If someone asks him, ‘What are these wounds on your body?’ he will answer, ‘The wounds I was given at the house of my friends.’ Zech 13 v 6

Monday, March 12, 2012


There is often a progression with sexual offenders. Our case was a escalation. Patrick went from victimizing his minor siblings, to adult consensual incest with a sister. He went from peering in on mothers and daughters in their bathrooms and watching hours of pornography to sexual contact with dogs, to victimizing someone outside his family.

Not only did he victimize someone outside of his family, Patrick had the audacity to act on his deviant behavior in a home where the parents and seven other children were sleeping. Very risky. Very arrogant.

Patrick talks in his evaluation about "the thrill of the hunt." Scary.

Maddening is the only word I can think of to adequately describe how it feels to know that supporters of Patrick have purposefully chosen not to read his  psychosexual evaluation. Originally when we got word of the evaluation, we kept it pretty hush hush. People knew Patrick was court-ordered to undergo the evaluation. When word got out that the evaluation was completed, some families pushed for the elders to get a copy from Patrick and read it. The families wanted to be sure that there was no past history of sexual crimes. At first, the elders were adamant that they would not read his evaluation. Jim Cameron had made a statement that he wouldn't want everyone to know about his secret thoughts. Finally, after more pressure, the elders agreed to request that Patrick allow them to read the evaluation, but not until after the sentencing took place. 

In hindsight, that makes sense to me now, in a sick sort of way. Remember that Jim Cameron and Dave Barrueto already knew Patrick had done much more than kiss our child. They didn't need to read the evaluation to find that information out.

The evaluation is not full of Patrick's secret thoughts. It is full of Patrick's crimes and how he went about them and his thought process. It is not fantasy. It is full of actions that Patrick did to innocent minor children, to unaware mothers and daughters, and with animals. The evaluation is full of direct quotes from Patrick detailing his actions and crimes.

After the sentencing, it was possible to fill out a request form to attain a copy of Patrick's psychosexual evaluation. I know of a few families that filled out the form and did receive a copy. Patrick himself has access to a copy. But many families were not interested in the evaluation. It didn't matter to them what was in it. "They are just called to love Patrick." I cannot even pretend to understand this kind of thinking. How can these individuals help Patrick, when they don't even know what they are dealing with? How do they know what behavior to watch for, if they deny there is even a problem?

How can I get a copy of Patrick's evaluation?

This is the link to the post that gives you all the information you would need to request an evaluation.


Since the lawsuit, I am not exactly sure how easy it is to access the evaluation. Let me know if you request it and if you receive a copy of it.

Thank you for pressing past the veil that so many victimized people hind behind from fear and shame and exposing the ugly truth of this deviant behavior. People like Patrick often spend a lifetime abusing! God bless you with beauty for ashes.

Hi again...the form that it linked me to does not have exact places to put:

*Defendant/Suspect Name: Patrick David Rojas
*Policy Agency: leave blank
*Police Report Number: 2007SOOOO230
*Our File Number: 07-179136-1
*Court Case: 17913601
*Date of Incident: January 5, 2007 reported
----> Put a check in the Other box and write: Sexual psych evaluation & addendum by Dr. Joe Jensen Ph.D.

I don't see the box to put a check in either. Could this be an updated form?

Is it also public information who requests public records? I assume that it is.

The link to the pdf form is different than the one I filled out but I would put:
Patrick D. Rojas,the court case number,and file number in the section that says "If record(s) concern individual(s) other than requestor, please state

Along with naming the specific document in the Title of Records, Description, Dates of records. Does that help?
