Online sex predator paroled:
The last time I posted about Joshua Innes was almost a year ago when he was sentenced to nine years behind bars.
To refresh your memory Innes, from Montreal, used the social site Nexopia to threaten and blackmail underage girls into stripping in cam for him by posing as a 16-year-old girl named Nicky.
When he was sentenced I bemoaned the fact that 9 years wasn’t enough for a predatiry scumbag like Innes. As it turns out the Canadian system thought not even a year was too much.
Innes has been paroled by the National Parole Board even though his own case managers were against it.
In a decision released Friday, the board said Innes made progress in his treatment program and demonstrates “insight and understanding” about what led to his crimes.
“While you were offending you were leading a double life and found your Internet involvement both intoxicating and addictive,” the board wrote. “While you have yet to deal with the addictive aspect of your criminal behaviour, your double life has been exposed.”
Innes will be a registered sex offender and can not be on the internet while on parole.
You know, we had a case recently here in the states where a sexual predator allegedly completed a state program and was deemed fit to return to society. His name was Michael Jacques and he allegedly kidnapped his own niece and possibly had a hand in her death.
Now you have your own Michael Jacques Canada. Congratulations.
Rapists will do years in prison:
Back in March I posted about Ali Saadatmandi and Ali Tayyebi, two accused date rapists from British Columbia who used Nexopia to find their victim.
At the time of that post I hoped that they would be put away for a long time. No such luck.
Saadatmandi got only four years while Tayyebi only got three.
I’d like to hear from my Canadian readers. Is this the kind of sentence you think these sexual predators should have received?
Two guilty of sex assault on high-schooler involving date-rape drug:
Ali Saadatmandi and Ali Tayyebi of Coquitlam, British Columbia, were convicted for date raping an 18-year-old girl from Chilliwack that they met over the Canadian social site Nexopia.
The victim went willingly with them to party but she was given GHB by one of the men then sexually assaulted her. The article goes into great detail that I won’t repost here because it almost made me physically ill.
Hopefully they’ll be put away for a long time.
And girls, let this be yet another listen to you about leaving with strangers that you meet online.
Man admits to possessing child pornography, pursuing teens online:
26-year-old Ian Stuart Johnson of Calgary, Alberta, Canada pleaded guilty to child porn charges. It seems that Johnson would lure underage girls over the Canadian social site Nexopia offering them money and alcohol.
Everytime a Nexopia user would complain about Johnson they would shut down his account only to have him open a new one.
The prosecutor said all of the communications Johnson had was with females who reside in Calgary and were between 14 and 18 years old.
The correspondence, which occurred under the user names satellite_eye, Secureca, Coca-cola55 and dmwarehouse – all Johnson’s – occurred between August 2002 and February 2005 and elicited several complaints from other Nexopia users, prompting site owner Timo Ewalds to terminate the man’s accounts one by one.
While I’m glad that this scumbag is being put away I wonder why it is that you don’t hear about the Canadian government putting pressure on these sites. Maybe they actually think it’s a parent’s job to protect their children.
What a novel concept.
Man pleads guilty to distributing child porn:
21-year-old Brian Johnathan Schultz of Edmonton, Alberta pleaded guilty to charges of distributing child porn. It seems that Schultz was dating a girl who was 16 and photographed their sexual exploits. The girl tried to end the relationship but Schultz couldn’t accept that. Schultz had started posting nude pictures of the girl on his Nexopia profile and was offering more for anyone who requested. When the girl contacted Nexopia the photos were pulled. Schultz then presented the girl with a diamond ring but the girl still refused. Then Schultz had set up a complete website offering photos of the girl.
Canadian law states…
The age of consent is 18 years where the sexual activity involves exploitative activity, such as prostitution, pornography or where there is a relationship of trust, authority or dependency. For other sexual activity, the age of consent is 14 years.
So the sex was legal but the photos were not.
Schultz is set to be sentenced early next year.
First off I’ll probably have my man card revoked for this but ladies, don’t let your SOs take nude photos of you. Eventually they’ll find their way to the internet. Now to the guys, we’ve all been there. We’ve all had the girlfriend that we wanted back no matter the cost after we got dumped. However have some dignity and let her go. You’ll both be better off that way.
Thanks to LiLO for the tip.
I originally posted about Joshua Innes here. He’s the 25-year-old creep from Montreal who blackmailed underage girls into stripping for him using the Canadian social site Nexopia.
He was sentenced to 9 years behind bars by an Edmonton judge.
Provincial court Judge James Wheatley said Joshua Innes’ crimes are “unprecedented” and that other predators must be deterred from following suit.
I don’t think a nine-year sentence is going to be enough to discourage these kinds of predators.
Man guilty of luring teens over Internet:
25-year-old Joshua Innes of Montreal pleaded guilty to charges of luring a child under 18 on the Internet, extortion, and distributing child pornography.
Court heard in an agreed statement of facts that Innes posed as a 16-year-old girl named Nicky from Calgary on the popular social networking site Nexopia.
Innes began exchanging messages with the Edmonton girl, complimenting her and eventually turned the topic toward sex.
He sent her a video that showed a teenage girl performing a sex act which the victim believed was Nicky.
After persistent coaxing, the girl took off her clothes and performed sexual acts in front of her web camera, which Innes recorded in Montreal on his computer.
About a week later, “Nicky” asked the girl what was the worst thing she’s ever done. She said she once talked about a friend behind her back and asked Nicky the same question. He replied, “I pretended to be a 16-year-old girl on the Internet.”
Innes then demanded she perform more sex acts for the webcam or he would upload the video on the web and send it to people listed as friends on her Nexopia profile.
The victim told a friend who alerted her parents, who called police.
When an Edmonton police officer, Det. Randy Wickens, posed online as the victim, Innes aggressively demanded the girl perform again or he would send out the video.
Innes was arrested in his home where he lived with his parents.
Sentencing will take place in August.
Former Mountie cops plea One day in jail for trying to lure underage girls using Internet:
A while ago I posted about former Canadian Mountie Adam Jonathan Clarke. He was arrested for trying to lure teen girls for sex over Nexopia. Last week he plead guilty to two counts of communicating to lure a child under age 18. What sentence did he receive? A day in jail.
I guess the Mounties always get their man but the courts set them free.
Trial date set for cop:
A two-day trial has been set for the former Langley RCMP officer accused in attempting to lure children through the popular teen website, Nexopia.
Adam Johnathon Clarke will stand trial on two counts of child luring on June 21 and 22, 2007.
The 23-year-old former officer, who now lives in Newfoundland, was charged on May 19, 2006 after a three-month investigation.
Clarke had allegedly been using one of the Langley Community Police Office’s computers to access the Internet and browse the site.
The Integrated Internet Child Exploitation Unit (IICE) conducted the investigation in relation to viewing and possession of child pornography, and arrested him on June 5.
According to Cpl. Diane Blain, it is believed that there are two victims involved.
I guess in this case RCMP stands for Really Creepy Mangy Pedophile.
No disrespect intended to the real men and woman of the RMCP.
