Boston.– A Shrewsbury, Mass., man pleaded guilty April 4 in U.S. District Court in Worcester, Mass., to traveling to the Dominican Republic with the intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct.

According to politicalnews.me, the guilty plea is the result of an extensive investigation by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement's (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI).

Conrad Gallant, 61, pleaded guilty before U.S. District Court Judge Timothy S. Hillman to engaging in illicit sexual conduct in foreign places and travel with intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct.

Under the terms of the plea agreement, the court must sentence Gallant to between 60 and 168 months in prison, 10 years of supervised release, restitution and forfeiture. Sentencing is scheduled for June 26, 2013.

According to the agreed upon statement of facts, Gallant traveled to the Dominican Republic in February 2011 and had sexual relations in his apartment with a 14-year-old girl he knew was underage.

Gallant returned to the Dominican Republic four times over the course of a year to engage in illicit sexual relations with the underage victim, giving her money, a laptop computer and jewelry during that time.

Additionally, on these trips, Gallant took photographs of the victim while she was nude and while engaging in sexual acts, and took those images back to the United States.

I am an advocate for children. I cannot wrap my mind nor my heart around the deliberate abuse of a child. I cannot understand why the society in which I live is so tolerate of any sex offenders behavior against children nor why we don't demand change? I believe that anyone convicted of a sex crime against children should be put to death immediately. I present that results of very long and conditional scientific studies demonstrate clearly that once a pedophile, always a pedophile thus I believe that these individuals have no place in our society.

By the way, parents who pimp their children should lined up and shot by firing squad.

Which religious order does he belong to? Catholic, Jew, Buddhist, Baptist, Hindu, Shinto, Atheist? Does he carry a Bible? Does he like Fernandez or his fat wife? Inquiring minds need too know.

basta, can you help me understand why people like you have to blame religion for every problem we human beings have brought upon ourselves, these people people like you think that even if a mosquito bites you that it must have been because of some religion


anyway the problem here is education, i see girls in dr at the age of 9 already dressing and acting like stripper, you see them dancing reggeton and thinking about jepetas money and alot of material things, why is that? because of a lack of education because they dont receive the right education by their parents and the gov, i have always noticed that when a child grows up without 1 of both of their parents they seem to miss out on alot of life lessons.

SANTIAGO,
It's not about blaming a religion, it's like filling-out a baseball scored card.....Just keeping stats.

Young girls acting like strippers, we can thank the government for that.

Btw, the parents often agree to this abuse, so they should get some jail time as well.

Cojelo bien suavesito.

Before we put this sick piece of shit on a hanging pole.

Let's burn his testicles, penis and anus with a red hot branding iron.

If after that he is still alive, then we hang him from a light pole.

While we burn his feet as he is agony.

If all of these American child molesting men are arrested, there will be no more American men left in The Sewer. (Sosua), or any other RD town.

The eye opener is Conrad Gallant was prosecuted in the US for a crime that took place in the RD. It reflects the disparity of attitude between the US and RD regarding the will to seek out, prosecute, and punish sex offenders.

lsantiago77, == Religion is the curse of man kind. It would be great if the North Koreans Nuked all the religious sites in the world. But mankind would come up with another religion to control and rip of the masses. Oh Oh I’m going to Heaven! What crap.

lack of education= In the USA there is plenty of Education and still most kids are losers. Maybe it’s the Terrible Teens!

Basta

No!
It's inferior teachers and subject matter, and a focus on sports, not learning. That's why US kids are losers.

Basta, i understand what you mean and makes sence to a certain degree, i believe in god and by doing so it helps me be a better person and making other peoples life better, if someone asks for help or needs something i make sure to help and by doing so it makes their life better, there is also a lot of fake religious people, people who are in church and when someone needs help they look the other way, unfortunately bad things and people like that get more attention than the people that do good things

and regarding the US, if what you said is true, the whole planet wouldnt then want to immigrate to the US, and the US wouldnt be the richest and most powerful nation in the galaxyy

I am certain that this guy didnt just came across a 14 year old girl all by himself someone had to provide or at least facilitate the connection and that someone should be prosecuted as well regardless of who they are

Let me ask you, lsantiago77,
If you found out tomorrow there is no god, would you stop "making other peoples life better"?
I suspect not.

“With or without religion, you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion.”
? Steven Weinberg

Atheists generally behave more humanely and morally than believers.
