Sex Abuse Charity Boss Arrested On Child Pornography Charges.

This is one of those stories that leaves a bad taste in your mouth. 

Joel Davis, 22, co-founder of advocacy group Youth to End Sexual Violence and a former UN youth ambassador for Sexual Violence in Conflict, appeared in court in Manhattan on Tuesday.

He is being charged with enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity and attempted sexual exploitation of a minor, as well as child pornography offences.

Davis was caught through an FBI sting operation in which, he made plans to meet up with the nine-year-old daughter of one of the undercover FBI agents and with the purported two-year-old daughter of the officer’s girlfriend”, the Daily Mail reports.

The investigation also turned up child pornography including images of infants and toddlers being abused, which was found in his possession. He has also admitted to having child pornography on his phone. 

Police said that, during questioning after his arrest, Davis “admitted to sexually abusing a 13-year-old boy in the past and keeping child porn images on his phone”, NBC reports.

On his LinkedIn profile he is listed as director of the International Campaign to Stop Rape and Gender Violence in Conflict, a project founded in 2012 by Nobel laureates which now involves more than 5,000 people and organisations.

“In the same period he exchanged messages with the undercover agents, Davis also addressed an independently-organised TED conference, explaining that his first job was to transcribe the testimony of rape victims in Congo,”  news agency BNO News reports.

FBI assistant director William F. Sweeney Jr. said that Davis’ alleged crimes indicate “the highest degree of hypocrisy” in light of his public profile as a defender of sexually-exploited youth.

“As if this wasn’t repulsive enough, Davis allegedly possessed and distributed utterly explicit images of innocent infants and toddlers being sexually abused by adults,” Sweeney said.

Davis is yet to enter a plea for his charges, we don’t except anything other than a guilty plea. 

We don’t like doing negative stories, but we thought the people needed to hear this. But in other news this 11-year-old prodigy has just been accepted into college
