A father was horrified to find a pervert hiding in his closet after coming over to the house to have sex with his 12-year-old daughter.

The unidentified dad said he found 42-year-old Christopher Todd Leonard (pictured above) shirtless in the closet of his Texas home on November 2, 2018, while getting ready for work around 5.30am.

Leonard, who was not aggressive, told the father that the girl invited him over to their home. He claimed he thought the girl was 21. But the girl said the man was aware of her real age.

According to KPRC, Leonard said he had been talking to the girl through Facebook and Instagram.

The 12-year-old told authorities that she had met Leonard while using public transportation a few weeks prior to the incident. She said he gave her his phone number and they contacted each other through texts and phone calls.

When authorities looked through Leonard’s phone, they also found sexually explicit messages that he had sent to the girl.

The girl’s father told KPRC: “The man literally brainwashed her.

“Knowing this guy could have done something to my daughter and then knowing that I had another daughter that he could have done something to, it really affected me, and my family as well.”

Police has issued a warrant for Leonard’s arrest. He has been charged with online solicitation of a minor.

Kim Kardashian West reveals she’s studying to become a Lawyer, plans on taking the Bar exam in 2022

Kim Kardashian West, who is Vogue’s May cover star has dropped a major life announcement by revealing she’s studying to become a Lawyer.

She’s currently doing a four-year apprenticeship with a San Francisco law firm and hopes to take the bar exam in 2022.

The mother of three, who has been working with author and CNN commentator Van Jones and attorney Jessica Jackson, cofounders of #cut50, a national bipartisan advocacy group on criminal-justice reform revealed this during her cover interview for this month’s Vogue.

“I had to think long and hard about this,” she said. The choice came from the combination of “seeing a really good result” with Alice Marie Johnson while simultaneously feeling like she couldn’t help enough. “The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency, and I’m sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, shit. I need to know more.

“I would say what I had to say, about the human side and why this is so unfair. But I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case. It’s never one person who gets things done; it’s always a collective of people and I’ve always known my role, but I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society. I just felt like the system could be so different, and I wanted to fight to fix it, and if I knew more, I could do more.”

Kim’s decision was inspired by her work helping to free Alice Marie Johnson last year after President Donald Trump commuted her life sentence.

“The White House called me to advise to help change the system of clemency, and I’m sitting in the Roosevelt Room with, like, a judge who had sentenced criminals and a lot of really powerful people and I just sat there, like, Oh, shit. I need to know more,” she told Vogue. “I would say what I had to say, about the human side and why this is so unfair. But I had attorneys with me who could back that up with all the facts of the case. It’s never one person who gets things done; it’s always a collective of people, and I’ve always known my role, but I just felt like I wanted to be able to fight for people who have paid their dues to society.

Beware of loans from China – IMF warns Nigeria and other developing countries

53F73D83-4945-4F6E-874F-F041824609BA

The International Monetary Fund has cautioned Nigeria and other developing countries from taking loans from China due to unfavourable loan conditions.

 

The Financial Counsellor and Director of the Monetary and Capital Markets Department of the IMF, Tobias Adrian, said this on Wednesday during the launch of the Global Financial Stability Report for April 2019 at the IMF/World Bank meetings in Washington D.C.

“Capital flows, which includes capital flows from China, are, of course, important for development. On the other hand, what is very important in lending arrangements are the terms of the loans and we urge countries to make sure that when they borrow from abroad, the terms are favourable. In particular, we recommend that loans to countries should conform with Paris Club arrangements and that is not always the case of loans from China,” Adrian said.

On Nigeria’s rising debt levels, Adrian said that the IMF was not overly concerned, as it would allow the country to invest more in developing critical infrastructure.

 

“At the moment, funding conditions in economies such as Nigeria and other sub-Saharan African countries are very favourable but that may change at some point,” he said. The April 2019 Global Financial Stability Report finds that in spite of significant variability over the past two quarters, financial conditions remained accommodative.

 

As a result, financial vulnerabilities have continued to build in the sovereign, corporate, and non bank financial sectors in several systemically important countries, leading to elevated medium-term risks.  Also, the IMF in the April 2019 Fiscal Monitor Report urged Nigeria to increase Value Added Tax, increase and expand the coverage of excise duties.

 

The IMF commended the country’s latest Strategic Revenue Growth Initiative, which looks at a comprehensive approach to tax reform.

Men with beards and long hair have the smallest testicles – New Study

58F484E1-4C9D-46D0-86F1-A604F9361930.jpeg

A recent study claims that men with longer hair and beards may have smaller testicles than those who struggle to grow facial hair.

Teams from the University of Western Australia, who carried out the research, say a male “can be well-adorned or well-endowed, but it’s hard to be both”, Daily Mail reports.

This means hairy human men with a bushy beard and long hair are likely to have smaller testes that their clean-shaven brethren. According to the study, animals can either invest energy attracting females by growing out their hair and beards or spend their energy growing larger testis.

Primatologist and study co-author Dr Cyril Grueter, from the University of Western Australia, said testicle size varies enormously and is linked to a male’s appearance.

He said: “Some [primate] species sport flamboyant accoutrements such as beards, manes, capes and cheek flanges, and various shades of colour in their faces and fur.

“Others are pretty drab and look more like your Mr Average.

“This finding clearly shows that you can be well-adorned or well-endowed, but it’s hard to be both.”

‘Teen’ who claimed to be missing Timmothy Pitzen is actually a 23-year-old man with a criminal history

Days ago, a “teenager” was found wandering and he claimed he was Timmothy Pitzen, the boy who went missing in May 2011 at age 6. But the FBI have bow discovered that he is actually a 23-year-old man with a criminal history.

Police found him wandering the streets in Kentucky on Wednesday. He said he was 14, his name was Timmothy Pitzen, and he was kidnapped as a child. He claimed he managed to escape his kidnappers and run across a bridge into Kentucky.

But DNA tests proved the person is actually Brian Michael Rini, a petty criminal from Medina, Ohio.

 

 

The real Timmothy Pitzen went missing in May 2011 at age 6. He was last seen alive with his mother, Amy Fry-Pitzen, who was found dead in a motel room in Rockford, Illinois on May 14, three days after she checked her son out of his kindergarten class.

A suicide note was pinned to her body. It read, “You will never find him.”

Police say the note was penned by Fry-Pitzen. The note said the boy was safe and with people who would care for him, but that he would never be found.

When the “teenager” was found and he caimed to be the missing child, Timmothy’s family, especially his grandmother, were hopeful and awaited the DNA resuts to prove he was Timmothy. He even gave Timmothy’s correct middle name. Sadly, the DNA results showed he wasn’t Timmothy and the family’s hopes has been dashed yet again.

“It’s been awful, said Timmothy’s grandmother Alana Anderson. “I feel so sorry for the young man who’s obviously had a terrible time and felt the need to say he was someone else.”

Police say Rini has a criminal record dating back to 2013. His charges include passing bad checks and ID theft. It isn’t clear why police didn’t run his fingerprints to identify him.

Police say they are considering filing charges against Rini.

APC raises alarm over Governor Amosun’s last-minute contracts in Ogun State

The All Progressives Congress (APC) in Ogun State has raised alarm over alleged last-minute award of contracts by Senator Ibikunle Amosun, the outgoing Governor of the state.

 

The party also alleged that Amosun was busy with last-minute selling and auctioning of government properties, as well as secret recruitments into the civil service. Tunde Oladunjoye, the Publicity Secretary of the Caretaker Committee of the party in the state said this in a statement in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital, on Friday.

 

He said the Governor’s action was to “tie the hands” of Dapo Abiodun, the incoming Governor, who is billed to assume office on May 29.

The statement reads: “It has come to our notice that the outgoing administration of Senator Ibikunle Amosun is busy with last-minute award of contracts, selling and secret recruitments into the civil service, in a bid to tie the hands of the incoming Governor, Dapo Abiodun.

“While we find the reported last-minute contracts, withdrawals from the treasury, sale of land and illegal recruitment of Senator Amosun’s cronies into the senior positions of the Ogun State Civil Service very shocking, our party wishes  to warn the members of the general public that such hurrried transactions would not necessarily be binding on the incoming administration.

“We urge Ogun State’s senior civil servants to not be part of the desperate moves of the departing governor to undermine socio-economic stability of our state, by engaging in, condoning or being part of any act that breaches or constitutes a flagrant abuse of laid-down rules, regulations and due process.

“It is our belief that an administration with less than two months to hand over should, by now, be preparing its handover notes for a smooth transition, instead of digging pits for the incoming government.

“May we also reiterate here that all loans, overdraft and financial obligations that do not follow due process, including the approval of the Ogun State House of Assembly, would not be honoured. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.”

Mohamed Salah has become the fastest player in Liverpool history to reach 50 Premier League goals.

 

The 26-year-old Egyptian striker scored an important second-half goal for the Reds against Southampton with 10 minutes left to play on Friday night.

 

Egyptian Mohamed Salah becomes fastest player in Liverpool history to reach 50 Premier League goals.

The goal which came in his 69th appearance for Merseyside club, confirmed he reached a half-century three games quicker than previous record holder Fernando Torres.

After the match, Salah told Sky Sports: ‘I think that’s goal number 50 for Liverpool in the Premier League so that’s special – and after nine games [without one], but Henderson scored I think for the first time in maybe 30 games so we are both happy.

‘Not at all [I didn’t think about passing], as a striker I need to score, I am thinking to score. Maybe if someone is in a better position I can think but I just took my decision to shoot and I scored so I’m very happy about it.’

The goal was also his first goal after nine games for Liverpool without a single goal.
