    Post ICE INVESTIGATION RESULTS IN 60-YEAR SENTENCE

    ICE INVESTIGATION RESULTS IN 60-YEAR SENTENCE FOR SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF A MINOR

    A Chicago-area man was sentenced to 60 years in federal prison last week for videotaping and photographing himself as he sexually abused a 12-year-old victim. The lengthy sentence resulted from a criminal investigation conducted by special agents from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).

    Robert M. Skinner, age 41, was sentenced October 19th to two consecutive 30-year prison terms for sexually exploiting a child - one term for videotaping, and the second term for photographing. U.S. District Court Judge Blanche Manning sentenced Skinner to the maximum penalties under the federal sentencing guidelines.

    ICE initiated the investigation into Skinner after he was fired from his job as a computer technician in April 2006. His former employer notified federal authorities after discovering what appeared to be images of child pornography on his work laptop computer. ICE agents conducted a forensic exam of the laptop and discovered nude photographs of the 12-year-old.

    ICE agents, in conjunction with the Elgin Police Department, executed a federal search warrant May 1, 2006, at Skinner’s Elgin, Illinois, residence. Numerous computers and other media were seized by ICE, including a videotape depicting Skinner having sex with the 12-year-old victim. ICE agents arrested Skinner at the scene. Skinner pleaded guilty June 26th to two counts of sexually exploiting a minor.

    “All children have an absolute right to grow up free from the fear of being sexually exploited,” said Elissa A. Brown, special agent-in-charge of the ICE Office of Investigations in Chicago. “ICE is committed to protecting children who can’t protect themselves, and we will relentlessly pursue anyone who physically abuses or sexually exploits our kids.”

    The investigation into Skinner was part of Operation Predator, a national ICE initiative that protects children by investigating and presenting for prosecution pedophiles, Internet predators, human traffickers, international sex tourists, and other predatory criminals. Since Operation Predator was launched in July 2003, ICE agents have arrested more than 10,000 child predators and sex offenders nationwide.

    Nice job.
    And Shepards we shall be,
    for thee, My Lord, for thee,
    Power hath descended forth from Thy hand,
    That our feet may swiftly carry out Thy Command.
    So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
    And teeming with souls will it ever be.
    In Nomine Patris, Et Filli, Et Spiritus Sancti.

    With a name like "Robert Skinner" my guess is he's legal.

    He was probably sending/receiving items from other countries that are illegal here.

    Yes, I am aware he is legal. It was a jab at ICE for focusing on other things besides illegal immigrants.

    As you notice in the article, sending and or receiving any article was not mentioned in the article.

    As far as the name "Robert Skinner" meaning he's legal, nope, it just means he isn't ethnic.


    First things first people.

    Yes, ICE has the word "Immigration" in it's name. But, as BIG has stated before, ICE does more than just immigration. That may be all you see or is all you're concerned with, but as you agencies are made up of more than just patrol, ICE is more than just "Immigration".

    ICE can be broken down into several parts, but the three that will concern you most are FPS (Federal Protective Service), DRO (Office of Detention and Removal Operation) sand OI (Office of Investigations).

    FPS, has nothing to do with immigration.

    DRO, is all immigration, all the time.

    OI, has three programs out of at least nine, which deal with immigration to varying degrees. One of which deals with those who traffick in people.

    The other OI programs do not fixate, nor necessarily work immigration. If the person they arrest happens to be a foreigner, be they legal or illegal, has nothing to do with immigration, they were just making an arrest.

    Secondly, one cannot base whether someone is here, legal or otherwise based on their name. When ICE, USBP or CBP encounter illegal aliens or aliens attempting to enter illegally, be it crossing the border or using a altered or fraudulent passport, they do so with people from all over the globe. Not just so whose names end in "EZ".

    Well it was "C" that made me wonder if maybe the child porn going internationally (either published or online) is what got them involved.

    Like as has been said, ICE focuses on more than just Immigration, because ICE has more responsibilities than just immigration.

    BIG could chide your department for focusing on more than just traffic control.

    As the article said, it was the fact that it was reported, is what got them involved.

    Ya know, the more BIG reads this, the more BIG thinks you two are not going to get along. But that isn't your fault. BIG just hates an ignorant bitch is all.
