A Florida pedophile and child sex predator who has been wanted for almost two decades have finally been brought to justice.
Police say that 41-year-old Derrick R. Sepp is now facing multiple charges of predatory criminal sexual assault and aggravated criminal sexual abuse.
Law enforcement claims that he sexually abused a 12-year-old boy who lived in Troy, Illinois back in 2002 and 2003.
Sepp was also sentenced to prison in 2008 in Polk County, Florida, and somehow managed to get released without facing justice for his crimes in Illinois. Just another sign that once a pedophile always a pedophile.
Typical when sexual predators flee to other states they continue to pursue their pedophile nature and commit other crimes towards children. There's a possibility that this man could have committed more crimes against children who simply cannot identify him.
Troy Police Department is asking for anyone else who may have had contact with Sepp or recognized him from other sexual assault related crimes to call them at (618) 667-6731.
