“Sodomy and sexual abuse”: Former softball coach arrested AGAIN after second victim reports sexual abuse as juvenile

Share:

HOOVER, AL – A former travel sports team coach in Alabama arrested earlier this year on sex-abuse charges of a juvenile is facing additional charges involving another minor.

Meagan Billingsley Deese, 30, of Pelham, was charged Feb. 23 with first-degree sodomy, first-degree sexual abuse and enticing a child to enter a vehicle or house for an immoral purpose.

Capt. Keith Czeskleba said an adult female contacted Hoover police on Feb. 14 and told investigators she had been “subjected to unwanted sexual contact” contact by a coach on her travel team when she was a minor.

The abuse, she told the police, occurred over a period of two to three years and stopped in 2016.

After the charges were announced, a second victim contacted the Hoover Police Special Victims Unit stating Deese had sexually abused her between 2018 and 2019.

During the second investigation, detectives learned that Deese was a leader of the victim’s church youth group when the abuse took place.
The case was turned over to the Jefferson County District Attorney’s office, which issued new warrants against Deese for first-degree sexual abuse and attempted first-degree sodomy.

Deese, who had been out on a $90,000 bond in the first case, was taken into custody May 6 and transported to the Hoover City Jail. She was then booked into the Jefferson County Jail at 6:14 p.m. and released Saturday after posting $45,000 bond, WBMA reported.
According to the University of Alabama-Huntsville Athletics website, Deese played outfield for the Chargers from 2010 through 2013 after graduating from Shelby County High School in Columbiana, WVTM reported.
Czeskleba said police are continuing to investigate Deese’s history to determine if there are more victims. Anyone with information is asked to call Sgt. Scott Prentiss at 205-739-6125.

Operation Child Protector: 17 child predator suspects arrested including several employees from Disney World

August 5, 2021

POLK COUNTY, FL – According to authorities, 17 people from across central Florida have now been charged resulting from a six-day undercover investigation into child predators held by multiple agencies.

The undercover investigation was called “Operation Child Protector” and according to the Polk County Sheriff’s Office, 16 of the 17 suspects are from Clewiston, Davenport, Kissimmee, Orlando, Polk County, and Zephyrhills. The other suspect was a visitor to the area from Los Angeles.

Sheriff Grady Judd stated that all 17 suspects intended to engage in sexual activity with what they believed were children, but instead the encountered undercover officers who were posing as children online. Judd said in a statement:

“These are nasty, nasty, nasty people and when we go through this, understand that obviously, we can’t even use the words they use. We obviously can’t show you the pictures and the video clips that they sent to what they thought were 13-year-old little girls and little boys.”

Among the 17 suspects, several of them reportedly work at Disney World.  Authorities stated that one couple, Savannah and Jonathan McGrew, wanted to engage in a threesome with a 13-year-old girl and role-play as stepparents and stepdaughter or in a shoplifting situation.

Both of those suspects worked as custodians at Walt Disney Hollywood Studios. Judd said:

“Are you kidding me? That’s how you’re talking to 13-year-old children.”

Another one of the suspects, Kenneth Javior Aquino, was a lifeguard at Disney Animal Kingdom Lodge.

Judd stated that Aquino left his pregnant girlfriend to have sex with someone he thought was a child. He was dressed in his work clothes when he came to the undercover location. The sheriff added:

“He’s a navy veteran. That’s right. He was working toward a dive team or a SEAL team or some kind of special ops job. They did a background check on him and found he had friends or affiliates that were gang members and they tossed him.”

Judd also stated that one suspect was HIV-positive and intended on having unprotected sex with a young girl. He did not identify who that suspect was. He added:

“Fortunately, our detectives were there instead of the 13-year-old child, but guess what? Had it been a curious little girl as opposed to our very experienced detectives, she would have been directly exposed to HIV.”

Authorities reported that in total, the suspects face 48 felony charges and two misdemeanors, with nine of them having criminal histories. The suspects are identified below:
