    FL - WSVN's Bill Kamal charged in sex case, Fort Pierce, 2004

    South Florida television personality Bill Kamal was arrested in Fort Pierce Sunday as part of a federal investigation of alleged sexual predator activity, according to law enforcement officials.

    The popular chief meteorologist for the WSVN-Fox affiliate is accused of arranging to have sex with a minor, sources said.

    Kamal, 47, of Miami Beach was arrested in Florida's Treasure Coast at around 1 p.m., when he showed up for a scheduled meeting that he had arranged via the Internet with an underage person.

    Instead, he was met by a detective who arrested him, a source said. At last check, Kamal was being held at St. Lucie County Jail on state pornography charges. He is expected to make his first appearance on separate federal charges in U.S. court today.

    When it rains it pours! I would love to have seen this guys face when he met the detective instead of the underage sex partner he expected.

    I wonder what his station will say about it?

    They fired him this morning. The station just said that they had no other choice.

    This isn't the first time something like this happened. Before he came to Miami he was in the DC market when I lived up there and he had gotten busted by the Nat'l Park Police for getting frisky with another guy in a parked car. He was never charged, but he left WUSA 9 in DC shortly thereafter.

    Some people will never learn.

    There's a similar case in Cincinnati that I've been semi- following. Everybody loved this guy, according to the news accounts.


    http://www.cincypost.com/2004/03/08/hill030804.html

    WCPO reporter Stephen Hill convinced four minor boys -- three brothers and a cousin -- that a woman wanted to have sex with them, but only if they wore blindfolds and submitted to whatever "she" wanted, prosecutors said today.
    When two of the boys became suspicious and took their blindfolds off during the sexual acts, Hamilton County Prosecutor Mike Allen said today, they saw that Hill was actually the woman performing sexual acts on them, prosecutors added.
    Hill, 45, was indicted today by a Hamilton County grand jury on 12 charges -- eight counts of sexual battery and four counts of unlawful sex with a minor -- carrying a maximum prison sentence of 60 years.
    The indictment alleges he used his "temporary or occasional disciplinary control over" the teens as their mentor to abuse them.
    "Beginning in early 2003, (Hill) is alleged to have told the boys that he knew a woman named 'Dawn' who wanted to meet and have sex with them," Allen said today.
    "He told them that 'Dawn' insisted on remaining anonymous so that the boys would have to be blindfolded during the encounters and could not touch 'Dawn,' but would have to simply submit to whatever 'Dawn' did to them." ……..
    ~~

    I think he is still in jail. The station fired him. If you read the rest of the story, he videotaped the encounters.
    Just my opinion

    Thought I'd resurrect this thread since Local 10 News in Miami is doing a five part interview with Bill Kamal.

    I was almost feeling bad for him until I read the full text of the appeal letter that he wrote to Judge Moore. It was absolutely insulting.

    What a coincidence!

    http://www.kwqc.com/Global/story.asp?S=3333511

    This guy used the fantasy abuse ... he didn't *really* think he was talking to a girl underage!

    WAUKEGAN, Ill. A former Chicago T-V sportscaster has been convicted of soliciting a minor for sex over the Internet.

    A Lake County Circuit Court jury returned the verdict last night against former Chicagoland Televison News Sports Director Rob Goldman. The jury deliberated six hours.

    Goldman says he will appeal. He was accused of conversing for 16 months with an undercover agent claiming to be a teenage girl. He was arrested after arranging a meeting.

    C-L-T-V fired Goldman shortly after his arrest in 2002.

    Goldman remains free on bond. He faces up to six years in prison when he is sentenced July 16th.

    From my reading of the articles, it was a young BOY he was after.
