A man who was accused of sexually abusing an underage girl last July pleaded not guilty to the allegations, and he has been scheduled to appear in court to fight against the charges on July 16.

Early last summer the mother of a young girl notified the Alabaster Police Department and reported that she believed her daughter, who is between 12 and 16 years old, had been the victim of a sexual assault.

An investigation into the claim was opened and the authorities believe that the suspect responsible for the alleged assault is 35-year-old Alabaster resident Jeremy Douglas Loper. They reportedly discovered evidence of a minor who was subject to solicitation through electronic means, which led to a sexual encounter that took place on June 24 between Loper and the girl.

Richard Dabate, a 40 year old man from Connecticut, was charged with the alleged murder of his wife after the police found electronic evidence which included data from her Fitbit fitness tracker.

In December 2015, Dabate told the police that he left his home to go to work at 8:30 a.m., but then received an alert from his home security system, that the alarm had been activated. Dabate claimed to have emailed his boss from his car to let him know he would be late for work. But, the evidence had indicated that the alarm had not been activated, and that Dabate had actually emailed his boss from his laptop at home. Dabate also allegedly checked the time of his wife’s exercise class from his laptop.

Dabate had told police that he was unable to stop an intruder from shooting and killing his wife after she had returned home from her exercise class. The Fitbit data records, however, told a different story. The data showed Connie Dabate’s movement up until 10:15 a.m. on the day she was killed in December 2015, almost an hour after Richard Dabate claimed she had died. Dabate claimed that he confronted an intruder after he returned to his home around 9 a.m. and that his wife returned home during the confrontation.
