27-year-old Brian Salisbury of Syracuse, New York pleaded guilty to state felony charges of attempted luring a child and first-degree disseminating indecent material to a minor.
Salisbury admitted to trying to lure a 9-year-old girl into sex over MySpace. The 9-year-old girl was smart enough to tell her mother who in turn contacted police. Again while the girl was unharmed a 9-year-old should never be on MySpace.
Salisbury entered a plea deal with the state in order to try to avoid federal charges which would allegedly carry a heftier sentence. However the feds have the last say in the matter and can pursue charges against him if they so choose.
However the problem that I have is that Salisbury was driven to the rendezvous point by a level 3 sex offender who a grand jury decided not to file charges against. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot? A registered sex offender was driving a predator to a meeting with a 9-year-old girl. Do you really think he was only there to act as a chaperon?
To make matters worse Salisbury is only looking at 5 years. Again child predators and sex offenders are not being taken seriously by the courts and I want to know the real reason why that is.
