David Francisco Pena
I never thought I would be posting a story about MySpace in 2017, yet here we are.
Anyway, 32-year-old David Francisco Pena, was recently arrested in Gulfport, Mississippi, after being on the run for three years. Pena was convicted of first-degree sexual assault of a Juvenile in 2009, after he took a girl he met on MySpace from Nebraska to his home in Texas. Pena spent some time in prison and was paroled in 2010 then was ordered to register as a sex offender. Police were looking for Pena for the past three years after he allegedly fled supervision in 2014.
As I’ve said before, the only thing the sex offender registry does well is to let you know where registered sex offenders live in your area. It does nothing to dissuade all the unregistered ones from committing crimes.
Steuben County Sheriff: Man violates Megan’s Law with MySpace:
Registered Sex Offender Registered for Allegedly Contacting Girl Through Myspace:
39-year-old Henry D. Bossick of Cameron, New York is a registered level 3 sex offender. He was allegedly caught talking dirty to an underage girl from Iowa on MySpace. That’s a big no-no in New York for registered sex offenders in New York.
They’re supposed to register all their e-mail addresses and social networking profiles with the state. The one he used was not registered. Now he’s been charged with a felony charge of failure to report an Internet account and identifier information.
No word on what his original charge was or how he got busted this time.
Just another reason to get rid of the sex offender registry and just keep these scum in jail for life.
