Christopher Lawyer

Convicted Boulder rapist Christopher Lawyer’s arrest in California was for reportedly missing his curfew, but the Colorado Department of Corrections said it is likely such an infraction would not require him to return to Colorado.

Lawyer, 42, was arrested Monday by the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department Sexual Assault Felony Enforcement Team on suspicion of a parole violation, and is being held at the Sacramento County Jail.

Officials at the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, which is now overseeing Lawyer’s parole, said they did not know yet when or where Lawyer’s next hearing would take place.

But Mark Fairbairn with the Colorado Department of Corrections said that

Woman testifies she remembers the look of her rapist four years later

A 23-year-old woman testified Wednesday she won’t forget the look of a man who raped her nearly four years ago.

“He had a smirk,” she said. “I told him to stop. He was aggressive and he had a look in his eye that he wasn’t the same person he was earlier in the night.”

The woman identified that man as Terrail Bolden, 26, of Kalamazoo and formerly of Battle Creek.

Bolden is charged with first degree criminal sexual conduct and faces up to life in prison if convicted by a Calhoun County Circuit Court jury which began hearing testimony Wednesday. The case resumes Thursday before Judge Sarah Lincoln.

The prosecution is part of the Calhoun County Sexual Assault Kit Investigation by the Michigan Attorney General’s

Expert: Convicted child rapist, killer is psychopath

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A neuropsychologist has told jurors that a man convicted of abducting an 8-year-old girl from a Florida Wal-mart and then raping and murdering her is most certainly a psychopath.

The Florida Times-Union reports Joseph Sesta, who has worked extensively with violent sexual predators, testified in a Jacksonville courtroom Wednesday in the penalty phase for 62-year-old Donald Smith.

Jurors took less than 15 minutes last week to convict Smith of the 2013 death of Cherish Perrywinkle. The jurors returned this week to decide whether Smith should be executed or spend the rest of his life in prison.

Sesta and other experts called by the defence all said Smith’s brain is far from normal and he lacks control over his impulses. He also was described as callous, uncaring, manipulative and lacking empathy.

Visually impaired 11-year-old girl identifies ‘rapist’ through his voice

A man who had allegedly raped a visually challenged minor girl 10 days ago was identified by the victim from his voice when he went to her house in Dharuhera, 40 kilometres from Gurgaon, on Monday for the second time with an intention of abusing her again, police said.

When the man identified as Sanoj Kumar was speaking with her mother, the 11-year-old identified him from his voice and immediately alerted her mother, who raised an alarm. But the man managed to escape after threatening them.

The family members of the victim approached Rewari police, which arrested the man under the Pocso Act. The police said the incident happened on February 11.

The victim’s father said in his police complaint that his wife and daughter had come to Dharuhera from Jharkhand to work in a factory around 20 days ago. On February 11, he along with his wife went to his

John Worboys: Police failed victims of black cab rapist, Supreme Court rules

Two victims of John Worboys have won a landmark court case against the police for bungling its investigation into the serial rapist.

The rape survivors sued the Metropolitan Police for breaching their human rights over their failure to catch Worboys sooner.

The Supreme Court – in a judgment handed down on Wednesday – “unanimously” ruled in the women’s favour. 

The victims – who can be identified only as DSD and NBV – are also bringing a separate judicial review of the Parole Board decision to release Worboys, dubbed the “black cab rapist”. That hearing will be heard in the High Court next month.

One of the victims, DSD, who was at court to hear the judgment, said: “It has been an emotional day. Fifteen years.”

Referring to the police, she added: “Had you done your job properly, there wouldn’t be 105 victims, there would be one. I can take the one.

Face of ‘evil’ child rapist Nigal Smith who abused girls over a decade

These are the first pictures of child rapist Nigal Smith, who was jailed for 20 years for sordid sex crimes against girls as young as 13.

The pervert, branded as “evil”, “cruel” and “wicked” by Judge Jinder Singh Boora last week, was convicted of a string of vile offences ranging from rape to indecent assault.

The Mercury asked Leicestershire Police for Smith’s mugshot to publish last week but the force declined.

However, acquaintances of Smith, revolted by his crimes, have provided the Mercury with these pictures because they want to see them published.

Smith raped two young women, one from the age of 13 onwards and the other from the age of 15, threatening and coercing them to stop his crimes coming to light.

At Leicester Crown Court on Friday Judge Boora said: “When I look at you, I’m looking at evil.

“You’re a cruel, manipulative and wicked man who has damaged two

Rapist who texted Sacramento woman before her mysterious death arrested for violating parole

A man convicted of kidnapping and raping a woman at gunpoint in Colorado was arrested in Carmichael Monday morning for violating the terms of his parole, Sacramento County sheriff’s spokesman Sgt. Shaun Hampton said.

Christopher E. Lawyer was booked into the Sacramento County Main Jail at 8:46 p.m., after officers found him at the 6400 block of Brando Loop in Carmichael earlier that day. A Sacramento County sex offender database lists his home address at the 2000 block of Wingfield Way, located more than nine miles away.

Lawyer made headlines earlier this month when family members of a woman who mysteriously wandered into the American River Canyon near Auburn said the two exchanged text messages after meeting at a grocery store sometime before her death.

The Sacramento woman, Yinshan “Michelle” Wong, was found barefoot and dead in December, with officials saying a mountain lion had consumed parts of her body

Christopher Lawyer

Christopher Lawyer, a convicted rapist out of Boulder, has been arrested in California on a parole violation about half a year after the court-designated “sexually violent predator” moved to the state.
