Lorena Man for Possession of Child Pornography

AUSTIN, TX  –  Attorney General Ken Paxton today announced that the Child Exploitation Unit (CEU) of his office arrested Thomas Lee Scott, 58, of Lorena, on two counts of Possession of Child Pornography, a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison per charge.

Investigators discovered child pornography being shared from a device with an IP address connected to Scott’s home in Lorena.

While executing a search warrant at his home, investigators located child pornography and seized several digital storage devices that will be examined by the attorney general’s Digital Forensics Unit.

Scott, a registered sex offender, was convicted in 1991 of child molestation in Indiana.

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

Latest trends in U.S. Child Sex Trafficking

Today we are excited to share our newest research.  Survivors have graciously allowed us to hear their stories, and in order for us all to be a part of the solution, we’re excited to share their stories with you.

Explore the Findings

Participants’ age of entry into the life

  • Youngest age of entry was less than 1-year-old
  • One in six were under the age of 12
  • Most frequently reported age is 15

Two themes in U.S. child sex trafficking emerged from this report:

  1. Technology is playing an increasing role in grooming and controlling victims of child sex trafficking.  75% of victims who entered the life in the past decade were advertised online.
  2. Less familiar forms of child trafficking, including those trafficked by family members or without a clear trafficker, are emerging.  80% of all victims under 10 were trafficked by a family member.

Without survivor input, our anti-trafficking movement risks wasting time and resources — and most importantly, endangering children.  We are truly grateful to all of the organizations and survivors that shared their stories and made this work possible.

Today is #HumanTraffickingAwarenessDay, and our research also showed that 2 out of 3 survivors never saw a help resource during their abuse.  You can change that by sharing the Human Trafficking hotline today everywhere you have a community on social media.

Spread The Word

“Survivor insights keep us grounded in the reality and complexity of their experience so that the best interventions can be developed to defend children from sexual abuse.”

CA Surgeon Solicited Victims for Decades

Brain Surgeon Who Allegedly Wanted to Create ‘Sexual Families’ to Abuse Children Facing More Charges

Additional charges have been filed against a California brain surgeon who allegedly sexually abused several children and fantasized about creating “sexual families” by impregnating women and their daughters so he could then molest his offspring.

When he appeared last week for a bail hearing in a Santa Cruz court, James Kohut, 57, learned that he will now face an 36 additional counts after investigators discovered video evidence allegedly showing the doctor abusing two young boys and a little girl with his two co-defendants, reports The Mercury News.

Kohut was arrested in May along with Rashel Brandon, 42, and an Arizona woman, Emily Stephens, 29.  Both women, who were nurses, were charged with four counts of child sexual abuse, with Kohut originally facing 11.

Kohut could end up spending the rest of his life in prison if he is convicted on all 48 counts.  He has entered not guilty pleas for all.

According to KSBW, police recovered GoPro video that was recorded between Jan. 1 and May 9 that allegedly shows all three defendants having sex multiple times with a 3-year-old and 10-year-old boy.

A second video filmed at a motel between Jan. 1 and May 9 allegedly depicts a sexual act by the three defendants with the same 10-year-old boy.  Court documents list the footage as running longer than 50 minutes.

Plus, detectives found a cell phone video recorded between Jan. 1 and May 9 that allegedly depicts the defendants sexually abusing a 5-year-old girl.

Th new charges alleged the defendants abused 5 children in all: another girl and a child whose sex is being withheld.

All three are being held on $15 million bail, according to KCRA. Stephens faces 45 felonies and Brandon faces 44 felonies linked with molestation and have both pleaded not guilty.  Their lawyers were unavailable for comment Tuesday.

The charges against Kohut include alleged abuses authorities contend occurred in 2003, 2014, 2016 and 2017.  His lawyer could also not be reached.

Only Kohut is accused of lewd acts and rape of the 10-year-old boy. He is also charged with lewd acts on a fourth victim (a girl who was younger than 14) between 2003 and 2005 as well as a fifth victim in 2014.

‘Solicited Victims for Decades’

Prosecutors in court documents allege that, “for nearly 20 years,” the traveling surgeon with a current permanent address in Arkansas has displayed “a sexual compulsion, and has solicited victims for decades.”

“Like the crimes charged here,” the document alleges, “defendant was soliciting mothers to engage in sexual acts with children.”

Among the examples cited, the prosecution referred to a Vermont woman who said she had a relationship with Kohut from 1997 to 2000.  “During that relationship, he told her that he wanted to get her pregnant so she could have a child and they could be sexual with that child,” the document alleges.

The allegations continue: “He told her that he was most interested in children between the ages of 6 to 8.  He admitted that he had been in a relationship with a woman in Florida who had a 13-year-old and a 4-year-old child.  He admitted that he had sex in front of those children, and fondled the 13-year-old.  He would explain that he wanted a ‘sexual family.’  He would ask her to recruit friends for him, and he wanted her to call him ‘daddy.’”

Court documents obtained by PEOPLE allege a woman from Australia told investigators Kohut said in 2003 “that he was searching for a woman who he can impregnate, and will then ‘raise their children sexually.’  He then asked [the woman] if she would let him impregnate and raise their child sexually.”

“Defendant told her that if he had a daughter, he would want to impregnate her at the age of 10 and raise that child sexually as well. He also admitted to having sexual encounters with other children in the past.”

“Finally, he asked her to find him children.  He wanted her to volunteer as a homeless shelter or do babysitting jobs and find children that she would molest and he would then listen to them over the phone,” the document alleges.

Kohut allegedly had affairs with both Brandon and Stephens.

The Touchables, Fish In A Barrel, Sliced Onions

How To Have A Big Successful Fish Fry

I know that I refer to CPS as The UnTouchables, but that is not the whole story.

The day the Big One didn’t get away.  I want you all to know that this is a low-life sewer rat, and I refuse to call him a fish.

Timothy DeFoggi had the position a lot of very good security people would have given almost anything to have, BUT NOT THEIR MORALS NOR ETHICS.

Former HHS BigWig is Violent Pedophile

If not for this sewer rat, and a lot more, several big fish frys would never have happened.  Actually let’s just say that the barrel would never have been so full of fish(sewer rats) to shoot, and sliced onions refer to TOR.  Timothy DeFoggi, 56, was Director of Cyber Security at HHS.

And now, The Rest of The Story.
