Pedophile Tracking Husband and Wife Convicted of 94 Drug and Child Sex Offenses

A husband and wife have been convicted of 94 drug and child sex offenses.

Nicholas Taylor, 47, was found guilty of 62 charges, while 42-year-old Joan Taylor was found guilty of 22 offenses, with their charges including rape, indecency with a child and supplying Class A drugs.

Both pleaded guilty to other offenses before the trial began at Leicester Crown Court in February and will be sentenced in May.

The crimes took place against boys and girls as young as 11, between 1996 and 2006. Their 11 victims were aged 16 or under at the time of the incidents.

Northamptonshire Police said the investigation into the Taylors of Briar Hill, Northampton, began in 2014 and was the largest of its type in the force’s history.

Det. Insp. Adam Pendlebury, who oversaw the investigation, said: “It is very clear that Nicholas Taylor is a very dangerous, depraved individual who used threats of violence alongside crack cocaine to sexually abuse children.

“It would be easy to suggest that he forced and bullied Joan into committing offenses but the court has heard that she was a more than willing accomplice.

The Taylors were master manipulators who used crack cocaine to force their victims to engage in sexual activity against their will and their actions have had a devastating impact on their victims’ lives.

– Det. Insp. Adam Pendlebury, Northants Police

Each of the victims gave evidence at the trial.

Wrongful Death Man Accused in Murder of Northern KY Couple Appears in Court

Prosecutors continues to build their case around the man accused of murdering a Northern Kentucky couple and dumping their bodies in two different counties.

The prosecutors are not just focusing on the two murder charges that Craig Pennington is facing, they are also focusing on the counts of robbery, kidnapping, tampering with physical evidence, theft, wanton endangerment, terroristic threatening, and abuse of a corpse. A new charge was added Wednesday, felon in possession of a handgun.

http://liarcatchers.com/wrongful_death.html

Investigators say that Pennington shot his landlords, Bobby Jones and Crystal Warner, following a rental dispute back in July.

The families of the Northern Kentucky couple tell LEX 18 that Pennington was behind on paying his bill. Officers say that after the shooting, Pennington dumped Jones’s body in Clark County and Warner’s in Bath County.

Jones’s body was not found until August and Warner’s was not found until November.

The family says that hearing the charges read in court Wednesday gave them the power to keep fighting for justice as investigators continue to gather evidence in the case.

Jones’s body was returned to his family, but the body of Crystal Warner is still with medical examiners in Tennessee.

The family tells LEX 18 that they will be back in court for Pennington’s next appearance scheduled on May 17th.

“We are here to get justice. For us, for Bob and Crystal, he took their voice and so now we are standing up for them,” the family told LEX 18.

Private Detective: Winchester Man Sentenced to 24 Month for Illegally Hacking Into Website

A Winchester, Ky., man, who previously admitted to hacking and taking control of a high school sports website, to gain publicity for his online identity and harass and intimidate the website owner and others, has been sentenced to 24 months in federal prison.

 

Today, U.S. District Judge Danny C. Reeves sentenced Deric Lostutter, 29, for conspiring to illegally access a computer without authorization and lying to an FBI agent. Noah McHugh, Lostutter’s co-conspirator, previously pleaded guilty in September 2016 to accessing a computer without authorization and has been sentenced to eight months in prison.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

“Ensuring proper online security and privacy is critically important to all of us,” said Carlton S. Shier, IV, Acting United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Kentucky. “Computer hacking and cyber harassment create real victims, causing enormous damage to real people, organizations, and institutions. This type of conduct simply cannot be tolerated and the great work of our FBI partners in this matter validates our ongoing efforts to protect the public from illegal computer intrusions and other cybercrime.”

 

Lostutter admitted that in December 2012, he and McHugh hacked into a fan’s website, created for Steubenville High School sports teams, to bring attention to a rape for which two Steubenville High School football players had been arrested in August 2012, and at the time were being held in custody.

 

Lostutter filmed a video wearing a mask and wrote a manifesto, which were both posted on the website to harass and intimidate people, and to gain publicity for Lostutter’s and McHugh’s online identities. Specifically, the messages threatened to reveal personal identifying information of Steubenville High School students, and made false claims that the administrator of the fan website was involved in child pornography and directed a “rape crew.”

 

As part of the same hack, Lostutter and McHugh accessed the administrator’s private email account, and then publicly posted a link to download the administrator’s emails on the fan website. Lostutter and McHugh changed the website so no one could access anything regarding athletics and could only view the video, the manifesto, and the link to the administrator’s private emails. Lostutter and McHugh then used their online identities in social media and news interviews to promote themselves and their hack.

 

In 2013, Lostutter lied to the FBI, by stating in an investigative interview that he had not written the manifesto posted to the website, that he had not accessed the password-protected section of the fan website, and that he had not changed the administrator password for the website, which prevented the administrator from regaining control of his own website.

 

Acting U.S. Attorney Shier and Amy Hess, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation, jointly made the announcement.

 

The investigation was conducted by the FBI. Assistant U.S. Attorney Neeraj Gupta prosecuted this case on behalf of the federal government.
