Unfortunately, the only thing they learn is how to get away with it. If you know a single man who has befriended your son or daughter, QUESTION IT, I don't care what the cover up for the "relationship" is.

The sad part is that this was not a single man. He is married and has children of his own. Parents should be cautious of ANYONE their child may meet online. What's worse is that most parents probably don't even know when their kids are online, what they are doing online or who they are meeting while online.

The best punishment this guy can get is a nice long stay in prison. At least the bad guys know how to treat child molesters! I say quick trial and send him off!!

What an idiot...Like some 14 year old girl would find a man in his mid 40's attractive??? He would be lucky to find a 25 year old that found him attractive. I love watching these types of guys on Dateline break down and cry when they get caught.

Headline: Man to stand trial in Torrance on soliciting a minor charge.

Actual fact: Superior Court Judge Laura Ellison said there was sufficient evidence to hold Mellott for trial on one count of communicating with a minor for lewd and lascivious behavior.

That is NOT SOLICITING, another example of the inaccurate reporting by the lazy Daily Breeze.
