Minnesota police recently issued a warrant for the arrest of 61-year-old Jacoby Kindred, Pastor of One Accord Ministries. The charges associated with the warrant actually date back to child molestation offenses, some of which allegedly date back to as late as a decade ago. According to the Pioneer Press, Kindred is accused of raping the 14 and 16-year-old daughters of his son’s girlfriend since they her six years old. He even allegedly told one victim that “the devil was inside her and he could take the demons out of her,” prior to sexually assaulting her.
According to the victims, the alleged abuse incidents occurred at his Maplewood, Minnesota home and “involved fondling, oral stimulation, and rape.” The abuse is said to have gone on for a decade. Authorities were alerted of the alleged abuse in July by the mother of the victims, who reached out to the police after she recovered a letter detailing sexual acts performed with Kindred, written by one of her daughters.
Kindred has responded to the allegations, insisting that the mother of the alleged victims made them tell “lies” because she is upset with him.
“Anyone can make up anything when you sit there long enough and you rehearse it,” Kindred told the Pioneer Press in a phone interview. “All a woman has to do [in Minnesota] is make an accusation, true or false, and the man’s going to be in trouble.”
During the time of the call, Kindred told reporters that he was out of town for a funeral, but declined to disclose his location. If found guilty, Kindred could face up to 30 years in prison.

Because these days, raping girls and bragging about it on social media has become a thing…I’ve got to report something that turns my stomach merely typing it. A group of teen boys in West Auckland, New Zealand, who call themselves The Roast Busters have been getting girls as young as 13 intoxicated, gang raping them and broadcasting it on their sick Facebook page of the same name (that has since been taken down) for two years now. What’s worse about this entire story is that New Zealand’s police say they can’t do anything about the group or their raping for leisure! Oh and police have confirmed that one of the boys is the son of a high-profile entertainer, and the other is the son of a police officer. There goes that same privilege we say in the Steubenville and Maryville rape cases.
Reports claim the police have known about this group since their start, yet no arrests have been made.Detective inspector, Bruce Scott has said that “none of the girls have been brave enough to make formal statements to us so we can take it to a prosecution stage or even consider a prosecution stage.” Even though police have investigated, collected evidence and the rapists only brag on social media, even at one point recruiting new members, police still do nothing to take these young criminals to court. Detective Scott has also said, “The reason we have not prosecuted anybody is we don’t have sufficient evidence at this stage.” Well isn’t that interesting?!
The boys, who are between the ages of 17 and 18, can be seen in their videos, driving around in what they call “The Roast Mobile.” One of the members says, “We pick them up, never drop them off, roast them…” The young man in the photo on the left, Joseph Levall Parker, has left the group.
Anonymous interviews with some of the victims have helped in getting the Roast Busters’ Facebook page shut down. “They don’t understand how I feel inside; they don’t understand how this has hurt me,” one victim says.
It’s being reported that as a result of publicity around the case, one of the young men who previously declined to cooperate presented himself at a police station early this afternoon. Another member is also being interviewed by police. At least, now there is an investigation happening and maybe, just maybe justice will be served.

In a bizarre, or at least rare, news occurrence, a Chicago woman and mother has been charged with raping a man after holding him at gunpoint and forcing him to have sex with her friend.
According to DNA Info, on the morning of July 26, 25-year-old Cierra Ross offered the 33-year-old victim a ride around 5 am. After the man got into the passenger seat of the car, Ross reportedly pulled a gun and demanded he get into the backseat of the car. When he did so, an unidentified woman made him take off his clothes and then forced him to have sex with her even though he begged her to stop.
When a pair of headlights came into view, the victim saw that as his opportunity to flee so he ran out of the car with only his t-shirt on and flagged down the driver who happened to be a cabbie. The taxi driver picked up the man and let him use his phone to take a photo of the license plate on the car of the attackers before dropping him off at his Berwyn home.
In addition to raping the man, the women also took his cash, iPhone, and credit cards which were used at several locations following the attack.
Thanks to the victim’s quick thinking and his ability to pick out Ross from a line-up, the mother of two who works at a local Denny’s restaurant, according to The Huffington Post, was eventually booked on September 5 and is being held on a $75,000 bail. Arrest records show she has been convicted twice of misdemeanor solicitation of a prostitute in the past. So far there’s no word yet on the motive of this attack or the other woman involved in the rape.
Let’s hope both women are made to pay for this heinous crime.
Back in July of 2010, a woman by the name of Carissa Capeloto accused recording artist Sean Kingston and his body guard of gang raping her in a Seattle hotel room. According to Capeloto’s story, after indulging in marijuana and several shots of Vodka, she was forced to have sex with Sean, his body guard and another member of his entourage.
The gruesome report went on to describe the alleged incident in detail, revealing that Capeloto claimed Sean’s body guard literally picked her up and placed her on top of Sean and then all three men proceeded to gang rape her while she was “obviously intoxicated, incapable of consent.” The alleged victim went on to say that her friend eventually came into the room, rescued her and called the police. She was then rushed to the hospital, where she was reportedly treated for injuries consistent with rape. Sean, however, maintained that the sex was consensual. The charges were eventually dropped after investigators concluded that she wasn’t credible enough to build a solid case. Although Sean may have been cleared of criminal charges, it looks the initial criminal investigation was only the beginning.
According to TMZ, Capeloto recently filed a civil suit against the singer over the incident, claiming that her life has been ruined. In the filing, the young woman claims that she has difficulty sleeping and suffers from panic attacks and mood swings. We hear she’s asking for at least $5 million in damages. Sean has also filed paperwork in response to Capeloto’s lawsuit, insisting that the sex was 100% consensual. The trial is schedule to begin in November.

I’m not really sure where to even start with this heartbreaking story.
A 10-year-old Houston, Texas girl was arrested and charged with raping a 4-year-old boy, KHOU 11 reports. While the details surrounding the incident are scarce, what we do know is that the alleged incident is said to have occurred in the courtyard of the girl’s apartment complex.
“She was just being a child, having fun and playing. She didn’t know she was doing any wrong,” the girl’s mother told KHOU.
The incident was first reported back in April, which is when a sex crimes investigator was assigned to the case. The child was arrested last week and taken to a juvenile detention center, where she was held for four days.
“Me and my mom was crying and then she took me to the police car. I didn’t want to get in,” the girl told reporters.
“Just to look and see her through those windows and bars, screaming and stuff, screaming for me to get her out… it was a nightmare,” the child’s mother added.
One can only imagine how frightening it was for the preteen to be fingerprinted, issued a prison jumpsuit and placed in cell.
“It was my first time being there and I was scared. I thought something was going to happen to me,” she said the experience.
Although she didn’t have an attorney, local community activist, Qunaell X, stepped in to defend her.
“This was nothing more than horseplay. That’s what this was. It has gone a little bit too far… criminalizing a 10-year-old child,” Quanell said.
The child’s mother won’t specify whether or not she believes her child did anything wrong, but she argues that investigators should consider the fact that they’re dealing with a child.
“I’m not saying she didn’t [do something wrong], I’m not saying that she did. I’m saying she’s still a child.”
If convicted, the girl may have to register as a sex offender.

Tawana Bradley, 40, who falsely accused Steven Pagones of raping her in 1987, has finally started making payments to Pagones; he won a defamation case against her in October 1998 and is still owed $431,492 in restitution, reports USA Today.
Brawley was 15-years-old when she was found unconscious and wrapped in a garbage bag. Her clothes were ripped and burned—the words “n***er” and “K.K.K.” were written on her torso. She pointed to three white men as her assailants, one of them Pagones, but forensic evidence shows there was no evidence of assault found in the tests. The crime received massive media attention and deepened racial tensions.
“They destroyed his ability to practice law,” Garry Bolnick, Pagones’ lawyer claimed. “This episode soured him on the whole legal profession and really prevented him in pursing his career.” Brawley was found guilty in a defamation case in 1998 and ordered to pay $190,000. With interest, the total has grown to $431,492. There’s always been doubt about whether he would ever be fully paid.
Brawley now works as a nurse in Laurels of Bon Air nursing home in Richmond, VA. A court in Virginia ordered Brawley’s employer to garnish up to 25 percent of her paycheck. So far, she’s paid a little over $3,700 to Pagones — for the first time since the 1998 case. Inconveniently, under Virginia law, Pagones must renew his request for Brawley’s wage garnishment every six months.
Bolnick has been tracking Brawley down to pay the restitution for years. She had been accused of leaving town, changing her Social Security number and using an alias multiple times. “[I]t was a combined effort of his law firm, Pagones’ private investigation business and The New York Post that found her,” USA Today adds.
“It would be nice if she would pay off the entire judgment. Obviously, she’s going to make us work for that,” Bolnick said. Rev. Al Sharpton was largely involved in defending Brawley and was also ordered to pay restitution,, which has been taken care of. “The only way we will get the money is if some of her so-called supporters come up with it,” added Bolnick.
“He equaled himself to being a prophet. As time went on, he was god-like. I had to call him, ‘my god.’ He equated himself to Jesus Christ … He would sit us all down and lecture us about his greatness and his power … At another point, he equated himself to Prince and Michael Jackson.”
