CCHR hosted an event following World Mental Health Day where experts presented solutions to the challenges faced when dealing with youth mental health.

The fact is that more than 1 million children aged 0-5 are prescribed psychiatric drugs in the U.S. alone and parents are not being informed of the risks of the drugs or given alternatives to drugs.”

— CCHR International

TAMPA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the protection of children, hosted an event on October 13th following World Mental Health Day at the Church of Scientology in Tampa. During the event experts presented solutions to the challenges faced when dealing with youth mental health to an audience of concerned parents, educators, clergy and mental health practitioners.

Children in the United States are three times more likely to be prescribed psychotropic medications than European children according to a new study which is one reason why the Florida chapter of CCHR gathered together a panel of experts to present safe and healthy alternatives to approaching and tackling the subject of youth mental health. [1]

The panel discussion was moderated by the president of CCHR Florida, Diane Stein, who set the tone for event by playing a short clip from the documentary “The Marketing of Madness: Are We All Insane?” which details how the psychiatric industry is attempting to penetrate into nearly every aspect of American life by marketing drugs directly to consumers and attempting to convince the public that they, their children and even their babies, have a mental disease in order to prescribe their drugs.

A panel of experts, who helped bring more awareness, information and resources to the mental health, education and childcare community present at the event, followed this introduction.

The first panelist to speak was Dr. Richard Wallace, a specialist in family and sports medicine, who currently runs Bayside Urgent Care Center, a medical clinic in Clearwater, Florida. Dr. Wallace covered the effects of psychotropic drugs on the body and his experience from a medical doctors perspective on the harm caused by these drugs including heart failure in children. Stressing the fact that psychiatrists use no tests whatsoever in diagnosing the various mental illnesses they claim that so many have, Dr. Wallace encouraged those in attendance to first look for the actual medical reason for a child or teens behavior as a first course of action.

Following Dr. Wallace, school principal and founder of the H.E.L.P. School in Miami, Florida, Barbie Rivera told her personal story of the push to have her son diagnosed and labeled with mental illness in the first grade and how this prompted her to look for alternative solutions.

Ms. Rivera covered how through correct education techniques and care her school has been able to help countless children achieve success without using the psychiatric labels and drugs their parents were told they needed in order to learn. Using Helen Keller as an example to demonstrate that anyone can learn, Rivera ended her presentation with success stories of children who graduated from her school, went on to college and in one case even won an Emmy.

Dr. Candice Stewart-Sabin, a clinical psychologist with over 22 years of experience and an advocate for alternative treatments to mental health, concluded the panel presentation by telling the audience how she lost her son as a result of psychiatric drugs. Citing statistics that show that therapy and counseling are proven to be far more successful than psychiatric drugs, Dr. Sabin spoke of her experience with the gross over diagnosis of psychiatric disorders and how she has found alternative treatments such as nutrition programs, improving the home life of a child and other non-drug treatments to be successful.

The forum was then opened up to questions from the audience, which was composed of psychologists, licensed mental health professionals, school counselors, teachers, doctors and members of child advocacy non-profit groups including Guardian ad Litem members. When asked, attendees reported that the forum was invaluable and that they hope to be able to use the information provided to improve how mental health issues are addressed when dealing with children and teens.

Transfers of personnel are an important part of doing business on a world-wide scale, explains attorney Magdalena Cuprys

Cuprys & Associates (N/A:N/A)

There is, however, a road which makes it possible for one to legally access the United States. What is required is that a foreign company set up a U.S. affiliated company … in America.”

— Magdalena Cuprys, Immigration Lawyer

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — America is a nation of immigrants. Yet its immigration policy is strict. Each day new restrictions are imposed on immigrants intending to enter the country. Immigration is easier for those who have immediate family members who are American citizens or green card holders, or who have a million dollars to invest, or who have extraordinary ability or skills. All others may feel that they have to abandon their dream of going to that great land of plenty and opportunity.

Many people from around the world have an "American Dream." But they find that the road to this dream is no longer smooth and is turning rougher day by day. There is, however, a road which makes it possible for one to legally access the United States. On this road, there is no restriction to invest a minimum amount. One need not be a close relative of an American citizen, and one does not have to marry an American citizen. What is required is that a foreign company set up a U.S. affiliated company (Branch, Subsidiary, Affiliate or Joint Venture) in America. Then personnel can be transferred based on L-Visas.

Explains attorney Magdalena Cuprys: “The L-Visa for international personnel transfers also applies to smaller companies. For example, the Executive of a trading company in Mexico with 10 employees can set up a subsidiary in the U.S. and then transfer to the U.S. on a so-called L-1A visa. The U.S. company can even be in a different line of business.” Ms. Cuprys explains in more detail.

In order to qualify, one must demonstrate that the transferring employee has been employed abroad for at least one year out of the last three years as a Manager or in an Executive capacity (L-1A), or in a Specialized Knowledge position (L-1B).

A person is called a "Manager" in the parlance of American immigration law when he/she manages the organization or a department of that organization, supervises and controls the work of other supervisory professional, or manages employees and has the authority to hire and fire those persons whom he supervises.

If he/she is not supervising anyone then he/she should at least work at a senior level with the organization. A person who directs the management of the organization or a major part of it, sets the goals or policies of the organization or part of the organization, has extensive discretionary decision-making authority and is subjected to general supervision or direction only from higher level executives, partners, board of directors or the stock holders of the organization is deemed "executive" under the American immigration laws.

"Persons with Specialized Knowledge" are people having knowledge that is specific to the company where they are employed, its procedures and policies, company products, or particular marketing methods.

This affiliated company then has the legal capacity to qualify an employee for an L-Visa, which affords one the legal right to transfer to America to take up a similar position with the American entity. With an L-1 visa, the employee has extensive rights and privileges in the USA, is fully authorized to work, travel and conduct business throughout the duration of the L-1 Visa for up to seven years. One can remain in America continuously until the L-1 status expires, and can travel in and out of America as often as desired. However, the employee is only allowed to work for the American affiliated company.

This visa will initially be valid for 1-3 years (depending on how the U.S. affiliate has been doing business), and can thereafter be extended every 2 years for a total of 7 years. There are several immigration options once one holds an L-1 Visa through company sponsorship (Lawful Permanent Residence/Green Card). The accompanying family members (spouse/children) will also be eligible to obtain visas, and under newly enacted regulations, spouses are granted employment authorization (work permits). Children can attend US schools and universities and can often qualify for lower “In-State” tuition at Colleges and Universities.

There is no need for the American company to have existed for a long time. In fact, it can be established immediately prior to the application for the L-1 visa. Even a sole proprietor may utilize the L-1 visa if he is able to demonstrate to the U.S. immigration authority that in his absence there would be a responsible person in his country of nationality to look after and manage day to day running of his business. It is not necessary that the U.S. affiliate carry on the very same business which is being carried on in the applicant’s home country.

The whole process of setting up such an affiliate and obtaining the L-1 visa can be completed within a few weeks utilizing the Department of Homeland Security "Premium Processing" Service. This service processes cases within 2 weeks and can be an extremely efficient procedure.

Concludes Ms. Cuprys: “The law firm of Cuprys & Associates/Serving Immigrants is here to assist clients in pursuing these and other available immigration avenues. In the business context, it is particularly important to seek legal advice before you act.”

Gov. Cuomo & AG Underwood refuse to move convicted sex offenders out of group homes

The most dangerous people and criminals are those that protect and shield sexual predators and rapists allowing them to continue to rape and destroy more innocent victims’ lives.

Gov. Cuomo and Attorney General Underwood are endangering the welfare of incompetent people by moving convicted sex offenders from prisons into group homes

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – Former NYS employee & convicted sexual predator

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 16, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — As an advocate for 1,000,000 New Yorkers with disabilities and a whistle-blower, Michael Carey has been met by strong resistance by the Cuomo administration and by Attorney General Underwood. Serious state and federal crimes are being committed and countless sexual predators are being allowed to easily sexually assault or rape our most vulnerable. Just yesterday, Gov. Cuomo’s Deputy Secretary of Health, Paul Francis, refused to speak and stop these atrocities, even locking his Capitol office doors and AG Underwood blocked incoming calls from Carey and further requests for EMERGENCY help for the disabled.

Group homes are for our most vulnerable people with disabilities, not for convicted sex offenders and known sexual predators. – Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

Governor Andrew Cuomo has been illegally placing convicted sex offenders and felons into group homes for years according to the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD). Attorney General Barbara Underwood has looked the other way and has ignored 10 certified letters from Michael Carey seeking emergency help for the disabled in the last four months alone, she is disregarding the immediate safety and civil rights of people with disabilities.

New York State penal law 260.25 says it is a felony crime to endanger the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person.

“A person is guilty of endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree when he knowingly acts in a manner likely to be injurious to the physical, mental or moral welfare of a person who is unable to care for himself or herself because of physical disability, mental disease or defect.

Endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree is a class E felony.”

The Jonathan Carey Foundation is bringing these illegal and extremely dangerous matters to the forefront and has located over five dozen sexual predators so far from minimal research, only having a partial list of facilities and group homes. Statistically, it appears that the numbers of convicted sex offenders already placed into group homes throughout New York State may be in the hundreds. All requests to immediately remove these sexual predators from facilities and group homes have been ignored by Cuomo and Underwood.

The Jonathan Carey Foundation has also uncovered another scheme in which the State of New York is also warehousing hundreds of convicted sex offenders within psychiatric facilities. Only imagine the extreme dangers for other people living in these facilities that are struggling with a mental health problem, to have them possibly be further harmed by being raped? Federal authorities have been asked to intervene.

All New York State District Attorney’s have also been asked by Michael Carey the founder of the Jonathan Carey Foundation to intervene to stop these illegal placements, to ensure the removal of all sexual predators from group homes and facilities with the disabled and to prosecute the individuals involved in committing these egregious crimes.

The State has publicly acknowledged that they have been placing convicted level 2 and level 3 sex offenders that have a clear and known risk of re-offending to live in group homes with the developmentally disabled. The State of New York is attempting to claim that they can protect disabled residents, which is absolutely ludicrous and impossible, hardly any safety and abuse prevention measures are in place. The state’s only solution is to cover-up the sexual assaults and rapes and that is exactly what they are doing at the fraudulent Justice Center abuse hotline also operated by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Here is what a convicted sexual predator and pedophile said of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s system, it is “a predators dream.”

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."

CCHR: Veterans Get Damaging Mental Health Deal— Suicides increase & VA spends $1M on unsafe electroshock devices

Approximately 20 veterans a day take their own lives, and veterans accounted for 14 percent of all adult suicide deaths in the U.S. in 2016

Approximately 20 veterans a day take their own lives, and veterans accounted for 14 percent of all adult suicide deaths in the U.S. in 2016

CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections.

CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections.

CCHR

CCHR is calling for an investigation into ECT following a report that suicide rates of veterans aged 18 to 34 jumped more than 10 percent between 2015 and 2016.

The report doesn't discuss the apparent failure of the mental health system to deal with the needs of veterans, despite a VA mental health budget that has soared more than 55% between 2011 and 2018.”

— Jan Eastgate, international president of CCHR

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, October 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Veteran Affairs Administration (VA) reports that the suicide rate of veterans aged 18 to 34 jumped more than 10 percent between 2015 and 2016—the most recent figures—after a steady increase since 2006. Nearly 60 percent of veteran suicide was by individuals aged 55 or older. [1] Mental health watchdog, Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR) says the VA and military agencies are not looking at the damage psychotropic drugs and electroshock treatment can contribute to suicide. CCHR says that suicide-inducing psychotropic drugs and electroshock should be investigated for their potential role in suicides and violence. The group’s investigations found that since 2008, the VA has spent more than $1 million on electroshock devices and related parts, despite the manufacturers never having provided clinical trials proving safety and efficacy.

A Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by CCHR with the VA reveals that between 2012 and 2016, an average of 950 veterans received around 11,323 electroshocks. In those veterans aged 55 to 64, 1,459 vets received electroconvulsive therapy (ECT)— the passage of up to 460 volts of electricity through the brain causing a grand mal seizure. Another 975 aged 65 to 74 were also administered the damaging procedure. In those younger than 25, and up to the age of 34, there were 415 who had received ECT. [2]

CCHR’s investigation also shows that since 2008, the VA has purchased dozens of ECT devices at a cost of over $1.1 million, of which about 40 were bought since the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) held a public hearing into ECT in January 2011 that recommended the ECT device remain in a high-risk classification, requiring a clinical trial proving safety and efficacy. Jan Eastgate, international president of CCHR, said, “Since the 1970s, Congress has mandated that the FDA ensure all such Class II high-risk medical devices have their safety clinically proven. The 2011 FDA hearing reinforced the need for safety and efficacy clinical trials. Yet FDA has failed to do this and is now also putting veterans at risk.”

According to the recent VA report, approximately 20 veterans a day take their own lives, and veterans accounted for 14 percent of all adult suicide deaths in the U.S. in 2016, even though only 8 percent of the country’s population has served in the military. This same report reveals that veterans are more than twice as likely to die by suicide as non-veterans. [3] The VA doesn’t specify how many of those committing suicide had been taking violence and suicide inducing psychotropic drugs or who had undergone ECT leading up to their suicide. Adds Eastgate, “Nor does it discuss the apparent whopping failure of the mental health system to effectively deal with the special needs of returning vets, despite a VA mental health budget that has soared more than 55% between 2011 and 2018, from $5.2 billion to more than $8.1 billion.” [4]

In a 2014 submission that CCHR filed with the U.S. Senate VA Committee, it reported that there were almost 50 international drug regulatory agency warnings about psychiatric drugs causing suicidal ideation. Between 2005 and 2011, the military increased its prescriptions of psychoactive drugs (antipsychotics, sedatives, stimulants and mood stabilizers) by almost 700 percent. [5]

Antidepressants carry an FDA “black-box” warning of “suicidality” for those younger than 25, yet these drugs are prescribed to this age group in the military. While 41 percent of deployed American soldiers are aged 18-24, CCHR asks, of those, how many attempted or committed suicide while prescribed antidepressants. [6] Since 2001, the VA and Department of Defense (DoD) also spent over $790 million on one antipsychotic, risperidone. Yet in 2011, the VA reported that the drug was no more effective in treating combat stress than a placebo. [7]

The DoD Navy division also paid more than $47,600 in ECT device purchases from two U.S. manufacturers, while the Army spent around $44,700.

Tricare, the DoD’s health insurance coverage, reports that between 2010 and 2016, an average of 745 military personnel or their family members were given an average of 12,147 electroshocks each year. Astoundingly, this included 12 children aged five or younger. [8]

The VA ECT guidelines undermine the potential serious risks ECT causes, including long-term memory loss, cognitive dysfunction and brain damage, CCHR says. The guidelines point only to “some risks,” such as “memory loss,” and make the claim that ECT could help prevent suicide in depression. [9]

However, a 2010 review of ECT studies found: “There are no placebo-controlled studies evaluating the hypothesis that ECT prevents suicide, and no robust evidence from other kinds of studies to support the hypothesis.” And, in a follow-up 2017 review of 91 studies on ECT since 2010, researchers, John Read, Ph.D., School of Psychology, University of East London, and Chelsea Arnold, School of Psychology, Swinburne University of Technology, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia, concluded: “Given the well-documented high risk of persistent memory dysfunction, the cost-benefit analysis for ECT remains so poor that its use cannot be scientifically, or ethically, justified.” [10]

CCHR says Congress should investigate the DoD and VA’s purchase of the ECT devices and the failure of ECT, psychotropic drugs and a multi-billion dollar veteran mental health system that appears to be doing more damage than good. Those concerned can sign CCHR’s online petition.

The Law Offices of Ayn Traylor-Sadberry aims to be competitive and just with their Domestic Relations and Family Law legal service pricing. “We here at our Law Practice seek to assist people in need of legal help, regardless of their financial situation. I fully understand that not all clients are going to be able to pay all fees up front, therefore flexible payment arrangements may be made.”

These will vary depending upon what is agreed to by both parties, whether it is a lump sum and then small payments after that or monthly/weekly arrangements. A Retainer Fee is a “lump sum” payment charged to commence legal services which retains the lawyer’s services and creates the underlying Attorney-Client relationship.

Part of the philosophy of Ms. Traylor-Sadberry is that “the Birmingham community has given so much to this office and has helped create its success, therefore, our goal is to give back …” Ms. Sadberry went on to say. “Not everyone will qualify elsewhere but our Law Office is willing to work with our Clients.” Some cases may even be handled on a “Success-Basis.” This essentially means that the potential Client is not required to pay any fees to the Law Firm at the outset to commence services. The Traylor-Sadberry Law Office will determine this possibility on a case-by-case basis. This may be an option for a potential client when specifically agreed upon and authorized by the Firm.

As to Initial Consultations, in most cases the Law Office of Ayn Traylor-Sadberry does not charge for the Initial Consultation (depending on the case type), however, in those cases where a Consultation Fee is charged, once retained, the Initial Consultation Fee is thereafter applied and fully credited to the Client’s Case Account.

NY State Justice Center protecting sexual predators, not people with special needs

Countless sexual predators and pedophiles live and work within the New York State mental health care system and almost all sexual assaults and rapes are covered-up internally

Bogus Justice Center uses the same strategy as the Catholic Church to protect sexual predators, internal reporting of sex crimes and bypassing of local police

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – a former NYS caregiver & convicted sexual predator

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Jonathan Carey Foundation was established by civil rights and disability rights advocate Michael Carey to protect our most vulnerable children and people with disabilities. Thousands of women and children with disabilities are being sexually assaulted and raped within New York State’s extremely dangerous mental health agencies and group homes.

The New York State Justice Center is operating a corrupt abuse hotline and is ensuring that there are rarely any criminal prosecutions of these sex crimes. Governor Andrew Cuomo is without question operating his mental agencies almost identical to the Catholic Church. Less than 1% of sex crimes reported to the fraudulent Justice Center are ever prosecuted. To wrap your mind around the scope of the astronomical and absolute rampant sexual abuse occurring multiply 1,300 sexual assaults times 33 to get the approximate numbers within the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) system annually. State records obtained through Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) reveal an average of 1,300 reported cases with OPWDD alone and according to a well known study called Prevalence of Violence only 3% of these sexual assaults are ever reported.

The Boston Globe exposed the Catholic Church and their system or culture of rampant sexual abuse and criminal cover-ups. The Jonathan Carey Foundation and its founder Michael Carey are exposing Governor Andrew Cuomo’s corrupt system and culture of rampant sexual abuse and criminal cover-ups. Internal reporting and the shuffling around of pedophile and sexual predator priests within the Catholic Church and the same within Governor Andrew Cuomo’s mental health agencies and group homes, but instead of pedophile priests, sexual predator caregivers and convicted level 2 and level 3 sex offenders. Wolves in sheep’s clothing are what these sexual predators and criminals are and they are destroying countless innocent people’s lives.

The Boston Globe’s Spotlight investigative reporting news team uncovered these sex crimes and atrocities, thankfully, a process of genuinely sideling many of these sexual predators began. Tragically, most pedophile priests and those that knew what they were doing, yet protected and shielded them, escaped criminal prosecution for their crimes.

In New York State, Michael Carey, his son Joshua, Tom Cavanagh and some other special people have been working hard to uncover these similar sex crimes and criminal cover-ups. Evidence reveals that directives of these cover-ups go right to the top, to Governor Andrew Cuomo. The governor can never claim that he never knew about the level of sex crimes or the level of criminal cover-ups within his agencies because he and his top staff are directly involved and have been warned to stop the cover-ups for years.

Who in their right mind would operate a system and culture of rampant sexual abuse and protect sexual predators, sex offenders, pedophiles and rapists, instead of protecting extremely vulnerable women and children with disabilities? Why would Governor Cuomo also allow convicted sex offenders to be moved from prisons to group homes to live with people with developmental disabilities? The top person in control is Governor Cuomo and all the mental health agencies are directly under his authority. How can the governor justify any actions that endanger incompetent and physically disabled and give the green light to sexual predators? There appears to be a system and culture in which sexual predators are rewarded for committing sex crimes in New York State. Everyone needs to know that these very sick individuals are being given the opportunity to sexually assault and rape our most vulnerable by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

This news story regarding a former New York State employee and caregiver who is a pedophile will disgust you. Stephen DeProspero called Cuomo’s system “a predators dream”. DeProsero was caught by the feds in a porn sting or he would still be sexually assaulting disabled children in a New York State run group home today.

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/new-york-pay-3m-family-boy-molested-group-home-article-1.2977392

It is Governor Andrew Cuomo that has directed the protection of sexual predators like DeProspero. Attorney General Barbara Underwood has been asked to intervene, but up until now she has chosen to look the other way to protect Governor Andrew Cuomo and the system, instead of our most vulnerable. The fact and the truth is that almost all reported sex crimes committed against people with disabilities within Cuomo’s agencies are covered-up. Cuomo’s corrupt Justice Center is systematically making almost all reported sexual assaults and rapes of the disabled within Cuomo’s agencies disappear.

At the same time all this is unfolding within New York State’s mental health care system, Attorney General Underwood is going after the Catholic Church for the same exact matters of covering -up sex crimes and the protection of pedophile priests. Both Gov. Cuomo and AG Underwood must be investigated swiftly by the US Department of Justice for their involvement in the protection of countless sexual predator caregivers and for purposefully placing convicted sex offenders within New York State’s mental health agencies.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo is secretly moving convicted sex offenders from prisons into group homes

The Cuomo administration is breaking numerous state and federal laws and is protecting countless sexual predators

Similar to the Catholic Church almost all sexual assaults are covered-up internally

I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream.”

— Stephen DeProspero – a former NYS caregiver & convicted sexual predator

ALBANY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Governor Andrew Cuomo has been illegally placing convicted sex offenders and felons into group homes, this has been happening for years according to the Office of People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD).

The Jonathan Carey Foundation has done enough research to date to advise the general public that this is happening on a wide-scale basis and is without question a state-wide problem that directly places our most vulnerable population at grave risk of sexual assaults and rapes.

How anyone in any position of power could be part of such a corruption scheme is beyond comprehension and unconscionable. Who is worse, the sexual predators and pedophiles like Larry Nassar, or those that literally assist and protect the sexual predators so they can continue to rape, violate and severely damage more lives? We all know the answer.

The Jonathan Carey Foundation is also uncovering another scheme of epic proportion in which most individuals that are raping little boys and girls in New York State are getting minuscule sentences or only probation.

Here are two of dozens of examples of sexual predators living in group homes that we have located so far to give you an idea of what is going on in New York State;

A 68 year old male level 3 sex offender with high risk of re-offending getting 3 years probation, his victim was a 13 years old girl.

A 46 year old male level 3 sex offender with high risk of re-offending getting 5 years probation, his victim was a 6 year old girl.

New York State penal law 260.25 says it is a felony crime to endanger the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person, yet the Cuomo administration is ignoring this law.

“A person is guilty of endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree when he knowingly acts in a manner likely to be injurious to the physical, mental or moral welfare of a person who is unable to care for himself or herself because of physical disability, mental disease or defect.

Endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person in the first degree is a class E felony.”

The Jonathan Carey Foundation is bringing these illegal and extremely dangerous matters to the forefront and has located close to 60 sexual predators so far from minimal research to date, only 15% of all NY counties from a partial list of facilities and group homes. Statistically, it appears that the numbers of convicted sex offenders already placed into group homes throughout New York State may be in the hundreds.

All New York State District Attorney’s have been asked by Michael Carey the founder of the Jonathan Carey Foundation to intervene to stop these illegal placements, ensure the removal of all sexual predators from group homes with the disabled and to prosecute the individuals involved in committing these crimes.

The State has acknowledged that they have been placing convicted level 2 and level 3 sex offenders that have a clear and known risk of reoffending to live in group homes. The State of New York is attempting to claim that they can protect disabled residents, which is ludicrous and impossible.

"Group homes are for our most vulnerable people with disabilities, not for convicted sex offenders and known sexual predators." – Michael Carey – Civil Rights & Disability Rights Advocate

Here is what a convicted sexual predator and pedophile said of Governor Andrew Cuomo’s system, it is “a predators dream.”

"The lack of supervision there made it easy to do what I did," DeProspero said in a handwritten affidavit obtained by The Associated Press. "I could have stayed in that house for years and abused him every day without anybody even noticing at all. It was a predator's dream."

http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/new-york-pay-3m-family-boy-molested-group-home-article-1.2977392

Literally, almost all reported cases of sexual assaults and rapes of the disabled are covered-up internally because Governor Cuomo set up an internal hotline to bypass the 911 call systems to keep local police out of the picture. The State of New York gives facilities and group homes all the time and ability to clean up crime scenes and destroy critical evidence of sexual assaults and rapes. Federal authorities have been asked to swiftly intervene.
