CHILD RAPISTS 88

A West Palm Beach-area man accused of sexually abusing a child for more than a decade was arrested on multiple assault charges.
The child, now a teenager, spoke to Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office officials in June about the escalating abuse that began when the child was 4.
Felicito Soto Arocho admitted to “touching (the child) everywhere” and raping the minor multiple times, sheriff’s office records state, although he blamed the child for initiating the contact.
The age of sexual consent in Florida is 18. No one under the age of 16 can give consent under any circumstances, according to Florida statutes.
Soto Arocho, 62, is being held without bond in the Palm Beach County Jail on three counts of sexual assault of a minor. Records indicate Soto Arocho has either a familial or custodial relationship with the child. An arrest report indicates he lived with the child off and on during the abuse. He told officials in February he no longer lives with the child and now resides just outside the West Palm Beach city limits with his wife and son.
The first incident of abuse the child recalls was at age 4. The child told sheriff’s office detectives that Soto Arocho’s first touch was with a towel after a dip in the pool. He slowed to caress the child’s face and buttocks, the now-teenager said.
When the child was about 6, Soto Arocho reportedly kissed and hugged the child inappropriately. The kissing and inappropriate touching continued throughout the child’s elementary school years. When the child was about 11, Soto Arocho forced the child to touch his genitals, records state.
When the child was in the eighth grade, Soto Arocho raped the child, according to sheriff’s office records. He admitted to raping the child multiple times, at least twice while he was drunk. The report indicates the abuse continued until the child was 14.
A medical examination indicated the teen has clear signs of physical abuse and evidence of a sexually transmitted disease.

    A fugitive child rapist, aged 81, has been sighted in Manchester city centre.
    John Gilbert Blacktop, a former choirmaster and church organist, skipped court and was sentenced in his absence to 21 years behind bars for a string of historic sex crimes, including raping five young girls.
    Now he’s been spotted on Oxford Road in the city centre - and police are appealing for help from the public in Manchester to catch him.
    Blacktop was on trial at Bradford Crown Court but failed to turn up at an afternoon hearing last Wednesday.
    Lancashire Police said he was on bail during the trial and had denied 36 separate sex offences - 33 counts of indecent assault, two counts of rape and a single count of attempted rape.
    He was convicted by a jury and sentenced to the 21-year prison term in his absence.
    Police confirmed Blacktop is now classed as a wanted man and have released his photograph as part of a public appeal for information.
    Blacktop’s offending took place in Lancaster and Stockton-on-Tees in the 1960s and 70s, Lancashire Police said. The force said his victims were five young girls who were aged between five and 14 at the time.
    It’s understood that now adults, they gave evidence against him at the trial, reliving their horrific experiences at his hands all over again.
    Blacktop, of Marine Road West, Morecambe, was sighted walking with a large green suitcase on Oxford Road at 11am on Friday morning.
    No further details of his movements have been revealed, but it’s understood that investigating officers are checking CCTV cameras and liaising with Greater Manchester Police detectives.
    Anyone with information should call police on 101 and ask for Lancashire Constabulary quoting log number 0873 of March 29.
    A former Nevada County man on probation for a child sex crime had new accusations filed against him this month alleging the sexual abuse of a different minor, court documents state.
    Kenneth Alan Byrnes, 69, is charged with three counts of lewd act upon a child and one count of continuous sexual abuse, all felonies, records state.
    Arrested in Sacramento County and taken to that jail, Byrnes was expected to be booked Friday in the Nevada County Jail. His arraignment is scheduled for Monday, District Attorney Cliff Newell said.
    According to court documents, Byrnes inappropriately touched a child under 14 years old between October 1997 and October 2001. Newell said authorities learned months ago about the new allegations when the victim came forward.
    The three counts of lewd act upon a child allege Byrnes touched the minor three separate times — a number that led to the fourth charge of continuous sexual abuse.
    This month's accusation is the second time in under a decade Byrnes has faced child sex accusations in Nevada County.
    Byrnes pleaded no contest in 2011 to continual sexual abuse of a child. Authorities alleged he touched a minor under 14 years old between 2005 and 2009.
    Newell said authorities didn't know about the most recent accusations in 2011, when Byrnes was sentenced to 12 years' probation and received credit for 570 days in jail.
    Prosecutors wanted jail time in that first case. A doctor, as well as the victim, urged the judge against prison time.
    "We view this as a prison-only resolution type of case," Newell said of the recent allegations.
    DOVER, Tenn. — A 62-year-old Dover man faces a minimum of 25 years in prison after a jury five women and seven men convicted him of child rape and aggravated sexual battery.
    A sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 7 for Terry Leon Lancaster, who gave a Pumpkin Ridge Road address, after being found guilty of two counts of rape of a child under 13 years old and four counts of aggravated sexual battery.
    According to court documents, Lancaster was accused of having sexual contact with a 12-year-old girl on four occasions between June and July of 2015 at his residence.
    The victim, who was not a family member, testified during the two-day trial (March 20 and 22), said Assistant District Attorney Dani Bryson, and Lancaster did not take the witness stand in his own defense.
    However, his defense attorneys offered a recorded statement he gave to investigators, denying the allegations with an “alternate version” of what happened, Bryson said.
    Initially, Lancaster was charged with four counts of rape but after all the evidence was presented Circuit Court Judge Suzanne Lockert-Marsh dismissed two of the charges.
    Bryson said child rape is a Class A felony with a sentencing range of 25 to 40 years, and 25 years is the mandatory minimum for the crime. Aggravated sexual battery is a Class B felony with a sentencing range of eight to 12 years.
    In addition to determining the sentence lengths, Lockert-Marsh also will rule if the sentences should be served concurrently or consecutively.
    John M. Achey Sr., 46, of the 400 block of Green Street was charged with raping an 11-year-old girl, according to court records.
    He waived his hearing before District Judge David M. Howells Jr. on charges of rape of a child, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and indecent assault.

    He was returned to Lehigh County Jail under $100,000 bail. His attorney did not contest the bail Thursday.
    According to court records:
    On Dec. 21, Allentown police received a report of a possible child sex-abuse case.
    Police interviewed an 11-year-old girl who said Achey touched her and performed sex acts. In an interview with police, Achey also admitted to sexual contact with the girl.


    Years before his arrest, Achey received a civilian award for stopping a domestic assault near his home.
    On the night of Aug. 11, 2012, police were dispatched to the 400 block of Green Street, where Achey told them he heard a woman screaming and went outside and found a pregnant woman on the ground, Allentown police said during their annual awards and commendation banquet.
    The woman told him she had been assaulted by her boyfriend. Achey chased the fleeing boyfriend and called police, who arrived and arrested the boyfriend, police said during the banquet.
    The commendation is given for an "outstanding act performed by a courageous citizen" to help make Allentown safer.
    YAKIMA COUNTY, Wash. -- A jury convicted 49-year-old Bradley Merson of third-degree child rape and two other charges.
    He was on trial for having sexual relations with a 14-year-old Yakima girl.
    After a week-long trial including the victim's testimony and other witnesses, a jury found Merson guilty of child rape. He was also found guilty of possessing a controlled substance as well as immoral communication with a minor.
    The rape conviction is the aftermath of what began as inappropriate exchanges on an app in early 2015, where Merson met his victim, identified as K.A.F.
    Despite a 33-year age difference, things escalated between them.
    “Not only did she have to talk about what the defendant did to her, she also had to acknowledge that during the time the defendant was a part of her life she was struggling,” said prosecutor Codee McDaniel.
    The victim struggled with alcohol and drug abuse. Merson reportedly sold her drugs.
    The jury deliberated for several hours on five counts: child rape or child molestation; possession of a controlled substance or possession of a controlled substance with intent to distribute; and felony communication with a minor for immoral purposes.
    “The state has to prove its case beyond a reasonable doubt,” said defense attorney Charles Dold.
    And the prosecution did, stating Merson took advantage of the victim. Merson is a registered sex offender in Illinois and never took the stand, with his attorney saying it could hurt him.
    Prosecutors said the evidence spoke volumes.
    “The evidence proved the defendant was sexually attracted to a 14-year-old girl,” said McDaniel.
    But the case is still far from over as Merson awaits his sentencing. He is expected to be sentenced in May.
    A man accused of abducting and raping a 13-year-old girl must remain in custody, a High Court judge has ruled.
    Christopher Harley also attacked his own mother after she called him a paedophile, prosecutors said.
    Refusing bail to the 29-year-old Londonderry man, Mr Justice McLaughlin held there was a risk of similar offences.
    Harley, of Kular Court in the city, denies charges of abducting a child in care, rape, sexual activity with a child, and common assault. He allegedly committed the sex offences in October last year.
    The girl had been found in his flat at 4.30am after going missing from a care home, the court heard.
    Four days later social workers out again looking for her and another teenager discovered them with a man at a car park in Victoria Market. It was Harley.
    Natalie Pinkerton, prosecuting, said: "The young girl has indicated there was sexual intercourse in his flat."
    The court also heard details of a drunken attack on Harley's mother on December 23.
    During a row at her home he slapped her to the ground when she called him a paedophile, it was claimed.
    Ms Pinkerton continued: "She stated that he put his knee on her chest, causing her difficulty in breathing, and proceeded to punch her four to five times, screaming, 'Say you're sorry'."
    Harley denies all of the charges, with his barrister insisting there is no evidence linking him to the abduction and sex charges.
