Medina County, TX  –  A Medina County man accused of sexually assaulting five former foster children, including several in Bexar County, took in more than 180 young girls over a five year period, officials said.

That leads investigators to believe there could be numerous other victims who have yet to come forward.

“It’s not a question about whether there are more,” said Medina County Sheriff Randy Brown.  “It’s just about how many.”

One additional victim has already come forward since news broke Wednesday of 58-year-old Miguel Briseno’s arrest, Brown said, bringing the unofficial total to six victims.  A charge has not been filed in the sixth alleged case.

Briseno, who is currently being held in the Medina County Jail on a $500,000 bond, was a licensed foster parent from 2005 through 2010, Brown said.  During that time he lived in both Bexar and Medina counties.

Over the course of the five years, more than 180 girls passed through his care, Brown said.  At various times, Briseno was reportedly taking care of up to 12 girls at once.

Brown said Child Protective Services contracted with a third-party company, who has not yet been publicly identified, to place the girls in Briseno’s home.

“Those girls were taken from some environment and then you have some jackass like him abusing these girls that already have troubles,” Brown said.  “I’m aggravated at the whole system.  I’m aggravated at the company that placed these girls.  It was a money-making deal, the way they were running those girls through there like livestock.  It wasn’t about making a better world for them.  They were making a profit off them.”

Representatives of Child Protective Services could not immediately comment on the relationship with the company.

Two of the charges against Briseno are out of Medina County, and the remaining three originated in Bexar County.  Brown said Briseno first became a foster parent while living in Von Ormy, where the alleged assaults occurred, and later moved to Devine, Texas, in Medina County.

Wednesday’s arrest was not the first time Briseno was arrested on child sex abuse charges.  In April 2013, the Medina County Sheriff’s Office arrested him on a charge of solicitation to commit sexual assault of a child.  The arrest came after one of Briseno’s foster children said he had sexually assaulted her in August 2012, when he no longer had a foster license, Brown said.

It is not clear why Briseno did not have a license after 2010 and how Briseno still had foster children in his care two years later, though investigators discovered Briseno had attempted to move his foster parent license into his wife’s name, Brown said.

“It’s not a loophole, it’s just downright wrong,” Brown said.

Briseno pleaded guilty in September 2015 to a reduced charge of attempted assault, a Class B misdemeanor.  Brown said investigators and prosecutors had difficulty securing testimony against Briseno.

He was sentenced to 180 days in jail, though county officials couldn’t confirm how much time he was actually incarcerated.

Brown said his office, as well as other investigating agencies like the Texas Rangers, plan to look into the unnamed third-party company responsible for placing the children in Briseno’s care.  They’re also working to determine whether his wife could be held criminally responsible.

All of Briseno’s reported victims were teenagers at the time of the alleged abuse.  They’re now in their 20s.  For investigators, the next step is to identify the dozens of remaining girls who were ever in Briseno’s care.

“We don’t know where they’re at,” Brown said.

“If you’ve stayed at that house, if you were a foster child [in Briseno’s care], please contact us,” he said.  “Whether you feel something inappropriate happened or not, we’d still like to talk to you.”

Victims are asked to call 210-335-8477 if they have any information on Briseno’s alleged abuse.

Our Veterans are Heroes!!!!

How can Sex Offenders be given presidence over Our Veterans????

How can Sex Offenders be Security Guards at any Veterans Facility, much less mistreat Our Veterans and even manufacture evidence that is used against Our Veterans????

The New England Center For Homeless Veterans is NOT TAKING CARE OF OUR VETERANS!!!!

“Many, many veterans who really need help do not go there because the conditions are so bad.”

“Unsafe, unsanitary conditions found at New England Center for Homeless Veterans”

The place is infested with bedbugs, there are also roaches in the kitchen, rats in the basement, and mice.

Also, 32 men who live or work at the veterans shelter are registered sex offenders, most of them Level 3s, who are considered the most likely to re-offend.

Two Imprisoned For Child Porn Face More Time

Seagoville, Texas Federal Facility

Two inmates in Seagoville’s federal facility are accused of having drawings of girls engaging in sex acts.  Such depictions were outlawed in 2003.

Two men already in the Seagoville federal prison for child pornography convictions have been slapped with new charges of possession of obscene material for having drawings and writings showing children being sexually abused.

Experts say that such offenders are using pencil and paper to fulfill their urges while behind bars, where the inmates pass the amateur comic books among themselves and sell them.

Seagoville inmates Danny Borgos, 27, and John R. Farrar, 56, are accused of having several drawings of girls depicted as being as young as 6.

A 2003 federal obscenity law makes it illegal to possess child pornography drawings, and a federal appeals court in 2008 upheld the nation’s first conviction under that law.

For a child pornography charge, the children have to be real.  But drawings, paintings, writings, sculptures and other depictions of children being sexually abused fall under the obscenity law, known as the Protect Act, if they are shown to lack serious scientific, literary, artistic or political value.

But some question whether the law goes too far.

James Cantor, Ph.D, an associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Toronto and an international expert on pedophilia, said child pornography laws are intended to protect actual people.

“When talking about a drawing, who’s the victim?” he asked.  “We feel these are icky.  But icky is not a real reason to pass a law.”

Drawings circulated

Borgos was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison in Dallas last month for having the comic book.  That was more time than he got for having actual child pornography.

He was serving a five-year sentence for a 2013 conviction out of New York for possessing and distributing child pornography.  In that case, Borgos discussed online his “desire to rape prepubescent children and the excitement he derives from the children’s pain,” court records show.

That prior case boosted the statutory minimum sentence for the new conviction.

A prison guard was about to search a cell in October 2014 when he saw Borgos and another inmate sitting at a table in front of the cell, according to court records.

Borgos had a 37-page comic book that said “Kidskin COMIXXX” on the cover.  The title was “Three Daughters Pt. 1.”  The comic book featured drawings of three girls, ages 6, 9 and 11, who are engaged in sexually explicit conduct, with captions that tell a lurid story.

Borgos told prison authorities the book was his and that another inmate made the drawings for him and offered to draw more.

More recently, on May 5, Farrar was found at the Seagoville prison with at least six drawings, some titled “Family Night” and “Extra Credit,” which showed young girls being sexually abused, according to federal court records.  He was indicted on Nov. 4.

Federal authorities also seized two books of writings about the sexual abuse of minors from Farrar.  One of them was hidden inside the cover of a paperback book, court records show.

Farrar, a Massachusetts downtown revitalization consultant, was convicted in that state in 2007 of possessing and transporting child pornography and sentenced to 10 years in prison.  In that case, Farrar told an undercover FBI agent online that “I love them all, infant to 13,” court records show.

It’s unclear whether similar comics, drawings and writings are being distributed among other inmates in the Seagoville prison.  The Bureau of Prisons declined to comment on the cases, “due to this matter currently being in litigation.”

Local attorneys say they can’t remember the last time someone in North Texas was prosecuted under the 2003 federal obscenity law for having child pornography drawings.

But Amy Phenix, Ph.D., a forensic psychologist in California who provides expert court opinions on sex offender evaluation, said such material is not unusual in a prison setting.

“They want something to arouse themselves,” Phenix said.
Lyn Williams, training director for the Austin-based Texas Association Against Sexual Assault, said such material would be a “valuable commodity in prison.”  For some, it’s like getting a joint or heroin, he said.

“It’s reinforcing their behavior,” he said about the comics.  “That’s not going to help when they get out.”

But Cantor said government shouldn’t pass a law based on an “emotional gut reaction.”

“Good public policy comes from minimizing and eliminating harm,” Cantor said.

Legal precedent

The question of the legality of child sex comics has been settled in federal court, where First Amendment arguments have consistently failed.

In 2005, Dwight Whorley of Virginia became the first person convicted under the 2003 obscenity law.  A federal appeals court upheld the conviction in 2008.

Whorley used a state computer to download Japanese anime cartoons showing young girls having sex with men.  Whorley, who spent time in jail for previous child pornography charges, got 20 years in prison.

In another noted case, an Iowa comic book collector, Christopher Handley, was arrested after Japanese manga comic books showing children being sexually abused were mailed to him.

Handley was convicted in 2010 under the federal obscenity law after unsuccessfully challenging it during his trial.  He did not have a criminal record and was given six months in prison.  It was the first time someone was sent to prison for owning comic books, according to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund.

His attorney argued that there was no evidence the drawings represented any actual people and that they were “purely a product of the artist’s imagination,” court records show.

Handley’s attorney said that fictional characters in cartoons have no age.  He said the indictment violated the First and Fifth Amendments.

But U.S. District Judge James E. Gritzner said in his ruling that Handley was confusing child pornography laws with obscenity laws. Child pornography offenses require the depiction of an actual minor while obscenity offenses do not, he said.

“Obscene materials are afforded no protection under the First Amendment,” Gritzner said in his ruling.

I Am My Brother’s Keeper

Good afternoon, I wanted to prepare you for my next post, which I would not have taken seriously a year ago, but as things stand now Our Circle must be vigilant.

I want to urge everyone of you to please focus on every post and article that deals with Child Maltreatment in any form from this point on.  The media will sugar-coat out-and-out LIES, and unless you are totally focused on what is being conveyed, they will cloak the real dirt to the point that a major percentage of the readers will miss what is most important.

“Normal” human beings do not cross certain lines, and I am talking about people who have committed crimes also.  There are only a select few that are truly “DARK”, and I mean individuals that like to inflict pain and suffering.

Do NOT be mislead, people who are sympathetic to Child Predators, and especially Child Predators themselves would have you believe that it was a one time thing if they are caught.

A sex offender will molest an average of 120 victims.

Psychologists would have you believe that they, through their work, have been helping keep kids safe for years by treating sex offenders.

To this I would have to ask if they just treated “these poor SUB-HUMANS” that just finished with their 120th CHILD VICTIM.

There are 3,000,000 reports of Child Maltreatment every year, yet far less than 25% of the incidents are ever reported.  This translates to over 12,000,000 incidents of Child Maltreatment per year.

This year alone, 10,000,000 Children, ages 13 and up, will contract at least one or more STI or STD.  This number is not included in those 3,000,000 reports.

I have yet to locate a compiled list for the number of Children, ages Birth to 12, that will contract an STI or STD.

This year alone there will be at least 2,000,000 runaways.  At least 1 in 6 runaways will fall into Child Sex Traffickers hands.  This translates into 333,340 Children that will fall into Child Sex Traffickers hands, AND BE RAPED.

The average victims age is 11 to 14, and the average life span of a victim is 3 to 7 years.

Incidentally, the 333,340 Children are not included in the initial 3,000,000 reports of Child Maltreatment.

So I want you to think about how many of these Children are being protected by a Psychologist, and I believe you are like me in one respect, and that is I DO NOT WANT ANY CHILD PREDATORS OR SEX OFFENDERS NEAR A CHILD.

Reno Man Gets 2 Life Sentences For CSA

Marcos Martin-Montoya, 35

Reno, Nevada  –  A Reno man was sentenced on Monday to serve two life sentences in prison after he plead guilty to sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl.

Marcos Martin-Montoya, 35, plead guilty earlier this year to two counts of lewdness with a child under the age of 14, officials with the Washoe County District Attorney’s Office said in a news release.

Each count carries a penalty of life in prison with the possibility of parole after serving a minimum of 10 years.

“The sentences handed down today are consecutive, guaranteeing that the very earliest Martin-Montoya could be eligible for release would be after he has served 20 years,” officials said in a statement.

Authorities had received a report that Martin-Montoya was inappropriately touching the 12-year-old in early May. Investigators later found that the girl had been sexually abused by him since 2009.

“He was arrested that same day,” officials said.

A multidisciplinary team from the Washoe County Child Advocacy Center were investigating the case. That included detectives from the Reno Police Department, authorities with the Washoe County Social Services and prosecutors with the Washoe County District Attorney’s Office.

“The work done by this exceptional team of prosecutors, detectives and child advocacy professionals continues to better serve our community’s most vulnerable victims of crime,” District Attorney Chris Hicks said in a statement on Monday.

The Child Advocacy Center opened in June 2014 and has conducted more than 300 interviews with child victims.
