Man Who Solicited Teens On MySpace Busted


A Fort Drum soldier is under arrest charged with soliciting teens for sex using the popular website MySpace.com.

27-year-old Jason Scott Benge of Flower Avenue East is charged with Criminal Solicitation in the 3rd degree and Attempted Rape in the 3rd degree by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department. Benge allegedly used the website MySpace.com to arrange a meeting with what he thought was a 15-year-old teen and her 16-year-old friend for purposes of engaging in sexual activity with him and his girlfriend. The teen he believed he was propositioning was actually Detective Steven C. Cote of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department.

Benge allegedly sent sexually explicit e-mails to the teen, some while he was at work on Fort Drum. Fort Drum Military Police were contacted and assisted with tracing the emails to Benge.

Benge was arrested after meeting a female undercover officer in the town of Pamelia and identifying himself as the person who had been sending the messages.
