Freak is perhaps too kind a word…

A U.S. Justice Department official has been arrested on suspicion of traveling to Detroit over the weekend to have sex with a minor.

John David R. Atchison, 53, an assistant U.S. attorney from the northern district of Florida, was arraigned in U.S. District Court in Detroit Monday afternoon.An undercover officer posed as a mother offering her child to Atchison for sex, according to police.


The detective, acting as the child’s mother, allegedly arranged a sexual encounter between Atchison and her 5-year-old daughter, police said.

In deposition, detectives said Atchison suggested the mother tell her daughter that “you found her a sweet boyfriend who will bring her presents.”The undercover detective expressed concern about physical injury to the 5-year-old girl as a result of the sexual activity. Detectives said Atchison responded, ” I am always gentle and loving; not to worry, no damage ever, no rough stuff ever. I only like it soft and nice.”The undercover detective asked how Atchison can be certain of no injury. He responded, “Just gotta go slow and very easy. I’ve done it plenty,” according to detectives.

Good Lord.

Can’t confirm political affiliation one way or the other, in case anyone’s wondering. AUSAs are career employees, not political appointees, so it’s hard to say for sure. One of the Kossacks thinks they’ve found him as a registered Republican, but the birthdate doesn’t seem quite right.

But even if he is a Democrat (God forbid), he still needs to be nailed to the wall but good.

    My question is can’t he find a five year old closer.

    Seriously, this is just plain sick.

    And I find it astonishing there’s no info on this guy.

    Hell, there’s more out there about me!

    I’m completely sickened. This guy is an AUSA!!!

    How about life in prison, with no parole? I’ve heard that child abusers and child rapists are treated worse than dirt in prison.

    One thing that strikes me as particularly odd/disgusting about this – the guy was making arrangements with the child’s “mother”? What kind of twisted mindset doesn’t recognize how purely evil a parent must be to offer their 5 yr. old for sex?

    Was he thinking “Ah, I’ve found someone who shares my interesting and unique view of sensuality.”? I can’t wrap my head around the idea that someone would engage other people in a quest to do something so disgusting. If he’s convicted, I’d be quite satisfied if he never saw the light of day again.

    Well, I guess he figured that as long as it was consensual as far as the *mother* was concerned, he wouldn’t have to worry about any legal trouble, as opposed to if he’d just abducted the kid and raped her. Again, makes you wonder how many other times this has happened.

    Also, it gives him the (very flimsy) out of claiming that he was actually engaged in a one-man sting operation to nail sex traffickers, one evil mom at a time.
