    This is an interesting and sad case. The reason I say this is that this man pleaded guilty to crimes that many many men are pleading guilty to every single day. What makes this case unique is that this man was a firefighter, schoolbus driver, churchgoer, real estate agent, parent.....and monster. It's also unique as we have an excruciatingly detailed but poignant document which describes exactly what a pedophile does and exactly what a young child experiences. The words of the little girl will stay with me for a long time.

    Michael Keith Benson, 41, of Nixa [MO], pleaded guilty before U.S. District Judge Richard E. Dorr to an information that charges him with receiving child pornography. Under the terms of today’s plea agreement, Benson also agreed to plead guilty to state charges of child molestation, statutory sodomy, and sexual exploitation of a minor child in the Circuit Court of Christian County, Mo. Today’s charge replaces a federal indictment that was returned on Oct. 15, 2009.

    By pleading guilty today, Benson admitted that he used a file-sharing program to download a video of child pornography from the Internet on Jan. 22, 2009. Benson possessed more than 600 images of child pornography, including images of children under the age of 12, images of sadistic and masochistic conduct, and images of a minor with whom he had contact....."

    The felony complaint:

    Remember, the child is eight and the man is a 260 pound adult. This occurred at a child's birthday party. She said, "I was scared to tell my parents because they like him and I didn't think they would believe me." It looks like they most certainly did, thank goodness. Because of the guilty plea, the child did not have to testify.


    And another article which adds a chilling detail:

    "Benson was a substitute bus driver for the Nixa School District during the 2008-2009 school year...."



    And here's his MS:

    I think it might be a bit out of date as I really don't think he's driving that fire engine any more. He says:

    "I like to stay busy. I am a Captain for the Nixa Fire Protection District, I am also a REALTOR in the Springfield Metro area, and I also work at Silver Dollar City properties in First Aid. I love to spend time with my family. I am normally easy to get along with, but I do have my days...

    Must have been "one of those days".

    Missouri.

    Izzy I'm not going to read what this poor baby had to say. Of course they liked the POS. Sounds like a swell guy. She's a brave little girl.

    It is important though people understand that your kids and God forbid it ever would have to happen...........your kids don't just come skipping home and tell you something so horrific happened to them. Usually they don't even have words for it. Often they have no da*n idea what it is.

    Michael Benson shame on you. I hope you sit on a tack. Have a swell time locked up. You sure do have your days, creep face.

    Thanks for an enlightening article and links, Izzy.
