BROWNSVILLE, Texas – A 63-year-old resident of Dallas has been ordered to federal prison following his multiple convictions related to his sexual conduct with a minor in foreign places, announced. U.S. Attorney Ryan Patrick.

 

Donald Frederic Bollinger pleaded guilty June 13, 2018, to engaging in illicit sexual conduct in foreign places with an individual less than 18 years of age, transportation of a minor with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, coercion and enticement of a minor to travel in interstate and foreign commerce to engage in illicit sexual activity and travel in foreign commerce as well as engaging in illicit sexual activity with a minor.

 

Today, U.S. District Judge Rolando Olvera Jr. sentenced Bollinger to 121 months for his crimes. Bollinger was further ordered to pay a $30,000 fine and special assessments of $100 per count of conviction as well as $30,000 pursuant to the 2015 Justice for Victims Trafficking Act of 2015. Following the completion of his prison term, Bollinger will serve the rest of his life on supervised release during which time he will have to comply with numerous requirements designed to restrict his access to children and the internet. Bollinger will also be ordered to register as a sex offender.

 

In July 2016, a minor had crossed into the U.S. illegally and reported continuous sexual abuse that took place in Honduras and Mexico at the hands of Bollinger, a registered sex offender. The investigation led the agents to two other Honduran minors, also in the United States, that Bollinger victimized in Honduras.

 

The investigation revealed flight records, credit card information and money order records showing that Bollinger traveled to Honduras consistently for a period of two years from 2012 to 2014. The investigation demonstrated that Bollinger traveled to Reynosa, Mexico, and stayed at a hotel in the area at the end of March 2016 which corroborated one of the victim’s statements. Bollinger maintained a sexual relationship with the minors throughout this time period.

 

He was arrested Sept. 21, 2017, at the Hidalgo International Port of Entry in McAllen. He has been and will remain in custody pending transfer to a U.S. Bureau of Prisons facility to be determined in the near future.

 

Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations Brownsville - Rio Grande Valley Child Exploitation Task Force conducted the investigation.

 

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Ana C. Cano and Jason Corley prosecuted the case which was brought as part of Project Safe Childhood, a nationwide initiative launched in May 2006 by the Department of Justice to combat the growing epidemic of child sexual exploitation and abuse. Led by the United States Attorneys’ Offices 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.
