    Teacher Helen Goddard has been jailed for 15 months for having sex with an underage female pupil

    Teacher Helen Goddard has been jailed for 15 months for having sex with an underage female pupil

    A public school music teacher was yesterday jailed for having a lesbian relationship with a 15-year-old pupil – but told she could continue seeing her when she leaves prison.

    A court heard that trumpet mistress , 26, helped weave a web of lies so the ‘ vulnerable’ girl could stay in her flat overnight, and took her for a weekend in , where they joined a gay pride march.

    Judge Anthony Pitts jailed Goddard for 15 months, saying: ‘This case is so serious an immediate sentence of imprisonment is inevitable.’

    But despite hearing from the girl’s parents the devastating effect the five-month sexual relationship had on the teenager, he rejected a prosecution request to ban the teacher from contacting her victim for five years, claiming it would be ‘unnecessary, unkind, and cruel to the victim’.

    Goddard will be allowed to write to her from prison and will be able to see her in private the moment she is released from jail, probably halfway through her 15-month sentence.

    The teacher punched the air in victory when she realised her relationship with the pupil, who is still underage, could continue.

    The judge refused to ban Goddard from ever being alone with under-age girls, rejecting another prosecution request.

    Goddard, who wept as she was taken to the cells, will have to sign the sex offender register and is banned from teaching children for life.

    Her barrister Anthony Heaton-Armstrong claimed that she was ‘subjected to a lot of pressure from the child’, and added: ‘Miss Goddard is quite young for her age.’ He insisted the pair continue to ‘love each other very much’.

    Goddard is a former child prodigy who was one of only six British teenagers to play at the opening ceremony of the Sydney Olympics in 2000.

    She went on to become student union president at Trinity College of Music in , where she earned her degree.

    She is known to have had several boyfriends, including Jonathan Ansell, the tenor who found fame as a member of the operatic ‘boy band’ G4.

    She started work at the victim’s £13,000-a-year girls’ school in 2006 and ran a lunchtime jazz club, earning her the nickname ‘the Jazz Lady’.

    The head of music at the London school – which cannot be named for legal reasons – told Southwark Crown Court in a statement: ‘The girls all adored her, and would flock to her room at break times.

    ‘I did speak to her about the dangers of being over-friendly and too popular.’

    But Goddard, a slim blonde who faced the court in tight blouse, waistcoat and pinstripe trousers, ignored the warning and fast became increasingly close to her victim, one of her trumpet pupils.

    betrayed our trust

    The girl, who had been traumatised by her parents’ separation several years ago, told police she and her teacher went for coffees together after lessons, and began confiding in each other.

    By January of this year, the girl invited the teacher to join her parents dog walking on Hampstead Heath – and then began to visit Goddard’s flat in Greenwich with her father’s knowledge.

    Flirting and text messages followed and in February the pair went for a walk near the school, and kissed for the first time. Days later, they shared a bed at Goddard’s flat.

    From then on, the girl would stay with her teacher every Friday or Saturday night, telling her parents she was with a schoolfriend.

    Ex-boyfriend: Jonathan Ansell was previously in G4

    Ex-boyfriend: Jonathan Ansell was previously in G4

    Prosecutor Regina Naughton said: ‘Miss Goddard was aware it was the girl’s first sexual relationship.’ She said the pair used sex toys and handcuffs.

    By June Goddard was so brazen that when the girl told her parents she was visiting her older sister in Paris, she in fact stayed in a hotel with her teacher, and joined her on a gay pride march there.

    The girl told two fellow pupils about her relationship with the teacher, however, and the school became abuzz with gossip.

    In July, ‘a concerned parent’ sent anonymous emails to the school to report the relationship, and called on the head: ‘Please act quickly’.

    The parents were informed, police were called – and when the mother tried to track her daughter down, she discovered she was at Goddard’s home.

    The child admitted everything, but said she loved her teacher.

    Analysis of phones showed the girl had sent her teacher 157 texts, while the teacher had sent 60 back, many sexually explicit.

    One from Goddard to the child said: ‘It’s going to be a beautiful day. I love you. You are on my mind all night.’

    Goddard refused to answer police questions, but at a hearing last month admitted six specimen counts of sexual activity with a child.

    Cases of sexual activity with a child under 13 are deemed to be assault as those so young are held to be incapable of giving consent.

    Those over 13 are capable of consenting, but sexual activity with them remains illegal.

    Haleigh Cummings Case: More Nasty News on Stepmom Misty Croslin

    Friday, Sep. 25 2009 @ 2:58PM

    An inmate’s letter says Misty took Haleigh to a party, where the girl overdosed on Oxycontin

    The latest news on the disappearance of 6-year-old Haleigh Cummings points a brighter spotlight on her stepmom, Misty Croslin. But there’s one big problem with the information: It’s all coming from people in jail, the kind you don’t want to use for a job reference.

    The first news comes from Kristina Prevatt, a friend of Misty’s currently in the Putnam County Jail on drug charges. Prevatt claims in a letter — be patient, it takes a moment to load — that Misty took Haleigh to a party one night, were she got a hold of Oxycontin and overdosed.

    “We were all over at a party at Chad’s house and Haleigh got a hold of some OxyContin and died,” she writes to someone named Donnie. “We supposedly freaked out and Greg put her (Haleigh) in a black bag in my car, and we took her to a pond by the Mondex…”

    Haleigh_Cummings-pink-dress.jpg
    Rumors continue to swirl on what happened to the 6-year-old

    But the letter indicates Prevatt is actually getting this info second-hand from detectives questioning her in the disappearance. And as she tells it, police got the information from someone named Joe, who supposedly told them what happened to Haleigh and pegged Prevatt for helping dispose of the body.

    Given the unreliability of the characters involved, who knows how much of it’s true?

    Then we have Greg Page — alias “White Boy Greg” — another leading citizen arrested this week on drug possession charges. He’s claiming he hung out with Misty prior to Haleigh’s disappearance, and says he had sex with her just days before the little girl vanished.

    While this, if true, would have no bearing on Misty’s possible role in the case, it does speak to what seems to be an increasing pattern of duplicity. Misty‘s already flunked a polygraph test. And her brother Tommy, also in jail on gun charges, has blown up her alibi by saying Misty wasn’t home the night she disappeared.

    Finally, Misty was reported earlier this week to have fled town. Her lawyer, Robert Fields, says she simply went to Orlando for a short vacation with a friend. But lawyers are usually much more honest than inmates, so we’ll just have to wait and see how it all plays out.

    Long Term Effects of Sexual Abuse by a Female

    In a recent case in Texas a defense attorney, according to the media, made the following statement (the victim was 13):

    Winfield told jurors that if given probation, Cosgrove would not be a risk, and that the boy enjoyed the attentions of an older woman and was not traumatized.

    “It’s different with boys and girls,” she said. “I don’t believe he’s going to be scarred for life.” – Read the entire article here

    Comments like that are all to common in cases like that. In another case an attorney said “In my opinion he’s an advanced 14-year-old,”. Comments like these and others are simply wrong and offensive. Because I am seeing more and more reported comments like this I wanted to look at parts of a study that talked about the long term effects of sexual abuse by females. It has some interesting points that I would like to highlight (note all emphasis is mine):

    The Long-Term Effects of Child Sexual Abuse by Female Perpetrators: A Qualitative Study of Male and Female Victims
    Myriam S. Denov
    Journal of Interpersonal Violence, Oct 2004; vol. 19: pp. 1137 – 1156

    Despite the minimal research dedicated to addressing the long-term effects of female sexual abuse on victims, emerging studies have revealed that the general public and professionals working in the area of child welfare perceive sexual abuse by women as relatively harmless as compared to sexual abuse by men. Broussard, Wagner, and Kazelskis (1991) asked 180 female and 180 male undergraduates their perceptions of the effects of child sexual abuse on the victim. Participants tended to view the interaction of a male victim with a female perpetrator as less representative of child sexual abuse. They also believed that male victims of female offenders would experience less harm than if the victim was a woman or girl and the offender was a man. Similarly, Finkelhor (1984) found that his survey participants tended to view the sexual offenses of women as relatively insignificant. When he asked 521 parents about the seriousness of different types of sexual abuse, they rated adult female perpetrators’ actions with male and female victims as less abusive than those of adult male perpetrators with male or female victims.

    Now this might be expected of the lay person but professionals who work in the area of child welfare should know better. But then again think of how many of these professionals have the mother present when they are asking questions about sexual abuse to a child. How many of them even think to ask if the child has been sexually abused by a woman?

    Research on professional attitudes to different types of sexual abuse reveals comparable perceptions to those of the general public. For example,Hetherton and Beardsall (1998) identified gender biases in the decisions of socialworkers and police working in child protection. The authors presented police officers and social workers with identical case vignettes of sexual abuse involving either a male or female perpetrator. Both professional groups considered that social service involvement and investigation were less warranted when the perpetrator was a woman. Case registration and imprisonmentof the male perpetrator was considered more important by both professional groups. Denov’s (2001) research explored psychiatrists’ and police perspectives on female sex offending. The study found that both professional groups viewed sexual abuse by women as less harmful than sexual abuse by men. Moreover, efforts were made by psychiatrists and police officers, either consciously or unconsciously, to transform the female sex offender and her offense, realigning them with more culturally acceptable notions of female behavior. This ultimately led to a denial of the problem.
    And this group of professionals should know better also. Because of this many people who do mention they have been sexually abused by a woman are disbelieved or are told they are mistaken.

    If you want to see how this denial plays out just look at one label that is used for some female sexual offenders. They are called Teacher/Lover. Yet there is no corresponding label for male offenders. Is it not offensive to call someone who sexually assaulted a child a “lover”? I do not think it would go over well if they tried to put that label on some male offenders.

    This next piece is very important:

    The professional assumption that sexual abuse by women is less harmful than similar abuse by men has potentially dangerous implications for victims of sexual abuse by women and their offenders. If professionals fail to recognize sexual abuse by women as potentially serious and harmful, child protection plans will not be made. Consequently, children in the care of or in contact with a female sex offender may be at risk and remain outside of the realm of professional attention and statutory intervention. In addition, such professional belief systems may work to diminish the level of harm inflicted on the victim. As a result, the experiences of victims who come forward to disclose sexual abuse by women may be trivialized, leading to delayed referral to social services, or failing to provide victims with the care and the necessary support services that they require (Hunter, 1990; Denov, 2004). Moreover, professional minimization or disbelief of victims’ allegations of female perpetrated sexual abuse may actually exacerbate the negative effects of the sexual abuse, ultimately inciting secondary victimization (Denov, 2003b). In a similar vein, female sex offenders who are perceived by professionals as largely innocuous will not be held accountable for their actions and may be allowed to drop out of the child welfare and/or criminal justice system without warrant. In such circumstances, female abusers will not gain insight into their behavior and may continue to pose a risk to children.
    This next part looked at some of the data from the study:
    The average age of onset of the female sexual abuse was age 5 and ended, on average, at age 12, with the average duration being 6 years. 36% reported being sexually abused more than once per week, 21% reported being abused once per week; 29% reported being abused once per month. 14% reported a single incident of abuse.

    In total, 64% reported severe sexual abuse, while 71% reported moderate sexual abuse. 100% reported experiencing mild sexual abuse.

    93% reported that the sexual abuse was highly damaging and difficult to recover from:

    However, all of the victims who reported sexual abuse by men and women declared that the sexual abuse by women was more harmful and more damaging than the sexual abuse by men.

    For example, one female participant, whose father attempted sexual intercourse with her at age 5 and had intercourse and oral sex with her until the age of 11, reported that her father’s actions were the least invasive of all the sexual abuse that she had experienced. To her, the sexual abuse by her mother and her grandmother was far more traumatic:

    The [sexual abuse] done by my father was the least invasive. . . . The abuse by the females had far more of an effect on me than he did. . . . When looking at the big picture and the layers of hurt . . . out of all that happened to me, what my mother did was the absolute worst . . . far worse than what my father had done.

    There is a deeper sense of betrayal [with a female perpetrator]. It’s like there’s no safe place. How can a woman face a world that belittles and condemns us because we’re women . . . and still turn her hand against her own sex? That’s a bitter betrayal.

    100% reported a strong mistrust of women as a result of the sexual abuse experience.

    29% reported having sexually abused children at some point in their lives. The men were charged and convicted. The sexual abuse by the women was never reported.

    Woman, Heather Pino, Pleads Guilty To Having Sex With 14-Year-Old Neighborhood Boy

    September 25th 2009

    ROCHESTER, Minnesota — A woman made a plea deal Friday after being charged

    with sexual misconduct involving a young teen.

    Heather Pino, 32, of Pepin, Wisconsin, went before Judge Joseph Chase in Olmsted County District

    County.

    After reaching a plea deal with the state of Minnesota, she pleaded guilty to one count

    of felony first degree criminal sexual conduct.

    She was facing four counts of sexual misconduct for becoming romantically involved

    with a 14-year-old boy in her neighborhood.

    The crime took place when Pino was living in Rochester with her husband and two

    children this past January.

    She faced a maximum of 30 years prison and/or a $40,000 fine. But with the plea

    deal, if she is found amenable to treatment and probation after undergoing a physiological evaluation, she would not face

    any prison time.

    According to the prosecution, the victim and his family are supportive of the

    deal.

    Pino is set to be sentenced November 20,2009.

    To Catch

    A Female Predator: Wisconsin Woman, Heather Pino, Pleads Guilty To Having Sex With 14-Year-Old Neighborhood

    Boy.

    Female Sexual Predators

    I wanted to post a few excerpts from a recent article that ran in the Independent and comment on them. The article is titled “Women are ruthless sexual predators too”.

    MARTIN’S* mother began sexually abusing him by showing him “where babies come from”. When he was seven she tied him up to the electrics, tortured him and told him he was going to die.

    From the age of five to 13 he was the subject of horrific abuse and beatings. When he reached puberty, the abuse stopped. Shortly after, he became embroiled in crime and has spent most of his life in and out of prison. This is the story Irishman Martin, now 35, told the UK support group, Survivors Swindon, for the first time.

    As I have previously posted this sexual abuse of prepubescent children by a female offender seems to be much more common than many may think. Previously I posted some results from a study that was titled “The Long-Term Effects of Child Sexual Abuse by Female Perpetrators: A Qualitative Study of Male and Female Victims” and one of those results stated:

    The average age of onset of the female sexual abuse was age 5 and ended, on average, at age 12, with the average duration being 6 years.

    And Martin’s case seems to fit that as well.

    Steve Bevan, founder of Survivors Swindon, says: “Women commit sexual crime, from inappropriate touching to sadistic torture and rape. That is a fact.”

    Sadly it is a fact that is often denied or minimized by some, which causes even further harm.

    Dr Bunting, author of Females Who Sexually Offend Against Children says, “There is no safe gender, just offenders. Female sexual offenders are just as capable of perpetrating terrible, evil and sordid acts as men are.”

    This message needs to be spoken more often.

    Robert Shoop, a law professor at Kansas State University and author of Sexual Exploitation in Schools, says: “Society doesn’t view a boy having sex with an adult female as rape, although legally it is. Our society doesn’t see it as a child being harmed. The idea that society has historically said that women are to be protected from sex, but boys are supposed to enjoy it and look for the opportunity, I think is wrong-headed and is a vestige of our past inequalities.”

    He is correct and it is one reason, though not the only one, why people both male and female who have been abused by a female do not come forward.

    The problem, she said, is that female offenders do not see themselves as the “monsters in the media”. She is very concerned about the lack of measured awareness among the public and the implications this has for victims of female sexual abuse. One victim who was sexually abused by a female told Hilary: “No women sexually abuse. I think I must be crazy.”

    And this is another one of the reasons why victims of female abusers do not come forward. And to make it worse when they do come forward they are often disbelieved. Another female researcher/clinician has stated something similar to this (and is quoted on the front page of this site) when she stated “And female sex offenders use more intrusive levels of sexual behaviors than men. They are more likely than men to abuse strangers. And they are less likely than men to acknowledge guilt or to feel sorry or guilty, Strickland said.”

    Dr Lisa Bunting of the NSPCC says acceptance is the first step: “It may be uncomfortable to think that women with traditionally more nurturing and caring roles may commit child abuse, yet it is clear from my research that we all need to be alert and aware that child sex abuse is not just committed by men.”

    It is a long slow first step for many to take but hopefully more and more people will take it.

    Cultural historian Professor Joanna Bourke is writing a book which investigates why the female sexual perpetrator’s voice has been muffled “under the deafening patois about the male perpetrator”. The female rapist falls out of history, she says, despite the role she has played in inflicting sexual suffering, but her sexual abuses are often not labelled as such. The female abuser is seen as a man.

    Her book explores how women are being placed outside the symbolic order; the brutal female is as much a reality as the male and the scars they leave are forged deeper in the face of disbelief.Read the entire article here

    Mothers in Heat: Genise Schu

    Genise Schu


    Genise Schu, 47-year-old married mother has been arrested for sexual misconduct with a 13-year-old boy, her son’s friend.

    Schu faces counts of showing pornography to a minor, oral copulation of a minor under the age of 14, lewd act with a child under 14, sexual intercourse with a person under 18 years old, and oral copulation of a minor under the age of 18.
    The relationship began when the alleged victim was 13 years old and would spend the night at the home of one of his classmates, her son. At some point, allegedly, she showed him pornography while others were sleeping, and eventually orally copulated the boy and had sexual intercourse at least twice.

    Since then the two have allegedly had consensual sex hundreds of times during the relationship, according to a declaration from Santa Barbara police officer Corina Terrence.
    According to Officer Terrence, Schu confessed to the sexual relationship.

    Mothers commit vast majority of parental murders of children

    Although the data is U.S. sourced there are similarities in English speaking western democracies. Click on the link below for the source data. Federal Data: Mothers commit vast majority of parental murders of children These data are not blips. The trend is clear over many years that the mother (female) is responsible for the greatest amount of child abuse and child murder in family relationships. How then can it be there is no tax supported DV or emergency shelters for men in Canada; how can it be there are few, if any, (I haven’t found any yet) tax supported counseling services for men in marital breakdown in Canada; how can it be woman’s groups can tap into such large amounts of tax support to send out propaganda about how vulnerable they are; how can these DV groups spout the invective they do against men when their own clients are the worst perpetrators of abuse to children. How many women are actually in these shelters because of DV; how many are in them for addictions; how many are planning a false ex parte order to nail hubby while he sleeps; how many are in there because they are hiding from legal pursuits of them; how many are “passing through” while traveling. I think an accounting and operational audit of these facilities should be part and parcel of their ability to obtain tax funds. There is no doubt some women are there because they have no recourse and are subject to abuse but it casts a pall over them if many are there for other reasons. They are emergency shelters – so called – for Domestic Violence – at least in terms of the marketing of them to get tax funding. Is there something wrong with our values? Is there something wrong with government largess and what is wrong with us men for laying down and taking this misinformation from groups like the Tennessee DV coalition as described here amongst many others.

According to this graph, the youngest age group is the most victimized, with a rate of 22.2 boys and 21.5 girls per 1,000 children of the same age and sex group. The oldest children were victimized the least frequently.

Nearly 40 percent (38.7%) of victims were maltreated by their mother acting on her own. Note the rate by mom and other is 44.4% while dad and other is 18.8%. The rate by the mother is 2.36 times higher than dad. That is 236% greater.
