Criminal Justice Teacher Accused Of Having Sex With 16-Year-Old Boy, Exposing Him To HIV

A criminal justice teacher and part-time sheriff’s deputy from Waycross, Georgia is accused of not only having sex with a 16-year-old boy, but also of knowingly exposing that teenager to HIV.

After his arrest in late November, 42-year-old Tracy Wayne Crosby was suspended from his teaching job. He was also fired from his part-time gig at the Pierce County Sheriff’s department, where he worked as an investigator.

Jail records indicate that Crosby is being charged with reckless conduct for allegedly knowingly exposing someone to HIV, which is a felony. In addition, he is being slammed with a misdemeanor charge of sodomy.

It is unclear if he currently has a lawyer who can speak on his behalf.

The victim’s mother actually caught her son and Crosby in the act. According to News4Jax, suspicious after her son didn’t explain where he was going, she tailed him and followed him to a park. It was

Meet The New ‘Cold Justice’ Detective Helping To Solve A 13-Year-Old Unsolved Murder Case

Cold Justice” has a new policewoman on the case. The series documenting cold cases is bringing a 26-year veteran from the Toledo Police Department, Tonya Rider, onto the show to help solve cold cases.

As the Toledo Blade shares, Rider joins former prosecutor Kelly Siegler and a rotating team of former and current law-enforcement officials who investigate murders and disappearances that have gone cold due to lack of resources and manpower.

“I knew I wanted to do it,” shares Rider about the opportunity after meeting Siegler. 

“We’re literally coming into town, putting our bags down, getting a good night’s sleep, and working the entire time, 12-14 hours days, for the entire time we’re there,” she explains of the investigative process on the show.

The cast has about eight to 10 days in each location to investigate and provide a theory of what happened. “It’s just getting the lay of the land within that short period of

Jay-Z Wants Hollywood To Make More Social Justice Projects: "This Is Our Power"

Jay-Z wants the entertainment industry to use its power for good. The hip-hop mogul penned an open letter in The Hollywood Reporter to encourage his peers to invest in projects that highlight social justice issues like police brutality and the unfair justice system.

“The power of one voice is strong, but when it comes to social justice, the power of our collective voices is unstoppable. Now is the time to recognize that through our voices we really can effect change,” he writes. 

This year, the rapper released the documentary Time: The Kalief Browder Story. The film  highlighted the story of 16-year-old Browder who was held in solitary confinement at Rikers Island for two (out of three) years without a trial. He committed suicide in 2015. “We’ve seen some of that change slowly start to happen. President Obama outlawed solitary confinement for juveniles. New York has started the long process

Q&A: ‘Cold Justice,’ reality TV vs. scripted TV

You have questions. I have some answers.

Q: Could you please tell me if “Cold Justice” is going to return to TV soon? If not, what happened to the show?

A: The series, which originally ran on TNT, will return — but in a new location. Oxygen is revamping itself as “a crime destination network for women” beginning summer 2017, and its lineup will add new installments of “Cold Justice” in the fall.

And what about this change at Oxygen? The network has already been moving more into crime programming, including a “Crime Time” weekend block of programs, which is now part of the lineup Friday through Monday.

“The recent expansion of our ‘Crime Time’ weekend block has enjoyed double-digit gains and has really resonated with our female audience,” said a statement from Frances Berwick, president, Lifestyle Networks, NBCUniversal Cable Entertainment. (Yes, that is the full

Cold Justice: Cancelled TNT Series to Be Revived for New Cable Channel

Big changes are coming to Oxygen. Deadline reports the network is rebranding itself as a crime-themed network and reviving the cancelled TNT series Cold Justice.

From Dick Wolf, the unscripted show followed former prosecutor Kelly Siegler and former crime-scene investigator Yolanda McClary as they travel to small towns around the country in order to look into murder cases that have lingered for years without answers or closure. The series was cancelled in 2015 after three seasons.

In addition to rebooting Cold Justice, Oxygen has ordered the new series The Jury Speaks. The show will explore “high-profile cases through the eyes of the jury.” Both The Jury Speaks and Cold Justice are slated to premiere later this year.

What do you think? Did you watch Cold Justice? Will you watch the revival and/or The Jury Speaks?
