Sean Dennis Bendele – Repeat Sex Offender – Pedophile

Bendele was convicted in June of distributing images of children between the ages of 4 and 9 being sexually assaulted by adults.

Bendele used a Google file sharing program to distribute pornographic images of children, and even discussed sexually assaulting children online, authorities said.

Sean Dennis Bendele, a longtime Westland resident, has been sentenced to nearly 20 years in prison for distributing child pornography and for being a convicted felon in possession of firearms.

Bendele, 45, was sentenced to 236 months in prison Thursday afternoon by the U.S. District Court in Detroit. Four months shy of 20 years, that sentence will be followed by three years of supervised release, according to the U.S. attorney’s office in Detroit.

Bendele was convicted in June of distributing images of children between the ages of 4 and 9 being sexually assaulted by adults.

He was caught by the Federal Bureau of Investigation as part of an undercover investigation that stretched all the way to Sydney, Australia. There, another unidentified individual caught with illegal child pornography cooperated with authorities, helping them identify Bendele, who’d used an alias online, the U.S. attorney’s office said.

Bendele used a Google file sharing program to distribute pornographic images of children, and even discussed sexually assaulting children online, authorities said.

He had already been convicted of a felony for a 1992 sexual assault in Westland, which meant it was illegal for him to own firearms.

But when his home was raided by the Detroit FBI in December 2007, hundreds of child pornography movies and images were found, as well as three rifles and a pistol.
