Crime Roundup: London man guilty of possession of child porn

By Special to the American Press

A 46-year-old London man has been sentenced to five years in prison in connection with a case that began in Calcasieu Parish three years ago.

Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Mark Warren Noyes was convicted on three counts of inciting a child to engage in sexual activity and eight counts of making or possessing child pornography.

“An investigation began in September 2010 when detectives with the Sheriff’s Office Vice Division received a report of online solicitation from a parent of a 12-year-old girl living in Calcasieu Parish,” Myers said. “During further investigation, Homeland Security Investigations Agent Gene Steech discovered a second victim, a 13-year-old girl from the Leesville area.”

Myers said after meeting the victims on an anonymous internet chat room, Noyes began webcam relationships with them and groomed the victims to send him sexually inappropriate images.

“During the trial in England, the jury heard how Noyes persuaded the first victim to pose topless and the second to join him in performing simultaneous sex acts, some of which he recorded,” Myers said. “England Police found 18 pictures of the two victims in Noyes’ home and on his phone and computers.”

Noyes was also sentenced to eight years of probation.

“This arrest is proof that children can be victimized by predators from anywhere in the world,” said Sheriff Tony Mancuso. “But let this be a cautionary tale to them that we will do whatever it takes to find them.”
