    Default DR as a hiding place?

    Three US citizens have been arrested for sexual abuse of minors in this country in less than three months.

    P.S.:
    As the latest arrest was in Arroyo Frío I hope it does not have anything to do with Dr. Goldberg's activities there in the 1930's....

    Maybe it won't be so easy once the passport rule comes into effect?

    I does not happen everywhere... I've noticed that there's a disproportionate amount of sex offenders in developed nations vis-a-vis underdeveloped ones. I did a little research, and the cause seems to be that underdeveloped nations do not categorize crimes the same way developed nations, particularly sex crimes. There's also underreporting. A few months ago, a US sex offender died in DR police custody. I looked him up, and it turned out that he was a practicing shrink in Salt Lake City, and sexually explicit pictures of minors were found in his hard disk, by a computer repair technician. He jumped bail and missed his sentencing date, running to the DR. I looked up one of the guys recently caught in Arroyo Frío, Constanza (not Arroyo Frío, Moca). It turns out he was a Sargeant Major stationed in a US Air Base in Germany, where his superiors found kiddy porn in his hard disk. He was discharged by the Army, and later proceded to challenged his conviction in court. He lost, and didn't show up for sentencing, running to the DR. Why do these guys keep running to the DR? They're sitting ducks here!

    So how do they treat those with criminal records? It seems that being 3rd world is it at times quite lax.
    However, I wouldn't want to be caught there doing anything even remotley illegal.

    remember reading in one of the local rags last week about a french person arrested in juan dolio when he was caught trying to rape an 11 year old boy (the boy screamed, attracting attention).
    the local police said it was not the first time he (the frenchie) had been brought to the attention of the police.

    after getting over the initial horror of what i was reading, i realised that he was probably hiding from authorities here......

    providing the information is true (which it may not be), three points i have to make;
    1). why the flying feck didn't the police squeeze his nuts off the first time.
    2). i hope he rots in a real dominican prison (not a softy one for extranjeros).
    3). i hope the frenchies and other europeans forget about him.

    i have heard that lots of people that made monies illegally in their home countries move here to live their life in peace. that seems to extend to those who got into into trouble with law, DR is a paradise for many....

    to be fair i still remember the story about british ex pop star, what was his name? glitter, i think, arrested and convicted in thailand for sexually molesting children. so it does happen elsewhere as well.....

    No fault, no foul.

    Vietnamese prisons are as charming as Thai and Dominican prisons.

    Default Germans in the DR...

    Just curious, but when did the German Ex-Pats start flocking to the Dominican Republic?
