A Pennsylvania teacher wanted on charges related to child exploitation and sex trafficking will be sent back to his hometown to face the charges against him after he was caught in the Philippines.
Craig Alex Levin is in the custody of the US Marshals. He arrived on Guam last week after being deported from the Philippines. The District Court of Guam granted a petition for removal, indicating that Levin confirmed his identity as the man indicted in the Eastern District Court of Pennsylvania.
According to court documents, Levin was originally charged in July 2019 after it was discovered that he would travel to the Philippines for the purpose of engaging in illicit sexual conduct with minors. U.S. Attorney William McSwain in a Department of Justice news release, stated: “Indeed at the time of the defendant’s arrest last year in the Philippines, he was escorting a 15-year-old girl to his hotel room. Holding child sexual offenders accountable no matter where they prey on children will continue to be a top priority of my office and the entire Department of Justice.”
Levin is charged with use of an interstate commerce facility to entice a minor to engage in sexual activity and foreign travel to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor.
He has been transferred to the custody of US Marshals where he awaits departure to Pennsylvania.
