Cleveland is always trying to boost tourism, but this is not what we were looking for.
The Feds just busted people flying here for sex with children.
Four perverts were busted after they responded to a web site that Federal Agents set up. Two men were from Ohio and two were from Germany. One man from Germany was even a doctor who had brought a sedative to calm the 11-year-old he thought he was meeting.
Two men were arrested at a hotel near Hopkins Airport. They were taken into custody by the agents who they had met online and paid to arrange sex with an 8-year-old and 11-year-old.
The doctor from Germany, Dr. Peter Biechl, had disturbing items in his suitcase from lingerie to sex toys. He even had a paint by number set and a stuffed unicorn.
The investigation took 9 months to unfold, as the agents had to be careful not to entrap the suspects.
One of the four men have already been sentenced to 20 years in prison, the others will be sentenced soon.
