Man gets 982 years jail after giving free tattoos in exchange for child sex

By Your Jewish News | January 25th 2013

A man was arrested, charged and convicted after he tattooed a young girl’s privates in exchange for sex, according to court proceedings in Pennsylvania.

The serial pedophile in Pennsylvania who tattooed the minor in exchange for sex will spend the rest of his life in prison including for the crimes he committed against 15 other children.

 A Bucks County judge sentenced 36-year-old Walter Meyerle Thursday, to between 494 to 982 years in prison.

The judge found Meyerle guilty in August of 170 counts of sexually abusing under age children of  between 4 and 7 years-old. The crimes occurred over a 13 year period, from 1997 to 2010.

Meyerle, of Falls Township, was arrested in May 2011 after police said he tattooed a girl in exchange for sexual favours.

The investigation led authorities to identify other victims, most of them children of friends and girlfriends of Meyerle.

The local newspaper reported that the sentencing hearing took nearly four hours to the many victims impact statements.
