A  Cahokia,  Illinois,  man  was  found  guilty  as  charged  last  week  for Enticement of a Minor, Travel with Intent to Engage in Illicit Sexual Conduct, and Engaging in Illicit Sexual Conduct in a Foreign Place. Sentencing is set for August 24, 2022, in front of the Honorable Judge Stephen P. McGlynn.

According to evidence presented during trial, Joseph Albert Fuchs, III, an American citizen, met a 14-year-old girl while visiting the Philippines. Fuchs then engaged in sexual conversations with the minor using Facebook. During those conversations, Fuchs discussed ways to evade detection of  her age when he would return to the Philippines to engage in sexual acts with her at a hotel. Fuchs  then returned to the Philippines in March of 2019 and engaged in sexual acts with the 14- year-old  minor. During this time, Fuchs was a special agent for the United States Postal Service Office  of  Inspector  General  (USPSOIG).  USPSOIG  provided  their  full  cooperation  into the  investigation. Investigation further revealed that Fuchs sent nearly $1,000.00 to the minor over a  year long period.
