SunStar.com.ph reports that David Wayne Altman Greth, a 39-year-old American national, has been sentenced to 30 years in jail for various sex crimes. In Portsmouth, Virginia (his hometown) alone, Greth has been charged with 23 counts of sex-related violations.

 

Greth was arrested last December by the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) Western Visayas Regional Office after the US Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) sought its assistance when they received reports that the fugitive was in Iloilo. Greth was then extradited.

 

Greth, who was primarily charged for 11 sexual offenses-including rape, two counts of child abuse, two counts of aggravated sexual battery and three counts of forcible sodomy-has been featured in America's Most Wanted.

 

According to the report, Greth fled the U.S. and arrived in the Philippines in August 4, 2006. He settled in Iloilo City, where he reportedly worked as an English tutor in a Korean school.

While in Iloilo, he used aliases such as David Altman, Robert Kline, George Altman, and Kevin Altman in his Facebook account and visited porn sites with preferred "friends" based in Iloilo City. When he was arrested, Greth allegedly said, "I did not touch any kid here in the Philippines. Of course, I have girlfriends, but I did not do anything wrong here."

 

The report said that Greth will only serve 23 years because seven of the 30 years were suspended. (There were no details provided about the suspension.)  More charges await him in North Carolina.
