We are only getting the bottom of the barrel. I am suprised at how many people are still in the dark about this. Many more pervs must have been watching the news/reading the paper. Hello ! How could you not know that this is a focus now for the State Attorney's office. You never want to hear the words "Hi, my name is Chris Hanson and I'm with Dateline NBC..."

when will people learn. if these deviance would spend a little more time watching television instead of surfin the web for sex they would know this is a hot button with local and state agencies to crack-down on this kind of behavior.
it amazes me to see how wide spead it is effecting every walk of life on the planet, young, old, professionals, soliders, slackers etc.,
seems like everyone is a little hard up for sex these days.

There are those out there that probably get a rush on adrenelin at the Russian ruelette type of chances they are taking over the internet. They have to know that Bid Brother is laying and waiting for them, they just don't know who,where,or when they going to get busted. Drug users have been doing the same thing for years and years. We see kids driving in excess of 100 mph but have the same mindset. It's always the "Other guy" that gets caught! Personally, I never was one for gambling. I work too hard for what I get to be taking chances like these guys when your whole life is one the line. I made up my mind many years ago that when I got married, my wife would be my one and only and from that moment on nothing has ever swayed me off that decision through out our 37 years of marriage.

Stoopid, stooopid, stoooopid! What a bonehead!

Maybe next time he should just go to CraigsList and post an ad with the headline: "I'm a pedophile who wants to have sex with underage girls, you can arrest me at 2 p.m. at the Burger King in Kissimmee!"

DUH....

Again, what is it with all of these sex charges? Job justification by cops? Did he have sex with her? No. Was there ever a 15 yr old? No. How can you be charged w/trying to have sex with someone who does not exist? I'd like to see the messages, and discussion between these two? I have got to wonder "who asked whom .. to meet & have sex?" And has anyone met any of these teens of today? There's more sex than I ever thought of having... and the variety? Goodness gracious! No adult taught them this stuff... their teaching adults! But, always remember, DO NOT TOUCH...after all their drinking bleach..to cure their multiple diseases..

These guys are so stupid I find it hard to believe they can even work the mouse on their computer to search for and look at porn, let alone operate in a chat room. Their IQ is just a little more than a rock or a carrot. It's obvious they can't read or they would know about all the other stupid perverts that got popped doing the same thing.

if the da office cant make a bad check stand then how can the pull this net and catch something when there are holes all in it... a clown should get this charges dropped and someone should pay all the fees.. not all diamond sparkle when they are cut... I THINK THEY NEED A LITTLE MORE BOTTOM TO THERE STORY. WE all drive .. dont mean a cop can give you a tiket if you have not left the driveway. I can see the stars and strips falling of are flag. Thinking and doing are two diffent things... Where did I wake up today .... HELLLO OUT THERE!

As far as I am concerned, he went to the Burger King with the intention of hooking up with a fifteen year old. I for one am glad this nasty butthole was caught. If there is someone preying on young kids, then yes, they deserve to get caught in a trap. Parents should be more aware of what their children are up to, but unfortunately some children are able to sneak by their parents with things like this. I'm glad he got busted. I hope it actually discourages him from future acts.

Yesterday, I read an article about a 14 year old girl who had a baby in an airplane bathroom and then left the baby in the trash. Cleaning crews found the baby after the plane landed. Apparently, the father is 13 years old. Police are "considering" if any charges should be filed against the girl but nothing was mentioned concerning charges against the father. Then in another article, another 14 year old girl had a baby in middle school bathroom and then killed it by trying to flush it down the toilet. No mention was made of the father. Again, police were "considering" if charges are warranted. So in two separate incidents, girls under the age of 15 got pregnant, had their baby, killed their baby and nobody has been charged with anything and not once has the father's age even been discussed as an issue.

So I have to ask, why does the law treat these cases so differently and not punish people for actual crimes and instead punish people by inventing crimes and entrapping people? I'm not saying this man wasn't an idiot for responding to the ad but it's stupid that the police are wasting their time creating these situations and then ignoring the real life situations like the two cases I mentioned above. If it's illegal for this man to meet a 15 year old girl, then why isn't it illegal for these teen age boys to meet 13/14 year old girls and get them pregnant? And the biggest question, why can these girls kill their babies and all the police do is "consider" charges? The system is clearly out of whack.

So we should wait until the child sex offenders rape or molest children before we can arrest them?
I sincerely hope you do not have children. It is not healthy to obsess over teenagers' sex lives.

The cops are cowards and obsessed with sex.

The prosecutors are immoral, egomaniacs
thinking of their own advancement.

I have never been comfortable with these types of things... it seems to be entrapment. If there is no 15 year old girl, then aren't they arresting the man for a thought crime? I don't see how they can arrest him for travelling to meet a minor for sex, if the minor doesn't exist. And HE placed the ad on craigslist, only stating he was looking for "inexperienced females," the police responded and said they were a 15 year old girl. I agree with a previous poster... I would like to see the conversations between the two and see if it was really the "girl's" idea. It might have been the encouraging words of a horny teen that convinced him to go, whether wrong or not, the police might have acctually created the crime they arrested him for.
