Saw this today at WhyWeProtest forum. Arrested for trying to procure sex with a minor.  He's a scientologist I suspect he's either a former patient or an FSM for Narconon. See below info about him. He was once married to Karen Hackett Morris and may have been working with Debra MacIntyre, a board member of NN GA at her health company

Also appears on the donor list for the Atlanta Ideal Org:





Humanitarian level indicates a $100,000 donation.

We've seen this kind of behavior from other scientologists, most recently from Jan Eastgate, the president of CCHR, I believe.  I guess that's what comes from viewing children as "adults in small bodies."

Humanitarian, my ass!  Sickening.

Why am I not surprised?

At least he went hunting outside the Cof$ 'preserve', so they can't hush this one up.

I wonder how long it will take for him to get 'disappeared' from the Cof$ web sites & farcebook pages?

Mary McConnell Can you help research the status of his criminal case? He is no longer in custody in Catoosa County and the FBI said he was charged under Georgia state statutes. There's also mention of this address on WWP.

Others are looking into this, including some GA reporters. It's my understanding that Catoosa County District Attorney's Office in Ringgold, GA ( 706-965-9055 ) would know what's up. At least this is according to the Catoosa County Government Website statement about CRIMINAL WARRANTS : "All Criminal Warrants are issued thru the Magistrate's Office. After a warrant is issued, it is sent to the Sheriff's Department for service. Once a person is arrested and makes bond, they are set a court date for arraignment to come back to the Superior Court. The District Attorney is responsible for prosecution of all criminal matters."

Austin sat in the detention center for at least 5 days, maybe more before being released. Perhaps he didn't have money for the bail bond.

A Sept 4, 2012 Examiner article stated "Austin was transported and processed at the Catoosa County Detention Center on state charges of two counts criminal attempt of child molestation, two counts criminal attempt of aggravated child molestation and violation of the pornography and child exploitation act.[..] Acworth resident, fifty-six-year-old Daniel Austin was arrested on Friday in Ringgold, Ga., after he traveled there to meet a minor child for purposes of having sex.[..] Austin remains in custody at the time of this publication. http://www.examiner.com/article/chattanooga-doctor-and-acworth-man-charged-undercover-sex-sting

Good detective work, mefree!! Looks like you are right about the release date being the 21st. Long time to stuck in a detention center. Everone must have abandoned him.

It's too bad we didn't find the Jail Population Report - - for the day before.
www.lmjc.net/Catoosa%20Jailpop.pdf
It lists the full charges and bail for each, whether it's a felony or Misdemeanor. Currently it's for Oct 22 2012 and he's not listed.

Only in the google mini cache of some date before that and it's near impossible to get a screenshot of it. Google doesn't hold it in it's main cache system. All I saw was that he was on hold, that all were felonies and the bail listed in the twenty thousands for each of the 5 charges.

I should add that we are supposed to presume he's innocent until proven guilty. For his sake, I hope he's not guilty. This is a lifetime of prison if he is.

That's him trying to show he's done his Scientology Training Routines and can confront the SP's he thinks the cops are.

TR 0  - Be there comfortably and confront

TR-0: Confronting:

In the first exercise, a student and coach face each other with eyes open. The routine ends when the student can confront the coach for at least two hours without movement, excessive blinking, or loss of attention.

Ha! He must have skipped the TR on how not to look like a scumbag. Eyes are the window to the soul. I better shut up.

I know what you mean.  Remember, though, I said he looked like he was trying.... didn't mean he succeeded. Interesting how strong the state soul can't hide.

This is incredibly disturbing in so many ways for me.  I met Dan on numerous occasions, including out at the Applied Scholastics Spanish Lake facility grand opening outside of St. Louis.  His daughter was working there at the time.  The first thing I thought of when seeing this was sadness and disappointment, what his daughter must think (if she knows), and of course rage as a father myself over any adult who would attempt to take advantage of a child like that.  Dan was a staff member at the Atlanta church on and off, worked with Deb McIntyre (though I do not believe have been together for quite some time), worked with Mary Rieser, and probably many other Scientologist-owned businesses in the Atlanta area.  I also saw Dan down at Flag before, out at Arrowhead one time and many times during the year+ I was living in Georgia in 2007/early '08. Last time I saw him was probably down at Flag in 2009.  I didn't know he was Karen Hackett-Morris' ex-husband.

Looking back, it seemed he was often "working conditions" for things, so it would make me suspicious as to whether church personnel were aware of his inclinations (including previous crimes committed) failed to report him, and clearly "the tech" failed to handle it.  Not sure what else to say at the moment.

Thanks for sharing your impressions, Lucas. Of course, any unattended child could have been vulnerable at some point. I couldn't help but think about Mary Rieser's daughter, who is now an adult.

Holy f$%^ing shit. It is about 90 miles from his home to the town he was supposed to meet this girl. The town is near the Tennessee border. The FBI could have travelled a few miles to make it an interstate case; instead they handed it to the local prosecutors. I am not sure whether that is good news or bad news for Dan. One thing, on these types of stings, the FBI tends to be very thorough, dotting all the i's and crossing all the t's. I have no doubt that the age of the "victim", along with a vulgar rendition of the anticipated acts to be performed  were discussed on a number of different occasions. It is a good thing Matt Hines has not been disbarred yet and can come to the rescue.

It appears his facebook page has been taken down.

Consequences of conviction!!!
« Reply #19 on: October 25, 2012, 09:50 »
If convicted of attempted aggravated child molestation, the penalty is not less than 10 nor more than thirty years. Georgia Criminal Code, Sec. 16-6-4. Also, the court may order the following (my emphasis):

(2) The court sentencing a person who has been convicted of a first offense of aggravated child molestation when the victim is 16 years of age or younger at the time of the offense is authorized to require, before sentencing, that the defendant undergo a psychiatric evaluation to ascertain whether or not medroxyprogesterone acetate chemical treatment or its equivalent would be effective in changing the defendant´s behavior. If it is determined by a qualified mental health professional that such treatment would be effective, the court may require, as a condition of probation and upon provisions arranged between the court and the defendant, the defendant to undergo medroxyprogesterone acetate treatment or its chemical equivalent which must be coupled with treatment by a qualified mental health professional. In case of a person sentenced to probation who is required to undergo such treatment or its chemical equivalent and is in the custody of a law enforcement agency or confined in a jail at the time of sentencing, when he or she becomes eligible for probation, such person shall begin medroxyprogesterone acetate treatment and counseling prior to his or her release from custody or confinement. A person sentenced to probation who is required to undergo such treatment and who is not in the custody of a law enforcement agency or confined in a jail at the time of sentencing shall be taken into custody or confined until treatment can begin. Additional treatment may continue after such defendant´s release from custody or confinement until the defendant demonstrates to the court that such treatment is no longer necessary. No such treatment shall be administered until such person has been fully informed of the side effects of hormonal chemical treatment and has consented to the treatment in writing. The administration of the treatment shall conform to the procedures and conditions set out in subsection (c) of Code Section 42-9-44.2.
