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.

Today, in the USA it is ILLEGAL for a woman to be topless in 37 of the 50 states.

n-LINA-ESCO-large300In some places that includes breastfeeding. In less tolerant places like Louisiana, a woman exposing her nipples can carry a sentence of up to three years in jail and a $2,500 fine.

In New York City, in 1992 it became LEGAL for women to be topless in public, but the NYPD continued to arrest women, so we took to the streets with cameras and our cast to fight these Puritanical injustices first hand.

By the end the production, Free The Nipple morphed into a “real life” revolution that transcended the bounds of mere entertainment. Famous graffiti artists, mobs of dedicated women, and celebrities from Miley Cyrus to Liv Tyler and Lena Dunham jumped on board and ignited a national media blitz that has transformed into a powerful movement to Free The Nipple in America.

Man acquitted in bad haircut spat

A Wood Dale man who pointed a BB gun at a barber after a “disappointing” haircut was acquitted Monday of assault and gun charges.

UntitledThere was no proof Anthony Oplinger, 19, knowingly and unlawfully used a BB gun when he pointed it at a Bensenville barber, Judge Thomas Else ruled following a bench trial.

The judge said Oplinger could “easily tell this is a BB gun.”

Barber David Capales testified that about 5 p.m. on Nov. 12, 2013 he was napping in a rear break room of the Barber Lounge, 453 West Irving Park Road in Bensenville, when a customer from earlier in the day woke him up by showing him a gun.

Prosecutors said Oplinger of Wood Dale was a weekly customer for about two years. When he came in for a trim on this day, Capales said he told Oplinger his normal stylist was unavailable and offered to do a trim.

“Throughout the haircut he was telling me how to do my job and how I could change a natural hairline,” Capales said. “Afterward he told me he was displeased with my services and I offered him a refund.”

Capales said a few hours later, Oplinger, dressed in a dark hoodie, sat in a chair facing him with his hand clutching a gun in his lap.

“I was groggy but as I woke up, he said, ‘What’s up bro?'” Capales said. “He was angry.”

Capales said another barber entered the break room after several minutes of hearing their heated discussion and told them to “take it outside.”

Once outside, Capales said, he was able to calm Oplinger down and persuade him to leave.

The shop owner later called police and gave them Oplinger’s name, leading to his arrest.

Capales said he felt “nervous, defenseless and intimidated” by the situation.

David Hooks was shot in the back and head as he was lying face down on the floor during a drug raid by Laurens County deputies.

That’s according to the lawyer representing his family.

635487868933742986-David-HooksIt’s been nearly four months since David Hooks was shot to death during a drug raid at his East Dublin home.

13WMAZ’s Paula Rotondo spoke to his wife, Teresa Hooks and the family’s lawyer, Mitchell Shook.

Hooks died Sept. 24 while deputies served a search warrant at his home.

They were looking for drugs, but didn’t find any.

Shook, who is representing his family, says the raid was illegal and has asked the FBI to investigate.

He says officers were looking for drugs in the home, but didn’t find any. Shook says the officers fired 17 shots inside the home and struck Hooks.

He says Hooks had four wounds, two of which he says are very problematic. Shook says that’s according to the Laurens County EMS records. He says the same information is found in the medical records from Fairview Park Hospital.

“One was to the side of the head, the other, was in his back, the back of his left shoulder, based on the evidence we see, we believe that David Hooks was face down on the ground when he received those last two shots,” says Shook.

Shook says they have not received the autopsy yet from the GBI.

Teresa Hooks, David’s wife, remembers the night clearly.

She says, “Between 10:30 and 11, I turned the light off upstairs. I heard a car coming up the driveway really fast, and I looked up the upstairs window. I saw a black vehicle with no lights. I saw 6 to 8 men, coming around the side of my house, and I panicked. I came running downstairs, yelling for David to wake up. He was in the bedroom asleep, had been for about an hour and a half. When I got downstairs to the bottom of the stairs, he opened the door and he had a gun in his hand, and he said, ‘Who is it?,’ and I said I didn’t know. He stepped back into the bedroom like he was going to grab his pants, but before he could do that, the door was busted down. He came around me, in the hall, into the den, and I was gonna come behind him, but before I could step into the den the shots were fired, and it was over.”

She says, “Initially, I thought that I was going to die, I thought I was going to be shot, I thought a gang had broke in, and up until I heard the radios the dispatch radios, I had no idea.”

Hooks says she sat outside in handcuffs for two hours after her husband was shot to death.

She says during that time, she had to watch her husband on a stretcher without a word from officers about what was going on.

Hooks says she appreciates all of the support from the community.

A Detroit-area postal employee is accused of stealing as many as 2,000 pieces of mail, pocketing any cash and dumping the leftovers along Interstate 94.

635536699348370017-uspsFederal authorities say that Sharon Berrien told them she stole the mail out of boredom. It was mostly greeting cards.

Berrien was charged Monday with stealing mail while working at a Detroit mail processing center.

Investigators say she told them that the thefts began last spring.

The probe started in October when mail was found along Pelham Road and I-94 and given to the Taylor postmaster.

On Nov. 21, 800 pieces were found in Berrien’s trash. Three bags were inside in a closet.

Berrien says she kept $1,000 to $1,500. She didn’t immediately return a phone message seeking comment on the criminal case Monday.

“I was bored,” she told investigators when they asked for the reason she stole the mail. She said she didn’t have any financial problems.

He was more than just a little rattled by yesterday’s earthquake.

20110823-07The naked, knife-wielding madman who stabbed four people in his Washington Heights apartment building yesterday thought the earthquake was the end of the world, witnesses said today.

“He was reacting to the earthquake. He started shouting, ‘The world is going to end! The world is going to end! I don’t want to die!’” said Edwin Rivera, 62, whose 84-year-old mother Isabel was stabbed eight times by the psycho.

Rivera’s mother is in stable condition

Christian Falero, 23, allegedly began knocking on doors around 4:10 p.m. yesterday on the second floor of 870 Riverside Drive and stabbing anyone who answered.

The stabbing spree took place over two hours after the 1:51 p.m. quake.

He injured four victims and killed 81-year-old Ignacio Reyes-Collazo before stabbing himself.

Rivera said Falero was a known drug user.

“He took them on top of all the meds he took,” Rivera said of Falero, who also suffers from mental illness.

Charges are still pending against Falero.

Authorities today said a second victim died, Yigao Chen, 60.
