    CA - Juvie Hall Mental Health Worker Arrested With Large Amount Of Child Pornography

    Thomas Perez Jewell aged 53 of Martinez is supposed to be helping troubled kids. This same man who claims to be aiding at risk youth in Juvie had so much child pornography on his home computer that local LE had to call in the FBI to sort it out.

    Thomas Perez Jewell's Facebook tells us he's a founder/teacher/mentor/life coach/poet.

    He let's us know he works with troubled teens and their parents, and awakening adolescents amongst other wonderful things. That's just swell.

    Unbelievable. This guy has quite an amount of education that's for sure. He has been a teacher some 28 years and has taught every grade from kindergarten on up.



    He's got a whole gig going here. Very scarry. He's supposed to be helping children not hurting them.

    Every time I read about these child porn pervs that work in facilities for kids, I can't help but wonder if there's a bunch more just like this one working there.

    No telling what else we'll here about this creep.
    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    TM the same thing goes through my mind. It saddens me and angers me all at the same time. It makes me wonder how many of those already troubled youth these kind of perp's have hurt.

    There was an excellent expose done a few years ago about the old Oregon State Hospital in Salem (yes, that one). Many did not know that children were actually housed there in Ward 40. I happened to know as my son did two separate year long stints there when he was 11 and 17 for repeated attempted suicides. Oh, the stories he now tells of non-stop abuse.

    Anyway, once I became active on WS, I became curious as to whether anything untowards had ever been reported at our State Hospital. Man, did I get an eye-opening account. One of the men arrested for abusing young girls explained how he did it. It was simple. He created a uproar elsewhere (not hard with unstable children) and then took a girl around a corner. Yep, that's all it took. That place was ancient with long dark halls and huge doors with massive keys and few cameras. The children slept on thin matts out in the long halls so the nurses could keep an eye on them. You had to be on best behavior to earn a blanket.

    One might think I'm speaking of 50 years ago. No. This was in 1997 and again in 2003. Shocking. If an abuser has the will, there's a way. The children are at the mercy of those who care for them.

    http://blog.oregonlive.com/oregonian...ore.html#91904

    Scroll down to "Betraying a Fragile Trust"

    ".....The children's stories have never been told, in part because hospital executives and state officials have fought to keep them from the public.

    In one case, the state paid an additional $50,000 to secure the silence of a victim whose attorney was poised to hold a news conference on the Marion County Courthouse steps. A lawyer in the office of then-Attorney General Ted Kulongoski told a judge in a closed-door hearing that the secrecy was needed to protect the hospital from political attack by the Legislature.

    The scope of sexual abuse at the hospital was brought to light by The Oregonian's examination of records and interviews with more than 50 current and former patients and employees....."

    The world is full of one land mine after another when you are a troubled child. My heart goes out to all those children in out of home placements who are being hurt as I type this post. May you find your voice.

    Let's hope that the floodgates open!! And don't forget that the California State Hospital at Napa's executive director (not far at all from Martinez), Claude Foulk, was arrested earlier this year for child rape. Thirteen men have accused Foulk.

    The pedophiles place themselves where the vulnerable children are...time and again.

    Not looking good.

    Filly--I admit I did not do my assigned reading. The guy was in the Peace Corps in Africa (where he discovered his passion.....for teaching that is)!! He taught classes about these subjects:

    "Anger Management, Pro-Social Skills, Moral Reasoning, Life Skills, Impact on Crime Victims, Vocational Education, Gang Diversion, Substance Abuse Education and Treatment, and Grief and Loss Groups."

    Did he not read his own hand-outs. This is beyond the pale. What'll you bet that he has a specific profile of victim and that he's set himself up near these kids for at least the last 28 years. Heck, he probably got a running start.

    The man did not just work with adjudicated youth. He worked with mentally ill adjudicated youth. They've been able to identify one local victim (great work!!) and a new victim has stepped forward. I'd like to know where Jewell worked prior to Contra Costa County. He has risen suspicions before:

    http://www.correctionsone.com/arrest...tation-counts/

    Calif. Juvenile Hall counselor faces 46 molestation counts
    Counselor possessed a "vast amount of child pornography," and is accused of victimizing a young boy depicted in some of the images



    "....For nearly a decade Jewell has worked for Contra Costa Health Services' mental health division, which contracts with Juvenile Hall in Martinez, where he was assigned. Martinez police began the investigation of Jewell before transferring it the case to Pleasant Hill because that's where he lives.

    According to current and former co-workers who contacted Bay Area News Group upon hearing the news about Jewell's arrest, this is not the first time his behavior has elicited concern. In July 2009, accusations that he was using his work computer to browse a website soliciting prostitution were brought to his supervisors but no disciplinary action was taken...."

    and

    "....Jewell obtained a master's degree in counseling psychology from JFK University in Pleasant Hill in 2000 but is not a licensed therapist...." [wonder why?]

    and

    "...They [former clients] did, however, express misgivings about his behavior with the at-risk and special-needs boys he worked with, many of whom were referred to him through his association with the Pittsburg-based Lucas Center, a collective of mental health specialists who focus on family-oriented counseling...."

    more at link (the article also mentions that he saw clients in his home)


    From another site:

    http://www.martinezgazette.com/news/...olestation-and

    Martinez juvenile hall counselor charged with 49 counts of child molestation and possession of child pornography

    "....Jewell’s business is based in Martinez with a satellite office in San Antonio, Texas, and offers to “travel the United States and the world,” in order to offer his advertised expertise and workshops in the areas, among others, of aggression, replacement, goal setting, self-esteem building, moral reasoning, parenting classes and self-awareness.

    On the calendar section, the site indicates Jewell was scheduled to conduct workshops in Los Angeles and Orange Counties from November 22-26; San Antonio, Texas on January 15-19, 2011 and on the island of Guam in February of 2011...."

    and

    "...Investigators urge anyone with information on the case or possible victims to call a dedicated PHPD tip line at 925-676-1273.

    “People can call and leave a message and a detective will get back to them within one business day....."

    Heads are rolling. The county was not following protocol and that fact had been brought to their attention by a co-worker, who resigned her position just before the arrest. Jewell was not being properly supervised. Lots of names in this article and an awful lot of "he said, she said".

    Why is it that a man with a dynamic personality is allowed to skate--especially when child safety is on the line?
