Donald Lemery convicted of human trafficking child & molestation…

Former male stripper Steven Donald Lemery  has been found guilty of five counts of human trafficking, three counts of aggravated child molestation, enticing a child for indecent purposes and pandering by compulsion. 

Lemery prayed on teens as young as 15 years old through the Internet  on Facebook and Myspace, lied about his age lewered them to his home, had sex with them and then pimped out for gay prostitution.

A jury took less than two hours Friday to find him guilty.  It is believed to be one of the first convictions of human trafficking of males for sexual purposes since the charge became law.

Under sentencing guidelines the 38-year-old, who also went by the name Steven Lang, could serve between 25 to 50 years for human trafficking and 25 to life on the aggravated child molestation charges.

A transgender adult entertainer named Christopher Andrew Lynch, who also lived in Lemery’s home, was also accused in this case as a result of the investigation. Accusations are that his victims were also forced to have sex with men for money.

Lynch, who performed in Atlanta drag shows under the name Pasha Nicole, received a 30-year sentence earlier this year after pleading guilty to two counts of sexual exploitation of a child, pimping a victim under the age of 18 and pandering by compulsion. He will serve the first 14 years of the sentence in prison.

I have no tolerance for crimes against children…none.
