A few weeks after being arrested and charged with downloading and sharing child porn, Daniel Owen Pollard entered a guilty plea.
Pollard, 32, first came to the attention of authorities during an undercover online investigation. More than 100 images and videos of child porn were found on his computer. After being charged with two counts of Class-X felonies, Pollard was looking at 6 to 20 years in prison. The judge sentenced him to 10 years.
Prior to his arrest, Pollard maintained accounts on (creepy) MySpace w/blogs, Facebook and Twitter.
FYI: Class X felons in Illinois usually serve the entire term of their sentence.

Brenda Lynette Harding, 30, had been the former babysitter of Tristen Hagen and his two younger siblings last summer. As a friend of the family, she held a position of trust. That trust was broken when Harding began a sexual relationship with the boy starting on June 5th, and ending the day of his death.
She was the last person to see him alive. Tristen Hagen overdosed on Oxycodone and Skelaxin.
"The documents also show that members of both families, including Harding's husband, were suspicious of a possible inappropriate relationship between the two. Hagen's father spoke with Harding via telephone on April 1, telling her to stop communicating with his son, threatening her with a restraining order. Later that night, the last night he was seen alive, Harding told Hagen of the confrontation, then had sex with him in the parking lot of the Royal Gorge Academy. Following the encounter, Hagen left on foot and was not seen again."
Tristen Hagen was "infatuated" with Harding. He wanted to get a tattoo commemorating the date they first had sex, June 5, 2010.
“On-scene investigators noted that from the vantage point where (the) body was discovered, Harding’s house could be clearly seen in an almost direct line-of-sight,” the affidavit said. “In fact, his body lay in such a manner that it appeared he might have been looking at her house.”
An hour before his body was found, Harding made her own half-assed suicide attempt by cutting her arms and legs. Do it right next time.
The married mother of two has been charged with two felony counts sexual assault on a child by a person in a position of trust, and sexual assault on a child, pattern of abuse.
Harding is sitting in the Fremont County jail. Bond has been set at $15,000.
********* UPDATE **********
Harding pleaded guilty on August 8 as part of a plea agreement, and yesterday, she received her sentence: ninety days in jail, ten years to life on probation, and no contact with anyone under age eighteen until the completion of a risk-assessment analysis. That includes her own two kids.

Can I get a "What the Hell" here?
Halfway through the procedure, things weren't going so well as there was far too much blood. Peterson used the pliers as a tourniquet as baby boy suffered for two hours with uncontrolled bleeding and immense pain.
Peterson finally called 911. Her baby boy was rushed to an emergency room, where he was first listed in critical condition. He has since recovered and has been placed with a family member along with his three siblings.
Peterson had been in the Multnomah County Jail on a $550,000 bail, charged with first-and-second-degree assault and first-degree criminal mistreatment. Bond was lowered to $5,000. She is now out of jail and allowed supervised visits her children.
Hide the box cutters, pliers and most of all, the bible. Crazy folk and religious materials are never a good mix.
Peterson has a MySpace where she claims to be "Yahayah's Chosen Vessel". You can catch her singing on her YouTube account.
Shout out to Multnomah County Sheriff's Office for the excellent quality mug shot.

Richard M. Amabile first told doctors and police that the infant accidentally fell off of a table and hit her head. After confronted with inconsistencies in his story, he broke down and admitted to shaking and throwing the baby when she wouldn't stop crying.

It is unknown at this time if Amabile is the father of the battered baby, however, he has a Facebook with a profile photo of himself holding what looks to be terrified baby girl with tear filled eyes. He also has two MySpace accounts, here and here.

Police say that Joseph Simone, 21, posed as a teen girl online and coerced a 15-year-old boy into masturbating, which he recorded in real time.
Simone, who goes by "Joe" or "Joey" met the victim on an online chatting service called ooVoo.
Simone requested that the juvenile victim perform a sexual act in exchange for naked pictures of the 15-year-old female he was portraying. The juvenile victim complied, and Simone reciprocated with images of a young girl, he obtained from an unknown pornographic website.
Wanting a second performance, the wrestling coach contacted his victim again. The boy was reluctant and Simone forced him by stating he would send the first video to all the victim’s friends on Facebook. The boy complied out of fear and stopped communication.
Simone wasn’t having any of that, and emailed his victim, “I’m sending that video out.” The boy then told his mother. The jig was up. Police believe there may be more victims.
Simone is/was employed as a youth sports umpire and as an assistant wrestling coach with the privately owned (Quaker) Moses Brown High School and the youth based Capital City Wrestling Club. He maintains accounts on MySpace and Facebook.
