Pervert Newscast Director Gets a Decade Behind Bars


Former WPEC Newscast Director Christopher Siegert will not be punching anymore shows where he's headed.

Siegert is getting used to his new surroundings at a prison in central Florida. 

He was arrested and plead guilty of trying to hook up with a 15 year old boy. He was sentenced to 10 years in prison.  

Gossip Extra reports that Siegert pleaded guilty to having an Internet relationship with a boy he believed was 15 then driving to a sex rendezvous.

The boy, however, was a Boynton Beach Police detective.


Siegert was nabbed by Homeland Security December 20 after six weeks of sexually-charged text messages and emails with the undercover cop. 

Among them, Siegert promised the “youth” he met on a gay hookup website to help him make a sex tape.

“I’ll be gentle with you,” one of Siegert’s texts read.

Judge Kenneth Ryskamp is the one who was gentle: Siegert received the most lenient sentence allowed by federal guidelines.

Siegert’s lawyer, Tama Beth Kudman, described him at his sentencing as “lonely” and socially-awkward, and living at his parents’ home in Jupiter. “He still sleeps in his childhood bed,” she said. 

BTW- don't look for the story on WPEC, they have yet to report on their Director's arrest, conviction or sentencing.
