Arizona Fugitive and Recent Kidnapping Victim Guido Puccini Molested Girl in '92, Report Says

Categories: Perv Alert

Guido Jesus Puccini, a.k.a. Jose Querbino Puccini of Florida, escaped justice for 23 years after being convicted for kidnapping and sexually abusing his step-daughter. He faces a court hearing in Maricopa County this morning.
Guido Puccini, the Florida man whose kidnapping last month led to his arrest as an Arizona fugitive, escaped justice for 23 years.

In 1992, Puccini admitted to having sex with a young girl, molesting her repeatedly and telling her "this is what people do when they love each other," according to a faded Mesa police report reviewed by New Times.

He was convicted by a Maricopa County jury of kidnapping and attempted child molestation, even though he fled the state before his trial. We published a blog post about Puccini's arrest after a Florida TV news station broke the story.

Accused pervert David Talkington lives with his parents and raps about wearing nice clothes and -- it shouldn't surprise you -- grabbing girls.
David Talkington, the accused sex maniac busted this week for grabbing women in Scottsdale, is an aspiring rapper and -- possibly -- a Scottsdale hospital employee.

The booking sheet for Talkington states he's currently employed at Thompson Peak Hospital, but Scottsdale police don't know what he does there. (Or should we say "did?")

His Linked In page says he's self-employed and had worked from 2008 to 2009 at Hollister Co., a clothing store.

We had a listen to some of this admitted perv's bad rap music, which is posted on YouTube.

Here's a lyric from "Fast Cars" that jumped out at us: "I grab a few girls like two plus two."

Most suspected cyber-pervs give up quietly when authorities come knocking, judging from the many arrest reports we've read.

Teddy Jay Blair, 53, of Phoenix, put up some resistance during a Wednesday raid, records show, refusing to drop a knife and trying to run from agents.

An FBI agent discovered in March that Blair had been downloading and sharing child-porn videos on the GigaTribe file-sharing network, according to court records. After gathering enough evidence from Internet servers, agents served a warrant on Blair's Phoenix home.

Following a raid of his home and search of his computer and storage media, the FBI found more than a thousand child-porn videos and hundreds of still photos.

Christopher Clark, 53, of Mesa, has been arrested on suspicion of possessing child porn videos. His wife runs an in-home babysitting service.
Christopher Clark must know a few things about temptation.

The 53-year-old Mesa man reportedly is obsessed with videos of little kids having sex. Meanwhile, his wife -- a former preschool teacher -- has kept the home full of little kids, as she runs an in-home babysitting service and takes care of several grandchildren.

Authorities have no evidence of any improper hands-on sexual activity by Clark, who works at a Valley Home Depot. But Clark's likely going bye-bye for a while after the discovery of many gigabytes of child-porn video files on his home computer.

Pictures taken last week of a Navajo man's penis and "stumpy" thumbs reportedly link him to the photographed sexual assault of a toddler.

Carl Carlson of the Navajo Nation committed aggravated sexual assault of a child, sexual exploitation of a child and possessed child pornography, according to a complaint filed on Friday in U.S. District Court by the FBI.

Carlson's wife talked to Phoenix police in March of 2011 after she found a "large stack" of pictures in a car of the young girl being molested by a man she believed was her husband.

The girl, a few years older now, was probably between 1 and 4 years old when she was assaulted, authorities believe.

The 45-year-old lawyer was arrested in the early-morning hours of April 23 after a series of previously unpublicized events that have stunned his colleagues in the legal profession.

Court records in State of Arizona v. John Keith Vigileos include a one-page "probable cause" statement that summarizes the case against the Gilbert man.

Vigileos and his estranged wife have shared custody of the 12-year-old victim, as well as the woman's 9-year-old son and 5-year-old daughter (the youngest child is the sole product of their union).

The three kids were at Vigileos' residence when the 12-year-old called her mother about 2 a.m. on April 23 to report that Vigileos touched her and forced him to touch her inappropriately.

Arizona Republic's Uneven Victim Protection Program: Sex Suspect's Name Omitted in One Case, but Not in Another

rivera and branscom suspects.JPG
Bruce Branscom and Jose Alfredo Rivera were arrested on New Year's Day in separate cases on suspicion of molesting little girls.

The arrest of men on suspicion of sexual misconduct with their own family members makes for a journalistic conundrum: Name the suspect, and you've all but identified the victim.

Local media was presented with this challenge yesterday -- twice. Court records show that two men -- Jose Alfredo Rivera of Glendale and Bruce Branscom of Mesa -- were arrested on New Year's Day in separate cases after being accused of sexual activity with 12- and 13-year-old girls.

In our blog post yesterday, you'll see that we decided to name the men without stating their relationship to the victims. Not sure if that's the best way, but when a guy is accused of committing a horrific crime like that, we tend to believe that he doesn't deserve anonymity.

The Arizona Republic, on the other hand, decided for inexplicable reasons to name one suspect -- and describe his relationship with the victim -- but not the other.

The story by reporter Angela Piazza about Rivera states clearly that the victim is his stepdaughter. (Thus defeating New Times' attempt to cloak the relationship between the two, as New Times accidentally defeated the Republic's attempt to hide the suspect's identity.)

The Republic states that, "the suspect's name is being withheld by The Arizona Republic to protect the victim's identity."

But now the truth is out, for better or worse -- as it is in the Branscom case.

Jose Alfredo Rivera of Glendale and Bruce Allan Branscom of Mesa likely don't know each other, but they've got something in common:

Both were arrested on New Year's Day for allegedly molesting 12-year-old girls.

The situations are separate, but also shockingly similar. The suspects knew the victims in both cases.

Branscom's a 28-year-old Internet designer who's accused of touching the breasts and vagina of a 12-year-old girl over several weeks, court records show. She's 13 now.

Police arrested him after hearing from the girl and her mother -- he lawyered up right away.
