Spokane, WA  –  Three months after their arrests in connection to a grievous child abuse case, Melvin W. Bledsoe and Joy T. Anderson remain in Kootenai County jail.

Bledsoe and Anderson, half-siblings accused of severely beating, starving and tying up Bledsoe’s 6-year-old son in the Post Falls area, both were charged with felony injury to a child in October.  During the abuse investigation, according to court documents, detectives uncovered information to support charging the two with incest.

Bledsoe’s and Anderson’s bonds have been set at $200,000 and $75,000.

Anderson, 30, and Bledsoe, 27, have pleaded not guilty.

According to Post Falls police, the boy, whom Bledsoe and Anderson took to Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in October, was suffering from a split pancreas and had scars and scabs all over his body.  The boy had several fresh wounds, dried blood on his body, ulcers on his legs and a cauliflower ear, police said.

Bledsoe and Anderson are accused of delaying the child’s treatment when he had life-threatening injuries.  Both alleged abusers face maximum sentences of life in prison.

“(The child) was hiding food, was requesting the foster mom bring food and had many indicators that he was starved for some time,” prosecuting attorney Laura McLinton said in a court hearing.  “He was eating household items, including a pillow, because he didn’t have food.”

The child, who was primarily home-schooled, according to court files, quickly gained 5 pounds after he was sent to the hospital, McLinton said.  He is in protective care.

This isn’t the first time Bledsoe has been accused of abusing the boy.

In 2012, Bledsoe pleaded guilty to felony injury of a child after slapping the boy, who was then 9 months old, according to court records.  Child Protective Services temporarily took the baby from him, according to records.

In the 2012 case, Anderson, a married mother of three at the time, lived with Bledsoe and testified against him.

In the 2017 abuse case, Anderson and Bledsoe told police that the boy sustained his injuries from being “clumsy,” saying he crashed his bike, fell down the stairs and also fell on a rock at a park.

A former neighbor in Rathdrum told police the boy often was lying face down on the bed with ropes tied around his wrists, the police report said.  The same neighbor said he sometimes witnessed Bledsoe picking up the boy and throwing him into a wall.

We Joked About Child Abuse In The 90s

Pedophile that Sexually Abused his Daughter

Then The Daughter The Convicted Pedophile Raped Speaks Up

It was 1996 when police arrested Jim and Justine and charged them with prolonged sexual abuse and exploitation of their 13-year-old daughter, Amanda.

At the time, Jim claimed that he didn’t think he was doing any harm to his daughter, and that in those days, child molestation was considered “something people joke about” — citing comic book “Chester The Molester” as supposed cultural evidence of this.

But the repercussions of that abuse — which began when his daughter was just 11 — would haunt Amanda into her adulthood, sending her life sideways as she attempted to self-medicate and escape the pain.

Now, 20 years later, Amanda and her biological parents meet again — Amanda for an apology, her parents (particularly her father) forgiveness.

Appearing on Wednesday’s episode of “Dr. Phil,” Amanda says her parents would routinely photograph her in “provocative” situations and video tape her performing various sexual acts— sometimes with her father — with the plan to sell the tapes across the world.

She tells Dr. Phil: “Jim told me with the money we could make, I could go to college”

Amanda adds that she never saw any of her supposed earnings.  Her mother, on stage with Amanda already, begins weeping, presumably overwhelmed with guilt and regret at her part in the abuse.

Then Dr. Phil brings out Amanda’s father.  The audience is silent as he walks out, the tension at its peak.

Amanda starts in on Jim, at first tenuously, seeming to barely contain her rage:

“Where to begin?….  How could you?”

Amanda begins to ask questions directly to her father — reluctantly, at first — saying she’s “dreamed of this moment,” but adding:

“Truthfully I would have preferred if you had been six feet under.”

Jim says to Amanda as she stares at him in anger and disbelief that he’s ashamed that he only remembers abusing Amanda four or five times when it was obviously a regular routine in the family.

Looking straight at his daughter, he says:

“It should have been burned into my memory as much as it was into yours.”

As Amanda recounts how her life spiraled out of control into adulthood — addiction, work as a topless dancer, even the creation of an alter ego to escape the pain she was experiencing — it’s clear that the memories left significant scars with lasting impact.

But the most chilling moments in the episode come from a one-on-one interview with Jim taped earlier, in which the former convict claims that during the early 1990’s, “sexually abusing children were things that people winked and joked about.”

Unbelievably, he goes on to complain that he’d been “exploited, taken advantage of [and] beaten up,” in prison.  He also protested that he had never been aroused by his daughter, but rather was interested in the “mechanics.”

But Dr. Phil doesn’t pull punches responding to claims that Jim didn’t know what he was doing to his daughter, saying directly to Amanda:

“To suggest that he was in an environment where parents didn’t know it wasn’t okay to rape their children is insulting your intelligence, it’s insulting to your experience, it is a complete insult to this entire experience between him and you.  Now he’s either that naive, or he’s just thumbing his nose at you because that is an idiotic statement.”

To watch the entire episode, which aired on Wednesday of this week, check Dr. Phil’s website for listings.

The New York City Alliance Against Sexual Assault, which collects statistics nationally, reports that 46% of children who are sexually abused are the victims of family members.

It also reports that 61% of American rape victims are raped before the age of 18, and unbelievable 29% of all rapes occurred before the victim was 11.

Steven Tyler Launches Janie’s Fund to Help Child Abuse Victims

Steven Tyler has launched a new philanthropic initiative that aims at raising money and awareness to help girls who have suffered sexual abuse, the singer announced today.  For Janie’s Fund, a nod to Aerosmith’s 1989 hit “Janie’s Got a Gun,” Tyler will partner with Youth Villages to bring hope and healing to those victims of neglect and abuse.

On Pump’s “Janie’s Got a Gun,” Tyler tackles the issue of child abuse and incest in the song’s lyrics, and the creation of Janie’s Fund has been a longtime goal of Tyler’s.  “As a father and grandfather, I want to focus my energy on things that really matter and leave behind something else in this crazy world along with my music,” Tyler said in a statement.  “I am starting Janie’s Fund to give a voice to the millions of victims who haven’t had one and encourage everyone to join me on this mission.”

To help plant a foundation for Janie’s Fund, Tyler has launched a Prizeo page filled with unique rewards for those who donate, ranging from t-shirts for $50 “Star” donors to $25,000 “Big Kahuna” donors who will receive a “VIP Mardi Gras Experience” with Tyler. There’s also a Janie’s Angel reward for donors of $75,000 that will include “dinner with Steven Tyler and receive one of his iconic scarf enrobed mic stands (with a working mic) as well as a limited edition signed and numbered framed copy of the ‘Janie’s Got a Gun’ lyric sheet.”

All donors will be entered into a raffle to win the “Ultimate VIP Rock Experience with Steven Tyler” prize, which will include walking down the red carpet with the rocker at his upcoming solo album’s release party as well as the opportunity to hang out with Tyler backstage.

Tyler adds on the Janie’s Fund Prizeo page, “Now…We can’t undo what’s been done by abuse in this country…but we CAN let these girls know they are loved, get them the help they need, and assure them that there is MUCH LIGHT at the end of the tunnel.

Ohio Man Gets Life Terms For CSA

The Child is Lori Anderson’s Child, who is an adult now.

COLUMBUS, OH – A western Ohio man convicted of abusing a child over a six-year period likely will spend the rest of his life in prison.

A judge in Columbus on Friday sentenced 54-year-old Charles Wycuff to four life terms plus 145 years following his conviction this week on 43 counts of rape, sexual battery and gross sexual imposition.

The state Attorney General’s Office says Wycuff, of Wapakoneta (wah-puh-kuh-NET’-uh), sexually abused the child from 1997 to 2003.

Wycuff and his ex-wife, 51-year-old Lori Anderson, were arrested last year after an investigation.  Anderson, who was an elementary school teacher in Auglaize County at the time, pleaded guilty earlier this month to three counts of sexual battery.  She’ll be sentenced in November.

The cases were moved to Columbus because of pretrial publicity.

CHILDREN’S LIVES MATTER!!!!

STATE LAW MAKERS PROTECT CHILD PREDATORS

Laws that would make Child Predators pay for the crimes they committed against Our Children are ignored and never enacted, or if by chance a Law d‎oes make it, it is watered down so far that it should be an insult to WE THE PEOPLE.

Law Makers have empowered CHILD PREDATORS to Sexually Abuse several generations of the same families.

Now with the Supreme Court’s out-of-bounds ruling AGAINST OUR CHILDREN, and with none of our Law Makers crying PERVERTED FOUL, there is no possible way to protect any Child now, as is a parent’s duty, just as there is no way for a Child to retain any innocence and hope for a normal life.

This administration has shown nothing but contempt for our laws. But in doing so they have taken away all freedoms from everyone except the mentally challenged deviates that practice what not one‎ breed of animal, fish, or fowl practices on Earth.

BUT, as if that wasn’t enough, now you poison. Our Children…. this is post #1 of #3
