Those Who View Child Pornography Will be Fined and Arested Under Masha’s Law

LAS VEGAS, Nevada, (August 30, 2013) – Masha Allen was only five years old when she was adopted from a Russian orphanage by a millionaire from the Pittsburgh area named Matthew Mancuso. Mancuso made hundreds of pornographic and explicit images of Masha and is currently in jail along with 13 other men who had viewed these images. As a result of this horrific and devastating incident, “Masha’s Law,” named after Masha Allen, was passed by congress in 2006.

Under this law, anyone found to have viewed these images of Masha or any other child will be added to a list and fined and arrested. As a result, several class-action lawsuits have emerged from victims of child pornography, many of them now teens or adults. Each time an image is viewed online by suspects, it can be traced. The suspect can then be added to a growing and long list of offenders.

Suspects can now have assets seized and put in jail for several years. According to authorities, many of the suspects are seemingly upstanding members of society including teachers, police, fire fighters as well as educated and wealthy men. The FBI continues to track down these predators and bring them to justice.

“Every resource and intelligence available to law enforcement should be directed at finding and putting away child predators and child pornographers. It is the vilest and most offending aspect of society that must be eradicated with the harshest of consequences,” states personal injury attorney West Seegmiller. Mr. Seegmiller has been practicing personal injury, wrongful death, and employment law for over 32 years.

SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA: Security Guard Victor Bailey Fired After He Helped Sexual Assault Victim

Friday, August 30th, 2013

Security Guard Fired After Speaking with Media About His Heroic Deed

Security Guard Victor Bailey Helped Homeless Woman; Violated Company Policy as he Spoke to Media

SAN DIEGO, California (August 30, 2013)- A female victim of sexual assault was lured into a man’s vehicle and then he tried to rape her. Victor Bailey, a shelter security guard at an East Village homeless shelter, was able to console and help the woman. Bailey called 911 for her. Later, Baily agreed to be interviewed by 10News where he shared his story and feelings about the incident. Baily told reporters that crimes against the homeless, especially women are all too common and the public needs more awareness.

A day after the interview, Baily was chastised for having spoken with the media, and he was even fired from his job as a security guard. He was informed that he had violated a policy in which shelter employees cannot talk to the media without approval. Bailey was not aware of this policy, he states he was fired two weeks after he was reprimanded. Bailey was also very recently diagnosed with prostate cancer. He had a solid record of being on-time for his job, and not missing work.

“There may be something occurring here that had less to do with Bailey’s interview and more to do with the fact that he was recently diagnosed with a terminal illness. It may have been in the interests of the homeless shelter to let him go based on this fact”, states attorney West Seegmiller. “Mr. Bailey’s rights may have been violated as he may have been discriminated against due to his health status.”

Bob McElroy, president of The Alpha Project, which runs the winter homeless shelter that employed Bailey assured the media that Bailey’s termination was only the result of his media interview.

Two riders killed in separate crashes in Las Vegas, Nevada

LAS VEGAS, NEVADA: Metro police are busy investigating two separate fatal motorcycle accidents that occurred yesterday in which both motorcyclists were pronounced dead.

The first accident occurred at Tropicana Avenue and Paradise Road at about 5p.m. as a motorcyclist was weaving through traffic at high speed. The motorcyclist then hit two cars that were stopped at the intersection red light. This caused the motorcyclist to be ejected from his bike. The drivers of the two other vehicles were apparently not injured.  The motorcyclist however later dies at Sunrise Hospital.

The second accident occurred at West Charleston Boulevard and South Durango Drive at about 2 p.m.. The “motorcyclist” was actually riding a scooter. He entered the intersection of Charleston and Durango when suddenly a Kia Sorrento abruptly turned in front of his scooter. The scooter driver was ejected and sustained injuries which were fatal and later died at University Medical Center.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office has yet to release the names of the victims pending family notification.

LAS VEGAS: Motorcyclist Dies in Collision at Charleston Boulevard and Durango Drive

Wednesday, August 28th, 2013

LAS VEGAS, Nevada (August 28,2013) – A motorcyclist was killed yesterday after colliding with a vehicle at the intersection of  Charleston Boulevard and Durango Drive in Las Vegas, according to Metro Police. At about 1:50 p.m. Metro Police and emergency medical personnel were called to the accident site where the motorcyclist was immediately taken to UMC where he succumbed to his injuries and died, according to Laura Meltzer, the Metro spokeswoman. The accident closed the intersection for several hours while an investigation was commenced. The intersection has since re-opened, states a regional transportation commission alert.

“Motorcyclists are always the most vulnerable driver’s on the road. They do not have the protection offered by a standard car, and they often weave in and out of traffic, although this is legal, it can prove highly dangerous. Motorcyclists are a special sector of motorists when dealing with collisions and personal injury,” states attorney West Seegmiller. Mr. Seegmiller owns the Seegmiller Law Firm and has been practicing personal injury law in Las Vegas and California for over 33 years.
