I don’t know if you watched the show “Amerian Ninja Warrior.” I’ve heard of it, but I never watched it. One of the stars of the show, Drew Drechsel, has landed himself in a world of trouble and is the latest “high-profile” pedophile to be nabbed and bagged.
Lately, there have been a lot of high-profile pedophiles and sex traffickers getting busted, which is a good thing.
When President Trump took office, he vowed to do something about sex trafficking, and with all of these recent busts, he certainly has kept that promise.
Mr. Drechsel, who was a winner on the “American Ninja Warrior” show and was 26-years-old at the time, met the 15-year-old child victim at a “Ninja Warrior” public event in 2015. At that time, the two exchanged numbers and that was the beginning of the two-year abusive “affair.”
During the entire time that Dreschel was carrying on with a child, he had a girlfriend, who had no clue about what was going on.
The victim, who is now 19-years-old, said that she and Dreschel would go to restaurant parking lots and have sex, and then he’d order a “carry out” to take back to his house so his girlfriend wouldn’t get suspicious.
American Ninja Warrior winner Andrew ‘Drew’ Drechsel has been arrested on a series of child sex crime charges, including luring an underage girl for sex and manufacturing child pornography.
Drechsel, 31, was arrested at his home in St. Cloud, Florida on Tuesday, the US Attorney’s Office of the District of New Jersey announced in a press release.
Known by his nickname ‘the Real Life Ninja’, Drechsel allegedly began a sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl in New Jersey back in 2015, documents obtained by DailyMail.com show.
During their purported correspondence, Drechsel is said to have arranged for the girl – who lived in New Jersey at the time – to visit his gym, the Real Life Ninja Academy, in Hamden, Connecticut in July 2015 as a present for her 15th birthday.
The pair exchanged text messages about ‘plans for sexual activity’ in the lead up to her visit, the complaint states.
During her visit to the gym, Drechsel and the girl reportedly became intimate inside his office after his girlfriend, April Beckner, left the premises.
Prosecutors say Drechsel laid out a mattress and blanket behind a wall in his office where he allegedly had sex with the teen.
The girl told her mother about the alleged sexual encounter later the same day.
When the mother confronted Drechsel about the incident, she claims he ‘did not deny the sexual activity, but rather stated he did not know her age at the time’.
The victim says that they had sex many times between her ages of 15 and 17-years-old.
She also said they communicated regularly on Skype.
The victim claims Drechsel instructed her to remove all of her clothes and then filmed the sessions on his cell phone without her knowledge.
Police officials found sexual images and video footage of the girl on Drechsel’s old cell phone.
Daily Mail reports that the charges against Drechsel include manufacture of child pornography, enticement of a minor to travel for illicit sexual conduct, travel with the intent to engage in illicit sexual conduct with a minor, and use of interstate commerce to entice a minor. Dreeschel faces a maximum sentence of life in prison for use of interstate commerce to entice a minor. The additional four charges he faces carry a combined maximum sentence of 95 years in prison, with a maximum fine of $250,000 per count.
Dreschel and his girlfriend welcomed a new baby boy to the world last December.
According to his attorney’s Dreschel plans to plead “not guilty.”
