27-year-old Amelia Tat was a middle school teacher in Charlottesville, Virginia. Last June, she was arrested for having sex with a 14-year-old male student after communicating with the student on Instagram, and of course Snapchat. The ‘relationship’ (child rape) went on for 8 months before the boy’s mother discovered text messages between Tat and the student.
For those of you who say things like “I wish I had a teacher like that when I was 14”, the boy has been diagnosed with PTSD. So, I hope you’re also hoping for a lifetime of mental health problems to go along with your statutory rape fantasy.
Surprisingly, Tat was sentenced to ten years in prison. Not surprisingly she had eight years suspended. So she’ll only have to spend two years in prison and I have no doubt she’ll be released early since she’s a new mother. Thankfully, not with her victim.
Genovese told her he would see her in 15 minutes and drove to her house, according to a probable cause statement filed by the Greene County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the statement, Genovese told her he would bring a condom with him and she replied she didn’t know what a condom was.
Genovese allegedly then had sexual intercourse and oral sex with the 12-year-old girl.
I think my computer hates me for making it paste that. Maybe that’s why my last computer died, it probably killed itself.
Genovese has been charged with statutory rape, but in a just world, he should be charged with child molestation.
This is what could happen if you not only allow your kids to have access to their devices at night, but if you don’t check their activity as well. Since Kik is popular with teens and pre-teens it has attracted an ungodly amount of sex offenders, pedophiles, and child porn collectors. Letting your kids have unfettered access to the internet like this gives predators an open window that leads directly to your children.
40-year-old Mark Trabucco, of Clay, New York, was a principal at a nearby middle school. He’s accused of allegedly using Snapch….hang on a sec…craigslist to have sexual contact with an underage girl. Sorry, when it comes to teachers, I start to type out Snapchat by force of habit.
There’s not as many details as I like, however, from what I can gather, Trabucco responded to a craigslist ad that was supposedly placed by the girl. Trabucco is said to have used this ad to arrange a meeting with the girl where they reportedly engaged in sexual contact. To further clarify, Trabucco was charged with two counts of a criminal sex act in the 3rd degree. According to a brief Google search, under New York state law, no person over 21-years of age can have sex with someone who is under the age of 17. The victim is said to have told her parents after the crime was committed.
Personally, I’d like to know what the ad was for, and why it caused Trabucco to allegedly proceed the way he did.
Lastly, the girl was not a student of his school. Well of course she wasn’t. Then he would have used Snapchat.
Hey look, a teacher having sex with students. Hey look, Snapchat was involved. What are the odds?
Anyway, 38-year-old Heather Lee Robertson, of Lufkin, Texas, is a kindergarten teacher accused of allegedly having sex with students. Not the kindergarten students, but high school students from the same school district. Police say one of the boys was sexting (how I loathe that word) with Robertson through Snapchat. That student is said to have brought a friend and they all had a threesome. Two other students said that Robertson would pick them up from their home and take them back to her place, and not for extra credit. Robertson claims she ‘recently’ started drinking heavily and can’t recall many of the details.
While the cretins among us are part of the ‘I wish I had a teacher like that’ crowd, this is nothing to laugh about. These kids could go on to have very warped ideas when it comes to relationships with women, seeing them more as conquests or things to be objectified rather than treating them like equals.
40-year-old Aaron Karl Esplin, of Hurricane, Utah, is, or was, a high school teacher. He’s accused of allegedly having a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old female student of his. Considering this is a teacher we’re talking about, you know that Snapchat is involved. Esplin is believed to have requested nude pictures of the girl through the picture sharing app.
The age of consent for women is 16-years-old, however, the law also states that anyone under 18 can not consent to a relationship with anyone who is ten years or more older. That’s all moot though since Esplin was said to be in possession of explicit pictures of the girl, which is legally considered child porn.
This shows that social media can be used by sketchy teachers like this to circumvent parents and have direct access to your children. I may be an old man yelling at a cloud, but I think it’s inappropriate for teachers to have any kind of communication with students that’s not through their parents or properly authorized school channels.
I originally posted about Sean Price here. He’s the man from Queens, New York, who is accused of luring a 16-year-old girl from Sydney, Australia to Queens, New York, through Snapchat. Unsurprisingly, Price is now trying to blame the victim for his predicament.
‘First of all, she told me she was 22 – and I made my choice. Do you ask a girl for ID if she looks young? No,’ Price said.
‘If I figured she was that young I wouldn’t have met her.’
Right. So in the entire time you were chatting with her, through the time you bought the airline ticket, up until the time she was discovered in your mom’s basement, you’re going to tell me that you never knew her age? So why then did you allegedly have your mother tell police that neither you nor the girl were there? You are said to have driven her from L.A. to New York and you’re going to tell me the subject of her age never came up? Plus, didn’t you have to know her date of birth in order to purchase the ticket from Sydney to L.A.?
As an aside, in my previous post I wondered where the case would be prosecuted. From the Daily Mail article, it seems to indicate he will be prosecuted in the US, but could be further prosecuted in Australia. This will be an interesting one to watch.
25-year-old Raymond Phelps, of Bernardston, Massachusetts, is accused of allegedly having sex (e.g. child rape) with a 14-year-old-girl he met through the website Omegle. For those of you unfamiliar with Omegle, it’s a website that pairs you with random people and allows you to cam-chat with them. This being the internet, it’s been abused by numerous predators and child porn collectors since it’s frequented by teens.
The incident happened back in February when Phelps is said to have taken the girl to a movie where he started inappropriately touching the girl. Then the two are said to have ‘had sex’ later in Phelps’ truck. While the victim says the sex was consensual she also reportedly told police that Phelps knew her age. Meanwhile, Phelps is using the “I didn’t know she was 14” defense.
Personally, I don’t feel like Omegle gets enough attention from law enforcement. While there’s not as many stories about it in the news like Kik, it’s still the most popular search term used to find my site. Those search terms are usually something like “Can I get arrested from using Omegle?”, which leads me to believe that more people are using it for nefarious reasons than people believe.
Let’s also not forget that Omegle is a website, not an app. It can be used by any device that has a camera and a web browser.
I’ve posted stories before about predators who have lured girls from across the country. I’ve posted stories before about how predators have lured girls from one country to another, usually from Canada to the US. To my recollection this is the first time I’ve ever posted a story about an alleged predator who lured a girl from another hemisphere.
39-year-old Sean Price, of Queens, New York, is accused of luring a 16-year-old girl, who he met on Snapchat, from Sydney, Australia, to his home on Queens. Price allegedly sent the girl $1500 USD in order for her to fly from Sydney to L.A. Price is said to have met the girl in L.A., then the pair drove from L.A. to New York. They are said to have ‘had sex’ in multiple states during their coast to coast road trip. Depending on the state, the ‘had sex’ may actually be ‘child rape’.
The NYPD received a tip from Australian authorities and tracked down Price at the home he shared with his mother. At first, even his own mother covered for him, stating that he wasn’t home but police eventually found him and his victim in the basement. That’s right, they found a shifty online creep who couldn’t get women his own age in mom’s basement.
A flight from Sydney to L.A. is 7500 miles and takes 15 hours. To then drive from L.A. to Queens is 2800 miles and takes around 3-4 days if you drive for 12 hours a day. This jackhole took this girl from her home and family with the most obsessive depravity I’ve ever had the displeasure of reading about. If there’s some online sexual predator book of records this scumbag definitely wins the award for most miles lured.
Tumblr is the ultra-popular blogging site among young people. It’s where they make their angsty posts about how they’re offended by everything, how Trump is Hitler, and where all sorts of people are told to check their privilege. Since it is so popular among teens, it’s not uncommon for a child predator to use Tumblr to their advantage. For us internet olds, Tumblr is the heir apparent to LiveJournal.
For example, take 23-year-old Christopher David Galliway, of Fenton, Michigan. Mr. Young Combover made the 1,300 mile and 20 hour trip from his home in Felton, to College Station, Texas, where he allegedly had sex with a 16-year-old girl he had met through Tumblr. Don’t forget kids, around here we call having sex with minors child rape, and since I know you’re wondering, the age of consent in Texas is 17.
One of the features Tumblr has that parents need to be aware of is its instant messaging feature. That’s right, you have yet another messaging app to be on the lookout for. That’s not even accounting that Tumblr in itself is a very sexually charged platform. Not only is there tons of porn on Tumblr, both professional and homemade, it’s also been used in the past among child porn traders. On the Google Play Store the app is rated as Mature, which is the equivalent of an R rating for apps.
If your children are on Tumblr, there is a ton of questionable content they can be exposed to that’s probably not healthy for them. It would be worth your while not only to check out your kid’s Tumblr, but to see who they’re following as well. You never know when one of them may show up at your doorstep while you’re not home and your child is.
I’m extremely curious as to how the girl got to Texas from California considering it’s a trip that’s almost 2,000 miles by car. Did he buy her a plane ticket, or more likely a bus ticket? Did he make the 4,000 mile round trip from Texas to California and back again to pick her up from her home? It’s not unheard of for online predators to go to such lengths to procure their victims.
Of course it was determined that Arthur was ‘having sex’ with the girl, or as it should be called, child rape. This should come as no surprise, considering Kik is rampant with sex offenders and pedophiles. Again, because this app is so popular among teens, and even pre-teens, it’s become a veritable hunting ground for predators. If this app is on your child’s phone, you should be concerned with whom they might be talking to. You may trust your child, but do you trust the stranger on the other end? You shouldn’t.
