    TX - Dr. Bernard Albina for sex abuse, child porn, Houston, 2009

    http://www.khou.com/topstories/stori....6273b407.html

    Dr. Bernard Zacharia Albina, 69, has been charged with aggravated sexual assault, continuous sexual abuse and two counts of promotion of child pornography.

    Albina is accused of sexually abusing a young male for more than a decade, and investigators say he wasn’t the doctor’s only victim.

    Albina was arrested Tuesday morning at his Piney Point home.

    Investigators began looking into the case in 2007 when a young man contacted them.

    Police say a 24-year-old man came forward to say Dr. Albina started sexually assaulting him when he was 6 years old, and that the sex continued into adulthood.

    “A member of his family was paid to let him be with Albina and the money was paid to keep him quiet,” said Roscoe.

    It turns out, the surgeon was generous with many charitable groups, but was also generous with his victims. A copy of Albina’s probable cause charge alleges that the doctor paid more than $250,000 to families to gain access to their children.
    In addition, investigators say Dr. Albina purchased at least two other homes, allowing his victims and their families to live there free of charge. In one case, they lived in one of the homes for up to 10 years.

    Police searched several properties and seized financial records, 14 mini DVD tapes, 138 CD/DVDs and multiple pornographic images.

    “Not all pedophiles have 82 binders with notebook pages where they’ve cut out research, news articles, rapes, murders and brutal deaths,” said Roscoe.

    In addition to raiding his home, HPD also raided a storage unit on Westpark, a false office front on Crawford Street, where Albina allegedly brought boys, and the orthopedic surgeon’s practice on St. Joseph Parkway.

    Police say that there are two other victims, who are now teenagers, and another victim, who is now an adult. They cannot locate the adult victim.

    Houston police described him as one of the worst pedophiles they have ever seen. Investigators said Albina molested at least four children, starting when they were as young as 5 years old.

    I agree -- the crude way of saying this is they pimped their child to be abused. They are as much a slime as the doctor.

    He needs to be charged with sex trafficking in a federal court as well-he essentially bought these children from their family members for the purposes of sex. I would love to know the cases he was obsessed with-perhaps he was a murder of bodies as well as souls.

    Ugh it just gets worse! It's horrible to know this guy was a DR in our area! Thank God I never met him.

    A Houston doctor accused of buying his way into the role of adopted grandfather for several families may have paid one of his victims $155,000 during 10 years of sexual abuse to keep the boy quiet.
    He said Albina also bought houses where he let families live for access to the children, who were between the ages of 4 to 6 when Albina allegedly began abusing them.

    “I know of two houses for certain, but there may be more,” Devlin said.

    Devlin also said an adult guardian of one of the children may face charges for taking money for access to one of the children. He said statute of limitations may hinder prosecution, but a charge could be levied as part of an ongoing conspiracy.

    They recovered hours of videotaped sexual acts with the children, which they still are processing.

    According to court documents, the investigation began in January 2007, after one of Albina's victims told police he had been abused, including oral and anal sex, from 1988 to 1998, starting when he was 5
    Every parent should be on high alert when an adult takes special interest in your child. This guy was married and had children.

    Albina was known as "Uncle Bernie" to young boys, a sweet old man they couldn't help but trust, but in criminal complaints there are allegations making veteran officers sick. "Bernard Albina is one of the most obsessed child molesters I've ever seen since I've been in the unit," said J.T. Roscoe, Houston Police Department.

    Albina is accused of molesting four boys for several years from the time they were about five years of age. Two are now adults. The others are pre teens. The alleged abuse dates back to 1988, and prosecutors say it was still happening as early as this month. "He is so smooth, so patient and so slow he builds them up to where he can abuse them," said Roscoe
    Roscoe says the proof is on camera. In search warrants executed two weeks ago, investigators seized more than 130 DVDs, allegedly of Albina with the children. They're seen in his mansion, in his cars and at a private medical office on Crawford, which prosecutors call his "love shack."
    Oh I feel for the officers who had to watch this. I do not think calling it a love shack is very professional. These children were abused in the worst way there.

    I agree that "love shack" is not very professional, BUT after watching such horrifying pictures I will cut them alot of slack for any acting out they might do afterwards as long as it doesn't hurt anyone. I can't imagine how I would react if I ever saw such a thing. My thought is that I would probably drink ALOT, maybe for months.

    Ugggggggg.........

    It wouldn't suprise me if some families hadn't tried to report this guy before or noticed something weird but were told to shut up and keep quiet.

    Human trafficking statutes might take care of the limitations...I would hope and pray Houston has the feds involved because of the child porn angle. They have to hit this man with everything they can, and he will not be well received in a fed penitentiary.
