CALIFORNIA Online Child Predators 2012: CSU Assistant Sentenced to 450 Months in Prison for Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a 5-month-old infant

After Kenneth Martin Kyle, a former CSU assistant professor, plead guilty in 2009, he was sentenced March 8th, 2012, to 37-and-a-half years in prison. He also has been ordered to pay 50.000 USD in restitution for traveling across state lines to sexually abuse a infant, U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of California Melinda Haag announced.

In pleading guilty, Kyle admitted, that in August 2009, he traveled from San Francisco to St. Louis for the purpose of engaging in sexual acts with an infant victim. Immediately following his guilty plea, which was pursuant to a plea agreement, Kyle was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Jeffrey S. White.

“It is my hope that the sentence Mr. Kyle received, sends a strong message about the abhorrent conduct in this case” (as well as in nationwide similar cases), U.S. Attorney Haag said.

Protecting (our) children from sexual predators like Kyle, is an absolute important priority (TASK) to do so. My office will continue to work diligently with partners in law enforcement to track down and prosecute sexual predators to the fullest extent of the law.” Haag also stated.

Pedophile Kyle sentenced to 450 Months
At the time of his arrest (in March 2010), Kyle was an Assistant Professor of Justice Studies (My goodness (Headshake)) at the California State University in East Bay.

He came to the attention of the FBI when undercover agents discovered that he was sharing child pornography over a peer-to-peer file-sharing network.

The FBI passed this information along to San Francisco police officers who obtained a search warrant for Kyle’s San Francisco apartment.

During the search of Kyle’s apartment, they found computers and other devices containing child pornography and similar material. Because Kyle was out of the country at the time (..and therefor the search warrant was officialy "handed out"), San Francisco police officers shared their information with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE)-Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), as well to other LEA (FBI etc.).

“Nothing is more gratifying than seeing someone like this, going to prison for a very, very, very long time, where he will no longer have the opportunity to harm children or other potential victims, in such a horrible fashion. said Clark Settles, “HSI will use every tool at its disposal to track down those who would and will harm our children, and see that they are brought to justice, at best as it can reach.”

During his plea hearing, Kyle admitted to molesting a 5-month-old infant in St. Louis over several months. The infant victim’s mother, Tessa Vanvlerah, currently faced at the time federal child pornography charges in California and Missouri and has pleaded guilty to state child molestation charges in Missouri. She was sentenced to consecutive life sentences for incest, statutory sodomy and statutory rape of her infant daughter.

The woman who fostered and then adopted the girl said initially, the girl would scream when anyone bathed her or changed her diaper. She still has night terrors and asks at each bedtime to make sure nobody else comes into the home. However, she said the girl is improving day by day and "is no longer Tessa's plaything and she is no longer Tessa's child."

Vanvlerah was arrested in 2010 following the arrest of 49-year-old Kenneth Kyle, a California State University East Bay professor, on child pornography charges. Along with hundreds of child porn images on Kyle's computers, investigators found information that led them to the St. Louis area, where Kyle had visited Vanvlerah four times in five months, since meeting online. During those visits, prosecutors say the pair had sex with the girl and each other at various hotels. (SEX with THE Girl?? An Infant ??? How Sick THE FORMULATION !!)

Forensic psychologist Dr. Brooke Kraushaar testified at Vanvlerah's sentencing hearing that Vanvlerah's dependent-personality disorder caused her to participate in Kyle's sexual fantasies, even though she knew sex acts involving the baby were wrong.

Kraushaar, who was hired by defense lawyers Brent Labovitz and Kevin Whiteley, described Vanvlerah as "a passive offender." Brooke said Vanvlerah was so afraid of being rejected by others that she also allowed Kyle to choke, burn and urinate on her.

But assistant prosecutor Kathi Alizadeh disputed the diagnosis, pointing out that Vanvlerah exercised free will in electronic communications with another man. Vanvlerah carved her nickname for the man, "Lord Nikon" into her skin at his request, the prosecutor said, but drew the line at one of his suggestions involving bestiality.

Alizadeh said police learned that Vanvlerah and another man, from Avon, Missouri, exchanged child porn and discussed plans for him to come to St. Louis to have sex with the infant, but it was never acted upon.

In 2008, when Vanvlerah was 18, a woman obtained a court order of protection against her, accusing her of seducing and having sex with the woman's 16-year-old autistic son. Alizadeh said it resulted in Vanvlerah's pregnancy.

Owen Martikan is the Assistant U.S. Attorney who is prosecuting the case with the assistance of Rosario Calderon.

The prosecution is the result of an investigation by ICE-HSI.

This investigation also involved the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Missouri.

Lets hope that these harmful creatures will be rotten out at some point in time, and wont be a burden for the average taxpayer...
