MIAMI – U.S. authorities have charged an Arkansas man with sexually abusing children while working as a missionary in Haiti.
Daniel Pye became well-known among missionaries in Haiti as he helped coordinate relief efforts in Jacmel after the January 2010 earthquake. He was jailed for about five months in Haiti in 2011 amid a dispute with members of his U.S.-based mission over property belonging to their home for children.
Following a two-year investigation, prosecutors in Miami have charged Pye with four counts of traveling from South Florida to Haiti to engage in sexual conduct with children
A judge in Arkansas set bond at $5,000, but prosecutors filed a motion Thursday to reverse the decision. He remains in custody.
