A state worker ended up in jail after reporting to the FBI that he was soliciting sex from a purported teen who never showed up at his house.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that Nicholas Deelstra, 54, called the FBI in late August about an alleged Craigslist scam. 

An employee with the Office of Rehabilitation in the state Department of Workforce Services, Deelstra said someone claiming to be the teen’s father messaged him, “demanding he send money to cover car repairs because” the family’s vehicle was damaged while the boy was trying to meet with the man.

Logan City Police took up the case and arrested Deelstra last week for alleged sex crimes.

The Tribune wrote:

Deelstra told a Logan officer that he agreed to meet with the teen for sex, despite knowing he was underage, court records state. Police also found sexually explicit messages between Deelstra and the purported teen on the man’s phone.

Deelstra was charged Monday in 1st District Court with third-degree felony counts of sexual exploitation of a minor and dealing inmaterials harmful to a minor, as well as two counts of class Amisdemeanor soliciting a minor by internet or text.

An alarming letter from the Department of Justice accuses Missoula County, Montana prosecutors of all but ignoring sexual assault cases.

Buzzfeed reports that the Missoula County Attorney’s Office only took action on 17 of 85 police reports of sexual assaults of adult women between January 2008 and May 2012.

“[Female] sexual assault victims in Missoula are deprived of fundamental legal protections and often re-victimized by MCAO’s response to their reports of abuse,” U.S. attorneys wrote in a findings letter to County Attorney Fred Van Valkenburg.

Prosecutors are accused of “institutionalized indifference” that “perpetuates a culture that tolerates sexual assault, dissuades victims from reporting crimes, leaves violent criminal activity unaddressed, and compromises the safety of all women in Missoula.”

In some cases, prosecutors even failed to return phone calls from victims.

Acevedo “truly, truly feels horrible about what he did, but he doesn’t understand why it happened,” his attorney, Bret Jordan, said. “He doesn’t know if what he did could be prevented, but he wants to know.”

The FBI declined to comment on the arrangement.

An FBI agent who operated a sex crimes task force in Georgia is accused of using his position to get out of at least three drunken driving investigations, CBS in Atlanta reports.

Ken Hillman, who ran the northwest Georgia Crimes Against Children Task Force, abused his authority while being pulled over on suspicions of DUI, according to defense attorney McCracken Poston, who represents some of the child abuse suspects.

Poston showed a dash cam video as evidence.

“Because of his badge and his connections he got out of at least three instances when he should have been investigated for driving under the influence. Maybe more,” Poston told CBS in Atlanta.

The rate of women and girls 12 or older who are being sexually assaulted has decreased 64% over the past decade, the Justice Department reported Thursday, CBS News reports.

In 2010, for example, 270,000 rapes or sexual assaults were investigated, compared to 560,000 in 1995 CBS News wrote.

The biggest drops occurred between 1995 and 2005. Since then, the figures have remained relatively stable.

“We have a ways to go,” Eleanor Smeal, president of the Feminist Majority, told ABC News. “It is clear there is still too much violence and too many are fearful to report it.”

A Salt Lake City FBI agent is changing how authorities investigate child sex crimes, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

Special Agent Eric Zimmerman created software that the FBI approved last fall, leading to the arrests of more than 220 suspects, according to the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

The 13 software tools reduce the time to investigate data on a computer hard drive and interpret real-time information on suspected abusers, the Tribune reported.

“I can honestly say it is one of the best tools that I have ever used since doing this line of work,” Toronto Police Service Detective Paul Krawczyk, who has worked in the child exploitation section of his agency for 10 years, told the Tribune.

The FBI offers the technology to local police.
