He was setup. It was what you call entrapment.

What kind of a MORON would send their 12 year old out to sit in a car with an adult male she didn't know??????????
Then she sexed him up on the internet to finish her entrapment. She needs a mental evaluation!!!!!!!!!!

How do you think sexual predators are caught? According to the news, when mom found out, she made contact with him pretending to be the 12 yr. old. She baited him in but what you are forgetting, this guy knew she was a kid. He's the MORON and he will get a mental evaluation at taxpayer expense! I am glad he got caught and there are many more like him out there. There are numerous law enforcement projects around the U.S. focused on catching predators on line.

even if I sent my daughter or grand-daughter out to sit in a car, whether I knew the person or not I would expect not to have them be touched in anyway shape or form....That is my opinion,,,,I know this person and I do not want to believe that it was possible that he would do something like this,,but I also do not know him well enough to know if it is possible,,I just hope that the truth comes out..

In the world in which the rest of us live it is necessary for the parents to at least attempt to protect their children. Your expectations aren't realistic this real world.

in the world that both you and i live,,,at least I hope you live here on earth,,,,yes I agree it is parents responsibility and they should make all attempts to protect their child and others,,children are subject to strangers everyday going to school and the mall or anywhere shopping or just walking home,,it is still the person that would harm any child that is wrong,,under any circumstance at all,,whether they were sent to go with anyone,,, that does not give the person the right to do anything,,to say the parent is responsible is just crazy,,,lets say you allowed your child to go on a school trip and something happened,,yes the parent would feel very very bad and feel maybe somewhat guilty,,but really they are not,,,you cannot place your child or any child in a bubble forever,,,so I say it is the person who may have done something wrong,,if they did and the truth will come out....it is all their fault and nobody else....

I live in the real world not in some utopia where there are no crimes and everyone is kind to children. Children are harmed and murdered even by their parents in the real world. Most parents try to care for and protect their children to the best of their ability, but high expectations will not keep them safe.

yes it is true ,,unfortunately there are bad persons,,,and crimes everyday,,this is for sure,,,but to blame the parents is just plain wrong,,blame society but definitely blame the perpetraitor of the crime ,,not the parent or child,....

Hey moral oral..let me tell you something..I know for a fact that the mother did all she could to protect her child..get your facts straight before you cause undue damage to the child evolved because that is exactly what you have done. The family evolved knew this guy for 3 years and he hide down the street from the house and PULLED the child into his car! She walked out in front of her home to her moms car to get something and he was outside waiting...the whole thing only took seconds! If you read to story you would then know that the mother went to police...so you tell me how the hell that is in any way entrapment?? You tell me how a 12 year old girl walking to the car 5ft from her front door minding her own business and some jerk she believed to be a friend...did this to her and it is anyone's fault but his?? Let me tell you that everyone in the community was in shock cause he was a firefighter...and he knew her from her mother being one. No one every thought he would do this..let alone be stalking her right outside her home...but just out of view. Its truly sad that you judged so easily because the victim here is a child and she can read and she did see what you said and she is hurt that you would attack her mother when she had no fault in this. It could happen to your child too in 5 secs...would you like to be called a bad parent too?..cause you will miss 5 seconds somewhere and it just depends who is standing there as to what could happen...

and btw Moral..you said and I quote "this Grafton resident is proud of our Police force and knows how valuable they are to our Community."...they were standing there watching these texts..he admitted what he did and then went on to say what he wanted to do..knowing it was wrong...I am damn proud of our police force..and so is the mother of the child. But if you think that this was entrapment you are saying that they had a hand in it which is far from the truth..
