FL - Sex Offender in Jail After Failing to Register Emails

Original Article

This just backs up what we and many others have said for years. If a person is intent on committing a crime online, looking for child porn or social networks, they will. Violating someone's constitutional right of privacy for false security, is always bad, and unconstitutional also, if the Constitution was worth anything still.


By Alex Tiegen

A registered sex offender living in Land O’ Lakes remained behind bars Thursday on charges related to email addresses that he is accused of creating and using to access child pornography.

The man, 38, was arrested Wednesday on 17 charges of failure to register as a sex offender, according to a Pasco County Sheriff’s Office detective.

The man failed to register 17 email addresses to law enforcement but it is unknown how many were being used to watch and download child pornography, according to Kevin Doll, spokesman for Sheriff's Office. Registering email addresses is requirement in Florida for sex offenders. The pornography accusations are under investigation by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

The man’s classification as a sex offender stems from a conviction of a lewd and lascivious act charge in Hillsborough County in 2000. He most recently signed a notice of his responsibilities as a sex offender May 10, 2011. It was his 10th, according to the detective’s report.

Detectives discovered the IP addresses of the man’s registered email address matched the IP of his unregistered e-mail address. The man told detectives during a non-custodial interview that he created and used the unregistered e-mail addresses.
- Well this was just a lucky break, because many ISP's rotate IP addresses, and that means not everyone gets and keeps the same address.  I am sure they had no clue what his IP address was, based on an email address, unless the ISP he uses assigns IP addresses and never changes them, which I doubt.

Arrested Wednesday was [name withheld], who lives on Saint Lukes Road in Land O’ Lakes. He is in Land O’ Lakes Jail pending $170,000 bail.

Jaycee Dugard’s Take on Overprotective Parents

Original Article from FreeRangeKids


Hi Folks! I am inspired by what a reader named Allison sent me on Facebook. You may be, too. — L

Dear Free-Range Kids: I’m reading Jaycee Dugard’s book “A Stolen Life,“ and in it, she says:

It still scares me, the fact that I can’t protect my daughters from everything. What mother wouldn’t want to protect their child from the dangers of the world? But I have to choose to believe they will both be okay and realize that sometimes when we shelter our children too much, we are really protecting ourselves.

I don’t think anyone would ever question Jaycee for being overprotective of her children, given what she went through for 18 years, so this paragraph just really states so eloquently what many of us feel every day. — Allison

I am also struck by the fact that she frames it as a choice: She could appease her own fear by seriously constricting her daughters’ childhood, or she can live with that uneasy feeling for the sake of letting those girls enjoy what she never got to. Kudos to a brave and generous mom. – L.

IA - Hundreds of Iowa inmates could be released on ruling

Original Article



The Iowa Department of Corrections will have to parole or discharge hundreds and possibly thousands of Iowa inmates early - some of them dangerous - because of a recent Iowa Supreme Court ruling, a state official confirmed Thursday night.

Fred Scaletta, a spokesman for the department, said the department is recalculating the sentences of roughly 3,200 convicts whose time under corrections supervision is affected by the ruling last month. Officials plan to inform the Board of Corrections today at a meeting in Fort Dodge about the effects of the court decision.

The Iowa Supreme Court ruled unanimously in July that state law mandated that a convicted sex offender should receive credit for time served while under home supervision, even though he violated probation while at home.

[name withheld], then 37, had been living at home for about a year in 2006 when a probation officer discovered he had met several times with a 16-year-old girl.

The officer, acting on a police tip, found the girl naked under his bed, the same day the officer had warned [name withheld] to stay away from children.

The Iowa Supreme Court said state law clearly states any defendant committed to the state Department of Corrections for supervision "who has probation revoked shall be given credit for such time served."

Scaletta said that decision now applies to all defendants whose probation was revoked, regardless of their crime.

"We just don't know how many there will be. We're having to do each defendant by hand," he said. "We're on it. We want to get this done as quickly as we possibly can."

The department also must notify the defendants' victims.

Some sex offenders will have to serve special supervision sentences after their release.

Iowa is one of more than 20 states that created the sentences to track sex offenders after their release from prison using corrections officers and technology such as GPS monitors.
