Man gets 76 years in prison after uploading photos of himself sexually assaulting a 5-year-old to Google Photos


LANCASTER, PA – A 37-year-old man has pled guilty to raping a 5-year-old along with several other felonies. The man has been sentenced to a total of 76 years in prison for his heinous actions.

John Henry pled guilty in the Lancaster County Court of 15 different charges which were filed against him. Some of the charges included the rape of a 5-year-old child which he uploaded to Google Photos and Google Drive.

When Henry faced Lancaster County Judge Donald Totaro, the Lancaster District Attorney’s Office noted that he asked the judge to “take it easy” on him. Something that Totaro had no intention of doing given the charges. Totaro said:

“Your crimes are heinous. There’s no other way to say it. It’s detestable.”

Totaro then sentenced Henry to 27 ½ to 76 years in prison for his crimes.

Totaro ordered consecutive sentences for the charges of rape of a child, aggravated indecent assault, incest of a minor, manufacturing of child pornography, and criminal use of communication facility.

In addition to Henry’s sentence, if he is ever released, he will have to register as a sexual offender.

The investigation into Henry started with the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, (NCMEC), who came across eight different sexually explicit child pornography images that had been uploaded to Google Photos and Drive.

NCMEC notified local authorities of the images who then started an investigation.

Police subpoenaed the IP addresses associated with the pornographic images which led them to Henry. Throughout their investigation, they were able to identify and arrest Henry for the crimes he would eventually plead guilty to in Lancaster Court.

Lancaster Assistant District Attorney, Janie Swinehart, said that Henry does not acknowledge or take accountability for what he has done. She said:

“[Henry] raped this very young child and memorialized these acts in videos and photographs. He doesn’t acknowledge his behavior or take accountability for his actions.”

Henry is not the only sexual offender that Totaro sentenced in 2022. Another sexual offender, Richard Scott Lessig, had been out on parole after pleading guilty to ten different felonies in 2005.

In September of 2020, Lessig’s parole officer caught up with him and searched a backpack that he was carrying. Parole officers can search anything a parolee has with them or in their residence at any time without notice.

The Lancaster District Attorney’s Office reported when the parole officer searched the backpack, a .9 mm handgun and ammunition were located.

The District Attorney noted the parole officer found live ammunition, men’s underwear, men’s socks which held additional ammunition, and his hunting license.

Lessig claimed that the backpack and the contents inside actually belonged to his girlfriend and plead not guilty. Lessig’s case did not go to trial until September of 2021 where he was found guilty of the parole violation.

Lessig appeared in court in front of Totaro who sentenced him to five to ten years in prison for the parole violation.

Lessig’s original convictions occurred in 2005 when he was accused of several crimes. When it came time for trial, Lessig pled guilty to rape, aggravated assault, robbery, unlawful restraint, and simple assault in the Lebanon County Court.

In midst of sex scandals, ratings crash, CNN to start streaming service to compete with Fox Nation

The following contains editorial content which is the opinion of the writer.

ATLANTA, GA- CNN—the Clown News Network, the Creep News Network—whatever you want to call it has difficulty with any of its programs reach one million viewers.

On some days, it receives less viewers than Paw Patrol, or even repeats of some rival news programming.

Yet, some genius thinks people are going to want to pay a premium to watch 24/7/365 of January 6. CNN, which at one time was the gold standard in cable news is in trouble—sinking ratings and sex scandals dominate news about the network, Breitbart reports.

CNN+, which the network will launch sometime early this year is the new streaming version of CNN.

Officials from the network call it the most important step in the network’s history since it was initially launched by Ted Turner some 40 years ago. However the launch is being overshadowed by scandals which are plaguing the network.

CNN also finds itself in the midst of uncertain times, with a pending merger between its parent company…Warner Media…and Discovery, which is adding to the doubts surrounding the company.

Discovery’s CEO David Zaslav is poised to run the combined companies. CNN head Jeff Zucker’s future is uncertain, but he has overseen a ratings plunge that has reached the point of being humiliating. His exit seems to be a no-brainer.

If the ratings debacle weren’t enough, two CNN producers were forced to resign recently (as Law Enforcement Today reported on) following scandals involving pedophilia.

One producer, Rick Saleeby, a now-former senior producer for “The Lead with Jake Tapper” is under criminal investigation following an expose by Project Veritas, which unmasked Saleeby for soliciting sexually explicit photos of an underage girl.

That report is detailed below. 

Meanwhile disgraced ex-CNN host Chris Cuomo’s now-former senior producer John Griffin was arrested last month on child sex trafficking charges. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

The allegations in that case say Griffin used Kik and Google Hangout to “persuade parents to allow him to train their daughters to be sexually submissive.”

One such incident involved Griffin convincing a nine-year-old girl to travel to his Ludlow, Vermont with her mother, where she was “directed to engage in, and did engage in, unlawful sexual activity.”

Cuomo was himself sent packing from CNN after revelations that he used his position at CNN in order to help another sexual deviate, his brother, and former New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, fight sexual harassment allegations.

In another embarrassment for the network, their legal analyst, Jeffrey Toobin was caught masturbating during a live Zoom call while with the New Yorker magazine, which included some of the magazine’s biggest names, the New York Post reported at the time. He was fired from the magazine and taken off the air at CNN.

Toobin’s excuse was that he believed he was “not visible on Zoom. I thought no one on the Zoom call could see me. I thought I had muted the Zoom video,” he said. Alrighty then.

After disappearing from CNN for eight months, he was back on the network as its chief legal analyst, joining the network’s “all January 6, all the time” package of programming.

Along with the ratings collapse and the sex scandals involving some of its “leading” programs, now CNN is launching a streaming service in an apparent attempt to compete with Fox News’ “Fox Nation” streaming service, which has been up and running for several years.

That platform includes original content programming, including a thrice weekly show called “Tucker Carlson Today,” which are long form interviews expanding on Carlson’s nightly highly-rated Fox program.

In addition, Carlson has a program called “Tucker Carlson Originals” which delves into a variety of current, important topics. Recent programs included a deep dive into the January 6 Capitol siege, the border crisis, exploding crime in Chicago, and the Kyle Rittenhouse’s case.

CNN+, as mentioned will be a subscription streaming service which will appeal to its far-left audience, many of whom have abandoned the network, which has seen its ratings collapse after Biden somehow beat Donald Trump in last November’s election.

CNN has attempted to keep the focus on Trump through its obsessive coverage of January 6, but apparently even leftists are tiring of the act.



In fact, Trump himself predicted CNN’s ratings would nosedive with him out of office and he has proved to be prophetic.

CNN regularly finishes a distant third behind Fox and another far-left outlet, MSNBC. In fact, one recent week last month saw the network average only 585,000 total viewers in primetime, putting it in 17th place among all basic cable networks.

Breitbart reported that in August, CNN went seven straight days without reaching one million viewers in one day. Carlson meanwhile averages over one million viewers (easily) per night.

Meanwhile, Brian Stelter, who hosts the hilariously named “Reliable Sources” often runs behind shows like reruns of The Golden Girls (RIP Betty White), the aforementioned Paw Patrol, and Sponge Bob  Square Pants. He has also finished behind shows on Animal Planet and the Food Network.

CNN insiders are saying that CNN+ is an attempt to gain younger viewers, however it is so far unknown what type of content they will feature to attract that demographic.

Given the typical clientele who would tune to a leftist network like CNN, perhaps they’ll stream video games or how to heat Hot Pockets. The service, according to an unverified report, will cost $5.99 a month.

CNN is attempting to build its audience by drawing on “big names,” with former Fox News Sunday host Chris Wallace, a liberal who will feel much more at home on CNN, having his own program on the service.

Other CNN “personalities” are believed to also be involved in the project; however their exact roles is unknown.

Perhaps Don Lemon can get a program on “how to pick up men by sticking your fingers down your pants and waving it under their nose.” Toobin can get a show, “How to Masturbate on Zoom for Dummies (Without Getting Caught).”

They can bring Chris Cuomo back to host a program called, “How to Shill for Your Nursing Home Patient-Killing Brother.” Finally, Brian Stelter can do his own version of “Man vs. Food.” Hey, maybe they can give Fauci his own program…he’s on there often enough. The possibilities are endless! 

It’s probably a safe bet that executives at Fox News aren’t exactly shaking in their boots at the prospect.
