U.S. Attorney Complaints Prince Andrew Won't Cooperate with The Epstein Investigation

London (CNN)Lawyers representing alleged victims of convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein have threatened to subpoena Prince Andrew after the royal was accused of "zero co-operation" with US prosecutors.

In November, the prince said he was "willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency" if required after he appeared in a BBC Newsnight interview in which he was questioned over his friendship with Epstein.

But Geoffrey Berman, US attorney and the lead prosecutor in the inquiry, said Monday that the Duke of York has not responded to requests for an interview.
Prince Andrew has not cooperated with attempts to interview him about Jeffrey Epstein, US Attorney says

"It's fair for people to know whether Prince Andrew has followed through with that public commitment," said Berman, the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York.
"To date, Prince Andrew has provided zero cooperation."

Gloria Allred, a US lawyer representing some of Epstein's alleged victims, told BBC Radio 4's Today program on Tuesday: "This is ridiculous. It's just not acceptable."
She added: "I don't know whether Prince Andrew thinks he's above the law or whether he thinks that he doesn't know anything... but excuses just don't cut this anymore."

Lisa Bloom, another US lawyer representing five women who say they were abused by Epstein, told BBC's Newsnight on Monday that her clients were "outraged and disappointed" by Prince Andrew's failure to cooperate.

"If Prince Andrew truly has done nothing wrong then it's incumbent upon him to go and speak to the FBI at a time that's convenient for him and say what he knows," she said. "Perhaps he can help bring other people to justice." 

Can the US subpoena Prince Andrew?

A subpoena is an order that compels someone to appear in court or to submit evidence.
Antonios Tzanakopoulos, associate professor of Public International Law at Oxford University, told CNN that a US court "can always issue a subpoena" but they cannot make someone comply if they are in another jurisdiction, including the UK.

Allred told the BBC that lawyers in the civil lawsuit could seek to subpoena Prince Andrew if he were to travel to the US. "Certainly, if he ever came back to the United States, that would be one of the first things that I'm sure a lot of lawyers, including me, would want to do," she said.

If he were to travel to the US on an official visit, it is likely he would have some form of immunity, although it might be different if he were on a private visit, added Tzanakopoulos. 
Is there another way Prince Andrew could be made to give evidence?

Countries including the UK and US have a Mutual Assistance Treaty, but this is reserved for criminal matters, says Tzanakopoulos. "There is no criminal matter pending in regard to Prince Andrew," he said.

Epstein died by apparent suicide in August, so his alleged victims have instead brought a civil suit against his estate, claiming damages. The FBI's criminal investigation concerns Epstein's alleged co-conspirators.

Virginia Giuffre, one of Epstein's accusers, claims she was trafficked to London by Epstein in 2001 when she was 17, and forced to have sex with his friends, including Prince Andrew.

The prince has emphatically denied any form of sexual contact or relationship with her.

The US could make a request to the UK's High Court under a law that provides assistance in civil matters, says Tzanakopoulos, but this process is "so permissive it's easy to give reasons not to do it."
Are the UK courts likely to help?

The UK makes its own rules on how to comply with a request relating to a proceeding in a foreign court.

The Evidence (Proceedings in Other Jurisdictions) Act 1975 states that "a person shall not be compelled ... to give any evidence if his doing so would be prejudicial to the security of the United Kingdom."

Tzanakopoulos believes that "if we're talking about the Queen's son, arguments could easily be made that it is prejudicial."

Anna Bradshaw, a lawyer at Peters and Peters Solicitors, told CNN that even if a request were made for Mutual Legal Assistance in a criminal case, the prince could respond in a UK court with all the accompanying protections available under UK law.

Even if such a request were granted or refused, Bradshaw said, the public would not necessarily know about it -- UK government policy is not to reveal the details of such requests.

There was a Prince (UK) Shaking in His Boots, Now With Epstein Gone Does It Mean Good Times Again?

PRINCE Andrew has been accused of licking the toes of a teen masseuse during their sexual encounters — one of which she describes in court papers as “the longest ten minutes of my life”.
The manuscript by Jeffrey Epstein’s former sex slave Virginia Roberts is among 2,000 legal documents released just hours before his death.

Virginia says her account is “99 per cent true” but her own lawyers have described it as “fictionalised”.
It details three alleged sexual encounters with the Duke of York.
Andrew, who is currently on holiday with his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson and the Queen in Balmoral, strenuously denies any sexual contact with Virginia — whose surname is now Giuffre.
She says she first met the royal dad of two on a trip to London in 2001 when she was 17.
Epstein and his British ex-lover Ghislaine Maxwell were also there.  Virginia says Andy correctly guessed her age and showed her his “terrible pelvic smashing” dance moves at London nightclub Tramp.
She wrote: “Moving his hands across the curves of my body, he was whispering sweet nothings into my ear and kissing my neck.
“I would just giggle not really knowing how to reply to an aging man with a bad smile.”
They went back to Ms Maxwell’s house, she says, and she and Andrew had a bath together.

“He was adorning my young body, particularly my feet, caressing my toes and licking my arches.
“We retired to my bedchamber for the longest ten minutes of my life.”
She claims the second encounter was months later in New York, while the third was at Epstein’s Caribbean island.
The paper, from 2011, was released by a New York court from a defamation case between Ms Maxwell and Virginia, who is now 35 and a mum of three.

Buckingham Palace said last night: “This relates to proceedings in the United States, to which the Duke of York is not a party.
“Any suggestion of impropriety with underage minors is categorically untrue.
“It is emphatically denied that the Duke had any form of sexual contact or relationship with Virginia Roberts.
“Any claim to the contrary is false and without foundation.”

The Epstein Arrest Looks Like We Might Find Out The Rich, Political Men in The Sex Child Market

Federal prosecutors are fighting to ensure Jeffrey Epstein doesn’t get to wait out his sex trafficking trial at the same $77 million Manhattan mansion where he allegedly abused teens for years. 
At a bail hearing in a Manhattan federal court Monday morning, assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller argued that the 66-year-old Epstein poses a significant flight risk, since he owns at least one private jet and several mansions, including a private island. Plus, there’s also a locked safe full of diamonds and cash in his massive Upper East Side estate, attorneys said — and an expired passport with Epstein’s photograph, although it’s under a different name and lists him as a resident of Saudi Arabia.  “The evidence is already significantly stronger — and getting stronger every day,” Rossmiller said. 
Judge Richard Berman delayed deciding whether Epstein can be released on bail or held until his trial until he reviews more evidence. He’s expected to make a decision Thursday. In the meantime, Epstein is being held at the federal Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.
Investigators discovered a “trove” of nude photos at the New York estate where they executed a search warrant last week. And, attorneys alleged in a court filing Friday that Epstein used his wealth to pay off possible co-conspirators — potentially to block them from testifying against him — after the Miami Herald published an investigation detailing his alleged crimes in November 2018. 
Several of Epstein’s alleged victims were sitting in the court gallery Monday, according to Courthouse News reporter Adam Klasfeld. 
The financier is accused of sexually abusing dozens of underage girls in a sex trafficking ring that spanned his estates in Manhattan, Palm Beach and New Mexico. Epstein was arrested on sex trafficking and conspiracy charges earlier this month, and pleaded not guilty to allegations that he sexually abused minors — some as young as 14 — between 2002 and 2005. At least 12 new accusers came forward since his arrest, with fresh allegations not connected to the earlier cases.
The charges came nearly 11 years after a controversial, Florida-based plea deal allowed Epstein to serve a little more than a year in jail on solicitation charges after he was plagued by similar accusations, and registered as a sex offender. 
Epstein’s defense attorneys argued Monday that he’s already complied with the terms of that plea deal, and hasn’t been accused of a sex crime since 2005. Judge Berman responded: "How do you know that?
Epstein’s counsel said he should be able to return to his Manhattan mansion with an ankle-monitoring device. They argued that the 2008 plea agreement, which was made in Miami under then-U.S. Attorney Alex Acosta, should apply to other districts — like the U.S. Southern District of New York. His attorneys have said Epstein would be willing to de-register and ground his jet if he could wait out his trial from home. 
"A spotless 14-year record of walking the straight and narrow, complemented by an exemplary 10-year history of diligent sex offender registration and reporting, is compelling proof he was able, once the prior investigation commenced, to conform his conduct to the law's dictates," Epstein’s counsel wrote in a legal filing Friday. 
The fallout over the soft Epstein plea deal led Acosta last week to step down from his current post as President Donald Trump's labor secretary.

Glee's Noah Puck Found Guilty of Child Pornography Could Get 4-7 Yrs

Mark Salling, who starred on Fox’s hit show “Glee” as Noah “Puck” Puckerman from 2009 to 2015, pleaded guilty to possession of child pornography and faces four to seven years in prison, with 20 years supervised release.

The actor will also pay $50,000 in restitution to each of the victims who request it and register as a sex offender.

Salling was first arrested for possession of child pornography in December 2015 when his residence was searched by the Los Angeles Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce.
In May 2016, Salling was indicted on two counts of child porn, and charged with receiving and possessing child porn on his laptop and a USB flash drive. The laptop, USB flash drive, and a hard drive seized from his home reportedly contained thousands of images and videos depicting child porn. After the case was referred to federal authorities, he pleaded not guilty in June 2016.

In a plea agreement filed with the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on Tuesday, Salling, pleaded guilty to “one felony count of possession of child pornography involving a prepubescent minor.” The filing states that more than 50,000 images and videos of child porn and erotica were found on his laptop, in addition to about 4,000 images and 160 videos of child porn found on his USB flash drive.

Child Molester Priest Blames God Because His Gambling Loses

The only reason I'm posting this story is to highlight the issue again of Priest going for young boys. Boys, particularly if they are not sure of their sexual orienttion they would hesitate to expose the priest or person of authority because they would be afraid of what they erroneously think could also expose them as well. If these priests would only see this as an illness they can get help for instead of blaming it to any excuse under the sun. If you are doing something that hurts someone else it needs to be stopped on your own or with help. Being put on a sexual register for life and doing jail time should not be what makes one of these guys change course. They might never be cured;  Im not an expert but they can be stopped from hurting boys when they are vulnerable. If a priest or coach knows of this problem, why hang around boys? Kids can be many things because they have not formed a character which carries them to adulthood. Being around food when you have an addiction to food means you are not serious about changing.

A New Jersey priest says he was trying to get revenge on God for poker losses when he collected computerized child pornography at his weekend home in northeastern Pennsylvania, according to his attorney and court records.
The Rev. Kevin Gugliotta was sentenced Thursday to 11½ to 23½ months in the Wayne County jail, receiving credit for 10 months he’s already served. He pleaded guilty in March to a single count of disseminating child pornography after prosecutors dropped dozens of other charges that he possessed and distributed child porn.
Pretrial records show the 55-year-old Gugliotta told probation officers he felt God was attacking him when he lost poker tournaments and games and got “revenge” by collecting the porn.
“That was his reason,” defense attorney James Swetz said. “He’s not happy that’s how he felt, as the judge indicated. There are other ways to handle issues and handle anger.”
Jim Goodness, director of communications for the Archdiocese of Newark, said Gugliotta has been removed from public ministry since church officials learned of the investigation in September.
Additional discipline, including possible removal from the priesthood, is possible “now that the process in the courts has been completed,” Goodness said. “We’ve also kept Rome abreast of the situation.”
The Monroe County, Pennsylvania district attorney’s office last August was investigating child pornography and determined some had been uploaded to a computer at Gugliotta’s weekend home in Gouldsboro. The tiny Pennsylvania hamlet is about 90 miles west of Holy Spirit Church, where he served as parochial vicar in Union, New Jersey.
Monroe County authorities alerted those in Wayne County, who tried to search the Gouldsboro home in September. But authorities couldn’t find Gugliotta at home and couldn’t lure him there using a ruse so they could search the computer before he had a chance to destroy the evidence.
Wayne County authorities wound up tracking down the priest at the New Jersey church where they interviewed him and found his laptop computer in the church rectory.
Gugliotta had previously been suspended from ministry in 2003 for allegedly molesting a teenage boy in the 1980s. But because the incident occurred when he was still a layman and before he entered the priesthood, the Archdiocese of Newark ruled he could not be punished and quietly reinstated him in 2004.
He went on to have a long career in the priesthood, including ministering to youth groups.

Michael Jackson’s Library of Child Porn Comes Out


There are very few people that are able to keep their secrets after death. The fact remain that no matter how well we hide another personality or secret,  wether is wearing pink panties when you box or wrestle in the ring to being gay after a life of condemning gays.

Michael Jackson having been so loved by so many for his music and talents which had a beginning when he was very young and from there on he grew up in front of the cameras. People thought they knew him because they had known him all their life’s. He was not the artist who had a hit record and then the public would not buy anymore of their music for what ver reason and then they would dissapear.  Michael helped bring in new music.

 As a pop singer he was great in presenting his music and himself in ways that seemed so different. The way he dressed, the way he moved with not even an ounce of fat in his body. He was also a great choreographer, dancer and showman. Once the spot light was on him he would light up like a real star in the celestial heavens. Still he started changing in front of everyone but everyone seemed to be on denial. He tried to make his skin white as possible and as much as science could help him with that endeavor but people,  particularly black people excused it as some case of physical ailment. Imagine the greatest black entertainer in the world changing his skin color to white. You would think people would stop buying his music and he would get booed on stage. No such thing happened, he could do no wrong.

After a lot of talk that Michael was living with and among kids whose star struck parents would lent them to Michael for a life time adventure spending a night, a weekend or more with the king of pop. Parents thought they won the lotto to have Michael meet their kids and be interested in their kids. White or hispanic kids was his taste but nobody saw anything twisted in that.

People said if there was something wrong with the way Michael treated all those kids eventually one of the kids would probably come out with the secret since people believe that most kids can’t keep a secret. Well,  they were wrong about these kids not being able to keep a secret but highly right about a kid coming out with child molestation story. The first one Michael was able to successfully buy out and continued as if nothing had happen. The second one to come out publicly had 15 more in the background who told the investigators what uncle Mickey was doing to them. They told the the District attorney what uncle Mickey’s little cigar looked like when you look on the reverse side.

Michael was arrested and very serious charges were brought against him which if found guilty he would spent the rest of his life behind bars. The DA optioned a court order and had Michael satrap down and show his penis. Show his penis on the reverse side and bingo. No kid could make up this story unless they had seen it with their own eyes up close. Feel bummed out that Michael bought out the parent of the first kid now they had a solid case against uncle Mickey.

The prosecutors didn’t have a chance! Just like in the case of OJ Simpson the would face a case of star struck jurors who would not buy that super star Michael Jackson would molest kids. He just ‘like’ kids so much he didn’t think of what he was doing and did things like sleeping with them (kids)but it was only in a very pure way they said. Michael did think a lot about it and his thoughts were  anything but pure because Michael was a ‘pedophile'. He had his brain wiring crossed like other adults like go beyond just a good bye or hello. Much much more. But people only believe what they believe and the truth in these cases only comes out in death and in the case of Michael Jackson it has only come out in drops and drips except now you can see what Michael was doing and the props he had which the prosecutors knew about from the kids but could never find and even if they had presented all that evidence probably the jurors would have thought it was planted by the cops trying to bring a black man down…I mean a white man down or just a bi color man down.

New images have been released of the November 2003 raid of Michael Jackson's home by 70 members of the Santa Barbara County District Attorney's Office and Sheriff's Department which uncovered his collection of pornography and photos featuring young boys naked.
They show Jackson's home, from the arcade room to his bedroom and the many life-size mannequins he had throughout his Neverland Ranch. Many of these mannequins were superheroes like Superman and Lara Croft.

This raid also revealed for the first time the King of Pop's secret closet, hidden in the back of his bedroom and kept closed with three deadlocks. It was in here that he kept memorabilia like a signed photograph of Macaulay Culkin, stuffed animals and games, and naked photos.
Culkin signed his photo with the message: 'Don't leave me alone in the house.' 
There were also racing cars, Disney merchandise and a shocking number of dolls. 
Radar spoke with Santa Barbara Senior Assistant District Attorney Ron Zonen about the case as he was part of the prosecution team that took on Jackson in court.

"A lot of this stuff was used to desensitize the children, and Michael admitted taking one child after another into bed with him for long periods of time," said Zonen.
"We identified five different boys, who all made allegations of sexual abuse. There's not much question in my mind that Michael was guilty of child molestation."
Jackson was ultimately acquitted in 2005 after being charged with seven felony counts of child molestation and two felony counts of providing an intoxicant to a minor under the age of 14 when Gavin Arvizo came forward claiming that he had been sexually assaulted by the singer.
Gavin was a 13-year-old cancer survivor at the time of the alleged incidents.
The claims made by Gavin were similar to the ones made a decade earlier when another 13-year-old boy, Jordan Chandler, came forward to say he had been molested by Jackson.
No charges were ever filed against the singer however after police discovered the Chandler's father may have been attempting to extort Jackson and the young boy's mother claimed Jackson never touched her son.

Jordan however was able to perfectly describe Jackson's buttocks, pubic hair, and distinctive marks on both his testicles and penis.
The mark on the penis could only be seen if it was lifted and was otherwise not visible.
In the end, Jackson settled with the Chandler family for $22 million and no charges were ever filed against him in court.
Once the trial was over Jackson - who had been facing up to 20 years in prison if convicted on all charges - left the country, moving to the island nation of Bahrain, located in the Persian Sea.
He eventually returned to the United States and had been preparing for his comeback tour in 2009 when he was found unresponsive inside his Holmby Hills home.

Paramedics arrived on the scene and were unable to revive the singer, who they declared dead at the age of 48 while still at his residence.
The cause of death was later ruled to be acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication caused by drugs that were being prescribed to him by Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 2011 and charged with the singer's death.
He was released in November 2013 after serving roughly half of his four year sentence.

Grisham comes on the side of Child Porn Users

NEW YORK - JANUARY 27:  John Grisham attends Barnes & Noble Union Square to signs copies of "The Associate" on January 27, 2009 in New York City.  (Photo by Bryan Bedder/Getty Images) *** Local Caption *** John Grisham
One of the ways money makes you powerful is that you can say what you want and don’t give a hoot about who you offend. Up until this time Grisham is been not present on arguments dealings with any type of sex.
Well not caring that he is got a demographic of readers that are going to be appalled when  they learn that he’s come on the side of child porn holders.
On the other hand is me, I don’t have any money to talk about but my blog is completely independent and I express my opinion hoping not to offend but not changing my writing style because Im going to offend and loose readers.  I am against ALL child porn because even though there are guys that get off on it,  I don’t ...and know there is a child on the other end and a market to get those children wether is enticement or kidnapping to get them to do what they do which in most cases they are not fully aware how those pics are going to follow them in the future. Many stars of today have been embarrassed at having naked pictures of them turn out. Adam Gonzalez, Publisher
Now, You can put away your fake third boob, because John Grisham just found an even better way to guarantee that your name will appear in headlines around the world for all the wrong reasons. The best-selling author, who has a new novel coming out next week, told The Telegraphthat the U.S. justice system treats people who look at child pornography too harshly. "We have prisons now filled with guys my age. Sixty-year-old white men in prison who've never harmed anybody, would never touch a child," he said. "But they got online one night and started surfing around, probably had too much to drink or whatever, and pushed the wrong buttons, went too far and got into child porn."
He went on to describe the plight of a "good buddy from law school":
His drinking was out of control, and he went to a website. It was labelled "sixteen year old wannabee hookers" or something like that. And it said "16-year-old girls." So he went there. Downloaded some stuff - it was 16 year old girls who looked 30.
He shouldn't ’a done it. It was stupid, but it wasn't 10-year-old boys. He didn't touch anything. And God, a week later there was a knock on the door: "FBI!" and it was sting set up by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to catch people — sex offenders — and he went to prison for three years.
There's so many of them now. There's so many "sex offenders" — that's what they're called - that they put them in the same prison. Like they're a bunch of perverts, or something; thousands of ’em. We've gone nuts with this incarceration ...
Grisham added that he has "no sympathy for real pedophiles," saying, "God, please lock those people up. But so many of these guys do not deserve harsh prison sentences, and that's what they're getting."
Clearly, this is a very clever way to win over new readers. The internet is rife with images of 16-year-old girls dressed up to look like 30-year-old women, and anyone who's ever Googled while drunk knows it's nearly impossible to avoid all the child porn. Why should someone spend a few years in prison for downloading that stuff to their computer — you know, if they're a white guy?
