Disturbing Sex Sting Leads To Arrest


Full story and MySpace profile:

A Seattle-area man accused of taking a train to Portland last week to have sex with two boys was caught up in an undercover sting that began in an Internet chat room, according to federal court documents.

James E. Eggleston, 59, of Shoreline, Wash., is facing one count of interstate travel with the intent to engage in sexual acts with a person under the age of 12.

An affidavit filed by Special Agent James L. Mooney of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement in support of a criminal complaint against Eggleston revealed new details in the case.

According to the affidavit, Mooney first contacted a person with the screen name "jimmy2" in a chat room called "#baby&toddlerlove" on Feb. 10.

The two traded instant messages about having sex with children and eventually traded e-mail addresses. "Jimmy2" described himself as a patient care coordinator for "trauma/psych."

They later set up a plan for "jimmy2" to travel to Portland and have sex with Mooney's two boys, ages 3 and 5, who were fictitious.

According to the affidavit, Mooney was able to subpoena records that linked Eggleston to the "jimmy2" screen name and e-mail addresses used to send messages to Mooney.

At some point, the affidavit said, Mooney was e-mailed child porn from the Washington man.

During the ongoing communications, the Washington man claimed to have had sex with a neighbor boy who had moved away, several boys in Hong Kong and a girl in Texas, the affidavit said.
