    GREELEY, Colo. (CBS4) — A Weld County jury convicted a Dacono man on six counts of child abuse and sexual assault on a child in what prosecutors are calling one of the most traumatic cases they’ve ever handled. The jury returned its verdict against Dante Larks, 43, on Monday. “This case, is by far, one of the most horrific and egregious cases that our office has ever seen,” Weld District Attorney Michael Rourke stated in a press release.

    A Paterson man who had his conviction for sexually assaulting three children overturned after he was sentenced to 45 years in prison took a guilty plea rather than face trial again. Now he’s looking at the possibility of freedom after only a third of that time. Jurors in Superior Court in Paterson originally convicted Victor Enamorado of three counts of sexual assault in 2015. That conviction was among dozens that were subsequently nullified after the state Supreme Court ruled in 2018 that a particular legal theory involving sexually abused children shouldn't have been used. Rather than risk another trial, Enamorado, now 45, took a deal from prosecutors. This past Monday, Feb. 14, he pleaded guilty to three counts of first-degree aggravated sexual assault, Passaic County Prosecutor Camelia Valdes said. In exchange, she said, her office will recommend that Enamorado be sentenced to 18 years in state prison. Enamorado would have to serve 85% of that sentence before he could be eligible for parole under the No Early Release Act, she said. That comes out to a little over 15 years....

    A registered sex offender was sentenced Friday to 50 years in prison -- without parole -- for getting women he met on Facebook to take and send him sexually explicit photos of pre-teens and even infants. Lorenzo Johnson will have to live to 83 to see freedom again, under the sentence imposed by a federal judge in Indiana. Johnson, 33, of Hammond, IN took his chances at a trial rather than accept a plea deal from the government. Jurors, in turn, convicted him in August of two pornography-related counts as well as with being a convicted felon in possession of a firearm. He ended up getting twice the minimum sentence, nearly all of which he must serve because there's no parole in the federal prison system. Johnson, who was convicted in 2009 for aggravated sexual abuse of a minor in Illinois, used Facebook accounts in other people's names to identify and reach out to women having financial trouble who had access to children, prosecutors told jurors at his trial in August. He claimed to be trying to blackmail other Facebook users,...

    A New York City man who got no prison time in Grenada after admitting that he sexually assaulted a 5-year-old boy there is facing justice here in the United States. Seized by U.S. government agents, Treverson Roberts, 27, pleaded guilty to the crime in federal court in Brooklyn on Monday in a bid for leniency. Roberts certainly won't get the kind of leniency he got in Grenada. The maximum penalty here is 30 years.

    DUBLIN — In what has become a recurring theme for the lone women’s federal prison in the Bay Area, a corrections officer there has been charged with sexual abuse of an incarcerated woman. John Bellhouse, 39, was charged with sexual abuse of a ward, a federal offense that carries a maximum of 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine. At his first court appearance Friday, Bellhouse was released on a $25,000 unsecured bond, which prosecutors did not oppose. As part of Bellhouse’s release, a federal magistrate ordered him to stay in the Bay Area, and attend all court dates. He is not allowed to contact alleged victims or other FCI Dublin employees. Bellhouse now joins two other FCI Dublin employees, including the prison’s former warden, who’ve been charged with sexually abusing prisoners within the past year. Just two months ago, then-warden Ray J. Garcia, 54, was charged with sexually abusing one woman based on a criminal complaint that accused him of sexually harassing multiple incarcerated women and taking steps to cover his tracks, including by telling the alleged victims he...

    DALLAS (CBSDFGW.COM) – A U.S. district judge sentenced a Nocona, Texas man Wednesday, Oct. 27 to 30 years in federal prison for preying on a boy when he was a minor. Ricky Dale Howard, 59, was named a person of interest in the 2015 disappearance of an 18-year-old. In July, just hours after the court declared a mistrial due to juror injury, Howard pleaded guilty to sexual exploitation of a child. “The vast majority of sexually exploited children were victimized by an adult they know and trust – and the young man in this case was no different. While we may never know what happened to him in the moments before his disappearance, we know he spent many months enduring the unthinkable,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Chad Meacham. “We continue to pray that one day, he will be found. In the meantime, we hope today’s sentence brings a measure of solace to the family and friends who loved him. We are proud to put this sexual predator behind bars.” Ricky Dale Howard booking photo “Mr. Howard exploited his position of...

    SAN JOSE — A prominent South Bay coach was sentenced Thursday to more than six years in prison for having lengthy sexual relationships with two underage female athletes at Valley Christian High School in the 2000s, bringing closure to what a judge called a “tragedy” that took nearly two decades to fully come to light. Greg Marshall, a former coach at Valley Christian High School, was sentenced to six years, eight months in prison for 26 felony charges related to having sexual relationships with two of his underage female athletes in the 2000s.  Greg Marshall, 59, was given a six year, eight month prison term by Judge Kenneth Shapero, about three years shorter than the sentence recommended both by the Santa Clara County District Attorney’s Office and the county probation department. He was taken into custody following the two-hour hearing in a San Jose courtroom, which was marked by passionate statements led by the two women whose stories fueled the 26 criminal charges to which Marshall pleaded no contest this past summer.

    "Jurors heard from multiple witnesses who were present at [Haughton's] marriage to Kelly on August 31, 1994, when he was 27 and she was 15," the outlet reported. "Prosecutors showed copies of the couple's marriage license application, which listed Aaliyah's age as 18 at the time of their wedding, as well as their marriage license and marriage certification." Kelly's former manager testified and admitted that he bribed a worker at a Chicago-area welfare office to create a fraudulent ID for the late singer. Kelly was said to have married Aaliyah because he falsely believed he impregnated her. Another witness said that she met Kelly when she was just 17 years old, and noted that he willingly invited her to his studio despite being fully aware of her underage status. The witness added that he sexually abused her following that time and reportedly recorded the two having sex. He was also accused of entrapping a woman in a room at his studio where she was kept for several days and only let out to occasionally use...
    Former Major League Baseball pitcher Felipe Vázquez has been sentenced to prison for having a sexual relationship with a teenage girl, multiple news outlets reported. During a sentencing hearing on Tuesday, Westmoreland County Common Pleas Judge Scott O. Mears ordered Vázquez to serve two to four years in prison on charges stemming from statutory sexual assault.  Vázquez’s attorney Gary Gerson told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the judge granted the former All-Star pitcher credit for serving 23 months in prison before the hearing, adding that his client will be eligible for a parole hearing a month later.   Vázquez, who last played for the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2019, was found guilty in May on 15 counts of statutory sexual assault, corruption of minors, and child pornography and on charges of sexual abuse of children and corruption of minors, according to the Gazette.  Prosecutors said that Vázquez started communication with a 13-year-old girl in 2017, where he exchanged sexual text messages and once met her outside of her Pennsylvania home.  The teen’s mother found out about the inappropriate relationship after the family moved to Florida,...
    Bill Cosby will go to trial for a civil lawsuit alleging he sexually assaulted an underage girl at the Playboy Mansion in 1974, it has been reported less than two months after he was released from a Pennsylvania prison. Judy Huth alleged in a lawsuit filed in 2014 that Cosby sexually assaulted her at the famed mansion when she was just 15 years old and he was 37, but legal proceedings related to the lawsuit moved slowly amid his criminal proceedings and conviction.  Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Craig Karlan lifted a stay stopping the case from moving along Friday and set the trial for a tentative date of April 18, 2022, the New York Daily News reported. Both parties will return to court as early as September 30. 'You're one of the oldest cases, if not the oldest case, on my calendar. It's time to lift the stay,' Karlan said Friday.  Judy Huth, righjt, alleged in a lawsuit filed in 2014 that Bill Cosby, left, sexually assaulted her at the famed mansion when she was just 15 years...
    Comedian Bill Cosby could face civil trial for allegedly sexually assaulting a teenager 47 years ago when a lawsuit filed seven years ago was reactivated, a Los Angeles County judge said Friday. The lawsuit filed in December 2014 ensures that the actor, disgraced and recently released from prison, sexually assaulted Judy Huth at the Playboy mansion in 1974, when she was 15 years old. The assault caused the then minor “acute psychological and mental damage,” according to Huth. The case was suspended as Cosby faced criminal trial in Pennsylvania for drugging and sexually assaulting another woman, Andrea Constand, who worked for Temple University in Philadelphia in 2004. Cosby was first convicted and later released by a decision of the state Supreme Court that warned that he was not allowed to have a fair trial. As a result of this decision, the Los Angeles judge practically lifted the suspension that weighed on the civil case, except for a possible statement by Cosby, 84 years old. The latter remains in effect until September 30, when it will be known whether the decision...
