How to spot a sexual predator: Psychologist breaks down 8 classic warning signs – and how to protect yourself

Cara Delevinge, a 25-year-old British model and actress, is among the latest stars in a series of sexual harassment allegations against Harvey Weinstein, claiming he attempted to kiss her and coerce her into having a threesome in a hotel room.

In an Instagram post, Cara explained she ‘felt very powerless and scared’ in the situation but managed to escape.

The 65-year-old film producer has been sacked from The Weinstein Company, which he co-founded, following a string of more than 30 accusations, which include rapes that date back decades.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Asia Argento, Ashley Judd, Rose McGowan, Rosanna Arquette and many more are among the celebrities who have come forward, and Ambra Battilana Gutierrez, an Italian model, even recorded the mogul confessing to groping her in a undercover operation with the New York Police two years ago.

California prison psychologist alleges guards locked her in with a convicted rapist

A California prison psychologist has filed a lawsuit against the state alleging she was threatened and demoted after she reported mistreatment of gay and transgender inmates at a correctional facility in Vacaville.

On two occasions, psychologist Lori Jespersen alleges, a correctional officer locked her in a confinement area with dangerous criminals after she filed complaints on behalf of transgender inmates at the California Medical Facility.

“The shocking nature of (the corrections department’s) retaliation against Dr. Jespersen – trapping her in units with notoriously dangerous prisoners, soliciting prisoners to harm her, and more” compelled her to take a one-month leave from her job in 2016, the lawsuit says.

Jespersen, 41, has worked for the corrections department since 2008 and at the Vacaville prison for the past eight years. She is a married lesbian who claims that the prison subjected her to a hostile work environment, illegally retaliated against her and violated state

Forensic psychologist testifies that serial rapist is still obsessed deviant thoughts, not ready for release

A key expert witness testified Friday morning that serial rapist Thomas Duvall is not ready for release into the community, arguing that he remains obsessed with deviant and violent sexual thoughts despite decades in treatment.

Dr. James Alsdurf said he reached his conclusion after giving Duvall a series of psychological tests and reviewing more than 10,000 pages of Duvall’s criminal and treatment records, which include details of his brutal rapes of teenage girls in the 1970s and 1980s.

“He is a man obsessed with sex — most of it violent,” said Alsdurf, who described Duvall as a sexual sadist. He added, “If you’re Tom Duvall, sex is always there. It’s an enormous pressure.”

For the third straight day, much of the testimony centered on the Duvall’s personal journals, or “fantasy logs,” which he was encouraged by his treatment team to maintain. In the logs, which span more than 500

A prison psychologist who was reportedly struck off for starting a relationship with a convicted gang rapist has married another member of the Skaf child rape gang and moved him in to her parent’s Sydney home, according to Fairfax Media.

Parole law flaw: struck-off prison psychologist’s secret marriage to Skaf gang rapist

A prison psychologist who was struck off for having a relationship with a Skaf gang rapist has married another member of the notorious child rape gang who has repeatedly hidden it from his parole officers.

Joanne Natalie Senior, 36, has changed her name to her husband’s, converted to Islam and brought her husband to live with her and her parents in south-west Sydney.

Fairfax Media has obtained explosive parole documents revealing that Ms Senior married the gang rapist about 2013 just after he was released on parole from Parklea prison, where Ms Senior had worked as a sex offenders’ psychologist during a 10-year career.

Her 32-year-old husband, who can only be identified as M, refused at least eight directions from parole authorities to provide the name of his bride.

Parole officers needed her details to determine if she was an “appropriate person” and if she had children in her care as that may have contravened his Child Sex Offenders Registry requirements.
