    <snip>

    We learned today in court Monday that the investigation against him dates back 30 years.

    [Stephen] Young appeared before the judge through video conferencing, dressed in a dark blue uniform from the jail.

    He did not make any comments and barely had any reaction when the judge formally read the charges against him.

    Prosecutors say those charges include four counts of lewd conduct dating back to 2005, and as recent as 2008. The four victims are children ranging in ages from one month old to 21 months old.

    We also learned that more charges are expected.

    The prosecutor says they know of 13 people who have come forward saying they too were victimized by Young.
    .........................
    Young turned himself in after he retired.

    And now authorities are learning the abuse extends back 30 years and more victims are being identified.

    The prosecutor would not explain or elaborate anymore because this is an ongoing investigation. More charges are expected.

    Just sick over this.

    (I think I need a cocktail now.)
    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.

    Ohhhhhhhhhh, he turned himself in? I kept reading and rereading several articles and the link our TM gave us and was looking for how he got caught.

    He waited until he retired? I doubt he'll get his pension where he's going.

    That's weird he turned himself in. Often career cops will just blow their brains out if they can't live with themselves. Sorry to put it that way if it offends anyone. Then again maybe he wants the punichment of like ya said Sunnie of being a locked up pedophile who was a police officer.

    Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh and he was some kind of officer in several schools? Cha-low. The link indicated it was a grammar school and then he moved on up. Why? No doubt someone saw something they didn't like. Completely horrific. Sad. Vile. Unfathomable.

    Filly--So, question. This guy retired and then turned himself him. The monster, Chris Bowersox from Bakerfield--the cop who got caught with horrid child porn and transcripts of conversations about murder and bestiality and little boys. He too was allowed to retire. What's that all about? With Bowersox, they had the goods on him in November '09 and even did a SW. They waited for him to retire about three weeks ago and then arrested him. I don't get it. Does the pension go to the family possibly? Bowersox only has an elderly dad and a male partner (I don't know if it's a civil union.)

    Just curious.

    I just re-read the article and there's an interesting angle. Young is accused of assaulting babies 1-21 months of age. I would assume that those are most likely relative children. I can't imagine him having much access to children that young as a LEO.

    Then, he's placed in elementary schools, junior highs, and high schools and they think there's more victims. Indiscriminate, possibly? Not typical, that's for sure.

    And kbl, I think it's actually kind of rare for victims to come forward en masse. Most see what's happening to the ones already in the system and watch from the sidelines. In many ways, it's there greatest nightmare come true. Either these kids are related and sharing the same strong support system or LE is doing a fine job of making this as painless as possible. I think for many victims, they just want the guy caught and hung. For whatever reason, many don't want to add their voice to the outcry. JMO

    Yeah Iz it's a big deal. First off you don't want him arrested while still a law Officer because it's gonna look bad on the department.

    As for who gets the pension I think it varies in each State. Probably more in each city. Like here and sorry if I go into it, but here as soon as my dad died and he had only been retired a year. He died at 60. He was on 36 years. He dropped dead on Christmas morning and as of December 26th that pension got cut in half on my mom. So in that way they got a break by dad dying with only a year retirred. Plus she then automatically had to start paying for her own medical insurance. It's a huge burden.

    Now as for a crime I am betting the family gets it. If they fired him nobody would get jack. Thus the department letting him retire if they were aware of it prior. OR he wanted to tell in the first place but needed his family to get the loot. I know someone in law that can tell me. I'll ask.

    Nothing worse than a disgraced department. Nothing worse than working all those years and nobody gets your pension. Oh as for Bowersox his partner wouldn't get it. Well not sure what State he's in. Next of kin would.

    We used to joke our family like "Daddy if you're gonna die be sure to do it on the job". If he had his heart attack on the force while maybe chasing someone or even just in the precinct my mom wouldn't be struggling like she is now. Horrible to say, but true.

    Certainly none of that made sense. LOL I'll ask though. Usually they let them retire though if they're lousey criminals. That's a brotherhood. Although I don't think they'd ever ever ever stand by a baby rapist.

    It makes me so sad to hear about you losing your Dad at such a young age. I lost my Daddy last year at age 83 and it's been a killer. He and I have wine and 30's-40's love songs every Saturday night. You'll notice I never post from 6-8 on Saturdays. Our time together and my crying time. He was a wee wily Irishman who gave me the gift of loving me totally. He was poor as a churchmouse--had many high profile jobs but just gave his money away. I do have his typewriter (as I've promised to write some day) and his driving cap. Drove a MG back in the day.

    kbl, I'm not sure I understand your post. Why wouldn't these be relatives? The only other way I can imagine him having access to such little babies is if he's worked in the medical field--maybe EMT--or if his family ran a day care. What do you mean "shame the heck on them"? Who? The babies' moms? Maybe he's the dad or a relative. I'm not trying to argue but just trying to understand your position.

    I used to work with a lady whose father molested the entire family. Horrible acts that you couldn't imagine. She said that one of her sisters lets him babysit for her. I asked how she could allow him around her children knowing what a monster he is. She said that her sister denies it ever happened. Maybe that's what's going on here. The victims may have been to so young, they don't remember it, or the just blocked it out of their memory.

    "...Prosecutors said Young is estranged from his family, including his wife and family members are cooperating with the investigation...."

    and

    "...Boise police and the Ada County Sheriff's officials say the charges involved incidents in the past five years and did not appear to involve on-duty work.

    Sheriff’s officials say all four victims — all children between the ages of one month to 21 months — were known to Young and the abuse occurred at various homes in Ada County between 2005 and 2008. None of the victims lived at Young’s home...."

    If not relatives (note, they are estranged), then maybe day care kids? Or just another highly helpful grandpa-type pedo-perv all too willing to watch the babies?
