Boy Scout Volunteer Gets Jail Time for Trying to Teach 14-Year-Old How to Give a Blow Job

Michael Engler, 51, of St. Charles.
See you in five years, Michael Engler.

On Wednesday, a judge sentenced Engler, 51, a former Boy Scouts volunteer from St. Charles, to 60 months in prison for using interstate facilities to coerce a minor into sex on Craigslist.

Engler thought he was meeting a fourteen-year-old boy for a day of sexual experimentation when he showed up behind a Brentwood ice-skating rink. Turns out, that boy was actually an undercover officer working for the FBI's Crimes Against Children Task Force.

It all started on Craigslist. In October 2013, the undercover officer posted a M4M, or "male looking for a male," ad saying he was "looking for a teacher to learn from." Engler responded and started to chat the "boy" up even when the undercover officer told Engler he was actually fourteen years old.

When the officer feigned apprehension over meeting up with Engler in the real world, Engler told him he was a volunteer with the Boy Scouts Venturing program, saying: "I get to hang out with young shirtless guys, and some of them wear speedos under their wetsuits."

After agreeing on a time and place to meet, Engler's messages to the undercover detective became even more explicit, writing that he would "Definitely want to go through the ABCs of a good blow job" once they met. Engler showed up as planned and was arrested.

Christine Dieckmann, a spokeswoman for the St. Louis-area Council of the Boy Scouts of America, confirmed that Engler had volunteered with the Venturing program, aimed at high school-aged youth.

"We are disgusted to learn about the allegations against this individual," Dieckmann says in a statement. "The abuse of anyone, especially a child, is intolerable, and our thoughts and prayers go out to those who may be a victim of this type of reprehensible behavior. Upon learning of these allegations, this individual was immediately removed from scouting and has been permanently banned from participating in the scouting program."

Engler pleaded guilty in January.

The case was investigated by the St. Louis County Police Department in conjunction with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the United States Secret Service and the St. Charles County Cybercrime Unit.

Wake up people! Notice that all around you certain 'trends' are increasing at an alarming rate. Men/boy's are becoming more and more sexually hyper and homosexual, confused and corrupted. This is a DIRECT result of molestation, abuse of perverse power, over exposure to all visual aids including media and entertainment images and icons as well as societal influence and indoctrination. Male fraternity's are growing and becoming much more tight nit, literally and figuratively! At the rate that this is occurring it's hardly accidental or natural  but rather intentionally man made manipulation. You can tell everything about a country based solely on how the women and children are treated and valued by all! Globally, women and children both are suffering immensely in this still overly male dominated/influenced world! This crosses EVERY religious border but seems to be bred by the dominate World religion's collectively! Just look at history and recent scandals. Real men of integrity need to stand up and show up for something other than a blow job and/or their own sexual gratification before are society devolves into a cesspool of hedonism.

It's kind of weird how the Boy Scouts won't let in atheists and gays as leaders, but will let in Christian pedophiles like this guy.

Although I do not condone this....it wasn't that long ago that grown men could wed and impregnant young girls. Just a historical perspective.

Rigut when did talking dirty to a 14 year old become consensual sex? Sticking up for child molesters?

The Boy Scouts might want to lead their own investigation is how many boys he's hurt since he has been with them.
