Ohio child-sex and human-trafficking sting nabs more than 100, including church leader, ER doctor: report

More than 100 people, including a medical doctor and a church youth director, were arrested as part of a massive human-trafficking and child-sex sting operation based in central Ohio, according to a report.

Those arrested included 24 men caught when they showed up at an undisclosed location with the intention of meeting a child for sex, Maj. Steven Tucker of the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said.

“They show up with sex toys, they show up with lubrication,” Tucker said. “They show up with things that clearly somebody isn’t going to show up to a house with, unless they intended to engage in sexual activity.”

The total group of 104 suspects included Christian Gibson, 26, a former youth director at Redeemer’s at Courtright Church in Columbus, and Austin Kosier, 31, an emergency room doctor, authorities said, adding that the sting was focused on Franklin, Fairfield and Delaware counties.

Tucker said he oversaw the investigation carried out by the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force. Officers would pose as underage boys or girls online and communicated with the men in Internet chats.

Ohio Attorney General Dave Yost said the four-part simultaneous operation involved more than 30 law enforcement agencies. The probe also focused on nailing those who went beyond preying on children to have sex with them and also sought to sell vulnerable individuals into human trafficking.  

Of those arrested, 36 additional men were charged with trying to buy sex. One man was arrested for promoting prostitution. 43 women were arrested for selling sex. Those women were connected with social services aimed at rehabilitating human trafficking victims, WBNS-TV reported.

Antonio Brown accused of sending ‘intimidating’ text messages to second accuser: report

Westlake Legal Group 694940094001_6086801437001_6086789334001-vs Antonio Brown accused of sending ‘intimidating’ text messages to second accuser: report fox-news/us/crime/sex-crimes fox-news/sports/nfl/new-england-patriots fox-news/sports/nfl fox-news/person/antonio-brown fox news fnc/sports fnc e5124734-8197-5cf3-9e5b-f064f1a9bcc6 Dom Calicchio article

The NFL received a letter Thursday evening, in which a lawyer claims that embattled New England Patriots star Antonio Brown sent his client “intimidating” text messages after her allegations about Brown’s past behavior went public this week, a report says.

Sports Illustrated reports that the lawyer’s client is an artist who claims Brown made an unwanted sexual advance toward her in 2017, allegedly approaching her while he was naked, holding a small towel over his genitals, after she was hired to paint a mural of him inside his home.

The woman — whose claims follow those of a different woman, who alleges Brown raped her — says she was fired from the job because she rejected the advance, according to the magazine.

ANTONIO BROWN’S TIMELINE OF DRAMA: DETAILS OF THE STAR WIDE RECEIVER’S INCIDENTS

The latest claims extend a series of tumultuous recent events involving Brown, the 31-year-old wide receiver who this summer signed with the Patriots after disputes with the Oakland Raiders, for whom he never played after being traded from the Pittsburgh Steelers following a falling out with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Also Thursday, sports apparel maker Nike confirmed that it has ended its endorsement deal with Brown, who previously lost a deal with helmet manufacturer Xenith.

After Sports Illustrated reported the artist’s allegations, the woman said she received a text-message string Wednesday night that includes an accusation that she made up a “bull sh— story” in a bid to receive cash from Brown. But in the Thursday letter to the NFL, the lawyer writes that her client is not seeking any payment in connection with her allegations, SI reports.

The woman claims that the text string came from the same phone number that Brown provided to her in 2017, the report says.

According to SI, within the text string is a reference to the artist as a “super broke girl” and a request for someone called “Eric B” to “look up her background history.”

Then there is an Instagram photo of the woman with her children, accompanied by the message, “those her kids … she’s awful broke clearly.”

In her letter to the NFL, the artist’s lawyer, Lisa J. Banks, describes the texts as being “intimidating and threatening” to the unnamed client, and asserts that the communication violates the NFL Personal Conduct Policy, SI reports.

The magazine writes that the NFL responded to the lawyer within an hour and scheduled a phone call between investigators and the artist’s attorneys. Neither the Patriots nor Brown’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, would comment on the matter, according to SI.

SI says it sought comment from Brown by sending a text to the number linked to the text messages. The magazine said it received a response, “foh clown,” with “foh” being an acronym for the words, “get the f— out of here.”

Amid the turmoil of recent weeks, Brown debuted for the Patriots last Sunday, catching four passes for 56 yards and scoring one touchdown in the team’s 43-0 win over the Miami Dolphins. The Patriots are scheduled to play at home this weekend against the New York Jets.

Alleged ‘madame’ of Chicago sex ‘dungeon’ facing federal prostitution and financial charges: report

A 31-year-old woman pleaded not guilty Wednesday after federal prosecutors in Chicago charged her with operating a sex “dungeon” and multistate prostitution business that allegedly brought in millions of dollars from clients across the nation.

Jessica Nesbitt, whom authorities say used the name “Madame Priscilla Belle,” faces charges of prostitution in addition to financial crimes, according to a 23-page federal indictment, the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Her defense lawyer, Barry Sheppard argued before Judge Maria Valdez that Nesbitt operated a legal “fetish business,” not a prostitution operation, Chicago’s FOX 32 reported.

‘SILICON VALLEY’ STAR THOMAS MIDDLEDITCH: ‘SWINGING SAVED MY MARRIAGE’

Clients learned about the business from a website called Kink Extraordinaires, according to the report. It said the dungeon’s operators provided “beautiful, psychologically sophisticated Kinksters” who would “play out of a private 5 floor Dungeon with multiple fully equipped themed rooms.”

The dungeon also boasted “free and convenient street parking,” the Sun-Times report said.

The business also advertised on sites such as Backpage.com and Eros.com.

Prosecutors allege that Nesbitt deposited cash in amounts under $10,000 in a bid to avoid detection. Such actions are called “structuring” and are illegal, the Sun-Times reported.

Nesbitt is due back in court Oct. 15 and until then has been ordered not to contact current or former employees of the business or engage in “activities of a prurient nature.”

Pennsylvania state Sen. Michael Folmer arrested for child porn, officials say

Pennsylvania state Sen. Michael Folmer was arrested after allegedly uploading child pornography online, the state’s attorney general announced Tuesday.

Folmer, a 63-year-old Republican who represents Lebanon, Dauphin and York counties, was taken into custody after he allegedly uploaded the illegal photos to social networking website Tumblr.

The website reported the photo upload to authorities, which led to an investigation at Folmer’s home, a press release from Attorney General Josh Shapiro’s office said. While there, investigators allegedly found photos of child porn on his phone.

Folmer allegedly told investigators he was working through “some personal problems” and admitted to receiving the child porn through his Tumblr account, PennLive.com reported, citing charging documents.

“This defendant serves as a state Senator and was entrusted to honor and represent his community in the Pennsylvania Capitol,” Shapiro said in a statement. “I will continue to say it — no one is above the law, no matter what position of power they hold. I will continue to work to protect children and hold those who abuse them accountable.”

Democratic Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf on Wednesday called for Folmer’s resignation, calling the charges filed against him “disgusting and beyond comprehension.”

MISSISSIPPI STATE REP ALLEGEDLY PUNCHED WIFE AFTER SHE TOOK TOO LONG TO UNDRESS FOR SEX

“We elect leaders to serve as a voice for those who do not have the ability to advocate for their own needs, demanding that they will protect our children, families, and communities,” Wolf said in a statement. “[The charges] show he has taken advantage of the trust and privilege afforded by the people of Pennsylvania. He should immediately resign.”

The Pennsylvania Senate’s top leaders, Senate President pro tempore Joe Scarnati and Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman, said they were stripping Folmer of his chairmanship of the Senate State Government Committee.

“We are shocked to learn tonight of the allegations made against Sen. Folmer,” the senators said in a joint statement, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. “We will fully cooperate with law enforcement regarding this deeply disturbing matter.”

Folmer, who was elected to a fourth term in November, was charged with sexual abuse of children, possession of child pornography and criminal use of a communication facility.

Pittsburgh Pirates’ Felipe Vazquez met alleged victim at ballpark, visited her at home: report

All-Star pitcher Felipe Vazquez, who was arrested Tuesday and charged with multiple felony child sex charges, reportedly met the alleged victim at Pittsburgh’s PNC Park and took pictures with her outside the bullpen.

Vazquez, the closer for the Pittsburgh Pirates, was in custody following an investigation into an alleged inappropriate relationship with a 13-year-old girl, officials said. He was charged with statutory sexual assault, unlawful contact with a minor and corruption of minors and a misdemeanor count of indecent assault of a person under 16 years old.

The 28-year-old met with the alleged victim at the Pirates’ home ballpark after she contacted the pitcher on social media beginning their communication, according to a Lee County Sheriff’s Office, Fla., incident report obtained by CBS Pittsburgh.

Vazquez reportedly drove to the alleged victim’s home in Pennsylvania on at least one occasion. She accused the pitcher of pulling down her pants while they were in his vehicle and attempted to have sex with her, CBS Pittsburgh reported, citing the incident report.

The girl, now 15, allegedly received a text message from Vazquez in July in which he was performing a sexual act. He also texted the girl to ask if she wanted to meet for a sexual encounter at the end of the baseball season, police said.

Vazquez’s face was not visible in the sexual images sent to the alleged victim and authorities were able to identify him by matching tattoos in the picture against the tattoos of Vazquez they discovered on the internet, the Associated Press reported, citing an affidavit.

The alleged victim’s mother discovered the messages with Vazquez and told the pitcher he was talking with a minor, according to the affidavit. Authorities matched the evidence to Vazquez’s phone number.

The pitcher was taken into custody by Pennsylvania State Police and was charged stemming from an investigation in Florida. He was later charged in Westmoreland County, which is located east of Pittsburgh.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said it began investigating Vazquez in August after learning about an alleged sexual relationship between a girl and Vazquez. The girl was 13 at the time of the alleged relationship.

Vazquez was denied bond as the judge said she believed he was as a flight risk, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Vazquez has since been placed on paid administrative leave.

“We take this matter, and these charges in particular, extremely seriously,” Pirates president Frank Connelly said in a statement.

Pirates starting pitcher Chris Archer commented on Vazquez’s arrest Tuesday.

“It’s something that hits home,” he said. “I have a 14-year-old sister. In the U.S., you’re innocent until proven guilty. Until due process is completely played out, we’re hoping that this stuff’s not true.”

Convicted killer of California woman Jackie Cassettari set to go free after just 10 years in prison

Jackie Cassettari was brutally beaten and strangled to death, suffering several skull fractures, brain hemorrhaging, a broken larynx and numerous bruises and cuts.

When the 36-year-old Northern California woman’s body was found, there was a rope around her neck, a deep gash on her right wrist and evidence that she may have been sexually assaulted, authorities say.

Now, 14 years after the horrific 2005 crime, her killer is scheduled to be released from prison – and Jackie’s family is furious.

“We wanted him to be in there for life,” Jackie’s cousin, Steffanie Cruser, told FOX 40 of Sacramento. “We wanted him to suffer and then just never be able to see the light of day again.”

But Brian Rainwater, who was convicted in 2009 of killing Jackie, is scheduled to go free in November – after serving just 10 years of a 15-year sentence.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation told FOX 40 that Rainwater will be released early because of time served and because he took some college courses while behind bars. In addition, some charges beyond his manslaughter conviction have been reduced to misdemeanors, the station reported.

What’s worse, according to Jackie’s family: Rainwater will likely be living in Tracy, the same Northern California city that Jackie’s family members call home.

The family hopes authorities will force Rainwater to live somewhere else, Cruser said.

“Far away, far away,” she told FOX 40. “Because no one wants to run into him at a grocery store or a gas station.”

Retired detective Dale Jaynes said he’ll never forget the crime scene after Jackie’s death in her Livermore apartment.

“The amount of blood that was in that kitchen, you had to watch where you walked, not only because the evidence but just … slipping,” Jaynes told FOX 40. “It was one of the most gruesome scenes I’ve been in. You wonder who could … who could do something like this to another person.”

“The amount of blood that was in that kitchen, you had to watch where you walked, not only because the evidence but just … slipping. It was one of the most gruesome scenes I’ve been in. You wonder who could … who could do something like this to another person.”

Both Jaynes and Cruser said they were shocked when Rainwater received just a 15-year sentence.

“I was very upset to be honest with you,” Jaynes told FOX40. “With the injuries she received, it was unbelievable he was only going to get the sentence he got.”

During Rainwater’s trial, a pathologist testified that Cassettari had a possibly lethal amount of methamphetamine in her body, the East Bay Times reported.

But at least one person has remained convinced that Rainwater is innocent: his wife, Desiree Rainwater.

She claims her husband was convicted because his past – which included infidelity and a conviction for indecent exposure – fit a police narrative, according to the station.

“To bludgeon somebody to death?” she said. “No, that’s not my husband.”

Florida couple had sex inside patrol car after arrest for riding bicycles while drunk: reports

A couple arrested in Florida late Friday for riding their bicycles while intoxicated made matters worse for themselves when they started having sex in the back of the patrol car, authorities say.

A sheriff’s deputy spotted Aaron Seth Thomas, 31, and Megan Lynn Mondanaro, 35, narrowly avoid being hit by a car when they rode their bikes across a road in Fernandina Beach, according to the Nassau County Sheriff’s Office.

One of their bikes lacked lights while the other had only a headlight, plus the couple had been drinking at a nearby bar, the sheriff’s office told the Florida Times-Union of Jacksonville. In addition, Thomas had seven cans of beer in his backpack, the report said.

Gomez-Gonzalez picked up the friend in Montgomery County, Md. on Sept. 10 to go to dinner, according to charging documents obtained by Fox5DC.

After dinner, the pair purchased a bottle of Hennessey and drove to a park in Gaithersburg where Gomez-Gonzalez allegedly sexually assaulted the heavily-intoxicated woman in the back seat of his car. He allegedly tried pulling off her pants and made unwanted sexual advances.

He then allegedly took the woman to his home and sexually assaulted her again, authorities said. The woman told police she woke up the next morning in his home with “intense” vaginal pain and bleeding.

A New York music executive was charged with three counts of burglary and one count of sexual abuse after he allegedly snuck into a woman’s apartment and molested her before stealing several pairs of her panties.

Adam Lublin, 43, was arraigned Monday in Manhattan Criminal Court and released on $175,000 bond.

The 23-year-old accuser said she awoke to find a man standing over and molesting her last Tuesday in her apartment in a luxury tower in Lower Manhattan’s Battery Park City, according to reports by the New York Post.

She later was able to ID the suspect with the help of her doorman, who reviewed building surveillance footage and identified him as “Adam,” cops said.

When police responded to the scene and knocked on his apartment door, they did not receive an answer.

Investigators said they staked out the building Wednesday and saw Lublin leaving with a cup and flamingo straw. When police nabbed him, he threw the cup in the bushes, but investigators recovered it and it allegedly contained several pairs of panties that the accuser said belonged to her, along with the straw.

Prosecutors said “additional pairs of women’s underwear” also turned up in a search of Lublin’s apartment Sunday.

“One of the backbones in our legal system is the presumption of innocence,” Lublin’s lawyer, Scott Leemon, told local media. “Adam will rely on that presumption of innocence.”

Prosecutors were confident they had a “strong case,” revealing to Judge Anne Swern that Lublin also was linked to a similar incident involving the accuser’s roommate, who said she was attacked in a similar manner last week.

“About a week ago, the victim’s roommate woke up in the middle of the night and saw a man hovering over her,” Assistant District Attorney Elizabeth Clerkin said Monday in court.

“Then on Saturday night, the victim went to bed in her apartment, didn’t lock her apartment door and awoke around 5 a.m. to a white man with dark hair, heavyset, leaning over her bed and touching her vagina.”

Swern issued an order of protection for both women and ordered Lublin to avoid contact with them if he saw them in the building.

Lublin, who previously worked at a sports and live entertainment company, has been photographed with hip-hop artists at a slew of parties in New York City.

Group founded to address child sex abuse in Olympic sports struggling to manage its caseload

The Colorado-based organization founded to address the issue of sexual abuse in Olympic sports at the youth level is fielding 55 percent more reports of misconduct this year than in 2018, leading to an increasingly urgent debate over who should provide the lion’s share of money to an organization struggling to manage its caseload.

The U.S. Center for SafeSport received a $1.3 million infusion from the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee, bringing the USOPC’s overall contribution to $7.4 million in 2019. National governing bodies (NGBs) which oversee the individual Olympic sports have contributed $2.05 million for this year. That amount, plus a small government grant and other donations, brings the center’s operating budget for 2019 to $10.5 million.

Officials at the center worry that’s an untenable amount for an organization that is now receiving an average of 239 reports a month, compared with 154 during a typical month last year. Out of those, the SafeSport Center has 1,290 open cases, with 2,237 that have been closed. It has 18 investigators and lawyers (with four vacancies) on a staff of 37 (with six vacancies) to handle them. The center projects it will need to double its staff next year and triple it by 2023 to keep up with the work.

The stark numbers lend urgency to a fight over who should fund the center in the long term. The USOPC, which founded the center, is pushing the federal government to provide more than what it currently allocates — a $2.2 million grant spread over three years, none of which can be used for investigations.

“I think it’s an ‘And’ question, not an ‘Or’ question,” said USOPC CEO Sarah Hirshland, who has been lobbying lawmakers to provide government money to help. She and other leaders are pointing to the model that funds the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency; USADA received about $9.5 million of its $21 million in 2018 revenue from government, an additional $5.1 million from the USOPC and $6.7 million from “testing and other services,” according to its annual report.

The USOPC brought in around $323 million in revenue in 2018, up from $183 million in ’17; the federation’s numbers spike in Olympic years and go down during non-Olympic years. It uses the money to support athletes in a number of ways — including training, insurance, prize money for winners of major events and NGB funding. Last year, administrative costs rose to more than 11 percent of total spending ($31.2 million) because of payments to two law firms that did work involving the sex-abuse scandal and severance to former CEO Scott Blackmun.

After the center opened in March 2017 it received an initial average of 31 reports a month. That number exploded at the beginning of 2018 when victims of former USA Gymnastics team doctor Larry Nassar spoke up during his sentencing hearing for sex crimes. By last fall, the number spiked again.

It’s grown even more in 2019, with each sexual misconduct-related headline triggering more calls.

Meanwhile, an independent consultant hired by the center projects the number of calls will continue to increase until it caps at around 8,000 a year — an average of 667 a month.

Center officials said many of the reports could become less complicated as the knowledge from center’s education programs seeps into sports communities and issues are reported before they become overly complicated. Eight employees, about one-fifth of the center’s workforce, is devoted to education and outreach programs to serve up to 18 million members of national governing bodies across the country. So far, the center has trained about 800,000 of those people.

The independent consultant suggested to Colon that, given the workload, the center could use $35 million in 2020. But the center has more modest hopes — hoping to increase USOPC and NGB donations to bring next year’s budget to $16 million.
