It’s just a guess, but this guy probably won’t do well in prison

​Newsweek called him a designer to watch just two years ago. He’s appeared on Tyra Banks’ show America’s Next Top Model and fashioned clothes for Paris Hilton and Mary J.
Blige. But for the next 59 years, he’ll be wearing California prison blues and warding off inmates who might enjoy shanking a dainty little serial rapist.

That’s the sentence handed down to Anand Jon Alexander, the budding Beverly Hills designer
who was convicted last fall of being a chronic Hollywood creep. Prosecutors say Alexander found prospective models on the Internet, then lured them to his Beverly Hills apartment with promises of modeling work and accommodations at swanky LA hotels — sweet vows that rarely materialized. 

The 34-year-old fashionista was convicted of raping seven women and girls at his apartment. He seemed to have a predilection for going perv on younger women. His victims were ages 14-21.

Alexander didn’t help his cause by firing his attorneys and defending himself during the trial. He also attempted to play the You’re Persecuting Me Because I’m Indian Card, to no avail. And even if he survives a California prison, he still faces investigations in New York and Texas, where he’s believed to have run similar scams.

On the day 5-week-old Israel Santos disappeared, police say mother Asuncion Avila-Villa called 911 to claim an ex-boyfriend had taken the child. “I was just calling ’cause … one of my ex boyfriends came to pick up one of my sons,” the 26-year-old from Hamilton, Ohio told dispatch. “… He said he was going to take him. He hasn’t come
back yet.”
So police spent all night looking for the child — before finding him the next morning, left for dead in a garbage can with a fractured skull. Now Avila-Villa is charged with murdering the child to cover up the fact that the boy’s father is under age 16.

Cambodia, the sex-trafficking capital of Southeast Asia, has long been known as a playland for U.S. sex offenders, where the laws are lax and the underaged sex is cheap. But three American pervs previously convicted in the U.S. are now being flown home after being arrested by American Customs…

Sheriff Danny Presgraves, sexual harasser extraordinaire

​Longtime Page County, Virginia Sheriff Daniel Presgraves has pleaded guilty to racketeering. But based on his original indictment, which carried maximum penalties of 300 years in a federal slam, he probably got off easy. The evidence against him seemed overwhelming.

It began with a tip that Presgraves was taking kickbacks from a cockfighting ring. Under the agreement, the sheriff wouldn’t arrest the ringleaders and would tip them off if another law enforcement agency was planning a raid.

The sheriff was also accused of doing the same thing for an unnamed company facing legal problems. According to the feds, Presgraves deposited more than $100,000 in cash in his checking account from 2001 until 2004.

Prosecutors further accused the sheriff of ripping off his own department. They say he withheld depositing a $39,000 payment from the U.S. Customs Service, and $47,000 from the company operating pay phones in the Page County Jail. And this was just the beginning of his crimes…

A generalized news report about finding Jaycee Lee Dugard

Today we know that while Jaycee Lee Dugard and her two daughters were living in captivity with predatory psycho Phillip C. Garrido, Dugard was also Garrido’s employee (work slave perhaps a better term). She the main worker behind Garrido’s printing business, perhaps even a bit of a creative force, consulting with clients on style, format and design, using the name “Allissa.” While this provided what many might assume were multiple opportunities for Dugard to tell someone about her plight, she was in a psychological situation more deeply traumatic than most of us will ever understand, and she never seized opportunity. Dugard never conducted herself in anything but a businesslike manner, using an e-mail address registered to Garrido: [email protected].

Just $40 a trick? In the Hamptons?

​It likely wasn’t a wise idea to run brothels in quiet, well-to-do residential neighborhoods in a tony place like the Hamptons. Last night, police in New York raided two such establishments after neighbors alerted them to unusual streams of visitors.

Five people were arrested in the raids, which police contend involved some very prolific hookers. They say one prostitute would work each house, serving 30-40 customers a night.

The women, recruited from New York and New Jersey, would apparently work week-long shifts, taking home just $15 from a $40 trick, the rest going to the house.

The suspects were all illegal immigrants. One of the women arrested, Carol Lopez of Queens, was 51 years old, proving that it’s never too late to take on a new and interesting career.

Would you want a sexual predator going to school with your daughter?

​Under normal circumstances, the answer would be a resounding no. But a case in Springboro, Ohio isn’t exactly normal.

At age 14, Nick was convicted of raping a 13-year-old classmate. He’s since been designated a sexual predator. But his Mom says Nick isn’t a run-of-the-mill creep. He was sexually abused for years as a youngster. He’s bipolar and suffers from post traumatic stress syndrome because of that abuse. To top it all off, he also suffers from mild autism, leaving the now 18-year-old with a mind of just 13. Mom also contends shrinks have decided he’s no longer a threat to anyone.

“Talking to my son in private at night, you know he’ll sit and cry and
say ‘mom why can’t I be in school,'” she told WDNT-TV in Dayton. “I’ve been told point
blank over the phone that no matter what he was, any registration of a
sex offender cannot go to Springboro schools.”

Fox News segment about alleged Dugard kidnapper Phillip Craig Garrido.

Police in Pittsburg, CA are investigating alleged Jaycee Lee Dugard kidnapper Phillip Garrido in connection with a series of prostitute murders. According to the Sacramento Bee, Garrido is being looked at as a person of interest in murders that occurred in the Bay Area in the early 90s. Many of the victims from that spree were found in an industrial area where Garrido worked at the time. This comes on top of the 28 charges leveled against the convicted sex offender in connection with the 18-year-long captivity of Dugard, who vanished from her bus stop when she was 11.

It wouldn’t surprise me a bit if Garrido is a viable suspect in these murder cases. He has the requisite history of sexualized violence as well as an apparent psychotic, religious mania often present in the sorts of serial killers who have committed similar crimes in the past.  

In 2006, a neighbor called the Contra Costa County sheriff’s department to report a backyard encampment at the home of Phillip Garrido (see raw video of encampment above), the man now accused of kidnapping Jaycee Lee Dugard and holding her hostage over an 18-year-period.

Unfortunately, admits Sheriff Warren Rupf, the deputy who inspected the yard that day blew it off as a code violation, not knowing that Garrido was a registered sex offender — though the sheriff’s department had that info.
