This is justice????

Father treated Children like animals
Wayne Sperling

How could 5 years in prison be considered justice????

The four young boys were deprived of sunlight.

On Tuesday in Denver District Court the father of the four boys, 67-year-old Wayne Sperling, was sentenced to five years in prison for keeping his sons in a tiny Denver apartment covered in layers of cat and human feces. Decomposing animals were found near the squalid mattress the four boys shared.

Sperling accepted a plea agreement on Nov. 13 in Denver District Court. He pleaded guilty to one felony count of child abuse naming all four boys.

The original six felony charges were dropped.

None of the boys — ages 2, 4, 5 and 6 at the time — could speak or recognize their names when they were removed from the apartment in September 2013. They didn’t know how to eat a sandwich or recognize an apple as food, said Deputy District Attorney Anita Drasan.

The four boys went through a total of six surgeries after they were rescued. One boy still struggles with respiratory illness and another suffers from a heart defect.

Drasan handed a photo of the youngest boy to Denver District Court Judge Eric Elliff before she spoke. Elliff stared down at the photo as Drasan described how the little boy still scavenges for crumbs and hoards food. All four boys have been placed in the same foster home and have made dramatic improvements, but they still have “long battles before them,” Drasan said.

Sperling and the boys’ mother, Lorinda Bailey, were known to Denver County child protective services before their arrest in October 2013. In 2006 and 2009, both Sperling and Bailey pleaded guilty to misdemeanor child abuse charges. Bailey’s parental rights for her three other children were terminated in 2009.  Each received a sentence of two years of probation in that case.

“We’re not standing here today asking for a department of corrections sentence for someone who didn’t know better,” Drasan said. “He knew better.”

But Sperling’s attorney, public defender Elizabeth Atkinson, called Sperling “marginalized in many ways,” and said he was remorseful for what happened to his sons. The abuse they suffered, she said, was not out of malice.  “They were harmed by ignorance,” Atkinson said. “By parents who were not equipped to be parents.”

As his attorney spoke, Sperling hunched over the long defense table gripping a wooden pipe he’d brought to several of his earlier hearings. His pursed lips quivered as he held back tears and his eyes darted to different spots on the table.

When asked if he wanted to say anything, Sperling quietly spoke in a few, short sentences. Only his last sentence could be heard from the galley behind him.  “Whatever you feel is right,” he said.

Atkinson asked Elliff to sentence Sterling to the same punishment handed down to Bailey. The 37-year-old accepted a similar plea agreement and pleaded guilty to reckless child abuse. She was sentenced to 90 days in the Denver jail and five years of probation.

But Elliff viewed the two cases in very different ways, he said. “The control here, in my view, Mr. Sperling was all with you,” Elliff said. “You make excuses from the bizarre to the incredible.” Elliff said Sperling’s sentence will hopefully send a message to the community. “The message is you have to treat you children with dignity,” Elliff said. “They are not pets or possessions.”

Neither Sperling or Bailey are fighting for custody for any of their seven children.

Child Sexual Abuse or HB771

 Cronyism in Georgia or Collusion

The law in Georgia currently allows for civil action 5 years past a victims 18th birthday. This amendment would allow action against up to 10 years or 28 years old, giving the victim more time to speak out. Relatives are the most common abusers which makes it more difficult for the victims to tell anyone. By exposing the abusers it could ultimately help stop the cycle of abuse.

I fail to see why this revision is even being discussed, I would have thought something like this would have passed by a landslide victory 50 or more years ago.  Whitewash this all you want, and it still comes out stinking!!!!  THIS IS AMERICA’S DIRTY LITTLE SECRET, it is apparent to me that having sex with Children is a widely accepted practice among many in Our Country, and it appears like this is the norm the world over. 

Georgia Law Allows a Serial Predator Athletic Coach’s crimes to go unrecognized and his legacy to be protected due to City Government abdicating Civic and Moral Principles to allow an unelected City Liability Insurance Carriers influence to block prevention dialogue. Thomaston Times Civitas media editor Larry Sanford refused to report that a police report had been filed in January 2014 aiding in a cover up conspiracy to censor the community of serial predator allegations. .

I want to commend Sarah Serluco for a job well done on this sad, sick, story. .  For everyone who seemed to always be singled out and picked on for no apparent reason, now you know the reason for at least a part of it, to keep prying eyes off of the TRULY SICK LOW-LIFES.

I want to add a thought or more:  I was more than surprised when, after unable to continue this post last night, it was still on my screen and ready to be finished, when I was able to continue a short time ago.  A very unnerving thought occurred to me, it is quiet possible the reason for much of the mud-slinging during political races is finally known….


Florida is #1 Sex Offender State

The state of Florida has more than 57,000 registered sexual offenders, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

The state also has the dubious distinction of having one of the highest proportions of sex offenders by population. In 2011, the Sentinel said, there were 307 registered offenders per 100,000 residents, topping both California and Texas for population density.

Elderly Good Samaritans Stop Christmas Day Robber

The Three Gentlemen stepped in to help a 68-year-old Woman.

Armed Robber
Larry S. Kent Jr

A 45-year-old Winter Haven man spent Christmas night behind bars courtesy of three good Samaritans who came to the rescue of a 68-year-old woman who was being robbed.

According to the Winter Haven Police Department, the crime in question took place around 5:45 p.m. as Valerie Melzer was returning to her vehicle after enjoying Christmas dinner with friends at a restaurant. When she approached the car, police said, Larry S. Kent Jr. ran up behind her and tried to snatch her purse. Melzer wasn’t such an easy target, Kent discovered.

Police say she began screaming and wouldn’t give up her purse. When they heard her screams, two of Mezler’s friends “sprang into action,” police wrote in an email to media. “At this time, Kent was dragging the victim at least 15 feet across the parking lot,” the email said. “The witnesses, 66 year-old Marvin Hotakainen and 73 year-old Paul Murray tackled Kent, pinning him to the ground while Melzer was able to break free.”

At this time, Patrick Cameron, 67, was leaving the restaurant and heard the commotion. When witnesses started yelling that Kent had a gun, “Cameron ran to assist holding Kent’s legs while Hotakainen and Murray held his upper body to the ground and retrieved the gun.” Kent’s weapon turned out to be a BB gun, but the men held him for special delivery to police officers anyway.

Melzer suffered minor cuts during the attack and was treated at the scene. Kent, however, had to take a side trip to Winter Haven Hospital for treatment of a broken rib and a few minor injuries, police noted. While making the pit stop, police found a clear baggie in Kent’s possession. That baggie contained .9 grams of methamphetamine, police said.

Kent was eventually booked into the Polk County Jail on robbery with a firearm, battery on a person 65 or older, possession of methamphetamine and possession of drug paraphernalia charges. He was being held without bond Friday morning. Kent, police say, is no stranger to Florida law enforcement. He has been arrested 17 times in Polk County and has served 4 years in Florida State Prison for grand theft auto, forgery and grand theft convictions.


Timothy Poole’s

Will Victims Win $3M Lotto Won By Predator????

Two of the former Florida man’s victims have filed a lawsuit against the scratch-off ticket winner.

Timothy Poole’s luck might be changing.

The Florida convicted sexual predator won $3 million on a lottery scratch-off ticket earlier this month is now facing a lawsuit filed on behalf of two of his former victims, the Orlando Sentinel reported. The suit was filed on Monday and lists two victims, who were 9 and 5 at the time of their attacks, as the plaintiffs, Click Orlando reported. The suit asks for an undisclosed amount of damages.

Poole, 43, took a lump-sum payment of $2.2 million in return for his winning lottery ticket in early December. It is unclear how much of Poole’s haul the lawsuit seeks.

Poole has been arrested 12 times in Florida, according to the Orlando Sentinel. He was arrested in 2001 on charges of sexual battery on a girl under the age of 12, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement website indicates. He’s also been arrested for stealing nearly $20,000 in food stamps, the paper pointed out.

While Poole lived in Mount Dora before his big lottery win, FDLE’s website indicates he’s since moved to Mineral Wells, W. Va.

Poole’s win created quite a stir when the announcement of his windfall was posted and then subsequently taken down on the Florida Lottery’s website. While Florida law doesn’t stop a convicted felon from winning a big prize, lottery officials felt it best to remove Poole’s information.

“We chose to not draw additional attention to this particular winner,” Shelly Gerteisen, communications manager for the Florida Lottery, told the Sentinel.
