    OR - James Auchincloss for child pornography, Ashland, 2008

    I've been waiting a long long time for this. I've written about Jamie on several other threads but I think he's earned his own. Can we hear, once again, from all the neighbors and community members who said that Jamie is such a nice man and keeps a lovely garden? Just a misunderstanding, maybe?

    He photographed little boys in our town in public!! He hung out at the YMCA pool. Hear that, Mercyneal?? He's been active in community events for years. He's had access. IMO, he's pleading in order to keep the sordid secrets, secret. I could have told these men that Judge Schiveley doesn't brook with child porn traders.

    Shame, shame, shame.

    Now, can we hear who the little boys in the images are? This man lived three blocks from me for over ten years. I have nine sons and I'd like to know.

    Auchincloss to plead guilty to sex abuse felonies in plea deal

    "Ashland resident James Auchincloss, half brother of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, will plead guilty Wednesday to two felony counts of first-degree encouraging child sexual abuse as part of a plea deal to avoid trial, the Jackson County district attorney's office said today.

    Co-defendant Dennis Vickoren of Eagle Point will plead guilty to two felony counts of the same crime, said Deputy District Attorney David Hoppe. The hearing will take place at 11 a.m. before Jackson County Circuit Court Judge Mark Schiveley."

    and

    "Scott Clay, a former Jacksonville city planner, will plead guilty at 11 a.m. today to one count of second-degree encouraging child sexual abuse, Hoppe said...."

    and

    "....In the summer of 2008, Ashland police began investigating Auchincloss and Vickoren in connection with child porn. In October police searched Auchincloss and Vickoren's homes and found graphic images of young boys, according to search warrant affidavits.

    Police have said they believe Clay, Auchincloss and Vickoren all traded the images......"

    An interesting earlier article from our local paper in June 2009:

    http://www.dailytidings.com/apps/pbc...WS02/906110326

    News of child pornography investigation draws concern
    Some Ashlanders rush to the defense of James Auchincloss


    "The news that police are investigating Ashland resident James Auchincloss, half-brother to the late Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Eagle Point resident Dennis Vickoren for possession of child pornography has left many locals shocked and upset.

    Since publishing the story a week ago today, the Daily Tidings has been inundated with e-mails and phone calls from concerned locals. Some want to know why the news wasn't reported sooner — and others wonder why it was reported at all...."

    and

    "..."My immediate reaction was indignation. I know James. He's a very generous, kind person and I was appalled that you could put this in the newspaper without any charges being filed," said Ashland resident JR....."

    Daily Tidings City Editor Myles Murphy said the newspaper decided to publish the story because editors felt locals had a right to know about the child porn investigation.

    "This was not a story we could sweep under the carpet," he said. "A well-known man in position of authority with at least one local group that works with children [Oregon Stage Works] was being looked at by police in an investigation related to child pornography. People had a right to know what was going on....."

    A little backstory here. Jamie was turned into LE by a former assistant and friend who saw the images on his computer. That young man was vilified by many in the community as being spiteful in response to some monetary debt. To me, not one whit of the motivation matters. What matters is that the child porn was there, it got reported, and a man who had a great many opportunities in life now has a reputation as a sexual felon. He should have considered those issues before he collected the images. The fact that he photographed local children gives me the creeps. I realize that the children were clothed (as far as I know) but I don't want pedophiles drooling over my children's beautiful photos.

    Here's a link to the backstory and the comment about him hanging out in the "kiddie pool". Thankfully, after this story ran, he gave up his membership at the YMCA. One really wonders why a man of Auchincloss's financial means didn't belong to one of our private sports clubs?

    http://www.dailytidings.com/apps/pbc...WS01/906040321

    There's also several links at the page above including one to a story about why Jamie was ostracized by the Kennedy family. The man is now 63. I wonder how many children he has victimized?

    Thanks for this. Very interesting. Maybe that's why Dr. Ayres used to go up to Ashland!

    From the Oregonian:

    ".....Though the charges are eligible for a sentence of probation, Auchincloss told The Associated Press that he expects to have to serve some time in jail or prison, and has been examined by a psychologist who reported to prosecutors that he had no pornography problem.

    "Whatever they thought the problem was has been cleared up," Auchincloss said. "I will be a guest of the state. They'll see me and I'll see them and we'll come to an understanding."

    Auchincloss said he will spend any time behind bars writing.

    "I am planning to write a lot while I am a guest of the county or the state or whatever they want to call me a guest of," he said. "I am working on something. Whether it becomes a memoir or play, or a made-for-TV-movie. It has all the elements of everything you don't want to be and have......"



    Am I just angry and jaded or does Mr. Auchincloss act as if he's making light of the seriousness of these charges? No pornography problem? I tend to disagree. This is not about an unexpected life experience. This is about the victimization of children.

    Ermmmmmmm yeah I'd say the guy is making light of it, Izzy. Cocky son of a gun.

    Not that it should matter a whole bunch, but he is the son of the guy Jacqueline's mother married? Is he her mother's son? If that makes sense?


    O.K. never mind. I see it here. He's her brother. Have the same mother. JMO when someone has the same mother they aren't "half". Again not real important.

    O.K. here's an article back from 2003 I believe where pervie explains why he moved to Ashland.

    Oh no mention that he collects child pornography and stalks little boys.

    YES!!!!! Not as much time as I would have liked but jail time. The Jackson County Jail is not a pleasant place and they really don't like child porn collectors. Thank you, Judge Schiveley.

    BREAKING: James Auchincloss begins serving jail term for child porn guilty plea

    James Auchincloss - who as a boy carried the wedding train of his half-sister Jackie up the aisle as she married John F. Kennedy - was sentenced Wednesday in Medford on two counts of encouraging child sex abuse.

    Each count carries a 30-day jail term and 3 years of probation. Auchincloss will have to register as a sex offender and attend counseling. He reported immediately to begin serving his sentence. It wasn't immediately clear if the terms could be served consecutively...."

    You know Belinda, I knew it wasn't going to be for long. I think the little trick Auchincloss tried to pull last week by saying that he knew he was going to be a "guest" of the county or state was just that. I truly believe he thought he'd get off with only probation. I think Judge Schiveley trumped him by slapping on the 30 days.

    No, it's not what I really want but I'll take it. Our county jail is not a nice place and will be a huge wake-up call for Auchincloss. Last time I checked, there are no silver spoons in lock-up. His case has had quite a bit of press in our valley so no doubt some of the inmates will know what he did. What I'm pleased about is the probation and the lifetime registry and the public validation that this man is a slimeball. What? I'm not hearing from all those who jumped to his defense back when he was charged. They were indignant about the bad press this wonderful man had received. Hmmmmm. I wonder how many of them visited at Auchincloss's fine home with their grandsons. Those people might want to give that some time to sink in.

    Also, it is affirmed that the photos were of naked prepubescent boys posed in sexual poses.

    Dennis Vickoren, a former Rogue Valley Transit employee and Scott Clay, the former Jacksonville, OR City Planner also pleaded guilty to similar charges. The three were reported to have exchanged photos. This case has drug on for almost two years. I have to think that those years were not pleasant for the three men.



    I also found this:

    http://www.wtop.com/?nid=104&sid=2026913

    ".....Auchincloss and Vickoren kept an extensive collection of child pornography in books, slides and computer files at Auchincloss' hillside bungalow.

    Prosecutor David Hoppe said investigators reviewed the images seized from Auchincloss' home and identified local residents in them, but after interviewing them were unable to elicit any complaints of actual sexual abuse of a child.

    Defense attorney Carl Caplan told the judge that none of the photos depicted sex acts, and Auchincloss and Vickoren "did not realize they were operating in the world of child pornography."

    Auchincloss and Vickoren will pay $1,000 in assessments and forfeit seized images deemed to be pornography. Others will be returned to them.

    Caplan read a statement in which Auchincloss apologized to the victims of his crimes, declaring the acts unacceptable and stupid...."

    So, I'm assuming this means that they get to keep the photos deemed non-pornographic of local boys. Now, that does not make me happy. That's plain creepy.

    Hope the police keep a close eye on Auchincloss and friends. Can we assume they will be listed as RSO's now?

    Poor Jackie O. Apparently she had a falling out with him years ago when he sold Kitty Kelley some bad information for her book about Jackie. As they say, you can choose your friends, but you can't choose your relatives.

    Auchincloss will have to be a lifetime registrant. I'll have to check on the other two. Here's a snip from an earlier article:

    http://www.nypost.com/p/news/regiona...#ixzz0x1ERGeGY

    James "Jamie" Auchincloss showed an unusual obsession for his half-nephew John-John when the Camelot prince was just 7, sources said. He repeatedly asked the boy to pose for pictures, said one source, who added that Jackie didn't want him anywhere near John-John.

    By the 1980s, the Kennedy clan was so concerned by Jackie's half-sibling's proclivities that they warned Auchincloss, now 62, to stay away from the family, sources said.

    When Caroline Kennedy dropped her bid for a New York Senate seat in January, Auchincloss' neighbors immediately thought it was related to an Oct. 14 search of his Ashland, Ore., house, which turned up the child pornography.

    "My first thought was, 'Caroline dropped out because of Jamie.' They can't withstand that," said Carolyn Shaw, 56, who has lived next door to Auchincloss for 10 years and said she has put her house on the market because of the scandal.

    Those bombshell revelations come amid another explosive development: Auchincloss has acknowledged publicly that he likes to look at sexually provocative photos of young boys...."

    Vickoren received an identical sentence and will be a lifetime RSO as will their friend, Scott Clay:

    http://www.mailtribune.com/apps/pbcs...4/NEWS/8140307

    "Jacksonville's [OR] former chief planner will spend 20 days in jail for having a single image of child pornography on his work computer last year.

    Scott Clay, 56, also will register as a sex offender
    and undergo sex-offender treatment under a plea agreement signed Friday in Jackson County Circuit Court...."

    I am with you on this one, Belinda! 30 days is a tremendous insult to the victims and all victims of this revolting crime.

    And why is there no pic or booking photo? I say plaster his face all over everywhere!

    People are probably shocked that I'm not shocked. I'm biding my time. I don't think the story is entirely told yet. Remember, Judge Schiveley was the same judge who convicted our children's rapist of 12 counts and then sentenced him to eight days served. The rapist was ordered into community based treatment. We were shocked at the time but just relieved the ordeal was over (it's still not!!). But did the young man follow the rules and present himself for polygraphs and sexual history disclosures? No. And four months later, Judge Shiveley remanded Ryan Smith to the Oregon Youth Authority for ten years. My guess is that Judge Schiveley knows exactly what is going to happen when these men confront the requirements and rigors of treatment.

    As I said, I don't think the story has all been told. Here in Ashland, I honestly don't think that it's sunk in just how many photos of local children these men have. It's going to, though.

    Mr. Auchincloss is in segregation at the Jackson County, OR jail. Seems they received a death threat against him. To me that seems awfully "convenient". I have a feeling that Jackson County is just watching out for his safety due to liability issues.

    And FWIW, I've seen lots of comments at different sites about the "best attorney money can buy", etc. I beg to differ. Mr. Caplon is a fine attorney, I'm sure. He's well known in our valley. He was our children's rapist's first attorney. However he also presented himself to the judge at our children's rapist's Post Conviction Relief trial stating that he'd failed to represent his client appropriately. Although I know Mr. Caplon to be a snappy dresser, I found it almost laughable how he was dressed at the PCR trial--rumpled and mismatched clothing. I mean no disrespect of Mr. Caplon at all but I would have to say that money can buy far more experienced "big names" than Mr. Caplon.

    Here's a photo of Auchincloss, as a "guest" (his choice of words) of the county:

    Auchincloss's two friends have different times set for their 20 and 30 days in jail.

    Not that I keep an eye on this man, or anything. Oh no. I could have told the man that if you are 15 minutes late for your court ordered therapy or miss a check in, they'll hook you up every time. I could have told him about his particular PO and how he doesn't fool around or have much of a sense of humor.

    I have to say it is refreshing to see that the parole and probation officers are actually applying the same punishment to each and every offender. My son had a violation and spent 3 days in the same jail this month but then moved over to the work center for the remainder of his 2 weeks. He loves the work center as he enjoys the food and the work. He's homeless and PVs are so frequent when you must move your sleeping spot each night. I wonder if Auchincloss will ask to move to the work center. You get to clean out the stables at the Expo Center.

    I also wonder if he's in segregation this time around.

    Auchincloss back in jail


    December 27, 2010

    The half-brother of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis spent Christmas in jail after allegedly violating his probation for his August conviction on child pornography charges. James Auchincloss, an Ashland resident, was arrested Dec. 22 and lodged at the Jackson County Jail, where he is being held without bail. He is scheduled to be released Jan. 21. Auchincloss, 63, is not believed to have committed any new crimes but is suspected of violating the terms of his supervision..."

    and

    "We're investigating a possible breach of his supervision, so that's why he's currently incarcerated," he said. Auchincloss' probation officer, Glenn Sandy, initiated the arrest, after becoming aware that Auchincloss may not have complied with the terms of his supervision..."

    and

    "...We're consistent with the way we supervise all offenders," he said. "Mr. Auchincloss is no exception." This is the first time Auchincloss has been back in jail since Jackson County Circuit Court Judge Mark Schiveley sentenced him on Aug. 18 to 30 days for two felony counts of first-degree encouraging child sexual abuse, Gaoiran said. As part of a negotiated plea agreement with Jackson County prosecutors, Auchincloss acknowledged possessing and distributing photographs of prepubescent children, images prosecutors described as lewd and lascivious in nature.

    Schiveley also ordered Auchincloss to serve three years' probation, during which he must stay away from children and undergo sex-offender treatment. He must also be registered as a sex offender for the rest of his life....."

    And another photo of the man who is a "guest" of the county. At least he's still not smiling. Maybe the reality is starting to sink in:
