Sex Offender Posed As 20-Year-Old On MySpace To Lure Girl




Pennsylvania--The man in question is 33-year-old Michael E. Begin, who posed as a 20-year-old Marine on MySpace in order to have to sex with a 14-year-old girl he met on the popular social network.

Mr. Begin was arrested by police while waiting for the girl at a local restraunt in Bradford. A meeting had been set up prior to his arrest. He had brought with him handcuffs, a knife and some condoms.

The hero of this story is the child's mother, who initially found the explicit messages sent by Begin and set the whole thing in motion by immediately doing the following:

1. Took her daughter's cell phone away (He had been contacting her there also).
2. Changed her daughter's password on MySpace.
3. Removed all of Begin's messages and then saved them in a folder on the computer.
4. Contacted police.

Police then took over the girl's account and did the usual undercover sting operation posing as her.

Begin has previously been convicted on corruption of minors, indecent assault and indecent exposure charges.
