Teen posing as 12-year-old faces child porn charge

Hurst police arrested a 17-year-old posing as a 12-year-old in an HEB ISD school for possession of child pornography.  A second man, 28, who posed as the father was also arrested on charges of possession with intent to Promote Child Pornography and Sale/Display of Harmful Material.

Police said Ricardo Javid Lugo, 17, had been enrolled at Hurst Hills Elementary School in Hurst as a 12-year-old using fake documents. Lugo enrolled in Aug. 2014 and Randy Ray Wesson, 28, posed as Lugo’s father. The two schemed to recruit potential victims from the school for both of them.

According to an arrest affidavit, Lugo and Wesson met on Instagram in late 2013 and early 2014. Wesson told investigators Lugo was unhappy at home in Juarez. Mexico and he was 12-years-old. In either late February or early March, Wesson drove to El Paso and watched Lugo walk across the border and came back to Fort Worth with Wesson.  Wesson told investigators he and Lugo have had a sexual relationship since that time.

District officials said in a release: “There was no indication that the student’s records were forged or that the student was too old to attend elementary school. The student’s behavior at school also did not raise any concerns.”

Acting on a tip from The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, police searched Wesson’s Fort Worth home and found more than 42,000 images of child pornography on computers, thumb drives and his phone. Investigators also found images of Hurst Hills students on Lugo’s phone.

Wesson faces a $3 million bond. Lugo’s bond is set at $250,000.
Detectives have reason to believe there are additional victims who haven’t been identified.

District officials said they personally contacted parents of sixth grade students on Wednesday to inform them of the news. A letter is being sent home with all Hurst Hills students.

Attorney Held on Child Sex-Abuse Charges

(CN) – An Oklahoma attorney traveled to Peru for a decade to have sex with children, federal prosecutors say in a three-count indictment.

Michael Dean Billings, 59, of Oklahoma City, was charged Oct. 22 with conspiracy to commit sex trafficking of children, conspiracy to travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual contact and conspiracy to engage in illicit sexual conduct in foreign places. The criminal indictment was unsealed Friday.

Prosecutors said Billings and others “conspired to commit sex trafficking of children by recruiting and obtaining children in Peru to engage in commercial sex acts and further conspired to travel from Oklahoma City to Iquitos, Peru.”  “Billings and others known and unknown to the grand jury, conspired and agreed with each other to knowingly, in and affecting interstate and foreign commerce, recruit, entice, harbor, transport, provide, obtain and maintain by any means [victims] knowing and in reckless disregard of the fact that force, threats of force, fraud and coercion … that the victims had not attained the age of 18 years and would be caused to engage in commercial sex acts,” the four-page criminal indictment states.

Billings flew to Peru “for the purposes of engaging in any illicit sexual conduct … with persons under 18 years of age,” the indictment states.

He was arrested Friday morning at his law office and appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Suzanne Mitchell, who ordered him held without bond pending a final detention hearing scheduled for Monday afternoon.

Billings faces up to life in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted.

 

A Caring Family

Happy-Family-silhouette-500Family Relationships Make A Family Strong  And Successful

 

Learning – Families are where we learn values, skills, and behavior. Strong families manage and control their learning experiences. They establish a pattern of home life. They select appropriate television programs. They guide their children into the world outside the home. They do not let social forces rule their family life. They involve themselves in neighborhood, school, government, church, and business in ways that support their family values. Strong families teach by example and learn through experience as they explain and execute their values.

Loyalty – Strong families have a sense of loyalty and devotion toward family members. The family sticks together. They stand by each other during times of trouble. They stand up for each other when attacked by someone outside the family. Loyalty builds through sickness and health, want and good fortune, failure and success, and all the things the family faces. The family is a place of shelter for individual family members. In times of personal success or defeat, the family becomes a cheering section or a mourning bench. They also learn a sense of give and take in the family, which helps prepare them for the necessary negotiations in other relationships.

Love – is at the heart of the family. All humans have the need to love and to be loved; the family is normally the place where love is expressed. Love is the close personal blending of physical and mental togetherness. It includes privacy, intimacy, sharing, belonging, and caring. The atmosphere of real love is one of honesty, understanding, patience, and forgiveness. Such love does not happen automatically; it requires constant daily effort by each family member. Loving families share activities and express a great deal of gratitude for one another. Love takes time, affection, and a positive attitude.

Laughter – is good family medicine. Humor is an escape valve for family tension. Through laughter we learn to see ourselves honestly and objectively. Building a strong family is serious business, but if taken too seriously, family life can become very tense. Laughter balances our efforts and gives us a realistic view of things. To be helpful, family laughter must be positive in nature. Laughing together builds up a family. Laughing at each other divides a family. Families that learn to use laughter in a positive way can release tensions, gain a clearer view, and bond relationships.

Leadership – is essential. Family members, usually the adults, must assume responsibility for leading the family. If no one accepts this vital role, the family will weaken. Each family needs its own special set of rules and guidelines. These rules are based on the family members’ greatest understanding of one another, not forces. The guidelines pass along from the adults to the children by example, with firmness and fairness. Strong families can work together to establish their way of life, allowing children to have a voice in decision making and enforcing rules. However, in the initial stages and in times of crisis, adult family members must get the family to work together.

Innocence

Implanting Indifference in Children’s Hearts

I can’t remember ever being in the wrong place at the wrong time.  This post is the first of it’s kind from this Editor, totally off the top of my head.  I can only imagine the look on the face of a certain man who writes with 2 instruments, a rapier and a 2-handed sword (wouldn’t you know it, he has a new friend that has the same style).

I was very prepared for this post early this morning, but I trusted my feelings (I had a teacher who looked as if I had thrown cold water on him,  when I said these words for the first time, he calmly set his rapier aside and said “You win, I’ll teach you Latin”).  The more research I did, the angrier I got, so here we are, shall we begin.

What are the virtues of a Good Parent?  One who accidentally gives their child a dose of morphine?  A parent who disciplines their young child by making her stand outside in the cold for 2 hours?  A parent whose babysitter is a hot car in summer temperatures?  A parent that believes drugs ruined America, and molests his children at night?  Or the lenient parents who let the child run wild, who now has an STD at a very young age? Or perhaps one of these: habitual liar, drinks alcohol, cusses every 4 words, uses drugs, violent, or somewhere down the road you find out your siblings are all dead…  Murdered Before They Were BORN.

I found something wrong with every site I selected for their “input” on virtues of a good parent, with the exception of maybe 2.  I Do Not believe in whipping a child like an animal (I purposely used these words..  I WILL warn you that if a certain person sees you mistreating an animal, you will never do it again), although if a child is given a rule from the the first moment they begin walking, like when they come in the kitchen while a meal is being prepared, and go to the hot cook stove.  If you are a wise parent, this will be an early rule, “no-no sweetheart hot hot, burn my Baby”;  sooner or later, if this continues to the point where you just got on this child for doing something else wrong, and you see the child out of the corner of your eye, glance at you and head straight for that stove, it’s action time.  What happens here is the beginning of making a spoiled brat, or a child who follows house rules, and GOD’S rules, Honor your Father and Mother..

It is NOT Good Parenting for a child to see or hear it’s parents do or say any of the above, nor see their parents do vile things.  No One on this Earth is completely innocent, but a child is as close as it gets, and it is WRONG to take this away from them.  I saw the statement “1 in 3 women will have an abortion in their lifetime”, then I noticed there is a “1 in 3 Campaign” which is a project of ADVOCATES FOR YOUTH?  Furthermore, their motto is “Rights, Respect, Responsibility?  These people are teaching Children that MURDER is OK.  I have got 1 thing to say to “ADVOCATES FOR YOUTH”, and anyone who takes the innocence of a Child.  If you believe in doing this to a Child, while you are teaching them INDIFFERENCE, teach them another language: De corde enim exeunt cogitationes malae, homicidia, adulteria, fornicationes, furta, falsa testimonia, blasphemiae:   Haec sunt, quae coinquinant hominem. Non lotis autem manibus manducare, non coinquinat hominem.
