Many of you have seen the Dateline NBC Shows – “To Catch a Predator”.
I was curious to find out how much time the typical predator caught in the sting would get. A Jacksonville man, Matthew Chitty (age 30), pleaded guilty of multiple counts of using a computer to solicit sex from a child. Mr. Chitty believed he was online chatting with a 14 year old, who was actually an undercover officer. Mr. Chitty was sentenced to 5 years probation and will have to register as a sex offender.
The computer is a great tool (but also a danger) to our children. It is important for every parent to monitor the child’s computer use because of the Matthew Chittys of this world. Jacksonville Man Sentenced 5 Years for Soliciting A Child for Sex.
