You thought “gay” men were just ordinary neighbours who live in cosy couples and are safe with children? Think again.
Kenneth Livingston, 50, of Cleveland, repeatedly raped a 12-year-old victim while the boy visited Livingston’s home in the Union Square apartment complex on E. 98th Street in Cleveland.
Livingston was a volunteer basketball coach at Zelma George Recreation Center where the victim played. He took pictures and videos of the lewd acts and shared the material with Christopher T. Wilson, 50, of Cleveland, who also lived in the Union Square complex.
The victim’s mother alerted the police.
On June 26, 2015, Livingston was arrested by officers with the Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority Police Department. Additional forensic examination was completed by the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
Livingston pleaded guilty to two counts of rape on Nov. 17.
Following his plea, visiting Judge Michael E. Corrigan immediately sentenced Livingston to 20 years to life in prison. Upon his release, Livingston will be required to register as a Tier III sexual offender for the rest of his life.
Wilson was charged with Illegal Use Of Minor In Nudity-Oriented Material or Performance for his involvement in the incident. He pleaded guilty to one count of Attempted Illegal Use of a Minor, and is scheduled to be sentenced on Dec. 3.
“Kenneth Livingston pretended to mentor little boys only to use his position as a means to lure his victims. Thanks to the hard work of CMHA detectives, this sick individual will never hurt another child,” said Holly Welsh, Director of Prosecutions for the Ohio Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force.
YGB says: Well it figures, doesn’t it. Queers have always been paedos so it’s not surprising that they’re still paedos today. They may call it by some fancy name like “Greek love” but this is what it actually means – revolting injury to a boy’s rectum. NEVER let them work with children as sports coaches, boy scout leaders or anything like that.
