Man uses fake facebook to prey on teens, wife stands by him

The Kentucky Attorney General’s office say that 42-year-old Gregory Mathis, of Louisville, allegedly posed as a 15-year-old on Facebook to solicit explicit photos from underage girls. His also said to have used Kik to maintain contact with his victims. Investigators say that when they searched Mathis’ phone they found explicit videos of his victims. I’d like to hear more about how they found out that Mathis was allegedly preying on these girls. Even the Attorney General’s website doesn’t mention that.

The reason I ask is because Mathis’ wife has some doubt that her husband is the predator that Kentucky investigators believe he is…

“So, what they’re accusing him of doing is creating a false facebook account and then using it to get images of minors,” asked Stephan Johnson. “And you don’t believe that?” Adams answered, “No, I do not. Why not? I just, like I said, he is a good dad, we have two kids of our own and I just don’t see him doing it.”

Johnson followed up, “If he didn’t do anything…what do you think brought authorities to your house?” Adams answered, “Like I said, I do think maybe there was something going on…but not to the extreme as what they’re saying.”

Adams said she was allowed to speak to her husband just before he was taken into custody.

She explained, “And he wanted to explain to me in his own words what the situation was because he’s like…’it’s not how it sounds.”

Is it possible that Mathis has been set up or the crime isn’t as bad as the article makes it out to be? It’s possible but not likely. Someone would have had to have gone to a lot of trouble to plant child porn on his phone. That’s some Lifetime movie of the week kind of framing if you ask me.
