195 new sex-related charges for tattoo artist

Friday, May 13, 2011

By DAVID HENRY, Action News

BRISTOL TWP., Pa. - May 13, 2011 (WPVI) -- Action News has learned that a tattoo artist arrested in March will now face an additional 195 sex-related charges.

34-year-old Walter Meyerle was charged back in March for sexually assaulting a 14-year-old girl. He appeared in court Friday for a formal arraignment.

Police tell Action News an additional 16 victims have come forward since the initial charge was filed.

Four of the victims who have now come forward are under 10 years old, including two pre-schoolers. Bucks County District Attorney David Heckler says the new charges were filed Friday.

Authorities say Meyerle talked many of his victims into trading sex for tattoos. Others were allegedly lured with toys and gifts.

"The defendant obviously groomed the young children. He also forcibly raped some of the older children," said Bucks County Assistant D.A. Jennifer Schorn. "He had both male and female victims and it is kind of unimaginable the kind of horror that they endured at the hands of this defendant."

Investigators are calling Meyerle one of the worst sexual predators they've ever seen.

"The only time society will ever be safe with Mr. Meyerle on this planet is if he is in jail," said Bucks County D.A. David Heckler.

"My only hope is that this guy gets five minutes alone with SEAL Team Six," said Bensalem Police Superintendent Fred Harran, referencing the elite military unit that killed Osama bin Laden.

Meyerle is being held on $5 million bail and is facing 1,000 years in prison on the most serious charges.

Yet another new alleged victim came forward to talk with police on Friday. The police are also looking into the possibility that Meyerle may have molested his own two children.

Meyerle had nothing to say as he was led into court on Friday but, during his March arrest, Meyerle claimed innocence.

"There's nothing to back it up. This ain't the first time this family has tried to do some crazy stuff," he told Action News at the time.

Meyerle said he didn't seduce the teen, but police say he is a serial predator with a long track record.

He was charged with seducing the 14-year-old girl with promises that he would give her a tattoo, police said.

Authorities say he had sex with her in his home as his wife slept upstairs.

Investigators say Meyerle intimidated his victims into keeping quiet. Police also say Meyerle gave his alleged victims cell phones so he could keep in touch with them behind their parents' backs.

Oh god... a possibility that he may have molested his own children too... With all of those charges Jail and SEAL Team Six is too good for this guy... death would come too quickly... I've seen some pretty nice displays of torture methods at the London Dungeon, maybe they could use a couple of these methods on this sicko...

    • looks like a solid shop!
    • You know, while I was getting tattoed we spoke about the full sleeve, since I've started with the idea to get it done (not in a short amount of time because due work my week is full) and he just said something about the druid girl. But we haven't any conversation about it anymore so it was kinda a flash instead of something wanted.  Then here COVID-19 came and we used to stay in lockdown per 2 months and just now tattoo studios opened (like one/2months ago) and I have to find a window of time where I can contact him. So basically nothing has started yet :)      This is what actually happened with the wolf. I went him saying "I want the face of a wolf here" and he did all the rest, surprising me with that moon etc so I was kinda surprised with the final effect because it wasn't what I exceptecd but It was what I wanted without even telling him the background.  It sounds weird but I gave him "free hands" and imho the result is stunning. So basically I would find the main subject (woman) and the background which suits the wolf (forest etc.). So I wanted to research something in terms of what I have in mind. But still, I will contact him for sure as long as we both have time to spare, finding what I like the most/suit the best  
    • He's a good artist... your concepts are all in the same vein... except the dryad girl which is a different direction. They aren't anything like what he was suggesting though. These also aren't what I'd think of initially when thinking of woman portraits... they are more surreal than what people commonly ask for.  Makes me wonder if you showed them to him yet? I'd give them to the artist, tell them a few things that you like and things you don't like about them... and put down a deposit so that he can start drawing.
