A federal jury in Dallas convicted an Irving man on Wednesday of paying a pimp to have sex with a 12-year-old girl, the U.S. attorney’s office said.

Brady Rodriguez-Cruz, 33, was found guilty of one count of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of children.  Authorities say he was a “john” who had sex with the victim.

In addition, he pleaded guilty to one count of possession of counterfeit documents.

His co-defendant, Luis Rivera, 19, also of Irving, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of children on Oct. 22.  He was the pimp in the conspiracy, authorities said.

Rivera met the victim and three other underage girls in Irving in December 2014.

He and his friends took the girls to an empty apartment in Irving where they stayed overnight.  The girls did not have any money and did not eat that day.

The next day, the group went to an apartment belonging to Rivera’s underage friend.  Rivera told the girls “they needed to engage in commercial sex acts to earn money for food,” authorities said.

Rivera planned to charge $100 for sex with one of the girls.  He made some calls and reached Rodriguez-Cruz, who agreed to come to the apartment.

Rodriguez-Cruz arrived with another man.  Rivera told the girls to line up so the men could pick who they wanted.

Rodriguez-Cruz selected the youngest girl — the 12-year-old victim — and had sex with her for a negotiated price of $50.

Rodriguez-Cruz had a counterfeit U.S. permanent residence card when his vehicle was pulled over by Irving police in August.  The card had his photograph but was issued in another person’s name.

Rodriguez-Cruz faces up to life in prison. A sentencing date has not been set.

Rivera is scheduled to be sentenced on Feb. 4, 2016.

Utah Has High Rates Of CA and CSA

Utah has a Child Abuse andd Child Sex Abuse problem.

Utah has a child abuse problem.

At a conference about preventing child abuse, it was reported that Utah ranks eighth in child abuse and first in sex abuse rates of children.

Kit Sumner was sexually abused as a child and he said it has affected his whole life.

“It never really goes away,” he said.  “It comes out sooner or later.”

“The abuse is not only terrible while it’s going on, it’s not only horrible in itself, but afterwards, it makes them susceptible to further victimization,” said Utah’s Attorney General Sean Reyes, who addressed the conference.

Numbers show Utah is eighth highest among all states in child abuse.  The state had 6,900 cases in 2014.  Of those, 27 percent were sex abuse, the highest rate of any state.  Only 13 percent of the cases were neglect, one of the lowest rates among all states.

Carrie Jensen of Prevent Child Abuse said Utah has tougher laws than other states and may pursue child abuse more vigorously and that might help explain the high rates.

She wants to make sure help is more available for the victim and to pursue prosecution for the perpetrators.

But child abuse is difficult to count and victims are often unable to speak out or get help.

REMEMBER: Less Than 25% Of Child Abuse Incidents Are Reported

Our Children Are Alone. Even more alone than many of you realized, as you will see in my next post.

Hello?  I’m all alone and scared.  (Quieter) oh please, please don’t let it hurt me again…. (child starting to cry)

ALONE, in a fight for their lives.  Can you hear them?

Hello?!?!?  Please help me…. (quieter, but still crying).  HELLO!!!! (Child scared and crying, almost screams, and the sound of little footsteps) oh no please….

More and more are realizing that the actual numbers of Children that are Sexually Abused are far higher than listed, but so are the number of innocent Children that are murdered every year.

HELLLLOOOO!?!?!?!

How is there only 686,000 incidents of Child Abuse every year, when there are over 3,000,000 calls that are reported.

Do you know that only 2% of the reports of Child Sexual Abuse are unsubstantiated????  Now think about the more than 75% that is never reported, so in reality, there are over 12,000,000 incidents of Child Abuse every year.

This year alone, 10,000,000 Children, ages 13-years-old and up, will contract at least one or more STIs or STDs.

If you are wondering how many of Our Children from birth to 12-years-of-age will contract one or more STIs or STDs, I honestly do not know, I have yet to find these numbers compiled….

B.A.C.A. Outraged Over Joyce Ruling

Bikers Against Child Abuse

Missouri  –  The organization, Bikers Against Child Abuse is calling the decision to release admitted child rapist Aaron Fisher, a failure of the justice system.

The nationwide organization escorts abused children to court to face their victims, and they even pay for therapy if needed.

ABC 17 News talked to two local members from the Jefferson City area who say Judge Pat Joyce failed the victims, “absolute disbelief that there could be such a failure of this child”, Ratchet said.

For their security, the two men we interviewed go by the names Ratchet and Stache.

“Basically we are a bunch of volunteers who are tired of seeing kids go through this.  We take calls from prosecuting attorneys, victim advocates, even the parent of an abused child can contact our organization, and if that child has to go through court or needs therapy, then we get involved in that child’s life”, Ratchet told ABC 17 News.

This past weekend their organization was devastated to hear the news that a child rapist walking the same streets as his victims, “After someone admits to something this heinous, and they have the testimony that he admitted to it, and then slowly but surely, the process gets skewed.  Somebody starts asking for delays and continuances, we see this all the time with defense attorneys, it’s classic.  They do it for a multitude of reasons.  They hope the child forgets what the guy looks like, or they forget some details of the case.  This one just drug on way to long.  And like I’ve said, now there is a six-year-old child out there that has to live with these memories, and now not only is the child out there but so is his abuser, or her abuser”, Ratchet said.

Rep. Miller Investigating Release Of Aaron Fisher

Aaron Fisher

Aaron Michael Fisher is an accused child rapist who confessed to this crime and Judge Patricia Joyce of Cole County let him free Friday.

Rep. Rocky Miller, Camden and Miller counties.  Aaron Michael Fisher is an accused child rapist who confessed to this crime and Judge Patricia Joyce of Cole County let him free Friday.

Aaron Fisher allegedly admitted on video to sodomizing his 5 month old child and due to too many delays, many caused by his legal counsel, Judge Joyce made the decision to release him back into society without the benefit of a trial.

“This appears to be the height of incompetency for a Circuit Court Judge in Missouri and I will be reviewing her performance to verify that it has risen to the level of impeachment,” Rep. Miller said.

The Missouri Constitution places the duty of impeachment of Judges in the hands of the House of Representatives with a trial before the Missouri Supreme Court after Articles of Impeachment are approved.
