Cumbrian Man 25, Jailed For Child & Animal Porn

Comments Off on Cumbrian Man 25, Jailed For Child & Animal Porn

“Yet another sexual predator of the worst kind, these malevolent creatures have no thought or feeling for anyone or anything. They certainly have no empathy for little children; so harming animals is of no consequence to them. Many psychiatric reports state, that these depraved minds, start off by abusing animals.  Putting these perverts on the Sexual Register is of course warranted, children need the highest protection there is, nothing is more sacred than the innocence of a child!”

“Of course, animals need protecting too, sentient beings, voiceless, innocent, the perfect victims…they also need protecting from these corrupt & harmful degenerates. It is a well-known fact, the FBI now see the correlation between those who have abused animals, will usually turn to human victims. They probably set out in life on a very rough hard road, perhaps they were even abused themselves! If so, without help, their anger at being humiliated, touched, usually by a family member, stirs so much pent-up anger, that something blow’s; unfortunately animals are usually the closet thing at hand, & they won’t tell, which is perfect; to start with!”

“The poor voiceless animals are perfect to use, the family dog or cat can’t tell anyone! Therefore they are used as sexual instruments, for experimenting on, learning about pain levels & easy way’s to hurt them, without anyone noticing! Before long it becomes a habit, an addiction, but each time the pain they inflict on the animal will be worse than the last. The more fear & hurt they cause the animal, the better the abuser feels; almost empowered, through his own perverse actions, he will release his own anger & vengeful hatred he has of people & the world! It won’t be long before he kill’s an animal & the rush of excitement & adrenalin he get’s from it…means he is at his most dangerous!  

“As the law stands, sadly Animal Abuse Registers are not mandatory in any Country! But I truly believe if they were, certain lives would not have been shattered; the police would have known about offenders & those offenders, knowing they were being watched; would be a great deterrent. Not only that, both the Sex Offenders List & the Animal Abuse Register could be synchronised, therefore flagging up potential names that have been added to both. A mirror image of the Sex offenders list, in fact it could be the Sex offenders list, but called the Animal Abuse Register…all the data would be the same on both registers, name, address, police records etc. but most importantly a picture of the abuser. If the database was shared throughout veterinary offices, animal shelters, anywhere where animals may turn up to be treated or adopted…if incorporated correctly, I’m sure, animal abusers would be caught; & perhaps a child’s life saved. 

The police use the Sex offenders list to keep an eye on would be molesters etc. Why couldn’t the police use the same tactics to catch these degenerates with animals, convict them, give them a taste of Jail…then hopefully the offender would have been saved in time, before they turn to children…who knows! 

“Did you know,  not all vets have to tell the police if they receive an animal they fear has been abused, depends where they live…that’s another area that need’s addressing. I would hope that most vets, out of a sense of duty, would involve the police in any case they were suspicious of!”

“There is absolutely nothing to lose by trying out Animal Abuse Registers. Animal abuse is a proven predictor of violent behaviour. The FBI considers past animal abuse not only as a predictor of human violence, but uses it when profiling serial killers.”  

“One of the most dangerous things that can happen to a child is to kill or torture an animal and get away with it.” -Anthropologist Margaret Mead”

A man who downloaded and stored videos and more than 1,500 indecent images of child and animal pornography featuring “real exploitation of the grossest form” has been sent to prison.

Samuel William Clark, 25, of Salterbeck Drive, Workington, pleaded guilty to all 26 charges, including three of possessing images of the highest severity and two of possessing extreme pornography videos featuring animals.

On June 25 of this year police executed a search warrant and seized a laptop, computer and mobile phone belonging to Clark, as well as a number of storage disks.

They discovered more than 1,500 images that Clark had downloaded from file sharing programmes and internet searches.

Defence barrister Greg Hoare said that Clark downloaded and viewed the images “because he was getting bored” and that he was not aroused by them.

The images included pornography of severity levels one to five of children under 13, severity levels one to five of children under 16, and several videos.

Sentencing, Judge Paul Batty said told Clark: “The material featured exploitation of children, some under the age of five. “Certain people should just be extinguished”

It was real exploitation of the grossest form.

“Unusually, you had gone to the trouble of downloading a considerable amount of it onto disks and that is an added aspect. “He was probably planning to sell them”

“The fact that you were in possession of extreme pornography, the likes of which many people will never have viewed, means I am unable to suspend the prison sentence.”

Clark was sentenced to 12 months in prison, given a sexual prevention order for an indefinite term to prevent him having access to the internet, prohibited from having unsupervised contact with anyone under 16, disqualified from working with children and put on the sex offenders register for 10 years. “Where is the ‘ Not allowed to own animals’??

White Watch: Man Guilty Of Sex With Miniature Horse And Rape, Gets 3 Years In Jail

Comments Off on White Watch: Man Guilty Of Sex With Miniature Horse And Rape, Gets 3 Years In Jail

“WTF…how can anyone be charged with 15 years yet only do 3 when that person has admitted to the heinous offenses? Why did the judge dismiss animal abuse & domestic violence when he admitted to doing it; the women he raped has to live with that all her life! What is it with these plea deals & bargains, just who do they help? certainly not the victims.”

“This man will be out of prison soon, do you think he will be a changed man? I fear not! I think there has to be Animal Abuse Registry’s set up in every state & town, interlinked so people like this can’t get their hands on animals. I also think that bestiality, sodomy, zoophilia should be incorporated into Brommels 5 Freedoms to further protect animals & help gain tougher charges; they have such little protection as it is.”

White Man Guilty Of Sex With Miniature Horse And Rape, Gets 3 Years In JailJust 3 years….

A Wilmer, Ala. man admitted to raping a woman and sexually abusing a miniature horse  on Tuesday in a plea deal that will allow his release in less than two years.

AL.com reports that Eric Steven Easley  was sentenced to three years in prison, but he’s already spent 14 months in jail, meaning with time served, he’ll be out in 22 months. He was technically sentenced to 15 years, but the deal stipulated that all but three of those be suspended.

The site notes that neither Easley, the prosecuting attorney nor judge Joseph “Rusty” Johnston seemed fully satisfied with the plea deal, which the prosecution claimed it offered because there were “legal issues” surrounding Easley’s rape victim.

Easley was arrested  in July 2011 after a woman said he broke into her home, raped her and held her for several hours against her will, according to a previous story by AL.com.

In 2010, deputies in Mobile, Ala. said they found evidence that a miniature horse’s tail had been tied to a post and the horse had been sexually abusedaccording to the Weekly Vice.

Deputies found a wallet with Easley’s driver’s license and Social Security card at the scene.

Judge Johnston dismissed animal cruelty and domestic violence charges as part of the plea deal, but Easley admitted to the charges of rape and killing or disabling livestock

Stiff Sentence Imposed For Man Who Abused Pug

Comments Off on Stiff Sentence Imposed For Man Who Abused Pug

I would hardly call this a stiff sentence, but it’s a start if jail hasn’t been given before...the maximum sentence for animal cruelty is now set at five years…yet this heinous crime only warranted six months prison for Laberge? My god, I dread to think what one has to do to warrant the maximum five years; if these dogs had died from their wounds I doubt it would have been five years. Surely this heartless monster deserved, at the very minimum, one year in jail, along with a life long ban on owning any animals.

MONTREAL—Last August, Geoffrey Laberge’s neighbours heard the sounds of dogs being beaten and abused.

On Friday, a Quebec judge handed Laberge the stiffest sentence ever meted out for animal cruelty in the province.

When police arrived at the corner of Pie-IX and 55th Avenue in 2011, they found one of Laberge’s dogs covered in blood. The three-year-old pug had been stabbed multiple times, beaten with a lead pipe and shards of ceramic were poking through her fur.

This pug-mix suffered trauma to the head, including a number of stab wounds, shards from a broken ceramic plate, and being beaten by an iron pipe.

Laberge, 37, will now spend six months in jail after he pleaded guilty to five counts of animal cruelty. Both the defence and crown recommended a sentence that also forbids him from owning an animal for the next quarter century.

Up until Friday there really was no deterrent effect,” said Alanna Devine, the SPCA’s director of animal advocacy. “Even in egregious cases of animal cruelty when people were found guilty and being sentenced, they  weren’t getting jail time.”

Both dogs have since made a full recovery and have been adopted by new homes. The story of Roo, the abused pug, stood out for Devine.

“It’s difficult for us to not get emotional,” said Devine, who was present when the dog was brought to the SPCA. “One of the dogs was in such a critical state that we felt she needed emergency treatment.”

Roo was rushed to an animal hospital in Notre-Dame-de-Grace where veterinarians were not sure if the dog would survive the night. Devine credited the cooperation of the Montreal police, SPCA and first responders for helping save the dog.

After an amendment to the criminal code in 2008, the maximum sentence for animal cruelty is now set at five years. Devine would like to see the maximum sentence imposed in more egregious cases.

Quebec has had a spotty past prosecuting animal cruelty, with a US-based animal rights group ranking the province the best place to abuse animals for 2010 and 2011.

“This is going to have a deterrent effect going forward that the judicial system in Quebec is starting to take animal cruelty seriously,” said Devine.

UPDATE: Guilty Pleas for Men Charged in Dog Stabbings

Comments Off on UPDATE: Guilty Pleas for Men Charged in Dog Stabbings

“The laws related to crimes like this need to be raised to felony charges! 7 months for their brutal attack is pathetic! When someone has purposefully & intentionally killed an animal without any provocation…what does that say about their state of mind? Will they have forgotten all about it in 7 months…No…likely to do something like this again..YES…but they will make sure they are undetected next time. Look at the anger, the evil in their eye’s…watch out for these names in the future, they have a mean streak, they will offend again!” 

UPDATE 9/13/12 @ 11:20 a.m.
LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) — “This is the meanest act I’ve ever seen,” were the words of Judge Oakley Clark Collins Jr. just before sentencing the two men who pleaded guilty to stabbing and slitting the throats of two dogs.

Jonathan Jiles, 20, of Pedro, and Brian Sharp, 20, of Pedro, pleaded guilty to prohibition concerning companion animals and criminal trespassing during a hearing in Ironton Municipal court Thursday morning.

Each man was sentenced to seven months in the county jail, three years probation and fined $1,200. They must also pay restitution of $800 to the dog’s owner and can’t own a penned animal for three years.

The dog’s owners, Josie and Michael Scythes, found “Bubba” and “Bear” stabbed to death in the front yard of their home in Pedro last month.

Sheriff Lawless says following their arrest, both men admitted to their involvement in the stabbings and said they were drunk at the time. They also said they did not target the owners of the dogs.

Both Jiles and Sharp told the court they were sorry for what they did but the dog’s owner said they wish more could be done in cases like this.

“I just couldn’t believe why they would do something like this. Why they would want to do it. I’m very pleased they got the max the law would allow for such a brutal act. It should be considered a felony,” said Josie Scytes.
UPDATE 8/30/12 @ 9:10 a.m.
LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) – A second person has been arrested in connection with the stabbing deaths of two dogs in Lawrence County, Ohio.

Sheriff Jeff Lawless says Jonathan Jiles, 20, of Pedro, was arrested Wednesday night. Brian Sharp, 20, of Pedro, was arrested Monday night.

Sheriff Lawless says both men admitted to their involvement in the stabbings and said they were drunk at the time. They also said they did not target the owners of the dogs.

The two dogs were found stabbed death in the front yard of a home in Pedro early Saturday morning.

Both men are charged with prohibition concerning companion animals. They are also charged with criminal trespassing.

When it came to choosing a charge, Lawless tells WSAZ.com that “When you have a crime like this, where people have targeted these innocent animals, we wanted to go after them. And as we looked at the statutes that would govern this for the Ohio Revised Code, cruelty to animals is certainly a charge that would stick so we wanted to research to see if there was something that was a little more stringent because we felt like the nature of the crime warranted a little bit more. So we were able to come up with a prohibition concerning companion animals charge.”

The charge is a misdemeanor one, compared to cruelty to animals being a misdemeanor two. The prohibition charge has a stiffer jail punishment.

The men face six months in jail if they are convicted.

ORIGINAL STORY 8/27/12 @ 12:30 p.m.
LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) — A family from Lawrence County, Ohio is offering a $1,000 reward to anyone who can help find the person who stabbed their two dogs to death over the weekend.

Josie Scythes says it happened sometime early Saturday morning outside her home in the 300 block of State Route 373 in Pedro.

She and her husband found their two dogs with multiple stab wounds and their throats slit.

“I just don’t understand what kind of a person could do this to an innocent animal,” Scythes said. “And if they can do this, what’s next? Somebody’s kid?”

Scythes is asking anyone with any information to contact the Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office. If a tip leads to an arrest, she is offering a $1,000 reward.

Activists give judge standing ovation in dogfighting sentencing

Comments Off on Activists give judge standing ovation in dogfighting sentencing

CLEVELAND – Animal rights activists gave a Cuyahoga County judge a standing ovation in court Tuesday morning, following her sentence of a man who took a plea deal in a dogfighting case.

Judge Kathleen Ann Sutula sentenced Collin Rand Jr., 33, to six months in jail, five years community control, and more than $12,000 in fines, restitution and court costs. Rand is never allowed to own a dog.

Collin Rand Jr.

If Rand violates the sentence, the judge said she would send him to prison for more than 12 years.

Rand pleaded guilty to six counts of dogfighting, four counts of cruelty to animals, one count of drug trafficking and one count of carrying a concealed weapon.

Of his six-month jail sentence, Sutula said “it’s a crime in and of itself. If I had the freedom and the discretion, you’d be serving a lot longer sentence, Mr. Rand. Much, much longer. In fact – probably like 27 years. A year for each dog.”

The activists applauded the judge, and said they understood she sentenced Rand to the maximum amount allowed by law. The ovation came when Judge Sutula said in court that Ohio needs stronger laws to protect animals and punish their abusers.

The activists in court support state House Bill 108, which would make animal abuse a felony in Ohio. They wore T-shirts with the phrase “Hope for the 27.”

Police found 27 dogs tied up at Rand’s home on Dec. 22, 2011. The dogs were malnourished and had open wounds and scars. Officers also found a fighting ring and a treadmill with plywood sides to contain the dogs.

In court, it was disclosed some of the dogs had spent their entire lives enclosed in small cages, and their bodies had conformed to the cage walls.

Some dogs needed immediate medical care, and others went to foster homes. Some had to be humanely euthanized.

Vanessa Petrosky is a volunteer long-term foster mom to animals. She told the court nothing could have prepared her for what she saw when she went to see the animals taken from Rand’s home on East 91st Street.

“Cages full – row after row – of barking, shivering, coughing, cowering, quivering… the smell was appalling,” Petrosky said. “It was pure heartbreak, and we were all overcome by tears.”

Rand had claimed he acquired the dogs in the condition they were found in, and that he was trying to find them new homes. He thanked the volunteers for getting the dogs the care and support that they needed.

“I assure them that I will never own a dog again, and that I am very sorry for my actions, and I apologize once again, thank you, your honor,” Rand said.

The judge was incredulous.

“I find your explanations and your statements to be totally incredible,” Judge Sutula said. “They are not worthy of belief. No one with a heart could look at these animals and not get help.

The judge also said Rand’s letter to her in July offended her. The letter stated he needed to serve less time in county jail on the drug count because he had seven children, who are with different women.

Judge Sutula also ordered him to register for child support for all of the children within five days of his release from jail.

“I fear for those children’s lives, and how they are being raised,” Judge Sutula said. “Other people don’t need to support your children. You need to do that.”

During the sentencing, the judge also referenced the stack of letters on her bench.

“I have never received more letters on any case in 21 years as I have on this case,” the judge said. “I have never received such… touching letters on any case. In one way I’m saddened by that because I’ve had many murders and child abuse cases. I wish I had received as many letters on those as I have on this. But certainly, this is an egregious situation.”

Judge Sutula said she has a rescue dog in her home, and was grateful her pet was rescued at a young age.

Daytona police arrest teen accused of abusing pregnant woman, dogs

Comments Off on Daytona police arrest teen accused of abusing pregnant woman, dogs

“This heinous incident happened in July 2012, the public are clearly outraged at this crime! I found a brilliant article written (below the news post), which tackles the question about minors & animal/human abuse.  I personally think, anyone committing such acts at 17 years of age, should be tried as an adult, with younger children from the age of 8 receiving some form of proper punishment. They know at that age & younger the difference between right & wrong! There is also a petition link below, to ensure Poole gets the maximum prison sentence! “

Daytona police arrest teen accused of abusing pregnant woman, dogs

Jarred Scott Poole, 17, was charged Tuesday night with aggravated battery on a pregnant person and felony animal cruelty, spokesman Jimmie Flynt said.

Poole was arguing with Jasmine Adams, 23, on Sunday when he grabbed and drop-kicked her Chihuahua puppy onto North Ridgewood Avenue near Mary McLeod Bethune Boulevard, according to a charging affidavit. Poole then grabbed Adams’ pit bull and threw it into traffic.

Adams retrieved the puppy and put it on the porch at 318 N. Ridgewood Ave., where the pit bull had returned, but Poole grabbed the puppy again and threw it into the median of Ridgewood, according to the affidavit. The pit bull ran after the puppy, but was hit by a truck that didn’t stop and then ran away.

Poole then pinned Adams, who is six to seven months pregnant, against the wall and choked her, police say.

The puppy had to be euthanized due to its injuries, and the pit bull has not been found.

Life-threatening ‘minor’ in Daytona and law’s leniency

 By Ernest Dempsey

There are times when a ‘minor’ can commit a major offense, becoming somebody’s nightmare. The recent incident involving the 17-year-old Jarred Scott Poole’s assault on a woman and her dogs in Daytona, Florida, is such a story, evoking concern and raising questions about whether law should show leniency to minors on basis of their age if found guilty of such crimes.

As the story details, Poole physically attacked the woman and repeatedly threw her dogs in the traffic on the road. This led to one dog’s death, a puppy, as it got fatal injuries on the road while the other dog set in motion by the situation got hit by a vehicle and ran away in fear.

The woman, 23-year old Jasmine Adams, was also attacked and choked by Poole – her being also pregnant. The police arrested Poole but soon let him go, as reported by an animal rights activist who called the Daytona police that arrested Poole after the incident. The activist in question was told by the concerned juvenile detention section that any details could not be released about Poole as he was a minor.

One may choose to ask the question here how arbitrary our definition of adulthood and age is in relation to the special consideration given to minors who are just a year (or perhaps months or weeks) younger than what is officially considered an adult.

A 17-year-old teen as Poole who reportedly has commtted an act of aggression fatal for one family pet and potentially destructive to three other lives – including an unborn child – is clearly as capable of killing as a dangerous criminal who has reached the age of majority.

Such an individual can be a minor but his physical strength and capability of doing significant intentional harm is no less than an adult. So when such a person practically terrorizes somebody, he would be expected to be kept in detention; letting him go so soon may not only be possibly threatening to others but detrimental to the psyche of this teen who gets the message: “cool, it’s safe to hurt people and kill pets!”

In contrast, a dog that gets somebody as slight scratch gets killed for it supposedly poses a threat to the public. How do we justify this self-contradictory status of law relating public safety? An animal that left a scratch or just a small bite on a person will be killed for being a public threat, sometimes without evidence; but a human who does practical harm and threatens and destroys life is left to go free while the case is investigated by the police.

Man gets 30 months in prison for beating dog

Comments Off on Man gets 30 months in prison for beating dog

“I suppose 30 months jail is better than 3 months, although, still not good enough for his heinous crime!  Plus non ownership of pets for 2o years! It will be the non ownership of a pet that will actually save another from being beaten! As for ‘Anger management classes etc. it’s just a waste of tax payers money…I posted a story the other week, were the guy had to have several sessions in anger management, which he duly did…but it wasn’t long before he was abusing dogs again!”

” I don’t believe in second chances for abusers, banning them from keeping, living or working with animals FOR LIFE…is the most inexpensive & effective way, to stop another animal suffering !! Of course having animal registry’s, would also keep tabs on the abusers & possibly serve as a deterrent too! “

A Des Plaines man pleaded guilty today to animal cruelty charges for beating a dog outside his house in June.

James Robert Wesolaski, 51, was sentenced to 30 months prison and ordered not to own a pet or live in a residence with any animal for 20 years.

Des Plaines-Charge: Felony aggravated cruelty to animals

Wesolaski, of the 1100 block of South Wolf Road, entered a guilty plea on felony animal torture and cruelty charges for pinning his small brown dog to the ground in front of his home in early June and punching the dog four or five times as hard as he could, prosecutors said.

After the beating ended, witnesses reported, Wesolaski picked up the limp dog by the scruff of his neck and took it inside, prosecutors said.

Police, called to the home by witnesses, found the dog with swollen, bleeding eyes and broken capillaries, which authorities said indicated the animal had been choked.

They said that Wesolaski told police that he was having a bad day and beat the dog because it got outside. Police took the dog, along with two others inside the home, to Northwest Animal Hospital in Des Plaines, where they were treated. Wesolaski was bleeding from apparent dog bites on his hand and face when officers arrived, authorities said.

Authorities also said Wesolaski’s June arrest violated his probation from an incident earlier this year in which he admitted to trying to wrest a Taser from a police officer.

Wesolaski did not speak during today’s hearing at the Skokie Courthouse other than to say understood the plea deal. He has been jailed since his arrest.

Judge Lauren Edidin told Wesolaski that his 20-year ban on having a pet is “a very serious part of this agreement.”

The judge also advised Wesolaski to get anger-management counseling and treatment for alcohol abuse.

The beaten dog, a Lhasa Apso named Teddy, has made a full recovery. Teddy and Wesolaski’s other two dogs have been adopted into new homes, Cook County prosecutors said.
