Retired Mesa Police Sergeant Sentenced To 323 Years For Child Molestation

A retired Mesa police sergeant, Russell Dean Millsaps, age 69, was sentenced to 323 years in prison following his conviction on child exploitation charges stemming from a probe by U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s (ICE) Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) and the Mesa Police Department.

Millsaps was sentenced July 1 by Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Joseph P. Mikitish on multiple counts of child molestation, crimes against children, and sexual exploitation of a minor. The case against Millsaps was prosecuted by Rebecca Jones of the Superior Court of Arizona, Maricopa County.

The probe targeting Millsaps began in 2013 after HSI special agents in New Orleans alerted local investigators about a Mesa man who responded to an internet advertisement soliciting images of children being sexually exploited. Further investigation resulted in the execution of a search warrant at Millsaps’ Mesa residence, where authorities seized hundreds of images and videos depicting the sexual abuse of children that he was sending over the internet.

On March 14, 2013, Millsaps was arrested and held without bond. Over the course of the investigation, authorities identified multiple minor victims.

  1. I STILL GET SHOCKED BY HOW MANY EVIL HUMANS THERE ARE IN OUR SOCIETY! WHAT I WOULD DO TO THIS GUY, CAN’T BE WRITTEN DOWN!

  2. On the bright side, with 1/3rd off for good behavior he will be able to earn 107.6 years off his sentence and will only have to serve around 216 years and will be released when he is only 285 years old.

    As long as he does not invest whatever money he has in the Arizona Daily (red) Star, he could be a very rich man.

  3. Oh well this guy is a monster just wait till he gets to prison…. Oh my inmates don’t take kindly to child molestors you horrific disgusting monster hurting innocent kids for the rest of their lives . Sick just sick
