    HARLEM (WABC) -- Authorities have arrested a Broadway producer at his Harlem home in a child pornography investigation. NYPD officers and Homeland Security Investigations agents arrested 65-year-old Ben Sprecher early Tuesday. He was expected to appear in federal court later. In 2012, Sprecher was a central figure in a scandal surrounding the musical "Rebecca." The show collapsed days before rehearsals began, leading to a FBI fraud investigation into the circumstances.

    MEDFORD, Ore. (KATU) — Authorities found a deceased toddler on Sunday, and authorities believe it is the son of the Oregon couple involved in an apparent murder-suicide in Montana. The child’s body was found deceased in a remote part of Montana. While the medical examiner hasn’t confirmed the identity, they believe it is two-year-old Aiden Salcido. Medford Police officers were working with the FBI to find Aiden after his mother and father, Hannah Janiak and Daniel Salcido, were found dead Wednesday in Kalispell, Montana. Both were wanted on felony warrants in Oregon after they were convicted of a burglary that...

    Detective Mike Fisten retired from New York City's homicide division, figuring a South Florida retirement gig would be a tropical breeze but his first case involved an Epstein victim, the first of very many to follow: Both during his fake Florida jailing and during his probation, Epstein hired PI's to actively intimidate the girls he had been abusing. If the victim pulled up to a gas station, the hired guns would pull up right behind her, making no effort to conceal what they were doing. If she went to the grocery store, they would pull in next to them, hoping...

    Attorney Brad Hall, in the firm's conference room with iPhone photos he has taken. (Greg Sorber/Albuquerque Journal) Editor's note: Albuquerque attorney Brad Hall has represented more than 200 victims of priest sex abuse in New Mexico. As his years-long legal battle nears its conclusion in federal bankruptcy proceedings, Hall talked about the legal and emotional journey that began with an unlikely visit. Brad Hall was thinking about hanging it up after more than two decades as a successful plaintiff's lawyer specializing in civil rights cases. Maybe travel. Visit his kids living in exotic locations. Maybe do some writing. That all...

    GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — As state Attorney General Dana Nessel announced Monday that her office had charged a sixth Michigan priest with sexual assault, she questioned why some already have been released from custody. "I will say that we're seeing a pattern of personal bonds being granted in very serious cases where it has not been my experience that I've seen personal bonds on those kinds of cases," Nessel told Target 8. "I hope that people aren't getting special consideration just because they happened to have been or currently are members of the clergy," she added. On Monday, police...

    FULL TITLE: Brazilian mother, 27, and her lesbian lover, 28, 'tore off her nine-year-old son's penis before beheading him because he reminded her of her father' A Brazilian mother and her lesbian lover are accused of ripping off her nine-year-old son's penis before beheading him because he reminded her of her dad. Rosana Candido, 27, and Kacyla Pessoa, 28, also allegedly sewed a fake female sex organ onto the body because he 'wanted to be a girl' before scraping the boy's skin off his face.

    Joe Biden on Thursday, reversed longstanding opposition to public funding of abortion. The former Vice President, said that his Gala flip-flop, came as GOP-controlled states began phasing out government funded providers, (potentially rendering some species filter services underfunded) — a movement that could strand sub standard human female access to government funded, local *klinics. “I can’t justify leaving millions of women without access to the care they need and the ability to exercise their constitutionally protected right,” Biden, would not support taxpayer funding for abortion if it became more readily available for women in need, particularly women who live in...

    SAGINAW, MI – When police executed search warrants at three Catholic Diocese of Saginaw properties last year during an investigation into claims of sexual abuse of minors, documents show they seized nearly 60 items of evidence. Among them, located in the bottom drawer of a filing cabinet at diocese headquarters, was a file labeled “victim list.” That information is contained in search warrant paperwork detailing what police seized during the March 2018 raid. The paperwork was recently unsealed and copies were obtained by MLive and The Saginaw News. The list of confiscated property shows investigators took 57 items during the...

    President Trump on Thursday night tweeted out a video showing Nancy Pelosi stumbling over her words. The video, apparently from a segment on Fox Business’ “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” features portions of a 20-minute news conference Pelosi held Thursday in a montage that lasts about 30 seconds. It shows her tripping over her words. At one point in the video, a moment is repeated several times. Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, on Twitter called the video that Trump tweeted Thursday night “doctored” and referred to the Post article. Pelosi’s daughter Christine tweeted: “Fake video altered for speed.” It turns...

  • Marching orders kept Buffalo cops from arresting child-molesting priests

    The Buffalo News ^ | Monday, May 20, 2019 | Dan Herbeck
    Hardly any of the more than 100 Buffalo area priests implicated as child molesters spent so much as one day in jail. For years, most of their victims were too scared or embarrassed to make complaints. But Buffalo Police had marching orders not to arrest Catholic priests, according to former vice squad Detective Martin Harrington and other retired officers. Instead they alerted the bishop's office to any illegal activities. "The department's unwritten policy was that Catholic priests did not get arrested," said Harrington, who investigated vice crimes for 17 years and retired in 1995. "I never had any experience with...

    Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests ^ | Thursday, May 9, 2019 | SNAP
    We are very sad that any law enforcement officer would face threats for doing his or her job and we are distressed that the Michigan attorney general has suffered in this way. We hope Michigan's bishops quickly and harshly condemn this hatred. Violence is never the answer. For decades, police and prosecutors who pursued clerics who commit and conceal child sex crimes have been stonewalled, and Church officials have contributed to the unhealthy atmosphere that leads to threats of violence. While the Church hierarchy often postures as being the victims of governmental overreach, the reality is that they were often treated with too much deference in the...

    Complete title: When he was a priest, this N.J. teacher impregnated a 16-year-old. No, you can't fire him, school district is told. A veteran Burlington County teacher who had a baby with a 16-year-old girl while he was a Catholic priest nearly 30 years ago should not lose his job because of his past, a state arbitrator told the school district. Cinnaminson school officials brought up tenure charges against middle school teacher Joseph DeShan earlier this year after parents learned about his history as a priest in the diocese in Bridgeport, Connecticut. DeShan left the priesthood in 1994, four years...
