In a frail voice, the 36-year-old former McKinley High School teacher apologized for having sexual relationships with three male students and to the teaching profession, school district and the victims “for putting everyone in this position.”

Her attorney, Brad Iams, addressed Stark County Common Pleas Judge John Haas, pleading for leniency and predicting she would not re-offend since she’ll never again be in a teaching position. He also spoke of how she wrecked her career and subjected herself to public humiliation.

Then it was Stark County Assistant Prosecutor Christy Donnelly’s turn. She asked for prison time, citing concern the defendant “has not fully held herself accountable for her actions.” In a court-filing, she specified a term of four years.

SAN ANTONIO — Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said one of his off-duty detention officers has been arrested following accusations that he repeatedly sexually assaulted a 4-year-old.

Salazar said the victim’s mother reported the sexual assault Saturday night after the child made an outcry to her mom. It’s believed the sexual assault had been going on for the past few months, possibly years. Sheriff Salazar said the victim’s mother is an undocumented immigrant and Nunez allegedly threatened her with deportation if she reported the sexual assault.

After further investigation and questioning, 47-year-old Jose Nunez was arrested and charged with super aggravated sexual assault.

Nunez is a 10-year veteran of the sheriff’s office.

It’s believed that other children may be involved. Salazar said there may be other victims.

Palm Beach county Deputy Sheriff Javier Lasso has been suspended as the department investigates allegations that he threatened his daughter’s boyfriend and handcuffed her, forcing her into a police cruiser to “teach her a lesson.” According to a report by internal affairs, Lasso strolled into the boyfriend’s place of employment, in uniform, with his gun clearly visible and told him to stay away from his daughter, who he’d been dating for approximately two years.

The woman who falsely accused a Texas Department of Public Safety trooper of sexual assault after she was pulled over for apparent drunk driving could face charges, according to the Ellis County district attorney.

Sherita Dixon-Cole accused DPS trooper Daniel Hubbard of “forcefully groping” her in a sexual assault inside and outside of his cruiser. Her claims were shared more than 50,000 times online, thanks to posts by Dixon-Cole’s attorney and social activist Shaun King.

But the two-hour dashcam footage released Tuesday night shows no sign of wrongdoing. It shows Hubbard administering multiple field sobriety tests, removing two bottles of alcohol from her and spotting what he believes is an alcoholic drink in a cup holder.

“I see an officer who conducts himself exactly as society demands police conduct themselves today: Beyond reproach,” Ellis County DA Patrick Wilson said. “Tragically, that officer still was publicly and maliciously persecuted.

“What happened to that officer is a shame.”

Wilson said his office is “investigating the possibility” of charges against Dixon-Cole. He says there was “no apparent motive” for the claims and he is “flabbergasted” as to how the story came out.

“When I went to the DPS office to watch the video, I fully expected to see some measure of tension or aggravation between the officer and the woman being arrested,” he said. “The world has now seen that there is nothing of the sort on that video.”

DPS said it was appalled that anyone would make such “despicable, slanderous and false accusations” against a peace officer.

Filing a false police report is a Class B misdemeanor in Texas, according to Section 37.08 of the Texas Penal Code.

Investigators believe there may be more victims tied to the pair, who were sexually involved with boys between 15 and 16 years old, who they knew through family or friends, authorities said.

Talia Sisco, 24, of Saratoga, is being held without bail in the Elmwood women’s jail in Milpitas on multiple counts each of oral copulation of a minor and unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, and arranging a meeting with a minor to commit a sex offense.

PEARL RIVER, LA (WVUE) –
Pearl River residents are angry and upset after the weekend death of a man they say was a valued member of the community.

Jeffrey Howell, 46, died after an apparent altercation on the Pearl River Saturday, and residents are trying to absorb the loss of a man they say was a great neighbor who would give you the shirt off his back.

“It’s horrible. There was no call for that kind of action,” said victim’s friend, Sheila Smith.

Wherever you go in the town of Pearl River, it’s the same story.

“He was sitting in our living room Friday night, and the next minute he’s gone,” said neighbor Kathy Maillet.

“They got their family out there, children swimming, having a good family time, and here we got something like that. It’s horrible,” Smith said.

Friends say Howell’s death came after he tried to protect the river and the children who play there.

“From what we heard they were throwing bottles in the river, and they were told to stop throwing bottles. This is a hazard,” said Maillet.

Howell had recently undergone surgery to remove a tumor and still had staples in his head.

“If you cup your hand behind your left ear, that’s where the incision was, and that’s where the bone had been removed,” said St. Tammany Coroner Dr. Charles Preston.

Preston’s autopsy revealed that Howell died from a blow to the head near the scar from his surgery three weeks ago.

“The cause of death was blunt head trauma. He was fresh on an operation on his head to remove a malignancy,” said Preston.

The St. Tammany sheriff arrested two people, 21-year-old Cameron Alphonso, charged with manslaughter, and 22-year-old Alden Kindergran, charged with disturbing the peace.

St. Tammany investigators said they’re continue to interview witnesses in a case, which they call active and ongoing. Detectives say more arrests are possible.

Funeral arrangements for Howell are pending.

During a court sentencing, a Northwest Arkansas man admitted to purposely contracting HIV so he could infect others with the virus.

Stephen Koch pleaded guilty Monday to attempting to expose another person to hiv, possession of meth with purpose to deliver and eight counts of distributing or viewing child pornography.

Koch was sentenced to 50 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction.

He is also required to register as a sex offender.

For a man to say he intentionally contracted hiv to infect others is something Mark Williams. an HIV survivor, thought he’d never hear about.

But this only fuels Williams to keep his education efforts up here in NWA.

“It’s very irritating that people do not take the disease serious enough,” said Williams.

According to court documents, while Benton County prosecutors were searching through Koch’s computer for child pornography, they discovered that he knowingly infected himself with HIV.

“For somebody to have such low self-esteem, and lack of worth that they would try to go out and do something that stupid is the only word I can think to use,” said Williams.

Williams said it’s offensive that someone would do something so evil.

“To want to take himself down this road, and infect other people I just can’t comprehend it,” said Williams.

HIV educator Ruth Coker Burks said Koch’s actions disrespect those who’ve lost their life to the virus.

“He was set out to destroy any and everything. It’s so unfortunate and awful when people have died just tried to live with this virus,” said Burks
