The 39-year-old man, who has since been fired from the NYPD, was ordered jailed without bail until his sentencing.
Krull had dated the girl’s mother for two years when he kissed her on the mouth in September 2013, according to DNA Info.
That progressed to him having sex with her on two occasions, including once inside her home, another time inside his car.
Then in June 2014, he ordered her to perform oral sex on him after he drove her to the father/daughter breakfast at her school.
Krull’s lawyer, Roger Blank, said he was disappointed in the verdict because there was no physical evidence linking him to the crime, including DNA and text messages.
The girl also testified he had an apple-sized heart tattoo with a ribbon around it, but his attorney said he had no such tattoo.
Nevertheless, after deliberating for five days, the jury convicted him of second-degree rape, second-degree criminal sexual act, sexual abuse and child endangerment.
Krull was arrested in February 2015 after the girl’s mother reported him to police, sparking an internal affairs investigation.
Two months before his arrest, he was hailed as a hero for catching a bank robber.

Missouri Cop Sentenced to Seven Years in Prison for Abusing Boy Will Serve Only 60 Days

Wednesday, December 28th, 2016

A Missouri cop was handed a promotion in March 2015, less than a month after losing his temper and throwing a four-year-old boy against the wall, slamming his head into a cabinet.
Leadwood Police Sergeant Jay R. Bellis also admitted to pulling the boy’s ears, causing them to bleed, because the boy had misbehaved at daycare.
Bellis’ promotion was short-lived, however, as he was arrested on felony child endangerment charges three weeks later, which led to his resignation.
Last week, the 39-year-old former cop was sentenced to seven years in prison, according to the Daily Journal.
But Bellis won’t be serving any hard time in prison because the judge quickly suspended that sentence to five years probation.
However, Associate Circuit Judge Wendy Wexler Horn did order Bellis to serve 60 days of so-called “shock time” in the St. Francois County Jail.
The incident took place in Bellis’ home on February 24, 2015. The boy lived in his household, but his relationship with the boy has not been publicized.
He was rehired by the Leadwood Police Department on March 12, 2015. And promoted to sergeant shortly after.
And he was arrested on April 2, 2015, but was quickly released after posting a $50,000 bond.
According to the police report, Bellis admitted throwing the young boy against the wall after losing his temper.
Bellis pleaded guilty to felony child endangerment in October.
Judge Horn then ordered a “Sentencing Assessment Report” on his’ criminal, professional and social histories and set a future date for sentencing, which was last week.
Upon considering the factors of the case, Judge Horn sentenced Bellis to seven years in the Missouri State Department of Corrections before suspending the sentence to probation.
Bellis previously worked for Leadwood police between 2011 to 2014 and then the St. Francois County Sheriff’s Department before he was rehired at Leadwood.
In addition to court costs, Bellis was ordered

Former Massachusetts Cop Sent Back to Prison for Child Porn After Early Release from Prior Child Porn Arrest

Monday, December 26th, 2016

A Massachusetts police officer was convicted of possession of child pornography while on duty in 2011 after mistakenly sending a CD of child porn images to the local district attorney, including photos of himself masturbating to these images inside the evidence room of his agency.
Alan Vigiard, who resigned from the Adams Police Department, was sentenced to two years in prison, serving a year in prison.
Last week, the former cop was sentenced to prison again for trading and viewing child porn online, even though the conditions of his release forbid him from accessing the internet for five years.
This time, he was sentenced to 10-12 years, according to Mass Live, which reports that from January to November 2016, Vigiard, 51, accessed and uploaded child pornographic images to chat rooms and traded the images with other online creeps at chatstep.com.
In October 2016, police with the Massachusetts Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force received a tip that Vigiard was accessing child pornography.
Police launched an investigation and ended up seizing Vigiard’s phone, tablet, and computer in November 2016. On the devices police found child pornographic images and evidence that Vigiard was accessing the internet.
Police also obtained a search warrant for Vigiard’s home and vehicle; they found tablets, a USB thumb drive, and cell phone containing adult and child pornography. Also, multiple DVDs and magazines featuring adult pornography were seized during the search warrant execution.
During an interview with authorities Vigiard admitted to viewing child pornography via his electronic devices. Vigiard’s reasoning was that he was battling depression and  became self destructive, which initiated his second run in with child pornography.
On Tuesday Vigiard pleaded guilty to two counts of possession of child pornography and one count of dissemination of child pornography.
His first arrest for child porn came in 2009 after when the married father of two children sent 153

New Orleans Cop Serving Life in Prison has Conviction Reversed Based on Raunchy Texts he Sent to his Girlfriend During Trial

Friday, December 23rd, 2016

A New Orleans cop serving life in prison after he was convicted of raping a seven-year-old girl last year had his conviction overturned Wednesday over texts he was sending to his girlfriend during the trial.
Michael Thomassie, 42, was sending texts to his girlfriend about how he would like her to shave her pubic hair.
The texts were then introduced as evidence to argue that he would be inclined to rape a prepubescent girl  because he preferred no pubic hair.
An appeals court reversed the conviction on the basis that there is no evidence that proves men who prefer adult woman to shave their genital area tend to be pedophiles.
The 4th Circuit stated in its opinion that the judge should never have allowed the texts to be entered as evidence because they “constitute irrelevant, prejudicial appeals to emotion and inflammatory arguments going before the facts of the case,” according to The Times-Picayune. 
The victim in the trial was 19 years old when she testified against him last year, telling the jury that he raped her in 2003 at the age of seven when he was her mother’s live-in boyfriend – who is not the woman he was texting during the trial.
But she did not report the rape until 2013 because her substance-abusing mother was financially dependent on the cop, prosecutors argued.
Also, the 12-year-old son of the cop and the girl’s mother testified on his behalf, claiming that his mother had testified to walking in on the cop raping her daughter to obtain custody of him after his father was sent to prison.
But it was the introduction of the texts that led to the reversal.
During the August 2015 trial, Thomassie sent selfies to his girlfriend while having a raunchy text conversation, apparently not at all concerned that his life was on the line.

Georgia Cop Sentenced to Life in Prison for Tasering Handuffed Man to Death

Wednesday, December 21st, 2016

In a judicial decision that is sure to send shock waves throughout the law enforcement community, a Georgia cop was sentenced to life in prison Wednesday for tasering a handcuffed man to death in 2014.
On April 11, 2014, East Point Police Sergeant Marcus Eberhart was upset at having chased Gregory Towns through the woods after responding to a call of domestic violence.
But Towns, 24, became winded and had given up by the time Eberhart and his partner, Corporal Howard Weems, caught up to him as we reported last year when the cops were indicted.
The cops handcuffed him and ordered him to walk, but Towns said he was too tired to walk, so he asked the cops ten times for a few minutes to allow him to catch his breath.
But the cops started tasering him in an attempt to get him walk, tasering him 10 times within a 30-minute period, including one point where he was in the water in a creek.
He ended up dying on the scene.
A witness photographed the above photo, which was used as evidence against the cops.
Weems was sentenced to only five years in prison and will only have to serve 18 months because he was found not guilty of felony murder and aggravated assault, but guilty of involuntary manslaughter, reckless conduct and violation of oath of office.
Corporal Howard Weeks, left, and Sergeant Marcus Eberhart, right.
According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the judge did not have the leeway to offer Eberhart a lighter sentence because he was found guilty on all charges, including felony murder and aggravated assault.
An autopsy determined that Towns suffered from heart disease, which was used as an excuse by the officers’ attorneys for his death, but the jury did not buy it.
The defense attorneys also argued that police have the right to taser people when

Miami-Dade Cop Receives Ten Months Probation for Shooting Corrections Officer in Road Rage Incident, then Trying to Destroy Evidence

Friday, December 16th, 2016

Miami-Dade police officer Jonathan Lang could have received more than 20 years in prison for shooting at a car driven by a corrections officer in a 2014 road rage incident.
Especially considering he was caught on camera tampering with evidence in the hours after the shooting.
But he cried before the judge during his sentencing Thursday, blaming his actions on his “personal demons.”
And that apparently was enough for the judge to spare him any prison time, sentencing him to 10 months probation instead.
He must also forfeit his law enforcement certificate and his firearms, abstain from drugs and alcohol and perform 500 hours of community service, the latter which can be a cakewalk if you know the right people.
And somebody with his Blue Privilege will always know the right people.
Lang was riding in the passenger seat of a car driven by his wife in July 2014 when he became angry at the driver of another car driven by Miami-Dade Corrections Officer Georgina Illa.
She said they cut her off. He says she cut them off. At one point, she flashed her high beams at them before trying to pass them on the Florida Turnpike.
Lang, who was 42 at the time, rolled down his window and threw a plastic bottle at her car.
He then pulled out his gun and fired, the bullet tearing through the rear of the car and ending up lodged in the passenger seat.
Illa, who was not injured, flagged down a Miami-Dade cop, not realizing her attacker was also a Miami-Dade cop.
A Florida state trooper then pulled Lang and his wife over and noticed a fuse panel behind the glove compartment appeared “to be disturbed,” which led him to be believe Lang had hidden the gun there.
The car was impounded at a tow truck lot while the Florida Highway Patrol waited to obtain

California Cop Sentenced to 180 Days for Killing DUI Suspect After Rollover Crash

Saturday, December 10th, 2016

The California cop convicted of manslaughter for shooting and killing a DUI suspect in a rollover crash was sentenced to 180 days in jail Friday.
Former Paradise police officer Patrick Feaster, who was also sentenced to 36 months probation, was facing up to five years in prison for the involuntary manslaughter conviction.
Feaster, who was fired from the Paradise Police Department, is also apparently still facing charges from being arrested with his brother on drunk and disorderly charges in March.
Prosecutors were asking for a three-year sentence, but Judge James F. Reilley reasoned Feaster had obeyed the terms of his bond and probation, which is why he allowed Feaster to serve the majority of his sentence on probation.
The victim, Andrew Thomas, had left a bar without his headlights on at a high rate of speed, hitting a median rolling the SUV. The crash ejected Thomas’ wife and died at the scene. Thomas began to exit the vehicle, which was on its side, through the driver’s side window.
As Thomas tried climbing out of the car, Feaster fired his service weapon, striking Thomas in the neck, causing him to fall back into his vehicle where he was left paralyzed.
Feaster then came to the side of the vehicle telling Thomas to exit, but Thomas responded that he was unable to after being shot. Feaster radioed for help asking for medical assistance and stating Thomas was being difficult and refusing to exit the vehicle.
Feaster was then seen searching on the ground, possibly for shell casings prior to the arrival of assistance.
As other officers arrived, they also tried to coax Thomas out of the vehicle, but Thomas told them he had been shot by Feaster.
However, the cops did not believe him, telling him he had not been shot.
It was only after eleven minutes had passed that police realized he

California Cop Patrick Feaster Guilty of Manslaughter in Shooting Death of DUI Suspect

Tuesday, October 18th, 2016

Former Paradise police officer Patrick Feaster was found guilty of manslaughter today for the shooting death of a DUI suspect last November in an incident captured on his own dash cam.
Feaster, who won numerous awards for the number of DUI arrests he made, faces five years in prison. He has not yet been sentenced.
It was a karmic decision considering Butte County District Attorney Mike Ramsey initially announced he would file no charges against the cop because the shooting was an “accident.”
But Ramsey had a change of heart after a huge national outcry.
Today, during closing statements, Ramsey told the jury the shooting was no accident, according to KRCR News.

District Attorney Mike Ramsey began closing arguments Monday by talking about the victim, Andrew Thomas, calling him the “every man”. Ramsey then delved into Feaster and the kind of officer he was.
“Feaster is the officer that should have known better” Ramsey said, “He made choices that Thanksgiving night”.
Ramsey even held up Feaster’s handgun to show the jury where an officer is supposed to put their finger and the importance of a trigger guard.
“This case is not an accidental shooting. This was a negligent shooting and, as it will show, a criminally negligent shooting.”
The incident took place on November 26, 2015 after Feaster tried to pull over Andrew Thomas, a 26-year-old man who had just left a bar with his wife.
Thomas rolled the van over, ejecting his wife, then stuck his head out the window as Feaster stepped out of his patrol car after pulling up to the scene.
Feaster fired once, striking Thomas, who fell back down into his vehicle.
However, Feaster waited more than ten minutes before informing his supervisor that he had shot Thomas.
Thomas’ wife ended up dying on the scene, but

Florida Cop Sentenced to Jail for Pulling Gun on Couple with Baby in Back Seat

Wednesday, October 12th, 2016

In a case of excessive road rage, Florida sheriff’s deputy Sheila Langlais lost her cool and pulled a gun on an unassuming couple in a car with a 2-year-old in the back seat.
Now the Pinellas County sheriff’s deputy is out of a job and will spend nearly a year in jail in addition to paying a $500 fine.
The embattled deputy has resigned from three law enforcement agencies since 2001.
It all went down on February 7 when Brett Dowd and his fiancee, Brittany Byrne, were driving in the parking lot of Twin Lakes apartment complex to visit friends for a cookout.
As Byrne was driving, she pulled into a parking spot as you normally would.

google_ad_slot = “3606839893”;

google_ad_height = 600;

But the off-duty deputy was also pulling into the spot, which is when all hell broke loose, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Langlais began shouting profanities to Byrne and Dowd, who shouted profanities back.
That was when Langais pulled out her pistol, pointing it at the couple, all while their 2-year-old child was in the backseat.
After apparently gaining some sort of satisfaction from pointing her gun at innocent people, Langlais then drove off.
The couple called police and gave a description of the gun-touting suspect and the vehicle. Police located Langlais’s vehicle within minutes in the complex parking lot.
Subsequently, Langlais was located in a nearby apartment.
As police investigated, Langlais denied carrying a gun. But investigators found Langlais’s gun inside the apartment of a fellow deputy named Sarah Swanner, whom Langlais was visiting that day.
In a last ditch effort to avoid being fired, Langlais resigned the next day.
Even Pinellas Sheriff Bob Gualtieri weighed in on the situation:
“She made a very, very bad decision. I wouldn’t even call it a mistake. It’s a lie. It’s not a mistake.”
The trial concluded on Friday, resulting in Langlais being sentenced to eleven months in county
