CHILD RAPISTS 101
HARVEY — An Oskaloosa man was charged with two felonies in connection with a sexual assault case.
Clinton Randal Robbins, 64, of Oskaloosa, was charged with two counts of second degree sexual abuse, both class B felonies; indecent contact with a child, an aggravated misdemeanor; and indecent exposure, a serious misdemeanor.
According to court filings from the Marion County Sheriff’s Office, Robbins is accused of sexually abusing a child under the age of 12. The charges stem from an incident in March. After investigating, authorities uncovered information on previous assaults, with unknown dates in 2016.
Authorities say all incident took place in the home of the victim.
Robbins was arrested by the sheriff’s office Thursday, April 20. His bond was set at $150,000 cash or surety.
A child abuser has been jailed for 15 years in his absence after trying to commit suicide on the night before his sentence.
Former lorry driver David Miltonruined the lives of two young girls by sexually assaulting them in the 1970s and 1980s and leaving them with lifelong psychological scarring.
He abused one girl for seven years from the age of four and she was so young and innocent she did not realise it was wrong until she went to sex education lessons as school.
Milton, aged 77, was found guilty of 12 offences of indecency by a jury at Exeter Crown Court on Monday and took an overdose of anti depressants after being given bail pending sentence on Tuesday.
Judge Erik Salomonsen jailed him for 15 years in his absence so he can be taken straight from hospital to prison without having another chance to harm himself.
Milton, of Howards Way, Newton Abbot, denies but was found guilty of eleven offences of indecency against one girl and one of indecency against the second.
Addressing an empty dock, Judge Salomonsen told Milton:"I have heard powerful evidence from the first victim about the profound effect this offending has had on her life.
"She described herself as not being the person she was supposed to have been. The second victim was a vulnerable child who you assaulted when she was 15.
"I am mindful you have made an attempt to take your own life in the last 24 hours. I say nothing about why you did that or whether it was a serious attempt."
During a week-long case Mr Andrew Macfarlane, prosecuting, said Milton was living in an estate near Newton Abbot when he carried out the offences in the 1970s and 1980s.
He said Milton had an insatiable appetite for young children and no inhibitions at all. He brainwashed the victims and assaulted the younger girl while babysitting.
He told both girls to keep what he was doing secret and threatened them they would be taken into care if they told anyone what he was doing.
He read parts of the victim statement from the younger girl, who believes Milton's suicide attempt was part of his selfish and controlling behaviour.
The girl said:"He took everything that I had away to the extent I would not go near anyone and did not like to be touched by anyone, male or female. I can still remember his smell and feel. He has ruined my life."
Milton denied all the allegations and said they were all untrue.
Mr Rupert Taylor, defending, said Milton had lived an otherwise blameless life and his age and ill health will make any jail sentence particularly difficult to cope with.
Child welfare campaigners have praised the bravery of the two victims whose evidence led to their abuser being brought to justice after four decades.
After the trial a spokesman for the NSPCC in the South West welcomed the outcome and praised the courage of the victims.
He said: "Abuse ruins childhoods. These horrendous offences, carried out over a number of years, caused Milton's two victims an enormous amount of distress both at the time they took place and ever since.
"With the attacks taking place decades ago, Milton may have thought he had got away with them but, thanks to the bravery his victims have shown in coming forward and giving evidence, justice has finally been served.
"It is absolutely right that people who suffered child sexual abuse feel confident their voices will be heard, no matter how much time has passed since their ordeal."

ELKO – An Elko man entered a plea agreement on reduced charges of child sexual abuse that took place almost five years ago.
Ricky Lynn Minchew, 29, appeared with his defense attorney, Richard Davies, before District Judge Nancy Porter on Tuesday and pleaded no contest to three counts of sexual abuse or neglect of a child under 14 years of age, which are category B felonies.
Minchew was originally charged with five counts of sexual assault on a child under 14 years of age, lewdness with a child under 14 years of age, and child abuse, according to court documents.
According to District Attorney Chad Thompson, the abuse took place between May 1, 2012 and Sept. 17, 2013.
Under the plea agreement, Minchew could serve a maximum of six years in prison on each count, said Thompson.
“He would be eligible for probation as long as he has a psychosexual evaluation … that can determine whether or not he is eligible,” said Thompson.
In reviewing the charges, Porter explained that the evaluation, once completed, determines if Minchew is at high risk to re-offend, adding that he would also have to register as a sex offender.
CALDWELL, ID - A Caldwell man has been booked into the Canyon County Jail, facing two felony sex crime charges after police say he had sexual relations with a minor over a four-year period.
Radames Rayo Ruiz, also known as “Ray,” was charged with sexual abuse of a minor under the age 16 and lewd conduct with a child under the age of 16.
According to court documents, Ruiz had “sexual intercourse with (the victim) multiple times between 2012-2016.”
The female victim disclosed the abuse to aCARES (Children at Risk Evaluation Services) official on October 4 of last year. The abuse reportedly began when the victim was an elementary school student living in Nyssa.
The girl and Ruiz knew each other.
Court documents detail at least two occasions where the suspect reportedly abused the victim at his home.
Investigators learned “... on the weekends, (the suspect had) sex with her at least once and, during the week-long (school) breaks, he (would have) sex with her 2-3 times.”
One report said Ruiz would call the girl into a bedroom, then close the door and lock it, before sexually abusing her.
Police say the crimes happened at the suspect’s homes both in Nyssa and, later, in Caldwell.
When questioned by police, Ruiz stated the victim “is a compulsive liar,” and denied ever having sex with her. Ruiz contended a woman he had had a relationship with had relayed details about their sex life to the victim. However, the woman told police “she never once told (the victim) details about her sex life with Ray.”
