Thailand is Cambodia's neighbor to the West, and this forum is dedicated to Thai news, stories, reviews, blogs, videos, Thai people and anything else related to the country. A lot of expats have both lived and worked in Cambodia and Thailand, and this area is a place to discuss all aspects of life in Thailand and what's going on there. Most topics are about Bangkok and Pattaya because of their larger populations of expatriates and tourists in those cities, but this is for all things Thai.

Shapiro admitted in a plea agreement that he repeatedly flew from Los Angeles to Thailand from February 2010 to September 2012, where he paid underage boys as young as 14 years old small amounts of local currency in order to engage in various sex acts with them. Shapiro also took photographs of himself engaging in sexually explicit conduct with the boys, according to a 10-count updated indictment filed in 2016.

According to the Pattaya Mail, a Thai newspaper, Shapiro was arrested in Thailand in 2012 after being caught in the midst of a lewd act with a 13- year-old boy in a mall restroom.He told investigators he’d purchased the services of the boy for 300 baht – about $8.50 US.

Shapiro received a royal pardon in Thailand in 2016 so that he could be deported back to the United States to face charges, according to the paper.

California Man Sentenced to 10 Years in Prison for Traveling to Thailand and Sexually Abusing Minor Boys
6 June 2018

A Los Angeles resident was sentenced today to 10 years in prison for two child exploitation offenses, including engaging in illicit sexual conduct in foreign places and traveling in foreign commerce for the purpose of engaging in illicit sexual conduct, announced Acting Assistant Attorney General John P. Cronan of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division and Special Agent in Charge Joseph Macias of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) Los Angeles.

Paul Alan Shapiro, 71, a retired auto dealership employee, pleaded guilty one day before he was set to go on trial on July 24, 2017. Under the terms of the plea agreement, Shapiro will serve 10 years in federal prison, 20 years of supervised release following his prison sentence, and will pay $20,000 total to two victims, both of whom are citizens of the Kingdom of Thailand. U.S. District Court Judge Dolly M. Gee of the Central District of California presided over today’s sentencing.

This case was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse, launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice. Led by U.S. Attorneys’ Offices and CEOS, Project Safe Childhood marshals federal, state and local resources to better locate, apprehend and prosecute individuals who exploit children via the Internet, as well as to identify and rescue victims.
