29-year-old Felix Joel Perez Fong, of Phoenix, Arizona, has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting an underage girl that he was friends with on Facebook. He is said to have met the victim at a family party before continuing to talk to the girl on Facebook where they exchanged explicit pictures. Reports say that Fong repeatedly mentioned that he knew the girl was half his age. So let’s assume that the victim was either 14 or 15, that’s still under the legal age of consent. Apparently the age difference wasn’t large enough to stop Fong from picking the girl up from school so they could have sex, or as it should be called child rape.
There’s nothing that’s not creepy about this story, from meeting the girl at a family party to picking the girl up at school for sex. If you’re not careful, this is who could be talking to your kids on Facebook. While kids are more likely to be abused by someone they know, like a friend of the family, doesn’t mean predators won’t use electronic means such as Facebook to groom their victims.
27-year-old Sandy Doan of Dallas, Texas, has allegedly fallen into the same pitfalls of too many teachers these days. She started communicating with one of her middle school students over Instagram and Kik (no Snapchat?) before starting a sexual relationship with the student. Normally I would be throwing sarcastic quotes around about ‘having sex’ and ‘relationship’, but it’s hard to call the kid a victim in this instance.
“Anit [expletive] watch ima start getting the pics and everything ready … to show the cops right I anit playing,” the messages read, according to police.
Doan, also known as Thao Doan, wasn’t arrested until the kid’s mother found out that her son was receiving large amounts of money from Doan. The kid’s mother also said that he has a lengthy juvenile criminal record. However, police sources say that the then 14-year-old blackmailer will probably not face any charges. Why in the blue hell not?
While Sandy Doan is allegedly ultimately responsible for landing herself in the situation in the first place, the extortion of $28,000 is not something that should just be chalked up to boys being boys. To not charge him shows other kids in his community that crime does pay.
Speaking of age, because I know some of you will try to argue this point, the age of consent in California is 18 and they’re pretty serious about it. According to Wikipedia, no one may have sexual contact with anyone under 18.
Investigators believe Martin may have tried to lure other young girls around the Sacramento area. Anyone who suspects their child may have been a victim is asked to contact detectives at email@example.com.
As usual the same cautions apply, learn to use these apps, know who your kids’ online friends are, and hold on to their devices at night. If not, you may find your child in the home of a 33-year-old pervert.
21-year-old Austin Prewitt of London, Kentucky, was recently arrested on third-degree rape charges when he was allegedly found in the bedroom of a 15-year-old girl. Before you even ask, the age of consent in Kentucky is 16, and the age gap between Prewitt and his victim is too large to be considered under the wrongly named Romeo and Juliet clause of the law.
Think about that for a moment. A father finds some guy on top of his daughter who was in possession of a stolen gun. This could have quickly gone sideways in so many ways, we could have been talking about a murder instead.
If you’re allowing your kids to use any of these apps like Snapchat without any kind of supervision, you could be surprised one night by finding a stranger in their bedroom. Not only should you learn how to use these apps, but you should consider holding on to your kids’ devices at night for safe keeping. While neither of these actions are a perfect solution, they can go a long way in protecting your kids.
The Snapchat exchanges allegedly led to games of beer pong, sex on park benches and eventually to sex in her fiancée’s apartment in McKinney, Texas.
Ferguson only had her job at the school district a few months before resigning amid her arrest. She was also able to post the $100,000 bond she was being held for, on a teacher’s salary no less.
Another teacher, another case of Snapchat leading to sexual charges against children and it seems the female teachers are disproportionately assaulting their students more frequently than their male counterparts. Which brings us to the old argument of the troglodytes who say ‘I wish I had teachers like this when I was their age’ before high-fiving the same guys they hung out with in high school at the BW3 in the same town that they’ve never left.
A female teacher having sex (child rape) with a male student is just as damaging as it is if the gender roles were reversed. Let this be another reason for parents to not only be more aware of what their kids are doing on social media but to also keep their devices in your possession at night. It’s not just your daughters that you have to worry about it when it comes to inappropriate advances from teachers.
I have a backlog of stories that need posting so some of posts in the near future will be done in what I like to call ‘lightning round’ style. This will be one of them.
29-year-old high school teacher June Kendall, is accused of having sex with two 17-year-old male students from the school. The subject was allegedly broached over the photo sharing app Snapchat, which was said to have included Kendall sharing explicit photos of herself. She reportedly had sex with the two students, albeit separately, at the school during school hours.
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.
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.
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.
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.
