CANADIAN TRUCK DRIVER SENTENCED TO 48 MONTHS IMPRISONMENT FOR TRAVELLING TO OHIO IN ORDER TO HAVE SEX WITH TEEN BOY
“Teen boy” was undercover Franklin County Sheriff’s Detective
COLUMBUS – Serge Beauseigle, age 60, of Belleville, Ontario was sentenced in United States District Court here to 48 months imprisonment for traveling in interstate commerce in order to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.
Gregory G. Lockhart, United States Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio, Keith L. Bennett, Special Agent in Charge, Federal Bureau of Investigation, Cincinnati Field Office, and Franklin County Sheriff James Karnes announced the sentence handed down yesterday by United States District Judge Edmund A. Sargus, Jr.
Beauseigle contacted an individual, whom he thought was a 14-year old boy, in an online chatroom in November, 2007. The “boy” was actually a detective with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office conducting an undercover investigation. Beauseigle claimed to be a truck driver who traveled all over.

The criminal actions of this “trucker” are not tolerated in our industry. I don’t care if you are a child predator from Canada or a cornball pornographer from Nuevo Laredo – such activity should be punished to the fullest extent of the law.
