Corbin James Breitenbach (Wichita Police Dept.)

Corbin James Breitenbach, 23, of Wichita, Kansas, had already done four years in prison for choking and raping a 22-year-old woman. He was released on April 28 — and six weeks later, he was arrested for breaking into a second-floor apartment bedroom, taking a 7-year-old girl out on to the balcony, and raping her.

A family member said that when Breitenbach was 17, “something changed him. He snapped.”

Con artist Derek Alldred scams women in Texas

Lovefraud has written about Derek Alldred before. He’s scammed women from California, Arizona and Minnesota out of thousands of dollars. Most recently, he moved on to Texas.

Alldred claims to be a Navy SEAL, doctor, lawyer or professor. Last year in Arizona, he pleaded no contest to theft. Then he failed to appear at his sentencing.

Perhaps he was already in Texas by then.
