Shadow: Oregon man gets 25 years for impregnating 11-year-old girl – what sentence Raniere have gotten?

Rapist of 11 year old Billy Joe Smith, 28, will be in prison until he is 53 (if he makes it.)
By Shadow State:
Keith Raniere should have received the same sentence for raping Rhiannon and Gina and other teens decades ago as Billy Joe Smith just did for raping an underage relative..

Billy Joe Smith, 28, of Oregon, pleaded guilty to first-degree rape for raping an 11-year-old female relative in November 2017.

He might have gotten away with it, but for the fact that the 11-year-old started developing a protruding belly, was tested, and was discovered to be 18 weeks pregnant in March 2018.

Smith was identified as the father.

When Smith found out, he fled Oregon after being charged with two counts of first-degree rape and one count each of first-degree sex abuse and incest in March 2018.

He was arrested in Nevada in April 2018 and extradited to Klamath County.

First-degree rape is a Class A felony in Oregon and carries a maximum sentence of 25 years in prison and Smith got the maximum.

Klamath County District Attorney Eve Costello said Smith will not be eligible for early release. He will be on post-prison supervision for life, must register as a sex offender, and have no contact with minors.

The gruesome perv was also wanted in Wisconsin for outstanding charges of forgery, battery of a firefighter or commission ward, and resisting arrest.

Fortunately, Oregon did not require the 11-year-old girl to wear a wire to prove he was the rapist.



Rapist of 11-year-old Billy Joe Smith, 28, will be in prison until he is 53 (if he makes it.)
Keith Raniere was 30 when he raped a 12-year-old some 60 times. Raniere was never charged, although New York State Police were aware of his crime.

  • Here’s the thing shadow state, in your zeal to try and zing Raniere, you haven’t taken into account the pain and suffering this poor 11 year old girl has suffered. You are using the horror of her rape and subsequent impregnation has if it’s a punchline to a joke.

    Shame on you.

    • “You are using the horror of her rape and subsequent impregnation has if it’s a punchline to a joke.” Lena

      Lena, the only joke is that hundreds, perhaps thousands, of people regarded Keith Raniere as a great spiritual teacher.
      The followers flocked to the Silver Bay YMCA resort on Lake George to celebrate the pervert’s week long birthday.
      The females lined up to have sex with the pervert risking venereal diseases and unintended pregnancies.
      Clare Bronfman gave up a large part of her fortune to finance the pervert.
      The Mexican elite in the Salinas family made a political alliance with the pervert and were willing to use him to impose a Fascist dictatorship in their country.
      And the Saintly Allison Mack, with tears of joy in her eyes, was willing to pimp out females to help satisfy the insatiable lust of the pervert.
      Lena, don’t you find the follies of NXIVM humans to be hilarious?

      “you haven’t taken into account the pain ans suffering this poor 11 year old girl has suffered. ” Lena

      And Lena, don’t you remember that the Great and Glorious Wizard of Clifton Park Keith Raniere taught his followers that if a girl experienced orgasm during a sexual encounter then it wasn’t rape?
      And his followers believed him!!!!!!!!!
      And many of the pervert’s female followers enabled him to rape girls.

      • I guess this is where I’m supposed to say, “No, you need to grow up.”

        Look, people can interpret articles any way they want and it seems to me that shadow state was not taking the 11 year old rape victim’s pain into consideration when he was trying to insult Raniere. My opinion is just as valid as yours and just as worthy as being expressed.

        • No, this is where you’re supposed to say, “Yes, I’m a snowflake.”

          We don’t even know the 11 year old’s name. I love it when people make comments like yours, now we know that you’re overly sensitive and can generally ignore your comments.

          • tex2,

            You do realize that by law an 11 year old’s name can’t be published right? And it’s interesting that you are pointing at other people and calling them overly sensitive and snowflakes when you are having a meltdown when someone expresses a different opinion.

            shadow state, please think about the underage victim before using their case of horrific abuse as a punchline against Raniere.

          • Yes, I realize her name can’t be published, and that fact makes it safe to talk about her situation so others can learn from her experience. I’m not having a meltdown, I’m watching you melt down. LOL

  • Yes, “Fortunately Oregon did not require the 11 year old girl to wear a wire to prove he was the rapist.” Now the 11-12 year old has to “only” deal with an abortion or be a child mother. Nice choice.

      • children at 11 do not have the hip dimensions to easily give birth and this puts the 11 year old and baby in great danger
        damn straight nice choice these PEDOS gots to go !!!!

          • An 11 year old child having to go through a C section is an even more horrifying thought then her being forced to give birth to her rapist’s child and yet we have tex2 casually mentioning it as though it’s an everyday thing.

            I’m guessing this comment will also be received as a snowflake meltdown. You really do need to get some new material for your cyber-bullying.
