Baby Born From Incest Has Blood Cancer

Posted by Sandra On August - 31 - 2014 ADD COMMENTS

demaranvillestevenProsecutors have charged a Springfield man with incest after an infant was found to have a type of cancer that is caused when the parents have similar genetics. According to a probable cause statement, Steven DeMaranville, 36, impregnated a relative, and because that woman was younger than 17, he faces statutory rape and sodomy charges, in addition to incest. All three are felonies. The statement says an officer was called to Mercy earlier this month to assist child welfare workers from the Children’s Division on an investigation after a 2-month-old child was diagnosed with Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis, a type of “blood cancer” that is sometimes a result of incest.

Rotherham child abuse scandal: 1400 children exploited

imagesAt least 1,400 children were subjected to appalling sexual exploitation in Rotherham between 1997 and 2013, a report has found. Children as young as 11 were raped by multiple perpetrators, abducted, trafficked to other cities in England, beaten and intimidated, it said. The report, commissioned by Rotherham Borough Council, revealed there had been three previous inquiries. Council leader Roger Stone said he would step down with immediate effect. Mr Stone, who has been the leader since 2003, said: “I believe it is only right that as leader I take responsibility for the historic failings described so clearly. Several staff described their nervousness about identifying the ethnic origins of perpetrators for fear of being thought as racist” The inquiry team noted fears among council staff of being labelled “racist” if they focused on victims’ descriptions of the majority of abusers as “Asian” men.

Hundreds of pictures and videos of children found on hard drives and CDs

1409222838642_Image_galleryImage_michael_william_lutts_booA paediatric nurse in San Diego, California has been charged with molesting his two-month-old foster child. Michael William Lutts, 50, pleaded not guilty in federal court yesterday to a charge of sexually exploiting a child, said Darrell Foxworth, an FBI spokesman in San Diego. Court documents graphically tell of how Lutts allegedly groped the boy’s genitals while masturbating, videoing the whole event. And pictures show the boy still had his hospital tag attached to his leg as he was being abused. The documents say that Lutts then taped himself again a week later, masturbating in his living room with the baby nearby. He began molesting the boy on the day he was given custody of him, and recorded images and video on a phone that was seized during a search at his College Grove home on Tuesday, an FBI agent stated in the criminal complaint.

article-2738491-20EBB6E400000578-840_306x423The Victorian Government is facing scrutiny for appointing a senior state education official who has been linked to a shocking child abuse scandal in northern England for a 16-year period. Between 1997 and 2013, children as young as 11 were sexually exploited by gangs of men – most of them of Pakistani origin. At least 1,400 girls were left to be abused by Asian men because the authorities were too scared to admit there was a race issue. Police and council officials in Rotherham suppressed evidence of the crimes because they feared being labelled racist.

1409439184179_wps_5_BEST_QUALITY_AVAILABLE_UnPolice forces across Britain are poised to arrest hundreds of suspected child abusers as part of a massive crackdown on the grooming of vulnerable young girls. ‘Wave after wave’ of arrests will be made between now until Christmas in response to the ‘epidemic’ of child sexual exploitation that has haunted the nation for two decades. Police are confident that the raids will lead to scores of court cases across the country, with suspects facing charges of child abduction, rape, multiple rape and sexual assault.  In Greater Manchester alone, more than 180 suspects are set to be rounded up in an operation described by sources as a ‘day of reckoning’ for men who have tormented girls as young as ten. Raids are also scheduled to take place in the south of England within the next few weeks, with many others set to follow before the end of the year. READ MORE HERE

Boy Scout Internal ‘Perversion Files’ – Child Molesters Named

Since at least 1919, the Boy Scouts of Amer­ica has main­tained “in­eli­gible vo­lun­teer” files in­ten­ded to keep sexu­al ab­users, among oth­ers, out of its ranks. The re­cords have been closely held by the Scouts, which con­tends that con­fid­en­ti­al­ity is es­sen­tial to pro­tect vic­tims, wit­nesses and any­one falsely accused. In all, The Times has re­cords of nearly 5,000 cases dat­ing back as far as 1947, all de­rived from court re­cords. Of those, about 1,900 case files with de­tailed in­form­a­tion about the al­leg­a­tions can be viewed in the data­base. In many of the in­cid­ents de­scribed, no crim­in­al charges were filed, mean­ing the al­leg­a­tions were nev­er heard in crim­in­al court. Case files have vic­tims’ names and identi­fy­ing in­form­a­tion re­dac­ted. READ MORE HERE
