A San Juan Capistrano woman who said she was married to a firefighter started a fundraiser that was claimed to be support for active fire crews has been accused of accepting thousands of dollars in donations that she allegedly intended to keep for herself.

In August, posts on several social media sites containing pictures of a woman and a firefighter that she said was her husband were created in an attempt to ask the public for donations to assist the people working with him to contain the Holy Fire, which burned approximately 23,000 acres in Southern California.

After seeing the request for donations, several local establishments and individuals contributed their offerings to the cause by giving money and goods such as camping equipment, baby wipes, and other helpful items.

A Florida firefighter working with Jacksonville Fire Rescue Department was arrested on Tuesday for exchanging online messages of a sexual nature with a person that he believed was a 14-year-old girl. In actuality, the man had been speaking with an undercover detective impersonating the teenager for over three months.

In an attempt to better protect children from online sexual predators St. John’s County Sheriff’s Office launched “Operation Cruel Summer.” This project involves detectives posing as youth and visiting internet chat sites to engage in conversations with people seeking sexual relations with children.

The detective who purportedly spoke with 53-year-old David Eugene Labelle, the accused, had responded to an ad found online on July 27. Under the heading “Naughty Daughter,” the ad Labelle is accused of posting said, “Hi, how are you doing today? I would like to talk to you and let’s see what we can come up with. I have been looking for my naughty little girl. I am a 53 year old white married man.”

In January 2015, at an Ellis County, Texas firehouse, five volunteer firefighters allegedly held down a new recruit and sodomized him with a sausage while a woman recorded it on her cell phone.

A grand jury indicted the group along with the chief and assistant chief several months later.

The group of firefighters could be heard laughing in the video. The victim, Jason Waldeck, said they allegedly held him down over a couch and assaulted him with a sausage after first trying to use a broomstick. Investigators say he crawled into the bathroom, vomited and took a shower. But, as a final blow, when he returned, the firefighters ripped his towel off and stole his clothes.
