Libertas International, a global organization dedicated to human rights and justice, is proud to announce a significant milestone in the fight against exploitation and abuse with the apprehension of Jaymes Shutle, a former MMA fighter from Arizona involved in a heinous global criminal network.
Shutle’s apprehension marks a pivotal moment in the pursuit of justice. His actions have left a devastating trail of victims across the world, impacting numerous women and girls, some as young as 13 years old. This predator’s modus operandi involved secretly filming individuals and disseminating the exploitative material on various platforms, including his Telegram account and Pornhub.
It was the courageous survivors in Colombia who bravely stood up against Shuttle’s atrocities, reporting his egregious abuse. Their bravery and resilience in the face of such adversity have been instrumental in bringing this predator to justice.
Libertas International extends its deepest gratitude to the collaborative efforts of Homeland Security Investigations, Customs & Border Protection, Interpol, the US Marshals, HSI Argentina, The Argentine National Police and the Colombian National Police. Their tireless dedication and unwavering commitment to protecting the vulnerable and ensuring justice for victims have been pivotal in this arrest.
“The suspect Jaymes Schulte, who appears on social media as a boxer, traveled to Colombia to commit crimes against minors and thought that justice was not going to reach him. At the beginning of 2023, Libertas International met 11 survivors, who came forward to report to the authorities of Colombia and the United States, how they were sexually abused in exchange for money, were recorded without consent and then disseminated on social networks; a tragedy for them, who have been subjected to bullying, attempted suicide and irreparable psychological damage. We thank and congratulate the HSI agents and the Colombian Police for listening to our brave survivors and for achieving justice for them..” said Mervin Gallegos, Director of Justice for Libertas International.
The fight against exploitation and abuse is an ongoing battle. Libertas International reaffirms its commitment to advocating for the rights of victims, amplifying their voices, and working tirelessly to create a world free from such atrocities.
