Humboldt County Superior Court Judge Kaleb Cockrum sentenced John Robert Beideman to 16 years in state prison after Beideman entered into a plea agreement with the Humboldt County District Attorney’s Office. The 58-year-old Beideman, who created the story-telling character ‘Carpathian’ and told spooky stories to children in the hope they wouldn’t be scared of monsters, was arrested in October 2017 and pleaded no contest to the continuous sexual abuse of a child that began when the victim, Jane Doe, was five years old. A no contest plea is treated as a guilty plea in criminal court and Beideman, who was given credit for 501 days time served, must serve 85 percent of the sentence before becoming eligible for parole because of the seriousness of the offenses. John Robert Beideman was sentenced to 16 years in state prison on Friday after pleading no contest to the ongoing sexual abuse of a minor over the course of three and a half years. Jane Doe, her mother and her mother’s current husband all read victim impact statements to Cockrum detailing the harm Beideman caused to Jane Doe and her family due to his actions. “I placed the blame on myself believing I had done something to make him molest me,” Jane Doe, now 18, said. “I knew finding out would cause my mother pain. In school, I was ostracized and I lost the ability to relate to people and make friends. I spent my formative years struggling to survive.” Jane Doe went on to describe the emotional, psychological and physical harm inflicted on her by Beideman, telling Cockrum she had cut herself, that she could not focus on school due to the inner turmoil she wrestled with on a daily basis. “I began to have nightmares and I developed an eating disorder and I began to see a therapist in my senior year in high school and now I require antidepressants,” Jane Doe said. Jane Doe said she was fearful of telling her mother about the abuse she suffered at the hands of Beideman. Jane Doe’s mother, who was married to Beideman when the abuse occurred, described the disturbing actions Beideman took to remain in contact with Jane Doe once the divorce was finalized. “When the defendant and I divorced, he actually sued me for visitation rights to my child,” the mother said. “The court denied him, but he still continued to email me. He sent cards on the first day of school, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, her birthday and they continued despite pleas for him to stop. I was always reminded there was a man out there trying to gain access to my young daughter. He would not take no for an answer and boxes upon boxes of cards and letters were found when they searched his apartment.” Jane Doe’s mother went on to say Beideman actually believed he was going to have some sort of relationship with her daughter and instead only exacerbated the issues her daughter endured as she grew up, initially keeping the abuse to herself until it manifested emotionally, physically and psychologically. “He wanted to wait until she was 18 so he could tell his side of the story,” Jane Doe’s mother scoffed at one point. “She lived with this abuse and kept it inside her and it nearly destroyed her. She had suicidal thoughts, there was cutting, panic attacks. It kept us hyper-aware there was a man lying in wait for my daughter, the feeling there was a monster lying in wait. He was grooming her for that moment.” Beideman appeared in court wearing orange jail-issued clothing and he stood next to his attorney, Russell Clanton, in the jury box. Clanton informed Cockrum that Beideman had prepared a statement he wished to read a request Cockrum granted with the caveat that he would only address the court and no one else in the courtroom. Beideman flatly denied all the charges, claimed he was unjustly accused and forced into a plea deal in the face of a life sentence if he was convicted at trial. He claimed that all it took was an accusation to find him guilty and that he would never get a fair shake. “I’m not a pedophile, I’m not a molester, not an abuser of children,” Beideman said to audible gasps from those in the gallery, which included family members of the victim and more than a dozen members of Bikers Against Child Abuse. “I made the most difficult decision of my life and make no mistake, I would only accept a deal in which I pleaded no contest. I’m an innocent man and I have been sentenced for crimes I did not commit.” Cockrum soon cut Beideman off, ending his statement and then made a statement of his own before imposing the sentence. “That’s enough,” Cockrum said. “I don’t think I have seen a more disgusting display. I will accept the probation report and find it’s an appropriate sentence Mr. Beideman serve 16 years in state prison.” Cockrum then spoke directly to Jane Doe, stating, “I recognize the bravery it took to come forward and the bravery it took to speak today,” Cockrum said. “I understand why you accepted the plea deal and I respect it.” Cockrum then read out the sentence, asked the attorneys if there was anything else and closed the hearing. Deputy District Attorney Stacey Eads, who prosecuted the case, made a short statement following the hearing. “What can be said after (the victim impact statements), you know? I hope (Jane Doe is) better off — that’s what this is about,” Eads said before turning her attention to Beideman. “It was with great reluctance that I entered into this resolution and generally no contest is something I normally will not accept. But again, trying to convey that his perception of reality is so distorted that to think that he will accept responsibility for his actions and acknowledge there was wrongfulness in it is an expectation that will never be fulfilled.” Dan Squier can be reached at 707-441-0528.

The Lady in the Blue Box

Continued from previous post… When something doesn’t go my way, if someone slams a door in my face, I normally resort to extreme conclusions- “Oh I’ll just give up.” “Oh I’m fucked/ doomed/ screwed.” “Oh I’m such a failure.” On my 30th birthday, I realized that as a woman with no job, no income, no […]
