21-year-old Cali man charged with MeetMe rapes of children

Feds: Fair Oaks man posed as teen boy on Internet to prey on young girls:

Orest Shaynyuk

Orest Shaynyuk

Once again I have to take the media to task for using the phrase ‘had sex’ when it comes to children. Each US state has an age limit where someone can legally consent to sex. If they are below that age they are being raped. When did rape become such an ugly word to use on the news when that’s what the crime is.

Anyway, 21-year-old Orest Shaynyuk of Fair Oaks, California is charged with having sex (child rape) with two girls that he met through MeetMe. It’s not like Shaynyuk isn’t using the ‘she looked 18 defense’ either. Federal investigators say that Shaynyuk posed as a 16-year-old on MeetMe and raped two girls ages 12 and 15. The 12-year-old has even said that Shaynyuk was allegedly well aware of her age. The age of consent in California is 18. In both cases it is said that he also messaged his victims using smartphone apps.

If you don’t believe my prior warnings that your kids have no place being on MeetMe check this out…

MeetMe allows users as young as 13 to create an account. Parents on the website Common Sense Media gave MeetMe 2 out of 5 stars, calling it a “creepy social network that features racy photos and suggestive talk.”

Emphasis mine.

If you leave your children ignorant to the dangers of the internet someone will more than likely take advantage of that.

KY man used MeetMe to meet TN teens

Man Arrested, Accused of Trying to Entice Minors:

Billy Ray Wyatt

Billy Ray Wyatt

53-year-old Billy Ray Wyatt of Hazel, Kentucky allegedly would pose as an 18-year-old woman to befriend teenage girls on the social networking site MeetMe. He seemed to specifically target girls from a nearby high school in Henry County, Tennessee. Then after gaining the girl’s trust as a woman he would convince them to meet her ‘friend’ Billy who was claimed to be 16 or 17. Except when Billy showed up he turned out to be the creepy 50+ lovechild of Steve Jobs and John Boy from The Walton’s.

Police set up a fake MeetMe profile and were able to capture the attention of Wyatt. Since he crossed state lines to do his wicked deeds that means he’s been charged with federal crimes of child solicitation. No doubt he probably thought he’d have less legal trouble if he left his own neighborhood. D’oh.

As usual in these cases police believe Wyatt may have more victims…

Anyone believing they might have information relevant to the investigation is asked to contact Investigator Gary Vandiver at 731-642-1672.

Parents, MeetMe is one of the social sites that kids are leaving Facebook for because you’re not on it. In a nutshell it’s an even more low rent version of the old MySpace and is nothing more than a hook up site. I would definitely recommend making sure if your kids are using MeetMe or not.

Guy charged in Idaho MeetMe rape

Nicholas Longo

Nicholas Longo

Oregon man faces rape charge in Idaho:

First I’d like to commend KTVB in Idaho for actually using the word rape in their story. Too many media outlets are replacing the word rape with terms like ‘had sex’. It’s good to see at least one media outlet telling it like it is.

Anyway police in Oregon have arrested 20-year-old Nicholas Longo of Brookings, Oregon on charges that he allegedly raped a 16-year-old girl from Boise that he met on social network site MeetMe.

Police say that Longo lived in Idaho at the time of the rape in March and invited the girl to a party after meeting her on MeetMe. The victim says that Longo raped her at the party while Longo says that the sex was consensual. Never mind the fact that under Idaho law no one under the age of 18 can legally consent to sex. So consensual or not it’s still rape under the eyes of the law.

Police also say that Longo moved to Oregon shortly after the rape took place. That’s not suspicious at all.

Now cue all his loser friends and pedo-defenders who will more than likely blame the victims.

My advice to parents is keep your kids off of MeetMe, formerly known as MyYearbook. I hate to use an old joke but it really should be called MeatMe because it really is nothing more than a hook up site.

Pa. student caught whipping it out for teens on MeetMe

Charles Hampton

Charles Hampton

ESU student, 19, faces sex charges; posed as minor on MeetMe.com:

ESU student Charles Hampton charged with unlawful contact with minor:

Police in Monroe County, Pennsylvania (again with Pennsylvania) received a tip from the National Center of Exploited and Missing Children after the NCEMC received a tip from the Pennsylvania based social network MeetMe.com. It seems that someone in the Monroe County area was exposing themselves and masturbating on webcam with underage girls on MeetMe.

That person was allegedly 19-year-old East Stroudsburg University student Charles Hampton. Hampton allegedly stated that he was 15 on his profile in order to meet underage girls. MeetMe staff state that they caught Hampton cranking it on two separate occasions, once with a 15-year-old girl and again with a 16-year-old girl.

When asked by police why he was doing that Hampton allegedly said that it was because he was bored. Yeah right. When most college students get bored they either get high, drink or play video games. No one comes up with the idea of “Well there’s nothing to do here. I think I’ll go through the process of creating a fake underage profile on a social network so underage girls can watch me punch the clown.” Again this is probably not his first rodeo but only the first time he got caught.

Parents it’s not just Facebook that you have to worry about your kids being on. There are a myriad of other sites out there like MeetMe where kids are going to try and get away from the prying eyes of parents. Educate yourself before it’s too late.

Airman charged with MeetMe sex assault of teen in Utah

Luis Salguero

Luis Salguero

Hickam airman booked in Utah for allegedly luring girls for sex:

Man facing Roy sex charges being investigated by multiple agencies:

27-year-old Luis Salguero is an Airman stationed in Hawaii who is from Utah. Police say that while in Utah visiting family Salguero had sex (child rape) with a 15-year-old girl that he met on MeetMe. Salguero allegedly posed as a 15 to 17-year-old boy with the alias of Jon Anders.

Police in Riverdale, Utah caught him in a car in a cul-de-sac waiting for a 13-year-old girl. Luckily the father of the girl called the police reporting Salguero as a suspicious person in the area. Further investigation discovered that he was allegedly ‘involved’ (raping) with underage girls from Roy, Utah. Police believe he may have other victims as well in Salt Lake City.

Now before all the ephebophiles, aka pedo defenders, open their vile mouths the age of consent in Utah is 18 with the exception that 16 and 17-year-olds can consent to sex with someone up yo 10-years-older than them. This does not apply to Salguero since all his known victims so far are under 16. The man is a predator plain and simple.

Parents, once again I urge you to find out if your underage child has a profile on MeetMe. It’s not a harmless social network. For the most part it is nothing but a hook up site and its users make no bones about that. It really should be called MeatMe since it is the internet’s meat market.

First Coast creeper charged with MeetMe sex attack on teen

John Daniel Hatch

John Daniel Hatch

Man held on lewd battery charge:

Nassau County man charged with sex attack on teenager in Clay County:

25-year-old John Daniel Hatch has been charged with allegedly having sex with (child raping) a Clay County, Florida girl. The girl’s age has not been mentioned but is somewhere between 13 and 16. That means she’s younger than 16 for you tools who can’t comprehend things.

Hatch met the girl on MeetMe where she supposedly agreed to have sex with him. Police say that Hatch showed up at the girl’s house with two people, a man and a woman. Police were called to the house when the girl’s parents noticed a reasonable amount of money missing. The theft is still being investigated.

First let me address the pedo-defenders out there. I already know what you’re going to say. “She’s just blaming Hatch for the missing money when she really took it.” That’s all well and good but police seem to have some, let’s say genetic evidence, where they feel comfortable enough that Hatch still raped the girl. And don’t even give me the she lied about her age crap. That’s never been a valid excuse to commit child rape.

Now let me address the parents of teenage girls. Show your kids these articles I linked to. Show them when they invite someone over to their house they don’t know how many people they might be bringing. This girl is lucky that she wasn’t killed. If they had killed her they may have never been caught.

Jersey MeetMe perv sent pics of his junk to a 15-year-old girl

Paul Kleinman

Paul Kleinman

Jersey City man charged with sending nude photos to teen:

33-year-old Paul Kleinman of Jersey City, New Jersey has been charged with allegedly sending explicit photos of himself to a 15-year-old girl that he met on MeetMe. He’s also accused of soliciting the girl for sex, or as I call it, child rape.

At least Kleinman kept his delusions more realistic as he posed as a 26-year-old on MeetMe as opposed to the 18-year-olds that most mid-30s MeetMe perverts pose as.

Kleinman is being held on $100K bail and the investigation is still ongoing.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Det. Paul Han at 908-965-3809 or Sgt. Ted Dima at 908-245-2300.

MeetMe perv crosses state lines to rape a 14-year-old girl

meet-me-logo

Man is accused of crossing state line for sex with teen:

Man accused of taking Hammond girl to Illinois for sex:

Carey Ray, aka Carey West, aka Carey Tyrone-West, (age unknown but we’ll get to that) has been arrested for allegedly taking a 14-year-old special education girl to Illinois for ‘sex’. (We’ll get to that too.)

Ray allegedly met the girl on MeetMe and the pair exchanged hundreds of texts. The girl’s mom finally discovered one of the texts and forbade her from meeting Ray. The girl sent a text back to Ray saying she couldn’t see him because “You know everything. I am 14.”

Apparently that wasn’t enough to stop ray because 3 days later he picked the girl up and took her to a motel in Illinois. Here’s what happened according to one of the articles…

Ray then gave her marijuana and alcohol. After about an hour, he started to undress her. When she objected, he told her he had paid for the room and wanted to use it. He then held her down and had sex with her without a condom, despite the girl trying to fight him off, the affidavit claims.

Held her down and ‘had sex’ huh? After she said no? Last time I checked that meets the definition of rape not ‘had sex’. Neither article mentions the word rape. When as a society we keep referring to rape, or in this case child rape, as having sex it makes the act of rape seem more acceptable by our culture. Words matter.

Also it doesn’t matter what his age is. From 18 to 80 it’s illegal to have sex with a 14-year-old girl. If he’s 16 or 17 he raped a girl, allegedly, which is still against the law. And for those people who say “Well she went with the guy to a motel what did she think would happen?”, first you’re an idiot, secondly the girl is mentally challenged by all accounts, third the girl supposedly said no, if it doesn’t end there it’s rape, lastly you’re an idiot.

Pa. predator solicited girl on MeetMe because he was ‘bored’.

Frank Bianco

Frank Bianco

Monroe County man nabbed in online sex sting:

Police: Man says he was ‘bored,’ so he propositioned girl for sex:

No. Wait. I spoke to soon. I take it back. Wonders have ceased. Pennsylvania has produced another MeetMe scumbag. I guess they couldn’t take Georgia stealing their swag.

Anyway, Vin Diesel’s special cousin there is 37-year-old Frank Bianco of Jackson Township, Pennsylvania. He’s been charged with allegedly soliciting sex from 15-year-old girl over MeetMe.

According to police Bianco posed as an 18-year-old girl and asked a 15-year-old if she would have money for sex. Then Bianco’s alter ego said that if the girl was interested there’s a 26-year-old man who would be interested. The girl then received the number to Bianco’s cell phone.

Except that the girl was a Monroe County detective. When Bianco showed up for the meet in Stroud Township he was arrested. Bianco’s excuse was that he was bored and wanted to see what happened if he solicited an underage girl. That may be worse than any excuse that I ever heard on To Catch A Predator. This wasn’t boredom, this was calculated. He’s not the first scumbag to think of this trick which makes me wonder if he’s done this before and this was just the first time he was caught.

Remember parents, if you allow your kids on the internet unfettered they may not be a predator’s first victim but they can definitely be the next one.

Ga. MeetMe user charged with child porn solicitation

Andrew Petronaci

Andrew Petronaci

Dacula Man Accused of Soliciting Nude Photos From Teen:

Dacula Docket Book for Sept. 25:

Wow, a MeetMe scumbag that’s not from Pennsylvania? Will wonders never cease?

Anyway Eddie Munster there is 23-year-old Andrew Petronaci of Dacula, Georgia. He’s been charged with allegedly soliciting nude photos, aka child porn, from a 14-year-old on the former MyYearbook. No word on if the victim was male or female.

Petronaci was only given $5,700 bond which he posted and is now out. Sleep tight parents of Dacula. You just keep letting your kids use the internet unmonitored. What’s the worst that could happen right?
