Caught RED HANDED, Texas Sex Predator gets "Deferred Probation"

And very little publicity even though there are graphic pictures documenting her escapades. While the initial article suggested salacious acts reminiscent of oval office escapades with a cigar, the aftermath was quite different.
From Nacogdoches, the Oldest Town in Texas:
The Daily Sentinel - "Twenty-six-year-old Janet Parker surrendered to sheriff's officials at 11 a.m. Wednesday. According to a press release from Shelby County District Attorney Lynda K. Russell, her office and the sheriff's office were first alerted to an inappropriate teacher/student relationship in December. 'The matter was investigated, and although authorities felt inappropriate behavior existed, no proof could be established,' the release said.

'Two weeks ago, suspicions of this relationship again surfaced when a student's cell phone was taken up during school. Because the screen saver picture on the phone depicted behavior unacceptable at school (a student with a tobacco product), authorities at school searched the phone further. The phone was turned over to the district attorney's office. A search warrant was executed on the phone, allowing a forensic expert to search the phone. An inappropriate picture of Janet Parker was found on the cell phone. This phone belonged to the same student with whom Parker was suspected of having an inappropriate relationship last December,' the release said.

Because of the nature of this picture D.A. Russell and Sheriff Johnson requested a warrant for the search of Parker's home. Assisting in executing the search warrant were Shelby County Sheriff's Deputy Desmond McDaniel, Texas Ranger Tom Davis, and D.A. Investigator Danny Green. Evidence gathered at the scene confirmed that the picture of Parker on the child's cell phone was taken in her home. In cases like this, computers are commonly used to store images of inappropriate behavior and communications between parties which sometimes reveal the type of relationship between the parties. As a result, two computers were gathered as possible evidence. A forensic search was conducted of the computers, and as a result of the searches on the computers and the investigation into this matter, 23 warrants have been issued for the arrest of Janet Parker - (9 warrants for sexual performance by a child , three warrants for sexual assault of a child and 11 warrants for possession of child pornography third-degree felony)."
Repeated searches of the web yeilded no information on the trial result. Probably because there was no trial. When contacted, District Attorney Linda Kay Russell's office stated that Ms. Parker received "10 years of deferred probation." I'm not sure what that means, but if it's anything like deferred sentencing, Ms. Parker pled guilty and then got a "deferred" arrangement meaning she's not even being supervised. "Just stay out of trouble" would be the operative phrase, and in ten years she can apply to have her record cleaned.

It would seem that Ms. Parker is being treated as a "first time offender" and not having the book thrown at her. In the meantime, defendants like Merril Leroy Jessop, Michael Emack, Allan Keate and Raymond Jessop are having the book thrown at them as if they were "repeat offenders." It would also appear that just like the ranch was "one residence," FLDS offenders are being treated as one defendant. The sentences are getting worse.

Oh, come on now. You're picking women? If you didn't realize there is a huge double standard between men and women by now you might as well hang it up.

Let a man chase his wife with a 9 iron? He'd be sent up the river fast. Let Tiger Woods wife do it and it all gets not only swept under the rug, but suddenly she get sympathy because Tiger is soooo mean.

I accept your admission of hypocrisy on the part of Texas. I call such hypocrisy in the justice system, injustice.

I don't know what a Buddhist calls it, but for this hopelessly blinkered neanderthal, it's injustice and diverse weights.

Ron in Houston said...

I think the injustice you cite is certainly not limited to the State of Texas.

A Buddhist wouldn't call it anything. It is what it is.

The Pharisee said...

No, but Texas is accountable for Texas. A Calvinist would call it the "will of God," but you're still accountable.

Ron is accurate in stating that there is a humongous bias in our legal system towards women having sex with minors vs. men having sex with minors.

That said, it stinks to high heaven that the FLDS mean are getting sentences that exceed those given to perps guilty of 2nd degree murder while these bimbos are essentially given a slap on the wrist.

The Pharisee said...

What you ought to know, is that I could do this for the rest of the month, one a day, adult women in Texas, in the land of the all day "hard on" that is the 12-14 year old male.

It's like they want their warm interactive cuddly dildo.

Sorry to be graphic, but that's the way it seems on the surface. Some of these stories involve the woman fellating the young men as the major part of their sexual interaction with them so it's a sort of weird pathology we're discussing. It smells like a control issue to me.

That's pathological. They won't quit, and they are being let out into the world, where they WILL do it again. Sexual crimes performed as a part of a pathology have a high recidivism rate.

These women are unlike FLDS men who marry young girls because the FLDS think it's good for young girls to set their sites on motherhood. They're literally preying on the young boys because they are their preferred target.

I don't think you can look and Michael Emack's wives or Raymond Jessop's, and say that.

Were any of these women married at the time they committed these acts?
If so, they would be eligible for the enhancement that ups the charges to 1st degree sexual assault. So I wonder, Over the past 5 years, how many of those accused of sexual assault against 14-16 years old had their charges enhanced to a first degree felony on account that they were already married and thus prohibited from marrying their victims. I am most curious if this enhancement is only used against FLDS.

The Pharisee said...

Definitely some of them were Duane, and Alison Mosbeck, whose trial is now scheduled to occur next month was at the time of the alleged offense.

duaneh1 said...

Ok, so is this Alison facing 1st degree sex assault charges on account that she is/was currently married and thus prohibited from legally marrying the alleged victim?

The Pharisee said...

Alison was legally married at the time of the offense. In fact, the number of articles on my desk that involve women married at the time of their crime is fairly large. Married. In Texas. The crime comes after the change in law.

Most are teachers, putting them in a position to abuse trust and take advantage of power to obtain sexual partners.
