University of Michigan Researcher Charged in Child Porn Case

ANN ARBOR, MI — A University of Michigan researcher is facing child pornography charges after authorities say he shared a video of a young girl engaged in a sex act with a dog and other disturbing images.

Michael Zeidler, 48, has worked at the University of Michigan since 1999, and is alleged to have shared images of young children being sexually abused as well as recording foreign exchange students in his home, and using those videos to pleasure himself.

Zeidler worked on animals at a research lab at the university, and according to the FBI, he was using a work computer to view and share child porn.

Simultaneous FBI raids were conducted at Zeidler’s University of Michigan research office, and his Ann Arbor home, all related to child pornography.

According to these federal charging documents, the investigation began in November when an undercover detective was able to downloaded more than 400 images of child erotica, 187 images of child pornography and 51 child pornography videos from someone who was sharing them on a peer-to-peer network using two different IP addresses.

“Based on information provided by the FBI about the dates and times of the logins, as well as the source, port, and destination information, the University of Michigan was able to identify the internet user for both of the IP addresses at issue as Michael Zeidler,” according to FBI agent Susan Lucas.

Court documents show Zeidler allegedly confessed to downloading child porn as far back as 2012. And at his Ann Arbor home, he allegedly filmed foreign exchange students in the bathroom without their knowledge, and would later use the videos to pleasure himself. In a statement provided to Action News by Michigan Medicine, a spokesperson says Zeidler’s “job did not involve patient care.”

The statement went on to read: “We have cooperated fully with law enforcement on this investigation and will continue to do so. Zeidler was hired in August 1999 and is currently on suspension.”

Zeidler also admitted to also recording his kids’ play dates, according to documents. However, he said he deleted those videos. He is currently in jail with a hearing scheduled for Wednesday in federal court.

Texas Woman Wins Lottery, Bails Out Son Accused Of Sexual Assault

A man with a history of child sex crimes was recently bonded out of jail by his mother who had just won the $15.24 million Lotto Texas jackpot, according to the Dallas Morning News.

JoAnn Ames, 70, confirmed she posted 10% of her son’s $100,000 bond. Ames claims she and her husband Floyd Ames, 76, spent their life savings bailing him out of jail, but expect to collect their lottery winnings by the end of November.

The man, Jason Wayne Carlile, 47, previously has been convicted of exposing himself to a 2-year-old boy and spent three years in prison. Carlile was also convicted of paying a woman $3,000 in exchange for her 15-year-old daughter in 2006, according to the Wichita Times. In that case, Tina Valdez told police her daughter ran away, although she later admitted she sold her daughter to Carlile because she needed money. Valdez and Carlile were both sentenced to three years in prison. A child pornography charge was dropped during Carlile’s s plea deal. He was required to register as a sex offender annually until 2020.

U.S. marshals arrested him again in December 2017, accusing him of raping a child under 14..

Assistant Public Defender Rebecca Ruddy filed a motion to reconsider Carlile’s access to a public defender, saying he has access to money to hire a private defender because his mother won the lottery, bailed him out of jail and had discussed hiring a private lawyer with her son.

The winning ticket was bought at a Wichita Falls gas station Oct. 31, and the winners have 180 days to collect the cash value option, which they selected.

Carlile remains free on bond, on the conditions that he live with his mother, wear a GPS monitor and obey a 7 p.m.-10 a.m. curfew. His trial is set to begin in December.


Florida Man Arrested For Making Bombs in His Basement

A Florida man has been arrested on suspicion of manufacturing an explosive chemical powerful enough to blow up a neighborhood block, Volusia County Sheriff’s Office and local reports said.

Jared Coburn, 37, was arrested in Lake Helen, Florida, on Tuesday after police received a tip about explosive materials at his home.

Police discovered jars of the highly explosive substance triacetone triperoxide, which is a white crystal powder called the “Mother of Satan” by terrorist groups like Al Qaeda. The substance was used in the 2017 Manchester bombing, the 2015 Paris attacks and by “Shoe Bomber” Richard Reid in 2001, according to Sheriff Mike Chitwood.

Coburn told police that he began making explosives when he discovered a passion for model rockets and began to experiment with other types of explosives when those model rockets weren’t exciting enough, according to a police report. Coburn said he used YouTube videos to “progress his knowledge,” the report says. Coburn also told police he wasn’t actually making bombs, he was just trying to create his own version of fireworks.

Chitwood said the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were at the house to help them move the substance, adding that police would use a robot to move and detonate the chemicals.

Later in the night, police tweeted: “If you heard a boom in Lake Helen, that was us detonating one of the items. All good. There will be more booms, so don’t be alarmed!”

Coburn has been charged with making or possessing explosives and two counts of making or possessing a destructive device, according to police records.

Man Arrested Again For Possessing Child Porn While Awaiting Trial

IDAHO FALLS — A man has been arrested for a second time this year after investigators found him in possession of more child pornography.

Samuel S. Gale, 32, was first taken into custody in July on five counts of possessing sexually exploitative images of minors. After being released to pretrial services in September, Gale was allegedly found with more child pornography and was arrested again. He was charged with 10 more counts of possessing sexually exploitative images of minors in October.

While gale was waiting to be tried in the first case, investigators received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children concerning Gale. Dropbox alerted NCMEC that an account linked to Gale had allegedly uploaded child pornography. According to court documents, investigators found 293 videos and 868 pornographic images of children uploaded to Gale’s Dropbox account.

According to court documents, investigators reviewed phone calls between Gale and his wife while he was in jail in July. In one phone call, Gale allegedly admitted to sexually touching one of her children before they got married. He also allegedly told her he had touched other children when he was 15 years old.

In another call, Gale allegedly told his wife he had been looking at child porn.

“Samual goes on to say that he has been doing better about not viewing it and would go a few months and would not view it and would ‘mess up’ and then go a couple of weeks without viewing it,” investigators noted in court documents.

According to documents, Gale returned to live with his wife and the multiple children in their home after he was released from jail in September. His wife allegedly lied to Child Protective services telling them she didn’t have any reason to believe Gale was a danger to her children.

After living in the home with his wife and the children for a few weeks, Gale was arrested and charged.

Gale was released to pretrial services on Oct. 12 with an order banning him from having contact with minors or accessing the internet.

Gale was arraigned in Bonneville County Monday. A new court date has yet to be set. He is scheduled for a jury trial on Dec. 4, for the first set of charges from July.

Boy Accused In School Stabbing Repeatedly Asked Out Victim, Police Say

Luther, OK (The Oklahoman) — A teenage girl who was stabbed at Luther High School last week told investigators the boy accused of stabbing her had repeatedly tried to start a romantic relationship with her.

About 8:15 a.m. on Aug. 16, students were gathered for an assembly in the school’s auditorium when a 14-year-old boy stood up and repeatedly stabbed a 14-year-old girl. The boy and the victim were friends, but Luther police Chief David Randall said the boy wanted a relationship.

“There was one point where he approached her in reference… to try to have some type of relationship, to which she said she wasn’t interested in it,” Randall said the victim told him during an interview earlier this week.

Parents Outraged After Their Son Is Punished for Referring to His Teacher as ‘Ma’am’

Teretha Wilson and McArthur Bryant raise their 10-year-old son Tamarion to call their elders “ma’am” and “sir,” but that politeness got the fifth grader in trouble from a teacher at his preparatory school.

The North Carolina parents told ABC-13 that they had Tamarion moved to a different classroom at North East Carolina Preparatory School in Tarboro after his teacher punished him for calling her “ma’am.”

Tamarion had returned from school on Tuesday with a punishment he had to have signed by his parents. He went on to explain that he had continued to repeatedly call his teacher “ma’am” despite her requests not to, and was told to write the word “ma’am” written on a piece of paper four times per line on both sides as a penalty.

“He had a look on his face of disappointment, shame,” Bryant told ABC-13. “At the end of the day as a father, to feel kind of responsible for that…knowing that I have been raising him and doing the best that I can, it’s not acceptable.”

Wilson went on to explain that Tamarion had recently been in the hospital for seizure-related activity, and had been suffering from memory loss and hallucinations.

Adding to their anger was how the teacher allegedly told Tamarion during the encounter that “if she had something, she would have thrown it at him” — which the parents said the teacher admitted when they met with her and the principal the next day.

“It wasn’t right,” Wilson told to ABC-13. “It wasn’t professional. As a teacher, it wasn’t appropriate.”

Reps for North East Carolina Preparatory School did not immediately respond to PEOPLE’s request for comment, but told ABC-13 in a statement, “This is a personnel matter which has been handled appropriately by the K-7 principal.”

Though Tamarion will moving to a different classroom, Bryant is warning other parents of this sort of behavior. “If it happened to my son, I’m pretty sure if not a week, a day, a month, a year, it will occur to somebody else’s child,” he said.

And as for Tamarion’s punishment, it was returned to the teacher, signed as promised — but with a second sheet of paper attached, the family said: Tamarion, writing the definition of the word “ma’am.”

Border inspector, former ICE agent face felony cases in California

A former Homeland Security Investigations special agent raped a woman twice, sexually assaulted another and told the victims police would never believe them if they reported him because of his law enforcement position, federal prosecutors alleged.

John Jacobs Olivas, 43, of Riverside, California, was arrested Wednesday and pleaded not guilty in 

a U.S. District Court hearing the same afternoon. The crimes took place in 2012, according to the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles.


A federal grand jury indictment alleges that Olivas, who resigned in 2015, raped a victim twice, in September 2012 and November 2012, and tried to rape another in January 2012. The document alleges he told the second victim that “police would not be responsive” if she tried to report him.

Facebook Fueled Anti-Refugee Attacks in Germany, New Research Suggests

ALTENA, Germany — When you ask locals why Dirk Denkhaus, a young firefighter trainee who had been considered neither dangerous nor political, broke into the attic of a refugee group house and tried to set it on fire, they will list the familiar issues.

This small riverside town is shrinking and its economy declining, they say, leaving young people bored and disillusioned. Though most here supported the mayor’s decision to accept an extra allotment of refugees, some found the influx disorienting. Fringe politics are on the rise.

Florida candidate apologizes amid fake-diploma controversy, says she will stay in race

Brendan FarringtonAssociated Press

A Republican candidate for the Florida Legislature apologized Monday for saying she had a college degree that she didn’t complete, but said she will stay in the race “and lead by example from now on.”

Melissa Howard last week posted a photo of herself with what looked like a Miami University diploma after being accused of lying about her degree. The Ohio university later sent reporters a statement saying she attended the school, but never graduated and the diploma Howard posted has inaccuracies.

Howard posted an apology on her campaign Facebook page and admitted she didn’t graduate from the school.

“I made a mistake in saying that I completed my degree. What I did was wrong and set a bad example for someone seeking public service. I am staying in the race and intend to win and lead by example from now on,” she said.

Even if she dropped out, it’s too late to get her name off the ballot ahead of the Aug. 28 primary. Vote by mail ballots were sent out a month ago. The seat represents portions of Manatee and Sarasota counties, where about 20,000 Republican votes have already been cast.

While some have taken to social media to say Howard should drop out, local party officials say the matter should be left to voters.

“We should just let nature take its course. Let the voters decided if they want her to win the primary,” said Manatee County Republican committeewoman Peggy Simone.

In her statement, Howard said, “It was not my intent to deceive or mislead anyone.” It didn’t say what her intent was.

Her primary opponent, Tommy Gregory, didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.

A woman told police she’s a ‘thoroughbred, white girl’ as she tried to avoid jail for DUI

South Carolina police say a woman who sped through a stop sign and was slurring her words allegedly used her race, intelligence and cleanliness as reasons she didn’t belong in jail.

Lauren Elizabeth Cutshaw, 32, was charged with a number offenses, including drunken driving, speeding and marijuana possession, after an early Saturday traffic stop in Bluffton, South Carolina.

Police say a Breathalyzer test showed Cutshaw’s blood-alcohol level at 0.18 percent. A person is considered impaired if their BAC is .08 percent or higher, according to South Carolina law.

During the course of the arrest, Cutshaw gave a number of reasons why she shouldn’t be jailed, some of which were used as evidence of her intoxication, according to police records obtained by the Associated Press and the Island Packet.


Among the statements Cutshaw made to police:

  • She is a “very clean, thoroughbred, white girl.”
  • She was a cheerleader and in a sorority.
  • Her partner is a police officer.
  • She had good grades, was in the National Honor Society and graduated from a “high accredited university.”

At the police station, Cutshaw allegedly used her race and cleanliness as a reason she didn’t belong in jail. An officer, who was also white, questioned why that would matter.

Cutshaw reportedly replied, “You’re a cop, you should know what that means.” She also said the officer should know her meaning “based on the people that come in this room.”

A dashcam video of the arrest shows Cutshaw begging not to be jailed and calling herself a “pretty girl,” according to the New York Post. In the video she also expressed worry that the arrest would “ruin her career.”

Cutshaw told police she drank two glasses of wine. When asked how full the glasses of wine were, she reportedly replied, “I mean I was celebrating my birthday.”

During the arrest, police say they also found marijuana and rolling papers in her car, and Cutshaw admitted she “may have” smoked earlier.
