Robert Dion Ables

39-year-old Robert Dion Ables of Hutchins, Texas, is accused of allegedly extorting a 14-year-old Canadian girl for explicit images of herself. Ables is believed to have used the mobile messaging app Kik in order to attempt to blackmail his victim.

Investigators say that Ables posed as a 14-year-old girl when asking the girl for explicit photos. When he received them, he is said to have sent similar pictures of a different girl to the victim. He then threatened the victim that he would post her pictures on Facebook if she did not continue to send him pictures.

Ables allegedly admitted to the crime and said that he had been involved in online extortion since 2014 which he says has made him $50,000 in two years.

Ables said he obtained sexually explicit photographs of minors by contacting girls on KIK Messenger.

Another good warning for your kids is that if a stranger online claims to be or around their age, they still could be a predator. Posing as a child is just one of many ways that online predators use to gain your child’s trust. This is not a rare occurrence on Kik either. As I have mentioned many times in the past, Kik is inundated with sex offenders and pedophiles.

Ohio Kik Kreeper claims he’s been ‘playing’ with his child

Ohio Kik Kreeper claims he's been 'playing' with his child

30-year-old James Denney of Anderson Township, Ohio, has been arrested for allegedly trying to trade child porn on the mobile messaging app Kik. Denney was chatting on Kik with an undercover Homeland Security agent when he allegedly said the following…

In the Kik chat transcribed in the court documents, Denney said he’d been “playing” with his child for “a couple months” and that he was still “testing the waters.” He went on to say he didn’t want to “cause lasting issues or any major issues.”

Well, isn’t that benevolent of him?

Denny is also said to have sent a tor link to the DHS agent that was said to contain child porn.

No word on if Denney had any actual children or if he was just talking up a good game. I guess we’ll just have to wait to see if child molestation charges are forthcoming.

This is the part where I tell you that Kik is filled with sex offenders, pedophiles, and child porn traders. If I were you, I wouldn’t even let any of your under age kids use Kik no matter how many of their friends may use it.

James Darnell Smith

This is basically just a copy and paste of most of the Kik stories I post, but man, sometimes you just can’t pass up a mugshot like that.

Anyway, Tor Johnson’s younger brother up there is 35-year-old James Darnell Smith of Silverhill, Alabama. Smith is accused of allegedly using the mobile messaging app Kik to trade in child porn and to try to meet juveniles.

Investigators say they witnessed Smith trading child porn on Kik and trying to pick up kids, which gave them probable cause to search his home. There, they reportedly found a cache of child porn which included images of children as young as five.

By now it should come as no secret that kik is crawling with sex offenders and pedophiles, but it has also become the app of choice for those who trade in the most vile iconography in existence. If you allow your children to use this app unattended this is who you’re leaving them unattended with.

NC Youth Minister caught grooming child from Omegle

NC Youth Minister caught grooming child from Omegle
Tyler Simkus Smither

30-year-old Tyler Simkus Smither stands accused of allegedly using the cam chat site Omegle in order to obtain explicit pictures of an 11-year-old boy that he met through the website. Smither is said to be a youth minister at a church in New Hanover County, while the victim lives in Florida. After the two met on Omegle they eventually took their conversations to other platforms like Skype and text messaging. The victim’s mother was contacted by her cell phone carrier as they told her that her son was receiving texts from a new number. This led her to find explicit photos of both her son and Smither on her son’s cell phone.

I commend the victim’s mother for having the option on her son’s cell phone to be notified of strangers contacting her son. However, Omegle is a very old school site that can escape the notice of parents. It’s not an app so parents can’t look for that on a phone. It’s just a website that connects two strangers that happen to be on a camera enabled device. All you need to connect on Omegle is a device with a camera and an internet connection. It could either be a data connection on a cellphone or through an internet or wifi connection. While Omegle does make the occasional report of improper behavior with kids to the NCMEC they don’t do a whole lot to discourage this behavior outside of posting a warning that predators use their site. If websites had parents they would be so proud of them. I think it goes without saying that Omegle is no website for an 11-year-old boy.

Self-proclaimed pedophile says crimes were ‘civil disobedience’

Self-proclaimed pedophile says crimes were 'civil disobedience'
Gary Wolchesky

Seven years ago, I originally posted about then 21-year-old Gary Wolchesky here. In 2009, he was arrested for using Xbox Live to convince children to record themselves performing sexual acts for Wolchesky’s own pleasure. He then went on YouTube to brag about his exploits. I never thought I would be posting about him again, but yesterday, I received a slew of traffic from people looking for information about Wolchesky.

Yesterday, the suspect from Middletown, New Jersey, was found guilty on several charges of child sex abuse. However, his defense was as brazen as his YouTube videos were.

During his trial Wolchesky, a self-proclaimed pedophile, said he never asked the boys to penetrate themselves and that the boys all consented to the other acts. He also framed his conduct as acts of civil disobedience meant to “advance the cause of pedophilia,” authorities said.

Every once in a while a story comes out about a ‘pedophile activist’. You can read about another one here. They try to compare themselves to the LGBT community and the struggle they’ve undergone for equal rights. The comparison quickly falls flat when you realize that the LGBT community isn’t try to advance the ’cause’ of raping children.

Wolchesky will be looking at a sentence of 60 years when he is sentenced in March.

Orlando woman accused of making child porn and sharing it on Kik

Orlando woman accused of making child porn and sharing it on Kik

37-year-old Lauren Diaz of Orlando, Florida, has been arrested for allegedly producing child porn in her own residence. None of the articles I’ve read state who her victims were, but they do state that her two children are now in custody of the DCF.

Using the username of hmmready79 on mobile messaging app Kik, Diaz allegedly shared 109 child porn files with a Canadian man. The man had been arrested by Canadian authorities for allegedly being in possession of child porn. Police say that during her arrest Diaz reportedly admitted to sending the explicit images to the Canadian man among others.

When your app has become the go to choice for sex offenders, pedophiles, and child porn producers you would think that it would be bad PR for the app maker, yet here we are. The Canadian made app is still widely popular and there are few to little signs that Kik is doing anything to stop the infestation of pedophiles on its platform.

It’s way past time that we should start deleting Kik from the phones and tablets of our children.

Randy James Myers

32-year-old Randy James Myers, of Honeybrook, Pennsylvania, was arrested after traveling from Bismarck, North Dakota to Conway, Arkansas, in order to allegedly meet an 11-year-old and 14-year-old for sex. According to Google Maps, that’s a 17 hour drive of over 1100 miles. Myers is said to have used the mobile messaging app Kik in a chat room entitled “Incest Family Fun” to make these arrangements.

kiklogo

Thankfully the person he was actually talking to was a Faulkner County Sheriffs Office investigator. At the time of his arrest police say that Myers was in possession of the following

…multiple sex toys, including a ball gag, rope, sex wrap, restraints, diapers, leash, dog collar, lotions and lubes.

Remember, he allegedly intended to use those on children ages 11-14.

It’s no secret that Kik is full of sex offenders and pedophiles and I’ve been letting Kik off lightly until now. If they are hosting chat rooms called “Incest Family Fun” then they need to start tending to their own yard, so to speak. They definitely need more monitoring in shutting these rooms down.

UPDATE 12/1/2016: Authorities are now saying that Myers could be facing an additional one hundred (100) charges of child porn possession.

Michigan man who likes to dress like a baby charged with Tumblr child porn

Michigan man who likes to dress like a baby charged with Tumblr child porn
Richard Russel Farley,

55-year-old Richard Russel Farley, of Traverse City, Michigan, is accused of allegedly being in possession of over 1400 child porn images. Investigators were tipped off to the alleged actions of Farley by microblogging site Tumblr after they had intercepted some of the images and reported it to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Police say that the pictures had GPS information on them which they say led them to Farley.

For some reason, Farley felt the need to tell police that he “likes to dress up in a butterfly patterned ‘onesie’ and wear adult sized diapers.” Try to keep that image out of your head when you go to sleep tonight.

The other disturbing things about this crime are that not only is Tumblr used mostly by underage kids but as the 9 & 10 News article mentions, each time one of these images are viewed or shared it’s like committing another crime against the victims.

I almost forgot to mention that Farley is currently out on bond. Sleep well Michigan.

Joseph Coder

34-year-old Joseph Coder, of Fort Wayne Indiana, has been charged with several crimes involving Snapchat, Kik, and a 12-year-old girl from New Hampshire. Police say that the victim was introduced to Coder in a group chat by one of the victim’s friends. Coder is then said to have given his cell phone number to the victims. Over the various messaging and photo sharing apps they exchanged explicit images of each other. They both claimed to be 16 online but eventually she told Coder she was 12, And Coder allegedly told the girl that he was 23. Then Coder allegedly coerced the girl to send him naked pictures of her 10-year-old sister. When Coder was said to ask for pictures of the girl’s friends, she broke the ‘relationship’ off with Coder. In an interview with police, Coder is said to have admitted that he knew the girl was 12.

According to the terms of service for apps like Kik and Snapchat, a user needs to be at least 13 years of age in order to use their services, however there is no way they can verify a users’ age. In my opinion, due to the amount of predators that inhabit both services, I would recommend not letting any child on them until they were 18. For the parents of pre-teens with cell phones, tablets, and laptops, you may want to think about securing their devices at night. You may trust your child implicitly, but can you trust the stranger on the other end of the conversation?

Brendan Andrew Baia

Former Central Michigan University Student Brendan Andrew Baia, 19, was recently arrested for allegedly exchanging explicit Snapchats with a 12-year-old girl. Baia has left the school after the criminal charges were levied against him. Even at the young age of 19, Baia seems to hit all the stereotypical online predator tropes.

He is said to have referred to this victim as ‘little girl’ and made the girl address him as ‘daddy’. When confronted by the girl’s mother, he said that he thought the victim was ‘turning 16 soon’. When the girl’s mother accused him of preying on other girls he had quite the unusual response…

“Now I’m petrified to think about the things I thought were pleasurable before and that’s how it should be.”

snapchat-logo

Lastly, he told police that his explicit exchanges with the girl were “only fantasy”. If he had said they were only going to ‘hang out’ we would have had online predator Bingo.

Even if the victim was about to turn 16, that would mean that not only would she be under the age of consent in Michigan, but the explicit images he received from her would still be child porn.

I have to commend the girl’s mother. After the girl started appearing depressed, she had the presence of mind to check the girl’s phone where she found evidence of the Snapchat exchanges between her daughter and Baia. However, parents need to be reminded that no matter how cute the Snapchat filters are, it’s not really a place for unsupervised children due to the messaging feature and the perceived notion that the messages and pictures disappear.
