UPDATE: Ashland man facing charges in Internet case:

20-year-old Daniel D. Preston Jr. of Ashland, Kentucky may just be the dumbest sexual predator ever.

Allegedly Preston met a 13-year-old girl from Ironton, Ohio on Facebook and MyYearbook and went to Ironton to meet her for sex (child rape). Apparently Preston while capable of allegedly grooming a teen for sex he has no idea how to use Google Maps or GPS. Unable to find the girl’s address Preston went up to an Ohio State Trooper, who had pulled over another motorist, to ask for directions. The trooper says that Preston said he was there to meet a 17-year-old girl. Due to it being late at night the trooper was suspicions of Preston and took him in for questioning where he allegedly admitted the girl’s true age.

Only through the sheer stupidity of the suspect was this girl spared being molested by him. Your kid may not be so lucky unless you take a more active role in their computer use.
