Matthew Andrew Carter

Matthew Andrew Carter
Crime: Pedophile

To hear his lawyers tell it, Matthew Andrew Carter of Brighton, Michigan is one helluva guy. He’s a military veteran turned missionary who dedicated his life to raising poor Haitian children out of their misery through good old education and bible study.

Matthew Andrew Carter, who also answers to William Charles Harcourt and Bill Carter, sounds damn near noble when his lawyers talk about how he operated the Morning Star Center from 1995 to 2011. It operated at various sites in Port-au-Prince. The residential center’s mandate was to house, educate and care for scores of impoverished and vulnerable Haitian children.

The selfless and oh-so-Christian Matthew Andrew Carter traveled to the United States several times a year to fundraise so the Morning Star Center could continue to operate. The rest of the time he lived in Haiti. At the center. With the children. Unsupervised.

You know where this is going.

Contrary to the defense attorneys’ opinion of their client, the children, the investigators, the prosecutors and the jury saw Matthew Andrew Carter much differently. They all saw him as a predatory pedophile who used his position of authority to prey upon young, vulnerable boys.

Matthew POS pedophile Carter had coerced young boys to engage in sexual acts with him in exchange for food, a place to sleep, clothes, shoes, games, toys, cash and an education.

Can you imagine what those boys went through, knowing that every bit of security they had in their lives depended upon satisfying this disgusting pedophile’s twisted sexual urges? That to say “no” was to result in being hit with a stick or worse — expulsion and a life of begging for food and hiding from danger?

Pedophile Matthew Andrew CarterMatthew Andrew Carter is a monstrous hellbeast in my book. His young victims were totally vulnerable, completely powerless.

But then they grew up and discovered the power of testimony. They began to complain to Haitian national police. And for over a decade Haitian authorities investigated their complaints. Tragically, no charges were leveled against Matthew Andrew Carter in Haiti, and the Morning Star Center continued to operate under his control.

But where Haitian authorities didn’t act, American authorities did. Matthew Andrew Carter was arrested on May 8, 2011, at Miami International Airport, just as he was about to board a flight back to Haiti.

At the time of the arrest, there were 14 boys living at the Morning Star Center full time, and 3 more who spent the weekends there. Some of the boys were orphans, and the rest had parents who were just too poor to care for them properly.

In February 2013 former Morning Star residents finally got to exercise the power of testimony in Miami federal court. During the 3-week trial the victims testified that Matthew Andrew Carter forced them to perform sexual acts on him when they were children.

The victims described how Matthew the pervy pedo Carter forced them to shower with him, and how he’d wake them in the night to take them to his room for sex.

The prosecution charged that Matthew Andrew Carter had illegal sex with at least 8 boys, sometimes for years until they left the Morning Star Center.

β€œHe preyed upon and terrorized impoverished Haitian children who were in dire need of the services offered by the Morning Star Center β€” the very children he was purporting to help,” said Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer.

Defense attorney Stuart Adelstein argued there was nothing — no photos, videos, DNA or other physical evidence that supported the witnesses’ testimonies.

On February 28, 2013, after 90 minutes of deliberation, the jury found Matthew Andrew Carter guilty of 5 counts of traveling from Florida for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity with minors, and 1 count of attempted child sex tourism.

Matthew Andrew Carter, 67, could be sentenced to up to 45 years in prison. I am truly hoping he gets the maximum. Then he’d be 112 when he gets out, and possibly harmless by then.

I hope the victims who were so brave to come forward and complain to authorities about the abuse have safe, happy, successful lives. Kudos to them for their pursuit of justice.

I also hope the other victims are living peaceful, satisfying lives too.

And as for Matthew Andrew Carter, may he fester and stew in a tiny prison cell for decades to come, and then may the beast roast in hell.

UPDATE

Matthew Andrew Carter of Michigan was sentenced to 165 years for sexually abusing dozens of children at a group home he ran in Haiti.

    So the Pedo in Pink Plaid has finally been stopped! Hooray! And if there’s any justice in this world he should have to acquiesce to his cellmates’ sexual demands in return for food, a place to sleep, clothes and so on, and if he says no he should be beaten. He should be made as powerless as his victims were.

  2. Moody Magic says:

    those poor children had so much to deal with and then this monster comes along. Peddos make me sick. I hope he burns in hell.

  3. bengalpuss says:

    “Pedo in pink plaid” He he he, good one 2cute, i’d personally put this turd on an island with some tribe that hasn.t been tainted by the modern world, preferably the head hunter’s from borneo, who will hunt him down, let him know what it feels like to be in need and his life on the line. If he doesn’t do what the tribe say, then they can have their wicked way with him. The haiti goverment/Authorities should be ashamed of themselves, knowing what was going on but did nothing, and this went on for ten years, those poor boys. Hope the turd in pink plaid gets what’s coming to him a good dose of bubba.

    My god, i did a comment without using bad language. I should see the doctor i could be delirious with a fever, hence not being myself and not using Profanities.

    • bulldoggy says:

      Oh. my. gawd. Bengalpuss didn’t swear? Can’t be her then. But the head hunters of Borneo idea sounds a lot like her. I am so confused! Anyway, when are those third world charities gonna wise up and check out those do-gooders who are too good to be true? They should always take precautions and check them out before any children get hurt. I wonder if the Haitian authorities contacted the organization running Morning Star to let them know there were accusations about abuse.

      • concerned says:

        He was a disgusting sick peaodophile long before this story came to light… he abused memvers of my famuly for years during the late 60’s & early 70’s. In my opinion when you are that sick there is no way of helping these people and he never wanted it… his own family knew this was going on and stood by and did nothing despite their suspicions! I don’t know who is worse

  5. bengalpuss says:

    Had to laugh bulldoggy, when it says that he “Went back to the states several times a year to fund raise, so that the morning star could continue operating” I bet he fucking did, no morning star, means no more victims for “Pedo in pink plaid” I just love that title that 2cute called him, classic. These beastly bastards are very manipulative and devious, the charity would have thought he was a wonderful man, doing his bit for these poor orphan boys, he was doing his bit alright, he was traumatising those boys, and no doubt screwing them up psychologically, fucking nonce, and that is swearing.

    • bulldoggy says:

      “The Pedo in Pink Plaid” would be a good title for a crime book. You should write it, bengalpuss, and include a bit about how the pervert couldn’t hide from the headhunters in the jungle. No wait, make that his grown victims hunting him down in Haiti. With sticks and clubs and such. I would read that.

      • 2cute says:

        Here’s a different title for you, “Bible Thumper, Baby Humper”. Or “Religiously Right, Morally Wrong”.

        • bengalpuss says:

          2cute, where have you been hiding these catch phrase’s “Bible thumper, baby humper” Now that has to be my new nonce word. And bulldoggy, your right “pedo In pink plaid” Sounds like an Agatha Christie novel, or a cluedo character. 2cute if i write this book, are you gonna be wanting royalties? I wouldn’t like to be sued for copywrite infringement lol. And how do’s this sound “pedo pink plaid, killed professor plumb, in the library” he he he. Look what you’ve done now 2cute & Bulldoggy, you’ve started me off lol.

        • bulldoggy says:

          The only title I could think of is Praise the Lord, Suck my Meatstick (I was gonna say dick but I know bengalpuss is partial to meatstick). Kinda crude I know but 2cute is the poetic one.

          • bengalpuss says:

            How about “Praise to god, suck my knob” It was the only one i could think of that rhymed. Or what about this one “Pedo in pink plaid, your fucking depraved” He he he.

  6. mericanpsycho says:

    Disgusting that people knew about the abuse but still let the center operate with him there for a decade plus! Those young men were brave to come forward and let the world know what this bastard had done to them.

  7. FlyingLeadChange says:

    He named his ministry “Morning Star”?

    MORNING STAR refers to LUCIFER!!!!

    (don’t take my word for it; check Wikipedia or Google it)

    Yet another phony pretending to be Christian yet ignoring or ignorant of the most basic precepts of our faith. They leave a trail of shattered innocents in their wake, as well as many true believers who are stigmatized for the imposter’s actions.

    • 2cute says:

      Holy shitoly flyingleadchange! I checked and that’s what wikipedia says. Wow. I knew this bastard was a hypocrite, posing as a christian when he is really a filthy pedophile, but he was really mocking the faith the whole time! I wonder what kind of bible lessons he really gave the children. Probably all bent and twisted like him.

  8. bengalpuss says:

    Flyingleadchange, your full of little tit bits of information, i would never have known that “Morning star” refers to Lucifer. I wonder if this pedo actually knew this? Either way, it refers to this beast perfectly. Thanks for that nugget of info. This beast, played on those poor boys circumstances, knowing that they were desperate for food, clothing, shelter and money, and bartering with these kids knowing that they didn.t really have much option but to give in, because they were desperate. Im actually disgusted with the haitian authorities for doing nothing, even though they knew what was happening to these poor boys. Surely someone should be held accountable for doing nothing.

  9. pj says:

    I wonder what he did as William Charles Harcourt. There had to be a reason he had aliases.

    • bengalpuss says:

      Never thought of that pj, must be something dodgy for him to change is name. Im off to do some research on the net, if i find anything out, i’ll post it on here ok. Im playing cluedo tonight, i’ll find out what the pedo in pink plaid, is hiding. Don.t you just love that moniker that 2cute has given him?
