Former school volunteer guilty in child rape case

Stephen Jabs, 53, shook his head as Kitsap Superior Court Judge Kevin Hull read the lengthy verdict forms. Jabs was convicted of 10 felonies: five counts of first-degree rape of a child and five counts of first-degree child molestation. (Kitsap Sun, July 18,2016)

About 850 Trucks Converged on Salem OR Memorial Weekend

We handed out about 900 key chains with the number to call printed on them to report sex trafficking activity. We asked truckers to keep an eye out for trafficking and be watchers on our roads. We 're happy to report there's now a team of trucker volunteers watching and reporting!   

Many thanks to friends Pat and Mike who helped with key chains as well as passing out tools for families to help keep children safe. They gave up their Memorial weekend to help. You're the best!

Sandy liked the model trucks. This one was used in wind tunnel testing.

Central Kitsap Firefighter Caught in Sting

‘LYNNWOOD, Wash. -- When Kevin Best (Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue) showed up in Lynnwood on Saturday detectives said he believed he was meeting a woman and 12-year-old girl for sex.
Six men, including Best, were arrested during the four-day undercover operation in Snohomish County that involved child rape and commercial sexual exploitation of minors.
Detectives said Best told them during the conversations that he had sex with other children in the past- including some he even drugged.
"You're being proactive. You're getting people who are not on the radar," said (Sgt.) Rodriguez. "These are people that are not (registered) sex offenders, nobody knows about-- these are the ones that I think are more dangerous."
Best, who has been with Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue since April 2004 is now on administrative leave. He's being held on a $500,000 bail.’ (KomoNews, February 22, 2016)

The Herald reports that prosecutors say the Marysville woman and her husband solicited customers through Craigslist to sexually assault the girl. Detectives say they found a video of the girl being abused by a man while her mother watched.’ (, Feb 4, 2016)

To demonstrate his concerns, the sex offender showed Target 8 the Role Play function inside of the kik app on a Target 8 phone. That function allows users to change their personal information and select the age range of those they want to contact.

Within minutes of creating a profile and without contacting anyone, two people — purportedly teenage girls — reached out to chat.’ (, Feb 2, 2015)
