Nevada man sentenced for soliciting teen on MySpace.


Nevada man sentenced for courting girl on Myspace:

Courting? Really? That’s the word you’re going to use. We’re talking about a sexual predator and you’re going to use courting in your headline? Wow, that’s just…wow.

Anyway 25-year-old Scott Vernon of Henderson, Nevada was sentenced to 14 years in the federal pen for soliciting sex from a 13-year-old girl on MySpace. I don’t know why I didn’t hear about this story earlier. I guess MySpace sex offenders aren’t in vogue with the media anymore.

Vernon posed as a 17-year-old on MySpace in order to groom this girl. Thankfully the girl’s mother caught on and called police. Police then posed as the girl and arrested Vernon at an arranged meeting.

Just because MySpace isn’t in fashion with teens anymore doesn’t mean that parents can let their guard down anymore when it comes to predators on the internet.
