Two special agents assigned to ICE were honored last week by the U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona for their roles in an Operation Predator investigation that resulted in the conviction of Sierra Vista resident Michael D. Flammond, 38, on federal child pornography charges. Flammond was sentenced in October 2012 to 10 years in federal prison.
Operation Predator is a nationwide initiative to protect children from sexual predators, including those who travel overseas for sex with minors, Internet pornographers, criminal alien sex offenders and child sex traffickers.
“I am very proud of the dedication and perseverance Special Agents Cody Nuckles and Greg Kelly brought to this child predator investigation,” said Matt Allen, special agent in charge of HSI Arizona. “Thanks to their tireless efforts, this perpetrator was brought to justice. It’s an honor to serve with these fine law enforcement professionals.”
