‘Low risk’ registered sex offender arrested after San Angelo child makes outcry of abuse
SAN ANGELO, TX – A San Angelo man, previously convicted for indecency with a child in 1995, has been arrested in connection to a recent child sex abuse case, according to court documents obtained Monday, May 16.
A child, 11, made an outcry of sexual abuse and named a San Angelo man. The child stated the man had inappropriately touched them multiple times between Jan. 5, 2020 through Nov. 29, 2020, in San Angelo, according to the arrest affidavit.
During an interview with investigators, the man admitted to what the child reported, records state.
Deputies arrested Reymundo Luna, 61, on suspicion of continuous child sex abuse of a child younger than 14 years old. He remained in Tom Green County Detention Center with no bond listed as of 4:45 p.m. Monday, according to online jail records.
Luna previously pleaded guilty to four counts of indecency with a 9-year-old child in Tom Green County in 1995, for which he received 10 years deferred adjudication, a type of probation that could have helped him avoid conviction if he followed the rules of the agreement.
That probation was revoked in 2005 due to unsupervised meetings with a child younger than 17, being within 1,000 feet of a place children congregated and not going to counseling. He was then sentenced to 4 years in prison.
The Texas Public Sex Offender Registry listed Luna as “low risk. ” This means he “pose(d) a low threat to the community in terms of engaging in further criminal sexual conduct,” according to nealdavislaw.com.
Protect Your Children From Predators: The Secret Password – Please Pass It Forward!
By: Kait King
I am very proud to introduce Ms Kait King, a True Writer Extraordinaire.
I don’t mind telling everyone that I have been Blessed every way possible, since starting that little one page gift to Google+ and all it’s users very near 8 years ago, and Ms Kate King is one of those Blessings, a very Large Blessing to be exact.
Unlike all the times I have shared this, apparently the whole original story is no longer available on Ms King’s site, The Writer’s Blogk, but please go there and read Ms King’s work! THANK YOU SO MUCH Ms Kait King!
I met Ms King shortly after I opened our website. I can tell you what I remember from back then: Ms King was a very good writer, and well educated. But I was glad that I wasn’t standing in front of her, because I was humbled to tears. This very special Lady was as good a Parent and Mother, as any that has ever walked this earth… and I stand by my words today. There was only one thing that struck me as odd, she was working on a project with the name of “The 3 Pigs”.
Thank You all for reading, and when you are finished reading this unforgetable story, please do as Ms King wishes: Please Pass It On! Robert StrongBow
A copy of a letter I sent to all of the primary schools to save children – simple and super effective! Please pass it on
My son is 29 years old now and it has always amazed me at how many parents through those many years, and even now, who have no idea about the concept of the Secret Password.
I used to work as a National Intelligence Support Officer for the police. I have had projects that have highlighted the danger our children are in while getting to and from school and this is an issue which is not going to go away. I have a simple solution that may help to keep children safer than they are now.
My son was five and starting school, and with my background and experience I was very aware of the dangers of kerb crawlers and people who would snatch kids from off the street. So I devised this password plan, my son picked the word – at the time he believed he was allergic to zucchinis’ as he detested them so much so that became our Secret Password.
This password meant that if I was unable to pick him up from school and had to send someone whom he was not familiar with, or a stranger altogether even, if they knew that Secret Password it was ok to get in the car and go with them. If the person did not know the Secret Password my son was to drop his school backpack and run like the devil was after him, (which would be the case), straight back into the school grounds and to the principal’s office.
He only had to use this once, and because he did run, he is still here and I am not writing this letter to you out of a sad and broken story where the solution is all but too late.
But I write this out of a realisation that something so very simple could help to protect children, our children, for they are all of our children and we all need to be responsible for helping to keep them safe. I hope you find some benefit in this little gem and hand it out to all parents and caregivers and tell all that you can please, so that this safety net is in place. I thank you for your time to read this and thank you also, for teaching our children and caring for them.
With the most sincerest intent and with regards Kait King, BA Crim.
AG Paxton Sends Letter to ALI Opposing Revisions that Benefit Sexual Predators
AUSTIN, TX – Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton joined a multistate letter to the American Law Institute (ALI) objecting that their proposed amendments to the Model Penal Code (MPC) would weaken laws used to prosecute and prevent sex crimes. Paxton and 37 attorneys general had previously sent a letter to the ALI that resulted in positive updates to the MPC, but additional interim revisions passed by the ALI Council have raised important new concerns.
The U.S. Department of Justice, the National Association of Attorneys General, and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children have also criticized the MPC revisions, because they make it more difficult for law enforcement to protect victims while also creating loopholes that sexual predators can exploit to avoid consequences for their acts of depravity.
“The ALI is supposed to work to improve the law, but their proposed changes would cater to criminals while silencing victims of abuse and human trafficking,” Attorney General Paxton said. “I will never stop fighting for the safety and wellbeing of our most vulnerable and victimized Texans, and I call upon the ALI not to weaken our laws to the advantage of those who commit sex crimes.”
Hilton’s current commercial “Make an Entrance with the Hilton App” attempts to normalize sin by featuring two men together with a young boy. The two dads are shown walking through the hotel lobby and to their room while one dad carries the sleeping toddler. This ad is inappropriate on so many levels and is clearly attempting to desensitize viewers. Hilton should avoid aiming to please a small percentage of customers while pushing away conservative customers.
Promoting same sex relationships has nothing to do with marketing their company.Yet Hilton wants to make it clear where they stand on this controversial topic, instead of remaining neutral in the culture war.One Million Moms continues to stand up for biblical truth, which is very clear in Romans 1:26-27 about this particular type of sexual perversion.
One Million Moms must remain diligent.Scripture says multiple times that homosexuality is wrong, and God will not tolerate this sinful nature.
Hilton attempting to redefine the family crosses a line Hilton should have never crossed.There is concern about the way this advertisement is pushing the LGBTQ agenda, but an even greater concern is that the commercial is airing when children are likely to be watching television.To make matters worse, this advertisement has aired during family viewing time such as football games and primetime.
If you agree that this ad is inappropriate, sign our petition urging Hilton to pull its “Two Gay Dads” commercial immediately. And please share this with your friends and family.
Mistrial declared in case against Backpage.com founders
PHOENIX, AZ – A federal judge on Tuesday declared a mistrial in the case involving prostitution and money laundering charges against founders of the classified site Backpage.com, noting that none of the defendants have been charged with child sex trafficking, despite it being mentioned several times by prosecutors during the trial.
Judge Susan Brnovich for the U.S. District Court for the District of Arizona said that repeated references to child sex trafficking by both prosecutors and witnesses brought by the government “is something that I can’t overlook and will not overlook,” according to The Associated Press.
Brnovich had said before the start of the trial that while she would permit evidence indicating that individuals were trafficked on the website, prosecutors could not focus on specific details of alleged abuse.
“It seemed the government abused that leeway,” she said, adding that lingering on details of abuse brings a “whole new emotional response from people,” potentially impacting the integrity of the trial.
Former Backpage.com owners Michael Lacey and James Larkin, as well as four other company employees, have been accused by federal prosecutors of intentionally selling ads for sex on the website.
While prosecutors have said that many of the victims of the alleged sex trafficking were children, child sex trafficking is not among the charges facing the former employees.
All six of the defendants have pleaded not guilty to charges of facilitating prostitution, and four of them, including Lacey and Larkin, have also pleaded not guilty to money laundering.
Prosecutors have argued that Backpage generated roughly $500 million from the alleged prostitution scheme between the time it was first launched in 2004 and when it was shut down by the federal government in 2018, according to the AP.
Lacey and Larkin, who founded the Phoenix New Times and held ownerships in other weekly news outlets, have maintained that they did not allow ads for sex, and claimed that they attempted to use various tools to remove the allegedly unauthorized ads that appeared on their site.
The news agency reported that Brnovich has set a new trial date for Oct. 5.
In April 2018, Backpage pleaded guilty to human trafficking charges in Texas, and then-CEO Carl Ferrer pleaded guilty to money laundering charges in California.
Months later, Dan Hyer, the sales director for the website, pleaded guilty to conspiracy charges, admitting that he was involved in a scheme to give free advertising to sex workers in an attempt to keep them away from competitor platforms.
