Bruce Hamilton
Crimes: Sexual Abuse of a Minor, Aiding and Abetting

Some nasty things were happening on the Navajo Reservation in New Mexico. It seems that Bruce Hamilton, now 77, had a liking for sex with minors. Ewwwww. Trouble for him was it was hard to find any minors who were actually willing to have sex with him. And, of course, sex with minors is against the law!

The old man Bruce Hamilton was a non-native who lived on the Navajo Reservation in Shiprock. He knew Herbert Ben Sr., 63, and Rosabelle Ben, 58, who also lived in Shiprock. Through Rosabelle Ben, Bruce Hamilton was able to procure himself some illicit sex with a minor from August 1, 2010 and December 11, 2011.

Rosabelle Ben was paid with money and alcohol for letting Bruce Hamilton have access to a child. She knew damn well that there was going to be sex involved and didn’t much care. She was pimping out a child to a dirty old man!

I do not know the child’s connection to Rosabelle Ben, or how the child was “convinced” to participate in underaged prostitution. Regardless, what Rosabelle Ben did was completely reprehensible and morally repugnant. She’d purposely turned a child into the sex toy of an old pervert.

I feel so bad for the victim — for almost a year and a half to be subjected to sexual abuses no child should be forced to endure.

Herbert Ben Sr., a member of the Navajo Nation, was a dirty old man like Bruce Hamilton. He too had sexually abused a minor. I do not know if he’d abused the same Navajo child that his buddy had. I wouldn’t be surprised if he had. If Rosabelle Ben had no qualms about prostituting the child out to one disgusting old man, why wouldn’t she let a second old man get his rocks off too?

I really, truly hope we’re not talking about incest here. That poor victim was abused and degraded enough without the abusers being relatives.

Thankfully, somebody came forward and lodged a complaint alleging child sex abuse. The case was investigated by the Shiprock Office of the Navajo Nation Division of Public Safety in conjunction with the Farmington Office of the FBI.

I’m pretty sure the Bens and Bruce Hamilton didn’t consider that their crimes were committed on the Navajo Reservation and they therefore would be doing time in a federal prison.

The 3 nasty f*cktards were arrested in May 2012 and charged with sexual abuse of a child, and aiding and abetting the sexual abuse of a child.

Herbert Ben Sr. pled guilty on July 31, 2013 to sexual abuse of a minor. Yay, one down, two to go!

Bruce Hamilton pled guilty on August 19, 2013 to sexually abusing a minor. Yay, two down, one to go!

And then Rosabelle Ben pled guilty on October 29, 2013 to being an accessory to sexual abuse of a minor. A slam dunk for the prosecutors!

In April 2014, Herbert Ben Sr. and Bruce Hamilton were both sentenced to 4 years in prison. Rosabelle Ben was sentenced to 3 years 4 months in prison. All 3 nasty f*cktards will be required to register as sex offenders when they complete their prison sentences.

I must say I’m disappointed by the sentences. I gather that the victim was at least 12 when the abuse began, and not a toddler or small child. Still, the evil trio had reduced their victim’s value as a human being down to a commodity bartered for money, booze and sex.

I truly, truly hope the victim has all the necessary support, education and guidance, and will go on to live a safe, happy and successful life.

    Cleo, it’s shame you don’t have the mug shots for these 3 disgusting pigs, so i’m thinking that the poor victim must be in some way related to the scumbags and with her being a minor, exposing those 3 nonces faces, would give away who the poor victim is. I hate god damn paedaphiles. lets hope that bubba gives them one the arse from me. oh, I said arse, best watch my arse, damn said it again.

    These are 3 very sick individuals. who got off way to easy. The poor victim I wish nothing but the best. We can only hope that the bastard Pedos get a taste of their own medicine in prison.

    Dirty old bastards! Cleo you may not have their pictures but it looks like they come from a small community so everyone would know who they are. I really hope that the victim gains a strong feeling of self worth so that having sex with old disgusting creeps (or young ones) is no longer part of her life. I hope everyone in Shiprock rallies around the victim so she won’t be used and abused any more.

        Bengalpuss, Mike is an arsehole who deserves to be kicked in the arse so don’t worry about him. Speaking of kicking some arse, all 3 of these bastards deserve to be taken out to the top of the Shiprock and left up there for good. They are too debauched to be allowed to live in society.

          2cute, mike is just a fart in a trance, the thing that pissed me of about that cunt, is he read that post, but picked on me without even being horrified by what had been done to that poor little babies face, but i know who mike is, sort pardumb depression guy [clint] has to be the prick of an arseole he is. But i sympathise with the poor guy, he’s obviously feeling threatened by a woman, who doesn’t have post partum depression.

    As a person who was married to a Native I can say with some authority that this is not uncommon. It happens alot on the rez, they just don’t acknowledge that it goes on. Booze and drugs usually gets things started. My late husband was totally disgusted by some of the things he saw when visiting the reservation in SD and actually got in trouble with a few family members because he called authorities regarding underaged drinking and the pimping out of minors for drugs and sex. Sadly this case is far from uncommon within Native circles and they refuse to even acknowledge it. They spend a lot of time hollering about being treated fairly and how they want their land back but don’t take care of the problems within their own communities – and then they wonder why they never get anywhere with all their protesting. I miss my husband but I honestly do not miss having to deal with Indian Country.
