Massachusetts Woman Sentenced for Traveling to WV to Have Sex with a Minor from Linn Area

The Gilmer Free Press

CARISSA HADS, age 25, of Quincy, Massachusetts, was sentenced on January 29, 2013, in United States District Court in Clarksburg by Judge Irene M. Keeley.

HADS was sentenced to 87 months imprisonment to be followed by lifetime supervision.

HADS entered a plea of guilty on October 10, 2012, to “Traveling in Interstate Commerce with the Intent to Engage in Illicit Sexual Conduct” on February 23, 2012, when HADS traveled from Massachusetts to North Central West Virginia to have sex with a minor from Linn, WV.

Court documents indicate that HADS posed as an 18-year old man on a social media website and also took steps to change her appearance in order to deceive the victim as to her true identity.

HADS met the alleged victim online in 2010 and the two communicated for over a year before the first in-person meeting took place.

HADS traveled at least three times from Massachusetts to visit the alleged victim, and was arrested at the Pittsburgh International Airport by F.B.I. agents on May 25, 2012, on one of her visits to the area.

As part of her plea, HADS agreed to the forfeiture of the computer and electronic equipment seized from her and her residence.

HADS was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal pending designation to a
Federal institution.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Shawn A. Morgan, Chief of the Criminal Division for the U.S. Attorney’s Office and investigated by the West Virginia Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

G-Vine™: Heard It Through G-Vine – 12.31.12

image

Community talk heard through the G-Vine:


•  Is it true about the new school they want to build in the Linn area that they want natural gas and Garretts refusing to give them a right away so they might have to re-design everything and make the school all electric?


•  Was the site for the new school in Linn nothing but a swamp area and could this cause a lot of problems?


•  THE FINANCIAL STATEMENTS AT THE MICKEY METZ’S SHERIFF OFFICE WERE DUE TO BE IN THE PAPER BY SEPTEMBER 30TH.  STILL NOT OUT! WHY?


•  There is chatter about recent alleged sexual misconduct at the GCHS involving staff and students. Do you know if there is anything to it?


•  Since Mickey Metz is leaving the office there should be a settlement report due December 31, 2012. Should it not?


•  Commissioners Kennedy and Ramsey have failed to report the financial crisis and missing funds under Sheriff Metz’s role as the county treasurer? Why?


•  The last day of school before Christmas, an english teacher at GCHS caught students in the back of her classroom using marijuana and reported them to the principal. What is the deal with that?


•  It is horrible that examples of alleged misconduct at GCHS go unreported.  That failure is enabling the individuals who could care the least about decency. What it will take is a parent or another individual in the know to rise up to file a formal complaint about the sexual misconducts at school. Have any complaints been filed? If administrators know about problems and they fail to act it is my belief that they could be held accountable similar to what happened at Penn State.

»  The firearm antlered deer bag limit during the two-week buck season is two (one on the base license and one on an RG [resident] or RRG [nonresident] stamp). A hunter may take no more than three antlered deer per calendar year in all archery and firearms seasons combined.

»  The last day to purchase an additional buck deer gun tag (Class RG/RRG Stamp) was November 18, 2012. Class RG and Class RRG additional buck stamps can only be used to take an additional antlered deer in firearm buck season. Unused Class RG and Class RRG stamps may not be used in antlerless or muzzleloader seasons.

»  There are 10 counties or portions thereof (see the 2012 – 2013 Hunting and Trapping Regulations Summary) that require buck firearms hunters to take an antlerless deer during the antlerless firearms deer season (with Class N permit for residents or Class NN permit for nonresidents) prior to harvesting a second antlered deer during the buck firearms season.

»  All private and public lands in counties having a firearms antlerless deer gun season (Class N for residents and Class NN for nonresidents) will be open November 19 – December 01, 2012 (concurrent with the buck gun season), December 13 - 15, and December 28 – 31, 2012. Bag limits vary among counties but will be either one or three antlerless deer.

»  All deer must be field tagged and checked in within 72 hours of the time of kill or within 24 hours of the close of the season, whichever comes first. Additional deer may not be taken until all previously taken deer have been checked. Only one deer may be taken per day during the buck season.

»  Deer hunters spend an estimated $230 million in West Virginia, much of it in the rural areas of the state that depend upon the deer seasons for a large portion of their annual income.

»  In 2011, deer hunters in West Virginia harvested 60,157 bucks during the two-week buck season, an increase of 38 percent from the 2010 harvest. This is two percent less than the five-year average harvest of 61,428 and ranks 24th among all past years.

»  WVDNR forecasts that the buck harvest should be slightly higher for 2012. All regions should see a similar-to-higher harvest this year. The increased reproduction of 2011 and the mild winter of 2011-2012 should mean that there are plenty of 1.5-year-old animals for hunters. The overall mast conditions should be favorable. In addition, DNR has been conducting spotlight counts in many counties and have observed many large-racked animals for hunters to pursue.

»  Sunday hunting is legal in the following 14 counties on private land only: Boone, Brooke, Clay, Hancock, Jefferson, Lincoln, Logan, McDowell, Marshall, Mingo, Ohio, Wayne, Wetzel and Wyoming. The only Sunday that is open in these counties during the buck season is November 25, 2012. Hunters are reminded that deer gun seasons are closed in Logan, Mingo, McDowell and Wyoming counties.

»  Hunters are required to wear at least 400 square inches of blaze orange (about the size of a vest) as an outer garment for visibility and safety. Blaze orange camouflage patterns are legal as long as 400 square inches of blaze orange are displayed on the garment. A blaze orange hat is not required, but the hunter must have blaze orange visible from both the front and the back.
