Man Gets 26 Years For Attempted Sex Assault, Used MySpace


From January:

A man who posed as a teenager on the Internet to lure a 14-year-old girl to a spot where he tried to kidnap and molest her was sentenced to 26 years in prison Friday.

William Lee Pait Jr., 41, of Bladenboro, entered an Alford plea in Cumberland County Superior Court. That means he did not admit he did what he was charged with, but acknowledged there was enough evidence to convict him of first-degree kidnapping and taking indecent liberties with a minor.

At the time of the October attack in Fayetteville, Pait was on probation for a similar incident in Bladen County in 2004 and was on the N.C. Sex Offender Registry.

As part of the sentence he was given Friday, Pait will be required to wear an electronic monitoring device for the rest of his life once he gets out of prison.

According to investigators, Pait posed as a 17-year-old boy on the MySpace Web networking site and arranged to meet the girl while she was spending the night with a friend in Fayetteville.
