Michael Calvert Warren (born 1964) is the former mayor of Adamstown, the capital city and sole settlement of Pacific British Overseas Territory Pitcairn Islands.

In December 2010 Warren was charged with possessing indecent photos of children and possessing pornographic images, videos and documents involving children.[1] Warren fought to have his case tried in Pitcairn; Crown prosecutors sought to try him in New Zealand.[2] His application was rejected in a hearing held in May 2012.[3]

In 2016 Warren was found guilty of downloading more than 1000 images and videos of child sexual abuse. During the time he downloaded the images he was working in child protection. Warren began downloading the images after six male residents on the island, including the then mayor, were found guilty during the Pitcairn sexual assault trial of 2004. Warren was also convicted of engaging in a "sex chat" with someone whom he believed was a 15-year-old girl.[4]
