In 2013, over 300 individuals were arrested in a child porn sting in Canada.

According to legal documents, an undercover officer communicated with Gigot online. The pair exchanged messages on a website that is commonly visited by individuals with sexual interests in children, as well as incest. The pair also communicated through their phones on an app called Kik.

An Illinois attorney also faces child porn allegations.

Gigot allegedly texted the officer and told him that he wanted to have sex with a 12-year-old boy. The cover story was that the father of the boy was organizing the event.

Gigot reportedly asked, “[h]ow young would you go…I’d do 5[,] [b]ut 0-12 is hot.”



Internet search engines have implemented technology to try to delete child pornography from the web.

Gigot also sent the officer a video of a boy, estimated to be about eight years old, performing a sexual act while naked. Gigot also sent a picture of himself.

Kik turned over its chat logs associated with the user name “pervyboy20” and a Gmail address. AT&T then traced these messages to Gigot’s phone, and Comcast linked records to Gigot’s home address.

Gigot is licensed to practice law in Maryland and previously worked for LDiscovery, which is a legal services company based out of Virginia. LDiscovery stated that Gigot was a temporary employee there, but that he currently does not work there.

Gigot must wear an ankle bracelet and has been ordered to abstain from communicating with minors.

Do you think house arrest is sufficient for this alleged crime?
