Sheriff Paul Babeu on Defensive Again; Denies Sister's Claims He Had Sexual Relationship With 17-Year-Old Boy From Boarding School He Once Ran

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu self-portrait.

Paul Babeu is on the defensive -- again.

This time the embattled Pinal County sheriff has hired the Rose Law Group to defend him from a second round of allegations from his sister, Lucy, that he engaged in a sexual relationship with one of the students from DeSisto School in Massachusetts.

Read New Times' feature story about the first round of allegations that Babeu abused his power by using his Mexican ex-boyfriend's visa as leverage to keep him from exposing their relationship. Those claims made by Babeu's ex are now under investigation.

But now, it's Babeu's sister who has something to say.

Babeu served as the executive director and headmaster of the DeSisto School from 1999 to 2001.

KTAR is among Valley media reporting that Lucy Babeu also alleged that her brother had a sexual relationship with a 17-year-old boy, Joshua Geyer, at the school.

Lucy Babeu told the ABC15 Investigators that she confronted her brother after finding a student from DeSisto school living with Babeu. She claims that Babeu told her that the young man was his "boyfriend" and that he loved him.

Babeu's new attorneys at the Rose Law Group fired back with medical records to discredit Lucy Babeu and call her mental stability into question. (So what happened to Chris DeRose, the sheriff's personal attorney and Congressional campaign adviser who was handling this firestorm?)

As Babeu explained to a radio talk-show host in San Fransisco -- this is a very "messy" situation. And it keeps getting messier.

But it's one that Babeu could easily have avoided with a little discretion.

It wasn't just Lucy. Channel 15news talked to eight students that confirmed the relationship.

The only thing left for Babeu is the "Jerry Sandusky" defense: I'm innocent,really.

lol yea, because Jason Rose isnt known as a lying scumbag who hacks for politicians in trouble..HE has ZERO credibility...She has no other reason to lie, not like shes getting paid to say it..while babs has every reason to lie.  I would have give him the benefit of the doubt 3 years ago, but that was before he turned into arpaio jr.

Dear yourproductsucks, There's a little more to it than that, dumb ass! This story was taken off a Channel 15 report, and at least it gave Babeu a chance to deny. He does that a lot lately doesn't he? The Jose stuff about abuse of power by the sheriff is much more serious. But keep enjoying his dick in your ass. Also, just because Lucy has been treated for mental problems doesn't mean she's wrong. Also, there are more sources than just Lucy reporting that Babeu had sex with a 17-year-old student at the school he ran. Sex with a student at one's school would get any administrator fired -- underage or not! Maybe you shoud bother to watch the freakin' video before you make a fool of yourself, huh?

When ones position is indefensible with the facts.

Attack the weak an helpless with lies and inuendo.  Divert attention from the facts and blame the messanger.

The fact that the political powers and media knew that Babeu was corrupt and refused to act. That lack of action is the real crime in this matter.

How did the attorney get the sister's medical records, and isn't it just a bit illegal to distribute someone's medical records without their permission?  Medical records are not exactly public domain.

Interesting that the school was closed in 2003 by the state agency run by the Governor and Mitt was the Governor then. Small world.

Good Job Monica... I do believe that Lucy's a credible source, and c'mon, we all know someone who has or has had mental issues, (in my case, a sister of mine) and she's never accused anyone of having sex with underage people. In addition, there's another 60 former students from DeSisto that would be happy to talk to the media....

Other students interviewed by ABC 15 said it was common knowledge that sheriff Studboi1 was having an affair with the 17 year old male student, so it's not just Baboo's sister.  
  This sheriff is a serious pervert/sexual predator and he has to go.

Babeu giving a radio interview in San Francisco? I guess he is already looking around for a new state to recreate himself, how appropriate, he surely might fit in but first he has to drop the fake conservatism, don't think them folks there will buy his log cabin game!;-)

His homosexuality is getting in the way of his work. These new allegations are troubling and disturbing. It's a good thing that the Tulsa Police Awards event in OK, had ditched Baboo as a guest speaker.

Baboo is now in deep shit. He needs to put an end to his career. To lay these miserable issues to rest.

This guy is not the brightest bulb in the gay pack is he?    Maybe it has something to do with being a homosexual.    I know we're all supposed to love homosexuals for being homosexual but I really don't understand why.    Being only 2% of the population, you'd think we would only have to hear about them 2% of the time.     It seems to be a lot more than that.    How many weekly TV shows have a homosexual on the cast?    2%?    It has to be more than half.   I wonder why?    Destruction of normal family values, perhaps?

Lucy seems like a credible source. Good call Monica! Your choice of using single sources with no corroboration is, at least, consistent.

Hitching your credibility to loony tune Lucy and a jilted malicious ex doesn't seem the slightest bit risky.

You know what they say about S.F.  That's the heart of "Gay Pride". There is no better place in receiving sympathy/support than in S.F.  if you're "gay".
There is only one problem though--he's still campaigning on a hardline Republican ticket. I sure hope the "gay" folks in S.F. realize that.

Check the KTAR site. The former student has submitted a questionable letter to Babeu's lawyer giving his own full name.  That, from Paul's lover, not the New Times.

Speaking about former students and their full names, how about the lady ABC15 interviewed last night (lives in Phoenix now) who witnessed activities between Babeu and his mistress Joshua andsuffered under Babeu's rule.

Complain about Lucy all you want. Now you can go on to discount the students that were there at the time. They must be wrong too.

Matt Heinz. Why did PNT put his name is their earlier story? Because it was in a text message Babeu sent to Jose and Jose still had it on his phone. Blame Jose?

Mentally unstable? Let's start with Paul Babeu.

And thanks to you Babeu loyalists.

It was the ex-student himself, through Babeu's camp, who first disclosed his name, in a series of shifting, weasel-worded statements.

 Are you aware that the 17 year old is now a full grown man today? You should be disgusted at Sheriff Baboo for deceiving the public's trust. He's clearly a sexual predator wearing a badge. That itself is a cause for alarm.

Which explains the 3 heterosexual people setting up the K9 menage?

I know we're all supposed to love heterosexuals for being heterosexual but I really don't understand why.

Maybe its because the conservative talking heads like Anne Coulter and Glen Beck and the policy promoters like Focus on the Family and James Dobson won't stop talking about homosexuals and working to pass laws to push them back into the closet.  Santorum's freakishly uptight comments on birth control are so refreshing because finally someone on the far right is talking about straight sex for a change instead of being so intensly focused on homosexuals.  I promise you that if the far right talking heads and media would drop the subject it would go back to being less than 2% of the conversation like you want it to be.

Actually, KNXV also broadcast interviews with several students from the school, who recall that the relationship was common knowledge on the compound.  Three days later, Babeu still has failed to address their charges.  (When he sees that attacking his sister won't save him, I assume he'll attack them, too.)

Something more....

I'm not upset that you said that but I don't think you understand.

I have said in the past that I won't label myself a victim but I do have other words I will use about myself. I can and do beat myself up pretty good sometimes for something I really had no control over.

I call myself warped, sick, twisted, not normal.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that it is hurtful to "hear"that from somebody that I respect.

 YPS, you think if Lucy had told them instead of a 17 year old boy it was a 3 year old Belgian Malinois MCSO would investigate?

I would like to hear why you call Lucy a loony tune. Will you please explain that to me? I think with all the stories of inappropriate behavior that these two grew up with would make most anybody sound loony.

I could share with you stories of violence and sexual abuse that I grew up with...would you think I was loony for saying those things about my life?

Since I am sharing,  after hearing some of the sexual abuse that went on in the home I can understand why Paul might think that some sexual behaviors would be normal. In his world they are.

I have talked to many people who have been sexually abused and that would include talking about their sexual proclivities. So when I hear stories like this I can see why in people who have been abused or are witness to abuse it is "normal".

YPS, you might not have the proof you need to see how detrimental this situation for him to step down. He has done little to show his innocence other than to deny the allegations. He has been shown to be somebody who is untrustworthy. We don't need this type of Sheriff in Arizona. We need to clean house. I think you can agree with that.

I am not making light of her trauma. I am sorry it is perceived that way.

The same argument could be made against those who attack Sheriff Babeu. He has, in the past, divulged he was a victim of sexual abuse as a child.

Sexual assaults that occurred in Massachusetts don't fall within the jurisdictional boundaries of MCSO.

The woman claims her brother has blocked her ability to comment on the Internet. This flies in the face of normalcy and begs oneself to question her credibility. This statement was made during the same interview being quoted.

I have read her ramblings on numerous occasions. There is no question she was traumatized at some point in her life and I am empathetic of this trauma. She has admittedly not been able to recover from this trauma, of which she is a legit victim. This alone does not attack her credibility, yet it does point to possible reasons why she is disjointed and uncredible.

There are countless people who endured sexual reprisal in their lives and are able to function appropriately despite the trauma endured. She does not fit into this category.

No room needed here.

 Of course, that is probably the leading factor (no pun intended) in why he has chosen the things he has in life. That and being the narcissist he is.

Okay that's enough you two. Go get a room or something. If YPS isn't "gay". We need to face the harsh reality that your beloved Sheriff Paul Babeu is an omnious criminal wearing a badge(and now wants to represent you in Congress).  One has to wonder if Babue's sexuality is a factor in these heinous crimes.

 No expert here but "mentally ill" is a huge growth industry here in the US, most commonly used to deny medical care.

You seem very smart and write well YPS but I personally am appalled to see anyone discredited so easily when the psychopaths amongst us have free reign.

I do believe that it is easy to block someone commenting - did not see the interview you reference - but I am sure an attorney can take care of that with a threatening letter, once again, not having seen the interview and not knowing where to find it . . . .
