nicholas_lorenzo_photoBreakfast reading from the True Crime Report archives: Perhaps there was some confusion on the part of Nicholas Lorenzo, 25. After all, he worked behind a meat counter at a Safeway — so he might have thought beating his own meat was part of the job. Unfortunately for him, he was arrested after asking if he could help a female customer with something while allegedly stroking himself behind the counter. That was extra service she could have done without. Westword has the story.

william.slocum.colorado.collegeReading from the Voice Media empire: College administrators recently decided to rescind an honorary degree bestowed more than a century ago on former school president William Slocum, and the stripping of his name from a campus building. These moves were made because of what the institution’s board of trustees describe as “overwhelming and uncontroverted evidence that Slocum engaged in instances of sexual misconduct and egregious sexual assault while he was president of the college.” Westword has the story.

sexual.assault.victim.getty.imagesReading from the Voice Media empire: The principal at an urban high school who retired last September after a video of cheerleaders screaming as they were being forced into splits is among five people, including four current administrators, charged with failing to report an alleged rape of a female student by a male pupil. Probable cause statements in the case, which is unrelated to the cheerleader scandal, tell a heartbreaking tale about disturbing revelations, persistent bullying, lingering pain and bureaucratic actions and inactions that prosecutors consider to be criminal. Westword has the story.

adam.gotsis.mug.shotReading from the Voice Media empire: Gotsis was playing football for Georgia Tech on March 9, 2013, the date that a woman says he “placed his penis in her vagina against her will.” However, she didn’t report the incident until nearly five years later, leading to Gotsis turning himself in to authorities at the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office after he’d turned pro and become an NFL standout, albeit for the team with more arrests than any other since the year 2000. Westword has the story.

claude.wilkerson.mug.shot.800.croppedReading from the Voice Media empire: In early 2016, we told you about the arrest of former Texas death-row resident Claude Wilkerson for allegedly keeping a woman chained to his bed and repeatedly raping her. Just over two years later, Wilkerson has agreed to a plea deal in the case, and it’s a sweet one. He’s admitted guilt to a pair of lesser charges, for which he’ll serve just six years behind bars and three on probation — an astonishingly brief sentence given the initial description of his crimes. Westword has the story.

tom.moore.cbs4.1.croppedReading from the Voice Media empire: In 2016, at least eleven women accused nurse Tom Moore of improperly touching them while he was supposed to be providing medical care. Now he’s been given a twelve-year sentence for unlawful sexual contact in one county, to run concurrently with a dozen-year jolt previously doled out in another. But according to one of Moore’s multiple arrest affidavits, the amount of time he’s been ordered to serve is only a little longer than the decade during which he allegedly used his profession as a means to violate one female victim after another. Westword has the story.

clarence.moses.el.colorado.independentReading from the Voice Media Empire: In 2016, a jury acquitted Clarence Moses-EL for a 1987 rape for which he spent nearly three decades in prison. This verdict followed then-District Attorney Mitch Morrissey’s decision to retry Moses-EL for the crime even after a judge had vacated his conviction the previous year in the wake of a confession by another man, LC Jackson. Now, Moses-EL is suing Morrissey and a slew of additional defendants in federal court. Westword has the story.
