Hillary Clinton Campaign Official Sentenced to 13 Years in Prison for Child Rape
Founder of 'Youth to end Sexual Violence' organisation sentenced
A Hillary Clinton campaign official and founder of 'Youth to End Sexual Violence' organization, Joel Davis, has been sentenced to thirteen years in prison for child pornography and enticing a minor to have sex.
Neon Nettle first reported Davis's arrest in 2018 when he was caught arranging sexual encounters between himself and young children and soliciting an undercover FBI agent to send sexually explicit videos of minors.
Davis was arrested in New York for possession of child pornography and allegedly trying to meet with children as young as two for sex.
The head of the organization "devoted to ending sexual violence" was found arranging sexual encounters between himself and young children, as well as soliciting an undercover FBI agent to send sexually explicit videos of minors.
Joel also received a Nobel Prize nomination for his work.
Via the Department of Justice:
Audrey Strauss, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced that JOEL DAVIS was sentenced to 156 months in prison for enticing a child to engage in illegal sexual activity, 60 months for possession of child pornography, and 60 months for distribution and receipt of child pornography, all to be served concurrently. DAVIS previously pled guilty on January 16, 2020, before United States District Judge George B. Daniels, who also imposed the sentence.
U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss said:
“As he previously admitted, Joel Davis, founder of a non-profit called ‘Youth to End Sexual Violence,’ admitted to engaging in the very abhorrent behavior he had publicly pledged to fight.
"Davis, who also claims to be a Nobel Prize nominee for his work with his organization, engaged in sex acts with a minor, recording them, and distributing that recording to others – including an undercover FBI agent.
"Sex with minors is obviously never permissible, acceptable, or justifiable, and by virtue of his non-profit work, Joel Davis was acutely aware of the irreparable harm these crimes inflict on victims.
"Davis will now serve a long time in federal prison, where he can no longer victimize minors.”
Prosecutors said Davis repeatedly asked the undercover agent to take naked and sexually explicit pictures and videos of the children and to send them to him.
Following his arrest, Davis allegedly admitted to officers that he had abused a 13-year-old boy in the past and that he kept child porn images on his phone.
In 2018, US Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman described Davis' alleged actions as "unfathomable" and "sickening."
"Davis started an organization devoted to stopping sexual violence while allegedly engaged in the duplicitous behavior of sharing explicit images of infants engaged in sexual activity," he said.
"Davis also allegedly solicited an undercover officer - whom he thought to be a willing participant – to send sexually explicit videos of his nine-year-old daughter and even to set up a sexual encounter between himself and a two-year-old. "
"The conduct alleged against Joel Davis is as unfathomable as it is sickening, and as this case demonstrates, law enforcement will keep its watchful eye on the darkest corners of the internet to bring predators to justice."
