These poor, innocent men were set up by the Nazi dictatorship we live under.

If these so-called undercover agents werent on the sites leading these nice men on this would never happen.

The agents should be more concerned with real crime, like officers having sex while on duty, etc.

completely agree with you now i dont condone child sex but entrapment is entrapment they led these guys by deceit which is witha good lawyer is inadmissionable in court becuase the agents presented themselves as some they were not and who knows if these agents initiated the conversations with the guys i have to be open minded on the conduct of the ag office and also maybe these guys were playing along either way justice should be served accordingly but maybe the ag should look at the whole picture because all it takes is one good lawyer to have a motion granted on the grounds of entrapment and all the rest of the cases start going to a snowball effect its no different than a cop going up to a hooker and stating he will give her 20 bucks for whatever thats entrapment the cop cannot say a price so who know whats gonna happen here but the guys from northampton county should not worry that county loves the sex offender he will get probation while a domestic relations matter gets 6 months

I don't know why anyone would think that someone using the screen name "DirtyOlderMan" would be up to anything wrong.

Dear Firefighter,
1st I think Elmo was being sarcastic.
2nd I think your a little messed up and someone should really be watching YOU!
3rd These guys would not have been charged with anything if they were not in chat rooms for children. Everything they did was illigal, set up or not.
4th I hope you dont have children because they should be taken away!5th Obviously you have issues as your reporting on "domestic relations" gives you away, your probably a dead beat or a "beater".
6th You scare me.

Unfortunately, HUM, Firefighter is right. How can someone be charged with endangering the welfare of a minor when actually there is no minor involved?? How would you like to be charged with murdering your neighbor even though you were no where near his home?? You can't be charged legally for a crime you didn't commit. Although it has happened and continues to happen anyway thanks to our wonderfully screwed up legal system. Just look at the man who was just released from jail after serving 26 years for a crime he didn't commit. Would you, as a prosecutor, be able to face that man upon his release knowing that because of your incompetence you just caused him to lose 26 years of a life he'll never get back?? I don't think so!! So let's not be quick to judge people till all the facts are known.

These 4 deserve to get caught. If they haven't realized that police are undercover posing as kids by now, they deserve to rot.

And although some people think they aren't guilty because they were never really talking to a child, I can live with that. If it comes between that or a sexually abused kid, I will side with the cops everytime.

umm... i hope that you are kidding... these dirty where in teen chat rooms and thought they were talking to young girls and you obviously read what they were doing and daying to these girls... if it wasn't for the undercover agent pretending that they were teen girls, these guys probably would have gotten to little girls and could have raped and killed them!! i think the cops should keep doing what they are doing to keep these animals off the street!!!!!!

The intent was there whether it was an adult or juvenile- these perps thought they were on their way to having a good old time with a minor. Thankfully there are law enforcement officers policing the internet because imagine how many contacts these scumbags have already had with minors. The internet has made it easy pickings for sex offenders, too easy. How would you feel if you found out your child was in contact with one of these guys????
