On March 13, 2019, Denver doctor Justin Neisler was arrested and charged with multiple counts of child pornography. Neisler worked at the Family Residency Program at St. Anthony North Family Medicine 84th Clinic in Westminster prior to his arrest. When investigators searched his apartment, the doctor admitted to secretly filming his young naked male patients (some as young as 11-years-old) during their examinations. He also uploaded scores of these images to social media platforms. Some of these images included sex involving adults and children. Prosecutors allege that Neisler gained sexual gratification from the examinations and his license was suspended following the arrest.
In April, a federal grand jury in Denver indicted Neisler with eight counts of production of child pornography, transportation of child pornography, and possession of child pornography. He faces numerous other federal criminal child exploitation offenses.
In October, the social media site Tumblr notified the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children that a subscriber had uploaded sexually explicit videos and images that seemed to involve numerous children. The tip provided investigators with an email address for the subscriber. The following months, more tips from Tumblr followed, alerting authorities that the same email address had uploaded 32 images of child pornography. Investigators identified Neisler in January and in March, they raided his apartment and arrested the doctor.
Helping Your Loved Ones Seek Help After Abuse
If you or a loved one believes that you have been a victim of Dr. Neisler, it is important to contact local law enforcement officials immediately. If talking to the police or child protection seems overwhelming, you may find help by contacting the National Sexual Assault Online Hotline first. They may be able to give you the tools you need to get through this difficult time and take the first step towards healing.
It is also important that you contact an experienced Denver sex abuse attorney immediately.
