The Trump Administration’s crackdown on human smuggling and trafficking continues.

Many unborn children may have just been saved from a horrid existence by The DOJ.

THV11 Reports:

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — An Arizona adoption attorney is facing several federal charges in Arkansas after being arrested in California Tuesday evening.

Paul Petersen, who is an assessor in Maricopa County and an attorney that practices law in Arizona, Utah and Arkansas, reportedly “devised a scheme to defraud and obtain money and property from unknowing adoptive parents and others.”

According to the Department of Justice, Petersen would pay pregnant Marsallese women to travel to Arkansas and put their babies up for adoption. He allegedly bought airline tickets and had them hide the motive to travel from Republic of Marshall Islands and United States authorities.

“In furtherance of this scheme, Petersen caused adoption case files to be opened that were supported by documents containing fraudulent material false statements,” the DOJ press release stated.

Those documents were then filed in Washington and Polk counties.

Authorities say Petersen reportedly hid his involvement in the payments, transferring “more than one million dollars into a bank account.”
