22-year-old Dakota Melton of Cary, NC has been sentenced to six months behind bars and must register as a sex offender after he pleaded guilty to taking indecent liberties with a 12-year-old boy he met over MySpace. What kind of indecent liberties? I’ll let the article spell that one out. I’m too nauseated.
Police say Melton picked up the boy in Sanford, took him to dinner and a movie, and then brought him back to his Cary apartment.
According to search warrants, the boy fell asleep on the couch and woke up to Melton “sucking on his neck.” A medical exam found hickeys on the boy’s body and a foreign pubic hair in his shorts.
Detectives said Melton admitted to kissing the boy but denied they had sex.
Ok, let’s review for the parents who still don’t get it. Yes, Mr. Melton is an obvious pedophile scumbag but no one is going to stop him until he gets caught. So who is supposed to protect your children? If you didn’t know you were supposed to you have no business being a parent.
12-year-olds are not supposed to be on MySpace first of all. Secondly to make sure they stay off MySpace and other sites you need to monitor their web usage. If you don’t this is what could happen. I bet the computer was in the kid’s bedroom too.
