I think you need to re-read the story. It says nothing about him soliciting sex, only that he joined match.com , which by the way is for adults as its a paid service. I agree he broke the rules of his probation, but that's all to this point. Their are a lot of details missing. And thats Newsday's claim to fame. Insite vengeful comments on speculation.

Not even half a cent. Can't you read? If he's soliciting sex from a minor on line, he's broken his probation. And Evasion of privacy? Try INvasion of privacy and it wasn't. And it's not ENtrapment, either -- watch "To Catch a Predator" -- excellent show. I love to see the cops nail these creeps.

Hey CBunny, I don't know if you've heard but to "Catch a Predator" is being investigated. Apparently, someone is suing them for what METSFan is talking about. A decent lawyer can get this guy off, no problem.

Doesn't say he was soliciting from a minor this time, but his probation condition sounds broad enough that the distinction doesn't matter.

DWI convictions should be publicized and they should be followed and monitored just as these disgusting pedophiles are.
Drug convictions should be added as well.
Let's go all out: publish a list of those convicted of criminal fraud and political crimes. I know of a financial services place that recently hired someone who served two years for fraud, and hasn't stopped since he got out. No names, but they've had an ad with a beach scene within the past year.

Wow. I see someone has an obvious agenda here.

I think back in the late 70's i dated a "mike bradley" i remember he had a lincoln-mercury capri...cuz i had a 75 capri...gee wizz i hope i am wrong, back then i had a strange feeling and i chose to no longer date him! "the good lord was on my side" all i can say i pray for the victim and the offender because cruelty is not in my heart!

PS...all i remember is that he lived on jane court or jane place somewhere in the 5 towns of long island...its scary to read about this trash...and to think my mom (god rest her soul) liked him, and i chose not to continue a relationship...i remember being very scared, maybe because i was in my early 20's and scared of dating...well anyway "again i pray for the victim and the offender, because they are both in severe pain, more the victim...

He is a dirt pig and stiil has contact with minor children. He is around a 4 yr old and a 1 and a half year old almost everyday. Daughter allows her children to be with their papa at his station. Probation and CPS do nothing about preventing other children from getting hurt by this man

He is guilty as sin. He is a dirty pig and should be put in jail for life. He is still with children everyday and the said part is the Probation and CPS do nothing to protect kids. A sex offender working in a rural community where kids are going in and out of his business should never be tolerated. Isn't there a distance law for sex offenders to be around children?

What the hell is "evasion of privacy"?? Who was "evading" privacy? His probation stipulated that he could not use the Internet for social reasons. He did. Plain and simple. He should've been in jail to begin with and not being "monitored" by inept civil servants.
Couldnt Agree with you more!!
