Upcoming Lawsuit Against Chuck Rodrick Coming Up Very Soon

Saturday, June 25, 2016

Chuck Rodrick will be in court in four short days. We have not discussed the details or our strategy on this site because that would be just plain dumb. On the other hand Rodrick and his goons have done just the opposite even going as far as violating specific court conditions. As usual they have absolutely no respect for the court system and this has been proven time and time again.

What we will be doing for our viewers is giving you continuous updates as the trial begins. The trial itself should last three days starting on June 28th with a verdict hopefully coming in on Friday June 1st 2016.

We still are looking for victims of Chuck Rodrick and would like it if you would contact us to let us know that you are out there. You can leave a comment in the comment section of this forum or if you feel more comfortable you can reach me via my email at [email protected]

Please stay tuned for our trial coverage beginning June, 28th 2016


Sex Offenders: Recidivism, Re-Entry Policy and Facts


Sex Offenders: Recidivism, Re-Entry Policy and Facts


Sexual predation is back in the national spotlight since Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State defense coordinator who’s accused of sexually assaulting eight boys over 15 years, and two top university officials and has been charged with sexual abuse and covering up the abuse.
It doesn’t take much imagination to understand the horrors and damage caused by criminal offenders. And it’s hard to talk about the facts of any criminal behavior since misinformation is common and ideas contrary to misinformation are quickly associated as soft on crime. The nuances of any criminal behavior are complicated.
Recidivism Statistics
The percentages rearrested (but not necessarily guilty) for the “same category of offense” for which they were most recently in prison for were:
13.4% of released robbers
22.0% of released assaulters
23.4% of released burglars
33.9% of released larcenists
19.0% of released defrauders
41.2% of released drug offenders
2.5% of released rapists
Contrary to popular belief, as a group, sex offenders have the lowest rate of recidivism of all the crime categories. These statistics completely fly in the face of conventional wisdom about sex offenders being the most likely group of criminals to re-offend for their initial crime, but these are the facts. It could be argued that sex offender recidivism isn’t detected and that is why this number is so low, but that could also be said of other crime categories, too.
Independent studies of the effectiveness of in-prison treatment programs for sex offenders have shown that evidence-based programs can reduce recidivism by up to 15 percent. This might not sound like much, but it is. Recidivism can be further reduced up to 30 percent with after prison intervention. However, our current policies make no sense; we release many offenders to the public without some form of post-release supervision. Regardless of the program offered, it is very important to measure the effect the program has on recidivism; just because something is evidence-based, there can’t be an assumption it works in the new location!
Reentry Policy
Post-release supervision helps decrease recidivism since it involves keeping an eye on the ex-offender, but also with assisting the ex-offender to find a job, obtain drug treatment and find housing, all of which are important to staying crime free. On the issue of housing, this is perhaps the biggest challenge facing ex-sex offenders. No one wants them and they have many legal obstacles when finding housing. And they have burnt all their bridges with society and even their family. To help reduce the chances of them re-offending, housing is important for every ex-offender.
Reports released from the Bureau of Justice Statistics show that when sex offenders do recidivate with a sex offense, approximately 75% victimize an acquaintance. The important point of this is that current sex offender residential restrictions often don’t account for this and many other findings.
There are many types of sex offenders, from those who urinate in public to sexual predators and pedophiles. Some are criminally sentenced inmates while others are civil commitments deemed too dangerous to release even though they have served their sentence. There are different grades of sex offenders that include:
  • Level 1 (low risk of repeat offense), or
  • Level 2 (moderate risk of repeat offense), or
  • Level 3 (high risk of repeat offense and a threat to public safety exists).
There are nearly 740,000 registered sex offenders in the United States. Recent research finds that “the data presented here do not support the claim that the public is safer from sex offenders due to community notification laws.”
This is not to suggest that we should not have sex offender registries. What it suggests is that sex offender registries may provide a false sense of security, and so other strategies are necessary. In addition, former sex offenders who do not re-offend find that sex offender registries limit their housing, job and educational opportunities. Right or wrong, some people may feel that former sex offenders deserve on going punishment. But it is important to note that difficulty finding a job or place to live is a risk factor for other types of crime. Adequate housing is very important for sex offenders. Think about it like this — we don’t want sex offenders to be homeless because if they are homeless, we don’t know where they are.
To offer a policy outline on what to do for the various types of sex offenders by the different levels is far beyond the scope of this article. The important thing to note is that housing, jobs and health care are important to decrease recidivism. Also, we can’t make assumptions about what works in public safety based on how we think something is or should be — what works and what doesn’t is sometimes counterintuitive.
In Conclusion
Effective strategies to deal with sex offenders are not based not anecdote, emotion, or case examples of just one; they are based on facts and what we know about the issue. At times we hear about a high profile event; but it is important to remember that high profile events are high profile precisely because they are unusual and unlikely.
Making policy based on high profile events is a surefire way to overreact and make inefficient and, worse, ineffective policy. In short, a high profile event is good time find out where a shortcoming or loophole might reside, but a high profile event is not what policy should be based on. Doing so would result in the majority of cases being marginalized and a strategy designed around an unlikely event.

Arizona Stalking Laws

Tuesday, June 21, 2016


Definition of Stalking: Under Arizona law, stalking is intentionally or knowingly engaging in course of conduct that is directed toward another and causes fear of personal safety or death for that individual or his or her immediate family members.

A “course of conduct” is defined in detail in section 13-2923, but generally it means a repetitive pattern of unwanted, harassing, or threatening behavior committed by one person against another. The threat may be verbal, written, or in some other form, and can be express or implied.

Classification of the Crime: First-time stalking offenses that cause a fear of safety may be classified as a Class 5 felony. Stalking charges that cause a fear of death are a Class 3 felony.

Punishment: Punishment for Class 5 stalking may include probation, up to one year in jail, or a prison sentence ranging from six months to two and a half years. If the defendant has prior felony convictions, he or she could face an additional one to seven and a half years  in prison depending on the number of convictions and other relevant circumstances.

Class 3 stalking is punishable by probation, up to one year in jail, or between two to eight and three quarter years in prison. Again, prior felony convictions could lead to increased prison time ranging from three and a half to twenty-five years. The sentence depends primarily on the criminal record of the defendant and the facts of the case.

Additional criminal charges may be filed against a defendant if there is a protective order prohibiting the defendant from having contact with the victim.

Additional Resources

Any person in a dangerous emergency situation that requires immediate intervention should call 911. Non-emergency help is available from the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 1-800-799-SAFE (7233). FindLaw’s section on Domestic Violence also has resources and information.

Stalking accusations can be very complicated. You should consider contacting local law enforcement if you believe you are the victim of stalking. If you have been accused of stalking or another crime, an experienced criminal defense attorney may be able to assist with your case. Alternately, a local public defender may be able to provide representation if you cannot afford to hire an attorney.

Is Chuck Rodrick Using Bots On FaceBook?

Saturday, June 18, 2016

After finding that their is really no dialogue on Rodricks Facebook page barcomplaints.com and the consistency of the exact same comments leads us to believe that Chuck Rodrick has purchased some fake accounts, possibly many. A majority of the highly offensive hate mongering posts are more then likely coming directly from Rodrick and his crew. We will follow up with what we learn...
