REPEAT CHILD SEX OFFENDER BUSTED
Jeffrey Thomas Clark, 32, of 6227 Sampras Ace Court in Spring has found himself behind bars again, this time without a bond. Last week Captain Mark Seals was alerted to someone attempting to pick up children on a social website. He went to work immediately and located that ad. He then contacted the male who is identified as Clark. After identifying himself as a 16-year-old Clark kept up a sexual explicit conversation. In addition he sent nude photos to what he thought to be a 16-year-old female. He also offered to meet the would be 16-year-old. He didn’t show up for the meeting.

On Friday afternoon a warrant was issued for Clark and with the help of Harris County Precinct 4 Constables Office and Gulf Coast Violent Offender Task Force the warrant was executed on Clarks home. At the time nobody was home and detectives spent the weekend waiting for him. He did not appear.

Monday afternoon Seals was contacted by a family member who agreed to turn Clark over to the Captain. A meeting was arranged at Greenspoint Mall and Clark was taken into custody without incident.

Clark made the news just months ago after a three year investigation by the Harris County Precinct 4 Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force which also included the United States Air Force Office of Special Investigations, the FBI, the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, West Yorkshire Police and the United Kingdom Child Exploitation and Online Protection Center.

In that investigation a woman contacted Harris County Precinct 4 after she chatted

with Clark online in a chat room. She said Clark had asked her if she had any children, then when she confirmed that she did, Clark told her he was sexually attracted to girls as young as six years of age. Clark then told the woman he wanted the girl to perform a lewd act on him while the adult woman watched.

She ceased communications with him but he continued to email her giving her his personal information and wanting to meet. This information was given to the Constables Office. They set up a meeting at a park directly behind the constable’s Office and when Clark was spotted waiting on the woman and her daughter, he was arrested. He was charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault of a Child under age 14.

After seizing Clark’s computer, forensic investigators found pornographic images of child sexual assaults on the hard drive, in addition to chat logs.

In the chat logs, investigators found many different online profiles of people who identified themselves as sexually attracted to children. Investigators with Harris County Constable Precinct Four contacted the Internet Crimes Against Children Task Forces and the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children in an effort to identify, and if possible, arrest the offenders for violations of child pornography, and rescue any child victims.

In that case several other arrests were made.

Freddie Sizemore, 38, a civilian employee at the U.S. Army-operated Ronald Reagan Missile Defense Test Site in the South Pacific was arrested and charged in U.S. District Court in Hawaii, and he pleaded guilty in March 2013. He was sentenced to seven years in prison and must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

John Hardcastle, 52, who served as the headmaster of a high school in the British town of Leeds.

Patrick Daniel Quinsland, 26, an airman with the U.S. Air Force, based out of Wright Patterson AFB in Ohio, was charged with possessing child pornography and court martialed as a result of the investigation. His rank was reduced to the lowest enlisted grade and he was dishonorably discharged. He was also sentenced to 2.5 years in military prison. He will be subject to civilian sex offender registration requirements.

After all the efforts of all the agencies Harris County District Judge Kevin Fine of the 177th District Court sentenced Clark to 10-years deferred probation on both a sexual assault of a child and possession of child pornography. Fine resigned from the bench in 2012. Fine who was a recovering cocaine addict won the bench position using that as his experience for addiction. He also triggered a controversy in 2010 when he declared the death penalty unconstitutional during a hearing.
