“This is the worst case of abuse and torture seen in Canada,” said Justice John McMahon, adding the “almost unspeakable” acts performed showed “a human nature of such depravity it is beyond conscience.”

The 32-year-old woman, who cannot be named to due a publication ban that protects her husband, pleaded guilty in January 2012 to aggravated assault, sexual assault causing bodily harm and failing to provide the necessities of life.

She watched her lover and the father of her child, John Michael Siscoe, beat her husband with a broom handle until it broke, cut him with razor blades and pour lighter fluid — or sometimes hairspray or aftershave — over parts of his body and set it alight, according to the agreed statement of facts.

Loophole In California Law Lets Sex Offenders Become Addiction Counselors

California state capitol

Now this is some excellent investigative reporting. Hats off to the reporters! Now this probably won’t come as a shock to those of us advocating safety regulations in 12 step meetings.  I wonder what the state of California has to say about the fact that sexual predators are allowed to be AA sponsors and NA sponsors for people of all ages, including teens?
Many 12 steppers go on to become addiction counselors to make a living, or set up halfway houses to make a buck and exploit the system and the addicts. This is just outrageous that sex offenders can be addiction counselors or AA Sponsors to teens.

Stop sexual abuse by sexual psychopaths turned counselors and sex predators turned sponsors!

 “Sexual psychopath.” That was the diagnosis a court-ordered psychiatrist gave Donald Robert Hoffman after he was convicted of molesting a 13-year-old boy in 1965. Hoffman, the psychiatrist determined, was a danger to others.

But that history didn’t stop Hoffman from becoming a state-registered drug and alcohol counselor decades later, even though he had to register as a sex offender once he was released from prison in 1979.

Hoffman lost his counselor status only after three residents of the San Francisco rehab center where he worked told investigators in 2008 that Hoffman had plied them with drugs and alcohol and made aggressive sexual advances. Hoffman was fired, but was never charged over those allegations. He died two years later at 67. Continue reading
