MySpace Messages Lead To Arrest



Suspect admits he's 23 while propositioning 13-year-old:

A 23-year-old man has been arrested and charged with solicitation of a minor after posting various sexual related messages on a 13-year-old girl's MySpace page.

Michael Thomas Sherlock, of North Augusta, was arrested following a two week investigation by detectives after the sister of the teen told them he had been posting explicit comments to the young girl via MySpace.

According to the Edgefield Daily:
"In one reported message Sherlock said to the girl that age "was just a number" and then continued with sexually explicit acts he had planned for them."
I suppose "them" might have included the sister of the "victim". Who knows? The article doesn't really go into too much detail after all.

Regardless, Sherlock was later arrested and then quickly released on bond.

Anyway it appears our suspect was somewhat confused as to what his exact age might actually have been...as is evident from the various MySpace pages found here, here and him posing as 16 here.
