Man who lured 9-year-old gets 3-6

Man accused of using MySpace to lure girl sentenced:

I originally posted about Brian Salisbury here. He’s the guy from Syracuse who pleaded guilty to trying to solicit a 9-year-old girl over MySpace for sex.

Last week he was sentenced to 3-6 for attempted child solicitation and 5 years for disseminating indecent materials to a minor.

Don’t get too excited though. The sentences will run concurrently. He’ll also have to spend a whole 5 years on the sex offender registry.

So as usual he’ll be out in plenty of time to offend again. Registry be damned.

Syracuse man pleads guilty to luring 9-year-old girl

Syracuse man admits trying to lure girl into sex through her MySpace page:

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.
