Owner of Manhattan, Kansas restaurant bound over on 26 child sex counts

MANHATTAN, KANSAS  –  The longtime owner of a Manhattan restaurant has been bound over on 26 charges of sexual abuse against minors, KMAN Radio reports.

Arraignment is scheduled for July in Riley County District Court for Robert Iacobellis, 62, the owner of Bob’s Diner.

Charges range from aggravated indecent liberties to rape and sodomy.

KMAN reports that 24 of the counts carry a life sentence.

During a preliminary hearing Tuesday in Riley County District Court, three victims testified that Iacobellis touched, fondled or sexually assaulted them on numerous occasions, sometimes when they were as young as 7 years old, KMAN reports.

Iacobellis will be tried on 16 counts against the first victim, including charges of rape and sodomy;  six counts of aggravated indecent liberties against a second victim; and four counts against a third victim.

During testimony at Tuesday’s preliminary hearing, one of the victims alleged the abuse began when her mother — who is a former weekend employee at Bob’s Diner — had Iacobellis watch her while she went to work.  That victim alleged the abuse continued until January 2019.

Judge William Malcolm found enough probable cause from the testimony to proceed to trial.

Iacobellis was arrested in August 2019.  An amended complaint listed 130 total charges against the three alleged victims.

Iacobellis will be arraigned at 2:30 p.m. July 6 with Judge Kendra Lewison presiding.
According to KMAN, Iacobellis remains jailed on a $400,000 bond.

Nurse convicted for sharing information
on child rape has license suspended

JOHNSON CITY, TN  –  A former Johnson City Medical Center nurse who was a sexual assault examiner has had her license suspended for five years, 18 months after she was found guilty of unlawful disclosure of confidential child sex abuse information.

Tessa Proffitt, of Jonesborough, was found guilty on six counts in November 2018 after she was discovered to have communicated with the mother of a child rape suspect about the case.  William David Blevins was convicted in the case of rape of a child who was 10 years old at the time of the offenses.

During its investigation into Blevins, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) discovered Proffitt was communicating with Alicia May, a registered nurse who is Blevins’ mother, according to a Tennessee Board of Nursing agreed order.

Proffitt, as a sexual assault nurse examiner, had performed a rape examination on Blevins’ victim and collected evidence for a rape kit.

A Washington County grand jury initially charged Proffitt with two counts of tampering with evidence and one count of criminal conspiracy to tamper with evidence in addition to the unlawful disclosure charges.

She was sentenced to 11 months 29 days probation, ordered to perform 60 hours of community service and fined $250.

During the suspension of her nursing license, Proffitt is ordered to obtain 15 hours of Tennessee Board of Nursing-approved ethics training and 15 hours regarding HIPAA/confidentiality.

She must also pay two separate $1,000 fines and take and pass the Ethics and Boundaries Assessment Exam.

Blevins, of Johnson City, was charged in November 2019 with violating the sex offender registry.

PBS New Series Airs Just In Time for
Gay Pride Month

PBS is going all out to celebrate LGBTQ+ Pride Month by launching a six-episode series of short videos on a dedicated YouTube Channel created by its Digital Studios.

Each Tuesday, which began May 26, PBS will release Prideland vignette focusing on an LGBTQ+ person and how that person deals with the ever-changing attitudes of Southern communities toward homosexual lifestyles.

On June 12, PBS will offer its member television stations the opportunity to air a one-hour companion special featuring series host and homosexual activist Dyllón Burnside.

PBS’s decision to partner with Burnside to push the homosexual agenda is an unjust attack on Christianity and a mockery of the Bible and God’s design for human sexuality.

Sadly, PBS is proudly promoting a lifestyle that is unhealthy to both the individual who participates in the unnatural sexual behavior and to society as a whole.

For example, Episode 2 is titled “An Openly Gay Pastor’s Journey to Acceptance in the Bible Belt.” PBS describes the episode this way: “Burnside introduces viewers to Rob Lowry, an openly gay minister at a small, but mainstream church in Jackson, Mississippi.  He was offered the job before the church knew he was gay, but they accepted him with open arms when he told them he would only take the position if he could lead while openly gay.”

Other videos highlight transgenders, same-sex adoptions, and sexual “hookups.”

In 2020, PBS received $445 million in taxpayer fundingThis means you and I are directly paying for PBS to insult our faith and scoff at our God.

I hope you will take a moment to let PBS know you oppose its support and promotion of this series.

TAKE ACTION

Sign our petition to PBS urging it to break all ties with Burnside and cancel all involvement in Prideland.

Be sure to forward this to your family and friends, and invite them to sign the petition too.
