Well, I wanted to know what happens to the perps. By sheer luck, I stumbled upon an article about Jodi Vinson's trial today and that reminded me to check out some of these names. There's a disconnect here that I still don't like. You have either be very close to this situation or paying attention or you just won't see the progress.
Anyway, here's another article about one of the accused. Mug shot alert!!
"Daryl James McClelland, 55, of Bartow is facing more than 75 charges, including sexual battery on a victim under 12 years of age, lewd molestation and possession of child pornography.
"We questioned him, he made the statement, of the children he babysits, he chose the very youngest to sexually abuse and to make child pornography with because that very young child couldn't tell on him
, couldn't verbalize what was happening to them," said Sheriff Grady Judd...."
"....This perverted individual here had made 180 still photos of children who he was babysitting and another 32 movies of child pornography of this child he was babysitting," said Sheriff Judd as he held up a mug shot of Daryl McClelland.
The child in those images was identified as a four-year-old
he babysat in 2008 and 2009 while the child's mother worked. Detectives say McClelland encouraged the child's parents to allow him to babysit rather than trust child care organizations. It's being called a classic case of a child predator grooming a parent to get access to a child....."
".....McClelland reportedly did not seem to regret his actions.
"We asked him why he didn't express regrets and he said, well, the child was very young and won't remember what happened
," Sheriff Judd said. The sheriff went on to say McClelland admitted to detectives that he first sexually abused a child when he was 12 years old
