"Danish golfer Thorbjorn Olesen has been charged with sexual assault, common assault and being drunk on an aircraft. He is scheduled to appear in an English court on Aug. 21."
"Olesen allegedly assaulted a sleeping woman and urinated in the aisle of a plane while drunk on the flight. The Sun reported that golfer Ian Poulter had to calm Olesen, 29, after Olesen was allegedly abusive toward passengers and crew in first class. Olesen allegedly assaulted the woman while Poulter slept."
"Olesen's attorney said his client "has cooperated fully with the police during their investigation, but while the legal proceedings are still ongoing he unfortunately cannot comment on this matter at this time."
"Brown was convicted in 2006 of murdering 43-year-old Nashville real estate agent Johnny Allen. Police said she shot Allen in the back of the head at close range with a gun she brought to rob him after he picked her up at a drive-in restaurant in Nashville to have sex with her.
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled against life-without-parole sentences for juveniles. But the state of Tennessee argued successfully in lower courts that Brown's sentence was not in violation of federal law because she would be eligible for parole after serving at least 51 years."
"The Pentagon is targeting serial sex offenders with a new program that tracks confidential information provided by victims.
The Pentagon, which has long struggled with sexual assault in its ranks, is hoping that victims who have been reluctant to file formal complaints will do so if they know their assailant has assaulted another victim. "
"The Catch Program debuted Monday across the military and seeks to aid troops who file sexual assault complaints known as restricted reports. Such reports do not trigger an official investigation but allow the victim to receive health care, legal advice and advocacy. The program began receiving some reports June 19, according to Jessica Maxwell, a Pentagon spokeswoman. Several victims have sought to enter information into the system about their assailant."
"If a match is made, law enforcement will contact sexual assault response personnel who in turn will notify the victim and give him or her chance to file a formal charge, known as an unrestricted report."
"A newspaper delivery woman's decision to pick up another woman on the side of the road led Ankeny police to a sex trafficking ring.
Lavon Franz, of Des Moines, was on her usual Des Moines Register paper route at about 2:45 a.m. Sunday when she saw a woman waving her arms on the side of the road. The woman was one of four involved in a sex trafficking ring an Illinois woman was charged in connection to Sunday.
Brittany Walters, 25, of East Dubuque, Illinois, was arrested and charged with two counts of pimping and two counts of human trafficking, all class D felonies, according to court records.
According to a criminal complaint, Walters scheduled times for men to pay women for sex on Saturday and Sunday at locations including the Quality Inn and Suites hotel on SE Delaware Avenue in Ankeny.
"I was shocked that it was in my own backyard," Franz said. "I had no idea that (sex trafficking) was this close.""
"Ankeny Police Capt. Makai Echer said in circumstances where people see something they believe is out of place, they shouldn't hesitate to contact police.
"It's not a waste of police's time," she said. "If you see something, you should say something."
A person should be aware of the risk of picking up someone off the street, Echer said, but if they do, the best place to take them during the late night and early morning hours is a place that operates 24 hours where there are other people. Those locations could include convenience stores or the police department."
