'To Catch a Predator' host Chris Hansen turns himself in to police

Hansen had a warrant issued for his arrest relating to a sex trafficking case.


Chris Hansen, the former host of To Catch A Predator, the show in which a media crew from Dateline NBC performs sting operations on suspected child sex predators with the cooperation of police, had a warrant issued for his arrest relating to a sex trafficking case.

According to USA Today, Hansen had a warrant out for his arrest in Shiawasee County, Michigan, for failing to appear in court where he was scheduled to present video evidence as part of a sex trafficking case.

USA Today reports that Hansen assisted local authorities in Michigan in an October 2020 sting operation that resulted in the arrest of three suspects who showed up at a hotel to have sex with a minor.

On Friday, Hansen turned himself in to police and issued a statement shortly before turning himself in, where he described the issue as a “miscommunication” between the court and lawyers involved in the case.

“The court matter in Shiawassee Co, Mi today resulted from a predator investigation there. Defense lawyers for accused predator Michael Lott had requested video from the investigation. There was [a] miscommunication about a hearing today on the issue. The matter is currently being resolved!” he wrote on Instagram.

On Friday morning, Hansen reported that the issue had been “resolved”

“Justice marches on!” wrote Hanson.

The Associated Press reportsthat Hansen’s lawyer Clint Perryman said his client “wasn’t intending to not appear or to be somebody that was trying to circumvent the process.”

“It was just an unfortunate set of circumstances that resulted in a failure to appear,” said his lawyer.

As detailed by the Post Millennial last year, Chris Hansen has continued to pursue his efforts to bust sex predators. He was involved in a case revolving around YouTuber Greg “Onision” Jackson, who faces accusations of sexual abuse of his fans.
