AG Paxton’s Child Exploitation Unit Arrests Kerr County Father and Son for
Possession of Child Pornography
AUSTIN, TX – Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced that the Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) of his office arrested a Kerrville father and son for offenses involving child pornography.
Johnny Richard Ingram Sr., 61, was charged with one count of possession of child pornography.
Johnny Richard Ingram Jr., 39, who is a registered sex offender, was charged with three counts of promotion of child pornography.
If convicted, Ingram Sr. could face up to 10 years in prison, and his son could face 60 years.
During an undercover investigation, the CEU discovered child pornography was shared from a device linked to the Ingrams’ home in Kerrville. While executing a search warrant, investigators found child pornography on multiple laptops.
During separate interviews, the father and son confessed to downloading and saving child pornography.
The Texas Attorney General’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.
He followed her from Walmart to Kroger,
offering to buy her granddaughter,
GA cops say
A strange man kept following a woman and her granddaughter as they shopped in Cobb County, Georgia — and police say she soon realized the man wasn’t there just to buy merchandise.
Police say the woman and her granddaughter were shopping at a Kroger grocery store on Roswell Road on Monday night when Einodd Samimi, of Marietta, began making “inappropriate comments” and following them around the store, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
According to police, Samimi commented about “how pretty the child’s hair was” and at one point offered to buy the 7-year-old for $200, WXIA reported.
The woman told police it was the second time he’d allegedly offered to purchase the child that day, according to the Marietta Daily Journal. The grandma told police the same man had offered her $100 to “have” the little girl earlier that same night in a Walmart, the paper reported.
9 children in protective custody, man
arrested for rape, Child Abuse
WICHITA, KS – A 37-year-old man is arrested on multiple charges and nine children are taken into protective custody following a report of physical and sexual abuse in northeast Wichita.
Police say Eric McFadden was booked into the Sedgwick County Jail on six counts of child abuse, one count of rape of a child younger than 14 and one count of aggravated indecent liberties with a child. He’s being held on $250,000 bond.
Police say a 13-year-old boy reported the abuse Friday at Wichita Police Department’s Patrol North. The nine children taken into protective custody range in age from infant to 13 years old.
Monday, Eyewitness News spoke with a neighbor at the apartment complex where the children live who says she was shocked to hear the accusations against McFadden.
“It makes me even more sad to know that it was here in my building, and maybe if I could’ve heard or you know maybe I could’ve said something and got them help sooner,” she says. “It’s just sad and I hate that people do stuff to kids. It’s just sad.”
Texas Elementary Teacher Suspended After Discussing Sexual Orientation
MANSFIELD, TX – An elementary school teacher in Texas was suspended after she allegedly spoke about her sexual orientation with her students, officials said Tuesday.
Charlotte Anderson Elementary art teacher Stacy Bailey, 31, was suspended with pay in September. Officials with the Mansfield Independent School District (ISD) said it received complaints from parents about her discussing her sexual orientation with students.
In a statement sent to Newsweek, Mansfield ISD said it is their “general rule not to comment on employee personnel matters” but misinformation about Bailey’s personnel matter had “created disruption to the Charlotte Anderson Elementary School education environment.”
District officials said the teacher was not suspended over her request to include LGBTQ language in its nondiscrimination policy. Instead, the district said, Bailey was suspended because she “insists that it is her right and that it is age appropriate for her to have ongoing discussions with elementary-aged students about her own sexual orientation, the sexual orientation of artists, and their relationships with other gay artists.”
“Parents have the right to control the conversation with their children, especially as it relates to religion, politics, sex/sexual orientation, etc.,” the statement continued.
Bailey had been warned after the district received parents’ complain but “refused to follow administration’s directions regarding age-appropriate conversation with students,” officials said.
The teacher’s attorney, Giana Ortiz, said that the situation began when she talked to students about her family, including her wife.
“The district appears to speak for Stacy when it states that she ‘insists it is her right and that is it is age appropriate’ to discuss matters including ongoing discussions about her own sexuality. This is absolutely false. Further, she never received directives to change her behavior—and never refused to follow any directive,” Ortiz told The Dallas Morning News.
Ortiz expressed frustration about the school district’s decision to speak about Bailey’s suspension, saying it violated Bailey’s rights under the Constitution.
Bailey’s supporters have rallied behind her, with parents pleading with the school board to reinstate their “beloved teacher” back to the classroom.
Florence Bruner, who has children at Charlotte Anderson Elementary, told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram: “As a parent, we ask a lot of our children and our teachers, but there are two things we hope for the most — one is a teacher whose love of the subject inspires students, and the other is a teacher who cares deeply for our children. Stacy Bailey is without question both of these.”
Bruner, whose fourth-grade daughter has taken art classes with Bailey since kindergarten, added that Bailey is “dearly missed and loved by the children.”
Nearly three dozen people, including Bailey’s wife, father and sister, voiced their support for her during a school board meeting on Tuesday. Eight people, including third-grader Kaine Hendrix, spoke to the board about Bailey’s departure or to ask about including LGBTQ-inclusive language in the district’s anti-discrimination policy.
“Ms. Bailey was my teacher, my role model and someone who always cheered me up,” the 9-year-old boy said. “Every time I go to art it is not the same.”
