    Hopefully this is another creep that'll get 50 years in a federal pen - and not just 10-15!

    Just goes to show the lengths pedos will go to in order to prey on the innocent.

    This is an offshoot of a tread started by Filly. Turns out that this ring is getting bigger and there's quite a backstory. Here's Filly's thread about Benjamin Hager which circles back to these guys:

    No Past Record But A Look Into Child Pornography Suspects Past Speaks Volumes - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community



    And here's an article and a PR about three cohorts:

    Sterling Heights [MI] man arraigned on child porn charges

    Aug. 12, 2010

    A Sterling Heights man who allegedly drugged a minor girl, sexually molested her, and sent images of it over the Internet, was arraigned today on child pornography charges in federal court in Detroit.

    Robert J. Mueller, 47, of Sterling Heights stood mute at his arraignment, where he pleaded not guilty to multiple charges relating to claims that he arranged for sexual photo shoots with a minor girl at his home, and posted pornographic images of other minors on an international child pornography site.

    And he allegedly didn't do it alone.

    According to the federal indictment, Mueller and his cohort, John Belloli Jr., 50, of Dearborn Heights allegedly conspired to share child pornography over the Internet, arranged meetings to engage in sexual acts with minors and photograph it, and sedated one minor -- who was less than 12 years old -- with prescription sleep aids before engaging in sexual acts with her. The two allegedly photographed one another "digitally penetrating and performing oral sex" on the minor girl..."

    and

    "...Belloli, who works for General Motors, allegedly stored some of the pornographic images on his work laptop computer, according to court records...."

    And the FBI PR:

    CO-FOUNDER OF FITNESS AND EDUCATION PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN CHARGED WITH RECEIPT OF CHILD PORNOGRAPHY

    BOSTON, Mass. - An Acton man was charged today in federal court on receipt of child pornography charges of Receipt of Child Pornography.

    BRAD WARNER, 33, was arrested and charged in a criminal complaint with receipt of child pornography. The criminal complaint alleges that in March of 2009, Warner knowingly received visual depictions of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct, and knowingly possessed visual depictions of minors engaging in sexually explicit conduct.

    According to the criminal complaint, Warner, who is a co-founder of HammelFit, a fitness and education program designed for children under the age of seven, exchanged numerous emails with other persons located outside of Massachusetts.

    It is alleged that Robert John Mueller of Sterling Heights, Michigan received e-mails from an e-mail address, thesnark.lg@gmail.com with user name Charles Dodgson, containing conversations about sexual interests in little girls and their sexual desires for little girls from the ages of approximately three to 10 years old. The user of the e-mail account indicated to Mueller that he had a particular sexual interest in an approximately seven year old girl. It was later determined that the user of the email account thesnark.lg@gmail.com belonged to Warner. It is alleged in addition to Warner’s e-mails, Mueller also communicated through over 100 e-mails with John J. Belloli, Jr. of Dearborn Heights, MI. During which time they had multiple conversations describing sexual attraction of minor female including minors as young as three years old. It is further alleged that on March 14, 2009, Belloli e-mailed Warner a video file that depicted a prepubescent female and an adult male engaged in sexual acts.

    According to the complaint, on two occasions, the person using the name Charles Dodgson and using the email address thesnark.lg@gmail.com, sent Belloli multiple cell phone videos of a prepubescent females along with texts, one of which depicted a prepubescent female getting changed.

    U.S. Attorney Ortiz said, “Law enforcement has no greater responsibility than ensuring the protection of our children. The rising prevalence of the production, collection and exchange of images of children being sexually abused, and the use of technology to facilitate the sexual abuse of children presents a heightened danger that we cannot ignore.”
    “The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) aggressively uses its investigative authorities to protect our communities from those who seek to sexually exploit the most vulnerable members of our society - our children,” said Bruce M. Foucart, Special Agent in Charge of ICE HSI in Boston. “ICE HSI will continue to aggressively pursue and hold accountable individuals involved in this vile behavior who mistakenly believe the Internet shields them from detection.”

    Warner was arrested early this morning and appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert B. Collings. Both Mueller and Belloli are awaiting trial in Michigan.

    If convicted on these charges, Warner faces a mandatory minimum sentence of five years and a maximum sentence of up to 20 years incarceration; to be followed a maximum term of lifetime supervised release and a $250,000 fine.

    Plenty to read here at Topix.

    Post #77. Again just goes to show how these creepers are so charming. The mom's child was in his class and loved it. Mom had just spoken to him prior to his arrest. She loved how he knew little things about her child. Then the poor woman said all she did was felt like throwing up.

    Oh, that is so darn creepy. The poor Mom. That is the profile of a person who shows up posting on WS. Lost her sense of trust and belief in innocence. Changed the entire family's life. That's really sad. We do have the slimy guys to thank for that.

    Isn't it interesting how these cases unravel just a bit at a time? I envision this "situation room" with a huge global map and pins literally filling up every country. They're baling but the sludge just keeps rising.

    Interesting that this guy shows up on two threads.

    http://www.boston.com/news/local/ma..._fitness_teacher_pleads_guilty_to_child_porn/

    Mass. fitness teacher pleads guilty to child porn

    "BOSTON—A Massachusetts man who taught fitness and education classes for young children has pleaded guilty to child pornography charges. Brad Warner of Acton entered the plea Friday in federal court in Boston. He could face up 20 years on a charge of receiving child pornography and up to 10 years on a charge of possessing it...."

    and

    "...Prosecutors said he knowingly received video files showing minors engaged in sexual acts. He also was accused of sending a Michigan man cell phone videos of prepubescent girls, one showing a girl getting changed. The 33-year-old Warner is a co-founder of HammelFit, a fitness program for children under the age of 7 that was offered at some child care centers...."

    Area youth-fitness teacher pleads guilty to child porn

    "....According to a federal affidavit, Warner exchanged hundreds of explicit emails, including one in which he promised to send back "UNBELIEVABLE" pictures of a young girl he'd been spending time with. Prosecutors also said Warner received a video of a 7-year-old girl, who is believed to have been drugged, performing oral sex and having her genitals touched by a naked man...."

    and

    "....Warner is the co-founder of HammelFit, a fitness program that was offered to children under age 7 at Next Generation Children's Centers. The chain has 10 locations in eastern Massachusetts, including one in Westford...."

    and

    "...."It is a surprise," said [a] parent, who asked not to be identified. "He seemed like a fun guy, nice guy."

    The HammelFit website said Warner worked as a preschool and elementary-school teacher for more than three years. It also stated he was a director at a summer sports camp....."

    Sounds like there's still LOTS of investigative work to be done. He really thought he had himself set up, didn't he? Groomed the parents and his employers too.

    Heights man sentenced for child porn production
    May 13, 2011

    "A Dearborn Heights man who filmed a seven-year-old girl engaging in sexual acts was sentenced today to 35 years in federal prison. John Belloli, 51, pleaded guilty in November to production and possession of child pornography...."

    and

    "...Co-defendant Robert John Mueller pleaded guilty to two counts of production of child pornography on Tuesday..."

    and

    "....in June, 2009 the defendants sedated a minor child with prescription sleep medication and photographed one another engaging in sexually explicit conduct with the minor. Both defendants then downloaded the photographs to their computers. Search warrants executed at the homes of both defendants each revealed in excess of 600 images of child pornography, some of which depicted prepubescent children engaged in acts of sadomasochism and violence. The majority of the images Mueller and Belloli possessed were downloaded and collected from the Internet....."

    How I hope and pray that this child was identified and rescued. But the photos of her abuse will live on forever.

    An article which gives more details into the actual abuse and states that the child is "known". Be cautious as there could be triggers here:

    http://downriversundaytimes.com/2010/08/14/heights-man-indicted-on-child-porn-charges/

    "....The indictment alleges that Mueller used a prescription sleep aid to sedate the girl – believed to be 7 or 8 years old at the time of the alleged incident — and that the girl is known to Mueller. Both men then allegedly took turns assaulting the girl while the other acted as the photographer.

    The indictment says both men “digitally penetrated (the victim’s) vagina,” “performed oral sex on (the victim),” and “ejaculated on (the victim’s) body.” They then took the photographs and uploaded them on to each other’s computers...."

    Oh my. In checking Filly's first post about this ring (at the top of this page), it's clear that the victim is a relative of Mueller's. There were four female relatives who were victims.

    Filly, you're just far too jaded. The man was a fine engineer. He worked hard. And Notre Dame High School left its mark on him:

    "....But, perhaps the most important way Notre Dame influenced me was making me a better person. Peel away the engineer in me, peel away the communicator in me and you will find a happy, positive, outgoing, loving, and unique individual...."

    Peel it all away (as he's sitting on that tack) and he's loving and unique. What he did with the "love" and uniqueness sure hurt a whole lot of people. My guess is that his teachers are dying a million deaths.

    I have sat on a tack before, and it is definitely not enough for this guy. I hope they all get castrated with no anaesthesia. More than that though, I hope the victims receive lifelong therapy and are able to form trusting healthy relationships with their romantic partners as adults. Speaking as the partner of a child abuse victim in which photos were taken - besides the lifelong trust issues, the feeling of objectification and the negative attention prevails in their adult relationships - my partner does not like being the center of attention, even if it is good attention, and does not want to have a wedding for this reason.
