    American resident of Pattaya facing charges of sexually assaulting minors

    American resident of Pattaya facing charges of sexually assaulting minors



    Acting on an arrest warrant, Police Region 2 Child and Women Protection Officers arrested a 56 year old American on Sunday Afternoon accused of sexually assaulting two Cambodian boys aged 13 and 14.

    Police arrested Mr. Christopher Lee Hobbs at his home in Soi 20 off Pattaya Third Road on the strength of arrest warrant number 114/2556 issued by the Pattaya Provincial Court in 2013.

    The Warrant alleges that Mr. Hobbs sexually assaulted the boys after encountering the pair on Walking Street in South Pattaya. He allegedly offered them 1,000 Baht and they accompanied Mr. Hoff to his house where the alleged sexual assaults took place.

    The two boys had been staying at the Women and Child Shelter in Banglamung where they were being cared for following a previous case of sexual assault involving the pair. They escaped and went to Walking Street and later returned and reported the alleged assault by the suspect to the Director of the Shelter, Khun Parison, who in-turn informed the Police.

    Mr. Hobbs, a partner in a Drinking Water Company in Pattaya, vehemently denies the allegations detailed in the warrant and the case will now go to Court.

    What a weird state of affairs.

    American Wrongfully Arrested Struggles to Clear his Name


    PATTAYA – Christopher Lee Hobbs believes he was the victim of a set-up and poor police work when he was accused of abusing two boys in Pattaya.

    On June 8 last year, the life that American engineer Christopher Lee Hobbs had been building for himself and his family came tumbling down. The 56-year-old was arrested in Pattaya on six counts of molesting two underage boys a Thai and a Cambodian and faced the prospect of 42 years in prison.

    He was paraded before local and national media and police and his NGO accusers were lauded for catching a child abuser.

    But more than one year later police and the Pattaya Prosecutor’s Office determined the case was a wrongful arrest. It was found that convicted American pedophile Steven Strike, wanted on sex offenses in Hawaii, had been living in the Pattaya townhouse where the boys alleged they were abused on one occasion.

    Mr Hobbs told the Bangkok Post he believes that the case against him was not only one of mistaken identity, but also a “sting” operation involving US FBI agents, local police and a Pattaya-based NGO specializing in child protection, to boost their standing. He is now trying to launch multiple lawsuits seeking hundreds of millions of baht in compensation for damage to his reputation.

    Mr Hobbs had spent four years in Thailand prior to his arrest, working for a Japanese multinational which did sub-contracting work for major companies and agencies such as the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand. He earned an annual salary of seven million baht and married a Thai woman, Somporn, 36, who he has a son with.

    “All I really want is a simple apology after what they have put me through,” Mr Hobbs told Bangkok Post reporter Chaiyoy Yongcharoenchai. “When the police held the press conference and spread the false information, it seemed so easy to do.

    “But now that I have won that case and proved that I am not guilty, no one cares about helping me gain my reputation back.”

    ^ No they want attention so they can collect more charitable donations. Same with NGO's the world over.

    Question why are they called Non-Governmental Organizations? Isn't Ford a NGO, along with Bayer, Dupont etc.

    They no doubt raced past Thai-police owned underage boy bars on Sunee Plaza to go get a Western patsy that subsidizes their fucked agenda. Go get a real job you cnuts.

    Earned 7m a year, and then charges suddenly dropped. Hmmm. Why would the FBI, an NGO, and the Thai police suddenly take an interest in him? What was his connection to the house if any? How did they get his name?

    Strike was known to the FBI as a known child offender, and had previously been arrested in Pattaya for child offences - the only connection to Hobbs seems to have been that Strike had an apartment in Mid Town Villa and used a vehicle registered to Hobbs that was a vehicle used in a juice distribution business which Hobbs had invested in.
    Buddy with a pedo then?

    I've no doubt that Hobbs could have made this whole thing go away a while ago. Especially if he is on 7 million baht a year.
    If you are accused of such a distasteful crime would you just pay your bribes and forget about it or would you be so disgusted by the accusations that you would fight it all the way and end up getting arrested and your name all over the internet.
    Personally I think I would just pay the money and hope they didn't come back for more.

    Not really. Having read Andrew "can I squeeze a little story in, in between my 600000 about Drew Noyes etc" Drummond, all that story says is some pedo looking FBI bloke didn't mention that some other Pedo was living in that place before. However, the Thai cops would have known about it, as for a warrant to be issued, the address would have been checked.

    His association with a Pedofile is what fucked him up in the first place. All very cozy it seems. Very handy. Who's to say that he did not take those kids back to his mates house knowing that as he was a Pedo he wouldn't mind?

    Same building... same truck....
