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.

17-year-old accused of producing child porn on Kik

DonnieHoward

Normally, and I use that term loosely, when you hear about a teenager being arrested for child porn it’s because he either took an explicit picture of himself or he had an explicit picture of his girlfriend and shared it with his buddies. Not this time.

17-year-old Donnie Howard of Crawford, Texas, has been arrested for allegedly producing child porn on the mobile messaging app Kik. If you’re new to my site, in the past I’ve documented how Kik is rife with sex offenders and pedophiles and many of them use the app to trade or produce child porn. Howard is said to be no exception.

The teen is accused of sexually assaulting an 8-year-old boy while streaming it over Kik to an, as of yet, unknown person. Howard is said to have threatened the victim with violence if he told anyone about what had happened. He’s also accused of molesting a 6-year-old girl and sharing the photographs of that on Kik as well. He’s currently being held on $1.25M bond.

While I’m not excusing his alleged actions, since 17 is more than old enough to know they’re wrong, one can easily surmise that there’s more than one person in this operation. I have to wonder if he was groomed into this type of behavior by another predator on Kik or some other social platform which is yet one more reason to know what apps your kids are using and who they talk to on them.

UPDATE 8/21/2017: Howard was sentenced to 20 years and must serve 10 before being eligible for parole.

NY wrestling coach accused of luring boy through Snapchat

Marcus Stroud

Marcus Stroud

Once again it appears that Snapchat is the mobile messaging app preferred by predators who are either teachers or youth athletic coaches. For example we have 18-year-old Marcus Stroud of Nyack, New York. He’s been charged with alleged criminal sex acts against a teenage boy that he became acquainted with through a wrestling program where Stroud is a volunteer coach. Stroud allegedly used Snapchat to groom his victim. Police have stated that Stroud has worked in wresting programs in Rockland and Westchester Counties in New York and Bergen County in New Jersey and may have other victims…

If you have additional information about this case or are aware of a possible victim please call the Clarkstown Juvenile Aid Bureau at 845-639-5835, the Tips Line at 1-877-639-6233 or your local police department. The investigation is being conducted by the Clarkstown Juvenile Aid Bureau.

Even in today’s world controlled by social media I am still of the belief that it is highly inappropriate for teachers or coaches to communicate with kids in manners that circumvent their parents.

Craigslist baby sitter admits child molestation. This is my shocked face.

Daniel Benson Billman

42-year-old Daniel Benson Billman, of Aransas Pass, Texas, pleaded guilty yesterday to production of child porn charges and faces up to 50 years in prison. As part of Billman’s plea deal he admitted to molesting a 7-year-old girl who was in his care. Billman was watching the girl because he advertised his baby sitting services on craigslist. He is said to have recorded himself molesting the girl.

Why on Earth would anyone use the services of a baby sitter that advertised on craigslist, especially one that’s a middle-aged man? That just screams creep factor to me. I know, you’re probably a craigslist baby sitter who’s a nice guy. I don’t care. I would never use those services in a million years.

A kouple of Kik Kreepers for your weekend

kik

38-year-old of Steven Wayne Robinson, of Daisetta, Texas, is accused of allegedly sexually abusing children including an infant and then trading the images through Kik and Dropbox. This one is a real piece of filth…

That user initially said he created the contents of a folder named “baby niece,” but later admitted that another Kik account holder produced the films and makes “new videos every weekend.”

He’s looking at a mandatory 15-year-minimum. Let’s hope he gets closer to the maximum.

***

33-year-old William Henry Steinhaus IV, of Brunswick, Maryland, has been indicted on child porn and sex abuse charges. Steinhaus was arrested last year after allegedly sharing child porn on Kik with a federal investigator. Authorities also believe that Steinhaus violated a 2-year-old girl and shared the images with other Kik users. He’s looking at a 100 year sentence.

UPDATE 12/10/2016: Steinhaus has pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation of a child to produce pornography.

UPDATE 3/18/2017: Earlier this week, Steinhaus was sentenced to only 25 years behind bars. Not nearly enough for such a vile cretin.

UPDATE 3/24/2017: Steinhaus may be facing an additional 25 years behind bars…

“It was actually separate crimes even though they were intertwined, because he was abusing the child, and he was also digitally recording and sharing it. He was charged federally with the making of the child pornography, and, locally, he was charged with the abuse of the child,” said Frederick County Maryland’s Assistant State’s Attorney Tammy Leache.

If he gets the additional time, that may be a more fitting sentence.

UPDATE 4/25/2017: Steinhaus did get the additional 25 years.

Kik may want to start being more aggressive in their efforts to rid its services of child porn before it’s known as the preferred messaging app of pedophiles and sex offenders. That can’t be good for their bottom line.

When Bad Breeders and Kik kollide: Woman molests 2-year-old for Kik kreeper boyfriend

Antonio Boleware

Antonio Boleware

43-year-old Joanna Olson of Longview, Washington, was recently indicted on charges of child molestation and child porn. Olson allegedly molested a 2-year-old girl and shared the images with her boyfriend, 38-year-old Antonio Boleware of San Diego, aka Tony Papabear. More like Tony Pedobear, but I digress.

Boleware then allegedly shared the images on Kik with an undercover FBI agent…

Writing in court papers, a Vancouver-based FBI agent said another Kik user sent the undercover officer videos of Olson exposing and sexually abusing a 2-year-old girl. The other user said Olson had agreed he could “breed” with the girl.

“She’s always been an fantasy pedo mom,” the other Kik user said in a chat with the undercover officer, according to charging papers. “I just made it real for her.”

Not surprising in the least Boleware is a registered sex offender whose previous charges involved children.

What is always surprising is why any woman would willingly molest not just a child, but if Boleware is to believed, her own child to please a boyfriend? I have to ask this every time I post a story like this because it’s just so unfathomable to me. This is worse than when someone refuses to leave an abusive relationship because their significant other says that they love them. It’s much worse because they’re inflicting horrific and scarring abuse on an innocent child by someone whose main duty is supposed to be to protect them.

If you believe a child is being sexually abused call your local police or contact the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s CyberTipline at 1 (800) 843-5678 or cybertipline.com.

Your next klass of Kik Kreepers

kik

James Ameer Wofford of Bakersfield, California is accused of allegedly posting child porn on Kik using the alias Jimmy Wolf. At the time of his arrest Wofford was a charter school employee and a daycare was being run from his home.

34-year-old Joshua A. Stevens of Cheyenne, Wyoming is accused of allegedly sexual violating a minor and posting the pics to Kik. While looking for others on Kik that were “into incest and young play” he reportedly sent the images to an undercover investigator.

Lastly, getting back to the school theme, 32-year-old high school teacher Jonathan Robert Maggiano, of Tualatin, Oregon, met a 17-year-old girl on the PC gaming platform Steam then allegedly used Kik to stay in contract with her before they ‘had sex’. Age of consent in Oregon is 18.

Remember folks, as a parent you’re the only real line of defense between online predators and your kids as Kik has been known to be frequently used by pedophiles and sex offenders.

Wash. man turned out his stepdaughter on craigslist for others to rape

childprost

Normally I don’t like to post stories where the suspects have not been named however this one is so horrid that it needs to be shared.

Recently a 56-year-old man from Marysville, Washington, allegedly admitted to advertising his 6-year-old daughter on craigslist for others to molest. He’s also accused of raping his stepdaughter as well and also faces child porn charges for allegedly recording his step-daughter being molested by someone else. Investigators say that the man may have posted 190 craigslist ads for the girl. One woman in Texas is said to have made arrangements with the man to molest the girl’s daughter.

Where was mom you ask? You should know better by now. Mom was allegedly in on it and is facing child rape and child porn charges as well. Investigators say she can be seen in one video playing on her phone while her daughter is being molested.

This is going on through craigslist all the time. For every one of these scumbags that are caught it makes me wonder how many are out there doing this with impunity. This jackhole allegedly posted close to 200 ads. It doesn’t sound like too many of them were flagged by craigslist community policing. Then again when you’re community consists of so many pedophiles how much policing is really getting done?

Why you should care about the NJ man who molested a 12-year-old boy using Kik

Aaron Johnson Jr.

Aaron Johnson Jr.

I’m sorry for posting a clickbait-like headline but I promise you that if I’m doing it there’s some actual information I think you need to know.

Recently 23-year-old Aaron Johnson Jr. of Mays Landing, New Jersey, was arrested for allegedly molesting a 12-year-old boy that he is said to have lured through the smart phone messaging app Kik. He may have also been grooming a 17-year-old boy through Kik as well.

The main reason I think this story is so important is because while it’s not exactly my hometown I did spend a lot of time in Mays Landing growing up. I know the street where Johnson lives and could still take you there to this day. So if you were wondering this can’t happen in your neighborhood, it can. It can happen anywhere no matter if your neighborhood is rich or poor or well-educated or not.

The other reason I found this story to be important is because of what the local police said. While it’s common knowledge to a lot of us it needs to be repeated. Even if a smart phone has no service through a phone company it can still be used for messaging apps over wi-fi. So even if your kids’ phone is discontinued from service they can still use it over wi-fi. Or if a predator were to give them an inactive phone it can still be used over wi-fi. So keep that on mind if you think your kids have an inactive phone it can still be used with a lot of apps.

Florida man uses dating app to molest teen

Man accused of performing sex act with teen bonds out:

 Frank Gamba

Frank Gamba

Police in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, say that 52-year-old Frank Gamba allegedly used a dating app called Mister to lure a 14-year-old boy into having sex (child rape) with him. Gamba is also said to have used messaging app Kik to communicate with the boy. Gamba claims that the boy said he was 18 but when he told him his real age Gamba allegedly said that’s even better.

Before you creeper defenders try blaming the victim let me tell you a little something about the app that Gamba was allegedly using. Mister touts itself as being the dating app for gay men over 30. There is no way that any 14-year-old kid can look 30 even if he had a receding hairline.

And again to parents you need to check what apps are on your kids smartphones. A dating app for men over 30 does not belong on the phone of a 14-year-old.
