Man charged with sexual assault:

24-year-old Jose Linares of Austin, Texas was arrested for the rape of a woman that he met on MySpace. Linares used the alias of Leopoldo Enamorado on the social networking site.

The victim met Linares at a hotel but protested the thought of getting a room. Linares is said to have gotten her in his car to talk but by talking he must have meant rape.

Ok, the internet has been around for how long now and we still have people going on anonymous internet hook ups? While Linares is definitely the villain in this story people still need to practice common sense when it comes to meeting people from online venues.
