Please Help Find Ashley Howley

Lilo writes.....

"Next month will mark two full years that Ashley has been gone, lost to those that loved her, her family, her friends. And although her case has been long forgotten by the media... it has not been forgotten by those that knew her best. And, they are desperate to share her story... and hopefully move someone enough to provide the information needed to bring her home."

Masha Allen Speaks to Congress

Young People Subjected to Sexual Predators
Tonight, live from the nation's capital, taking the fight against on line sex predators all the way to the steps of Congress. Tonight, lawmakers who can help us crack down on child predators -- they hear our voices. And tonight, we hear exclusively from Masha, Masha Allen, a little girl who went before Congress today to share her heartbreaking story with them. You may remember Masha, the Disney girl, adopted age 5 from a Russian orphanage to an American pedophile. Then photos taken of her at a Disneyworld hotel bedroom led cops straight to her doorstep and to a virtual clearinghouse of child porn sold and traded on line for years to come. Tonight, from the capital, seeking justice and change -- will you help us?

Good evening, everybody. I'm Nancy Grace. I want to thank you for being with us tonight. Tonight, live from D.C., where Congress gets an earful today on the spreading evil of Internet child sex predators. Tonight, victims speak as one united voice, a voice to lawmakers on the urgent need to enforce laws and pass tough new ones to protect our children. Transcript of Nancy Grace on Capital Hill-May 3, 2006

Nancy said: "There was never a follow-up home study, nothing to see how the child was doing. In fact, I learned today at Congress that the Humane Society does more follow-up when dogs are adopted than children. "

REP. PHIL GINGREY (R), GEORGIA: "Well, Nancy, this bill that we introduced I think is just a start. And as horrific as Masha's case is -- and we all heard it today when she gave that great, brave testimony -- it's really just the tip of the iceberg."

PARRY AFTAB, CYBERSPACE ATTORNEY: "I run the world's largest Internet safety and help group. We are all unpaid volunteers. You can register online, volunteer online. It is a war out there. We've got a new program we're going start called Cyber Strike Force. And on June 20th, in Westchester County, New York, we're holding a summit, bringing all of the big social networks together, to see if we can solve this problem from the inside, too."

Polygraphs for Sex Offenders-Court Upholds

Court Upholds Polygraph for Sex Offenders
NEW YORK -- A federal appeals court ruled that lie detector tests can be used to ensure convicted sex offenders are obeying the rules of their probation and that a ban on Internet use is appropriate for some offenders.
The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling pertained to Jeffrey A. Johnson, an aerospace engineer and sophisticated computer user who, the court said, had used the Internet to conduct sexually explicit conversations with children from 1995 to 1997. Washington Post-Full Story
