American Danny Lee Pope Arrested for
Soliciting Child Exploitation

O.U.R. is proud to support the amazing work being done overseas to stop American predators.

On March 2nd, AIM SWAT assisted Cambodian law enforcement in arresting Danny Lee Pope, a 59-year-old American man from North Carolina, for sexually abusing young children and soliciting child exploitation.

Pope’s arrest took place after the mother of an 8-year-old girl reported to police that Pope had taken her daughter from Phnom Penh to go with him to Sihanoukville province the previous day without her consent and had not returned.  When he returned the child, she revealed to her mother that Pope had sexually abused her.

After her mother filed a police report, Cambodia’s Anti-Human Trafficking and Juvenile Protection Police (AHTJPP) assisted by AIM’s SWAT Team arrested Pope in a Phnom Penh massage parlor.

The 8-year-old child was interviewed and disclosed information of four other victims including minors aged 11, 12 and 17 along with an 18-year-old woman who was sexually abused by Pope over several years.

These victims were identified and located and are now receiving aftercare at AIM’s Restoration Home. .All victims will be represented by our legal team in the forthcoming proceedings.

Though he’s denied any guilt, Pope has been charged with multiple counts of rape of a minor and soliciting child exploitation and will await his trial from prison.  He is suspected of visiting Cambodia to engage in child exploitation since 2007.  Our team will continue to assist the police in identifying other possible victims of Pope and recovering any additional evidence.

AIM has assisted in the rescue of over 1,200 victims of exploitation as well as the arrest and prosecution of over 300 traffickers and pedophiles, including Americans Michael Pepe and Danny Davila.

Thanks to the efforts of the AHTJPP, many improvements have been made to combat trafficking in Cambodia.  However, cases like Danny Lee Pope’s remind us of the urgent work that is still to be done to stop the exploitation of children.  Our rescue statistics show that minors account for roughly 40% of all sex trafficking victims AIM assists in rescuing.

The AntiChild Agenda

“Not long ago, conservatives warned that liberals would try pushing their transgender agenda on children — and now the United States government is funding it.”

8-Year-Old Girls Now Given Testosterone Through ‘Government Funded Research’

Not long ago, conservatives warned that liberals would try pushing their transgender agenda on children — and now the United States government is funding it.

Our Liberal Officials are responsible for taking the rights of normal Children away, while at the same time they now allow self-gratifying “people” to give very young Children puberty blockers, and never file Felony Child Abuse on them.

This year alone, 10,000,000 Young People, 13 years of age to 23 years of age will contract at least one (1) or more STI or STD.

We now have 35 known STDs.  In 1960, we only had two.

Teenagers make up one-third of the U.S. population, but they carry 50 percent of STDs.

One in four teens has an STD.  (Over 80% of those infections have no symptoms, so they can go undetected, which is dangerous for the teen, their future sexual partners and their future children.)

From 1999-2014, the suicide rate in girls age 10 to 14 tripled.

The 6 months following an abortion, high school females were 10 times more likely to commit suicide than other females.

As STDs have become an epidemic in teens, so has depression.

VT Couple Accused Of Brutal Abuse

Prosecutor:  Exam of ‘Ravenously Hungry’ Children Reveals Disturbing Child Abuse Case

“A Barre couple is accused of extensively harming children known to them—both physically and sexually”

Police and prosecutors in Vermont’s Washington County are calling an investigation into a Barre couple one of their most disturbing cases of alleged child abuse in recent memory.

“It’s a really concerning fact pattern,” Washington County State’s Attorney Rory Thibault said of the accusations against Robin Benedict, 38, and Roland Withers, 35.

Police affidavits filed with the court Friday outline accusations that the couple subjected multiple children who were known to them to extensive cruelty and harm.

Investigators said there were beatings—even threats of murder.  Interviews with the children revealed the kids could go days without food or be locked in closets for punishment, according to the affidavits.  One young child was allegedly made to drink alcohol, Thibault noted.

The adults are also accused of repeatedly sexually assaulting two children and forcing them to touch each other’s private parts.

Separate defense attorneys for both Benedict and Withers entered not guilty pleas on behalf of their clients to all counts against them.

In one of the interviews described in the affidavits, Robin Benedict said she was afraid Withers might seriously hurt her if she reported the alleged crimes.  However, prosecutors said she was a knowing participant in some of the alleged abuse.

Thibault noted the investigation is ongoing.

Judge Mary Morrissey ordered Benedict and Withers jailed without bail until at least their next court hearings.  In those hearings, defense attorneys may argue for the suspects to be released on conditions, and prosecutors could present evidence asking that they remain in jail until trial.

According to court paperwork, police learned about the situation after the children’s doctor called in an urgent report that they were “filthy and pale,” “ravenously hungry,” and in the pediatrician’s opinion, “at risk of recurrent injury, deprivation, and death.”

Those alleged victims are now in DCF custody.

In the suspects’ Barre neighborhood, the accusations were deeply upsetting to other parents.

“To hear even just one child is torture,” said Barre resident Amanda Plante.  “So I really do hope those kids can find peace.”

The chief of police in Barre said the community and state take sexual violence and crimes against children very seriously, and he wants survivors to know help is available.

“There are a lot of resources in the community and there are a lot of contact points,” said Chief Tim Bombardier.  “You can deal with your healthcare provider, you can go through victim advocate services, you can even contact the police department and ask to speak to me.”

AG Paxton’s Child Exploitation Unit Arrests Sabine County Man for Promotion of
Child Pornography

AUSTIN, TX  –  Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced that the Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) of his office arrested 60-year-old John Max Walter, of Hemphill, Texas, on one count of promotion of child pornography, a second-degree felony.

A tip from a social media networking site to the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children® (NCMEC) led CEU investigators to Walter, a former volunteer firefighter for the city of Hemphill.

During an interview, Walter admitted he uploaded an image of child pornography to his social media account and sent it to another user.  A search of his home turned up digital devices that were taken for examination by the Digital Forensics Unit of the attorney general’s office.

Attorney General Paxton’s office works to protect children by using the latest technology to track down some of the most profoundly evil predators online.

The CEU proactively seeks out and arrests predators who commit crimes against children using technology and online sources.

Attorney General Paxton urges all parents and teachers to become aware of the risks our children face on the internet and take steps to help ensure their children’s safety.

If you suspect someone is producing or downloading child pornography you can report it to NCMEC.

New Boston TX Child Predator Indicted

Grand jury indicts New Boston man for
human trafficking, child sex abuse,
possession of child pornography

TEXARKANA, TX  –  A Bowie County grand jury Thursday indicted a New Boston, Texas, man for the alleged sexual abuse of his girlfriend’s teen daughter.

Robert Allen Smith, 34, was indicted for two counts of sexual assault of a child and single counts of continuous trafficking of persons and possession of child pornography.  The abuse allegedly occurred while the girl was 15 to 17 years old.

According to a probable cause affidavit, Smith would send the girl a text message telling her to take a shower when he wanted to sexually abuse her.  The girl told authorities that Smith would come in the bathroom and sexually abuse her.

The girl described being sexually assaulted and sodomized and alleged that Smith would ask that she urinate on his face.  The girl allegedly told a forensic interviewer at the Texarkana Children’s Advocacy Center that Smith took nude photos of her in the bathroom of her mother’s home with a drone that he held in one hand while working the controls with the other.

The girl reported that Smith traveled with her across state lines during a summer while he was working as a commercial truck driver and that he sexually abused her in various locations during the trip.  Images depicting the sexual exploitation of children were allegedly found after Smith’s electronic devices were seized by law enforcement.

If convicted of child pornography possession, Smith faces two to 10 years in prison. If convicted of sexual assault of a child, Smith faces two to 10 years on each of two counts.  If found guilty of trafficking, Smith faces 25 to 99 years or life in prison.

There is no parole eligibility from a sentence for human trafficking in Texas.  Smith must serve the entire amount of any sentence he receives.

The case is assigned to 202nd District Judge John Tidwell.  First Assistant District Attorney Kelley Crisp and Assistant District Attorney Lauren Richards are prosecuting. Smith is represented by the Bowie County Public Defenders Office.
