American Gets Nearly 20 Years For Sexually Abusing Haitian Boys

There are 11 comments on the www.cnn.com story from Dec 21, 2010, titled American Gets Nearly 20 Years For Sexually Abusing Haitian Boys. In it, www.cnn.com reports that:

(CNN) -- An American school founder who young Haitian men once hailed as a savior was sentenced Tuesday to nearly 20 years in prison for sexually abusing them.

Douglas Perlitz, 40, was sentenced in federal court in New Haven, Connecticut, to about 19 years and 7 months behind bars for abusing the Haitian men when they were boys under his care, said Bruce Foucart, special agent in charge of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) Office of Homeland Security Investigations in Boston.

"We're very pleased with the sentence," he said. "He was brought to justice and I hope it sends a strong message to people who are doing that or who are even thinking about doing that."

Perlitz arrived in the northern Haitian city of Cap-Haitien in 1997. There, he opened a charitable school called the Project Pierre Toussiant (PPT). He got homeless boys off the streets and gave them shelter, food and education.

In 1997, with eight other members of the Bloods gang, Martinez kidnapped, gang-raped, sodomized, tortured, and murdered Brandy Duvall (14). The gang members took turns sexually assaulting the child.
The viciousness of the multiple sexual assaults left Ms. Duvall bleeding from her vagina and anus. That did not deter her attackers, though, and they would climb off of her laughing, covered with her blood. They once showered her off to get her into a fit condition for additional rounds of sexual assault.

Martinez slit Ms. Duvall’s anus open with a knife so that she could be sodomized, or possibly re-sodomized due to the swelling her various rectal injuries caused. In addition to his penis, Martinez brutally sodomized Ms. Duvall with a beer bottle and wooden broom and toilet plunger handles.

During the course of the rapes, Martinez repeatedly kicked and beat the child, including during periods when she begged for her life. One time, Martinez kicked her football punt-style in the chest after an episode of sodomistic assault caused her to defecate uncontrollably and soil one of her rapist’s shoes.

Martinez killed Ms. Duvall by stabbing her, choking her with his bare hands, stabbing her some more (for a total of 28 knife wounds), and then throwing her, with the help of another gang member, down a boulder-covered slope, where she bled to death in the night.

I agree. The country and this one were so busy praising the man that they refused to listen to the children. Only when the older children started abusing the younger ones did the authorities start to listen.

Children all over this earth need to be protected from sexual predators and abusers. I think they should have the death penalty world wide for those who sexually rape children. But then again that may pose a problem as well. Leading the abusers to murder their witnesses.

What?! He should've gotten life behind bars for all those boys he molested. However, due to him being white and white people coming from societies that condone pedophilia, he only got 20 years for it. SMFH....

"Perlitz wore a watch that lit up and at night, he used it to seek out the boys, they said. Fredlin Lagrand said he woke up to see Perlitz next to him."

"He gave me a pill that made me fall asleep and when I woke up, I found my pants covered in sperm," Legrand told CNN.

O.0?

From candy and teddy bears, to light up watches and ruffies (rohypnol), these sick bastards will use anything just to take advantage of young people.

Martin Luther King's right hand man was convicted of molesting his daughter for over a decade and he practically got away with it.

If he was "convicted" he didn't get away with it nor practically got away with it.

ANYBODY who take sexual advantage of ANY child needs to spend life in prison. If you can't give them the death penalty give them life behind bars. Out of society and away from precious children. Pedophiles come in all walks of life. All colors and all social status.
