Thank God for law enforcement officers such at Detective Warren. My son is also employed by the Orange County Fire Rescue Division and scum such as Lt Kornbrust casts a shadow over the entire department. My son was sworn in to protect and serve the community. Where was John-Boy when he was being sworn in???? Maybe planning his next "hit" on someone's beloved daughter!!!!!!! Kudos to Detective Warren and her counterparts!
In response to TheTruth's comment: "As I told you people, this is what the firefighters do all day whilst getting paid. They only do actual work 1-2 hours per day.".... Maybe that's how they do it in Pensacola, but in Orange County these firefighters/paramedics work "all day" either cleaning, patrolling, checking hydrants, training, etc. And as soon as the alarm goes off they jump into harm's way to save idiots like yourself! My son risks his life every time he runs on a call which could be up to 20 and maybe more calls a day. How many times a day do you risk your life for someone you don't even know???? You need to chill out and get a life!

I can't wait to hear your opinion on this creep when he is tried and convicted on attempting to distribute pornography to a minor. He is a predator plain and simple.
Glad to see you've made up your populist, ratings sucking minds. It must be nice to be Nancy Grace part II. After all, you might not be as intelligent as Nancy Grace, and you might not be as attractive, but you have all the ignorant qualities that make her a star among the trashiest of the trashy. Maybe you can also be a trashy celebrity to the indubitably trashy. Keep working at it.

What the Florida law on this Lamar? Does the State have to prove that he intended to have an actual 14 year old view pornography?

The problem is this. If say John was 14 and he lied about his age on line....would then the officer be facing charges ? Its a complicated issue. Im not defending John.

uhh no... thats wat stupid little brained ppl think. i know many firefighters and their day isnt just sitting around waiting for a fire to magically appear. ur speech confirms your incompetence. OBVIOUSLY u should get ur facts straight before speaking. i think the guy is a perv and he probably has done this before...but his mistake does not give you the right to speak on the whole fire department. im outta here. i wana give a shout out to my HUSBAND who is a firefighter... thanks for everything you do for the community hunny!!! i love you!

ur just as retarded as all the other people speaking from their a*s. wat the hell u think they do in publix?? buy lottery and eat free sample cookies?? NO... they have to eat just like you and me. They need food for station dinner. Where else will they get the energy to drag fat, lazy, low-lives like yourself out of a burning building?? I mean come on.. are you really that narrow-minded? What do you expect them to do? Do push-ups all day until the alarm goes off, with no food or sleep??? Should they nap before their shift so they can stay up the WHOLE 24hrs to wait on you hand and foot? Or MAAAYBE you'll feel better if they packed a lunchable or two and pray that it will be enough to keep them out of our "fire-fighter forbidden" grocery stores.... MORON..

Lamar, you need to study the way the law deals with "intent". Intent means everything. As far as the firefigher knew, it was a child. Your logic is really poor.

If you ever get called for jury duty, please do us a favor and tell them you're sick.

And since we are into how he was thinking, why would he think an adult would lie about being 14? That does not make any sense. You may get a 14 year old saying they are 16 or 17. An adult female may say she is younger than she really is, but why would a woman claim to be 14, unless she is a perv trying to attract younger guys.

How about a Mental Fitness Van for Orange County. They have a Physical Fitness Van, Why not a mental one? Any one working for that government for 20 yrs or more can't be right upstairs afterwards.

LOL!!! Well put my friend. I just dont get why people make these absurd and ridiculous assumptions about an entire PROFESSION based on what they may have seen in a movie, or what their lazy friend who may have BARELY passed to get said profession told them. It is SOOOO ignorant to do such a thing. Thats like saying a police officer does nothing but eat doughnuts all day waiting to hear "shots fired" dispatched over the radio. Grow up people... grow UP!!

What is the penalty for sending porn to an adult pretending to be a 14 year old girl?
Here's the absurdity:
"He knew the person he was talking to was 14-years-old but stated he thought she was actually older," the affidavit states.
How could he "know" the person he was talking to was 14 years old when, in fact, it was an adult? Isn't it plausible that he thought she was older when she was, in fact, older?
Does that really matter? If you think someone may be even remotely close to 14, probably shouldnt be sending them porn.

To compare the one fire fighter to the thousands who give their dedication to your safety is really insulting. If your house ever catches fire or you need medical help, just tell the brave men and women at the FD they can go home.

Because most of the smut online is dishonest about ages. Let me be clear: this guy may be a perv and I don't rule out that he was looking to score with a 14 year old. I recognize that. All I'm saying is that the intent really isn't that clear until it can be proven that he knew the target was 14. At least when Chris Benson manufactures crime he includes an actual young girl (maybe a minor, maybe not, I can't remember, but she isn't an adult cop). All I ask is that if we nail these people, we have some real evidence that they are total pervs rather than idiots who can't tell a fake 14 year old selling nude videos of crusty 30 year-olds with pig tails and bobby socks from a real one (or cop pretending to be a real one).

The question isn't whether a real 14 year old would pretend to be older. The question is whether a lonely guy touching his ding-dong while messaging on the internet really thinks the person on the other end is 14. Again, maybe this guy did. But the investigation from these cops doesn't really show much, other than the internet might actually contain a 14 year old girl looking for a creepy old man (which in this case, it wasn't real).

I'm not endorsing this behavior, But I can't believe some you contributors on this forum (calling for many heavy penalties etc.) But why is there 2 standards of justice ok with you ? This guy is writing about acts, but many female School teachers have lived these actions with under aged boys and girls and there is no outrage at their no jail time sentences. Many of you are screwed up.
