Keep it up, Oprah...child predators are repeat offenders, ALWAYS:
 
 
Ex-Con Denied Bond in S.C. 'Dungeon' Rapes  
Sunday, March 19, 2006
   
COLUMBIA, S.C. — A local magistrate denied bond Saturday for a convicted rapist charged with abducting two teenage girls and assaulting them in an underground room behind his home.  
 
Kenneth G. Hinson was captured Friday evening after a four-day manhunt in the woods around his Darlington County neighborhood, about 20 miles northwest of Florence.
 
County Magistrate Deatrice Curtis denied bond on charges of criminal sexual assault, kidnapping and assault and battery with intent to kill.
 
The two 17-year-old girls had been sleeping in a nearby home late Monday when Hinson, 47, allegedly kidnapped each girl and assaulted her in a room under a shed on his property, police said. The girls were left bound inside the room but managed to wriggle free and walk to safety.
 
At Saturday's hearing, Darlington County Chief Deputy Tom Gainey described the room's dire conditions, saying "we have found no space that would have supplied any air supply while they were in that compartment."
 
Hinson said little during the hearing, but he seemed taken with the interest in his case. When informed that he would be having a second bond hearing on a charge of first-degree burglary, Hinson asked: "Will we have this much media there too?"
 
Local, state and federal authorities had been searching for Hinson since Tuesday. On Friday, he showed up a the back door of a relative's home and asked for water, authorities said. The relative gave it to him, then called 911.
 
Hinson, who was carrying a loaded handgun, was quickly arrested.
 
Neighbors said Saturday they were relieved Hinson was in custody.
 
"I slept good last night," said Argeree Cooks, who lives with her four grandchildren just down the street from Hinson's property. She said she had been sleeping with a hammer and a gun within reach all week.
 
In 1991, Hinson had been convicted of raping a 12-year-old girl. Just before his release from prison in 2000, a review committee recommended he be committed indefinitely to a Department of Mental Health facility for treatment. But Circuit Judge Edward Cottingham rejected the recommendation, saying prosecutors failed to show that Hinson would likely offend again.
 
Cottingham said Friday he did not remember the specific case but said state law requires prosecutors to show probable cause that the person will commit another sexual assault.
 
"Obviously I regret that these young children were raped by this man," he said.

..............and a FIFTH Child Molestor is captured!
 
 
At the start of Oprah's 20th season, we launched Oprah's Child Predator Watch List, challenging viewers to catch some of America's most wanted fugitives—men charged with heinous sex crimes against children. Within just 40 hours, viewers helped the FBI capture two of them. The following month, a third fugitive was captured…and now we've caught a fourth!
 
Former scout leader William George Barney is a repeat offender charged with crimes dating back to 1988. After being charged with sexually abusing six young boys in California, Barney pled guilty to one count of lewd and lascivious conduct with a child and served less than 12 months in jail. A few years later, Barney moved to Las Vegas where he allegedly seduced his next young victim. The child said Barney molested him as many as three times a day for six years. When the boy finally told police his terrible secret, Barney vanished before Nevada authorities could question him.
 
William George Barney's life on the lam recently came to an unexpected halt after one of his friends discovered his identity. »  
 
Roberto Sanchez, a resident of Ensenada, Mexico, was at an Internet cafe when he happened to come upon a familiar face online, a man he knew as "Bill." Roberto says he met Bill Barney two years ago and they grew close. Roberto saw his American friend several times a week, but Barney revealed little about his past.
 
"He [seemed] like a normal guy," Roberto says. "Like [any] retired guy in Ensenada."
 
Roberto says Barney mostly kept to himself, but some of his friend's behavior struck him as strange—especially the fact, he says, that Barney had young men over to his house in the evenings.
 
As soon as Roberto realized Barney's true identity, he contacted the FBI, who, in turn, contacted Mexican authorities. Within 48 hours, Barney was captured. After five years on the lam, Barney was returned to the United States to stand trial.
 
Jan Caldwell, a Special Agent with the FBI, thanks Oprah viewers for Barney's capture. "This is a man that very well might have gone underneath the radar for the rest of his life," she says, "and we have him off the streets. Children are safe now."

She may be Overexposed, but what she's doing here is a wonderful thing, and something that's actually working.  It's your right to criticize Oprah, but it seems short sighted to criticize her on the one subject where she's genuinely making a difference for our children.  
 
I say her money that's been languishing in a bank account until now is being put to good use here, the kind of use I would want to see it put to.  I don't really care if she's doing it for exposure, personal gain, personal gratification, or revenge (being a molested child herself).  Her motivation isn't as important to me as her results.
 
The world needs less pedafiles, I say good for her.

Gary Lee St. John
Posted on: October 4, 2005
Captured: December 20, 2006
 
Accused of molesting his step-granddaughters and their friend, Gary Lee St. John posted bail and vanished before his court date nearly a decade ago. Find out how a medical mystery led to his capture.
Gary Lee St. John is accused of preying on his two step-granddaughters and their friend. In 1998, his 12-year-old step-granddaughter came forward, claiming St. John fondled her and forced her to touch his genitals during frequent summer fishing trips in California. The girl's friend also claimed that during one of those trips she, too, was molested. Then, his 6-year-old step-granddaughter told her mom that St. John had molested her at his Nevada home.
 
St. John was charged with 28 felony counts of lewd or lascivious acts with a child in California—enough to put him away for life. In Nevada, he was charged with sexual assault and lewdness with a child under 14. St. John posted $60,000 bail. Nearly 10 years ago, St. John vanished on Thanksgiving Day.

Tip snares alleged child molester on FBI top 10 list  
POSTED: 12:57 p.m. EDT, May 13, 2007  
 

 
LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- A tip from a Canadian resident ended Richard Steve Goldberg's stint on the FBI's Ten Most Wanted Fugitives list, and the alleged child molester is now awaiting extradition, the bureau said.  
 
According to the Web site for the television show, "America's Most Wanted," Goldberg had been seeing a nonprofit counselor under the alias Terry Wayne Kearns. He allegedly told the counselor he was an American fugitive, but the charges against him were "trumped up," the Web site said.  
 
The counselor told a friend, who found Goldberg on the FBI Web site, according to "America's Most Wanted."  
 
The 61-year-old former engineer had been on the run for six years after he was charged in 2001 with producing child pornography, two counts of possessing child pornography and six counts of performing lewd acts on a child, the FBI said. He also faces unlawful flight charges.  
 
Authorities in Long Beach, California, say Goldberg engaged in sexual acts with girls younger than 10 for five months in 2001. Authorities also allege they found images of the sex acts on Goldberg's computer, a federal crime.
 
"Goldberg gained the trust of [neighborhood] parents and then befriended their children. He entertained the girls by allowing them to play with his pets, watch television and use his computer to play games. Some of these girls also took short trips with him," according to the June 2002 FBI news release announcing Goldberg's inclusion on the most-wanted list.
 
The president of a gun club in Long Beach, California, Goldberg was considered armed and dangerous, according to the FBI.  
 
Goldberg was captured in Montreal, Quebec, early Saturday after the tip from Canada, said Long Beach Police Chief Anthony Batts and J. Stephen Tidwell, assistant FBI director in Los Angeles.
 
Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the Montreal Police Service arrested Goldberg without incident for violating Canadian immigration laws, the statement said.
 
Canadian authorities are holding Goldberg on the immigration violation. He is scheduled to be in court Monday.  
 
Goldberg is expected to be extradited to the United States to face the California and federal charges, Tidwell and Batts said.
 
A reward of up to $100,000 had been offered for information leading directly to Goldberg's arrest. The FBI news release did not mention the reward.
