A SEX attacker has been jailed for assaulting three women in Nottingham city centre in the space of just 35 minutes.

Police said Aaron Gyening had set out to "prey" on women in the early hours.

Two of his victims were clubbers, while the other was a customer in a takeaway.

The 21-year-old has been jailed for four years and ordered to sign the Sex Offenders' Register for life.

Nottingham Crown Court heard his first victim on a Wednesday last November was a 22-year-old student walking home from Oceana nightclub.

Gyening forced his way through the door of her student accommodation and subjected her to a serious sexual assault in a communal hallway. He fled when he was disturbed, walked to King Edward Street and started talking to another student, 23, who had also been to Oceana. He became increasingly threatening and then sexually assaulted her.

Prosecutor Dawn Pritchard said taxi driver Asim Javaid stopped after he saw the woman fall to the floor.

She got into his Hackney taxi and they followed Gyening as he visited a takeaway, where he made sexual remarks to a woman at the counter and grabbed her bottom. She alerted staff and he stopped what he was doing.

The victim, in her 20s, went to a police station to report the incident and Gyening was arrested in Forest Road West, Radford, minutes later.

The three assaults all happened between 2.05am and 2.40am.

Gyening pleaded guilty to assault by penetration and two other sexual assaults.

Judge Andrew Hamilton commented: "What induced you to commit these serious offences one cannot imagine."

He awarded £250 from the High Sheriff's Fund to Mr Javaid for his actions to help the second victim.

The court was told in mitigation that student Gyening, of Russell Street, Radford, was previously of good character and was entitled to credit for pleading guilty.

The judge praised police and said CCTV footage clearly captured the defendant's movements as he followed his victims through the streets.

After the hearing, Detective Sergeant Jim Adam said: "Gyening's sole intention that evening was to prey on women in Nottingham.

"Now he is in prison he will be prevented from carrying out more attacks and will be on the Sex Offenders' Register for the rest of his life.

"His victims, who were extremely distressed, have shown tremendous courage through- out the investigation.

"Our thanks must also go to the taxi driver, whose swift and public-spirited actions helped us."

Mounties, jail guard charged for watching women have sex in Kamloops jail cell

Three Kamloops RCMP officers — including a corporal — and a city jail guard are facing criminal charges after two women detained in an RCMP cellblock were observed engaging in sexual activity without any of the officers intervening.

B.C.’s Criminal Justice branch on Friday announced one charge each of “breach of trust by a public official,” an offence under the Criminal Code, against Cpl. Ken Brown, and Consts. Evan Elgee and Stephen Zaharia and jail guard David Tompkins.

The charges stem from an incident on Aug. 18, 2010, when two women placed in a cell after being arrested in separate incidents engaged in what RCMP described at the time as “consensual sexual contact” while seven male employees of the RCMP and the jail watched via closed-circuit television for seven minutes.

The accused are scheduled to appear in court in Kamloops on July 18.

No other charges were approved against the fourth RCMP officers, second jail guard and a jail watch clerk, all unnamed and who were also investigated, said spokesman Neil MacKenzie.

At the time RCMP announced the investigation in the incident, it revealed a criminal investigation was also launched regarding the sexual contact between the two unidentified women, but no other details were revealed.

One of the women, who was so drunk she has no memory of the arrest or detention, had filed a lawsuit against the three levels of government and seven people in B.C. Supreme Court last fall, according to the Kamloops Daily News. The newspaper quoted her as saying she hadn’t consented to the sexual contact and had later learned the other woman was HIV-positive and that she was “horrified and scared.”

Both RCMP spokesman Sgt. Rob Vermeulen and MacKenzie said there are no other charges expected.

Vermeulen said he didn’t know if the RCMP had filed a statement of defence to the woman’s civil lawsuit. Her Victoria lawyer, Erik Magraken didn’t return calls before press time.

Brown, who had 20 years of service and was the supervisor that night, remains suspended with pay, and Elgee and Zaharia have returned to work on administrative duties. All three face an internal code-of-conduct investigation and Canada’s RCMP watchdog, the Commission for Public Complaints against the RCMP, is also investigating.

Tompkins also faced an investigation by his employer, the City of Kamloops.


Eto’o vindicated in Senegal prostitute scandal

The saga involving Indomitable Lions players and its captain, Samuel Eto’o Fils, about sleeping with prostitutes before their game in Senegal might just be false.

This is the information that made its round in local Cameroon press, justifying the Lions’ debacle against the Teranga Lions in Dakar.

According to the story, the captain and players of the Indomitable Lions had been provided with prostitute before their game in March. The prostitutes were reportedly arranged by Senegalese officials in order to destabilize the Cameroonian players ahead of the crucial game in Dakar.

An administrative Director of the team, Nguidjol Nlend, is quoted to have accused the Senegalese officials in an interview granted local Cameroonian tabloid, Le Messager.

But the Senegalese football federation officials have refuted the claims, insisting that the story is false and is aimed at denting the image of Senegalese federation and perturb the cordial relationship between that of Cameroon and Senegal. The Senegalese officials insisted that they did all to ensure the security of the Lions.

Louis Lamotte, vice president of the Senegalese football federation who was in charge of the organization, said everything went well for the encounter. According to him, Cameroonian football officials did not lodge any complaints after the match about any wrong doing. This rebuttal has come to somewhat redeem the image of the team, especially that of its captain, Eto’o.

Since the Cameroon-Senegal match on June 4 in Yaounde appears to be the most crucial game for the Lions in recent times, such allegations are important in dissuading fans from turning out on the pitch en masse. But Cameroon officials are reportedly doing everything to assure the security of the visiting team.

Recently, Cameroon’s ace footballer and current Roving Ambassador, Albert Roger Milla, assured that the Senegalese delegation coming for the match will be well received. He was apparently assuaging fears that the environment might not be conducive for the visiting Senegalese delegation. Milla emphasized that everything has been put in place to assure a good reception of the Senegalese delegation.


Two NYPD cops are being eyed in the Long Island serial slayings after investigators learned they got into trouble for hiring prostitutes while working for the department

Two NYPD cops are being eyed in the Long Island serial slayings after investigators learned they got into trouble for hiring prostitutes while working for the department, according to sources familiar with the probe.

One cop was forced out of the job in the 1990s when his supervisors learned he spent time pursuing hookers and paying street walkers and down-and-out women for sex while he was supposed to be on patrol.

An internal investigation led to his resigning under pressure, one source said.

The other officer still works for the NYPD but was stripped of his gun and badge years ago because he allegedly assaulted a prostitute and got arrested during a sting operation.

MYSTERY:One retired and one working NYPD cop -- both with past troubles involving prostitutes -- are being eyed in the ongoing investigation of the serial killings of call girls Maureen Brainard-Barnes (above), Megan Waterman, Amber Lynn Costello and Melissa Barthelemy.

The woman complained to police supervisors about the officer but no criminal charges were filed and an internal probe went nowhere, sources said.

The patrolman was allowed to return to the force, they said, though he was placed on modified duty -- transferred to a paper-pushing job in Manhattan where he's not allowed to make arrests or respond to emergencies.

"They couldn't prove anything, but they didn't trust him," said one source.

It's unclear if the disgraced cops know each other or what evidence investigators might have against them in the serial murders.

The Suffolk County Police Department would not comment for this story, and prosecutors did not return messages.

Sources said Suffolk County detectives began looking at the NYPD cops last month after determining the killer likely worked in law enforcement or was familiar with police techniques.

They've focused on how the murderer abducted his victims and if he used insider knowledge to avoid being detected.

Investigators suspect the killer hired the hookers through Craigslist, using a disposable and untraceable cellphone to make appointments.

He also used the cellphone of one victim to call and taunt the woman's teenage sister after he'd abducted her.

Cops traced two of those calls -- to Midtown and Massapequa, LI, which is not far from where the killer ditched the bodies of four hookers just off sand-swept Ocean Parkway near Gilgo Beach.

He'd strangled them, removed all their clothing and wrapped the corpses in burlap sacks before leaving the bodies in thick brush off the desolate causeway.

The four call girls found last year have been identified as Amber Lynn Costello, 27, of North Babylon, LI; Megan Waterman, 22, of Scarborough, Maine; Melissa Barthelemy, 24, who went missing from The Bronx; and Maureen Brainard-Barnes, 25, of Norwich, Conn.

The cops are not the sole focus of the investigation, which has expanded over the last several weeks, sources said.

Sugar Sugar is not an ordinary dating service. Instead of putting together people who are simply seeking traditional relationships, it links up sugar daddies - wealthy men who are willing to shower young women with money, gifts, and other compensation in exchange for companionship

Sugar Sugar is not an ordinary dating service. Instead of putting together people who are simply seeking traditional relationships, it links up sugar daddies - wealthy men who are willing to shower young women with money, gifts, and other compensation in exchange for companionship - and their so-called sugar babies.

Oh my! So this is no ordinary gentleman we're dealing with.

He is not simply seeking ladies of the evening with whom he will have deep, meaningful conversations about positions and day rates. No way! He's a sugar daddy looking for his "sugar baby". Those men are a different breed entirely.

But then there's the age old question: how to meet a sugar baby?

It may be a difficult subject to bring up at a bar, as both parties may initially feel uncomfortable tipping their sugarhands, so it's a good thing we live in an era where bringing up such complicated matters is as simple as a point and click:

The SugarSugar Dating App will be available for download on June 1st through SugarSugar.com and iTunes, and will be compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, iPad, Android, and BlackBerry devices. The app will use GPS technology to instantly identify those seeking ‘mutually beneficial' arrangements within the user's vicinity. After ‘checking in, the application will map out the profiles of nearby members. Users will be able to trade stats, show photos or send messages to arrange an effortless rendezvous.

I have to admit, I love the sound of the term "effortless rendezvous" and if I meet someone who I think would be the perfect sugardate, I intend to suggest that we arrange one.

Despite my liberal use of sugar as a prefix, this app doesn't bother me one way or the other. However, the article doesn't say much about taking any measures to ensure the safety of these girls.

Well, unless this counts:

Apple's App Store [is] a place known for its strict guidelines and approval process.

Phew. At least we know the app itself is safe!

In addition to the question of safety, some people are wondering how this app was able to bypass Apple's "strict guidelines" in the first place, as they directly prohibit the following:

16.1 Apps that present excessively objectionable or crude content will be rejected

18.1 Apps containing pornographic material, defined by Webster's Dictionary as "explicit descriptions or displays of sexual organs or activities intended to stimulate erotic rather than aesthetic or emotional feelings", will be rejected

18.2 Apps that contain user generated content that is frequently pornographic (ex "Chat Roulette" apps) will be rejected

22.1 Apps must comply with all legal requirements in any location where they are made available to users. It is the developer's obligation to understand and conform to all local laws

22.3 Apps that solicit, promote, or encourage criminal or clearly reckless behavior will be rejected

Nevertheless, sugarreaders, you can look forward to the app's debut on June 1st.

Or not. (No judgment!)

Thousands of women are to take to the streets of London in revealing outfits next month as the global SlutWalk phenomenon reaches Britain.

A Canadian policeman who told women to stop dressing like 'sluts' to avoid being raped sparked the worldwide protest movement that could see more than 5,000 women march through the capital.

Thousands of members of SlutWalk have already marched in cities across the U.S and Canada to display anger at Pc Michael Sanguinetti's comments, made in a health and safety talk to students at Osgoode Hall Law School in Toronto. 

Outrage: Global protest group SlutWalk was set up in response to comments from a Canadian police officer suggesting that women should 'avoid dressing like sluts' to protect themselves from rape

He reportedly told the group: 'You know, I think we're beating around the bush here. I've been told I'm not supposed to say this. However, women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to be victimised.'

Pc Sanguinetti later apologised and was disciplined, but remains in his role within the police force. 

Following his remarks, made in April, women across the globe joined the SlutWalk Facebook page in their droves, sparking protests in Toronto and Boston as well as other cities across the U.S.

A 3,000-strong crowd marched through Toronto, a further 2,000 took to the streets of Boston, some women marching in their underwear with 'slut' scrawled on their skin.

The London march, set to proceed from Hyde Park to Trafalgar Square, has been organised via SlutWalk's London Facebook page, where 5,200 group members are already discussing the event.

If such a number turn out on the day, London's march will be the biggest yet.

United front: Members of SlutWalk took to the streets of Boston at the weekend to protest against what they call the 'victimisation and blame' of women

The SlutWalk London website says its protests aim to end what is says is the 'victimisation and the culture of blame' towards rape victims.

Organisers of the group branded Pc Sanguinetti's comments 'ridiculous and inaccurate'.

'It was incredibly damaging to women around the world, painting them as perpetrators - rather than victims - of a disgusting, violent crime,' they said.

'All over the world, women are constantly made to feel like victims, told they should not look a certain way, should not go out at night, should not go into certain areas, should not get drunk, should not wear high heels or make up, should not be alone with someone they don't know.'

'Not only does this divert attention away from the real cause of the crime - the perpetrator - but it creates a culture where rape is OK, where it's allowed to happen... after all, she must have been asking for it, right?'

The protest movement has rapidly gained pace thanks to participation on Facebook and Twitter.

'We wanted to do something to show our support,' said Siobhan Connors, 20, of Lynn, Massachusetts, a Boston organiser. 'We originally planned for a small event and expected about 30 people.'

Anger: Protesters say they wish to reclaim the word 'slut', which they say has been too long used as a weapon against women. 'Once you reclaim it, you take the power away from it,' said one

A member of the Boston Facebook group, Vanessa White, 33, attended the Boston event dressed in a pink jacket and fishnet stockings.

'For me it's an attempt to reclaim the word 'slut' itself,' she said. 'Because once you reclaim it, you take the power away from it.'

But some critics, while applauding the overall message, have slammed the group for what they call its 'provocative' and 'unhelpful' name.

Blame: SlutWalkers want to end rape blame culture. 'Women are told they should not look a certain way, wear high heels or make up. It diverts attention away from the real cause of the crime - the perpetrator'

They have suggested that far from empowering women, attempting to reclaim the word has the opposite effect, simply serving as evidence that women are accepting this label given to them by misogynistic men.

Debate on Twitter says the group's name is off-putting to those who believe in the cause, but don't believe in marching under the 'slut' banner.

'This word marginalises women wanting to protest but not embrace the word "slut",' says one, while  another adds 'there is no redemption for the male-defined word "slut". This is not liberation.'

Another user agrees. 'Women should not protest for the right to be called "slut",' they said.

Injustice: SlutWalk protesters say rape victims are still made to feel like perpetrators

maid who works in the Sofitel hotel in Times Square has accused the IMF leader of sodomy.

International Monetary Fund (IMF) Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn was arrested in New York earlier this evening. The IMF leader was taken into custody by Port Authority police at JFK Airport while on board a Paris-bound Air France plane that was awaiting takeoff. He was later turned over to Manhattan police for questioning but has yet to be charged.

Strauss-Kahn is well-known in French political circles and is a candidate for president of France. It would seem that US politicians are not alone in sex scandals. A maid who works in the Sofitel hotel in Times Square has accused the IMF leader of sodomy.

IMF Managing Director Dominique Strauss-Kahn attends World Economic Forum Meeting in Davos, Switzerland (January 30, 2010)

Special Victims Unit Investigating

The case against Strauss-Kahn is under investigation by the Special Victims Unit, from the Midtown South precinct. According to the alleged victim, Strauss-Kahn, 62, crept up behind her and forced her to perform oral sex, after he emerged from the bathroom naked. The woman was able to escape and flee the hotel room; Strauss-Kahn apparently made haste to the airport. The IMF leader left his cell phone and other personal effects behind in the hotel room.

Strauss-Kahn is the leader of France's Socialist Party. He previously scheduled a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin on Sunday.

Economic and Moral Crisis?

With many countries facing severe fiscal crises, it is fascinating to see where some economic officials' priorities seem to lie. Clearly, scandal is something that does occur frequently at many levels and positions--whether in government, entertainment, private business or on the latest reality show. What's interesting to note is that while many in government seem to preach a Socialist agenda, which claims to offer the greatest good for the greatest number of people, there still seems to be a contradiction. Many of these same people are clearly driven by self-centered motives.

If the IMF leader ultimately faces charges in this sex attack, the result will be further erosion in what little confidence remains in world economic "leaders."
