MI Man Sentenced After Abusing Multiple Teens He Met on Snapchat
A man from Royal Oak, Michigan will sit the next 11 years in federal prison (where he belongs) after sexually abusing multiple teens.
Nikolas Boris Mariani, 21 will no longer be allowed on the streets and is no longer a threat to young teenage girls.
This monster preyed on young girls through Snapchat and even admitted to having sex with one of those girls back in 2020. At the time, she was only 14 years old.
Police also found a 14-year-old girl that was a runaway hiding nearly naked under his bed. She admitted they met on Snapchat and that they had sex.
According to CBS News, DNA evidence linked him to another incident in which he picked up another 14-year-old girl from her home in Flint, engaged in unlawful sex acts with her, and then left her in a Detroit parking lot.
Think about that for a second. He picked up a 14-year-old in Flint, took her all the way to Detroit, had sex with her, and then left her like she was garbage. I can't even imagine what something like that does to a child's mind.
James A. Tarasca, Special Agent in Charge of the FBI's Detroit Field Office:
The sentence handed down, in this case, reflects the serious nature of the crimes committed by this defendant, which are particularly troubling given his repeated efforts to harm and exploit minors. The FBI is committed to protecting the most vulnerable members of our society - our children - and to bringing predators like Mariani to justice.
People like this make me sick to my stomach and in my opinion, 11 years is not long enough.
