An Athens woman recently received a 45-year sentence after pleading guilty to charges she sexually abused her 8-year-old daughter to further her own career as a prostitute.

Destiny Delana Rosenberger had been set to begin trial, but on May 22 she entered into a plea agreement with the Western Judicial Circuit District Attorney Office in which she will serve 20 years in prison and the balance of her sentence on probation, according to documents filed in Clarke County Superior Court.
Rosenberger, 32, was alleged by authorities to have sexually violated her daughter and also strangled the child with her hands, according to the grand jury indictment filed last September in Clarke County Superior Court.
The indictment added lurid details to a case in which authorities had already made shocking allegations of physical and sexual assault by a mother on her own child.
The indictment charged Rosenberger with two counts each of child molestation and sexual exploitation of a child, and with single counts of aggravated assault and aggravated sexual battery. She pleaded guilty to all charges the day she was sentenced.
Rosenberger was arrested on June 9, 2016. Prior to the indictment being filed, authorities disclosed allegations the 8-year-old victim took photographs of her naked mother in lewd poses, and watched as Rosenberger had sex with a man. Those photos were then posted online by Rosenberger as she solicited customers for sexual liaisons.
Previously filed court documents included the affidavit of an Athens-Clarke County police Sex Crimes Unit detective who witnessed a forensic interview of the child victim. The detective stated in the affidavit that during the interview, the child “described multiple instances of child molestation and possible exploitation.
The girl reportedly described in graphic details how her mother posed for the photographs which she took using Rosenberger’s cellphone. The photos were then “sent to guys that she just met,” the girl said during the interview, according to the affidavit.
In addition to sexually violating her own daughter, Rosenberger also punched the child victim when the girl did not want to participate in her mother’s illicit activities. Police said Rosenberger also grabbed the child by the neck and head while in the shower to force water into the girl’s nose and mouth.
During the forensic interview with an expert from The Cottage Sexual Assault Center and Children’s Advocacy Center, the victim described “multiple instances that indicate her mother is involved in prostitution and participating in sexual activities in the presence of the child,” the affidavit notes.
According to the indictment, the abuse occurred in Athens from Feb. 1, 2016 to when the Department of Family and Children Services took the child from Rosenberger in March 2016. Police said the abuse also occurred in Florida, prior to Rosenberger moving with her daughter to Athens.

MANATEE A Bradenton woman was charged with capital sexual battery after officials say she admitted to participating in and watching the rape of a 6-year-old victim.

Officials with the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office spoke with Melissa Deloach, 28, as part of an investigation into similar allegations against her father, Euel Deloach Jr., with the same victim, according to the probable cause affidavit.

During that interview, Deloach told investigators she was not only in the room when the 6-year-old victim was sexually abused, but “actively participated” as well, according to the affidavit.

When asked how many times the abuse occurred, Deloach told investigators it happened “five or six times,” according to the affidavit.
Deloach is currently being held in the Manatee County Jail without bond.
Euel’s charges include six counts of sexual battery on a child less than 12 years of age. Euel Deloach Jr., 56, was arrested Feb. 28 after allegations surfaced that he had been sexually abusing a 6-year-old girl and officials later learned of a second victim.
Investigators have said both his victims were known to him.

A former Cub Scouts leader from Arkansas was arrested on charges stemming from a relationship with a teenage pack member whose parents claim she groomed the boy.
Christina McCafferty, 38, of West Memphis, was charged Saturday with sexual indecency with a child and computer child pornographyaccording to Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. The charges come three months after she was dismissed as a “den mother” from the Cub Scouts pack.
Police said McCafferty had an inappropriate relationship with a 15-year-old boy, who she would call and video chat outside of pack meetings.
The victim’s parents contacted the Boy Scouts of America and police after discovering McCafferty had been secretly contacting their son.
The pattern of behavior that eventually became apparent was one of very carefully calculated decisions to influence, befriend and eventually seduce a child under her supervision,” the victim’s parents told news station WREG. “Examples of this include, among other things, secretly providing our child with multiple portable devices, which could be used to contact him without our knowledge.”
It is unclear if the relationship was physical.
A man who trained for the scouts with McCafferty said that he believes she was using her position in the Boy Scouts to find vulnerable children.
“At the time I thought she was trying to help. At the time she told me this boy comes from a single-parent household,” the man who declined to be identified told WREG. “She was sending messages trying to work her way into something physical or sexual.
McCafferty is being held in the Crittenden County jail on $35,000 bond. Her next court appearance is scheduled for July 31.
A 5th grade teacher in Upstate New York has been arrested for raping a student 10 years ago.
Elizabeth Barthelmas, 48, of Wilton, was suspended with pay from the Saratoga City School District just prior to her arrest on Wednesday.
Barthelmas is accused with having a sexual relationship with a student under the age of 13 in both 2007 and 2008. The child was a former student in Barthelmas classroom at Dorothy Nolan Elementary School.
She has been charged with first-degree rape, sexual conduct against a child and first degree criminal sexual act.
Barthelmas is accused of multiple sexual encounters with the child, all of which happened at her home in Wilton. The victim only recently disclosed the abuse, according to the Glens Falls Post-Star.
She had been a teacher for the Saratoga City School District since 2005, and previously worked for the Queensbury Union Free School District.
"Ms. Barthelmas was immediately placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation," the district said in a statement to WTEN-TV. "During her leave, she will not be permitted to be on school district property or attend any school district functions."
Barthelmas has tenure, and the school district is unable to terminate her before filing charges and holding a hearing with an arbitrator.
She was arraigned and remanded to Saratoga County Jail in lieu of $50,000 cash or $100,000 bond.

10 years later, Upstate NY 5th grade teacher arrested for rape of child under 13 June 14, 2017  BEN AXELSON 

Police have arrested a 24-year-old teacher’s aide, Alexandra Culhane, and charged her with raping a 15-year-old student, according to PEOPLE.
The charge is especially heinous because Culhane worked at a school for children and teenagers with special needs.
The sex acts occurred outdoors, in a park at the center of town. She is reported to have had oral sex and intercourse with the underage student in April 2016, according to the Albany Times-Union.
Culhane has been charged with third-degree felony rape and a third-degree felony criminal sex act, and faces eight years in prison.
The 24-year-old worked full-time at Northeast Parent and Child Society School, which serves special needs children from grades six to 12. It has not been specified if the victim was one of the students under her care, but Schenectady County, New York, Assistant District Attorney John Carson has theorized that they met while she was on the job.
“The people’s theory of the case is that Culhane and the victim in this matter first became acquainted through her employment,” Carson told PEOPLE. “She was a teacher’s assistant at a school, and we believe she met the victim through her employment where he was enrolled as a student.”
The school became aware of allegations against the teacher’s aide in October 2016 and immediately relieved her of her duties, though she wasn’t officially fired until February of this year. Police have been conducting an investigation for months and were finally ready to make an arrest.
Though it has not been indicated how the school found out about the incident, spokesman Eugene White stated that the school takes the safety of the children under their care very seriously.
“If something happens, we want to uncover it immediately and take corrective action,” he said.”Transparency and accountability are vitally important.”
William T. Gettman, CEO of the company that owns the school, agreed with his colleague, adding “This is not who we are.”
However, the Northeast Parent and Child Society School is no stranger to scandal. Just last week, a teacher, Ryan Johnson, 45, was arrested and accused of beating a student, WRGB has reported.
As for the accused rapist, Alexandra Culhane has been released of her own recognizance and is scheduled to appear in court on July 3.

A 34-year-old mentor accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a 14-year-old boy was arrested Thursday.
Stephanie Carmona faces a charge of continuous sexual abuse of a child, a first-degree felony, according to the San Antonio Police Department.
Carmona kept her head down, turning her face away from cameras, as she was led in handcuffs to a police vehicle at the San Antonio Public Safety Headquarters downtown.
SAPD spokesman Sgt. Jesse Salame said Carmona works at an area middle school,where she met the boy who is a student.
“That’s how the relationship started,” he said. “She befriended his mother at some point and it turned into sleepovers where she would have sexual intercourse with him.
Investigators said the boy’s mother discovered what was occurring when she noticed text messages between him and Carmona.
“The allegation just came to light to us in mid-May,” he said. “When we did this investigation we found out this had been going on for several months.”
The Special Victims Unit has reached out to the school and is working to ensure there are no other victims, police said.
“Anybody sees her, recognizes her or has information on this case or any other case, we’re asking that they call us,” Salame said.

The search for a Southwest Virginia woman wanted on 24 felony charges involving child pornography ended in the backyard of a Golden, Colorado residence.
Angela Renee Dowell-Wilson, 32, was captured by the U.S. Marshals Service District of Colorado and the Golden Police Department.
On Nov. 24, 2016, a grand jury in Russell County indicted Dowell-Wilson on multiple counts of possession of child pornography, production of child pornography, as well as distribution of child pornography. The grand jury additionally indicted her on charges of commercial sex trafficking, conspiracy and child neglect and abuse.
“After months of being a wanted fugitive out of the Russell County Circuit Court on charges related to sex trafficking and child pornography, the Russell County Sheriff’s Office requested the assistance of the U.S. Marshals Service to locate and apprehend Angela Wilson,” Russell Commonwealth’s Attorney Brian Patton said in a statement Friday.
This case was first referred to the Marshals Service Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force for investigation. The task force searches for fugitives wanted in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. During the investigation, law enforcement learned that Dowell-Wilson may be living in the Denver metropolitan area. U.S. Marshals in Colorado were then notified and began investigating.
There, agents and local law enforcement learned that Dowell-Wilson may be at a residence in Golden, Colorado, a city of about 19,000 people, west of Denver.
The woman was located living in a backyard tent. It’s believed she had been living in Golden for about two-and-a-half weeks, said Andrew Smith, chief for the U.S. Marshals Service in Colorado.
The tent appeared to contain an air mattress, camping chair and an electric heater.
Dowell-Wilson was booked without bail into the Jefferson County jail. She faces extradition to Russell County.
“This case highlights the commitment of the U.S. Marshals Service and the Department of Justice to protect the most innocent in our society and bring offenders to justice no matter how far they flee,” Smith said.
The U.S. Marshals would not have been successful without the help of Virginia law enforcement, Smith said. In addition, he said the assistance of the Golden Police Department was critical to the safe and successful resolution of the case.
“I appreciate the U.S. Marshals for their hard work locating and arresting Wilson,” Patton said. “We have began the process to have her extradited back to Virginia so she can be brought before the court on these indictments pending against her.”

Wanted Russell County, Va., woman captured in Colorado ROBERT SORRELL BRISTOL HERALD COURIER Jun 17, 2017

A Rapid City woman who admitted sexually touching a 4-year-old girl in 2015 was sentenced Friday to seven and a half years in prison
Ashlee Goldsmith, 27, earlier pleaded guilty in Seventh Circuit Court to sexual contact with a child younger than 16. Goldsmith said the incident occurred while she was babysitting the daughter of a family friend at her apartment in October 2015.
Judge Robert Mandel granted Goldsmith’s request for a prison sentence lower than the 10-year minimum for the offense, citing her being a victim of sexual abuse as a child and her lack of a significant criminal history.
The prosecutor, Pennington County Chief Deputy State’s Attorney Lara Roetzel, had asked for a sentence no lower than the mandatory minimum.
There is no crime more horrific than the sexual victimization of a young child,” she said, adding that the 4-year-old was fortunately articulate enough to report what was done to her.
Roetzel described the cycle of victimization as a “real tragedy.” She said the girl is now getting help so that the victimization does not continue,
Goldsmith was initially charged with two counts of first-degree rape, which carries a penalty of 15 years to life in prison. The original charges will be dismissed under her plea agreement.
She will be eligible for parole after serving at least half of her sentence.

A NSW mother is facing the prospect of life behind bars after she filmed herself sexually and indecently assaulting her three young children and uploaded the videos to a child pornography website.
The woman, who cannot be named because it would identify her children, was represented by solicitor Donna Smith when she appeared in Newcastle Local Court via audio visual link from jail last week. 
The woman pleaded guilty to 26 offences, including seven counts of sexual intercourse with a person under the age of 10 years, a charge which carries a maximum penalty of life in jail. 
The other charges include five counts of using a child under the age of 14 to make child abuse material, which carries a maximum of 14 years in jail, five counts of inciting an indecent act on a person under the of age of 16 and knowing it was being filmed and five counts of producing or disseminating child abuse material
The matter was adjourned to Newcastle District Court this week where the woman will get a sentence date. 
The mother was charged last year after an international hunt to identify an abused child captured on a paedophile website ended in the Hunter.
The case highlighted the reach of child abuse across the internet, and the stretch of law enforcement agencies in chasing down perpetrators.
The investigation began after US-based Interpol officers discovered the videos on a paedophile website that was being monitored.
They were able to identify her nationality because of an accent and contacted the Australian Federal Police.
The nationwide search was narrowed down before the girl was identified and the Newcastle office of the Child Abuse Squad arrested her mother. Police say they regularly conduct online operations targeting child abuse material.
"A large number of those people arrested and charged with child exploitation offences in NSW have been targeted after information was provided to the NSW Police Force by other agencies," a NSW police statement said.
"Likewise, offenders have been arrested and charged in other jurisdictions, including overseas, after being detected and identified by online covert operations run by the NSW Police Force.
"While the internet creates many opportunities for child predators to target children and connect with other offenders, it also presents opportunities for police to detect and target them."
