31-year-old James Wilson was a band director at Tulsa, Oklahoma public schools. That was until his arrest for allegedly soliciting explicit pics from a 12-year-old Canadian girl on Kik. You can tell he didn’t prey on any of his students, that we know of, because he didn’t use Snapchat, but I digress.
Wilson is not only accused of posing as a 15-year-old boy on Kik but also pressuring the 12-year-old into sending him pictures.
He pressured her, sending messages such as, “You can trust me” and “You’re so beautiful, please, please, please,” according to the complaint.
Both are well established tricks used by online predators over the years. That should indicate that this probably wasn’t Wilson’s first victim. So should all the child porn investigators reportedly found…
Investigators say they found 235 photos and videos of “infants, toddlers and children under the age of 18” engaged in “explicit sexual activity.”
I wouldn’t be surprised if most if not all of those images were obtained on Kik since it’s a huge source of child porn trading. Let’s not forget that no 12-year-old girl needs to be on Kik. While Kik’s own terms of service say that you have to be at least 13 to use their service I would not recommend it for anyone under the age of 18 due to all the sex offenders and pedophiles that pollute Kik’s network.
