Phoenix woman uses MySpaace to have sex with teenage boys

Woman Accused Of Being Online Predator:

Police in the Phoenix, Arizona suburb of Goodyear say a 36-year-old woman used the web to pull a kind of “bait and switch” on teenage boys. The woman is now in jail.

Neighbors say there are plenty of kids in this new west Valley neighborhood where Peggy Ross lives.

Goodyear police claim 36-year-old Peggy Ross used the popular website myspace.com posting a phony profile to lure teenage boys to chat rooms, then to her home.

Cmdr. Ralph Mclaughlin says the picture she posted on myspace.com was not hers, but that of an unknown teenage girl.

Investigators say a 15-year-old boy eventually came forward, claiming he had sex with Ross who police say has three children of her own.

Police believe other boys were victimized but reluctant to come forward, perhaps because the suspect is a woman.

Again this is no different from any of the male predators that have been seen on this site.

Florida man uses MySpace to have sex with 14-year-old girl

MySpace contact results in man’s arrest:

BROOKSVILLE A 24-year-old Spring Hill man has been charged with sexual battery after he met a 14-year old girl on a popular Internet site, then had sex with her, according to an arrest affidavit from the Hernando County Sheriff’s Office.
James M. Tarduno, 3137 Wiltshire Ave., was arrested Tuesday and faces charges of lewd and lascivious battery on a child 12 years of age or older, but younger than 16.

The victim told investigators that she met Tarduno on MySpace.com, a popular social Internet site frequented by young people.

The two corresponded for a month online and through text messages on cell phones, then made arrangements to meet for sex, according to the report.

Tarduno met the victim at her house last Friday and they walked to Tarduno’s home, where they had sexual contact in the driveway, the report said. They also had sex in Tarduno’s station wagon, police said.

Tarduno later admitted to the sexual offense when contacted by investigators.

Like this story wasn’t creepy enough…

According to the report, Tarduno worked in security at Eckerd Youth Alternatives E-How-Kee Camp, a camp in Brooksville for troubled youngsters.

Tarduno started as a night watchman at the camp earlier this year and had no direct contact with youngsters there, said Lou Anne Banks, a spokeswoman for Eckerd Youth Alternatives, when reached Tuesday afternoon.

Banks said Tarduno passed law enforcement background checks at the time of his application. She said Tarduno ‘no longer works with us as of this morning.’

When I was 24 I dated one girl who was 21 and another who was 19. 19 is still a little young for a 24-year-old but she was still LEGAL!!! I’ll never understand how any legal adult in their right mind would want to have sex with a 14-year-old girl.

I couldn’t find the MySpace of the suspect at this time.

Alvarado pleads not guilty to rape

L.A. man pleads not guilty to sex charges with girl he met online:

This is a follow-up to the story of Luis Alvarado, a 19-year-old kid from L.A. who is accused of raping a 13-year-old girl…

VISTA A 19-year-old Los Angeles man, who allegedly molested a 13-year-old Oceanside girl he met through the Internet Web site MySpace.com, pleaded not guilty Monday to four counts of lewd acts upon a child.

Vista Superior Court Judge Aaron Katz ordered Luis Freddy Alvarado to remain jailed in lieu of $250,000 bail pending a bail review on Thursday.

Alvarado allegedly communicated with the victim on the social networking site, which is popular with teens, several times before traveling to Oceanside and assaulting the girl on March 12.

Attached to the charges are allegations that Alvarado caused bodily injury, used force or violence, befriended the alleged victim of purposes of committing a felony and engaged in substantial sexual conduct.

Detectives armed with warrants searched the home and vehicle of the defendant, a Hollywood High School student, seized a computer and other items, Oceanside police Sgt. Leonard Mata said last week.

I’m sorry but when I was 19 I was trying to get with girls older than me not younger. What’s wrong with these kids?

Question about Pamela Rogers

Pamela Rogers

I have a question. Why is it that Pamela Rogers is not being viewed as a pedophile like any other teacher that would have sex with a 13-year-old student? If it was a male teacher and a female student we’d all be crying out for his blood. But since she’s an attractive female and the student is male it’s considered “no big deal” and brings cries of “I wish I had teachers like that when I was 13”. Pamela Rogers is a pedophile, plain and simple. No different from any of the other scumbags that have been profiled here.

Man Allegedly Rapes Teen After Meeting On Myspace.Com:

CrimeFighters are investigating the alleged sexual assault of an Oceanside teenager. The victim apparently met her attacker on the popular website myspace.com.

Nineteen-year-old Luis Alvarado was arrested in Hollywood and booked into the Vista Detention Facility.

Police say Alvarado drove to Oceanside last month to meet the 13-year-old victim, after they’d met on the website.

Could this be his MySpace profile. If not the guy on it is a dead ringer. If it is him it makes this blog entry even more disturbing…

hmm i’m thinking i may be more in love with the idea of being in love than i actually am in love with anyone i may say it to. i mean i feel something in me towards those individuals. the idea is what gets to me and is something i want, guessing that’s what helps my writing and so forth. how must it feel though? i’m too young to truly understand its nature but i know once in a while i am hinted towards what it may be, but then I’m left with a yearning for it wanting it more and more, then there’s just this cold bitter feeling that it has escaped me. must find it i suppose. I figuere it’s this enormous feeling that is overwhelming and may choke me as a whole with its deepening caresses but it feels far and distant, but it’s warmth is there drawing me in. help me in my search, thiis i bid of you. ok?

Rape does not equal love.

Mom finds her teen’s secret life on MySpace:

Another parent with no clue waking up to the harsh reality of their kids and the internet…

Q: My 15-year-old daughter has a MySpace website (I overheard her talking about it on the phone with a girlfriend), and I was able to check it out last week. I was astonished with what I found a group picture with a bunch of her best friends, apparently at a party, most with a can of beer in their hand. She wasn’t holding a beer, but she was surrounded by kids who were. I also read some (but not all) of the notes on the site from her friends, and many were OK, but some were suggestive of other parties and some skipping of school. This is all news to me, and I don’t know how to approach her. I’m furious, but I’m also concerned and want to let her know that this behavior is not fine with me. But will she think that I was snooping? How is the best way to handle this?

Who cares if she thinks you were snooping? You’re the parent. If your kids do not practice common sense or good judgment online then it’s your job as a parent to watch out for them.

Congressman wants FTC to do parents’ job

Suburban congressman wants FTC to warn parents about MySpace:

So Congressman Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) wants the Federal Trade Commission to issue a national consumer alert warning for parents to look at the web pages their children are posting on MySpace. Isn’t that basically wasting taxpayers’ money on something that used to be known as common sense?

Pedophile teacher re-arrested

Ex-teacher rearrested in teen sex case:

McMINNVILLE, Tenn. (AP) A former elementary school teacher who spent six months in jail for having sex with a 13-year-old student was arrested again, this time for violating probation by apparently communicating with the victim.

Pamela Rogers, 28, was arrested Tuesday and released on $10,000 bond. A judge Wednesday ordered her to appear at a July 12 hearing.

Last August, Rogers reached a plea deal to serve nine months on an eight-year sentence, allowing her to avoid a trial on 28 charges of sexual battery and statutory rape. She was released from jail in February for good behavior.

Under terms of the plea deal, she was, among other things, ordered not to contact the victim or his family and not to use the Internet.

Authorities said she violated probation by establishing a website through the online social networking hub MySpace.com. The site features a blog that included what authorities said was communication between Rogers and the victim’s 17-year-old sister.

Rogers is also accused of issuing a cryptic message to the victim through the website by addressing his basketball jersey number, saying he was her hero and that she would not fall in love again for three years.

The website also features several pictures of Rogers in a bikini.

I was unable to find the MySpace in question and even if I did I’m not sure I would post it because of all the pervs who would be looking for the pic of the pedophile in a bikini.

H/T to my lovely and talented wife Jade.

UPDATE: According to this article her MySpace has been removed.
