Pedophile Tracking Madison Co. Man Accused of Sex Abuse of 12 Year Old Boy

A 67-year-old Richmond Man is charged with 50 counts of sexual abuse after Berea Police say he had sexual contact with a 12-year-old boy.

Berea Police say this abuse spanned a two year period and his victim was a child he volunteered to drive to church.

David Cornelison declined LEX 18′s request for an interview from the Madison County Detention Center where he’s being held after his arrest Thursday.

According to the arrest citation the victim says the alleged sex abuse happened three times a week between October 2014 and January of this year.

Berea Police say they were contacted by the victim’s family several days ago and that’s when the investigation began. Police say Cornelison came in contact with the child after he knocked on doors volunteering to drive people to church.

Police say Cornelison does admit to a single instance in which he reached into the back of the child’s underwear and touched him inappropriately. Police have reason to believe Cornelison had access to other children and are now concerned there could be other victims.

The pastor of the church didn’t want to make a comment on the situation but says that church members are overwhelmed at the accusations.

If you were a victim of have information on the case, you are asked to contact law enforcement.

Pedophile Tracking Portsmouth, VA Man Indicted

A grand jury has indicted a Portsmouth man for allegedly taking indecent liberties with a child in his custody.

Court documents say Donald G. Womack Jr. inappropriately touched a 15-year-old in October and November 2015.

“The suspect would buy the victim presents and give him money and food,” according to a criminal complaint filed by the Portsmouth Police Department.

On three occasions, court papers say the victim passed out from drinking alcoholic beverages provided by Womack.

A spokeswoman with the Portsmouth Police Department tells WAVY.com police were dispatched to the 80 block of Kansas Avenue for a disorderly conduct complaint on Nov. 5.

Womack was initially arrested for aggravated sexual battery, but that charge has since been replaced with five new charges due to the Jan. 7 indictment.

Womack now faces two counts of forcible sodomy and one count each of taking indecent liberties with a minor by custodian, contributing to the delinquency of a minor and sexual battery.

Court records show Womack, 41, was sentenced to serve eight months of a five-year sentence for taking indecent liberties with a child in 2012.

Private Detective: Guilty Plea in DUI That Almost Killed Pastor’s Wife

A man pleaded guilty after police say he drove drunk and almost killed a pastor’s wife last spring.

Nancy Vanhook showed up to Lincoln Circuit Court with the support of her family. As she was driving home from a bible study group last May, police say 21-year-old Lee McGinnis crossed the center line on Highway 150 and hit a truck, then slammed into her car.

The crash broke almost every bone in her body and her feet were crushed.

On Thursday, McGinnis plead guilty to three acts of Wanton Endangerment and DUI 1st degree.

Vanhook says she believes he is remorseful and that she doesn’t see any good from making him spend more time in jail.

“Why change his life because mine has been altered? I hope he has learned from what has been done,” Vanhook told LEX 18’s Leigh Searcy. “I hope he can go on with his life.”

He will be sentenced March 11 and is facing 3.5 years in jail.

McGinnis went to jail Thursday pending his formal sentencing tag.

Private Detective: Danville Man Pleads Guilty in Kansas City Kidnapping

A Danville man pleaded guilty in federal court Thursday to charges he received after carjacking a vehicle in Kansas City, Mo. and force its owner to accompany him as he drove across the state, according to the U.S Attorney for the Western District of Missouri, Tammy Dickinson.

Robert C. Caldwell, 26, pleaded guilty to participating in a kidnapping conspiracy, one count of kidnapping, one count of carjacking, one count of using a firearm during a crime of violence and one count of being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Caldwell and an unidentified juvenile waited outside the home of a 67- year-old Kansas City man at about 5:30 a.m. on January 22, 2015. They kidnapped the victim at gunpoint as he left his home. They made him turn over his keys, wallet and cash.

http://liarcatchers.com/contact.php

Dickinson says that the victim was beaten by Caldwell and his accomplice and was struck in the head with a Cobra .380-caliber semi-automatic pistol.

According to a press released from Dickinson, the victim told law enforcement officers that he was covered with a blanket most of the time and was unable to see the locations where the carjackers attempted to use his debit card. He says he couldn’t remember his PIN number so they weren’t able to get cash, which angered Caldwell and his accomplice.

Caldwell pretended to be on the phone with another accomplice who was holding his wife hostage, which was not true. At one point, they informed the victim that they had killed his wife, which was not true.

According to court documents, they continued to drive and stopped at a drive-through restaurant, where one of the men sat next to the victim and shoved the barrel of the gun into his mouth, breaking his teeth, and told him that he would kill him if he moved.

Dickinson says that after getting food, they tied his hands together with a boot strap and had him lying in the floor with a blanket over his face so he couldn’t see. They continued driving and made several stops for purchases with the victim’s credit and debit cards.

Authorities were able to track the victim’s credit and debit cards as the kidnappers used them along I-70 eastbound.

They were also able to find surveillance photos and videos from some locations.

Court documents say that the kidnappers stopped at a rest stop and one of the kidnappers told the other to watch the victim as he slept.

The victim then untied his hands and retrieved a homemade 45-pound weight from under the seat of the van. He hit both kidnappers in the head and attempted to make an escape but was unsuccessful.

He was then beaten heavily by both men, according to Dickinson.

As they began to drive again, the victim pretended to be knocked out. The driver of the van sat the gun on the floorboard so he could use both hands to steer the vehicle. That is when the victim grabbed the handgun and pointed it at his kidnappers. He demanded they pull over. The victim pulled the trigger of the loaded gun when a kidnapper moved toward him. It failed to fire.

The kidnappers fled the vehicle with the keys.

The victim ran from the vehicle and ran down a street in Jennings, Mo. He saw the two carjackers were in the vehicle and driving in his direction.

Dickinson says the victim his behind houses until the carjackers drove away, then he called police.

The stolen van was found on January 23, 2015 in Nelson County, after being in an accident.

Caldwell was arrested on January 27 after a pursuit by KSP and the Lincoln Co. Sheriff’s Department.

Caldwell is subject to a sentence of up to life in federal prison without parole.

A sentencing hearing is scheduled for June 30, 2016.
