Sex offender spits blood at victim during sentencing

Sex offender spits blood at victim during sentencing

Clifford W. Wares

I’ve inadvertently posted about Clifford W. Wares of Warwick, New York, before. The first was in 2009 when he was arrested for allegedly sending obscene material to an underage girl on MySpace. The second time was in 2013 when he was arrested in a ‘primitive encampment’ in New York where he was allegedly using Facebook to extort underage girls into having sex with him. As I have mentioned in the past, in this and many other instances the term ‘having sex’ should actually be called child rape, but I digress. When I posted the second story I was unaware that I had posted about Wares before.

Ware was recently in the news again when he was sentenced in federal court to life behind bars for, as NJ.com puts it, six counts including interstate travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct, production of child pornography, online enticement of a minor to engage in criminal sexual activity and making interstate extortionate threats.

While the fact that a scumbag like Ware was sentenced to life should be newsworthy, that’s not exactly why he grabbed headlines. After one of his victims gave her impact statement Ware actually spat blood at her. This was a girl who was 13 when Ware threatened her when she refused to engage in bestiality for him. It didn’t end there either…

When court resumed, Wares observed the proceedings via closed-circuit camera in a holding cell, wearing a clear mask. Even under those circumstances, Wares was defiant, promising vengeance.

“It’s not hard to get out, and when I do, oh, there’s going to be problems,” he said.

Wares also pointed a middle finger at the camera after he completed his statement.

I feel so bad for his victim having to deal with this psychopath again like that but I admire her courage for being able to stand up to that monster so he could be put away forever.

Unfortunately, I doubt that this will be the last we hear from Wares. I don’t think he’ll ever see daylight again but I can imagine the appeals process that he’ll use to his advantage to further threaten and terrify.

Atlanta stepfather confronts Kik kreeper at truck stop shower

Atlanta stepfather confronts Kik kreeper at truck stop shower

Brian Grabia

An Atlanta, Georgia, stepfather is said to have noticed strange messages and pictures being sent to the phone of his 12-year-old stepson through Kik. The man then posed as his stepson and sent a reply to the alleged sender. The stepdad said “I’m 12. Do you have a problem with that?” The perpetrator messaged back “Well I thought you were 18, but that’s no problem” according to the stepfather. He then arranged to meet the man at truck stop shower stall where he collared 35-year-old Brian Grabia.

“He reached in to start taking his clothes off, reaching towards his stomach. At that point I jumped out of the shower and it all went down from there,” the stepfather said.

No word if ‘it all went down from there’ included a righteous ass whuppin’. Police did arrest Grabia and found him to be in possession of two cellphones which can be an indicator of a creeper.

While any father or stepfather worth their salt will always say they’ll beat the man whoever approaches their kids like that, in reality it’s best to leave things like this to police. While a beating may be deserved, not only can it jeopardize an investigation, it can lead to charges as well.

Female Florida Kik Kreeper solicited 11-year-old boy for sex

Female Florida Kik Kreeper solicited 11-year-old boy for sex

Stephannie Figueroa

20-year-old Stephannie Figueroa worked at a martial arts studio in Orlando. Florida. It’s there where she is said to have met an 11-year-old male student whom she is accused of soliciting sex from over the mobile messaging app Kik. Not only did Figueroa allegedly touch the boy on the thigh at the karate school but also sent naked pics of herself to the boy on Kik, fifteen in the last three months. She is also accused of inviting the boy over to her 21st birthday party so they could have sex.

kiklogo

This isn’t the youngest Kik victim, or Kiktim if you will, that’s been on the site, but he is the youngest that’s been solicited by a woman. Maybe I was a late bloomer, but when I was a 11 I was more concerned about Atari games than girls, and when I was old enough to date girls who were 20 most of them wanted to date guys who were over 21. What could a grown woman have possibly seen in an 11-year-old boy? Even if he was 6′ tall and 180 lbs. HE’S STILL 11-YEARS-OLD. He should be playing Minecraft and not worrying if his karate instructor is going to touch him in the no-no place. Let’s not forget that even though this kid was only 11 there’s still going to be idiots who say “I wish I had karate instructors like that when I was a kid”. If that’s you then you’re part of the problem. With that kind of attitude you’re encouraging the over-sexualization of children whether you realize it or not. Just because the alleged perpetrator in this case is female shouldn’t make any kind of difference not in the eyes of the law nor the eyes of society.

As I am wont to say, Kik is overrun with sex offenders and pedophiles, some of whom are women, and no 11-year-old needs to be on Kik because of them.

UPDATE 6/26/2016: Figueroa has pleaded not guilty and has been released on bond.

Christopher Dunkes

27-year-old Christopher Dunkes is a police officer in Montgomery County, Maryland. He’s been suspended without pay because he was recently arrested in an online sting conducted by the Prince William County Police in Virginia. Officer Dunkes is accused of allegedly soliciting sex from an underage girl on craigslist who was actually Prince William investigators. Dunkes reportedly asked the 15-year-old ‘girl’ twice for a specific sex act and was arrested at a local Target.

Two things should be noted about this story. The first is that it’s hard for a community to trust police when one of them is allegedly trolling craigslist for girls. The other is that the job of craigslist’s community police is being done by the actual police instead.

Robert Alfred Lall

Former kids’ camp counselor Robert Alfred Lall, 26, of St. Peters, Missouri, was arrested lat last week for allegedly soliciting sex from a 13-year-old girl from Canada on the mobile messaging app Kik. Lall reportedly sent pictures of his junk to the girl and when the girl repeatedly told Lall her age he is said to have responded with “I just like younger girls I guess Lol I can’t explain it.” Most people would explain it by calling you a pedophile, but I digress. He also allegedly sent the girl a picture of another underage girl who he claims to have had sex with and told the girl that he had sent explicit pictures to an 11-year-old boy.

kiklogo

As you may have surmised the Lol was on him as the 12-year-old girl was an undercover investigator with Canadian authorities who contacted Homeland Security here in the U.S.

While one more creeper has been removed from the internet that doesn’t mean that Kik is safe for underage kids by any stretch of the imagination. Not since the heyday of MySpace have I seen a social network/app that was so awash in sex offenders and pedophiles.

Kenneth Rex Church

42-year-old Kenneth Rex Church, of York, Pennsylvania, is being held on $500K bond for allegedly soliciting sex from minors who he met through craigslist. The first giveaway that Church may be a creeper was the ad he allegedly placed in the ‘casual encounters’ section of craigslist.

“I’m a middle aged man who has just gotten to the point where all I can think about are younger girls for sex.”

Later in the ad, he is accused of writing, “Young age is all that matters.”

Not a lot of wiggle room in that ad, so to speak.

Next came the texts to the 14-year-old girl who responded to his ad…

“I’m nervous cuz in not old enough. Cant I get into trouble??????”

Church, according to the complaint, responded, “Not as much as I can.”

“Since I’m an adult I should know better. If I were found out then I would be most likely arrested and charged with breaking a lot of laws.

To everyone else, you’d be the victim of an adult preying on you and seducing you (that would be me).”

SPOILER ALERT, the girl was an undercover investigator who probably had the easiest arrest of their career since Church seems to know exactly what kind of trouble he could have gotten himself into.

Again, there’s your typical denizen of the casual encounters section posting an ad that did not get flagged by craigslist’s community police, yet poor poor craigslist says they can’t spare a dime for moderators. Oh that $6M second house that Craig Newmark bought in New York? He must have got the money from returning soda cans or something. Move along, nothing to see here.

Ignacio Guadalupe Requenes-Ibarra

27-year-old Ignacio Guadalupe Requenes-Ibarra was recently arrested in San Antonio, Texas, for allegedly soliciting a 13-year-old girl for sex and explicit pictures over the mobile messaging app Kik. The victim has claimed that Requenes-Ibarra, knowing her actual age, once picked her up from middle school before assaulting her. The victim’s mother is said to have posed as the victim on Kik and arranged a fictitious meeting at a hotel, she is then said to have informed police of the meeting. Police stopped Requenes-Ibarra but did not detain him at that time since they did not yet have enough cause to arrest him. He reportedly continued messaging the mother posing as the victim after he had been stopped by police.

While everything turned out relatively all right in this situation, if you were to find yourself in the mother’s dilemma I would recommend contacting police first and if any theatrics needs to be done with the victim’s account let them handle it. As I continue to say, Kik is brimming with sex offenders and pedophiles who have been plying their indecent craft longer than you’ve been trying to trick them. If you’re not as clever as they are it could lead to dire consequences for not only the victim but for you as well. Please let the trained professionals handle their apprehension for not only your safety but also for the sake of the investigation.

Craigslist creeper caught on bike near Canadian border

Craigslist creeper caught at Canadian border

39-year-old Christopher Johnston of Ferndale, Washington, was recently arrested for allegedly soliciting sex from a 12-year-old girl he met through craigslist. Johnston is said to have placed an ad on craigslist that said he was looking for a “young lady to spoil.” Johnston was caught near the Canadian border on his bicycle. He was reportedly on his way to meet the girl in Abbotsford, British Columbia. According to Google maps that’s a 30 mile jaunt on a bike. Why is it that a lot of these guys never seem to have cars? As you can probably tell the 12-year-old girl was actually an undercover investigator.

Once again the police are doing the job that craigslist should be doing but since they refuse to monitor their own site incidents like this will continue. Not to mention again that the so-called community police of craigslist are largely useless.

Another Florida teacher arrested for naked Snapchats (not a repeat)

Daniel Morgan

In what is now becoming a running gag here on TTRR another Florida teacher has been arrested for allegedly sending naked Snapchats to a student. This time it’s 29-year-old Daniel Morgan of Jupiter, Florida. Morgan was a teacher at a Port St. Lucie County high school before resigning from his position briefly before his arrest. He is said to have allegedly sent a naked Snapchat to a 17-year-old female student of the school. He is said to have blamed taking the pictures on him being drunk at the time and that he doesn’t remember sending it. His lawyer says that this is a more complicated case than what’s supposedly on the surface. Right, good luck with that.

snapchat-logo

Anyway I have to ask what is the obsession with teachers and Snapchatting their students? The only thing I can think of is that like a lot of adults they’re not actually aware that not only are the deleted pictures from Snapchat recoverable but users can take a screengrab of the picture they receive. I call that the ‘Blinking VCR’ effect. Kids, ask your parents what a VCR is. Parents, ask your kids how Snapchat works.
