Jeffrey Thomas Sackman
Cathedral City man arrested in missing teen, sex assault case:
Two-Face up there is 44-year-old Jeffrey Thomas Sackman of Cathedral City, California. He’s accused of holding a 15-year-old captive in his home, keeping her drugged and repeatedly raping her.
Police say that two years ago Sackman posed as a 17-year-old named Giovanni Antonio Corsentino when he first met the victim on MySpace and Facebook. Recently the girl ran away from Buena Park, California and reached out to who she thought was her friend. That’s a 2 hour drive by the way and knowing Southern California traffic it’s probably more like 4.
Sackman bought her a bus ticket with the promise of helping her get to Arizona to see her brother. As an aside it’s always the bus with these scumbags. It seems that the bus is the transportation of choice for sexual predators.
Instead of going to Arizona Sackman allegedly kept her captive in his home, kept her doped up on meth and repeatedly raped the girl. The girl’s mom was able to track down her daughter to Cathedral City and police found the girl being hidden in Sackman’s home.
The scariest part is that Sackman is not a registered sex offender and has no criminal record. That makes me wonder if this is only the first time he’s been caught. Predator scum like this are usually working more than one victim at a time. And Sackman lived in a family friendly neighborhood which shows that these monsters can live anywhere.
Police do believe that there may be other victims.
Investigators asked anyone with information to call Detective Rick Sanchez at (760) 770-0381.
UPDATE 9/27/2011: First thanks to whoever posted the link to this story at the OC Register.
Check out the laundry list of charges that have been brought against Sackman…
He has been charged with 14 felony counts, including oral copulation with a minor under the age of 16, rape of a drugged victim, sexual intercourse with a person under 16, sexual penetration with a foreign object, rape and committing a lewd act with a child under 16, said John Hall, spokesman for the Riverside District Attorney’s Office.
He was also charged with one misdemeanor count of possessing child pornography and one count of resisting a peace officer.
Police are saying that he also had another victim who he had dome something similar to you a few years ago.
Since he can’t get the death penalty, which he deserves, I hope he ends up getting one of those 100+ year sentences and not some slap on the wrist that sees him getting out in a few years.
