Sexual Predators are Thriving In Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous Meetings

The hands of AA are there.

Do Sexual Predators Thrive in Alcoholics Anonymous? YES!

When I got sober at 17, AA welcomed me with open arms. I didn’t know back then that some of them were dangerous.

By Lily Weinstein

The good news is, you can be anything you want to be in AA. A writer, a flamenco dancer, a bank robber. I’ve met sober drug dealers and sober Oscar-winners. We’re nothing if not diverse, and to my mind, that’s one of the greatest blessings of the program. There’s a richness and breadth of experience in the rooms that’s unlike any other place I’ve been.

The bad news is, you can also be a sexual predator. Volusia County Drug Court.

I got sober at 17. For all of my drinking and drugging, I was still pretty naive. I had never had a boyfriend, I was a virgin, and I’d maybe kissed three boys ever. I was still a kid in all the important ways, except for the fact that I was a blackout drinker.

I thought young people’s meetings would be a safe place to clean myself up, but it turns out, not so much. Without knowing it, I was becoming a target.

I wish someone had told me, “Just because a guy has long-term sobriety doesn’t mean he isn’t going to take advantage of you.”

The young people’s meetings I went to all over Los Angeles featured a revolving cast of men that I would call perverts. They weren’t the obvious kind of creeps, either, with windowless white vans and long trench coats. They looked like everyone else at the meetings: tattooed and cool and smoking cigarettes.

These men swarmed me, as they did every other newcomer too young and inexperienced to distinguish between the loving hand of AA and the clammy hand of a predator. They welcomed me to the meetings, they gave me over-long hugs, they offered me smokes when I was still too young to buy my own. I felt absolutely enveloped by the program. I had never had so many people pay attention to me in my life.

But what I thought of as harmless flirting—and all flirting is harmless when you’re 17 and your curfew is 10 pm—these men rightly interpreted as vulnerability.

There was J, who asked me to his house to “read the Big Book.” When I arrived and asked what we were going to read, he laughed and showed me to his bedroom. I let him kiss me and grope me because I didn’t know I was allowed to say no. He was a grown-up; I was a kid. He’d been sober 15 years; I’d been sober a few months. He was in his 30s; I was 17. My parents had taught me to respect adults, and that’s what I thought I was doing. It can’t be wrong or immoral if J is doing it, I thought; he has a million sponsees and he’s a grown-up. NA Daytona Area Meetings refuse to pay rent to for Holly Hill Meetings.

There was C, who was 36 and also had double-digit sobriety. He had a daughter a few years younger than me. It’s strange to look back and call it rape—because I’ve been assaulted under much less ambiguous circumstances—but that’s absolutely what it was.

Part of what was so pernicious about these experiences was that no one was pointing a gun to my head. At the time, I felt like I was just doing the AA things that everyone talked about: having fun, blowing off steam, and enjoying that we-made-it-off-the-Titanic camaraderie. I didn’t know enough to be terrified when C told me to call him Daddy.

The problem, in my opinion, is systemic. AA is designed for adults, for people who have years of hard-won knowledge behind them, adults who do things like smoke, gamble, get tattoos and have sex. Yay for adulthood! All that stuff is fun.

But what happens when you throw teenagers into the mix—teenagers who, for all their posturing and pretension, are still children, albeit with grown-up bodies? We’re like fish in a barrel. Holly Hill AA and NA Meetings in Parks.

One of the seminal moments in my sobriety happened when I was about 19. I was at a meeting—one of the biggest in LA—with my best girlfriend. The speaker that night was a handsome guy in his early 40s. He was charming and funny: think George Clooney with tattoos and a former heroin habit. He was about five minutes into his pitch when he casually announced that he used to rape women.

My best friend and I locked eyes—both of us had been sexually assaulted and just hearing the word rape was enough to raise the hairs on our arms. We were dumbfounded that this man was coolly admitting that part of his alcoholic “bottom” was forcing women to have sex with him. For him, raping women was just another part of “what happened.”

It wasn’t his confession alone that was so disturbing, though. It was the room’s reaction—non-reaction, actually. No one stormed out of the meeting. No one threw rotten fruit. I don’t even remember seeing anyone else look uncomfortable.

The message I got that night was deafening: AA will accept you no matter what you did in your drinking days. You can even be a confessed rapist. Continue reading

Sex Offender Arrested For Going To Church with Sunday School and Daycare on Premises


Sex offender arrested for attending church that had Daycare and Sunday School on the premises. How often does this happen across this country in all our churches with mandated sex predators attending NA meetings and AA meeting in the church basements? Does the Pastors of these churches even realize that AA is bringing sex predators and violent felons to their churches? Does their insurance policies cover ‘sexual molestation’  for the 12 step meetings? What about the AA’s groups insurance policy-is the church named in the policy? How much coverage is it, and does it cover abuse and molestation? Important questions churches need to be asking themselves. Not to mention they are allowing the pagan religion of AA to worship in Christian Churches.

Level 3 Sexual Predator Mandated to Alcoholics and Narcotics Anonymous Meetings

This man is a violent level 3 sexual predator mandated to attend Stearns County Minnesota Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous and have a sponsor. He must also participate in Domestic Violence Court. Is Judge Davick Halfen concerned at all that minors attend AA/NA meetings too !? He should be, as many courts mandate juveniles to 12 step programs with the blessings of GSO AA and NA World Services. When are the people that are in a position to protect minors going to start doing their JOB?!

Judge: Davick-Halfen.

State Farm No Longer Insuring Churches In Florida

Insurance provider State Farm shows concerns over churches in the state of Florida and dropped them. To insure churches they want to see safety guidelines in place in regard to children, if they want to obtain ” abuse and molestation” coverage. I wonder if the insurance companies that insure Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous realize that courts are mandating level 3 sex offenders, and violent felons to 12 step programs? Many of them located in the very basements of the churches they insure. I also wonder if the insurance companies have any idea that felons are sponsoring minors in AA/NA ? AA/NA provide no background checks unless they are going into a prison. So lets see, in prison there is very high security to protect inmates and juveniles. To sponsor a minor on the outside of detention centers AA has no such requirements. Are the insurance companies taking this into account when they are insuring these high risk 12 step groups? It would be nice if they put requirements on AA like they are doing with the churches. This is what changed the churches policies on dealing with sexual predator behavior in their congregations. To get insurance they HAD to start dealing with it to some extent. Of course they are dealing with hundreds of claims annually through protestant churches alone. They would probably would have thousands more without the changes. As we know in AA, many sexual assaults go unreported because of the principles of maintaining anonymity. Of course their lawsuits dealing with AA are swept under the rug.

Matt Carlucci, with the Jacksonville, Florida-based Brightway Insurance Agency, said churches pose a number of special risks, especially those that operate day care centers and schools.

To obtain so-called “abuse and molestation” coverage, churches must show they perform background checks on employees and volunteers. Additionally, insurers may require that the schools and day care centers have in place rules such as not allowing males employees to be alone with a child and maintaining a certain ratio of teachers to students.

“To get coverage, the churches are going to have to prove they have those procedures in place,” said Carlucci.

Retired Catholic Priest Charged In Holly Hill Sex Sting At Ross Point Park

 Holly Hill undercover police nabs 6 men in sex sting,including Paige A.Blakely a retired Catholic Priest! He told police that this was not an uncommon event for him as he goes “cruising” to meet up with men. This has been a problem in Holly Hill Parks for many years. Even though local citizens and businesses have complained to Holly Hill PD about activity at Sunrise Park for years,the department has done little to stop the crime there. Daytona Beach Narcotics Anonymous members even thwarted efforts by the community by removing Security Camera Signs! It seems they felt it might deter their court mandated felons and other criminals from coming to their Park meetings.How incredibly selfish is that? The police and AA/NA know that level 3 sex offenders and violent criminals are mandated to AA Daytona and NA Daytona thoughout Volusia County and the United States. Holly Hill PD has been notified that Sunrise Park is listed online as a “cruising area” for years. They are also aware of sex crimes at Sunrise Park, Holly Land Park and Centennial Park for a very long time.

The Diocese of Orlando released a statement stating Blakely had contacted Bishop John Noonan and informed him that he had “received a summons from the Holly Hill Police Department for a misdemeanor allegation regarding indecent exposure.” The diocese said the bishop barred Blakely from acting o functioning as a priest, pending the legal outcome of the criminal case against him.

Bernard Henry Cowart, 52, of Holly Hill, exposure of sexual organs and resisting arrest without violence;

Pope Benedict XVI speaking of child sex abuse is not exclusive to the Catholic Church. All institutions need to address the problem with’exacting standards’.This would also include Corporate Alcoholics Anonymous and Corporate Narcotics Anonymous that has been known for sexual abuse by their members, yet they cover it up and actually encourage minors to attend meetings alongside sexual offenders.

This would include threats of violence,assault,harassment,foul language and littering by Daytona AA/NA members.Many other crimes such as car break-ins,drug dealing,vandalism and sexual assault have occurred in the park since the removal of multiple security signs.  Even with crime going up in Holly Hill, and NA Daytona membership growing by leaps and bounds because of court mandating criminals to AA/NA, Serenity By The Sea NA ,The Next Step and More Will Be Revealed Groups interfered with efforts to keep people safer in Sunrise Park. Consider these recent stats-crime up 20.1% in Holly Hill,yet Daytona was actually down -11.5%,the State of Florida was down -2%,Volusia County was flat compared to last year! Now Serenity by the Sea has spread to other parks/playgrounds! Keep in mind that no one is accountable in these groups.Literally,no one is in charge.

AA Is a Public Nuisance Declares Attorney That Files Lawsuit In Washington State Against AA and Church

Here is yet another example of AA/NA groups being a public nuisance! This is a growing nationwide problem. The churches need to be held accountable as well as they are renting to groups without the proper zoning permits and are puttting their congregation in danger.

This is the Fort Sherman Chapel Group,District Area 92AA located in Washington State causing numerous problems for the neighborhood.

Attorney goes after AA group

A Fortgrounds attorney wants Alcoholics Anonymous to keep it down.

Out of frustration with a local AA group’s raucous gatherings, Edward W. Kok has filed legal action against the Washington State District Area 92 AA, Fort Sherman Chapel Group and unnamed AA members.

Kok (pronounced like Coke), who lives on Forest Drive, says his quality of life has been thwarted by the hubbub of AA meetings across the street at Fort Sherman Chapel.

“The actions of the defendants are offensive to the senses, are an obstruction to the free use of plaintiff’s property, so as to interfere with the comfortable enjoyment of life and property,” Kok wrote in a legal complaint filed in district court on Sept. 8.

Kok is representing himself.

The 53-year-old alleges that members of the group – who meet at the chapel every day at 8 a.m. and also Mondays at 5 p.m. – converse loudly before and after meetings.

“…The sound is as though the AA members are meeting in the plaintiff’s front yard,” the legal complaint reads.

Sometimes loud motors and conversation starts long before 7 a.m. and goes as late as 9 p.m., the document reads. Individuals’ cars have also blocked spaces for residents in the area.

It’s a public nuisance, according to Kok.

He also alleges that the group’s meetings are unlawful, as the gatherings take place without a special use permit required for religious organization or community meetings.

That means the Museum of North Idaho is at fault, as well, Kok reports, as the nonprofit corporation owns and operates the Fort Sherman Chapel.

“The defendant museum and perhaps AA as well knew or should have known” about the group’s use of the structure for years, the legal complaint states.

Efforts to find an individual claiming authority for the AA group have been futile, Kok wrote in his complaint.

As he hasn’t been able to track down members, his legal action labels those defendants as John and Jane Does 1-100.

Kok is requesting a judge to enjoin the museum from allowing AA further use of the chapel.

He is also asking for $7,500 in attorney’s fees, though he wouldn’t say if he plans to bring another attorney on board.

“I’m committed to seeing this through to some satisfactory solution,” Kok said on Wednesday.

Individual members of the chapel AA group either couldn’t be reached, or preferred to retain anonymity and not be quoted.


Homeowners have had to contend with AA and NA members urinating and littering on their lawns as well as profanity and other abusive language aimed at passersbys!

Members are often transient,attending to fulfill parole obligations. “It has become an unbearable situation” says one local resident.

Crown breaks down describing rape victim’s devastation

By: Mike McIntyre

Posted: 03/30/2010 1:00 AM

A Manitoba Crown attorney wept Monday as she described how a rape victim has been devastated by the attack.

Jocelyn Ritchot had to pause several times as she struggled to read a statement on behalf of the woman, whose 46-year-old former boyfriend pleaded guilty to several charges. He was sentenced to three years in prison in addition to 18 months of time already served. His name isn’t being published to protect the identity of the victim.

“I trusted you. I cared for you. I only wanted the best for you. Why, why, why?” the woman wrote. “Emotionally I felt dirty, used, guilty that somehow I allowed it to happen, and very degraded. I feel like my soul has been robbed.”

The victim — who wasn’t present for the sentencing hearing — began dating the man after they met at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting in 2007, court was told. They ended their romance in July 2008 but continued to be friends. However, everything changed when the woman went to his Beausejour-area home in September 2008 and found him intoxicated.

“I wanted to help him. I felt sorry for him. Then it became a nightmare,” she wrote.

The man put duct tape over her face, bound her hands and legs together and then sodomized her. He also demanded she call her 18-year-old daughter to come over so he could sexually assault her while she watched. She was repeatedly beaten when she refused. The man also threatened to hit her with a lead pipe.

“No mother should ever be put in that position,” Ritchot told court. “He had no regard for the feelings or personal integrity of the victim.”
