Sex offender sues ECSO over ‘defamatory’ billboard calling him sexual predator

An inmate is suing the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office, claiming one of its billboards mislabeled him as a sexual predator, instead of a sex offender.

The lawsuit was initially filed in Escambia County court in September 2016, but a summons was sent to both the ECSO and Sheriff David Morgan on Thursday. The suit also names Escambia County and the city of Pensacola as defendants, and according to court documents, summons were sent to both parties last month.

In his complaint, Kenneth Cobb claims the sexual predator designation, which is a higher level than sex offender, was “false and defamatory.” He claims the billboard went up some time in 2014.

Pedophile priest Shanley’s new home bringing scrutiny to sex offender housing

As pedophile former priest Paul Shanley settles into his new home in Ware, 5 Investigates discovers he’s living in a hot spot for high-risk sex offenders, meaning he may have to move if one state lawmaker gets his way.

“Hi Mr. Shanley, how are you?” 5 Investigates’ Mike Beaudet asked him.

“Good,” the former priest answered before shutting the door of his new home in Ware.

The 86-year-old Shanley has kept a low profile since his release from prison in July after serving 12 years for rape and abuse of a child.

Shanley moved onto Pulaski Street in Ware, to a property where two other Level 3 sex offenders live, right across the street from a new dance studio and a school bus stop.

Their landlord is Joel Pentlarge, yet another Level 3 sex offender.

In all, Ware has 19 Level 3 sex offenders living in town.

Accused rapist gets 40 years as habitual offender

A 48-year-old Houma man facing forcible rape charges was sentenced to 40 years in prison Thursday as a habitual offender.

Timothy Elliot, of 122 Howard Ave., was already facing home invasion, kidnapping and rape charges but will serve the next four decades behind bars after District Judge Juan Pickett determined he is a repeat offender.

“He had a lot of pending charges that we no longer have to pursue now because of the habitual offender sentence,” said Assistant District Attorney Chris Erny, who filed the repeat offender bill against Elliot last year. “He could have faced 20 years to life, and in this case the judge gave him 40 years.”

According to the Houma Police Department, Elliot burglarized his estranged girlfriend’s Eliza Street home in 2014 and sexually assaulted her. The victim told police Elliot forced her to leave her home and drive

Convicted pedophile declared a dangerous offender

A former Niagara man, convicted of raping and sodomizing his three children, has been declared a dangerous offender and will be jailed indefinitely.

“I find that there is no concrete plan before the court to satisfy my that (the offender’s) risk could be managed once he is released from prison,” Judge Linda Walters said Monday in a Superior Court of Justice in St. Catharines.

The judge said the 47-year-old man, who cannot be named in order to protect the identity of his victims, would pose a serious threat to other persons, particularly young children.

In a written decision, the judge called the man’s actions “horrific, disgusting and inhumane.”

“I have no difficulty in finding that it constitutes brutality,” Walters said. “I do not need an expert to describe to me the meaning of brutality.

East Pittsburgh man on Megan’s Law list charged with failing to comply as sex offender after messaging 12-year-old …

A Megan’s Law List convicted sexually violent predator is under investigation for his ongoing online contact with a 12-year-old girl with autism via Pinterest.

It was the girl’s mother who learned of Earl Crumb’s messaging with her when the child described the 61-year-old man as her BFF, or best friend forever, on Pinterest. The mother looked up his sex offender history and alerted authorities.

Crumb is charged with failing to register with authorities that he is living in a room above a bar in the 800 block of Linden Avenue in East Pittsburgh. Police confirm two dozen people on the Megan’s Law list as sex offenders live there.

Two of Crumb’s fellow sex-offender neighbors spoke with Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 to say they are troubled by Crumb’s alleged actions.
