    PA - Michael True for sexual assault of 11yo girl, Greensburg, 2011

    Even I'm speechless over this.

    Michael True of Greensburg, PA was released from prison a few months ago for sexually assaulting a girl that was 9 years old. True again assaulted the girl who is now 11 years old.

    WTH?

    According to this article a relative who is named said another relative allowed True into the home when he "just showed up". Named relative kept an eye on him and saw him assault the child.

    WTH?

    LE say he's been on the Sex Offender Registry for ten years so my guess is this is not his only victim.

    This poor child. He assaults her and then they leave him back in to do it again? Anybody in that house getting locked up?

    I just watched him, and I'm glad that I did," Knopp said. "He should be locked away and the key should be thrown away.

    Are you serious?? WTH KNOPP needs to be put in prison endangering a child for one count ... OMG

    Just watched????? Lord, help us all. That poor child. Her worst nightmare came true. Everything that anyone promised her within the family, in therapy, or at court, flew right out the window. Why should she trust? She was not kept safe.

    The relative has a MS page but there isn't much on it. She looks to be a young woman but certainly old enough to quietly dial 911.

    GS, I'm no expert, but from reading alot of these cases there's often a condition of parole that the perp can not go near the victim.

    Makes me wonder who this guy is to these people?

    No matter they need to be locked up as well. Then again what happens to this poor child.

    Also it says he's been on the registry for 10 years. This crime did not happen ten years ago. Soooooo what happened prior?

    This is a real life nightmare. I feel sick for the poor little girl. Physically sick.

    they should all be charged and the child removed to custody of the state

    her life would've been difficult enough trying to heal from the first assault
    and now, now, how can she ever trust that she will be safe again?

    I'm really wondering if there's a part of this story missing. ITA with everyone, it makes no sense. Judges can certainly place restrictions of the convicted ie. no contact with the victim but we all know that doesn't work so great.

    I wonder how this man is connected with this child. I'm thinking that it must be a father, uncle or older brother and that's why he was allowed in. I also wonder about the others just observing. There's several possibilities. Are they terrified of this man? Are they all a bit "slow" and didn't quite know how to react? Or was the act very quick like a hug and a swift fondling--ie. rubbing her bottom? That would certainly violate his probation and would rise to the level of indecent contact. It would also totally unhinge the child, IMO, especially that family members were present.

    I'm thinking it might be a combination of several of these factors. Someone obviously called LE as he was confronted in the hallway, and confessed. He was either leaving or had been allowed to stay by the family and LE came to the door and called him into the hallway. How did LE know to come in the first place, however?

    there has to be more to this story. There simply must be. How do these morons open the door and allow access to this man's victim, YET AGAIN???? This poor child. I cannot even begin to imagine her sense of betrayal and terror when confronted with this man YET AGAIN????!!!!!

    I have no more words, I am spitting mad for this child's sake. I am gonna sit on my fingers for a bit and let impatientredhead chime in on this one. She will unleash a far more articulate rant on this than I find my self capable of at the moment. I have no doubt when she reads this one there will be hell to pay.

    They should have shut the door in his face when he showed up at it.

    Police said two women who live in True's apartment building called police to tell them they saw him touch an 11-year-old girl.

    That paragraph just confused me more. They lived in his apartment building...yet they are two of the three witnesses? Did he live in the same building as the girl? I'll throw in my WTH?

    And then we have this one:
    The victim's relative, ****** Knopp, said she was at the East Pittsburgh Street home when True showed up. She said she wanted him to leave, but another relative allowed him to stay. Knopp said she kept an eye on True and witnessed the assault.
    "I just watched him, and I'm glad that I did," Knopp said. "He should be locked away and the key should be thrown away."
    Channel 11 News was unable to get in touch with the relative who allowed True back into the home where police said the assault happened.
    http://www.wpxi.com/news/26654009/detail.html
    First name redacted by me.

    It appears that Knopp wasn't the one that let him stay, not that makes this better in any way.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    I have the distinct impression that True held some sway/control over Ms. K, the witness. On her MS page, she looks to be a teen. She might have said far more to the reporter. I'm going to give her a pass until we hear more details.


    ETA: Hmmmm. I was expecting some huge and menacing looking guy. He's not a happy looking fellow but he's also not a large and imposing man. He's 5'5" and 140 lbs. That does NOT mean that he can't be intimidating but it just makes me wonder. Were all the people in that apartment small women who feared him?

    Agreed. Ms. K there appears really young. In other words she's not the person paying the rent. Just for the fact the guy is a creeper would make her a tad fearful IMO.

    His protruding frontal lobe there is enough to make me a little freaked out. Not that would stop me from jumping out of a tree when he least expected it and well whatever. Up close and personal it's either he's related, he's got something the other women/people in that place want, or they are all afraid of him.

    I'm gonna choose Door number 2. He just showed up out of nowhere. Well, he's been "home" almost 6 months and now shows up? I'm betting he had something they needed or wanted. Why else would someone allow the abuser back into a home with that poor kid?

    Meanwhile I do not think he lived in the same apaprtment building. He was compliant and hopefully the PO checked where the child lived. I looked up his addy on the map as it said Apartment A which makes me believe it's like a duplex or something as opposed to a sprawling building.

    Interesting he's a mere two blocks or so from the court house.

    Our prayers are going out for you young lady. We are so sorry you have been failed by so many.

    They soooooooooooooo better be getting help for this young girl. Somebody better be. I can't even think of it without getting sick and losing my breath. Her fear!!!!!!!!!!!!
