Malden man charged with child trafficking:
Pair charged in trafficking of girl for sex:
Malden man, Lynn woman indicted on child sex trafficking charges:
24-year-old David Minasian of Malden, Massachusetts and 23-year-old Madonna Say of Lynn, Massachusetts have been indicted on federal charges of prostituting a 15-year-old girl on Backpage. The girl was a runaway who Minasian and Say allegedly took to Florida to have her work as a prostitute for them. On the way there the pair supplied the girl with booze, weed and percocet. Originally they told the girl that they would split the money but of course they didn’t. Then when they got back to Massachusetts they told the girl they she owed them money for the drugs they gave her. They also took explicit pictures of her when they advertised her on Backpage.
While the pair are being held without bail they are looking at a max of 25-years.
The statutory minimum penalty for sex trafficking of a child is 10 years in prison, followed by five years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine. The statutory minimum penalty for sex trafficking by force, fraud and coercion is 15 years, followed by five years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.
Unless the sentences are concurrent then they’re looking at a max of 15. In reality I’ll be surprised if they even get 10. These sentences need to be tougher. When dealing in prostitution and human trafficking if you really want to discourage these kinds of crimes they need to make the risk much greater than the reward.
Meanwhile Backpage is still making profits off of these kids being trafficked and very few people actually care.
Roman Thomas III,
Police: Miami pimp forced teen to tattoo his name on her eyelids:
Earlier this month Miami police arrested Roman Thomas III for allegedly prostituting a 13-year-old girl on Backpage. Police say he did this while on probation for having sex (child rape) with a minor. Reports say that he was wearing an ankle monitor at the time of his most recent arrest.
When the 13-year-old girl tried to leave Thomas he took her to a flea market and the phrase ‘Suave House’ tattooed across her eyelids. Suave is Thomas’ street name while house indicates that she is his ‘property’. Before I go on a lot of pimps have their victims tattooed as their property. If they’re not already any tattoo parlor caught doing this should be prosecuted as aiding and abetting. No legitimate tattoo parlor would ever tattoo a 13-year-old girl.
Police say that Thomas also supplied the girl with drugs and liquor and threatened her with violence in an incident where she was duct taped after some money went missing.
If you think that this isn’t typical behavior for pimp or trafficker you’d be wrong. In a lot of stories that I post the victims of these traffickers end up brutally beaten, maimed or worse. If you’re looking for somewhere to point the finger at I would suggest Backpage.com since they’re the ones who are not only allowing these underage and abused girls to be advertised on their site but they’re making money from it as well. They make money from every underage girl who is turned out on their site. They make money from the pimps and trafficking lowlifes that beat, rape and torture these girls if they don’t submit to their every whim. Is this the kind of business we want operating anywhere in the world? I sure as hell don’t and neither should you.
Investigators say they believe there are other young victims out there and have established a hotline. Anyone with information may call the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Human Trafficking Hotline at 305-350-5567.
Thanks to Adrianne for the tip.
Nelson Carrizo in prison jumpsuit and as an emo douche.
Cops say man lured teen for sex using vampire website:
30-year-old Nelson Carrizo of the Miami-Dade area pleaded guilty to 10 counts of child porn back in October. A court-ordered shrink said that Carrizo was of no danger to society. Carrizo was sentenced to 50 years but through his plea deal he was only going to serve 3 years in prison with 10 years probation. Also he was allowed out on bond so he could enjoy the holidays before going to prison. He surrendered himself to authorities on January 9th of this year.
While out on bond enjoying the holidays police say that Carrizo ‘had sex’ with a 16-year-old girl that he had met in the goth social network VampireFreaks. The article does it better justice than I can about how screwed up this is.
Days earlier, according to a search warrant filed in Miami-Dade circuit court, Palm Beach County deputies found a 16-year-old girl in a local gym trying to slash her wrists with her own fingernails.
Deputies committed the girl to a hospital for a psychological evaluation. Investigators soon learned that her parents had found explicit text messages and photos on her phone.
The teen revealed that she had first met Carrizo on VampireFreaks in June 2012 — two years after the man had been arrested for child porn. They knew each other’s true age, the girl told detectives.
Over the months, Carrizo “asked her several times if she was a cop and if this was a setup,” the warrant said. She sent him nude photos to prove she was not.
Then in December — two months after he had pleaded guilty — Carrizo began urging her to come to Miami for sex.
And I kid you not, the 30-year-old Carrizo is said to have lived with his mother and allegedly had the girl sneak in while his mom was asleep. A lot of these online creepers always seem to have a Norman Bates vibe around them. Not to mention that anyone that’s 30-years-old on VF is suspect to me anyway.
Seriously though this guy obviously he knew what he was doing was wrong since he kept asking if this was a setup. Too bad the court ordered shrink assessment was completely wrong. Scum like this should not be afforded any special luxuries like being able to turn themselves in at a later date. It’s not like returning a library book (ask your parents what that means). Once a pedo always a pedo and they should be treated as such.
School employee accused of trying to meet teen for sex:
48-year-old Mark Thorpe was arrested in Oviedo, Florida for allegedly soliciting sex from a 14-year-old boy on craigslist. According to police he arranged to meet the teen at one local park but when the park appeared to be too crowded he changed the meeting spot to another park. Of course the teen turned out to be the police and Thorpe was arrested. Police say that Thorpe had 2 porn DVDs and candy in his possession. I wonder if he drove a windowless van too.
Thorpe is a food service manager at a local middle school. Does that make him head lunch lady? Because of his position he is being held with no bond.
I remember back in the day when MySpace was all the rage various politicians and media organizations put the pressure on them to keep sexual predators off their site but yet none of these groups give a rat’s ass about craigslist.,
Dontavious Mingel Blake
Couple used Backpage.com to pimp 15-year-old girl, say federal prosecutors:
Federal investigators recently arrested 32-year-old Dontavious Mingel Blake and 26-year-old Tara Jo Moore for allegedly prostituting several people in the Palm Beach County, Florida area including a 15-year-old girl. The 15-year-old was not only advertised on Backpage but she says that Blake and Moore continued to use her picture even after she stopped working for them. She should consider herself lucky because most pimps and traffickers don’t allow anyone to stop working for them. Blake and Moore are both looking at life sentences although I’ll believe that when I see it.
Now I would imagine that Florida has to be one of the biggest sex trafficking hotspots in the country. Between all the tourist attractions and the multitude of reasons there are for visiting Florida you would think that he would hear more of these stories out of the Sunshine State, yet we don’t.
The last Florida Backpage story I posted was in January but before that the most recent child prostitution arrest I posted about was in July of last year. Again, I doubt that child sex trafficking activity has curtailed in Florida and I doubt that Backpage is doing anything about it. Granted in this case Backpage did respond to FBI requests but obviously didn’t do anything to prevent the advertisement of an underage girl being sold for sex from appearing on their website.
It’s not just Florida though, this is happening all over the country yet it’s barely being reported anymore. Are these type of stories too depressing for readers so publications and media outlets don’t do them, or is it because rarely are the victims blonde girls from suburbia?
One child, any child regardless of race, religion or social status being trafficked for sex in this country is too many and the people need to be informed that it is going on in their backyards no matter where they live.
Deangelo Jones, 20, Convicted Of Pimping Underaged Florida Girls On Backpage.com:
20-year-old Deangelo Jones was convicted last month for trafficking minors for sex on Backpage in the Fort Lauderdale area. The girls that Jones sold for sex were between the ages of 12-14. He had sex (child rape) with at least two of the girls he pimped including a 12-year-old girl. He also beat one girl in front of a room of strangers while she was naked because she tried to keep 20 bucks from him. Now tell me about consenting adults again.
Jones will be sentenced in February. No word on what his sentence would be but whatever it will be it won’t be enough.
Yet there is still no outrage about this except for a handful of people including myself. Why are issues of child sex trafficking not getting more media attention? Why is there not more people calling on Backpage to close the adult section of its site? Why aren’t people doing more about this? It’s not just an issue that’s happening in third-world countries. It’s happening here and now in the supposedly most advanced country in the nation. But instead most people are more concerned about what their favorite political party is doing or what happened on their trashy reality shows. Meanwhile while you’re getting fat and happy children all around the country from all races, creeds and backgrounds are being sold as sex slaves on a public website. I guess as long as it’s not happening to your kids it’s ok right? Stand up. Tell people. Spread the word that this is happening for real. Educate somebody, anybody to make them more aware of what’s going on.
I’m tired of preaching to the choir. Now it’s time to go forth and educate the ‘heathen’ masses. If someone brings up craigslist or Backpage in a conversation casually tell them that you do not use the site because of the women and children being sold into sexual slavery. Don’t take a holier than thou attitude just mention it to them and if they want to know more point them to my site or any other site that’s taken a stand against the icons of greed that are craigslist and backpage.
John Daniel Hatch
Man held on lewd battery charge:
Nassau County man charged with sex attack on teenager in Clay County:
25-year-old John Daniel Hatch has been charged with allegedly having sex with (child raping) a Clay County, Florida girl. The girl’s age has not been mentioned but is somewhere between 13 and 16. That means she’s younger than 16 for you tools who can’t comprehend things.
Hatch met the girl on MeetMe where she supposedly agreed to have sex with him. Police say that Hatch showed up at the girl’s house with two people, a man and a woman. Police were called to the house when the girl’s parents noticed a reasonable amount of money missing. The theft is still being investigated.
First let me address the pedo-defenders out there. I already know what you’re going to say. “She’s just blaming Hatch for the missing money when she really took it.” That’s all well and good but police seem to have some, let’s say genetic evidence, where they feel comfortable enough that Hatch still raped the girl. And don’t even give me the she lied about her age crap. That’s never been a valid excuse to commit child rape.
Now let me address the parents of teenage girls. Show your kids these articles I linked to. Show them when they invite someone over to their house they don’t know how many people they might be bringing. This girl is lucky that she wasn’t killed. If they had killed her they may have never been caught.
Tyler Hadley expected to use ‘involuntary intoxication’ as defense in murder trial:
Recently Tyler Hadley’s public defender stated that more than likely he intends to file for an involuntary intoxication defense for his client. A then 17-year-old Hadley bludgeoned his parents to death and then held a party that he invited his friends to through Facebook. The party went on while his parents lay dead in their bedroom.
So basically Hadley’s defender is blaming the murder on booze and drugs. That would be all well and good if Hadley was on something like PCP but he wasn’t. Supposedly Hadley was on Ecstasy that night. While I’m no drug connoisseur I was under the impression that Ecstasy had quite the opposite effect. If Hadley did take anything prior to the murders my guess would be on alcohol so he could give himself liquid courage. Hadley already had his plan in mine when he killed his parents. The booze and/or drugs just helped it along.
Manuel and Johnson
Police: Men held prostitutes at gunpoint, refused to pay them:
The headline more than betrays the actual crime in my opinion.
In Altamonte Springs, Florida police arrested Corey Manuel, 21, and Branden Johnson, 20, for allegedly using the Village Voice Media owned backpage.com to find prostitutes, holding them at gunpoint, forcing them to have sex with them, then as the article puts it, refusing to pay them. The last time I checked forcing someone, anyone, to have sex at gunpoint is known as rape regardless if they’re prostitutes or not.
Again I have to ask when did rape become such a dirty word to use to describe the crime?
So not only is Backpage facilitating in the trafficking of women in children but they’re also facilitating rapes. Tell me again how Backpage is part of the solution.
Mississippi Man Charged In Case of Missing British Teen:
Neckbeard The Clown is 21-year-old Zachary Miller of Starkville, Mississippi. Rather than meeting a woman in the real world police say that Miller took to Omegle to meet one. In case you’re behind on the times Omegle is a webcam chat site whose motto is “Talk To Strangers”. Their terms of service allow anyone as young as 13 to be on their site and it’s not moderated for content. If you dare to go there it should take you negative seconds to find some guy showing his junk on cam.
Anyway police say that Miller met a 16-year-old British girl on Omegle and continued their ‘relationship’ on other social networking sites. The pair allegedly hatched a plan to run off together. So when the girl and her family were on vacation in Davenport, Florida Miller made the 650 mile trek to pick her up. He then took the girl back to his home in Miss. where he hid her in his room because he knew his parents would disapprove.
Supposedly no shenanigans took place because Miller has been charged with any sexual crimes. He has been charged with interference with child custody, removing a minor from the state and contributing to the delinquency of a minor. I guess it’s not kidnapping since she went willingly.
While she was relatively unharmed I can only imagine the terror her parents must have gone through. If you want to reduce your chances of experiencing that kind of terror I would recommend that you make sure your kids don’t go to Omegle or any webcam chat site. As I’ve said before no minor child needs a webcam. It wouldn’t hurt to make sure they only use their computers in a public area like the living room. Or don’t if you want to find one of your kids 650 miles from home hidden in someone’s closet.
