Joe Ruhren talks about how he is an ex-cop and is now running JOJO's icecream to give back to the community, LIAR! Thanks but no thanks we don't need a drug addict that commits fraud writing prescriptions to serve our kids.

I think the important thing to remember is that JoJo DOES do so much for the community. He is always giving freely to Graham Park Middle and Triange Elementary. Very few of us could honestly say that we don't have some sort of issue, addiction, vice, or problem. It kills me how when someone who is well known in a community gets caught for doing something wrong ... it all of a sudden is a big deal. Joe is a human being ... just as we all are. He made a mistake ... just like we all do. I don't think ANYONE would want a blog posted on the Internet bashing them for their wrong-doings ... so let's not do this to someone else. Whatever happened to the Golden Rule?? In my eyes, Joe will always be a great community figure. There is a lot of good in him ... please don't forget that!

Yes, people make mistakes but this guy is hiring/working with teenagers and serving young kids while committing fraud and under the influence of drugs. Sorry but he's not a very good influence getting arrested in front of young adults your suppose to be inspiring. Oh, and he has ten counts of prescription fraud not just one or two. That means he has committed forgery like ten times! Way to go, just who we need our kids looking up to.

I knew he was weird! No ice cream is good enough to give this loser my money! If you forge prescriptions and use drugs you shouldn't be serving the public. Dumfries and Triangle can find icecream somewhere with a drug free atmosphere. You should be digging ditches or making license plates you fool! People don't give your money to JOJO!

Those who really know Joe Ruhren, have witnessed Joe continously giving to Prince William County Schools and kids over the years and personally know he is a wonderful and kind person. However, Joe is human and apparently got addicted to prescription medication - something that happens to even good people. We all make mistakes - one thing I have learned over the years is those who so freely critize others without knowing the true facts are normally those you DON'T want as friends. This is also a lesson we want our kids to learn. Those are the friends who will not have your back has you journey thru yourlife.

You guys hide behind your name because you hate him and wish the worst for him. HOWEVER What a good good guy and he didn't forged anything at all he was abusing his own medicine he was prescribed for the past 7 years. You guys are a joke. He is well loved and liked and he has shared his addiction with everyone he knows. I'm sure those who wrote a bad comment has family memebers with the same problems if not worse.......be real!!!

Well he obviously got his drugs he needed illegally somehow.....possilby by altering the prescription amount no doubt, and that is illegal. people like him make those who really need medication suffer. If he knew he was addicted for 7 years, he could have checked himself into a rehab progam to kick his addiction and he should have, if he did, he wouldn't be in jail right now. Anyone can go to the courthouse and read the file and its contents.....it's for public viewing.

I wonder now what his mother would think of her precious Jo Jo if she were alive.

What are you going to tell your kids? We'll get icecream as soon as JoJo gets out of jail. That's nice. I guess JoJo's Soft Serve will be closed unitl JoJO's Times Served.

First off, addiction is addiction. It doesn't matter if he was taking the medicine for 7 years or 7 days. He obviously had an addiction to something. The WHOLE story doesn't matter. He was charged with F-R-A-U-D. He illegally either wrote his own prescriptions or he illegally changed the amount that he was alotted on his prescriptions. It doesn't matter if it was for penicillan or xanax. What he did was illegal and he should sit in jail and serve his time. I just think they should take the money from his business to pay for him being there and not from the tax payers.

Litsen, this is Mr. Jo Jo himself, I will no longer add to such comments nor attempt to explain myself everytime there is a posting. Lets make things clear. Yes I was A police office for 13 yrs,amd in that time I have witnessed more then you can only imagin. When I got out, my nighmares became worse and thats when I began taken a legal--sleeping pill. But after 7 years I was told by my docotor that I needed to stop, I was becoming to dependent on them. Right after, my 19 year old nehew was killed in Iraq and I was asked by my family to veiw the photos to make certain it was him in fact. Then soon, my brother-inlaw hung himself in my nepew bedroom, seems like my nightmares never went away.
I did seek help over and over, but nothing worked. My arrest charges sounded bad, but the medicine I obtained were for me, and not FORGED and not for anyone else thats been proven, Its just that you can only see one doctor when getting the NON-NARCOTIC MEDICINE. sO, ALTHOUGH i BROKE THE LAW HURTING ONLY MYSELF, i AGREED TO SERVE 2 MONTHS AND 2 WEEKS IN JAIL. jO jO'S WAS ALWAYS MY NUMBER ONE CONCERN AND THE KIDS THat CONTINUE TO WORK FOR ME. I WAS DEALING WITH MANY PROBLEMS, BUT I HAVE OVER COME THOSE DEMONS NOW, GODS WITH ME NOW AND THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE ALWAYS LOVE AND CARED FOR ME. TO THE MANY OF PEOPLE WHO RUIN MY NAME,(OR TRIED TO i'M SURE U KNOW NOTHING ABOUT MY GOOD CHARACTER AND WHO I AM. I HAVE DONE SO MUCH FOR SO MANY AND YOUR HATFUL WORDS WILL NEVER CHANGE THAT, SO, NO MORE WRITING,, BELIEVE ALL THAT GOSSIP IF U WILL, BUT JUST KNOW you too have deep deep secrets too this is a fact. My business will still stand strong because I'm loved and I'm a fighter.....the end for good!

I think the best, most responsible thing Joe should do at this time is to tell his young employees to learn to be smart by looking at the bigger picture,beyond Jojo's employment, for their life,listen to their parents who have their best interest, not be reckless just because they become 18,and let go of his personal need to be their mentor/rescuer/idol/boss!Joe has demons to deal with and he uses these young infuential boys to justify his need for purpose.If he really wants to change he would work with their parents not against them.

I must add this in regard to the message from "parents" that are telling these young people to listen to their parents;;;;; I have known Joe during most of his adult life and the majority of young people he mentors is because they are lacking something from their home life; mostly because their parents are not available or do not have the time to deal with difficulties their young teens are experiencing. Joe has taken the time and effort to "save" numerous young people that are now outstanding young citizens. Go to JoJOs and check them out - some of the nicest and polite young people you will ever meet. and they are loyal to Joe because he listened and took time with them when their parents didn't. He also encourages all of them to remain in school, further their education and to be good young people. So please take a look at yourself "parents"....

First off.....the posters Great and Jonathan and Serve are all the same person on this board. The email addresses are Gray0989@aol.com and Gray0809@aol.com, and no doubt are Joe himself or someone who is behind him in his antics.

Second off.....drugs are drugs....whether you buy them off the street or forge perscriptions or go to many doctors to get perscriptions to enable your habit. It's all illegal. And a cop of 14 years SHOULD KNOW BETTER. There is no excuse. We have rehab centers and detox centers to go and dry out.

How can a drug abuser mentor children is what I want to know. It's like speaking out of your mouth and your a$$ at the same time. You talk against drugs but you take and abuse them at the same time? What part of this picture is wrong here? Especially since it's been going on for 7 years.

Family members die all the time, some by very tragic means. Others don't turn to drugs to ease the pain.....it's like alcohol.....a crutch and an excuse to justify the addiction. And it shows that the addicted person is a WEAK person.

I am sorry, but this guy should not be allowed around children of any age.....who knows what type of influence he has on our children.

There was a time when JoJo acted all high and mighty and could do no wrong.....he had an "image" to upkeep. He was going to make something of himself and do better than his older brothers and sisters did for themselves (who ended up being non-working welfare bums living off of others). What happend to that image now?

I for one will not be patronizing this establishment and giving my hard earned money to a drug addicted person!!!! Nor would I ever allow my children anywhere near that place or him.

On another note....regarding deaths in the family. Yes it was sad that JoJo's nephew was killed while on duty with the reserves, but he wasn't the only one who has died serving our country.

What I find sad is that the mother of this fallen soldier is now suppossedly having fundraisers in memory of him.....but who is really really getting the money? Thousands of thousands are being raised and where does it go? To her clothes, vehicles and motorcycles she has? This woman hasn't held down a real job in all of her life....expecting others to pay her way.

Well, just another example of the dregs of society.

How can he mentor young people?....the same way he has done for years, by being a friend who listens to them and provides them guidance when no one else does. As far as how can he mentor young people with his past addiction? the same way AA has been successful for many years, they teach by their own past addiction.

Also,.I am so glad many of you won't be at Jo Jos, because it will be a few less people in that continuous long line to get the BEST ice cream in PW County.

Just how many of these Joe is a great guy blogs are really Joe. They speak the the same speak. Which would support the obvious that he still just doesn't get it.He can't buy honorable reputation by giving ice cream away or appearing overly generous to compensate for his inadequacies.Really Joe...you need to forgive yourself,understand who you are and why and then accept yourself.If you love yourself first then you can reach out and give appropriately without expectations of love, acceptance,consequences,returns or dissappointment. You have got the right idea just not from a complete process of positive emerging experiences.

I have been investigating this guy for a few years for a client who is the birth sibling of the same mother as Joe Ruhren, but was giving up for adoption. I found out stuff that would make your head spin about the psychology of this criminal. From his childhood, to his career in the police force and life after basically being given a chance to leave the force honorably before the truth came out. If u live in the same area as him, I would watch your kids. I could only say in my opinion that he is a "Sociopath", that stuff he wrote about the death of Family members is true but in the span of 2004-2010, his mental distress is fake as he never even went to the wedding of his sister, who's husband recently killed himself. Indeed by hanging, in his own sons room that fact is true, but it was not the first time he had tried to kill himself "Danny" the brother inlaw in question had a history of psychiatric problems as well as drug abuse. The women Joe used to help him in this crime of drug addiction were sucked in and he has now ruined there lives, a couple rehabs and lots of lies later, he is only getting the tip of what is to come. Guys like this only re-offend.

I just have a comment for "investigator". You said "If you live in the same area as him, I would watch your kids". If you know something about this man, even allegedly, then you need to let the public know so they can protect their children. NOTHING is worse than a child molester!! This message board is used to keep our neighbors informed of issues and people like this. After reading several of the posts you are not alone in mentioning him with children. "Highlander" said "Jo-Jo used to inspire a lot of kids....especially behind closed doors...". Listen up parents this is enough to warn me and hopefully you to keep your children away from JoJo's Soft Serve, and please don't allow them to work there. Did anyone read the comment directly from Mr. JoJo himself? The police academy must not require much schooling because he can't spell and writes like a second grader. He said that he agreed to serve two months and two weeks in jail. This is not true, he was sentenced to that! You can see under Stafford County court records after being sentenced he filed a motion to reconsider and it was denied. So at this point I can see that Mr. JoJo is a liar and is trying to cover up to make JoJo's Soft Serve look good. Sorry but I'm too educated in law and criminal psychology to fall your notions. Parents you can never keep your children too safe. Everyday you see how an innocent child is abducted from a person they subconciously know and is never seen again. I WON'T have my children in line to get ice cream and subject them to the unknown.

Jhon54:

You seem to write in the same style as those other idiots who are pretending to be others but really Mr. Jo Jo himself. The spelling and grammar give it away and so does your sentence structure.

Now I just wonder if the Dumfries Police Department was called and questioned as to the reason for the "exit" of the "GOR" (Great Officer Ruhren), I wonder what they would say about him and what his fellow officers and Town Hall members would say about "GOR".

Before "GOR" became "GOR", he was in Maintenance at Melrose Apartments. He was like the "Pied Piper" with all the little boys following him.....he was taking them to the Gym on base and doing things with them, he loved the attention he was getting from these little boys, but it makes one sit up and wonder what the hell he was really doing with these little boys? Funny as it is, alot of these boys are now grown men and don't have a nice thing to say about Mr. JoJo and would not partake of his establishment.

I still stand on my opinion that I would not enable someone who is a drug addict, a liar, and possibly an unsavory character, by giving my hard earned money (earned the LEGAL WAY) to his establishment.

I grew up with "GOR" and in highschool he was weird and is still weird.

We are very close friends with joe himself and before you go bashing learn yes he was on sleeping pill for seven years it was the last 2 years was the addiction, joe is a great role model and he will always be close to me and my family.

joes is a great guy wiehter or not he fell on his face he is right back to the old jojo. he is still that same carring and giving person he will aslways be. ive known this man since i was 10 now im 21 and i was with him through his rough times not once did he offer anything to kids and wouldnt give one to you if you couldnt sleep. he would never give any to the kids because he was still a role model and didnt one anyone to end up with an addiction. Also if any of you guys suffered from insomnia and some one told you this pill will put you to sleep you would start coming dependant on them to.

Oh please, those of us who really know JoJo know exactly how he is....WEIRD! He would bring the boys to the gym on the pretense of "teaching them to wrestle" when really he got his jollies out of giving them wedgies and getting their attention. If the parents of the boys really knew what was going on, they wouldn't have let their kids within 100 feet of this freak. He thought he was a father figure to these boys.....hardly. A role model....not likely! I'm glad I didn't have a son because if I did, I would have been calling the child abuse hotline.

It must be nice to be so perfect! I think it's a shame to cast judgement on a person fighting an addiction. I think people should be held accountable for his actions and he was. Almost every restaurant and grocery store employs convicted criminals, addicts, ex-addicts and even work release inmates. I guess you should just stay home and make your own food.

Obviously you folks who are praising Joe and his works don't really know him. I've lived in Melrose for years and have witnessed the antics of the Ruhren family. First off, you got Mama Ruhren who hooks up with an army soldier just to get her green card and come to America. She then has 5 kids to the army guy and he takes off.....wonder why? Then mama has three more kids to other men but gives him the soldier's last name when they are not even his. The first 5 kids are in and out of the system for one reason or another......DUI's, fights, drugs, you name it. One moves away to start a new life (on a dance pole). One hooks up with a Marine and gets knocked up and keeps the child away from his father (that would be Davey Boy's mom - we'll get to her later). Joe becomes a maintenance man at Melrose and his company is questionable (people often wondered if he was a little "queer") and he befriends all the little boys in Melrose, taking them places and doing goodness knows what to them and with them. Maybe you mothers and dads of the boys Joe hung out with should ask these boys what went on during that time. Joe has aspirations of becoming a cop, doing rides with the Dumfries police and Prince William County Police....and low and behold, somehow he becomes a cop. But then, all of a sudden, Joe's a cop no moe.....what happened? Does anyone know the truth? Has anyone questioned why he's not on the Dumfries Police Force any more?

Then comes JoJo's place.....where he is in the company of young kids again. A Mentor you say???? I don't think so. No one has ever seen or heard of Joe being in the company of a woman....only boys. No one has ever heard of Joe having a girlfriend....just the little boys. What does that tell you? Again, parents need to ask their boys who have had contact with JoJo what really went on.

As for "Davey Boy's" Mama.....she didn't raise Davey. Her mother did. Davey was just a cash cow, a meal ticket....money. And if came the time she did have to watch her son, she would scream and holler at him all the time. She did not give him a fulfilling life. How could she, sitting on the porch or laying on the couch all the time smoking her cigarettes and drinking her pop. She never worked while Davey Boy was growing up.....she took from her Mama, her friends, the men she would sleep with and scam them into moving in with her....all of them from the Marine base at Quantico (she loves men in uniform - must be the benefits she thinks she will get from them and their money). All the while not letting Davey Boy know his father and grandparents in Illinois......or only sending him out once a year so he can get a new wardrobe for school. This is how Davey Boy grew up.....being raised really by his grandmother and not his mother. But when Davey Boy went to the service.....then his mother decided she wanted to be known as the soldier's mother......she made sure she was in the newspaper article before he was killed overseas and it became ad nauseam all the times we saw her picture after Davey Boy gave his life for America along with the Mason boy from King George. But Davey Boy's mother made it "all about her". She gave interviews, cried fake tears all for sympathy.....she even got money for Davey Boy's death and what did she do with it.....who knows. She stared "rides" in memory of Davey Boy and then she has a new motorcycle and joins a motorcycle club.....and now she's on vacation down south....it's all on Facebook folks.....all on the internet. No doubt the rides support Davey Boy's mother, when in fact it should be going to scholarships and charaties.

And there is JoJo with the drug problem, Davey Boy's mother thinking everyone should owe her, one older brother who thinks older women should take care of him, another older brother who's been in and out of jail, the older sister who is also on Facebook posting pictures of what she is doing, and then the three younger ones, you don't hear anything about them.....maybe they got smart and lead quiet lives.

History repeats itself.......but keep your sons away from JoJo and his establishment.

What a Joke,,,I'm lol and lol,,,,this is a good good man. I love the fact that every single person gets to hide behind a fake screen name or name. My name is John and I have worked with Joe for so many years and watched him become the best of the best.
Best Cop, Best Business owner and yes, a great Role Model. Not a single person, not one, can say Joe has done anything wrong with any children he has come in contact with. WHO even made this an issue? Oh, yea, the ones who can't stand him or the ones who hates him ever since his job in Law Enforcment.
Well, it's not my place to explain anything, but its so funny how a person can fall victim of his own addiction, not hurt anyone but himself, and then all the haters can do is talk about protect your kids....don't let your kids around him....come on, spare me. This man had mentor so many, given so much, has been the best man in 3 of those he mentored and all you haters can do is accuse him of something that was never looked into or talked about,,,,,because their is no truth to the matter!!!! Just Haters.....Now, I know the same 3 people who keeps switching screen names will pretend they know everything about this man, but please, know this, he does not have an adopted brother, he does not mess with kids and he is a great person, with a great business, only YOU haters wish you could've mask what he has done in the past 20 years, but you can't, so you sit and write hate blogs about this man (again, behind a fake name) good by haters, I'm sure Joe could careless about these blogs, ummmm he's got far big of lines at his shop to worry about your assumtion about him.

Real estate records show how much he paid for his house. Where did he get the money? Surely not from selling "frozen fake milk".

I think it's time that the cards are on the table and the truth be exposed about JoJo.

Hate has nothing to do with it. a reporter should FOI the records from the DPD on this guy. Why was Joe's computer seized and how did that relate to the scandal at the DPD where the sex crimes officer computers were seized? Who did Joe inherit millions of dollars from? Some one should talk the surviving members of his benifactor's family. Court records may give you the names of the ladies children. We should worry about the character of any person that employees children and has a captive clientel of children.

Seems like everyone who writes the hate letter would love to know why he left the Department,,,I BET ALL OF YOU, that you wouldn't dare ask him and should you do, prepare for the fact you WILL look stupid because he left with Honor<<<<<the truth. Furthermore, he was asked to come back and he declined.

Man oh man,You talk about him with kids (nothing was accused in this area) what, the man can't open an Ice Cream Shop? Now you talk about his riches and a computer seized,,ummmmm, strange, but the only officers I know accused of sex crimes was John Chapman former PWC/DP. Please HATERS (as one person put it) you will gain nothing by you hate letter/blogs.

JOE!!! If you are reading this, we love you (all 77 of us) you are the best of the best!!!! Please don't wast your time reading something that's so untrue. You made many arrest, and you pissed off alot of folks when you struck it rich.....let them keep guessing about who the TRUE person you are.

UMMMM Again, joe getting fired from DPD LMAO he was the best Detective the town could ever hope to keep. Officer of the year, Valor award, best business owner, now I can see why people hate you YOU'RE GREEEEET!

Okay....setting the record straight. JoJo grew up and didn't have a pot to piss in or a window to throw it out. His brothers and sisters are loosers, welfare bums. Somehow, he managed to make it through the police academy and went to work for Dumfries. He thought he was hot shit, arresting folks for the same things he was doing himself. Enemies....oh yeah, lots of them. The little boys way back when, find them and talk with them....McGrath, Nicholson, just to name a few of them. See what light they shed on the mentoring. Joe coming into money.....probably from that old lady he befriended and would help take care of up on the hill in between Dumfries and Triangle. That's where he got the dog. And if he was in possession of such a windfall.....how's come that didn't keep him from going to jail?

Check records in Stafford GDC...new charges for this upstanding person.....drving while suspended license and leaving the scene of an accident. Guess police training didn't sink in with him.....he just got his license back and it's restricted too. Guess he can put the bicycle away.

Joe Ruhren, you are a joke, a big joke.

Let me first reply by saying the family is not "welfare bums", and I really don't know where you get your information on the family. Yes, there may be a couple of "less than savory characters", but for the most part the family are good, hard working people, that have done well for themselves. No one in this family is on welfare, I know that for a fact!! Trashing JoJo is one thing, but characterizing the family as "welfare bums" is simply not true.There isn't one family member living off of the system.

No Joe's not in jail....he just got his driver''s license back - restricted. That was after he fled the scene of an accident and drove without a license. That hearing is still coming up.

If he's such a great cop, then he should know law about publishing people's name and slander of his fellow prior officers.

And he needs to go back to learn spelling and proper sentences and punctuations.

Alright I'll tell you guys a story about this (not so) great cop, Joseph Ruhren aka "JoJo.":

I found his AOL Instant Messenger screen name off of the website of some guy who somehow managed to find it. This "cop" had an away message up that said something like "brb i'm in the hottub and sorry if you don't own one LOL LOL" Is that how a 30+ year old man should type? Well being the 17-year-old immature kid I was, I ended up sending him an IM. I was going to try to tell him about his screenname being on somebody's website and he started acting like a little kid by calling me names like "loser", "dummy", "dork", etc. He kept telling me to go away and when I didn't, he started saying that he would get a subpoena on my computer and a search warrant saying he was going to come find me. When he called me son, I said "I'm not your f***ing son" and he acted like someones little sibling by saying "uh oh you just said a bad word"

Surprisingly, he found me at my High School about three months later. I was called down to security office and he was there. When I met with "JoJo" he was the most unprofessional, arrogant, disrespectful excuse for a police officer that I ever met. JoJo had me follow him into the next room and showed me a paper that said I am being charged with a Class 1 misdemeanor "Harassment by Computer". This loser actually saved our AIM convo and printed it out as "evidence". He proceeded to tell me how he was in the right and I was in the wrong. Here is the most shocking and disturbing part of all: He pulled out a photo of me holding my cat and when I asked where he got that from, he said "From your computer." I asked myself why this guy even needed a picture of me. He couldn't argue that it was because he didn't know my name. If he could break into my computer in a creepy manner, he can find my name. There was no need for the picture. I shudder to think what he did to the picture at his house. I wasn't arrested, but he called my dad at his work and told him what I did. I told my dad about this guy beforehand, so he wasn't hugely surprised that he got a call from him. The only thing that surprised my dad was that JoJo turned out to be a real cop. I remember I had to go to some mediation program and met up with some lady (and the Cop himself didn't even show up). Overall, nothing happened to me. No jail, juvenile detetion or anything like that.

JoJo was (and still is) a disgrace to good police officers everywhere. Some may argue that I shouldn't have messaged him, but that's not the point. He should've been the more mature one between us and just ignored my messages, not get butthurt like a little kid and come find me like a stalker. I am 100% confident that had I sued him, I would've easily won and the judge would've ripped him a new one.

However, I will say that I don't think he's an actual pedophile. I think he just likes being in the company of boys (just a little too much). My guess is he has no chance of fathering a son (since women likely think he's a creep), so he wants to befriend other little boys like they are his own son. But I will say that if he ever was charged or convicted of being a pedo, it would not shock me in the slightest.

So before you "JoJo" supporters start saying that we are "haters", take it from somebody who has met Mr. Ruhren and seen how arrogant, disrespectful, and creepy he is. I saw right through his facade and you people who support this guy and buy his crappy ice cream will see through his facade, too.

And say what you will people love, trust and respect this man because they know the person he is.

PLEASE stop hidding behind a fake name haters, Joe has nothing to hide and never has anyone accused him of doing wrong to anyone,,,,haters love to ruin a name over something stupid...his own personal problems. Just once I wish you could prove of his wrong doing to anyone. AT LEAST I didn't destroy my hard drive,,,,why,,,because he has nothing to hide, unlike this punk TDM (I get joe to provide his real name very soon....who admitted to destroying his hard drive for downloading kiddie porn and then called his daddy for help when thigs got deep!

So you see, everyone who writes bad things about this guy either been arrested or had a negative run-in with him when he was a cop. Not one person can say he's done any I MEAN any wrong doing to the teenage kids he's helped better themselves.

He's loved by so many people.....and why is he the talk of the town, because people hate him and make up lies lies,,,,,but just like jo jo found this punk, he has hired an attorney and will track down all those who made false claims against him which are not true. Other then his own personal addiction to his medicine. Trust me He got this punk TDM he'll find you to and sue Defamation of character and trust me he has a private investigator.

Looks like he protesteth a little to much. I guess since he has so much money to "throw" away on filing suits against everyone who looks at him funny, he should do something more productive and benefical with the money he has. Donate it to a charity, start a foundation, give to the homeless, pregnancy shelters, domestic abuse shelters, schools for books and supplies, to churches, hospitals for research. He should be more selfless instead of selfish.

But if he did that, he wouldn't get all the attention he is starving for.

My family has known Joe for over 18 yrs. He has the biggest heart and has always done what ever he can to see to it that those that love him are taken care of.

He has had a very hard life and made that struggle a dream come true.
Nobody knows this man other then those who really knowns him,,,,,,he's never ever hurt anyone and I think its so funny that his own addiction forced all those who received a ticket, arrested ect to talk bad about my friend Joe. Joe knows about this site, he has even commented on it, but he could care less whats said about him. He's made a mistake (god knows, I'm sure you wouldn't want you infor aired everytime you or your husband, family memembers done something wrong, but, like I said, its only those who are so jeleouse of him and all they talk about is how did he become a cop,or how he got rich or a great business owner ect ect. My husband took his life not to long ago and the things this man done for me and my children were amazing. He does give so much to everyone including schools and churches. Anyone local will know this.No more comments should be made by any TRUE friends or family members at Joes request. This site just fuels people like TDM, which I understand his name will be provided, just like Joe name was and false accusations made against him, rather in the case of TDM who was crying according to Joe, and when asked for his computer, he agreed to turn it over (remember he admitted above, that Joe located him and charged him with computer crimes) so you got to believe that he addmitted that he downloaded kiddie porn. If he did this at 17 yrs of age, you know he still has this on his mind......its guys like this Joe understands would lie and make up stories about him, but hey, TDM your name will be listed as well, so the public can be warned about (what you like to surf on the web) research will be made as to where you live so your neighbors will know as well. And for the rest of the ones who accused this man of wrong doing, with simply no proof AND you never will, you will be located as well. No more comments please from Joes friends, he's already has his agents looking into all those who made false statements against him and which may have caused Defamation of character. Before I end this, Does TDM want to tell everyone who you are before it gets blasted here soon? ummm I'm sure you won't, but you'll be doing many families and area kids some good.....they can watch you like you did on your computer before you destroyed your computer.

DEAR MELROSE NATIVE-

You have to be a nasty worthless person to sit on you're obese ass and talk about my Grandmother that passed away from cancer. Who does that? Who thinks it's ok to talk about a women in a disrecpectful way that suffered the way she did. She raised 9 kids, who else do you know that has done that? Don't talk about my grandmother and my daughters great grandmother that way. It's disgusting and you look like the idiot that needs to get you're shit together. You're parents should of had an abortion with you, done us all a favor.

Get off my uncle's nuts, what are you some crazy old cat lady jojo wouldn't go out with? Awwww did he break you're heart and all you have now is a tub of ice cream from jojo's soft serve... lol He's had girl friends, i've met them. One was a teacher, so stop making things up. I don't understand why people say he's interested in boys, if he did anything with any of them then which one pressed charges on him then? Come on who.. Oh it's all bullshit hear say... That's right. As much as you know about my family's jobs and this and that you would think someone would press charges on you for being a psycho stalker. Yea Jojo got into some trouble, ok what's it anyone's business but his? What does a pill charge have to do with freaking ice cream? You all pop some kind of pills and you want to judge him because he fell on hard times got caught up in something he couldn't find a way out of? Wow, people make me sick. Instead of helping each other and the community you sit on your high horse thinking your better then everyone and you've never needed help or had a problem that you didn't know how to fix. It's disgusting. You know what, maybe you people are right. Who wants to help people in a community that act like you assholes?

Davey lived with Sonja to, I stayed with my cousin and my aunt for awhile years before he went into the service. See you don't know what the hell your talking about, you just want to talk shit on the Ruhren's but before you do get your facts straight. What happened? Did one of us slap your face off? Didn't want anything to do with you? Or did your parents just raise a miserable fuck that still lives in grannys basement?

And by the way, you only wish you were pimp like my dad and could get with rich women. so FUCK YOU

It doesn't matter that this joker was a good cop bad cop or what type of cop. It doesn't matter how good or bad influence he was on kids in the past.

HE WAS ARRESTED FOR PRESCRIPTION FRAUD. HE KNEW THE LAW (HE WAS A COP REMEMBER) AND HE DISOBEYED THE LAW.

For those of you who are singing his praises.....go sing somewhere else.

HE IS A CONVICTED FELON.......END OF DISCUSSION

Poor Shannon.......did you make your online reservation to visit your Uncle Joe in Rahappannock Regional Jail this week? Remember, only two visitors at a time and you must be dressed decently....no tank tops, no mini skirts and no shorts and make sure you keep your belly covered up.

LOLOLOLOL.

As someone who has a lot of knowledge of Joe personally, and as a mother of a child that was befriended by Joe at the age of 15, I have no doubt that the above story is true. I have seen what Joe is capable of and I have emails to back it up. Thank goodness he has finally been caught. At least I know I won't hear from him again . . . .

You need to contact the authorities that are charging JoJo and provide them with what you have and know.

This creep needs to be kept off the streets for good.

Hopefully all the victims he abused will finally come forth.

Well Shannon, now all of Virginia knows what a POS your perverted uncle is. Still going to sing his praises? Maybe when his mugshot is on the National Sexual Offenders Website???

I bed you are so proud of your uncle now......and so is the rest of your worthless family. It all started with Grandma....remember that.

I think it is so sad that for 2 years people have been calling him a pedophile and saying he molests children. However, no one ever came forward or told the police anything that they knew. What kind of world do we live in that people just decide to keep their mouths shut in real life and hide behind online blogging. My family has known JoJo for years. And yes he has done so many wonderful things in the community and for our children. That doesn't give him the right to put his hands on children. The drugs are one thing but a molester is another. Its sickening to think about how many other boys are out there that have been to afraid to come forward. Hopefully they will now.

It's no surprise that this scumbag was finally caught. Everybody, including him unfortunately, is innocent until proven guilty. But I can honestly say that I do believe he is guilty, and he will be getting a "banana split" in jail, and not the kind at his crappy ice cream shack. For the record, that shack needs to close down when he is found guilty.

That is all.

I don't live in Va anymore so I was shocked to find out from a friend the latest charges involving Joe. I have known Joe since he was 14 and always found him to be kind, generous, and helpful. I don't believe these latest charges for a minute. You people have been posting innuendos on this blog for years. Some of it so direct, it is punishable by law. Look up lible and slander in the dictionary for most of u too dumb to know u are breaking the law. Some idiot reading these postings gets delusions of grandour and is greedy and sick enough to come up with this. And u have no-one to blame but yourselves and your malicious gossip. God, what sanctimonious scumbags u people are.
As for saying anything about Sonja, Mr. Rosen and "investigator" you crossed the line. I will be giving Sonja the number of my attorney and he will find her a good attorney in D.C. And u can deal with them. Hope u have a lot of irrefutable proof or u two scumbags will lose your shirts. See, I once was also a "loser" from Melrose and met Sonja right after she returned from Illinois, when both our sons were babies. So let me set the record straight on Sonja. First, the sperm donar,AKA so-called dedicated dad was abusive. Second it was this lowlife's own parents who would not let him see Davey when he was there visiting. I know this because I have met Davey's grandmother Chris several times and she told me. How could she have told me? Because she would actually visit her grandson and Davey did go to them every summer. I did the same with my son and his paternal grandparents. Anna did not raise Davey. Sonja worked two jobs to make sure he had everything in life. If anything, she spoiled him. Everything she did was for him. Anna babysat while Sonja worked as any caring grandmother would. Sonja has NEVER been on welfare and I'm pretty sure none of the other brothers and sisters have either. Sonja also never had a guy live with her. She was in a 10 year relationship with someone in their own home that they both paid for. As for her charities for Davey they are tax deductable and therefore come under close scrutiny of the IRS. This is where u crossed the line and I hope she does sue you. If those charities lose donors because of your slanderous words. If she doesn't I will since I am a donor. Maybe u sleazebags forget or don't know that because of Davey's tragic murder, she received the benefits of his life insurance money which was a considerable sum and is given to her in annuities. She still works for a living. And she works damn hard for "Davey's Ride". I hope u never know the anguish of a mother losing her only child. Two boys joined the military after 9/11. One came back and one didn't. I am so proud of what she does because if it had been the other way around and it was my son who did't come back I wouldn't be writing this. I would be dead. As a final note lots of people lived in "loser" Melrose. Most from Quntico but also a lot of people who wanted a cheap place to live while saving money to buy a house, go to college, etc.
Watch out you two, I will find out who u are and we Marines are an evil lot aren't we? Look what we go through to protect sleaze like you two. Hope your honest on your taxes, don't have a skeleton in the closet, aren't secret cross dressers or anything. I will find all the dirt on you and it will be published. Then you'll get the experience of having your name dragged through the mud. I will promise this much. If you have ever done anything immoral,illegal or depraved I will ruin you. You will lose everything.

Va. Ice Cream Shop Owner, Joseph Ruhren, Faces Charges For Sexually Abusing Boy
Ruhren is a former police officer

DUMFRIES, Va. - A former small town northern Virginia police officer who now owns a popular ice cream shop in Dumfries, Va. is charged with sexually abusing a boy over a five-year period ending in 2001.

The alleged victim lives in Fredericksburg. The accused, 41-year-old Joseph Ruhren, is facing 23 criminal charges - including forcible sodomy and aggravated sexual battery.

Prince William County police say they first learned of these allegations during the summer of 2010 when a then-27-year-old man came to them alleging that he had been sexually abused by Ruhren between 1996 and 2001 when the accuser was 12 to 16 years old, and the accused was a police officer in the Town of Dumfries.

Without commenting about the allegations, a Dumfries police official told FOX 5 Ruhren worked as a patrol officer for the town from August, 1996 until he retired in April, 2004. That is when he opened Jo Jo's Original Softserve on Main Street in Dumfries.

"The ice cream there is so good," says longtime customer Leah Harris. "We always take the kids over there so they can goof off in the summer time and just enjoy the ice cream and the weather."

After asking us to leave the property, a man and woman who said they were related to Ruhren told us these were just allegations from 16 years ago and that "he's innocent, he didn't do it."

Ruhren was arrested in the Rappahannock jail where he was already behind bars for reportedly violating terms of his probation on fraud charges involving prescription drugs.

And though its owner is facing serious charges, Jo Jo's Original Softserve remains open for business.

Wow you say you were a cop for 13 years when Dumfries says from 1996 to 2004 - maybe "Ruhren Math" is alot different than what every other one of us studied in school, but 2004 minus 1996 is "8" and that's the same number of years Dumfries said you were on their force.

As for you "agreeing to serve 2 months and 2 weeks", sentencing was for all 10 counts was 10 years WITH ALL BUT 4 MONTHS SUSPENDED....which means you had to serve at least 75% of that 4 months in jail. You didn't agree to anything, that is what the judge gave you. Plus INDIFINATE SUPERVISION OF PROBATION.

Then you got a restricted license but you also were caught driving without one (FINE OF $250.00 AND CHARGES OF $92.00) and then you fled the scene of an accident at the same time (FINE OF $250.00), for which you were also charged. So then again in January of 2012, knowing you still on INDEFINATE SUPERVISION OF PROBATION, you tested positive in PWC for drugs once again, to which that fine is $291.00, which resulted in your PROBATION VIOLATION IN STAFFORD and now you have to serve 6 MONTHS WITH NOTHING SUSPENDED.

Just for clarification purposes, all the suspended time from all the 10 counts is still over your head and once you get out, if you even spit on the street, your probation can be revoked once again.

The $1,000,000.00 question here is.....what was the real reason you no longer work for Dumfries Police Department? And as the facts state in all the newspaper articles and tv reports, the investigation against you for molesting the young boy HAS BEEN GOING ON SINCE 2010, not last week, not last month, not even 6 months ago, and the FBI are involved in it too beside PWC Police. They obviously have alot of evidence to be investigating since 2010.

I drove by JoJo's SoftServe and I noticed there was a decent sized line. What on Earth is wrong with those people?!?! Why are they still supporting and standing by this arrogant, creepy piece of garbage? Those people who support this guy are either dumb or blind to the facts, and truly do not protect their loved ones. I feel sorry for the boys who were victims of this creepy pedophile, and I feel sorry for the employees who were deceived into thinking Mr. "JoJo" (stupid nickname to begin with) does so much good for his community. You people should be ashamed of yourselves.

Maybe they are hoping for the news reporters to come back and interview again?

One of the newscasts stated that the victim was a student at Graham Park Middle School and was on the wrestling team when he was molested by the pervert.

I feel bad for the victim and his family and I can only imagine how hard it was to come forth. Hopefully he's been in counseling to deal with everything that has happened.

The pervert should have to pay!

I did a little checking on my own after I read this ridiculus blog. See, retired Marines usually go to work for the Government and they meet other retired people from the other service branches and they work in all facets of the Government. So with that, he has not been investigated for two years, the FBI are not involved, and the accuser will shortly be reversing his allegations. In other words he lied. I also pulled in some favors to some IT security people who are going to trace the IP addresses of the worst offenders on here,Mel Rosen,TDM,investgator, and last but not least my personal favorite, Melrose Native. Then I know a few people at Homeland Security who work with all the alphabets in DC (IRS,CIA, NSA, etc.). So this is where it gets fun. When former military people find out one of their own, deceased, is getting dragged through the mud, they get very angry. Almost as much as I did when u started dragging Sonja's name into this and her Charity. I told u not to do that, that boy was like a son to me and he was my son's best friend. I told u that u crossed the line. I just started making phone calls and copying this blog to certain people and bham, instant investigations from all those alphabets. I love it. Now, me, I'm just out to make your tiny little lives miserable with endless paperwork and people coming to your houses and places of employment asking very personal questions about you to your neighbors, coworkers, and bosses. When Sonja's friends who have attended all of "Davey's Rides" find out who u are which they will, If I were u I would start looking over my shoulder, checking bushes around your house, ect.

This is a local case - not a federal case. Since when does Homeland Security give a rats ass about an American Pedophile?? The feds are not concerned and will not even waste their time with this. If anyone is looking up stuff for you - they'll get fired and you'll go to jail.

When you get to jail - say "Hello" to JoJo!! Maybe if your lucky he'll share his bed with you!

Ridiculous. The threats on her about having to look over your shoulder and calling CIA and NCIS and all that crap are bogus. No one is going to investigate anything said on a stupid blog about the damn ice cream man. Seriously. But all jokes aside...true or not...everyone meets their maker in the end. Whether the "victim" lied or told the truth, someone was wrong and will have to stand up for it in the long run. Hopefully everyone on here is adult enough to stop the name calling and threatening of each other. This sad and horrible case has a victim. No matter who it is. If this was your child that lived with this and had their childhood taken from them or your sibling who had false accusations thrown against them for something like this, sit back and think how you would react to this. I just hope everyone involved gets closure soon and finds peace within. Everyone on here...grow the F up and stop acting like your on the damn playground :)

Questions that are yet answered.

1. The young man reported the molestation in 2010 (according to the papers and newscasts, August of 2010). Newscasts say local, county, state nad FBI were all involved in the investigation. Almost 2 years worth of investigation. Why?????

2. This forum shows suppossedly JoJo saying he learned his lesson and "saw the light".....and what just happened that he is in jail. He violated his probation from failing a mandated drug test and bad checks. Guess he didn't learn his lesson.

3. People ask why did it take so long for this young man to come forth. Molesation victims sometimes never come forward because of the remorse the feel for what happened. Some have been told it's "their fault" and that families can fall apart if they come forward. They are made to feel guilty and dirty, when really the molester is the guilty and dirty one.

4. Upstanding citizens molest young children......look at the priests in the Catholic religion. The are put on a pedistal and looked up to by the catholic community. Just like cops/coaches/teachers. Just because someone holds a position in authority does not give anyone the right to rape someone!!!!!!!

5. What if it was your child who came to you and said he/she was molested by an "upstanding pillar of the community"? What would you do? I know what I would do....the person would never live to stand trial.

No, because I am a parent who gave life to my children and I would lay down my life for my children.

Policemen take an oath to obey the law and uphold the law and protect citizens. Age, sex, race, handicap does not play a factor in the citizen that is suppossed to be protected.

Policemen, just like priests, legal representatives, doctors, etc., are held to a higher standard because of the position they hold in the community.

We are taught as children that policemen are there to protect us and if we get lost, the first person we are to look for is a policeman. How do we explain to our children that policemen can not be trusted because they abuse drugs and molest little boys?

Those who are on the "justice for JoJo" bandwagon obviously don't have children of their own or they have their heads up their asses.

And before the charges could be filed and an arrest warrant issued, there had to be enough EVIDENCE proven for the charges to go in front of a Grand Jury and they decide whether to go forward or not.

Just a thought here, maybe you should start your checking on the family of the upstading citizen "ice cream man" and his "upstanding pillar of the community" family if you want to dig up dirt. The internet is a wealth of information when it comes to the court systems.....and your fingers can do the walking. AND IT'S ALL PUBLIC INFORMATION AT THE COURTHOUSES.

Asset Acceptance judgment in the amount of $857.84 with $56.00 in court costs and 6% interest beginning the date of judgment until paid in full.

Rhappahannock Electric Company in the amount of $610.00 with $74.00 in court costs and 6% interest beginning the date of judgment until paid in full.

Foot Doctor of Rhappahannock in the amount of $120.00 with $58.00 court costs and 6% interest beginning the date of judgment until paid in full.

Here's a good one "Failure to report Meal Tax" in the amount of $71.00.

Port Potomac Homeowners Associaiton in the amount of $2,230.00 with $56.00 in court costs and 6% interest beginning the date of judgment until paid in full.

And the best of all.....Potomac Dairy Farms in the amount of $18,915.06 with the court costs of $56.00 and the 6% interest until paid in full.

Now, can wager if these judgments will ever be paid......I say they won't.

Not to mention various hearings, costs and fines for not having insurance on the vehicles, not having a valid driver's licence, not having current inspection.....and so on and so on.

Megan Jones Zieger · Licensed Clinical Social Worker at United States Navy:
He is guilty as sin. There has been talk for many years about him molesting children ( I wasnt sure what to believe as I personally don't know him). But it looks like it finally caught up to him. To much of a coincidence that people always said he was a pedo and now he arrested for molestation. Alot of people I know refused to eat a jojo's because they said they werent supporting a pedos shop. I thought they were kinda joking but I see now how true they were.
@christa ruhen not sure how many sisters joe has but his sister, maybe you, was at a townhouse in Dumfries I was visiting many years ago, and the sister was there too crying and hysterical stating how joe just raped her or tried to rape her. how can you honestly say he isn't a sexual predator? you know the truth.
plus he was a lousy cop. many, many complaints of harrassment against. usually teenage boys he was constantly harassing without proper cause.

Everybody is innocent until proven guilty, but I believe he is guilty. I don't believe for one second he never molested anybody. I saw how this guy threw his weight around as a cop.

I would like to point out that I know for a fact he had somebody write this letter for him: http://www2.insidenova.com/mgmedia/file/617/jojo-joseph-ruhren-letter/.

The reason I know he didn't write it is because he sucks horribly at grammar and spelling. His I.Q. is the same as the temperature he serves his ice cream. I went to JoJo's Soft Serve once back in 2008, and that was before I knew it was owned by him. I have never been back since, and I won't be going back ever.

I'm not saying you or anybody else cannot like/support this guy. I'm just saying that I have reasons to believe he is guilty. That doesn't mean he will be found guilty of ALL 23 counts of sexual assault, but I'm certain he will be found guilty of at least half of them. I saw the way he acted as a cop: arrogant and disrespectful. He was a wrestling coach at a middle school rolling around on the mat with 12-year-olds, and he only "gives to the community" if it's middle and elementary schools, which have kids ranging from ages 5-13. It isn't just me who has seen how he acts, it's many others as well. All these people who call him a creep aren't doing so because they are bored and don't like him. There is some very incriminating evidence against him; and just because it took over 10 years for someone to tell the police about abuse doesn't mean JoJo didn't do it. A lot of people are scared of reporting abuse, especially when it involves someone we're supposed to trust (a cop) that did it.

So, according to your prescribed doctrine, we should tolerate drug abuse, forcible rape, and abuse of power (police officer, substitue teacher, coach, ice cream man), because he has infiltrated the very areas of our community that revolve around children, creating a false sense of trust, luring people into this facade of community leader/advocate....foolish and reckless. Isn't that exactly the profile and tactics of some of the most diabolical predators? Isn't this exactly the person we all try to warn against in our guidance to our children?

Why don't you let him teach your children, have them over to his house for some "special" attention while the rest of us will do what is obviously necessary to protect our children and educate them to the wiles of these clever and often charismatic predators...let us know how your children fair with your blind tolerance and enabling philosophy regarding those you invite into your family's lives. He is already a convicted felon. The forced sodomy, acts against nature, and 20+ other sexually related charges he has on top of this is just cause for any parent to consider the threat and horror. tolerance in the strictest definition would never imply that you should weigh any of what he is known to have done, add what he is charged with and negate any of it because he gives ice cream coupons to the community. Actions have consequences. He was an adult when he chose to break the law and breach the trust of the community the first time. Think about what you are saying. Yes, he's hurt people, he may have hurt a child in the most devious and malicious sense, but let's give him a pass because he does these "good" things....consider the possibility that his desire to get involved in the community may play directly into his desire provide an his optimal opportunity and "playground" for manipulations and abuse of others. Pedaphiles and predators of the like are very charismatic and clever by nature. He has demonstrated a serious character weakness through the choices he made that led to his confirmed criminal convictions. While we will all await the verdict on the numerous sexual abuse of a child charges, some of us are not going to be able to convince ourselves that this is a role model, community leader. Aren't there plenty of people who represent models of character and integrity without a criminal history and ongoing charges? He didn't make a mistake. He made a choice. We are all defined by the choices we make.

The "whole" story is public record. Adults don't make "mistakes", they make choices. Joe has made the same "choice" repeatedly. Actions have consequences. There is truly much more to the "story" than what has been digested by the community. Blinded by the "good" deeds and community advocacy, we would be inclined by weakness and naivite to dismiss the obvious. Patterns and profiles are established. Wait for the "I can't believe I didn't see it" moment while you enjoy the ice cream and financing his lifestyle. We will choose other places to patronize, other pockets to line. You can continue to follow your police officer-substitute teacher-coach-ice cream man who lies to get drugs and may have ventured deeper into the creep-hole.

Adults don't make mistakes. We make choices. Our choices define our character and represent our integrity. There is no way to ignore a clear demonstration of weak character. A disregard for trust...well, another choice made. Actions have consequences. A good lesson for all: Before you say it, before you do it, know you will live with it and IT will define your character, not your crowing and protesting that you are any different than the acts.

Learn and grow from the bad choices you make. There is always a chance to repent and redeem. Continue to make bad choices...you really can't get angry at others when patterns of unacceptable behavior are identified and reactions come to light.

Campaigning for or against this man is not our place. We should all choose our individual reactions. Resist the urge to compel others to live according to our expectations. He should not need or want to solicit "support", nor should he be subjected to a lynch mob. He was free to make his choices. We are all free to do the same....thanks to those who continue to protect our freedoms. Don't dishonor our rights and freedoms by shameful displays and group-think. Eat the ice cream, don't eat the ice cream, your choice, your individual choice. ...and take care to retain the honor and respect for our community.

Have to agree on this one. But then again what is expected when the kids have no clue of who their daddys are and none of them made an effort to graduate - they were just passed onto the next grade to be gotten rid of. Criminal backgrounds, fake boobs, a stripper, living off of others and the system....yep that's the DNA of that bunch!

As someone who doesn't know the family or Joe, it seems apparant to me that Joe got the wrong people angry, Maybe it was even in this forum. And in return they have caused these things to happen to him. He starts naming names in here in regards to the police force, defending himself over the prescription charges then all hell breaks loose. Bringing his siblings and family into it even furthers my suspicions. That's just uncalled for imo...

From what has been on the news and in the newspapers and internet, the investigation on Joe began in 2010, before he ended up in jail on the charges of the drugs and the violation of his probation with the dirty pee test and bad check charges. Once it was made public about the drug charges and he got out of jail, he tried to "sugar coat" it by saying he offered to serve the time he served...yadayada. When really, he broke the law and got caught and when you do the crime you have to pay the time. With him having the history of being a police officer, he should have held himself above all appearances of wrong doing, but we know he didn't and now he's back in jail and the his house of cards has all fall down.

His preliminary hearing is July 25th at 8:30 a.m. in PWC JDR. There are 23 counts against him at this time and no doubt more to come.

Sounds like PWC and Dumfries has their own Jerry Sandusky right in their midst.

This was posted on Inside NOVA in response to Joe's Sister, Christa's comment defeinding her brother and calling the victim a "Welfare Looser".

"I grew up with this family and sister or not people should not throw stones at glass houses and just because a child is being raised on welfare does not give this sicko pervert the right to take advantage of a child.I guess you think because your brother payed for some stuff for a under privileged child that the child should have to pay him back by letting your brother do whatever he wants to the child.I guess it would have been okay if the same thing would have happened to one of your siblings when you was growing up on welfare.Don't forget some of us remember your family and who your mother was and what she did to raise all of you.I would be ashamed to even make comments like you did.Pull your own skeletons out before you judge others on welfare.O my is that judging? You are not God just like you said.You are just as sick as he is.I suppose he didn't do anything else he was charged with either that's why he is in jail now.What your momma do besides get welfare for her kids? We all know it was illegal so talk about welfare children again you used to be one you sicko."

Jerry Sandusky's verdict = GUILTY 45 out of 48 counts. Justice was served.

To all my loyal Friends and customers. Since the very beginning, I have always maintained my innocence and as you can see today that the courts felt that there was lack of evidence on the commonwealths part to go forward with 15 of the charges brought forth. I understand that the Commonwealth may attempt to resubmit those dismissed charges at the Grand Jury hearing which is not uncommon at all. What is clear however, that 8 charges are still pending, and with that, I still must prove my good name and reputation in trail (if it makes it that far) Regardless, I want to express my sincere appreciation for the hundreds of email and calls which I've received since I've been freed on bond. Not to mention the many folks who attended my bond hearing in support of my release pending our trial. I know and understand that many of my friends and customers who came forward in support of me are employed with our local schools, government and other local businesses where they have put their good reputation on the line for me, because they believe in me and will stand by me, and I thank them from the bottom of my heart. In no way will I attempt to release what evidence/knowledge we have to discredit this individual (alleged victim) nor will I reveal his motive, I ask simply that you understand this, there is no supportive evidence to his claim other then his word. There will be nothing introduce with regards to anything they found on my cell phone or computer and most importantly in the two (2) years the county has been investigating this matter and the fact my charges has been in every newspaper and news itself, not one other child has ever come forward to claim the same. I have been a huge role model to so many, and to some, like a second father. I know I'm not perfect, as many have learned of my personal addiction to my sleeping medicine, but the matter is over, I served my punishment and all I can do is simply move forward. Many have asked what they can do for me..my answer is two things....Continue to support me and my business please.....and keep praying for me. God Bless Mr Jo Jo

This is the most coherent thing I have ever read from "JoJo". But that doesn't mean I believe he is not guilty.

Someone who will remain anonymous had this to say about "JoJo".

Quote

Had I not noticed something was strange about you in 2003 wanting my minor son to 'wash your cruiser' on a weekend at a location you would not disclose to him or to me, this could be him taking you to court. I remember telling your Chief, when I met with him, to discuss your actions with my son that I would be reading about you in the paper someday. Boy how I was right! Because I would not allow my son to wash your cruiser, you then brought charges against him. I would have paid money to be a fly on the wall when you brought my son to court on charges of internet harassment, when the judge adjudicated that the charges were not warranted. If you want to dispute anything I've said here, I still have all of the paperwork, including the IM discussions you had with my son. The first one, where you pretended to be a girl to get his attention and give you information about himself, ie, where he went to school. The second one discussing the cruiser washing. I also have all of the messages that you left on our answering machine where you told us that we were not smart for not allowing our son to do the cruiser washing.

Here's a post on his FB page:

"I want to again thank the many friends/customers who have come forward to offer their support and willingness to assist me in any matter they can pertaining to the false accusation brought against me. What I've learned even more so, is that many of those who have contacted me in person or via email, have revealed some interesting fact pertaining to this alleged victim known only as C.H and that what some of you have revealed is very shocking and can only help with my case. It's important to know anything as it pertains to his character and his behavior in society (if you will).

So, I am reaching out and asking that if there is anything you think may help with my case or something you feel I should know (you may request to not be contacted) I would greatly appreciate it. As always, I'm 100% confident that the remaining 8 charges will be dismissed as were the 15 other charges, however, this matter is still pending and unfortunately in most people eyes (especially those who've disliked me mainly because of my law enforcement career and the arrest I've made) I'm guilty until proven innocence, rather the way it should be, innocence until proven guilty. Again, THANK YOU so much for your support and prayers.

Joe"

PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. --
A March trial date has been set for a Triangle man accused of sexually assaulting an underage boy in the 1990s.

A grand jury in Prince William Circuit Court this week indicted Joseph Ruhren, a former Dumfries police officer and owner of JoJo's Original Soft Serve, on 14 charges alleging that he sexually abused a boy beginning in 1996, when the boy was 12 years old, according to court records.

Eight of the charges were sent to the grand jury after a preliminary hearing in Prince William Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court last month. The remaining six charges are direct indictments from the grand jury.

Ruhren is scheduled to stand trial before a jury on March 25.

Ruhren, 41, of 3231 Riverview Drive in Triangle, was arrested in March after an investigation that police said began in August 2010 when a 27-year-old Fredericksburg man told police he was sexually abused between 1996 and 2001, when he was between 12 and 16 years old.

The man said the sexual assaults took place at different locations in Woodbridge and Dumfries, where Ruhren lived, police said at the time of his arrest.

Ruhren has denied the allegations and maintains his innocence.

Explanation of the charges and it's all public on the internet....everyone can keep track of what's going on.

§ 18.2-361. Crimes against nature; penalty.

A. If any person carnally knows in any manner any brute animal, or carnally knows any male or female person by the anus or by or with the mouth, or voluntarily submits to such carnal knowledge, he or she shall be guilty of a Class 6 felony, except as provided in subsection B.

B. Any person who performs or causes to be performed cunnilingus, fellatio, anilingus or anal intercourse upon or by his daughter or granddaughter, son or grandson, brother or sister, or father or mother is guilty of a Class 5 felony. However, if a parent or grandparent commits any such act with his child or grandchild and such child or grandchild is at least 13 but less than 18 years of age at the time of the offense, such parent or grandparent is guilty of a Class 3 felony.

C. For the purposes of this section, parent includes step-parent, grandparent includes step-grandparent, child includes step-child and grandchild includes step-grandchild.

(Code 1950, § 18.1-212; 1960, c. 358; 1968, c. 427; 1975, cc. 14, 15; 1977, c. 285; 1981, c. 397; 1993, c. 450; 2005, c. 185.)


§ 18.2-67.1. Forcible sodomy.

A. An accused shall be guilty of forcible sodomy if he or she engages in cunnilingus, fellatio, anilingus, or anal intercourse with a complaining witness whether or not his or her spouse, or causes a complaining witness, whether or not his or her spouse, to engage in such acts with any other person, and

1. The complaining witness is less than 13 years of age; or

2. The act is accomplished against the will of the complaining witness, by force, threat or intimidation of or against the complaining witness or another person, or through the use of the complaining witness's mental incapacity or physical helplessness.

B. Forcible sodomy is a felony punishable by confinement in a state correctional facility for life or for any term not less than five years; and in addition:

1. For a violation of subdivision A 1, where the offender is more than three years older than the victim, if done in the commission of, or as part of the same course of conduct as, or as part of a common scheme or plan as a violation of (i) subsection A of § 18.2-47 or § 18.2-48, (ii) § 18.2-89, 18.2-90, or 18.2-91, or (iii) § 18.2-51.2, the punishment shall include a mandatory minimum term of confinement of 25 years; or

2. For a violation of subdivision A 1 where it is alleged in the indictment that the offender was 18 years of age or older at the time of the offense, the punishment shall include a mandatory minimum term of confinement for life.

If the term of confinement imposed for any violation of subdivision A 1, where the offender is more than three years older than the victim, is for a term less than life imprisonment, the judge shall impose, in addition to any active sentence, a suspended sentence of no less than 40 years. This suspended sentence shall be suspended for the remainder of the defendant's life, subject to revocation by the court.

In any case deemed appropriate by the court, all or part of any sentence imposed for a violation under this section against a spouse may be suspended upon the defendant's completion of counseling or therapy, if not already provided, in the manner prescribed under § 19.2-218.1 if, after consideration of the views of the complaining witness and such other evidence as may be relevant, the court finds such action will promote maintenance of the family unit and will be in the best interest of the complaining witness.

C. Upon a finding of guilt under this section, when a spouse is the complaining witness in any case tried by the court without a jury, the court, without entering a judgment of guilt, upon motion of the defendant who has not previously had a proceeding against him for violation of this section dismissed pursuant to this subsection and with the consent of the complaining witness and the attorney for the Commonwealth, may defer further proceedings and place the defendant on probation pending completion of counseling or therapy, if not already provided, in the manner prescribed under § 19.2-218.1. If the defendant fails to so complete such counseling or therapy, the court may make final disposition of the case and proceed as otherwise provided. If such counseling is completed as prescribed under § 19.2-218.1, the court may discharge the defendant and dismiss the proceedings against him if, after consideration of the views of the complaining witness and such other evidence as may be relevant, the court finds such action will promote maintenance of the family unit and be in the best interest of the complaining witness.

(1981, c. 397; 1986, c. 516; 1994, cc. 772, 794; 1999, c. 367; 2005, c. 631; 2006, cc. 853, 914; 2012, cc. 575, 605.)


§ 18.2-67.3. Aggravated sexual battery; penalty.

A. An accused shall be guilty of aggravated sexual battery if he or she sexually abuses the complaining witness, and

1. The complaining witness is less than 13 years of age, or

2. The act is accomplished through the use of the complaining witness's mental incapacity or physical helplessness, or

3. The offense is committed by a parent, step-parent, grandparent, or step-grandparent and the complaining witness is at least 13 but less than 18 years of age, or

4. The act is accomplished against the will of the complaining witness by force, threat or intimidation, and

a. The complaining witness is at least 13 but less than 15 years of age, or

b. The accused causes serious bodily or mental injury to the complaining witness, or

c. The accused uses or threatens to use a dangerous weapon.

B. Aggravated sexual battery is a felony punishable by confinement in a state correctional facility for a term of not less than one nor more than 20 years and by a fine of not more than $100,000.

(1981, c. 397; 1993, c. 590; 2004, c. 843; 2005, cc. 185, 406.)


§ 18.2-63. Carnal knowledge of child between thirteen and fifteen years of age.

A. If any person carnally knows, without the use of force, a child thirteen years of age or older but under fifteen years of age, such person shall be guilty of a Class 4 felony.

B. If any person carnally knows, without the use of force, a child thirteen years of age or older but under fifteen years of age who consents to sexual intercourse and the accused is a minor and such consenting child is three years or more the accused's junior, the accused shall be guilty of a Class 6 felony. If such consenting child is less than three years the accused's junior, the accused shall be guilty of a Class 4 misdemeanor.

In calculating whether such child is three years or more a junior of the accused minor, the actual dates of birth of the child and the accused, respectively, shall be used.

C. For the purposes of this section, (i) a child under the age of thirteen years shall not be considered a consenting child and (ii) "carnal knowledge" includes the acts of sexual intercourse, cunnilingus, fellatio, anilingus, anal intercourse, and animate and inanimate object sexual penetration.

(Code 1950, § 18.1-44; 1960, c. 358; 1972, c. 394; 1975, cc. 14, 15, 606; 1981, c. 397; 1993, c. 852; 2007, c. 718.)

Dumfries rescue squad members in uniform told to stay away from JoJo's

DUMFRIES, Va. --

Members of the Dumfries-Triangle Rescue Squad - in uniform - are no longer allowed to patronize the nearby ice cream shop until after its owner's trial on child sex charges.

They cannot drive squad vehicles to JoJo’s Original Soft Serve in Dumfries either.

“This policy shall remain in effect for the pendency of the legal proceedings involving the owner,” wrote Dumfries-Triangle Rescue Squad Chief C. Derek Ester in an internal memo to squad members.

Ester could not be reached Friday for comment.

A grand jury in Prince William Circuit Court indicted Joseph Ruhren, 41, a former Dumfries police officer and owner of JoJo’s, in early August on 14 charges alleging he sexually abused a boy beginning in 1996, when the boy was 12 years old, according to court records.

Ruhren, of 3231 Riverview Drive in Triangle, is scheduled to stand trial before a jury on March 25, 2013.

He was arrested in March after an investigation that police said began in August 2010 when a 27-year-old Fredericksburg man told police he was sexually abused between 1996 and 2001, when he was between 12 and 16 years old.

The man said the sexual assaults took place at different locations in Woodbridge and Dumfries, where Ruhren lived, police said at the time of his arrest.

Ruhren has denied the allegations and maintains his innocence.

A copy of Ester’s memo to the squad and dated Wednesday was anonymously emailed to InsideNoVA.com and the News and Messenger as well as to the mayor and all six members of the Dumfries Town Council.

Staff writer Aileen M. Streng can be reached at 703-530-3907.

Has anyone bought the place yet? Whoever does is funding JoJo's defense because he still claims he's innocent. So did Jerry Sandusky.....and he was guilty!

Yes, the business sold a while back. When I noticed it was up for sale, I inquired about it but the real estate agent said they already had a very serious offer in. I do hope it's a different, unassociated entity that purchased the shop.

What's sad is the money that changed hands in this sale will help fund his lawyers fees. The pedophile should serve life behind bars and be Bubba's Bitch

How true....sad they can't even get the facts straight either.....he never worked for PWC Police, or Sheriff's Department. Just Dumfries. He wasn't good enough for any part of PWC or any other places he suppossedly applied for.

And his icecream wasn't that great anyway. Hopefully the new people didn't have to pay too much for the place and they can thrive so the community can forget the embarrassment Joe Ruhren was to the community. Looks like a few of his family members need to slither off into the sunset along with him too......the ones who like to draw attention and pity to themselves.

Another victim so sad!!!!!!!

Sex assault trial against former officer postponed; 2nd victim comes forward

More Reports
WASHINGTON - The sexual assault trial of a former police officer has been postponed after a second victim came forward.

Joseph Ruhren, 42, also used to own the popular JoJo's Ice Cream stand in Dumfries. Ruhren sold JoJo's last November.

Ruhren is accused of assaulting a boy more than a decade ago.

The charges stem from allegations that he began sexually abusing the 12-year-old victim when Ruhren was a Dumfries police officer.

Ruhren's trial Monday was postponed after prosecutors indicated a second victim -- also a man -- has come forward.

The case will go back to a grand jury, which will consider new charges against Ruhren.

Sheila Goff I wish people wouldn't take what this pervert has done out on the new owner of the ice cream shop. If you took just a few minutes to do a little research, I'm pretty sure you would see that the "someone" who bought it is not connected to him. The unbelievable drop in business showed him how his customers and the community felt about him and forced him to sell, and now I think it's time to give that business to the new owner and really prove to him that HE personally was the reason everyone stopped coming.

Former Cop, Ice Cream Shop Owner Faces More Charges

Ruhren
Ruhren
PRINCE WILLIAM COUNTY, Va. – More charges have been filed for a former Dumfries police officer and owner of a ice cream stand.
Joseph Ruhren, 42, now faces three counts of indecent liberties and two counts of carnal knowledge after detectives completed and investigation into events that occurred between 1999 and 2002 in the 3200 block of John Robinson Lane in the Virginia Commons Apartments near Dumfries, where a male teenager was sexually assaulted.
The victim was 14-years-old when the assaults began, and that the victim knew Ruhren, said police.
These new charges are on top of ones filed last year against Ruhren when he was arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting another 12-year-old boy from Fredericksburg between 1996 and 2001.
Prior to his arrest, Ruhren served as a Dumfries police officer but left the force. He later became the owner of Jo Jo’s Ice Cream stand in Dumfries, but put the business up for sale last year. The ice cream stand was purchased and reopened this year under a new name and ownership.

Wonder how JoJo's family and fan club feel about him now? Those that posted threats on this board and even JoJo himself. It's sad that it's taken this long for the truth about this bastard to come out. Those poor innocent boys....he took away their innocence and for what? Let's hope that the jury/judge puts this worthless piece of shit of away for life. Shame on you JoJo and you will rot in hell for this.

Joe graduated from Potomac High School in approximately 1988.

In his Senior year he made an allegation against a teacher at the school for improper touching. The administration investigated the incident and it is my understanding that there just was not enough actionable evidence against the teacher and the matter was not escalated.

Soon after, the teacher retired. I never knew if Joe was a victim or if he lied about the entire incident.

Its a bit odd to learn of this current turnabout in circumstances.

I sincerely doubt JoJo was a victim.

I feel it was his way of covering up what he was doing.

Rumor was he was "buddies" with one of his best friends for a long time. They were "inseperable".

JoJo is definitely a pedophile and needs to rot in jail and be Bubba's bitch.

I personally know and grew up with the first accuser and was hanging out with him during this time. I did not know this was going on and he was my best friend. He had a terrible childhood,and this makes it worse. I met Joe several times and he was very inappropriate in the way he spoke with me for my age, but it never bothered me and that's not a big deal. It was not sexually related and I never thought of him as a threat that way. I can't got into detail because it'd be exposing of who I am. His mother was a very nice lady who worked at my school, so please let's keep it classy about the family, who passed awhile back.

The troubling part for me is that my friend, who was the initial accuser, was/is a chronic liar. He's also has been manipulative at other times. Definitely a victim of circumstances, but even after talking to him about this when I found out, I could not figure out whether or not this actually happened. I've known him for most of my life and the fact that I don't know whether or not he's telling the truth bothers me. His emotions are very skewed.

I'm not saying it did or did not happen, but as someone who knows this person, I'm telling you to let the court determine this issue. It very well maybe true, based on something's my friend told me, but put the torches and pitchforks away and let the trial reveal the truth.

It's been proven that a child who has been continously molested begins to act out as they get older. They lie, throw tantrums, do anything to get attention, even to the point of becoming permiscuous. I grew up in Melrose and I saw how Joe acted with the little boys. That was his fetish and craving, being the center of attention of all the boys, on the pretense of "mentoring" them. And he was never ever seen with a girlfriend at all, only the little boys.

Just checked the PW court site and Mr. Pedophile has over 30 active charges against him and he will be in jail waiting on his hearings well into 2015. Now that's what I call KARMA. He thought he was all high and mighty and "above the law" since he was "an officer of the courts".......he's nothing more than an evil pedophile who preys on innocent boys.....he calls it "mentoring". Ya, right.

The news has been covering this closely, his trial was to be last September but it was continued because more victims came forth. And no doubt more will. I for one am thankful that the judicial system has prevailed and sees this air sucking piece of shit for what he is. He's pulled the wool over many people through out the years and now there has been solidified proof of his dirty deeds. May this bastard rot in hell after he serves his hell on earth in jail.

Well hopefully it seems as justice has prevailed and JoJo will be put away for a long long time.

Wonder what his family and supporters (his sister Christa and one of his supporters Midnight to mention a few) feel now.

His sister Christa spouting off that it was a welfare kid getting back at JoJo (I guess Christa and the rest of the Ruhren clan seem to conveniently forget that their family was on welfare for many many years and Mom supplemented the welfare by doing thins a bit illegal, if you know what I mean).

And lets not forget Midnight and his/her threats to those that posted against JoJo to "look over their shoulders at all times because it might be their last day". When can we all expect Homeland Security or the "G" men to come knocking at our door just because you say so.

In all honesty, his supporters are just as sick and evil as JoJo is. They can go and visit JoJo in the hooskow and have their pity parties.

I for one am, as I know many others are, thankful that his vile demon will not walk on the outside for many many years. 74 years is not quite enough for a child molester. Maybe he will someday share a cell with Jerry Sandusky and then they can fight over who is the bigger bitch.

And that folks, is a wrap.

To whoever Wrote that comment about his mom being proud, youre disgusting. You dont know what he went through when his Mother died. He was always trying to make her proud. And I guarentee shed still be proud of him. Hes accomplished more then half of you dumb asses waiting on this past. Ive known Joe for 14 years he is a great family friend. And It is sad that I am just finding out about these charges but none the less i will still stand by him because hê is a great Guy and he does care about his Community and if Any of you really knew him you would know that.
If you dont agree with his choices, Cool. Dont support his business then, but are you that immature where you need to come online to bash someone for making poor choices. No one is perfect. Remember that next time you want to say rude comments.

This comment is for Samantha. Are you kidding me? You said, "If you don't agree with his choices" are you nuts? His choices were to molest young boys and normal human beings would not agree with his choices!!!! Also, you said, "No one is perfect" what is wrong with you? No one is perfect if they go out and do something like get a traffic ticket not molest children. Furthermore, you said, "Don't support his business" you obviously don't know much about him because he couldn't hold on to his business because people won't buy ice cream from a child molester. Oh, you want an update, well last I heard he was found guilty at his first trial and looking at 74 years. Although that won't be it because he still has three more trials coming with more molestation charges. It looks like he will spend the rest of his life in jail, but hey that's the easy part because the hard part will be when he goes to hell. By the way I am not a fan either.

Okay Sammie G, you have no clue of what actually went down, so keep your trap shut. Those of us who grew up in Melrose knew exactly what each member of that family was, did, and how they would turn out. Momma was not the angel you want everyone to think she was. Different men for the daddies of the kids. No morals whatsoever in that family.

And how have all the kids turned out today? Do some research will you.

Thank goodness the jury had enough sense to put that animal away.

As far as I was concerned he wasnt felt guilty of anything, which is why I had written what I had written. I never once claimed his mom was an Angel or anyone in his family was. I was just trying to figure out what the hell was going on and if anyone could give me some FACTS on the case. Not hear say.

I haven't spoken to him in years, so hearing all this is baffling, as you said I dont know whats going on because I no longer live there. Which is why I was asking for insight . Didnt mean to make it seem like I was defending a Child molester

I have a Child myself and if in fact his charges are true no one will ever really know. But I feel for those families and for the men who have come forward.

Sorry if I made any one feel like I was taking his side.

Ex-police officer, ice cream shop owner convicted of abusing teenage boy...Former Dumfries police officer and JoJo’s ice cream shop owner Joseph Ruhren was convicted this week of eight felony charges stemming from accusations that he sexually assaulted a teen boy more than a decade ago.

At a trial in Prince William Circuit Court, a jury found Ruhren, 42, of Triangle, guilty of four counts of carnal knowledge of a minor, two counts of taking indecent liberties with a minor and one count each of aggravated sexual battery and forcible sodomy, according to court records.

SammyG/SamanthaG: Joe was suppossedly a maintenance man at Melrose and wolud befriend the young boys of the neighborhood on the pretense of mentoring and teaching them how to wrestle. Never saw him with a girlfriend, just the boys of the neighborhood. He then left Melrose and became one of Dumfries finest (he couldn't pass the academy for Prince William) and that's where he used his authority to get the boys to come to his place. He would give them alcohol and drugs and then take advantage of them. There was a big hullabalu at Dumfries PD and he resigned and opened up the ice cream place called JoJo's (which the ice cream was not that good). He was still molesting the boys saying he was "mentoring" them. He would take them to his place on the outside of Woodbridge and give them alcohol and drugs and have them sleep over and frolick in the hot tub and jacuzzi in the house. Rumor had it he also tried to rape his sister, I think it was Helen. Anyway, he was convicted of prescription fraud, getting differnt doctors to prescribe sleeping pills because he couldn't sleep (probably from guilt from molesting the little boys). He ended up in jail and that's where the fun began, I guess the boys he molested felt it was time to come forth and tell what was done to them, not just one boy either, last time a count was taken there are 6 and more are coming forth. The investigation has been going on since 2010 and is still going on. Hopefully the jury will stick with the 74 years and then our streets will be safe from this predator. He still says it didn't happen and his sisters (Christa and Helen) got on the bandwagon spouting off crap and threatening the ones who turned him in. Then his sister Peggy posted on facebook telling Christa to shut her mouth because it was all true. Threats were made on this site by buddies of his sister Sonja because the skeletons of the family started tumbling out of the closets. Those who grew up with the family shared what the family was all about ..... none of the kids know who their father is.....it's no wonder they are all disfunctional.

Feel free to share your stories of the family too.

Well Elliott, it looks like your friend was telling the truth. And the reason he was acting out was because of all the abuse that JoJo did not only to him, but to all the others he molested.

Be a friend to your friend, he is dealing with alot right now. He's going to need all the friends he can have.

JoJo on the other hand will get his due justice while he spends the rest of his rotten life in jail.

Wonder how Anna Ruhen feels now about her son. I guess he really made her proud. But then again, he learned all he knows at his momma's feet....she was no angel either.

And on another note, did the siblings of JoJo let him babysit their kids, especially the little boys, and if so, who is to say he didn't molest them either? Davey is gone so you can't ask him if his uncle raped him, what about Scott's kids, or Peggy's, Jodi's or Tammy's kids? Food for thought now.

How many victims does a child molester average? Interviews guaranteeing complete confidentiality and immunity from prosecution, conducted by Emory University psychiatrist Dr. Gene Abel, uncovered that:

Male offenders who abused girls had an average of 52 victims each.

Men who molested boys had an astonishing average of 150 victims each.

Only 3% of these crimes had ever been detected.

I happen to know the young man that was molested by this creep when he was younger. I know him because my daughter dated him. It is typical for a boy to not tell anyone about molestation because just like any other victim of sexual abuse, there is a great deal of shame and pain associated with it. He was only 12 years old when it started. When he confided in my daughter exactly what he had been through, she is the one who encouraged him to come forward which is what he did. Now the others have come forward, thanks to both he and my daughter, Joseph will get what he deserves, so far....75 years in prison. The FBI was involved, they did make a visit to our house to take my daughter's statement. I hope anyone who reads this will not judge the victims' reluctance to report these incidents when they occurred so long ago. This young man also served our country in Iraq, which is what I thought his problems stemmed from. It turned out to be so much more. I hope that all of his victims seek counseling to get the healing and peace that they deserve, and I hope Joseph Ruhren gets his consequences where he belongs, in prison for the rest of his life.

No one should judge the victims, they were violated and humiliated by this monster. At least now he will spend the rest of his life in jail.....and hopefully all the horrible things that have been done to the victims will be done to Joe by the other inmates. Inmates hate child molesters......and rightly so.

Maybe now that the victims know for a fact that he can't come back into their lives, they will seek the counseling and help they need and those that haven't come forward, maybe have the courage to.

My heart goes out for these boys and their families. Prince William County has their own Jerry Sandusky.

Well not a fan I would like to share my memories of the Ruhren family. First I would like to say I am not a fan of what Joe has done to innocent children. And I believe the punishment should have been worse. But the bashing of his entire family is uncalled for. Anna Ruhren was a kind and generous woman when I knew the family. I was a poor teenager when my family moved into Melrose and I can not tell you the number of times I sat at there table and ate and drank there food and the mother you guys keep bashing always had a smile and made me feel welcome in there home. I have not seen or spoke to anyone in the Ruhren family in over 30 yrs. But if I came into contact with any off them today I would buy them lunch and thank them for the kindness there mother and all there family members showed me.With a crime this sick it is understandable to be upset but I think attacking the entire family is a little to far out there. Say what you want about joe I will not defend or deny but out of fairness leave his family out of it. Hopefully anyone with no personal knowledge of this family will now see there is more to this family than the hate posted here.

First off its strange that someone claiming to be Jojo is posting here since, last time I checked, he was in jail and not getting out anytime soon. How do I know this? I was in the cell next to him at pwc jail, where he was in protective custody for being a crooked cop and a child molester. All of c pod were giving their stories of encounters with Jojo, a drug hungry fiend that abused his power the whole time. Now he gives back to the community? That ice cream store was just a front to lure little kids in so he could take them down to the athletic club and rape them. Don't take my word for it, look it up. And Jojo? If that is you (which its not) prove its you by recounting some specifics from our encounter on c pod, when I was in the cell next to you screaming about how once you get to prison they're going to stick a broom stick up your ducking asset. And that will be justice.

I was always suspicious of this guy. He was a "resource officer" at a school in Triangle I once worked at, and I saw him "manhandle" kids(boys) on several occasions. I DID report it to the building administrators at the time on the exact days the events occurred. I was told not to repeat what I said to anyone, because "I didn't know what I was talking about", and that the officer had a "community dynamic" there at the school, and they "were fortunate that he took such an interest in the welfare of the students, especially those from challenging home environments". He was very "handsy" with a pair of brothers who I had at different times in my classroom. I reported this at the time as well, and was told that he was a friend of their family,and again, to keep my observations to myself, or I could end up on the wrong side of a lawsuit. The one brother was in the paper not long ago (last year ?), with some sort of sexual assault charges against HIM. I was not a bit surprised. Classic abuse turn around situation. As far as the no girlfriend issue goes, there WAS a girlfriend of sorts. She worked at the school also, but has been gone for many years. I always thought she knew a whole lot more about him than she ever let on...

Well thank goodness Joe Ruhren the pedophile is locked up for the rest of his life and he can no more prey on innocent boys. Now he can be Bubba's Bitch in confinement. Inmates don't look likely on cops, let alone a cop who raped little boys while he was on the police force and while he had his ice cream shop. Red Onion State Prison is not far enough away for him to be. He should have been leathally injected and dumped in a landfill with sludge. He was a piece of shit and so was his family back in Melrose and he still is today. Karma is a bitch JoJo and I hope you rot in hell for what you did to my child and all the other innocent boys.

Ah this is laughable. Joe is a pedophile and getting his just dues. Karma at its finest. He even has a FB page naming his victims and spewing lies about them. Joe needs to be put in general population and let the inmates do to him what he did to them.....just for starters. Joe Ruhren I hope you rot in he'll for what you did to those boys and for all the lies you are telling now. You and your family are white trash.

To condemn a whole family for your son's lies about Joe, that's bs, Joe was an outstanding mentor to many young people in the Dumfries, Triangle area. Tell those who are lying and damning an innocent man to tell the truth.... #liars

Oh pleeease. Joe's FB page is so full of his lies and he believes himself. Those who know Joe know he was homosexual and experimented on his sisters.....He even admitted to it. He is in the place he needs to be Deanna Durden.....and he needs to be locked up for the animal and monster he is. Castration is too good for that piece of dog shit.

This site is a joke!!!!! Joe admits he's a pervert and a homosexual....even naming the guys he's been with. I wonder how officer J.Paul Third in will take to seeing how Joe revealed that they were lovers.
