An Oklahoma City attorney and Ada bail bondsman are accused of taking trips to Peru to have sex with underage girls, according to a search warrant filed Tuesday in federal court.

As of Tuesday, neither man had been charged in the United States.

In April, a source told FBI agents and an agent from the Drug Enforcement Administration that attorney Michael Dean Billings had traveled to Iquitos, Peru, to have sex with minors, according to the warrant. Ada bail bondsman Robert Pierce accompanied him on that trip and admitted to another source about traveling with Billings to Peru four to six times a year for several years, records show.

Both men discussed their “conquests” — engaging in sexual activity with young girls — with the second source, according to the warrant.

30 trips in eight years

An investigation last month revealed Billings has traveled to Peru about 30 times since September 2005.

On Sept. 22, FBI agents and Peruvian law officers detained both men after Pierce allegedly took two girls, ages 13 and 17, into a hotel room in Iquitos.

In the room, investigators reported finding condoms and other sexual aids, as well as candy and extra-small female undergarments from Victoria's Secret, among other items, records show.

Three cellphones, a laptop, digital camera, multiple memory cards and thumb drives also were recovered during the search and arrest, according to the warrant.
