Detroit police spokesman Sgt. Mike Woody says officers were serving a search warrant at the home near downtown, on Wednesday, June 25, 2014, when they stumbled upon Bothuell. (AP Photo/Courtesy Detroit Police Department)Recardo Wimbush, 33, and Therian Wimbush, 37, who have 10 children, told officials they locked the oldest in the basement because he ran away frequently and molested their other children, according to an incident report released by the Gwinnett County Police Department. "The house, even the room he was in was clean, but the conditions were not acceptable," said police spokesman Corporal Jake Smith. "It's pretty disturbing." The case started with an anonymous call to the county's child protective services department, reporting that a child was being held in a small room with a large jar to use as a makeshift toilet, Smith said. During a hearing to authorize the removal of the child and his nine siblings from the home, "the parents admitted they kept the child locked in the basement room, but said it was because he ran away often and molested the other children," the police incident report said.

California pair arrested over prostitution website

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 06/27/2014 - 07:16
By Madeleine Thomas SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - An adult website that prosecutors say hooked up prostitutes with clients, under a thin disguise of offering strip club reviews, has been shut down and the website's two Northern California operators were arrested, federal authorities said on Thursday. Federal prosecutors said the two were arrested on Wednesday in connection with the operations of the website, myredbook.com. The myredbook.com website gained attention in May in connection with the death of a Sacramento woman whom police say was killed by her live-in boyfriend, a battalion chief for a California wildland fire agency. Myredbook.com claimed to offer “escort, massage, and strip club reviews,” but FBI agents found it also hosted advertisements for prostitutes with explicit photos, menus of sexual services and hourly and nightly rates, federal prosecutors said.
