Teen sex chat forbidden

How are they to tell the difference between the casual sinner and the criminal?

Her parents sent her to Catholic schools, and her mother, a retired district judge, now jokes that she wants her money back.

Her daughter’s beat is in the vilest corners of cyberspace, in chat rooms indicating “fetish” or various subgenres of flagrant peccancy.

After months of prowling Internet chat rooms, posing as the mother of two young daughters, Detective Michele Deery thought she had a live one: “parafling,” a married, middle-aged man who claimed he wanted to have sex with her kids.

But was he just playing a twisted game of seduction?

Shortly before six o’clock on the evening of Monday, September 19, 2005, Deery went to work in her cave, logging on to Yahoo and expertly navigating its public chat rooms.

In one of the many rooms labeled “fetish,” she logged on with the suggestive screen name “heatherscutiepies.” At this time of day the weirdos were coming home from work, bellying up to their home computers.

He had peeked into a number of active chats to see how many women were there, and logged on to the ones with a promising ratio.

His screen name, parafling, was a nod to paraflying, the tiny parachute/tricycle flying machines he had once or twice enjoyed.

Such ordinances answer society’s quest for moral clarity, positing a direct parallel between right versus wrong and legal versus criminal.

Police patrolling the precincts of sin do not often find the streets empty.

For this account, both Deery and J were willing to speak openly and at length; transcripts of online chats and police interrogations have also been made available.
