Seven people charged in Vinton County Child Abuse cases
VINTON COUNTY, OH – Seven people are facing various charges for multiple instances of child abuse in Vinton County.
The Vinton County prosecutor says the seven were arrested Thursday after being indicted by a grand jury.
In a release, Vinton County Prosecutor Trecia Kimes-Brown outlined three separate cases where children under a year old were allegedly abused, and one of them died.
Kimes-Brown says in all three cases, the suspects charged have a history of drug abuse.
The indictments include:
– Nicholas Bethel, of Ray, was indicted on three counts of assault, six counts of endangering children, and one count of permitting child abuse.
– Lacey Grant, of Ray, faces charges for endangering children, and permitting child abuse.
– Tyler May, 22, of McArthur, was indicted on several charges including assault, child endangerment, and permitting child abuse.
– Savannah Peoples, 24, of McArthur, was indicted for assault, child endangerment, and permitting child abuse.
– Mark Thompson, 24, of McArthur, is charged with one count of involuntary manslaughter, one count of reckless homicide, one count of endangering children, and one count of permitting child abuse.
– Hannah Beckett, 23, of West Virginia, faces several charges including child endangerment, and permitting child abuse.
– Tyler Rucker, of Jackson County, Ohio, was indicted for using a minor in nudity oriented material.
“I believe these children are our future and deserve the best that all systems can offer,” said Kimes- Brown. “As a result, many people, through coordinated efforts, worked to attempt to bring security and justice to these victims. I am aware that there are many others who deserve the same. I will continue to use my best efforts and our available resources to ensure that we can provide them the safe environments that they need to heal and thrive.”
Her statement goes on to say, “As a result, at this time, I am asking that our local communities and our state come together to have a hearty discussion about our priorities in addressing the issues that face these children and the systems obligated to protect them. Further, I ask that once that discussion occurs that we take strategical action to implement our priorities and we fund them appropriately.”
AG Paxton’s Criminal Investigations Unit Makes First Sextortion Arrest
AUSTIN, TX – Attorney General Ken Paxton recently commended investigators from the Sextortion Unit in the Criminal Investigations Unit of his office for the arrest of Felipe Jesus Duron, 21, of Atascosa on federal charges of Production of Child Pornography, Coercion and Enticement of a Minor, Receipt of Child Pornography and Possession of Child Pornography.
On October 15, 2019, the Sextortion Unit, with the assistance of the attorney general’s Child Exploitation Unit and FBI San Antonio Child Exploitation Task Force, arrested Duron after a National Center for Missing and Exploited Children® (NCMEC) CyberTiplinereport revealed a 14-year-old female being coerced to send nude images to Duron via a social media account.
The investigation revealed that Duron requested and received nude images of the underage victim then threatened public exposure of these images if additional nude images were not sent. Duron also used this tactic to force the young victim into online sexual acts with other males while he recorded the activities. This case is being prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office, Western District of Texas.
“Dangerous predators can infiltrate any home through computers, tablets, or phones. Unfortunately, criminals lurking online often target our most vulnerable citizens and seek to exploit children,” said Attorney General Paxton. “I am grateful for the work of our Sextortion Unit and the dedicated law enforcement officials they work with to bring criminals like this to justice.”
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.
This case marks the first arrest by a state grant-funded investigation position in the Texas Attorney General’s Office that focuses on sexual coercion.
Attorney General Paxton urges all parents and teachers to become aware of the risks children face on the internet and take steps to help ensure their safety.

Jeffrey Epstein Has Been Arrested For Sex Trafficking Minors
I don’t mind saying this again, just so all of Our Amigos and Friends( I use both words because I am muy honrado, very honest, or shall we say A Man With Honor)hear it again, and know the truth, NONE OF THE 90,000 immigrant Latino Children that was missing in January 2016 when Sen. Rob Portman was the chairman of the Senate’s Permanent Subcommittee on Investigations, which conducted a six-month investigation into the government’s handling of the tens of thousands of children who have poured across the border which peaked in 2014, and HAVE NEVER BEEN FOUND, and was turned over to CHILD SLAVERS DURING THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, AND THEY DID NOTHING TO FIND THESE CHILDREN.
Now do you all see why these liberals DO NOT WANT THESE CHILDREN LOCKED UP WHERE THEY CAN NOT GET TO THEM.
The Facts: Jeffrey Epstein has been arrested and is being held in custody for allegedly abusing and trafficking minors.
Reflect On: How can someone like this, for so many years, avoid the justice system and continue on with his behavior? Is he the fall guy? Why aren’t any of the more powerful people being investigated for such activity? Like the Clinton’s or Prince Andrew?
The Jeffrey Epstein saga has been going on for years, anybody who is interested in who he is will quickly find out many shady facts, one of them being the fact that he is a registered sex offender. Apart from being a sex offender, there are many victims who have come forward over the years claiming that he abused them, many of whom are under age. One example, out of many is Virginia Roberts Giuffre, pictured here with Prince Andrew, who seemed to have a very close relationship with Epstein just like the Clinton’s, and many other powerful people, Roberts claimed that Epstein abused children as well as loaned them out to many of his famous friends, including Prince Andrew.
Over the past few years alone, an abundance of evidence has come out that really show how deep this type of activity goes, from your favourite actors and actresses all the way into politics, through the military-industrial complex and into the financial elite, royal families as well as the Vatican. The last article I wrote on this subject dealt with child-pornography sharing by hundreds of employees and people connected to the Pentagon. You can read more about that here.
I also recently wrote about the NXIVM case and all of the connections it has to powerful people in the form of the financial elite as well as politics. You can read those articles here and here.
The latest news regarding Epstein was that he was arrested and taken into federal custody and is expected to appear Monday in Manhattan federal court. He has been in and out of court for years, dodging a number of charges. This time, he’s been arrested for child sex trafficking. A message was sent to Epstein’s defense lawyer seeking comment. Epstein is being held at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons website.
Specifically, it deals with the sex trafficking of minors in both New York and Florida between 2002 and 2005, he is expected to appear in court tomorrow.
The arrest was made by the FBI-NYPD Crimes Against Children Task Force, and it comes almost 12 years after Epstein didn’t receive any penalty except a slap on the wrist for supposedly molesting and raping children in Florida.
The new indictment—which, according to two sources, will be unsealed Monday in Manhattan federal court—will reportedly allege that Epstein sexually exploited dozens of underage girls in a now-familiar scheme: paying them cash for “massages” and then molesting or sexually abusing them in his Upper East Side mansion or his palatial residence in Palm Beach. Epstein will be charged with one count of sex trafficking of minors and one count of conspiracy to engage in sex trafficking of minors—which could put him away for a maximum of 45 years. The case is being handled by the Public Corruption Unit of the Southern District of New York, with assistance from the district’s human-trafficking officials and the FBI.
Several of the billionaire’s employees and associates allegedly recruited the girls for Epstein’s abuse, and some victims eventually became recruiters themselves, according to law enforcement. The girls were as young as 14, and Epstein knew they were underage, according to details of the arrest and indictment shared by two officials.
David Boies, the attorney for Virginia Roberts (mentioned earlier in the article) said that “it’s been a long time coming, it’ been too long coming it is an important step towards getting justice for the many victims of Mr. Epstein’s sex trafficking enterprise.”
The Jeffrey Epstein case has been the most prominent of many examples that prove how America has a two-tiered Justice system, and that people that are wealthy and well-connected will be shielded from prosecution or given lighter sentences. But perhaps this is all changing? While the implication is that our justice system is indeed rigged and controlled by the Deep State, we may just be arriving at the stage of our ‘Great Awakening’ when we are actually ready to ‘handle the truth.’ We are certainly not as naive about what is going on behind the scenes as we once were, even in the recent past. And there seems to be a new energy around that is now supporting the search for truth.
There are more than enough examples showing how many of the people we idolize, vote for, and regard as stars, philanthropists, religious and political leaders are heavily involved in the trafficking and ritualistic abuse of men, women and young children. It’s quite overwhelming, and anybody with a clear head on their shoulders who dives into this topic will see what everybody else who is diving into it is seeing, that it’s real and far from a conspiracy.
That said, many are still in disbelief that this type of thing has been ongoing without any end for many years. The reason for that is because this entire network politics, the courts, governments and so forth. WE work for them and they are above the law.
Moves like this represent a shift in humanities consciousness where we are ready to see who are ‘leaders’ truly are and why there is a need to awaken to our individual sovereignty and personal empowerment.
Boston Man Arrested for Child Exploitation, Filming Young Boys in Bathroom
A man was arrested for filming high school boys in a Boston Latin School bathroom and charged with several counts of child exploitation Monday.
Eric Tran Thai, 36, allegedly filmed boys using urinals and bathroom stalls between February and December 2017 at a BLS restroom, a U.S. District Attorney’s Office for the District of Massachusetts statement said Monday.
Officials allegedly discovered nearly 45 secretly recorded videos of boys at the BLS bathroom after locating several folders with school names during an analysis of recovered items from searching Thai’s home in March 2018. Law officials seized several computer hard drives, cameras, thumb drives, digital storage cards and other computer devices during the search. One of the folders said “Boston Latin High School.”
We definitely feel that we’ve been compromised,” BLS senior Josh Caban said, according to CBS Boston.
BLS found the allegations “seriously disturbing” and will host a meeting with parents to discuss the incident Tuesday, CBS reported. Thai was a former BLS student.
Police began investigating Thai, 36, after two Boston College students reported being filmed in restrooms on separate occasions without their knowledge or consent on Feb. 6 and Feb. 27, 2018. Thai allegedly admitted to police to not only “taking some pictures” of a man in the neighboring stall but also said he was involved with such activity for nearly a year. He was arrested on state charges following the Feb. 27, 2018 report, according to the District of Massachusetts statement.
Each charge for sexual exploitation of children can be a mandatory minimum of 15 years and up to 30 years in prison. Each charge can also provide a minimum of five years and up to a lifetime of supervised release and up to $250,000 in fines, the District of Massachusetts statement said.
BLS serves students in grades 7-12, making it both a middle and high school, according to the school’s website.
BLS did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
The case is brought as part of Project Safe Childhood. In 2006, the Department of Justice created Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative designed to protect children from exploitation and abuse. For more information about Project Safe Childhood, please visit projectsafechildhood.gov/
