San Mateo County: Come Have Sex With Our Children!

Michael Christopher Bellemur plead "No Contest" to charges relating to having sex on multiple occasions with a 12 year old child (a girl).

I've talked about this case a few times, but sentencing was yesterday. There are so many things wrong with this case I hardly know where to start.

Let's start with the place I read about this: The San Mateo Daily Journal

The writer of the article says things like: "The Burlingame man who had consensual sex multiple times with a 12-year-old girl..."  and "On their first date..." and "the pair proceeded to engage in sexual activity" What the fuck kind of twisted writing is this? a 12 year old does not have consensual sex with anyone, and these were NOT dates. How the hell many times do I have to say it?

Words fail me. I've re-written the next sentence many times, and you'll just have to settle for poorly worded thoughts: Maybe the reporter was trying to maintain a "neutral" or non-biased position in this story, or something similarly ridiculous. Maybe the reporter has never been, or doesn't know anyone who has been sexually battered, bothered, inappropriately leered at, or anything like it... it's the only way I can imagine a reporter choosing these truly inappropriate words to describe the case. It's utterly offensive.

It's sad to think about the mental/emotional struggle that the girl will face as she grows older, and that she'll have this reporter's words to look back on -- words that are essentially ascribing culpability to the poor girl for something really damaging that was done to her. This reporter is simply heaping hurt onto painful hurt. Great job.

Let's talk about the charges and the DA:
On multiple occasions the fucked-up creep had sex with a 12 year old girl. He could have been charged with multiple counts of "lewd and lascivious activity with a child under 14" with special allegations for substantial sexual conduct, resulting in decades of prison time (appropriate, given the facts.) The prosecutors wanted TWO YEARS IN PRISON for the no-contest to "felony unlawful sexual intercourse" plea.

The judge:
The "honorable" Judge Susan Etezadi opted to give him six months with credit for 56 days of time served. He's out and about on his $125K bond though, because the "honorable" judge gave him until the middle of January to keep molesting kids - er - report to the jail. Oh, and he doesn't have to register as a sex offender either. That way, he can keep committing the same offenses against children, and no one will be any the wiser!

Don't worry though, according to the article, Steve Wagstaffe respects Etezadi's decision, although he maintains that he wanted two years (again - What the fuck?).

SO, if you want to fuck kids, and get a minimum of time if you're caught, and aren't friends with the "right" folks, come to San Mateo County! We'll get you back on the street looking for victims in no time!


  1. Under the statuatory rape laws of California, a person under the age of 18 cannot legally "consent" to sex.

    I wrote to the reporter, Michelle Durand, to complain about her story.

    She can be reached

  2. Steve Wagstaff is a waste of space. I am so HAPPY I did not vote for the creep.

    He is WEAK as a DA!

  3. Is this why the San Mateo Journal forum was removed?

    Fair opposition to the decisions made by our elected officials and reporters.

    I agree, Michelle Durand missed the mark on this story.

  4. For those of you who are looking for constructive criticism of the San Mateo DA's office and their mishandling of cases, cronyism,etc, and current lawsuits against them, go to the Atherton Almanac News' Town Forum section.

    I've been impressed with the insight and intelligence from citizens on that site. Also, the editors at the Atherton Almanac keep a sharp eye out for slanderous comments and will immediately remove any unfounded accusations. The comments section is not the free-for-all that the San Mateo Daily Journal Forum was. But the level of discourse is much higher and more productive

  5. Another Dr. Ayres delay clue:

    "Youshock, now 18, yesterday confirmed his Jan. 31 jury trial date on two counts of attempted murder, one count of exploding a destructive device with intent to commit murder, one count of possession of a destructive device in a public place, one count of the use of explosives in an act of terrorism and two counts of possession of a deadly weapon." bombing suspect confirms trial&id=147772

  6. Hey. Check out news of the sentencing of child porn distributor and distinguished architect who got 7 1/2 years this week. Judge said that he was motivated to give the harsher sentence because of a victim's statement.

    Victims who fight back do make a difference.
