Eagle man charged with abusing more boys at Haiti school
Associated Press Writer
NEW HAVEN, Conn. – A Colorado man charged with sexually abusing nine boys at a school he founded in Haiti is facing new charges that he abused nine more victims.
Federal prosecutors said Thursday a new indictment was returned charging 39-year-old Douglas Perlitz with nine counts of traveling outside the United States with the intent to engage in sexual conduct with minors and 10 counts of engaging in sexual conduct in foreign places with minors.
Authorities accuse Perlitz of enticing children at the Project Pierre Toussaint school in Cap-Haitien into sex acts by promising them food, shelter, cash, cell phones, electronics and shoes.
Perlitz, of Eagle, Colo., pleaded not guilty last year to the original charges of abusing nine boys. A telephone message was left Thursday for his attorney, William Dow III.
