CINCINNATI, OH – It was a horror that will live with the girl the rest of her life.
Tevin Henderson, 22, is accused of raping and impregnating a 12-year-old girl. He’s been indicted on five counts of rape, all are felonies.
If convicted, he will face up to 55 years in prison, and he’ll remain permanently on the sex offender registry.
This is according to a press release from the Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters on Monday, September 14, 2020.
Ohio is a hotbed of child sex trafficking so I'm happy that Tevin Henderson has been indicted on five counts of rape and will face up to 55 years in prison for repeatedly raping and impregnating a 12yo girl. Nice to see some justice for a change this year!

Henderson was a “family acquaintance” at a residence in Winton Terrace. He repeatedly raped a 12-year-old girl in a resident at Winton Terrace to where she became pregnant in 2019, according to police.
The girl realized she was pregnant and confided in a trusted adult about what happened.
Winton Terrace, located in Cincinnati’s historic Winton Hills, is a Cincinnati Metropolitan Housing Authority built for low income families. It offers more than 600 townhouses.

Deters showed his disgust towards Henderson:
“There are no words to describe this kind of horrible crime against a child. We have yet to coin a word in the English language adequate to describe someone who sexually abuses a child and causes a 12-year-old to give birth.”
Deters took a moment to reflect.
“On a personal note, I’d like to say the following. These types of cases are much too prevalent in our area and nationwide. It makes me sick to my stomach.
To prey upon a young girl sexually, impregnate her, and think nothing of it is disgusting and should be totally unacceptable to everyone who hears of these acts. We will work diligently to remove him from the streets of Hamilton County for as long as possible.”
Henderson is held at the Hamilton County Justice Center, with bail set at $250,000. His hearing is scheduled for September 25.
James Costin is Henderson’s defense attorney. He is mostly an insurance, Consumer Protection, Criminal Defense, Juvenile, and family attorney.
He has been licensed for 34 years and got his law degree in University of Cincinnati College of Law.
Henderson’s lawyer, Costin, declined to comment on the indictment.
Regrettably, the victim in this case fits perfectly within the statistical profile of child rape. According to research from parentsformeganslaw.org, one in three girls are sexually abused before they are 18 years-old.
The average age for the first abuse for girls is 9.6 years old. This typically occurs during a on-going relationship between the offender and victim. The victim was raped multiple time by Henderson.
The most vulnerable age for sexual abuse is between 7 and 13 years old. Additionally, 93 percent of the juvenile assault victims know their attacker, and 58 percent were acquaintances.
We know that Henderson was an acquaintance to the family.
However, one statistic that this little girl dodged is that less than 12 percent of child sex abuse is reported to the police. She was brave enough to talk to a trusted adult to get help.
The victim in this case will have to deal with the aftermath. The problem according to the Parents for Megan’s law is that she may grow into a distorted self-concept. They have added that:
High rates of depression, anxiety, substance abuse, dissociative disorders, interpersonal dysfunction, sexual problems and suicidal ideation have all been identified to varying degrees among men and women who survive child sexual abuse.
The World Young Women’s Christian Association defines the child sexual abuse as when a child is used for the sexual stimulation of the perpetrator and is often forced to silence the victim.
This why that most of the reports are low. This yet another statistic our victim falls into. She was abused by a 22-year-old male. The statistic is 96 percent of people who sexually abuse kids are male, and 76 percent of abusers are adults.
Statistically, Henderson probably “groomed” the small victim, which includes isolating the girl, special attention to her, filling needs and roles within the family, or treating her as if she were older than she was. He probably used secrecy, blame and threats to maintain control as he became increasingly sexual.
Police arrest man who tried to rape woman in NYC in broad daylight – and he has a long record of arrests.
NEW YORK, NY – They got him!
On Sunday, police arrested a Bronx man in the attempted rape of a 25-year-old woman. It happened in a disturbing daytime attack on an Upper East Side subway platform, and was all caught on video.
And big surprise – he’s got quite the record in New York.
Jose Reyes, 31, has a record of charges including robbery, grand larceny, petty larceny, assault of a police officer and others, police sources shared with Law Enforcement Today.
And we’re told that at least three of the prior arrests were on transit.
According to reports, facial recognition played a role in identifying Reyes, and his face matched a mugshot from an arrest earlier this year.

He’s now charged with attempted rape, sexually motivated assault, assault and harassment.
“This heinous and horrendous act was interrupted by a good Samaritan who observed Mr. Reyes’ behavior and got him to cease his behavior while subsequently videotaping the incident,” NYPD Chief of Detectives Rodney Harrison said at a press conference.
Here’s the back story about the incident. The suspect was caught on camera engaged in what appears to be an attempted rape of a 25-year-old victim.
The incident, which happened within a Manhattan subway platform, shows the deranged looking suspect simply walk away as though he was doing nothing to the victim when caught.

Sources say that the attack occurred on August 29th on the Lexington Avenue and 63rd Street Q platform in Manhattan.
The video captured has had the audio removed, but reportedly bystanders were yelling at the male suspect to get off the woman as she could be heard screaming.
Reports indicate that the woman suffered minor injuries from the attack, but also refused any medical attention. The suspect is currently at large, and police are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying the male suspect.
Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity or whereabouts is urged to contact the NYPD’s Crime Stoppers Hotline at 1-800-577-TIPS (8477) or for Spanish, 1-888-57-PISTA (74782).
Elsewhere within New York City, police are trying to locate the man who launched an attack on NYC traffic agents.
If one may be curious as to what a band of unarmed, social workers handling police business would look like – look no further than the meter officers getting attacked recently in New York City for issuing a simple order to move a vehicle.
NYPD traffic agents were in the process of telling a driver to move their vehicle on August 26th at approximately 8:00 p.m. on Fordham Road when the driver decided to literally fight the two traffic agents over getting told to move his car.

Traffic agents Adams Mandiata and Edwyn Stuart had located an illegally parked Nissan Altima and Mandiata stated the the driver stated the following when he and Stuart approached the car:
“What the fuck you guys here for?”
Mandiata stated that this enraged the driver, who then attempted to take a swing at Stuart while both were still inside of the car. Both traffic agents exited the vehicle, and the suspect began taking swings at both of them.
When the suspect was attacking the agents, he honed in on Mandiata – which was captured on video:
“I was backing up, backing up. He just punched my left eye so hard. I fell down. I couldn’t see anything.”
Describing the aftermath of the attack, Mandiata explained that he still has difficulty using his eye:
“It’s hard to even open my eye.”
Yvette Izavuirre, a witness to the attack and the owner of nearby La Perilla Latina restaurant, was shocked that someone would attack traffic agents like this so brazenly:
“He was instigating all the fighting. He was really violent. I was just like this is crazy. What can make this guy just actually go on and hit the meter guys? If you got a ticket just accept it, don’t break out and hit somebody, because he’s just doing his job.”
Sokunbi Olufemi, executive vice president of Local 1182 of the Communications Workers of America represents these very types of traffic enforcement agents. Olufemi stated that these types of enforcement agents are becoming targets for violent criminals who wish to attack police:
“[Traffic agents are] soft targets for these thugs because we have nothing to defend ourselves.”
Not only do they have nothing to defend themselves – but these violent criminals have nearly nothing to worry about. That’s because bail reform would likely be on their side when it comes to New York City.
Olufemi feels that these enforcement agents should at least be able to carry pepper spray and a baton.
This THUG needs to get locked up.
— Chloe (@MistralWinds) August 30, 2020
But Olufemi is all too aware of all the nonsensical red tape around not just policing in general these days, but also regarding traffic agents:
“Assault on traffic agents is very common, but now it’s a daily occurrence. he situation is getting worse daily since the city council handicapped the cops with the stupid laws [that] favor the criminals. Who can we go to for help? Police officers? They’re seeking … help too, nobody is listening to them.”
Now, Mandiata is thinking that it just might be time to hang up his hat and quit:
“You never know what is going to happen again. You might lose your life.”
It has come down to police literally having to be beaten up by miscreants and still have their hands tied behind their backs.
While the ill-informed public clamors whenever they believe they’ve witnessed a case of excessive force, they’re either non-vocal on cases like this or even celebrate it or claim officers should have “better training” to handle combative suspects.
So, they need to be trained MMA fighters, psychologists specializing in everything, social workers, lawyers (civil and criminal), snipers and a million other professions rolled into one while getting paid shit in some places, hated by many, assaulted or killed, ….
— Jay Blue (@hereandnow54321) August 29, 2020
But what is it? First police need to be trained to better “deescalate”.
Then, police also need to be physically superior to all physical threats who do not actually hold a weapon. But then they shouldn’t use a chokehold. But they also should learn MMA to avoid using a gun or taser according to critics.
If you haven’t noticed – these people do not like police no matter what they do because they simply do not like police. There is no threshold that police could ever attain to gain the adoration of a criminal or their sympathizers, because active criminals abhor police as do those who adore criminals.
We are battling over the very soul of our country. We are fighting for our families. And we’re on the brink of losing America.
This editorial is by Kyle S. Reyes, the National Spokesman for Law Enforcement Today. It’s a modern refresh of a previous editorial he wrote… and touches on the desperate tipping point America is facing right now.
While you were fighting over who among you was more “woke” and which company to boycott … we lost our country.
While you were arguing with coworkers over who would leave the country first if Trump/Biden were elected, the “American Dream” perished.
Don’t believe me? Then perhaps ALL is lost. And I can prove it all to you through the eyes of a child.
The screens around our house in the past couple of weeks stand in stark contrast to what’s in front of them.
The television … the laptops … the iPads … the cell phones … filled with images of the riots. The violence. The hatred.
Just a few months ago, when everyone was working from home – or unemployed – signs were put up around the community thanking police. People cheered and put out Tweets and Facebook images of first responders doing “birthday parades” for little kids.
Now, angry Americans are taking over police departments, shooting cops, pelting them with bricks and bottles of urine and demanding that we abolish them. The images are on certain channels – others ensure you just see the “peaceful protestors”.
Broadcast on the same tv stations are the sounds of tone-deaf leaders. Of anger. Of hatred. Of hurt. Of fear. Of race-baiting, dividing rhetoric and alienation.
In front of those screens run our little daughters.
They are the greatest blessings a young family can have. Filled with innocence, love, joy and our hopes for the future.
What brought a lull in that media noise?
Hearing our pastor give a sermon.
He usually preaches about love. Faith. Hope. But there was a different dynamic in this message.
There was a different energy.
This time, he talked about the end of times.
He’s far from being an alarmist. Just the opposite. But this particular service, he spoke deeply and heavily about being prepared. “For we know not the hour … ”
He wasn’t trying to frighten people. But he also understood that he couldn’t be tone-deaf to the deep concerns of his flock.
It’s hard not to be afraid. It’s hard not to have an underlying anxiety. It’s hard not to wonder and pray over whether your children will have the same opportunities you did.
Growing up, I paid close attention in history class. And I’ve always felt a very deep sense of patriotism. I’ve always felt great respect for my country and believed that if, God forbid, we ever faced World War III, America would once again triumph.
Perhaps my fear, and the anxiety of so many others, is that we were wrong.
We were wrong because of one simple line that I believe may have been written wrong. It should have read, “One Nation, Divisible After All.”
Have we ever faced a time when our country was so polarized? Have we ever faced enemies so dangerous? Have we ever been on such a precipice that a frightening and painful energy radiated through each of us, tying us together in some disturbing, unifying, powerful and yet simultaneously divisive way?
I’m angered to see that we live in a country where we have gone soft. We’ve become hypocrites, and we’ve become pansies.
We forget that our grandfathers stormed beaches to protect freedom. Instead, we demand that the freedom now come in the form of a shelter from hearing words we don’t like.
Our friends and family alienate us because of who we vote for.
We try and put companies out of business because how DARE they not support the Marxist organization Black Lives Matter.
We doxx people and put their families in danger because they dare to support law enforcement.
We don’t question it when ‘leaders’ tell us to stay away from church. Stay away from family. Stay away from friends. Wear a mask. Don’t worry about not having a job. And we don’t bat an eye as the country rapidly marches – or rather sprints – towards the socialism that’s the destruction of a nation.
We give out trophies to kids who come in 8th place. Eighth freaking place. And then we let them take over part of an entire city – Seattle – and play house, allowing rapes and murders to happen in the city while police are kept out.
We dig up the graves of people who have been dead for a hundred-plus years because they had something to do with the Confederate flag, and that offends someone NOW. Then we destroy statues and give “get out of jail free” passes to the people who did it. LITERALLY get out of jail free passes. We have celebrities and politicians starting funds to bail criminals out of prison.
We allow politicians to hijack the country and spend our tax dollars chasing their personal agenda of impeaching a President simply because they don’t like him. Then we have the party that’s supposedly the same as the President who sit around silently while the country burns. It seems as if both parties forgot what they were supposed to be doing and whom they are supposed to be representing.
We pick sides and parties and teams and defend them to the ends of the Earth, ignoring the facts, pointing the fingers and hoping someone else will cover the cost of our skyrocketing and borderline pointless health insurance.
We talk about the number of homeless vets who we have to feed and clothe and house when it’s convenient for us to leverage them like pawns in a game – yet tomorrow, so many will forget to feed and clothe and house them.
We ignore the simple facts about our dangerously open borders and the lack of a vetting process for refugees, then we stand in horror as ISIS attacks and we ask our politicians how they could have let this happen. And then, of course, we put a fast lane in for more to cross the border.
We put in place more gun laws to prevent the bad guys from doing bad things. Because for some reason, we believe that bad guys give a damn about laws and that giving them an open shooting range on a military base or school campus will somehow protect our citizens. But then we completely ignore the massive problem of mental health in this country. We’re more worried about the tool than we are the person.
Hell – not only do we ignore the problem of mental health – we double down on it but crashing our economy, putting millions out of work and then confine them to their homes.
We cry out that police are our enemies … and then we beg them to protect us from the likes of ISIS.
We are talking about DEFUNDING police while telling them that they do a lousy job training. Because the solution to that is making sure they have less money, right?
We have a massive audience talking about ABOLISHING police.
Let that sink in.
We celebrate court rulings with rainbow flags that speak volumes about how far we’ve come and how inclusive we are as Americans … then we tell our neighbors to remove their American flags and stop saying “Merry Christmas” and “Happy Hanukkah” because it offends us.
We send billions of dollars overseas to help the homeless in impoverished and war-torn nations while we cut the funding for our own food banks and homeless programs.
We get into fistfights about “under-inflated balls” while gorging ourselves on beer and wings at football games … while millions of Americans wonder how they’re going to pay their mortgage and put food on the table for their families.
We fight tooth and nail over whether someone dying of stage four pancreatic cancer should be allowed to use medical marijuana while drugs like heroin are running rampant in our schools.
Schools that apparently kids will have to wear masks in, if they ever reopen.
We teach kids that there should be no boys section or girls section at the store, but our kids notice that we won’t sit down with our neighbor for a beer because they have a different skin color and we’re too busy fighting over what is and isn’t racism.
We hold massive rallies demanding $15/hour for flipping burgers … but we sit quietly on the sidelines when our men and women protecting our country who make $11/hour aren’t getting paid because Congress is debating their funding.
We’re told if you go to a protest over the government shutting down your business, you’ll be arrested because it’s a health threat. We’re told if you go to a Trump rally, you don’t care about making people sick. We’re told if you go to a violent riot and torch buildings, you’re a social justice warrior.
We’re terribly focused on what matters to us as individuals. Marriage. Cell phones. Birth control. On and on and on. We’re so worried about what matters to “me” that we forgot that in order for us to have a “me” … we have to first have an “us.” A safe “us.” A unified “us.” An “us” that can at least find some kind of middle ground.
Tomorrow is a new day. So tonight, before bed, we pray … just a little harder, perhaps, than we’ve prayed before.
We put our daughters to sleep and shut off the television. The internet. The phones. The iPads. All screens but the black and white monitor where we can see nothing but innocence.
And for a moment, just one fleeting, precious moment, we’re once again one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
We hope you’ll consider getting in the fight with us. Here’s what Law Enforcement Today – the largest police-owned media outlet in America – is doing.
We at Law Enforcement Today want to make our stance very clear.
We strongly and firmly stand behind the Second Amendment, companies that keep civilians and law enforcement officers safe through products and innovation, and the men and women who serve and protect our communities and our country.
We are launching a new series of options to help our partners and other patriotic businesses to be able to connect with consumers. While we can’t replace Google, Bing or Facebook – we sure can provide options to ensure that these companies and our brothers and sisters have a voice.
We welcome with open arms companies that openly support law enforcement, and we are proud to offer them options to get their products to market.
We started noticing the problems a couple of years ago. Social media was scaling back the reach of content that it didn’t believe people should see.
Not that there was anything offensive about it. We’re talking about pro-police videos, stories about patriotic Americans and more.
And from our perspective, that created a huge problem. We have some of the greatest warriors in the world. Yet their voices and their stories were being buried.
The mainstream media, on the rare occasion that it would tell some of these stories, would give you only a piece of them. They’d cram as much as they could into a 90 second segment, slap their bias on it and that was it.
We needed to fix it. And so we are.
Law Enforcement Today (LET) is proud to announce the launch of LET Unity – a new home focused on bridging the gap between civilians and civil servants. We’ve merged with The Whiskey Patriots to massively expand content, rolling out hundreds of videos to members.
Many of those in our focus groups dubbed it the “Netflix of the law enforcement community”. But the truth is, it’s so much more.
The first officer in the door at the Pulse nightclub shooting.
Emergency responders from the Parkland shooting.
The bomb squad that responded to the Aurora movie theater massacre.
Survivors of the Dallas five killings.
The first Marine Guard hostage in the Iran crisis.
The CIA agent who started a counter human trafficking company.
World War II veterans.
And so, so much more.
The membership is less than the cost of two coffees a month, and those who sign up for an annual membership will get some surprise bonuses in the mail. We decided to charge a nominal fee so we could take all of the proceeds and reinvest them into capturing more of these stories. The majority of our content producers for Law Enforcement Today are active, retired or wounded law enforcement officers. The revenue we make helps provide for their families and helps bring a TRUE voice about what’s happening in America.
On top of that, we’re opening up the platform to some well-known podcasters who are going to be joining the team with some incredible content soon.
We have a problem in society. Censorship has created an existential threat to democracy. But even worse is the risk we run that some of these incredible stories of patriotism, hope, faith and our Sheepdogs would be lost.
We’ve launched a series of content with Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) to share the stories of survivors. We will also be dropping a weekly law enforcement focused newscast that addresses some of the most important topics in the country… and helps bridge the gap between those who serve and those whom they serve.
On top of that, we’ll soon be rolling out a series of private discounts and special promotions to members only as a “thank you” for being a part of the family.
You can also download the app to watch the content right from your iPhone.
We hope you’ll join us in this journey, knowing that your membership is going to give a voice to those who have been silenced for so long.
If you are one of the many companies out there that’s being censored – or you’re worried about what’s to come – don’t hesitate to reach out today. I can be reached at [email protected]y.com.
We will not be silenced. You shouldn’t be either.
God bless you all, and God bless America.
Want to make sure you never miss a story from Law Enforcement Today? With so much “stuff” happening in the world on social media, it’s easy for things to get lost.
