TX Woman Charged With Felony Child Abuse

Tuscola woman indicted for confining
children, stabbing another

TUSCOLA, TX  –  A Taylor County deputy’s suspicions of abuse were raised when he found three children walking a dog in the middle of a highway near Tuscola at about 1 a.m. on one August day.

He would then learn that those children were running away from a parent who they say locked them in a closet without food, water, or the ability to go to the bathroom in order to punish them.

That parent, 34-year-old Deborah Anne Whitehead, is now facing felony charges of aggravated assault and injury to a child after being indicted Thursday.

It happened on Aug. 18, 2015, according to court records filed in Taylor County.

The deputy was traveling on Hwy 83 when he found the children.

One of the children told the deputy that they had escaped from their mother’s home after their sister fell asleep and forgot to lock the door.  They said they were going to their father’s house because their mother “was mean to them,” according to the documents.

The deputy went to Whitehead’s house in Tuscola and found a padlock on the inside of the door that the children’s sister would use to confine them inside, according to a warrant.

Court documents say that the deputy discovered that Whitehead would become upset with the children and “lock them in a small closet within the residence and leave them there without food, water, or restroom facilities.”  One of the children, a 10-year-old boy, said he would be locked up for long periods of time and that he could hear his sister screaming when bugs would crawl on her while she was confined.

The children’s sister, whose name is being withheld because she has not been charged with a crime, was interviewed by authorities and confirmed what the children had said.

The sister then told investigators that during an altercation in late March, Whitehead got mad at her and stabbed her in the hip with a knife.  Authorities found the knife and noted a scar on the sister’s hip where she said she had been stabbed, according to the warrant.  Two of the three children said they witnessed part of the assault.

Investigators pieced together the case and Deborah Whitehead was arrested on Feb. 22 on two felony charges.  She was released from the Taylor County Jail the same day on bonds totaling $30,000.

TX Man Arrested For Child Pornography

Texas Attorney General:  Man arrested on 6 counts of child pornography possession

A 22-year-old Adkins man was arrested Thursday for allegedly having multiple images of child pornography, including at least one image of a 10-year-old girl, the Office of the Texas Attorney General said Friday.

Jarrett Ray Dwayne Palitza was formally charged on six counts of possession of child pornography after investigators with the Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton’s Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) conducted a warrant-approved search of his residence in Adkins, which is about 21 miles east of San Antonio.

The CEU became involved initially as assistance to the Sealy Police Department regarding a case of sexual assault of a girl, 10, along with the possibility of a potential possession and distribution of child porn, according to a news release issued Friday.

The search led investigators to Palitza’s home, where child pornography was allegedly discovered.  One of the images was of the 10-year-old girl believed to be involved in the Sealy Police Department case, according to the news release.

“One more dangerous individual is off the streets and behind bars thanks to the efforts of the Child Exploitation Unit and the Sealy Police Department,” Paxton said in a news release.  “My office will remain steadfast in protecting our children and our communities from the heinous acts of these child predators and continue seeking justice against them.”

PA Your Agenda Will Not Benefit Children

Open the Statute Of Limitations for EVERYONE that has Sexually Abused a Child

Let Justice be served EQUALLY, or Stop Persecuting Clergy and ruining careers!!!!

Lawmakers in Pennsylvania asking for help for victims of
Child Abuse

Your agenda shows right through the illusion of helping Children, because BS DOES NOT smell like anything associated with Children, more like CRONYS and GOOD OL’ BOYS….

“I honestly believe just through the calls and emails that I’ve received that we start looking at other diocese,” Rozzi said.

When people start throwing The Clergy under the bus, it always turns out they got something to hide.

As it turns out, I recall quiet a list of things just for the past 2 years  that Pennsylvania would love to hide:

  • Pennsylvania ignoring Sex Offenders and Child Sexual Abuse in their own school systems.
  • Attorney Questions Changed PA Child Abuse Report.
  • PA DHS 3rd Revised 2014 CA Report.
  • Sexual Abuse Suspects Sentenced to 880 Years in Prison.

I believe it needs to be mentioned FOR THE RECORD, that reports of Child Sexual Abuse is UNSUBSTANTIATED only less than 2% of the time, while reports against The Clergy is UNSUBSTANTIATED over 65% of the time, and it must be mentioned FOR THE RECORD, that Law Enforcement conducts all investigations.  Which is, as it should be since Our Officers of the Law are properly trained and best know the Laws.

Reports of child abuse swamp police under updated Pennsylvania law

Pennsylvania’s ChildLine received 62 percent more reports of abuse and neglect in 2015 than it did the year prior to adoption of the Safe Kids Act.

Almost all of the increase was driven by the state’s addition of an online system for reporting abuse.  Prior to last year, phone service to call in abuse was ChildLine’s only component.

PLEASE PENNSYLVANIA, DO NOT LET THESE PEOPLE WITH A BAD AGENDA DETRACT FROM ALL THE GOOD YOU HAVE DONE THIS PAST YEAR WITH THE SAFE KIDS ACT AND LAW ENFORCEMENT BEING IN THE CHILD ABUSE CALL LOOP.  

 

 

Indiana Child Abuse Registry

Bill creating Child Abuse registry
moves forward

Indiana  –  Angie Garza stood in front of lawmakers on Wednesday with a tearful plea.  She asked them to prevent another child from dying as her 19-month grandson did.

Those lawmakers responded.

With a unanimous vote, the Senate Judiciary Committee took the first step toward creating what may be the nation’s first public registry of people convicted of child abuse and neglect.

The bill, authored by Sen. Carlin Yoder, R-Middlebury, requires the state to create a publicly searchable website that lists all persons convicted of crimes against children, akin to the sex offender registry.

Such information exists but access is limited to police and employers doing background checks for workers in licensed child care facilities.

The origins of the proposal lie in the tragedy of Garza’s family.

Her grandson, Kirk Coleman, died in October 2014 while in the care of an Elkhart County woman whom Garza later learned was previously charged with battering a toddler and temporarily barred from caring for children.

While the woman told Garza that her grandson accidentally choked while eating, a pathologist later ruled his death a homicide caused by blunt-force injuries to the head.

“We’ve been trying to get justice ever since, not only for him, but for all children,” Garza said during emotional testimony.

Yoder said he was approached by Garza last fall, after Jackie Rolsten of New Paris, Ind., was charged in Kirk Coleman’s death.

Garza said her family had known Rolsten for many years, but they had no knowledge of her criminal history.  In 2006, Rolsten was arrested on a felony child-battery charge involving a 2-year-old.  She later pleaded to child neglect.

Though her prison term was suspended, Rolsten was ordered by a judge to stop her in-home childcare business while on probation. That order expired before she started taking care of Kirk.

“We had no idea,” Garza said.

Rolsten, now awaiting trial in Elkhart County on a charge of felony-battery resulting in death, didn’t need a state license to care for Kirk. Because she never cared for more than five children in her home, she fell outside of state licensing requirements.

Officials say thousands of such unlicensed childcare providers operate across the state.

Yoder said a registry will fill a gap by giving parents a place to see if someone coming into contact with their children has any prior child-abuse convictions.

“If there’s any good that can come from this, this may be it,” he said.
Still, the bill faces hurdles.

On Wednesday, a State Police official estimated it may cost up $300,000 a year to create and maintain such a registry.  At this point, Yoder’s bill comes with no funding.

Supporters of the idea – including Senate Judiciary Chairman Brent Steele, R-Bedford – promised to find it a way to pay for it.

“I don’t care about the fiscal impact,” said Sen. Greg Taylor, D-Indianapolis.  “When it comes to the safety of children, I don’t care if we have to spend a million dollars.”

Other states have child abuse registries, but public access is limited.

Michigan lawmakers debated creating a public registry like the one Yoder wants after lawmakers there heard testimony from a family with a story similar to Garza’s.

That measure stalled when the American Civil Liberties Union raised concerns that the registry could have an unintended consequence: Someone may be less willing to report a spouse or family member suspected of abuse because they know the individual will be placed on the registry.

The ACLU also argued the registry is a kind of perpetual punishment, not allowing for people who’ve been rehabilitated to get off the list.

Larry Landers, head of the Indiana Public Defender Council, said a public child-abuse registry may face similar challenges.  He noted that Indiana’s sex offender registry, a public website that lists the names and addresses of persons accused of sex crimes, has faced multiple court challenges.

Those issues matter little for Kirk’s mother, Anissa Garza, who wept quietly Wednesday as she sat with a dozen family members to watch the hearing.

The measure must still pass the Senate, then move to the House for a hearing, but Garza said she is relieved that it is gaining support.

“I wouldn’t want to see this ever happen to any other parent,” she said.

Life Without Parole For A Whole
Lot Of People

It is well past time to see the end of Planned Parenthood, and all the evil and misery they deal out.

MISERY????

OH, LIFE WITHOUT PAROLE, LET ME COUNT THE WAYS….

Selling illegal body parts is just the tip of the iceberg, and must carry a heavy FELONY FOR EACH BODY PART.

BUT, selling illegal murdered babies body parts, for illegal research on fetal body parts should draw life as we know it sentences for a whole lot of people from planned parenthood all the way up to a whole lot of people in Washington.

But that still doesn’t begin to address the Dr Frankenstein mentality at work here behind the scenes, not having to rob graves, but simply finish growing illegally harvested baby body parts, for very illegal transplants.
