SUMMARY:From 2006 to 2011, Defendant Roland Flath from Wisconsin sexually molested a Belizean minor when she was 10 to 14 years old in exchange for money to help her family. The victim lived in a poor fishing village. Defendant also took nude pictures of the girl. In February 2011, Flath was arrested by Guatemalan police and expelled to the United States. He was subsequently arrested by the U.S. Marshals in Houston, Texas. Defendant pled guilty in May 2012. In September 2012, he was sentenced to five years in federal prison.
