ICE arrests illegal immigrant after NYPD
releases him after charging him with
child rape, sexual abuse

Federal immigration authorities on Monday arrested an illegal immigrant who had been released from NYPD custody despite being charged with child rape and sexual abuse.

Miguel Federico Ajqui-Ajtzalam, a 20-year-old Guatemalan national illegally present in the U.S., was arrested in New York City late last month on multiple charges related to sexually abusing a minor, according to a press release from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

ICE’s Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) had lodged an immigration detainer with the New York City Department of Corrections (NYCDOC) after his arrest.

The detainer was ignored because of New York City’s sanctuary policies and Ajqui-Ajtzalam was released from custody. ERO officers apprehended him on Monday.

Thomas R. Decker, field officer director for ERO New York, said it was “inconceivable” that Ajqui-Ajtzalam – who was arrested on charges of rape and sexual abuse of a child – should be released back into the community rather than being transferred to ICE.

“It’s frightening that our detainer was ignored and he was released into New York City streets to possibly re-offend,” Decker said.  “The safety of city residents, especially the more vulnerable, continues to be a priority for ICE enforcement.”

U.S. Border Patrol (USBP) initially encountered Ajqui-Ajtzalam in September 2016 after he illegally entered the U.S. without inspection, ICE said.  He was processed as an unaccompanied alien child, issued a Notice to Appear, and was released from ICE custody two months later on an Order of Recognizance (OREC) pending removal proceedings.

He is currently being held in ICE custody pending removal proceedings before a federal immigration judge.

Indian Health Service Doctor Faces
Sex Abuse Charges

RAPID CITY, SD  –  A former Indian Health Service physician in South Dakota faces federal charges that he sexually abused Native American patients.

Pedro Ibarra-Perocier, 58, of Wagner was indicted by a federal grand jury Feb. 4 on four counts of sexual abuse and four counts of abusive sexual contact involving his patients, according to U.S. Attorney for South Dakota Ron Parsons.

Ibarra-Perocier previously worked at the IHS clinic in Wagner on the Yankton Reservation.  The allegations involve four adults between January 2014 and August 2018.

The indictment does not explain where or how Ibarra-Perocier allegedly abused his patients, but it says he engaged in sexual acts and contact with patients by threatening them and making them fearful.  A trial date has not been set.

Earlier this week, a former IHS pediatrician was sentenced for sexually abusing Native American children while on the Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota. Stanley Patrick Weber, 71, of Spearfish was sentenced in federal court to five consecutive life sentences and ordered to pay $800,000 in fines.

In a statement Friday, the IHS said it has “made important strides to address and prevent sexual abuse in healthcare facilities and strengthen policies on patient protections and staff reporting responsibilities.  Patients and employees of the Indian Health Service should never face sexual harassment or abuse.”

CPS Worker Had Role In Prostitution Ring

How Can CPS Be Above The Law!!!!

Pennsylvania: Former CPS Worker Charged With Human Trafficking

With all of the reporting coming out in recent days concerning Child Protective Services (CPS), it’s no wonder that this has occurred.  The only question that remains is: Why have not countless hundreds, or even thousands, also been charged?  Yet, an ex-CPS social worker is now facing charges of human trafficking after recruiting a mother who was her client into prostitution in exchange for a favorable custody recommendation, according to authorities.

Candace Talley, 27, Winslow, NJ charged with 2 counts of human trafficking, promoting prostitution, making threats and other charges.

Candace Talley, 27, of Winslow, New Jersey, was working for the Division of Children and Youth Services in Delaware County, Pennsylvania, when she coerced the mother, whose children were in foster care and whose case Talley was managing, into working as a prostitute, the Delaware County District Attorney’s office announced Thursday.

Talley drove the woman to and from jobs and took more than 25% of the money that was made, authorities said.  Talley also promised the woman she would help falsify her drug test results to help her case.  Talley was part of an “extensive prostitution ring,” the district attorney’s office said in a press release.

Talley was arrested Thursday and charged with two counts of human trafficking for financial gain, promoting prostitution, making threats and other related charges.

That’s not all, CPS has also worked hand in glove with Planned Parenthood to not only kidnap kids from loving homes but blackmail pregnant mothers to murder their unborn children in order to get their children back that CPS kidnapped from them; and those that refused were told that once they gave birth, CPS would be there to kidnap that child from them too.

CPS also failed to return children they kidnapped from mothers who chose abortion to get their kids back.

Man to stand trial for Child Abuse after
son’s death

HUDSONVILLE, MI  –  The father accused of manslaughter in his son’s death was ordered Friday to stand trial for two counts of child abuse.

In a Hudsonville courtroom, Judge Judy Mulder dismissed a third count – child abuse in the presence of another child — that Timothy Koets faced.

“(Koets’) daughter was not present when (Samuel Koets) was left on the porch,” Mulder said in court Friday afternoon.  “So the acts the defendant did to commit the child abuse in this case — the act of leaving his child alone on the porch unsupervised — was not done in the present of a child.  It’s very unfortunate that his daughter had to find her brother alone in the pool in the way she did, but the act of child abuse ….  was not done with the other child present so I am not able to find that there’s probably cause to bind over on count 3.”

Mulder did, however, bound Tim Koets over on two child abuse counts, one of which is a felony punishable by up to four years in prison.

“The facts presented that supported this at the time of the preliminary examination were that Samuel was left on a porch unattended, that the defendant did not assure that his wife was awake to care for Samuel,” said Mulder from the bench.

“There was some testimony that he awoke her.  There was also some competing testimony that he texted his daughter during the course of the time he was gone indicating that he thought his wife was sleeping.  I’m paraphrasing… but that’s how those texts read.  There was also testimony that Samuel Koets functioned as an 18-month-old, that he was a nonverbal child and that he was attracted to water.  So … a reasonable jury listening to those facts could find that this was a reckless act that caused a serious injury to his son, Samuel.  So, therefore I’m going to bind it over on count 2 (felony child abuse in the second degree).”

Mulder previously ordered Tim Koets to stand trial on an involuntary manslaughter charge in the death of his son Sam, 16, who had autism.

Sam drowned after climbing into the backyard pool at the family’s home near Hudsonville.  Authorities say his father, a professor at Grand Rapids Community College, left him unattended when he went to work on March 28, 2019.  When one of his daughters texted him that Sam was in the icy pool, he allegedly texted back, “would you make sure the freak is OK?”

Koets and his wife Michelle Koets told “Inside Edition” in an interview that aired earlier this week that he woke his wife up before he left for work but she fell back asleep.

“It is not a reckless act for one parent to leave a child in the care of another parent,” Koets’ attorney argued Friday before his client was bound over.  “He woke his wife up.  He thought she was awake.”

In the “Inside Edition” interview, the Koetses rejected the notion that Tim Koets was negligent or uncaring.  But investigators told News 8 that Sam Koets was also living in “disturbing” conditions before the drowning.

Outside the courtroom Friday, Koets’ attorney said while he knew Michelle Koets and a daughter had been contacted by “Inside Edition” and might do an interview, he did not know beforehand that Tim Koets would participate in the story.

“Had a discussion with my client and that will not be occurring again,” defense attorney David Kallman said.

Also Friday, both Tim and Michelle Koets were arraigned on charges that they kept filling their son’s Ritalin prescription for months after he died.  Authorities say they were taking the drugs themselves.

2 counts of aggravated Child Abuse

BRANDON, FL  –  A daycare worker in Brandon was arrested on Friday for two counts of aggravated child abuse, officials say.

The infant was in the sole care and custody of 20-year-old Sarah Loria at the daycare.

The pediatrician initially diagnosed the baby with a stomach virus.

On Dec. 20, when Loria was caring for the baby, the infant became unresponsive. Loria then contacted the parent’s who transported the baby to a local hosital.

After an evaluation, it was confirmed that the infant suffered from shaken baby syndrome from both incidents.

On Friday, detectives with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office located and arrested Loria for two counts of aggravated child abuse.

She was transported to the Orient Road Jail without incident.
