    OR~Child sex abuser, Kevin Heasley caught with child porn during treatment

    I initially thought that we had Jaycee to thank again for the increase in RSO supervision, but this bust happened only two weeks after she was rescued. I wonder if POs immediately stepped up the pace or if Oregon has a history of "dropping in" more often.

    Many might not know that RSOs are shown photos of children, pets, men and women during treatment to determine where their proclivities lie. I've heard about it and read about it. I don't know if they use true child porn or what we would call "child erotica".

    One of the issues here that really bothers me is that the treatment doesn't start until after the person has waited in jail for his trial, been convicted, served his time and then been released. Then....they start treatment. I'm not so sure that's timely enough. I'd far rather the years in prison be put to better use than just watching TV.

    Federal judge in Portland sentences man to 15 years in child pornography case


    "Kevin J. Heasley served nearly six years in Oregon prisons for sexually abusing a 10-year-old boy. He got out in October 2008 and went into intensive therapy to curb his deviant urges. But on Sept. 16, 2009, Multnomah County probation officers dropped in on Heasley and found him in his bedroom with another convicted sex offender, Terrence L. Sundsmo...."

    "....A search of Heasley's place turned up a computer with child pornography on the screen, along with electronic storage devices that held thousands of similar images. On Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Robert E. Jones weighed how much prison time it would take to help Heasley and protect the public...."

    and

    Heasley said he'd been shown images of naked children during his treatment, which put the idea in his head to view more child pornography. But he said he had not touched another child and hoped he never would. Jones reminded Heasley that some of the images uncovered at his place included babies. "You obviously are a very disturbed individual," the judge said. "The fact (is), you are an ingrained, lifelong pedophile and you're not going to get over it....."

    He got 15 years. All that's going to do is keep Oregon's children safe for whatever time is required to be served of the 15 years. That's something, to be sure. But something doesn't jive. The judge wonders how long a sentence would "help" him (just sitting in his cell twiddling his thumbs??) and then succinctly says "you're not going to get over it". So, in 12 years or so, we'll be dealing with Heasley again.

    I did not know that victims of "commercial" child porn production have written impact statements which are read into the record at sentencing hearings. That's a wonderful idea. Does anyone know if there is treatment available in a federal prison?

    Man with thousands of child porn images sentenced to federal prison

    "....The court reviewed written statements submitted on behalf of five victims who were among the scores of children abused in the creation of the images Heasley, who has been previously convicted of sex crimes against minors, possessed and distributed. Government documents disclosed that Heasley had more than 9,000 images of child pornography, many involving infants and toddlers, in his possession at the time of his arrest...."

    and

    "....Heasley, who was prohibited from associating with other sex offenders as part of his probation, was discovered in the company of Terence Lee Sundsmo, who was also on probation and had been twice convicted of sexually abusing a young child. Both men were arrested at the scene for violating the terms of their probation...."
