Block Child Molester’s Parole

Posted by Sandra On May - 25 - 2015 ADD COMMENTS


Please sign the PETITION to keep Alan Powers in prison where he belongs! Below is the story from the victim’s mother:
capture-20150525-211110In 2005 my daughter was 8 yrs old. I had taken her to meet my sister and her husband every other weekend so they can babysit for her while my husband and I worked 3 jobs. While in his care my brother -in -law molested my daughter. Through a program at school [good touch/bad touch] my daughter told the school Alan had touched her inappropriately. This happened on the day of her 8th birthday. The school contacted me and that is when I was told he had molested her. We went to court and he was given 10-life. My daughter wasn’t the only child he molested but because the other girl told when she was also 8 and nothing was done about it she never received  justice. At my daughters trial the other girl did tell the judge in closed chambers what Alan had done to her for many years he had shown this child porn, showed her how to masturbate him, telling her he would show her how big people have sex and so many other things starting when she was 1 years old, but because too many years had passed and she had already told they couldn’t let her go on the record saying the full extent of what he had done to her. He had oral sex and fondled her as he did my daughter and that is all the courts would allow her to say in court records. That girl has been through pure HELL through her life and she only needed someone to listen. This is her and my daughters chance to have someone listen. After several months later and lots of counseling my daughter faced her molester as did this other girl who at this time was 21 years old. Alan should have received time for the other girl but didn’t. Alan was sentenced on Dec of that year to 10-life. On Feb 20, 2007 my sister died of a major heart attack due to the stress of this offenders crime. My sister and I were best friends, we spent every holiday together if I wasn’t working and called each other every night. When my daughter told us what happened everyone told me not to talk to my sister again, Lawyers, police, counselors because they knew we were close and I would slip and tell her what was going on. I never got a chance to talk to my sister again, she died without us making amends. After this began I stayed as strong as I could but several years later while I was at work I had a panic attack and quit my job that day, I went into a deep depression and tried to commit suicide. I had so much guilt thinking if I hadn’t taken my daughter to him he wouldn’t have hurt her, why I didn’t believe the other girl all those years before, why didn’t I just call my sister and so many other reasons i felt guilty for.In closing I would like to ask that Alan not be released from prison he is a danger to all children. He has hit children, fed my great nephew vomit after he made him eat till he was sick, made a boy stand in a corner for 6 hours in a dress for urinating on himself, kicked another child (this was my other daughter at that time she was 2). He is an evil man and everyone just lied to protect him at every turn. My sister protected him because she felt she had nowhere else to go. Please do not release this criminal now or ever. He should die in prison like the scum that he is. Thank you for taking the time to consider this petition.

Fugitive Added to ICE’s Most Wanted

capture-20150310-221248SAN JOSE, California — A Sunnyvale man who absconded following his indictment on federal child pornography charges is the latest fugitive to be profiled on the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) smartphone app, seeking public tips on at-large and unknown child predator suspects.

Jose Alberto Centurion-Cruz, aka Jose Alberto Cruz, 30, was indicted by a federal grand jury in northern California in January 2013 for possession and distribution of child pornography. When ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents searched Centurion-Cruz’s Sunnyvale residence in connection with the probe, they found more than 100 sexually explicit videos of minors on his laptop computer and other digital media. Centurion-Cruz was scheduled to appear in federal court in San Jose last month, but failed to show up for his hearing. On March 18, a bench warrant was issued for his arrest.

Centurion-Cruz is 5 feet 11 inches tall and weighs 200 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. Investigators believe Centurion-Cruz, who is a Salvadoran national, may have fled to his native country. READ MORE HERE

Anonymous needs activists to help expose international pedophiles via ‘Operation DeathEaters’

downloadHacktivist group Anonymous, which has made public attacks on extremists, corporations and religious and governmental bodies, is calling for help in its fight against international pedophile networks, or what it calls the “pedosadist industry”.  In a project named Operation DeathEaters, Anonymous says it is is planning on collating evidence against international pedophile rings and their severe abuse of children and find the links between different operations, and to bring them to justice. Anonymous has issued a video instructing activists on how they can aid in the operation, which has appeared at a time of serious allegations of historic child sexual abuse levied against prominent UK figures, including claims that   a VIP Westminster pedophile ring existed in the past.

Child Pornographer Makes 15 Most Wanted List

capture-20150203-224926David Benjamin Creamer — charged with distribution of child pornography, transportation of obscene materials, firearms violations, money laundering and income tax evasion — has been added to the United States Marshals Service “15 Most Wanted” fugitive list. Director John Marshall today announced the addition of Creamer, wanted in the District of Arizona since December 1997 for violating the terms of his pretrial release.

Investigation of Creamer, 53, began in 1993, focusing on the sales and distribution of CD-ROMs containing child pornography, obscenity and bestiality. The president and founder of the distribution company was Creamer. Between 1992 and 1995, he produced more than 100,000 diskettes for worldwide distribution. His company grossed more than $2.3 million in sales from 1994-95.

“Every time he sent out a new disk, those children were being exploited again,” said Supervisory Deputy Marshal Rick Lovelace, District of Arizona (Tucson sub-office). Lovelace leads the investigation to find Creamer.

In September 1995, a search warrant executed by the U.S. Customs Service, Internal Revenue Service and the Tucson (Ariz.) Police Department at an office and two airplane hangars leased by Creamer turned up many valuable items, allegedly purchased with the proceeds of his illegal business dealings. Items seized included 70 firearms, 80,000 rounds of ammunition and $120,000 in U.S. currency. U.S. Customs Service also seized a Cessna aircraft, two automobiles, two trailers, a 19-foot Larson Runabout boat and seven acres of land in Pima County, Ariz.

“He was living in a section of Tucson where people don’t have garages. They have airplane hangars,” said Lovelace.

In June 1997, a federal grand jury in Arizona indicted Creamer on 23 counts of criminal activity. He was arrested, arraigned and released on bond that same month. A trial date was set for March 1998, but he failed to report to Pretrial Services in December 1997. He has been on the lam since then.

“He’ll probably assume a new life, doing what he has done before in another part of the country,” said Lovelace.

More information on Creamer can be found at the Marshals Service website, www.usmarshals.gov, or by calling Deputy Pacheco in Tucson, Arizona at (520) 904-3165.

Our Angel Gown® Program provides comfort for bereaved families through the gift of a beautiful custom made gown for final photos and for burial services.

How to Surrender an Infant Under Safe Haven Laws

BABY-SAFE-HAVENIn all 50 United States and Puerto Rico, there are safe haven laws designed for a parent to surrender a newborn child to designated ‘safe havens’. Designed to protect infants from neglect or abuse, most states do not ask questions about why you are turning over custody of the child. If you or someone you know is pregnant and do not feel that the child can be raised safely under the care of either parent, the infant can be usually relinquished without risk of prosecution.
