Florida Unlawful Acts Statute

As the investigation continued, another alleged victim came forward to disclose that he had also been sexually involved with Torres. He said that the sex was consensual, but he too was unaware that she had contracted HIV.

Torres was booked into the Osceola County Jail on four counts of unlawful acts. One count for each encounter. Bail in the case was set at $20,000.

Anyone with information or who thinks they may also be a victim is urged to contact the Osceola County Sheriff's Office at 407-348-2222.

Jose Rocha - Arizona Man Charged With Turning On Clothes Dryer With Toddler Inside


Take A Tumble On Jose Rocha's MySpace Profile

Mesa, Arizona (The Weekly Vice) -- Jose Rocha, a 19-year-old Arizona man, was arrested early Thursday morning after he allegedly turned a clothes dryer on while his 1-year-old son tumbled inside.

According to Mesa police, officers responded at around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday night to a family disturbance call.

When police arrived, witnesses told investigators that Rocha turned on a clothes dryer while his 1-year-old son Charlie was inside it.

Witnesses at the scene told police the child had crawled into the dryer, which prompted the child' mother to leave the room in search of a camera. She reportedly thought the moment was cute and decided to take a photo.

Investigators say the mother told them she had just left the room when she heard the dryer turn on, followed by the screams of her son.

Family members told police that Rocha fled the residence after police were called. Investigators took Rocha into custody at about 12:30 a.m. after he had returned to the residence.

Rocha denied turning the dryer on, claiming that he turned the dryer tumbler by hand. Witnesses who heard the dryer activate disagree - comparing the sound to the noise caused when a pair of shoes tumbles in a dryer. Another witness compared the sound to that of a 10-pound sack of potatoes bouncing around.

The child's mother, who is Rocha's girlfriend, told local media that she believes "it's all being misunderstood." She has reversed her previous statement, claiming that she now believes Rocha used his hand to turn the tumbler.

The woman failed to explain how she could have known that if she had left the room as earlier stated. She also failed to explain how a dryer tumbler could be turned by hand, since most dryer models make that task fairly difficult.

Police didn't buy either parent's story, relying on the witness reports, Rocha's fleeing, and the red welts on the child's back to draw a conclusion.

Rocha was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on one county of child abuse. The child was released back into the custody of his mother.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

This gets tiresome. Once more a woman is defending her penis instead of standing up for her abused child. I think she told investigators the truth in the beginning, but began to change her story when she learned Rocha would likely be arrested.

"The kid will heal, but I want my boyfriend back." That's the message I get.

Great parenting mom. Ease up on the Sharpie eyebrows, would ya?

Teacher’s Balls Are Now The Rage. Stability Balls Bounce Into The Classroom


Fort Collins, Colorado (The Weekly Vice) -- If your student's classroom performance has been looking a little flat lately, a Fort Collins teacher claims to have found the answer - and she has the balls to prove it.

Tiffany Miller, a fourth-grade teacher at Bauder Elementary school in Fort Collins, Colorado has implemented a strange idea that she and her students are raving about. She removed her student's hard plastic chairs and replaced them with stability (exercise) balls. It's a move she says has improved her student's performance.

"We know with brain based research that when you are actively sitting, your brain is more engaged. The other reason is the posture is better, which means that there is more blood flow going to your brain," said Miller.

Miller contends that balancing on the ball helps students stay focused and remain engaged - and come to think of it, she has a point. Better posture leads to more alertness for longer periods of time.

That's teacher speak for saying... Clown around too much and you might just end up kissing the carpet. (I'm beginning to like this idea).

Miller points out, however, that a stability ball allows students to move around, which minimizes restlessness and fidgeting. "I am a huge fan of being able to fidget," said Miller.

Miller's idea is not unique. Stability balls are now marketed for educational purposes and have been implemented in classrooms for several years now. Case studies seem to be showing therapeutic value for back pain patients who find relief using the ball instead of a hard work chair.

Perhaps the most convincing testimonial of a stability ball's merits come from the students themselves.

Students usually like using stability balls so well, teachers are able to use them as an incentive for following classroom rules. If the rules aren't followed, a student may be subjected to the hard, plastic, dorky chair their parents once had to sit on...... Yikes.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

So there you have it folks. Kids sitting on balls - and it's all the rage. It sounds crazy I know, but I actually like the idea. I want one now.

Kelly Kidwell - Woman Arrested For Raping 13-Year-Old Boy. Arrest Comes One Month After Using Her Own Child To Shoplift From Store


Cincinnati, Ohio (The Weekly Vice) -- Here's a two-for-one outrage that may have you seeing red. Twice!

Kelly Kidwell, a 31 year old mother was arraigned Thursday morning on charges of having sex with a 13-year-old boy. Investigators say she had had sex with the boy on New Year's Day.

The charges come about a month after Kidwell and her sister, Karen Lienesch, were arrested for shoplifting. Police say the two women entered a Sears store on Glenway Avenue, layered up their children with over $200 in clothing and then attempted to leave without paying.

Police say Lienesch used her 4-year-old daughter to conceal the theft of several clothing items while Kidwell was caught using her two-year-old child to steal other clothing items.

Detectives say Lienesch had $300 in her purse at the time of the attempted theft.

Local media in Cincinnati fawned over the pair, painting the women as downtrodden misfortunates who stole the clothing because they needed to save money for food and rent.

Lienesch was quoted as being "sorry she tried to steal clothing for her kids, but claims she's a struggling mom who was trying to clothe her children."

"I didn't really want to spend [the money in my purse] because I don't have a job and I can't get no income or nothing," said Lienesch.

The media cranked up the drama a little more by interviewing Grandma, who howled about how little the women had because neither of the sisters have jobs.

"They tried to steal because they didn't have the money to put clothes on their kids backs. So they decided to go to the store so their kids look good," Grandma said.

Both women were arrested and then released after posting bond (and I'll get to the bond issue in a minute). Authorities believe the women will likely enter a diversion program instead of facing any jail time for the theft.

Details on Kidwell's child sex charge are still developing.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Well if you haven't noticed yet, I'm frustrated. Here we have a pair of women who walk into a store with the preconceived plan of stealing - and our corrupt media spends half it's time justifying the crime because the women were trying to steal clothing for the children they spawned.

Hello media! The grocery store by my house always needs stockers, and there's a McDonalds on almost every block that needs it's hamburgers bagged up for customers. Our economy is tight, but it's not dead.

There are also countless charity organizations that have bags and bags and bags of donated clothing. Have you been in a Goodwill lately? You'd be amazed at what you can find in those stores sometimes!

Next..... there's the little issue about posting bond that never ceases to amaze me. It's funny how the the media sobs for these poor saps who have "nothing", but the bond always manages to get paid, doesn't it? Same goes for the cartons of cigs and booze that can usually be found waiting at home for more than a few of these folks.

Alas, we find out a month later - long after the sobbing media packed up it's cameras - at least one of these poor souls was "allegedly" busy raping a kid.

And media outlets just can't put their finger on why it's slowly going bankrupt? It's not ALL because of online media sources.

Sobbing media story if you can stomach reading it.

Man Reported Missing For Weeks Found Dead Inside Car......With Seven Parking Tickets Piled On Windshield


Gainesville, Florda (The Weekly Vice) -- Gainsville city officials have had some explaining to do after a man reported missing over two weeks ago was found dead inside his car......a car that was ticket by officers 7 times as it sat unattended.

According to police, authorities became aware of the man’s death when a College Park resident complained Monday about a suspicious vehicle with multiple parking tickets piled on the windshield.

Inside the vehicle, officers found 42-year-old John Waldo.

Waldo, an engineer employed by AvMed, was reported missing on February 11th. He was last seen leaving Calico Jack's Oyster Bar, in Gainesville.

Although the autopsy was inconclusive, coroners have not identified an obvious cause of death. Police also do not believe the death to be a result of foul play, according to Gainesville Police spokesman, Keith Kameg.

Waldo's body was found seated in the backseat of his 2001 BMW 330i.

Gainesville police blamed the vehicle’s dark window tint for the city’s failure to notice a dead man inside the car - even after visiting it seven times to issue tickets.

“Even the person who called this in was not real sure if they had seen him clearly,” said Kameg.

City Spokesman, Bob Woods, joined in the excuse making by pointing out that city workers “are not trained police officers - but work out of the city’s public works department.” Responsibility for issuing parking tickets was transferred from law enforcement to the city’s public works department in January, 2008.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

The Weekly Vice is calling Gainesville city officials out on the carpet on this case. A man is missing for over two weeks while you pile 7 parking tickets on his car? Is anyone else seeing the obvious disconnect here?

Well I'll spell it out for Bob and Keith. The key issue isn't the window tint, it's the failure to handle a missing person's report properly. Those little details are obvious to someone who isn't busy making excuses.

When a person turns up missing, the vehicle they drive is a primary clue in finding them. Missing person cases rely heavily on cops who run routine checks on abandoned cars. Especially one that has 7 parking tickets on it.

Ticketing that car without having the foggiest clue that it belongs to a missing man is inexcusable. It’s not just an oversight, it’s irresponsible government and misappropriated authority.

Had this been a beautiful college girl who was missing, would finding her vehicle have raised an alert?

Every time the city takes over an issue of law enforcement, stupidity is bound to follow.

Donna Greenwell’s Ideas Are For The Birds - Three Arrested In Plot To Trade Two Kids For Pet Cockatoo


Louisiana (The Weekly Vice) -- A Louisiana woman and a couple have been arrested after the woman agreed to sell two children to the couple for $175 and a pet bird.

Donna Greenwell, 53, Paul Romero, 46, and Brandy Romero, 27, were arrested on kidnapping charges after the trio arranged a deal to exchange a 5-year-old boy and 4-year-old girl for the couples pet bird.

Investigators say the shady deal began when Donna Greenwell found a sign at a Louisiana livestock barn advertising the pet cockatoo for $1500. She allegedly contacted the couple and offered to sell two children to them for $2,000. When the couple told her they could not meet that price, she agreed to exchange the children for the bird. She also charged them $175 in “fees” to set up the adoption.

There was, however, no legal adoption in place and the woman did not have legal authority to offer the children for adoption in the first place.Although Greenwell has guardianship of the children, she is not the mother of either child, according to the Evangeline Parish Sheriff’s Office.

Details about how the children came into Greenwell’s care is still murky, however detectives believe she began caring for the children about a year ago at the mother’s request.

Greenwell told investigations that the mother was having a hard time and asked her to babysit the children. She said one month became two months and two months led to a year, according to a detective on the case.

The children’s father, who resides in Leesville, was interviewed by detectives and expressed interest in gaining custody of the children. The children’s mother believed to be residing in Texas reportedly told investigators that she plans to come to Evangeline Parish soon. It is unclear as to whether the state will allow visitation or a custody arrangement with either parent.

Authorities are currently investigating a claim of sexual abuse made by one of the children, but it Greenwell or the Romeros do not appear to be involved with that allegation.

The Romeros were released from jail on a $5,000 bond while Greenwell remains incarcerated on a $100,000 bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Normally, The Weekly Vice has the belief that children are usually better off with their natural parents unless there’s a strong argument as to why they shouldn’t be. This case provides a strong enough argument for me. I believe parental rights should be denied to both these parents who went off to pursue their own problems, leaving these kids behind.

Never mind the allegation of sexual abuse, which doesn’t surprise me a bit, it’s insulting that the mother stated her plans to come “soon”. Hey mom, how about coming right now?

Had I been in the situation, “soon” would not be good enough. I wouldn’t care if I had to ride a bike to Louisiana - I’d be there the next day come hell or high water.

‘Better late than never’ is a phrase that applies well to a lot of things in life, but in this case it’s pathetic and inexcusable.

Chalie Simon Has An Iron Grip - Assaults Ex-Boyfriend’s Groin After Discovering Woman In His Bed




Boulder, Colorado (The Weekly Vice) -- Chalie Simon, a 19-year-old University of Colorado student was arrested Saturday on suspicion of assault after she allegedly assaulted her ex-boyfriend's genitals after suspecting he had another woman in his bedroom.

According to CU police, officers were called to the victim's apartment complex after receiving a report of a domestic disturbance.

Investigators say Simon went to her ex-boyfriend's apartment in the early morning hours of Saturday and began throwing rocks at his window.

When the man opened the door to talk to her, she came into the apartment and allegedly began to create a disturbance. At one point in the confrontation, Simon attempted to make her way to the victim's bedroom, but he blocked her access to the room and then pushed her out of his apartment.

The victim, Joe Donkon, told police that during the physical altercation, Simon "grabbed his testicles and squeezed hard," according to the arrest report.

The struggle continued until the woman apparently gave up and wandered to another area outside the building.

Officers arrived at around 4 a.m., conducted interviews and then took Simon into custody. She was booked into the Boulder County Jail on suspicion of third-degree assault, domestic violence and first-degree criminal trespass.

Donkon told police he had dated Simon on and off over the past year, but that the two had broken up about 20 times. The dispute apparently began when Donkon agreed to contact Simon, but apparently invited a woman over to his apartment instead, according to the report.

The officer did in fact make contact with a woman inside the apartment who was apparently staying with Donkon.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:


Humm... I'm not so sure this guy didn't have it coming on some level. If he wants to jump in the sack with another girl, he shouldn't be agreeing to call her at a certain time. Sounds to me like he was leading her on.

What never ceases to amaze me is.... there are probably a sea of college guys up at that school who'd date her, yet she's hooked on the one guy that isn't that into her.

Drama..... the one thing I don't miss about college life.

Miss North Wildwood 2007 Trades Her Crown For Handcuffs - Arrested On Forgery And Conspiracy Charges


Ashley Fuhmeister MySpace Profile

Ashley Fuhmeister Facebook Profile

North Wildwood, New Jersey (The Weekly Vice) - Miss North Wildwood 2007, Ashley Fuhmeister, went from wearing a crown to handcuffs after she, her mother and mother's friend were arrested on counterfeit/forgery charges.

Authorities arrested former beauty queen Ashley Fuhrmeister, 21, and her mother Kelly Nowasky, 44, Feb 20 on charges of forgery, possession of forgery devices and conspiracy to commit forgery.

After further investigation, authorities arrested John Lauglin Tuesday on charges of forgery and conspiracy to commit forgery.

According to detectives, Nowacky and Fuhrmeister allegedly entered a Wawa convenience store in North Wildwood and made purchases using phony $50 bills. Detectives say the two passed phony bills at another area store as well.

Fuhrmeister was charged and released on her own recognizance, however Nowacky and Laughlin were booked into the Cape May County Jail in lieu of a $15,000 bond. Nowacky was reportedly released the next day after posting bond.

Fuhrmeister topped 8 other contestants in the North Wildwood beauty pageant for 2007. She also achieved inclusion into the National honor Society at Wildwood High School with a 3.75 GPA.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Proof positive a GPA has zero correlation with common sense... Further proof a crown alone can't make a trailer park into a gated community.

I'd like to know why Fuhrmeister wasn't required to post bond. I hope a reporter in the area looks into similar cases in that county's history to see if they other forgery suspects are released so easily. Don't worry, I already know the answer to that question.

Mother And Daughter Turn In Own Grandmother For Growing Pot Plants


Hernando County Jail Intake Booking

Brooksville, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Ida May Wallace, a 60-year-old Brooksville Grandmother was arrested Tuesday after the woman's daughter and granddaughter turned her in for growing pot plants in her back yard.

Hernando County deputies responded to the woman's home after receiving a report of a "verbal disturbance," according to the arrest report.

When officers arrived at the residence, they were met by Wallace, her daughter and her granddaughter who had reportedly been arguing. Deputies interviewed the daughter and granddaughter who both them Wallace was growing pot plants in the backyard.

When the deputy asked Wallace about the alleged plants, she openly admitted to possessing them and offered to show them to the deputy, according to the arrest report. She then lead the deputy to the backyard to reveal 13 marijuana plants ranging from 5" to 14" in size.

Wallace was taken into custody and booked into the Hernando County Jail on a charge of cultivating marijuana.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

Well, here we go again. Our monthly case of family members who are turning in their own parents - and now even their grandparents - for growing a pot plant.

It seems now you can't hardly get kids raised and out on their own before they're back in your shorts, turning you in "for your own good"...

Sigh.

Woman Allegedly Asks 9-Year-Old Boy To Photograph Her Vagina. Tells Investigators It Was for ‘Sex Education’


Raleigh, North Carolina (The Weekly Vice) -- Trecia Annette Hodge, a 36-year-old North Carolina woman was indicted Tuesday on indecent liberties charges after she allegedly coaxed a 9-year-old boy to photograph her vagina.

According to court records, Hodge was arrested earlier this month after the 9-year-old boy told investigators that Hodge asked him to take a picture of her vagina using the woman's cell phone.

During the investigation, the woman initially told detectives that the boy had gotten into her cell phone and saw the photos by mistake. She later changed her story, stating that the boy walked in on her while she was taking the photo.

When faced with the boy's version of the story, the woman finally told investigators that she was simply giving the boy - who she is the guardian of - a little "sex education".

Investigators say the encounter occurred during Christmas break and was reported to a school social worker in January.

Hodge was booked into jail on a charge of indecent liberties with a child. She has since been released on a $15,000 bond.

Agapito Baltazar - Breaks Into Woman’s Apartment, Puts On Her Bra And Panties And Then Waits In Closet To Rape Her


Agapito Baltazar Jail Intake Booking

Boynton Beach, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Agapito Jimenez Baltazar, a 23-year-old Florida man was arrested Tuesday after putting on a womans bra and panties before proceeding to rape her.

According to Palm Beach County Sheriff's deputies, Baltazar broke into a woman's apartment, on January 25, put on her bra and panties and then hid inside the woman's closet until she returned home.

Investigator say the woman returned home around 4:30 a.m. after a girlfriend had dropped her off after an evening out. Upon entering her apartment, the victim heard a noise coming from inside the closet and opened the door to see what as causing it. That's when she encountered Baltazar standing inside her closet wearing a bra and a pair of her panties.

When she asked the intruder who he was and why he was in her home, he allegedly responded by grabbing her from behind and forcing her onto a bed. He proceeded to disrobe, while holding her down.

During the struggle, the woman managed to press the redial button on her cell phone, which dialed the girlfriend who had dropped her off moments earlier. Baltazar grabbed the phone and tossed it aside, but the call was connected - allowing the friend to hear the victim's screams for help. The friend called 911 immediately.

When deputies arrived at the apartment some time later, Baltazar fled the scene by leaping from the woman's third story window. The woman recognized the man as another resident at the apartment complex.

Baltazar, who is reportedly an illegal immigrant, agreed to submit to DNA testing and allowed deputies to photograph him. The woman easily picked him out of a photo line up, according to the arrest report.

Baltazar was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail without bail on charges of sexual assault and burglary with sexual battery.

Florida Man Turned In By Wife After Using A Nanny Cam To Peep On Nude Teen


John Boyd Jail Intake Booking

Jacksonville Beach, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- John Thomas Boyd Jr, a 55-year-old Florida man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly used a hidden camera to record naked video clips of an underage female.

Jacksonville Beach police arrested Boyd after his wife reportedly discovered nude video clips of a female juvenile on his computer and contacted authorities.

Investigators say Boyd purchased an "over the counter nanny cam" which was hidden inside a clock radio. He then allegedly placed the device inside a bathroom which captured images of the the victim while she was nude.

Detectives also seized Boyd's computer which contained more than 60 video clips, according to Sgt. Tom Bingham of the Jacksonville Beach Police Department.

Boyd was booked into the Duval County Jail on one count of video voyeurism. His bond was set at $50,000.

A pre-trial hearing has been set up for Thursday at 9 a.m.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

We can't thank this woman enough. She did the right thing, not necessarily the easy thing. She could have just confronted him in private over it, but she didn't. She knew this situation had to be stopped completely and immediately.

Wife, we just want you to know we appreciate your courage. Thank you for looking out for this girl's dignity - no matter the price. Thank You!

Lisa Lavoie - Missing Teacher And 15 Year Old Student Found In Super 8 Motel


Lisa Lavoie's Facebook Profile

Morgantown, West Virgina (The Weekly Vice) -- Lisa Lavoie, a 24-year-old eighth-grade teacher at Maurice Donahue Elementary School in Holyoke, Massachusetts was caught in a motel after disappearing with a 15-year-old male student.

According to police, Lavoie was captured at a Super 8 motel in Morgantown, W.V., where she was holed up with her student. Both teacher and student disappeared just three days after the boy's parents contacted a school guidance counselor about the alleged relationship back on Feb 13. Both teacher and student were missing for 8 days.

Police say the boy's parents contacted the school after finding an item in the boy's room that tipped them to allegedl relationship. Details about what was found have not been released.

School administrators did not act on the parent's report because it came just one day before school vacation, according to police.

Investigators believe the alleged affair between the two went on for months - and that some of the boy's friends were aware of the relationship.

"We got statements from a lot of people showing that there had been sexual activity between the two," said Police Chief Anthony Scott. "To satisfy the DA's office, we had to jump through a lot of hoops."

Police were able to determine Lavoie's whereabouts by tracking credit card and cell phone activity. A tip led state police to the motel where they found Lavoie's vehicle. There was a brief delay in the arrest because the pair had crossed the state line, requiring a judge in West Virginia to order a warrant for kidnapping.

Lavoie was initially arrested and booked into the North Central Regional Jail on a charge of kidnapping. She was arraigned on that charge by video on Tuesday. She also faces a charge of child enticement once she has been extradited back to Holyoke.

Lavoie's next schedule hearing is set for March 4 in Monongalia County Court in West Virginia. It's still unclear how authorities intend to transfer her back to West Virginia, once she has been extradited back to Holyoke, Mass.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

There's a few outrageous things going on in this case....and you'll likely be hearing more about it.

First of all, there's a big problem with the school. A report was filed, but because it was a day before school vacation, school officials evidently decided that they couldn't be bothered with contacting authorities. The guidance counselor who took the complaint should be fired immediately. He/she has a legal obligation to report. There's no excuse to run off on break without addressing a serious issue like this.

Secondly, the fact that these two crossed the state line shouldn't have created a big delay in the arrest. In the hour or two or three that it takes to get a warrant, a child could be harmed. After all these years, you'd think neighboring states would have issues like that ironed out better.

James Harris Wanted An X-Box. Arrested After Stealing An X-Box And Then Stabbing Two Victims Who Tried To Stop Him


Kansas City, Missouri (The Weekly Vice) -- James S. Harris, an 18-year-old Kansas City man was arrested after allegedly stealing and X-Box and then stabbing two people who insisted he give it back.

According to police, Harris was allegedly attending a house party Sunday afternoon when an X-Box video game console turned up missing.

A dispute ensued between Harris and an unnamed female who suspected that he had stolen the game deck. About that time, a male attempted to intervene in the dispute when he saw that Harris pulled a knife on the woman.

Harris allegedly responded by stabbing the woman, puncturing her liver, and then stabbing the male victim in the hand. Witnesses at the scene jumped in - Delivering a pummeling to Harris' face in "an attempt to subdue him," according to police.

When authorities arrived, they found Harris laying face down on a sidewalk in front of the house. The woman was found bleeding in the backseat of a car. The woman was transported to a hospital where she underwent surgery for a puncture wound to her liver.

The game console was later found in the trunk of Harris' car.

Harris was booked into the Platte County Jail on charges of first-degree assault, second-degree assault, two counts of armed criminal action and theft. He is being held in lieu of a $150,000 bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

At last, someone has figured out how to detain a thief properly until police arrives. I do however think the charge should be attempted murder. Anyone who stabs another person in the abdomen like that (an excruciating experience), shouldn't get away with mere assault charges.

Jazmine And Tatiana Pimped Out Their Classmates - Two 16 Year Old Girls Arrested On Child Prostitution Charges


Phoenix, Arizona (The Weekly Vice) -- Two 16-year-old girls have been arrested on child prostitution charges after they allegedly recruited girls as young as 14 to work as prostitutes.

According to Phoenix Police, Jazmine Finley and Tatiana Tye were arrested earlier this month on child prostitution charges after a nearly five-month investigation. The investigation was conducted during weekend prostitution sweeps that netted more than 50 prostitution, pandering and drug-related arrests.

Investigators believe Finley and Tye were instrumental in recruiting at least 5 girls (aged 14 to 17) to work as prostitutes.

The girls were reportedly responsible for recruiting, teaching and collecting money from the girls who worked under them. They also rented a Phoenix apartment to serve as a brothel for teen sex services.

Finley was arrested on 9 counts of child prostitution, two counts of receiving earnings of a prostitute and one count of pandering. Tye was arrested on one charge of prostitution and three counts of pandering.

Both teens have been charged as adults.

Lori Smith - Woman Arrested On Domestic Violence Charge For Hugging Boyfriend



Lori Smith Jail Intake Booking

Brooksville, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Lori Smith, a 48-year-old Brooksville woman was arrested early Monday morning on battery charges after allegedly hugging her boyfriend.

Since the story summary is really unbelievable, we've included the arrest report with an arrow pointing to the narrative section of the arrest affidavit.

According to the Hernando County Sheriff's office, deputies were summoned to the couple's residence on a domestic battery complaint.

The alleged victim, 50-year-old Kevin Connelly, told deputies that he and his live-in girlfriend had been involved in an altercation that began when his girlfriend attempted to hug him. He also told deputies that She "grabbed him and threw him around the room."

Apparently fed up with Smith's advances, Connelly reportedly pushed his girlfriend onto a bed to get her away from him, according tot he arrest affidavit. Neither Smith or Connelly were injured in the dispute.

The deputy determined that because Connelly did not want to be hugged and Smith persisted in "grabbing" him, that she should be arrested and charged with Domestic Battery.

She was booked into the Hernando County Jail pending a bail hearing on the case.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

This story ranks right up there in our top ten most ridiculous arrests. While I can CERTAINLY see why the boyfriend would want to be hug-free, a a domestic violence charge is a pretty weenie resolution to the problem. We have children being burned, stabbed and beaten which result in the same charge.

Connelly, it's high time you grow a spine and leave if you don't want this woman's affections. Our tax dollars would be most appreciative.

Nixa, Missouri (The Weekly Vice) -- Amy Kay Vogt, a 34-year-old Missouri woman was charged with child molestation Friday after she allegedly molested a nine-year-old boy while another woman watched via webcam.

According to Nixa police and FBI investigators, Vogt molested a 9-year-old boy while conducting a web cam conversation with another woman.

Investigators say Vogt admitted to the crime, explaining in detail what had occurred.

She told detectives that the woman she was communicating with asked to see the boy, who was asleep on a bed near the computer. Vogt allegedly complied and removed the boy's pants and underwear.

When the woman asked Vogt to touch the boy's genitals, she again complied by fondling the boy's penis for about a minute. The alleged molestation stopped when the boy began to wake up, according to the arrest affidavit.

The video exchange is believed to have taken place sometime between January and June of 2008.

Vogt was booked into jail on first-degree child molestation. She has since been released on a $15,000 bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

At first, Vogt appeared to be just a standard issue pedophile, like we profile with regularity here. But looking at all of here online profiles, I'm not so sure this is the case.

I'd say her problem has more to do with being in severe heat..... and having little common sense about right and wrong. Either way, I'd like to know who in their right mind puts a webcam in a kid's bedroom - with a bed right in the background?

Angel Lindle - South Carolina Teacher Charged With Repeatedly Having Sex With 14-Year-Old Boy


Angel Lindle's Facebook Profile

Ninety Six, South Carolina (The Weekly Vice) -- Angel Simmons Lindle, a 37-year-old science teacher at Edgewood Middle School in Ninety Six, South Carolina has been arrested on charges of repeatedly having sex with a 14-year-old student.

According to the Greenwood County Sheriff's Office, Lindle was arrested Friday and charged with seven counts of criminal sexual conduct with a child.

An investigation was launched early Friday after the alleged victim filed a complaint with the Ninety Six Police Department on Thursday. Authorities obtained a warrant, gathered items at the suspects home, conducted interviews and then arrested Lindle at her home at 1:00 Friday afternoon, according to Sheriff tony Davis.

"The victim, who was 14 at the time but is 15 now, told us of numerous incidents between he and the suspect," said Davis.

The Sheriff's Office considers the investigation ongoing, and cautioned against ruling out additional charges.

"During the interview (with Lindle), I think some more information came out for us to follow up on," Davis added.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

The investigation started Friday morning and yet they had her arrested by a little after noon the same day? That's a mighty fast investigation, I have to say. Perhaps a little too fast unless she confessed.

Alicja Sawicki Is A Slow Learner - Jail Inmate Sends Drug Deal Request To Cop By Mistake


Sheboygan, Wisconsin (The Weekly Vice) -- Alicja S. Sawicki, a 20-year-old Wisconsin inmate faces new charges after setting up a drug deal via text messaging. A message that went to the wrong phone.

According to police, Sawicki was temporarily released from jail to attend a rehabilitation meeting when she allegedly sent a message to a friend requesting drugs.

"If Chad can get a bop and meet me at the jail at 8:45, I got the flow," read the message. Investigators say "bop" is street slang for Oxycodone and "Flow" is the term for money.

Unfortunately for Sawicki, Chad never got the first message. The message was instead mistakenly sent to a phone belonging to the wife of a Sheboygan police officer.

Investigators traced the number back to the phone's owner and discovered that it belonged to a woman who was currently incarcerated on fraud charges. It was also learned that she was currently released from jail until 9 p.m. to attend the meeting.

Officers were staking out the jail parking lot when Chad W. Miesner, 20, arrived. Sawicki arrived about 10 minutes later. Both were arrested when Miesner handed Sawicki a hat containing Oxycodone, according to the arrest affidavit.

As the two were handcuffed and marched to the backseat of a patrol car, Sawicki reportedly yelled to Miesner "Chad, don't worry, I will take the hit on this."

Sawicki was charged with felony possession of narcotics while Miesner was charged with felony narcotics delivery.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:

It could just be me, but even the girl's picture is annoying as hell. Thankfully photos don't have sound. As for Miesner, how intelligent do you have to be to drive to a jail parking lot with drugs? If the law doesn't get him, the 80's certainly will.

Joshua Murray - Florida Man Arrested After Assaulting 5-Year-Old Handicapped Girl


Kissimmee, Florida (The Weekly Vice) -- Joshua Murray, an 28-year-old Kissimmee, Florida man was arrested Thursday after smacking a handicapped 5-year-old girl so hard in the face, it left a hand print for days.

According to Osceola County authorities, a school resource officer at Boggy Creek Elementary school noticed bruising on the face of a 5-year-old student who uses a wheel chair. When school officials asked the girl about her injury, she first stated that she had been hit with a soccer ball.

She later came forward to admit she had been struck in the face by a relative who told her to lie about how she received the injury.

The victim was transported to a local hospitals where doctors confirmed the injury as substantial since a red hand print and bruising were clearly visible on the child's face more than 15 hours after it occurred.

A family member told investigators that Murray became upset with the girl and smacked her, but did not think the injury was that severe.

Murray was arrested and booked into the Osceola County Jail on child abuse charges. He has since been released on bond.

The Weekly Vice Opinion:


Have you been around a 5-year-old girl recently? They are usually so frail and tiny - especially a wheelchair bound girl who's limbs have lost muscle tone.

To hit a child this size would easily knock her off her feet. That is if this little girl could stand. But to strike her with such force that it leaves bruises for days?

I don't consider that mere child abuse. Aggravated child abuse, battery and a few other charges should have also been considered here.

Nothing short of neutering this neanderthal would be justice.

Marcia Gaines Knows How To Make An Entrance - Arrested For DUI While Picking Child Up From School


Greenville, South Carolina (The Weekly Vice) -- Imagine the embarrassment. Your mom will be picking you up at your middle school. The bell rings and you head out to the pick-up circle, hoping kids won't tease you about your hair, your car, your mother, or any of the million other things kids tease each other about.

But alas, there is no quick getaway. Instead you walk out to find your mother in the midst of failing a field sobriety test - with a traffic jam of angry parents behind her.

"I wonder who's mom that is," you hear the kids whisper.... and suddenly the finger is pointed at you. It's hell to be a kid sometimes.

Marcia Peyrouse Gaines, a 49-year-old Greenville mother was arrested Wednesday on drunk driving charges while picking up her child at middle school.

According to police, officers responded to Greenville Middle Acadamy Wednesday afternoon on a report of a minor traffic accident in the school pick-up line.

When an officer asked Gaines for her driver's license, she fumbled for it while appearing unsteady on her feet. When she thought she had finally found it, she presented the officer with her credit card instead of her license, according to the arrest report.

Noting the odor of alcohol, the officer conducted a field sobriety test, which Gaines reportedly failed. Gaines later submitted to a blood-alcohol test which resulted in a blood alcohol level of 0.23 - almost three times the legal limit.

Gaines was charged with DUI first offense, punishable by a $400 fine or up to 30 days in jail.
