Franklin met the boy at Sacred Heart School and was able to continue a relationship with him, after she left the school in 2012, by befriending the boy’s parents and becoming his personal, at-home tutor as well as being allowed to spend social time with the boy.
“The parents trusted that she was acting as an adult and doing the proper thing,’” said New Windsor Deputy Police Chief Rick Hovey. After the parents found some text messages revealing Franklin was teaching their son how to put his erect penis into her 44-year-old mouth, they cock-blocked him by notifying police.
Police ended up arresting Franklin, who is married with two teenage children of her own, and charged her with second-degree rape and sexual conduct against a child. Additional charges are expected because Franklin allegedly took the boy to multiple jurisdictions so he could throw his hot dog down her hallway.
“Sexual intercourse, oral sex, this would occur in a car, maybe in a parking lot at various different areas when she was spending time with this person,” said New Windsor Deputy Police Chief Rick Hovey.
The Archdiocese of New York weighed in with a blanket-style statement that’s probably starting to look like a Mad Lib by now:
“The safety and well-being of our students is always our primary concern, and the [Archdiocese of New York and Sacred Heart School] leadership are cooperating fully with local authorities on this case. [Mrs. Lisa Franklin] has not been employed by [Sacred Heart School] as a [substitute teacher] since [the spring of 2012]. Because this is an ongoing police investigation, we are not able to provide any further comment.”
Franklin was released from Orange County Jail after posting $10,000 bail. She was arraigned last Thursday and is due back in court at a later date.
A former pastor of a northwest Indiana mega-church who has admitted having a sexual relationship with an underage parishioner exchanged hundreds of text messages with the girl and told her Jesus Christ sanctioned their relationship, prosecutors say.
The messages are quoted in a memorandum from prosecutors as they argue for a 10-year prison sentence for Jack A. Schaap, who has pleaded guilty to federal charges that he took a minor across state lines with the intent to engage in criminal sexual activity.
The memorandum, filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court in Hammond, details how Schaap, 55, “groomed” the girl into having sex with him while he was pastor at the First Baptist Church of Hammond and was counseling her. The girl had turned 17 when the incidents were happening, according to prosecutors.
Schaap wrote the girl, “You opened your heart wide to me — you made me more than a Pastor/Rescuer — you made me your friend your confidant, your beloved. You gave me your trust, your heart, your love, + your affection,” according to the memo.
Schaap continued that their relationship was sanctioned by God and he referred to their “fantasy talk” during a counseling session. “You have affectionately spoken of being ‘my wife.’ That is exactly what Christ desires for us. He wants to marry us + become eternal lovers!”
Prosecutors and Schaap’s attorney agreed on a plea that would sentence Schaap to 10 years in prison and place him under court supervision for another 10 years on his release.
Schaap served as pastor of the 15,000-member Hammond church and as superintendent of its schools before being fired last summer. He had led the church since 2001.
The girl was sent to him for counseling because she had exhibited “self-destructive” behavior, according to prosecutors, who say Schaap took advantage of his role.
Between June 1 and July 30 Schaap took her to Illinois and to Michigan “with the intent that she engage in sexual activity,” according to court documents.
In the sentencing memorandum, prosecutors said they had recovered photographs of Schaap and the girl taken in his Crete home and at a Michigan summer home. Prosecutors said the two had sex in his office while a youth conference was underway at the church in July 2012.
The two exchanged 637 text messages and 25 telephone calls between June 21 and July 21, prosecutors said.
Schaap was fired from the church after he admitted to adultery and “improper behavior” with the teenager, leading a board of deacons to fire him, church officials said.
Schaap admitted to the relationship but said he was suffering from “extreme stress, exhaustion, depression, burn-out and several other medical maladies.”
He is scheduled to be sentenced on March 20 in U.S. District Court in Hammond.
SANTA FE — A Santa Fe High School teacher has been charged with three felonies following allegations that she sexually assaulted a teenage student.
Jaimie Dominy Page, 25, was arrested Thursday and charged with sexual abuse of a child; having an improper relationship between an educator and a student; and online solicitation of a minor.
Page was booked into the Galveston County Jail on bonds totaling $50,000, authorities said. She posted bond and was released Thursday afternoon, authorities said.
Adam Poole, an assistant district attorney with the Galveston County District Attorney’s Office, said all three charges relate to Page’s relationship with a male student.
Authorities allege Page sent an explicit photograph to the student, who is not being identified because of his age, and had a sexual relationship with him.
Poole said there was an investigation into whether other students had been involved. He said the investigation began after Page was put on administrative leave by the school district in February.
According to jail records, Page was arrested at 2:10 p.m. during a traffic stop on FM 646 near the intersection with I-45.
Page was placed on administrative leave by the Santa Fe Independent School District on Feb. 20 after the school began an investigation into the abuse allegations. According to a statement released by district Wednesday night, Page resigned from the district during the course of an investigation into the allegations.
A former Miami security guard convicted of multiple child pornography charges has been accused of having sex with a teenage girl he met on a vampire website while waiting for his three-year sentence to begin.
Nelson Carrizo, 30, pleaded guilty in October to 10 counts of possession of images showing sexual performance by a child, but was given a court-issued reprieve allowing him to spend the winter holidays at home and surrender after the New Year.
According to police, Carrizo used that time to lure an underage girl to his Surfside apartment for two sexual encounters.
Goth subculture: Carrizo joined the social networking site last February, choosing the user name Sylence and listing ‘sinner’ as his occupation
Court documents cited by Miami Herald state that the 30-year-old convicted sex offender met the victim on a Goth-inspired social networking site called VampireFreaks.com.
On his profile page, Carrizo went by the user name ‘Sylence’ and listed his occupation as ‘sinner.’
Carrizo is currently awaiting trial on two new charges of unlawful sex with a minor, and prosecutors are asking a judge to increase his original sentence from three to 50 years.
The former security guard was originally arrested in March 2009 after police became aware of an email he received possibly containing 63 images of sexual nature depicting little girls.
An arrest report showed that Carrizo admitted to child pornography possession, and a court-ordered psychological evaluation had determined that he would not pose a danger to society if allowed to stay home before the trial.
In October, the 30-year-old pleaded guilty to 10 counts of possession of child pornography, which carries a sentence of 50 years. However, since he was a first-time offender, it was reduced to three years in prison and 10 years’ probation.
Legal woes: Carrizo pleaded guilty in October to 10 counts of child pornography stemming from an email he received containing sexually explicit images depicting kids
Because Carrizo was not convicted of a violent crime, Judge Samantha Ruiz-Cohen allowed him to stay free before his scheduled surrender, but warned him that his plea deal would be voided if he committed another crime.
In early January, just days before Carrizo began serving his sentence, police were called to a local gym after getting reports of a 16-year-old girl who was trying to slash her wrists with her own fingernails.
Predator: Carrizo allegedly convinced his underage paramour to sneak into his apartment on two occasions, and had sex with her as his mother slept in the next room
The teen was taken to a hospital, and investigators soon learned that her parents found explicit text messages and pictures on their daughter’s phone from a man she had met on the site VampireFreaks.com, the paper reported.
The 16-year-old revealed that her first online interaction with Carrizo took place in June 2012, and that he knew her real age.
According to a court search warrant, Carrizo would often ask the girl if she was a cop or a setup. To prove that she was neither, the victim sent the 30-year-old man nude photos of herself.
In December 2012, two months after entering a guilty plea to child pornography charges, Carrizo began urging her to come to Miami and have sex with him, according to court documents.
In early January, the 16-year-old girl drove to Carrizo’s apartment on two occasions to have sex with him.
The teen later recalled that on one of the occasions, Carrizo’s mother, who lives with him, was asleep on the coach when she snuck in.
Carrizo joined VampireFreaks on February 15, 2012. His profile picture depicts the 30-year-old in a mask similar to the one famously worn by the fictional cannibal character Dr Hannibal Lecter in the film Silence of the Lambs.
A quote at the top of his page reads: ‘We enjoy the night, the darkness, where we can do things that aren’t acceptable in the light. Night is when we slake our thirst.’
Carrizo’s long list of ‘likes’ includes Vampirism, bloodplay, demonology, Satanism, biting, anarchism and daytime sleeping, among other related interests.
Under ‘dislikes,’ the 30-year-old suspect wrote the following: ‘religion, christianity in particular, christian extremists, people who USE people, f***ed up people with issues, Racism, and this f***ed up system we call a “Government” whos [sic] soul purpose is to enslave us all..’
The portal, which attracts those interested in the Goth lifestyle, has been under fire in the past in connection to a slew of criminal incidents involving users.
In 2007, 15-year-old Carly Ryan, who was found murdered in South Australia, reportedly met her killers, a father and son, through the website.
A year earlier, a 12-year-old Canadian girl and her 23-year-old boyfriend, both members of the VampireFreaks online community, were arrested and convicted of murdering her parents and eight-year-old brother.
Most recently, in May 2010, a Scottish man, who went by the moniker Master Alucrad (Dracula in reverse) on the site, was charged with exchanging sexually explicit images with a 14-year-old girl.
Carrie Thrall said her daughter, Lexi, is a freshman at Fruita 8-9 School and became the victim of extreme bullying after she gave an anonymous statement to the school’s principle regarding a girl and boy she witnessed snorting drugs in a school bathroom.
The girl allegedly doing drugs in the bathroom found out Lexi was the one who reported her and began threatening her. Lexi and her mother notified school staff about the threats but, according to Thrall, nothing was done until after her daughter was beaten up in the school cafeteria.
A portion of the video was recorded and posted to Youtube, and in it you can see as the 15-year-old girl attack Lexi before Lexi’s younger sibling jumps in to help. Lexi was taken to the emergency room suffering a concussion, swollen face and back injuries.
The teen attacker was suspended (as was Lexi’s younger sister), but Thrall says suspending the attacker isn’t enough. Had the school done it’s job, and taken the threats against her daughter seriously, the cafeteria attack would have never happened.
“I would say that one threat would be reason for suspension. Three suspensions would be an expulsion, rather than having it is an assault and then you get a suspension,” Thrall said. “The threat itself is an act of violence.”
District 51 spokeswoman Christy McGee said that Thrall’s version of events was different to that known by school authorities. “I think parents sometimes have a different understanding of what’s happening with their kids, versus what’s actually being reported to us,” she said.
Regardless, Thrall found a way to keep Lexi’s attacker at bay no matter what the school decides – she filed a restraining order against the attacker. ”The judge was great. He said that regardless of what the school district says, it is an order. This girl is not to come within fifty yards of the school,” said Thrall.
On top of that, the Fruita Police Department is pursuing charges against the 15-year-old attacker. “We sent a juvenile petition to the District Attorney’s office recommending third degree assault charges be filed against her,” Chief Mark Angelo said. ”We all take this very seriously. We don’t want this type of incident occurring in the schools.”
An 18-year-old woman has been accused of raping a 13-year-old boy inside a church.
Hannah Steiner is alleged to have forced the teen to have sex when he asked her to stop after they began touching each other.
Police said the alleged rape took place after a Sunday school meeting and before the worship service at the Skyline Church of Christ in Jackson, Tennessee.
Holy grounds: Hannah Steiner, 18, is charged with one count of rape and two counts of statutory rape after allegedly raping a 13-year-old boy
Steiner and the teen are alleged to have been touching each other when the boy said things had gone far enough and he wanted to stop.
According to an arrest report the teen tried to stop, but Steiner forced him to have sex.
The alleged rape took place in a room at the church.
After being arrested Steiner, a high school student, allegedly told police she had consensual sex with the boy.
Escalated: Steiner said that it was at this Jackson, Tennessee church that she and the boy began inappropriately touching one another before he asked to stop
Steiner, from Jackson, was charged with rape and two counts of statutory rape.
She was released on $5,000 bond and a preliminary hearing was set for March 7th.
US teens ‘had three-way sex on corpses of men they lured to their house, strangled to death and hog-tied’
Joshua Miner, 24, piled the bodies of Eric Glover and Terrence Rankins, both 22, together and placed a beige sheet across them so he and his longtime girlfriend, Alisa Massaro, could lie together on top of them at Massaro’s home in Joliet, Illinois, according to police reports.
Miner told police he remembered ‘years back’ that Massaro had told him she ‘wanted to have sex with a dead guy,’ so he hoped to fulfill part of her fantasy, according to documents.
Adam Landerman, the 19-year-old son of a police sergeant, may have joined Massaro and Miner’s sexual romp, as well, the report says.
Patch.com released the revolting new details today in the shocking January 10 murders – allegedly committed by Miner, Landerman, Massaro and 18-year-old Bethany McKee.
Massaro grinned when her boyfriend asked her to have sex and initially declined. Later, though, she admitted that she agreed to it.
McKee told police that she believes Landerman joined the sexual acts, as well.
McKee said Miner was the ringleader who came up with the idea who kill Glover and Rankins. She said Landerman was a ‘follower’ who only did what Miner told him, according to the report.
After killing the men, Landerman jumped on their backs and ‘surfed’ on their dead bodies, according to reports.

They then hog-tied the victims’ hands and feet together with dirty clothes and and an electrical cord.
‘This is one of the most brutal, heinous and upsetting things I’ve ever seen in my 27 years of law enforcement,’ Police Chief Mike Trafton said after the January slayings.
‘Not only the crime scene, but the disregard for common decency toward human beings.’
Police reports say McKee knew Rankins and invited him and Glover over with promises of sexual favors.
Miner later admitted that they four believed the men had carried ‘lot of money’ and that they were planning to rob them. They believed Rankins was a drug dealer and carried $100 with him.
‘It’s demonic,’ Rankins’ mother, Jamille Kent, said.
‘This is evil.’
Trafton, the police chief, said Massaro, Landerman and Miner were ‘very much surprised’ when police walked in on them Thursday. McKee had left the house but police arrested her later in nearby Kankakee.
Rankin’s mother said her son and Glover had been friends for five years.
Family members said they called police on Januaury 10 after they hadn’t heard from the two since Wednesday.
‘It’s just senseless,’ Glover’s mother Nicole Jones said.
‘It’s hard for me to say the words.’
The circumstances surrounding the death are still under investigation, but some local reports suggest that drugs may have been involved.
Victims: Eric Glover, left, and Terrence Rankins, right, had been friends for five years and their dead bodies were found in the same Joliet house with signs that they had been strangled and attempted to be dismembered
Glover graduated from Joliet Central High School and had made the honor roll and participated in football, wrestling and track, his family said.
Rankins, described as ‘a very outgoing, loving, fun person’ by his mother, graduated from Joliet West High School.
Massaro’s father, Phillip Massaro, told The Herald-News in Joliet that he was in disbelief.
‘All I can say is it’s a terrible thing that happened, and I can’t believe my daughter had anything to do with it,’ he said.
‘I don’t know what happened. I just don’t know what to say. I can’t really talk about it. I’m too devastated, and I can’t talk about it.’
Massaro’s lawyer, George Lenard, did not immediately return phone calls to The Associated Press for comment Monday. Charles Bretz, attorney for McKee, declined comment.
Public defenders for Landerman and Miner could not be reached. No one answered the phone at the public defender’s office in Will County.
Miner’s mother, Melodie Miner, told The Herald-News that ‘there’s no way my son can do this.’
Miner previously was convicted of residential burglary, according to the newspaper.
Charles Pelkie, spokesman for the Will County State’s Attorney’s office, said State’s Attorney James Glasgow will personally prosecute the case, as he did former police officer Drew Peterson’s.
Jurors convicted Peterson in September of first-degree murder in the 2004 drowning death of his third wife.
Pelkie would not discuss any details about the investigation in the Joliet slayings, but he did address the issue of race.
While the two victims were black and the four suspects are white, Pelkie said there is no information at this point that indicates race was a factor in the killings of Glover and Rankins.
Teens ‘had three-way sex on corpses of men they lured to their house, strangled to death and hog-tied’
Alisa Massaro, 18, (center left) who allegedly has a neophilia fetish admitted to having sex with her boyfriend Joshua Miner, 24, (lower left) on top of the bodies of Eric Glover (top right) and Terrence Rankins (lower right), both 22. Adam Landerman (top left), the 19-year-old son of a police sergeant, may have joined Massaro and Miner’s sexual romp, as well, police say
The girl told police that she was just “goofing around” when she stabbed a boy in the back with a pocket knife, and did not mean to hurt him as bad as she did. She said she and the victim were in the playground of the school when the boy stole her bag of potato chips.
She says she jokingly told the boy she was going to poke him with the pocketknife, then ran up behind him and stabbed him once in the back. “She said it infuriated her,” Assistant Sheriff Dave Putnam. “But she also said that she didn’t intend to cause the damage she did. She just meant to poke him with it.”
The girl told police that the pocket knife, which had a blade well over three inches long, wasn’t hers, she was just holding it for a friend. The boy was taken to Adventist Medical in Hanford then flown to Community Regional Medical Center for further treatment because of the severity of the wound. No word on his current condition, but they are not believed to be life threatening.
School officials said they have addressed the students over the incident and have talked to them about resolving conflicts without violence. They also added they feel the campus is safe. “I’ve been in the district 14 years,” said superintendent Steve Bogan. “We’ve never had an incident like this.”
The girl has been booked into Kings County juvenile hall for assault with a deadly weapon and may be expelled from school. Police are continuing their investigation as they say there are inconsistencies with the teen’s story.
For the third time in the past couple of weeks, there’s a fuss over a high school prom in the nation, according to CBS News. The most recent headache for school administrators crept up on Saturday when news broke that a cross-dressing Texas teen wanted to go as “Sally” instead of “Harry” and the assistant principal said “no.”
There was a time, decades ago when prom night was predictably boring. Prior to the event, Harry asked Sally to go, and the only news was when Sally wore something cut too low, too high, or when she dumped Harry at the last minute to go with a hunkier date.
The times, they are a-changin’. In this day and age, the pre-prom gossip comes in the form of “Harry” wanting to go as “Sally”, or “Harry” wanting to go with “Richie” instead of “Sally” – which is not of concern because quite often “Sally” would rather go with “Mary” anyway.
Specifically, Tony Zamazal, a senior at Spring High School outside of Houston, reportedly feels more comfortable in women’s clothing and wants to wear a blond wig, a red dress, and black heels to the prom. The assistant principal won’t have it. Yet, Zamazal can appeal the assistant principal’s decision to the principal. So far, the young man has not appealed – yet.
In the past couple of weeks there was a case where a superintendent of a southeast Missouri high school initially had a problem with a young male bringing his boyfriend to the prom – but the superintendent had a change of heart after legal action was threatened. Another case involved an Indiana high school in which parents and students tried to raise money for a private prom that would ban gay students from attending.
Of course, it is only February. Therefore, unlike the boring prom night stories of the past, there may be a parade of other prom night stories to follow for the spring of 2013.
