Snapchat scum crossed country to ‘have sex’ with minor

Snapchat scum crossed country to 'have sex' with minor

Jonathan Christy

Before we get to the heart of the story, I have to go on another one of my rants about the term ‘having sex’ when it comes to minors who can not legally consent to sex. WMUR in New Hampshire used the headline ‘Police say California man met NH girl on Snapchat, arranged sexual encounter’, while Fox 25 in Boston used ‘Police: Man used Snapchat to have sexual relationship with 14-year-old’. This story is neither about an encounter nor a relationship, it’s about an alleged sexual predator who used deception in order to ‘have sex’ with a minor who could not legally consent to sex. When did we stop calling this rape, statutory or otherwise? But again, I digress.

27-year-old Jonathan Christy, of Placentia, California, is said to have met a 14-year-old New Hampshire girl on Snapchat. He reportedly bought the girl a cellphone before he flew across the country to meet her in New Hampshire. He then picked her up from her middle school where he allegedly ‘had sex’ with her in his hotel room, or in more proper terms, where he allegedly raped her. He then left town shortly thereafter.

You can’t tell me that someone who bought a girl a cell phone that her parents wouldn’t know about, who also picked her up from middle school, then reportedly snuck out-of-town, was interested in a relationship? Hardly. In my opinion this guy is an alleged rapist and should be treated as such. We also need to stop tip-toeing around the term just because some people find it ‘unpleasant’.

Lastly to parents, you need to talk to your kids and let them know that any adult that is contacting them online that purports to understand them better, or says that they should be treated more like adults. is only after one thing, and it’s not a relationship.

Florida realtor charged with rape of girl he met on Omegle

Florida realtor charged with rape of girl he met on Omegle

Benjamin Sovacool

35-year-old Benjamin Sovacool, a realtor from Naples, Florida, was recently arrested for allegedly having sex (child rape) with a 16-year-old girl that he met through the cam chatting site Omegle. Sovacool was allegedly fooling around with the victim at her house when a Sheriff’s deputy pulled up after a report of a strange car at the girl’s house. Police say that Sovacool took off out the back. Details on his actual arrest are sparse but one story says he tried telling police that he was in the area because of his real estate work.

As I have mentioned before, the search phrase ‘can I get arrested for using Omegle’ is one of the most common search phrases used to reach my website, more so than any search query involving Kik and Snapchat. However, I post more stories related to Kik and Snapchat than I do Omegle, which leads me to believe that Omegle is not being investigated by law enforcement as much as it should be.

Also as I’ve mentioned before for parents, Omegle is not an app, it’s a website that can be used by any device with a camera, that includes cell phones and tablets. Since it’s a website and not an app it may be more difficult to see if your kids are using it. In that case you should not only be checking what apps your kids have on their phones or tablets but also their browser history as well.

Be smarter than your kids and be smarter than the predators that seek to harm them. Your child’s welfare may depend on it.

WI suspect was 15-year-old’s Snapchat pimp

Jacob Medina

Jacob Medina

It’s no secret to those in the know that Snapchat is popular among the adult entertainment crowd. For the right price you can have access to the private Snapchat accounts of any number of cam girls, adult actresses and nude models. So it should come as no surprise when the more unscrupulous among us to exploit the most vulnerable among us.

Take 31-year-old Jacob Medina of Cottage Grove, Wisconsin, for example. He’s accused of not only allegedly running the Snapchat account of a 15-year-old girl who was posting explicit pictures of herself but, he’s also accused of ‘having sex’ with her. By now you should know that when I put the sarcasm quotes around having sex you know I actually mean child rape. Since the victim was too young to open her own PayPal account Medina is said to have opened it for her in order to collect payments. No word on how much of a cut Medina kept for himself.

The victim was said to have used an iPhone that had no calling plan attached to it but could still access the internet through wi-fi. It’s not specified in this article but in a lot of cases online predators and pimps will provide their victims with devices in order to stay in contact with them while circumventing parents. Most, if not all, of these devices only require a wi-fi signal in order to access the internet and can be used at any public wi-fi access point such as coffee shops and the like.

The point being that predators and pimps have an enormous bag of tricks at their disposal in order to try to exploit your kids. Even knowing just a few of them goes a long way in helping to protect your children.

Kik kreeper took girl from Missouri home to New Mexico

Raymond C. Vallia

Raymond C. Vallia

56-year-old Raymond C. Vallia of Albuquerque, New Mexico was recently sentenced to 20 years behind bars for kidnapping a 13-year-old Missouri girl that he met online. The pair used mobile messaging Kik in order to communicate and orchestrate her kidnapping. Vallia drove from Amaraillo, Texas, for some reason, to Montrose, Missouri and had planned on taking her back to his home in New Mexico. He was found with the girl by a New Mexico State Trooper after an Amber Alert was issued. According to Google Maps if he had made it all the way to Albuquerque round trip from Amarillo would have been a roughly 1500 mile trip. This is how persistent child predators are when it comes to claiming a victim. More reason why they should be kept behind bars for longer than they’ve been getting. Apparently Vallia couldn’t wait to get his child prize home as they ‘had sex’ (child rape) in Texas.

Never forget that Kik is awash in sex offenders and pedophiles. Treat it as such when it comes to your own kids.

Md. Kik and craigslist creeper used modeling scam to lure teen victim

Roy David Evans Jr.

Roy David Evans Jr.

I wasn’t planning on having a theme day today yet here we are.

31-year-old Roy David Evans Jr. is accused of allegedly having a ‘sexual relationship’ (child rape) with a 14-year-old girl that he met through craigslist. Evans is said to have placed an ad on craigslist looking for young models in the Baltimore area and for the models to message him through his Kik account at “Roddanger86”. Police believe he may have more victims…

Anyone who believes that they may have encountered Evans is asked to contact Montgomery County Police at 240-773-5400 or their local police department.

In my previous post I listed some ways o how you can tell if your child is being scammed. Another good way to tell is that I would imagine that most ‘legitimate’ modeling agencies don’t use Kik as their primary method of communication and if they did I doubt they would have a sleazy handle like “Rod Danger”. Not to mention that even legit modeling has its share of scumbags and pitfalls.

Florida teacher who sent explicit Snapchats to students arrested

Dionne Younce

Dionne Younce

I originally posted about Dionne Younce here. She’s the 28-year-old phys ed teacher from St. John’s County, Florida, who got suspended then fired for allegedly sending explicit Snapchats to some of the male students from her school. More recently Ms. Younce was arrested for allegedly having sex, still child rape in my opinion, with a 17-year-old male student. Age of consent in Florida is 18 and the 11-year-age gap is not covered by the poorly named Romeo and Juliet clause. It also sounds like St. John’s County is treating her like an actual criminal since she’s currently being held on $200K bond as they should.

This shouldn’t be treated any different if a male teacher had sex with a female student, As a society we need to move away from that bro mentality of “Heh heh heh, where were teachers like her when I was in school?” At least one local parent gets it…

“This day in social media, it’s kind of easy to do. But still, doing that with students?” Lodise said. “Obviously, it’s taking advantage of somebody who’s not mature enough to make those decisions; wise decisions.”

While some may not think that an act like this is victimization it could very well mess up kids like this emotionally and mentally when it comes to future relationships with women.

UPDATE 4/9/2016: Younce has entered a plea of not guilty.

UPDATE 9/9/2016: After pleading no contest, Younce was sentenced to a year behind bars and five years probation and will be on the sex offender registry as she should be.

OKC cops canvasing for Kik kreeper

Michael Beam

Michael Beam

Police in Oklahoma City are currently searching for 32-year-old Michael Christopher Beam. Beam is accused of allegedly ‘having sex’ with a 13-year-old girl he met through mobile messaging app Kik. Police allege that Beam picked up the girl from her home after the girl’s mother left for work and would then drop her off at school after having sex at a car wash.

If you have any information regarding Beam’s whereabouts, please contact Crime Stoppers at (405) 235-7300.

Again, if you don’t educate yourself on how your kids are using Kik they could very well fall prey to the many sex offenders and pedophiles on Kik.

Alabama Kik kreeper tried to check girl out of school

Carlton Carvel Bates

Carlton Carvel Bates

First I want to give props to AL.com for using the word rape in their headline regarding the following incident. Underage children can not legally consent to sex so it is a form of rape.

Anyway, 35-year-old Carlton Carvel Bates or Birmingham, Alabama, is accused of allegedly ‘having sex (i.e. child rape) with a 14-year-old girl that he met, where else, on the mobile messaging app Kik. Prior to his arrest Bates had already ‘had sex’ with the Blount County girl on at least one occasion. On this trip however Bates went to the girl’s high school in an attempt to check her put of class. Luckily the school staff didn’t fall for it.

Think about that for just a moment. This man allegedly went to the girl’s school an hour away from his home, walked into the school and spoke with school staff possibly posing as a relative in an attempt to check her out of class for the sole purpose of ‘having sex’ with a 14-year-old girl. That’s a new parents’ nightmare for you.

Luckily it was his hubris that caused his downfall. The school contacted police who posed as the girl on Kik and maybe no so ironically arrested him outside of an establishment called Mugshots.

Not to belabor the point but if you’re not keeping an eye on your kids’ online activities the many sex offenders and pedophiles using the Kik app will.
