I originally posted about Jon Schneider here. He was the employee of the Michigan State Treasury who was using the state’s time and computer to have explicit conversations with underage girls on MySpace.
Back in January in a plea deal *spit* Schneider pleaded guilty to using the internet to commit a crime. What the hell kind of charge is that. He admits to using the internet to commit a crime but the crime he committed he gets no charge for? That’s bullshit of the highest degree.
Anyway, Schneider was sentenced to 6 months in jail and 5 years probation.
This won’t discourage him. He’ll be back creeping MySpace girls in no time.
Michigan State Police arrested 37-year-old Jon Schneider, of Rockford, Mich., for allegedly soliciting underage girls through MySpace.
Police say that Schneider was using his work computer at the Michigan State Treasury to engage in explicit conversations with underage girls under the nom de scum of Noah Bender. He is also said to have tried to meet some of these girls as well. Your tax dollars at work Michigan.
Police received a tip from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. When you receive a tip from them not only are you as good as busted but that puts you pretty high on the scumbag list. It didn’t take long for police to trace his IP address.
Anyone who has had contact with ‘Noah Bender’ online is asked to contact Michigan State Police at 616-647-0804.
Update 1/30/2011: Schneider has pleaded guilty and will be sentenced in March 2011.
