Bryn Mawr Banker Faces Sex Crime Charges

By Pattie Price

A Bryn Mawr banker waived a hearing on charges relating to sex with minors, Aug. 15, after testimony began, during a hearing before Magisterial District Judge Dave Lang.

Andrew Milligan, 35, is facing 29 counts of possession of child pornography, 29 counts of criminal use of communication facility, one count of corruption of minors, and photographing sexual acts. In exchange for the waiver the charge of contact with a minor relating to sexual offences was withdrawn.

The charges stem from an investigation initiated be Delaware County CID Detectives Lisa Carroll and Ed Pisani, Aug. 23, 2012 when they were contacted by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children.

According to the affidavit, Carroll and Pisani acted on a tip that Milligan was posing as a 15-year-old girl who was asking other teens to send him sexually explicit pictures. He used the name Stacy Markson.

Pisani searched Facebook and located a Stacy Markson. Stacy’s profile picture appeared to match the images on Milligan’s computer. Stacy was also located on Google, My Space, Motherless.com, Followgram, sexyrepost.com and imgur.com.

Stacy’s birthday on her Facebook account was 10-5-97. Milligan’s birthdate is 10-5-77.
Pisani obtained a court order to identify the Comcast account and learned the account was in Milligan’s wife’s name.

Carroll obtained a search warrant and CID Detective Dave Peifer confiscated an iPad, a MacBook Pro, a Nikon camera, one flash drive, and seven CD/DVD’s from Milligan’s residence.

Twenty-seven videos and three pictures of apparent child pornography were found. Twenty-nine videos depicted children under 18.

Milligan is scheduled for a Sept. 12 arraignment in Common Pleas Court.
