Michael Geilenfeld, 71, From Iowa, Allegedly Traveled to Haiti with Intent to Sexually Abuse Minors say DOJ


During his time in Haiti, Geilenfeld operated a residence called St. Joseph's Home for Boys, which provided support to economically disadvantaged children in and around Port-au-Prince




Last week, a U.S. citizen appeared in Colorado to confront a serious charge. Michael Geilenfeld, a 71-year-old originally from Iowa, stands accused of repeatedly traveling to Haiti between 2006 and 2010 with the intention of engaging in illicit sexual conduct with minors.



During his time in Haiti, Geilenfeld operated a residence called St. Joseph's Home for Boys, which provided support to economically disadvantaged children in and around Port-au-Prince. Shockingly, multiple individuals who resided at the home have come forward, alleging that Geilenfeld sexually abused them when they were under the age of 18.





On January 20, Geilenfeld was apprehended in Colorado and now faces a single charge of traveling with the intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct. If found guilty, he could be sentenced to a maximum of 30 years in prison. The detention hearing for Geilenfeld is set to resume on February 1.


The announcement was made by Acting Assistant Attorney General Nicole M. Argentieri of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, U.S. Attorney Markenzy Lapointe for the Southern District of Florida, Special Agent in Charge Anthony Salisbury of Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Miami, and Special Agent in Charge Jeffrey B. Veltri of the FBI Miami Field Office.


The case is currently being investigated by HSI and the FBI.


The prosecution of the case is being handled by Trial Attorneys Jessica Urban and Eduardo Palomo of the Criminal Division’s Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, along with Assistant U.S. Attorney Lacee Monk for the Southern District of Florida.


This particular case is part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched by the Justice Department in May 2006 to combat child sexual exploitation and abuse. Project Safe Childhood brings together federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who exploit children online, as well as to identify and rescue victims.

If you have any information related to this case or if you believe you may have been a victim or witness, please contact HSI at 877-4-HSI TIP (877-447-4847).


THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME
