Gene Simmons House Has Warrant Served

Gsimmons1The LAPD Internet Crimes Against Children Taskforce served a warrant against the home of Gene Simmons on Thursday.

The reasons for the warrant issue, was so the taskforce could discuss a possible crime that may have occurred on the property last year while the frontman was on tour for Kiss.

Mike Lopez, Spokesman for the LAPD said that “The family was cooperative, and none of the family members are considered suspects in the case” Lopez also added that the family has been asked to not discuss the case publicly, so it will not compromise the investigation.

However, Simmons’ wife Shannon did share a post on her Facebook page that reads: “OMG this is one crazy day update: all of our iPhones iPads and computers are cleared. Now the real investigation can start !”

Ok, aren’t we a little behind here? If the crime occurred LAST YEAR why are we just now getting around to looking into it? I think better late than never doesn’t apply here…

Caitlyn Jenner Could Face Manslaughter Charge For Malibu Accident

cjenner1Caitlyn Jenner has a 50/50 chance with being charged with Misdemeanor Manslaughter for a traffic accident that occurred just before her gender transformation procedure, while she was known then as Bruce Jenner, Gold Medal Olympic Winner.

Investigators with the LA Sheriff’s Office will turn over their 6 month investigation to the LA County District Attorney’s Office next week, according to Lt. Shaun Mathers.

Because there’s “nothing really egregious” in the case, Det. Richard Curry of the Sheriff’s Dept. said there’s a “50/50” chance that she will be charged.

Usually, the charge if convicted, carries a 1 year county jail sentence.

According to authorities, Kim Howe’s Lexus rear-ended Jessica Steindorff’s Toyota Prius, causing Jenner’s Escalade to rear-end Howe’s car, pushing it into oncoming traffic. A Hummer then struck Howe’s car head-on, causing her to die at the scene near Corral Canyon Road.

Nothing more to add here… Just praying for the family that lost their loved one in the crash.

Jared Fogle Reaches Deal In Child Porn Case

Jfogle1Jared Fogle, former pitchman for Subway restaurants has reached a deal in his Child Pornography case.

The plea deal was filed Wenesday, according to a CNN report filed on their website says that Fogle will plead guilty to possession, and distribution of child porn, and traveling across state lines to have sex with at least 2 teenage girls. Also, the State will recommend a 13 year sentence, with Fogle’s Attorney’s recommending no less than 5. The agreement also says Fogle will adhere to a pornography ban and sexual disorders treatment, and he will have no unsupervised visits with minors, among other requirements. Computer monitoring will be required, too.

Fogle will also pay restitution to the 14 victims that were either secretly photographed, or had encounters with Jared. Each victim will receive 100,000.00 which is intended for counseling, support, and other assistance.

All of this came about during Fogle’s relationship with Russell C. Taylor, the Executive director of The Jared Foundation, who was arrested on Federal Child Pornography charges 2 months ago. Fogle chose to benefit from the information he received from Taylor, instead of turning him in. Fogle obtained a significant amount of material from Taylor, and used it to fuel his own addiction.

Of course, without saying, once the indictment, and plea deal became known, Jared’s wife Katie Fogle released a statement saying she wants out of their marriage.

“Obviously, I am extremely shocked and disappointed by the recent developments involving Jared,” she said in a statement via her attorney. “I am in the process of seeking a dissolution of the marriage. My focus is exclusively on the well-being of my children.”

The family will offer no further comments.

Subway also posted this tweet to it’s Twitter feed:

Subway has no further comments on this as well.

Wow. Just Wow. Jared Fogle, you were a hero, and mentor to MILLIONS of people worldwide. I can’t even fathom what your wife must be going through right now. You are nothing more than a twisted, sick individual.

I hope that Mr. Fogle understands that he’s now a marked man when he walks into prison. God help him… He’s the ONLY one who can now. 

That’s all for this edition. Hopefully the next one will bring a more fun set of stories to enjoy.
