American Sex Offender Mark Lucius is Working at BIA in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Breaking news from Cambodia can be found here. CEO often finds Khmer news and translates it into English for our readers if it is interesting to expats, locals, Cambodians living abroad and anyone who wants to stay informed of the latest local and international news stories about Cambodia and our neighbors in South East Asia. There are many sources for Khmer news articles and they can all be found here in one place. Most of the media comes out of Phnom Penh, Siem Reap or Sihanoukville, but we cover national Cambodian news from all provinces.

true, read more into it now, but i still dont get why the convictions dates are different
Criminal History:
Agg Fel Sex Aslt-crim Solicit Conviction Date: 11/9/1993
Child Pornography-crim Solicit Conviction Date: 11/9/1993
Kidnapping Conviction Date: 2/4/1987

The defendant, Mark Lucius, was convicted on four counts of criminal solicitation, RSA 629:2 (1986), for solicitation of:
(1) aggravated felonious sexual assault, RSA 632-A:2 (Supp. 1994);
(2) felonious sexual assault, RSA 632-A:3 (1986);
(3) kidnapping, RSA 633:1 (1986); and
(4) violation of child pornography laws, RSA 649-A:3 (Supp. 1994),
after a jury trial in Superior Court (Brennan, J.).

dont really understand some of the American Court mumbo jumbo

I'm confused myself. What we know from the 1995 opinion of the New Hampshire Supreme Court is that he was convicted of the four counts of solicitation and that the court then reversed all four convictions.

The opinion doesn't say when he was convicted -- only that the events occurred in 1991 and the trial was after August 6, 1993 (because the ruling discusses whether evidence should have been admitted that a witness became aware he was under investigation on August 6, 1993). His sex offender registry page says he was convicted on 11/9/1993, that seems to fit the timeline.

The 1994 dates above are not conviction dates, the court was citing criminal statutes that were enacted in 1986 and then supplemented in 1994.

What I can't see is was this guy re-tried or convicted of anything AFTER the court struck down his convictions in 1995. If he wasn't, why was he required to register as an offender if the court struck reversed his convictions? Why was his photo taken in 2016?

It might have something to do with the notation in the screenshot above that he was previously convicted of real life kidnapping, not solicitation of kidnapping, in 1987.

I think this guy's going to have an awkward day at work today.

If he hasn’t committed crimes since then, why shouldn’t he be given a second chance? Why should Khmer-American gang bangers who commit violent crimes at age 19 be given a second chance but he shouldn’t be?
Indeed, let's release serial killers as well after 20 years. What could possibly go wrong?

Would you leave him alone in a room with your kids?

Way too much tolerance of paedophilia by past and present members of local fora.

That's a helluva statement. You may want to walk that back a bit. By saying 'local fora' one could assume that you're including CEO in that group. I doubt very much that Gen Mack would appreciate you insinuating that he is running a website that is tacitly tolerant of what you mentioned.

If you are aware of present members of this forum that fit your description...I hope to hell that you've made the forum administration aware so that said members can be dealt with. Or at least make your accusations known and name and shame openly.

All parents want their children to go to a safe school.

This guy obviously gets off from kid porn whether he's been convicted or not. Would you feel safe sending your kid to spend 5 days a week with him?

I sure hope the school wasnt aware of his background...

Show me where I said that his website is tacitly tolerant.

I'm talking about members who have expressed tolerance of paedos, it's a different thing. Most have been banned, and yes, I do raise flags with admin and people who have been mods/may have contacts, I hope most of you do too.. I find it terrible that someone can say, oh he hasn't done anything wrong lately, let's just let him teach kids. Seriously?

Fair enough...

but you said that there is "too much tolerance...by present members..." that insinuates that there are current members that are tolerant and by extension that the forum has not removed them.

There should be no trace of 'tolerance' because it should be immediately deleted and the member banned.

So in reality there should be no 'present members' exhibiting tolerance, because the forum should have taken appropriate banning action.

Gotta say TG I read it like Brody. I'm just pretty disturbed by PhnomRons defense of the guy (who I also thought TG was mainly taking aim at). Just plain weird. Second chances are one thing but a convicted pedo in a school full of kids....like putting a rapist in charge of a womens refuge.

The original proprietor of Brooklyn Pizza in Phnom Penh tried to force himself on an unwilling 14 year old girl 27 years ago and the expat community seems pretty tolerant of him. He makes a good pie.
