R Kelly and the continuing trial of sex with minors

R Kelly is still going threw it with the trial of the decade. Where he gave new charges in his sex abuse and having cranial knowledge of a minor.

It is unbelievable how this man has gotten away from charges this long with abusing the trust of his fan base by going after teenage girls for so long. I feel that the justice system have failed these children and there parents for having a super star get away with abusing the trust of his fans .But you have to ask yourself where were these kids parents at and why did they let such things go on for so long?

The sister that helped R Kelly out of jail with a 100,000 dollar bond is now asking for her money back and the court as well as the judge said no to me Love to regain and collect her money for bailing out R Kelly.News report say that R Kelly jump bail and was on the run for a while we’re law enforcement caught up with the star and arrested him and that is why Ms Love lost the bail money she put up to free the super star singer.

R Kelly is one of the biggest singer of our time and probably could have been a legend in music history along side people like Micheal Jackson and Witney Houston but all people are going to remember about R Kelly is the teenage sex abuse and the lives this man destroyed for so long,it is a shame!

R Kelly produced and sang songs like i “I believe I can fly” a song that have been heard in churches all over the United States and beyond.

We do not know how long Kelly trial is going to be or if he might get off or what but this story in my thoughts is bigger then the OJ trial with so many families and lives this man changed for ever.

It is become clear that our super star singers are being allowed to carrying on with there sick fantasies for a time until law enforcement seems to think it time for there sick fantasies to come to an end.For black people it seems like a payment do for the honor to become rich and famous in the music industry. It like a shaming they have to go threw when there contract with the Devil is up.

There is no doubt in my mind there is a sickness in the music industry where they allow such things to happen like what Rkelly is accused of doing .

Mean while Rkelly is reported to be broke and radio stations are taken his music out of there line up by mass with out the man being convicted of any crime yet,unspecified you ask me!!!!I

R Kelly is being held in jail and his property is being auctioned off. If he he convicted of these crimes it is a good chance that Rkelly may never see the light of day again.

Jealous uncle, 44, ‘follows home and shoots dead his 21-year-old niece after having secret affair with her behind wife’s back’

Florida man is being accused of shooting dead his much-younger niece with whom he was having a secret sexual affair, police said. 

Stephen Myers, 44, allegedly followed 21-year-old Winnie Mendoza home before killing her at around 8 a.m. on July 26, according to Miami-Dade police.

Myers, who is married to Mendoza’s aunt, said he’s been having an illicit affair with her for the past two years. 

Officials said that as Mendoza got out of her car, the suspect approached her with a firearm and demanded to know who she had been with all night.  

Winnie Mendoza, 21, seen in Facebook photos, was fatally shot by her jealous uncle outside her Miami-Dade home last Friday morning

Stephen Myers, 44, is married to Mendoza’s aunt, 34-year-old Luisa Amanda Mendoza, with whom he has two sons (they are seen in a Facebook photo)

Mendoza’s mother-in-law reportedly found her body lying in the driveway in front of her house.

Officials said they recovered a gun at the scene. 

Myers drove home and confessed what he had done to his wife, 34-year-old Luisa Amanda Mendoza, WPLG Local10reported.

The couple have two sons, police said. 

The suspect fled his home in the Keys Landing community in Homestead but was tracked down by police soon after. 

He later gave officers a full confession about the shooting, the arrest report said. 

According to the Miami-Dade Police Department, Myers said he was jealous because he believed Mendoza had spent Thursday night with someone else.  

Myers, who appeared before a judge on Saturday, has been charged with second-degree murder and was booked into Turner Guilford Correctional Center under no bond.

‘The defendant would pose a threat to society given the fact that he has exhibited violence with a firearm,’ a prosecutor said at the hearing. 

The station reported that prosecutors have his recorded confession and detectives have the gun that they believe he used to kill Mendoza. 

His next hearing is set for next month.

A sextraffic sting of dozens of people arrested during the final four 4/18/2019

(UPI) — More than 50 people were arrested for attempting to solicit children for sex or trafficking victims in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area this month during the NCAA Final Four, authorities said.

Twenty-eight people were from trafficking situations during the operation, including one minor, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said in a statement Wednesday. The five-day sting netted 47 felony arrests for soliciting a minor or prostitutes under 16. Eleven people were arrested on probable cause for sex trafficking.

“This operation is an example of the aggressive steps necessary to stop traffickers and johns who buy and sell people for sex in our communities,” BCA Supt. Drew Evans said.

Officials said undercover agents posed as minors or sex buyers on social media platforms and arranged a meeting place.

“While the eyes of the basketball world were focused on the court at the U.S. Bank Stadium, some were attempting to hide in the shadows of our great community, trafficking and exploiting women and girls, inflicting unimaginable physical and emotional harm, and profiting from pain,” St. Paul Police Chief Todd Axtell said.

Several victims advocate organizations including Alexandria House, Breaking Free and The Linkhave helped the women who were rescued.

A similar sting operation was done in January and February for the Super Bowl in Atlanta. Police there arrested 169 people over an 11-day period. 

8 people was indicted out of an apartment buildind 4/28/2019

READING, Pa. – The raid of a rooming house in Reading last month has led to the indictments of eight alleged gang members on federal sex trafficking charges.

The U.S. attorney’s office in Philadelphia filed the indictment Thursday, accusing the eight suspects of trafficking women and girls by “force and manipulation.”

“We are thankful that the Grand Jury returned this indictment to get these people off the streets of this city,” said U.S. Attorney William McSwain. “Sex trafficking, especially of minor children, is a pervasive problem that demands an aggressive response. We stand ready with our federal and local law enforcement partners to identify and dismantle gangs that perpetuate this abuse.”

The suspects were identified by federal authorities as Shaquile W. Newson, Alexander M. Malave, Karvarise E. Person, Bryanna C. Concepcion, Fatiema Bivens, Savion Garcia, Isaiah Rowe, and Michael Diaz-Walker.

Authorities said they conspired to recruit, entice, harbor, transport, provide, obtain, and maintain by any means females to engage in commercial sex acts. Some of the victims, they said, were under the age of 18.

The suspects’ arrests come nearly a month after a team of federal, state and local law enforcement authorities, armed with search warrants, converged on a rooming house on South Fourth Street, going room to room as part of their investigation.

The rooming house served as the headquarters for the eight suspects and their violent gang, known as the Sevens, according to federal prosecutors.

The gang’s name, officials said, is derived from the word “loyalty,” which also has seven letters. The Sevens gang, they said, is formed by members of other gangs, including the Gangster Disciples, Crips, Bloods and Latin Kings.

Gang’s co-founders

Officials identified Newson, aka “Raw” and “San,” and Malave, aka “Buju” and “Ace,” as the Sevens’ co-founders. Newson gave orders and sanctioned and approved all gang members’ activities; Malave, also a member of the Bloods, ensured that gang rules were followed and resorted to violence when they were not, according to the indictment.

Gang’s generals

Person, aka “Crazy K,” “Killa,” and “K,” and Concepcion, aka “Bree,” were generals in the gang, officials said. Both worked to recruit women to engage in sexual encounters, with Person helping to determine what rates to charge and Concepcion posting advertisements for paid encounters and training the girls and women to engage in them for money, according to the indictment.

Gang’s guards

Garcia, aka “Quiet,” and Rowe, aka “Izzy,” served as guards of the rooming house and enforcers in the gang, authorities said. They were tasked with controlling access to and maintaining physical security for the rooming house, including watching for police activity on the block, ensuring that the women and girls did not flee the building, and recruiting women and girls to work as prostitutes, according to the indictment.

Other members

Bivens was “a money maker” who engaged in sexual encounters for money and forced, or attempted to force, other females to engage in sexual encounters for money, according to the indictment.

Diaz-Walker, aka “Big Mike,” assisted in posting advertisements for paid sexual encounters, took photos of the females for use in those ads, and drove the females to the locations of the encounters, according to the indictment.

The suspects were charged with conspiracy to commit sex trafficking by force, fraud, or coercion, and in sex trafficking of minors.

“We want to thank Homeland Security Investigations, Reading Police Department, and Pennsylvania State Police for their invaluable work investigating this case

The Interview where R Kelly broke down And Pleaded With America That He was Being Falsely Accused Of Sleeping With Under Age Teens 3/6/2019

R Kelly, an interview was accused of having sex with underage teenagers. This man is being accused and dragged in the mud through the media and law-enforcement without even seen a day in court. R Kelly was crying on national TV and pleading with the public that charges that were brought against him was false. Why would with my past why would i sleep with underage woman that does not make sense.

Today in America, people are being accused of untold unbelievable crimes that has not seen there day in court. The American public forget that a man is innocent until proven guilty. Somehow in this great nation of ours. We have turned that upside down where as a simple accusation can have you fighting for your life.

Bill Cosby, Michael Jackson and many more celebrities are being accused or have been accused of sexual misconduct by many women coming out of blue with accusations. With these women they convict and imprison these men before they stepped inside a court room. With the help of the media there is no need for courts. If this case is being spread throughout the world and United States before the juror gets selected. I will believe this not what America’s forefathers intended. Due to the fact that TV was not invented yet.

American people has to be reserved in a judgment before a verdict is hand out. America and the American people do not want this kind of mindset of guilty be for instance, come into the mainstream. If this happens nobody will be safe from law enforcement or the evil politicians that is developing this mindset in the people using the media, will be safe!!

This Will Open a whole new Pandora’s box with law enforcement carries out there duties enforcing the law . Someone told me that crap float down hill., Well! The crap is starting to float downhill. From celebrities to normal people that will turn America into something we will not recognize in the near future. So look at the video and you give me your thoughts

New York Democrats Want To Decriminalize Sex Work 2/26/2019

NEW YORK ― Sex workers could be released from prison and no longer fear arrest under a new bill announced on Monday by New York state Democrats.   

The Democratic and Republican parties have both historically ignored the needs and demands of sex-working people. But first-term state Sens. Julia Salazar (D) and Jessica Ramos (D), who will work with Assemblyman Richard Gottfried (D) on drafting the legislation, are part of a younger group of more progressive Democratic politicians and candidates who have been vocal about sex workers’ rights. And now there’s an actual chance to get their legislation passed. 

Salazar was the first person to include sex workers’ rights on her campaign platform and go on to win her election. Sex workers and their allies celebrated the win, and now, just three months after being elected, the 27-year-old democratic socialist is staying true to her word.  

“The climate of fear of intimidation caused by criminalizing sex work makes it very difficult for sex workers to seek any kind of redress for labor issues or to report the various kinds of abuse many endure in silence,” Salazar said at a press conference Monday. “Sex work is work, and we need to start treating it as

Ramos, who chairs the state Senate’s Committee on Labor, represents New York’s District 13. It includes the neighborhood of Jackson Heights, which has the largest population of transgender people in the country.

“I’ve seen sex workers on Roosevelt Avenue nearly my entire life,” she said. “Decriminalizing sex work will protect [them] from exploitation, allow them to seek protection from trafficking, and will help victims of sex trafficking seek justice.”  

New Yorkers must “recognize the most marginalized of our neighbors.”

The legislation already has some co-sponsors. Assemblymembers Dan Quart (D) and Catalina Cruz (D) spoke at the press conference to show their support. After Democrats took control of all three branches of the state government in the midterm elections in November, the topic of sex workers’ rights shifted from fringe issue to the mainstream.

“This is a taboo topic,” Quart said on Monday. “But it can’t be taboo anymore.” 

Decriminalization vs. Legalization

The state legislators shared the mic with members of Decrim NY, a coalition of LGTBQ, immigrant rights, harm reduction and criminal justice reform groups. Members of Decrim NY actively called for decriminalizing sex work rather than legalizing it. Sex worker activists have long spoken out in support of decriminalization rather than legalization, saying that legalization does not actually protect workers.

Decriminalization removes criminal penalties for the trading of sex between adults and consenting adult sex workers, Nina Luo, steering committee member Decrim NY, told HuffPost on Monday. Decrim NY will work with Salazar, Ramos and Gottfried on the new legislation.

“The challenge with legalization is that it oftentimes restricts the trade in such a way that it basically still criminalizes workers,” she said.

She pointed to Nevada as an example, where prostitution is legal but regulated in such a way that brothel owners and managers are more empowered than workers. With decriminalization, sex work is regulated the same as any other kind of work ― thus giving sex workers more power to report labor violations such as assault and theft by their clients or law enforcement, she said.

Michael Avenatti Says He Has New Tape Of R. Kelly Sexually Assaulting 14-Year-Old Girl

Though it reportedly appears the girl actively participated in the sex acts, she would have been unable to give legal consent at 14

Attorney Michael Avenatti on Thursday claimed he has given a videotape to prosecutors that he said shows musician R. Kelly sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl.

The high-profile attorney said in a statement that he recently recovered a previously undisclosed VHS tape of the singer, whose given name is Robert Kelly, engaging in multiple sexual assaults of the girl.

“The tape, which is clear, is approximately 45 minutes in length and has never previously been publicly disclosed or, until recently, provided to law enforcement,” Avenatti said in his statement.

Avenatti told HuffPost that the tape was recorded in Chicago in the late 1990s, when Kelly would have been in his late 20s or early 30s. The timing of the sexual acts allegedly seen in the video falls within the relevant Illinois statute of limitations, he said in his statement.

CNN, which viewed the video, said the tape appears to show Kelly engaged in multiple sex acts with a girl who repeatedly refers to what she calls her “14-year-old” body parts. CNN’s description of the video suggests the girl appeared to be actively participating in the sexual acts.

Nevertheless, if the girl was 14 at the time, the incident may amount to sexual assault or statutory rape. The age of legal consent in Illinois is 17.

Avenatti provided additional details about the video’s alleged content in a statement later on Thursday, claiming that Kelly can be seen engaging in oral, anal and vaginal sex with the girl in two different rooms on two different days.

“Mr. Kelly and the young victim are both clearly visible throughout the tape as is an identifying mole on the mid to low back of Mr. Kelly on his left side,” Avenatti wrote. “Critically, Mr. Kelly and the victim also verbally refer to the girl as only being 14 on multiple occasions on the video,” he added.

Kelly’s attorney Steve Greenberg said in a statement that he wasn’t aware of Avenatti’s allegations until Thursday. 

“I have not been contacted by anyone connected with law enforcement, nor has R Kelly,” Greenberg said in his statement. “Mr. Kelly denies that he has engaged in any illegal conduct, of any kind whatsoever.”

Avenatti is representing three individuals in connection with sexual abuse allegations against Kelly, including victims and witnesses, he told HuffPost. He said he gave the tape to Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx.A representative for the prosecutor’s office told HuffPost that they cannot confirm or deny an investigation.

The description of the tape sounds similar to a video that surfaced in 2002, which reportedly showed Kelly sexually assaulting an underage girl. The 2002 video allegedly showed Kelly urinating on the girl, as does, according to CNN, the tape Avenatti turned over to prosecutors. Kelly was acquitted of charges related to the 2002 incident six years later.

In 2017, BuzzFeed News published an explosive report alleging that Kelly operated an abusive sex cult. The shocking accusations of abuse and sexual assault made headlines again recently with the release of the Lifetime docuseries “Surviving R. Kelly,” which interviewed several women who say they were abused by the musician.

This story has been updated with Greenberg’s comments and additional comments from Avenatti.

Prostitute Pretty Hoe Get 15 Years Sex Trafficking Beating Woman & Pouring Bleach…DA PRODUCT DVD

The Los Angeles prostitute known as “Pretty Hoe” will spend the next decade-and-a-half of her life in federal prison after she admitted to using social media to force young women (some of them minors) into prostitution, authorities said.

23-year-old Melanie Denae Williams, who also called herself the “most hated hoe in LA,” pleaded guilty to a single count of sex trafficking by force, fraud, or coercion back in November.

A federal judge gave “Pretty Hoe” the minimum sentence of 15 years. Had she not pleaded guilty, she would have faced life in prison, if convicted.

According to the U.S. attorney’s office, as part of her plea deal, Williams was also ordered to pay restitution to her victims. A press release described in detail the abuse she doled out to at least one victim.

“Williams ordered the victim to strip off her clothes, then Williams threw bleach on her and used a broomstick to beat her,” the U.S. attorney’s office said in the release, adding that she “continually threatened to kill the victim if she left.”

According to an affidavit filed in the case, Williams also forced the unidentified woman to tattoo her name on her face before confiscating the woman’s belongings and identifying documents.

Williams admitted in her plea agreement to using the internet to recruit two minors for “commercial sex acts” before keeping the proceeds for herself, the U.S. attorney’s office said.

“Williams also posted social media videos of her physically beating and using firearms to threaten young women,” the affidavit stated

Pope admits clerical abuse of nuns including sexual slavery

Pope Francis has admitted that clerics have sexually abused nuns, and in one case they were kept as sex slaves.

He said in that case his predecessor, Pope Benedict, was forced to shut down an entire congregation of nuns who were being abused by priests.

It is thought to be the first time that Pope Francis has acknowledged the sexual abuse of nuns by the clergy.

He said the Church was attempting to address the problem but said it was “still going on”.

Last November, the Catholic Church’s global organisation for nuns denounced the “culture of silence and secrecy” that prevented them from speaking out.

The Pope’s comments come amid long-running allegations of sexual abuse of children and young men by priests at the Church.

What did Pope Francis say?

Speaking to reporters while on a historic tour of the Middle East on Tuesday, the pontiff admitted that the Church had an issue, the roots of which lie in “seeing women as second class”.

He said that priests and bishops had abused nuns, but said the Church was aware of the “scandal” and was “working on it”, adding that a number of clerics had been suspended.

“It’s a path that we’ve been on,” he said.

“Pope Benedict had the courage to dissolve a female congregation which was at a certain level, because this slavery of women had entered it – slavery, even to the point of sexual slavery – on the part of clerics or the founder.”

Pope Francis said sexual abuse of nuns was an ongoing problem, but happened largely in “certain congregations, predominantly new ones”.

“I think it’s still taking place because it’s not as though the moment you become aware of something it goes away.”

Where is the abuse said to have taken place?

The female congregation dissolved in 2005 under Pope Benedict was the Community of St Jean, which was based in France, Alessandro Gisotti of the Vatican press office told CBS News.

In 2013, the Community of St Jean admitted that priests had behaved “in ways that went against chastity” with several women in the order, according to the French Roman Catholic newspaper La Croix.

In a separate case in India last year, a bishop was arrested over allegations that he raped a nun 13 times between 2014 and 2016.

Bishop Franco Mulakkal, who headed the diocese in Jalandhar in the northern state of Punjab, has denied the accusations.

In Chile, reports of abuse of nuns carried out by priests led the Vatican to launch an investigation last year. The women were reportedly removed from the order after highlighting the abuse.

Last year, the Associated Press news agency reported cases of abuse in Italy and Africa.

What have women in the Church said?

Just days ago the Vatican’s women’s magazine, Women Church World, condemned the abuse, saying in some cases nuns were forced to abort priests’ children – something Catholicism forbids.

The magazine’s editor, Lucetta Scaraffia, said Pope Francis’s acknowledgement of the abuse “can be of some help”, but warned that the Church needs to act.

“If the Church continues to close its eyes to the scandal… the condition of oppression of women in the church will never change,” she wrote.

The magazine said the #MeToo movement meant more women were now coming forward with their stories.

Woodbridge man sentenced for sexually exploiting 2 minor girls

A Woodbridge man was sentenced on Friday to 10 years in prison for sexually exploiting two minor girls as a prostitution customers.

According to court documents and evidence presented at trial, 65-year-old Steve Nowell, was a frequent commercial sex customer of a prostitution ring led by Michael Gunn, who was accused of sex trafficking two minor girls — ages 14 and 16 — over the course of two years in the DMV area.

Nowell was identified by the minor victims and by two co-conspirators of Michael Gunn as a regular commercial sex customer who paid both of the minor girls for sex on at least 23 occasions.

Authorities found a hidden camera at Nowell’s home that secretly recorded at least one of the minors, and other female victims, in various stages of undress while at his residence for prostitution.

In a recorded interview, Nowell admitted to paying for sex with one of the minors and claimed he did not know her real age. Evidence at trial revealed the minor weighed between 80 and 90 pounds while she was sexually exploited by Nowell.

In addition to the sentence of 10 years in prison, Nowell was ordered to pay $8,900 in restitution to the minor victims.
