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...
We've revamped our communications a bit to be more newer volunteer friendly, so swing on by and help us get to 700 convictions.
Normally whenever we post a chat log on our website, it is of a person that has been convicted in their state.
but after it became apparent that Rozmiarek wasn't going to travel to New York, we knew we had to contact local law enforcement in his area.
We've been bringing on volunteers and restocking our roster of people working in chat-rooms and on social networking websites to bring internet predators to police.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.During the conversation, Rozmiarek made no attempt to hide his profession, openly and honestly talking about his job as a principal.In most cases doing decoy work, we often feel like we can take months and months to hold conversations...Unfortunately, the laws do vary greatly from state to state.There is little uniformity across the country in regards to this issue, from what constitutes an offense to the amount of time someone will serve.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.To illustrate that, this isn't just a note about our 600th conviction, but rather that we're shooting beyond 600 with two convictions scheduled to be posted each week until mid-June. We've been getting convictions now since our first... If you'd like to help us push towards 700, swing by our forums and say hello on our discord.We're taking volunteers for every position, from chat contributor to content creator to phone verifier and all that jazz.
