Accused Wanna-Be Child Molester Served Federal Time for Raping 13-year-Old
The California man arrested by police thanks to a tip by a concerned alleged pimp served time previously for forcibly raping a 13-year-old girl.
The vicious 1996 crime by Dell Rainbow Vanderschuit, (pictured), is mentioned in a police report obtained by New Times that also records how the perv wanted to buy sex with a 10-year-old girl. Two undercover cops called Vanderschuit last October, one pretending to be a prostitute and the other posing as the girl in the prostitute's care.
Vanderschuit: Yeah, maybe you can um, you can um you know get her ready with me and her in the same room so.

Cop: Get her ready for sex?
Vanderschuit: Yes, and I'm like a really gently (sic) guy you know.
Cop: Okay, well.
Vanderschuit: Does she, does she have uh any pubic hair?
Cop: No, I haven't seen any when I've thrown her in the shower to get ready to go to bed at night.
Vanderschuit: Does she have titties?
Cop: Well she's got like just like little ant hills.
Vanderschuit: Okay, and um what is she ready to do?
Vanderschuit ultimately gets spooked by the phone calls, saying the girl sounds like an "adult woman" (which she was) and deciding to call off negotiations on the deal. But cops and prosecutors apparently figure they've got enough to hang him on, so to speak. His trial is scheduled to begin on May 4.
The transcripts of the calls indicate Vanderschuit wasn't just kidding around -- he apparently did want to hire a threesome that included a prepubescent girl. And there's no doubt Vanderschuit is capable of such a vile act. He's done worse.
In 1996, the police report reveals Vanderschuit -- then 22 -- met a 13-year-old girl at a bowling alley in Hemet, California and convinced her to drive to a convenience store with him. On the way, he ripped off the girl's pants, raped her, then pulled out a knive and ordered her to give him oral sex. In the military at the time, Vanderschuit was court-martialed and later served four years in the Leavenworth prison.
