CHILD RAPISTS 127

A convicted sex offender suspected of molesting several Riverside children was being held Friday in lieu of $1.5 million bail.
Tyrone Sanchez, 35, of Hemet was arrested and booked into the Robert Presley Jail on suspicion of lewd acts on a child under 14 years old, forced oral copulation of a minor and targeting multiple victims in a sex crime.

According to Riverside police Detective Karla Beler, the offenses occurred over a roughly 14-year span, beginning in 2003.

Beler declined to disclose how the children knew the suspect, or the circumstances behind the abuse.

"Due to Sanchez's personable nature, it is believed there could be other unreported victims," she said.

Anyone with information was asked to contact the police department's Sexual Assault Child Abuse unit at (951) 353-7125.

According to court records, Sanchez has a 2009 conviction for failure to maintain his sex offender registration under Penal Code 290, which requires all registrants to keep law enforcement officials informed of where they're living.

The California Department of Justice's Megan's Law website also shows that he was convicted in 2003 of lewd acts on a child but evidently did not serve time in state prison.

A corrections officer from Onondaga County is accused of sexually abusing two minors during a camping trip at Watkins Glen.
Shawn Stoltz, 50 of Jordan, is charged with second-degree sexual abuse, forcible touching, endangering the welfare of a child and providing alcohol to minors.
According to investigators, Stoltz had sexual contact with two girls, ages 13 and 14, at Watkins Glen Campgrounds over Memorial Day Weekend. He was issued an appearance ticket.
Stoltz is due back in court June 23.

Child rapist John Tyler had more than a decade shaved off his 73-year prison sentence Friday after he won part of his appeal, and his case was sent back to Clark County Superior Court for resentencing.
Tyler, now 50, was convicted by a jury and sentenced in 2002 on 15 felony counts of child rape and molestation. He repeatedly abused three young girls, whom were family members, over the course of nearly a decade. The girls reported the abuse when they were 13, 12 and 9 but testified that it began when they were 4 or 5.
In July, the Washington Court of Appeals upheld Tyler’s convictions but ordered his case be remanded to Superior Court for resentencing after finding that during his original sentencing, the prosecution did not prove his prior criminal history. Some past criminal convictions count toward an offender’s score, which determines the length of a sentence.
Tyler faced a sentencing range of about 20 to 26 1/2 years at the time, but former Superior Court Judge John Wulle handed down an exceptional sentence. He based the longer-than-normal sentence, in part, on aggravating factors he found — among them, the victims were particularly vulnerable and Tyler violated his position of trust.
Following an evidentiary hearing Friday, Judge Derek Vanderwood found that Tyler has an off-the-chart offender score of 47 points. The offender score for purposes of sentencing within the standard range stops at nine.
Deputy Prosecutor Colin Hayes asked the judge to impose the same exceptional sentence that Wulle did and again sentence Tyler to spend 73 years to life in prison. After serving the minimum sentence, Tyler would go before an Indeterminate Sentencing Review Board to decide whether he can be released.

SALISBURY — A Thomasville man was convicted this week of raping an 8-year-old girl, who told her story after attending a school program on child abuse.

Kevin Scott Rose, 36, was convicted in Rowan County Criminal Court of 11 counts of felony second-degree sex offense, 10 counts of felony first-degree sexual exploitation, one count of felony second-degree rape, and another sex offense.

Judge Anna Mills Wagoner sentenced Rose to 20 to nearly 38 and a half years in prison. He will be required to register as a sex offender and be subject to satellite-based monitoring for the rest of his life. Rose has been in the Rowan County Detention Center since his June 2015 arrest.

The crimes committed by Rose were reported as a result of the “Speak Up, Be Safe” program presented by Terrie Hess House Child Advocacy Center of Rowan County at a local elementary school. An 11-year-old girl told the presenter that she had been molested by a former neighbor when she was 8 years old.

A forensic interview was conducted at the Child Advocacy Center. The Rowan County District Attorney’s Office, Sheriff’s Office and Department of Social Services launched a coordinated investigation.

During the child’s interview, she disclosed that she and her sister would spend the night at a friend’s house. She said that Rose would have all three girls line up, youngest to oldest, without clothes on. Rose would look at them and then touch each of them, she said.

She said the first time, “she didn’t know any better.” The girl said Rose would move on to her sister and the third victim, oldest to youngest. At times, she said, Rose would take pictures of them in the nude and videotape the things he did with them.

The abuse continued each time the girls visited their friend for a couple of years until Rose and his family moved away. She said the girls never really talked about the abuse among themselves. She said that after a while, she began to resist Rose, but he would tell her she would be sent home if she didn’t do what he asked. She was afraid that she wouldn’t be able to see her friend anymore and that no one would believe her, she said.

Forensic interviews were conducted with her sister the other victim. Her sister corroborated her story, but one of the victims denied everything and claimed her friends were making it up.

Detectives with the Rowan County Sheriff’s Office found Rose living in Thomasville, and he was separated from his wife and children. They discovered that Rose was a registered sex offender who had been prosecuted for possession of child pornography in 2015. Rose was interviewed and denied all the accusations.

Detectives discovered that computers, phones and hard drives from the previous investigation of Rose were still held as evidence at the Salisbury Police Department. Upon review of those items, detectives found pictures and videos of the three girls.

District Attorney Brandy Cook said she appreciated the work of Assistant District Attorney Paxton Butler in the prosecution of this case. Cook said that sexual crimes against children can be the most difficult types of crime to prosecute because they require experienced detectives, DSS case workers, child advocates and prosecutors working together as a team.


A Mechanicsburg man faces decades in prison after a jury convicted him Wednesday of rape of a child and related sexual offenses.

The Dauphin County District Attorney's Office said Luis A. Cruz, 56, could be sentenced to a 25-year mandatory minimum sentence for each offense because he was previously convicted of rape of a child.
In this case, Cruz was convicted of assaulting a child over the course of a year when she was 8 and 9 years old. Cruz, the boyfriend of the victim's mother between 2007 and 2008, moved into the home where the victim lived with her mother and two younger sisters a few months into the relationship. 
The victim disclosed the abuse to authorities in March 2014 after getting into a fight with her mother.  She testified during trial that she had a lot of hate for her mother because she brought Cruz into the family home.  She provided a very graphic account of the sex acts committed against her for about one year, the district attorney's office said, and said the abuse started with touching and escalated from there. 
The prosecution was permitted to present evidence of Cruz's prior bad acts to show common scheme and intent.  A prior victim testified that she was sexually abused by Cruz when she was ages 10 and 11.  Cruz was her mother's boyfriend back in 1995 when she was sexually assaulted in their home, she said. 
In 1995, Cruz was charged with rape of a child and related sexual offenses.  He entered a negotiated guilty plea to the charges and was sentenced to 3 to 10 years in prison.
The jury this week deliberated about three hours before returning a verdict of guilty on all the charges.  In addition to rape of a child, Cruz was convicted of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor and corruption of a minor. 
President Judge Richard A. Lewis scheduled sentencing for June 19.
The case was prosecuted by Chief Deputy District Attorney Jennifer W. Gettle and Deputy District Attorney Chelsea A. Fry.  Detective Shawn M. Donofrio of the Harrisburg Police Department investigated the case.

A Candor man admitted his guilt Tuesday in a child sexual abuse case.
Matthew Williams, 35, pleaded guilty in Tioga County Court to felony counts of first-degree sexual abuse and first-degree criminal sexual act. He will face up to 25 years in state prison when sentenced Sept. 11 by Judge Gerald Keene.
State police arrested Williams in July 2016 after investigating a report of abuse against a victim under the age of 13, officials said. 
Investigators did not disclose how the incident was reported to law enforcement, and prosecutors did not release additional details about the case in announcing Williams' guilty plea.

A Plano man has been sentenced to prison for Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child.
According to the Collin County District Attorney’s Office, 22-year-old Daniel Ortega sexually abused the victim multiple times a week for a three year period beginning when the child was 9-years-old. When the child moved away she told her mother about the abuse who then went to police.
A jury returned a guilty verdict and Ortega was sentenced a short time later.
“After the jury returned with a guilty verdict the defense asked us if we could reach an agreement and we did reach an agreement,” said Collin County Assistant District Attorney, Geeta Singletary.

Ortega was sentenced to 41 years behind bars for the Sexual Abuse charge and sentenced to 20 years in prison on a related charge of Indecency with a Child.

Plano Man Sentenced for Continuous Sexual Abuse of a Child

WHITINGHAM- Police have charged Gary Dix Sr., 66, of Whitingham, with aggravated sexual assault of a child, offenses that are alleged to have taken place over more than a decade. 

Dix was arrested on June 5, following a two-and-a-half-month-long investigation. Dix was ordered held at the Southern State Correctional Facility on $10,000 bail until his arraignment the following day. At his arraignment on Tuesday, Dix pleaded not guilty to the charge, and was ordered held without bail. 

According to a police affidavit filed in the case, Dix is alleged to have sexually assaulted the victim several times over more than a decade in the 1980s and 1990s. In a statement written for police at the beginning of the investigation, the victim said she was stepping forward out of concern for other children Dix might “encounter in his volunteer work and babysitting.”

Several of the incidents occurred while Dix was staying at a relative’s house in the area, according to the affidavit. The rapes are claimed to have started when the victim was 8 years old. At least one, according to the affidavit, may have occurred in front of a witness, identified as Dix’s wife at the time. Dix’s former wife has not been charged, and in a later conversation documented in the affidavit, Dix said he didn’t remember his former wife being in the room at the time.

The assaults continued through the victim’s teen years, the complainant told police, and several incidents included the use of alcohol and marijuana supplied by Dix. When the complainant was 18, Dix gave her a quantity of cocaine and, after a two-day party at another relative’s house, he raped her for the last time. 

Several people confronted Dix about the abuse, according to the victim, including her (now former) husband in 1994. About 18 years after the last assault, the victim also confronted Dix and, according to the affidavit, he admitted what he had done. A short time later, the victim’s mother confronted Dix about the abuse. He reportedly told her he was “on drugs and things happened.”

Several years later, the victim’s fiance also confronted Dix and he admitted the molestation. 

According to the affidavit, Dix initiated telephone contact with the victim recently, and police obtained a warrant to record a subsequent conversation with Dix. According to the affidavit, during the call Dix confirmed the assaults, and said he was “very sorry.” He also denied he had molested anyone else.

MT. VERNON — Rudy Byler was declared a sexually dangerous person Friday and was civilly committed to the Illinois Department of Corrections.
Byler, 39, of Belle Rive, admitted to the allegations contained in the state's petition to declare him sexually dangerous. He will be committed to the DOC to receive treatment and will not be released until it's determined he has recovered and is no longer a danger to the public.
“There's no minimum or maximum sentence under a sexually dangerous person commitment,” said Judge Barry Vaughan. “He (is to be) committed until he is no longer considered a sexually dangerous person.”
Byler was formally charged last year with three counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child, two counts of criminal sexual assault of a child, and two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. He was arrested in April 2016 after committing sexual acts with a victim under the age of 10.
He also has a prior conviction in 2014 on three counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse. That case involved two child victims. Byler entered into a plea agreement and received 48 months probation and also must register as a sex offender.
Assistant Attorney General Haley Bookhout, the prosecutor, said a psychiatrist had examined Byler and found that he has a pedophilic disorder and has a significant risk of re-offending.
“The court further finds that it is substantially probable that (Byler) will engage in the commission of sex offenses in the future if not confined,” states the court order committing Byler to the DOC.
