Oklahoma teen gets probation for raping three boys at group home and trying to assault another

Published

on

An Oklahoma teen accused of raping three other boys and attempting to assault a fourth will avoid prison as part of a plea agreement.

Cato James Mashburn pleaded no contest Monday to four counts of first-degree rape and attempted first-degree rape and given lengthy but suspended sentences and place on probation, reported The Ada News.

The 17-year-old, who case was bound over to adult court last year, was sentenced to 25 years on three of the rape charges and 20 years on the fourth, in addition to 22.5 years for attempted rape — but all of those sentences were suspended.

Mashburn must complete a youthful offender program with sex offender treatment while he remains in custody of juvenile affairs, and then he will be released on two years of supervised probation.

He will then be placed on unsupervised probation for the remainder of the 25-year sentence.

Mashburn, then 16, was arrested last year after a 14-year-old boy accused him in June 2015 of attempting to sexually assault him at the Cypress Group Home.

The victim said Mashburn inappropriately touched him, and the boy ran away fearful that the older teen would punch or knock him out.

Investigators found three other teens who accused Mashburn of raping them at the group home between fall 2014 and June 2015.

Police responded to dozens of calls at the Cypress Group Home, which closed this summer, since it opened in June 2014.

A 14-year-old girl who lived at the facility was charged in December 2014 with raping another female resident and sentenced in June to a 15-year suspended prison term.

Adriana Wilson, now 17, is currently being held at a juvenile facility, but she will be released, like Mashburn, when she is 18 years old and placed on probation.

BUSTED: Trump’s White House sent out anti-Vindman talking points — trashing their own staffer

Published

on

President Donald Trump's war on his own employees escalated on Tuesday when the White House spread talking points designed to result in a coordinated attack on a decorated active-duty Army officer.

"The Trump White House has taken the extraordinary step of distributing talking points to allies of the president trashing one of its employees," The Daily Beast reported after obtaining a copy of the document.

"On Tuesday morning, White House aide Julia Hahn emailed Trump surrogates under the subject line, “Vindman’s Complaints Are Nothing More Than Policy Disagreements,” according to messages reviewed by The Daily Beast. Hahn, a Steve Bannon protege and one of his former allies in the White House, works on outreach and communications involving pro-Trump talking heads and other players in conservative media," The Beast reported.

Don Lemon notes the GOP panic after their own witnesses gave testimony harming Trump: ‘Worried much?’

Published

CNN anchor Don Lemon explained how witnesses called by Republicans in the impeachment inquiry destoryed the defenses employed by President Donald Trump and his allies.

"Now, let's just be honest, the shakedown -- that's exactly what it is -- the shakedown is exposed, people," Lemon said.

"And the evidence comes from the Republican's own witnesses," he noted. "The former envoy to Ukraine, Kurt Volker -- who resigned just one day after the release of the whistleblower's report -- telling the president's defenders exactly what they did not want to hear."

"They called him apparently expecting him to say what he said in his closed-door testimony, that he saw no evidence of a quid pro quo, or let's call it for what it is again -- a shakedown," he continued. "Well, now he says he was wrong."

Every person who testified before Congress has said that Trump's obsession with Joe Biden was concerning enough to alert others. Even National Security Council aide Tim Morrison stressed that he didn’t believe there was anything inappropriate about the call between Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. But when Rep. Val Demmings (D-FL) asked him why then he felt the need to report it if there was nothing wrong, Morrison struggled to find an answer.
