Evil Clown Drummer Gets 19 Years in Child Porn Case

Categories: WTF

Here is the full press release issued after Evanick pleaded guilty to the charge:

A Collinsville man pled guilty on July 22, 2013, to Production of Child Pornography, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 2251(a), the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Illinois, Stephen R. Wigginton, announced today. Martin L. Evanick, a/k/a "Vlad," 31, Collinsville, IL, faces a term of imprisonment of not less than fifteen (15) years but not more than thirty (30) years, a fine up to $250,000, and a term of supervised release of five (5) years to life. Sentencing is scheduled for November 4, 2013, in East St. Louis, Illinois. Evanick has been in the custody of the United States Marshals Service since his arraignment on October 19, 2012. The investigation began on April 21, 2012, when the victim's mother contacted the Collinsville Police Department regarding a possible sexual assault on her 16 year old minor daughter by a 30 year old man, later identified as Defendant Martin L. Evanick. During interviews with authorities, the victim revealed that she had a sexual relationship with Evanick, and that Evanick had also taken nude pictures of her using his cellular telephone. During the investigation, Evanick's cellular telephone was found to contain four photographs of the victim, taken when she was 17 years old, that constituted child pornography. In an interview with agents, Evanick admitted taking the sexually explicit photos of the victim.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorney's Office and the Criminal Division's Child Exploitation and Obscenity Section, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state, and local resources to locate, apprehend, and prosecute individuals who sexually exploit children, and to identify and rescue victims.

The case was investigated by the Collinsville, Illinois, Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Metro East Cyber Crimes and Analysis Task Force. The case is assigned to Assistant United States Attorney Angela Scott.

What a dumb ass! Didn't he know he can't have sex w/ underage girls until he sold millions of records and had a record label to "fix" things for him?

If you willingly and knowingly watch child porn, you are just as guilty as the one who produced it. I hope he's the next prison bitch.

I actually agree. I remember what it was like to be 17 and I knew full well what I was doing. Furthermore, he was dating this girl. It's not like he took home movies of her and uploaded them on the web. They were pictures on his phone. My Mom wouldn't have let me go see metal shows at that age unless my older sister was with me. And she always was. The way I see it, this mom got pissed when her bad parenting came back to bite her in the a$$ and she wanted someone to blame.

He was a horrible drummer the band was so bad used to have to practice next to them . They mostly stayed in their room kept to themselves . I seen the girl he's in trouble over. Total trash guys ! Not sure what to make of it . He's wrong but I'm pretty sure she wanted to be treated like that .... Eh anyway I'm glad they are gone . Just a weird vibe they put out .

17 is not a child. At 17 you are old enough to decide what's right and wrong. If those were his only crimes, he is innocent.

Anyone involved with child porn should have their genitals visciously removed and branded on the face so all will know what they did.

He was charged and found guilty with child porn. Being that the girl was under 18 when the pictures were taken, Federal law declares it illegal. In regards to the sexual relation between the two, the young girl stated that it occurred when she was 15 and 16. So you are correct about the legal age of consent being 17, but she was 17 when it happened. Also, another young girl came forward stating she had sexual contact with "Vlad" when she was 14...

When I was 16 there would have been a lot of guys in trouble for statutory rape then. Were you all not ever 16 or 17? Do you not remember what you were doing then? I dreamed of being able to hook up with several rock band members if I could have back then. Teenagers sneak out and do things to test limits and to seem cool. That doesn't mean their parents weren't concerned.

I think he looks freakish but if she was 17 and if it was consensual then that should be between them. If she were younger then it would be a different story.

If by heated up you mean a healthy cross section of Missouri showed how painfully little they understand basic laws like age of consent, then, yes, it's a hot one. Torture seems extreme, but he is headed to federal prison for 19 years (or whatever that works out to in real time), and I hear nasty rumors about how convicted rapists and child molesters are regarded by their fellow inmates, soooo...

Mark Sullivan

Yes, I agree with the sentence, she's still a child, she would be more infatuated with his status as being in a band, and not thinking he's going to use her

This thread is so tiring with all the different answers about consent. Here... The Missouri legal Age of Consent for sexual contact is 17 years old. There are a total of nine states that have a legal age of consent of 17. Statutory rape and sodomy are comitted if sexual relations involve a child less than 14 years of age. Statutory rape and sodomy in the second degree involve a child less than 17 years of age and an accused who is 21 years of age or older. The crime of Child molestation in the second degree occurs when a child less than 17 years of age is subject to "sexual contact". Mistake as to the age of the victim may be a defense in some circumstances in Missouri, but is not an exception.

I believe he admitted to having sex with her back when she was 16.

Wow you're still around trying to get people to bite at your disparate attempts for attention..... Here I am... I couldn't imagine a decent looking guy with friends and a life posting this kind of stuff. I feel bad for you, you're a pathetic piece of shit. I also feel bad for your parents... They have to know they raised such a humiliating loser. I bet your mom is missing a lot of panties... And they're under your bed. You're the kind of loser that lives in his moms basement and claims to have your own place. You probably spit in people's food at ur McDonald's job. People like you waste precious air... Not to mention all of the calories you consume... At least you keep Doritos, Mountain Dew and Taco Bell running. May want to try some proactiv... I'm 99% sure you are one sebaceous fuck

@tmarkbiz I think you meant "desperate", not "disparate". There are also several other spelling and grammar errors in your post. It seems that you're not very bright.
