Man Who Sexually Abused Kids In Haiti To Be Sentenced In Miami

MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) – A Michigan man convicted of sexually abusing children in a group home he ran in Haiti will be sentenced Tuesday in Miami federal court.

Matthew Andrew Carter was found guilty in February on five counts of traveling from Florida for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity with minors, along with one count of attempting child sex tourism.

The first count of traveling from Florida to Haiti for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity with minors carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison. Carter faces a maximum of 30 years in prison for each of the remaining charges.

Carter was arrested in 2011 in Miami.
