    Two men plead guilty in Mobile federal court to 'sex tourism' charges involving Thai

    Two men pleaded guilty in Mobile Thursday to allegations that they made trips to Thailand to have sex with boys younger than 10.

    U.S. Attorney Deborah Rhodes said outside the courtroom that the case offered a rare glimpse into "the nasty business of sex tourism."



    Burgess Lee Burgess of Mobile, and Mitchell Kent Jackson, a Pensacola man who previously lived in Mobile, pleaded guilty to traveling to have sex with a minor and conspiracy to do so.

    Their guilty pleas headed off a trial that was set for next week. The two face more than 10 years in prison under advisory sentencing guidelines, but hope to win lesser punishment by cooperating with an ongoing investigation.

    According to court records, the men ran a Web site called boyhoodparadise.com, through which they met a New Jersey man who set up the trips to Thailand from 2000 to 2002. Burgess, 44, and Jackson, 31, made three visits to the country, according to prosecutors.

    The southeast Asian nation has been described for years as one of the world's sex trade capitals, a scene of flourishing prostitution and child sex trafficking. Rhodes declined to discuss how many people might have been involved in the trips, or whether additional arrests were imminent.

    Asked how widespread that sex tourism is, in general, Rhodes replied, "More common that we'd like to admit."

    Burgess's lawyer, Donald E. "Skip" Brutkiewicz Jr., said his client did not realize that he was violating the law, because he was outside the U.S. when he had sex with children. "This is something that happened over six years ago," he said.

    Why is it that so many child molesters tell everyone about it on the Internet?

    I can just imagine Bruce Reynolds and Ronnie Biggs setting up "greattrainrobbers.co.uk"

    Any chance of "brinksmat.com" ?

    Perhaps Lord Lucan has a website too....
