14 posts in this topic

An elementary school volunteer has been arrested in a child pornography investigation, according to Prince George’s County police.

 

 

Authorities said they’ve arrested Deonte Carraway, 22, of Glenarden as part of a “wide-ranging child pornography investigation.” Police have not detailed the charges Carraway faces and his role in the investigation.

 

The victims range from 9- to 13- years of age and police have counted 10 victims so far, officials said at an afternoon press conference.

 

Police said the filming occurred in at least three public places: Judge Sylvania Woods Elementary School, Glenarden Municipal Center and the Theresa Banks Memorial Aquatic Center. Carraway was arrested Friday and is being held on a $1 million bond.

 

Wow, $1 million bond.  They must be pretty confident about this perv being guilty.

 

Ten victims.  Sick inbred animal.

Story updated this morning, police looking for more victims.

 

Officials from Prince George’s County said they are continuing to investigate and identify more people who may have been victimized by a school volunteer accused of recording video of children performing sex acts.

 

According to police, detectives discovered Carraway had about 40 videos of the victims and the crimes took place at the elementary school during the school day on school grounds as well as at the Glenarden Municipal Center, Theresa Banks Memorial Aquatic Center and in private homes.

 

"As soon was the allegations were confirmed and the arrest was made, we immediately took steps to assist the students and families," said Prince George's County Public Schools CEO Kevin Maxwell. "First, there was a meeting with parents at Judge Sylvania Woods Elementary School and we have provided counseling and psychological support for students and families upon request."

 

“This is a painful situation for the county to think a person that we entrusted would deliver everlasting harm to our young people, our babies,” said Prince George’s County Executive Rushern Baker. “It breaks our hearts in Prince George’s County.”

They talk about the Kik app, which is also what was used in Blacksburg, VA between the 13 year old girl and her alleged killer.

Md. parents demand answers as 12th victim is identified in child-porn case

 

A meeting at a Prince George’s County elementary school roiled by child pornography charges drew hundreds of parents and grandparents Thursday night, many of them angry and demanding to know how a school volunteer was able to make videos of children performing sex acts on school grounds during the school day.

 

Police initially identified 10 victims in the case, but by Thursday that number had grown to 12, and officials in the suburban Maryland county said they think more victims may be identified as the investigation continues.

 

Deonte Carraway, 22, of Glenarden had been volunteering at Judge Sylvania W. Woods Elementary since September. He has been charged with 10 counts of felony child pornography and has admitted creating dozens of videos, in which he sometimes can be seen or heard directing children ages 9 to 13 to perform sex acts, police said.

 

How in the world was this allowed to happen? Aren't volunteers vetted? How can a volunteer hire in September be completely trusted with no supervision?

The schools will, hopefully, become safer in the near future. If not, something harsher will have to be done. Public schools have been Passing The Trash just as well as The Catholic Church.

"A Momentous Victory for S.E.S.A.M.E. and School Children Across the Country!
 
December 11th, 2015
 
Yesterday, President Obama signed the education bill reauthorizing the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), which includes an extraordinary measure to protect students from sexual predators in federally funded schools. Passing the Trash, the all too common practice of aiding and abetting educators who are allowed to quietly resign amidst allegations of sexual misconduct against pupils and gain employment in another school, will no longer be lawfully tolerated. This victory for students in K-12 schools has been a battle fought for decades by S.E.S.A.M.E. leaders. Today brings a sigh of relief, renewed hope for the work that remains and immense gratitude to Senator Pat Toomey and Senator Joe Manchin III for their unfettered commitment to safeguard America’s school children.
 
Our resolve is bolstered as we continue efforts to rid our schools of those who seek to betray and abuse. While we celebrate today’s victory, we’re somewhat disappointed that a critical portion of Sen. Toomey’s stand-alone bill was left on the cutting room floor. The mandate for all states to conduct, comprehensive and uniform background checks for all school personnel, contractors and volunteers was not included in the ESEA. Incredulously, a handful of states do not conduct background checks on school employees, at all. State background checks vary widely: some states only check criminal histories in their state alone while others cross-check their state and surrounding state histories, and still others thoroughly check state and national databases. The latter is what S.E.S.A.M.E. proposes to be established as the national standard. It is inconceivable that adults placed in school settings with impressionable, malleable and vulnerable children are not thoroughly vetted to be deemed fit to serve in such a position of community trust. As Sen. Toomey remains steadfast in his commitment to pursue this essential measure of protection, we pledge our support for his continued efforts to protect his children, your children and our children.
 
Passing the trash has left schools from coast-to-coast with a pool of mobile molesters who remain unidentified until they strike again and harm another child. With the funding of Erin’s Law, which is also a pearl woven into the ESEA, more children will be afforded prevention education that will promote recognition of dangerous behavior and courage to tell. While this is a great step forward, it is a baby step because it puts an overwhelming responsibility on children to stop the predators in their midst. Grooming; the meticulous, premeditated methods predators use to gain physical access to children are subtle and highly visible to the trained bystander. Grooming is a form of luring and must be defined as a reportable criminal offense just like it is in internet crimes against children laws. Training of all adult stakeholders; parents, faculty, volunteers and ancillary staff to recognize and report grooming is the key to intercepting physical sexual abuse. Training for all educators that includes maintaining proper boundaries, self-assessment of boundary violations and treatment programs for educators at risk of offending must accompany child prevention education. 100% of educator sexual misconduct is perpetrated by adults. Ending this predation requires training adults to “spot it and stop it.” Our recent victory in Pennsylvania with the passage of the S.E.S.A.M.E. bill is a model we hope all states will adopt to ban Passing the Trash, define grooming as a reportable offense and mandate annual training."

Facing federal and state charges now,

 

http://wtop.com/prince-georges-county/2016/02/carraway-now-faces-federal-charges-in-prince-georges-abuse-case/

 

The man at the center of a child sex abuse investigation in Prince George’s County is now facing federal child pornography charges and has been indicted on a battery of state sexual abuse charges, officials announced Tuesday.

 

Deonte Carraway, 22, once a volunteer aide at a county elementary school, now faces eight counts of manufacturing child pornography in U.S. District Court. If convicted of all eight charges, he would face a mandatory minimum of 120 years in prison, effectively a life sentence, said U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein.

 

The federal charges are in addition to six state charges of child sex abuse, various sexual offenses and assault for the abuse of one child. A Prince George’s County grand jury handed down the indictment Tuesday.

Maryland school aide sentenced to 100 years in prison after sexually abusing at least a dozen boys

A former Maryland school aide who confessed to sexually abusing children was sentenced Thursday to 100 years in prison.

Deonte Carraway, 24, was indicted in 2016 on 270 charges of child abuse and porn, and in January pleaded guilty in federal court to recording at least a dozen boys engaging in sexual activities inside of Judge Sylvania Woods Elementary School, where he volunteered, Fox 5 DC reported.
