After a three-year investigation that originated in Redmond, David D. Delay was charged four months ago with 17 federal felonies that included production of child pornography, obstruction, sex trafficking of a minor, and sex trafficking by force, fraud, or coercion.

Victims’ participation and cooperation with Redmond police was crucial in the conviction of the 51-year-old man for multiple sex crimes against adults and juveniles in U.S. District Court in Seattle, according to Redmond Detective Sergeant AnnMarie Fein.

Delay is facing a maximum sentence of life imprisonment. His sentencing was scheduled for Feb. 21, but has been reset to April 12, according to a court spokesman.

The case began in November of 2014 when a Redmond police officer interviewed one of Delay’s victims, an 18-year-old Redmond woman, who had initially reported cyberbullying and threats from both Delay and his friend, Marysa Comer, now 23, according to a Redmond Police Department (RPD) press release.

The victim came to Redmond police because Delay and Comer had hacked into her personal online accounts and posted explicit photos of her on her Facebook page.

Comer was sentenced to three years in prison three months ago after pleading guilty to one count of sex trafficking on Nov. 16, 2015.
