Slovak police have detained a French man (62) for sexually abusing children in the western Slovak town of Trnava, where he was living temporarily.
According to information provided to the SITA newswire by Trnava Police spokeswoman Mária Linkešová, the man used money to lure at least five girls and one boy aged 10 to 14 into sexual acts. He allegedly archived everything on his computer. The police confiscated a notebook, a photo camera and data storage devices, which were submitted for expert evaluation. The man has been charged with sexual abuse and production of child pornography.
He will remain in pre-trial custody in Leopoldov. If found guilty, he could face seven to 12 years in prison. SITA
