Doctor arrested after his female patient realizes that whips and sex toys aren’t part of your typical checkup November 21, 2013

A Lake Worth doctor carried on a ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ style relationship with a female patient after hours in his office — using whips, blindfolds and other sadomasochistic acts in an unconventional bid to combat her depression, according to Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office reports.

article-2510837-198B39C800000578-826_634x431Dr. David Simon wasn’t arrested or charged criminally because the relationship was deemed to be consensual, Sheriff’s Office reports stated.

But the doctor of osteopathy now faces the prospect of losing his license to practice in Florida, a member of the Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine said.

The Florida Department of Health filed an administrative complaint against Simon in July, alleging inappropriate sexual conduct with a patient. Potential sanctions include permanent license revocation.

That’s the penalty the Florida Board of Osteopathic Medicine favors, one board member said Wednesday.

Dr. Joel Rose said that when Simon and his attorney appeared before a board meeting in Tampa on Friday, they proposed to resolve the issue by settlement. But the board countered with its own proposal.

“What I can tell you is that the board made a counteroffer to him to revoke his license,” Rose said, adding that it appeared the case could now head to an administrative hearing.

Attempts to reach Simon or his attorney for comment Wednesday were unsuccessful.

In 2011, the female patient, now 39, told investigators about Simon’s methods after her psychologist got in touch with deputies. The psychologist was concerned because the woman spoke of a sexual relationship with a physician who was withholding her medication, according to Sheriff’s Office incident reports.

Deputies spoke to the woman, whose name was redacted from the documents. They also spoke that day to Simon at his office.

Simon told deputies he did nothing wrong, and said the relationship was “fully consensual.” The woman agreed the relationship was consensual, although she said she suspected it was inappropriate.

According to a Sheriff’s Office report, Simon referred to the sessions — there were about 15 between in the year leading up to December 2011 — as “punishment therapy.”

Simon also told deputies that the woman initiated the activity. He said she had asked him if he was “into sex toys and requested to have a sadomasochistic relationship with him,” according to the report. He said he agreed but told the woman he couldn’t see her as a patient anymore if they were to have a sexual relationship.

According to the Sheriff’s Office reports, Simon said he terminated the woman as a patient before the sessions began, something that contradicted what the woman had said.

The woman told deputies that Simon choked her while she was naked, tied her up, locked her in a closet and slapped her. She also performed sex acts on the doctor as a token of gratitude, the reports said.

The woman never paid for the sessions, and she said that Simon would give her free samples of medication and money to buy food.

While questioning Simon at his office, deputies found “several sexual items” including whips, chains, blindfolds, cuffs, condoms and other sex toys.

According to the report, the woman “believed this was therapy” and told deputies that Simon told her it would help her.

“I don’t really like it but he told me it would help,” the woman was quoted as telling investigators.

When her psychologist contacted the Sheriff’s Office, the woman said she wanted the sessions to stop.


Woman stole sex toy …. then asked about a job November 19, 2013

sfl-flduh-stole-sex-toy-job-20131118-001 A woman is accused of going into an adult products store intoxicated, shoplifting a sex toy by concealing it in her pants, then inquiring about a job, according to a Crestview Police Department arrest report.

The store manager told a police officer the 23-year-old woman came into Intimate Treasures on East James Lee Boulevard and inquired about a job, leaving her name, address and telephone number. Afterwards the manager noticed an Evolved brand female sex toy was missing from its display location. She reviewed video surveillance and spotted the woman “manipulating the front of her pants and shirt, in an action consistent with concealing the device within her pants,” the officer wrote in the report.

Police contacted the woman, whom they positively identified as the person in the video. They showed her the video and she confirmed it was she.

“As the defendant viewed her actions, she exclaimed in disbelief, ‘Oh my God. Look at what I’m doing. Oh my God. I’m gonna cry,” the report indicated.

“After viewing the video footage, the defendant retrieved the stolen device, which had been used and was no longer in a condition to be returned to the business, and advised she did not remember taking it,” the report stated.

She admitted she was “very drunk” when she was in the business.

She was charged with retail theft and has a Nov. 26 plea date.


Mom gets 54 years in prison for sexually abusing her children November 4, 2013

sarahadleta-jpg-20131025An Oviedo mother who sexually abused her children and produced pornography of the acts was sentenced to 54 years in federal prison Monday — more than twice as much time she was hoping to receive as part of her plea deal.

Prosecutors said Sarah and Jonathan Adleta made having sex with their two children a part of their parenting plan, and even after they divorced, the abuse continued.

Sarah Adleta pleaded guilty to two charges in May and testified against her ex-husband during his graphic trial last month.

Adleta also performed sex acts on her children while another man, Aaron Dixon, watched via Skype.

On Monday, Sarah’s sentencing hearing was, at times, as disturbing as her ex-husband’s trial.

Mental health counselor Cherilyn Rowland Petrie testified that the Adletas’ daughter, who was 4 years old when the FBI arrested the parents, was malnourished, not toilet-trained, was at the developmental level of an 18-month old, and had “sexualized” behaviors.

The child’s sexual behavior was so troubling to her caretakers, that she was removed from the home.

Sarah Adleta’s father, Leonard Lippy, made an emotional plea to U.S. District Judge Roy B. Dalton Jr.: Give my daughter the maximum sentence possible.

“Sarah, justice is needed,” Lippy said.

Adleta asked the judge for mercy and said she allowed her ex-husband and Dixon to manipulate her. She said she is remorseful and will be “haunted” for the rest of her life.

Prosecutor Karen Gable, noting Adleta’s assistance, recommended the lower-end of the sentencing range, which would have been 27 years per count.

Public defender James Smith also pointed out that Adleta helped secure her ex-husband’s conviction, and also helped put two other people behind bars. Jonathan Adleta will be sentenced in December.

But Dalton reminded the court he had discretion to sentence Sarah Adleta to 27 years in prison per charge — and not a concurrent sentence as she may have hoped.

“The facts of this offense are particularly egregious,” Dalton said, noting the crimes are among the most “horrific” he has seen.


Deputy fired for pulling the hair of a police officer she caught having a daytime liaison with her husband October 25, 2013

Filed under: Amazing,Bad Luck,Bizzarre,Controversy,Dumb,Interesting,Sex,Unusual,WTF? — floridaduh @ 4:34 pm

os-edeania-nettles-photo-20131024An Osceola County deputy sheriff was fired Thursday in the wake of her arrest on a charge of battering a female police officer she found at a park with the deputy’s husband.

Deputy Edeania Nettles was let go after an internal investigation found her in violation of Sheriff’s Office policy, a department spokeswoman said.

Nettles, 39, was suspended after she was accused of punching St. Cloud police Officer Jennifer Hoyos, 26, in the face and yanking Hoyos out of her patrol car by the hair.

During the confrontation about 10:45 p.m. Oct. 2, Nettles’ husband, St. Cloud police Sgt. Elbert John Nettles, 36, tried to separate the woman, an arrest report states. He was at Ted Broda Memorial Park in St. Cloud with Hoyos, who was on duty, according to the report.

After the dust-up, Hoyos had a skinned knee, bloody lips, scratches on her neck and a clump of hair pulled out, investigators said.

Edeania Nettles was arrested on a charge of battery on a law-enforcement officer.

John Nettles received a written reprimand in 2012 after he accidentally shot off half of a fellow SWAT team member’s right middle finger during a drug raid. In 2011, he was one of two St. Cloud officers who shot a woman dead when they were called to a dispute between roommates.


A woman accused of trying to sell undocumented immigrants into the sex trade is denying the charges against her. October 24, 2013

Melissa Rodriguez, 41,  spoke to the media from jail Wednesday.

Rodriguez and Ysbette  Joseph, 31, were arrested this month in a sting that began in April when a  confidential source met Rodriguez at a nightclub in Ocala.


Rodriguez is a mother of  seven and said she misses her children.

“Hopefully, all this will  be cleared soon,” she said.

Agents said Rodriguez  agreed to recruit three young, undocumented immigrants from Haines City and sell  them as escorts.

Rodriguez allegedly told  the undercover buyer she knew how to manipulate them.

Investigators said both  women accepted a $1,500 down payment for the girls on July 23.

Rodriguez admits she took  the money, but she thought it was a loan.

“At the time, I was going  through a lot of financial problems. I needed to keep a roof over my kids’ heads  and pay the bills,” she said.

The arrest report says  Rodriguez told the confidential source “he can choose what to do with (the  girls).”

Rodriguez says it never  happened.

“I know what I did. I know  what I didn’t do, and I know that in the end, God will make sure it all comes  out,” she said.


‘Men say I just need a good raping’ October 23, 2013

Filed under: Interesting,Sex,Unusual,Weird,WTF? — floridaduh @ 9:11 pm

A 35-year-old woman has told how she has  never felt sexually attracted to men or women.

Julie Sondra Decker from Tampa, Florida,  revealed to MailOnline that she started describing herself as ‘nonsexual’ at the  age of 15 and when she became aware of the term ‘asexual’, she changed  it.

The outgoing blonde says that she’s had more  offers of sex than she ‘wants to count’ over the years but, ‘without the  feelings that usually go with that sort of thing, it’s kind of  gross.’



The writer, who lives alone in a  two-bedroom  apartment, states that she is not interested in dating or  pursuing a domestic  partner.

‘I have very close friendships but don’t want  a significant other. I don’t want to find another asexual to be roommates  with.

‘As far as I can tell I’ll be happy being  single my whole life.’

In a YouTube video, Miss Decker says that as  a young teenager she kissed and cuddled both boys and girls.

‘We are perceived as  not being fully  human becausesexual relationships  are seen as  something alive people do

But she concluded: ‘I never found anything  that floated my boat.’

She says that her family were convinced that  she was a ‘closet lesbian’.

Before she went to college her mother even  took her to the doctors because she wasn’t expressing ‘normal’  interest in the  opposite sex.

Given the all-clear she carried on with her  studies, graduating from the  University of Florida in 2000 with a degree in  elementary education and  psychology.

She said despite there being more awareness  about asexuality today, it still remains largely misunderstood.

She’s had male friends try and ‘fix’ her by  kissing her against her will and many insist that she will ‘wake up one  day’.


An asexual is someone who does not experience  sexual attraction.

Unlike celibacy, which people choose,  asexuality is an intrinsic part of who we are.

Asexuality does not make our lives any worse  or any better, we just face a different set of challenges than most sexual  people.

There is considerable diversity among the  asexual community; each asexual person experiences things like relationships,  attraction, and arousal somewhat differently.

Asexuality is just beginning to be the  subject of scientific research.


Since opening up about being asexual on the  internet, via YouTube and her blog, Miss Decker says that she’s received death  threats and been told by several commentators that she just needs a ‘good  raping.’

‘When people hear that you’re asexual, some  take that as a challenge,’ she told the Huffington Post.

‘We are perceived as not being fully human  because sexual attraction and sexual relationships are seen as something alive,  healthy people do.

‘They think that you really want sex but just  don’t know it yet. For people who perform corrective rape, they believe that  they’re just waking us up and that we’ll thank them for it  later.’

Miss Decker says that asexuality presents  itself in many forms. Some people, while lacking sexual attraction to any  gender, may engage in purely romantic relationships.

However, she defines herself as ‘aromantic’,  meaning she does not have any romantic feelings either.

Professor Bogaert, an associate professor at  Brock University in Ontario, Canada, suggests in his book Understanding  Asexuality, that around one per cent of the world’s population – 70million  people – are ‘asexual.

He believes that this demographic are  ‘under-studied’ and that they can feel excluded from our ‘very sexualised  culture’.

Experts say a certain number of asexuals may  have always existed but are only now starting to ‘come out’ as society becomes  more liberal.

To her ‘haters’, Miss Decker concludes: ‘I’m  not damaged, lonely or in need of a conversion because I’m not interested [in  sex].’

She hopes to raise awareness about asexuality  through her writing and public speaking.

‘[I want]  people who feel similarly to  know they’re not alone.’


Dad turns in exotic dancer who was sleeping with teenage son. Gee, THANKS, dad October 17, 2013

untitledA one-time dancer at Baby Dolls Lounge, an exotic dance club in Clearwater, pleaded guilty today to charges she had sex with a boy younger than 16, and was sentenced to more than seven years in prison.

Lauralee M. Beckham, 28, of 5130 17th Ave. S., Gulfport, was arrested last year on a charge of lewd and lascivious battery on a child younger than 16. The boy’s father alerted authorities to the consensual sex he said his son was having with her for about two weeks, the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office said at the time.

At the time, the sheriff’s office said she was unemployed. But on her Facebook page she listed her occupation as a dancer at Baby Dolls.

Today, Beckham was sentenced as a sexual offender and as a habitual offender. She was sentenced to 86.4 months in prison, with credit for 85 days served at the Pinellas County Jail.

In July 2010, Beckham served 14 months in state prison for forgery and possession of controlled substances, according to the Department of Corrections website. She was released in May 2011.


Trust issues? Think twice before doing a threesome October 11, 2013

sfl-flduh-trust-issues-threesome-20131011-001If you can’t trust someone as far as you could throw them, then maybe it’s not a good idea to sleep with that person, especially in a threesome situation.

On Tuesday, Johnny Anderson’s domestic partner called 911 after Anderson allegedly punched a hole in the sheet rock wall inside their Bradenton home and then punched the door of his partner’s car, causing a dent, as his partner tried to leave, according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office arrest report.

It seems the two men, who live together as a family, had a threesome earlier that day, according to Anderson’s partner.

Afterward, Anderson “became paranoid with trust issues,” the partner told deputies.

Anderson ‘fessed up to his behavior but added he would not hurt his partner because he loves him — even though he has a history of infidelity, the report said.


Cat-and-mouse game lands accused prostitute in trap October 3, 2013

Filed under: Bad Luck,Prostitution,Really Dumb,Sex,Unusual,Weird,WTF? — floridaduh @ 8:02 pm

It appears an accused hooker’s cat and mouse game with cop landed her a date with the judge.

sfl-flduh-hookers-cat-and-mouse-20131002-001An undercover Daytona Beach cop, who was working in an area known for street prostitution, called out to a woman, “Hey, babydoll, are you working?” according to police.

Once the woman, identified as Christina Marie Ferrara, 21, entered the unmarked police car, she immediately asked the ‘john’ if he was a cop. She then demanded he touch her breasts to prove that he was not a law-enforcement officer, according to the arrest report.

When the undercover officer told her that there were people nearby and was reluctant to touch her, Ferrara asked to exit the car, police reported.  Too late.

Since Ferrara allegedly asked the cop to touch her boobs on a public roadway in view of people, she committed another crime — offering or agreeing to a lewd or indecent act.


Man Kidnapped, Ran Over Teen After She Refused To Have Sex September 30, 2013

Adrian-Mendez-125x188A Marion County man has been arrested after deputies say he offered money to a 14-year-old girl for sex, then kidnapped her, strangled her and drove over her with his SUV when she refused.

Adrian Mendez was booked into the Marion County Jail on charges of attempted murder and kidnapping.

Deputies said they found the girl lying on the side of Wilson Parrish Road near Umatilla on Sunday night.  She was airlifted to the hospital with life-threatening injuries. Investigators say while she was at the hospital, she was able to pick her attacker out of a photo line-up and he was arrested at his Marion County home.

The victim says Mendez offered her $200 for sex and when she refused, Mendez grabbed her hair and pulled her into his Ford Explorer. He then strangled the victim until she lost consciousness, deputies said.

About 90 minutes later, deputies said they saw an SUV intentionally back over the girl and then sped forward, spinning the vehicle’s tires on the girl’s body.

“I keep seeing it in my head. How do you do that to a little girl?  When you got up there you could see she was a little girl,” said witness Shane Green, who says he was outside barbecuing when he heard the incident. “He was on top of her with the vehicle.  And I started screaming at him. He backed up, he literally backed up and hit her again and he went to take off because he heard us screaming at him.  He hit his brakes and was spinning his tires on top of that little girl.”

The girl was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries but her condition has slightly improved.

The girl’s grandmother said she wanted to ask Mendez why he would do this to her granddaughter.

“She’s only 14 years old.  Why?” she said. “He don’t have to do that to her.”

Mendez was located a short time later and arrested.
