SICK: Another Sexual Abuse Advocate Arrested by Feds for Sex Crimes Against Children

Published

on

An arrest was made on Tuesday of a sexual abuse advocate and Nobel Peace Prize nominee charged with his own crimes against children involving attempted sexual exploitation and distribution of child pornography.

Joel Davis is the chairman of an organization devoted to ending sexual violence, The International Campaign to Stop Rape and Gender Violence in Conflict. The 22-year-old was arrested Tuesday on charges of possession, receipt, and distribution of child pornography, enticement of a minor to engage in sexual activity, and attempted sexual exploitation of a minor.

Despite his lead role in the organization, Davis exchanged text messages and tried to solicit videos of the daughter of an undercover agent, a nine-year-old, saying that he wanted to perform oral sex on her. He also attempted to set up a sexual encounter between himself and the two-year-old daughter of the agent’s girlfriend.

In these text exchanges, Davis went into great detail describing what sexual activities he sought to have with the children. During the early weeks of June 2018, Davis told undercover agents that he was interested in children of all ages and sent the agents several sexually explicit photos of toddlers and infants, including photos where the toddlers and infants were engaged in sexual activity with adults.

Davis’ Facebook and LinkedIn pages state he was the founding Executive Director for an organization called Youth To End Sexual Violence, as well as a Youth Ambassador for the UN. Some social media sites show Davis was a graduate of Columbia University, where others have him listed a current student majoring in ancient studies.

He was a speaker at a recent TEDx Talks held at Columbia University where he begins his speech by telling the group he traveled to DC and pretended to be a law student in order to join the International Law Society. He tells the group that he worked with the UN and in 2015, at 19-years-old, started his own human rights organization, working to end sexual abuse. That same year, Davis was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize for his work as Youth Ambassador to the UN.

He claims during the TEDx Talk that he was a victim of rape, and that was his “vulnerability”. One of his main points during the talk was the public needing to acknowledge “our” complicity, saying that the public needs to “call out” the issue of sexual abuse and own it.

U.S. Attorney Geoffrey S. Berman said: “Joel Davis started an organization devoted to stopping sexual violence, while allegedly engaging in the the duplicitous behavior of sharing explicit images of infants engaged in sexual activity. 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.”

William F. Sweeny Jr., FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge said in a statement on Tuesday: “Having started an organization that pushed for the end of sexual violence, Davis displayed the highest degree of hypocrisy by his alleged attempts to sexually exploit multiple minors. 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. Crimes against children such as those alleged are taken very seriously by the FBI, and we continue to work tirelessly to investigate those who place the most helpless members of the American public at risk.”

According to www.dailymail.co.uk, 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.

22-year-old Joel Davis has been charged with one count of enticement of a minor under the age of 18 to engage in sexual activity, which carries a mandatory minimum of 10 years in prison and a max of life in prison; one count of attempted sexual exploitation of a minor, which carries a mandatory minimum of 15 years in prison and a max of 30 years in prison; one count of possession of child pornography, which carried a mandatory minimum of 5 years in prison and a max of 20 years; and one count of receipt and distribution of child pornography, which carries a maximum term of 20 years in prison.

The case is being handled by the Department of Justice Office’s General Crimes Unit in the Southern District of New York. Assistant United States Attorney Juliana N. Murray is in charge of the prosecution.
