More Charges For Man Who Admits At Least 20 Relationships With Boys
Omaha, NE - As if he weren't in enough trouble with the law.
A 62-year-old man who's already charged with committing numerous crimes--including sexually assaulting children, exploiting minors, and having child porn--is now facing two more charges.
Police reports show an 18-year-old boy came forward two weeks ago and told police Daniel Mangiameli sexually assaulted him "on several occasions" between 2006 and 2007. The alleged victim would have been 12 to 13 years old at the time.
In an interview with KMTV Action 3 News last April, Mangiameli admitted having sexual relationships with young boys for nearly half of his life.
He told us: "They felt at ease. You know, they felt at ease, I felt at ease, and that's how it went about." Mangiameli said he would hire boys to help him with his business, which included snow removal and lawn care. "I guess as time went on, sensual relationships occurred."
Over the years, he said he had relationships with at least 20 boys.
Two of them came forward earlier this year and told police Mangiameli took "unrated" pictures and videos, and used sex toys on them and on himself.
Mangiameli said he took them to dinner, bought them clothes and cell phones and gave them rides. He told our reporter he doesn't believe he did anything wrong.
He said he doesn't want a trial--he wants to be sentenced so the boys don't have to testify in court.
Mangiameli has a hearing scheduled later this month.
