Four decades behind bars for Port Dickinson man who led online child porn chat group

DETROIT, Mich. (WBNG) — A man from Port Dickinson was sentenced Wedensday to four decades behind bars for leading an online chat group used to coax young girls into recorded sexual acts.

Christian Maire was sentenced to 40 years behind bars, according to Gina Balaya, a public information officer with the United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Michigan.

Officials say Maire was the leader of an elaborate online chat group, where men collaborated to interact with young girls in a ruse to have them perform recorded sexual acts.

Some members of the group were “hunters” who sought out girls on social media pages and “talkers” who spoke to the girls directly.

The group carried out these action for more than five years.

Maire pleaded guilty in May.

He was sentenced Wednesday at a federal court in Detroit, Michigan.
