Most of them don't hit the media, as arrests of males trying to sexually abuse minors don't raise much interest by reporters, but they all hit the courthouse.Our organization is still bringing on chat-log contributors and phone verifiers.
Hopefully in the future Massachusetts will strengthen their laws and make it so the act of conversing sexually with a minor is prosecuted in a manner consistent with most of the rest of the country.
For now though, the outcome that Edward Rozmiarek has been fired, that the media has reported why, and now that his words and actions online have been documented...
However, due to the distance and Edward's paranoia, he was unwilling to make the trip over to New York.
This meant our contact there was unable to arrest him, due to Edward living in Massachusetts.
In April 2016 we've hit a new milestone, that of conviction number 600! On average, 50 convictions a year for twelve years now.
We've been working hard behind the scenes, still hitting the rooms and working with police. For those of you who only know us from "To Catch a Predator", we were working hard before TCAP and we're working hard after TCAP.And now we need to focus on looking for volunteers to do what we call phone verification.Rather than chat with people online, phone verifiers are young-sounding males and females over the age of 21 who call these individuals pretending to be the teenager that an internet predator is attempting to groom for sex.They work with our chat-room/social networking volunteers to build credibility for our decoy profiles.If you sound very young but are over the age of 21, we'd be very happy to hear from you in regards to this important volunteer position. We've become aware that someone is sending out fliers with our organization name on them.They worked with the district employing Rozmiarek to ensure he would no longer be working there and then searched his house.
