Mar 10 - RGP Information Leads To Conviction Of Paedophile In The U.S

Information provided by the Royal Gibraltar Police to their U.S counterparts has led to the conviction in the U.S of Michael Pierce for child pornography-related offences.

During their investigation into Colin Fisher, who was convicted by the Supreme Court in Gibraltar in March 2015 on several counts of Voyeurism, Possession and Showing Indecent Photographs of children, the RGP’s High Tech Crime Unit established that Fisher and Pierce had been communicating via Skype.

Acting on the information provided by the RGP, Lake Orion Police Department initiated an investigation into Pierce ultimately leading to the search of Pierce’s home and his arrest.

During the search Lake Orion Police found videos of children being sexually abused. Pierce admitted to recording the videos whilst abusing the children and reportedly told investigators that he ‘is not going to get better’. He was subsequently charged with three counts of ‘Production of Child Pornography.’

It is alleged that Pierce had taken more than 100 sexually explicit photos and nearly 30 videos, leading Lake Orion Police Chief Jerry Narsh to comment: “There is no greater harm, or cancer-like evil inflicted on a child than this type of crime”.

Pierce, who had pled guilty to the charges in September 2016, was sentenced on Wednesday 8th March to 90 years incarceration by the Honourable Judge Sean Cox of the Eastern District of Michigan.

The RGP has once again been thanked and congratulated by the US authorities for their expertise and diligence in their investigations and the assistance afforded to their law enforcement agencies.

The RGP says it remains committed to the fight against, and the eradication, of the global sexual exploitation of children.
