Sex sting websites
Perverted-Justice volunteers build profiles identified as underage individuals on social networking websites, and enter chat rooms as decoys.
They set up adults to message or email the decoy and begin a dialogue.
Authorities said two men tried to engage in sexual acts with a child.
Hansen stated, "Pedophiles have a very specific definition, people who are interested in prepubescent sex." The method that was used to catch these would-be sex offenders is derived from that normally used by Perverted-Justice.When the visitors arrive at the house, the decoy finds a reason to leave the room within seconds of meeting the visitor, at which point the visitors are confronted by Hansen who instructs them to "have a seat" and states that he "needs" to talk to them.Hansen questions each one at length about their intentions.The following men were arrested on July 21 and 22: Stanley Fluker, Joseph Overton, Anthony Hood, Mubarak Almakhalas, Barry Clark, Terry Hertle, Antwon Bryant, Dontae Hughes, Dylan Murray, Joseph Hayes, Vishal Patel, Elias Hernandez and Matthew Buckalew.Richardson said 31 men were charged with soliciting prostitution.
