After the pedophile was ignored in Israel - he was arrested in the US and banned for seven years - voila! News


41-year-old Nimrod Shalom corresponded with men in the US and asked them for photos with pedophilic content of their family members. The FBI launched the LAH 433 it was investigating, but no indictment was filed and the prosecution did not petition for his extradition. Only six years later, when he landed in Los Angeles, he was arrested and tried

Nimrod Shalom, owner of a start-up company, a 41-year-old new immigrant from the United States who lived in Ramat Gan, and who holds dual Israeli-American citizenship, was sentenced last week in the United States to seven years in prison, following pedophile correspondence from 2016.

In Israel, he was arrested for the exact same incident - and released.

But, when in July 2021, he arrived on a flight from Tel Aviv to Los Angeles, he was arrested by the American authorities and since then he has been kept behind bars in harsh conditions. In 2022, in a federal court, he confessed to the crimes he committed six years earlier, from Israel, and in the week passed the sentence.

The incident in which he was convicted occurred about six years ago, on August 1, 2016, while he was in Israel, when he made contact on the messaging app "KIK", with someone who later turned out to be an American secret agent operating from Washington.

Shalom asked the man in front of him if he had a daughter, how old she was, and if he had "played" with her sexually.

When the agent told him that he had a "nine-year-old girl", Nimrod Shalom responded by saying that he himself was "sexually active with his four-year-old daughter" and sent the agent a picture of "her".

Shalom even added that he is "not in the United States" and that where he lives "no one cares what you do".

Then he sent the agent blatantly sexually repulsive photos of the girl he introduced as his "four-year-old daughter", and asked that the man in front of him also send him photos of his daughter, fully nude, while giving him precise instructions as to what positions he meant.

He also asked him to let him know when the daughter was coming, so they could "play with her".

The United States reported the case to Israel, and the very next day he was arrested by the investigators of the 433 LAHB unit. The investigators found that Shalom had no children at all and the photos he sent were produced commercially. According to the Americans, in the testimony obtained from him by the Israel Police, he admitted that he used the online application and posed as a father with access to the girl, in order to persuade people to send him more pedophile material.23 more images of pedophile content were found on his mobile phone, including those sent to the agent.

He was later brought before the vice president of the Rishon Lezion Magistrate's Court, who extended his detention.

According to him, Shalom said that he was "confused by the situation" and that "it is not as serious as what you heard."

A few days later he was released.

In 2017, Israel informed the United States that it would not file an indictment against him, despite the suspicions against him, his pedophile past, and even though the judge noted that a five-year suspended prison sentence is pending against him.

The American authorities did not give up and in 2019 they filed the indictment against him in the United States, and requested his extradition.

But the Israeli attorney's office did not petition for extradition either, and Shalom was arrested at the Los Angeles airport only when he landed in the United States last year, five years after the incident.

"The defendant's conduct was extremely serious," claimed the prosecution in the United States.

"The crime was committed against the most vulnerable in society - children. The children documented in the photos and videos that were held and shared by the defendant experienced trauma and were hurt in the most difficult way imaginable during the creation of the photos, and they are re-victimized and re-traumatized every time a person like the defendant views or shares the photos to satisfy his sexual urges".

During the trial, the pedophile history of Nimrod Shalom, who grew up in California, studied music, directed and screenwriting, tried various ventures and moved to live in Israel, was also revealed.

In 2015 he was convicted in California and the police report there shows that his girlfriend complained that he coaxed her into an "open family" relationship in which he sexually abused her two-year-old daughter, and somehow also obtained very explicit photos of his modesty.

During this investigation, the police officers also spoke with a previous girlfriend of his, who has a daughter who was seven years old at the time, and she said that during their relationship he asked her for a picture of her daughter and suggested that they participate in nude activities and sex with her.

A search of him at the time brought up 437 photos and 37 films of sexual exploitation of children as well as publications that instruct men on how to sexually exploit children without being discovered by the authorities, including "How to Manage Children's Love", "A Guide to a Pedophile" and more.

In addition, guidance and a recommendation was found to locate single mothers with the aim of sexually exploiting their children.

After his conviction, he was supposed to be supervised for five years, but he moved his residence to Israel, opened a startup for renting apartments and offices and believed that Israel would serve as a refuge for him and thus continued his exploits.

"His conduct is both dangerous and obscene," the prosecution in the United States claimed before the plea deal with him.

"He didn't learn anything from his conviction and she didn't change from his behavior."

His sister told the court how she always had an older brother and how he taught her to play the guitar, and his father described him as a good son who helps.

However, the federal court was not really impressed and sentenced him to the long prison term.

He also ordered that at the end of the imprisonment,
