Actual sexual abuse is horrendous, but looking at pictures is another story. In many states people unjustly get hammered ( 2 years minimum for each picture!) for looking at pictures, due to “sex offender hysteria”. THIS fool got what he deserved.
One of hundreds of articles I have read about abuse in privately operated “detention centers”, America’s worst prisons!
Excerpts from the Article:
A former youth care worker has been sentenced to 19 years in prison for sexually abusing teenage boys at a migrant shelter in Arizona, the Justice Department said.
Levian Pacheco, 25, of Phoenix was convicted last year on seven counts of abusive sexual contact with a ward and three counts of sexual abuse of a ward. The abuse occurred between August 2016 and July 2017 at Southwest Key’s Casa Kokopelli facility in Mesa, court records show. It was part of the US government’s network of privately run facilities intended to care for unaccompanied minors, according to court documents. Pacheco began working there in May 2016.
Hannah Kearney has been in love with mountains ever since she first strapped on a pair of skis as a young girl, but her gold medal journey almost never happened.
The seven boys he was convicted of abusing, some on multiple occasions, were between 15 and 17, according to court documents. They were being held in detention pending possible deportation, and Pacheco, a youth care worker, supervised the minors, the Justice Department said. Pacheco touched six of the children’s genitalia over their clothes, performed oral sex on two boys and attempted to have anal sex with one of them, court documents said.
Pacheco’s prison sentence is set to be followed by a lifetime of supervised release, the department said Friday.
U.S. District Judge Steven P. Logan increased Pacheco’s sentence because he exposed the victims to the HIV virus, officials said.
