Starla McCabe Accused Of Selling Nude Photos Of Her 5-Year-Old Daughter


A mother with a history of drug abuse is accused of taking and selling nude photos of her grade school-aged child.

1453351Starla Rae McCabe, 45, of Perry, was charged Dec. 4 in 1st District Court with 10 counts of sexual exploitation of a minor, a second-degree felony.

In March, a relative discovered nude photographs of the child on the child’s Nintendo DSI, according to a search warrant affidavit. Three days later, the child was interviewed by the Division of Child and Family Services and told a caseworker that McCabe had taken “loads” of pictures of the child “without any clothes on,” the affidavit states.

The child told investigators that the “mother would then show the pictures to men,” according to the affidavit. The child also said the mother “printed the pictures and sold them to people for $100,” another court document states.

The Nintendo was turned over to the Garland City Police Department, which turned it over to the Box Elder County Sheriff’s Office in November. A total of 19 pornographic pictures were found on the Nintendo, police said.

McCabe was interviewed by detectives on Nov. 26. She told investigators she took pictures of her child’s genitals to show the child “what it looks like,” then declined to answer other questions about the photos, a detective wrote.

According to court records, she pleaded guilty in April to drug possession, a third-degree felony, attempted child endangerment and possession of drug paraphernalia.

In May, McCabe was given a suspended prison sentenced and placed on 36 months of probation. As part of her probation she was ordered to undergo drug addiction treatment.

In that case, the Box Elder County Sheriff’s Office served a search warrant on McCabe’s residence in Garland and found “a complete drug kit, including syringes and meth” in the bathroom, according to a probable cause statement filed in 1st District Court.

Meth was also located in a drawer of a computer stand in the living room, according to court documents. A child was found sleeping on a couch next to the stand. It was not known if it was the same child who is the alleged victim in the current sexual exploitation case.

After her arrest on the new charges, a judge found her in violation of her probation and ordered her held in the Box Elder County Jail pending her next hearing.

McCabe also pleaded guilty to two counts of attempted endangerment of a child or elderly adult and possession of drug paraphernalia in 2010. She was ordered at that time to complete drug and mental health treatment. Six months after she was sentenced, McCabe was found to be in violation of her probation, according to court records.

In 2009, a man took out a protective order against McCabe for an undisclosed reason, according to court records. In 2006, she was convicted of child abuse and placed on 36 months probation and ordered to undergo random drug testing as well as complete drug and mental health treatment. McCabe was also ordered to complete a parenting class. Six months later she was found to be in violation of her probation.

Cannibal mum tries to EAT her own baby shortly after giving birth



Shocked medics have described the moment they found a mum apparently trying to EAT her baby days after he was born.

A nurse found the woman, named locally as 24-year-old Li Zhenghua, with her jaws clamped firmly around the infant’s arm.

She raised the alarm and tried to pull the baby free, but the mum refused to let go.

Doctors were forced to use an implement to prize her off the child before administering a sedative.

The shocking cannibalistic attack happened at a hospital in the city of Shenzhen in southern China’s Guangdong Province, where the woman had been discovered heavily pregnant and in labour on the street.

She had been taken into the hospital and had given birth, and then placed in a ward where attempts had been made to contact her family as she was left to nurse the child.

However on the woman’s third day in hospital, nurse Liu Tianlun had gone into the bedroom to find the young mother biting her son on the arm.

A hospital spokesman said: “It was really shocking, the arm was badly damaged and suffered not only heavy bruising but bleeding as a result of the bite.

“Fortunately, doctors managed to insert something to stop her closing her teeth and then levered her jaws apart.

“After that they gave her a sedative and took the baby to a secure location.”

Police said the woman had been identified as 24-year-old Li Zhenghua.

They said enquiries had found that, despite being pregnant, her mother-in-law had thrown her out on the street after Li started behaving oddly.

The family did not alert anybody that Li was pregnant and might be in need of help.

She had apparently survived on the streets for at the very least several weeks and possibly longer before she was spotted in labour and the alarm was raised.

An investigation is now going on to decide what prompted the woman’s actions and whether the child should be taken into the care of the authorities.

Jessica Bell Gets 7 Years For Child Porn Involving Herself And Toddler Son


A 25-year-old woman was sentenced Tuesday to seven years in prison for possession of child pornography — videos she made of herself engaging in sexual conduct with her own toddler son.

Jessica-BellEven the judge — a former prosecutor and veteran of the felony division bench — seemed shocked.

“This behavior is contrary to the laws of nature,” Milwaukee County Circuit Judge Stephanie Rothstein said.

The sentencing hearing offered a sad synopsis of the story of Jessica Bell.

Adopted by a couple in Washington state, she grew up with love and support, a large extended family, good schools and a comfortable life.

But a learning disability led to struggles in school. She graduated from high school, got pregnant, married and moved to the South.

Her mother, who traveled from Washington to speak at the sentencing, said her daughter seemed happy and told her, “All I ever wanted was to be a mom.”

But a short time later, the marriage soured, and Bell’s husband walked out on them.

That’s when Bell began reaching out to her biological family, which brought her to Wisconsin.

She moved to Racine to be with her half-brother, Justin Surber, and began working for the state Department of Corrections.

It was during this time Bell made the videos, but then became uncomfortable with Surber’s influence and asked her mother to take her son. She then left Racine herself and moved to Oak Creek.

Surber told Bell’s new boyfriend to check Bell’s computer. When he did, he found hundreds of emails between Bell and Surber, many discussing sexual topics involving the boy.

The new boyfriend then found the videos and called police. Bell was arrested and charged in the fall of 2013.

Her attorney, Mary Scholle, said Bell never put the video on the Internet or shared it with anyone but Surber, who is charged with incest for his relationship with Bell and has a trial set for February.

Bell cried throughout the hearing. When it was her turn to speak, she said, “I want to tell my baby how sorry I am,” and that she should have protected him better.

Rothstein noted that while Bell seemed to blame Surber, he was not present when she made the videos with her son, on multiple occasions.

“There is no coercion defense,” the judge said, observing that to her, Bell had yet to fully accept responsibility for her acts.

The boy’s age aggravated the offense, Rothstein said, because he was too young to escape or even verbalize to someone else what his mother was doing.

She said the boy may be lucky to not recall the events later in life, but he will have certainly lost his mother.

The boy, now about 4, is being raised by relatives in another state and has a different last name than his mother.

Rothstein ordered Bell to have no contact with the boy, by any means or via third parties, for 17 years, regardless of actions by any other courts. Bell also will be on the state sex offender registry for life.

Bell still faces 10 felony counts in Racine County.

She is scheduled to enter guilty pleas in that case in January.

Woman Cut Off Three-Year-Old Nephew’s Penis Because He Wanted To Use Her Phone


A woman cut off her three-year-old nephew’s penis after flying into a rage because he walked in on her using the toilet.

ad_152072645-e1416311800403Xue Paan, 37, now faces jail time following her sadistic punishment of her nephew Qiang Qiang, who she was looking after while his mother visited a neighbour in the Henan Province in central China.

Xue was reportedly using her phone on the toilet when the toddler walked in and asked if he could play a game on the device.

She was so angered by this that she took a blunt kitchen knife and cut his penis off with it, then fled the house before her sister, Qiang’s mother, returned.

Mother Cai Tuan, 27, immediately ran back to the house after hearing her child scream.

‘Qiang Qiang had fainted and was lying in a pool of blood. Next to him was a knife and his penis. It was simply horrific,’ she said.

The boy’s parents rushed him to a hospital where surgeons were able to reattach the appendage, before transporting him to a specialist clinic in Beijing.

A hospital spokesman said the knife was ‘quite blunt and the cut wasn’t clean so although we reattached the boy’s penis, it wasn’t ideal and he had to have further treatment’.

Following three surgeries in total, hospital workers are now confident the young boy’s penis will work properly and he should suffer only minor side effects from the attack.

His aunt was tracked down and arrested, and police say she now faces five years in prison for the horrific attack.

There’s drunk, and then there’s “passed out at an intersection with three kids in the car” drunk


A Lufkin Police officer arrested a 23-year-old woman after she allegedly drove drunk with three small children and passed out behind the wheel at the intersection of West Frank Avenue and Gaslight Boulevard early Sunday morning.

5540563_GBrenda Mabel Velasquez, of Lufkin, is still being held in the Angelina County jail on a state-jail felony charge of driving while intoxicated with a child under the age of 15 in the car and two misdemeanor traffic charges. Collectively, bail was set at $1,000 for the two misdemeanor charges. No bail has been set for the DWI with a child charge.

According to the narrative of a of the police report, an LPD officer was patrolling the area of West Frank Avenue and Gaslight Boulevard at approximately 4:30 a.m. Sunday morning when he noticed a black Nissan Xterra sitting in the turn lane at the intersection of West Frank Avenue and Gaslight Boulevard.

About 10 to 15 minutes later the officer came back through the area, and saw the same car with its brake lights on sitting in the intersection.

When the officer approached the vehicle, he observed that the driver, who was later identified as Velasquez was passed out behind the wheel, the police report stated. He also noticed vomit on the ground and down the side of the driver’s side door.

Another officer in the area came to the scene to assist, and parked his patrol unit in front of the Xterra with its grill guard ready to stop Velasquez if she woke up and panicked. The report said that the SUV was still running and in drive gear. The only thing that kept the Xterra from moving was the fact that Velasquez had her foot on the brake pedal.

Three small children were asleep in the back seat, according to the police report.

“There was an open Bud Light beer bottle in the driver cup holder,” the police report stated. “The driver was covered in vomit.”

After opening the passenger’s side door, the first LPD officer on the scene managed to put the SUV in park. The second officer reached through the driver’s side door and removed the keys from the Xterra’s ignition.

According to the police report, Velasquez still hadn’t woken up at that point. One of the officers shouted at Velasquez in an effort to wake her up, but she didn’t start to wake up until he shook her.

The police report stated that Velasquez was so intoxicated that she had trouble releasing the lap and shoulder straps of her safety belt. Velasquez allegedly failed several field sobriety tests.

The police report stated that Velasquez vomited again in the back of the of the patrol unit.
