Desiree Lee Padilla
Harlingen infant porn suspect met sex offender on MocoSpace:
Swiss Miss up there is 22-year-old Desiree Lee Padilla of Harlingen, Texas. She was recently arrested for allegedly sending explicit pictures of an infant girl to a registered sex offender that she met on MocoSpace. Again with Texas and MocoSpace. I have to wonder once again if it’s just being reported more in Texas than any other area.
Anyway, the sex offender in question is 41-year-old James Leland Copeland Jr. who was convicted on child porn charges in Tennessee in 2005. He’s been in and out of prison since. He’s been arrested as well in this case.
Investigators say that Padilla sent pictures of her performing a sex act on an infant girl at Copeland’s request. The articles come out have not said if the girl was Padilla’s daughter.
Unfortunately this is not the uncommon occurrence you may think it is. Over at Bad Breeders there have been a multitude of stories of women who have sent their insignificant others child porn usually involving their own children. I don’t care if the guy was a multi-billionaire who was going to set you up for life on a private island. There is no man or woman out there that’s worth violating a baby for.
Do we as a society think so little of our children anymore?
Undercover H.B. officer thwarts possible sex crime:
In my opinion the Huntington Beach Police Department in California is one of the most proactive law enforcement agencies when it comes to catching sexual predators on craigslist. They’ve been featured on this site many times before and it’s good to see that they’re still being vigilant.
Most recently they arrested 55-year-old Carlton Earl Griner for allegedly placing an ad on craigslist soliciting for sex. He thought he was meeting a 13-year-old girl at a shopping center but the person he was exchanging sexually explicit e-mails with was a Huntington Beach detective. Shopping Centers or malls is the other prerequisite meeting place for creepers like this to meet their victims. Griner is a registered sex offender for having a prior conviction in Iowa on child pornography charges.
While the HBPD may be doing their job in catching this creepers it doesn’t feel like the state is backing them up. While Griner is facing a lifetime on the sex offender registry he’s only looking at 5 years in prison. Obviously the registry wasn’t enough to keep him from offending again.
And once again this shows that craigslist has become the weekly flier for sexual predators shopping for victims.
Court nixes sentence in Pa. MySpace sex case:
In 2010 a then 33-year-old Michael E. Begin of Bradford, Pennsylvania was arrested for soliciting sex from a 14-year-old girl online. He posed as a 20-year-old Marine sniper who also happened to be of Cherokee descent. When he was arrested at the meeting place he had condoms, handcuffs and a knife in his possession. Last year he was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison.
Now the fake sniper but real predator will be receiving a new sentence…
The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals says a federal judge didn’t consider arguments from Michael Begin’s defense attorney that the sentence might be unduly harsh.
Unduly harsh? You have got to be kidding me. Investigators put a stop to what could have been the brutal rape, torture and murder of a 14-year-old girl and they want to talk about how a 20 year prison sentence is unduly harsh to a scumbag child predator? At the time of his arrest he was already a registered sex offender for charges of corruption of minors, indecent assault and indecent exposure in 2000.This is just one of the many things that is wrong with our justice system.
With any luck he’ll get an even longer sentence but I doubt that will happen.
And by trolling I mean the dictionary definition (#2) and not the Urban Dictionary definition.
Chestnuthill tip leads to child porn arrest in Canada:
Ex-hockey coach busted for sending child porn to U.S. teen:
37-year-old Eric Ernest Cloutier of Timmins, Ontario has been arrested for allegedly sending child porn to a 15-year-old girl he met over the anonymous chat site Omegle.
Police say that Cloutier told the girl he was having sex with his 13-year-old daughter before sending her the video. Luckily Cloutier has no daughter.
The girl from Pennsylvania notified the NCMEC who in turn notified authorities.
Not so luckily is that Cloutier is a convicted sex offender. He served less than a year on house arrest and weekend jail for trying to hook up with a 14-year-old girl that he met online back in 2010. If you think the US is bad on how it lightly sentences child predators Canada is even worse.
When will all courts start treating these scumbags like the monsters they are and when will parents wake up to the real dangers to their children that are on the internet?
Sex Offender Victor Gaston Sentenced For Social Media Violations:
NC Sex Offender Gets Prison for Facebook Request:
As I have mentioned many times before it is illegal in the state of North Carolina for registered sex offenders to be on any social networking site. I’ve called these offenders that ignore the law dumbfish because it’s basically like a fish jumping into the boat.
Today we have such another dumbfish by the name of Victor Gaston. Gaston, 36, is from Reidsville, NC and spent a mere 2 years in jail for taking indecent liberties with a child. The law apparently did not stop Gaston from allegedly trying to friend his victim from that crime on Facebook. For his troubles Gaston was sent back to state prison for roughly 7 1/2 years.
I wish he had gotten more time for his crimes. Imagine the horror that the victim must have gone through again after receiving his friend request.
But as long as these sex offenders are going to be idiots like this NC is going to keep sending them to prison. Not for long enough though if you ask me.
Sex offender takes plea deal in case that prompted change to state law:
I originally posted about German Baeza here. He’s the convicted rapist who cut off his ankle monitor and went on to rape again.
In 2004 Baeza pleaded no contest to rape and got 6 years. Not long after he got out he met a 15-year-old girl on a social networking site and raped her. He also forced a 14-year-old girl into his car at gunpoint and tried to rape her.
He was facing multiple life sentences but thanks to the wonders of plea bargaining he’s only getting 30 years. He shouldn’t have been let out in the first place. Six years for one of the most horrible crimes you can commit is more than a joke.
It’s getting to the point in our society where rape isn’t seen as that big of a deal anymore and that’s pathetic.
NW Pa. man gets 20 years in MySpace teen case:
I originally posted about Michael Begin of Bradford, Pennsylvania here. He’s the dude in his early 30s who was posing as a 20-year-old Marine sniper on MySpace who also happened to be Cherokee. He was using that huge raft of bullshit in order to entice a 14-year-old girl into meeting him for sex (child rape). Luckily the girl’s mom was paying attention and called the FBI.
The FBI then posed as the girl and set up the meeting with Sgt. Lyingpig who had handcuffs on him when he was arrested. He was also a registered sex offender.
Now he’s a current convict as this week he was sentenced to 20 years in federal prison after pleading guilty last October. 20 years in hell for a known creeper. He’ll wish he really had some of those Marine skills.
