Southwest Key Worker Guilty Of UAC Sexual Abuse

Southwest Key Lighthouse facility, Phoenix, AZ

A former employee of Southwest Key, Levian D. Pacheco, age 25, was convicted on seven counts of abusive sexual contact with a ward of Southwest Key and three counts of sexual abuse of a Southwest Key ward. Southwest Key is a contractor for the Office Of Refugee resettlement tasked with processing and providing temporary care to Unaccompanied Alien Children.

U.S. District Judge Steven P. Logan presided over the seven-day trial. Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 3, 2018.

Between August 2016 and July 2017, Pacheco sexually abused multiple Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) at the Casa Kokopelli Southwest Key Facility in Mesa, Ariz.

Pacheco was employed as a youth care worker at the facility and was in charge of supervising the minors. The jury convicted Pacheco of abusing seven teenage boys, some on more than one occasion.

During the Obama administration, Southwest Key employees attempted to reach out to Arizona and federal government officials with concerns about alleged maltreatment. Caseworkers, who feared retribution, alleged heinous treatment of UACs, crimes including their belief that UACs were being turned over to cartels for sale, but they were ignored.

  1. Lies, Lies, Lies and more lies, none of this could have possibly taken place under the watch of the Obama administration. Not since Toto pulled back the curtain on the great wizzard of Oz, have we seen such blatant lies.
    It was only once Obama was unfortunately forced out of office, evicted from his home by outdated racist term limits, compounded by Russian collusion and Trumps sexual conquest and the hijacking of the electoral process that this could have occurred.
    Where was the outrage from a free press that knows no bounds of decency when digging up a story?
    Where was the outrage from impassioned looney leftest? Where was the outrage from Ms. Waters demanding impeachment? Where was the outrage of public condemnation from the left?
    Where was the outrage? It was buried behind a solid wall of partisan politics. A partisan conspiracy against the truth facilitated by a partisan press pretending to be free in name only.
    No, none of these sexual attacks against these children could have taken place during Obama’s presidency, because that would hurt the legacy of what Joe Biden called “The first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy, I mean, that’s a storybook, man.”
    I’m sure for the victims of abuse, this storybook fairytale has turned into a lifelong horror story.
    Where was the outrage? It was hidden behind feared retribution, alleged heinous treatment of UACs, crimes including their belief that UACs were being turned over to cartels for sale.
    But they were ignored, because that didn’t fit the narrative and after all, what’s a few lives shattered by abuse when compared to the Obama legacy.

    The Oracle

  2. We would benefit immensely if our feckless state legislators would pass a law for the Arizona Criminal Code that stated, “Anybody convicted of a crime that would/could/did impregnate the victim, would/could/did infect the victim with an STD or any other debilitating disease, will receive the punishment of death by hanging within six months of said conviction.
    Anybody who believes the death penalty for sexual assault is too harsh, watch the video “For A Better Day,” by Avicii who tried to warn us all about the worldwide market of child sex slavery.
