On Monday, Dec. 21, the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office issued charges on Ian Mackie, 39, of the 1400 block of Whispering Creek in Ballwin, for one count of Attempted Sexual Exploitation of a Minor and one count of Attempted Possession of Child Pornography.
Mackie is being held on a $250,000 cash only bond.
The probable cause statement states that the defendant requested that the victim, a child under 14 years of age, send him pictures of the victim’s genitals, and that Mackie complained when he didn’t receive a viewable copy of the images.
Detectives from the St. Louis County Police Department Special Investigations Unit were assisted by the St. Charles County Cyber Crime Unit during this investigation. They presented the case to the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s office where the above charges were issued.
Mackie is a hockey coach in the St. Louis area.
Although no other victims have come forward at this time, the St. Louis County Police is asking anyone, adults and children, who believe they may have been victimized by Mackie to call (314) 615-8618.
