24-year-old Joshua Austin of Perry, Florida, was recently arrested for allegedly having an online sexual relationship with a 15-year-old girl from Polk County, Florida. In case you’re not aware the Polk County Sheriff’s Office is probably my favorite police department in the country. Sheriff Grady Judd has been very active not only in catching online predators but sex traffickers as well.
Austin reportedly met the girl in a chat room and since he used Kik to communicate with the girl I’m going to assume it was a Kik chat room. Being the romantic type that he is Austin is said to have sent the girl sex toys and condoms. The girl’s father found them and took them away only for Austin to send replacements. The father also discovered that Austin was talking to his daughter and told him to stop calling her. I know it’s easy to play Monday morning quarterback at this point but if you should ever find a predator like this talking to your kids you should not hesitate to call police. For all we know this assclown could have other victims.
