This local story from North Brookfield is pretty insane:
Police say a level 3 sex offender convicted of raping his karate students in 1991 failed to tell them he has been working in a martial arts studio in North Brookfield. David G. Sanderson, 60, of 1037 Williamsville Road, Barre, is due in court June 23 after being arraigned recently on a charge of failing to register as a sex offender. He was released on $2,000 bail, which was posted by his wife.
Police said Mr. Sanderson is required by law to notify them or the state’s Sex Offender Registry Board of changes in his work status but they were never told he was working, nor were they told he was employed in a setting much like the one from which he lured children to his home and on camping trips.
Time out! How can this possibly happen in 2016? You have to get through a million layers of red tape to get anywhere near children, and that’s if you’re squeaky clean. We have teachers who are being forced to get fingerprinted, even though they’ve done nothing wrong, in order to prove they’re not interstate child molesters. But apparently in North Brookfield pedophiles can just open up a dojo and go right back to work.
And what the hell is wrong with this guy’s wife? Hey lady, it’s really nice that you’re giving this guy a second chance and all, but as you know he did some bad things when he was back in day sensei:
Mr. Sanderson in 1991 pleaded guilty in Worcester Superior Court to six counts of child rape, one count of unnatural rape, four counts of indecent assault and battery on a child under the age of 14, one count of indecent assault and battery and 11 counts of furnishing liquor to a person under 21. The victims were male and female and the offenses dated back to 1981. He was sentenced to 20 years in Concord State Prison and would have been eligible for parole after two years.
According to the state Sex Offender Registry Board’s website, he was classified as a level 3 offender; the most likely to re-offend. The site says he committed six counts of rape and abuse of a child, five counts of indecent assault and battery on a person 14 years old or older and one count of rape of a child with force.
So yea, if I were to pick ONE tell tale sign that your husband might be looking to get a little bit old school, I’d say to watch out for him opening up his own karate school again. Ya know, because that was the conduit he used to lure his victims back in the old days.
But wait, it gets better:
In May, police were tipped off by a former police officer to the allegations that Mr. Sanderson was working at Eternal River School on North Main Street in North Brookfield, where he is known as “Grandmaster Doshi” and does not use his legal name, police wrote in a report.
So let me get this straight. In 2016 you can just get a job working with kids and the only name you have to put on your job application is “Grandmaster Doshi?” Sounds like they’re running a pretty tight ship over in North Brookfield. Newsflash – there’s a 99% chance that if you refer to yourself as “grandmaster” anything, then you’re probably a sex pervert.
How come no one figured this out earlier?
In their investigation, police found photographs on social media and on the school’s website that they allege show Mr. Sanderson working at the school. In the photographs it appears he is trying to hide his identity by blocking views of his face, in one instance using a balloon.
Oh I see. He was hiding behind a balloon. Now it makes sense.
But wait, it gets even weirder:
A man who answered the telephone at the Eternal River School on Wednesday and identified himself as the owner, sensei Daniel Larrabee, said he has never employed anyone named David Sanderson.
It’s called the Eternal River School? That’s the shadiest name I’ve ever heard for anything. And somehow this other sensei is getting a free pass? Ummmmm, if you’re the owner of a place that teaches kids karate, shouldn’t you be held responsible if you hire a Level 3 sex offender? This guy just gets to that he doesn’t know anyone named David Sanderson, even though his only employee is a guy named David Sanderson?
Oh right, I forgot. His street name was Grandmaster Doshi. And apparently that was good enough to get a job at the Eternal River School.
When asked if he employed a man known as Grandmaster Doshi, he said he would not answer any questions and hung up the telephone.
Sensei answers to no one.
Basically one of two things happened here. Either this other sensei is in on it and he’s probably into kids too, or David Sanderson is the REAL owner of this karate studio, and he’s using the other guy’s name as a front because legally he’d never be able to open a karate studio for kids. Ya know, because he diddled kids at a karate studio back in the 80’s.
Anyway, it’s just nuts that this could happen in this day and age. Back in the day kids used to get molested and raped until the cows came home because the Jerry Sandusky’s of the world could just say they were horsing around together. But now we’re supposed to be on the lookout for stuff like this.
The guy is obviously a huge asshole too. I understand that he needs to move on with his life and he needs to get a job. And I also get that this probably isn’t easy if you’re a convicted level 3 sex offender. But he could’ve tried to get a job doing ANYTHING, and he chose to purposely lie and manipulate his way back into the very same position he was in when he was raping kids. Guess serving 2 years on a 20 year sentence didn’t teach him much at all.
Obviously he was planning on reoffending, and luckily it got shut down before anyone got hurt. Just makes you wonder when you sign your kids up for anything, who the adults are that you’re leaving them with. This is when the government can actually do something good for once – step up to the plate and pass common sense legislation to make sure loopholes like this can’t be exploited by child molesters.
