Noble Rick Pendland Sneaks Out On Bond

How did I miss this? After almost two years in jail for molesting foster children placed in his care by the state of Kansas, Noble Rick Pendland is out on bond. There is still no reported trial date set for him. I wonder why this isn't a big story, here in Kansas......? After all, Pendland WAS a foster parent, abusing children day and night with the blessings of local schools, child protective services, and the third party contractors who managed the cases! Citizens of Kansas should be outraged about this! Pendland should not have been able to leave the jail without an angry mob following him.....but no one seems too alarmed about people who abuse their positions to take advantage of others. So as of May 30, Pendland has been out on bond. It's really hard to get Kansas to pay attention when a teacher abuses children.

CANT BELIEVE THIS GUYS OUT...SAD AND ALARMING...HOUSE ARREST AND RESTRICTED TO ARK CITY AND WICHITA FOR COURT APPEARANCES ONLY. IM WITH YOU AND WISH THIS STORY COULD HAVE GOTTEN MORE ATTENTION. sO MUCH SEXUAL ABUSE GOES ON BEHIND CLOSED DOORS ESPECIALLY TO THOSE CHILDREN WHO ARE MENTALLY, PHYSICALLY AND/OR EMOTIONALLY CHALLENGED OR WHO HAVE A HISTORY OF ABUSE IN THE HOME VICTIM OR PREP. THIS GUY IS A MASKED PERP...

Anywhere else, this story WOULD have gotten more attention. Kansas has violated the constitutional rights of parents AND children, and if advertisers for media sources in Kansas were to encourage reporters and media to cover stories about where and when Kansas has goofed, (quite possibly deliberately...human trafficking, anyone?)the status quo here in Kansas would be forced to change. I recently had my rights stomped on in Marshall County, and they dug and dug and dug in my past and present, searching very desperately for anything I may have done wrong at some point, but my past is cleaner than almost everyones' in Marshall County, and a few people are facing investigations now. I did have to swallow some of my pride and go ahead and face people who wanted to attack my character, though. It will take that kind of guts on the part of everyone in order to change things here. Otherwise, nothing will change, and people like Noble Rick Pendland will have an open ticket written to them to continue to abuse children.

Get that picture off plz that's my son and dose not need to be in the picture with him!

This picture has an innocent child who is not a foster child (not that that matters) in it. It should be cropped out. I am so livid right now. That is my god child and that needs to be taken down.

Juli Henry said...

Okay; I will crop him out. You should be aware, however; that I got the picture from the common domain.......I did not take the picture. The Wichita Eagle was the original source.

Juli Henry said...

Don't be livid with me, I got the picture from the common domain. I also do not deserve your pith and anger. If a newspaper or other media source runs a non-copyrighted image, it is not technically wrong to use it. I have no problem with hiding the child in the picture, but I do not appreciate Kansas (not my home state) acting as if I am wrong to hate communities that tolerate and welcome people like Pendland while making yours truly feel as unwelcome as possible.

If that child was not in Pendland's custody, how on earth did he get in Pendland's lap?

He is related. This was taken obviously before anyone suspected anything. We are not saying that it is okay. I am livid that he is out. And wondering who would risk 20k on bailing someone out that has run before.

Juli Henry said...

20K?! You've gotta be kidding! He should be waiting in jail, in the GENERAL POPULATION, receiving no special favors! In other states, where children actually matter, criminals who commit less serious crimes and have fewer flight risks are held for much greater amounts! It surprises me that a bail bonds company and the insurance agency backing them would even spring for Pendland under the circumstances. Go ahead and call the bail bonds company's insurance backer; both the bondsman and his insurance company should be a matter of public record. 20k is an outrage. Was the judge asleep when he signed the paperwork?

Ok; how is the picture now? When you mentioned the extremely low bond, I could not stop myself from adding to the original message.

When Rick lived in western KS the nieghborhood kids nick named him Super Cop he was always watching us. Makes me wonder who he got a hold of out there. He'll burn in hell.

Juli Henry said...

While I do not believe in hell, Karma can certainly be a bitch! Anyone could have been protecting him, for any number of reasons. Here in Marshall County, the guidance counselor of Frankfort High, Tom Schroeder, has parents who taught at Frankfort High, and they donated assets to the school, so he can get away with dropping my daughter off four miles away from the school, forgetting all about her, and going home. No one cares, unless I can make it extremely uncomfortable for the County Attorney, Laura McNish, to continue to ignore the criminal activity among her constituents. As a pleasant flipside to most of the laws in Kansas, elected officials are not protected from libel and slander, so it's okay to write about them, no matter how much they try to scare you, and their privacy is also not protected, as a private citizen's is. That's pretty cool, isn't it?

Does anyone know what is going on with his trial? What's taken so long on getting him to trial?

Juli Henry said...

It certainly HAS taken a long time, hasn't it? My guess is that he convinced a judge that he has "found Jesus" while incarcerated, and is a "changed man", and is currently intimidating witnesses or bribing whoever has custody of the evidence, while he is out on bond. Does anyone remember his missing posters? Letting him bond out in the first place was crazy.

The tragedy is in cases such as this you never know the truth. Said truth is held between the accused and plaintiffs. Currently act as an agent of the state, outside of Kansas. This case caught my attention due because its where I'm from. When this many sex related crimes are charged and then the perp (Mr. Pendland) is released for basically time served, it means the States Case was very weak. Trust me in a small county such as Cowley, the prosecution wants to move forward with 95% of these cases if there is a <50% chance of a guilty verdict. Remember DA ( district attorneys) are elected officials. Thank about that before we render judgement. It's easy to join a lynch mob with torches in hand; its far harder to try and know the truth. Much less understand it.

Believe whatever you wish. There have been too many complaints about that creep over the years and I am inclined to believe that the actual truth is actually not between the testimony of the defendant and the victims, but something actually worse than the victims can even remember. Many of them were small children during their encounters with this man. "Agents of the state" did nothing but intimidate witnesses prior to the warrant for his arrest. And if he was truly innocent, why did he disappear shortly be the warrant was issued? If he did not think or know there was a reason for him to go to prison, why did the thought of hiding out for months on end even occur to him? I think it's important to render judgment so we can all do a better job of protecting our children.
